Calpine Corporation intends to use the proceeds from this offering, together with cash on hand and proceeds from a new $1,000,000,000 first lien term loan facility maturing in January 2025 that Calpine Construction Finance Company, L.P., an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Calpine Corporation, intends to enter into concurrently with the closing of this offering, to (i) repay approximately $1.6 billion of borrowings outstanding under Calpine Construction Finance Company, L.P.’s first lien term loan facility with tranches maturing in 2020 and 2022, terminating the facility in connection therewith and (ii) pay fees and expenses in connection with this offering, the new first lien term loan facility and such repayments and termination.

The notes will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and may not be offered or sold in the U.S. without registration under the Securities Act or pursuant to an applicable exemption from such registration.
