Because the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered as of the Early Tender Time exceeded the Aggregate Maximum Amount, no further Notes were accepted for purchase after the Early Tender Time. Any tendered Notes that are not accepted for purchase have been or will be promptly returned or credited to the holder's account.

Dealer Managers and Tender and Information Agent

Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Merrill Lynch International served as dealer managers for the Tender Offer. Global Bondholder Services Corporation served as the tender and information agent for the Tender Offer.

This press release shall not constitute, or form part of, an offer to sell, a solicitation to buy or an offer to purchase or sell any securities. The Tender Offer was made solely pursuant to the Offer to Purchase and only in such jurisdictions as permitted under applicable law.

Neither the Offer to Purchase nor any disclosure document (as defined in the Australian Corporations Act 2001) in relation to the Notes was lodged with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, and in Australia, the Tender Offer was only available to persons to whom an offer or invitation could be made without disclosure under Parts 6D.2 or 7.9 of the Australian Corporations Act.

From time to time, the Offeror or its affiliates may purchase additional Notes in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions, through tender or exchange offers or other methods, or the Offeror may redeem Notes pursuant to their terms. Any future purchases may be on the same terms or on terms that are more or less favorable to holders of the Notes than the terms of the Tender Offer.
