We will only accept for purchase Notes of a series in an aggregate principal amount up to the applicable Tender Cap. The Tender Offer is not conditioned upon any minimum amount of either series of Notes being tendered. We reserve the right, but are under no obligation, to increase, decrease or eliminate any Tender Cap with respect to any series of Notes at any time, subject to applicable law, which could result in our purchasing a greater aggregate principal amount of Notes. The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on November 16, 2020, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the "Expiration Date") or earlier terminated. To receive the applicable Total Tender Offer Consideration, which includes the Early Tender Premium of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes for each series as set forth above, holders of Notes subject to the Tender Offer must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Notes on or before the Early Tender Deadline, which is 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 2, 2020, unless extended. Holders of Notes subject to the Tender Offer who validly tender their Notes after the Early Tender Deadline and on or before the Expiration Date and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will receive the applicable Late Tender Offer Consideration.
The applicable Total Tender Offer Consideration for each $1,000 in principal amount of Notes tendered and accepted for payment pursuant to the Tender Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase. The consideration will be determined by reference to a fixed spread specified for such series of Notes over the reference yield based on the bid-side price of the applicable Reference U.S. Treasury Security specified in the table above, as fully described in the Offer to Purchase. The consideration will be calculated by the Dealer Managers for the Tender Offer at 10:30 a.m., New York City time, on the business day immediately following the Early Tender Deadline, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the "Price Determination Date"). The Price Determination Date is expected to be November 3, 2020. The Late Tender Offer Consideration is the applicable Total Tender Offer Consideration minus the applicable Early Tender Premium for each series of Notes as set forth in the table above.
In addition to the applicable Total Tender Offer Consideration or applicable Late Tender Offer Consideration, as the case may be, accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date will be paid in cash on all validly tendered Notes accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer. The purchase price plus accrued and unpaid interest for Notes that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or before the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase will be paid by the Company in same day funds promptly following the Early Tender Deadline (the "Early Settlement Date"). The Company expects that the Early Settlement Date will be November 4, 2020, the first business day after the Price Determination Date. The purchase price plus accrued and unpaid interest for Notes that are validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline and on or before the Expiration Date and accepted for purchase will be paid by the Company in same day funds promptly following the Expiration Date (the "Final Settlement Date"). The Company expects that the Final Settlement Date will be November 18, 2020, the second business day after the Expiration Date. No tenders will be valid if submitted after the Expiration Date. If the Company purchases the Tender Cap for a series of Notes on the Early Settlement Date, Holders who validly tender Notes of that series after the Early Tender Deadline but on or before the Expiration Date will not have any of their Notes accepted for payment, absent any subsequent increase to the applicable Tender Cap. Holders of Notes subject to the Tender Offer who validly tender their Notes on or before the Early Tender Deadline may not withdraw their Notes after 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 2, 2020, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the "Withdrawal Deadline"), except in the limited circumstances described in the Offer to Purchase. Holders of Notes subject to the Tender Offer who validly tender their Notes after the Withdrawal Deadline but on or before the Expiration Date may not withdraw their Notes except in the limited circumstances described in the Offer to Purchase.
The Company intends to use one or more of the following sources to provide the total amount of funds required to purchase the Notes sought pursuant to the Tender Offer, to pay all accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes, and to pay all fees and expenses in connection therewith: cash, cash equivalents and other available cash resources.
