Price to public:    $14.00 per share of common stock
Trade date:    August 5, 2010
Closing date:    August 10, 2010
Net proceeds to us:    $442,200,000, after deducting $23.80 million of underwriting discounts and commission and estimated offering expenses of $10 million payable by us (excluding underwriters’ option to purchase 5,100,000 additional shares of common stock)
As adjusted capitalization:    Based on the amended offering price and otherwise on the same basis as the calculations in the Preliminary Prospectus, our as adjusted capitalization as of April 4, 2010 would have been (in millions):

Total short-term debt

   $ 611

Total long-term debt


Total debt(1)


Total stockholders’ equity


Total capitalization

   $ 5,801


(1)     As further adjusted, additional accrued interest of $11 million as of April 4, 2010 (based on the applicable interest rates for this period) relating to the portion of our long-term indebtedness assumed to be repaid or redeemed would be paid using cash on hand. As further adjusted, our cash and cash equivalents would have been $836 million and our net debt would have been $3,877 million.


Pro forma interest expense:    Based on the amended offering price and otherwise on the same basis as the calculations in the Preliminary Prospectus, our net interest expense (including debt issuance costs) for the quarter ended April 4, 2010 and the year ended December 31, 2009, would have been $82 million and $391 million, respectively, on a pro forma basis.


Without taking into account any adjustment in net tangible book value attributable to operations after April 4, 2010, after giving effect to (i) the sale by us of shares in this offering at an initial public offering price of $14.00, and (ii) the issuance and sale of $1,000 million principal amount of New Secured Notes and the application of the net proceeds therefrom as described in footnote (1) to the capitalization table in “As adjusted consolidated cash and cash equivalents and capitalization”, our as adjusted net tangible book deficit as of April 4, 2010, after deduction of the underwriting discount and estimated offering expenses and the application of the estimated net proceeds as described under “Use of Proceeds”, would have been approximately $3,197 million, or $13 per share. This represents an immediate increase in net tangible book value of $4 per share to stockholders. As a result, dilution per share to new investors in this offering is $27 per share.


New investors purchasing shares of common stock in this offering will have contributed 8% of the total consideration paid for our common stock.

Recent developments (additional second quarter information):    Our net loss for the second quarter was an estimated $350 million, largely due to foreign currency remeasurement losses on U.S. dollar-denominated notes and short-term loans, compared to $336 million for the first quarter of 2010. Total stockholders’ equity was an estimated $331 million at the end of the second quarter of 2010, a reduction of an estimated $282 million from total stockholders’ equity of $613 million at the end of the first quarter of 2010, due to our net loss in the period, partly offset by currency translation adjustments. Since the end of the second quarter, the euro has appreciated against the U.S. dollar.
