The New Secured Credit Facilities will be guaranteed, subject to certain exceptions, by each of the Company's current and future wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries and secured, subject to certain exceptions, on a first priority basis by substantially all assets of the Company and the guarantors.

The Company also intends to effect a private offering of $500 million aggregate principal amount of its senior notes due 2021 (the "Notes"). The Notes will be guaranteed on an unsecured senior basis by each of the Company's current and future wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries that guarantees its obligations under the Company's New Secured Credit Facilities.
