The inception of new technologies has always been cataloged as a disruptor. There has never been such a technology that can carry the ability to disrupt ordinary business practices around the globe. Blockchain technology applications have only recently come to light, but are becoming more relevant and its potential only continues to grow. The wide use of Blockchain has been recorded also in the startup-up and SMEs companies and the booms are yet to come.

There are many ways in which businesses can already use blockchain and they depend on the industry in which they operate. In the real estate industry, there are marketplaces for renting or selling properties on blockchain-based P2P marketplaces. The same goes for the insurance industry, where blockchain-based applications already manage claims. The hype goes on and we can see the use of blockchain-based security applications in the IoT industry.

We must also mention logistics, where companies can tap into blockchain-based platforms that monitor and track freight movement. The list goes on and we are seeing these implementations on a daily base.

Small businesses can get ahead, innovate and build an edge with blockchain transformation by using blockchain-based services as well as creating their own apps on top of blockchain – decentralized apps, or DApps. Finally, businesses can already use smart contracts to regulate and govern relationships and agreements with other entities.

Most importantly, we can see that the biggest way in which blockchain technology is going to revolutionize SMEs is its ability to develop smart contracts.  All thanks to smart contracts, remote and autonomous consensus between two parties can be done through a single click on a self-reliant infrastructure that can help SMEs grow beyond their wildest imagination.

As a decentralized system, there is no need to pay intermediaries and both the enterprise and the consumer save a lot of money. Plus, the fact that blockchains are immutable makes it a lot more secure than traditional systems.

The Offer is being made upon, and is subject to, the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated August 15, 2019 (the “Offer to Purchase”), and the related Letter of Transmittal. The Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on September 12, 2019, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (the “Expiration Date”). Tenders of Notes may be withdrawn at any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 28, 2019 (the “Early Tender Deadline”), but may not be withdrawn thereafter except in certain limited circumstances where additional withdrawal rights are required by law.

The total consideration (the “Total Consideration”) paid in the Offer for Notes that are validly tendered and not withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to a fixed spread over the yield to maturity of the Reference U.S. Treasury Security specified in the table above and in the Offer to Purchase and will include an early tender premium of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes accepted for purchase (the “Early Tender Premium”). Holders of Notes who validly tender their Notes following the Early Tender Deadline and on or prior to the Expiration Date will only receive the applicable “Tender Offer Consideration” per $1,000 principal amount of any such Notes tendered by such holders that are accepted for purchase, which is equal to the Total Consideration minus the Early Tender Premium. The Total Consideration will be determined at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on August 29, 2019 unless extended by the Company (the “Tender Offer Price Determination Date”).

Tenders of Notes will be accepted only in principal amounts equal to $2,000 or integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof.

The settlement date for the Notes that are tendered following the Early Tender Deadline but on or prior to the Expiration Date is expected to be September 16, 2019 (the “Final Settlement Date”), subject to all conditions to the Offer having been either satisfied or waived by the Issuers, assuming Notes having an aggregate principal amount equal to the Tender Cap are not purchased on the Early Settlement Date.

Subject to the Tender Cap, all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or before the Early Tender Deadline will be accepted before any Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline. Even if the Offer is not fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Deadline, subject to the Tender Cap, Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or before the Early Tender Deadline will be accepted for purchase in priority to Notes tendered after the Early Tender Deadline.

Notes may be subject to proration if the aggregate principal amount validly tendered and not validly withdrawn would cause the Tender Cap to be exceeded. Furthermore, if the Offer is fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Deadline, holders who validly tender Notes following the Early Tender Deadline will not have any of their Notes accepted for payment.

The Company’s obligation to consummate the Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, which are more fully described in the Offer to Purchase, including, among others, the Issuers’ receipt of aggregate proceeds (before underwriter’s discounts and commissions and other offering expenses) of at least $500 million from an offering of new senior notes, on terms satisfactory to the Issuers.
