(a)

Per $1,000 principal amount.

(b)

The Total Consideration for Notes validly tendered prior to or at the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase is calculated using the applicable Fixed Spread (as defined below) and is inclusive of the Early Tender Payment (as defined below).

 

In addition to the applicable total consideration specified in the table above (the “Total Consideration”) for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for payment, Masco will pay accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, June 27, 2017, the expected settlement date, for the Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date in the Tender Offers. The applicable Total Consideration was calculated in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the applicable fixed spread for such Note (the “Fixed Spread”) specified in the table above plus the applicable yield to maturity based on the bid-side price of the applicable U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified in the table above at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on June 26, 2017. The Total Consideration also includes the applicable early tender payment for each $1,000 principal amount of such Note specified in the table above (the “Early Tender Payment”).

The Tender Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 11, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated. Because the Tender Offers have been fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Date, holders who tendered Notes after the Early Tender Date will not have any of their Notes accepted for purchase. Any Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date, together with any Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date but not accepted for purchase by Masco, including Notes not accepted because of proration, will be returned to the holders thereof as described in the Offer to Purchase.

The withdrawal deadline for the Tender Offers was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 23, 2017 (the “Withdrawal Deadline”) and has not been extended. Accordingly, previously tendered Notes and Notes tendered after the Withdrawal Deadline may not be withdrawn, subject to applicable law.

Masco will fund the Tender Offers with the proceeds from the sale of its 3.500% Notes due 2027 and its 4.500% Notes due 2047, which was completed on June 21, 2017, and with cash on hand.
