The consent solicitation will now expire at 5:00 p.m., New York time, on December 14, 2012, unless further extended by the Company.

Holders of the Notes may withdraw their consent at any time prior to the date on which consents have been delivered and not validly revoked by holders of at least 66 2/3% of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes.
