OREANDA-NEWS. September 27, 2016. Hess Corporation (NYSE:HES) announced today that the previously announced cash tender offer (the Any and All Tender Offer) for any and all of its outstanding 8.125% Notes due February 15, 2019 (the Any and All Notes) (CUSIP No. 42809HAB3) expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 23, 2016. According to information provided by Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the information agent and the depositary for the Any and All Tender Offer, \\$653,191,000 aggregate principal amount of the Any and All Notes were validly tendered prior to or at the expiration of the Any and All Tender Offer and not validly withdrawn. This amount includes \\$3,150,000 aggregate principal amount of the Any and All Notes tendered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures described in the Offer to Purchase, dated September 19, 2016 (the Offer to Purchase), and the related notice of guaranteed delivery provided in connection with the Any and All Tender Offer, which remain subject to the holders performance of the delivery requirements under such procedures. The obligation of Hess to accept any Any and All Notes tendered and to pay the consideration for the Any and All Notes is subject to satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions and other terms set forth solely in the Offer to Purchase. If the conditions are met, Hess expects to pay for such Any and All Notes on September 28, 2016.

Holders of Any and All Notes that validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Any and All Notes prior to the expiration of the Any and All Tender Offer will receive total consideration of \\$1,154.64 for each \\$1,000 principal amount of Any and All Notes tendered and accepted for payment, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, September 28, 2016, the expected settlement date of the Any and All Tender Offer.

Hess plans to fund the purchase of the Any and All Notes with part of the proceeds from the sale of its 4.30% Notes due 2027 and its 5.80% Notes due 2047, which is expected to be completed on September 28, 2016.

In addition to the Any and All Tender Offer, Hess previously announced its pending tender offers (together with the Any and All Tender Offer, the Tender Offers) to purchase for cash up to an aggregate maximum repurchase amount of certain other securities (the Maximum Tender Offer Notes and, together with the Any and All Notes, the Notes) equal to the lesser of (i) \\$375 million and (ii) \\$1.075 billion less the aggregate total consideration for the Any and All Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase in the Any and All Tender Offer. Because the total consideration expected to be paid for such Any and All Notes is approximately \\$754.2 million (including \\$3.6 million for Any and All Notes subject to guarantees of delivery), the aggregate maximum repurchase amount of the Maximum Tender Offer Notes is expected to be approximately \\$320.8 million, unless increased by Hess. Holders of Notes are urged to read carefully the Offer to Purchase before making any decision with respect to the Tender Offers.
