As contemplated by the Offer to Purchase, ResCare further announced that it has called for redemption on January 21, 2011 (the "Redemption Date") all Notes not accepted for payment in the Offer (the "Redeemed Notes"). On the Redemption Date, the redemption price of $1,019.38 per $1,000 principal amount of the Redeemed Notes provided in the Indenture governing the Notes will become due and payable together with accrued and unpaid interest to the Redemption Date in an amount equal to $20.45 per $1,000 principal amount of the Redeemed Notes. The Redeemed Notes must be surrendered at the office of the trustee for holders of the Notes to collect the redemption price.
