NEW YORK, July 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- National Life Insurance Company ("National Life") today announced the expiration

of and the results for its previously announced offer to exchange (the "Exchange Offer") any and all of National Life's outstanding 10.50% Surplus Notes due 2039 (the "Existing Notes") held by Eligible Holders (as defined below).  The Existing Notes
are being exchanged for 5.25% Fixed-to-Floating Rate Surplus Notes due 2068 (the "New 2068 Surplus Notes"). The New 2068 Surplus Notes being offered in the Exchange Offer are expected to constitute a further issuance of, and will form a single series with, the previously announced 5.25% Fixed-to-Floating Rate Surplus Notes due 2068 which National Life expects to issue for cash on July 19, 2018 in the aggregate principal amount of $350,000,000 (the "Original 2068 Surplus Notes").

As of the previously announced Expiration Time of 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on July 17, 2018 (the "Expiration Time"), according to information provided by D.F. King & Co., Inc., the Information and Exchange Agent for the Exchange Offer, $12,790,000 aggregate principal amount (or approximately 6.4% of the outstanding principal amount) of the Existing Notes were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Exchange Offer at or prior to the Expiration Time. Subject to satisfaction or waiver of the other conditions set forth in the Exchange Offer Materials (as defined below), settlement of the Exchange Offer is expected to occur on July 19, 2018 (the "Settlement Date").

Holders of Existing Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) in the Exchange Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the Settlement Date in cash on all such Existing Notes validly tendered and accepted for exchange pursuant to the Exchange Offer.

National Life expects to accept for exchange all Existing Notes that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Exchange Offer.

The Exchange Offer was made solely to Eligible Holders upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the confidential offering memorandum, as amended (the "Offering Memorandum"), and the related letter of transmittal (the "Letter of Transmittal") and notice of guaranteed delivery (the "Notice of Guaranteed Delivery" and, together with the Offering Memorandum and Letter of Transmittal, the "Exchange Offer Materials"), each dated July 10, 2018.

The Exchange Offer was made only (a) in the United States, to holders of Existing Notes who are "qualified institutional buyers," as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and (b) outside the United States, to holders of Existing Notes who are not "U.S. persons," as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act.  We refer to the holders of Existing Notes who have certified that they are eligible to participate in the Exchange Offer pursuant to at least one of the foregoing conditions as "Eligible Holders."

This press release is for informational purposes only and is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell any securities.  The Exchange Offer was made and the New 2068 Surplus Notes were offered only to holders who have certified that they are eligible to participate in the Exchange Offer as either "qualified institutional buyers" or holders that are not "U.S. persons" as such terms are defined under the Securities Act.  The New 2068 Surplus Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or under any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, and, accordingly, are subject to significant restrictions on transfer and resale as more fully described in the Exchange Offer Materials.  The Exchange Offer is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Exchange Offer Materials.
