The terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are described in an Offer to Purchase, dated April 10, 2017 (the “Statement”), which has been sent to holders of the 2018 Notes. This press release is not an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell any 2018 Notes. The Tender Offer is made only by, and pursuant to the terms of, the Statement.
