The settlement for the Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn on or
before the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase by Kohl's is
expected to take place on April 17, 2018 (the "Initial Settlement
Date"). Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase will receive the
consideration to be calculated at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, today
by Morgan Stanley & Co., LLC, the Lead Dealer Manager, and to be
announced by separate release later today. The principal amount of each
series of Notes that is purchased on the Initial Settlement Date will be
determined in accordance with the acceptance priority levels and the
proration procedures described in the Offer to Purchase, dated April 2,
2018 (the "Offer to Purchase").

The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on
April 27, 2018, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be
extended, the "Expiration Time"). However, as Kohl's intends, subject to
the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer, to accept for purchase the
Maximum Amount of Notes on the Initial Settlement Date, further tenders
of Notes prior to the Expiration Time will only be accepted for purchase
if Kohl's amends the Tender Offer to increase the Maximum Amount above
the principal amount of Notes tendered as of the Early Tender Deadline.
Subject to applicable law, the Tender Offer may be amended, extended,
terminated or withdrawn with respect to one or more series of Notes.

The obligation of Kohl's to accept for purchase, and to pay for, any
Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for
purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer is conditioned upon the
satisfaction or waiver of the conditions described in the Offer to
Purchase under the heading "Terms of the Tender Offer—Conditions of the
Tender Offer."
