(1)

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

   

(2)

Per $1,000 principal amount.

   

(3)

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 (as defined below).  The Total Consideration will be 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.

   

(4)

Hypothetical Total Consideration is calculated on the basis of pricing for the applicable U.S. Treasury Reference Security as of 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on May 9, 2017. Hypothetical Total Consideration calculation assumes an Early Settlement Date of May 30, 2017 and is exclusive of Accrued Interest (as defined below). The actual Total Consideration payable pursuant to the tender offers will be calculated and determined as set forth in the offer to purchase referenced below. All holders of Securities accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the applicable last interest payment date up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date.

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 the offer to purchase for cash in the order of priority set forth in the table above, up to the applicable Maximum Tender SubCap (as set forth in the table above) of each series of the Securities, subject to an aggregate maximum tender cap of $2,000,000,000 in principal amount for all tendered series of Securities. There is no Maximum Tender SubCap applicable to the 4.550% notes due March 2035, the 3.375% notes due September 2020 or the 3.250% notes due October 2022.  The Offerors refer investors to the Tender Offer Documents for the complete terms and conditions of the tender offers.

The tender offers for the Securities will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 7, 2017, or, in each case, any other date and time to which the applicable Offeror extends the applicable tender offer (such date and time, as it may be extended with respect to a tender offer, the "Expiration Date"), unless earlier terminated. Holders of Securities must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Securities prior to or at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 23, 2017 (such date and time, as it may be extended with respect to a tender offer, the "Early Tender Date"), to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration (as defined below), which is inclusive of an amount in cash equal to the amount set forth in the table above under the heading "Early Tender Payment" (the "Early Tender Payment").  If a holder validly tenders Securities after the applicable Early Tender Date but prior to or at the applicable Expiration Date, the holder will only be eligible to receive the applicable Late Tender Offer Consideration (as defined below).

Holders will also receive accrued and unpaid interest ("Accrued Interest") on Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the applicable last interest payment date up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date.

The applicable consideration (the "Total Consideration") offered per $1,000 principal amount of each series of Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the applicable tender offer will be determined in the manner described in the Tender Offer Documents by reference to the applicable fixed spread for such Securities specified in the tables above plus the applicable yield based on the bid-side price of the applicable U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified in the tables above at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on May 24, 2017. The "Late Tender Offer Consideration" is equal to the Total Consideration minus the Early Tender Payment.

The tender offers will expire on the applicable Expiration Date. Except as set forth below, payment for the Securities that are validly tendered prior to or at the Expiration Date, which is currently anticipated to be June 7, is expected to be made on the second business day following the Expiration Date. The Offerors reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to make payment for Securities that are validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Date on an earlier settlement date, which would be a date following the Early Tender Date and prior to the Expiration Date on which the conditions to the satisfaction of the applicable tender offer are satisfied.

Tendered Securities may be withdrawn prior to or at, but not after, 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 23, 2017, or such other date and time to which the applicable Offeror extends the withdrawal deadline.

Following the expiration of the tender offers, the Offerors may redeem any Securities that are not tendered and accepted in the tender offers in accordance with the indentures governing the Securities.

The tender offers are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions which are specified in 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. The tender offers are not subject to minimum tender conditions.
