A confidential offering memorandum will be made available to such eligible holders. The offering will be conducted in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the offering memorandum.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes, nor shall there be any sales of Notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
