Rakuten is engaging in the Offers, and related Financing Transaction (as defined below), to proactively manage and extend the maturity profile of its debt. The Offers are being made pursuant and are subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated January 25, 2024 (the “Offer to Purchase”), available via the offer website: https://www.gbsc-usa.com/rakuten/ (the “Offer Website”), including a condition to the Offers of the completion by Rakuten of the private placements of senior notes announced concurrently with the Offers (the “Financing Transaction”) to fund the Total Consideration for Notes to be purchased pursuant to the Offers, on terms and subject to conditions reasonably satisfactory to Rakuten (the “Financing Condition”). Rakuten expects to fund the Offers with the net proceeds from the Financing Transaction and cash on hand. After the settlement of the Offers, we also intend to make further offers to purchase certain of our Japanese-yen denominated senior bonds scheduled to mature in or after 2024.
