(“HP”) (NYSE: HPQ) today announced the early tender results as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 10, 2023 (the “Early Tender Deadline”) for its previously announced cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase up to a combined aggregate purchase price, including the applicable Early Tender Premium (as defined below) but excluding accrued and unpaid interest (the “Purchase Price”), of the notes listed in the table below (collectively, the “Notes,” and each a “Series” of Notes) equal to $1,000,000,000 (the “Maximum Amount”) from each registered holder of the applicable Series of Notes (each, a “Holder,” and collectively, the “Holders”). The Tender Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 25, 2023, unless extended or earlier terminated by HP (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Time”).

(1) The aggregate Purchase Price of Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Tender Deadline will likely exceed the Maximum Amount. Therefore, HP does not expect to accept for purchase any tenders of Notes at Acceptance Priority Levels 4 through 7.
Because the aggregate Purchase Price of Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Tender Deadline will likely exceed the Maximum Amount, HP does not expect to accept any further tenders of Notes. HP will accept for payment, up to the Maximum Amount, Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in accordance with the acceptance priority levels specified in the table above and on the cover page of the Offer to Purchase (as defined below) in the column entitled “Acceptance Priority Level” (the “Acceptance Priority Level”). Moreover, HP expects to increase the Maximum Amount, subject to the calculation of the consideration to be paid in the Tender Offer, in order to accept for payment all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline with Acceptance Priority Levels 1 through 3. HP expects to accept none of the Notes tendered with Acceptance Priority Levels 4 through 7.
The complete terms of the Tender Offer are set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated June 26, 2023 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Offer to Purchase”). Consummation of the Tender Offer is subject to a number of conditions, including the absence of certain adverse legal and market developments. Subject to applicable law, HP may waive any and all of these conditions or extend, terminate or withdraw the Tender Offer with respect to one or more Series of Notes and/or increase or decrease the Maximum Amount. The Tender Offer is not conditioned upon any minimum amount of Notes being tendered. There are no guaranteed delivery provisions applicable to the Tender Offer.
Holders of Notes must have validly tendered and not validly withdrawn their Notes at or before the Early Tender Deadline to be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration (as described in the Offer to Purchase) for their tendered Notes, which includes an early tender payment of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes accepted for purchase (the “Early Tender Premium”). The “Total Consideration” for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes of any Series tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the applicable fixed spread specified for such Series (as described in the Offer to Purchase) over the yield corresponding to the bid-side price of the applicable Reference U.S. Treasury Security specified for such Series, as calculated by BofA Securities, Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on July 11, 2023. Assuming the Tender Offer is not extended and the conditions to the Tender Offer are satisfied or waived, HP expects that settlement for Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or before the Early Tender Deadline will be on July 27, 2023 (the “Settlement Date”). Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on their purchased Notes from the last interest payment date for such Notes to, but excluding, the Settlement Date. As of the Early Tender Deadline, the Holders’ withdrawal rights have expired.
