As of the Expiration Date, based on information received from Ipreo LLC, the Information Agent for the Exchange Offer and the Consent Solicitation, $260,452,340 in aggregate principal amount of Existing Notes, representing 92.74% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding, had been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn.
