Title of Security
144A (12653C AC2)
(1) Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes that are accepted for purchase.
Each holder who validly tenders its Notes on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 23, 2022 (the "Early Tender Deadline") will be entitled to an Early Tender Payment, which is included in the Total Consideration above, of $30 for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered by such holder, if such Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the offer, Holders validly tendering, and not validly withdrawing, Notes after the Early Tender Deadline and on or before the Expiration Time will be eligible to receive only the Tender Offer Consideration, which is an amount equal to the Total Consideration less the Early Tender Payment.
In addition, holders whose Notes are accepted for payment in the offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest from and including the last interest payment date to, but not including, the applicable payment date for their Notes purchased pursuant to the offer. Notes tendered prior to the Withdrawal Deadline may be withdrawn at any time prior to the Withdrawal Deadline. Notes tendered after the Withdrawal Deadline may not be withdrawn.
If the purchase of all validly tendered Notes would cause us to purchase a principal amount greater than the tender cap set forth above, then the offer will be oversubscribed and CNX, if it accepts Notes in the offer, will accept for purchase tendered Notes on a prorated basis as described in the offer documents. At any time after the Early Tender Deadline and prior to the Expiration Time (such time, the "Early Acceptance Time"), CNX may elect to accept for purchase Notes tendered prior to such Early Acceptance Time on the terms and subject to the conditions of the offer, including any required proration. So long as the other terms and conditions described in the Offer to Purchase are satisfied, and subject to the Tender Cap, CNX intends to accept for purchase all Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline, and will only prorate such Notes if the aggregate amount of Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn exceeds the Tender Cap. If the Tender Offer is not fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Deadline, Holders who validly tender Notes after the Early Tender Deadline may be subject to proration, whereas Holders who validly tender Notes at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline will not be subject to proration. Furthermore, if the Tender Offer is fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Deadline, Holders who validly tender Notes after the Early Tender Deadline will not have any of their Notes accepted for payment. Payment for any Notes so accepted will be made promptly after the Early Acceptance Time, which is currently expected to occur on or about September 27, 2022, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to the offer.
CNX's obligation to accept for purchase, and to pay for, Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions described in the offer documents, including the completion of CNX's recently announced offering of $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its senior notes due 2031 on terms and conditions satisfactory to CNX. The offer is not conditioned upon any minimum amount of Notes being tendered and the offer may be amended, extended, terminated or withdrawn, subject to applicable law. The complete terms and conditions of the offer are set forth in the offer documents which are being sent to holders of Notes. Holders of Notes are urged to read the offer documents carefully.
