The Offer expired at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on December 31, 2012 (the "Expiration Time"). As of the Expiration Time, based on the final information provided to the Company by i-Deal LLC, the depositary for the Offer, the Company received tenders and consents from holders of $252,320,000, or 95.2% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes. All Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Offer have been accepted for payment by the Company.
Based on the consents received, the Company entered into a supplemental indenture that eliminates substantially all of the restrictive covenants, certain events of default and related provisions in the indenture governing the Notes.
The tender offer and consent solicitation were made by the Company in connection with, and pursuant to the terms of, the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated November 21, 2012, by and among Alliant Holdings I, LLC, the ultimate parent of the Company, A-S L.P., A-S Parent Inc., A-S Merger Sub LLC and the representative named therein.

All of these conditions were satisfied.
Holders of the Notes that validly tendered prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time on December 14, 2012 (the "Consent Time") and not validly withdrawn received the "Total Consideration" of $1,032.08 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes. Holders of the Notes that validly tendered after the Consent Time but on or prior to the Expiration Time received the "Tender Offer Consideration" of $997.50 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, which is the total consideration less the consent payment of $34.58 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes.
