Item 8.01.Other Events.

On May 10, 2021, we issued a press release announcing our plan to offer $325 million aggregate principal amount of fixed-rate senior unsecured notes in a proposed private offering that would not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933. We intend to use the net proceeds of this offering, together with cash on hand, to redeem $325 million aggregate principal amount of our outstanding 8.000% Senior Notes due 2022. That press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report and is incorporated herein by reference as if set forth in full.

This Current Report does not constitute a notice of redemption with respect to any of the Company’s outstanding senior notes.
