(1)    Per $1,000 principal amount.

(2)    The Total Consideration for Notes validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Time (as defined below) and accepted for purchase is calculated using the applicable Fixed Spread (as set forth in the table above) and is inclusive of the applicable Early Tender Premium (as set forth in the table above).

The Tender Offers were made on the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated June 20, 2019, as amended on June 20, 2019 (as the same may be further amended or supplemented, the "Offer to Purchase"). The Tender Offers will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City Time, at the end of July 18, 2019, unless the applicable Tender Offer is earlier terminated.

The applicable "Total Consideration" for each $1,000 principal amount of each series of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the applicable Tender Offer was determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the applicable fixed spread for each series of Notes specified in the table above plus the applicable yield based on the bid-side price of the applicable U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified in the table above at 10:00 a.m., New York City Time, today.

Only holders of Notes who validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to 12:00 midnight, New York City Time, at the end of July 3, 2019 (such date and time, as it may be extended with respect to a Tender Offer, the "Early Tender Time") are eligible to receive the Total Consideration for such Notes accepted for purchase.  Holders of each series of Notes will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on their Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the applicable last interest payment date up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date. Withdrawal rights for the Notes expired at 12:00 midnight, New York City Time, at the end of July 3, 2019. On July 8, 2019, HCP expects to pay for the Securities that were validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Time and that are accepted for purchase. Since the Tender Offers were fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Time, HCP does not expect to accept for purchase any Notes tendered after the Early Tender Time.

The terms and conditions of the Tender Offers provide that, subject to the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, proration (if applicable) and the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions of the Tender Offers, HCP will accept for purchase on the Early Settlement Date (which is expected to be July 8, 2019) Notes validly tendered as of the Early Tender Time in the Tender Offers, as follows: (i) first, up to $250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of each series of Notes (with respect to each series of Notes, the "Target Allocation"); and (ii) second, if Notes of any series are tendered in an aggregate principal amount in excess of the Target Allocation, HCP will accept for purchase any Notes tendered in excess of the applicable Target Allocation, based on the Acceptance Priority Levels set forth in the table above (with the Company's 2023 Notes having a higher Acceptance Priority Level than the Company's 2022 Notes).

Because the aggregate principal amount of the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn exceeds the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, HCP will not accept for purchase all of the Notes that have been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and will only accept for purchase the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount of those Notes.  In addition, because the aggregate principal amount of each series of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn exceeds its Target Allocation, HCP will only accept for purchase $250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of each series of Notes. Accordingly, the Notes of each series validly tendered and not validly withdrawn will be subject to proration. The Company will use a proration rate of approximately 53% for the 2023 Notes and approximately 67% for the 2022 Notes. Such Notes tendered by a holder will be multiplied by the applicable proration rate and then rounded down to the nearest $1,000 increment.
