Background

The Issuer has convened the Adjourned Meetings for the purpose of enabling the holders of Notes of each Series to consider and resolve, if they think fit, to pass the Extraordinary Resolution proposed in relation to the Notes of the relevant Series.

On 11 June 2020, Unilever announced plans to unify its Group legal structure under a single parent company, PLC, creating a simpler company, with greater strategic flexibility, that is better positioned for future success.

It is proposed that Unification will be implemented through the Cross-Border Merger, as a result of which PLC will become the single parent company of the Unilever Group.

Prior to the implementation of Unification, New Bond Sub will be incorporated pursuant to the NV Demerger, which will become effective shortly before the Cross-Border Merger becomes effective. New Bond Sub will be a finance company established for the purpose of raising debt for the Unilever Group and will conduct no business operations and will have no subsidiaries of its own. As part of the NV Demerger, the NV Notes will become obligations of New Bond Sub.

In conjunction with Unification, Unilever intends to seek approval from the relevant Noteholders of the proposed amendments set out in this Notice of Adjourned Meetings (the "Proposed Amendments"). Unilever is seeking approval by the Noteholders of (i) the substitution of New Bond Sub in place of NV as issuer of the Notes, with the existing guarantees from PLC and UNUS remaining in force, (ii) such other consequential amendments to the relevant Conditions as set out in this Notice of Adjourned Meetings and in the Notice of Original Meetings in order to facilitate such substitution, and (iii) the waiver of any event of default that has arisen or would otherwise arise in respect of the relevant Notes as a result of or in connection with any or all of the NV Demerger, the Unification, the Cross-Border Merger or the Issuer Substitution.

The Issuer Substitution will be effected pursuant to the NV Demerger and, to the extent not effected pursuant to the NV Demerger, pursuant to the applicable Supplemental Trust Deed. The other Proposed Amendments will be implemented pursuant to Supplemental Trust Deeds, the forms of which are set out in Schedules I, II and III to the Notice of Original Meetings, subject to satisfaction of the conditions listed in paragraph 7 of the relevant Extraordinary Resolution set out above, which include the occurrence of the NV Demerger Effective Date.

The implementation of the waivers referred to paragraph 1 of the relevant Extraordinary Resolution set out above is subject only to the passing of the relevant Extraordinary Resolution set out above. The form of the waiver letter pursuant to which such waivers will be implemented is set out in Schedule IV to the Notice of Original Meetings.

Following Unification, the Unilever Group will produce a set of consolidated accounts for PLC and its subsidiaries (the "Consolidated Accounts"). Each of PLC and New Bond Sub will produce standalone entity financial statements (the "Entity Accounts"), which are not consolidated accounts. The Entity Accounts together with the Consolidated Accounts are referred to as the "Accounts".

It is intended that new debt issued pursuant to Unilever's European debt issuance programme will have (i) New Bond Sub or PLC as issuer and (ii) the benefit of guarantees by PLC and UNUS (in the case of new debt issued by New Bond Sub) or by UNUS only (in the case of new debt issued by PLC). For the avoidance of doubt, Unilever Capital Corporation will remain issuer in respect of notes currently outstanding from Unilever's SEC-registered shelf.

Consent Solicitations

The Issuer has invited eligible holders of the Notes of each Series (each such invitation a "Consent Solicitation") to consent to the approval, by Extraordinary Resolution at the relevant Adjourned Meeting, of the modification of the Conditions relating to the relevant Series and certain other matters as described in paragraph 1 of the relevant Extraordinary Resolution as set out above, all as further described in the Consent Solicitation Memorandum (as defined in paragraph 8 of the Extraordinary Resolutions set out above).

Noteholders may obtain a copy of the Consent Solicitation Memorandum from the Tabulation Agent, the contact details for which are set out below. In order to receive a copy of the Consent Solicitation Memorandum, a Noteholder will be required to provide confirmation as to his or her status as a Noteholder.

General

Copies of (i) the relevant Trust Deed (as amended, restated and/or supplemented as at the issue date of each Series of Notes); and (ii) the current draft of the supplemental trust deeds, supplemental agency agreements and the waiver letter as referred to in each Extraordinary Resolution set out above are also available for inspection by Noteholders (a) on and from the date of this Notice of Adjourned Meetings up to and including the date of the Adjourned Meetings, at the specified offices of the Tabulation Agent during normal business hours on any week day (Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays excepted) up to and including the date of the Adjourned Meetings and (b) at the Adjourned Meetings and via videoconference for 15 minutes before the Adjourned Meetings. Any revised version of the relevant draft supplemental trust deed, the relevant supplemental agency agreement and the waiver letter will be made available as described above and marked to indicate changes to the draft made available on the date of this Notice of Adjourned Meetings, and will supersede the previous draft of the relevant document and Noteholders will be deemed to have notice of any such changes.
