Holders who validly tender (and do not validly withdraw) their 2019 Notes also will be paid accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the applicable date of payment for the tendered 2019 Notes (if such 2019 Notes are accepted for purchase).

The Co-Issuers' obligation to accept for purchase, and to pay for, 2019 Notes and consents validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer is conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, including at least a majority in outstanding principal amount of 2019 Notes having been validly tendered (and not withdrawn) and consents with respect thereto having been validly delivered (and not revoked) pursuant to the Offer. In addition, the Offer is conditioned upon the Co-Issuers having completed a new debt financing transaction on terms acceptable to the Co-Issuers.

The terms of the Offer are described in the Co-Issuers' Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated April 8, 2014 (the "Offer to Purchase").
