PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE CAREFULLY. IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE CLASS, YOUR RIGHTS WILL BE AFFECTED BY A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT PENDING IN THIS COURT, AND YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO SHARE IN THE $150,000,000 SETTLEMENT.
YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED, pursuant to Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and an Order of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, that the parties in the above-captioned litigation (the "Action") have reached a proposed settlement for $150,000,000 in cash (the "Settlement"), that, if approved, will resolve all claims in the Action.
YOU ARE ALSO NOTIFIED that the Action has been certified as a class action on behalf of the Class. Certain persons and entities are, however, excluded from the Class by definition as set forth in the full printed Notice of (I) Pendency of Class Action, Class Certification, and Proposed Settlement; (II) Settlement Hearing; and (III) Motion for an Award of Attorneys' Fees and Reimbursement of Litigation Expenses (the "Notice"), which more completely describes the Settlement and your rights thereunder.
