As of August 11, 2021, the 3.100% Senior Notes due 2025 pay an interest rate of 4.350%.

The amounts of each Series of Notes accepted for purchase by the Partnership was determined in accordance with the Acceptance Priority Levels set forth in the table above. The Maximum Principal Amount has been fully subscribed by the 3.950% Senior Notes due 2025, the 3.100% Senior Notes due 2025, the 4.000% Senior Notes due 2022, the Floating-Rate Senior Notes due 2023 and the 4.650% Senior Notes due 2026 as of the Early Tender Time. No 4.500% Senior Notes due 2028 or 4.750% Senior Notes due 2028 will be accepted for purchase. The Partnership will accept for purchase the entire aggregate principal amount validly tendered and not validly withdrawn of the 3.950% Senior Notes due 2025, the 3.100% Senior Notes due 2025, the 4.000% Senior Notes due 2022, and the Floating-Rate Senior Notes due 2023 and an aggregate principal amount of $25,758,000 validly tendered and not validly withdrawn of the 4.650% Senior Notes due 2026, using a proration rate of approximately 68%. Notes not accepted for purchase by the Partnership in any of the Offers will be promptly credited to the account of the registered holder of such Notes with The Depository Trust Company. The Offers are scheduled to expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on September 9, 2021. However, because the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or prior to the Early Tender Time exceeds the Maximum Principal Amount, the Partnership will not accept for purchase any Notes that may be tendered after the Early Tender Time.

The applicable consideration for each $1,000 of principal amount of the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or before the Early Tender Time and accepted for purchase is set forth in the table above (the "Total Consideration"), which includes the Early Tender Premium of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn. In addition, such holders will also be entitled to receive accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn from the last interest payment date for such Notes up to, but not including, the settlement date for the Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase, which is expected to be August 27, 2021.
