This press release is being issued pursuant to Rule 135c under the Securities Act, and is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the New Notes, the Original Notes or any other securities and shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, or a sale of, the New Notes, the Original Notes or any other securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
