Pursuant to the terms of the Offer, the amount of Notes that will be accepted for purchase is subject to the Tender Cap, including the Tender Cap Increase, if applicable.

In addition, holders that validly tender Notes that are accepted for purchase by the Company will receive accrued and unpaid interest from, and including, the last interest payment date for their tendered Notes to, but not including, the settlement date for such Notes, in each case rounded to the nearest cent.
