In each case, holders may not tender their Notes without delivering their consents to the Proposed Amendments and may not deliver consents to the Proposed Amendments without tendering their Notes. Each of Holdings and Cooper Standard is seeking consents to the Proposed Amendments with respect to the applicable Notes as a single proposal in each case.

The early tender deadline for the Offers is 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 3, 2014 (such time and date, as it may be extended for either series of Notes, the "Early Tender Deadline"), and the Offers will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of the day on April 18, 2014 (such time and date, as it may be extended for either series of Notes, the "Expiration Time"), in each case, unless extended or earlier terminated by Holdings or Cooper Standard, as applicable. Notes tendered may be withdrawn at any time at or before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 3, 2014 (such time and date, as it may be extended for either series of Notes, the "Withdrawal Deadline") but not thereafter, except as required by law.
