We issued an additional $152 million of 10.5% Secured Notes in June and used a portion of the proceeds to redeem the remaining 5% Euro Notes earlier this month.

“We further strengthened our capital structure in the quarter with the exchange of $38 million of our 6% Convertible Notes for 10.8 million shares of stock. For fiscal 2012, we continue to forecast adjusted EBITDA, excluding foreign currency transaction gains or losses, in the range of $125 to $140 million."
