be accepted only in the principal amount of $1,000 and integral multiples
thereof. If less than all the Original Notes evidenced by any Certificate
submitted are to be tendered, fill in the principal amount of Original Notes
which are to be tendered in the box entitled "Principal Amount of Original Notes

of the Original Notes that were evidenced by your old Certificate(s) will only

All Original Notes represented by Certificates delivered to the Exchange Agent
will be deemed to have been tendered unless otherwise indicated.
Except as otherwise provided herein, tenders of Original Notes may be
withdrawn at any time on or prior to the Expiration Date. In order for a
withdrawal to be effective on or prior to that time, a written, telegraphic,
telex or facsimile transmission of such notice of withdrawal must be timely
received by the Exchange Agent at one of its addresses set forth above or in the
Prospectus on or prior to the Expiration Date. Any such notice of withdrawal
must specify the name of the person who tendered the Original Notes to be
withdrawn, the aggregate principal amount of Original Notes to be withdrawn, and
(if Certificates for Original Notes have been tendered) the name of the
registered holder of the Original Notes as set forth on the Certificate for the
Original Notes, if different from that of the person who tendered such Original
Notes. If Certificates for the Original Notes have been delivered or otherwise
identified to the Exchange Agent, then prior to the physical release of such
Certificates for the Original Notes, the tendering holder must submit the serial
numbers shown on the particular Certificates for the Original Notes to be
withdrawn and the signature on the notice of withdrawal must be guaranteed by an
Eligible Institution, except in the case of Original Notes tendered for the
account of an Eligible Institution. If Original Notes have been tendered
pursuant to the procedures for book-entry transfer set forth in "The Exchange
Offer -- Procedures for Tendering," the notice of withdrawal must specify the
name and number of the account at DTC to be credited with the withdrawal of
Original Notes, in which case a notice of withdrawal will be effective if
delivered to the Exchange Agent by written, telegraphic, telex or facsimile
transmission. Withdrawals of tenders of Original Notes may not be rescinded.
Original Notes properly withdrawn will not be deemed validly tendered for
purposes of the Exchange Offer, but may be retendered at any subsequent time on
or prior to the Expiration Date by following any of the procedures described in
the Prospectus under "The Exchange Offer -- Procedures for Tendering."
All questions as to the validity, form and eligibility (including time of
receipt) of such withdrawal notices will be determined by the Issuers, in its
sole discretion, whose determination shall be final and binding on all parties.
Neither the Issuers, any affiliates or assigns of the Issuers, the Exchange
Agent nor any other person shall be under any duty to give any notification of
any irregularities in any notice of withdrawal or incur any liability for
failure to give any such notification. Any Original Notes which have been
tendered but which are withdrawn will be returned to the holder thereof without
cost to such holder promptly after withdrawal.
