The deadline to validly withdraw tenders of the Old Notes was also extended to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 7, 2023.
The Exchange Offer and the Consent Solicitation are being made upon the terms and conditions set forth in the confidential offering memorandum and consent solicitation statement, dated June 8, 2023 (as supplemented on June 16, 2023 and June 30, 2023, the “Offering Memorandum”).
