Hewlett-Packard Company, a corporation duly organized and existing under the laws of Delaware (herein called the “Company,” which term includes any successor Person under the Indenture hereinafter referred to), for value received, hereby promises to pay to Cede & Co., or registered assigns, the principal sum of                          Dollars ($                        ) or such other amount indicated on the Schedule of Exchange of Global Notes attached hereto on May 30, 2014 (if such date is not a Business Day, payment of principal, premium, if any, and interest for the Securities will be paid on the next Business Day); provided, however, that no interest on that payment will accrue from and after May 30, 2014, and to pay interest thereon from May 31, 2011, or from the most recent Interest Payment Date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, semi-annually on May 30 and November 30 in each year, commencing November 30, 2011, at the rate of 1.550% per annum, until the principal hereof is paid or made available for payment.  The interest so payable, and punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date will, as provided in such Indenture, be paid to the Person in whose name this Security (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on the Regular Record Date for such interest, which shall be the fifteenth day (whether or not a Business Day), next preceding such Interest Payment Date.  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 said Indenture.  Interest on the Security shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months, and for any period shorter than a full six-month interest period, on the basis of the actual days elapsed in such period.

 

So long as all of the Securities of this series are represented by Global Securities, the principal of, premium, if any, and interest, if any, on this Global Security shall be paid in same day funds to the Depositary, or to such name or entity as is requested by an authorized representative of the Depositary.  If at any time the Securities of this series are no longer represented by the Global Securities and are issued in definitive form (“Certificated Securities”), then the principal of, premium, if any, and interest, if any, on each Certificated Security at Maturity shall be paid to the Holder upon surrender of such Certificated Security at the office or agency maintained by the Company in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York (which shall initially be the principal corporate trust office of The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as Trustee) or at such other place or places as may be designated in or pursuant to the Indenture, provided that such

 



 

Certificated Security is surrendered to the Trustee, acting as Paying Agent, in time for the Paying Agent to make such payments in such funds in accordance with its normal procedures.  Payments of interest with respect to Certificated Securities other than at Maturity may, at the option of the Company, be made by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto as it appears on the Security Register on the relevant Regular or Special Record Date or by wire transfer in same day funds to such account as may have been appropriately designated to the Paying Agent by such Person in writing not later than such relevant Regular or Special Record Date.

 

Reference is hereby made to the further provisions of this Security set forth on the reverse hereof, 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 on the reverse hereof by manual signature, this Security shall not be entitled to any benefit under the Indenture or be valid or obligatory for any purpose.

Reverse of Security

 

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 June 1, 2000 (herein called the “Indenture,” which term shall have the meaning assigned to it in such instrument), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. (as successor to The Bank of New York Trust Company, N.A., as successor to J.P. Morgan Trust Company, National Association, as successor to Chase Manhattan Bank and Trust Company, National Association), as trustee (herein called the “Trustee,” which term includes any successor Trustee under the Indenture), and reference is hereby made to the Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto for a statement 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 initially limited in aggregate principal amount to $500,000,000.

 

The Company will have the right to redeem the Securities, in whole or in part on at least 30 days’ but no more than 60 days’ prior written notice mailed to the registered Holders of the Securities to be redeemed.  The Redemption Price will be equal to the greater of (1) 100% of the principal amount of the Securities to be redeemed and (2) the sum, as determined by the Company based on the Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, of the present value of the principal amount of the Securities to be redeemed and the remaining scheduled payments of interest thereon from the Redemption Date to the Maturity Date (the “Remaining Life”) (not including any portion of such payments of interest accrued as of the Redemption Date) discounted from the scheduled payment dates to the Redemption Date on a semi-annual basis at the treasury rate plus 10 basis points, plus accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount being redeemed to, but excluding, the Redemption Date.

 

If money sufficient to pay the Redemption Price of and accrued interest on the Securities (or portions thereof) to be redeemed on the Redemption Date is deposited with the Trustee or Paying Agent on or before the Redemption Date and the conditions set forth in Article 11 of the Indenture are satisfied, then on and after the Redemption Date, interest will cease to accrue on such Securities (or such portion thereof) called for redemption and such Securities will cease to be outstanding.  If any Redemption Date is not a Business Day, the Company will pay the Redemption Price on the next Business Day without any interest or other payment due to the delay.

 

If fewer than all of the Securities of a series are to be redeemed, the Trustee will select the Securities of such series for redemption on a pro rata basis, by lot or by such other method as the Trustee deems appropriate and fair.  No Securities of $1,000 or less will be redeemed in part.

 

Unless the Company defaults in the payment of the Redemption Price, no interest will accrue on the Securities called for redemption for the period from and after the Redemption Date.

 



 

In the event of redemption of this Security in part only, a new Security or Securities of this series and of like tenor for the unredeemed portion hereof will be issued in the name of the Holder hereof upon the cancellation hereof.

 

“Comparable Treasury Issue” means the United States Treasury security selected by a Reference Treasury Dealer appointed by the Company as having a maturity comparable to the Remaining Life 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 with the Remaining Life.

 

“Comparable Treasury Price” means, with respect to any redemption date, the average of three Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations for such redemption date.

 

“Reference Treasury Dealer” means each of Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and RBS Securities Inc. and their respective successors; provided, however, that if any of the foregoing shall cease to be a primary U.S. Government securities dealer in the United States (a Primary Treasury Dealer), the Company shall substitute therefor another Primary Treasury Dealer.

 

“Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations” means, with respect to each Reference Treasury Dealer and any redemption date, the average, as determined by the Company, 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 Company by each Reference Treasury Dealer at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the third business day preceding the redemption date; provided that if three such quotations cannot reasonably be obtained by the Company, but if two such quotations are obtained, then the average of the two quotations shall be used, and if only one such quotation can reasonably be obtained by the Company, then one quotation shall be used.

 

“Treasury Rate” means, with respect to any redemption date, the rate per annum equal to the semiannual equivalent yield to maturity of the applicable Comparable Treasury Issue, assuming a price for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the applicable Comparable Treasury Price for the redemption date.

 

The Indenture contains provisions, which will apply to the Securities, for defeasance and covenant defeasance and Events of Default with respect to this Security, in each case upon compliance with certain conditions set forth in the Indenture.

 

If an Event of Default with respect to Securities of this series shall occur and be continuing, the principal of the Securities of this series may be declared due and payable in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture.

 

The Indenture permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Company and the rights of the Holders of the Securities of each series to be affected under the Indenture at any time by the Company and the

 



 

Trustee with the consent of the Holders of more than 50% in aggregate principal amount of the Securities at the time Outstanding of each series to be affected.  The Indenture also contains provisions permitting the Holders of specified percentages in principal amount of the Securities of each series at the time Outstanding, on behalf of the Holders of all Securities of such series, 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 or transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Security.

 

As provided in and subject to the provisions of the Indenture, the Holder of this Security shall not have the right to institute any proceeding with respect to the Indenture or for the appointment of a receiver or Trustee or for any other remedy thereunder, unless such Holder shall have previously given the Trustee written notice of a continuing Event of Default with respect to the Securities of this series, the Holders of not less than 25% in principal amount of the Securities of this series at the time Outstanding shall have made written request to the Trustee to institute proceedings in respect of such Event of Default as Trustee and offered the Trustee reasonable indemnity, and the Trustee shall not have received from the Holders of a majority in principal amount of Securities of this series at the time Outstanding a direction inconsistent with such request, and shall have failed to institute any such proceeding, for 60 days after receipt of such notice, request and offer of indemnity.  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.

 

No reference herein to the Indenture and no provision of this Security or of the Indenture shall alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of and any premium and interest on this Security at the times, place and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed.

 

The Securities of this series are issuable only in registered form without coupons in denominations of $2,000 and any integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof.

 

This Security shall be deemed to be a contract made under the laws of the State of New York, and for all purposes shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of said State, without regard to conflict of laws principles thereof.

 

All terms used in this Security that are defined in the Indenture shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Indenture.
