A Holder will be entitled to withdraw (in whole or in part) its election in the Purchase Notice if the Paying Agent receives, prior to the close of business on January 27, 2017, the third Business Day immediately preceding the Repurchase Date, a duly completed written notice of withdrawal setting forth (i) the principal amount of the Notes with respect to which such notice of withdrawal is being submitted; (ii) if Physical Notes have been issued, the certificate number of the Note in respect of which such notice of withdrawal is being submitted; and (iii) the principal amount, if any, of such Note that remains subject to the original Purchase Notice, which portion must be in principal amounts of $1,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000; provided, that if the Notes are Global Notes, the notice must comply with appropriate procedures of the Depositary.

 

Notes with respect to which a Purchase Notice is given by a Holder may be converted pursuant to Section 14 of the Indenture only if such Purchase Notice has been withdrawn in accordance with the provisions of Article 15 of the Indenture.

 

You must make your own decision as to whether or not to surrender your Notes for repurchase and, if so, the amount of Notes to surrender. None of the Company, or its Board of Directors, employees, advisors or representatives, the Paying Agent, the Trustee or the Conversion Agent are making any representation or recommendation to any holder as to whether or not to surrender that Holder’s Notes.
