(e)                         Every Note authenticated and delivered upon registration of transfer of, or in exchange for or in lieu of, a Global Security or any portion thereof shall be authenticated and delivered in the form of, and shall be, a Global Security, unless such Note is registered in the name of a Person other than the Depositary for such Global Security or a nominee thereof.

 

(f)                          Subject to the provisions of clause (h) below, the registered Holder may grant proxies and otherwise authorize any Person, including Agent Members (as defined below in clause (h)) and Persons that may hold interests through Agent Members, to take any action which a Holder is entitled to take under the Indenture or the Notes.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall prevent the Company or the Trustee or any agent of the Company or the Trustee from giving effect to any written certification, proxy or other authorization furnished by the Depositary or such nominee, as the case may be, or impair, as between the Depositary, its Agent Members and any other Person on whose behalf an Agent Member may act, the operation of customary practices of such Persons governing the exercise of the rights of a Holder of any Note.

 

Section 3.04.                          Additional Notes.  The Company may, from time to time, subject to compliance with any other applicable provisions of the Indenture, without notice to or the consent of the Holders of the Notes, create and issue pursuant to the Indenture additional Notes (“Additional Notes”) having terms and conditions set forth in Exhibit A-1, Exhibit A-2 or Exhibit A-3, as applicable, identical to those of the other Notes of such series, except that Additional Notes of a series:

provided that if such Additional Notes are not fungible with the applicable series of Initial Notes for U.S. federal income tax purposes, such Additional Notes will have one or more separate CUSIP numbers.  Such Additional Notes may be consolidated and form a single series with, and will have the same terms as to ranking, redemption, waivers, amendments or otherwise, as the applicable series of Notes, and will vote together as one class on all matters with respect to such series of Notes.

 

ARTICLE 4
REDEMPTION OF SECURITIES

 

Section 4.01.                          Optional Redemption.  (a) Subject to Section 1.02 hereof, the provisions of Article 11 of the Base Indenture, as supplemented by the provisions of this Supplemental Indenture, shall apply to the Notes.

 

(b)                        At any time and from time to time, the Notes of any series shall be redeemable, as a whole or in part, at the Company’s option. The Redemption Price for any Notes redeemed prior to the Applicable Par Call Date will equal the greater of (i) 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed or (ii) the sum, as determined by the Independent Investment Banker based on the Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, of the present values of the Remaining Scheduled Payments, discounted to the Redemption Date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) using a discount rate equal to the Treasury Rate plus 10 basis points, in the case of the 2021 Notes, 15 basis points, in the case of the 2026 Notes, and 25 basis points, in the case of the 2046 Notes, plus, in the case of each of clause (i) or (ii), accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but not including, the Redemption Date for such Notes. On or after the Applicable Par Call Date for the 2021 Notes, the 2026 Notes and the 2046 Notes, as the case may be, the Redemption Price will equal 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the 2021 Notes, the 2026 Notes or the 2046 Notes, as the case may be, to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but not including, the Redemption Date for such Notes.

 

(c)                         On and after the Redemption Date for a series of Notes, interest will cease to accrue on such Notes or any portion thereof called for redemption, unless the Company defaults in the payment of the Redemption Price and accrued interest, if any. On or before the Redemption Date for the Notes, the Company shall deposit with the Trustee or a Paying Agent, funds sufficient to pay the Redemption Price of the Notes to be redeemed on the Redemption Date. If less than all of the Notes of a series are to be redeemed, the Notes to be redeemed shall be selected by the Trustee by lot, on a pro-rata basis or by such method as the Trustee deems fair and appropriate and subject, in the case of Notes represented by Global Securities, to the applicable procedures of the Depositary; provided, however that in no event, shall Notes of a principal amount of $2,000 or less be redeemed in part.  The Company need not issue, authenticate, register the transfer of or exchange any Notes or portions thereof for a period of fifteen (15) days before the

 

8



 

electronic delivery or mailing of a notice of redemption, nor need the Company register the transfer or exchange of any Note selected for redemption in whole or in part.

 

(d)                        Notice of any redemption pursuant to this Section 4.01 shall be electronically delivered or mailed at least 30 days (in the case of any redemption of Notes prior to the Applicable Par Call Date) or 15 days (in the case of any redemption of Notes with a Redemption Date on or after the Applicable Par Call Dates for such Notes) but in each case not more than 60 days before the Redemption Date to each Holder of the Notes to be redeemed. Such notice shall state the Redemption Price (if known) or the formula pursuant to which the Redemption Price is to be determined if the Redemption Price cannot be determined at the time the notice is given. If the Redemption Price cannot be determined at the time such notice is to be given, the actual Redemption Price, calculated as described above in clause (b), shall be set forth in an Officer’s Certificate delivered to the Trustee no later than two Business Days prior to the Redemption Date. Notice of redemption having been given as provided in the Indenture, the Notes called for redemption shall become due and payable on the Redemption Date and at the applicable Redemption Price.

If an Event of Default occurs and is continuing with respect to a series of Notes, then and in every such case except as provided below, the Trustee or the Holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the Outstanding Notes of such series may declare the principal amount of all such Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to be due and payable immediately, by a notice in writing to the Company (and to the Trustee if given by Holders), and upon any such declaration such principal amount shall become immediately due and payable.

At any time after such a declaration of acceleration with respect to Notes of a series has been made, but before a judgment or decree for payment of the money due has been obtained by the Trustee as hereinafter in the Indenture provided, the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Outstanding Notes of such series, by written notice to the Company and the Trustee, may rescind and annul such declaration and its consequences as provided in Section 502 of the Base Indenture. No such rescission shall affect any subsequent default or impair any right consequent thereon.

(REVERSE OF NOTE)

 

INTEL CORPORATION
1.700% Senior Notes due 2021

 

1.             Interest.

 

Intel Corporation (the “Issuer”) promises to pay interest on the principal amount of this Note at the rate per annum described above.  Cash interest on the Notes will accrue from the most recent date to which interest has been paid; or, if no interest has been paid, from May 19, 2016.  Interest on this Note will be paid to but excluding the relevant Interest Payment Date or on such earlier date as the principal amount shall become due in accordance with the provisions hereof.  The Issuer will pay interest semi-annually in arrears on each Interest Payment Date, beginning on November 19, 2016.  If any Interest Payment Date, Stated Maturity or other payment date with respect to the Notes is not a Business Day, the required payment of principal, premium, if any, or interest will be due on the next succeeding Business Day as if made on the date that such payment was due, and no interest will accrue on that payment for the period from and after that Interest Payment Date, Stated Maturity or other payment date, as the case may be, to the date of that payment on the next succeeding Business Day.  Interest will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months.

 

The Issuer shall pay interest on overdue principal from time to time on demand at the rate borne by the Notes and at the same rate on overdue installments of interest (without regard to any applicable grace periods) to the extent lawful from the dates such amounts are due until such amounts are paid or made available for payment.

 

2.             Paying Agent.

 

Initially, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (the “Trustee”) will act as Paying Agent.  The Issuer may change any Paying Agent without notice to the Holders.

 

3.             Indenture; Defined Terms.

 

This Note is one of the  1.700% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Notes”) issued under the Indenture dated as of March 29, 2006, as amended by the First Supplemental Indenture dated as of December 3, 2007 (together, the “Base Indenture”) and, as amended, modified and supplemented by the Eighth Supplemental Indenture dated as of May 19, 2016 (the “Eighth Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), by and between the Issuer and the Trustee, as trustee.  This Note is a “Security” and the Notes are “Securities” under the Indenture.  Each series of Securities issued under the Eighth Supplemental Indenture (together with any other Securities thereafter issued and included in any such series) is referred to herein as an “Other Series of 2016 Notes” and, together with the Notes, as the “2016 Notes.”

 

For purposes of this Note, unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms herein are used as defined in the Indenture.  The terms of the Notes include those stated in the Indenture and those made part of the Indenture by reference to the Trust Indenture

 

20



 

Act of 1939 (15 U.S.C. Sections 77aaa-77bbbb) (the “TIA”) as in effect on the date on which the Indenture was qualified under the TIA.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Notes are subject to all such terms, and Holders of Notes are referred to the Indenture and the TIA for a statement of them.  To the extent the terms of the Indenture and this Note are inconsistent, the terms of the Indenture shall govern.

 

4.             Denominations; Transfer; Exchange.

 

The Notes are in registered form, without coupons, in denominations of $2,000 and multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof.  A Holder shall register the transfer or exchange of Notes in accordance with the Indenture.  The Issuer may require a Holder, among other things, to furnish appropriate endorsements and transfer documents and to pay certain transfer taxes or similar governmental charges payable in connection therewith as permitted by the Indenture.  The Issuer need not issue, authenticate, register the transfer of or exchange any Notes or portions thereof for a period of fifteen (15) days before the electronic delivery or mailing of a notice of redemption, nor need the Issuer register the transfer or exchange of any Note selected for redemption in whole or in part.

 

5.             Amendment; Modification; Waiver.

 

The Indenture permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Issuer and the rights of the Holders of each series of 2016 Notes affected under the Indenture at any time by the Issuer and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the 2016 Notes at the time Outstanding of all series of 2016 Notes affected thereby. The Indenture contains provisions permitting the Holders of not less than a majority in principal amount of the Securities of a series at the time Outstanding with respect to which a default under the Indenture shall have occurred and be continuing, on behalf of the Holders of all Securities of such series, to waive, with certain exceptions, such past default with respect to such series and its consequences. The Indenture also permits the Holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the 2016 Notes at the time Outstanding of all series of 2016 Notes (voting together as a single class), on behalf of the Holders of all Securities of such series, to waive future compliance by the Issuer with certain provisions of the Indenture. Any such consent or waiver by the Holder of this Note shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Note and of any Security issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange therefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Note.  Without notice to or consent of any Holder, the Indenture also permits the amendment or supplement thereof to, among other things, cure any ambiguity, defect or inconsistency or comply with any requirements of the Commission in connection with qualifications of the Indenture under the TIA, or make any other change that does not adversely affect the rights of Holders in any material respect.

 

21



 

6.             Optional Redemption.

 

The Issuer may redeem the Notes in whole or in part, at its option, at any time or from time to time prior to Maturity (the date of such redemption, the “Redemption Date”).  The Redemption Price prior to April 19, 2021 (the “Applicable Par Call Date”) will be equal to the greater of:

 

(i)            100% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed; or

 

(ii)           the sum, as determined by the Independent Investment Banker based on the Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, of the present values of the Remaining Scheduled Payments, discounted to the Redemption Date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months), using a rate equal to the Treasury Rate plus 10 basis points (such sum to be calculated as set forth in the Indenture),

 

plus, in the case of (i) or (ii), accrued interest thereon to, but not including, the Redemption Date.

 

In the case of any redemption with a Redemption Date on or after the Applicable Par Call Date, the Redemption Price will equal 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued interest thereon to, but not including, the Redemption Date.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, installments of interest on Notes that are due and payable on Interest Payment Dates falling on or prior to a Redemption Date will be payable on the Interest Payment Date to the registered Holders as of the close of business on the relevant Regular Record Date according to the Notes and the Indenture, subject to the applicable procedures of the Depositary.

 

On and after the Redemption Date for the Notes, interest will cease to accrue on the Notes or any portion thereof called for redemption, unless the Issuer defaults in the payment of the Redemption Price and accrued interest, if any. On or before the Redemption Date for the Notes, the Issuer shall deposit with the Trustee or a Paying Agent, funds sufficient to pay the Redemption Price of the Notes to be redeemed on the Redemption Date. If less than all of the Notes are to be redeemed, the Notes to be redeemed shall be selected by the Trustee by lot, on a pro-rata basis or by such method as the Trustee deems fair and appropriate and subject, in the case of Notes represented by Global Securities, to the applicable procedures of the Depositary; provided, however that in no event, shall Notes of a principal amount of $2,000 or less be redeemed in part.

 

Notice of any redemption shall be electronically delivered or mailed at least 30 days (in the case of any Redemption Date prior to the Applicable Par Call Date) or 15 days (in the case of any Redemption Date on or after the applicable Par Call Date) but, in each case, not more than 60 days before the Redemption Date to each Holder of the Notes to be redeemed.  Such notice shall state the Redemption Price (if known) or the formula pursuant to which the Redemption Price is to be determined if the Redemption

 

22



 

Price cannot be determined at the time the notice is given. If the Redemption Price cannot be determined at the time such notice is to be given, the actual Redemption Price, calculated as set forth in the Indenture, shall be set forth in an Officer’s Certificate of the Issuer delivered to the Trustee no later than two Business Days prior to the Redemption Date. Notice of redemption having been given as provided in the Indenture, the Notes called for redemption shall become due and payable on the Redemption Date and at the applicable Redemption Price.

 

7.             Defaults and Remedies.

 

If an Event of Default with respect to the Notes occurs and is continuing, then in every such case the Trustee or the Holders of not less than 25% in principal amount of the Outstanding Notes may declare the principal amount of all the Notes to be due and payable immediately, by a notice in writing to the Issuer (and to the Trustee if given by Holders), and upon any such declaration such principal amount (or specified amount) shall become immediately due and payable.

 

The Indenture permits, subject to certain limitations therein provided, Holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Outstanding Notes to direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the Trustee or exercising any trust or power conferred on the Trustee, with respect to the Notes.

 

8.             Authentication.

 

This Note shall not be valid until the Trustee manually signs the certificate of authentication on this Note.

 

9.             Abbreviations and Defined Terms.

 

Customary abbreviations may be used in the name of a Holder of a Note or an assignee, such as: TEN COM (= tenants in common), TEN ENT (= tenants by the entireties), JT TEN (= joint tenants with right of survivorship and not as tenants in common), CUST (= Custodian), and U/G/M/A (= Uniform Gifts to Minors Act).

 

10.          CUSIP Numbers.

 

Pursuant to a recommendation promulgated by the Committee on Uniform Security Identification Procedures, the Issuer has caused CUSIP numbers to be printed on the Notes as a convenience to the Holders of the Notes.  No representation is made as to the accuracy of such numbers as printed on the Notes and reliance may be placed only on the other identification numbers printed hereon.

 

11.          Governing Law.

 

The laws of the State of New York shall govern the Indenture and this Note without regard to conflicts of laws principles thereof.

Any such consent or waiver by the Holder of this Note shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Note and of any Security issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange therefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Note.  Without notice to or consent of any Holder, the Indenture also permits the amendment or supplement thereof to, among other things, cure any ambiguity, defect or inconsistency or comply with any requirements of the Commission in connection with qualifications of the Indenture under the TIA, or make any other change that does not adversely affect the rights of Holders in any material respect.

6.             Optional Redemption.

 

The Issuer may redeem the Notes in whole or in part, at its option, at any time or from time to time prior to Maturity (the date of such redemption, the “Redemption Date”).  The Redemption Price prior to February 19, 2026 (the “Applicable Par Call Date”) will be equal to the greater of:

 

(i)            100% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed; or

 

(ii)           the sum, as determined by the Independent Investment Banker based on the Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, of the present values of the Remaining Scheduled Payments, discounted to the Redemption Date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months), using a rate equal to the Treasury Rate plus 15 basis points (such sum to be calculated as set forth in the Indenture),

 

plus, in the case of (i) or (ii), accrued interest thereon to, but not including, the Redemption Date.

 

In the case of any redemption with a Redemption Date on or after the Applicable Par Call Date, the Redemption Price will equal 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued interest thereon to, but not including, the Redemption Date.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, installments of interest on Notes that are due and payable on Interest Payment Dates falling on or prior to a Redemption Date will be payable on the Interest Payment Date to the registered Holders as of the close of business on the relevant Regular Record Date according to the Notes and the Indenture, subject to the applicable procedures of the Depositary.

 

On and after the Redemption Date for the Notes, interest will cease to accrue on the Notes or any portion thereof called for redemption, unless the Issuer defaults in the payment of the Redemption Price and accrued interest, if any. On or before the Redemption Date for the Notes, the Issuer shall deposit with the Trustee or a Paying Agent, funds sufficient to pay the Redemption Price of the Notes to be redeemed on the Redemption Date. If less than all of the Notes are to be redeemed, the Notes to be redeemed shall be selected by the Trustee by lot, on a pro-rata basis or by such method as the Trustee deems fair and appropriate and subject, in the case of Notes represented by Global Securities, to the applicable procedures of the Depositary; provided, however that in no event, shall Notes of a principal amount of $2,000 or less be redeemed in part.

 

Notice of any redemption shall be electronically delivered or mailed at least 30 days (in the case of any Redemption Date prior to the Applicable Par Call Date) or 15 days (in the case of any Redemption Date on or after the applicable Par Call Date) but, in each case, not more than 60 days before the Redemption Date to each Holder of the Notes to be redeemed.  Such notice shall state the Redemption Price (if known) or the formula pursuant to which the Redemption Price is to be determined if the Redemption

 

32



 

Price cannot be determined at the time the notice is given. If the Redemption Price cannot be determined at the time such notice is to be given, the actual Redemption Price, calculated as set forth in the Indenture, shall be set forth in an Officer’s Certificate of the Issuer delivered to the Trustee no later than two Business Days prior to the Redemption Date. Notice of redemption having been given as provided in the Indenture, the Notes called for redemption shall become due and payable on the Redemption Date and at the applicable Redemption Price.

 

7.             Defaults and Remedies.

 

If an Event of Default with respect to the Notes occurs and is continuing, then in every such case the Trustee or the Holders of not less than 25% in principal amount of the Outstanding Notes may declare the principal amount of all the Notes to be due and payable immediately, by a notice in writing to the Issuer (and to the Trustee if given by Holders), and upon any such declaration such principal amount (or specified amount) shall become immediately due and payable.

 

The Indenture permits, subject to certain limitations therein provided, Holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Outstanding Notes to direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the Trustee or exercising any trust or power conferred on the Trustee, with respect to the Notes.

 

8.             Authentication.

 

This Note shall not be valid until the Trustee manually signs the certificate of authentication on this Note.

 

9.             Abbreviations and Defined Terms.

 

Customary abbreviations may be used in the name of a Holder of a Note or an assignee, such as: TEN COM (= tenants in common), TEN ENT (= tenants by the entireties), JT TEN (= joint tenants with right of survivorship and not as tenants in common), CUST (= Custodian), and U/G/M/A (= Uniform Gifts to Minors Act).

 

10.          CUSIP Numbers.

 

Pursuant to a recommendation promulgated by the Committee on Uniform Security Identification Procedures, the Issuer has caused CUSIP numbers to be printed on the Notes as a convenience to the Holders of the Notes.  No representation is made as to the accuracy of such numbers as printed on the Notes and reliance may be placed only on the other identification numbers printed hereon.

 

11.          Governing Law.

 

The laws of the State of New York shall govern the Indenture and this Note without regard to conflicts of laws principles thereof.

INTEL CORPORATION
4.100% Senior Notes due 2046

 

1.             Interest.

 

Intel Corporation (the “Issuer”) promises to pay interest on the principal amount of this Note at the rate per annum described above.  Cash interest on the Notes will accrue from the most recent date to which interest has been paid; or, if no interest has been paid, from May 19, 2016.  Interest on this Note will be paid to but excluding the relevant Interest Payment Date or on such earlier date as the principal amount shall become due in accordance with the provisions hereof.  The Issuer will pay interest semi-annually in arrears on each Interest Payment Date, beginning on November 19, 2016.  If any Interest Payment Date, Stated Maturity or other payment date with respect to the Notes is not a Business Day, the required payment of principal, premium, if any, or interest will be due on the next succeeding Business Day as if made on the date that such payment was due, and no interest will accrue on that payment for the period from and after that Interest Payment Date, Stated Maturity or other payment date, as the case may be, to the date of that payment on the next succeeding Business Day.  Interest will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months.

 

The Issuer shall pay interest on overdue principal from time to time on demand at the rate borne by the Notes and at the same rate on overdue installments of interest (without regard to any applicable grace periods) to the extent lawful from the dates such amounts are due until such amounts are paid or made available for payment.

 

2.             Paying Agent.

 

Initially, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (the “Trustee”) will act as Paying Agent.  The Issuer may change any Paying Agent without notice to the Holders.

 

3.             Indenture; Defined Terms.

 

This Note is one of the  4.100% Senior Notes due 2046 (the “Notes”) issued under the Indenture dated as of March 29, 2006, as amended by the First Supplemental Indenture dated as of December 3, 2007 (together, the “Base Indenture”) and, as amended, modified and supplemented by the Eighth Supplemental Indenture dated as of May 19, 2016 (the “Eighth Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), by and between the Issuer and the Trustee, as trustee.  This Note is a “Security” and the Notes are “Securities” under the Indenture.  Each series of Securities issued under the Eighth Supplemental Indenture (together with any other Securities thereafter issued and included in any such series) is referred to herein as an “Other Series of 2016 Notes” and, together with the Notes, as the “2016 Notes.”

 

For purposes of this Note, unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms herein are used as defined in the Indenture.  The terms of the Notes include those stated in the Indenture and those made part of the Indenture by reference to the Trust Indenture

 

40



 

Act of 1939 (15 U.S.C. Sections 77aaa-77bbbb) (the “TIA”) as in effect on the date on which the Indenture was qualified under the TIA.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Notes are subject to all such terms, and Holders of Notes are referred to the Indenture and the TIA for a statement of them.  To the extent the terms of the Indenture and this Note are inconsistent, the terms of the Indenture shall govern.

The Notes are in registered form, without coupons, in denominations of $2,000 and multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof.  A Holder shall register the transfer or exchange of Notes in accordance with the Indenture.  The Issuer may require a Holder, among other things, to furnish appropriate endorsements and transfer documents and to pay certain transfer taxes or similar governmental charges payable in connection therewith as permitted by the Indenture.  The Issuer need not issue, authenticate, register the transfer of or exchange any Notes or portions thereof for a period of fifteen (15) days before the electronic delivery or mailing of a notice of redemption, nor need the Issuer register the transfer or exchange of any Note selected for redemption in whole or in part.

 

5.             Amendment; Modification; Waiver.

 

The Indenture permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Issuer and the rights of the Holders of each series of 2016 Notes affected under the Indenture at any time by the Issuer and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the 2016 Notes at the time Outstanding of all series of 2016 Notes affected thereby. The Indenture contains provisions permitting the Holders of not less than a majority in principal amount of the Securities of a series at the time Outstanding with respect to which a default under the Indenture shall have occurred and be continuing, on behalf of the Holders of all Securities of such series, to waive, with certain exceptions, such past default with respect to such series and its consequences. The Indenture also permits the Holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the 2016 Notes at the time Outstanding of all series of 2016 Notes (voting together as a single class), on behalf of the Holders of all Securities of such series, to waive future compliance by the Issuer with certain provisions of the Indenture. Any such consent or waiver by the Holder of this Note shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Note and of any Security issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange therefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Note.  Without notice to or consent of any Holder, the Indenture also permits the amendment or supplement thereof to, among other things, cure any ambiguity, defect or inconsistency or comply with any requirements of the Commission in connection with qualifications of the Indenture under the TIA, or make any other change that does not adversely affect the rights of Holders in any material respect.
