This Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment No. 1”) amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO (together with any subsequent amendments and supplements thereto, the “Schedule TO”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission by Brookfield Property Partners L.P., a Bermuda exempted limited partnership (our “Company”), on July 6, 2020. The Schedule TO relates to the offer by our Company to purchase up to an aggregate amount of US$890 million of its non-voting limited partnership units at a purchase price of US$12.00 per unit, in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated July 6, 2020 (the “Offer to Purchase”), the accompanying Issuer Bid Circular dated July 6, 2020 (the “Circular”), and in the related Letters of Transmittal (the “Letters of Transmittal”) and Notices of Guaranteed Delivery (the “Notices of Guaranteed Delivery,” and together with the Offer to Purchase, the accompanying Circular and Letters of Transmittal, as amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Offer Documents”).
