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 defined below) and is inclusive of the applicable Early Tender Premium.

The Tender Offers consist of offers to purchase the Notes for cash, on the terms and conditions set forth in the offer to purchase, dated June 20, 2019 (as the same may be amended or supplemented, the "Offer to Purchase").  Subject to the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, proration (if applicable) and the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to the Tender Offers, including a financing condition, HCP will accept for purchase on the Early Settlement Date, if any, or the Final Settlement Date (each as defined in the Offer to Purchase), as applicable, Notes validly tendered in the Tender Offers, as follows: (i) first, up to $200,000,000 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, we 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 1 being the highest Acceptance Priority Level and 2 being the lowest Acceptance Priority Level) and the priority described in the immediately following paragraph.  In no event will HCP purchase Notes in excess of the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount.

If any such excess Notes exist, all excess Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time (as defined below) having a higher Acceptance Priority Level will be accepted before any excess Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time having a lower Acceptance Priority Level are accepted in the Tender Offers, and all excess Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time having a higher Acceptance Priority Level will be accepted before any excess Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time having a lower Acceptance Priority Level are accepted in the Tender Offers.  However, in any such case, Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time will be accepted for purchase in priority to other Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time, even if such Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time have a higher Acceptance Priority Level than Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time, and even if such Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time are yet to satisfy their applicable Target Allocation and the Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time have satisfied their applicable Target Allocation.

The Tender Offers will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City Time, at the end of July 18, 2019, or any other date and time to which HCP extends the applicable Tender Offer (such time and date, as it may be extended with respect to a Tender Offer, the "Expiration Time"), unless the applicable Tender Offer is earlier terminated.  Holders of each series of Notes must validly tender and not validly withdraw such Notes prior to or at 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"), to be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration, which is inclusive of an amount in cash equal to the applicable amount set forth in the table above under the heading "Early Tender Premium" (the "Early Tender Premium"), plus Accrued Interest (as defined below).  Holders of the Notes who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Time but prior to or at the Expiration Time will be eligible to receive an amount equal to the applicable Total Consideration minus the applicable Early Tender Premium plus Accrued Interest.

Subject to applicable law, HCP may increase or decrease the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount in its sole discretion.

The Notes may be validly withdrawn at any time prior to , but not after, 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 "Withdrawal Deadline").  Subject to applicable law, HCP may increase or decrease the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount without extending the Withdrawal Deadline.

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 will be 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, on July 5, 2019, unless extended or the applicable Tender Offer is earlier terminated.

Except as set forth below, payment for the Notes that are validly tendered prior to or at the Expiration Time will, if not previously paid for on an earlier settlement date, if applicable, be made on a date promptly following the Expiration Time, which is currently anticipated to be July 22, 2019, the second business day after the Expiration Time.  HCP reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make payment for Notes that are validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Time on an earlier settlement date, which, if HCP so elects, is currently anticipated to be July 8, 2019, provided that the conditions to the applicable Tender Offer have been satisfied or waived.

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 ("Accrued Interest").

The Tender Offers are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, including a financing condition, as more fully set forth in the Offer to Purchase. The Tender Offers are not subject to minimum tender conditions.
