"U.S. law requires that the U.S. Congress must be afforded a formal opportunity to review the total proposed sale before the sales offer may be issued to the purchaser and that a law may be enacted to prohibit issuance of an Amendment for the total package. This LOA will be used to cover any expenses incurred for the program up to and including the cancellation of the Amendment. The purchaser will bear the risk that the offer may not be issued for reasons such as enactment of a prohibition."
