Acceptance of Maximum Tender Offer Notes with respect to the Maximum Tender Offer is subject to proration if the Maximum Tender Offer is oversubscribed. If any Maximum Tender Offer Notes are purchased in the Maximum Tender Offer, the Maximum Tender Offer Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time will be accepted for purchase in priority to other Maximum Tender Offer Notes tendered in the Maximum Tender Offer after the Early Tender Time. Accordingly, if the Maximum Purchase Amount is reached in respect of tenders made at or prior to the Early Tender Time, no Maximum Tender Offer Notes that are tendered after the Early Tender Time will be accepted for purchase. Series of Maximum Tender Offer Notes of the same Acceptance Priority Level will be treated equally (as though they are a single series) for purposes of acceptance and proration.The "Any and All Settlement Date" is the date that the Company accepts the Any and All Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Any and All Expiration Time, provided that all conditions to the Any and All Offer have been satisfied or waived by the Company, and the Company expects such date to be one business day following the Any and All Expiration Time. Provided that all conditions to the Maximum Tender Offer have been satisfied or waived by Anthem, following the Early Tender Time and prior to the Expiration Time, Anthem shall have the right, but not the obligation, to accept the Maximum Tender Offer Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time. Maximum Tender Offer Notes accepted on an Early Acceptance Date (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) may be settled on such date or promptly thereafter (the "Early Settlement Date"). The "Final Settlement Date" is the date that the Company settles all Maximum Tender Offer Notes not previously settled on the Early Settlement Date, if any, and the Company expects such date to be one business day following the Expiration Time. The Early Settlement Date is expected to be November 30, 2017, and the Final Settlement Date is expected to be December 13, 2017, in each case subject to change without notice. Anthem refers to each of the Early Settlement Date and the Final Settlement Date as a "Settlement Date."
