(“PPL Capital Funding”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of PPL Corporation (NYSE: PPL), today announced that it has extended the Early Tender Date, the Withdrawal Deadline and the Expiration Date for its previously announced tender offers (collectively, the “Tender Offers” and each a “Tender Offer”) to purchase for cash (1) any and all of its outstanding 4.200% Senior Notes due 2022, 3.500% Senior Notes due 2022, 3.400% Senior Notes due 2023 and 3.950% Senior Notes due 2024 (collectively, the “Any and All Notes”) and (2) up to $1,000,000,000 aggregate purchase price (the “Aggregate Maximum Purchase Price”) of its outstanding 4.700% Senior Notes due 2043, 5.000% Senior Notes due 2044, 4.000% Senior Notes due 2047, 4.125% Senior Notes due 2030 and 3.100% Senior Notes due 2026 (collectively, the “Maximum Tender Offer Notes,” and the Maximum Tender Offer Notes together with the Any and All Notes, the “Securities”).
