We expect delivery of each series of notes will be made against payment therefor on or about May 15, 2015, which is the fourth business day following the date hereof (such settlement cycle being referred to as T+4). Under Rule 15c6-1 under the Exchange Act, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in three business days unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade either series of notes on any date prior to three business days before delivery will be required, by virtue of the fact that the notes initially will settle in T+4, to specify an alternative settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement.
