  2. Includes the Early Participation Premium of $50.00 in principal amount of New Second Lien Notes.
  3. In addition to the Total Exchange Consideration, the Company will also pay in cash accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date.

The new notes issuable in the Exchange Offers are comprised of 7¾% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due February 15, 2024 and 6⅜% Convertible Senior Notes due December 31, 2024.  The consideration for the exchange of 2021 Notes, 2022 Notes and Old Second Lien Notes pursuant to the Private Exchanges is the same as the consideration being offered in the Exchange Offers.

The maximum amount of consideration of each type (the “Maximum Consideration Threshold”) that the Company will pay or issue in the Subordinated Notes Exchange Offers is limited to $71.5 million in cash, $71.3 million aggregate principal amount in New Second Lien Notes and $98.9 million aggregate principal amount in New Convertible Senior Notes.  Accordingly, if the Subordinated Notes Exchange Offers are oversubscribed prior to the Early Participation Time, all 2021 Notes will be accepted before any 2022 Notes are accepted, and all 2022 Notes will be accepted on a pro rata basis until the applicable Maximum Consideration Threshold is met.  However, all Old Subordinated Notes tendered before the Early Participation Time will be accepted before any Old Subordinated Notes tendered after the Early Participation Time are accepted.  Based on the foregoing, 2021 Notes tendered before the Early Participation Time will not be subject to proration.

Pursuant to both the Subordinated Notes Private Exchanges and the Subordinated Notes Exchange Offers, the Company will pay or issue up to an aggregate of (1) $120.0 million of cash, (2) $107.9 million principal amount of New Second Lien Notes and (3) $248.0 million principal amount of New Convertible Senior Notes.  Pursuant to the Private Exchanges and the Exchange Offers, the Company will issue up to an aggregate of $557.9 million principal amount of New Second Lien Notes.  All New Second Lien Notes, whether issued in the Private Exchanges or the Exchange Offers, will have the same CUSIP, be part of the same series and be fungible.

The New Second Lien Notes will be secured by the same collateral as the Old Second Lien Notes.  The New Second Lien Notes will have the same maturity date as the Old Second Lien Notes.  However, the holders of the New Second Lien Notes may require the Company to repurchase the New Second Lien Notes at a price of par if any Old Second Lien Notes remain outstanding on November 15, 2023.

The New Convertible Senior Notes will be convertible into the Company’s common stock at any time, at the option of each holder, at a rate of 370 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of New Convertible Senior Notes, resulting in an effective issue price of $2.70 per share.  In addition, the New Convertible Senior Notes will automatically convert at that same rate (subject to dividend, distribution or other customary adjustments) if the volume-weighted average price of the Company’s common stock is at or above $2.43 per share for ten out of fifteen consecutive trading days.  The maximum number of shares subject to the New Convertible Senior Notes would be approximately 92 million.

All the New Notes will rank senior to all existing and future subordinated indebtedness of the Company, including any 2021 Notes, 2022 Notes or 2023 Notes that remain outstanding after the consummation of the Exchange Offers.

Eligible Holders of Old Notes accepted for exchange in the Exchange Offers will receive accrued and unpaid interest on such Old Notes in cash from the applicable last interest payment date to, but not including, the applicable Settlement Date.  Tenders may be validly withdrawn at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time, on June 14, 2019, but not thereafter unless required by law.

The consummation of the Exchange Offers is conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of customary conditions described in the Offering Memorandum and Letter of Transmittal.  In addition, the consummation of the Exchange Offers is conditioned on a minimum of $300 million aggregate principal amount of New Second Lien Notes and $200 million aggregate principal amount of New Senior Convertible Notes being issued in the aggregate in the Exchange Offers and pursuant to the Private Exchanges.

The Company currently expects the initial settlement date for the Exchange Offers to occur on or about June 19, 2019 (the “Initial Settlement Date”).  The Exchange Offers will expire at 11:59 p.m. New York City time, on June 28, 2019 (the “Expiration Time”).  The final settlement date, if necessary, for the Exchange Offers is currently expected to occur on or about July 2, 2019 (the “Final Settlement Date” and, together with the Initial Settlement Date, the “Settlement Dates”).

The New Notes have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or under any state securities laws and the New Notes will be issued pursuant to an exemption therefrom, and may not be offered or sold within the United States, or to or for the account or benefit of any U.S. Person, absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.

Documents relating to the Exchange Offers will be distributed only to holders of Old Notes who complete and return an eligibility form confirming that they are either a “qualified institutional buyer” under Rule 144A or not a “U.S. person” under Regulation S as defined under applicable securities laws (the “Eligible Holders”).  The complete terms and conditions of the Exchange Offers, as well as the terms of the New Notes, are described in the Offering Memorandum and Letter of Transmittal.
