The issuer expects that delivery of the Notes will be made against payment thereof on the twelfth business day following the date of the pricing of the Notes. Pursuant to Rule 15c6-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade the Notes on the date of pricing or the next nine succeeding business days will be required, by virtue of the fact that the Notes initially will settle in T+12, to specify alternative settlement arrangements to prevent a failed settlement.
