Lehman Bankruptcy Update: Lehman Plan Becomes Effective; Distributions to Begin April 17

March 2012

On March 6, 2012, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and its affiliated debtors announced that their Modified Third Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan, which had been confirmed by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York on December 6, 2011, had become effective. Distributions under the Plan will begin on April 17, 2012.

Anyone entitled to receive a distribution under the Plan must submit the appropriate Internal Revenue Service tax form and a certification required by the Office of Foreign Assets Control by March 23, 2012. If you are entitled to receive a distribution under the Plan but are unsure whether you have submitted the appropriate tax form and OFAC certification, we encourage you to contact us immediately.

We will continue to monitor the progress of these cases closely and answer any questions you have about the Plan or any other aspect of the Debtors' cases.
