However, the completion of this offering is not contingent upon the completion of the Veoneer Acquisition. In the event that (x) the Veoneer Acquisition is not consummated on or prior to December 19, 2023 or such later date as the parties to the agreement (the “Equity Purchase Agreement”) governing the Veoneer Acquisition may agree as the “End Date” thereunder (the “End Date”) or (y) the Equity Purchase Agreement is terminated, Magna will be required to redeem all of the notes then outstanding at a redemption price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the notes plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date.

Magna intends to use the net proceeds from the Euro senior notes for general corporate purposes, which may include the repayment of its existing indebtedness.

The offering of U.S. dollar senior notes is expected to close on March 21, 2023 and the offering of Euro senior notes is expected to close on March 17, 2023, in each case, subject to customary closing conditions. The U.S. dollar senior notes and Euro senior notes will be offered pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and a short form base shelf prospectus and prospectus supplements filed with the Ontario Securities Commission.
