Holders will also receive accrued and unpaid interest from the applicable last interest payment with respect to the Notes accepted for purchase to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date (as defined below) or the Final Settlement Date (as defined below), as applicable.


Includes the Early Tender Premium.

The terms and conditions of the Tender Offers are described in an Offer to Purchase, dated May 11, 2020 (the “Offer to Purchase”). Pioneer intends to fund the Tender Offers, including accrued interest and fees and expenses payable in connection with the Tender Offers, with the net proceeds of its separately announced proposed private offering of convertible debt securities (the “Debt Financing”).

Holders of Notes that are validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 22, 2020 (such date and time, as it may be extended, the “Early Tender Date”) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will receive the applicable Total Consideration set forth in the table above, which includes an early tender premium of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes accepted for purchase (the “Early Tender Premium”). Holders of Notes tendering their Notes after the Early Tender Date and prior to the Expiration Date will only be eligible to receive the applicable Tender Offer Consideration for such series of Notes set forth in the table above, which is the applicable Total Consideration minus the Early Tender Premium.

In addition to the Tender Offer Consideration or the Total Consideration, as applicable, all holders of Notes accepted for purchase will receive accrued and unpaid interest from and including the last interest payment date applicable to the relevant series of Notes up to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date (as defined below) for such Notes.

Tendered Notes may be withdrawn at any time prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 22, 2020 (the “Withdrawal Date”) and may not be validly withdrawn thereafter except as provided in the Offer to Purchase or applicable law.

The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 8, 2020, unless extended by Pioneer in its sole discretion (the “Expiration Date”).

Provided that the conditions to the applicable Tender Offer have been satisfied or waived, and assuming acceptance for purchase by Pioneer of the Notes validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offers, (i) payment for Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase in the Tender Offers will be made on the settlement date that is expected to be the second business day following the Early Tender Date, or as promptly as practicable thereafter (the “Early Settlement Date”) and (ii) payment for any Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Date, but at or prior to the Expiration Date, and accepted for purchase in the Tender Offers will be made on the settlement date that is expected to be the second business day following the Expiration Date (the “Final Settlement Date” and, together with the related Early Settlement Date, the “Settlement Dates”).

Subject to the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount and proration, the Notes accepted for payment on any Settlement Date will be accepted in accordance with their Acceptance Priority Levels set forth in the table above, with 1 being the highest Acceptance Priority Level and 3 being the lowest Acceptance Priority Level; provided that Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date will be accepted for purchase with priority over Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date, even if such Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date have a higher Acceptance Priority Level.

Acceptance for tenders of any Notes may be subject to proration if the aggregate principal amount for any series of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn would cause the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount to be exceeded. Furthermore, if the Tender Offers are fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Date, holders who validly tender Notes after the Early Tender Date will not have any of such Notes accepted for purchase.

The Company reserves the right, but is under no obligation, to increase the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount at any time, subject to compliance with applicable law, which could result in the Company purchasing a greater aggregate principal amount of Notes in the Tender Offers. There can be no assurance that the Company will exercise its right to increase the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount. If the Company increases the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, it does not expect to extend the Withdrawal Date, subject to applicable law. Accordingly, holders should not tender any Notes that they do not wish to have purchased in the Tender Offers.

The Tender Offers are not contingent upon the tender of any minimum principal amount of Notes. Pioneer’s obligation to accept for purchase and to pay for the Notes validly tendered in any Tender Offer is subject to and conditioned on the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, including the completion of the Debt Financing. Pioneer reserves the right, subject to applicable law, to: (a) extend the Early Tender Date, Withdrawal Date or Expiration Date to a later date and time as announced by the Company; (b) increase the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount; (c) waive or modify in whole or in part any or all conditions to the Tender Offers; (d) delay the acceptance for purchase of any Notes or delay the purchase of any Notes; or (e) otherwise modify or terminate one or more of the Tender Offers.

Any questions regarding the terms of the Tender Offers should be directed to the Dealer Managers, Credit Suisse Securities at (toll-free) (800) 820-1653 or (collect) (212) 538-5828 or Goldman Sachs & Co.
