(a) 

The offers with respect to the Maximum Tender Offer Notes are subject to the Aggregate Maximum Repurchase Amount. FIS will allocate the Aggregate Maximum Repurchase Amount to purchase Maximum Tender Offer Notes subject to the Acceptance Priority Level as more fully set forth in the Offer to Purchase (as defined below).

(b)

Per $1,000 principal amount.

(c)

The Total Consideration for Maximum Tender Offer Notes validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Date (as defined below) and accepted for purchase is calculated using the applicable Fixed Spread (as defined below) and is inclusive of the Early Tender Payment.

The Any and All Tender Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 2, 2019, unless extended or earlier terminated (the “Any and All Expiration Date”). Holders of the Any and All Notes must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Any and All Notes prior to or at the Any and All Expiration Date to be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration (as defined below) for such Any and All Notes.

The Maximum Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on December 19, 2019, unless extended or earlier terminated (the “Maximum Tender Expiration Date”). Holders of the Maximum Tender Offer Notes must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Maximum Tender Offer Notes prior to or at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 5, 2019, unless extended or earlier terminated (the “Early Tender Date”), to be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration for such Maximum Tender Offer Notes, which is inclusive of an amount in cash equal to the applicable amount set forth in the second table above under the heading “Early Tender Payment” (the “Early Tender Payment”). Holders of the Maximum Tender Offer Notes who validly tender their Maximum Tender Offer Notes after the Early Tender Date but prior to or at the Maximum Tender Expiration Date will be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration for such Maximum Tender Offer Notes minus the Early Tender Payment.

All Maximum Tender Offer Notes tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Date will be accepted based on the acceptance priority levels noted in the second table above and will have priority over Maximum Tender Offer Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date, regardless of the acceptance priority levels of the Maximum Tender Offer Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date. Subject to applicable law, FIS may increase or decrease the amounts of cash available for purchase of any of the Maximum Tender Offer Notes in its sole discretion.

The applicable consideration (the “Total Consideration”) payable for each $1,000 principal amount of each series of Securities validly tendered and accepted for payment pursuant to the Tender Offers will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the applicable fixed spread for such Security (the “Fixed Spread”) specified in the table above plus the applicable yield to par call date based on the bid-side price of the applicable U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified in the applicable table above, calculated as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 2, 2019, in the case of the Any and All Tender Offer, and at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on December 6, 2019, in the case of the Maximum Tender Offer, in each case unless extended or earlier terminated. In addition to the Total Consideration, FIS will also pay accrued and unpaid interest on Securities purchased up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date. The settlement date for the Any and All Tender Offer is expected to be promptly after the Any and All Expiration Date and is expected to be December 3, 2019. The settlement date for the Maximum Tender Offer Notes validly tendered and accepted for payment on the Early Tender Date is expected to be promptly after the Early Tender Date and is expected to be December 9, 2019. The settlement date for the Maximum Tender Offer Notes validly tendered and accepted for payment after the Early Tender Date is expected to be promptly after the Maximum Tender Expiration Date and is expected to be December 20, 2019.

Any and All Notes tendered pursuant to the Any and All Tender Offer may be withdrawn prior to or at, but not after, 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 2, 2019, and Maximum Tender Offer Notes tendered pursuant to the Maximum Tender Offer may be withdrawn prior to or at, but not after, 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 5, 2019 (such dates and times, as they may be extended with respect to the Any and All Notes or a series of Maximum Tender Offer Notes, the applicable “Withdrawal Deadline”).

After the applicable Withdrawal Deadline, you may not withdraw your tendered Securities unless FIS amends the applicable Tender Offer in a manner that is materially adverse to the tendering holders, in which case withdrawal rights may be extended as FIS determines, to the extent required by law (as determined by FIS), appropriate to allow tendering holders a reasonable opportunity to respond to such amendment. Additionally, FIS, in its sole discretion, may extend a Withdrawal Deadline for any purpose. If a custodian bank, broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee holds your Securities, such nominee may have an earlier deadline or deadlines for receiving instructions to withdraw tendered Securities.

The Tender Offers are being made pursuant to an Offer to Purchase, dated November 21, 2019 (the “Offer to Purchase”), which sets forth a more detailed description of the Tender Offers. Holders of the Securities are urged to read carefully the Offer to Purchase before making any decision with respect to the Tender Offers.

FIS’ obligation to accept for payment and to pay for the Securities validly tendered in the Tender Offers is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, including a financing condition. The Tender Offers may be terminated or withdrawn in whole or terminated or withdrawn with respect to any series of the Securities, subject to applicable law. FIS reserves the right, subject to applicable law, to (i) waive any and all conditions to any of the Tender Offers, (ii) extend or terminate any of the Tender Offers, (iii) increase or decrease the Aggregate Maximum Repurchase Amount, or (iv) otherwise amend any of the Tender Offers in any respect.
