(1) Each GDN represents one Bono Soberano of S/1,000 in principal amount.  The Purchase Prices of Existing GDNs reflect fees associated with

the cancellation of the Existing GDNs payable to Citibank, N.A., as the depositary. The Exchange Consideration for the Existing GDNs will

not reflect such fees.

 

The Exchange Consideration for each series of Existing Bonds was determined by dividing the Purchase Price for the applicable series of Existing Bonos Soberanos by the issue price of the New Bonos Soberanos being concurrently offered for cash, which was 99.7631%.

Peru is making the Offers only in those jurisdictions where it is legal to do so. The Offers are void in all jurisdictions where such Offers are prohibited. If materials relating to the Offers come into your possession, you are required by Peru to inform yourself of and to observe all of these restrictions.

Accordingly, the Offers will only be directed, and copies of the offering documents will only be made available, to a holder of the Existing Bonds who has certified its status as (1) a “qualified institutional buyer” in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act or (2) outside of the United States of America non-U.S persons in offshore transactions in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act.
