Nothing in this press release should be construed as an offer to purchase, notice of redemption or a solicitation of an offer to purchase any of the Existing Senior Notes and/or any of the Existing Senior Subordinated Notes, and the closing of this offering is not conditioned on the consummation of such redemptions; however, the redemptions of the Existing Senior Notes and the Existing Senior Subordinated Notes are conditioned on the consummation of this offering and certain other financing transactions.
