Holders of the Notes that are validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer will receive a fixed purchase price of U.S.$1,035 (the "Purchase Price") per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes. In addition to the Purchase Price all holders of Notes accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes, rounded to the nearest $0.01 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the Settlement Date (as defined below).

Holders must make their own decision as to whether to tender Notes and, if so, the principal amount of the Notes to tender.

The Issuer has retained GPB-Financial Services Ltd to act as the dealer manager for the Tender Offer and Citibank N.A., London Branch to act as tender and tabulation agent for the Tender Offer.
