As of the date hereof, there is $55,000,000 aggregate principal amount of Convertible Notes outstanding, which are currently convertible at a conversion rate of 95.23809524 shares of the Company's common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Convertible Notes, or a conversion price of approximately $10.50 per share.
Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Exchange Offer, holders of Convertible Notes who validly tender and do not properly withdraw their Convertible Notes prior to 5:00 pm, New York City time, on the Expiration Date, will receive, for each $1,000 principal amount of Convertible Notes accepted for exchange, $1,260 principal amount of New Notes.

The Exchange Offer is subject to minimum tender conditions and certain other conditions as more fully described in the Prospectus, including the receipt of sufficient consents to amend the terms of the indenture governing the Convertible Notes, the security documents governing the Convertible Notes and the related intercreditor agreement, in order to eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants contained in the indenture governing the Convertible Notes and provide for a release of all of the collateral securing the Convertible Notes. The Company expressly reserves the right to waive these conditions in whole or in part at any or at various times.
