Aggregate principal amount outstanding as of March 21, 2016

(2)

 

Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes.

(3)

 

Holders will also receive accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date referenced herein.

(4)

 

Hypothetical Total Consideration as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 21, 2016 includes Early Tender Premium of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes calculated to the assumed Early Settlement Date of April 7, 2016.

     

The amount of each series of Notes that may be accepted for purchase will be determined in accordance with the Acceptance Priority Levels set forth in the table above and may be prorated as described in the Offer to Purchase. The tender offer for each series of Notes will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on April 18, 2016, (the “Expiration Time”), unless extended by the Company. Holders who wish to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration (as defined below), which includes an Early Tender Premium specified in the table above, must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Notes at any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 4, 2016 (such time and date, as it may be extended, the “Early Tender Date”). Holders tendering their Notes after the Early Tender Date and at or prior to the Expiration Time will be eligible to receive only an amount equal to the Total Consideration (as defined below) minus the Early Tender Premium specified in the table above. Tenders of Notes may be validly withdrawn at any time up until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 4, 2016, unless such date and time are extended by the Company (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Withdrawal Deadline”). Notes may not be withdrawn after the Withdrawal Deadline unless SHC is required by law to permit withdrawal.

 

All Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by the Early Tender Date of a series with Acceptance Priority Level 1 will be accepted for purchase before any Notes of a series with Acceptance Priority Level 2 validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by the Early Tender Date are accepted for purchase. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the tender offer, if the aggregate principal amount of all Notes with Acceptance Priority Level 1 validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by the Early Tender Date exceeds the Maximum Tender Amount, such Notes will be accepted for purchase on a prorated basis as described in the Offer to Purchase, such that the aggregate principal amount of the Notes accepted in the tender offer equals the Maximum Tender Amount. In that event, no Notes with Acceptance Priority Level 2 will be accepted for purchase. If the aggregate principal amount of all Notes with Acceptance Priority Level 1 validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by the Early Tender Date does not exceed the Maximum Tender Amount, the Company will accept for purchase Notes of a series with Acceptance Priority Level 2 validly tendered and not validly withdrawn by the Early Tender Date on a prorated basis, if necessary, such that the Company does not exceed the Maximum Tender Amount.

 

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the tender offer, if the purchase of all Notes validly tendered at or before the Early Tender Date would not cause the Company to purchase an aggregate principal amount of Notes in excess of the Maximum Tender Amount, the Company will accept for purchase Notes with Acceptance Priority Level 1 validly tendered and not validly withdrawn after the Early Tender Date and at or before the Expiration Time, provided that in no event will the aggregate principal amount of Notes purchased exceed the Maximum Tender Amount. If the aggregate principal amount of such Acceptance Priority Level 1 Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn exceeds the Maximum Tender Amount, the Company will accept such Notes for purchase on a prorated basis as described in the Offer to Purchase, in an aggregate principal amount equal to the capacity of the Maximum Tender Amount remaining available for application to Notes following the purchase of Notes tendered at or before the Early Tender Date. If the purchase of Acceptance Priority Level 1 Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date would not cause the Company to purchase an aggregate principal amount of Notes in excess of the Maximum Tender Amount, the Company will accept for purchase the maximum aggregate principal amount of acceptance Priority Level 2 Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Date and at or before the Expiration Time, on a prorated basis if necessary, such that the Company will purchase the maximum aggregate principal amount of Notes that does not exceed the Maximum Tender Amount. Subject to applicable law, the Company has the right to increase or decrease the Maximum Tender Amount at its discretion. The Company may increase or decrease the Maximum Tender Amount after the Withdrawal Deadline without extending or reinstituting the withdrawal rights.

 

For Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase, the applicable total consideration per $1,000 principal amount of each series of Notes (for each series, the “Total Consideration”) will be a price determined as described in the Offer to Purchase intended to result in a yield to maturity (calculated in accordance with standard market practice) equal to the sum of (i) the yield to maturity for the applicable United States Treasury (“UST”) Reference Security specified in the table above, calculated based on the bid-side price of such UST Reference Security as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on Tuesday, April 5, 2016 (the first business day following the Early Tender Date), plus (ii) the applicable Fixed Spread specified in the table above.

 

In addition, payments for Notes purchased will include accrued interest up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date specified in the Offer to Purchase.

 

As previously announced, on August 25, 2015, Cameron, SHC, Rain Merger Sub LLC and Schlumberger Limited entered into a merger agreement, pursuant to which Cameron will become a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of SHC (the “Merger”). The consummation of the tender offer is conditioned upon the completion of the Merger, among other conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase. The Company reserves the right to waive all conditions of the tender offer other than the condition regarding the completion of the Merger.

 

SHC has retained Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC as dealer managers, and D.F. King & Co., Inc. as the depositary and information agent for the tender offer.
