ATLANTA, July 29, 2021
ATLANTA, July 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE:DAL, Financial) ("Delta") announced today the early tender participation results, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 28, 2021 (the "Early Tender Time"), of its previously announced cash tender offer for up to $1.0 billion in aggregate purchase price, excluding accrued and unpaid interest (the "Maximum Tender Amount"), of certain of its outstanding debt securities (the "Notes").
With respect to the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Time, Delta has elected to have an early settlement date to make payment for such Notes on July 30, 2021. The tender offer is being made on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated July 15, 2021 (the "Offer to Purchase").
The following table sets forth certain information regarding the Notes and participation in the tender offer, including the aggregate principal amount of each series of Notes that was validly tendered as of the Early Tender Time according to D.F. King & Co., Inc., the tender agent and information agent for the tender offer.

The proration factor has been rounded to the nearest tenth of a percentage point for presentation purposes.
The deadline to withdraw Notes validly tendered in the tender offer was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 28, 2021, which deadline has not been extended. Accordingly, previously tendered Notes may no longer be withdrawn, except where Delta determines additional withdrawal rights are required by law.
The acceptance of tendered Notes was made in accordance with the tender offer terms as described in the Offer to Purchase. As the aggregate purchase price of the 2025 Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn as of the Early Tender Time exceeded the maximum aggregate purchase price of $800 million, excluding accrued and unpaid interest, for the 2025 Notes (the "2025 Note Cap"), the 2025 Notes that were accepted for purchase by Delta were prorated so as to accept the maximum principal amount of the 2025 Notes that did not result in the 2025 Note Cap being exceeded. As a result of proration rounding, $799,999,200 in aggregate purchase price of 2025 Notes, excluding accrued and unpaid interest, was accepted for purchase and $200,000,560 in aggregate purchase price of 2026 Notes, excluding accrued and unpaid interest, was accepted for purchase. In addition, as the aggregate purchase price of the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn as of the Early Tender Time exceeded the Maximum Tender Amount, the 2026 Notes that were accepted for purchase by Delta were prorated so as to accept the maximum principal amount of the 2026 Notes that did not result in the Maximum Tender Amount being exceeded. Since the aggregate purchase price of the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn as of the Early Tender Time exceeds the Maximum Tender Amount, Delta will not accept for purchase any of the SkyMiles Notes that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn or any Notes tendered after the Early Tender Time.
