Barclays Bank PLC Announces An Invitation To Purchase Notes For Cash

Tenders of Notes for purchase must be made through the Clearing Systems. The Issuer intends to announce, inter alia, its decision whether to accept valid tenders of Notes for purchase pursuant to the Offers in an announcement following the Expiration Deadline.

Tenders of Notes will be irrevocable except in the limited circumstances described under “ Amendment and Termination—Revocation Rights” in the Tender Offer Memorandum

Rationale for the Offers

The Issuer has today also invited holders of certain euro- and sterling-denominated debt securities to tender those securities for purchase. The targeting of these longer dated senior unsecured liabilities for repurchase is part of the Issuer’s ongoing liability management program, with the intention of optimizing the duration of its balance sheet and managing wholesale funding levels within its robust and conservative liquidity risk framework.

Accrued Interest Payment

The Issuer will pay accrued and unpaid interest in respect of all Notes validly tendered and delivered and accepted for purchase by the Issuer pursuant to the Offers, from (and including) the immediately preceding interest payment date for the relevant Series of Notes to (but excluding) the Settlement Date.

Tender Offer Period

The Offers commence on September 10, 2012 and will end at 11:59 p.m. (New York City time) on September 17, 2012 (the “ Expiration Deadline”), unless extended by the Issuer, in which case notification to that effect will be given by or on behalf of the Issuer by way of the issue of a press release to one or more Notifying News Service(s) and via RNS.

Noteholders wishing to participate in the Offers must deliver, or arrange to have delivered on their behalf, a valid Tender Instruction that is received by the Tender Agent by the Expiration Deadline.
