(1) Includes U.S.$31,382,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes held by CEMEX, as of the date of the Offer to Purchase.

(2) Per U.S.$1,000 principal amount.

(3) Excluding the Notes held by CEMEX.

 

CEMEX has accepted for purchase all U.S.$241,692,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered on or prior to the Early Tender Date. The early settlement date on which CEMEX will make payment for such Notes accepted in the Tender Offer is expected to be October 19, 2016 (the "Early Settlement Date").

Holders of Notes that validly tendered their Notes on or prior to the Early Tender Date and whose Notes have been accepted for purchase are entitled to receive U.S.$1,075.00 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase, which includes an early tender premium equal to U.S.$30 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase. Holders of Notes who validly tendered their Notes on or prior to the Early Tender Date and whose Notes have been accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on their accepted Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date. The total cash payment to purchase the accepted Notes on the Early Settlement Date will be approximately U.S.$264 million. Notes that have been validly tendered cannot be withdrawn, except as may be required by applicable law. The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 27, 2016 (the "Expiration Date").

 

If Notes are validly tendered such that the aggregate principal amount tendered exceeds the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, CEMEX will accept for purchase only the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount of such Notes, subject to the other conditions in the Offer to Purchase. Nonetheless, Notes tendered prior to the Early Tender Date, which have been accepted for purchase on the Early Settlement Date, will have priority over those Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date. If, on the final settlement date, only a portion of the Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date may be accepted for purchase consistent with the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, the aggregate principal amount of such Notes accepted for purchase will be prorated based upon the aggregate principal amount of Notes that have been validly tendered and not yet accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer (with appropriate adjustment to avoid purchases of Notes in a principal amount other than U.S.$200,000 and integral multiples of U.S.$1,000 in excess thereof), provided that in no event shall CEMEX be obligated to purchase an aggregate principal amount of Notes exceeding the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount.

 

Holders who tender Notes after the Early Tender Date but on or prior to the Expiration Date and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will be entitled to receive only the Base Consideration of U.S.$1,045.00 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase. Holders who validly tender their Notes in the Tender Offer after the Early Tender Date but on or prior to the Expiration Date and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on their accepted Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the final settlement date.

 

CEMEX reserves the right, subject to applicable law, to extend, withdraw or terminate the Tender Offer, increase or decrease the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount or otherwise amend the terms of the Tender Offer.

 

The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 27, 2016 and is subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, including, among others, CEMEX having consummated the borrowing of U.S.$500,000,000 under CEMEX's facilities agreement, dated September 29, 2014 (as amended and restated).
