Certain United States Federal Income Tax Considerations:
Notes Used as Qualified Replacement Property
Prospective investors seeking to treat the Notes as qualified replacement property for purposes of Section 1042 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code), should be aware that Section 1042 requires the issuer to meet certain requirements in order for the Notes to constitute qualified replacement property. In general, qualified replacement property is a security issued by a domestic operating corporation that did not, for the taxable year preceding the taxable year in which such security was purchased, have passive investment income in excess of 25 percent of the gross receipts of such corporation for such preceding taxable year (the passive income test). For purposes of the passive income test, where the issuing corporation is in control of one or more corporations or such issuing corporation is controlled by one or more other corporations, all such corporations are treated as one corporation (the affiliated group) when computing the amount of passive investment income for purposes of Section 1042.
The Company believes that it qualifies as a domestic operating corporation and that less than 25 percent of its affiliated groups gross receipts is passive investment income for the taxable year ended December 31, 2014. In making this determination, the Company has made certain assumptions and used procedures which it believes are reasonable. The Company cannot give any assurance as to whether it will continue to qualify as a domestic operating corporation or meet the passive income test. It is, in addition, possible that the Internal Revenue Service may disagree with the manner in which the Company has calculated the affiliated groups gross receipts (including the characterization thereof) and passive investment income and the conclusions reached in this discussion. Prospective purchasers of the Notes should consult with their own tax advisors with respect to these and other tax matters relating to the Notes.
The Notes are securities with no established trading market. No assurance can be given as to whether a trading market for the Notes will develop or as to the liquidity of a trading market for the Notes. The availability and liquidity of a trading market for the Notes will also be affected by the degree to which purchasers treat the Notes as qualified replacement property.
