Substantial sales of common stock may occur in connection with this distribution, which could cause our stock price to decline.
The shares of our common stock that Cendant distributes to its stockholders generally may be sold immediately in the public market. Following the distribution, we believe (based on information as of January 26, 2006) that Barclays Global Investors, N.A. will beneficially own 8.88% of our common stock (see Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management). Although we have no actual knowledge of any plan or intention on the part of any 5% or greater stockholder to sell our common stock following the separation, it is possible that some Cendant stockholders, including possibly some of our large stockholders, will sell our common stock received in the distribution for reasons such as that our business profile or market capitalization as an independent company does not fit their investment objectives. Moreover, index funds tied to the Standard & Poors 500 Index, the Russell 1000 Index and other indices hold shares of Cendant common stock. To the extent our common stock is not included in these indices after the distribution, certain of these index funds will likely be required to sell the shares of our common stock that they receive in the distribution. The sales of significant amounts of our common stock or the perception in the market that this will occur may result in the lowering of the market price of our common stock.
