Assuming the Financing Condition is met, the Redemption Price will be due and payable on the Redemption Date upon surrender of the Notes.
A notice of redemption is being mailed to all registered holders of the Notes by The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., the trustee for the Notes (the “Trustee”). Copies of the notice of redemption may be obtained from the Trustee by calling 1-800-254-2826.
