**We expect that delivery of the Series G Preferred Stock will be made against payment therefor on or about the original issue date specified in this Term Sheet, which will be the fifth business day following the date of this Term Sheet (this settlement cycle being referred to as “T + 5”). Under Rule 15c6-1 under the Exchange Act, 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 Series G Preferred Stock on the Trade Date or the following two business days will be required, by virtue of the fact that the Series G Preferred Stock initially will settle in T + 5, to specify an alternate settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement.
