The proposed amendments to the Old Notes will, among other things, eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants in the indenture governing the Old Notes, eliminate certain events of default, amend the indenture governing the Old Notes to provide for the termination and replacement of guarantees and make certain conforming changes to the indenture governing the Old Notes to reflect the proposed amendments. The consent solicitation is conditioned upon the receipt of valid consents to the proposed amendments from the holders of at least a majority of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes.
DXC has filed a registration statement on Form S-4 relating to the Exchange Offer (as amended, the “Registration Statement”). The Registration Statement was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on December 19, 2017, and has been declared effective.

The terms of the New Notes to be issued in the Exchange Offer will have an interest rate and maturity date that are identical to the interest rate and maturity date of such tendered Old Notes, as well as identical interest payment dates and optional redemption prices. No accrued but unpaid interest will be paid on the Old Notes in connection with the Exchange Offer.
