Notice to Holders of Allowed Claims Regarding Plan Distributions

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that in order to receive any distributions to which you may be entitled under the confirmed Modified Third Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and its Affiliated Debtors (the "Plan"), you must submit to Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC ("Epiq") both

  1. the appropriate Internal Revenue Service tax form ("Tax Form"), and
  2. a form certifying that neither you nor, to the best of your knowledge, any person or entity for whom you may be acting or who may be the beneficial owner of a claim, security, or interest that is in your name or control is a person or entity with whom it is illegal for a U.S. person to transact under (a) the Office of Foreign Assets Control sanctions regulations or (b) the list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (the "OFAC Certification").

Unless Epiq receives original copies of each of your properly completed Tax Form and OFAC Certification, you may not receive any distributions to which you may be entitled under the Plan.*

Please note that if you previously submitted a completed Tax Form and OFAC Certification there is no need to re-submit these forms in order to receive any subsequent distribution.

Blank Tax Forms and OFAC Certification Regarding Status are available for download below:

Tax Forms:

The required forms were previously mailed to all holders of allowed claims. A copy of the most recent letter mailed to parties whom Epiq had not recevied one or both of the required forms by March 23, 2012 (the "Request Letter") is available here. The Request Letter provides additional information concerning the type of Tax Form to be provided based on the nature of the payment and the status of the payee. Forms must be submitted to:

If by first-class mail:

*Holders of debt securities issued by LBHI for which an indenture trustee is the claim holder do not need to provide to the Debtors a Tax Form or OFAC Certification in order to receive a distribution. The Indenture Trustees are required to provide such forms to the Debtors relating to the claims.

Requests by Holders of Allowed Claims for Wire Transfers in lieu of Checks

The Debtors are providing creditors the option to have payments sent via wire transfer, for a fee, rather than by check. The per wire fee will be $20 for a transfer to a U.S. bank account or $35 for a transfer to a non-U.S. bank account (the "Wire Transfer Fee"). The Wire Transfer Fee will be deducted from the amount of the distribution you would otherwise receive. Please note that each Debtor will make its own distribution, and if a creditor is entitled to receive payments from more than one Debtor, a Wire Transfer Fee will be deducted from each payment. Each Debtor will, however, to the extent practicable, make aggregate distributions on account of all of the claims held by a particular creditor. All payments under the Plan will be made from bank accounts in the United States, denominated in U.S. Dollars. In order to receive distributions to which you may be entitled by wire, you must complete and return a Wire Request Form so that it is received by Epiq prior to the distribution record date for a given distribution. Please contact Epiq via email at lehmancallcenter@epiqsystems.com, or by phone at 866-879-0688 (toll-free from the U.S.), +1 503-597-7691 (non U.S.) for information about how to obtain a Wire Request Form.
