The Tender Offer and the Offer to Purchase are hereby amended as follows:
- The 2024 Tender Cap is amended to decrease it to US$81,840,462.50 so that Bombardier may purchase on the Early Settlement Date up to US$81,840,462.50 in aggregate purchase price (exclusive of Accrued Interest) of the 2024 Notes.
- The 2025 Tender Cap is amended to increase it to US$118,159,537.50 so that Bombardier may purchase on the Early Settlement Date up to US$118,159,537.50 in aggregate purchase price (exclusive of Accrued Interest) of the 2025 Notes.
As of the Early Tender Date for the Tender Offer, US$80,930,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2024 Notes (16.96%) were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, and US$344,112,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2025 Notes (27.37%) were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn.

On the Early Settlement Date, the aggregate total purchase price payable under the Offer to Purchase (as amended hereby) for Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase will have reached the 2024 Tender Cap (as amended hereby) with respect to the 2024 Notes, and the 2025 Tender Cap (as amended hereby) with respect to the 2025 Notes. As a result of the amount of 2024 Notes and 2025 Notes accepted for purchase on the Early Settlement Date, no Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date will under the terms of the Offer to Purchase (as amended hereby) be accepted for payment unless, in the Corporation’s sole and absolute discretion, the terms of the Tender Offer are further amended or waived by the Corporation to permit further purchases of the 2024 Notes or 2025 Notes. There can be no assurance that the Corporation will further amend or waive any terms of the Tender Offer to accept any Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date or amend the Tender Offer in any other respect.
Except as expressly set forth herein, the terms and conditions with respect to the Tender Offer are as set forth in the Offer to Purchase, subject to the Corporation’s right to further waive, amend or terminate any provisions of the Tender Offer, in the Corporation’s sole and absolute discretion.
The obligation of the Corporation to accept for purchase, and to pay for, Notes validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer is subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions as set forth in the Offer to Purchase, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Corporation.
None of Bombardier, the trustees for the Notes, the agents under the respective indentures for the Notes, the dealer managers, the information and tender agent, any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates or any of its or their respective directors, officers, employees or representatives makes any recommendation to Holders as to whether or not to tender all or any portion of their Notes, and none of the foregoing has authorized any person to make any such recommendation.
