Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade notes prior to two business days before the delivery of the notes hereunder will be required, by virtue of the fact that the notes initially settle in T+10, to specify an alternate settlement arrangement at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. Purchasers of the notes who wish to trade the notes prior to two business days before their date of delivery hereunder should consult their advisors.
