It is expected that delivery of the shares of Series E Preferred Stock will be made against payment therefore on or about July 1, 2019, which is the fifth business day following the date hereof (such settlement cycle being referred to as “T+5”).  Under Rule 15c6‑1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise.  Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade the notes prior to the second business day before the delivery of the shares will be required, by virtue of the fact that the notes initially will settle in T+5, to specify an alternative settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent failed settlement.  Purchasers of the shares who wish to trade the shares prior to the second business day before the delivery of the shares should consult their own advisors.
