Aeroflex accepted Notes validly tendered (and not withdrawn) and consents validly delivered (and not revoked) on or before the Early Participation Time for an amount equal to $1,088.07 per $1,000.00 principal amount of the Notes, which includes the early participation premium of $20.00, as described in the Offer to Purchase, dated April 25, 2011 (the "Offer to Purchase"). The Offer will be funded with a portion of the proceeds from a new term loan under a senior secured credit facility. To the extent the Offer is not consummated, the total consideration, the early participation premium and the tender offer consideration, will not be paid in respect of any Notes tendered in connection with the Offer, and any consents received in connection with the Consent Solicitation shall be deemed revoked.
