In addition, if a Change of Control Triggering Event (as defined in the Supplemental Indenture) occurs with respect to the senior notes of any series, then, unless the Company has exercised its right to redeem all of the outstanding senior notes of such series, the Company must offer to repurchase the senior notes of such series at a price in cash equal to 101% of the principal amount of such senior notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including the applicable Change of Control Payment Date (as defined in the Supplemental Indenture).

The foregoing description of the Supplemental Indenture is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms and conditions of the Supplemental Indenture, which is incorporated by reference herein as Exhibit 4.1. In connection with the issuance of the senior notes and the guarantees, Sidley Austin LLP and Steven M.
