The sales agents may act as agents on our behalf or purchase shares of our common stock as principal.

USE OF PROCEEDS

We may issue and sell shares of our common stock having aggregate sales proceeds of up to $5.0 billion from time to time. Because there is no minimum offering amount required as a condition to close this offering, the actual total public offering amount, commissions and proceeds to us, if any, are not determinable at this time.

We currently intend to use the net proceeds from this offering to further strengthen our balance sheet, as well as for general corporate purposes. Pending use of the proceeds as described above, we intend to invest the proceeds in highly liquid cash equivalents or United States government securities."
