The terms and conditions of the Offer are set forth in the offer to purchase, dated June 16, 2020, as amended by the press release dated June 16, 2020, and as further amended by this press release (as the same may be further amended or supplemented, the "Offer to Purchase"). The Offer will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of July 14, 2020, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Offeror.
As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 29, 2020 (such time and date, as they may be extended, the "Early Tender Time"), according to information provided by D.F. King & Co., Inc., the tender and information agent for the Offer, the aggregate principal amount of the Notes set forth in the table above under "Principal Amount Tendered at Early Tender Time" had been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Offer. Withdrawal rights for the Notes expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 29, 2020.
The Total Consideration for each U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes of each series validly tendered and accepted for purchase will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase, so as to result in a price as of the Settlement Date based on a yield to the Par Call Date (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) or maturity date (in accordance with market practice) for the Notes of such series equal to the sum of the fixed spread listed above for such series plus the yield based on the bid-side price of the reference security (the "Reference Treasury") listed above for such series, as quoted on the applicable page on the Bloomberg Bond Trader FIT1 series of pages, or any recognized quotation source selected by the dealer managers in their sole discretion if such quotation report is not available or manifestly erroneous, at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, today, and is inclusive of the Early Tender Premium (as set forth in the table above).
Welltower expects to announce the pricing of the Offer later today.
Only holders of Notes who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to the Early Tender Time are eligible to receive the Total Consideration for the Notes accepted for purchase. Holders of Notes will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on their Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase from, and including, the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date.
Welltower has satisfied the financing condition to the Offer and, on July 1, 2020, expects to pay for the Notes that were validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Time and that are accepted for purchase.
Since the Offer for the Notes was fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Time, Welltower will not accept for purchase any Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time. Because the aggregate principal amount of all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Early Tern Time does not exceed the Maximum Principal Amount, we will accept for purchase all such tendered Notes.

King & Co., Inc. to serve as tender and information agent for the Offer. The full details of the Offer, including complete instructions on how to tender Notes, are included in the Offer to Purchase.
