Additional Information:






Selling Concession:










The Issuer expects to deliver the Notes on or about December 14, 2007. Under Rule 15c6-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle within three business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, if an investor wishes to trade the Notes on any day prior to the third business day before the date of delivery of the Notes, the investor and its counterparty will be required, by virtue of the fact that the Notes initially will settle on a delayed basis, to agree to a delayed settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement.
