Subject to the terms and conditions of the tender offer being satisfied or waived, the Company will, promptly after the Expiration Time, accept for purchase all Notes validly tendered at or before the Expiration Time (and not validly withdrawn at or before the Withdrawal Deadline) (or if the Company has exercised its early purchase option as described above, all Notes validly tendered after the Initial Payment Date and at or before the Expiration Time).  The Company will pay the total consideration or tender offer consideration, as the case may be, for such Notes (the date of such payment being referred to as the "Final Payment Date").

The Company's obligation to consummate the tender offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, which are more fully described in the Offer, including, among others, (i) the Company having completed financing transactions in an amount and on terms satisfactory to it, in its sole discretion and (ii) the general conditions described in the Offer having been satisfied.
