IMPORTANT NOTICE AND TAXPAYER INFORMATION

Under current United States federal income tax law, backup withholding, at a current rate of 28%, generally may apply to the payment of gross redemption proceeds, unless (i) in the case of a non-corporate holder that is a beneficial owner of Notes and that is a United States person (as determined for U.S. federal income tax purposes), the paying agent has received a properly completed IRS Form W-9 setting forth the holder's taxpayer identification number, or (ii) the holder otherwise establishes an exemption. A holder that is a beneficial owner of Notes and that is not a United States person (as determined for U.S. federal income tax purposes) generally may establish an exemption from backup withholding by providing to the paying agent an IRS Form W-8BEN, upon which it certifies its foreign status.
