The complete terms and conditions of the Exchange Offer were set forth in a confidential offering memorandum dated June 13, 2012, and related letter of transmittal.

As of the Expiration Date, according to D.F.

Holders of Old Notes who tendered for exchange after the Early Participation Date, but at or prior to the Expiration Date, participating in the Exchange Offer will receive a net interest cash payment (as calculated in accordance with the confidential offering memorandum) for each $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes exchanged, which amount represents interest payable on such Old Notes up to, but not including, the Final Settlement Date, less interest accrued on the applicable series of New Notes issued in exchange therefor up to, but not including, the Final Settlement Date.

The New 2022 Notes to be issued on the Final Settlement Date will constitute a further issuance of, and form a single series with, the 4.25% Senior Notes due 2022 that Generation issued for cash on June 18, 2012, in the original aggregate principal amount of $275,000,000 (Original 2022 Notes) and the New 2022 Notes issued on the Early Settlement Date in connection with the 2022 Exchange Offer, in the original aggregate principal amount of $248,237,000.  The New 2042 Notes to be issued on the Final Settlement Date will constitute a further issuance of, and form a single series with, the 5.60% Senior Notes due 2042 that Generation issued for cash on June 18, 2012, in the original aggregate principal amount of $500,000,000 (Original 2042 Notes, and together with the Original 2022 Notes, Original Notes) and the New 2042 Notes issued on the Early Settlement Date in connection with the 2042 Exchange Offer, in the original aggregate principal amount of $286,830,000.
