The interest so payable, and punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date will, as provided in the Indenture, be paid to the Person in whose name this Note (as defined below) (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered in the Security Register applicable to the Notes at the close of business on January 1 or July 1 (the “Regular Record Dates”), as the case may be, immediately preceding the applicable Interest Payment Date regardless of whether the Regular Record Date is a Business Day. Any such interest not so punctually paid or duly provided for shall forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on such Regular Record Date, and may either be paid to the Person in whose name this Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest to be fixed by the Trustee, notice whereof shall be given to Holders of Notes of this series not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date, or may be paid at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which the Notes may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, all as more fully provided in the Indenture. Interest will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months. If any principal of or premium, if any, or interest on any of the Notes is not paid when due, then such overdue principal and, to the extent permitted by law, such overdue premium or interest, as the case may be, shall bear interest, until paid or until such payment is duly provided for, at the rate of 3.650% per annum.

If this Note is a Global Security, all payments of principal, premium, if any, and interest in respect of this Note will be made by the Company by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account maintained by the payee located in the United States. If this Note is not a Global Security (a “Certificated Note”), payments of interest on this Note may, at the Company’s option, be made by mailing a check to the address of the Person entitled thereto as such address appears in the Security Register for the Notes or by wire transfer to an account maintained by the payee located in the United States, all on the terms set forth in the Indenture; provided, however, that a Holder of $5 million or more in aggregate principal amount of Certificated Notes will be entitled to receive payments of interest due on any Interest Payment Date by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account maintained by such Holder in the United States so long as such Holder has given appropriate wire transfer instructions to the Trustee or a Paying Agent for the Notes at least 15 calendar days prior to the applicable Interest Payment Date. Any such wire transfer instruction will remain in effect until revoked by such Holder or until such Person ceases to be a Holder of $5 million or more in aggregate principal amount of Certificated Notes.

 

Payments of principal of and premium, if any, and interest on Certificated Notes that are due and payable on the Final Maturity Date (as defined below), any Redemption Date or any other date on which principal of such Notes is due and payable will be made by wire transfer of immediately available funds to accounts maintained by the Holders thereof in the United States, so long as such Holders have given appropriate wire transfer instructions to the Trustee or a Paying Agent for the Notes, against surrender of such Notes to the Trustee or a Paying Agent for the Notes; provided that installments of interest on Certificated Notes that are due and payable on any Interest Payment Date falling on or prior to such Final Maturity Date, Redemption Date or other date on which principal of such Notes is payable will be paid in the manner described in the preceding paragraph to the Persons who were the Holders of such Notes (or one or more Predecessor Securities) registered as such at the close of business on the relevant Regular Record Dates according to their terms and the provisions of the Indenture.

 

This Note is one of a duly authorized issue of Securities of the Company (herein called the “Notes”), issued as a series of Securities under an indenture dated as of October 28, 1998 (herein called, together with all indentures supplemental thereto, the “Indenture”), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. (successor trustee to The Bank of New York), as trustee (the “Trustee,” which term includes any successor trustee under the Indenture with respect to the Notes), to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Company, the Trustee and the Holders of the Notes and of the terms upon which the Notes are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered. This Note is one of the duly authorized series designated as the “3.650% Notes due 2028.” All terms used in this Note which are defined in the Indenture and not defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Indenture.

(a) 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, and

 

(b) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal of and interest on the Notes to be redeemed (exclusive of interest accrued to the applicable Redemption Date), assuming the Notes matured and that accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes was payable on the Par Call Date, discounted to such Redemption Date on a semiannual basis, assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months, at the Treasury Rate plus 20 basis points,

 

plus, in the case of both clauses (a) and (b) above, accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed to such Redemption Date.

 

On and after the Par Call Date, the Notes may be redeemed at any time in whole or from time to time in part at the option of the Company at a Redemption Price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed to the applicable Redemption Date.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, installments of interest on Notes whose Stated Maturity is on or prior to a Redemption Date will be payable to the Holders of such Notes (or one or more Predecessor Securities) registered as such at the close of business on the relevant Regular Record Dates according to their terms and the provisions of the Indenture.

Notice of any redemption by the Company will be mailed at least 30 days but not more than 60 days before the applicable Redemption Date to each Holder of Notes to be redeemed.

 

The Indenture contains provisions for defeasance at any time of (a) the entire indebtedness of the Company on the Notes and (b) certain restrictive covenants and the related defaults and Events of Default applicable to the Company, in each case, upon compliance by the Company with certain conditions set forth in the Indenture, which provisions apply to this Note.

 

In addition to the covenants of the Company contained in the Indenture, the Company makes the following covenants with respect to, and for the benefit of the Holders of, the Notes:

 

Limitation on Incurrence of Total Debt. The Company will not, and will not permit any Subsidiary to, incur any Debt, other than Intercompany Debt, if, immediately after giving effect to the incurrence of such additional Debt and the application of the proceeds therefrom on a pro forma basis, the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Debt of the Company and its Subsidiaries on a consolidated basis determined in accordance with GAAP is greater than 60% of the sum of (i) the Company’s Total Assets as of the end of the latest fiscal quarter covered in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K or Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, as the case may be, most recently filed with the Commission (or, if such filing is not required under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), with the Trustee) prior to the incurrence of such additional Debt and (ii) the increase, if any, in Total Assets from the end of such quarter including, without limitation, any increase in Total Assets caused by the application of the proceeds of such additional Debt (such increase together with the Company’s Total Assets are referred to as the “Adjusted Total Assets”).

 

Limitation on Incurrence of Secured Debt. The Company will not, and will not permit any Subsidiary to, incur any Secured Debt, other than Intercompany Debt, if, immediately after giving effect to the incurrence of such additional Secured Debt and the application of the proceeds therefrom on a pro forma basis, the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Secured Debt of the Company and its Subsidiaries on a consolidated basis determined in accordance with GAAP is greater than 40% of the Company’s Adjusted Total Assets.

 

Debt Service Coverage. The Company will not, and will not permit any Subsidiary to, incur any Debt, other than Intercompany Debt, if the ratio of Consolidated Income Available for Debt Service to the Annual Debt Service Charge for the period consisting of the four consecutive fiscal quarters most recently ended prior to the date on which such additional Debt is to be incurred is less than 1.5 to 1.0, on a pro forma basis after giving effect to the incurrence of such Debt and the application of the proceeds therefrom, and calculated on the assumption that (i) such Debt and any other Debt incurred by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries since the first day of such four-quarter period and the application of the proceeds therefrom (including to refinance other Debt since the first day of such four-quarter period) had occurred on the first day of such period, (ii) the repayment or retirement of any other Debt of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries since the first day of such four-quarter period had occurred on the first day of such period (except that, in making such computation, the amount of Debt under any revolving credit facility, line of credit or similar facility shall be computed based upon the average daily balance of such Debt during such period), and (iii) in the case of any acquisition or disposition by the Company or any Subsidiary of any asset or group of assets since the first day of such four-quarter period, including, without limitation, by merger, stock purchase or sale, or asset purchase or sale, such acquisition or disposition had occurred on the first day of such period with the appropriate adjustments with respect to such acquisition or disposition being included in such pro forma calculation. If the Debt giving rise to the need to make the foregoing calculation or any other Debt incurred after the first day of the relevant four-quarter period bears interest at a floating rate then, for purposes of calculating the Annual Debt Service Charge, the interest rate on such Debt shall be computed on a pro forma basis as if the average interest rate which would have been in effect during the entire such four-quarter period had been the applicable rate for the entire such period.

 

Maintenance of Total Unencumbered Assets. The Company will maintain at all times Total Unencumbered Assets of not less than 150% of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Unsecured Debt of the Company and its Subsidiaries, computed on a consolidated basis in accordance with GAAP.
