The Notes are being offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and outside the United States, only to certain non-U.S. investors pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.
