All shares purchased will be purchased at this price. We will not offer, and we will not pay, different prices to different stockholders in the tender offer. See Section 1.If you wish to maximize the chance that your shares will be purchased in the offer, you should check the box in the section of the Letter of Transmittal captioned “Shares Tendered at Price Determined Pursuant to the Tender Offer.” Note that this election will mean that your shares will be deemed to be tendered at the minimum price of $12.00 per share. You should understand that this election may lower the purchase price and could result in your shares being purchased at the minimum price of $12.00 per share.
  • Odd Lots:  first, from all stockholders of “odd lots” (persons who own less than 100 shares) who properly tender all of their shares and do not properly withdraw them before the expiration of the tender offer.
