The applicable Total Consideration for the Maximum Tender Offer Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on March 9, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated.

The principal amount of each series of Maximum Tender Offer Notes listed in the table above ultimately accepted for purchase will be determined in accordance with the Aggregate Maximum Repurchase Amount and the Acceptance Priority Levels set forth in the table above, in each case as further described in the Offer to Purchase. As a result, a holder who validly tenders Maximum Tender Offer Notes pursuant to the Maximum Tender Offer may have all or a portion of its Maximum Tender Offer Notes returned to it, and the amount of Maximum Tender Offer Notes returned will depend on the overall level of participation of holders in the Maximum Tender Offer and on the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions of the Maximum Tender Offer.

Holders of Maximum Tender Offer Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Date, if accepted for purchase, will be eligible to receive the Total Consideration, which includes an Early Tender Payment of $50 per $1,000 principal amount or €50 per €1,000 principal amount, as applicable, of Maximum Tender Offer Notes validly tendered by such holders and accepted for purchase by FIS. Payments for Maximum Tender Offer Notes accepted for purchase will include accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date applicable to the relevant series of Maximum Tender Offer Notes up to, but excluding, the applicable settlement date for such series of Maximum Tender Offer Notes accepted for purchase. It is anticipated that payment for the Maximum Tender Offer Notes that are validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Date will be March 10, 2021.

The Maximum Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on March 22, 2021 (the “Maximum Tender Expiration Date”), unless extended or earlier terminated. Because the Maximum Tender Offer has been fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Date, holders who tender Maximum Tender Offer Notes after the Early Tender Date will not have any of their Maximum Tender Offer Notes accepted for purchase. Any Maximum Tender Offer Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date, together with any Maximum Tender Offer Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date but not accepted for purchase by FIS, will be returned to the holders thereof as described in the Offer to Purchase.

The withdrawal deadline for the Maximum Tender Offer was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 8, 2021 and has not been extended. Accordingly, previously tendered Maximum Tender Offer Notes and Maximum Tender Offer Notes tendered after such withdrawal deadline may not be withdrawn, subject to applicable law.

FIS’ obligation to accept for payment and to pay for the Maximum Tender Offer Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Maximum Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions described in the Offer to Purchase. The Maximum Tender Offer may be terminated or withdrawn in whole or terminated or withdrawn with respect to any series of Maximum Tender Offer Notes, subject to applicable law. FIS reserves the right, subject to applicable law, to: (i) waive any and all conditions to the Maximum Tender Offer, (ii) extend or terminate the Maximum Tender Offer, (iii) increase or decrease the Aggregate Maximum Repurchase Amount or (iv) otherwise amend the Maximum Tender Offer in any respect.
