The Consent Payment is not subject to any proration.

Transaction Rationale
On August 12, 2022, the Offeror completed the sale of approximately 2,000 of its towers to Phoenix Tower International Chile SpA (“Phoenix“). As part of the transaction, the Offeror also entered into master lease agreements relating to the towers and also agreed to, subject to the achievement of certain milestones, build and sell additional towers to Phoenix (all of these transactions, together the “Towers Sales“) over the next several years.
The Towers Sales have had several transformational impacts on the Group’s business and the Proposed Amendments are intended to give the Group optimal flexibility to operate its business following such sale.
As part of the Towers Sales and the resulting leaseback of the towers necessary to operate its business, the Group will incur (and expects to continue to incur) a substantial amount of lease liabilities, which following the implementation of IFRS 16 (Leases), would be considered Indebtedness for the purposes of the Indentures and the calculation of Consolidated Net Leverage and related calculations thereunder. 
Likewise, the Group has already contracted to make sales of additional towers that are currently under construction, which will result in the Group receiving more proceeds from towers sales in the future.
Purchase Price
Tender Offer for 2024 Notes
Noteholders of the 2024 Notes that validly submit Tender Instructions by the Early Participation Deadline will, to the extent their 2024 Notes are accepted for purchase and are eligible to receive the 2024 Notes Consent Payment, receive consideration of US$995.00 in cash per US$1,000 principal amount of the 2024 Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Participation Deadline (the “2024 Notes Total Consideration“), which comprises consideration of US$952.50 in cash per US$1,000 principal amount of the 2024 Notes validly tendered (the “2024 Notes Tender Offer Consideration“), plus consideration of US$30.00 in cash per US$1,000 principal amount of the 2024 Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Participation Deadline (the “2024 Notes Early Tender Payment“), plus the 2024 Notes Consent Payment. The 2024 Notes Tender Offer Consideration and 2024 Notes Early Tender Payment are subject to proration and therefore, any Noteholders that tender 2024 Notes and such tendered 2024 Notes are prorated, will be eligible to receive the 2024 Notes Total Consideration only for the portion of such tendered 2024 Notes that are accepted for purchase. The 2024 Notes Consent Payment is not subject to any proration, and therefore, Noteholders who timely tender their 2024 Notes (which will constitute a deemed consent to the Proposed Amendments), will be eligible to receive the 2024 Notes Consent Payment regardless of whether or not such tendered 2024 Notes are prorated.  Noteholders of the 2024 Notes that validly submit Tender Instructions after the Early Participation Deadline, but prior to the Expiration Deadline, will, to the extent their 2024 Notes are accepted for purchase, receive the 2024 Notes Tender Offer Consideration only, without the 2024 Notes Early Tender Payment.  In all cases, Noteholders whose 2024 Notes are accepted for purchase will also receive Accrued Interest on such Notes.
Tender Offer for 2028 Notes
Noteholders of the 2028 Notes that validly submit Tender Instructions by the Early Participation Deadline will, to the extent their 2028 Notes are accepted for purchase and are eligible to receive the 2028 Notes Consent Payment, receive consideration of US$832.50 in cash per US$1,000 principal amount of the 2028 Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Participation Deadline (the “2028 Notes Total Consideration“), which comprises consideration of US$785.00 in cash per US$1,000 principal amount of the 2028 Notes validly tendered (the “2028 Notes Tender Offer Consideration“), plus consideration of US$30.00 in cash per US$1,000 principal amount of the 2028 Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Participation Deadline (the “2028 Notes Early Tender Payment“), plus the 2028 Notes Consent Payment. The 2028 Notes Tender Offer Consideration and 2028 Notes Early Tender Payment are subject to proration and therefore, any Noteholders that tender 2028 Notes and such tendered 2028 Notes are prorated, will be eligible to receive the 2028 Notes Total Consideration only for the portion of such tendered 2028 Notes that are accepted for purchase. The 2028 Notes Consent Payment is not subject to any proration, and therefore, Noteholders who timely tender their 2028 Notes (which will constitute a deemed consent to the Proposed Amendments), will be eligible to receive the 2028 Notes Consent Payment regardless of whether or not such tendered 2028 Notes are prorated.  Noteholders of the 2028 Notes that validly submit Tender Instructions after the Early Participation Deadline, but prior to the Expiration Deadline, will, to the extent their 2028 Notes are accepted for purchase, receive the 2028 Notes Tender Offer Consideration only, without the 2028 Notes Early Tender Payment.  In all cases, Noteholders whose 2028 Notes are accepted for purchase will also receive Accrued Interest on such Notes.
In the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation Memorandum, the 2024 Notes Total Consideration and the 2028 Notes Total Consideration are each referred to separately as the “Total Tender Consideration“, the 2024 Notes Tender Offer Consideration and the 2028 Notes Tender Offer Consideration are each referred to separately as an “Tender Offer Consideration” and the 2024 Notes Early Tender Payment and the 2028 Notes Early Tender Payment are each referred to separately as an “Early Tender Payment“.
Consent Solicitations
Before the Early Participation Deadline, (i) holders of 2024 Notes that validly deliver their consent to the Proposed Amendments, either via a Tender Instruction or a Consent Only Instruction, and are eligible to receive the 2024 Notes Consent Payment will be eligible to receive consideration in cash of US$12.50 per  US$1,000 principal amount of 2024 Notes (the “2024 Notes Consent Payment“) and (ii) holders of 2028 Notes that validly deliver their consent to the Proposed Amendments, either via a Tender Instruction or a Consent Only Instruction and are eligible to receive the 2028 Notes Consent Payment, will be eligible to receive consideration in cash of US$17.50 per US$1,000 principal amount of 2028 Notes (the “2028 Notes Consent Payment“). In the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation Memorandum, the 2024 Notes Consent Payment and the 2028 Notes Consent Payment are each referred to separately as the “Consent Payment“. The payment of the relevant Consent Payment is irrespective of whether such Notes are subject to proration pursuant to the Tender Offers, provided the applicable Relevant Conditions are satisfied and such Supplemental Indenture becomes effective.  A valid tender of Notes under a Tender Instruction prior to the Early Participation Deadline will constitute a consent, and a Noteholder which validly tenders their Notes will receive the Total Tender Consideration (assuming they validly submit Tender Instructions before the Early Participation Deadline and are eligible to receive the Consent Payment) subject to proration of the relevant Tender Offer Consideration and Early Tender Payment.  For the avoidance of doubt, there will be no proration applied to the consent solicitation and the payment of the Consent Payment and no Consent Payment will be made to any Noteholder who tenders their Notes after the Early Participation Deadline, unless they have submitted a valid Consent Only Instruction prior to such date.
Noteholders may also submit a Consent Only Instruction and no Tender Instruction, in which case they will receive only the Consent Payment, provided the Consent Only Instruction is received prior to the Early Participation Deadline, the applicable Relevant Conditions are satisfied and the relevant Supplemental Indenture becomes effective, but not the Tender Offer Consideration or the Total Tender Consideration.  If the Early Participation Deadline is extended for either or both of the series of Notes, the Issuer reserves the right to execute and deliver the Supplemental Indentures at any time the relevant Required Consents are obtained and the relevant Supplemental Indenture will be effective upon execution but the Proposed Amendments will only become operative once the Consent Payment is made with respect to the relevant series of Notes and the Relevant Conditions are satisfied or waived. In such a scenario, the Consent Payment will only be paid to those Holders who validly consent before the receipt of the relevant Required Consents, as applicable.
A Noteholder which takes no action to either submit a Tender Instruction or a Consent Only Instruction will receive no consideration with respect to the Offers, however, subject to the Relevant Conditions being satisfied for the applicable series, such Noteholder’s Notes will be subject to the Proposed Amendments once the relevant Consent Payment is paid to the Noteholders, and the respective Supplemental Indenture becomes operative, of the applicable series which did deliver a Tender Instruction or a Consent Only Instruction.

To tender Notes for purchase pursuant to the relevant Offer and to be eligible for the Total Tender Consideration including the relevant Consent Payment, a Noteholder should deliver, or arrange to have delivered on its behalf, via the relevant Clearing System through which its Notes are held and in accordance with the requirements of such Clearing System, a valid Tender Instruction that is received in each case by the Tender and Tabulation Agent by the Early Participation Deadline.  To receive the Tender Offer Consideration only, a Noteholder should deliver, or arrange to have delivered on its behalf, via the relevant Clearing System through which its Notes are held and in accordance with the requirements of such Clearing System, a valid Tender Instruction that is received in each case by the Tender and Tabulation Agent prior to the Expiration Deadline.
Noteholders are advised to check with any broker, dealer, custodian, trust company or other trustee, bank, securities broker or other intermediary through which they hold Notes when such broker, dealer, custodian, trust company or other trustee, bank, securities broker or other intermediary would need to receive instructions from a Noteholder in order for that Noteholder to be able to participate in, or (in the limited circumstances in which revocation is permitted) revoke their instruction to participate in, the relevant Tender Offer or the relevant Proposal by the deadline specified in the Tender and Consent Solicitation Memorandum. The deadlines set by any such intermediary and each Clearing System for the submission and withdrawal of Tender Instructions may be earlier than the relevant deadline specified in the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation Memorandum. Noteholders should contact any such bank, securities broker or other intermediary through which they hold their Notes as soon as possible to ensure the timely delivery of their Tender Instructions. Noteholders are solely responsible for arranging the timely delivery of their Tender Instructions.
Noteholders may only validly tender Notes in integral multiples of US$1,000; provided that Notes of US$200,000 or less may only be redeemed in whole and not in part and any 2024 Notes or 2028 Notes held by a Noteholder after tendering must be in a minimum denomination of US$200,000 or an integral multiple of US$1,000 in excess thereof.
Consent Only Instructions
NOTEHOLDERS SUBMITTING CONSENT ONLY INSTRUCTIONS WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE ANY TENDER OFFER CONSIDERATION, OR ANY OTHER FEE OR PAYMENT IN CONNECTION WITH AN OFFER OTHER THAN THE CONSENT PAYMENT.
A Noteholder that wishes to consent to the Proposed Amendments but who does not wish to submit Tender Instructions should submit a Consent Only Instruction. Each beneficial owner of Notes held through a DTC Participant must instruct such DTC Participant to cause its Notes to be consented through ATOP and in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation Memorandum.  Beneficial owners of Notes holding interests through Euroclear or Clearstream should contact Euroclear or Clearstream, as applicable, to instruct the relevant DTC Participants to cause its Notes to be consented as described above. It is only possible to consent to all of the Proposed Amendments, which require more than 50% of the aggregate principal amount of the then-outstanding applicable series of Notes to consent in favor, and there is no ability to submit a vote to the Tender and Tabulation Agent against the Proposed Amendments.
The submission of a Consent Only Instruction will occur upon receipt by the Tender and Tabulation Agent via the relevant Clearing System of such Consent Only Instruction submitted in accordance with the requirements of such Clearing System. The receipt of such Consent Only Instruction by the relevant Clearing System will be acknowledged in accordance with the standard practices of such Clearing System and will result in the blocking of the relevant Notes in the Noteholder’s account at the relevant Clearing System so that no transfers may be effected in relation to such Notes.
Noteholders must take the appropriate steps through the relevant Clearing System so that no transfers may be effected in relation to such blocked Notes at any time after the date of submission of such Consent Only Instruction, in accordance with the requirements of the relevant Clearing System and the deadlines required by such Clearing System. By blocking such Notes in the relevant Clearing System, each Noteholder which has authorised the submission of such Consent Only Instruction will authorise the relevant Clearing System to disclose the name, account number and holding of the Direct Participant to the Tender and Tabulation Agent, the Offeror, the Dealer Manager and Solicitation Agent and their respective legal advisers.
The deadline for receipt by the Tender and Tabulation Agent of all Consent Only Instructions is the Early Participation Deadline, being 5:00 p.m. (New York Time), September 9, 2022.
Only Direct Participants may submit Consent Only Instructions. Each Holder that is not a Direct Participant must arrange for the Direct Participant through which it holds the relevant Notes to submit a Consent Only Instruction on its behalf to the relevant Clearing System by the deadlines specified by such Clearing System.
