In connection with the Tender Offer, Sunoco also announced the results as of the Early Tender Deadline of its previously announced solicitation of consents (the "Consents") from holders of the Notes (the "Consent Solicitation") to the proposed amendments to the indenture, dated as of January 23, 2018 (as supplemented prior to the date hereof, the "Indenture"), which governs the Notes, providing for the shortening of the minimum notice periods under the Indenture for the optional redemption of the Notes by Sunoco (the "Proposed Amendments").

The terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation are described in an Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated October 5, 2021 (the "Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement").

The aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline (the "Early Tender Notes"), as well as the percent of the aggregate principal amount of Notes outstanding constituting Early Tender Notes, is set forth in the columns entitled "Aggregate Principal Amount of Early Tender Notes" and "Percent of Outstanding Principal Amount Tendered," respectively, in the table below. The consideration being offered for any such Early Tender Notes accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation is also set forth in the table below:

(1)   Per $1,000 principal amount of Early Tender Notes tendered and accepted for purchase.

(2)   Included in the Total Consideration for Early Tender Notes tendered and accepted for purchase.

(3)   Does not include accrued and unpaid interest that will be paid on the Early Tender Notes accepted for purchase.

(4)   Tender Offer Consideration for Notes tendered and accepted for purchase after the Early Tender Deadline.

(5)   Total Consideration for Notes tendered and accepted for purchase at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline.

The Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation will expire at Midnight, New York City time, at the end of November 2, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated by Sunoco (the "Expiration Date"). No tenders submitted after the Expiration Date will be valid. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation, holders of the Early Tender Notes will receive the Total Consideration set forth in the table above, which includes the Early Tender Payment set forth in the table above. Holders of Notes tendering their Notes after the Early Tender Deadline and prior to the Expiration Date will only be eligible to receive the Tender Offer Consideration set forth in the table above, which is the Total Consideration less the Early Tender Payment.

Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of all remaining conditions to the Tender Offer described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, Sunoco intends to accept for purchase all of the Early Tender Notes. The Early Settlement Date (as defined in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement) for the Early Tender Notes is expected to be on October 20, 2021. Any Notes validly tendered and related consents validly delivered after the Early Tender Deadline may not be withdrawn or revoked, except as required by law. Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation, Sunoco expects to accept for purchase any remaining Notes that have been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn after the Early Tender Deadline and at or prior to the Expiration Date promptly following the Expiration Date on the Final Settlement Date (as defined in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement), which is expected to occur two business days following the Expiration Date, or as promptly as practicable thereafter.

In addition, holders of all Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes from the last interest payment date with respect to such Notes to, but excluding, the Early Settlement Date or the Final Settlement Date, as applicable.

In addition, because Sunoco received Consents in respect of a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding (excluding Notes held by Sunoco or its affiliates) (the "Requisite Consents") as of the Early Tender Deadline, Sunoco expects to execute and deliver a supplemental indenture to the Indenture giving effect to the Proposed Amendments promptly after accepting for purchase the Early Tender Notes on the Early Settlement Date. The Proposed Amendments are expected to become operative on the Early Settlement Date, after which Sunoco intends to issue a notice of redemption to redeem all of the Notes not purchased pursuant to the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation on the Early Settlement Date.

No offer, solicitation, or sale will be made in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful. This press release shall not constitute a notice of redemption under the Indenture or an obligation to issue a notice of redemption.
