Staples, Inc.

The terms and conditions of the tender offer were set forth in Staples’ Offer to Purchase dated January 7, 2013 (the “Offer to Purchase”), and the related Letter of Transmittal.

The tender offer expired at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on February 4, 2013 (such date and time, the “Expiration Date”).

As previously announced, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 18, 2013 (the “Early Tender Date”), approximately $633 million in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes had been validly tendered and not withdrawn. Payment for these Notes was made on January 22, 2013.

Subsequent to the Early Tender Date, an additional $295,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes were tendered in the tender offer prior to the Expiration Date, and were accepted for purchase by Staples on February 5, 2013.
