The Preferred Shares were issued on October 9, 2003 at $25.00 per share. They paid distributions on a quarterly basis. Following five years of call protection, on October 9, 2008 the Preferred Shares became callable at any time at the Liquidation Preference of $25.00 per share plus accumulated but unpaid dividends.
