Risks Related to the Exchange Offer
If you choose not to exchange your Old Notes in the exchange offers, the transfer restrictions currently applicable to your Old Notes will remain in force and the market price and liquidity of your Old Notes may decline.
If you do not exchange your Old Notes for New Notes in the applicable exchange offer, then your Old Notes will remain outstanding and will continue to accrue interest but will remain subject to the transfer restrictions set forth in the Indenture and in the legend on the certificates evidencing the Old Notes, as well as the restrictions on transfer arising under the Securities Act and any other applicable securities laws, and you will not be entitled to receive any Additional Interest on your Old Notes and will not (subject to possible limited exceptions) be entitled to any registration rights or other rights under the Registration Rights Agreement for your Old Notes. In general, you may offer or sell your Old Notes only if:
subject, in each of the foregoing cases, to compliance with the securities laws of any other applicable jurisdiction and with the procedures specified in the applicable Indenture, including the delivery of any certificate, opinion of counsel or other information that may be required by that Indenture or by us. We do not intend to register the Old Notes under the Securities Act or to make a prospectus available to enable you to sell or otherwise transfer your Old Notes.
Any Old Notes of a particular series exchanged for New Notes of that series in the applicable exchange offer will be cancelled and, as a result, the aggregate principal amount of outstanding Old Notes of that series will be reduced, which may have a material adverse effect on the market price and liquidity of any Old Notes of that series that remain outstanding after that exchange offer and may increase the volatility of the market price of such Old Notes.
