The Company's $208 million of new debt consists of $78 million of floating rate senior secured notes due May 2025, with 50% of the interest in the first year paid in-kind rather than in cash, and $130 million of 5% convertible notes due November 2025, with all interest paid in-kind rather than in cash.

Based on current interest rates total cash interest payable on the notes is anticipated to be approximately $4.3 million in the first year and $8.6 million thereafter.
