The maximum aggregate principal amount to be purchased by the Company in these Offers is $250,000,000.

Holders who validly tender and do not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to the applicable Expiration Time that are accepted for purchase by Zions will be eligible to receive the applicable Purchase Price set forth in the table above for such Series (each, a "Purchase Price"), plus accrued and unpaid stated interest from the most recent interest payment date on the Notes up to, but not including, the applicable settlement date ("Accrued Interest"). The settlement date for each Offer will be promptly following the Expiration Time for such Offer and is expected to be one business day following the applicable Expiration Time.  Assuming the Offers are not extended, the Company expects that the settlement date for each Offer will be December 6, 2013.

Notes tendered pursuant to the Offers may be validly withdrawn at any time on or prior to the applicable Expiration Time by following the procedures described in the Offer to Purchase (as defined below).

The terms and conditions of the Offers are described in the Offer to Purchase, dated November 6, 2013, and the accompanying Letter of Transmittal, dated November 6, 2013, (the "Offer Materials"). The Offers are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions specified in the Offer Materials.

The Offer Materials are being sent to holders of the Notes. Holders are urged to read the Offer Materials carefully before making any decision with respect to the Offers.
