the sum of the present values of the Remaining Scheduled Payments, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date.
|In determining the present value of the Remaining Scheduled Payments, Walmart will discount such payments to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) using a discount rate equal to the Applicable Treasury Rate plus 12.5 basis points.|
|The term Applicable Treasury Rate means with respect to any redemption date, the rate per annum equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue. In determining this rate, Walmart will assume a price for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the Comparable Treasury Price for such redemption date.|
|The term Comparable Treasury Issue means the United States Treasury security selected by an Independent Investment Banker as having a maturity comparable to the remaining term of the Notes to be redeemed that would be utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issue of corporate debt securities of comparable maturity to the remaining term of such Notes.|
|The term Independent Investment Banker means each of Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Goldman, Sachs & Co. or J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and their respective successors as may be appointed from time to time by Walmart; provided, however, that if any of the foregoing shall cease to be a primary U.S. Government securities dealer (a Primary Treasury Dealer), Walmart shall substitute therefor another Primary Treasury Dealer.|

|The term Remaining Scheduled Payments means with respect to any Note, the remaining scheduled payments of the principal thereof to be redeemed and interest thereon that would be due after the related redemption date but for such redemption; provided, however, that, if such redemption date is not an interest payment date with respect to such Note, the amount of the next scheduled interest payment thereon will be reduced by the amount of interest accrued thereon to such redemption date.|
|The Notes will also be redeemable, in whole or in part, at the option of the Company at any time on or after January 22, 2024, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date.|

|Settlement Date:|| |
T + 10; October 22, 2014
It is expected that delivery of the Notes will be made against payment therefor on or about October 22, 2014, which is the tenth business day following the date hereof (such settlement cycle being referred to as T + 10). Under Rule 15c-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in three business days unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade the new Notes on the date of pricing or the next six succeeding business days will be required, by virtue of the fact that the offering of the new Notes will settle in T + 10, to specify an alternative settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent failed settlement. Purchasers of the Notes who wish to trade the new Notes on the date of pricing or the next succeeding business days should consult their own advisors.
