Depending on the amounts of Notes tendered at the Expiration Time (as defined below), Republic may not purchase Notes with Acceptance Priority Levels 2, 3 or 4. The amounts of each series of Notes that are ultimately purchased in the tender offers will be determined in accordance with the Tender Cap, the Acceptance Priority Levels and the proration procedures described in the Offer to Purchase, as amended hereby. As a result, a holder who validly tenders Notes pursuant to the tender offers may have all or a portion of its Notes returned to it, and the amount of Notes returned will depend on the overall level of participation of holders in the tender offers.

Holders of the Notes subject to the tender offers who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to the Early Tender Time and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will receive the applicable Total Consideration, which includes an Early Tender Payment as described in the Offer to Purchase, as amended hereby. Holders of Notes who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Time but at or prior to 11:59 p.m. ET on July 1, 2016 (the "Expiration Time"), and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will receive the applicable Tender Offer Consideration, which is equal to the applicable Total Consideration minus the Early Tender Payment. Republic expects to issue a press release on June 20, 2016, to announce the Total Consideration payable in connection with the tender offers, which will be determined at 2:00 p.m. ET on June 20, 2016.

Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the tender offers will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on their purchased Notes from the last interest payment date for such Notes to, but not including, the Settlement Date. Subject to the terms and conditions of the tender offers, the Settlement Date will follow promptly after the Expiration Time and currently is expected to be July 5, 2016.

The tender offers may be amended, extended, terminated or withdrawn in whole or with respect to one or more series of Notes. The tender offers are not conditioned upon any minimum amount of Notes being tendered but are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, including Republic obtaining available funds through a debt financing to pay for all Notes accepted for purchase in the tender offers on terms and conditions acceptable to Republic, in its sole discretion.
