The Company will pay interest on the 2019 Notes and the 2024 Notes on April 1 and October 1 of each year, beginning on October 1, 2014.

The 2019 Notes will mature on April 1, 2019. The 2024 Notes will mature on April 1, 2024. The Notes will be the senior unsecured obligations of the Company and will rank equally with the Company's other and future senior unsecured obligations. The Notes will not be entitled to the benefit of any sinking fund.

The Notes were issued pursuant to an indenture dated as of June 27, 2001 among the Company, the guarantors (as defined therein) and The Bank of New York Mellon, as trustee (the "Trustee"), as supplemented by the first through fifteenth supplemental indentures of various dates, among the Company, the Trustee and the subsidiary guarantors party thereto and as further supplemented by a sixteenth supplemental indenture dated March 17, 2014 between the Company and the Trustee (collectively, the "Indenture").

The Indenture provides for customary events of default. Upon a change of control triggering event (as defined in the Indenture), the Company will be required to make an offer to purchase the Notes at a price equal to 101% of their principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest to the date of repurchase.

The foregoing description of the Indenture does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the applicable agreements, each of which is included as an exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.
