(the "Company") announced today that its offer with respect to its outstanding 15% Second Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2013 (the "Old Notes") expired at midnight, New York City time, on March 7, 2013. The exchange offer was for either: (a) cash payment of accrued and unpaid interest on the Old Notes plus a new issue of 15% second priority senior secured notes (the "New Notes") in a principal amount equal to 102.5% of the principal amount of the Old Notes; or (b) for Old Notes not to exceed $3 million in aggregate principal amount, cash equal to 75% of the principal amount of the Old Notes.
