Barclays Bank PLC Announces An Offer To Purchase Notes For Cash Using A Modified “Dutch Auction” Procedure

In the event that Tender Offer is not oversubscribed at the Early Participation Deadline and the purchase of all Notes validly tendered after the Early Participation Deadline but prior to the Expiration Deadline would cause the Issuer to accept an aggregate principal amount of Notes in excess of the Tender Cap, then the Tender Offer will be oversubscribed at the Expiration Deadline, and the Issuer will accept for payment all Notes validly tendered tendered (and not withdrawn) after the Early Participation Deadline but prior to the Expiration Deadline on a prorated basis using a single proration factor across both series of Notes, such that the Issuer purchases the maximum aggregate principal amount of the Notes that does not exceed the Tender Cap.

Withdrawal Rights

Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Participation Deadline may be withdrawn by or on behalf of a holder at any time prior to the Early Participation Deadline, but not thereafter, by delivering a written notice of withdrawal, or a facsimile of one, with the required information as set forth in the Offer to Purchase to the Tender Agent prior to the Early Participation Deadline. Notes tendered after the Early Participation Deadline but prior to the Expiration Deadline may be withdrawn by or on behalf of a holder any time prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 25, 2013, unless extended (the “ Withdrawal Deadline”), but not thereafter, by delivering a written notice of withdrawal, or a facsimile of one, with the required information as set forth in the Offer to Purchase to the Tender Agent prior to the Withdrawal Deadline.
