The Tender Offer is being made upon the terms and conditions in the Offer to Purchase and related Letter of Transmittal dated November 6, 2013. The Tender Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on November 14, 2013, unless extended or terminated as described in the Offer to Purchase (such time and date, as they may be extended, the “Expiration Time”). Holders of the Notes are urged to carefully read the Offer to Purchase and related Letter of Transmittal before making any decision with respect to the Tender Offer.
