The terms and conditions of the Notes permit the Issuers to unconditionally redeem all of the Notes at a redemption price of 102% plus accrued and unpaid interest up to and including the date fixed for redemption. The expected date for redemption by the Issuers is October 1, 2007.

Formal notice of the redemption will be made to bondholders in accordance with the terms of the Notes, with such notice to be mailed at least 30 days but no more than 60 days before the redemption date.

Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

Section 303A of the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) Listed Company Manual requires NYSE-listed companies to disclose in their annual proxy statements the non-management director who is chosen to preside at all regularly-scheduled executive sessions of the non-management members of the board of directors, or, alternatively, the procedure by which a presiding director is chosen for each session.
