At any time prior to November 10, 2020, the Company may, at its option, on any one or more occasions, redeem up to 40% of the aggregate principal amount of the 2026 Notes, at a redemption price equal to 104.625% of the principal amount of the 2026 Notes redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but not including, the date of redemption, with an amount of cash equal to the net cash proceeds of an equity offering, as defined in the 2026 Notes Indenture, by the Company; provided that (1) at least 60% of the aggregate principal amount of 2026 Notes issued under the 2026 Notes Indenture remains outstanding immediately after the occurrence of each such redemption; and (2) the redemption occurs within 120 days of the date of the closing of such equity offering.
