The Company will make a cash payment (the “Consent Payment”) of $10.00 per $1,000 in aggregate principal amount of Notes to each holder who held such Notes as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 10, 2022 and validly delivered (and did not validly revoke) a duly executed consent at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 17, 2022 in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the Consent Solicitation Statement.
