(1)                                 The applicable spread to be used in determining the consideration that may be payable in respect of debt securities subject to the Dutch Auction Offer will equal the indicated base spread minus the clearing premium determined pursuant to the Dutch auction procedure described herein.  The premium range is for Holders specifying a premium.  Holders who tender their debt securities without specifying a premium will be deemed to have specified a premium of zero basis points.

 



 

(2)           Per $1,000 principal amount of debt securities accepted for purchase.

 

The principal amount of debt securities to be purchased in the Dutch Auction Offer will be equal to the difference between $400 million and the principal amount of debt securities purchased through the Any and All Offer (the “Tender Cap”).  The amounts of each series of debt securities that are purchased in the Dutch Auction Offer may be prorated as set forth in the Offer to Purchase.  Neither offer is conditioned upon any minimum amount of debt securities being tendered or the consummation of the other offer.  Each offer may be amended, extended or terminated separately.  As of the date of the Offer to Purchase, the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the debt securities subject to the Any and All Offer is $251,939,000, and the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the debt securities subject to the Dutch Auction Offer is $1,110,703,000.

 

The Any and All Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m. EDT on June 7, 2010, unless extended.  Holders of debt securities subject to the Any and All Offer must validly tender and not validly withdraw their debt securities before 5:00 p.m. EDT on the Any and All Offer expiration date to be eligible to receive the Any and All Offer Total Consideration.

 

The Dutch Auction Offer will expire at 12:00 Midnight EDT on June 21, 2010, unless extended.  Holders of debt securities subject to the Dutch Auction Offer must validly tender and not validly withdraw their debt securities before 5:00 p.m. EDT on June 7, 2010, unless extended, to be eligible to receive the applicable Dutch Auction Offer Total Consideration, which includes an Early Tender Premium of $50 per $1,000 principal amount of debt securities accepted for purchase pursuant to the Dutch Auction Offer.  Holders of debt securities subject to the Dutch Auction Offer who validly tender their debt securities after 5:00 p.m. EDT on June 7, 2010 (the “Early Tender Date”) and before the Dutch Auction Offer expiration date will only be eligible to receive an amount equal to the applicable Dutch Auction Offer Total Consideration minus the Early Tender Premium.

 

Debt securities subject to the Any and All Offer may be validly withdrawn at any time before 5:00 p.m. EDT on June 7, 2010, unless extended.  Debt securities subject to the Dutch Auction Offer tendered before the Early Tender Date may be validly withdrawn at any time before 5:00 p.m. EDT on the Early Tender Date, but not thereafter unless otherwise required by applicable law.  Debt securities subject to the Dutch Auction Offer tendered after the Early Tender Date may not be validly withdrawn, unless otherwise required by applicable law.

 

The Any and All Offer Total Consideration per $1,000 principal amount of debt securities validly tendered and accepted for payment pursuant to the Any and All Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the fixed spread specified over the yield based on the bid side price of the specified reference U.S. Treasury Security as displayed on the Bloomberg Reference Page specified in the table above, as calculated by the Lead Dealer Managers, J.P. Morgan Securities Inc., Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and HSBC Securities (USA) Inc., at 2:00 p.m. EDT on June 7, 2010.  Holders whose debt securities are purchased pursuant to the Any and All Offer will also receive accrued and unpaid interest thereon from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the Any and All Offer Settlement Date, which is expected to be June 8, 2010, unless the Any and all Offer is extended.  The base spread and reference U.S. Treasury Security are listed in the table above.

 



 

The Dutch Auction Offer Total Consideration for each series per each $1,000 principal amount of debt securities validly tendered and accepted for payment pursuant to the Dutch Auction Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to a base spread specified for the series minus a premium that is not less than zero basis points or greater than 25 basis points, as determined by the modified “Dutch Auction” procedure described in the Offer to Purchase for the series over the yield based on the bid side price of the specified reference U.S. Treasury Security as displayed on the Bloomberg Reference Page specified in the table above, as calculated by the Lead Dealer Managers at 2:00 p.m. EDT on June 7, 2010.  Holders whose debt securities are purchased pursuant to the Dutch Auction Offer will also receive accrued and unpaid interest thereon from the applicable last interest payment date up to, but not including, the Dutch Auction Offer Settlement Date, which is expected to be June 22, 2010, unless the Dutch Auction Offer is extended.  The base spread and reference U.S. Treasury Security for each series are listed in the table above.

 

Under the modified “Dutch Auction” procedure, Motorola will accept debt securities validly tendered in the order of lowest to highest premiums specified by the Holders and will select the single lowest premium that will enable Motorola to purchase debt securities in the Dutch Auction Offer in an aggregate principal amount up to the Tender Cap.  Holders who tender their debt securities without specifying a premium will be deemed to have specified a premium of zero basis points.

 

The Offer to Purchase and related Letter of Transmittal also address certain U.S. federal income tax issues.  Holders should seek their own advice based on their particular circumstances from an independent tax advisor.
