The Issuers will accept Old Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) by Eligible Holders up to the Maximum Exchange Amount.

The settlement of the Exchange Offers is expected to occur on August 24, 2023, unless extended or terminated and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offering Memorandum (the “Settlement Date“). The consummation of the Exchange Offers is not conditioned upon the consummation of the Significant Noteholder Exchange or vice versa.

The New Notes and the offering thereof have not been and will not be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC“) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act“) or any other applicable securities laws. Each Exchange Offer was made, and the New Notes are only being offered and issued, to holders of Old Notes who are (a) reasonably believed to be “qualified institutional buyers” (as defined in Rule 144A promulgated under the Securities Act), or (b) not “U.S. persons” as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act and are in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act, or (c) institutions that are “accredited investors” as defined in Rule 501(a)(1), (2) (3), (7), or (8) under the Securities Act (such holders, the “Eligible Holders“).

The Company engaged PJT Partners LP as the dealer manager for the Exchange Offers. The Company appointed D.F. King & Co. as exchange agent and information agent for the Exchange Offers.
