The consent solicitation expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 3, 2018.  As of the expiration time, the Company had received the consent of holders of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount outstanding of each series of notes outstanding under the Indenture. These consents may not be revoked.

Pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the consent solicitation statement previously distributed to holders of the notes, the Company will pay a consent fee of $2.50 per $1,000 in principal amount of notes to any holder who validly delivered a duly executed consent prior to the expiration time that was not properly revoked. 

With respect to any consent in respect of a series of notes accepted by the Company, the Company will also pay the relevant soliciting broker a fee of $2.50 per $1,000 principal amount of notes of such series to which the consent relates, provided that such fee will only be paid with respect to the first $200,000 aggregate principal amount of each series of notes for which a consent is provided by any individual holder.

The Company currently anticipates total fees related to the consent solicitation to be approximately $11 million, inclusive of consent, broker and investment banking fees.

The Company has executed a supplemental indenture to the indenture governing its senior notes to give effect to the amendments proposed by the consent solicitation, which will become operative upon the payment of the consent fee.  The supplemental indenture binds all holders of the Company's senior notes, including those that did not give their consent, but holders who did not deliver consents prior to the expiration time (or delivered consents but properly revoked them) will not receive consent fees.

Questions concerning the terms of the consent solicitation should be directed to the solicitation agent, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Smith Incorporated by telephone at (888) 292-0070 or collect (980) 388-4813. Requests for assistance in submitting a consent or requests for additional copies of the consent solicitation statement or other related documents should be directed to the information agent by telephone at (212) 430-3774 (Banks and Brokers) or (866) 470-3900 (toll free), in writing at 65 Broadway – Suite 404, New York, New York 10006 and via email at contact@gbsc-usa.com.
