The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 27, 2011, unless extended or earlier terminated (the "Expiration Date"). The consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of each series of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will be the applicable consideration for such series of Notes set forth in the table above (with respect to each series, the "Tender Offer Consideration"). Holders of Notes who validly tender (and do not withdraw) their Notes at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 13, 2011 (the "Early Tender Date") and whose Notes are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will receive the Tender Offer Consideration for such series, plus the applicable early tender premium set forth in the table above (the "Early Tender Premium" and, together with the Tender Offer Consideration, the "Total Consideration").

All Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will receive the applicable consideration set forth in the table above, plus accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the applicable settlement date (as such term is defined in the Offer to Purchase). Upon satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to the offer, which the Company intends to be promptly following the Early Tender Date, the Company intends to accept for purchase (subject to proration), Notes tendered prior to the Early Tender Date. The Company expects this date to be June 14, 2011.

Tendered Notes may be withdrawn at any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 13, 2011, unless extended by the Company (the "Withdrawal Deadline"). Holders of Notes who tender their Notes after the Withdrawal Date, but on or prior to the Expiration Date, may not withdraw their tendered Notes.

The consummation of the Tender Offer is not conditioned upon any minimum amount of Notes being tendered, but is subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, including, among others, the Company receiving funds from an underwritten public offering of new debt securities sufficient to purchase all Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase by the Company and pay all fees and expenses in connection with the underwritten offering and the Tender Offer.

The Company announced separately that it intends to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $1.0 billion in aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2016 and senior unsecured notes due 2021.
