The Consent Solicitation relates to the direction and consent (each a "Consent") of holders of the Subject Notes with respect to (i) the proposed removal from World Financial Network Credit Card Master Trust (the "Receivables Trust") of private label credit card accounts relating to The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. credit card program and the reassignment to WFN Credit of all receivables relating to such accounts and (ii) the adoption of a proposed amendment to the pooling and servicing agreement governing the Receivables Trust (the "Proposed Amendment") to permit the Proposed Account Removal. Certain of the Issuer's asset-backed notes are not subject to the Consent Solicitation, including the Series 2016-B notes, which are expected to be retired prior to the effective date of the Proposed Amendment. 

The Consent Solicitation is being made in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in a Consent Solicitation Statement, dated August 7, 2018. The Consent Solicitation is scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 14, 2018, unless extended or earlier terminated (the "Expiration Date"). 

WFN Credit is soliciting the Consent of holders of not less than $2,157,059,000 (47.88%) of the aggregate principal balance of the Subject Notes as of the record date, which is August 6, 2018 (the "Requisite Consents").  The holders of the Series 2009-VFN notes issued by the Issuer have previously consented to the Proposed Account Removal and the Proposed Amendment, therefore, if the Consent Solicitation is successful, the holders of not less than 50.1% of the outstanding principal balance of the Issuer's outstanding notes as of the record date (excluding the Series 2016-B notes and all notes held by WFN Credit and its affiliates) will have provided Consents.

If the Requisite Consents are received, the Proposed Amendment becomes effective and certain other conditions described in the Consent Solicitation Statement are satisfied, holders of Subject Notes who validly deliver Consents in the manner described in the Consent Solicitation Statement will be eligible to receive a consent fee equal to $0.50 for each $1,000 principal amount of Subject Notes for which Consents have been validly delivered (and not validly revoked) prior to the Expiration Date.  Holders providing Consents after the Expiration Date will not receive the consent fee. 

Consents may be revoked prior to the Expiration Date in the manner described in the Consent Solicitation Statement.

A more comprehensive description of the Consent Solicitation, the Proposed Account Removal and the Proposed Amendment can be found in the Consent Solicitation Statement.
