                                                                      Documentation Requirements

  1. Completed, signed Electronic Filer Certification Form (see tab titled "Certification_Form")
  2. Single Completed Master ("Umbrella") Claim Form (only one Claim Form per file is required)
  3. Data file using the format specified in this document.

                   Electronic Claim Filing is intended for Institutions, Brokers and Nominees only. This is not used for Individual claimants.
              PDF files are ONLY accepted for Proof of Claim forms and accompanying Documents, NOT for holding data. Only a completed Excel worksheet
          using this format will be accepted for holding data files.

               Please fill out the Proof of Claim entirely and attach a list of Beneficial Owners on whose behalf your are filing (you may scan those documents and
          include on the disc as PDF files). We request that you either ship the electronic data (encrypted CD) with the Proof of Claim to the address provided (no
          e-mails) or upload it to our secured FTP site.

                Regarding Invalid Files - in the past Rust Consulting has worked with entities to help prepare and perfect invalid files so that they could be
          processed electronically. Oftentimes, this meant making corrections to files which were initially unacceptable when submitted. Because of the inherent
          risks this poses, we are required to REJECT any file that does not meet ALL filing requirements set forth in this document and in the Notice. Please be
          sure to check your file prior to submitting it.

                                                                         File Delivery Instructions
