Rationale for the Tender Offers
We are making the Tender Offers to purchase certain outstanding debt issued by Walmart to reduce our interest expense. Securities that are accepted in the Tender Offers will be purchased, retired and canceled by Walmart and will no longer remain outstanding obligations of Walmart.

“The Tender Offers allow us to take advantage of the current favorable interest rate environment and reduce our interest expense going forward. We expect to record a charge for this discrete item upon completion of the Tender Offers,” said Brett Biggs, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Details of the Tender Offer
Each Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 13, 2017, unless, subject to applicable law, such deadline is extended by the Company in respect of one or both of the Tender Offers or one or both of the Tender Offers is earlier terminated by the Company, in each case, in its sole and absolute discretion (such date and time, as the same may be extended in respect of one or both Tender Offers, the “Expiration Date”). Securities tendered at or prior to the applicable Early Participation Date (as defined herein) may be withdrawn at any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 28, 2017, unless extended by the Company in respect of one or both of the Tender Offers in its sole and absolute discretion (such date and time, as the same may be extended in respect of one or both Tender Offers, the “Withdrawal Date”), but not thereafter.

The Company will accept for payment, and thereby purchase, all Securities validly tendered (and not subsequently validly withdrawn) pursuant to a Tender Offer at or prior to the applicable Expiration Date, subject to the applicable Maximum Amount and based on the applicable acceptance priority levels set forth in Table I and Table II above (the “Acceptance Priority Levels”), and subject to proration (if applicable), provided that, with respect to each Tender Offer, Securities tendered at or prior to the Early Participation Date will be accepted for purchase in priority to Securities tendered after the Early Participation Date, but at or prior to the Expiration Deadline, regardless of the priority of the series of such later tendered Securities.

Holders of Securities that are validly tendered at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 28, 2017, unless extended by the Company in respect of one or both of the Tender Offers in its sole and absolute discretion (such date and time, as the same may be extended in respect of one or both Tender Offers, the “Early Participation Date”), and not subsequently validly withdrawn, and accepted for purchase by the Company will receive the applicable Total Consideration (as defined below) for their Securities, together with any Accrued Interest. The Total Consideration payable for each series of Securities includes the early participation amount applicable to such series of Securities, as set forth in the applicable table above (the “Early Participation Amount”). Holders validly tendering their Securities after the applicable Early Participation Date, but at or prior to the applicable Expiration Date, will only be eligible to receive the applicable “Tender Offer Consideration,” which is an amount equal to the applicable Total Consideration less the applicable Early Participation Amount, together with any Accrued Interest.

Each Tender Offer is subject to certain conditions. Subject to the Company’s right to terminate a Tender Offer, as described below, and subject to the applicable Maximum Amount and based on the Acceptance Priority Levels and proration, the Company will purchase in each Tender Offer (i) the Securities that have been validly tendered (and not subsequently validly withdrawn) in that Tender Offer at or prior to the applicable Early Participation Date, subject to all conditions to such Tender Offer having been satisfied or waived by the Company, promptly following such Early Participation Date (the date of such purchase, which is expected to be the fifth business day following the Early Participation Date, the “Early Payment Date”), and (ii) the Securities that have been validly tendered after the applicable Early Participation Date, but at or prior to the applicable Expiration Date, subject to all conditions to such Tender Offer having been satisfied or waived by the Company, promptly following the Expiration Date (the date of such purchase, which is expected to be the second business day following the Expiration Date, the “Final Payment Date,” and together with the Early Payment Date, each a “Payment Date”). If, on the applicable Early Payment Date, Securities are purchased in a Tender Offer for an aggregate purchase price that is equal to the Maximum Amount for such Tender Offer, no additional Securities will be purchased in such Tender Offer, and there will be no Final Payment Date for such Tender Offer.

The “Total Consideration” payable for each series of Securities will be a price for each $1,000 or £1,000 principal amount, as applicable, of such series of Securities validly tendered at or prior to the applicable Early Participation Date, and accepted for purchase by the Company (subject to the applicable Acceptance Priority Levels and to proration, if any) equal to an amount, calculated in accordance with Schedule A-1 or A-2, as applicable, to the Offer to Purchase that would reflect, as of the applicable Early Payment Date, a yield to the maturity date of such series of Securities equal to the sum of (i) the Reference Yield (as defined below) for such series of Securities, determined in each case as of 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) by the Joint Lead Dealer-Managers (as defined below), on the business day following the applicable Early Participation Date (the “Reference Yield Determination Date”), plus (ii) the fixed spread applicable to such series of Securities, as set forth in the Tables above (the “Fixed Spread”), excluding Accrued Interest. The Total Consideration includes the applicable Early Participation Amount. The “Reference Yield” means, with respect to each series of Dollar Securities, the bid-side price of the applicable reference security listed in the Tables above (the “Reference Security”) as displayed on the applicable reference page set forth in Table I above, and with respect to each series of Sterling Securities, the mid-market price of the applicable Reference Security as displayed on the applicable reference page set forth in Table II above.
