The Additional Notes have identical terms, other than the issue date, issue price and, with regard to Additional Notes sold in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), CUSIP number as the Initial Notes. Like the Initial Notes, the Additional Notes are guaranteed by substantially all of CONSOL's wholly-owned domestic restricted subsidiaries.

CONSOL intends to use the net proceeds of the sale of the Additional Notes to purchase up to $200 million principal amount of its 8.25% senior notes due 2020 pursuant to its previously announced modified "Dutch Auction" cash tender offer, which was commenced on July 29, 2014. CONSOL intends to use any remaining proceeds for general corporate purposes.

The Additional Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and the rules promulgated thereunder and applicable state securities laws. The Additional Notes were offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act and non-U.S. persons in transactions outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act.

CONSOL is a Pittsburgh-based producer of natural gas and coal. CONSOL is one of the largest independent natural gas exploration, development and production companies, with operations centered in the major shale formations of the Appalachian basin.
