[(1) Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase in the Offers (exclusive of any accrued and unpaid interest, which will be paid in addition to the Purchase Price, from, and including, the last interest payment date for the relevant Series of Notes up to, but excluding, the Settlement Date (as defined below) ("Accrued Interest")).]
[(2) The amounts exclude the principal amounts of Notes for which holders have complied with certain procedures applicable to guaranteed delivery pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures (as defined in the Offer to Purchase). Such amounts remain subject to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures. Notes tendered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures are required to be tendered at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 22, 2022.]
Overall, $1,083,371,000 principal amount of Notes have been tendered and accepted for purchase for an aggregate Purchase Price of approximately $1.137 billion, which includes applicable premium and excludes Accrued Interest. The amounts in the foregoing sentence also exclude Notes delivered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures (as defined in the Offer to Purchase).
Settlement for Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Expiration Time is expected to occur on March 21, 2022, the first business day following the Expiration Time (the "Settlement Date"). Settlement for Notes delivered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offers is expected to occur on March 23, 2022, the third business day following the Expiration Time (the "Guaranteed Delivery Settlement Date").
In addition to the Purchase Price, all Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offers, will, on the Settlement Date or the Guaranteed Delivery Settlement Date, as applicable, also receive Accrued Interest in respect of such Notes. For the avoidance of doubt, Accrued Interest will cease to accrue on the Settlement Date for all Notes accepted in the Offers and holders of the Notes whose Notes are tendered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures described in the Offer Documents and are accepted for purchase will not receive payment in respect of any interest for the period from and including the Settlement Date.
Apache's obligation to accept Notes tendered in each Offer was subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, including the Maximum Purchase Condition (as defined in the Offer to Purchase).
The Maximum Purchase Condition has been satisfied with respect to all Offers. Accordingly, all Notes of the Series indicated in the table above validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Expiration Time have been accepted for purchase.
All other conditions described in the Offer to Purchase that were to be satisfied or waived on or prior to the Expiration Time have been satisfied.

This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "seeks," "believes," "continues," "could," "estimates," "expects," "guidance," "may," "might," "outlook," "possibly," "potential," "projects," "prospects," "should," "will," "would," and similar references to future periods, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. These statements include, but are not limited to, statements about future plans, expectations, and objectives for Apache's operations, including statements about our capital plans, drilling plans, production expectations, asset sales, and monetizations. While forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and analyses made by us that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, whether actual results and developments will meet our expectations and predictions depend on a number of risks and uncertainties which could cause our actual results, performance, and financial condition to differ materially from our expectations. All of the forward-looking statements are qualified in their entirety by reference to the factors discussed under "TERMS OF THE OFFERS--Certain Significant Consequences to Holders" in the Offer to Purchase and under "Forward-Looking Statements and Risk" and "Risk Factors" in Apache's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 (which is incorporated by reference in the Offer to Purchase) and similar sections in any subsequent filings, which describe risks and factors that could cause results to differ materially from those projected in those forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement made by Apache in this release speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. Apache undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future development or otherwise, except as may be required by law.
