Comcast has accepted for purchase all Comcast Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Expiration Time and Sky has accepted for purchase all 3.750% Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Expiration Time. Holders whose Notes have been accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on the purchased Notes from, and including, the last interest payment date for such Notes up to, but excluding, the Settlement Date (as defined below). The Issuers also expect to accept Notes validly tendered and delivered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures described in the Tender Offer Documents. The Issuers will not accept any further tenders.

The settlement date for Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Expiration Time is expected to be May 10, 2023 (the “Settlement Date”). On May 1, 2023, Comcast priced an offering of $5.0 billion aggregate principal amount of new notes (the “New Notes Offering”). The New Notes Offering is expected to close on May 9, 2023, subject to customary closing conditions. Comcast intends to use all or a portion of the net proceeds from the New Notes Offering to fund the purchase of the Comcast Notes. Sky intends to fund the purchase of the 3.750% Notes with cash on hand.

Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and TD Securities (USA) LLC served as Joint Dealer Managers for the tender offer.

This news release is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell any securities. The tender offers were made only by, and pursuant to the terms of, the Tender Offer Documents. The tender offers were not made in any jurisdiction in which the making or acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the securities, blue sky or other laws of such jurisdiction. In any jurisdiction where the laws require the tender offers to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the tender offers were made by the Joint Dealer Managers on behalf of the Issuers. None of the Issuers, the Tender and Information Agent or the Joint Dealer Managers, nor any of their affiliates, has made any recommendation as to whether holders should tender or refrain from tendering all or any portion of their Notes in response to the tender offers.
