Accordingly, Comstock has commenced an offer to exchange all of its outstanding 9¾% Senior Notes due 2026 (the "Original Notes"), which are not registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), for an equal principal amount of newly issued 9¾% Senior Notes due 2026 that have been registered under the Securities Act (the "Exchange Notes").
