As of the expiration of the Offer, $234,733,000 aggregate principal amount of the Convertible Notes, representing approximately 80.11% of the total Convertible Notes outstanding, were validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) pursuant to the Offer.

This press release is for informational purposes only and is neither an offer to buy nor the solicitation of an offer to sell any of the Company’s securities.
Termination of Bond Hedge and Warrant Transactions
In connection with the Offer, we expect to agree with each of Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, Bank of America, N.A. and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (the “Option Counterparties“) to terminate certain convertible bond hedge transactions and separate warrant transactions between us and the Option Counterparties. We had entered into the convertible bond hedge transactions and warrant transactions with the Option Counterparties at the time of the offering of the Convertible Notes. We expect to terminate the convertible bond hedge transactions and warrant transactions in an amount corresponding to the portion of the Convertible Notes accepted for purchase in the Offer. In connection with these terminations, the Company may receive payments from or make payments to the Option Counterparties in amounts that depend on the market price of the Company’s common stock during the related valuation period.
In connection with the termination of the convertible bond hedge and warrant transactions and unwinding of their existing hedge positions with respect to such transactions, we are advised that the Option Counterparties or their respective affiliates expect to sell shares of our common stock in secondary market transactions, and/or unwind various derivative transactions with respect to our common stock, shortly after the expiration of the Offer. This activity could decrease (or reduce the magnitude of any increase in) the market price of our common stock at that time and it could adversely affect the market value of the Convertible Notes that remain outstanding following the consummation of the Offer.
