________________________________

(1)

 

The Total Consideration for each series of Notes (such consideration, the “Total Consideration”) payable per each $1,000 principal amount of such series of Notes validly tendered for purchase.

 

(2)

 

The amounts exclude the principal amounts of Notes for which Holders have complied with certain procedures applicable to guaranteed delivery pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures (as defined in the Offer to Purchase). Such amounts remain subject to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures. Notes tendered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures are required to be tendered at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 13, 2021.

Overall, $2,589,112,000 principal amount of Notes have been accepted for purchase. The amounts in the foregoing sentence also exclude Notes delivered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures (as defined in the Offer to Purchase). The Maximum Purchase Condition (after giving effect to the increase described above) has been satisfied with respect to the Offers in respect of the series of Notes with Acceptance Priority Levels of 1-16. Accordingly, all Notes of those series that have been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Expiration Time have been accepted for purchase. Because the Maximum Purchase Condition was not satisfied with respect to the series of Notes with Acceptance Priority Levels lower than 16, Chevron has not accepted any Notes of such series (as indicated in the table above) and will promptly return all validly tendered Notes of such series to the respective tendering Holders.

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Tender Offer Documents, Holders whose Notes have been accepted for purchase by us, will receive the applicable Total Consideration specified in the table above for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes, as applicable, which will be payable in cash. In addition to the applicable Total Consideration, Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase will be paid the Accrued Coupon Payment. Interest will cease to accrue on the Initial Settlement Date for all Notes accepted in the Offers, including those tendered through the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures.
