The New Senior Notes have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or under any state securities laws. The New Senior Notes may not be offered or sold within the United States, absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.

The Exchange Offers are extended only to, and the offering memorandum supplement will be sent only to, “Eligible Holders” of Old Notes who complete and return an eligibility form confirming that they are either a “qualified institutional buyer” under Rule 144A or not a “U.S. person” under Regulation S, as defined under applicable securities laws.
