The securities were offered to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A and to certain persons in offshore transactions pursuant to Regulation S, each under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Company expects to close the offering on or about February 16, 2017, subject to customary closing conditions.
