Tender Offers/2

  1. We will accept Notes in the order of their respective Acceptance Priority Level specified in the table above, subject to the satisfaction of the Financing Condition (as defined within the Offer to Purchase).
    It is possible that the Financing Condition might not be met with respect to any series of Notes with any Acceptance Priority Level, and such series of Notes will not be accepted for purchase, even if one or more series of Notes with a lower Acceptance Priority Level is accepted for purchase.
  2. The 3.400% Senior Unsecured Notes due March 2021, the 5.100% Senior Unsecured Notes due April 2021, the 2.950% Senior Unsecured Notes due May 2021, the 2.650% Senior Unsecured Notes due January 2022, the 4.875% Senior Unsecured Notes due January 2022 and the 4.000% Senior Unsecured Notes due March 2022 are collectively referred to as the 'Fixed Rate Notes'. The Floating Rate Senior Unsecured Notes due March 2021, the Floating Rate Senior Unsecured Notes due May 2021 and the Floating Rate Senior Unsecured Notes due January 2022 are collectively referred to as the 'Floating Rate Notes'.
  3. Per $1,000 principal amount.

The purpose of the Offers is to improve HSBC's liabilities structure, as the Notes cease to qualify as eligible liabilities items under CRR once they have a residual maturity of less than 12 months. 'CRR' refers to regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of June 26, 2013 on prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms and amending regulation (EU) No 648/2012, as amended, supplemented or replaced from time to time, and (where relevant) any applicable successor EU or UK legislation.

Each Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on November 24, 2020, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company in its sole discretion (such date and time with respect to an Offer, as the same may be extended, the 'Expiration Time'). Notes tendered for purchase may be validly withdrawn at any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on November 24, 2020 (such date and time with respect to an Offer, as the same may be extended, the 'Withdrawal Date'), but not thereafter, unless extended or earlier terminated with respect to an Offer by the Company in its sole discretion. We expect the Settlement Date to occur on the third business day after the Expiration Time, or November 30, 2020, unless extended or earlier terminated in respect of an Offer by the Company in its sole discretion (such date with respect to an Offer, as the same may be extended, the 'Settlement Date').

Each Offer is independent of the other Offers, and we may terminate, modify or waive the conditions of any Offer without terminating, modifying or waiving the conditions of any other Offer.

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer Documents, holders who (i) validly tender Notes at or prior to the Expiration Time or (ii) validly tender Notes at or prior to the Guaranteed Delivery Date pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures (each as defined in the Offer to Purchase), and whose Notes are accepted for purchase by us, will receive consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of each series of Notes, which will be payable in cash on the Settlement Date as described below (the 'Consideration').

The Consideration applicable to each series of Floating Rate Notes validly tendered and accepted by us pursuant to the Offers will be the Fixed Price specified in the table above for such series of Notes.

The Consideration applicable to each series of Fixed Rate Notes validly tendered and accepted by us pursuant to the Offers will be calculated at or around 11:00 a.m. (New York City Time) on November 24, 2020 (such date and time with respect to an Offer, as the same may be extended by the Company in its sole discretion, the 'Price Determination Date'), in accordance with the formula set forth in the Offer to Purchase and with standard market practice, using the applicable 'Offer Yield', which will be equal to the sum of:

  1. the applicable 'Reference Yield', as determined by the Dealer Manager, that corresponds to the bid-side yield of the Reference Security specified in the table above for such series of Fixed Rate Notes appearing on the Price Determination Date, such yield being directly quoted on the Bloomberg Reference Page (as defined below) and being rounded to the nearest 0.001 per cent. (with 0.0005 per cent. being rounded up), plus
  2. the Fixed Spread specified in the table above for such series of Notes.

Tender Offers/3

Accordingly, the Consideration payable by us for each $1,000 principal amount of each series of Fixed Rate Notes accepted by us will equal:

  1. the present value on the Settlement Date of $1,000 principal amount of such Fixed Rate Notes due on the maturity date of such Fixed Rate Notes and all scheduled interest payments on such $1,000 principal amount of such Fixed Rate Notes to be made from (but excluding) the Settlement Date up to and including such maturity date, discounted to the Settlement Date at a discount rate equal to the applicable Offer Yield, minus
  2. the Accrued Interest per $1,000 principal amount of such Fixed Rate Notes;

such total amount being rounded to the nearest cent per $1,000 principal amount of such Notes, and the above calculation being made in accordance with standard market practice as described by the formula set forth in the Offer to Purchase.

The 'Bloomberg Reference Page' means the page on Bloomberg from which the Dealer Manager will observe the bid-side yield of the Reference Security for each series of Fixed Rate Notes, which is expected to be PX3 or PX4, as applicable (or any other recognized quotation source selected by us in consultation with the Dealer Manager if such quotation source is not available or manifestly erroneous).

As soon as reasonably practicable after the Price Determination Date, the Company will issue a press release specifying the Consideration for each series of Fixed Rate Notes validly tendered and accepted.

In addition to the Consideration, holders whose Notes of a given series are accepted for purchase will also be paid a cash amount equal to accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes from, and including, the last interest payment date for such Notes to, but not including, the Settlement Date, rounded to the nearest cent (such amount in respect of a series of Notes, 'Accrued Interest'). Accrued Interest will be payable on the Settlement Date. For the avoidance of doubt, interest will cease to accrue on the Settlement Date for all Notes accepted in the Offers. Under no circumstances will any interest be payable to holders because of any delay on the part of Global Bondholder Services Corporation, as depositary, The Depository Trust Company ('DTC') or any other party in the transmission of funds to holders.

On the date of the Offer to Purchase, the Company launched a proposed new issuance (the 'Proposed Issuance') of senior unsecured debt securities in one or more series (the 'New Notes') which are not subject to the Offers. It is expected that the Offers will be financed with the net cash proceeds from the issuance of such New Notes, along with cash on hand, if necessary. No assurance can be given that the Proposed Issuance will be completed.

The Offers are subject to the terms and conditions described in the Offer Documents. In particular, the Company's obligation to complete an Offer with respect to a particular series of Notes is conditioned on satisfaction of the 'Financing Condition', meaning (1) the Proposed Issuance has been successfully completed on terms and conditions satisfactory to the Company in its sole discretion and (2) the aggregate principal amount of the Proposed Issuance, as set forth in an announcement at or around 10:00 a.m. (New York City Time) on November 18, 2020 (the 'Total Available Amount'), is sufficient to fund the sum of (a) the Consideration (excluding Accrued Interest) for all validly tendered and not validly withdrawn Notes of such series plus (b) the aggregate Consideration (excluding Accrued Interest) for all validly tendered and not validly withdrawn Notes of each series having a higher 'Acceptance Priority Level' (as specified in the above table, with 1 being the highest Acceptance Priority Level and 9 being the lowest Acceptance Priority Level), other than Excluded Notes (as defined below).

Notwithstanding any other provision in the Offer to Purchase to the contrary, if the Financing Condition is not satisfied for a particular series of Notes, at any time at or prior to the Expiration Time, then (1) we will not be obligated to accept for purchase such series of Notes and will terminate the Offer with respect to such series of Notes (such series of Notes, 'Excluded Notes'), and (2) if there is any series of Notes having a lower Acceptance Priority Level for which the Financing Condition is satisfied, meaning the Total Available Amount is equal to or greater than the sum of:
