Note: A securities rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold securities and may be subject to revision or withdrawal at any time.


Note: We expect that delivery of the Senior Notes will be made against payment therefor on the third business day following the date hereof (such settlement cycle being referred to as “T+3”). Under Rule 15c6-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days unless the parties to a trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade Senior Notes on the date hereof will be required, by virtue of the fact that the Senior Notes initially will settle in T+3, to specify alternative settlement arrangements to prevent a failed settlement. Such purchasers should consult their own advisors.
