The Additional Notes and related guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any state securities laws. Accordingly, the Additional Notes are being offered and sold only to “qualified institutional buyers” (as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act) and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in offshore transactions in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or solicitation of an offer to purchase with respect to the Additional Notes or other securities, nor shall there be any sale of the Additional Notes in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or purchase would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
