No proration for Odd Lot holders:
The term “odd lots” means all shares tendered at prices at or below the Selected Price by a stockholder who owns beneficially or of record a total of fewer than 100 shares (such stockholder, an “odd lot holder”) and so certified in the appropriate place on the Letter of Transmittal and, if applicable, on the Notice of Guaranteed Delivery. To qualify for the priority preference for odd lots, an odd lot holder must tender all shares owned in accordance with the procedures described in Section 3. Odd lots will be accepted for payment before any proration of the purchase of other tendered shares.
Source of Funds:
The aggregate purchase price for the shares tendered in the Offer will be $200 million, unless the Offer is undersubscribed. We expect to fund the purchase of the shares tendered in the Offer from existing cash on hand and revolving loan borrowings under the Credit Agreement. The Offer is not conditioned on the receipt of financing.
