CHICAGO – May 23, 2019 — Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) (the “Company”)  announced today the pricing terms of its previously announced tender offers to purchase for cash (i) any and all of the Company’s outstanding securities listed in Table I below (the “Any and All Notes”) (such offer, the “Any and All Offer”), and (ii) up to the Maximum Waterfall Tender Amount (as defined below) in aggregate purchase price of the Company’s outstanding securities listed in Table II below (collectively, the “Waterfall Notes” and, together with the Any and All Notes, the “Securities”), subject to the Acceptance Priority Levels as defined below (such offer, the “Waterfall Offer”). The “Maximum Waterfall Tender Amount” is an aggregate purchase price equal to $650 million less the aggregate purchase price of the Any and All Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase in the Any and All Offer. The Company also announced the principal amount of each series of Securities that it expects to accept pursuant to the tender offers, subject to the satisfaction of waiver of certain conditions, as described below. The tender offers are being made upon and are subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated May 9, 2019, as amended earlier today, and the related Letter of Transmittal (as they may each be further amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Tender Offer Documents”).

The “Total Consideration” for each series of Securities is payable to holders of the Securities who validly tendered and did not properly withdraw their Securities at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 22, 2019 (the “Early Tender Deadline”) and whose Securities are accepted for purchase by the Company.  The Reference Yields listed in the tables below were determined at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on May 23, 2019 (the “Price Determination Date”) by the lead dealer managers.  Payments for Securities purchased in connection with the Early Tender Deadline will also include accrued and unpaid interest from and including the last interest payment date applicable to the relevant series of Securities up to, but not including, the early settlement date for such Securities accepted for purchase, which is currently expected to be May 24, 2019 (the “Early Settlement Date”).

As listed in the tables above, the Company expects to accept for purchase, and pay for, $90,076,000 aggregate principal amount of its 7.500% Senior Notes due 2025, $45,016,000 aggregate principal amount of its 6.500% Senior Notes due 2025, $11,501,000 aggregate principal amount of its 6.500% Senior Notes due 2028, $16,276,000 aggregate principal amount of its 6.625% Senior Notes due 2037, $249,683,000 aggregate principal amount of its 3.500% Senior Notes due 2021 and $198,233,000 aggregate principal amount of its 3.750% Senior Notes due 2022, on the Early Settlement Date.
 
The Company’s obligation to accept for payment and pay for the Securities validly tendered in the tender offers is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions described in the Offer to Purchase.
 
Although the tender offers are scheduled to expire at midnight, New York City time, at the end of June 6, 2019, unless extended or terminated, because the Waterfall Offer was fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Deadline, the Company does not expect to accept for purchase any Waterfall Notes tendered after the Early Tender Deadline. Holders of Any and All Notes who validly tender such notes following the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Date will receive the applicable Total Consideration for Securities accepted for purchase specified in the table above.  Securities not accepted for purchase will be promptly returned or credited to the holder’s account. The withdrawal deadline of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 22, 2019 has passed and, accordingly, Securities validly tendered in the tender offers may no longer be withdrawn except where additional withdrawal rights are required by law.

None of the Company or its affiliates, their respective boards of directors, the dealer managers, the information agent and tender agent or the trustee is making any recommendation as to whether holders should tender any Securities in response to any of the tender offers, and neither the Company nor any such other person has authorized any person to make any such recommendation.
