Each issuer of the Securities is the co-offeror, together with Warner Chilcott Limited, in each tender offer for the Securities of such issuer.


Per $1,000 principal amount.


The Total Consideration (as defined below) for Securities validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Date (as defined below) and accepted for purchase is calculated using the applicable Fixed Spread and is inclusive of the Early Tender Payment specified in the table.  The Total Consideration has been determined taking into account the applicable par call date for each series of Securities, if any, as described in the offer to purchase referenced below.

The tender offers consist of offers on the terms and conditions set forth in the offer to purchase, dated May 10, 2017, and the related letter of transmittal (as they may each be amended or supplemented from time to time, the "Tender Offer Documents"), including a financing condition that Allergan Funding SCS shall have issued and sold debt securities providing net proceeds at least equal to the aggregate maximum tender cap identified in the Tender Offer Documents. Allergan Funding SCS expects to satisfy the financing condition upon the closing of its previously announced proposed offer of senior notes, expected to occur on May 26, 2017. The Offerors (as defined in the Tender Offer Documents) refer investors to the Tender Offer Documents for the complete terms and conditions of the tender offers.

The Total Consideration listed in the table above for each $1,000 principal amount of a series of Securities (the "Total Consideration") was determined at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on May 24, 2017. Only holders of Securities who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Securities at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 23, 2017 (the "Early Tender Date") are eligible to receive the Total Consideration for Securities accepted for purchase. The Early Settlement Date (as defined in the Tender Offer Documents) is May 30, 2017. Holders will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the date the applicable Offerors make payment for such Securities.
