Form of Offering:


SEC Registered (Registration Nos. 333-222998 and 333-222998-01)


We expect that delivery of the notes will be made to investors on or about August 15, 2018, which will be the seventh business day following the date of this prospectus supplement (such settlement being referred to as ‘‘T+7’’). Under Rule 15c6-1 of the Exchange Act, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade the notes on the date of pricing of the notes or the next four succeeding business days will be required, by virtue of the fact that the notes initially will settle in T+7, to specify an alternative settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent failed settlement and should consult their own advisors.
