(the "Notes") (CUSIP No. 315292AJ1), of which $300,000,000 in aggregate principal amount was outstanding as of October 21, 2013. The Company is also soliciting consents ("Consents") from the registered holders of the Notes to certain proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Notes, including the elimination of substantially all of the restrictive covenants, certain events of default and certain other provisions. The tender offer and consent solicitation are described in detail in an Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated today (the "Statement").
