The Notes were issued pursuant to an indenture dated as of June 3, 2014 (the "Indenture") among the Company, the Notes Guarantors (as defined below) and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the "Trustee"). The Notes were offered in the United States to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. Terms of 5.250% Senior Notes due 2022 Interest on the Notes accrues at the rate of 5.250% per annum and is payable semi-annually in cash in arrears on June 1 and December 1 of each year, commencing on December 1, 2014. The Notes are the Company's senior unsecured obligations and rank equally in right of payment with all of its other existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness and senior in right of payment to all of its existing and future subordinated indebtedness. The Notes are guaranteed on a full, joint and several basis by each of the Company's existing and future domestic restricted subsidiaries that is a borrower under any of the Company's credit facilities or that guarantees any of the Company's debt or that of any of its restricted subsidiaries, in each case incurred under the Company's credit facilities (collectively, the "Notes Guarantors").

The Company is obligated to offer to repurchase the Notes at a price of (a) 101% of their principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, as a result of certain change of control events and (b) 100% of their principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, in the event of certain asset sales. These restrictions and prohibitions are subject to certain qualifications and exceptions. The Indenture contains covenants that, among other things, limit the Company's ability and the ability of certain of the Company's subsidiaries to: (i) grant liens on its assets; (ii) make dividend payments, other distributions or other restricted payments; (iii) incur restrictions on the ability of the Company's restricted subsidiaries to pay dividends or make other payments; (iv) enter into sale and leaseback transactions; (v) merge, consolidate, transfer or dispose of substantially all of their assets; (vi) incur additional indebtedness; (vii) make investments; (viii) sell assets, including capital stock of subsidiaries; (ix) use the proceeds from sales of assets, including capital stock of restricted subsidiaries; and (x) enter into transactions with affiliates. In addition, the Indenture requires, among other things, the Company to provide financial and current reports to holders of the Notes or file such reports electronically with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").
