Based on such tenders and separate consents delivered, the proposed amendments have been approved. The 2017 Notes that remain outstanding after the consummation of the tender offer and consent solicitation will not have the benefit of certain provisions presently in the indenture governing the 2017 Notes, possibly increasing the investment risks associated with the notes and making them less attractive as an investment.
