Holders of the Notes (the "Holders") may withdraw their validly tendered Notes as described below. Holders are urged to read the Offer Documents carefully before making any decision with respect to the Tender Offer.

The "Tender Offer Consideration" for each $1,000 principal amount of the Notes validly tendered, and not validly withdrawn, and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the fixed spread for the Notes specified above plus the yield based on the bid-side price of the U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified above, as quoted on the Bloomberg Bond Trader FIT3 series of pages, at 2:00 p.m. New York City time, on December 12, 2023, the date on which the Tender Offer is currently scheduled to expire.
In addition to the Tender Offer Consideration, holders of Notes that are validly tendered and accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the settlement date for the Tender Offer, which is currently expected to be December 18, 2023.
As described in the Offer to Purchase, tendered Notes may be validly withdrawn at any time prior to or at, but not after, the Expiration Time, unless J.B. Poindexter amends the Tender Offer, in which case the withdrawal rights may be extended as J.B. Poindexter determines, to the extent required by law. The consummation of the Tender Offer and J.B. Poindexter's obligations to accept for purchase, and to pay for, Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) pursuant to the Tender Offer are subject to the satisfaction of or waiver of the financing condition and the other conditions described in the Offer to Purchase. To the extent that less than all of the outstanding Notes are tendered and accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer, we intend to satisfy and discharge the indenture governing the Notes, in accordance with the provisions thereof, and to redeem at par on April 15, 2024 the Notes that remain outstanding following the consummation of the Tender Offer. Following such satisfaction and discharge, we will no longer be subject to the covenants in the indenture governing the Notes. Statements of intent in this press release shall not constitute a notice of redemption under the indenture governing the Notes. Any such notice, if made, will only be made in accordance with the provisions of the indenture. J.B. Poindexter may amend, extend or, subject to certain conditions and applicable law, terminate the Tender Offer at any time in its sole discretion. However, the Tender Offer is not conditioned on any minimum amount of Notes being tendered.
J.B. Poindexter has appointed J.P. Morgan Securities LLC to act as dealer manager for the Tender Offer and has retained D.F. King & Co., Inc. to serve as the tender agent and information agent.
