The Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 30, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated by Pacific Life, with respect to any or all series of Notes (such date and time, as the same may be extended or earlier terminated, with respect to any or all series, the “Expiration Time”). Holders must validly tender and not properly withdraw their Notes at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 16, 2017, unless extended by Pacific Life, with respect to any or all series of Notes (such date and time, the “Early Tender Time”) in order to be eligible to receive the Full Tender Offer Consideration (defined below), which includes an early tender payment of $50 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes (the “Early Tender Payment”). Holders that validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Time and at or prior to the Expiration Time will not be eligible to receive the Early Tender Payment and will only be eligible to receive the Full Tender Offer Consideration minus the Early Tender Payment (the “Late Tender Offer Consideration”). In each case, Holders that validly tender Notes that are accepted for purchase by Pacific Life will receive accrued and unpaid interest from, and including, the last interest payment date for their tendered Notes to, but not including, the settlement date for such Notes, in each case rounded to the nearest cent (“Accrued Interest”). Notes validly tendered may be withdrawn at any time on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 16, 2017, with respect to any or all series of Notes (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Withdrawal Deadline”), unless extended by Pacific Life, but not thereafter.  The Depositary Trust Company and any broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee that holds the Notes may have earlier deadlines for tendering Notes pursuant to the Offer than the Early Tender Time or the Expiration Time. 

The terms and conditions of the Offer are described in the offer to purchase, dated October 2, 2017 (the “Offer to Purchase”), and the related letter of transmittal (the “Letter of Transmittal” and, together with the Offer to Purchase, the “Offer Documents”).

Tendered Notes will be accepted in the order of the acceptance priority level for such series (in numerical priority order) as set forth in the table above, with 1 being the highest acceptance priority level, and based on whether the Notes are tendered at or before the Early Tender Time or after the Early Tender Time, as described in the Offer to Purchase.  Notwithstanding the acceptance priority level, if any Notes are purchased in the Offer, Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time will be accepted for purchase in priority to Notes tendered after the Early Tender Time and at or prior to the Expiration Time.  Accordingly, if the Tender Cap is reached in respect of tenders made at or prior to the Early Tender Time, no Notes of any series tendered after the Early Tender Time (regardless of acceptance priority level) will be accepted for purchase, unless we increase the Tender Cap. Under certain circumstances, Pacific Life will accept tendered Notes of one or more of the series on a pro rata basis as further described in the Offer to Purchase. Pacific Life reserves the right, but is not obligated, to increase the Tender Cap.

The Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, including a financing condition, specified in the Offer to Purchase.

Under these conditions and as more fully described in the Offer to Purchase, Pacific Life expressly reserves its right, but is not obligated, with respect to any or all series of Notes, to extend the Offer at any time and may amend or terminate the Offer if, before such time as any Notes have been accepted for payment pursuant to the Offer, any condition of the Offer is not satisfied or, where applicable, waived.

The “Full Tender Offer Consideration” payable for the Notes will be a price per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes equal to an amount that would reflect, as of the date of purchase, a yield to the maturity date of the applicable series of Notes (which is December 30, 2023 for the 7.90% Surplus Notes, June 15, 2039 for the 9.25% Surplus Notes, February 10, 2020 for the 6.00% Senior Notes, September 15, 2033 for the 6.60% Senior Notes and January 30, 2043 for the 5.125% Senior Notes) equal to the sum of (i) the Reference Yield for the applicable series of Notes, plus (ii) the applicable Fixed Spread.  The Early Tender Payment is included in the amount of Full Tender Offer Consideration. See Schedule A to the Offer to Purchase for the formula to be used in determining the Full Tender Offer Consideration for the Notes.

If the Tender Cap is reached in respect of tenders made at or prior to the Early Tender Time, Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time will be subject to acceptance on a prorated basis.  If the Tender Cap is not reached in respect of tenders made at or prior to the Early Tender Time, but is reached in respect of tenders made at or prior to the Expiration Time, Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time and at or prior to the Expiration Time will be subject to acceptance on a prorated basis.  

Pacific Life may, but it is not obligated, to elect following the Early Tender Time and prior to the Expiration Time to accept the Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time provided that all conditions to the Offer, including the financing condition, have been satisfied or waived by Pacific Life. Pacific Life may then settle such Notes at such time or promptly thereafter (such date of settlement, which is expected to be October 24, 2017 and is subject to change without notice, the “Early Settlement Date”). The “Final Settlement Date” is the date that Pacific Life settles all Notes accepted for purchase and not previously settled on the Early Settlement Date, if any, and Pacific Life expects such date to be one business day following the Expiration Time. Pacific Life refers to each of the Early Settlement Date and the Final Settlement Date as a “Settlement Date.”
