The Company will redeem all 3,000,000 outstanding Series D shares on March 18, 2013 for a redemption price of $25.00 per share, plus $0.0141 per share in accrued and unpaid dividends to but excluding the redemption date, for an aggregate price of $25.0141 per share.

The redemptions will be in accordance with the Depository Trust Company's procedures.

After the redemption date, dividends on the Series D shares will cease to accrue and such shares shall no longer be deemed outstanding and all rights of the holders in respect of such shares being redeemed will terminate, except for the right to receive the redemption price, without interest thereon. Because the redemption is a redemption in full, the Series D shares will be delisted from trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
