The Senior Notes will be offered only to qualified institutional buyers in the United States under Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and outside the United States to persons other than U.S. persons in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The offering of the Senior Notes has not been registered under the Securities Act or under any state securities laws, and the Senior Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and of applicable state securities laws.
The Senior Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of CAM.
