be used for general corporate purposes, including the prepayment of the
initial amortization amount due under its term loan.

The notes will be offered and sold to qualified institutional buyers in the

Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933.

The notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 or any
state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States
absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration
requirements of the Securities Act of 1933 and applicable state laws.

This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of
an offer to purchase the notes or any other securities, and shall not
constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any state or jurisdiction in
which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. This news release
is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135c under the
Securities Act of 1933.
