The consideration (the "Total Consideration") offered for each $1,000 principal amount of the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the fixed spread for the Notes specified in the table above plus the yield to maturity based on the bid-side price of the U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified in the table above, as quoted on the Bloomberg Bond Trader FIT1 page as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 26, 2020, unless extended by the Operating Partnership. Holders must validly tender (and not validly withdraw) their Notes at or prior to the Expiration Date (as defined below), or deliver a properly completed and duly executed Notice of Guaranteed Delivery for their Notes at or prior to the Expiration Date and tender their Notes at or prior to the Guaranteed Delivery Date (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), in accordance with the instructions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, in order to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration. In addition, the Operating Partnership will pay accrued and unpaid interest (the "Accrued Interest"), if any, in respect of any Notes purchased in the Tender Offer from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Settlement Date (as defined below).
The principal purpose of the Tender Offer is to purchase the Notes, as part of a debt refinancing consisting of the Tender Offer and the recent issuance of the Operating Partnership's 4.050% Senior Notes due 2030. The Notes that are accepted in the Tender Offer will be purchased by the Operating Partnership and retired and cancelled and will no longer remain outstanding obligations of the Operating Partnership.
The Tender Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 26, 2020, or any other date and time to which the Tender Offer is extended (such date and time, as they may be extended with respect to the Notes, the "Expiration Date").
The settlement date for Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and accepted for purchase and delivered at or prior to the Expiration Date (as defined below) other than accepted Notes delivered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures (described in the Offer Documents) is expected to be June 29,2020 (the "Settlement Date"). On the Settlement Date, the Total Consideration, plus an amount equal to the Accrued Interest thereon, will be payable in cash for those Notes that are validly tendered and accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer, other than accepted Notes delivered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures. Notes validly tendered and accepted that are delivered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures will receive payment of the Total Consideration, plus an amount equal to the Accrued Interest thereon, on July 1, 2020 (the "Guaranteed Delivery Settlement Date"), the first business day after the Guaranteed Delivery Date and three business days after the Expiration Date. For the avoidance of doubt, Accrued Interest will cease to accrue on the Settlement Date for all Notes accepted in the Tender Offer, including Notes delivered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures, and the Accrued Interest for all Notes accepted in the Tender Offer will not include any additional interest. Since the Operating Partnership expects that the Guaranteed Delivery Settlement Date will be two business days after the Settlement Date, holders tendering Notes pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures will not receive interest for such two business day period.
The Operating Partnership's obligation to accept for purchase and to pay for the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, which are more fully described in the Offer to Purchase.
