Calumet will publicly announce and notify the holders of the 2023 Notes and the Trustee (as defined below) if the foregoing condition is not satisfied, whereupon the redemption will be revoked and the 2023 Notes will remain outstanding.  Wilmington Trust, National Association is the trustee (the "Trustee") for the 2023 Notes and is serving as the paying agent for the redemption.
