Re:    SEACOR Holdings Inc. Exchange of 3.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2028

Ladies and Gentlemen:

The undersigned investor (the “Investor”), for itself and on behalf of the beneficial owners listed on Exhibit B.1 hereto (the “Accounts”) for whom the Investor holds contractual and investment authority (each, including the Investor if it is a party exchanging Old Notes (as defined below), an “Exchanging Investor”) hereby agrees to exchange, with SEACOR Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), the aggregate amount of the Company’s 3.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2028, CUSIP 81170YAB5 (the “Old Notes”) set forth in Exhibit B.1 hereto that it beneficially owns for the Company’s 3.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2030 (the “New Notes”). The Old Notes were issued pursuant to that certain Indenture (the “Existing Indenture”), dated as of November 13, 2013, between the Company, as issuer, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee (in such capacity, the “Old Notes Trustee”). The New Notes will be issued pursuant to an Indenture (the “Indenture”), to be dated as of the Closing Date (as defined below), between the Company, as issuer, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (in such capacity, the “New Notes Trustee”), substantially in the form set forth as Exhibit A hereto. If only one Exchanging Investor is identified in Exhibit B.1 hereto, then each reference in this Exchange Agreement to “Exchanging Investors” will be deemed to be a reference to such Exchanging Investor identified in Exhibit B.1 hereto, mutatis mutandis.

No cash will be paid to any Exchanging Investor in respect of any accrued and unpaid interest on the Old Notes. The Investor understands that the exchange (the “Exchange”) of the Old Notes for the New Notes is being made without registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any securities laws of any state of the United States or of any other jurisdiction, and the New Notes are only being offered to “qualified institutional buyers” (as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act) in reliance on a private placement exemption from registration under the Securities Act.

1.    Exchange Consideration. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Exchange Agreement, the Investor hereby agrees to exchange, and to cause each other Exchanging Investor, if any, to exchange, an aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes set forth on the signature page hereto for New Notes having an aggregate principal amount equal to 100% of such aggregate principal amount of such Old Notes (the “Consideration”).

The Exchange shall occur in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 3 hereof.

2.    The Closing. The closing of the Exchange (the “Closing”) shall take place at the offices of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, 28 Liberty Street, New York, New York 10005, at 10:00

- 1 -





Exhibit 10.1

a.m., New York City time, on the later of (A) May 15, 2018; (B) such date as the conditions to Closing set forth in Section 6 are satisfied or waived; and (C) such other time and place as the Company and the Investor may agree (such later date, the “Closing Date”).

3.    Exchange. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Exchange Agreement, the Investor hereby, for itself and on behalf of each Exchanging Investor, sells, assigns and transfers to, or upon the order of, the Company, all right, title and interest in such portion of the Old Notes as indicated on Exhibit B.1 hereto, waives any and all other rights with respect to such Old Notes, and under the Existing Indenture with respect thereto, and releases and discharges the Company from any and all claims the Investor and the Accounts may now have, or may have in the future, arising out of, or related to, such Old Notes, including, without limitation, any claims arising from any existing or past defaults under the Existing Indenture, or any claims that the Investor or any Exchanging Investor is entitled to receive additional interest with respect to the Old Notes.

The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) will act as securities depositary for the New Notes. At or prior to 9:30 a.m., New York City time, on the Closing Date, the Investor agrees to direct the eligible DTC participant through which each Exchanging Investor holds a beneficial interest in the Old Notes to submit a withdrawal instruction through DTC’s Deposits and Withdrawal at Custodian (“DWAC”) program to the Old Notes Trustee), for the aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes to be exchanged pursuant to this Exchange Agreement (the “DWAC Withdrawal”).

At or prior to 9:30 a.m. New York City time on the Closing Date, the Investor agrees to direct the eligible DTC participant through which each Exchanging Investor previously held a beneficial interest in the Old Notes (or any other DTC participant of its choosing) to submit a deposit instruction through DTC’s DWAC program to the New Notes Trustee, for the aggregate principal amount of New Notes (the “New Notes DWAC Deposit”), it is entitled to receive pursuant to this Exchange Agreement, or comply with such other settlement procedures mutually agreed in writing by the Investor and the Company. The New Notes will not be delivered until a valid DWAC Withdrawal of the Old Notes has been received and accepted by the Old Notes Trustee. If the Closing does not occur, any Old Notes submitted for DWAC Withdrawal will be returned to the DTC participant that submitted the withdrawal instruction in accordance with the procedures of DTC. The Investor acknowledges that each DWAC Withdrawal and New Notes DWAC Deposit must be posted on the Closing Date and that if it is posted before the Closing Date, then it will expire unaccepted and must be resubmitted on the Closing Date.

For the convenience of each Exchanging Investor, attached hereto as Exhibit B.2 is a summary of the delivery instructions that must be followed to settle the Exchange through DTC.

The Investor acknowledges and understands that other investors are participating in similar exchanges, each of which contemplates a DWAC Withdrawal and a New Notes DWAC Deposit. The Company intends to complete the New Notes DWAC Deposit concurrently for all investors who have submitted valid DWAC Withdrawals and New Notes DWAC Deposits by the deadline above. In the event that the Investor complies with the deadline above for the DWAC Withdrawal and other investors do not, the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the New Notes are delivered to the Investor pursuant to the New Notes DWAC Deposit on the Closing Date. However, in the event that such New Notes are not delivered on the Closing Date,

- 2 -





Exhibit 10.1

the Company will use its best efforts to ensure that they will be delivered on the business day immediately following the Closing Date or as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter.

On the Closing Date, subject to satisfaction of the conditions precedent specified in this Exchange Agreement, including the provisions of the preceding paragraph, and the prior receipt of a valid (A) DWAC Withdrawal conforming with the aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes to be exchanged and (B) New Notes DWAC Deposit, the Company hereby agrees to execute the New Notes, and direct the New Notes Trustee to authenticate and, by acceptance of the New Notes DWAC Deposit, deliver, the New Notes (or comply with such other settlement procedures mutually agreed in writing by the Company and the New Notes Trustee), in each case to the DTC account specified on Exhibit B.1 to this Exchange Agreement. If (x) the Old Notes Trustee is unable to locate the DWAC Withdrawal or the New Notes Trustee is unable to locate the New Notes DWAC Deposit or (y) the DWAC Withdrawal or the New Notes DWAC Deposit does not conform to the Old Notes or the New Notes, respectively, to be exchanged or issued, as applicable, pursuant to this Exchange Agreement, the Company will promptly notify the Investor. If, because of the occurrence of an event described in either clause (x) or (y), the New Notes are not delivered on the Closing Date, they will be delivered on the business day following the Closing Date (or as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter) on which the Old Notes Trustee is able to locate the DWAC Withdrawal or the New Notes Trustee is able to locate the New Notes DWAC Deposit, as applicable (in the case of clause (x)), or the DWAC Withdrawal or New Notes DWAC Deposit conforms to the Old Notes or the New Notes, respectively (in the case of clause (y)).

All questions as to the validity and acceptance of the Old Notes will be determined by the Company, in its sole discretion, which determination shall be final and binding.

All authority herein conferred or agreed to be conferred in this Exchange Agreement shall survive the dissolution of the Investor, and any representation, warranty, undertaking and obligation of the Investor hereunder shall be binding upon the trustees in bankruptcy, legal representatives, successors and assigns of the Investor.

4.    Representations and Warranties of the Company. The Company represents and warrants to the Exchanging Investors that:

(c)    The Indenture has been duly authorized by the Company and, when duly authorized, executed and delivered in accordance with its terms by the New Notes Trustee, will constitute a valid and binding obligation of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally or by equitable principles relating to enforceability, including principles of commercial reasonableness, good faith and fair dealing, regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding at law or in equity.

(d)    The Exchange, the issuance of the New Notes and the other transactions contemplated thereby will not (A) materially contravene any law, rule or regulation binding on the Company or any subsidiary thereof or any judgment or order of any court or arbitrator or governmental or regulatory authority applicable to the Company or any such subsidiary, (B) constitute a material breach or violation or result in a default under any material loan agreement, mortgage, lease or other agreement or instrument to which the Company or any of its subsidiaries is a party or by which it is bound or (C) constitute a breach or violation or result in a default under the certificate of incorporation or bylaws of the Company.

(h)    At or before the Closing, the Company will have submitted to the New York Stock Exchange a Supplemental Listing Application with respect to the Conversion Shares and will have received an executed counterparty thereto from the New York Stock Exchange.

(h)    The Investor and each Exchanging Investor understands and accepts that the New Notes to be acquired in the Exchange involve risks. Each of the Investor and the Exchanging Investors has such knowledge, skill and experience in business, financial and investment matters that such person is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the Exchange and an investment in the New Notes. With the assistance of each Exchanging Investor’s own professional advisors, to the extent that the Exchanging Investor has deemed appropriate, each Exchanging Investor has made its own legal, tax, accounting and financial evaluation of the merits and risks of an investment in the New Notes and the consequences of the Exchange and this Exchange Agreement. Each Exchanging Investor has considered the suitability of the New Notes as an investment in light of its own circumstances and financial condition, and each of the Investor and the Exchanging Investor is able to bear the risks associated with an investment in the New Notes.

(i)    The Investor confirms that it and each Exchanging Investor is not relying on any statement (written or oral), representation or warranty made by the Company, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc. (“SunTrust”) or any of their respective affiliates as investment, tax or other advice or as a recommendation to participate in the Exchange and receive the Consideration in exchange for Old Notes. The Investor confirms that it and each Exchanging Investor has read the Indenture relating to the New Notes and has not relied on any statement (written or oral) of the Company, SunTrust or any of their respective affiliates as to the terms of the New Notes.

(j)    The Investor confirms that none of the Company, SunTrust or any of their respective affiliates have (A) given any guarantee or representation as to the potential success, return, effect or benefit (either legal, regulatory, tax, financial, accounting or otherwise) of an investment in the New Notes or (B) made any representation to the Investor or any Exchanging Investor regarding the legality of an investment in the New Notes under applicable investment guidelines, laws or regulations. In deciding to participate in the Exchange, each of the Investor and the Exchanging Investors is not relying on the advice or recommendations of the Company or SunTrust, or their respective affiliates, and has made its own independent decision that the terms of the Exchange and the investment in the New Notes is suitable and appropriate for it.

Exhibit 10.1

(l)    Each of the Investor and the Exchanging Investors understands that no federal or state agency has passed upon the merits or risks of an investment in the New Notes or made any recommendation or endorsement of an investment in or made any finding or determination concerning the fairness or advisability of this investment or the consequences of the Exchange and this Exchange Agreement.
 
(m)    Each Exchanging Investor and each account for which it is acting is a “qualified institutional buyer” as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act and represents, agrees and acknowledges that it was not formed for the specific purpose of investing in the New Notes or any subsequent conversion or exchange thereof. Each of the Investor and the Exchanging Investors agrees to furnish any additional information requested by the Company or any of its affiliates to assure compliance with applicable U.S. federal and state securities laws in connection with the Exchange.

(n)    Each Exchanging Investor is acquiring the New Notes solely for such Exchanging Investor’s own beneficial account, for investment purposes, and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution of the New Notes in violation of the Securities Act. Each of the Investor and the Exchanging Investors understands that the offer and sale of the New Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws by reason of specific exemptions under the provisions thereof that depend in part upon the investment intent of the Investor and the Exchanging Investors and the accuracy of the other representations made by the Investor, for itself and on behalf of each Exchanging Investor, in this Exchange Agreement. Each of the Investor and the Exchanging Investors understands that the Company and its affiliates are relying upon the representations and agreements contained in this Exchange Agreement (and any supplemental information) for the purpose of determining whether the Exchange meets the requirements for such exemptions.

(o)    The Investor acknowledges that the terms of the Exchange have been mutually negotiated between the Investor and the Company.

(p)    The Investor acknowledges that it and each Exchanging Investor understands that the Company intends to pay SunTrust a fee in respect of the Exchange.

(r)    The Investor understands that, unless the Investor notifies the Company in writing to the contrary at or before the Closing, each of the Investor’s representations and warranties, on behalf of itself and each Exchanging Investor, contained in this Exchange Agreement will be deemed to have been reaffirmed and confirmed as of the Closing, taking into account all information received by the Investor and each Exchanging Investor.

If you have any questions, please contact Terence O’Malley of SunTrust Robinson
Humphrey, Inc. at (212) 590-0919.

Thank you.










Delivery of Old Notes

You must direct the eligible DTC participant through which you hold a beneficial interest in the Old Notes to post on May 15, 2018, no later than 9:30 a.m., New York City time, withdrawal instructions through DTC via DWAC for the aggregate principal amount of Old Notes (CUSIP
#81170YAB5) set forth in Exhibit B.1 of the Exchange Agreement to be exchanged. It is important that this instruction be submitted and the DWAC posted on May 15, 2018; if it is posted before May 15, 2018, then it will expire unaccepted and will need to be re-posted on May 15, 2018.

To receive New Notes

You must direct your eligible DTC participant through which you wish to hold a beneficial interest in the New Notes to post on May 15, 2018, no later than 9:30 a.m., New York City time, a deposit instruction through DTC via DWAC for the aggregate principal amount of New Notes to which you are entitled pursuant to the Exchange. It is important that this instruction be submitted and the DWAC posted on May 15, 2018; if it is posted before May 15, 2018, then it will expire unaccepted and will need to be re-posted on May 15, 2018.

Closing

On May 15, 2018, after the Company receives your Old Notes and your delivery instructions as set forth above, and subject to the satisfaction of the conditions to Closing as set forth in your Exchange Agreement, the Company will deliver your New Notes in accordance with the delivery instructions above.










Exhibit C

Under U.S. federal income tax law, a holder who exchanges Old Notes for the Consideration generally must provide such holder’s correct taxpayer identification number (“TIN”) on IRS Form W-9 (attached hereto) or otherwise establish a basis for exemption from backup withholding. A TIN is generally an individual holder’s social security number or a holder’s employer identification number. If the correct TIN is not provided, the holder may be subject to a $50 penalty imposed by the IRS. In addition, certain payments made to holders may be subject to U.S. backup withholding tax (currently set at 24% of the payment). If a holder is required to provide a TIN but does not have the TIN, the holder should consult its tax advisor regarding how to obtain a TIN. Certain holders are not subject to these backup withholding and reporting requirements. Non-U.S. Holders generally may establish their status as exempt recipients from backup withholding by submitting a properly completed applicable IRS Form W-8 (available from the Company or the IRS at www.irs.gov), signed, under penalties of perjury, attesting to such holder’s exempt foreign status. U.S. backup withholding is not an additional tax. Rather, the U.S. federal income tax liability of persons subject to backup withholding will be reduced by the amount of tax withheld. If withholding results in an overpayment of taxes, a refund may be obtained provided that the required information is timely furnished to the IRS. Holders are urged to consult their tax advisors regarding how to complete the appropriate forms and to determine whether they are exempt from backup withholding or other withholding taxes.










Exhibit D


Comparison of Terms
(See Attached)




















































Convertible Exchange - Comparison of Principal Term of the Notes
The summary below describes and compares the principal terms of the 3.00% Convertible Notes due 2028 (the “existing notes”) and the 3.25% convertible senior notes due 2030 (the “new notes”). Certain of the terms of the existing notes and the new notes described below are subject to important limitations and exceptions that are set forth in the indenture for the applicable notes. Unless the context indicates otherwise, the terms “SEACOR,” “we,” “our,” “us” and “Company” refer to SEACOR Holdings Inc. and not to its subsidiaries. “Common Stock” refers to the common stock, par value $.01 per share, of SEACOR.
The below does not contain all of the information that may be important to you in deciding whether to exchange your existing notes. You must conduct your own investigation of SEACOR and the exchange, and consult with your legal, tax and other advisors in deciding to exchange your existing notes.
Item
Existing 3.00% Convertible
Notes due 2028
New 3.25% Convertible Senior
Notes due 2030
Issuer
SEACOR Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation.
SEACOR Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation.
Securities Offered
3.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2028.
3.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2030.
Maturity Date
November 15, 2028 unless earlier repurchased, redeemed or converted.
May 15, 2030 unless earlier repurchased, redeemed or converted.
Issue Price
Cash at 100% of their principal amount.
To be issued in exchange for the existing notes at an exchange ratio of 1:1 in principal amount.









Interest
3.00% per year. Interest will accrue from the date of issuance of the existing notes or from the most recent date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, and will be payable semiannually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year, beginning on May 15, 2014.
In addition, beginning with the semiannual interest period commencing on November 15, 2020, contingent interest will accrue on the existing notes during any semiannual interest period in which the arithmetic average of the trading prices of the existing notes for each trading day during the 10 consecutive trading days beginning on, and including, the 12th scheduled trading day immediately preceding the first day of such semiannual period is greater than or equal to the upside trigger (which will initially be set at $1,200 per $1,000 principal amount of existing notes), in which case such contingent interest will be payable at a rate per annum equal to 0.45% of such arithmetic average of the trading prices. We will also pay contingent interest at any time the existing notes are outstanding in the event that we pay an extraordinary cash dividend or distribution to all or substantially all holders of our common stock that our board of directors designates as payable with respect to the existing notes.
We may pay additional interest on the existing notes at our election as the sole remedy for a specified period of time for our failure to satisfy certain reporting covenants set forth in the indenture. In addition, we will be required to pay additional interest under certain circumstances if the existing notes fail to become freely tradable within certain time periods.
3.25% per year. Interest will accrue from November 15, 2017 or from the most recent date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, and will be payable semiannually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year, beginning on November 15, 2018.
Holders exchanging their existing notes for new notes will receive, on May 15, 2018, accrued and unpaid interest through that date on their exchanged existing notes, notwithstanding the exchange. If settlement of the new notes occurs after May 15, 2018, then, in lieu of a cash payment upon settlement of the exchange for accrued and unpaid interest on the existing notes being exchanged, interest will accrue on the new notes from, and including, May 15, 2018 to, but excluding, the settlement date of the exchange at the coupon rate borne on the existing notes (3.00% per annum).Accordingly, no separate cash payment for accrued interest on the existing notes being exchanged will be made at the settlement of the exchange.
Beginning with the semiannual interest period commencing on May 15, 2025, contingent interest will accrue on the existing notes during any semiannual interest period in which the arithmetic average of the trading prices of the existing notes for each trading day during the 10 consecutive trading days beginning on, and including, the 12th scheduled trading day immediately preceding the first day of such semiannual period is greater than or equal to the upside trigger (which will initially be set at $1,200 per $1,000 principal amount of existing notes), in which case such contingent interest will be payable at a rate per annum equal to 0.45% of such arithmetic average of the trading prices. We will also pay contingent interest at any time the existing notes are outstanding in the event that we pay an extraordinary cash dividend or distribution to all or substantially all holders of our common stock that our board of directors designates as payable with respect to the existing notes.
We may pay additional interest on the new notes at our election as the sole remedy for a specified period of time for our failure to satisfy certain reporting covenants set forth in the indenture.
The new notes will be issued with an unrestricted CUSIP number and, accordingly, will not provide for the payment of additional interest for the failure of the new notes to become freely tradable.









Optional Redemption
We may not redeem the existing notes prior to November 19, 2018, and no sinking fund is provided for the existing notes. On or after November 19, 2018, we may from time to time redeem any or all of the existing notes for cash, except for any existing notes that we are required to repurchase pursuant to a fundamental change repurchase offer or at the election of holders upon specified dates. The redemption price for the existing notes will equal 100% of the principal amount of the existing notes being redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date.
We may not redeem the new notes prior to May 15, 2022, and no sinking fund is provided for the new notes. On or after May 15, 2022, we may from time to time redeem all or part of the new notes for cash, except for the new notes that we are required to repurchase pursuant to a fundamental change repurchase offer or at the election of holders on the purchase date described below. However, unless the redemption date occurs on or after May 15, 2025, we may call the notes for redemption only if the last reported sale price per share of our common stock exceeds 130% of the conversion price of the new notes for each of at least 20 trading days during the 30 consecutive trading days ending on, and including, the trading day immediately before the date we send the related redemption notice. The redemption price for the new notes to be redeemed will equal 100% of the principal amount of the new notes being redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date. In addition, calling any new notes for redemption on a redemption date occurring before May 15, 2025 will constitute a make- whole fundamental change, which will require us to increase the conversion rate in certain circumstances for a specified period of time.
Conversion Rights
Holders may convert their existing notes at their option prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding August 15, 2028, but only under the following circumstances:
Holders may convert their new notes at their option prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding February 15, 2030, but only under the following circumstances:

• during the five consecutive business day period after any five consecutive trading day period (such five consecutive trading day period, the “measurement period”) in which the trading price per $1,000 principal amount of existing notes for each trading day of such measurement period was less than 98% of the product of the last reported sale price of our common stock and the applicable conversion rate on such trading day;
• during any fiscal quarter commencing after September 30, 2018 (and only during such fiscal quarter), if the last reported sale price of our common stock for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during the period of 30 consecutive trading days ending on the last trading day of the immediately preceding fiscal quarter is greater than or equal to 130% of the applicable conversion price on each applicable trading day;
• during the five consecutive business day period after any five consecutive trading day period (such five consecutive trading day period, the “measurement period”) in which the trading price per $1,000 principal amount of new notes for each trading day of such measurement period was less than 98% of the product of the last reported sale price of our common stock and the applicable conversion rate on such trading day;
 
• upon the occurrence of specified corporate events or distributions; or
• upon the occurrence of specified corporate events or distributions; or
 
• If we call any existing notes for redemption, at any time until the close of business on the second business day immediately preceding the redemption date.
• If we call any new notes for redemption, at any time until the close of business on the second business day immediately preceding the redemption date.
 
On or after August 15, 2028, until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, holders may convert their existing notes at any time, regardless of the foregoing circumstances.
On or after February 15, 2030, until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, holders may convert their new notes at any time, regardless of the foregoing circumstances.
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in order to facilitate our compliance with the provisions of the Jones Act (as defined below) related to ownership of our common stock by non-U.S. citizens (within the meaning of the Jones Act), receipt of shares of our common stock upon conversion by non-U.S. citizens (within the meaning of the Jones Act) is subject to certain limits set forth in the indenture.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in order to facilitate our compliance with the provisions of the Jones Act (as defined below) related to ownership of our common stock by non-U.S. citizens (within the meaning of the Jones Act), receipt of shares of our common stock upon conversion by non-U.S. citizens (within the meaning of the Jones Act) is subject to certain limits set forth in the indenture.









 
The initial conversion rate is 7.9362 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of existing notes (equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $126.00 per share of common stock), subject to customary adjustments. In addition, following the occurrence of certain corporate events, we will, in certain circumstances, increase the conversion rate for a holder that converts its existing notes in connection with such corporate event.
The conversion rate will initially equal 13.1920 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of new notes (equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $75.80 per share of common stock), subject to customary adjustments. In addition, following the occurrence of certain corporate events on or before May 15, 2025 that constitute a “make- whole fundamental change,” we will, in certain circumstances, increase the conversion rate for a holder that converts its new notes in connection with such corporate event.









Settlement Upon Conversion
We may elect to pay or deliver, as the case may be, to holders in full satisfaction of our conversion obligation:
• solely shares of our common stock, together with cash in lieu of fractional shares, which we refer to as a “physical settlement”;
• solely cash without any delivery of shares of our common stock, which we refer to as a “cash settlement”; or
• a combination of cash and shares of our common stock, which we refer to as a “combination settlement”.
The amount of cash, if we elect cash settlement, or the amount of cash and the number of shares of our common stock, if any, if we elect a combination settlement, will be based on the daily conversion values over a 50 consecutive trading day “observation period.” All conversions occurring on or after August 15, 2028 will be settled using the same settlement method. Prior to August 15, 2028, we will use the same settlement method for all conversions occurring on the same conversion date, but we will not have any obligation to use the same settlement method with respect to conversions that occur on different trading days. That is, we may choose on one trading day to settle conversions in physical settlement, and choose on another trading day cash settlement or combination settlement. If we elect a settlement method, we will inform holders so converting through the trustee of such settlement method we have selected no later than the close of business on the trading day immediately following the related conversion date (or, in the case of any conversions occurring on or after August 15, 2028, no later than August 15, 2028).
We may elect to pay or deliver, as the case may be, to holders in full satisfaction of our conversion obligation:

• solely cash without any delivery of shares of our common stock, which we refer to as a “cash settlement”; or
• a combination of cash and shares of our common stock, which we refer to as a “combination settlement”.
The amount of cash, if we elect cash settlement, or the amount of cash and the number of shares of our common stock, if any, if we elect a combination settlement, will be based on the daily conversion values over a 50 consecutive trading day “observation period.” All conversions occurring on or after February 15, 2030 will be settled using the same settlement method. Prior to February 15,2030, we will use the same settlement method for all conversions occurring on the same conversion date, but we will not have any obligation to use the same settlement method with respect to conversions that occur on different trading days. That is, we may choose on one trading day to settle conversions in physical settlement, and choose on another trading day cash settlement or combination settlement. If we elect a settlement method, we will inform holders so converting through the trustee of such settlement method we have selected no later than the close of business on the trading day immediately following the related conversion date (or, in the case of any conversions occurring on or after February 15, 2030, no later than February 15, 2030).









Fundamental Change
If we undergo a “fundamental change,” subject to certain conditions, you may require us to purchase for cash all or part of your existing notes. The fundamental change purchase price will equal 100% of the principal amount of the existing notes to be purchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the fundamental change purchase date.
If we undergo a “fundamental change,” subject to certain conditions, you may require us to purchase for cash all or part of your new notes. The fundamental change purchase price will equal 100% of the principal amount of the new notes to be purchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the fundamental change purchase date.

Holders may require us to purchase some or all of the new notes for cash on May 15, 2025 at a purchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the new notes to be purchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the purchase date.
