Such amendment to the prospectus supplement was filed today with the SEC and can be accessed on the SEC’s website at: https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/312070/000119312522219623/d354912d424b5.htm.
All of the terms and conditions of the rescission offer that were not expressly amended by the amendment to the prospectus supplement remain unchanged.
This announcement contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Section 27A of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, with respect to BBPLC. BBPLC cautions readers that no forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance and that actual results or other financial condition or performance measures could differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements.
