We are asking you to contact your clients for whom you hold Outstanding Securities. For your use and for forwarding to those clients, we are enclosing copies of the Prospectus, as well as a Letter of Transmittal and a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery for each of the series of Outstanding Securities. We are also enclosing a printed form of letter which you may send to your clients, with space provided for obtaining their instructions with regard to the exchange offers. We urge you to contact your clients as promptly as possible. The Prospectus and Letters of Transmittal provide for payment to Soliciting Dealers of a solicitation fee of 2% of the face amount of accepted Outstanding Securities solicited by such Soliciting Dealer. Please note that in order to receive a solicitation fee with respect to any Outstanding Securities, the Outstanding Securities must be tendered through DTC and the Soliciting Dealer MUST take the following steps: 1. The Soliciting Dealer must request a DTC Participant to submit the Outstanding Securities to be exchanged via DTC's Automated Tender Offer Program ("ATOP"). 2. Each day that a DTC Participant receives any such orders for exchange, it must: a. aggregate the orders, by series of Outstanding Securities, for one separate submission to ATOP for each series of Outstanding Securities; and b. send one email to email@example.com for each ATOP submission it makes, which must include the following: i. information from ATOP ticket fields: 1. Target CUSIP Number, 2. Description of Securities, 3. Contra CUSIP Number, 4. VOI number, 5. Sequence Number, 6. Quantity, 7. DTC Participant's Name and Telephone Number, and 8. Contact Person's Name and Telephone Number; and ii. information regarding each Soliciting Dealer on whose behalf the ATOP submission was made: 1. the Soliciting Dealer's name, 2. the number of Outstanding Securities tendered by the Soliciting Dealer, and 3. a contact person's name, telephone number, and email address. (This person will be contacted to provide information on how to transfer applicable solicitation fees for Outstanding Securities tendered by that Soliciting Dealer.) 3. In the event that a DTC Participant wishes to withdraw Outstanding Securities that have been submitted for exchange via ATOP, the DTC Participant must send an additional email, which sets forth the information required under 2(b) above, including the VOI number that was assigned to the original ATOP submission for exchange of the Outstanding Securities and indicating the amount withdrawn. Each day, emails forwarded by the DTC Participants will be compared and verified against a report that the Exchange Agent will prepare based on the Outstanding Securities exchanged via ATOP. Solicitation fees will be paid only upon reconciliation of these reports. In the event of a discrepancy with respect to reconciliation of the reports, Goldman, Sachs & Co., the DTC Participant and the Soliciting Dealer will jointly resolve the issue, although Goldman, Sachs & Co. reserves the right of final decision with respect to any such discrepancy. However, if the email noted above is not properly completed and forwarded by the DTC Participant, no fee will be paid to the Soliciting Dealer. Please email any questions regarding the procedures set forth above to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, please note that a Soliciting Dealer must first get approval from the beneficial owner of the Outstanding Securities tendered to have itself designated as the Soliciting Dealer for that tender. In order to receive a solicitation fee with respect to any tendered Outstanding Securities, the email or Letter of Transmittal, as the case may be, must relate to Outstanding Securities that have been validly tendered and not withdrawn.
