Pioneer Announces 5.875% Interest Rate on New Notes and Determination of Exchange Price Relating to Debt Exchange Offers

DALLAS, Jul 7, 2022 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Pioneer Natural Resources Company ("Pioneer") (NYSE:PXD) today announced that it has established the interest rate for a new series of Senior Notes due 2016 (the "New Notes") to be issued in connection with its previously announced offers to exchange (the "Exchange Offers") any or all of three series of its outstanding senior notes (the "Old Notes") for the New Notes and cash. The New Notes will mature on July 15, 2022 and will bear interest from the final settlement date (expected to be Thursday, July 15, 2004) at a rate per annum equal to 5.875%. The interest rate was set based on (a) the yield on the 4.75% U.S. Treasury Note due May 15, 2014 as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 7, 2004, plus (b) 1.40%. The New Notes will be unsecured senior obligations of Pioneer and will rank equally with all of Pioneer's other unsecured senior indebtedness.

In addition, Pioneer has established the exchange price for each $1,000 principal amount of each series of Old Notes for which Pioneer is making the Exchange Offers. The exchange price is as follows:

               Series                  Cusip Number     Exchange price
------------------------------------   ------------     --------------
8 1/4% Senior Notes due 2007            701018 AB 9         $1,139.88
