Price Determination Time
2:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 13, 2022, unless the Tender Offer is extended or earlier terminated.
5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 13, 2022, unless the Tender Offer is extended or earlier terminated.
Guaranteed Delivery Time
5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the second business day after the Expiration Time (such day, the "Guaranteed Delivery Date"), expected to be January 18, 2022, assuming that the Tender Offer is not extended or earlier terminated.
Assuming the Tender Offer is not extended, The Doctors Company expects the Settlement Date to be the third business day after the Expiration Time (as defined below), which is expected to be January 19, 2022, for all Notes validly tendered and accepted in the Tender Offer, including accepted Notes that are delivered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures.
The Tender Offer is being made upon, and is subject to, the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated January 7, 2022 (the “Offer to Purchase”), and the related Notice of Guaranteed Delivery (the Notice of Guaranteed Delivery, together with the Offer to Purchase, the “Offer Documents”). The Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 13, 2022, unless extended or earlier terminated (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Time”). Holders must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to the Expiration Time, or deliver a properly completed and duly executed Notice of Guaranteed Delivery for their Notes at or prior to the Expiration Time and deliver their Notes at or prior to the Guaranteed Delivery Time, in accordance with the instructions set forth in the Offer of Purchase, to be eligible to receive the applicable consideration. Holders who validly tender their Notes may validly withdraw their tendered Notes when and in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase.
The consideration paid in the Tender Offer for Notes that are validly tendered and accepted for purchase will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the fixed spread over the yield based on the bid side price of the U.S. Treasury Security, as specified in the table above, as calculated by the Dealer Manager (as defined below) at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 13, 2022. Payments for Notes purchased in the Tender Offer will include accrued and unpaid interest thereon from and including the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Settlement Date, which is expected to be January 19, 2022. For the avoidance of doubt, accrued interest will cease to accrue on the Settlement Date for all Notes accepted in the Tender Offer, including accepted Notes that are delivered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures.
The Tender Offer is conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, including, among other things, the consummation of one or more debt capital markets issuances by The Doctors Company in an aggregate principal amount of at least $500,000,000 (the “Financing Condition”). The Tender Offer is not conditioned upon any minimum amount of Notes being tendered. The Tender Offer may be extended, amended, terminated, or withdrawn.

Global Bondholder Services Corporation is the Depositary and Information Agent.
