Holders of Old Bonds held through DTC which have been validly tendered and accepted pursuant to the Tender Offer, must deliver their accepted Old Bonds to any of the Dealer Managers no later than 3:00 p.m., New York time, on the Settlement Date.  Holders of Old Bonds held through Euroclear or Clearstream which have been validly tendered and accepted pursuant to the Tender Offer, can use to deliver their Old Bonds to the Billing and Delivering Bank, at the latest, the overnight process, one day prior to the Settlement Date and not the optional daylight process. The Settlement Date is expected to occur on Tuesday, June 17, 2014, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase. 

Failure to deliver Old Bonds on time by any holders may result (i) in the cancellation of Tender Order and such holders becoming liable for any damages resulting from that failure, and (ii) in the case of Preferred Tenders, cancellation of any allocation of New Bonds in the New Bonds Offering in respect of such holders' related Indication of Interest.

All Old Bonds that are tendered pursuant to Tender Orders placed through a Dealer Manager and accepted will be purchased by the Billing and Delivering Bank.  Only the Billing and Delivering Bank will be liable for the payment of the Purchase Price and Accrued Interest for Old Bonds validly tendered and accepted.  Uruguay will not be liable under any circumstances for the payment of the Purchase Price and Accrued Interest for any Old Bonds tendered in the Tender Offer by any holder.  The Billing and Delivering Bank will not be liable for payments to any holder of Old Bonds validly tendered and accepted for purchase if such holder fails to deliver such Old Bonds on or prior to the settlement of the Tender Offer as described in the Offer to Purchase.

Uruguay has agreed to apply a portion of the net proceeds of its new bonds offering announced yesterday, Tuesday, June 10, 2014 (the "New Bonds Offering") to purchase the Old Bonds from the Billing and Delivering Bank at the Purchase Price plus Accrued Interest after completion of the Tender Offer.  Accordingly, the Tender Offer is conditioned upon the pricing of the New Bonds Offering, including in an amount, with pricing and on terms and conditions acceptable to Uruguay, upon the underwriting agreement for the New Bonds Offering and the Dealer Manager Agreement relating to the Tender Offer not having been terminated prior to or at the time of the settlement of the Tender Offer. The Tender Offer is not contingent upon the closing of the New Bonds Offering.
