The tender offers are scheduled to expire at 11:59 P.M., New York City time, on January 4, 2013, unless extended or earlier terminated (the "Expiration Time").  Holders who validly tender their Notes and deliver their consents by 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on December 19, 2012, unless extended or earlier terminated (the "Consent Payment Deadline"), will receive the Total Consideration defined above if such Notes are accepted for purchase, which includes a payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes (the "Consent Payment").  Holders who validly tender their Notes and deliver their consents after the Consent Payment Deadline but before the Expiration Time will receive the Tender Offer Consideration defined above, if such Notes are accepted for purchase.  Holders whose tendered Notes are accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest from the last applicable interest payment date to, but not including, the Initial Settlement Date (as defined below) or the Final Settlement Date (as defined below), as the case may be, for the Notes purchased in the tender offers.

Holders who validly tender their Notes and deliver their consents by the Consent Payment Deadline (and do not validly withdraw their Notes or revoke their consents) and whose Notes are accepted for purchase, will, if the Company so elects, receive their applicable Total Consideration on a business day following the Consent Payment Deadline and the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to the consummation of the tender offers, which date is expected to be December 20, 2012 (the "Initial Settlement Date").  Holders who validly tender their Notes and deliver their consents after the Consent Payment Deadline but by the Expiration Time, and whose Notes are accepted for purchase, will receive their applicable Tender Offer Consideration promptly after the Expiration Time, which date is expected to be January 7, 2013 (the "Final Settlement Date").  The consents are being solicited to eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants, certain related events of default and certain other provisions contained in the indentures governing the Notes. Holders may not tender their Notes without delivering consents or deliver consents without tendering their Notes.

The Company expects to use the net proceeds of the senior unsecured notes offering and new senior secured credit facility, together with cash on hand, to pay the Total Consideration.  The tender offers are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, including the consummation of these financing transactions and general conditions.

Noteholders may withdraw tenders and revoke consents at any time prior to the earlier of (1) 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 19, 2012 (which may be extended by the Company in its sole discretion) and (2) the date on which a supplemental indenture applicable to their series of Notes is executed (the "Effective Time"), which is expected to promptly follow receipt of the consents of a majority of the Notes outstanding of any applicable class voting together under an indenture.
