According to information received from Global Bondholder Services Corporation ("GBSC"), the depositary and information agent for the Tender Offers, as of midnight, New York City time, on July 3, 2019 (the "Expiration Date"), Vistra Energy had received valid tenders from holders of the Existing Notes that were not validly withdrawn as set forth in the table below.

(1) Per $1,000 principal amount of Existing Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase by Vistra Energy.

Because the aggregate principal amount of the 2024 Notes tendered at or prior to the Expiration Date (including those accepted for purchase as of the Early Tender Date) resulted in a 2024 Notes Maximum Tender Amount (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) that was less than $760,000,000, the 2024 Notes that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn after the Early Tender Date but at or prior to the Expiration Date were accepted for purchase without proration (the "Additional Tendered Notes").

The Additional Tendered Notes were purchased on July 5, 2019.

Vistra Energy has called for redemption of all of the 2022 Notes that remain outstanding after the Tender Offers and an aggregate principal amount of $87,171,000 (subject to confirmation by GBSC) of 2024 Notes. We expect that the redemptions will occur on July 8, 2019 (the "Redemption Date") at the then-applicable redemption price of 103.688% of the principal amount of Notes redeemed (excluding accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to but excluding the Redemption Date) for the 2022 Notes and at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of Notes redeemed, plus the Applicable Premium (as defined in the indenture governing the 2024 Notes) as of the Redemption Date, and accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to but excluding the Redemption Date for the 2024 Notes.

Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC acted as the Lead Dealer Manager for the Tender Offers, and GBSC served as the Depositary and Information Agent for the Tender Offers.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities issued in connection with any notes offering, nor shall there be any sale of the securities issued in such an offering in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. Offers of any such securities will be made in the United States only by means of a private offering memorandum pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.
