All information (including financial information) presented in the Preliminary Prospectus Supplement is deemed to have changed to the extent affected by the changes described herein.
This communication is intended for the sole use of the person to whom it is provided by the issuer. This communication does not constitute an offer to sell the units and is not soliciting an offer to buy the units in any jurisdiction where the offer or sale is not permitted.
It is expected that delivery of the units will be made to investors on or about November 14, 2017, which will be the third business day following the date hereof (such settlement being referred to as T+3).

Purchasers of the units who wish to trade the units on any date prior to the business day before delivery should consult their own advisors.
