LONDON, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aon plc (the "Company") (NYSE: AON) announced today the pricing terms of its offer to exchange Aon Corporation's outstanding debentures as set forth in the table below (the "Old Notes") for the Company's new Senior Notes due December 12, 2042 (Guaranteed by Aon Corporation)  (the "New Notes") and cash (the "Exchange Offer"), determined as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 6, 2012 (the "Price Determination Date") in accordance with the terms set out in the Company's confidential offering memorandum dated November 13, 2012, as amended by the Company's press releases dated November 28, 2012 and December 3, 2012 (as amended, the "Confidential Offering Memorandum"), and the related letter of transmittal.  The Company also announced that as of the Early Participation Date, which was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 5, 2012, the Company had received tenders from the holders of approximately $165,946,000 aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes.

The interest rate on the New Notes will be 4.250%.  The yield on the New Notes will be 4.291% and the "New Notes Value" of the New Notes will be $993.12, which has been determined by reference to the bid-side yield of the 2.75% U.S. Treasury due August 15, 2042 as of the Price Determination Date, which was 2.741%.

The total exchange price to be received in the Exchange Offer (the "Total Exchange Price") for each $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes validly tendered, and not validly withdrawn, prior to the Early Participation Date is set forth in the table below.  The Total Exchange Price includes the early exchange premium of $50.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes (the "Early Exchange Premium") validly tendered, and not validly withdrawn, prior to the Early Participation Date.  The Total Exchange Price has been determined in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Confidential Offering Memorandum.  Holders of Old Notes who validly tender Old Notes after the Early Participation Date and whose Old Notes are accepted in the Exchange Offer will receive the Total Exchange Price less the Early Exchange Premium (the "Exchange Price").

The table below shows the Total Exchange Price and Exchange Price per $1,000 principal amount of Old Notes accepted in the Exchange Offer.
