eBay Announces Offer and Consent Solicitation for Any and All of its 2.875% Notes due 2021

Press Release

The Company has commenced a cash tender offer.

eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY) (the “Company”) announced today that it has commenced a cash tender offer (the “Offer”) for any and all of its outstanding $750 million aggregate principal amount 2.875% Notes due 2021 (the “Notes”). The Company concurrently announced that it is soliciting consents (together with the Offer, the “Offer and Consent Solicitation”) from holders of the Notes to amend (the “Proposed Amendment”) the indenture governing the Notes (the “Indenture”) to shorten the minimum notice period required for optional redemption of the Notes by the Company from 30 calendar days to two calendar days (the “Consents”). The Offer and the Consent Solicitation are being made in conjunction with, and are conditioned upon the consummation of a proposed debt financing on or prior to the Early Settlement Date (as defined below) on terms reasonably satisfactory to the Company that will generate net proceeds in an amount that, together with other available funds, is sufficient to finance the repurchase of the Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase.?

In the event that the Proposed Amendment becomes operative, to the extent any Notes are not purchased through the Offer, eBay may, but is not required to, effect the redemption of such Notes and satisfy and discharge the Indenture with respect to such Notes as soon as practicable after the Proposed Amendment becomes operative in accordance with the terms of the Indenture, as modified by the Proposed Amendment (i.e., upon notice of redemption of not less than two calendar days).

To the extent that requisite Consents are not received to approve the Proposed Amendment, eBay may, but is not required to, elect to redeem any Notes that are not purchased through the Offer in accordance with the terms of the Indenture (i.e., upon notice of redemption of not less than 30 calendar days).

Notes that are not tendered and accepted for payment pursuant to the Offer will remain obligations of eBay. There is no requirement in the Indenture or otherwise that eBay redeem any Notes, and unless redeemed, such Notes will continue to remain outstanding.

This press release does not constitute a notice of redemption under the optional redemption provisions of the Indenture.

Information related to the Notes and the Offer and Consent Solicitation is set forth in the table below.

(1) Per $1,000 principal amount.

(2) The Total Consideration for Notes validly tendered prior to the Consent Fee Deadline (as defined below) and accepted for purchase is calculated using the Fixed Spread (as defined below) and is inclusive of the Consent Fee.

The Offer and Consent Solicitation will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 6, 2020, unless extended by the Company (such time and date, as the same may be extended or earlier terminated, the “Expiration Time”) or earlier terminated. In order to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration (as described below) for tendered Notes, holders must validly tender their Notes and deliver Consents before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 19, 2020 (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Consent Fee Deadline”), and not validly withdraw their tendered Notes or revoke the related Consents before such time.

The Offer and Consent Solicitation is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions as described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated June 8, 2020 relating to the Offer and the Consent Solicitation (the “Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement”). If any of the conditions are not satisfied, the Company may terminate the Offer and Consent Solicitation and return tendered Notes, may waive unsatisfied conditions and accept for payment and purchase all validly tendered Notes, may extend the Offer and Consent Solicitation or may otherwise amend the Offer and Consent Solicitation.

The consideration (the “Total Consideration”) offered per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer will be determined in the manner described in Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement by reference to the fixed spread (the “Fixed Spread”) specified above plus the yield based on the bid-side price of the U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified above as quoted on the applicable page on the Bloomberg Bond Trader PX4 series of pages at 11:00 a.m., New York City time on June 19, 2020.

Holders of any Notes that are validly tendered prior to the Consent Fee Deadline and that are accepted for purchase will receive the Total Consideration. The Total Consideration, as calculated using the Fixed Spread set forth in the table above, is inclusive of the Consent Fee (as defined below). Holders of any Notes that are validly tendered after the Consent Fee Deadline but prior to the Expiration Time and that are accepted for purchase will receive the Total Consideration minus an amount in cash (the “Consent Fee”) equal to the applicable amount set forth in the table above under the heading “Consent Fee.” As used herein, the Total Consideration minus the Consent Fee is referred to as the “Tender Offer Consideration.”

In addition to the Total Consideration or the Tender Offer Consideration, as applicable, all Holders of Notes accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date or promptly following the Expiration Time (the “Final Settlement Date”), as applicable, payable on the Early Settlement Date or the Final Settlement Date, as applicable.

The complete terms and conditions of the Offer and Consent Solicitation are set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement that is being sent to holders of the Notes. Holders are urged to read the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement carefully when it becomes available.
