ARTICLE I

EIGHTY-SEVENTH SERIES OF BONDS
SECTION 1.    There shall be a series of bonds designated “4.00% Series due June 1, 2028” (herein sometimes called the “Eighty-seventh Series”), each of which shall also bear the descriptive title “First Mortgage Bond”, and the form thereof, which shall be established by Resolution of the Board of Directors of the Company, shall contain suitable provisions with respect to the matters hereinafter in this Section specified. Bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series (which shall be initially issued in the aggregate principal amount of $250,000,000 shall mature on June 1, 2028, shall be issued as fully registered bonds in the denomination of One thousand Dollars and, at the option of the Company, in any multiple or multiples of One thousand Dollars (the exercise of such option to be evidenced by the execution and delivery thereof), shall bear interest at the rate of 4.00% per annum, the first interest payment to be made on December 1, 2018, for the period from May 11, 2018, to December 1, 2018, with subsequent interest payments payable semi-annually in arrears on June 1 and December 1 of each year (each an “Interest Payment Date”), shall be dated as in Section 10 of the Mortgage provided, and the principal of and interest on each said bond shall be payable at the office or agency of the Company in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York, in such coin or currency of the United States of America as at the time of payment is legal tender for public and private debts.

Interest on the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months. In any case where any Interest Payment Date, redemption date or maturity of any bond of the Eighty-seventh Series shall not be a Business Day, then payment of interest or principal need not be made on such date, but may be made on the next succeeding Business Day, with the same force and effect, and in the same amount, as if made on the corresponding Interest Payment Date or redemption date, or at maturity, as the case may be, and, if such payment is made or duly provided for on such Business Day,





no interest shall accrue on the amount so payable for the period from and after such Interest Payment Date, redemption date or maturity, as the case may be, to such Business Day. “Business Day” means any day, other than a Saturday or a Sunday, or a day on which banking institutions in The City of New York are authorized or required by law or executive order to remain closed or a day on which the corporate trust office of the Corporate Trustee is closed for business.
So long as all of the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series are held by The Depository Trust Company or its nominee, or a successor thereof, the record date for the payment of interest on the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series shall be the Business Day immediately preceding the corresponding Interest Payment Date; provided, however, that the record date for the payment of interest which is paid after such Interest Payment Date, shall be the Business Day immediately preceding the date on which such interest is paid. Interest on the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series shall be paid to the Person in whose name such bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series are registered at the close of business on the record date for the corresponding Interest Payment Date.
(I) Form of Bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series.
The Bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series, and the Corporate Trustee’s authentication certificate to be executed on the Bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series, shall be in substantially the following forms, respectively:

(II)    The bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series shall be redeemable at the option of the Company, in whole or in part, upon notice, mailed not less than 30 days nor more than 60 days prior to the date fixed for redemption, at any time prior to March 1, 2028, at a redemption price equal to the greater of (i) 100% of the principal amount of the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series being redeemed and (ii) as determined by the Independent Investment Banker, the sum of (x) the present value of the payment on March 1, 2028 of the principal amount of the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series being redeemed plus (y) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of interest on the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series being redeemed to March 1, 2028 (excluding the portion of any such interest accrued to the redemption date), discounted (for purposes of determining such present values) to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Adjusted Treasury Rate plus 0.20% plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but not including, the redemption date.
As used herein, the following defined terms shall have the respective meanings specified unless the context clearly requires otherwise:
The term “Adjusted Treasury Rate” shall mean, with respect to any redemption date:
(1)    the yield, under the heading which represents the average for the immediately preceding week, appearing in the most recently published statistical release designated “H.15(519)” or any successor publication which is published weekly by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and which establishes yields on actively traded United States Treasury securities adjusted to constant maturity under the caption “Treasury Constant Maturities,” for the maturity corresponding to the Comparable Treasury Issue (if no maturity is within three months before or after the remaining term of the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series being redeemed (assuming, for this purpose, that such bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series mature on March 1, 2028), yields for the two published maturities most closely corresponding to the Comparable Treasury Issue shall be determined and the Adjusted Treasury Rate shall be interpolated or extrapolated from such yields on a straight line basis, rounding to the nearest month); or
(2)    if such release (or any successor release) is not published during the week preceding the calculation date for the Adjusted Treasury Rate or does not contain such yields, the rate per annum equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue, calculated using a price for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the Comparable Treasury Price for such redemption date.
The Adjusted Treasury Rate shall be calculated on the third Business Day preceding the redemption date.
The term “Comparable Treasury Issue” shall mean the United States Treasury security selected by the Independent Investment Banker as having a maturity comparable to the remaining term of the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series being redeemed (assuming, for this purpose, that such bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series mature on March 1, 2028) that would be utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities of comparable maturity to the remaining term of the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series being redeemed (assuming, for this purpose, that such bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series mature on March 1, 2028).
The term “Comparable Treasury Price” shall mean, with respect to any redemption date, (i) the average of five Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations for such redemption date after excluding the highest and lowest such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations or (ii) if the Independent Investment Banker obtains fewer than five such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, the average of all such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations.





The term “Independent Investment Banker” shall mean one of the Reference Treasury Dealers that the Company appoints to act as the Independent Investment Banker from time to time, or, if any of such firms is unwilling or unable to select the Comparable Treasury Issue, an independent investment banking institution of national standing appointed by the Company.
The term “Reference Treasury Dealer” shall mean any of (i) Barclays Capital Inc. and a Primary Treasury Dealer (as defined below) selected by each of BNY Mellon Capital Markets, LLC, KeyBanc Capital Markets Inc., SMBC Nikko Securities America, Inc. and Stephens Inc., or, in each case, an affiliate thereof, and their respective successors; provided, however, that if any of the foregoing shall cease to be a Primary U.S. Government securities dealer in New York City (a “Primary Treasury Dealer”), the Company will substitute therefor another Primary Treasury Dealer, and (ii) any other Primary Treasury Dealer selected by the Independent Investment Banker after consultation with the Company.
The term “Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations” shall mean, with respect to each Reference Treasury Dealer and any redemption date, the average, as determined by the Independent Investment Banker, of the bid and asked prices for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed in each case as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in writing to the Independent Investment Banker at 5:00 p.m. on the third Business Day preceding such redemption date.
The bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series shall also be redeemable at the option of the Company, in whole or in part, on not less than 30 days’ nor more than 60 days’ notice prior to the date fixed for redemption, at any time on or after March 1, 2028, at a redemption price equal to the principal amount of the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series being redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but not including, such redemption date.
If, at the time notice of redemption is given, the redemption monies are not held by the Corporate Trustee, the redemption may be made subject to the receipt of such monies before the date fixed for redemption, and such notice shall be of no effect unless such monies are so received.
(III)    At the option of the registered owner, any bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series, upon surrender thereof for cancellation at the office or agency of the Company in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York, shall be exchangeable for a like aggregate principal amount of bonds of the same series of other authorized denominations.
Bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series shall be transferable, upon the surrender thereof for cancellation, together with a written instrument of transfer in form approved by the registrar duly executed by the registered owner or by his duly authorized attorney, at the office or agency of the Company in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York.
Upon any exchange or transfer of bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series, the Company may make a charge therefor sufficient to reimburse it for any tax or taxes or other governmental charge, as provided in Section 12 of the Mortgage, but the Company hereby waives any right to make a charge in addition thereto for any exchange or transfer of bonds of said Series.
Upon the delivery of this Eightieth Supplemental Indenture and upon compliance with the applicable provisions of the Mortgage, as heretofore supplemented, there shall be an initial issue of bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series for the aggregate principal amount of $250,000,000. Additional bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series, without limitation as to amount, having substantially the same terms as the Outstanding bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series (except for the issue date, price to public and, if applicable, the initial interest payment





date) may be issued by the Company without the notice to or the consent of the existing holders of the bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series.

Section 44. The Company covenants and agrees
(1) to file with the Corporate Trustee (within 30 days after filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the case of reports which pursuant to the Trust Indenture Act must be filed with the Commission and furnished to the Corporate Trustee) and to transmit to the holders of the bonds then Outstanding hereunder, such other information, reports and other documents, if any, at such times and in such manner, as shall be required by the Trust Indenture Act; and
(2) to file with the Corporate Trustee, on or before October 1 of each year beginning with the October 1 immediately following the effective date of this amendment, a certificate, which need not comply with the requirements of Section 121 hereof, executed by the principal executive officer, the principal financial officer, or the principal accounting officer of the Company, as to such officer’s knowledge of the Company’s compliance with all conditions and covenants under this Indenture, such compliance to be determined without regard to any period of grace or requirement of notice under this Indenture, and making any other statements as may be required by the provisions of Section 314(a)(4) of the Trust Indenture Act.
Delivery of such reports, information and documents to the Corporate Trustee is for informational purposes only, and the Corporate Trustee’s receipt of such shall not constitute notice or constructive notice of any information contained therein or determinable from information contained therein, including the Company’s compliance with any of its covenants hereunder (as to which the Corporate Trustee is entitled to rely exclusively on Officers’ Certificates).
SECTION 2.Trustee Replacement and Publication Requirements. The Company reserves the right, without any consent, vote or other action by holders of bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series, or of any subsequent series, to amend the Mortgage, as heretofore amended and supplemented, as follows:
(A) to amend Sections 99, 101 and 102 thereof to remove all requirements for the publishing of notices of the resignation, removal, or appointment of any Trustee and to delete all references to the publication of such notices in the Mortgage, as heretofore amended and supplemented, including deletion of the words “the first publication of notice of” in the last sentence of the first paragraph of Section 102 thereof; and





(B) to amend Section 101 thereof to add a new paragraph at the end of such section reading substantially as follows:
So long as no event which is, or after notice or lapse of time, or both, would become, a Default shall have occurred and be continuing, and except with respect to a Trustee appointed by the bondholders as provided in Section 102 hereof, if the Company shall have delivered to the Trustees (i) resolutions of the Board of Directors appointing a successor Trustee to any Trustee (herein sometimes referred to as the “Predecessor Trustee”), effective as of a date specified therein (which shall be at least 30 days after the date of the delivery of such resolutions to the Trustees), and (ii) an instrument of acceptance of such appointment, effective as of such date, by such successor Trustee in accordance with Section 104 hereof, the Predecessor Trustee shall be deemed to have resigned as contemplated in Section 101 hereof, the successor Trustee shall be deemed to have been appointed by the Company pursuant to Section 102 hereof and such appointment shall be deemed to have been accepted as contemplated in Section 104 hereof, all as of such date, and all other provisions of Sections 101, 102, and 104 hereof, as the same may be amended or supplemented from time to time, shall be applicable to such resignation, appointment, and acceptance except to the extent inconsistent with this paragraph.
SECTION 3.Transfer of Less than Substantially All. The Company reserves the right, without any consent, vote or other action by holders of bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series, or of any subsequent series, to amend the Mortgage, as heretofore amended and supplemented, to add a new paragraph at the end of Section 85 thereof reading substantially as follows:

A conveyance, transfer, or lease by the Company of any part of the Mortgaged and Pledged Property shall not be deemed to constitute the conveyance, transfer or lease of all or substantially all of the Mortgaged and Pledged Property for purposes of this Indenture if the fair value of the Mortgaged and Pledged Property retained by the Company exceeds 167% of the aggregate principal amount of all Outstanding bonds issued under this Indenture and any other outstanding debt of the Company secured by a purchase money lien that ranks equally with, or senior to, such bonds with respect to such Mortgaged and Pledged Property. Such fair value shall be established by the delivery to the Corporate Trustee of an Independent Engineer’s Certificate stating the Independent Engineer’s opinion of such fair value as of a date not more than 90 days before or after such conveyance, transfer or lease. Article XVI of this Indenture is not intended to limit the Company’s conveyances, transfers or leases of less than substantially all of the Mortgaged and Pledged Property. This paragraph is not intended to create an inference that any conveyance, transfer or lease of any part of the Mortgaged and Pledged Property shall necessarily be deemed to constitute a conveyance, transfer, or lease of all or substantially all of the Mortgaged and Pledged Property for purposes of this Indenture where the fair value of the Mortgaged and Pledged Property retained by the Company is less than 167% of the aggregate principal amount of all Outstanding bonds and any other outstanding debt of the Company secured by a purchase money lien that ranks equally with, or senior to, such bonds with respect to such Mortgaged and Pledged Property.
SECTION 4.Merger into Company; Extent of Lien of the Indenture. The Company reserves the right, without any consent, vote or other action by holders of bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series, or of any subsequent series, to amend the Mortgage, as heretofore amended and supplemented, to add the following new paragraph to the end of Section 87 thereof reading substantially as follows:





In the case of a consolidation or merger after the consummation of which the Company would be the surviving or resulting entity, unless an indenture supplemental hereto shall otherwise provide, this Indenture shall not become or be, or be required to become or be, a lien upon any of the properties acquired by the Company in or as a result of such transaction or any improvements, extensions, or additions to such properties or any renewals, replacements, or substitutions of or for any part or parts thereof.
SECTION 5.Limitation on Bondholder Suits. The Company reserves the right, without any consent, vote or other action by holders of bonds of the Eighty-seventh Series, or of any other subsequent series, to amend Section 80 of the Mortgage, as heretofore amended and supplemented, to change the word “hereunder” wherever it appears in the first paragraph of Section 80 of the Mortgage to “under or with respect to this Indenture or the bonds.
