The total exchange price for each series of the old notes accepted for exchange will be based on a fixed-spread pricing formula and will be calculated at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on February 15, 2007, assuming no extension of the expiration date. Holders of the old notes who validly tendered by the early participation date will receive an early participation payment as set forth in the Offering Memorandum dated January 23, 2007, and no longer have the right to withdraw their tender of old notes.
