All other terms of the original Consent Solicitation, dated December 20, 2006, remain in effect and unmodified. Holders of notes that have validly provided consents do not need to take any further actions in light of the extension, or the changes to the solicitation terms of the 2014 Notes.

Holders of Notes who wish to deliver consents prior to the expiration date of 5:00 p.m. New York City time on January 9, 2007 may use the original consent form that accompanied the December 20, 2006 Consent Solicitation Statement. Only holders of Notes who validly provide consent on or before the expiration date and do not properly revoke such consent will be eligible to receive a consent payment. At any time following the receipt of the requisite consents from the holders of Notes, and in accordance with the terms of the Consent Solicitation Statement, the Company may execute and deliver to the trustee supplemental indentures with respect to the proposed amendments described in the Consent Solicitation Statement (the "Effective Time"). Holders may revoke consents until the earlier of the Effective Time or the expiration date of 5:00 p.m. New York City time, on January 9, 2007, unless terminated or further extended.
