The supplemental indenture will thereafter be binding on all holders of the Notes, including holders whose Notes were not purchased in the tender offer.

Holders who validly tender their Notes at or prior to the Extended Consent Payment Deadline, and whose Notes are accepted for purchase, will receive a consent payment equal to US$2.50 per US$1,000 principal amount of Notes in addition to the tender offer consideration of US$1,004.59 for each US$1,000 principal amount of the Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest on the tendered Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Settlement Date The tender offer for the Notes will expire at 10:00 a.m. New York City time, on March 28, 2014 unless extended by the Purchaser.

The Issuer expects to redeem any and all of the Notes not tendered by issuing a notice of redemption as soon as practically possible after the tender offer expires.

The Purchaser reserves the right to waive any and all conditions of the tender offer and consent solicitation or to extend the consent payment deadline or expiry date. If any condition of the tender offer and consent solicitation is not satisfied, the Purchaser reserves the right to withdraw the tender offer and consent solicitation and not accept any Notes for purchase, or to amend the terms of the tender offer and consent solicitation.
