The information in this communication supersedes the information in the preliminary prospectus supplement to the extent it is inconsistent with such information. Other information presented in the preliminary prospectus supplement is deemed to have changed to the extent affected by the changes described herein.
We expect that delivery of the notes will be made to investors on or about May 25, 2016, which will be the tenth business day following the date of this prospectus supplement. Under Rule 15c6-1 under the Exchange Act, trades in the secondary market are required, subject to certain exceptions, to settle in three business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade the notes on the date of pricing or the next six succeeding business days will be required, by virtue of the fact that the notes will initially settle in T+10, to specify an alternate settlement arrangement at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. Those purchasers should consult their advisors.
