     Any delay in acceptance, extension, termination or amendment will be
followed as promptly as practicable by oral or written notice. If the exchange
offer is amended in a manner determined by us to constitute a material change,
we promptly will disclose such amendment in a manner reasonably calculated to
inform the holders of the original notes of such amendment. Depending upon the
significance of the amendment, we may extend the exchange offer if it otherwise
would expire during such extension period.
 
     Without limiting the manner in which we may choose to make a public
announcement of any extension, amendment or termination of the exchange offer,
we will not be obligated to publish, advertise, or otherwise communicate any
such announcement, other than by making a timely release to an appropriate news
agency.
 
PROCEDURES FOR TENDERING
 
     To tender in the exchange offer, a holder must complete, sign and date the
letter of transmittal, or a facsimile of the letter of transmittal, have the
signatures on the letter of transmittal guaranteed if required by instruction 2
of the letter of transmittal, and mail or otherwise deliver such letter of
transmittal or such facsimile or an agent's message in connection with a book
entry transfer, together with the original notes and any other required
documents. To be validly tendered, such documents must reach the exchange agent
before 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the expiration date. Delivery of the
original notes may be made by book-entry transfer in accordance with the
procedures described below. Confirmation of such book-entry transfer must be
received by the exchange agent prior to the expiration date.
 
     The term "agent's message" means a message, transmitted by a book-entry
transfer facility to, and received by, the exchange agent, forming a part of a
confirmation of a book-entry transfer, which states that such book-entry
transfer facility has received an express acknowledgment from the participant in
such book-entry transfer facility tendering the original notes that such
participant has received and agrees to be bound by the terms of the letter of
transmittal and that we may enforce such agreement against such participant.
 
     The tender by a holder of original notes will constitute an agreement
between such holder and us in accordance with the terms and subject to the
conditions set forth in this prospectus and in the letter of transmittal.
 
     Delivery of all documents must be made to the exchange agent at its address
set forth below. Holders may also request their respective brokers, dealers,
commercial banks, trust companies or nominees to effect such tender for such
holders.
 
     THE METHOD OF DELIVERY OF ORIGINAL NOTES AND THE LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL AND
ALL OTHER REQUIRED DOCUMENTS TO THE EXCHANGE AGENT IS AT THE ELECTION AND RISK
OF THE HOLDERS. INSTEAD OF DELIVERY BY MAIL, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT HOLDERS USE
AN OVERNIGHT OR HAND DELIVERY SERVICE. IN ALL CASES, SUFFICIENT TIME SHOULD BE
ALLOWED TO ASSURE TIMELY DELIVERY TO THE EXCHANGE AGENT BEFORE 5:00 P.M., NEW
YORK CITY TIME, ON THE EXPIRATION DATE. NO LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL OR ORIGINAL
NOTES SHOULD BE SENT TO US.
 
     Only a holder of original notes may tender original notes in the exchange
offer. The term "holder" with respect to the exchange offer means any person in
whose name original notes are registered on our books or any other person who
has obtained a properly completed bond power from the registered holder.
 
     Any beneficial holder whose original notes are registered in the name of
its broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee and who
wishes to tender should contact such registered holder promptly and instruct
such registered holder to tender on its behalf. If such beneficial holder wishes
to tender on its own behalf, such registered holder must, prior to completing
and executing the letter of transmittal and delivering its original notes,
either make appropriate
