Union Pacific Corporation Announces Pricing Terms of Exchange Offers

Omaha, Neb., June 06, 2011 – Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE:UNP; and "Union Pacific" or the "Corporation") today announced the pricing terms of its private offers to exchange its outstanding notes and debentures referenced in the table below (the "Existing Notes") for a combination of new notes due 2022 (the "New Notes") and cash (the "Exchange Offers"), established as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 6, 2011 (the "Price Determination Date") in accordance with Union Pacific's offering memorandum dated May 23, 2011 (the "Offering Memorandum") and the related letter of transmittal.

The total exchange price to be received in each Exchange Offer (the "Total Exchange Price") for each $1,000 principal amount of Existing Notes validly tendered, not withdrawn prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 6, 2011 (the "Early Exchange Date") and accepted for exchange is set forth in the table below.  The Total Exchange Price, which includes the early exchange premium of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Existing Notes validly tendered, not withdrawn prior to the Early Exchange Date and accepted for exchange, will be paid via the issuance of $875 principal amount of New Notes, with the remaining amount paid in cash.  The Total Exchange Price has been determined using the yields for the Exchange Offers in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Offering Memorandum.  Holders of Existing Notes who validly tender Existing Notes after the Early Exchange Date that are accepted for exchange will receive the Total Exchange Price less the early exchange premium (the "Exchange Price").  The annual interest rate on the New Notes will be 4.163%, which has been determined as the bid-side yield of the designated reference security as of the Price Determination Date, which was 3.013%, plus the applicable spread.

The table below shows the Total Exchange Price and Exchange Price per $1,000 principal amount of each series of Existing Notes accepted in the Exchange Offers.
