NOW, THEREFORE, THIS SUPPLEMENTAL INDENTURE WITNESSETH:

For and in consideration of the premises and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, it is mutually agreed, for the equal proportionate benefit of all Holders of the Securities, as follows:

ARTICLE 1

DEFINITIONS

Section 1.01 General. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Indenture.

ARTICLE 2

AGREEMENTS OF PARTIES

Section 2.01 Conversion of Securities. In accordance with Section 12.11 of the Indenture, from and after the date of this Supplemental Indenture, the right to convert each $1,000 principal amount of Securities into Common Stock shall be changed to a right to convert such Securities into the consideration such Holder would have been entitled to receive under the Merger, by reference to that number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Conversion Rate, calculated as provided in Section 12.01 of the Indenture with references to Common Stock replaced by references to the Reference Property, that such Holder would have owned or been entitled to receive had such Holder converted its Notes immediately prior to the Merger, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Indenture and the Notes. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the Company’s shareholders are entitled to receive, for each share of Common Stock, consideration consisting of $15.00 and one (1) CVR which shall constitute the Reference Property. The provisions of the Indenture, as modified herein, shall continue to apply, mutatis mutandis, to the Holders’ right to convert each $1,000 principal amount of Securities into the Reference Property. Aggregate amounts of cash due to each Holder upon such Holder’s conversion of Securities shall be rounded up to the nearest cent.
