J. C. Penney Company, Inc. and J. C. Penney Corporation, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the company (together with the company, 'J. C. Penney'), announced that, pursuant to J. C. Penney's previously announced cash tender offers with respect to the securities, approximately $448 million in aggregate principal amount of Securities was validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or before the 'early tender date," which was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 22, 2014, according to information provided by D.F. King & Co., Inc., the tender agent for the tender olffers. Because the withdrawal deadline relating to the Tender Offers expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 22, 2014, these Securities, as well as any subsequently tendered Securities, may not be withdrawn. J. C. Penney also announced that it has increased the aggregate principal amount of the securities that it is offering to purchase in the tender offers from $300 million to $325 million (as increased, the maximum tender amount) and added tender caps for the 6.875% Medium-Term Notes due 2015 and the 7.65% debentures due 2016. The terms and conditions of the tender offers are described in detail in the offer to purchase, dated as of September 9, 2014, and the accompanying letter of transmittal. In addition, J. C. Penney has determined that the financing condition described in the Offer Documents has been satisfied. All terms and conditions of the tender offers as described in the Offer Documents remain unchanged, except as described in this press release. The tender offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 6, 2014, unless J. C. Penney extends the tender offer with respect to any series of securities (such date and time, as a tender offers with respect to a series of securities may be extended, the applicable 'expiration date' for such tender offers), unless earlier terminated. The aggregate principal amount of securities validly tendered at or prior to the applicable expiration date will be purchased, on the terms and subject to the satisfaction or, as applicable, waiver of the conditions to the tender offers, in accordance with their respective acceptance priority levels (acceptance priority levels) in numerical priority order, with the highest priority being designated and the lowest priority being designated  provided that in no event will J. C. Penney be obligated to purchase an aggregate principal amount of Securities exceeding the maximum tender amount or with respect to a series of securities, a principal amount exceeding  the amount. If there are sufficient remaining funds to purchase some, but not all, of the Securities of a particular series based on the applicable Acceptance Priority Level, the principal amount of such securities purchased will be prorated based on the aggregate principal amount of securities of that series, subject, as to a series of securities, its respective tender cap, and, as to all securities,  the maximum tender amount, that have been validly tendered at or prior to the applicable expiration date. Subject to the acceptance priority levels and the maximum tender amount, if the validly tendered securities of a particular series exceeds the tender cap for such series, the principal amount of such securities purchased will be prorated based on the aggregate principal amount of securities of that series validly tendered in the tender offers. Holders of securities who validly tendered (and did not validly withdraw) their securities on or before the early tender date are eligible to receive the applicable total consideration, which includes an early tender premium of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of securities tendered by such holders that are accepted for purchase. Holders of securities who validly tender their securities after the early tender date and on or before the applicable expiration date are eligible to receive the applicable base consideration per $1,000 principal amount of securities tendered by such holders that are accepted for purchase, which is equal to the applicable total consideration minus the early tender premium of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of securities. The total consideration per $1,000 principal amount of securities for the 6.875% medium-term notes due 2015 is $1,067.50,  for the 7.65% debentures due 2016 is $1,105 and for the 7.95% Debentures due 2017 is $1,097.50. Holders whose Securities are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on such purchased securities from the last interest payment date for such series of securities up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date for such series of securities. Payment for securities accepted for purchase pursuant to the tender offers will be made promptly after the applicable expiration date.
