(1)   The hypothetical Total Consideration (per $1,000 principal amount) for Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Expiration Date (as defined below) and accepted for purchase is calculated using the fixed spread for each series of Notes set forth in the table above.

The tender offers consist of six separate offers to purchase any and all of each series of Notes listed in the table above (each a “Tender Offer”, and collectively, the “Tender Offers”) on the terms set forth in the offer to purchase, the related letter of transmittal and, to the extent applicable, the related notice of guaranteed delivery, each dated October 16, 2017 (as they may be amended or supplemented, the “Offer Documents”). Target refers investors to the Offer Documents for the complete terms of the Tender Offers. See “Information Relating to the Tender Offers” below for instructions on obtaining copies of the Offer Documents.

The Tender Offers will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 20, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated (such time and date, as it may be extended with respect to a series, the “Expiration Date”). Holders of Notes must validly tender and not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to the Expiration Date to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration.

Notes may be validly withdrawn at any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 20, 2017, unless such date and time is extended or earlier terminated by Target with respect to a series, but not thereafter.

The “Total Consideration” for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers will be determined in the manner described in the Offer Documents by reference to a fixed spread specified for each series plus the yield based on the bid-side price of the U.S. Treasury Security specified in the tables on the first page at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 20, 2017, in each case unless extended or earlier terminated. The payment date for the Notes tendered by the Expiration Date is anticipated to be October 23, 2017, one business day after the Expiration Date. Holders will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, this initial payment date when Target would make payment in same-day funds. The payment date for the Notes tendered by guaranteed delivery (as further described in the Offer Documents) is anticipated to be October 25, 2017, two business days after the initial payment date for Notes. Interest will cease to accrue on October 23, 2017 for all Notes accepted in the Tender Offers, including those tendered by guaranteed delivery, and holders tendering by guaranteed delivery will not receive interest for any portion of such two business day-period even if delivering the Notes before the end of such two business day-period.

Only registered holders of Notes are entitled to tender Notes pursuant to the Tender Offers. A beneficial owner of Notes that are held of record by a custodian bank, broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee must contact the nominee and request that such nominee tender such Notes on the beneficial owner’s behalf prior to the Expiration Date in order to receive the Total Consideration for the Notes.

The Tender Offers are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, as specified in the Offer Documents.
