Bombardier intends to settle payment for the Notes that have been accepted for purchase (and not purchased on the Early Settlement Date) on March 29, 2019.
Solely for the purposes of determining the aggregate consideration paid for 6⅛% Notes within the Aggregate Maximum Tender Consideration and available for purchases pursuant to the Tender Offers, the aggregate consideration for 6⅛% Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the 6⅛% Notes Tender Offer was converted into U.S. dollars using the EUR to USD exchange rate as of 2:00 P.M., New York City time on the business day prior to the 6⅛% Notes Expiration Date as reported on Bloomberg screen page “FXIP” under the heading “FX Rate vs. USD,” which was €1.00 equals US$1.1283.

Holders must make their own decision as to whether to tender their 8.750% Notes, and, if so, the principal amount of 8.750% Notes to tender.
All of the 8.750% Notes are held in book-entry form. If you hold 8.750% Notes through a broker, dealer, bank, trust company or other intermediary or nominee, you must contact such broker, dealer, bank, trust company or other intermediary or nominee if you wish to tender 8.750% Notes pursuant to the 8.750% Notes Tender Offer.
