                              PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION
 
     A broker-dealer that is the holder of original notes that were acquired for
the account of such broker-dealer as a result of market-making or other trading
activities, other than original notes acquired directly from us or any of our
affiliates may exchange such original notes for new notes pursuant to the
exchange offer. This is true so long as each broker-dealer that receives new
notes for its own account in exchange for original notes, where such original
notes were acquired by such broker-dealer as a result of market-making or other
trading activities acknowledges that it will deliver a prospectus in connection
with any resale of such new notes. This prospectus, as it may be amended or
supplemented from time to time, may be used by a broker-dealer in connection
with resales of new notes received in exchange for original notes where such
original notes were acquired as a result of market-making activities or other
trading activities. We have agreed that for a period of 180 days after
consummation of the exchange offer or such time as any broker-dealer no longer
owns any registrable securities, we will make this prospectus, as it may be
amended or supplemented from time to time, available to any broker-dealer for
use in connection with any such resale. All dealers effecting transactions in
the new notes will be required to deliver a prospectus.
 
     We will not receive any proceeds from any sale of new notes by
broker-dealers or any other holder of new notes. New notes received by
broker-dealers for their own account in the exchange offer may be sold from time
to time in one or more transactions in the over-the-counter market, in
negotiated transactions, through the writing of options on the new notes or a
combination of such methods of resale, at market prices prevailing at the time
of resale, at prices related to such prevailing market prices or negotiated
prices. Any such resale may be made directly to purchasers or to or through
brokers or dealers who may receive compensation in the form of commissions or
concessions from any such broker-dealer and/or the purchasers of any such new
notes. Any broker-dealer that resells new notes that were received by it for its
own account pursuant to the exchange offer and any broker or dealer that
participates in a distribution of such new notes may be deemed to be an
"underwriter" within the meaning of the Securities Act and any profit on any
such resale of new notes and any commissions or concessions received by any such
persons may be deemed to be underwriting compensation under the Securities Act.
The letter of transmittal states that by acknowledging that it will deliver and
by delivering a prospectus, a broker-dealer will not be deemed to admit that it
is an "underwriter" within the meaning of the Securities Act.
 
     For a period of 180 days after consummation of the exchange offer or such
time as any broker-dealer no longer owns any registrable securities, we will
promptly send additional copies of this prospectus and any amendment or
supplement to this prospectus to any broker-dealer that requests such documents
in the letter of transmittal. We have agreed to pay all expenses incident to the
exchange offer and to our performance of, or compliance with, the registration
rights agreements (other than commissions or concessions of any brokers or
dealers) and will indemnify the holders of the notes (including any
broker-dealers) against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the
Securities Act.
 
                                 LEGAL MATTERS
 
     The legality of the notes offered in this prospectus and other matters will
be passed upon for us by Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP, New York, New
York.
