Except for the extension of the expiration date and the elimination of the early settlement feature as described above, all terms and conditions of the tender offer set forth in the Offer to Purchase remain unchanged.
Holders who previously have tendered their Notes do not need to re-tender their Notes or take any other action in response to this extension.
