Taxpayer Information:

A Holder may be subject to a $50 penalty imposed by the United States Internal Revenue Service (the "IRS") and backup withholding at a rate of 28% of the redemption proceeds payable to a Holder unless the Holder (i) establishes that he, she or it is a corporation or other exempt Holder or (ii) provides an accurate taxpayer identification number on an IRS Form W-9, and makes the appropriate certifications set forth in IRS Form W-9 under penalties of perjury. For further information concerning backup withholding and instructions for completing IRS Form W-9 (including how to obtain a taxpayer identification number if you do not have one and how to complete IRS Form W-9 if the Notes are held in more than one name), consult the general instructions in IRS Form W-9. Each Holder that is not a U.S. person (as defined in the general instructions in IRS Form W-9, such Holder referred to herein as a "Non-U.S. Holder") generally must submit a properly completed applicable IRS Form W-8 (rather than an IRS Form W-9), certifying, under penalties of perjury, to such Non-U.S. Holder's foreign status in order to establish an exemption from backup withholding. An applicable IRS Form W-8 or IRS Form W-9 and instructions to any of these forms may be obtained at the IRS website at http://www.irs.gov
