Only holders who have duly completed and submitted an eligibility letter (which may be found at http://gbsc-usa.com/eligibility/honeywell) will be authorized to receive the Offering Memorandum and participate in the Exchange Offers (“Eligible Holders”). The eligibility letters will include certifications that the holders are either (1) “qualified institutional buyers” (“QIBs”) as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or (2) non-“U.S. persons” (as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act) located outside of the United States who are (i) not acting for the account or benefit of a U.S. person, (ii) “non-U.S. qualified offerees” (as defined in the Exchange Offer Documents), and (iii) not resident in Canada.
