The Supplemental Indenture also waives any default or event of default under the Indenture that may occur or exist as a result of or in connection with the Company's failure to timely deliver to the trustee or the noteholders, or file with the SEC, the delayed SEC reports, provided that such delayed SEC reports are delivered to the trustee or the noteholders or filed with the SEC by November 16, 2015.
