Notice is hereby given by the Issuer that, in accordance with the Terms and Conditions of the Notes under the Program and the Final Terms of Compartment NL 2008-IV, each of the Put Option Noteholders has the right to exercise the Put Option and to offer to the Issuer any or all Put Option Notes held by it for redemption on 25 April 2012 (the ‘Put Date’). The Put Option Notes in respect of which the Put Option is exercised may be redeemed, subject to, amongst others, Condition of the Notes 9, on the Put Date.
To exercise the Put Option, the Put Option Noteholder must deliver, at the specified office of the Principal Paying Agent at any time during normal business hours of the Principal Paying Agent by no later than 9 March 2012, a duly completed and signed notice of exercise in the form obtainable from the Principal Paying Agent together with the relevant instruction as required by Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg (the ‘Put Notice’) in which the Put Option Noteholder must specify a bank account to which payment is to be made under Condition of the Notes 6(d) accompanied by the Put Option Note or evidence satisfactory to the Issuer that the relevant Put Option Note will, following delivery of the Put Notice, be held to its order or under its control.
With reference to Conditions 6(d)(v) and 6(d)(vi) of the Terms and Conditions of the Notes under the Program, Put Option Noteholders are hereby informed that the Issuer expects not to have sufficient funds available to redeem the Notes which are subject to redemption on the Put Date.
In the light of the Issuer’s expectation that it will not have sufficient funds available to redeem the Notes which are subject to redemption on the Put Date and as to avoid that Notes would unnecessarily be blocked for trading from the moment of exercise of the Put Option by a Put Option Noteholder up to the Put Date, Put Option Noteholders are hereby informed that the Notes in relation to which a notice of exercise of the Put Option is delivered, will not be subject to blocking up to the Put Date. Put Option Noteholders that would have exercised the Put Option if the Issuer would have been in a position to honour such exercise should nevertheless deliver a Put Notice in accordance with the instructions set out above. Noteholders who in any event wish to exercise the Put Option, may likewise deliver a Put Notice in accordance with the instructions set out above.
