Based upon the initial public offering price of $53.00 per share, Goldman Sachs will receive net proceeds from the U.S., international and Asia/Pacific offerings of $2.6 billion, after deducting the underwriting discounts and estimated expenses that are payable by Goldman Sachs in the offerings. The above amounts do not include underwriting discounts that will be received by Goldman, Sachs & Co., Goldman Sachs International and Goldman Sachs (Asia) L.L.C. as underwriters in the offerings. We will use the net proceeds to provide additional funds for our operations and for other general corporate purposes, although we have not yet determined a specific use. Pending specific application of the net proceeds, we intend to use them to purchase short-term marketable securities.

We will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale of shares of our common stock by Sumitomo Bank Capital Markets, Inc. or Kamehameha Activities Association.
