Fremont CA – July 1, 2020 - Seagate HDD Cayman (the “Company”), a subsidiary of Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX), today announced the expiration and final tender results for its previously announced cash tender offers (each, a “Tender Offer” and, collectively, the “Tender Offers”) for (i) up to an aggregate principal amount of $275,000,000 (the “2022 Note Cap”) of its 4.250% Senior Notes due 2022 (the “2022 Notes”) and (ii) up to an aggregate principal amount of $225,000,000 (the “2023 Note Cap” and, together with the 2022 Note Cap, the “Tender Caps”) of its 4.750% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “2023 Notes” and together with the 2022 Notes, the “Notes”, and each a “series” of Notes) up to a maximum aggregate principal amount of $500,000,000, from each registered holder of the Notes (individually, a “Holder” and collectively, the “Holders”). The Company announced the early tender results for the Tender Offers on June 16, 2020 (the “Early Tender Deadline”), for Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the Early Tender Deadline. The Tender Offers expired at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 30, 2020 (the “Expiration Date”).
The terms and conditions of the Tender Offers are described in the Offer to Purchase dated June 3, 2020 (the “Offer to Purchase”) and the related Letter of Transmittal (the “Letter of Transmittal”).
As of the Expiration Date, the aggregate principal amount of each series of Notes set forth in the table below has been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Tender Offers:
|Title of |
|CUSIP Number||Principal Amount |

the Early Tender
|Aggregate Principal Amount|
Tendered after the
Early Tender Deadline
and as of the
|Total Aggregate Principal|
Purchased and Expected

Notes due 2022
Notes due 2023
Because the outstanding aggregate principal amount of each of the 2022 Notes and the 2023 Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn after the Early Tender Deadline and prior to the Expiration Date do not exceed the applicable Tender Cap, neither series of Notes will be subject to proration.
Holders of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Expiration Date will receive the applicable Tender Offer Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) on the final settlement date, which is expected to be July 2, 2020 (the “Final Settlement Date”). In addition to the applicable Tender Offer Consideration for such Notes, such Holders of Notes accepted for purchase will also receive, in cash, all accrued and unpaid interest, rounded to the nearest cent, per $1,000 principal amount of such Notes, from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the Final Settlement Date.
