The notes and related guarantees have not been, and will not be, registered under the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").The notes and related guarantees may not be offered or sold in the US absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.

Consequently no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (as amended, the "PRIIPs Regulation") for offering or selling the Notes or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the EEA has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the Notes or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may be unlawful under the PRIIPS Regulation.
