Prestige Brands accepted for purchase and payment all of such tendered Notes. As of the Consent Payment Deadline, consents from holders of 77.71% also had been received and not withdrawn, representing a sufficient amount to approve the proposed amendments, and on March 24, 2010, a supplement to the Indenture was executed effecting the proposed amendments.
