As of today's date, Simon holds, through the Issuer, 22.4% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company. The net proceeds from the Offering are expected to be used for general corporate purposes, including the repayment of existing facilities (which, without limitation, includes the repayment of debt previously provided by the Bookrunners). The Bonds will have a maturity of three years and will be redeemed at their principal amount at maturity (unless previously redeemed, exchanged or purchased and cancelled). The Bonds will be issued at 100% of their principal amount (being €100,000 per Bond) will pay a fixed coupon rate of 3.50% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrear on 14 May and 14 November of each year, with the first coupon to be paid on 14 May 2024. The initial exchange price of the Bonds used to calculate the exchange property underlying the Bonds will be set later today and will be set at a premium of 20% above the reference share price, being the volume-weighted average price of the Shares on Euronext Paris between the opening and closing of trading today. Upon delivery of an exchange notice by a bondholder, the Issuer may elect to pay a cash alternative amount instead of delivering some or all of the relevant exchange property per Bond. Settlement of the Bonds is expected to occur on or around 14 November 2023 (the "Issue Date"). Application will be made for the Bonds to be admitted to trading on the Open Market segment (Freiverkehr) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange or another internationally recognised, regularly operating, regulated or non-regulated stock exchange or securities market, no later than 90 days after the Issue Date. The Issuer, the Guarantor and the Guarantor's subsidiaries have agreed to a 90-day lock-up in respect of the Shares and relevant related securities after the Issue Date, subject to customary exceptions and waiver by the Joint Global Coordinators. J.P. Morgan is acting as the Sole Structuring Bank, and J.P. Morgan and Barclays are acting as the "Joint Global Coordinators" in the Offering.

It is for information purposes only and is not to be relied upon in substitution for the exercise of independent judgement. It is not intended as investment advice and under no circumstances is it to be used or considered as an offer to sell to, or a solicitation of an offer to buy any security nor is it a recommendation to buy or sell any security. This announcement and the Offering when made are only addressed to, and directed in, member states of the European Economic Area (the "EEA") (each, a "Member State") and the United Kingdom, at persons who are "qualified investors" within the meaning of the Prospectus Regulation ("Qualified Investors") or to and at other persons to whom the offering can otherwise be made pursuant to available exemptions under the Prospectus Regulation. For these purposes, the expression "Prospectus Regulation" means Regulation (EU) 2017/1129, as amended and Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 as it forms part of United Kingdom domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (the "EUWA"). Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on Markets in Financial Instruments, as amended ("MiFID II"); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II; (c) local implementing measures in the EEA; (d) Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of United Kingdom domestic law by virtue of the EUWA ("UK MiFIR"); and (e) the FCA Handbook Product Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook (together, the "Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "Manufacturer" (for the purposes of the Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Securities have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that: (i) the target market for the Securities is (a) in the EEA, eligible counterparties and professional clients only, each as defined in MiFID II and (b) in the United Kingdom, eligible counterparties (as defined in the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook) and professional clients (as defined in UK MiFIR); and (ii) all channels for distribution of the Securities to eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate. Any person subsequently offering, selling or recommending the Securities (a "distributor") should take into consideration the Manufacturers' target market assessment; however, a distributor subject to MiFID II or the Product Governance Requirements is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Securities (by either adopting or refining the Manufacturers' target market assessment) and determining appropriate distribution channels. The target market assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual or legal selling restrictions in relation to any offering of the Securities. For the avoidance of doubt, the target market assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II or UK MiFIR; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the Securities. The Securities are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the EEA or the United Kingdom. For these purposes, a retail investor means (a) in the EEA, a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; or (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/97, where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II and (b) in the United Kingdom, a person who is one (or more) of (i) a retail client, as defined in point (8) of Article 2 of Regulation (EU) no 2017/565 as it forms part of United Kingdom domestic law by virtue of the EUWA or (ii) a customer within the meaning of the provisions of the Financial and Services and Markets Act 2000 (the "FMSA") and any rules or regulations made under the FSMA to implement Directive (EU) 2016/97, where that customer would not qualify as a professional client, as defined in point (8) of Article 2(1) of Regulation (EU) no 600/2014 as it forms part of United Kingdom domestic law by virtue of the EUWA. Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014, as amended (the "PRIIPs Regulation") or the PRIIPs Regulation as it forms part of United Kingdom domestic law by virtue of the EUWA (the "UK PRIIPs Regulation") for offering or selling the Securities or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the EEA or the United Kingdom has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the Securities or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA or the United Kingdom may be unlawful under the PRIIPs Regulation and/or the UK PRIIPs Regulation. In addition, in the United Kingdom, this announcement is being distributed only to, and is directed only at, Qualified Investors who are persons who have professional experience in matters relating to investments falling within Article 19(5) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005, as amended (the "Order") or who are high-net-worth entities and other persons to whom it may otherwise lawfully be communicated, falling within Article 49(2)(a) to (d) of the Order (all such persons together being referred to as "Relevant Persons"). This announcement is directed only at Relevant Persons and must not be acted on or relied on (i) in the United Kingdom, by persons who are not Relevant Persons, and (ii) in a Member State of the EEA, by persons who are not Qualified Investors. Any investment or investment activity to which this announcement relates is available only to (a) Relevant Persons in the United Kingdom and will be engaged in only with Relevant Persons in the United Kingdom and (b) Qualified Investors in Member States of the EEA. Any person in the United Kingdom who is not a Relevant Person should not act or rely on this announcement or any of its contents. This announcement has not been and will not be registered as a prospectus with the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Accordingly, this announcement and any other document or material in connection with the offer or sale, or invitation for subscription or purchase, of the Securities may not be circulated or distributed, nor may the Securities be offered or sold, or be made the subject of an invitation for subscription or purchase, whether directly or indirectly, to any person in Singapore other than (i) to an institutional investor (as defined in Section 4A of the Securities and Futures Act 2001 of Singapore, as modified or amended from time to time (the "SFA")) pursuant to Section 274 of the SFA, or (ii) to an accredited investor (as defined in Section 4A of the SFA) pursuant to and in accordance with the conditions specified in Section 275 of the SFA. Singapore SFA Product Classification: In connection with Section 309B of the SFA and the Securities and Futures (Capital Markets Products) Regulations 2018 of Singapore (the "CMP Regulations 2018"), the Issuer has determined, and hereby notifies all relevant persons (as defined in Section 309A(1) of the SFA), that the Securities are 'prescribed capital markets products' (as defined in the CMP Regulations 2018) and Excluded Investment Products (as defined in MAS Notice SFA 04-N12: Notice on the Sale of Investment Products and MAS Notice FAA-N16: Notice on Recommendations on Investment Products). Any decision to purchase any of the Securities should only be made on the basis of an independent review by a prospective investor of the Issuer's, the Guarantor's and the Company's publicly available information.
