The Purchaser intends to accept for purchase on the settlement date that is expected to be within one business day following the 2017 Notes Expiration Date or as promptly as practicable thereafter (the "2017 Notes Settlement Date") all 2017 Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the 2017 Notes Expiration Date. The 2017 Consents of holders of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount outstanding of the 2017 Notes is required to authorize the 2017 Proposed Amendments (the "2017 Requisite Consents"). Assuming that the 2017 Requisite Consents to authorize the 2017 Proposed Amendments are validly delivered and not validly revoked, it is expected that the Issuer, Marfrig, Marfrig Overseas Limited and the Trustee will execute a supplemental indenture with respect to the 2017 Indenture (the "2017 Supplemental Indenture") providing for the 2017 Proposed Amendments after the 2017 Requisite Consents have been obtained; however, the 2017 Supplemental Indenture and the 2017 Proposed Amendments will not be effective and operative until the 2017 Notes Settlement Date and consummation of the Exchange (as defined below).  Holders may not tender their Notes without delivering their Consents to the Proposed Amendments and to the execution and delivery of the Supplemental Indentures pursuant to the Solicitations and may not deliver Consents to the Proposed Amendments and the execution and delivery of the Supplemental Indentures without tendering their Notes pursuant to the Tender Offers.
