REDE D’OR FINANCE
(Incorporated in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg)
Offer to Purchase for Cash Up to U.S.$135,000,000 Aggregate Principal Amount
of its Outstanding 4.500% Notes due 2030
unconditionally guaranteed by Rede D’Or São Luiz S.A.
Rede D’Or Finance, a private limited liability company (société à responsabilité limitée) incorporated and existing under the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg with registered office at 17, Boulevard F.W. Raiffeisen, L-2411 Luxembourg, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and registered with the Luxembourg Register of Commerce and Companies (Registre de commerce et des sociétés, Luxembourg) under number B221035 (“Rede D’Or“), hereby announces the early tender results of its offer to purchase for cash up to U.S.$135,000,000 aggregate principal amount (subject to increase by Rede D’Or in its sole discretion under the circumstances described in the Offer to Purchase (as defined below), the “Maximum Tender Amount“) of its outstanding 4.500% Notes due 2030 (CUSIP: 75735GAA6 and L7915TAA0, and ISIN: US75735GAA67 and USL7915TAA09) (the “Notes“), upon the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase dated October 6, 2021 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Offer to Purchase“). Capitalized terms used in this announcement, but not defined herein, shall have the meanings given to such terms in the Offer to Purchase.
Rede D’Or hereby announces that, as of October 20, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. New York City time (which was the Early Tender Deadline), it had received valid tenders from the registered holders of the Notes (individually, a “Holder” and collectively, the “Holders“) of U.S.$359,879,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes (which exceeds the Maximum Tender Amount). Withdrawal rights for the Tender Offer have expired. The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on November 3, 2021, or any other date and time to which Rede D’Or extends the Tender Offer (such date and time, as it may be extended, the “Expiration Deadline“).
In accordance with the Offer to Purchase, Rede D’Or has elected to have an Early Settlement Date. The Early Settlement Date for Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase by Rede D’Or shall be on October 22, 2021. In addition, all Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will be so accepted on a prorated basis subject to the Maximum Tender Amount.
In accordance with the Offer to Purchase, Holders of Notes that are validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will receive the Tender Offer Consideration plus the Early Tender Premium. In addition, all Holders of Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will, on the Early Settlement Date, also receive accrued and unpaid interest on those Notes from the last interest payment date with respect to those Notes to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date. As the aggregate principal amount of Notes tendered for purchase prior to the Early Tender Deadline exceeds the Maximum Tender Amount, no Notes tendered for purchase after the Early Tender Deadline will be accepted for purchase, provided that such Notes may be accepted for purchase if Rede D’Or increases the Maximum Tender Amount, which Rede D’Or Finance is entitled to do in its sole discretion. There can be no assurance that Rede D’Or will increase the Maximum Tender Amount. Any Notes tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer that are not accepted and purchased by Rede D’Or as a result of the operation of the proration provisions applicable to the Tender Offer shall be promptly returned to the relevant tendering Holders following the Expiration Deadline.

If Rede D’Or becomes aware of any jurisdiction in which the making of the Tender Offer would not be in compliance with such laws, Rede D’Or will make a good faith effort to comply with any such laws or may seek to have such laws declared inapplicable to the Tender Offer. If, after such good faith effort, Rede D’Or cannot comply with any such applicable laws, the Tender Offer will not be made to the Holders of Notes residing in each such jurisdiction. Neither the delivery of this announcement, the Offer to Purchase and any related documents nor any purchase of Notes by Rede D’Or will, under any circumstances, create any implication that the information contained in this announcement, the Offer to Purchase or in any related document is current as of any time subsequent to the date hereof or thereof.
The Offer to Purchase does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities (other than the Notes). Any offering of securities will only be made by an offering document and any such offering may not be registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
