2Assumptions

 

The following opinions are given only as to, and based on, circumstances and matters of fact existing and known to us on the date of this opinion letter. These opinions only relate to the laws of the Cayman Islands which are in force on the date of this opinion letter. In giving the following opinions, we have relied (without further verification) upon the completeness and accuracy, as at the date of this opinion letter, of the Director's Certificates and the Certificates of Good Standing. We have also relied upon the following assumptions, which we have not independently verified:

 

2.1The Indenture has been or will be authorised and duly executed and unconditionally delivered by or on behalf of all relevant parties in accordance with all relevant laws (other than, with respect to the Guarantors, the laws of the Cayman Islands).

 

 

 

2.2The Indenture is, or will be, legal, valid, binding and enforceable against all relevant parties in accordance with its terms under the laws of the State of New York (the "Relevant Law") and all other relevant laws (other than, with respect to the Guarantors, the laws of the Cayman Islands).

 

2.3The choice of the Relevant Law as the governing law of the Indenture has been made in good faith and would be regarded as a valid and binding selection which will be upheld by any state or Federal court in the Borough of Manhattan, New York, New York, and any appellate court thereof (the "Relevant Jurisdiction") and any other relevant jurisdiction (other than the Cayman Islands) as a matter of the Relevant Law and all other relevant laws (other than the laws of the Cayman Islands).

 

2.4The Indenture has been duly executed, dated and unconditionally delivered by all parties thereto.

 

2.5Copies of documents, conformed copies or drafts of documents provided to us are true and complete copies of, or in the final forms of, the originals.

 

2.6All signatures, initials and seals are genuine.

 

2.7The capacity, power, authority and legal right of all parties under all relevant laws and regulations (other than, with respect to the Guarantors, as applicable, the laws and regulations of the Cayman Islands) to enter into, execute, unconditionally deliver and perform their respective obligations under the Indenture.

 

2.8There is no contractual or other prohibition or restriction (other than as arising under Cayman Islands law) binding on the Guarantors prohibiting or restricting them from entering into and performing their obligations under the Indenture.

 

2.9No monies paid to or for the account of any party under the Indenture or any property received or disposed of by any party to the Indenture in each case in connection with the Indenture or the consummation of the transactions contemplated thereby represent or will represent proceeds of criminal conduct or criminal property or terrorist property (as defined in the Proceeds of Crime Act (As Revised) and the Terrorism Act (As Revised), respectively).

 

2.10There is nothing under any law (other than the laws of the Cayman Islands) which would or might affect the opinions set out below. Specifically, we have made no independent investigation of the Relevant Law.

 

3Opinions

 

Based upon, and subject to, the foregoing assumptions and the qualifications set out below, and having regard to such legal considerations as we deem relevant, we are of the opinion that:

 

3.1Each Guarantor has been duly incorporated as an exempted company with limited liability and is validly existing and in good standing with the Registrar of Companies under the laws of the Cayman Islands.

 

3.2Each Guarantor has all requisite power and authority under its Memorandum and Articles to enter into, execute and perform their obligations under the Indenture to which it is a party, including the Guarantee.

 

 

 

3.3The execution, delivery and performance of the Indenture, including the Guarantee, have been authorised by and on behalf of the Guarantors and, assuming the Indenture has been executed and unconditionally delivered by any Authorized Person (as defined in the relevant Guarantor Resolutions) of the Guarantors, the Indenture, including the Guarantee, has been duly executed and delivered on behalf of the Guarantors and constitute the legal, valid and binding obligations of the Guarantors enforceable in accordance with its terms.

 

4Qualifications

 

The opinions expressed above are subject to the following qualifications:

 

4.1The term "enforceable" as used above means that the obligations assumed by the Guarantors under the Indenture are of a type which the courts of the Cayman Islands will enforce. It does not mean that those obligations will necessarily be enforced in all circumstances in accordance with their terms. In particular:

 

(a)enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, liquidation, reorganisation, readjustment of debts or moratorium or other laws of general application relating to or affecting the rights of creditors;

 

(b)enforcement may be limited by general principles of equity. For example, equitable remedies such as specific performance may not be available, inter alia, where damages are considered to be an adequate remedy;

 

(c)where obligations are to be performed in a jurisdiction outside the Cayman Islands, they may not be enforceable in the Cayman Islands to the extent that performance would be illegal under the laws of that jurisdiction; and

 

(d)some claims may become barred under relevant statutes of limitation or may be or become subject to defences of set off, counterclaim, estoppel and similar defences.

 

4.2To maintain each Guarantor in good standing with the Registrar of Companies under the laws of the Cayman Islands, annual filing fees must be paid and returns made to the Registrar of Companies within the time frame prescribed by law.

 

This opinion letter is given as of the date shown. We hereby consent to the reference to our firm under the caption “Legal Matters” in the Registration Statement and to the use of this opinion letter as an exhibit to the Registration Statement. In giving such consent, we do not hereby admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act.

 

We are aware that Kirkland & Ellis LLP and Conyers Dill & Pearman Limited will rely as to matters of Cayman Islands law on this opinion in rendering their opinions to you to be filed with the Registration Statement and we authorise them to so rely.

 

Yours faithfully
