·                                          “A United States law enacted in 2010 and commonly referred to as FATCA potentially imposes a withholding tax of 30% on payments of (i) interest on a debt obligation of a United States issuer and (ii) after December 31, 2018, gross proceeds from the sale or other disposition of such a debt obligation, in each case made to (a) a foreign financial institution (as a beneficial owner or as an intermediary), unless such institution enters into an agreement with the United States government to collect and report (or is required by applicable local law) to collect and provide to the United States or other relevant tax authorities certain information regarding United States account holders of such institution or (b) a non-United States entity (as a beneficial owner) that is not a financial institution unless such entity provides the withholding agent with a certification that it does not have any substantial United States owners or that identifies its substantial United States owners, which generally includes any specified United States person that directly or indirectly owns more than a specified percentage of such entity. FATCA applies to the debt securities. United States Holders that will hold the debt securities through a non-United States intermediary and Non-United States Holders are urged to consult their own tax advisors regarding foreign account tax compliance.”
