receive $1,050.00 per $1,000 principal amount of purchased 2017
Notes, which includes a consent payment of $30.00 per $1,000
principal amount of 2017 Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest up
to, but not including, the initial settlement date. The Offer is
scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on April 17,
2013, unless extended or earlier terminated (the "Expiration Time").
