The holders who delivered valid and unrevoked consents prior to the Expiration Time will receive a cash payment of $1.00 multiplied by the Notes’ scaling factor as of the Expiration Time of the Consent Solicitation per each $1,000 original principal amount of Notes for which consents were delivered by such holders. Such payment is expected to be made immediately prior to the Migration.

Wells Fargo Securities served as the solicitation agent for the Consent Solicitation. D.F. King & Co., Inc. served as the information agent and tabulation agent for the Consent Solicitation.
