We, as your counsel, have examined originals or copies, certified or otherwise identified to our satisfaction, of such documents and corporate records and such matters of fact and law that we have deemed necessary for the purpose of rendering the opinion expressed herein.

We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as an Exhibit to the Registration Statement. In giving this consent, we do not admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act.

Very truly yours,

 

/s/ Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP
