Any such interest not so punctually paid or duly provided for will 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 Security (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 Securities of this series not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date, or be paid at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which the Securities of this series may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, all as more fully provided in the Indenture.

Reference is hereby made to the further provisions of this Security set forth following the Company’s signature hereto, which further provisions shall for all purposes have the same effect as if set forth at this place.

 

Unless the certificate of authentication hereon has been executed by the Trustee referred to following the Company’s signature hereto by manual signature, this Security shall not be entitled to any benefit under the Indenture or be valid or obligatory for any purpose.

 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company has caused this instrument to be duly executed under its corporate seal.

This Security is one of a duly authorized issue of securities of the Company (herein called the “Securities”), issued and to be issued in one or more series under an Indenture, dated as of January 15, 1998 (such instrument as originally executed and delivered and as supplemented or amended from time to time, the “Indenture”), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., successor to JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (formerly known as The Chase Manhattan Bank), as Trustee (the “Trustee,” which term includes any successor trustee under the Indenture), and reference is hereby made to the Indenture for a description of

 



 

the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Company, the Trustee and the Holders of the Securities and of the terms upon which the Securities are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered. This Security is one of the series designated on the face hereof.

 

The Company may redeem all or any portion of the Securities of this series, at its option, at any time or from time to time, (A) prior to October 1, 2041, at a Redemption Price equal to the greater of (a) 100% of the principal amount of the Securities of this series being redeemed on the Redemption Date or (b) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Securities of this series being redeemed on that Redemption Date (not including the portion of any payments of interest accrued to the Redemption Date) discounted to the Redemption Date on a semiannual basis at the Adjusted Treasury Rate plus 25 basis points, as determined by a Reference Treasury Dealer appointed by the Company for such purpose; and (B) on or after October 1, 2041, at a Redemption Price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Securities of this series being redeemed on the Redemption Date; plus, in each case, accrued and unpaid interest thereon to the Redemption Date.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, installments of interest on Securities of this series 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 Holders as of the close of business on the relevant record date in accordance with the terms of the Securities of this series and the Indenture.  The Redemption Price will be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months.

 

If notice has been given as provided in the Indenture and funds for the redemption of any Securities of this series (or any portion thereof) called for redemption shall have been made available on the Redemption Date referred to in such notice, such Securities (or any portion thereof) will cease to bear interest on the date fixed for such redemption specified in such notice and the only right of the Holders of such Securities will be to receive payment of the Redemption Price.

 

Notice of any optional redemption of Securities of this series (or any portion thereof) will be given to Holders at their addresses, as shown in the Security Register for such Securities, not more than 60 nor less than 30 days prior to the date fixed for redemption. The notice of redemption will specify, among other items, (i) the Redemption Price or the manner of calculation of the Redemption Price and (ii) the principal amount of the Securities of this series held by such Holder to be redeemed if less than all of such Securities.  If less than all of the Securities of this series are to be redeemed at the option of the Company, the Trustee shall select, in such manner as it shall deem appropriate, the portion of such Securities to be redeemed.

 

As used herein:

 

Adjusted Treasury Rate” means, with respect to any applicable Redemption Date, the rate per annum equal to the semiannual equivalent yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue, assuming 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.

 

Comparable Treasury Issue” means the U.S. Treasury security selected by a Reference Treasury Dealer appointed by the Company for such purpose as having a maturity comparable to

 



 

the remaining term of this Security to be redeemed 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 such Security.

 

Comparable Treasury Price” means, with respect to any applicable Redemption Date, (A) if the Company obtains three or more Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, the average of such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations for such Redemption Date, after excluding the highest and lowest of such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, (B) if the Company obtains two such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, the average of such quotations, or (C) if only one Reference Treasury Dealer Quotation is received, such quotation.

 

“Primary Treasury Dealer” means a primary U.S. government securities dealer in the United States.

 

Reference Treasury Dealer” means (A) Barclays Capital Inc., BNP Paribas Securities Corp., BNY Mellon Capital Markets, LLC, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, and their respective successors; provided, however, that if any of the foregoing shall cease to be a Primary Treasury Dealer, the Company will substitute therefor another Primary Treasury Dealer; and (B) any other Primary Treasury Dealer(s) selected by the Company.

 

Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations” means, with respect to each Reference Treasury Dealer and any applicable Redemption Date, the average 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 Trustee by such Reference Treasury Dealer at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the third Business Day preceding such Redemption Date.

 

The Securities of this series will not be subject to any sinking fund.

Holders of the Securities of each series to be affected under the Indenture at any time by the Company and the Trustee without the consent of such Holders in certain circumstances, or with the consent of the Holders of 66-2/3% in principal amount of the affected Securities at the time Outstanding. The Indenture also contains provisions permitting the Holders of specified percentages in principal amount of the affected Securities at the time Outstanding, on behalf of the Holders of all such Securities, to waive compliance by the Company with certain provisions of the Indenture and certain past defaults under the Indenture and their consequences.  Any such consent or waiver by the Holder of this Security shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Security and of any Security issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Security.

The foregoing shall not apply to any suit instituted by the Holder of this Security for the enforcement of any payment of principal hereof or any premium or interest hereon on or after the respective due dates expressed herein.
