SUBJECT TO COMPLETION, DATED OCTOBER 26, 2010
 
PROSPECTUS
 
Fidelity National Information Services, Inc.
 
Offers to Exchange
 
7.625% Senior Notes Due 2017
Registered under the Securities Act
For
A Like Principal Amount of 7.625% Senior Notes Due 2017
($600,000,000 Aggregate Principal Amount)
 
And
 
7.875% Senior Notes Due 2020
Registered under the Securities Act
For
A Like Principal Amount of 7.875% Senior Notes Due 2020
($500,000,000 Aggregate Principal Amount)
 
Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. is offering, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this prospectus and the accompanying letter of transmittal, to exchange (i) an aggregate principal amount of up to $600,000,000 of our 7.625% senior notes due 2017 (which we refer to as the “2017 Exchange Notes”) for an equal principal amount of our outstanding 7.625% senior notes due 2017 (which we refer to as the “2017 Original Notes”) and (ii) an aggregate principal amount of up to $500,000,000 of our 7.875% senior notes due 2020 (which we refer to as the “2020 Exchange Notes,” and collectively with the 2017 Exchange Notes as the “Exchange Notes”) for an equal principal amount of our outstanding 7.875% senior notes due 2020 (which we refer to as the “2020 Original Notes,” and collectively with the 2017 Original Notes as the “Original Notes”). The Exchange Notes will represent the same debt as the respective series of Original Notes, and we will issue the Exchange Notes under the same indenture as the Original Notes.
 
The exchange offers expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on [          ], 2010, unless extended.
 
Terms of the Exchange Offers
 
  •  We are offering to exchange each series of Exchange Notes for the respective series of Original Notes that are validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration of the exchange offers.
 
  •  You may withdraw tendered Original Notes at any time prior to the expiration of the exchange offers.
 
  •  The terms of the Exchange Notes are identical in all material respects (including principal amount, interest rate, maturity and redemption rights) to the respective series of Original Notes for which they may be exchanged, except that the Exchange Notes generally will not be subject to transfer restrictions or be entitled to registration rights, and the Exchange Notes will not have the right to earn additional interest under circumstances relating to our registration obligations.
 
  •  Certain of our subsidiaries will guarantee our obligations under the Exchange Notes, including the payment of principal of, premium, if any, and interest on the Exchange Notes. These guarantees of the Exchange Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of the guarantors. Additional subsidiaries will be required to guarantee the Exchange Notes, and the guarantees of the guarantors will terminate, in each case in the circumstances described under “Description of the Exchange Notes — Guarantees.”
 
  •  The exchange of Original Notes for Exchange Notes generally will not be a taxable event for U.S. federal income tax purposes. See “Certain U.S. Federal Income Tax Considerations.”
 
  •  There is no existing market for the Exchange Notes to be issued, and we do not intend to apply for listing or quotation on any securities exchange or market.
 
See “Risk Factors” beginning on page 16 for a discussion of the factors you should consider in connection with the exchange offers.
 
Each broker-dealer that receives Exchange Notes for its own account pursuant to the exchange offers must acknowledge that it will deliver a prospectus in connection with any resale of such Exchange Notes. The letter of transmittal states that by so acknowledging and by delivering a prospectus, a broker-dealer will not be deemed to admit that it is an “underwriter” within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the rules and regulations thereunder (the “Securities Act”). This prospectus, as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, may be used by a broker-dealer in connection with resales of Exchange Notes received in exchange for Original Notes where such Original Notes were acquired by such broker-dealer as a result of market-making activities or other trading activities. We have agreed to make this prospectus available to any broker-dealer for use in connection with any such resale until the earlier of 90 days after the date the exchange offers registration statement becomes effective and the date on which a broker-dealer is no longer required to deliver a prospectus in connection with market-making or other trading activities. See “Plan of Distribution.”
 
NEITHER THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION NOR ANY STATE SECURITIES COMMISSION HAS APPROVED OR DISAPPROVED OF THESE SECURITIES OR PASSED UPON THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS PROSPECTUS. ANY REPRESENTATION TO THE CONTRARY IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE.
 
The date of this prospectus is [  ], 2010.

You may also read and copy any document we file at the SEC’s public reference room in Washington, D.C. located at 100 F Street, N.E., Room 1580, Washington, D.C. 20549.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
 
This prospectus, the documents incorporated by reference and other written reports and oral statements made from time to time by Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. contain “forward-looking statements” (within the meaning of the U.S. federal securities laws) regarding our expectations, hopes, intentions, or strategies regarding the future. These statements relate to future events and our future results, and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements are based on management’s beliefs, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, management and can generally be identified by the use of expressions such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “likely,” “predict,” “potential,” “continue,” “future,” “estimate,” “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “foresee,” and other similar words or phrases, as well as statements in the future tense; however, these words are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. In addition, any statements that refer to beliefs, expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances and other statements that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements.
 
Actual results, performance or achievement could differ materially from those contained in these forward-looking statements for a variety of reasons, including, without limitation, those discussed elsewhere in this prospectus, the documents incorporated by reference and in our other reports filed with the SEC. The risks and uncertainties that forward-looking statements are subject to include, without limitation:
 
  •  changes and conditions in general economic, business and political conditions, including the possibility of intensified international hostilities, acts of terrorism, and changes and conditions in either or both the United States and international lending, capital and financial markets;
 
  •  the effect of legislative initiatives or proposals, statutory changes, governmental or other applicable regulations and/or changes in industry requirements, including privacy regulations;
 
  •  the effects of our substantial leverage which may limit the funds available to make acquisitions and invest in our business;
 
  •  the risks of reduction in revenue from the elimination of existing and potential customers due to consolidation in or new laws or regulations affecting the banking, retail and financial services industries or due to financial failures or other setbacks suffered by firms in those industries;
 
  •  changes in the growth rates of the markets for core processing, card issuer, and transaction processing services;
 
  •  failures to adapt our services and products to changes in technology or in the marketplace;
 
  •  internal or external security breaches of our systems, including those relating to the theft of personal information and computer viruses affecting our software;
 
  •  the failure to achieve some or all of the benefits that we expect from the Metavante Acquisition (as defined below), including the possibility that the Metavante Acquisition may not be accretive to our


iii


Table of Contents

  earnings due to undisclosed liabilities, management or integration issues, loss of customers, the inability to achieve targeted cost savings, or other factors;
 
  •  our potential inability to find suitable acquisition candidates or finance such acquisitions, which depends upon the availability of adequate cash reserves from operations or of acceptable financing terms and the variability of our stock price, or difficulties in integrating past and future acquired technology or business operations, services, clients and personnel;
 
  •  competitive pressures on product pricing and services including the ability to attract new, or retain existing, customers;
 
  •  an operational or natural disaster at one of our major operations centers; and
 
  •  other risks detailed in “Risk Factors” in this prospectus and in “Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information,” “Risk Factors” and other sections of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 (the “June 2010 10-Q”), and other filings with the SEC.
 
Other unknown or unpredictable factors also could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.
 
These forward-looking statements are inherently subject to uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict.

1


Table of Contents

Currently, there is $600.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 2017 Original Notes outstanding and $500.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 2020 Original Notes outstanding.
 
Original Notes may be exchanged only in minimum denominations of $2,000 and integral multiples of $1,000 in excess of $2,000. Exchange Notes will be issued only in minimum denominations of $2,000 and integral multiples of $1,000 in excess of $2,000.
 
Subject to the terms of the exchange offers, we will exchange the Exchange Notes for all of the Original Notes of each series that are validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration of the applicable exchange offer.
 
Expiration Date Each exchange offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on [     ], 2010, unless we extend it. We do not currently intend to extend the expiration date.
 
Withdrawal of Tenders You may withdraw the tender of your Original Notes at any time prior to the expiration date.
 
Certain U.S. Federal Income Tax Considerations The exchange by a Holder (as defined in “Certain U.S. Federal Income Tax Considerations”) of Original Notes for Exchange Notes in the exchange offers generally will not constitute a taxable exchange for U.S. federal income tax purposes. See “Certain U.S. Federal Income Tax Considerations.”
 
Conditions to the Exchange Offers The exchange offers are subject to customary conditions, which we may waive. See “Exchange Offers — Conditions.”
 
Procedures for Tendering If you wish to accept the applicable exchange offer and your Original Notes are held by a custodial entity such as a bank, broker, dealer, trust company or other nominee, you must instruct this custodial entity to tender your Original Notes on your behalf pursuant to the procedures of the custodial entity. If your Original Notes are registered in your name, you must complete, sign and date the accompanying letter of transmittal, or a facsimile of the letter of transmittal, according to the instructions contained in this prospectus and the letter of transmittal. You must also mail or otherwise deliver the letter of transmittal, or a facsimile of the letter of transmittal, together with the Original Notes and any other required documents, to the exchange agent at the address set forth on the cover page of the letter of transmittal.
 
Custodial entities that are participants in The Depository Trust Company, or “DTC,” may tender Original Notes through DTC’s Automated Tender Offer Program, or “ATOP,” which enables a custodial entity, and the beneficial owner on whose behalf the custodial entity is acting, to electronically agree to be bound by the letter of transmittal. A letter of transmittal need not accompany tenders effected through ATOP.
 
By signing, or agreeing to be bound by, the letter of transmittal, you will represent to us that, among other things:
 
• you are acquiring the Exchange Notes in the ordinary course of your business;

Table of Contents

 
• you are not engaged in, and do not intend to engage in, a distribution (within the meaning of the Securities Act) of the Exchange Notes;
 
• you have no arrangement or understanding with any person to participate in a distribution (within the meaning of the Securities Act) of the Exchange Notes;
 
• you are not an affiliate of the Company (within the meaning of Rule 405 under the Securities Act); and
 
• if you are a broker-dealer registered under the Exchange Act, you are participating in the applicable exchange offer for your own account and are exchanging Original Notes acquired as a result of market-making activities or other trading activities and you will deliver a prospectus in connection with any resale of the Exchange Notes.
 
See “Exchange Offers — Eligibility; Transferability.”
 
Guaranteed Delivery Procedures If you wish to tender your Original Notes, and time will not permit your required documents to reach the exchange agent by the expiration date, or the procedure for book-entry transfer cannot be completed on time, you may tender your Original Notes under the procedures described under “Exchange Offers — Guaranteed Delivery Procedures.”
 
Transferability Under existing interpretations of the Securities Act by the staff of the SEC contained in several no-action letters to third parties, and subject to the immediately following sentence, we believe that the Exchange Notes will generally be freely transferable by holders after the exchange offers without further compliance with the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act (subject to representations required to be made by each holder of Exchange Notes, as set forth above). However any holder of Original Notes who:
 
• is one of our “affiliates” (as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act),
 
• does not acquire the Exchange Notes in the ordinary course of business,
 
• distributes, intends to distribute, or has an arrangement or understanding with any person to distribute the Exchange Notes as part of the respective exchange offer, or
 
• is a broker-dealer who purchased Original Notes directly from us
 
will not be able to rely on the interpretations of the staff of the SEC, will not be permitted to tender Original Notes in the exchange offers and, in the absence of any exemption, must comply with the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act in connection with any resale of the notes.
 
Our belief is based on interpretations by the Staff of the SEC given to other, unrelated issuers in similar exchange offers. We cannot assure you that the SEC would make a similar interpretation with respect to

Table of Contents

these exchange offers. We will not be responsible for or indemnify you against any liability you may incur under the Securities Act.
 
Each broker-dealer that receives Exchange Notes for its own account under the exchange offers in exchange for Original Notes that were acquired by the broker-dealer as a result of market-making or other trading activity must acknowledge that it will deliver a prospectus in connection with any resale of the Exchange Notes. See “Plan of Distribution.”
 
See “Exchange Offers — Eligibility; Transferability.”
 
Consequences of Failure to Exchange Any Original Notes that are not tendered in the exchange offers, or that are not accepted in the exchange offers, will remain subject to the restrictions on transfer. Since the Original Notes have not been registered under the U.S. federal securities laws, you will not be able to offer or sell the Original Notes except under an exemption from the requirements of the Securities Act or unless the Original Notes are registered under the Securities Act. Upon the completion of the exchange offers, we will have no further obligations, except under limited circumstances, to provide for registration of the notes under the U.S. federal securities laws. See “Exchange Offers — Consequences of Failure to Tender.”
 
Use of Proceeds We will not receive any proceeds from the exchange of notes pursuant to the exchange offers. We will pay all expenses incident to the exchange offers.
 
Exchange Agent The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., is serving as the exchange agent for the exchange offers. See “Exchange Offers — Exchange Agent” for the address and telephone number of the exchange agent.

Absence of an Established Market for the Exchange Notes
The Exchange Notes generally are freely transferable but are also new securities for which there is not initially a market. We do not intend to list the Exchange Notes on any exchange or maintain a trading market for them. Accordingly, there can be no assurance as to the development or liquidity of any market for the Exchange Notes.
 
Recent Developments

Net earnings from continuing operations attributable to common stockholders totaled $134.3 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, compared to $66.6 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter.

SUMMARY HISTORICAL FINANCIAL DATA
 
The following tables set forth certain of our historical financial data. The statement of earnings data for the years ended December 31, 2007, 2008 and 2009 and the balance sheet data as of December 31, 2009 have been derived from our audited consolidated financial statements, which have been audited by KPMG LLP, independent registered public accounting firm, and which are incorporated by reference in this prospectus.
 
The statement of earnings data and the balance sheet data as of June 30, 2010 and for the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2010 have been derived from our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements incorporated by reference in this prospectus. Our unaudited financial statements have been prepared on a basis consistent with our audited consolidated financial statements, and, in the opinion of management, the historical unaudited statement of earnings and balance sheet data set forth below reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal and recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of our financial position and results of operations for those periods. The historical results of operations for any period are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any future period. The following information should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto and the information under the caption “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, and in our June 2010 10-Q, which reports have been incorporated by reference in this prospectus.

On July 2, 2008, we completed the spin-off of our former lender processing services segment into a separate publicly traded company, Lender Processing Services, Inc. (“LPS,” and the “LPS Spin-off”). For accounting purposes, the results of LPS are presented as discontinued operations. Accordingly all prior periods have been restated to present the results of FIS on a stand-alone basis and include the results of LPS up to July 1, 2008 as discontinued operations.

SUMMARY UNAUDITED PRO FORMA FINANCIAL DATA
 
The following tables set forth certain pro forma financial data. The summary unaudited pro forma financial data for the year ended December 31, 2009 have been derived from our consolidated financial statements, which have been audited by KPMG LLP, independent registered public accounting firm, and are incorporated by reference in this prospectus. The pro forma statement of earnings data for the six months ended June 30, 2010 have been derived from our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements incorporated by reference in this prospectus. The summary unaudited pro forma consolidated financial data gives effect to our recently completed purchase of 86.2 million shares of our common stock at a price of $29.00 per share (the “Tender Offer”), as if such purchase had occurred on January 1, 2009 for the condensed consolidated statements of earnings for the year ended December 31, 2009, and gives effect to the Metavante Acquisition as if it had occurred January 1, 2009. The summary unaudited pro forma consolidated financial data for the six months ended June 30, 2010 gives effect to the purchase of shares pursuant to the Tender Offer, as if such purchase had occurred on January 1, 2010 for the condensed consolidated statement of earnings and on June 30, 2010 for the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2010. Such pro forma data also assumes that the purchase of shares pursuant to the Tender Offer is financed with debt on the terms described in the footnotes to the tables below.
 
The following information should be read in conjunction with the information under the caption ‘‘— Summary Historical Financial Data” in this prospectus and the Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Information and the related notes thereto included in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on October 2, 2009, and with the consolidated financial statements of FIS and the related notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 and our June 2010 10-Q, which financial statements have been incorporated by reference in this prospectus. The summary unaudited pro forma financial data set forth below are presented for informational purposes only, should not be considered indicative of actual results of operations that would have been achieved had the Metavante Acquisition been consummated on the date indicated, and do not purport to be indicative of our results of operations for any future period. In addition, future results may vary significantly from the results reflected in such statements due to certain factors beyond our control. See “Risk Factors.”

RISK FACTORS
 
You should carefully consider the following risks and all of the other information included in or incorporated by reference in this prospectus, including the risk factors identified in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, and in our June 2010 10-Q, before deciding to exchange the Original Notes. The risks set out below and incorporated by reference in this prospectus are not the only risks we face. If any of these risks occurs, our business, financial condition and results of operations could be materially adversely affected. In such case, you may lose all or part of your investment.
 
Risks Related to the Exchange Notes and Exchange Offers
 
Our substantial indebtedness could adversely affect our financial condition or operating flexibility and prevent us from fulfilling our obligations under our outstanding indebtedness and the Exchange Notes.
 
After completion of the July 16, 2010 offerings of the Original Notes and issuance of Term Loan B as discussed in our June 2010 10-Q under the heading “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation — Financing,” we had total debt of approximately $5.3 billion. Our substantial indebtedness could have important consequences for you. For example, it could:
 
  •  make it difficult for us to satisfy our obligations with respect to the Exchange Notes or other outstanding indebtedness;
 
  •  increase our vulnerability to general adverse economic and industry conditions;
 
  •  require us to dedicate a portion of our cash flow from operations to payments on our indebtedness, thereby reducing the availability of cash flow to fund working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions and investments and other general corporate purposes;
 
  •  make it difficult for us to optimally capitalize and manage the cash flow for our businesses;
 
  •  limit our flexibility in planning for, or reacting to, changes in our businesses and the markets in which we operate;
 
  •  place us at a competitive disadvantage compared to our competitors that have less debt;
 
  •  limit, along with the financial and other restrictive covenants in our indebtedness, among other things, our ability to borrow additional funds or dispose of assets; and
 
  •  result in an event of default if we fail to satisfy our obligations under the Exchange Notes or other debt or fail to comply with the financial or other restrictive covenants contained in the indenture governing the Exchange Notes or our senior secured credit facility, which event of default could result in all of our debt becoming due and payable and could permit the lenders under our senior secured credit facility to foreclose on the assets securing such debt.
 
If future debt financing is not available to us when required or is not available on acceptable terms, we may be unable to grow our business, take advantage of business opportunities, respond to competitive pressures or refinance maturing debt, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our operating results and financial condition.
 
The covenants relating to the Exchange Notes and our senior secured credit facility are limited and do not prohibit us from incurring additional debt or taking other actions that could exacerbate the risks described in the preceding risk factor or otherwise negatively impact holders of the Exchange Notes.
 
We may be able to incur substantially more debt in the future. Although the indenture governing the Exchange Notes and the agreements governing our senior secured credit facility and other indebtedness each contain restrictions on our incurrence of additional indebtedness, these restrictions are subject to a number of qualifications and exceptions, and under certain circumstances, indebtedness incurred in compliance with these restrictions could be substantial. Also, the restrictions of the indenture do not prevent us from incurring obligations that do not constitute debt under the terms thereof. As of June 30, 2010, we had approximately

Table of Contents

$724.8 million of borrowing capacity available under our existing FIS credit facility and $145.0 million available for borrowing under the accounts receivable facility described in our June 2010 10-Q under the heading “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations — Financing.” To the extent new debt is added to our current levels, the risks described above could substantially increase.
 
Our holding company structure may impact your ability to receive payment on the Exchange Notes.
 
We are a holding company with no significant operations or material assets other than the capital stock of our subsidiaries. As a result, our ability to repay our indebtedness, including the Exchange Notes, is dependent on the generation of cash flow by our subsidiaries and their ability to make such cash available to us, by dividend, distribution, loan, debt repayment or otherwise. Unless they are guarantors of the Exchange Notes, our subsidiaries do not have any obligation to pay amounts due on the Exchange Notes or to make funds available for that purpose. In addition, our subsidiaries may not be able to, or be permitted to, make distributions to enable us to make payments in respect of our indebtedness, including the Exchange Notes. Each of our subsidiaries is a distinct legal entity, and, under certain circumstances, legal and contractual restrictions, as well as the financial condition and operating requirements of our subsidiaries, may limit our ability to obtain cash from our subsidiaries. Further, while the guarantors will unconditionally guarantee the Exchange Notes, such guarantees could be rendered unenforceable for the reasons described in “— A court could void our subsidiaries’ guarantees of the Exchange Notes under fraudulent transfer laws.”
 
Effective subordination of the Exchange Notes and the guarantees to substantially all of our existing and future secured debt and the existing and future secured debt of the guarantors may reduce amounts available for payment of the Exchange Notes and the guarantees.
 
The Exchange Notes and the guarantees are unsecured. Accordingly, the Exchange Notes will effectively rank junior to all of our secured obligations and, so long as the guarantees are in effect, a guarantor’s guarantees will effectively rank junior to all of that guarantor’s secured obligations, in each case, to the extent of the assets securing those obligations. In the event of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, or if payment under any secured obligation is accelerated, claims of any secured creditors for the assets securing the obligation will be prior to any claim of the holders of the Exchange Notes for these assets. After the claims of the secured creditors are satisfied, there may not be assets remaining to satisfy our obligations under the Exchange Notes or the guarantees. As of June 30, 2010, on a pro forma basis after giving effect to the issuance of the Term Loan B and repayment of the Metavante Term Loan as described in our June 2010 10-Q under the heading “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations — Financing,” we and our subsidiaries would have had $4,215.4 million in secured indebtedness, including $4,201.2 million under the FIS Credit Agreement and $14.2 million in capital lease obligations. The indenture governing the Exchange Notes permits us and our subsidiaries to incur additional secured debt under specified circumstances.
 
Effective subordination of the Exchange Notes and the guarantees to indebtedness of our existing and future non-guarantor subsidiaries may reduce amounts available for payment of the Exchange Notes and the guarantees.
 
The Exchange Notes and the guarantees will also be effectively subordinated to the unsecured indebtedness and other liabilities of our subsidiaries that are not guarantors and of those guarantors whose guarantees of the Exchange Notes are released or terminated. Except to the extent that we or a guarantor is a creditor with recognized claims against our other subsidiaries, all claims of creditors (including trade creditors) and holders of preferred stock, if any, of our other subsidiaries will have priority with respect to the assets of such subsidiaries over our and the guarantors’ claims (and therefore the claims of our creditors, including holders of the Exchange Notes). As of June 30, 2010, our subsidiaries (other than the guarantors) had approximately $507.0 million of liabilities (including $128.0 million of deferred revenue).

A court could void our subsidiaries’ guarantees of the Exchange Notes under fraudulent transfer laws.
 
Although the guarantees provide you with a direct claim against the assets of the subsidiary guarantors, under the federal bankruptcy laws and comparable provisions of state fraudulent transfer laws, a guarantee could be voided, or claims with respect to a guarantee could be subordinated to all other debts of that guarantor. In addition, a bankruptcy court could void (i.e., cancel) any payments by that guarantor pursuant to its guarantee and require those payments to be returned to the guarantor or to a fund for the benefit of the other creditors of the guarantor. Each guarantee will contain a provision intended to limit the guarantor’s liability to the maximum amount that it could incur without causing the incurrence of obligations under its guarantee to be a fraudulent transfer. This provision may not be effective to protect the guarantees from being voided under fraudulent transfer law, or may eliminate the guarantor’s obligations or reduce the guarantor’s obligations to an amount that effectively makes the guarantee worthless.
 
The bankruptcy court might take these actions if it found, among other things, that when a subsidiary guarantor executed its guarantee (or, in some jurisdictions, when it became obligated to make payments under its guarantee):
 
  •  such subsidiary guarantor received less than reasonably equivalent value or fair consideration for the incurrence of its guarantee; and
 
  •  such subsidiary guarantor:
 
  •  was (or was rendered) insolvent by the incurrence of the guarantee;
 
  •  was engaged or about to engage in a business or transaction for which its assets constituted unreasonably small capital to carry on its business;
 
  •  intended to incur, or believed that it would incur, obligations beyond its ability to pay as those obligations matured; or
 
  •  was a defendant in an action for money damages, or had a judgment for money damages docketed against it and, in either case, after final judgment, the judgment was unsatisfied.
 
A bankruptcy court would likely find that a subsidiary guarantor received less than fair consideration or reasonably equivalent value for its guarantee to the extent that it did not receive direct or indirect benefit from the issuance of the Exchange Notes. A bankruptcy court could also void a guarantee if it found that the subsidiary issued its guarantee with actual intent to hinder, delay or defraud creditors.
 
Although courts in different jurisdictions measure solvency differently, in general, an entity would be deemed insolvent if the sum of its debts, including contingent and unliquidated debts, exceeds the fair value of its assets, or if the present fair salable value of its assets is less than the amount that would be required to pay the expected liability on its debts, including contingent and unliquidated debts, as they become due.
 
If a court voided a guarantee, it could require that noteholders return any amounts previously paid under such guarantee. If any guarantee were voided, noteholders would retain their rights against us and any other subsidiary guarantors, although there is no assurance that those entities’ assets would be sufficient to pay the Exchange Notes in full.
 
The guarantees will be released under certain circumstances.
 
On the issue date, the Exchange Notes will be guaranteed by any of our subsidiaries that is a borrower under or is a guarantor of obligations under our amended FIS credit facility. Upon the occurrence of certain events, including if the obligations of any guarantor as a borrower and guarantor under such credit agreements terminate or are released, such guarantor’s guarantee of the Exchange Notes will also be released. See “Description of Exchange Notes — Guarantees.” In such event, the risks applicable to our subsidiaries that are not guarantors upon consummation of the offering will also be applicable to such guarantor.

Our foreign subsidiaries may become borrowers under our existing credit agreement without guaranteeing the Exchange Notes.
 
Under the terms of our existing credit agreement, we may designate foreign subsidiaries as borrowers, and such foreign subsidiaries would not be required to guarantee the Exchange Notes. As of the time of these offerings, each of our subsidiaries that is a borrower or a guarantor under our existing credit agreement is a domestic subsidiary, and will be a guarantor guaranteeing the Exchange Notes. However, if a foreign subsidiary is designated as a borrower under our credit agreement and borrows under the credit agreement, the Exchange Notes and the guarantees will be effectively subordinated to the claims of the lenders under the credit agreement with respect to such borrowings and with respect to the assets of such foreign subsidiary.
 
If on any date following the issuance of the Exchange Notes the Exchange Notes of either series have investment grade ratings, many of the restrictive covenants will cease to be in effect.
 
If on any date following the issuance of the Exchange Notes, the Exchange Notes of either series are rated at least BBB-(or the equivalent) by S&P and at least Baa3 (or the equivalent) by Moody’s and certain other conditions are met, many of the restrictive covenants in the indenture will cease to be in effect with respect to such series of notes. We cannot assure you that the Exchange Notes will ever be rated investment grade or that, if they are, that they will maintain such ratings. Termination of these covenants would allow us to engage in certain actions that would not be permitted while these covenants are in effect and any such actions that we take after the covenants are terminated will be permitted even if the Exchange Notes of the applicable series subsequently fail to maintain investment grade ratings. See “Description of Exchange Notes — Certain Covenants.”
 
The credit ratings assigned to the Exchange Notes may not reflect all risks of an investment in the Exchange Notes.
 
The credit ratings assigned to the Exchange Notes reflect the rating agencies’ assessments of our ability to make payments on the Exchange Notes when due. Consequently, actual or anticipated changes in these credit ratings will generally affect the market value of the Exchange Notes. These credit ratings, however, may not reflect the potential impact of risks related to structure, market or other factors related to the value of the Exchange Notes.
 
We may not be able to repurchase the Exchange Notes upon a change of control.
 
We may not be able to repurchase the Exchange Notes upon a change of control because we may not have sufficient funds. Upon certain kinds of changes of control, holders of the Exchange Notes may require us to make offers to purchase the Exchange Notes for cash at a purchase price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest. Our failure to purchase tendered notes upon the occurrence of such changes of control would result in an event of default under the indenture governing the Exchange Notes and a cross-default under the agreements governing certain of our other indebtedness which may result in the acceleration of such indebtedness requiring us to repay that indebtedness immediately. If such a change of control were to occur, we may not have sufficient funds to repay any such accelerated indebtedness, which may give the lenders under our senior secured credit facility the ability to foreclose on the assets securing such debt. In addition, you may not be able to require us to repurchase the Exchange Notes under the change of control provisions in the indenture in the event of certain important corporate events, such as a leveraged recapitalization (which would increase the level of our indebtedness, potentially resulting in a downgrade of our credit ratings, thereby negatively affecting the value of the Exchange Notes), reorganization, restructuring, merger or other similar transaction, unless such transaction constitutes a “change of control” under the indenture. Such a transaction may not involve a change in voting power or beneficial ownership or, even if it does, may not involve a change that constitutes a “change of control” that would trigger our obligation to repurchase the Exchange Notes. Therefore, if an event occurs that does not constitute a “change of control,” as defined in the indenture, we will not be required to make offers to repurchase the Exchange Notes and you may be required to continue to hold your Exchange Notes despite the event. See “Description of Exchange Notes — Change of Control.”

If an active trading market does not develop for the Exchange Notes, you may be unable to sell the Exchange Notes or to sell them at a price you deem sufficient.
 
The Exchange Notes will be securities for which there is no established trading market. We do not intend to list the Exchange Notes on any exchange or maintain a trading market for them. We give no assurance as to:
 
  •  the liquidity of any trading market that may develop;
 
  •  the ability of holders to sell their Exchange Notes; or
 
  •  the price at which holders would be able to sell their Exchange Notes.
 
Even if a trading market develops, the Exchange Notes may trade at higher or lower prices than their principal amount or purchase price, depending on many factors, including:
 
  •  prevailing interest rates;
 
  •  the number of holders of the Exchange Notes;
 
  •  the interest of securities dealers in making a market for the Exchange Notes;
 
  •  the market for similar debt securities; and
 
  •  our financial performance.
 
You may not receive the Exchange Notes in the exchange offers if the exchange offer procedures are not properly followed.
 
We will issue the Exchange Notes in exchange for your Original Notes only if you properly tender the Original Notes before expiration of the exchange offers. Neither we nor the exchange agent are under any duty to give notification of defects or irregularities with respect to the tenders of the Original Notes for exchange. If you are the beneficial holder of Original Notes that are held through your broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee, and you wish to tender such notes in the exchange offers, you should promptly contact the person through whom your Original Notes are held and instruct that person to tender on your behalf.
 
Broker-dealers may become subject to the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act and any profit on the resale of the Exchange Notes may be deemed to be underwriting compensation under the Securities Act.
 
Any broker-dealer that acquires Exchange Notes in the exchange offers for its own account in exchange for Original Notes which it acquired through market-making or other trading activities must acknowledge that it will comply with the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act in connection with any resale transaction by that broker-dealer. Any profit on the resale of the Exchange Notes and any commission or concessions received by a broker-dealer may be deemed to be underwriting compensation under the Securities Act.
 
If you do not exchange your Original Notes, they may be difficult to resell.
 
If you do not exchange your Original Notes for Exchange Notes in the exchange offers, the Original Notes you hold will continue to be subject to the existing transfer restrictions described in the legend on the global security representing the outstanding Original Notes. These restrictions on transfer exist because we issued the Original Notes pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Original Notes that are not exchanged for Exchange Notes will remain restricted securities. Accordingly, those Original Notes may not be offered or sold, unless registered under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. Because we anticipate that most holders of Original Notes will elect to participate in the exchange offers, we expect that the liquidity of


21


Table of Contents

the market for the Original Notes after the completion of the exchange offers may be substantially limited. Any Original Notes tendered and exchanged in the exchange offers will reduce the aggregate principal amount of the Original Notes not exchanged.
 
USE OF PROCEEDS
 
We will not receive cash proceeds from the issuance of the Exchange Notes in connection with the exchange offers. In consideration for issuing the Exchange Notes in exchange for Original Notes as described in this prospectus, we will receive Original Notes of the respective series of equal principal amount. The Original Notes surrendered in exchange for the Exchange Notes will be retired and cancelled. We will pay all expenses incident to the exchange offers.

DESCRIPTION OF THE EXCHANGE NOTES
 
On July 16, 2010 we issued in private placements (i) $600,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 7.625% senior notes due 2017 and (ii) $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 7.875% senior notes due 2020. The Original Notes were not registered under the Securities Act and were issued, and the Exchange Notes will be issued, under an Indenture, dated as of July 16, 2010 (the “Indenture”), among FIS, the Guarantors and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as Trustee for both series of Notes. For purposes of this section of this prospectus, references to the “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our” or similar terms refer solely to Fidelity National Information Services, Inc., and not its subsidiaries. Unless the context otherwise requires, the term “Notes” refers collectively to the Exchange Notes and the Original Notes; the term “2017 Notes” refers collectively to the 2017 Original Notes and the 2017 Exchange Notes; and the term “2020 Notes” refers collectively to the 2020 Original Notes and the 2020 Exchange Notes.
 
The terms of the Exchange Notes are identical in all material respects with the respective series of Original Notes for which they have been exchanged, except that:
 
  •  the Exchange Notes have been registered under the U.S. federal securities laws and will not bear any legend restricting their transfer;
 
  •  the Exchange Notes bear a different CUSIP number from the Original Notes;
 
  •  the Exchange Notes generally will not be subject to transfer restrictions and will not be entitled to registration rights; and
 
  •  the holders of the Exchange Notes will not be entitled to earn additional interest under circumstances relating to our registration obligations under the registration rights agreement.
 
The Exchange Notes will evidence the same debt as the Original Notes. Holders of Exchange Notes will be entitled to the benefits of the indenture.
 
The statements under this caption relating to the Indenture and the Notes are summaries and are not a complete description thereof, and where reference is made to particular provisions, such provisions, including the definitions of certain terms, are qualified in their entirety by reference to all of the provisions of the Indenture and the Notes and those terms made part of the Indenture by the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended (the “Trust Indenture Act”). Because this is a summary, it may not contain all of the information that is important to you. You should read the Indenture in its entirety. The definitions of certain capitalized terms used in the following summary are set forth below under “— Certain Definitions.” Unless otherwise indicated, references under this caption to Sections or Articles are references to sections and articles of the Indenture. Copies of the Indenture are available upon request from the Company.
 
General
 
In the exchange offers, we are offering to exchange (i) up to $600,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of our 2017 Exchange Notes for an equal principal amount of the 2017 Original Notes and (ii) up to $500,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of our 2020 Exchange Notes for an equal principal amount of the 2020 Original Notes. Subject to the limitations described below under the covenant “Limitation on Incurrence of Debt,” the Company may issue additional notes (the “Additional Notes”) of either series under the Indenture having the same terms as such series of Notes except that interest will accrue on any Additional Notes from their date of issuance. The Exchange Notes of a particular series, together with any Original Notes of such series that remain outstanding after the respective exchange offer and any Additional Notes of such series subsequently issued under the Indenture, will be treated as a single class for all purposes of the Indenture, including, without limitation, waivers, amendments, redemptions and offers to purchase.
 
Principal, Maturity and Interest
 
Interest on the 2017 Notes will be payable at 7.625% per annum and interest on the 2020 Notes will be payable at 7.875% per annum. Interest on the Notes will be payable semi-annually in cash in arrears on January 15 and July 15, commencing on January 15, 2011. The Company will make each interest payment to


23


Table of Contents

the Holders of record of the Notes on the immediately preceding January 1 and July 1. Interest on the Notes will accrue from the most recent date to which interest has been paid or, if no interest has been paid, from and including the Issue Date. Interest will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year comprised of twelve 30-day months.
 
Principal of and premium, if any, and interest on the Notes will be payable, and the Notes will be exchangeable and transferable, at the office or agency of the Company maintained for such purposes, which, initially, will be the corporate trust office of the Trustee in New York, New York; provided, however, that payment of interest with respect to either series of Notes may be made at the option of the Company by check mailed to the Person entitled thereto as shown on the security register or in accordance with the procedures of The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) for global book-entry Notes. The Notes will be issued only in fully registered form without coupons, in denominations of $2,000 and any integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof. No service charge will be made for any registration of transfer, exchange or redemption of the Notes, except in certain circumstances for any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection therewith.
 
Guarantees
 
The Notes and any and all amounts due under the Indenture will be guaranteed, on a full, joint and several basis, by the Guarantors pursuant to a guarantee (the “Note Guarantees”). On the Issue Date, each of our wholly owned domestic Subsidiaries that guarantees our obligations under the Credit Agreement will be Guarantors. None of our Foreign Subsidiaries will guarantee the Notes. The Note Guarantees will be senior obligations of each Guarantor and will rank equal with all existing and future senior Debt of such Guarantor and senior to all subordinated Debt of such Guarantor. The Note Guarantees are effectively subordinated to any secured Debt of such Guarantor to the extent of the assets securing such Debt.
 
The Indenture provides that the obligations of a Guarantor under its applicable Note Guarantee will be limited to the maximum amount as will result in the obligations of such Guarantor under the Note Guarantee not to be deemed to constitute a fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer under federal or state law. By virtue of this limitation, a Guarantor’s obligations under its Note Guarantees could be significantly less than amounts payable with respect to the Notes, or a Guarantor may have effectively no obligation under its Note Guarantees. See “Risk Factors — Risk Factors Related to the Exchange Notes and Exchange Offers.”
 
On the Issue Date, all of our Subsidiaries will be “Restricted Subsidiaries.” However, under the circumstances described below under the subheading “— Certain Covenants — Limitation on Creation of Unrestricted Subsidiaries,” any of our Subsidiaries may be designated as “Unrestricted Subsidiaries.” Unrestricted Subsidiaries will not be subject to many of the restrictive covenants in the Indenture and will not guarantee the Notes. Claims of creditors of non-guarantor Subsidiaries, including trade creditors, secured creditors and creditors holding Debt and guarantees issued by those Subsidiaries, and claims of preferred stockholders (if any) of those Subsidiaries generally will have priority with respect to the assets and earnings of those Subsidiaries over the claims of creditors of the Company, including Holders of the Notes.
 
The Note Guarantee of a Guarantor with respect to a series of Notes will terminate and be discharged and of no further force and effect and the applicable Guarantor will be automatically and unconditionally released from all of its obligations thereunder:
 
(1) concurrently with any direct or indirect sale or other disposition (including by way of consolidation, merger or otherwise) of the Guarantor or the sale or disposition (including by way of consolidation, merger or otherwise) of all or substantially all the assets of the Guarantor (other than to the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary) as permitted by the Indenture;
 
(2) upon the designation in accordance with the Indenture of the Guarantor as an Unrestricted Subsidiary;
 
(3) at any time that such Guarantor is released from all of its obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations that may survive such release) under all of its Guarantees of all Debt of the


24


Table of Contents

Company under the Credit Facilities except a discharge by or as a result of payment under such Guarantee;
 
(4) upon the merger or consolidation of any Guarantor with and into the Company or a Guarantor that is the surviving Person in such merger or consolidation, or upon the liquidation of such Guarantor following or contemporaneously with the transfer of all of its assets to the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary, all in accordance with the provisions of the Indenture;
 
(5) upon the defeasance or discharge of the Notes of such series, as provided in the Indenture or upon satisfaction and discharge of the Indenture; or
 
(6) upon the prior consent of the Holders of all the Notes of such series then outstanding.
 
Not all of our Subsidiaries will guarantee the Notes. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, the non-Guarantor Subsidiaries represented less than 16% of the consolidated net income of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries.
 
Ranking
 
The Notes will be general unsecured obligations of the Company. As a result, the Notes will:
 
  •  rank equally in right of payment with all existing and future senior Debt of the Company;
 
  •  be effectively junior to all secured Debt of the Company to the extent of the value of the assets securing such Debt;
 
  •  be effectively junior to all existing and future Debt and other liabilities, including trade payables, of the Company’s non-Guarantor Subsidiaries (other than any Debt owed to the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary, if any), including the Company’s Foreign Subsidiaries and any Unrestricted Subsidiaries; and
 
  •  rank senior in right of payment to all of the Company’s future Debt that is by its terms expressly subordinated to the Notes.
 
Each Note Guarantee is and will be a general unsecured obligation of each Guarantor. As such, each Note Guarantee will:
 
  •  rank equally in right of payment with all existing and future senior Debt of the Guarantors;
 
  •  rank senior in right of payment to all existing and future Debt of the Guarantors, if any, that are by their terms expressly subordinated to such Guarantor’s Note Guarantee; and
 
  •  be effectively subordinated to all secured Debt of such Guarantors, to the extent of the value of the Guarantors’ assets securing such Debt.
 
As of June 30, 2010, on a pro forma basis after giving effect to the issuance of the Term Loan B and the Notes and repayment of the Metavante Term Loan as described in our June 2010 10-Q under the heading “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations — Financing,” the Company and its Subsidiaries would have had total Debt of approximately $5,331.9 million, of which (i) approximately $1,100 million is senior Debt represented by the Notes offered hereby; (ii) approximately $4,201.2 million is senior secured Debt issued and outstanding under the Credit Facility, which includes outstanding revolving credit loans in the approximate amount of $308.9 million out of an aggregate revolving credit commitment of $1,033.7 million (such Credit Facility also has provisions that contemplate the possible addition of a further $750 million in loan commitments subject to obtaining such additional commitments); (iii) Capital Lease Obligations in the aggregate amount of approximately $14.2 million; and (iv) approximately $16.5 million in other debt. In addition, the Company has in place, through one of its wholly owned Subsidiaries, an accounts receivable securitization facility, which, as of June 30, 2010, had no outstanding obligations, but which had committed funding availability of $145 million (with provisions that contemplate the possible addition of a further $55 million in funding availability subject to obtaining additional funding commitments). As of June 30, 2010, the Company’s Foreign Subsidiaries had outstanding Debt in the


25


Table of Contents

approximate amount of $16.6 million. Although the Indenture contains limitations on the amount of additional Debt that the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries may incur, the amount of additional Debt could be substantial. See “— Certain Covenants — Limitation on Incurrence of Debt” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations — Financing,” in our June 2010 10-Q.
 
In addition, substantially all of the operations of the Company are conducted through its Subsidiaries. The Company’s Foreign Subsidiaries will not guarantee the Notes. Although the Indenture limits the Incurrence of Debt and Redeemable Capital Interests of Restricted Subsidiaries, the limitation is subject to a number of significant exceptions. Moreover, the Indenture does not impose any limitation on the incurrence by Restricted Subsidiaries of liabilities that are not considered Debt or Redeemable Capital Interests under the Indenture. See “— Certain Covenants — Limitation on Incurrence of Debt.”
 
Sinking Fund
 
There are no mandatory sinking fund payment obligations with respect to the Notes.
 
Optional Redemption

Table of Contents

No 2017 Notes of $2,000 or less shall be redeemed in part and no redemption shall result in a Holder holding a 2017 Note of less than $2,000. Notices of redemption shall be sent to DTC, in the case of 2017 Notes issued in global book-entry form, or shall be mailed by first class mail, in the case of certificated 2017 Notes (and, to the extent permitted by applicable procedures or regulations, electronically) at least 30 days (or such shorter period as is acceptable to the Trustee) before the redemption date to each Holder of 2017 Notes to be redeemed at its registered address.

In the case of global 2017 Notes issued in book-entry form, the outstanding balance of any such global 2017 Note shall be adjusted by the Trustee to reflect such redemption. On and after the redemption date, interest ceases to accrue on 2017 Notes or portions of them called for redemption.
 
The Company may at any time, and from time to time, purchase 2017 Notes in the open market or otherwise, at different market prices, subject to compliance with applicable securities laws.

Repurchase at the Option of Holders
 
Change of Control
 
Each series of Notes provides that if a Change of Control occurs, unless the Company has previously or concurrently mailed a redemption notice with respect to all the outstanding Notes of such series as described above under the caption “— Optional Redemption,” the Company will make a written offer to purchase all of the Notes of such series pursuant to the offer described below (the “Change of Control Offer”) at a Change of Control Purchase Price in cash equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus, in each case, accrued and unpaid interest and Additional Interest, if any, to the date of purchase, subject to the right of Holders of record of such series of Notes on the relevant record date to receive interest due on the relevant interest payment date. The Change of Control Offer will be sent by the Company, in the case of global book-entry Notes, through the facilities of DTC, and, in the case of certificated Notes, by first class mail, postage prepaid, to each Holder at his address appearing in the security register on the date of the Change of Control Offer, offering to purchase up to the aggregate principal amount of Notes of the applicable series set forth in such Change of Control Offer at the purchase price set forth in such Change of Control Offer (as determined pursuant to the Indenture). Unless otherwise required by applicable law, the Change of Control Offer shall specify an expiration date (the “Change of Control Expiration Date”) which shall be, subject to any contrary requirements of applicable law, not less than 30 days or more than 60 days after the date of mailing of such Change of Control Offer and a settlement date (the “Change of Control Payment Date”) for purchase of Notes of the applicable series within five business days after the Expiration Date. The Company shall notify the Trustee at least 15 days (or such shorter period as is acceptable to the Trustee), in the case of global book-entry Notes, prior to sending the Change of Control Offer through the facilities of DTC, and, in the case of certificated Notes, prior to the mailing of the Change of Control Offer of the Company’s obligation to make a Change of Control Offer, and the Change of Control Offer shall be sent electronically or mailed by the Company or, at the Company’s request, by the Trustee in the name and at the expense of the Company. The Change of Control Offer shall contain all instructions and materials necessary to enable such Holders to tender Notes of the applicable series pursuant to the Change of Control Offer. The Change of Control Offer shall also state:
 
(a) the Section of the Indenture pursuant to which the Change of Control Offer is being made;
 
(b) the Change of Control Expiration Date and the Change of Control Payment Date;
 
(c) the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes of the applicable series offered to be purchased pursuant to the Change of Control Offer (including, if less than 100%, the manner by which such amount has been determined pursuant to Indenture covenants requiring the Change of Control Offer) (the “Change of Control Purchase Amount”);


28


Table of Contents

(d) the purchase price to be paid by the Company for Notes of the applicable series accepted for payment (as specified pursuant to the Indenture) (the “Change of Control Purchase Price”);
 
(e) that the Holder may tender all or any portion of the Notes of the applicable series registered in the name of such Holder and that any portion of a Note of the applicable series tendered must be tendered in integral multiples of $1,000 and that, after a tender in part, no Holder may hold a Note of less than $2,000;
 
(f) the place or places where Notes of the applicable series are to be surrendered for tender pursuant to the Change of Control Offer, if applicable;
 
(g) that, unless the Company defaults in making such purchase, any Note of the applicable series accepted for purchase pursuant to the Change of Control Offer will cease to accrue interest on and after the Change of Control Purchase Date, but that any Note of such series not tendered or tendered but not purchased by the Company pursuant to the Change of Control Offer will continue to accrue interest at the same rate;
 
(h) that, on the Change of Control Purchase Date, the Change of Control Purchase Price will become due and payable upon each Note of the applicable series accepted for payment pursuant to the Change of Control Offer;
 
(i) that each Holder electing to tender a Note of the applicable series pursuant to the Change of Control Offer will be required to surrender such Note or cause such Note to be surrendered at the place or places set forth in the Change of Control Offer prior to the close of business on the Change of Control Expiration Date (such Note being, if the Company or the Trustee so requires, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Company and the Trustee duly executed by, the Holder thereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing);
 
(j) that Holders will be entitled to withdraw all or any portion of Notes of the applicable series tendered if the Company (or its paying agent) receives, not later than the close of business on the Change of Control Expiration Date, a facsimile transmission or letter setting forth the name of the Holder, the aggregate principal amount of the Notes of such series the Holder tendered, the certificate numbers of the Notes of the applicable series the Holder tendered and a statement that such Holder is withdrawing all or a stated portion of his tender;
 
(k) that (i) if Notes of the applicable series having an aggregate principal amount less than or equal to the Change of Control Purchase Amount are duly tendered and not withdrawn pursuant to the Change of Control Offer, the Company shall purchase all such Notes and (ii) if Notes of the applicable series having an aggregate principal amount in excess of the Change of Control Purchase Amount are tendered and not withdrawn pursuant to the Change of Control Offer, the Company shall purchase Notes of such series having an aggregate principal amount equal to the Change of Control Purchase Amount on a pro rata basis (with such adjustments as may be deemed appropriate so that only Notes in denominations of $2,000 principal amount or integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof shall be purchased); and
 
(l) if applicable, that, in the case of any Holder whose Note is purchased only in part, the Company shall execute, and the Trustee shall authenticate and deliver to the Holder of such Note without service charge, a new Note or Notes of the applicable series, of any authorized denomination as requested by such Holder, in the aggregate principal amount equal to and in exchange for the unpurchased portion of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes of such series so tendered.
 
A Change of Control Offer shall be deemed to have been made by the Company with respect to a particular series of Notes if (i) within 60 days following the date of the consummation of a transaction or series of transactions that constitutes a Change of Control, the Company commences a Change of Control Offer for all outstanding Notes of such series at the Change of Control Purchase Price (provided that the running of such 60-day period shall be suspended during any period when the commencement of such Change of Control Offer is delayed or suspended by reason of any court’s or governmental authority’s review of or ruling on any materials being employed by the Company to effect such Change of Control Offer, so long as


29


Table of Contents

the Company has used and continues to use its commercially reasonable efforts to make and conclude such Change of Control Offer promptly) and (ii) all Notes of such series properly tendered pursuant to the Change of Control Offer are purchased on the terms of such Change of Control Offer.
 
In addition, a Change of Control Offer may be made in advance of a Change of Control, conditional upon such Change of Control, if a definitive agreement is in place for the Change of Control at the time of launching the Change of Control Offer.
 
The phrase “all or substantially all,” as used in the definition of “Change of Control,” has not been interpreted under New York law (which is the governing law of the Indenture) to represent a specific quantitative test. As a consequence, in the event the Holders of the Notes of a particular series elected to exercise their rights under the Indenture and the Company elects to contest such election, there could be no assurance how a court interpreting New York law would interpret such phrase. As a result, it may be unclear as to whether a Change of Control has occurred with respect to a particular series of Notes and whether a Holder of Notes of such series may require the Company to make a Change of Control Offer with respect to the Notes of such series as described above.
 
The provisions of the Indenture may not afford Holders protection in the event of a highly leveraged transaction, reorganization, restructuring, merger or similar transaction affecting the Company that may adversely affect Holders, if such transaction is not the type of transaction included within the definition of Change of Control. A transaction involving the management of the Company or its Affiliates, or a transaction involving a recapitalization of the Company, will result in a Change of Control only if it is the type of transaction specified in such definition. The definition of Change of Control with respect to a particular series of Notes may be amended or modified with the written consent of the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of outstanding Notes of such series. See “— Amendment, Supplement and Waiver.”
 
The Company will comply with the requirements of Rule 14e-1 under the Exchange Act and any other laws and regulations thereunder to the extent such laws or regulations are applicable in connection with the repurchase of either series of Notes pursuant to a Change of Control Offer. To the extent that the provisions of any such laws or regulations conflict with the provisions of the Indenture, the Company will comply with the applicable laws and regulations and shall not be deemed to have breached its obligations described in the Indenture by virtue thereof.
 
The Company will not be required to make a Change of Control Offer with respect to a particular series of Notes upon a Change of Control if (i) a third party makes such Change of Control Offer contemporaneously with or upon a Change of Control in the manner, at the times and otherwise in compliance with the requirements of the Indenture and purchases all Notes of such series validly tendered and not withdrawn under such Change of Control Offer or (ii) a notice of redemption has been given pursuant to the Indenture as described above under the caption “— Optional Redemption.”
 
The Company’s ability to pay cash to the Holders of Notes upon a Change of Control may be limited by the Company’s then existing financial resources. There can be no assurance that sufficient funds will be available when necessary to make the required purchase of the Notes. Further, under the Credit Agreement, certain changes in ownership of the Company constitute a default (which default may occur prior to such changes in ownership constituting a Change of Control under the terms of the Indenture). Future agreements of the Company with respect to other Debt may contain similar provisions or provisions prohibiting or restricting the actions that constitute a Change of Control. If the exercise by the Holders of Notes of either series of their right to require the Company to repurchase the Notes of such series upon a Change of Control occurred at the same time as an event under one or more of the Company’s other Debt agreements that caused an acceleration of such Debt, the Company’s ability to pay cash to the Holders of Notes of such series upon a repurchase may be further limited by the Company’s then existing financial resources. See “Risk Factors — Risks Related to the Exchange Notes and Exchange Offers.”
 
Even if sufficient funds were otherwise available, the terms of the Credit Agreement prohibit the Company’s prepayment of Notes of either series before their scheduled maturity unless the Company is in pro forma compliance with the financial covenants contained in the Credit Agreement and no event of default


30


Table of Contents

exists thereunder. Consequently, if the Company is not able to satisfy such conditions or obtain requisite consents, the Company will be unable to fulfill its repurchase obligations, resulting in a Default with respect to such series of Notes under the Indenture. Future agreements of the Company with respect to other Debt may contain similar provisions or provisions prohibiting prepayment of the Notes.
 
Asset Sales
 
The Company will not, and will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to, consummate, directly or indirectly, an Asset Sale, unless:
 
(a) the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary, as the case may be, receives consideration at the time of such Asset Sale at least equal to the Fair Market Value of the assets sold or otherwise disposed of; and
 
(b) except in the case of a Permitted Asset Swap, at least 75% of the consideration therefor received by the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary, as the case may be, is in the form of cash or Eligible Cash Equivalents; provided that the amount of
 
(1) any liabilities (as reflected in the Company’s or such Restricted Subsidiary’s most recent balance sheet or in the footnotes thereto, or if Incurred or accrued subsequent to the date of such balance sheet, such liabilities that would have been shown on the Company’s or such Restricted Subsidiary’s balance sheet or in the footnotes thereto if such Incurrence or accrual had taken place on the date of such balance sheet, as determined by the Company) of the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary, other than liabilities that are by their terms subordinated to the Notes, that are assumed by the transferee of any such assets and for which the Company and all of its Restricted Subsidiaries have been validly released by all creditors in writing,
 
(2) any securities, notes or other obligations or assets received by the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary from such transferee that are converted by the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary into cash (to the extent of the cash received) within 720 days following the closing of such Asset Sale, and
 
(3) any Designated Non-Cash Consideration received by the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary in such Asset Sale having an aggregate Fair Market Value, taken together with all other Designated Non-Cash Consideration received pursuant to this clause (3) that is at that time outstanding, not to exceed 10% of the Total Assets of the Company and its Subsidiaries at the time of the receipt of such Designated Non-Cash Consideration, with the Fair Market Value of each item of Designated Non-Cash Consideration being measured at the time received and without giving effect to subsequent changes in value,
 
shall be deemed to be cash for purposes of this provision and for no other purpose.
 
Within twelve months after the receipt of any Net Proceeds of any Asset Sale, the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary, at its option, may apply the Net Proceeds from such Asset Sale,
 
(a) to permanently reduce:
 
(1) obligations under the Credit Facility, or under any other senior Debt which is secured Debt permitted by the Indenture (and, to the extent the obligations being reduced constitute revolving credit obligations, to correspondingly reduce commitments with respect thereto); or
 
(2) Debt of a Restricted Subsidiary that is not a Guarantor, other than Debt owed to the Company or another Restricted Subsidiary (or any affiliate thereof); or
 
(b) to make an Asset Sale Offer to all Holders of the Notes in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Indenture; or
 
(c) to acquire all or substantially all of the assets of a Similar Business, or a majority of the Voting Stock of another person that thereupon becomes a Restricted Subsidiary engaged in a Similar Business, or to make


31


Table of Contents

capital expenditures or otherwise acquire or improve assets that are being used or are to be used in a Similar Business, provided that, in the case of this clause (c), a binding commitment (which may be subject to customary conditions) entered into within twelve months after receipt of such Net Proceeds shall be treated as a permitted application of the Net Proceeds from the date of such commitment so long as the Company, or such other Restricted Subsidiary enters into such commitment with the good faith expectation that such Net Proceeds will be applied to satisfy such commitment within six months after the end of such twelve month period (an “Acceptable Commitment”).
 
Any Net Proceeds from Asset Sales that are not invested or applied as provided and within the time period described in the first sentence of the immediately preceding paragraph will be deemed to constitute “Excess Proceeds.” When the aggregate amount of Excess Proceeds exceeds $50 million, the Company shall make an offer to all Holders of the Notes, and, if required (or, at the Company’s election, if permitted) by the terms of any senior Debt, to the holders of any such senior Debt (an “Asset Sale Offer”), to purchase the maximum aggregate principal amount of the Notes and such senior Debt that is a minimum of $2,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof that may be purchased out of the Excess Proceeds at an offer price in cash in an amount equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest and Additional Interest, if any, to the date fixed for the closing of such offer, in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Indenture. The Company will commence an Asset Sale Offer with respect to Excess Proceeds within 30 days after the date that Excess Proceeds exceed $50 million by mailing the notice required pursuant to the terms of the Indenture, with a copy to the Trustee.
 
To the extent that the aggregate amount of Notes and any other senior Debt tendered pursuant to an Asset Sale Offer is less than the Excess Proceeds, the Company may use any remaining Excess Proceeds for general corporate purposes, subject to other covenants contained in the Indenture. If the aggregate principal amount of Notes or the senior Debt surrendered by such holders thereof exceeds the amount of Excess Proceeds, the Trustee shall select the Notes and the agent for such other senior Debt, as applicable, shall select such other senior Debt to be purchased by lot, pro rata or by any other method customarily authorized by clearing systems (so long as an authorized denomination results therefrom) based on the accreted value or principal amount of the Notes or such other senior Debt tendered. Upon completion of any such Asset Sale Offer, the amount of Excess Proceeds shall be reset at zero. Additionally, the Company may, at its option, make an Asset Sale Offer using proceeds from any Asset Sale at any time after consummation of such Asset Sale; provided that such Asset Sale Offer shall be in an aggregate amount of not less than $50 million. Upon consummation of such Asset Sale Offer, any Net Proceeds not required to be used to purchase Notes or such other senior Debt shall not be deemed Excess Proceeds.
 
Pending the final application of any Net Proceeds pursuant to this covenant, the holder of such Net Proceeds may apply such Net Proceeds temporarily to reduce Debt outstanding under a revolving credit facility or otherwise invest such Net Proceeds in any manner not prohibited by the Indenture.
 
The Company will comply with the requirements of Rule 14e-1 under the Exchange Act and any other laws and regulations thereunder to the extent such laws or regulations are applicable in connection with the repurchase of the Notes pursuant to an Asset Sale Offer. To the extent that the provisions of any such laws or regulations conflict with the provisions of the Indenture, the Company will comply with the applicable laws and regulations and shall not be deemed to have breached its obligations described in the Indenture by virtue thereof.
 
Certain Covenants
 
Set forth below are summaries of certain covenants contained in the Indenture. If on any date following the Issue Date (i) the Notes of either series have Investment Grade Ratings from both of the Rating Agencies, and (ii) no Default has occurred and is continuing under the Indenture (the occurrence of the events described in the foregoing clauses (i) and (ii) being collectively referred to as a “Covenant Termination Event”), the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries will no longer be subject to the following covenants with respect to such series of Notes (collectively, the “Terminated Covenants”):
 
(1) “— Limitation on Incurrence of Debt”;


32


Table of Contents

(2) “— Limitation on Restricted Payments”;
 
(3) “— Limitation on Dividend and Other Payment Restrictions Affecting Restricted Subsidiaries”;
 
(4) “— Transactions with Affiliates”; and
 
(5) “— Repurchase at the Option of Holders — Asset Sales.”
 
There can be no assurance that either series of Notes will ever achieve or maintain Investment Grade Ratings.
 
Limitation on Incurrence of Debt
 
The Company will not, and will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to, Incur any Debt (including Acquired Debt); provided that the Company and any Restricted Subsidiary may Incur Debt (including Acquired Debt) if, immediately after giving effect to the Incurrence of such Debt and the receipt and application of the proceeds therefrom, (a) the Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries, determined on a pro forma basis as if any such Debt (including any other Debt being Incurred contemporaneously), and any other Debt Incurred since the beginning of the Four Quarter Period had been Incurred and the proceeds thereof had been applied at the beginning of the Four Quarter Period, and any other Debt repaid since the beginning of the Four Quarter Period had been repaid at the beginning of the Four Quarter Period, would be greater than 2.0 to 1.0 and (b) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time or as a consequence of the Incurrence of such Debt.
 
If, during the Four Quarter Period or subsequent thereto and prior to the date of determination, the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries shall have engaged in any Asset Sale or Asset Acquisition, Investments, mergers, consolidations, discontinued operations (as determined in accordance with GAAP) or shall have designated any Restricted Subsidiary to be an Unrestricted Subsidiary or any Unrestricted Subsidiary to be a Restricted Subsidiary, Consolidated Cash Flow Available for Fixed Charges and Consolidated Interest Expense for the Four Quarter Period shall be calculated on a pro forma basis giving effect to such Asset Sale or Asset Acquisition, Investments, mergers, consolidations, discontinued operations or designation, as the case may be, and the application of any proceeds therefrom as if such Asset Sale or Asset Acquisition or designation had occurred on the first day of the Four Quarter Period.
 
If the Debt which is the subject of a determination under this provision is Acquired Debt, or Debt Incurred in connection with the simultaneous acquisition of any Person, business, property or assets, or Debt of an Unrestricted Subsidiary being designated as a Restricted Subsidiary, then such ratio shall be determined by giving effect (on a pro forma basis, as if the transaction had occurred at the beginning of the Four Quarter Period) to (x) the Incurrence of such Acquired Debt or such other Debt by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries and (y) the inclusion, in Consolidated Cash Flow Available for Fixed Charges, of the Consolidated Cash Flow Available for Fixed Charges of the acquired Person, business, property or assets or redesignated Subsidiary.
 
Notwithstanding the provisions of the Indenture described in the first paragraph of this “Limitation on Incurrence of Debt” covenant, the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries may Incur Permitted Debt.
 
For purposes of determining any particular amount of Debt under this “Limitation on Incurrence of Debt” covenant, (x) Debt Incurred under the Credit Agreement on the Issue Date shall at all times be treated as Incurred pursuant to clause (i) of the definition of “Permitted Debt,” and (y) Guarantees or obligations with respect to letters of credit supporting Debt otherwise included in the determination of such particular amount shall not be included. For purposes of determining compliance with this “Limitation on Incurrence of Debt” covenant, in the event that an item of Debt meets the criteria of more than one of the types of Debt described above, including categories of Permitted Debt and under part (a) in the first paragraph of this “Limitation on Incurrence of Debt” covenant, the Company, in its sole discretion, may classify, and from time to time may reclassify, all or any portion of such item of Debt in any manner such that the item of Debt would be permitted to be incurred at the time of such classification or reclassification, as applicable.


33


Table of Contents

For purposes of determining compliance with any U.S. dollar-denominated restriction on the incurrence of Debt, the U.S. dollar-equivalent principal amount of Debt denominated in a foreign currency shall be utilized, calculated based on the relevant currency exchange rate in effect on the date such Debt was incurred. Notwithstanding any other provision of this covenant, the maximum amount of Debt that the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary may incur pursuant to this covenant shall not be deemed to be exceeded solely as a result of fluctuations in exchange rates or currency values.
 
The Company and any Restricted Subsidiary will not Incur any Debt that pursuant to its terms is subordinate or junior in right of payment to any other Debt unless such Debt is subordinated in right of payment to the Notes and the Note Guarantees to the same extent; provided that Debt will not be considered subordinate or junior in right of payment to any other Debt solely by virtue of being unsecured or secured to a greater or lesser extent or with greater or lower priority or by virtue of structural subordination.
 
Limitation on Restricted Payments
 
The Company will not, and will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to, directly or indirectly, make any Restricted Payment unless, at the time of and after giving effect to the proposed Restricted Payment:
 
(a) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or will occur as a consequence thereof;
 
(b) after giving effect to such Restricted Payment on a pro forma basis, the Company would be permitted to Incur at least $1.00 of additional Debt (other than Permitted Debt) pursuant to the provisions described in the first paragraph under the “Limitation on Incurrence of Debt” covenant; and
 
(c) after giving effect to such Restricted Payment on a pro forma basis, the aggregate amount expended or declared for all Restricted Payments made on or after the Issue Date (excluding Restricted Payments permitted by clauses (ii), (iii), (iv), (v), (vi) (vii), (viii), (x), (xi) and (xii) of the next succeeding paragraph) shall not exceed the sum (without duplication) of
 
(1) 50% of the Consolidated Net Income (or, if Consolidated Net Income shall be a deficit, minus 100% of such deficit) of the Company accrued on a cumulative basis during the period (taken as one accounting period) beginning on January 1, 2010 and ending on the last day of the fiscal quarter immediately preceding the date of such proposed Restricted Payment, plus
 
(2) 100% of the aggregate net proceeds (including the Fair Market Value of property other than cash) received by the Company subsequent to the Issue Date either (i) as a contribution to its common equity capital or (ii) from the issuance and sale (other than to a Subsidiary) of its Qualified Capital Interests, including Qualified Capital Interests issued upon the conversion of Debt or Redeemable Capital Interests of the Company, and from the exercise of options, warrants or other rights to purchase such Qualified Capital Interests (other than, in each case, Capital Interests or Debt sold to a Subsidiary of the Company), plus
 
(3) 100% of the net reduction in Investments (other than Permitted Investments), subsequent to the Issue Date, in any Person, resulting from payments of interest on Debt, dividends, repayments of loans or advances, or any sale or disposition of such Investments (but only to the extent such items are not included in the calculation of Consolidated Net Income), in each case to the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary from any Person, not to exceed, in the case of any Person, the amount of Investments made after the Issue Date by the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries in such Person, plus
 
(4) an amount equal to the sum, for all Unrestricted Subsidiaries, of the following:
 
(x) the cash return, after the Issue Date, on Investments in an Unrestricted Subsidiary made after the Issue Date as a result of dividends, distributions, cancellation of indebtedness for borrowed money owed by the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary to an Unrestricted Subsidiary, interest payments, return of capital, repayments of Investments or other transfers of assets to the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary from any Unrestricted Subsidiary, any sale


34


Table of Contents

for cash, repayment, redemption, liquidating distribution or other cash realization (not included in Consolidated Net Income), plus
 
(y) the portion (proportionate to the Company’s equity interest in such Subsidiary) of the Fair Market Value of the assets less liabilities of an Unrestricted Subsidiary at the time such Unrestricted Subsidiary is designated a Restricted Subsidiary,
 
not to exceed, in the case of any Unrestricted Subsidiary, the amount of Investments made after the Issue Date by the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries in such Unrestricted Subsidiary.
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions, the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries may take the following actions, provided that, in the case of clauses (iv) and (x), immediately after giving effect to such action, no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing:
 
(i) the payment of any dividend on Capital Interests in the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary within 60 days after declaration thereof if at the declaration date such payment was permitted by the foregoing provisions of this covenant;
 
(ii) the purchase, repurchase, redemption, defeasance or other acquisition or retirement of any Qualified Capital Interests of the Company by conversion into, or by or in exchange for, Qualified Capital Interests, or out of net cash proceeds of the substantially concurrent sale (other than to a Restricted Subsidiary of the Company) of other Qualified Capital Interests of the Company;
 
(iii) the redemption, defeasance, repurchase or acquisition or retirement for value of any Debt of the Company or a Guarantor that is subordinate in right of payment to the Notes or the applicable Note Guarantee out of the net cash proceeds of a substantially concurrent issue and sale (other than to a Subsidiary of the Company) of (x) new subordinated Debt of the Company or such Guarantor, as the case may be, Incurred in accordance with the Indenture or (y) Qualified Capital Interests of the Company;
 
(iv) the purchase, redemption, retirement or other acquisition for value of Capital Interests in the Company held by employees or former employees of the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary (or their estates or beneficiaries under their estates) upon death, disability, retirement or termination of employment or alteration of employment status or pursuant to the terms of any agreement under which such Capital Interests were issued; provided that the aggregate cash consideration paid for such purchase, redemption, retirement or other acquisition of such Capital Interests does not exceed $40 million in any calendar year; provided, however, that such amount in any calendar year may be increased by an amount not to exceed (A) the cash proceeds received by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries from the sale of Qualified Capital Interests of the Company to employees of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries that occurs after the Issue Date; provided, however, that the amount of such cash proceeds utilized for any such repurchase, retirement, other acquisition or dividend will not increase the amount available for Restricted Payments under clause (c) of the first paragraph of this covenant; plus (B) the cash proceeds of key man life insurance policies received by the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries after the Issue Date (provided, however, that the Company may elect to apply all or any portion of the aggregate increase contemplated by the proviso of this clause (iv) in any calendar year and, to the extent any payment described under this clause (iv) is made by delivery of Debt and not in cash, such payment shall be deemed to occur only when, and to the extent, the obligor on such Debt makes payments with respect to such Debt);
 
(v) the repurchase of Capital Interests deemed to occur upon the exercise of stock options, warrants or other convertible or exchangeable securities;
 
(vi) the extension of credit that constitutes intercompany Debt, the Incurrence of which was permitted pursuant to the covenant described under “— Limitation on Incurrence of Debt”;
 
(vii) cash payment, in lieu of issuance of fractional shares in connection with the exercise of warrants, options or other securities convertible into or exchangeable for the Capital Interests of the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary;


35


Table of Contents

(viii) the declaration and payment of dividends to holders of any class or series of Redeemable Capital Interests of the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary issued or Incurred in compliance with the covenant described above under “— Limitation on Incurrence of Debt” to the extent such dividends are included in the definition of Consolidated Fixed Charges;
 
(ix) the repurchase, redemption or other acquisition or retirement for value of any subordinated Debt in accordance with provisions substantially similar to those described under the captions “Repurchase at the Option of Holders — Change of Control” and “Repurchase at the Option of Holders — Asset Sales”; provided, with respect to the Notes of a particular series, that all Notes of such series tendered by Holders in connection with a Change of Control Offer or Asset Sale Offer, as applicable, have been repurchased, redeemed or acquired for value;
 
(x) the making of any Restricted Payments if, at the time of the making of such payments, and after giving effect thereto (including, without limitation, the Incurrence of any Debt to finance such payment), the Consolidated Total Leverage Ratio would not exceed 3.00 to 1.00;
 
(xi) any Restricted Payment used to fund amounts owed to Affiliates, in each case to the extent permitted by the covenant described below under “— Transactions with Affiliates”;
 
(xii) the making of any other Restricted Payments not in excess of $500 million in the aggregate;
 
(xiii) any Investment made in exchange for, or out of the net cash proceeds of, a substantially concurrent offering of Qualified Capital Interests of the Company;
 
(xiv) repurchases by the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary of Capital Interests that were not theretofore owned by the Company or a Subsidiary of the Company in any Restricted Subsidiary;
 
(xv) Restricted Payments of the type described in either clauses (a) or (b) of the definition of “Restricted Payment” in an aggregate amount made under this clause (xv) in any calendar year not to exceed $80 million; and
 
(xvi) Restricted Payments made in connection with the Tender Offer.
 
If the Company makes a Restricted Payment which, at the time of the making of such Restricted Payment, in the good faith judgment of the Company, would be permitted under the requirements of the Indenture, such Restricted Payment shall be deemed to have been made in compliance with the Indenture notwithstanding any subsequent adjustment made in good faith to the Company’s financial statements affecting Consolidated Net Income.
 
If any Person in which an Investment is made, which Investment constitutes a Restricted Payment when made, thereafter becomes a Restricted Subsidiary in accordance with the Indenture, all such Investments previously made in such Person shall no longer be counted as Restricted Payments for purposes of calculating the aggregate amount of Restricted Payments pursuant to clause (c) of the first paragraph under this “Limitation on Restricted Payments” covenant, in each case to the extent such Investments would otherwise be so counted.
 
For purposes of this covenant, if a particular Restricted Payment involves a non-cash payment, including a distribution of assets, then such Restricted Payment shall be deemed to be an amount equal to the cash portion of such Restricted Payment, if any, plus an amount equal to the Fair Market Value of the non-cash portion of such Restricted Payment.
 
Limitation on Liens
 
The Company will not, and will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries, directly or indirectly, to enter into, create, incur, assume or suffer to exist any Liens of any kind (other than Permitted Liens), on or with respect to any of its property or assets now owned or hereafter acquired or any interest therein or any income or profits therefrom, which Liens secure Debt, without securing the Notes and all other amounts due under the Indenture equally and ratably with (or prior to) the Debt secured by such Lien until such time as such Debt is no longer secured by such Lien; provided that, if the Debt so secured is subordinated by its terms


36

Limitation on Dividend and Other Payment Restrictions Affecting Restricted Subsidiaries
 
The Company will not, and will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to, directly or indirectly, cause or suffer to exist or become effective or enter into any consensual encumbrance or restriction (other than pursuant to the Indenture or any law, rule, regulation or order) on the ability of any Restricted Subsidiary to (i) pay dividends or make any other distributions on its Capital Interests owned by the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary or pay any Debt or other obligation owed to the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary, (ii) make loans or advances to the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary or (iii) sell, lease or transfer any of its property or assets to the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary.

(a) any encumbrance or restriction in existence on the Issue Date, including those required by the Credit Agreement and any amendments, modifications, restatements, renewals, increases, supplements, refundings, replacements, refinancings thereof, provided that the amendments, modifications, restatements, renewals, increases, supplements, refundings, replacement or refinancings, in the good faith judgment of the Company, are no more restrictive, taken as a whole, with respect to such dividend or other payment restrictions than those contained in these agreements on the Issue Date or refinancings thereof;
 
(b) any encumbrance or restriction pursuant to an agreement relating to an acquisition of property, so long as the encumbrances or restrictions in any such agreement relate solely to the property so acquired (and are not or were not created in anticipation of or in connection with the acquisition thereof);

(d) any encumbrance or restriction pursuant to an agreement effecting a permitted renewal, refunding, replacement, refinancing or extension of Debt issued pursuant to an agreement containing any encumbrance or restriction referred to in the foregoing clauses (a) through (c), so long as the encumbrances and restrictions contained in any such refinancing agreement are no less favorable in any material respect to the Holders than the encumbrances and restrictions contained in the agreements governing the Debt being renewed, refunded, replaced, refinanced or extended in the good faith judgment of the Company;
 
(e) any encumbrance or restriction by reason of applicable law, rule, regulation or order (or required by any regulatory authority having jurisdiction over the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary or any of their businesses);

Provision of Financial Information
 
Whether or not required by the Commission, so long as any Notes are outstanding, the Company will furnish to the Holders of Notes, or file electronically with the Commission through the Commission’s Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval System (or any successor system), within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and regulations:
 
(1) all quarterly and annual financial information that would be required to be contained in a filing with the Commission on Forms 10-Q and 10-K if the Company were required to file such Forms, including a “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and, with respect to the annual information only, a report on the annual financial statements by the Company’s certified independent accountants; and
 
(2) all current reports that would be required to be filed with the Commission on Form 8-K if the Company were required to file such reports;
 
provided, however, that if the Company is not required to file reports with the Commission pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act (i.e., is a “voluntary filer”), the reports described in clauses (1) and (2) above shall not be required to contain any information that a voluntary filer would not be required to include in such reports.
 
In addition, whether or not required by the Commission, the Company will file a copy of all of the information and reports referred to in clauses (1) and (2) above with the Commission for public availability within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and regulations (unless the Commission will not accept such a filing) or otherwise make such information available to prospective investors. In addition, the Company and the Guarantors have agreed that, for so long as any Notes remain outstanding, they will furnish to the Holders and to prospective investors, upon their request, the information, if any, required to be delivered pursuant to Rule 144A(d)(4) under the Securities Act.
 
Additional Note Guarantees
 
On the Issue Date, each of the Guarantors will guarantee the Notes in the manner and on the terms set forth in the Indenture.
 
After the Issue Date, the Company will cause each of its wholly owned Domestic Restricted Subsidiaries that Incurs any Debt pursuant to clause (i) of the definition of “Permitted Debt” to guarantee the Notes; provided, however, that upon any such Domestic Restricted Subsidiary being released from all Debt incurred by such Domestic Restricted Subsidiary pursuant to clause (i) of the definition of “Permitted Debt”, the Note Guarantees of such Domestic Restricted Subsidiary shall automatically be deemed to be released.
 
Each Note Guarantee by a Guarantor will be limited to an amount not to exceed the maximum amount that can be guaranteed by that Guarantor without rendering the Guarantee, as it relates to such Guarantor, voidable under applicable law relating to fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer or similar laws affecting the rights of creditors generally. By virtue of this limitation, a Guarantor’s obligations under its Note Guarantees could be significantly less than amounts payable with respect to the Notes, or a Guarantor may have effectively no obligation under its Note Guarantees. See “Risk Factors — Risk Factors Related to the Exchange Notes and Exchange Offers.”
 
Limitation on Creation of Unrestricted Subsidiaries
 
The Company may designate any Subsidiary of the Company to be an “Unrestricted Subsidiary” as provided below, in which event such Subsidiary and each other Person that is then or thereafter becomes a Subsidiary of such Subsidiary will be deemed to be an Unrestricted Subsidiary.


39


Table of Contents

The Company may designate any Subsidiary to be an Unrestricted Subsidiary unless such Subsidiary owns any Capital Interests of, or owns or holds any Lien on any property of, any other Restricted Subsidiary of the Company, provided that either:
 
(x) the Subsidiary to be so designated has Total Assets of $1,000 or less; or
 
(y) the Company could make a Restricted Payment at the time of designation in an amount equal to the greater of the Fair Market Value or book value of such Subsidiary pursuant to the “— Limitation on Restricted Payments” covenant and such amount is thereafter treated as a Restricted Payment for the purpose of calculating the amount available for Restricted Payments thereunder.
 
An Unrestricted Subsidiary may be designated as a Restricted Subsidiary if (i) all the Debt of such Unrestricted Subsidiary could be Incurred under the “— Limitation on Incurrence of Debt” covenant and (ii) all the Liens on the property and assets of such Unrestricted Subsidiary could be incurred pursuant to the “— Limitation on Liens” covenant.
 
Consolidation, Merger, Conveyance, Transfer or Lease
 
The Company will not in any transaction or series of transactions, consolidate with or merge into any other Person (other than a merger of a Subsidiary into the Company in which the Company is the continuing Person or the merger of a Restricted Subsidiary into or with another Restricted Subsidiary or another Person that as a result of such transaction becomes or merges into a Restricted Subsidiary), or sell, assign, convey, transfer, lease or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, to any other Person, unless:
 
(i) either: (a) the Company shall be the continuing Person or (b) the Person (if other than the Company) formed by such consolidation or into which the Company is merged, or the Person that acquires, by sale, assignment, conveyance, transfer, lease or other disposition, all or substantially all of the property and assets of the Company (such Person, the “Surviving Entity”), (1) shall be a corporation, partnership, limited liability company or similar entity organized and validly existing under the laws of the United States, any political subdivision thereof or any state thereof or the District of Columbia and (2) shall expressly assume, by a supplemental indenture, the due and punctual payment of all amounts due in respect of the principal of (and premium, if any) and interest on all the Notes and the performance of the covenants and obligations of the Company under the Indenture; provided that at any time the Company or its successor is not a corporation, there shall be a co-issuer of the Notes that is a corporation;
 
(ii) immediately after giving effect to such transaction or series of transactions on a pro forma basis (including, without limitation, any Debt Incurred or anticipated to be Incurred in connection with or in respect of such transaction or series of transactions), no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or would result therefrom; and
 
(iii) the Company delivers, or causes to be delivered, to the Trustee, in form satisfactory to the Trustee, an Officers’ Certificate and an opinion of counsel, each stating that such consolidation, merger, sale, conveyance, assignment, transfer, lease or other disposition complies with the requirements of the Indenture and that such supplemental indenture constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Surviving Entity subject to customary exceptions.
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, failure to satisfy the requirements of the preceding clause (ii) will not prohibit:
 
(a) a merger between the Company and a Restricted Subsidiary that is a wholly owned Subsidiary of the Company or a sale, assignment, conveyance, transfer, lease or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, to a Restricted Subsidiary that is a wholly owned Subsidiary of the Company; or
 
(b) a merger between the Company and an Affiliate incorporated solely for the purpose of converting the Company into a corporation organized under the laws of the United States or any political

subdivision or state thereof; so long as, in each case, the amount of Debt of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries is not increased thereby.
 
For all purposes of the Indenture and the Notes, Subsidiaries of any Surviving Entity will, upon such transaction or series of transactions, become Restricted Subsidiaries or Unrestricted Subsidiaries as provided pursuant to the Indenture and all Debt, and all Liens on property or assets, of the Surviving Entity and its Subsidiaries that was not Debt, or were not Liens on property or assets, of the Company and its Subsidiaries immediately prior to such transaction or series of transactions shall be deemed to have been Incurred upon such transaction or series of transactions.
 
Upon any transaction or series of transactions that are of the type described in, and are effected in accordance with, conditions described in the immediately preceding paragraphs, the Surviving Entity shall succeed to, and be substituted for, and may exercise every right and power of, the Company, under the Indenture with the same effect as if such Surviving Entity had been named as the Company therein; and when a Surviving Person duly assumes all of the obligations and covenants of the Company pursuant to the Indenture and the Notes, except in the case of a lease, the predecessor Person shall be relieved of all such obligations.
 
Transactions with Affiliates
 
The Company will not, and will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to, make any payment to, or sell, lease, transfer or otherwise dispose of any of its properties or assets to, or purchase any property or assets from, or enter into or make or amend any transaction, contract, agreement, understanding, loan, advance or guarantee with, or for the benefit of, any Affiliate of the Company (each of the foregoing, an “Affiliate Transaction”) involving aggregate payments or consideration in excess of $25 million, unless:
 
(i) such Affiliate Transaction is on terms that are not materially less favorable to the Company or its relevant Restricted Subsidiary than those that would have been obtained in a comparable transaction by the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary with an unrelated Person on an arm’s-length basis; and
 
(ii) the Company delivers to the Trustee with respect to any Affiliate Transaction or series of related Affiliate Transactions involving aggregate payments or consideration in excess of $50 million, a resolution adopted by the majority of the Board of Directors of the Company approving such Affiliate Transaction and set forth in an Officers’ Certificate certifying that, in the good faith judgment of the Company, such Affiliate Transaction complies with clause (i) above.
 
The foregoing provisions will not apply to the following:
 
(a) transactions between or among the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries;
 
(b) Restricted Payments permitted by the provisions of the Indenture described above under the covenant “— Limitation on Restricted Payments” and the definition of “Permitted Investments”;

(d) transactions in which the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries, as the case may be, delivers to the Trustee a letter from an Independent Financial Advisor stating that such transaction is fair to the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary from a financial point of view or stating that the terms are not materially less favorable to the Company or its relevant Restricted Subsidiary than those that would have been obtained in a comparable transaction by the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary with an unrelated Person on an arm’s-length basis;
 
(e) any agreement or arrangement as in effect as of the Issue Date, or any amendment thereto (so long as any such amendment is not materially disadvantageous to the Holders when taken as a whole as compared to the applicable agreement as in effect on the Issue Date);

Table of Contents

(f) the existence of, or the performance by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of its obligations under the terms of, any stockholders agreement or its equivalent (including any registration rights agreement or purchase agreement related thereto) to which it is a party as of the Issue Date and any similar agreements which it may enter into thereafter; provided, however, that the existence of, or the performance by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of obligations under any future amendment to any such existing agreement or under any similar agreement entered into after the Issue Date shall only be permitted by this clause (f) to the extent that the terms of any such amendment or new agreement are customary or are not otherwise materially disadvantageous to the Holders when taken as a whole;
 
(g) transactions with customers, clients, suppliers, or purchasers or sellers of goods or services, in each case in the ordinary course of business and otherwise in compliance with the terms of the Indenture which are fair to the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries, in the good faith judgment of the Company, or are on terms at least as favorable as might reasonably have been obtained at such time from an unaffiliated party;

Events of Default
 
Each of the following is an “Event of Default” with respect to the Notes of a particular series under the Indenture:
 
(i) default in the payment in respect of the principal of (or premium, if any, on) any Note of such series when due and payable (whether at Stated Maturity or upon repurchase, acceleration, optional redemption or otherwise);
 
(ii) default in the payment of any interest (including any Additional Interest) upon any Note of such series when it becomes due and payable, and continuance of such default for a period of 30 days;
 
(iii) except for a release in accordance with or as otherwise permitted by the Indenture, any Note Guarantee of any Significant Subsidiary (or any group of Restricted Subsidiaries that, taken together, would constitute a Significant Subsidiary) with respect to the Notes of such series shall for any reason cease to be, or it shall be asserted by any Guarantor or the Company not to be, in full force and effect and enforceable in accordance with its terms;
 
(iv) failure by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to comply with the provisions described under the captions “Repurchase at the Option of Holders — Change of Control,” “Repurchase at the Option of Holders — Asset Sales,” or “Certain Covenants — Consolidation, Merger, Conveyance, Transfer or Lease”;
 
(v) default in the performance, or breach, of any other covenant or agreement of the Company or any Guarantor in the Indenture (other than a covenant or agreement a default in whose performance or whose breach is specifically dealt with in clause (1), (2), (3) or (4) above), and continuance of such default or breach for a period of 60 days after written notice thereof (or 120 days in the case of the covenant described under “— Certain Covenants — Provision of Financial Information”) has been given to the Company by the Trustee or to the Company and the Trustee by the Holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes of such series;
 
(vi) a default or defaults under any bonds, debentures, notes or other evidences of Debt (other than the applicable series of Notes) by the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary that is a Significant Subsidiary having, individually or in the aggregate, a principal or similar amount outstanding of at least $300 million, whether such Debt now exists or shall hereafter be created, which default or defaults shall have resulted in the acceleration of the maturity of such Debt prior to its express maturity or shall constitute a failure to pay at least $300 million of such Debt when due and payable after the expiration of any applicable grace period with respect thereto;
 
(vii) the entry against the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary that is a Significant Subsidiary of a final judgment or final judgments for the payment of money in an aggregate amount in excess of $300 million (in excess of amounts covered by independent third-party insurance as to which the insurer has been notified of such judgment and does not deny coverage), by a court or courts of competent jurisdiction, which judgments remain undischarged, unwaived, unstayed, unbonded or unsatisfied for a period of 60 consecutive days; or
 
(viii) certain events in bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization affecting the Company or any Significant Subsidiary (or any group of Restricted Subsidiaries that, taken together, would constitute a Significant Subsidiary).
 
If an Event of Default (other than an Event of Default described in clause (8) above with respect to the Company) with respect to a series of Notes occurs and is continuing, then and in every such case the Trustee or the Holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes of such series may declare the principal of the Notes of such series and any accrued interest on the Notes of such series to be due and payable immediately by a notice in writing to the Company (and to the Trustee if given by Holders); provided, however, that after such acceleration, but before a judgment or decree based on acceleration, the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes of such series may, under certain circumstances, rescind and annul such acceleration if all Events of Default, other than the nonpayment of

Table of Contents

accelerated principal of or interest on the Notes of such series, have been cured or waived as provided in the Indenture.
 
In the event of a declaration of acceleration of the Notes of either series solely because an Event of Default described in clause (6) above has occurred and is continuing, the declaration of acceleration of the Notes of such series shall be automatically rescinded and annulled if the event of default or payment default triggering such Event of Default pursuant to clause (6) shall be remedied or cured by the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary of the Company or waived by the holders of the relevant Debt within 20 business days after the declaration of acceleration and if the rescission and annulment of the acceleration of the Notes of such series would not conflict with any judgment or decree of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Trustee for the payment of amounts due on the Notes of such series.
 
If an Event of Default described in clause (8) above occurs with respect to the Company, the principal of and any accrued interest on the Notes of both series then outstanding shall ipso facto become immediately due and payable without any declaration or other act on the part of the Trustee or any Holder. For further information as to waiver of defaults, see “— Amendment, Supplement and Waiver.” The Trustee may withhold from Holders notice of any Default (except Default in payment of principal of, premium, if any, and interest) if the Trustee determines that withholding notice is in the interests of the Holders.
 
No Holder of any Note of either series will have any right to institute any proceeding with respect to the Indenture or for any remedy thereunder, unless such Holder shall have previously given to the Trustee written notice of a continuing Event of Default and unless also the Holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes of such series shall have made written request to the Trustee, and provided security or indemnity reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee, to institute such proceeding as Trustee, and the Trustee shall not have received from the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes of such series a direction inconsistent with such request and shall have failed to institute such proceeding within 60 days. Such limitations do not apply, however, to a suit instituted by a Holder of a Note of either series directly (as opposed to through the Trustee) for enforcement of payment of the principal of (and premium, if any) or interest on such Note on or after the respective due dates expressed in such Note.
 
The Company will be required to furnish to the Trustee annually a statement as to the performance of certain obligations under the Indenture and as to any Default in such performance. The Company also is required to provide written notice to the Trustee if it becomes aware of the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default.
 
Amendment, Supplement and Waiver
 
Without the consent of any Holders, at any time and from time to time, the Company, the Guarantors and the Trustee may enter into one or more indentures supplemental to the Indenture and the Guarantees for any of the following purposes:
 
(1) to evidence the succession of another Person to the Company and the assumption by any such successor of the covenants of the Company in the Indenture and the Guarantees and in the Notes;
 
(2) to secure the Notes, to add to the covenants of the Company for the benefit of the Holders of the Notes, or to surrender any right or power conferred upon the Company in the Indenture;
 
(3) to add additional Events of Default;
 
(4) to provide for uncertificated Notes in addition to or in place of the certificated Notes;
 
(5) to evidence and provide for the acceptance of appointment under the Indenture by a successor Trustee;

(10) to provide additional rights or benefits to the Holders or to make any change that does not adversely affect the rights of any Holder.
 
With the consent of the Holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes of a particular series, the Company, the Guarantors and the Trustee may enter into an indenture or indentures supplemental to the Indenture for the purpose of adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions of the Indenture with respect to the Notes of such series or of modifying in any manner the rights of the Holders of the Notes of such series under the Indenture, including the definitions therein; provided, however, that no such supplemental indenture shall, without the consent of the Holder of each outstanding Note of such series affected thereby:
 
(1) change the Stated Maturity of any Note of such series or of any installment of interest on any Note of such series, or reduce the amount payable in respect of the principal thereof or the rate of interest thereon or any premium payable thereon, or reduce the amount that would be due and payable on acceleration of the maturity thereof, or change the place of payment where, or the coin or currency in which, any Note of such series or any premium or interest thereon is payable, or impair the right to institute suit for the enforcement of any such payment on or after the Stated Maturity thereof, or change the date on which any Notes of such series may be subject to redemption or reduce the Redemption Price therefor;
 
(2) reduce the percentage in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes of such series, the consent of whose Holders is required for any such supplemental indenture, or the consent of whose Holders is required for any waiver (of compliance with certain provisions of the Indenture or certain defaults thereunder and their consequences) with respect to the Notes of such series provided for in the Indenture;
 
(3) modify the obligations of the Company to make a Change of Control Offer or an Asset Sale Offer with respect to the Notes of such series upon a Change of Control or Asset Sale, as the case may be, if such modification was done after the occurrence of such event;
 
(4) modify or change any provision of the Indenture affecting the ranking of the Notes of such series or any Note Guarantee of the Notes of such series in a manner adverse to the Holders of the Notes of such series;
 
(5) modify any of the provisions of the Indenture described in this paragraph or provisions relating to waiver of defaults or certain covenants with respect to the Notes of such series, except to increase any such percentage required for such actions or to provide that certain other provisions of the Indenture cannot be modified or waived without the consent of the Holder of each outstanding Note affected thereby; or
 
(6) release any Guarantees with respect to the Notes of such series required to be maintained under the Indenture (other than in accordance with the terms of the Indenture).
 
The Holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes of a particular series may on behalf of the Holders of all the Notes of such series waive any past Default with respect to the Notes of such series under the Indenture and its consequences, except a Default:
 
(1) in any payment in respect of the principal of (or premium, if any) or interest on any Notes of such series (including any Note of such series which is required to have been purchased pursuant to a Change of Control Offer or Asset Sale Offer which has been made by the Company); or
 
(2) in respect of a covenant or provision of the Indenture which under the Indenture cannot be modified or amended without the consent of the Holder of each outstanding Note of such series affected.

Defeasance
 
The Company may elect, at its option, to have its obligations and the obligations of the Guarantors discharged with respect to the outstanding Notes of either series and the related Guarantees (“legal defeasance”). Legal defeasance means that the Company will be deemed to have paid and discharged the entire indebtedness represented by the outstanding Notes of such series, except for:
 
(1) the rights of Holders of such Notes to receive payments in respect of the principal of and any premium and interest on such Notes when payments are due;
 
(2) the Company’s obligations with respect to such Notes concerning issuing temporary Notes, registration of Notes, mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Notes and the maintenance of an office or agency for payment and money for security payments held in trust;
 
(3) the rights, powers, trusts, duties and immunities of the Trustee; and
 
(4) the defeasance provisions of the Indenture.
 
In addition, the Company may elect, at its option, to have its obligations released with respect to certain covenants as they relate to either series of Notes, including, without limitation, its obligation to make offers to purchase Notes of such series in connection with any Change of Control or Asset Sale, in the Indenture (“covenant defeasance”) and any omission to comply with such obligation shall not constitute a Default or an Event of Default with respect to the Notes of such series. In the event covenant defeasance occurs, certain

events (not including non-payment, bankruptcy and insolvency events) described under “Events of Default” will no longer constitute an Event of Default with respect to the applicable series of Notes and the Guarantors will be released from their obligations with respect to the related Note Guarantees related to such covenants.
 
In order to exercise either legal defeasance or covenant defeasance with respect to outstanding Notes of either series:
 
(1) the Company must irrevocably have deposited or caused to be deposited with the Trustee as trust funds in trust for the purpose of making the following payments, specifically pledged as security for, and dedicated solely to the benefits of the Holders of such Notes: (A) money in an amount, or (B) U.S. government obligations, which through the scheduled payment of principal and interest in respect thereof in accordance with their terms will provide, not later than the due date of any payment, money in an amount or (C) a combination thereof, in each case sufficient without reinvestment, in the opinion of a nationally recognized firm of independent public accountants expressed in a written certification thereof delivered to the Trustee, to pay and discharge, and which shall be applied by the Trustee to pay and discharge, the entire indebtedness in respect of the principal of and premium, if any, and interest on the Notes of such series on the Stated Maturity thereof or (if the Company has made irrevocable arrangements satisfactory to the Trustee for the giving of notice of redemption by the Trustee in the name and at the expense of the Company) the redemption date thereof, as the case may be, in accordance with the terms of the Indenture and the Notes of such series;
 
(2) in the case of legal defeasance, the Company shall have delivered to the Trustee an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Trustee stating that (A) the Company has received from, or there has been published by, the Internal Revenue Service a ruling or (B) since the date of the Indenture, there has been a change in the applicable United States federal income tax law, in either case (A) or (B) to the effect that, and based thereon such opinion shall confirm that, the Holders of the Notes of such series will not recognize gain or loss for United States federal income tax purposes as a result of the deposit and legal defeasance to be effected with respect to the Notes of such series and will be subject to United States federal income tax on the same amount, in the same manner and at the same times as would be the case if such deposit and legal defeasance were not to occur;
 
(3) in the case of covenant defeasance, the Company shall have delivered to the Trustee an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Trustee to the effect that the Holders of outstanding Notes of such series will not recognize gain or loss for United States federal income tax purposes as a result of the deposit and covenant defeasance to be effected with respect to the Notes of such series and will be subject to United States federal income tax on the same amount, in the same manner and at the same times as would be the case if such deposit and covenant defeasance were not to occur;
 
(4) no Default or Event of Default with respect to the outstanding Notes of such series shall have occurred and be continuing at the time of such deposit after giving effect thereto (other than a Default or Event of Default resulting from the borrowing of funds to be applied to such deposit (and any similar concurrent deposit relating to other Debt) and the grant of any Lien to secure such borrowing);
 
(5) such legal defeasance or covenant defeasance shall not result in a breach or violation of, or constitute a default under, any material agreement or material instrument (other than the Indenture) to which the Company is a party or by which the Company is bound (other than a default or event of default under any such other instrument resulting from borrowing funds to be applied to make the deposit under the Indenture in connection with the legal defeasance or covenant defeasance (and any similar concurrent deposit relating to other Debt) or the granting of Liens in connection therewith); and
 
(6) the Company shall have delivered to the Trustee an Officers’ Certificate and an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Trustee, each stating that all conditions precedent with respect to such legal defeasance or covenant defeasance have been complied with.
 
In the event of a legal defeasance or a Discharge, a Holder whose taxable year straddles the deposit of funds and the distribution in redemption to such Holder would be subject to tax on any gain (whether characterized as capital gain or market discount) in the year of deposit rather than in the year of receipt. In


47

connection with a Discharge, in the event the Company becomes insolvent within the applicable preference period after the date of deposit, monies held for the payment of the Notes may be part of the bankruptcy estate of the Company, disbursement of such monies may be subject to the automatic stay of the bankruptcy code and monies disbursed to Holders may be subject to disgorgement in favor of the Company’s estate. Similar results may apply upon the insolvency of the Company during the applicable preference period following the deposit of monies in connection with legal defeasance.
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the opinion of counsel required by clause (2) above with respect to a legal defeasance in respect of either series of Notes need not to be delivered if all Notes of such series not theretofore delivered to the Trustee for cancellation (x) have become due and payable, or (y) will become due and payable within one year at Stated Maturity or are to be called for redemption within one year under arrangements satisfactory to the Trustee for the giving of notice of redemption by the Trustee in the name, and at the expense, of the Company.
 
The Trustee
 
The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., the Trustee under the Indenture, will be the initial paying agent and registrar for each series of the Notes. An affiliate of the Trustee from time to time may extend credit to the Company in the normal course of business. Except during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Trustee is required to perform only such duties as are specifically set forth in the Indenture. During the continuance of an Event of Default that has not been cured or waived, the Trustee will exercise such of the rights and powers vested in it by the Indenture and use the same degree of care and skill in their exercise or use under the circumstances as would a prudent person in the conduct of its own affairs.
 
The Indenture and the Trust Indenture Act contain certain limitations on the rights of the Trustee, should it become a creditor of the Company, to obtain payment of claims in certain cases or to realize on certain property received in respect of any such claim as security or otherwise. The Trustee will be permitted to engage in other transactions; however, if it acquires any “conflicting interest” (as defined in the Trust Indenture Act) it must eliminate such conflict within 90 days, apply to the Commission for permission to continue or resign.
 
The Holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes of each series will have the right to direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy with respect to such series of Notes available to the Trustee or exercising any trust or power conferred on the Trustee with respect to such series of Notes, subject to receipt by the Trustee of security or indemnity satisfactory to the Trustee and subject to certain exceptions. However, the Trustee may refuse to follow any direction that conflicts with law or the Indenture that the Trustee determines may be unduly prejudicial to the rights of other Holders of Notes or that may involve the Trustee in personal liability. The Indenture provides that in case an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Trustee shall exercise such of the rights and powers vested in it by the Indenture, and use the same degree of care and skill in their exercise or use under the circumstances, as would a prudent person. Subject to such provisions, the Trustee shall be under no obligation to exercise any of the rights or powers vested in it by the Indenture at the request or direction of any of the Holders pursuant to the Indenture, unless such Holders shall have provided to the Trustee security or indemnity reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee against the costs, expenses and liabilities which might be incurred by it in compliance with such request or direction.
 
No recourse may, to the full extent permitted by applicable law, be taken, directly or indirectly, with respect to the obligations of the Company or the Guarantors on the Notes or under the Indenture or any related documents, any certificate or other writing delivered in connection therewith, against (i) the Trustee in its individual capacity, (ii) any partner, owner, beneficiary, agent, officer, director, employee, agent, successor or assign of the Trustee, each in its individual capacity, or (iii) any holder of equity in the Trustee.
 
No Personal Liability of Stockholders, Partners, Officers or Directors
 
No director, officer, employee, stockholder, general or limited partner or incorporator, past, present or future, of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, as such or in such capacity, shall have any personal liability


48

for any obligations of the Company under the Notes, any Note Guarantee or the Indenture by reason of his, her or its status as such director, officer, employee, stockholder, general or limited partner or incorporator. Each Holder of Notes by accepting a Note waives and releases all such liability. The waiver and release are part of the consideration for the issuance of the Notes and Note Guarantees.

In addition to and without limitation of the foregoing, for purposes of this definition, “Consolidated Cash Flow Available for Fixed Charges” and “Consolidated Fixed Charges” shall be calculated after giving effect (i) to the cost of any compensation, remuneration or other benefit paid or provided to any employee, consultant, Affiliate or equity owner of the entity involved in any Asset Acquisition to the extent such costs are eliminated or reduced (or public announcement has been made of the intent to eliminate or reduce such costs) prior to the date of such calculation and not replaced; and (ii) on a pro forma basis for the period of such calculation, to any Asset Sales or other dispositions or Asset Acquisitions, investments, mergers, consolidations and discontinued operations (as determined in accordance with GAAP) occurring during the Four Quarter Period or any time subsequent to the last day of the Four Quarter Period and on or prior to the Transaction Date, as if such Asset Sale or other disposition or Asset Acquisition (including the incurrence or assumption of any such Acquired Debt), investment, merger, consolidation or disposed operation occurred on the first day of the Four Quarter Period.

(ii) if interest on any Debt actually incurred on the Transaction Date may optionally be determined at an interest rate based upon a factor of a prime or similar rate, a eurocurrency interbank offered rate, or other rates, then the interest rate in effect on the Transaction Date will be deemed to have been in effect during the Four Quarter Period.

EXCHANGE OFFERS
 
In connection with the issuance of the Original Notes on July 16, 2010, we entered into a registration rights agreement with the initial purchasers, which provides for the exchange offers. The exchange offers will permit eligible holders of notes to exchange the Original Notes for Exchange Notes that are identical in all material respects with the applicable series of Original Notes for which they have been exchanged, except that:
 
  •  the Exchange Notes have been registered under the U.S. federal securities laws and will not bear any legend restricting their transfer;
 
  •  the Exchange Notes bear a different CUSIP number from the Original Notes;
 
  •  the Exchange Notes generally will not be subject to transfer restrictions and will not be entitled to registration rights; and
 
  •  the holders of the Exchange Notes will not be entitled to earn additional interest under circumstances relating to our registration obligations under the registration rights agreement.
 
The Exchange Notes will evidence the same debt as the Original Notes. Holders of Exchange Notes will be entitled to the benefits of the indenture.
 
The following summary of certain provisions of the registration rights agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to, all the provisions of the registration rights agreement. You should refer to the exhibits that are a part of the registration statement (of which this prospectus is a part) for a copy of the registration rights agreement. See “Where You Can Find More Information.”
 
General
 
We are making the exchange offers to comply with our contractual obligations under the registration rights agreement. Except under limited circumstances, upon completion of the exchange offers, our obligations with respect to the registration of the Original Notes will terminate.
 
We agreed, pursuant to the registration rights agreement, to use commercially reasonable efforts to:
 
  •  cause to be filed as soon as practicable after the date of issuance of the Original Notes, but in no event later than April 12, 2011, an exchange offer registration statement with the SEC,
 
  •  cause the exchange offer registration statement to become effective on or before July 11, 2011, and
 
  •  have the exchange offer registration statement remain effective for use by one or more participating broker-dealers until the earlier of 90 days after the date the exchange offer registration statement becomes effective and the date on which a broker-dealer is no longer required to deliver a prospectus in connection with market-making or other trading activities.
 
We will use commercially reasonable efforts to consummate the exchange offers on or before the 30th business day after the exchange offer registration statement is declared effective by the SEC.
 
We will keep the exchange offers open for not less than 20 business days (or longer if required by law) after the date notice of the exchange offers is mailed to the respective holders of the Original Notes. For each Original Note surrendered to us pursuant to the exchange offers, the holder of such Original Note will receive an Exchange Note of the respective series having a principal amount equal to that of the surrendered Original Note. Interest on each Exchange Note will accrue from the last interest payment date on which interest was paid on the Original Note surrendered in exchange thereof or, if no interest has been paid on the Original Note, from the date of its original issue.
 
In connection with the issuance of the Original Notes, we arranged for the Original Notes to be issued in the form of global notes through the facilities of DTC acting as depositary. The Exchange Notes will also be


74


Table of Contents

issued in the form of global notes registered in the name of DTC or its nominee and each beneficial owner’s interest in Exchange Notes will be transferable in book-entry form through DTC.
 
Holders of Original Notes do not have any appraisal or dissenters’ rights in connection with the exchange offers. Original Notes which are not tendered for exchange or are tendered but not accepted in connection with the exchange offers will remain outstanding and be entitled to the benefits of the Indenture, including accrual of interest, but, subject to limited exceptions, will not be entitled to any registration rights under the applicable registration rights agreement. See ‘‘— Consequences of Failure to Tender.”
 
We will be deemed to have accepted validly tendered Original Notes when and if we have given oral or written notice to the exchange agent of our acceptance. Subject to the terms and conditions of these exchange offers, delivery of Exchange Notes will be made by the exchange agent on the settlement date upon receipt of such notice. The exchange agent will act as agent for the tendering holders for the purpose of receiving the Exchange Notes from us. If any tendered Original Notes are not accepted for exchange because of an invalid tender, the occurrence of other events described in this prospectus or otherwise, we will return the certificates for any unaccepted Original Notes, at our expense, to the tendering holder promptly after the expiration of the applicable exchange offer.
 
The exchange offers are not being made to, nor will we accept tenders for exchange from, holders of the Original Notes in any jurisdiction in which the applicable exchange offer or the acceptance of it would not be in compliance with the securities or blue sky laws of that jurisdiction.
 
Eligibility; Transferability
 
We are making the exchange offers in reliance on interpretations of the staff of the SEC set forth in several no-action letters. However, we have not sought our own no-action letter. Based upon these interpretations, we believe that you, or any other person receiving Exchange Notes, may offer for resale, resell or otherwise transfer such Exchange Notes without complying with the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the U.S. federal securities laws, if:
 
  •  you are, or the person or entity receiving such Exchange Notes is, acquiring such Exchange Notes in the ordinary course of business;
 
  •  you are not, nor is any such person or entity, engaged in, or intends to engage in, a distribution (within the meaning of such term under the Securities Act) of the Exchange Notes;
 
  •  you do not, nor does any such person or entity, have an arrangement or understanding with any person or entity to participate in any distribution (within the meaning of such term under the Securities Act) of the Exchange Notes;
 
  •  you are not, nor is any such person or entity, our affiliate as such term is defined under Rule 405 under the Securities Act; and
 
  •  you are not acting on behalf of any person or entity who could not truthfully make these statements.
 
To participate in the exchange offers, you must represent as the holder of Original Notes that each of these statements is true.
 
In addition, each broker-dealer registered under the Exchange Act must also (i) represent that it is participating in the applicable exchange offer for its own account and is exchanging Original Notes acquired as a result of market-making activities or other trading activities, (ii) confirm that it has not entered into any arrangement or understanding with the Company or any affiliate of the Company to distribute the Exchange Notes and (iii) acknowledge that it will deliver a prospectus in connection with any resale of the Exchange Notes. The letter of transmittal states that by acknowledging that it will deliver, and by delivering, a prospectus, a broker-dealer will not be deemed to admit that it is an underwriter within the meaning of the Securities Act. This prospectus, as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, may be used by a broker-dealer in connection with resale of the Exchange Notes received in exchange for the Original Notes where such Original Notes were acquired by such broker-dealer as a result of market-making activities or


75


Table of Contents

other trading activities. We have agreed that, until the earlier of 90 days after the date the exchange offers registration statement becomes effective and the date on which a broker-dealer is no longer required to deliver a prospectus in connection with market-making or other trading activities, we will amend or supplement this prospectus in order to expedite or facilitate the disposition of any Exchange Notes by such broker-dealers.
 
Any holder of Original Notes who is our affiliate, who does not acquire the Exchange Notes in the ordinary course of business, who intends to participate in the exchange offers for the purpose of distributing the Exchange Notes or is a broker-dealer who purchased the Original Notes directly from us:
 
  •  will not be able to rely on the interpretation of the staff of the SEC set forth in the no-action letters described above; and
 
  •  must comply with the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act in connection with any sale or transfer of the Notes, unless the sale or transfer is made pursuant to an exemption from those requirements.
 
Expiration of the Exchange Offers; Extensions; Amendments
 
The exchange offers will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on [          ], 2010, or the expiration date, unless we extend either or both of the exchange offers. To extend either of the exchange offers, we will notify the exchange agent and each registered holder of any extension before 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on the next business day after the previously scheduled expiration date. We reserve the right to extend either or both of the exchange offers, delay accepting any tendered Original Notes or, if any of the conditions described below under the heading “— Conditions” have not been satisfied, to terminate such exchange offer. We also reserve the right to amend the terms of the exchange offers in any manner. We will give oral or written notice of such delay, extension, termination or amendment to the exchange agent.
 
If we amend either exchange offer in a manner that we consider material, we will disclose such amendment by means of a prospectus supplement, and we will extend the applicable exchange offer, if necessary, so that at least five business days remain in the offer following notice of the material change.
 
If we determine to make a public announcement of any delay, extension, amendment or termination of either exchange offer, we will do so by making a timely release through an appropriate news agency.
 
Conditions
 
Notwithstanding any other term of either exchange offer, we will not be required to accept for exchange, or issue any Exchange Notes for the respective series of, any Original Notes, and may terminate or amend such exchange offer before the acceptance of the Original Notes, if:
 
  •  we determine that such exchange offer violates any law, statute, rule, regulation or any interpretation by the staff of the SEC or any order of any governmental agency or court of competent jurisdiction; or
 
  •  any action or proceeding is instituted or threatened in any court or by or before any governmental agency relating to such exchange offer which, in our judgment, could reasonably be expected to impair our ability to proceed with the exchange offer.
 
The conditions listed above are for our sole benefit and may be asserted by us regardless of the circumstances giving rise to any of these conditions. We may waive these conditions in our reasonable discretion in whole or in part at any time and from time to time prior to the expiration date. The failure by us at any time to exercise any of the above rights shall not be considered a waiver of such right, and such right shall be considered an ongoing right which may be asserted at any time and from time to time.
 
In addition, we will not accept for exchange any Original Notes tendered, and no Exchange Notes will be issued in exchange for those Original Notes, if at any time any stop order is threatened or issued with respect to the registration statement for the exchange offers and the Exchange Notes or the qualification of the indenture under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939. In any such event, we must use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the withdrawal of any stop order as soon as practicable.


76


Table of Contents

In addition, we will not be obligated to accept for exchange the Original Notes of any holder that has not made to us the representations described under “— Eligibility; Transferability” and “Plan of Distribution.”
 
Procedures for Tendering
 
A holder of Original Notes who wishes to accept the applicable exchange offer, and whose Original Notes are held by a custodial entity such as a bank, broker, dealer, trust company or other nominee, must instruct the custodial entity to tender and consent with respect to that holder’s Original Notes on the holder’s behalf pursuant to the procedures of the custodial entity.
 
To tender in the applicable exchange offer, a holder of Original Notes must:
 
(i) complete, sign and date the letter of transmittal (or a facsimile thereof) in accordance with its instructions, including guaranteeing the signature(s) to the letter of transmittal, if required, and mail or otherwise deliver such letter of transmittal or such facsimile, together with the certificates representing the Original Notes specified therein, to the exchange agent at the address set forth in the letter of transmittal for receipt on or prior to the expiration date;
 
(ii) comply with DTC’s Automated Tender Offer Program, or ATOP, procedures for book-entry transfer described below on or prior to the expiration date; or
 
(iii) comply with the guaranteed delivery procedures described below.
 
The exchange agent and DTC have confirmed that the exchange offers are eligible for ATOP. The letter of transmittal (or facsimile thereof), with any required signature guarantees, or (in the case of book-entry transfer) an agent’s message in lieu of the letter of transmittal, and any other required documents, must be transmitted to and received by the exchange agent on or prior to the expiration date of the applicable exchange offer at one of its addresses set forth under “— Exchange Agent” in this prospectus or as set forth in the letter of transmittal. Original Notes will not be deemed surrendered until the letter of transmittal and signature guarantees, if any, or agent’s message, are received by the exchange agent.
 
The method of delivery of Original Notes, the letter of transmittal, and all other required documents to the exchange agent is at the election and risk of the holder. Instead of delivery by mail, holders should use an overnight or hand delivery service, properly insured. In all cases, sufficient time should be allowed to assure delivery to and receipt by the exchange agent on or before the expiration date, or, if the guaranteed delivery procedures described below are complied with, within the time period provided under those procedures. Do not send the letter of transmittal or any Original Notes to anyone other than the exchange agent.
 
All Exchange Notes will be delivered only in book-entry form through DTC. Accordingly, if you anticipate tendering other than through DTC, you are urged to contact promptly a bank, broker or other intermediary (that has the capability to hold securities custodially through DTC) to arrange for receipt of any Exchange Notes to be delivered to you pursuant to the exchange offers and to obtain the information necessary to provide the required DTC participant with account information for the letter of transmittal.
 
Book-Entry Delivery Procedures for Tendering Original Notes Held with DTC
 
If you wish to tender Original Notes held on your behalf by a custodial entity with DTC, you must:
 
(i) inform your custodial entity of your interest in tendering your Original Notes pursuant to the applicable exchange offer; and
 
(ii) instruct your custodial entity to tender all Original Notes you wish to be tendered in the applicable exchange offer into the exchange agent’s account at DTC on or prior to the expiration date. Any financial institution that is a nominee in DTC, including Euroclear and Clearstream, must tender Original Notes by effecting a book-entry transfer of the Original Notes to be tendered in the applicable exchange offer into the account of the exchange agent at DTC by electronically transmitting its acceptance of such exchange offer through the ATOP procedures for transfer. DTC will then verify the acceptance, execute a book-entry delivery to the exchange agent’s account at DTC, and send an agent’s


77


Table of Contents

message to the exchange agent. An “agent’s message” is a message, transmitted by DTC to and received by the exchange agent and forming part of a book-entry confirmation, which states that DTC has received an express acknowledgement from an organization that participates in DTC (a “participant”) tendering Original Notes that the participant has received and agrees to be bound by the terms of the letter of transmittal and that we may enforce the agreement against the participant. A letter of transmittal need not accompany tenders effected through ATOP.
 
Proper Execution and Delivery of Letter of Transmittal
 
Signatures on a letter of transmittal or notice of withdrawal described below (see “— Withdrawal of Tenders”), as the case may be, must be guaranteed by an “eligible guarantor institution” within the meaning of Rule 17Ad-15 under the Exchange Act unless the Original Notes tendered pursuant to the letter of transmittal are tendered (i) by a holder who has not completed the box entitled “Special Delivery Instructions” or “Special Issuance and Payment Instructions” on the letter of transmittal or (ii) for the account of an eligible guarantor institution.
 
If the letter of transmittal is signed by the holder(s) of Original Notes tendered thereby, the signature(s) must correspond with the name(s) as written on the face of the Original Notes without alteration, enlargement or any change whatsoever. If any of the Original Notes tendered thereby are held by two or more holders, all such holders must sign the letter of transmittal. If any of the Original Notes tendered thereby are registered in different names on different Original Notes, it will be necessary to complete, sign and submit as many separate letters of transmittal, and any accompanying documents, as there are different registrations of certificates.
 
If Original Notes that are not tendered for exchange pursuant to the exchange offers are to be returned to a person other than the holder thereof, certificates for such Original Notes must be endorsed or accompanied by an appropriate instrument of transfer, signed exactly as the name of the registered owner appears on the certificates, with the signatures on the certificates or instruments of transfer guaranteed by an eligible guarantor institution.
 
If the letter of transmittal is signed by a person other than the holder of any Original Notes listed therein, such Original Notes must be properly endorsed or accompanied by a properly completed bond power, signed by such holder exactly as such holder’s name appears on such Original Notes. If the letter of transmittal or any Original Notes, bond powers or other instruments of transfer are signed by trustees, executors, administrators, guardians, attorneys-in-fact, officers of corporations or others acting in a fiduciary or representative capacity, such persons should so indicate when signing, and, unless waived by us, evidence satisfactory to us of their authority to so act must be submitted with the letter of transmittal.
 
No alternative, conditional, irregular or contingent tenders will be accepted. By executing the letter of transmittal (or facsimile thereof), the tendering holders of Original Notes waive any right to receive any notice of the acceptance for exchange of their Original Notes. Tendering holders should indicate in the applicable box in the letter of transmittal the name and address to which Exchange Notes and/or substitute certificates evidencing Original Notes for amounts not tendered or not exchanged are to be issued or sent, if different from the name and address of the person signing the letter of transmittal. If no such instructions are given, Original Notes not tendered or exchanged will be returned to such tendering holder.
 
All questions as to the validity, form, eligibility (including time of receipt), and acceptance and withdrawal of tendered Original Notes will be determined by us in our absolute discretion, which determination will be final and binding. We reserve the absolute right to reject any and all tendered Original Notes determined by us not to be in proper form or not to be properly tendered or any tendered Original Notes our acceptance of which would, in the opinion of our counsel, be unlawful. We also reserve the right to waive, in our absolute discretion, any defects, irregularities or conditions of tender as to particular Original Notes, whether or not waived in the case of other Original Notes. Our interpretation of the terms and conditions of the exchange offers (including the instructions in the letter of transmittal) will be final and binding on all parties. Unless waived, any defects or irregularities in connection with tenders of Original Notes must be cured within such time as we shall determine. Although we intend to notify holders of defects or irregularities with respect to tenders of Original Notes, neither we, the exchange agent nor any other person will be under any


78


Table of Contents

duty to give such notification or shall incur any liability for failure to give any such notification. Tenders of Original Notes will not be deemed to have been made until such defects or irregularities have been cured or waived.
 
Any holder whose Original Notes have been mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed will be responsible for obtaining replacement securities or for arranging for indemnification with the trustee of the Original Notes. Holders may contact the exchange agent for assistance with such matters.
 
Guaranteed Delivery Procedures
 
Holders wishing to tender their Original Notes but whose Original Notes are not immediately available or who cannot deliver their Original Notes, the letter of transmittal or any other required documents to the exchange agent or cannot comply with the applicable procedures described above before expiration of the exchange offers may tender if:
 
(i) the tender is made through an eligible guarantor institution, as defined above under “— Proper Execution and Delivery of Letter of Transmittal,”
 
(ii) before expiration of the exchange offers, the exchange agent receives from the eligible guarantor institution either a properly completed and duly executed notice of guaranteed delivery, by facsimile transmission, mail or hand delivery, or a properly transmitted agent’s message and notice of guaranteed delivery, in each case:
 
  •  setting forth the name and address of the holder and the registered number(s) and the principal amount of Original Notes tendered, and
 
  •  stating that the tender is being made by guaranteed delivery, and guaranteeing that, within three New York Stock Exchange trading days after expiration of the exchange offer, the letter of transmittal, or facsimile thereof, together with the Original Notes or a book-entry transfer confirmation, and any other documents required by the letter of transmittal will be deposited by the eligible guarantor institution with the exchange agent, and
 
(iii) the exchange agent receives the properly completed and executed letter of transmittal, or facsimile thereof, as well as all tendered Original Notes in proper form for transfer or a book-entry transfer confirmation, and all other documents required by the letter of transmittal, within three New York Stock Exchange trading days after expiration of the exchange offers.
 
Upon request to the exchange agent, a notice of guaranteed delivery will be sent to holders who wish to tender their Original Notes according to the guaranteed delivery procedures set forth above.
 
Withdrawal of Tenders
 
You may withdraw tenders of Original Notes at any time prior to the expiration date.
 
For a withdrawal of a tender to be effective, a written or facsimile transmission notice of withdrawal must be received by the exchange agent prior to the deadline described above at its address set forth under “— Exchange Agent” in this prospectus. The withdrawal notice must:
 
  •  specify the name of the person who tendered the Original Notes to be withdrawn;
 
  •  contain a description of the Original Notes to be withdrawn, the certificate numbers shown on the particular certificates evidencing such Original Notes and the aggregate principal amount represented by such Original Notes; and
 
  •  be signed by the holder of those Original Notes in the same manner as the original signature on the letter of transmittal, including any required signature guarantees, or be accompanied by evidence satisfactory to us that the person withdrawing the tender has succeeded to the beneficial ownership of the Original Notes. In addition, the notice of withdrawal must specify, in the case of Original Notes tendered by delivery of certificates for such Original Notes, the name of the registered holder, if


79


Table of Contents

  different from that of the tendering holder or, in the case of Original Notes tendered by book-entry transfer, the name and number of the account at DTC to be credited with the withdrawn Original Notes. The signature on the notice of withdrawal must be guaranteed by an eligible institution unless the Original Notes have been tendered for the account of an eligible institution.
 
Withdrawal of tenders of Original Notes may not be rescinded, and any Original Notes properly withdrawn will be deemed not validly tendered for purposes of these exchange offers. Properly withdrawn Original Notes may, however, be retendered by again following one of the procedures described in “— Procedures for Tendering” prior to the expiration date.
 
Exchange Agent
 
The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. has been appointed the exchange agent for these exchange offers. Letters of transmittal, notices of guaranteed delivery and all correspondence in connection with these exchange offers should be sent or delivered by each holder of Original Notes, or a beneficial owner’s commercial bank, broker, dealer, trust company or other nominee, to the exchange agent as follows:
 
     
By Mail or Hand Delivery:
  The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation
Corporate Trust Operations
Reorganization Unit
101 Barclay Street — 7 East
New York, New York 10286
Attn: Mr. David Mauer

Corporate Trust Operations

  (212) 815-3687
Corporate Trust Operations
Reorganization Unit
 
We will pay the exchange agent reasonable and customary fees for its services and will reimburse it for its reasonable, out-of-pocket expenses in connection with the exchange offers.
 
Fees and Expenses
 
We will bear the expenses of soliciting tenders. The principal solicitation is being made by mail. However, we may make additional solicitations by telegraph, telephone or in person by our officers and regular employees and those of our affiliates.
 
We have not retained any dealer-manager in connection with the exchange offers and will not make any payments to broker-dealers or others soliciting acceptances of the exchange offers. We may, however, pay the exchange agent reasonable and customary fees for its services and reimburse it for its related reasonable out-of-pocket expenses. We will pay the other cash expenses incurred in connection with the exchange offers.
 
Transfer Taxes
 
We will pay all transfer taxes, if any, applicable to the exchange of Original Notes under the exchange offers. The tendering holder, however, will be required to pay any transfer taxes, whether imposed on the registered holder or any other person, if:
 
  •  Exchange Notes are to be delivered to, or issued in the name of, any person other than the registered holder of the Original Notes so exchanged,
 
  •  tendered Original Notes are registered in the name of any person other than the person signing the letter of transmittal, or


80


Table of Contents

 
  •  a transfer tax is imposed for any reason other than the exchange of Original Notes under the respective exchange offer.
 
If satisfactory evidence of payment of transfer taxes is not submitted with the letter of transmittal, the amount of any transfer taxes will be billed to the tendering holder.
 
Accounting Treatment
 
We will record the Exchange Notes at the same carrying value as the Original Notes as reflected in our accounting records on the date of the exchange. Accordingly, we will not recognize any gain or loss for accounting purposes upon completion of the exchange offers.
 
Consequences of Failure to Tender
 
All untendered Original Notes will remain subject to the restrictions on transfer provided for in the Original Notes and in the indenture. The Original Notes that are not exchanged for Exchange Notes pursuant to the exchange offers will remain restricted securities. Accordingly, such Original Notes may be resold only:
 
  •  to us (upon redemption thereof or otherwise),
 
  •  pursuant to a registration statement which has been declared effective under the Securities Act,
 
  •  for so long as the Original Notes are eligible for resale pursuant to Rule l44A, to a person the holder of the Original Notes and any person acting on its behalf reasonably believes is a “qualified institutional buyer” as defined in Rule l44A, that purchases for its own account or for the account of another qualified institutional buyer, in each case to whom notice is given that the transfer is being made in reliance on Rule l44A, or
 
  •  pursuant to any other available exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act (in which case we and the trustee shall have the right to require the delivery of an opinion of counsel, certifications and/or other information satisfactory to us and the trustee),
 
in each case subject to compliance with any applicable foreign, state or other securities laws.
 
Upon completion of the exchange offers, due to the restrictions on transfer of the Original Notes and the absence of such restrictions applicable to the Exchange Notes, it is likely that the market, if any, for Original Notes will be relatively less liquid than the market for Exchange Notes. Consequently, holders of Original Notes who do not participate in the respective exchange offer could experience significant diminution in the value of their Original Notes, compared to the value of the Exchange Notes. The holders of Original Notes not tendered will have no further registration rights, except that, under limited circumstances, we may be required to file a shelf registration statement with respect to the Original Notes.
 
Information Regarding the Registration Rights Agreement
 
As noted above, we are effecting the exchange offers to comply with the registration rights agreement. The registration rights agreement requires us to:
 
  •  use commercially reasonable efforts to cause to be filed as soon as practicable (and in no event later than 270 days) after July 16, 2010 an exchange offer registration statement with the SEC;
 
  •  use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the exchange offer registration statement to become effective within 360 days after July 16, 2010 (the “Effectiveness Deadline”);
 
  •  use commercially reasonable efforts to consummate the exchange offers as soon as practicable (and in no event later than 30 business days) after the exchange offer registration statement becomes effective; and
 
  •  cause to be filed a shelf registration statement for the resale of the Original Notes under certain circumstances and to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause such registration statement to become effective under the Securities Act.


81


Table of Contents

 
The requirements under the registration rights agreement described in the first three bullets above will be satisfied when we complete the exchange offer.
 
If we have not exchanged the Exchange Notes of either series for all Original Notes of such series validly tendered in accordance with the terms of the applicable exchange offer on or before the 30th business day after the Effectiveness Deadline or, if applicable, a shelf registration statement covering resales of the Original Notes of such series has not been declared effective within the time period required by the registration rights agreement or such shelf registration statement ceases to be effective at any time during the shelf registration period (subject to certain exceptions), then additional interest shall accrue on the principal amount of the Original Notes of such series at a rate of 0.25% per annum for the first 90-day period immediately following the occurrence of such event and by an additional 0.25% per annum with respect to each subsequent 90-day period, up to a maximum additional rate of 0.75% per annum thereafter, until such exchange offer is completed, the shelf registration statement is declared effective or, if such shelf registration statement ceased to be effective, again becomes effective, as described in the registration rights agreement.
 
Under the registration rights agreement, we have also agreed to keep the registration statement for the exchange offers effective for not less than 20 business days (or longer, if required by applicable law) after the date on which notice of the exchange offers is mailed to holders.
 
Our obligations to register the notes will terminate upon the completion of the exchange offers. However, under certain circumstances specified in the registration rights agreement, we may be required to file a shelf registration statement with respect to the Original Notes.
 
This summary includes only the material terms of the registration rights agreement. For a full description, you should refer to the complete copy of the registration rights agreement, which has been filed as an exhibit to the registration statement relating to the exchange offers and the Exchange Notes. See “Where You Can Find More Information.”

CERTAIN U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSIDERATIONS
 
General
 
The following is a summary of material U.S. federal income tax consequences of the exchange of Original Notes for Exchange Notes pursuant to the exchange offers, but does not address any other aspects of U.S. federal income tax consequences to holders of Original Notes or Exchange Notes. This summary is based upon the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), the Treasury Regulations promulgated or proposed thereunder, and administrative and judicial interpretations thereof, all as of the date hereof and all of which are subject to change, possibly on a retroactive basis. This summary is not binding on the Internal Revenue Service (the “Service”) or on the courts, and no ruling will be sought from the Service with respect to the statements made and the conclusions reached in this summary. There can be no assurance that the Service will agree with such statements and conclusions.
 
This summary is limited to the U.S. federal income tax consequences of those persons who are the original beneficial owner of the Original Notes, who exchange Original Notes for Exchange Notes in these exchange offers and who hold the Original Notes as capital assets within the meaning of Section 1221 of the Code, which we refer to in this section as “Holders.” This summary does not address specific tax consequences that may be relevant to particular persons, including banks, financial institutions, broker-dealers, insurance companies, real estate investment trusts, regulated investment companies, partnerships or other pass-through entities, expatriates, tax-exempt organizations and persons that have a functional currency other than the U.S. dollar or persons in special situations, such as those who have elected to mark securities to market or those who hold the notes as part of a straddle, hedge, conversion transaction or other integrated investment. In addition, this summary does not address tax consequences arising under the unearned income Medicare contribution tax pursuant to the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, nor does it address U.S. federal alternative minimum tax consequences, estate and gift tax consequences, consequences under the tax laws of any state, local or foreign jurisdiction, or consequences under any U.S. federal tax laws other than income tax law.
 
If a partnership or other entity taxable as a partnership holds Original Notes, the tax treatment of a partner in the partnership generally will depend upon the status of the partner and the activities of the partnership. If you are a partner of a partnership holding Original Notes, you should consult your tax advisor regarding the tax consequences of the exchange of Original Notes for Exchange Notes pursuant to the exchange offers.
 
THIS SUMMARY IS FOR GENERAL INFORMATION ONLY. PERSONS CONSIDERING THE EXCHANGE OF ORIGINAL NOTES FOR EXCHANGE NOTES ARE URGED TO CONSULT THEIR OWN TAX ADVISORS CONCERNING THE U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSEQUENCES TO THEM OF EXCHANGING THE ORIGINAL NOTES, AS WELL AS THE APPLICATION OF STATE, LOCAL AND FOREIGN TAX LAWS AND U.S. FEDERAL TAX LAWS OTHER THAN INCOME TAX LAW.
 
Exchange of an Original Note for an Exchange Note Pursuant to these Exchange Offers
 
The exchange of the Original Notes for the Exchange Notes in the exchange offers described herein should not constitute a significant modification of the terms of the Original Notes and thus should not constitute a taxable exchange for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Rather, the Exchange Notes should be treated as a continuation of the Original Notes. Consequently, a Holder should not recognize gain or loss upon receipt of the Exchange Notes in the exchange offers, the Holder’s basis in the Exchange Notes should be the same as its basis in the Original Notes immediately before the exchange, and the Holder’s holding period in the Exchange Notes should include its holding period in the Original Notes.

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION
 
Each broker-dealer that receives Exchange Notes for its own account pursuant to the exchange offers must acknowledge that it will deliver a prospectus meeting the requirements of the Securities Act in connection with any resale of such Exchange Notes. This prospectus, as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, may be used by a broker-dealer in connection with resales of Exchange Notes received in exchange for Original Notes where such Original Notes were acquired as a result of market-making activities or other trading activities. We have agreed that we will make this prospectus, as amended or supplemented, available to any broker-dealer for use in connection with any such resale until the earlier of 90 days after the date the exchange offer registration statement becomes effective and the date on which a broker-dealer is no longer required to deliver a prospectus in connection with market-making or other trading activities.
 
We will not receive any proceeds from any sale of Exchange Notes by broker-dealers. Exchange Notes received by broker-dealers for their own account pursuant to the applicable exchange offer may be sold from time to time in one or more transactions in the over-the-counter market, in negotiated transactions, through the writing of options on the Exchange Notes or a combination of such methods of resale, at market prices prevailing at the time of resale, at prices related to such prevailing market prices or negotiated prices. Any such resale may be made directly to purchasers or to or through brokers or dealers who may receive compensation in the form of commissions or concessions from any such broker-dealer and/or the purchasers of any Exchange Notes. Any broker-dealer that resells Exchange Notes that were received by it for its own account pursuant to the exchange offers and any broker or dealer that participates in a distribution of such Exchange Notes may be deemed to be an “underwriter” within the meaning of the Securities Act and any profit on any such resale of Exchange Notes and any commission or concessions received by any such persons may be deemed to be underwriting compensation under the Securities Act. The letter of transmittal states that, by acknowledging that it will deliver and by delivering a prospectus, a broker-dealer will not be deemed to admit that it is an “underwriter” within the meaning of the Securities Act.
 
Until the earlier of 90 days after the date the exchange offer registration statement becomes effective and the date on which a broker-dealer is no longer required to deliver a prospectus in connection with market-making or other trading activities, we will promptly send additional copies of this prospectus and any amendment or supplement to this prospectus to any broker-dealer that requests such documents in the letter of transmittal. Pursuant to the registration rights agreement, we have agreed to pay all expenses incident to the exchange offers (including the expenses of one counsel for the holders of the notes), other than underwriting discounts and commissions, and will indemnify the holders of the notes (including any broker-dealers) against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act.

Item 20.   Indemnification of Directors and Officers
 
Fidelity National Information Services, Inc.
 
Georgia Business Corporation Code.  Subsection (a) of Section 14-2-851 of the Georgia Business Corporation Code (the “GABCC”) provides that a corporation may indemnify an individual made a party to a proceeding because he or she is or was a director against liability incurred in the proceeding if: (a) such individual conducted himself or herself in good faith; and (b) such individual reasonably believed: (i) in the case of conduct in his or her official capacity, that such conduct was in the best interests of the corporation; (ii) in all other cases, that such conduct was at least not opposed to the best interests of the corporation; and (iii) in the case of any criminal proceeding, that the individual had no reasonable cause to believe such conduct was unlawful. Subsection (d) of Section 14-2-851 of the GABCC provides that a corporation may not indemnify a director: (1) in connection with a proceeding by or in the right of the corporation, except for reasonable expenses incurred in connection with the proceeding if it is determined that the director has met the relevant standard of conduct; or (2) in connection with any proceeding with respect to conduct for which he or she was adjudged liable on the basis that personal benefit was improperly received by him or her, whether or not involving action in his or her official capacity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, pursuant to Section 14-2-854, a court shall order a corporation to indemnify or give an advance for expenses to a director if such court determines the director is entitled to indemnification under Section 14-2-854 or if it determines that in view of all relevant circumstances, it is fair and reasonable, even if the director has not met the standard of conduct set forth in subsections (a) and (b) of Section 14-2-851 of the GABCC or was adjudged liable in a proceeding referred to in subsection (d) of Section 14-2-851 of the GABCC, but if the director was adjudged so liable, the indemnification shall be limited to reasonable expenses incurred by the director in connection with the proceeding.
 
Section 14-2-852 of the GABCC provides that a corporation shall indemnify a director who was wholly successful, on the merits or otherwise, in the defense of any proceeding to which the director was a party because he or she was a director of the corporation against reasonable expenses incurred by the director in connection with the proceeding. Subsection (c) of Section 14-2-857 of the GABCC provides that an officer of the corporation who is not a director is entitled to mandatory indemnification under Section 14-2-852 and may apply to a court under Section 14-2-854 for indemnification or advances for expenses, in each case to the same extent to which a director may be entitled to indemnification or advances for expenses under those provisions.
 
FIS’ Bylaws.  Article V of FIS’ amended and restated bylaws require it to indemnify and hold harmless any director or officer who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party, to any threatened, pending, or completed action, suit or proceeding whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative, including any action or suit by or in the right of FIS, because such person is or was a director or officer of FIS against liability incurred in such proceeding. FIS’ bylaws generally prohibit it from indemnifying any officer or director who is adjudged liable to FIS or is subjected to injunctive relief in favor of FIS for:
 
  •  any appropriation, in violation of the director’s or officer’s duties, of any business opportunity;
 
  •  acts or omissions that involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;
 
  •  unlawful corporate distributions as set forth in Section 14-2-832 of the GABCC; or
 
  •  any transactions from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.
 
FIS’ bylaws require FIS, under certain circumstances, to advance expenses to its officers and directors who are parties to an action, suit, or proceeding for which indemnification may be sought. FIS directors and officers are insured against losses arising from any claim against them as such for wrongful acts or omissions, subject to certain limitations.

In actions brought by or in the right of the corporation, a corporation may indemnify such person against expenses and amounts paid in settlement not exceeding, in the judgment of the board of directors, the estimated expense of litigating the proceeding to conclusion, actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with the defense or settlement of such proceeding, including any appeal thereof, if such person acted in good faith and in a manner that such person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, except that no indemnification may be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been adjudged to be liable to the corporation unless and only to the extent that the court in which such action or suit was brought shall determine upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnification for such expenses that the court shall deem proper. Section 607.0850(6) of the FLBCA permits the corporation to pay such costs or expenses in advance of a final disposition of such action or proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the director or officer to repay such amount if he or she is ultimately found not to be entitled to indemnification under the FLBCA.

Under the NVGCL, companies also have the authority to indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation, to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that he is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust of other enterprise against expenses, including amounts paid in settlement, and attorneys’ fees actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with the defense or settlement of the action or suit if he acted in good faith and in a manner which he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation.

Indemnification is also required in other instances, unless the director or officer is personally liable because the director or officer breached or failed to perform a duty that he or she owes to the corporation and the breach or failure to perform constitutes any of the following: a willful failure to deal fairly with the corporation or its shareholders in connection with a matter in which the director or officer has a material conflict of interest; a violation of the criminal law, unless the director or officer had reasonable cause to believe that his or her conduct was lawful or no reasonable cause to believe that his or her conduct was unlawful; a transaction from which the director or officer derived an improper personal benefit; or willful misconduct.
 
The WBCL provides that reasonable expenses incurred by a director or officer who is a party to a proceeding may be paid or reimbursed by a corporation at such time as the director or officer furnishes to the corporation a written affirmation of his or her good-faith belief that he or she has not breached or failed to perform his or her duties to the corporation and a written undertaking to repay any amounts advanced if it is determined that indemnification by the corporation is not required.
