Holders of approximately 98.13% of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes had tendered such Notes and delivered consents in respect of such Notes to amend the indenture governing the Notes (the "Indenture"), as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on May 26, 2015 (the "Consent Expiration").

As a result, Horizon, the trustee and the collateral agent executed a supplemental indenture, which amended the Indenture to eliminate certain covenants and certain related provisions contained in the Indenture, and to provide for the release of the liens on the collateral that secured Horizon's obligations with respect to the Notes, on May 26, 2015.  The supplemental indenture became operative on May 29, 2015, upon Matson's acceptance and payment for all Notes tendered prior to the Consent Expiration.

Notes representing an additional $6,972 in aggregate principal amount were tendered in the Offer between the Consent Expiration and the Expiration Time.  Matson Navigation Company will pay $1,040 per $1,000 in principal amount of these additional Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest today.  Together with the Notes tendered prior to the Consent Expiration, $1,960,659 aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes were tendered and accepted for payment in the Offer.

RBC Capital Markets, LLC served as dealer manager and solicitation agent and Ipreo served as information agent for the Offer.
