The deadline to validly withdraw tenders has passed. Accordingly, the Notes that were validly tendered and not withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline may not be withdrawn, except in limited circumstances where additional withdrawal rights are required by law.

As previously announced, the total consideration, or the Total Consideration, to be paid in the Offer for Notes that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement by reference to a fixed spread over the yield to maturity of the U.S. Treasury reference security specified in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement and will include an early tender payment of $50 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase. The Total Consideration will be determined at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on May 30, 2024.

Tenders of Notes will be accepted only in principal amounts equal to $1,000 or integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof. Holders who tender less than all of their Notes must continue to hold Notes of such series in the minimum authorized denomination of $1,000 principal amount or an integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof.

Payments for tendered Notes will include accrued and unpaid interest from and including the most recent interest payment date for the Notes up to, but not including, the settlement date, which is expected to be June 3, 2024, or the Early Settlement Date, subject to all conditions to the Offer having been either satisfied or waived by SVC.

In connection with the Offer, SVC solicited consents from holders of Notes to proposed amendments to the Indenture which allow SVC to deposit cash and/or U.S. government securities with the trustee for the Notes in order to effect satisfaction and discharge of the Indenture as it relates to the Notes, or the Satisfaction and Discharge. SVC has received the requisite consents for these amendments, and currently expects to effect the Satisfaction and Discharge with respect to any Notes not purchased in the Offer on the Early Settlement Date on or shortly following the Early Settlement Date. However, SVC is not obligated to undertake the Satisfaction and Discharge on the anticipated timeline, or at all.
