(the "Co-Issuer" and, together with the Company, the "Issuers") announced today that they commenced a tender offer to purchase for cash (the "Tender Offer") any and all of the $452,391,000 aggregate principal amount outstanding of their 6.75% Senior Notes due 2021 (the "Notes") and a solicitation of consents (the "Consent Solicitation") for proposed amendments to the related indenture. The Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation are being made pursuant to an Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated as of May 24, 2017 (the "Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement"), and related consent and letter of transmittal. The Tender Offer will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on June 21, 2017.

Pursuant to the Consent Solicitation, the Issuers are soliciting from holders of the Notes consents to amendments to the indenture governing the Notes that would eliminate most of the covenants, certain events of default applicable to the Notes and amend certain other provisions contained in such indenture and the Notes (the "Proposed Amendments"). Adoption of the Proposed Amendments requires the consent of the holders of at least a majority of the outstanding principal amount of the Notes. A holder may not revoke a consent without withdrawing the previously tendered Notes to which such consent relates. Notes tendered may only be withdrawn, and related consents revoked, prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 7, 2017, unless extended, except in limited circumstances where additional withdrawal rights are required by law.
