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).

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").
