(1) Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes that are accepted for purchase.
(2) Includes the Early Tender Payment.

The “Total Consideration” for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes will be determined based on a modified “Dutch Auction” procedure. Each holder that tenders Notes in the Offer will specify a “Bid Price,” within a range specified in the table above, which represents the minimum consideration such holder is willing to receive for those Notes. Holders who tender Notes without specifying a Bid Price will be deemed to have specified $1,155.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes. The total consideration payable under the Offer, and the Bid Price specified by holders of Notes electing to participate, includes an “Early Tender Payment” of $30.00 for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes. Holders will only be eligible to receive the Early Tender Payment for Notes that such holders have validly tendered (and not withdrawn) prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 19, 2012, unless extended. If the aggregate amount of Notes validly tendered (and not withdrawn) with a Bid Price equal to or below the Total Consideration exceeds the Tender Cap, then holders of Notes who tender Notes with a Bid Price equal to the Total Consideration will be subject to proration as described in the Offer to Purchase (defined below).
