2020, $450,000 of the Senior Notes due 2021 and $20,000 of the Senior Notes due 2022. During 2017, we paid Mr. Doleshek and his spouse interest on senior notes held by both of them totaling $229,022.
Mr. Doleshek reported his intent to participate in the Tender Offer to the Company's Corporate Secretary prior to tendering his senior notes in the Tender Offer. Our Audit Committee reviewed the original purchases of the senior notes by Mr. Doleshek and his spouse, the payment of interest on senior notes held by Mr. Doleshek and his spouse, the tender by Mr. Doleshek of portions of his 6.8% Senior Notes due 2020 and his 6.875% Senior Notes due 2021, and the redemption of his 6.8% Senior Notes due 2018. The Audit Committee determined that these transactions did not conflict with the best interests of the Company or conflict with our Code of Conduct.
