With respect to any record date set pursuant to this Section 1.4, the Company may designate any date as the “Expiration Date” and from time to time may change the Expiration Date to any earlier or later day; provided that no such change shall be effective unless notice of the proposed new Expiration Date is given to the Purchase Contract Agent in writing, and to each Holder of Units in the manner set forth in Section 1.6, on or prior to the existing Expiration Date.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company will not be obligated to execute and deliver to the Purchase Contract Agent, and the Purchase Contract Agent will not be obligated to authenticate, execute on behalf of the Holder and deliver any Certificate in exchange for any other Certificate presented or surrendered for registration of transfer or for exchange on or after the Business Day immediately preceding the earliest to occur of any Early Settlement Date with respect to such Certificate, any Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date with respect to such Certificate, the Purchase Contract Settlement Date or the Termination Date. In lieu of delivery of a new Certificate, upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions specified above in this Section 3.5 and receipt of appropriate registration or transfer instructions from such Holder, the Purchase Contract Agent shall
(i) if the Purchase Contract Settlement Date or any Early Settlement Date or Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date with respect to such other Certificate (or portion thereof) has occurred, deliver the shares of Common Stock issuable in respect of the Purchase Contracts forming a part of the Units evidenced by such other Certificate (or portion thereof), or
(ii) if a Termination Event, Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement shall have occurred prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, or a Cash Settlement shall have occurred, transfer the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures, the Treasury Securities, or the Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, underlying such other Certificate,
in each case subject to the applicable conditions and in accordance with the applicable provisions of Section 3.15 (with respect to a Termination Event) and Article V hereof.
SECTION 3.6.    Book‑Entry Interests
.
The Certificates, on original issuance, will be issued in the form of one or more fully registered Global Certificates, to be delivered to the Depositary or a nominee or custodian thereof by, or on behalf of, the Company. Such Global Certificates shall initially be registered on the Security Register in the name of Cede & Co., the nominee of the Depositary, and no Beneficial Owner will receive a definitive Certificate representing such Beneficial Owner's interest in such Global Certificate, except as provided in Section 3.9. The Purchase Contract Agent shall enter into an agreement with the Depositary if so requested by the Company.

(i)    the provisions of this Section 3.6 shall be in full force and effect;





(ii)    the Company shall be entitled to deal with the Clearing Agency for all purposes of this Agreement (including the payment of Contract Adjustment Payments, if any, and receiving approvals, votes or consents hereunder) as the Holder of the Units and the sole holder of the Global Certificate(s) and shall have no obligation to the Beneficial Owners;
(iii)    to the extent that the provisions of this Section 3.6 conflict with any other provisions of this Agreement, the provisions of this Section 3.6 shall control; and
(iv)    the rights of the Beneficial Owners shall be exercised only through the Clearing Agency and shall be limited to those established by law and agreements between such Beneficial Owners and the Clearing Agency and/or the Clearing Agency Participants. The Clearing Agency will make book‑entry transfers among Clearing Agency Participants and receive and transmit payments of Contract Adjustment Payments to such Clearing Agency Participants.
Transfers of Units evidenced by Global Certificates shall be made through the facilities of the Depositary, and any cancellation of, or increase or decrease in the number of, such Units (including the creation of Treasury Units and the recreation of Corporate Units pursuant to Section 3.13 and Section 3.14 respectively) shall be accomplished by making appropriate annotations on the Schedule of Increases and Decreases set forth in such Global Certificate.
SECTION 3.7.    Notices to Holders
.
Whenever a notice or other communication to the Holders is required to be given under this Agreement, the Company or the Company's agent shall give such notices and communications to the Holders and, with respect to any Certificates registered in the name of a Clearing Agency or the nominee of a Clearing Agency, the Company or the Company's agent shall, except as set forth herein, have no obligations to the Beneficial Owners.
SECTION 3.8.    Appointment of Successor Clearing Agency
.
If any Clearing Agency elects to discontinue its services as securities depositary with respect to the Units, the Company may, in its sole discretion, appoint a successor Clearing Agency with respect to the Units.
SECTION 3.9.    Definitive Certificates
.
If (i) a Clearing Agency notifies the Company that it is unwilling or unable to continue its services as securities depositary with respect to the Units and a successor Clearing Agency is not appointed within 90 days pursuant to Section 3.8 after such notice has been given and is continuing, or (ii) the Company elects to terminate the book‑entry system through the Clearing Agency with respect to the Units, then upon surrender of the Global Certificates representing the Book‑Entry Interests with respect to the Units by the Clearing Agency, accompanied by registration instructions, the Company shall cause definitive Certificates to be delivered to Beneficial Owners in accordance with the instructions of the Clearing Agency. The Company shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of such instructions and may conclusively rely on and shall be protected in relying on, such instructions.
SECTION 3.10.    Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost and Stolen Certificates
.
If any mutilated Certificate is surrendered to the Purchase Contract Agent, the Company shall execute and deliver to the Purchase Contract Agent, and the Purchase Contract Agent shall authenticate, execute on





behalf of the Holder, and deliver in exchange therefor, a new Certificate at the cost of the Holder, evidencing the same number of Corporate Units or Treasury Units, as the case may be, and bearing a Certificate number not contemporaneously outstanding.
If there shall be delivered to the Company and the Purchase Contract Agent (i) evidence to their satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Certificate, and (ii) such security or indemnity at the cost of the Holder as may be required by the Company and the Purchase Contract Agent to hold each of them and any agent of either of them harmless, then, in the absence of notice to the Company or the Purchase Contract Agent that such Certificate has been acquired by a protected purchaser, the Company shall execute and deliver to the Purchase Contract Agent, and the Purchase Contract Agent shall authenticate, execute on behalf of the Holder, and deliver to the Holder, in lieu of any such destroyed, lost or stolen Certificate, a new Certificate, at the cost of the Holder, evidencing the same number of Corporate Units or Treasury Units, as the case may be, and bearing a Certificate number not contemporaneously outstanding.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company will not be obligated to execute and deliver to the Purchase Contract Agent, and the Purchase Contract Agent will not be obligated to authenticate, execute on behalf of the Holder and deliver to the Holder, with respect to such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Certificate a new Certificate on or after the Business Day immediately preceding the earliest of any Early Settlement Date, any Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date, the Purchase Contract Settlement Date or the Termination Date. In addition, in lieu of delivery of a new Certificate, upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions specified above in this Section 3.10 and receipt of appropriate registration or transfer instructions from such Holder, the Purchase Contract Agent shall
(i) if the Purchase Contract Settlement Date or an Early Settlement Date or a Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date with respect to such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Certificate has occurred, deliver the shares of Common Stock issuable in respect of the Purchase Contracts forming a part of the Units evidenced by such Certificate, or
(ii) if a Fundamental Change Early Settlement or an Early Settlement with respect to such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Certificate or a Termination Event shall have occurred prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date or a Cash Settlement shall have occurred, transfer the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio or the Treasury Securities, as the case may be, forming a part of the Units represented by such Certificate to such Holder,
in each case subject to the applicable conditions and in accordance with the applicable provisions of Section 3.15 (with respect to a Termination Event) and Article V hereof.
Upon the issuance of any new Certificate under this Section 3.10, the Company and the Purchase Contract Agent may require the payment by the Holder of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto and any other fees and expenses (including, without limitation, the fees and expenses of the Purchase Contract Agent) connected therewith.
Every new Certificate issued pursuant to this Section 3.10 in lieu of any destroyed, mutilated, lost or stolen Certificate shall constitute an original additional contractual obligation of the Company and of the Holder in respect of the Units evidenced thereby, whether or not the destroyed, mutilated, lost or stolen Certificate (and the Units evidenced thereby) shall be at any time enforceable by anyone, and shall be entitled to all the benefits and be subject to all the obligations of this Agreement equally and proportionately with any and all other Certificates delivered hereunder.





The provisions of this Section 3.10 are exclusive and shall preclude, to the extent lawful, all other rights and remedies with respect to the replacement or payment of mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Certificates.
SECTION 3.11.    Persons Deemed Owners
.
Prior to due presentment of a Certificate for registration of transfer, the Company, NEE Capital and the Purchase Contract Agent, and any agent of the Company, NEE Capital or the Purchase Contract Agent, may treat the Person in whose name such Certificate is registered on the Security Register as the owner of the Units evidenced thereby for purposes of (subject to any applicable record date) any payment or distribution with respect to the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures, or with respect to the Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio (as specified in clause (ii) of the definition thereof), as applicable, payment of Contract Adjustment Payments and performance of the Purchase Contracts and for all other purposes whatsoever, in connection with such Units, whether or not payment, distribution or performance shall be overdue and notwithstanding any notice to the contrary, and neither the Company, NEE Capital nor the Purchase Contract Agent, nor any agent of the Company, NEE Capital or the Purchase Contract Agent, shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to any Global Certificate, nothing herein shall prevent the Company, NEE Capital, the Purchase Contract Agent or any agent of the Company, NEE Capital or the Purchase Contract Agent, from treating the Clearing Agency as the sole Holder of such Global Certificate or from giving effect to any written certification, proxy or other authorization furnished by any Clearing Agency (or its nominee), as a Holder, with respect to such Global Certificate or impair, as between such Clearing Agency and owners of beneficial interests in such Global Certificate, the operation of customary practices governing the exercise of rights of such Clearing Agency (or its nominee) as Holder of such Global Certificate. None of the Company, NEE Capital, the Purchase Contract Agent or any agent of the Company, NEE Capital or the Purchase Contract Agent will have any responsibility or liability for any aspect of the records relating to or payments made on account of beneficial ownership interests of a Global Certificate or maintaining, supervising or reviewing any records relating to such beneficial ownership interests.
SECTION 3.12.    Cancellation
.
All Certificates surrendered for delivery of shares of Common Stock on or after the Purchase Contract Settlement Date or in connection with an Early Settlement or a Fundamental Change Early Settlement or for delivery of the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, or for delivery of the Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio or Treasury Securities, as the case may be, after the occurrence of a Termination Event or pursuant to a Cash Settlement, an Early Settlement or a Fundamental Change Early Settlement, a Collateral Substitution, or upon the registration of a transfer or exchange of a Unit, shall, if surrendered to any Person other than the Purchase Contract Agent, be delivered to the Purchase Contract Agent along with appropriate written instructions regarding the cancellation thereof and, if not already cancelled, shall be promptly cancelled by it. The Company may at any time deliver to the Purchase Contract Agent for cancellation any Certificates previously authenticated, executed and delivered hereunder which the Company may have acquired in any manner whatsoever, and all Certificates so delivered shall, upon an Issuer Order, be promptly cancelled by the Purchase Contract Agent. No Certificates shall be authenticated, executed on behalf of the Holder and delivered in lieu of or in exchange for any Certificates cancelled as provided in this Section 3.12, except as expressly permitted by this Agreement. All cancelled Certificates held by the Purchase Contract Agent shall upon written request be returned to the Company.





If the Company or any Affiliate of the Company shall acquire any Certificate, such acquisition shall not operate as a cancellation of such Certificate unless and until such Certificate is delivered to the Purchase Contract Agent cancelled or for cancellation.
SECTION 3.13.    Creation or Recreation of Treasury Units by Substitution of Treasury Securities
.
A Holder of a Corporate Unit may, at any time on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the seventh Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, create or recreate a Treasury Unit and separate the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as applicable, from the related Purchase Contract in respect of such Corporate Unit by substituting Treasury Securities for the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio that form a part of such Corporate Unit in accordance with this Section 3.13; provided, however, that if the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures as a component of Corporate Units as a result of a Successful Remarketing or a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption, such Collateral Substitutions may be made at any time on or prior to the second Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date. Unless a Successful Remarketing or a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption has previously occurred, Holders shall not be permitted to effect Collateral Substitutions in accordance with the provisions of this Section 3.13 during the period commencing on and including the Business Day prior to the first of the three sequential Remarketing Dates comprising a Three‑Day Remarketing Period and ending on and including the Reset Effective Date relating to a Successful Remarketing during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period or, if none of the Remarketings during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period is successful, the Business Day following the last of the three sequential Remarketing Dates occurring during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period.
Holders of Corporate Units may make Collateral Substitutions and establish Treasury Units (i) only in integral multiples of 20 Corporate Units if Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures are being replaced with Treasury Securities, or (ii) only in integral multiples of 80,000 Corporate Units (or such other number of Corporate Units as may be determined by the Remarketing Agents following a Successful Remarketing if the Reset Effective Date is not a Payment Date) if the Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio are being replaced with Treasury Securities. To create 20 Treasury Units (if a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption has not occurred and the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures remains a component of Corporate Units), or 80,000 Treasury Units (or such other number of Treasury Units as may be determined by the Remarketing Agents following a Successful Remarketing if the Reset Effective Date is not a Payment Date) (if a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption has occurred or the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures as a component of the Corporate Units as a result of a Successful Remarketing), the Corporate Unit Holder shall
(a)    if the Treasury Portfolio has not replaced the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures as a component of Corporate Units as a result of a Successful Remarketing or a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption, deposit with the Collateral Agent a Treasury Security having a principal amount at maturity of $1,000, which Treasury Security must have been purchased in the open market at the Corporate Unit Holder's expense, unless otherwise owned by the Corporate Unit Holder; or
(b)    if the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures as a component of Corporate Units as a result of a Successful Remarketing or a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption, on or prior to the second Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, deposit with the Collateral Agent Treasury Securities having an aggregate principal





amount at maturity of $4,000,000, which Treasury Securities must have been purchased in the open market at the Corporate Unit Holder's expense, unless otherwise owned by the Corporate Unit Holder; and
(c)    in each case, Transfer and surrender the related 20 Corporate Units, or, in the event the Treasury Portfolio is a component of Corporate Units, 80,000 Corporate Units (or such other number of Corporate Units as may be determined by the Remarketing Agents following a Successful Remarketing if the Reset Effective Date is not a Payment Date), to the Purchase Contract Agent accompanied by an instruction to the Purchase Contract Agent, substantially in the form of Exhibit B to the Pledge Agreement, stating that the Holder has Transferred the relevant types and amounts of Treasury Securities to the Collateral Agent and requesting that the Purchase Contract Agent instruct the Collateral Agent to release the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, underlying such Corporate Units, whereupon the Purchase Contract Agent shall promptly give such instruction to the Collateral Agent, substantially in the form of Exhibit A to the Pledge Agreement.
Upon receipt of the Treasury Securities described in clause (a) or (b) above and the instructions described in clause (c) above, in accordance with the terms of the Pledge Agreement, the Collateral Agent will release from the Pledge, to the Purchase Contract Agent, on behalf of the Holder, the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, that had been components of such Corporate Unit, free and clear of the Company's security interest therein, and upon receipt thereof the Purchase Contract Agent shall promptly:
(i)    cancel the related Corporate Units surrendered and Transferred;
(ii)    Transfer the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, that had been components of such Corporate Units to the Holder; and
(iii)    authenticate, execute on behalf of such Holder and deliver a Treasury Unit Certificate executed by the Company in accordance with Section 3.3 evidencing the same number of Purchase Contracts as were evidenced by the cancelled Corporate Units.
Holders who elect to separate the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, from the related Purchase Contracts and to substitute Treasury Securities for such Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, shall be responsible for any fees or expenses payable to the Collateral Agent for its services as Collateral Agent in respect of the substitution, and the Company shall not be responsible for any such fees or expenses.
In the event a Holder making a Collateral Substitution pursuant to this Section 3.13 fails to effect a book‑entry transfer of the Corporate Units or fails to deliver a Corporate Unit Certificate to the Purchase Contract Agent after depositing the Treasury Securities with the Collateral Agent, the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, constituting a part of such Corporate Unit, and any interest on such Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or distributions with respect to the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, shall be held in the name of the Purchase Contract Agent or its nominee in trust for the benefit of such Holder, until such Corporate Unit is so Transferred or the Corporate Unit Certificate is so delivered, as the case may be, or, until such Holder provides evidence satisfactory to the Company and the Purchase Contract Agent that such Corporate Unit Certificate has been destroyed, lost or stolen, together with any indemnity that may be required by the Purchase Contract Agent and the Company.





Except as provided in this Section 3.13, for so long as the Purchase Contract underlying a Corporate Unit remains in effect, such Corporate Unit shall not be separable into its constituent parts, and the rights and obligations of the Holder in respect of the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, and the Purchase Contract comprising such Corporate Unit may be acquired, and may be Transferred and exchanged, only as an entire Corporate Unit.
SECTION 3.14.    Recreation of Corporate Units
.
A Holder of a Treasury Unit may, at any time on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the second Business Day immediately preceding the first day of the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period, recreate Corporate Units by depositing with the Collateral Agent Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as applicable, having an aggregate principal amount equal to the aggregate principal amount at maturity of, and in substitution for all, but not less than all, of the Treasury Securities comprising part of the Treasury Unit in accordance with this Section 3.14; provided, however, that if the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures as a component of Corporate Units as a result of a Successful Remarketing or a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption, such Collateral Substitutions may be made at any time on or prior to the second Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date. Unless a Successful Remarketing or a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption has previously occurred, Holders of Treasury Units shall not be permitted to effect Collateral Substitutions in accordance with the provisions of this Section 3.14 during the period commencing on and including the Business Day prior to the first of the three sequential Remarketing Dates comprising a Three‑Day Remarketing Period and ending on and including the Reset Effective Date relating to a Successful Remarketing during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period or, if none of the Remarketings during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period is successful, the Business Day following the last of the three sequential Remarketing Dates occurring during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period.
Holders of Treasury Units may make Collateral Substitutions and establish Corporate Units (i) only in integral multiples of 20 Treasury Units if Treasury Securities are being replaced by Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, or (ii) only in integral multiples of 80,000 Treasury Units (or such other number of Treasury Units as may be determined by the Remarketing Agents following a Successful Remarketing if the Reset Effective Date is not a Payment Date) if any Treasury Security is being replaced by the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio. To create 20 Corporate Units (if a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption has not occurred and the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures remain components of Corporate Units), or 80,000 Corporate Units (if a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption has occurred or the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Debentures as a result of a Successful Remarketing) or such other number of Corporate Units as may be determined by the Remarketing Agents following a Successful Remarketing if the Reset Effective Date is not a Payment Date, the Treasury Unit Holder shall
(a)    if the Treasury Portfolio has not replaced the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures as a component of Corporate Units as a result of a Successful Remarketing or a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption, deposit with the Collateral Agent $1,000 in aggregate principal amount of Debentures, which Debentures must have been purchased in the open market at the Treasury Unit Holder's expense, unless otherwise owned by the Treasury Unit Holder; or

(b)    if the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures as a component of Corporate Units as a result of a Successful Remarketing or a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption, deposit with the Collateral Agent the Applicable Ownership Interest in the





Treasury Portfolio for each 80,000 Corporate Units being created by the Holder, and having an aggregate principal amount of $4,000,000, which Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio must have been purchased in the open market at the Treasury Unit Holder's expense, unless otherwise owned by the Treasury Unit Holder; and

(c)    in each case, Transfer and surrender the related 20 Treasury Units, or in the event the Treasury Portfolio is a component of Corporate Units, 80,000 Treasury Units (or such other number of Treasury Units as may be determined by the Remarketing Agents following a Successful Remarketing if the Reset Effective Date is not a Payment Date), to the Purchase Contract Agent accompanied by an instruction to the Purchase Contract Agent, substantially in the form of Exhibit B to the Pledge Agreement, stating that the Holder has Transferred the relevant amount of Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, to the Collateral Agent and requesting that the Purchase Contract Agent instruct the Collateral Agent to release the Treasury Securities underlying such Treasury Units, whereupon the Purchase Contract Agent shall promptly give such instruction to the Collateral Agent, substantially in the form of Exhibit A to the Pledge Agreement.

Upon receipt of the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, described in clause (a) or (b) above and the instructions described in clause (c) above, in accordance with the terms of the Pledge Agreement, the Collateral Agent will release the Treasury Securities having a corresponding aggregate principal amount from the Pledge to the Purchase Contract Agent, on behalf of the Holder, free and clear of the Company's security interest therein, and upon receipt thereof the Purchase Contract Agent shall promptly:
(i)    cancel the related Treasury Units surrendered and Transferred;
(ii)    Transfer the Treasury Securities that had been components of such Treasury Units to the Holder; and
(iii)    authenticate, execute on behalf of such Holder and deliver a Corporate Unit Certificate executed by the Company in accordance with Section 3.3 evidencing the same number of Purchase Contracts as were evidenced by the cancelled Treasury Units.
Holders who elect to separate Treasury Securities from the related Purchase Contracts and to substitute Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, for such Treasury Securities shall be responsible for any fees or expenses payable to the Collateral Agent for its services as Collateral Agent in respect of the substitution, and the Company shall not be responsible for any such fees or expenses.
In the event a Holder making a Collateral Substitution pursuant to this Section 3.14 fails to effect a book‑entry transfer of the Treasury Units or fails to deliver a Treasury Unit Certificate to the Purchase Contract Agent after depositing the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio with the Collateral Agent, the Treasury Securities constituting a part of such Treasury Unit Certificate, and any interest on such Treasury Securities, shall be held in the name of the Purchase Contract Agent or its nominee in trust for the benefit of such Holder, until such Treasury Unit Certificate is so Transferred or the Treasury Unit is so delivered, or until such Holder provides evidence satisfactory to the Company and the Purchase Contract Agent that such Treasury Unit Certificate has been destroyed, mutilated, lost or stolen, together with any indemnity that may be required by the Purchase Contract Agent and the Company.





Except as provided in this Section 3.14, for so long as the Purchase Contract underlying a Treasury Unit remains in effect, such Treasury Unit shall not be separable into its constituent parts and the rights and obligations of the Holder of such Treasury Unit in respect of the Treasury Security and Purchase Contract comprising such Treasury Unit may be acquired, and may be Transferred and exchanged, only as an entire Treasury Unit.
SECTION 3.15.    Transfer of Collateral upon Occurrence of Termination Event
.
Upon the occurrence of a Termination Event and the Transfer to the Purchase Contract Agent of the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio or the Treasury Securities, as the case may be, underlying the Corporate Units and the Treasury Units pursuant to the terms of the Pledge Agreement, the Purchase Contract Agent shall request transfer instructions with respect to the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio or Treasury Securities, as the case may be, from each Holder by written request mailed to such Holder at its address as it appears in the Security Register. Upon book‑entry transfer of the Corporate Units or Treasury Units or delivery of a Corporate Unit Certificate or Treasury Unit Certificate to the Purchase Contract Agent with such transfer instructions, the Purchase Contract Agent shall transfer the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio or Treasury Securities, as the case may be, underlying such Corporate Units or Treasury Units, as the case may be, to such Holder by book‑entry transfer, or other appropriate procedures, in accordance with such instructions. In the event a Holder of Corporate Units or Treasury Units fails to effect such Transfer or delivery, the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio or Treasury Securities, as the case may be, underlying such Corporate Units or Treasury Units, as the case may be, and any interest thereon, shall be held in the name of the Purchase Contract Agent or its nominee in trust for the benefit of such Holder, until such Corporate Units or Treasury Units are transferred or the Corporate Unit Certificate or Treasury Unit Certificate is surrendered or such Holder provides satisfactory evidence that such Corporate Unit Certificate or Treasury Unit Certificate has been destroyed, mutilated, lost or stolen, together with any indemnity that may be required by the Purchase Contract Agent and the Company. In the case of the Treasury Portfolio or any Treasury Securities, the Purchase Contract Agent may dispose of the subject securities for cash and pay the applicable portion of such cash to the Holders in lieu of such Holders' Applicable Ownership Interest in such Treasury Portfolio, or any Treasury Securities, where such Holder would otherwise have been entitled to receive less than $1,000 of any such security.
SECTION 3.16.    No Consent to Assumption
.
Each Holder of a Unit, by its acceptance thereof, will be deemed expressly to have withheld any consent to the assumption under Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise, of the Purchase Contract by the Company, its trustee in bankruptcy, receiver, liquidator or a person or entity performing similar functions, in the event that the Company becomes a debtor under the Bankruptcy Code or subject to other similar Federal or State law providing for reorganization or liquidation.
ARTICLE IV

The Debentures

SECTION 4.1.    Payment of Interest; Rights to Interest Preserved; Interest Rate Reset; Notice
.





A payment of interest on the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or distribution with respect to the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, which is paid on any Payment Date shall, subject to receipt thereof by the Purchase Contract Agent from the Collateral Agent as provided by the terms of the Pledge Agreement, be paid to the Person in whose name the Corporate Unit Certificate (or one or more Predecessor Corporate Unit Certificates) of which such Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or such Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, is a part is registered at the close of business on the Record Date relating to such Payment Date.
Each Corporate Unit Certificate evidencing an Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures delivered under this Agreement upon registration of transfer of or in exchange for or in lieu of any other Corporate Unit Certificate shall carry the rights to payment of interest accrued and unpaid, and to accrue interest, which is carried by the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures underlying such other Corporate Unit Certificate.
In the case of any Corporate Unit with respect to which Cash Settlement of the underlying Purchase Contract is effected on the Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date pursuant to prior notice, or with respect to which Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement of the underlying Purchase Contract is effected on an Early Settlement Date or a Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date, as the case may be, or with respect to which a Collateral Substitution is effected, in each case on a date that is after any Record Date and on or prior to the next succeeding Payment Date, interest on the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or distributions with respect to the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, underlying such Corporate Units otherwise payable on such Payment Date shall be payable on such Payment Date notwithstanding such Cash Settlement or Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement or Collateral Substitution, and such interest or distributions shall, subject to receipt thereof by the Purchase Contract Agent, be payable to the Person in whose name the Corporate Unit Certificate (or one or more Predecessor Corporate Unit Certificates) was registered at the close of business on the Record Date. Except as otherwise expressly provided in the immediately preceding sentence, in the case of any Corporate Unit with respect to which Cash Settlement, Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement of the underlying Purchase Contract is effected, payments attributable to the Debentures underlying Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures or distributions on Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, that would otherwise be payable or made after the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, Early Settlement Date, or Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date, as the case may be, shall not be payable hereunder to the Holder of such Corporate Units; provided, however, that to the extent that such Holder continues to hold Separate Debentures or Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio that formerly comprised a part of such Holder's Corporate Units, such Holder shall be entitled to receive interest on such Separate Debentures or distributions on such Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio.
The Coupon Rate on the Debentures to be in effect on and after the Reset Effective Date will be determined on the Successful Remarketing Date with respect thereto, and reset to the Reset Rate. If there is no Successful Remarketing during the Period for Early Remarketing or the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period, the Coupon Rate on the Debentures will not be reset but will continue at the initial Coupon Rate.
SECTION 4.2.    Notice and Voting
.
Under and subject to the terms of the Pledge Agreement and this Agreement, the Purchase Contract Agent will be entitled to exercise the voting and any other consensual rights pertaining to the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures but only to the extent instructed by the Holders as described





below. Upon receipt of notice of any meeting at which holders of Debentures are entitled to vote or upon any solicitation of consents, waivers or proxies of holders of Debentures, the Purchase Contract Agent shall, as soon as practicable thereafter, mail to the Holders of Corporate Units a notice (a) containing such information as is contained in the notice or solicitation, (b) stating that each Corporate Unit Holder on the record date set by the Purchase Contract Agent therefor (which, to the extent possible, shall be the same date as the record date for determining the holders of Debentures entitled to vote) shall be entitled to instruct the Purchase Contract Agent as to the exercise of the voting rights pertaining to the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures constituting a part of such Holder's Corporate Units and (c) stating the manner in which such instructions may be given. Upon the written request of the Holders of Corporate Units on such record date, the Purchase Contract Agent shall endeavor insofar as practicable to vote or cause to be voted, in accordance with the instructions set forth in such requests, the maximum number of Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures as to which any particular voting instructions are received. In the absence of specific instructions from the Holder of Corporate Units, the Purchase Contract Agent shall abstain from voting the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures constituting a part of such Holder's Corporate Units. The Company hereby agrees, if applicable, to solicit Holders of Corporate Units to timely instruct the Purchase Contract Agent in order to enable the Purchase Contract Agent to vote such Debentures.
SECTION 4.3.    Substitution of the Treasury Portfolio for the Debentures
.
(a)    Upon the occurrence of (i) a Mandatory Redemption where the related Purchase Contracts have not been previously or concurrently terminated in accordance with Section 5.8 or (ii) a Special Event Redemption, in each case, prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the Redemption Price payable on the Mandatory Redemption Date or the Special Event Redemption Date, as the case may be, with respect to the Applicable Principal Amount of Debentures shall be delivered to the Collateral Agent in exchange for the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures. Pursuant to the terms of the Pledge Agreement, the Collateral Agent will apply an amount equal to the Redemption Amount to purchase on behalf of the Holders of Corporate Units the Treasury Portfolio and promptly remit the remaining portion of such Redemption Price, if any, to the Purchase Contract Agent for payment to the Holders of such Corporate Units. The Treasury Portfolio will be substituted for the outstanding Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures, and will be held by the Collateral Agent in accordance with the terms of the Pledge Agreement to secure the obligation of each Holder of a Corporate Unit to purchase the Common Stock on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date under the Purchase Contract constituting a part of such Corporate Unit. Following the occurrence of a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the Holders of Corporate Units and the Collateral Agent shall have such security interests, rights and obligations with respect to the Treasury Portfolio as the Holder of Corporate Units and the Collateral Agent had in respect of the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures subject to the Pledge thereof as provided in Article II, Article III, Article IV, Article V or Article VI of the Pledge Agreement, and any reference herein to the Debentures shall be deemed to be a reference to such Treasury Portfolio. The Company may cause to be made in any Corporate Unit Certificates thereafter to be issued such change in phraseology and form (but not in substance) as may be appropriate to reflect the substitution of the Applicable Ownership in the Treasury Portfolio for the Applicable Ownership in Debentures as collateral.

(b)    Upon a Successful Remarketing during the Period for Early Remarketing, the proceeds of such Remarketing (after deducting any Remarketing Fee) shall be delivered to the Collateral Agent in exchange for the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures. Pursuant to the terms of the Pledge Agreement, the Collateral Agent will apply an amount equal to the Treasury Portfolio Purchase Price to purchase on behalf of the Holders of Corporate Units the Treasury Portfolio and promptly remit the remaining





portion of such proceeds to the Purchase Contract Agent for payment to the Holders of such Corporate Units. The Treasury Portfolio will be substituted for the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures, and will be held by the Collateral Agent in accordance with the terms of the Pledge Agreement to secure the obligation of each Holder of a Corporate Unit to purchase the Common Stock on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date under the Purchase Contract constituting a part of such Corporate Unit. Following a Successful Remarketing during the Period for Early Remarketing, the Holders of Corporate Units and the Collateral Agent shall have such security interests, rights and obligations with respect to the Treasury Portfolio as the Holders of Corporate Units and the Collateral Agent had in respect of the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures subject to the Pledge thereof as provided in Article II, Article III, Article IV, Article V or Article VI of the Pledge Agreement, and any reference herein to the Debentures shall be deemed to be reference to such Treasury Portfolio. The Company may cause to be made in any Corporate Unit Certificates thereafter to be issued such change in phraseology and form (but not in substance) as may be appropriate to reflect the substitution of the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio for Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures as collateral.

SECTION 4.4.    Consent to Treatment for Tax Purposes
.
Each Holder of a Corporate Unit or a Treasury Unit, by its acceptance thereof, covenants and agrees to treat itself as the owner, for Federal, State and local income and franchise tax purposes, of (i) the related Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the related Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, in the case of the Corporate Units, or (ii) the Treasury Securities, in the case of the Treasury Units. Each Holder of a Corporate Unit, by its acceptance thereof, further covenants and agrees to treat the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures as indebtedness of NEE Capital for Federal, State and local income and franchise tax purposes.
ARTICLE V

The Purchase Contracts

SECTION 5.1.    Purchase of Shares of Common Stock
.
Each Purchase Contract shall, unless a Termination Event or an Early Settlement in accordance with Section 5.9 hereof or a Fundamental Change Early Settlement in accordance with Section 5.6(b)(ii) hereof has occurred with respect to the Units of which such Purchase Contract is a part, obligate the Holder of the related Unit to purchase, and the Company to sell, on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, for $50 in cash (the “Purchase Price”), a number of newly‑issued shares of Common Stock equal to the applicable Settlement Rate. The “Settlement Rate” is equal to
(a) if the Applicable Market Value (as defined below) is equal to or greater than $80.58 (the “Threshold Appreciation Price”), 0.6205 shares of Common Stock per Purchase Contract (the “Minimum Settlement Rate”);
(b) if the Applicable Market Value is less than the Threshold Appreciation Price, but is greater than $67.15 (the “Reference Price”), the number of shares of Common Stock per Purchase Contract having a value equal to $50.00 divided by the Applicable Market Value; and
(c) if the Applicable Market Value is less than or equal to the Reference Price, 0.7446 shares of Common Stock per Purchase Contract (the “Maximum Settlement Rate”),





in each case subject to adjustment as provided in Section 5.6 (and in each case rounded upward or downward to the nearest 1/10,000th of a share). As provided in Section 5.10, no fractional shares of Common Stock will be issued upon settlement of Purchase Contracts.
The “Applicable Market Value” means the average of the Closing Price per share of Common Stock on each Trading Day during the Observation Period; provided, however, that if the Company enters into a Reorganization Event, the Applicable Market Value will mean the value of an Exchange Property Unit. Following the occurrence of any such Reorganization Event, references herein to the purchase or issuance of shares of Common Stock shall be construed to be references to settlement into Exchange Property Units. For purposes of calculating the value of an Exchange Property Unit, (x) the value of any common stock included in the Exchange Property Unit shall be determined using the average of the Closing Price per share of such common stock on each Trading Day during the Observation Period (adjusted as set forth under Section 5.6) and (y) the value of any other property, including securities other than common stock, included in the Exchange Property Unit, shall be the value of such property on the first Trading Day of the Observation Period (as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors, whose determination shall be conclusive and described in a Board Resolution). The “Closing Price” of the Common Stock on any date of determination means the closing sale price (or, if no closing price is reported, the last reported sale price) of the Common Stock on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) on such date or, if the Common Stock is not listed for trading on the NYSE on any such date, as reported in the composite transactions for the principal United States securities exchange on which the Common Stock is so listed, or if the Common Stock is not so reported, the last quoted bid price for the Common Stock in the over‑the‑counter market as reported by the OTC Markets Group Inc. or similar organization, or, if such bid price is not available, the market value of the Common Stock on such date as determined by a nationally recognized independent investment banking firm retained by the Company for this purpose. A “Trading Day” means a day on which the Common Stock (A) is not suspended from trading on any national or regional securities exchange or over‑the‑counter market at the close of business and (B) has traded at least once on the national or regional securities exchange or over‑the‑counter market that is the primary market for the trading of the Common Stock at the close of business. If the Common Stock is not traded on a securities exchange or quoted in the over‑the‑counter market, then “Trading Day” shall mean Business Day.
Each Holder of a Corporate Unit or a Treasury Unit, by its acceptance thereof, irrevocably authorizes the Purchase Contract Agent to enter into and perform the related Purchase Contract on its behalf as its attorney‑in‑fact (including the execution of Certificates on behalf of such Holder), agrees to be bound by the terms and provisions thereof, covenants and agrees to perform its obligations under such Purchase Contracts, consents to the provisions hereof, irrevocably authorizes the Purchase Contract Agent to enter into and perform the Pledge Agreement on its behalf as its attorney‑in‑fact, and consents to and agrees to be bound by the Pledge of the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio or the Treasury Securities, as the case may be, pursuant to the Pledge Agreement. Each Holder of a Corporate Unit or a Treasury Unit, by its acceptance thereof, further covenants and agrees, that, to the extent and in the manner provided in Section 5.4 and the Pledge Agreement, but subject to the terms thereof, payments in respect of the principal and interest on the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Proceeds of the Treasury Securities or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date shall be paid by the Collateral Agent to the Company in satisfaction of such Holder's obligations under such Purchase Contract and such Holder shall acquire no right, title or interest in such payments.
Upon registration of transfer of a Certificate, the transferee shall be bound (without the necessity of any other action on the part of such transferee, except as may be required by the Purchase Contract Agent pursuant hereto), under the terms of this Agreement, the Purchase Contracts underlying such Certificate and





the Pledge Agreement and the transferor shall be released from the obligations under this Agreement, the Purchase Contracts underlying the Certificates so transferred and the Pledge Agreement. The Company covenants and agrees, and each Holder of a Certificate, by its acceptance thereof, likewise covenants and agrees, to be bound by the provisions of this paragraph.
SECTION 5.2.    Contract Adjustment Payments
.
(a)    Subject to Section 5.2(d) and Section 5.3 herein, the Company shall pay, on each Payment Date, the Contract Adjustment Payments payable in respect of each Purchase Contract to the Person in whose name a Certificate (or one or more Predecessor Certificates) is registered on the Security Register at the close of business on the Record Date relating to such Payment Date. The Contract Adjustment Payments will be payable at the Corporate Trust Office or, at the option of the Company, by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto at such Person's address as it appears on the Security Register or by wire transfer to an account appropriately designated in writing by the Person entitled to payment. The Contract Adjustment Payments will accrue from September 11, 2012.
(b)    Upon the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Company's obligation to pay Contract Adjustment Payments (including any accrued or Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments) shall cease.
(c)    Each Certificate delivered under this Agreement upon registration of transfer of or in exchange for or in lieu of any other Certificate (including as a result of a Collateral Substitution or the recreation of a Corporate Unit) shall carry the rights to Contract Adjustment Payments accrued and unpaid, and to accrue Contract Adjustment Payments, which were carried by the Purchase Contracts which were represented by such other Certificates.
(d)    Subject to Section 5.9 and Section 5.6(b), in the case of any Unit with respect to which Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement of the underlying Purchase Contract is effected on an Early Settlement Date or a Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date, as applicable, that is after any Record Date and on or prior to the next succeeding Payment Date, Contract Adjustment Payments, if any, otherwise payable on such Payment Date shall be payable on such Payment Date notwithstanding such Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement, and such Contract Adjustment Payments shall, subject to receipt thereof by the Purchase Contract Agent, be payable to the Person in whose name the Certificate evidencing such Unit (or one or more Predecessor Certificates) was registered at the close of business on such Record Date. Except as otherwise expressly provided in the immediately preceding sentence, in the case of any Unit with respect to which Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement of the underlying Purchase Contract is effected on an Early Settlement Date or Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date, as applicable, Contract Adjustment Payments (but not, for the avoidance of doubt, Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments) that would otherwise be payable after the Early Settlement Date or Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date with respect to such Purchase Contract shall not be payable.
The Company's obligations with respect to Contract Adjustment Payments (including any accrued or Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments), will be subordinate and junior in right of payment to the Company's obligations under any Senior Indebtedness.
Upon any payment or distribution of assets of the Company to its creditors upon any dissolution, winding up, liquidation or reorganization, whether voluntary or involuntary, or in bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership or other similar proceedings, the holders of all Senior Indebtedness shall first be entitled to receive payment in full of all amounts due or to become due thereon, or payment of such amounts shall have been provided for, before the Holders of the Corporate Units or Treasury Units shall be entitled to receive any Contract Adjustment Payments with respect to any such Corporate Units or Treasury Units.





By reason of this subordination, in those events, holders of the Company's Senior Indebtedness may receive more, ratably, and Holders of the Corporate Units or Treasury Units may receive less, ratably, than the Company's other creditors. Because the Company is a holding company, contract adjustment payments on the Corporate Units of Treasury Units are effectively subordinated to all indebtedness and other liabilities, including trade payables, debt and preferred stock incurred or issued by the Company's subsidiaries. The Company's subsidiaries are separate and distinct legal entities and have no obligation to pay any contract adjustment payments or to make any funds available for such payment.
In addition, no payment of Contract Adjustment Payments with respect to any Corporate Units or Treasury Units may be made if:
(i)    any payment default on any Senior Indebtedness of the Company has occurred and is continuing beyond any applicable grace period; or
(ii)    any default on any indebtedness of the Company other than a payment default with respect to Senior Indebtedness occurs and is continuing that permits the acceleration of the maturity on any indebtedness of the Company and the Purchase Contract Agent receives a written notice of such default from the Company or the holders of such Senior Indebtedness.
SECTION 5.3.    Deferral of Payment Dates for Contract Adjustment Payments
.
The Company shall have the right, at any time prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, to defer the payment of any or all of the Contract Adjustment Payments otherwise payable on any Payment Date to any subsequent Payment Date (a “Deferral Period”), but only if the Company shall give the Holders and the Purchase Contract Agent written notice of its election to defer such payment (specifying the amount to be deferred and the expected Deferral Period) at least ten Business Days prior to the earlier of (i) the next succeeding Payment Date or (ii) the date the Company is required to give notice of the Record Date or Payment Date with respect to payment of such Contract Adjustment Payments to the NYSE or other applicable self‑regulatory organization or to Holders of the Units, but in any event not less than one Business Day prior to such Record Date. Prior to the expiration of any Deferral Period, the Company may further extend such Deferral Period to any subsequent Payment Date, but not beyond the Purchase Contract Settlement Date (or any applicable Early Settlement Date or Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date).
In connection with any Contract Adjustment Payments so deferred, additional Contract Adjustment Payments on the amounts so deferred will accrue at the rate of 5.889% per annum (computed on the basis of a 360‑day year consisting of twelve 30‑day months), compounding on each succeeding Payment Date, until paid in full (such deferred installments of Contract Adjustment Payments, if any, together with the accrued additional Contract Adjustment Payments accrued thereon, being referred to herein as the “Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments”). Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments, if any, shall be due on the next succeeding Payment Date except to the extent that payment is deferred pursuant to this Section 5.3.
At the end of each Deferral Period, including as the same may be extended pursuant to this Section 5.3, or, in the event of an Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement, on the Early Settlement Date or Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date, as the case may be, the Company shall pay all Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments then due in the manner set forth in Section 5.2(a) (in the case of the end of a Deferral Period), in the manner set forth in Section 5.9 (in the case of an Early Settlement) or in the manner set forth in Section 5.6(b) (in the case of a Fundamental Change Early Settlement) to the extent such amounts are not deducted from the amount otherwise payable by the Holder in the case of a Cash Settlement, any Early Settlement or any Fundamental Change Early Settlement. In the event of an Early Settlement, the





Company shall pay all Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments due on the Purchase Contracts being settled early through the Payment Date immediately preceding the applicable Early Settlement Date, to the extent such amounts are not deducted as described above. In the event of a Fundamental Change Early Settlement, the Company shall pay all Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments due on the Purchase Contracts being settled on the Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date to but excluding such Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date, to the extent such amounts are not deducted as described above.
At the end of the Deferral Period and the payment of all Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments and all accrued and unpaid Contract Adjustment Payments then due, the Company may commence a new Deferral Period, provided that such Deferral Period, together with all extensions thereof, may not extend beyond the Purchase Contract Settlement Date (or any applicable Early Settlement Date or Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date). Except in the case of an Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement, no Contract Adjustment Payments shall be due and payable during a Deferral Period except at the end thereof, except that prior to the end of such Deferral Period, the Company, at its option, may prepay on any Payment Date all or any portion of the Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments accrued during the then elapsed portion of such Deferral Period.
No Contract Adjustment Payments may be deferred to a date that is after the Purchase Contract Settlement Date (or, with respect to Purchase Contracts for which Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement has occurred, the Early Settlement Date or the Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date, as the case may be). If the Purchase Contracts are terminated upon the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Holder's right to receive Contract Adjustment Payments and Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments will terminate.
In the event the Company exercises its option to defer the payment of Contract Adjustment Payments, then, until the Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments have been paid, the Company shall not declare or pay dividends on, make distributions with respect to, or redeem, purchase or acquire, or make a liquidation payment with respect to, any of its capital stock or make guarantee payments with respect to the foregoing other than:
(i)    purchases, redemptions or acquisitions of shares of capital stock of the Company in connection with any employment contract, benefit plan or other similar arrangement with or for the benefit of any one or more employees, officers, directors, consultants or agents or a stock purchase or dividend reinvestment plan, or the satisfaction by the Company of its obligations pursuant to any contract or security outstanding on the date that payment of Contract Adjustment Payments are deferred requiring the Company to purchase, redeem or acquire its capital stock,
(ii)    as a result of a reclassification of the Company's capital stock or the exchange or conversion of all or a portion of one class or series of the Company's capital stock or the capital stock of one of the Company's subsidiaries for another class or series of the Company's capital stock,
(iii)    any exchange, redemption or conversion of any class or series of the Company's indebtedness for any class or series of the Company's capital stock,
(iv)    the purchase of fractional interests in shares of the Company's capital stock pursuant to the conversion or exchange provisions of the Company's capital stock or the security being converted or exchanged, or in connection with the settlement of stock purchase contracts,
(vi)    dividends or other distributions paid or made in capital stock of the Company (or rights to acquire capital stock), or repurchases, redemptions or acquisitions of capital stock in connection with the





issuance or exchange of capital stock (or securities convertible into or exchangeable for shares of the Company's capital stock and distributions in connection with the settlement of stock purchase contracts) or
(v)    redemptions, exchanges or repurchases of, or with respect to, any rights outstanding under a shareholder rights plan or the declaration or payment thereunder of a dividend or other distribution of or with respect to rights in the future.
SECTION 5.4.    Payment of Purchase Price
.
(a)    (i)    Unless the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures as a component of the Corporate Units or a Holder settles the underlying Purchase Contract through the early delivery of cash to the Purchase Contract Agent in the manner described in Section 5.9 or Section 5.6(b), each Holder of a Corporate Unit must notify the Purchase Contract Agent of its intention to pay in cash (“Cash Settlement”) the Purchase Price for the shares of Common Stock to be purchased pursuant to the Purchase Contract on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date by presenting and surrendering to the Purchase Contract Agent the Corporate Unit Certificate with a notice in substantially the form of Exhibit C hereto on the reverse side of such Certificate completed and executed. Such presentation, surrender and notice must be made at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time (x) on the seventh Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, or (y) if all the Remarketings during the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period result in Failed Remarketings, on the second Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date. The Purchase Contract Agent shall promptly notify the Collateral Agent of the receipt of such a notice from a Holder intending to make a Cash Settlement.
(ii)    A Holder of a Corporate Unit who has so notified the Purchase Contract Agent of its intention to make a Cash Settlement is required to pay the Purchase Price to the Collateral Agent prior to 11:00 a.m., New York City time (x) on the sixth Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, or (y) if all the Remarketings during the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period result in Failed Remarketings, on the Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, in lawful money of the United States by certified or cashiers' check or wire transfer, in each case in immediately available funds payable to or upon the order of the Company. Any cash received by the Collateral Agent will be invested promptly by the Collateral Agent in Permitted Investments and paid to the Company on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date in settlement of the Purchase Contract in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Pledge Agreement. Any funds received by the Collateral Agent in respect of the investment earnings from the investment in such Permitted Investments, will be distributed to the Purchase Contract Agent when received for payment to the Holder.
(iii)    If a Holder of a Corporate Unit fails to notify the Purchase Contract Agent of its intention to effect a Cash Settlement in accordance with Section 5.4(a)(i), or does notify the Purchase Contract Agent of its intention to effect a Cash Settlement in accordance with Section 5.4(a)(i), but fails to deliver cash as required by Section 5.4(a)(ii), such Holder shall be deemed to have consented to the disposition of the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures pursuant to the Remarketing as described below and the Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the Company, will exercise its rights as a secured party with respect to the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures at the direction of the Company to





cause the Remarketing of the Debentures underlying such Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures.
In order to dispose of the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures of Corporate Unit Holders who have not notified the Purchase Contract Agent of their intention to effect a Cash Settlement with respect to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date as provided in Section 5.4(a)(i) or who have notified the Purchase Contract Agent of their intention to effect a Cash Settlement in accordance with Section 5.4(a)(i), but failed to deliver cash as required by Section 5.4(a)(ii), the Company shall engage the Remarketing Agents pursuant to the Remarketing Agreement to sell the Debentures. In order to facilitate the Remarketing, the Purchase Contract Agent shall notify the Remarketing Agents, by 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on the Business Day immediately preceding the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period, of the aggregate amount of Debentures to be remarketed. Concurrently, the Collateral Agent, pursuant to the terms of the Pledge Agreement, will present for Remarketing such aggregate amount of Debentures to the Remarketing Agents. Upon receipt of such notice from the Purchase Contract Agent and the Debentures from the Collateral Agent, the Remarketing Agents will, during the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period, use its commercially reasonable efforts to remarket the Debentures at a price equal to or greater than 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the Debentures remarketed plus the applicable Remarketing Fee. Upon a Successful Remarketing, and after deducting any Remarketing Fee, the Remarketing Agents will remit the remaining portion of the proceeds from such Remarketing to the Collateral Agent. Such portion of the proceeds, equal to the aggregate principal amount of such Debentures, will automatically be applied by the Collateral Agent, in accordance with the Pledge Agreement, to satisfy in full such Corporate Unit Holders' obligations to pay the Purchase Price for the Common Stock under the related Purchase Contracts on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date. Any proceeds in excess of those required to pay the Purchase Price and the Remarketing Fee will be remitted to the Purchase Contract Agent for payment to the Holders of the related Corporate Units. Corporate Unit Holders whose Debentures are so remarketed will not otherwise be responsible for the payment of any Remarketing Fee in connection therewith.
If there is no Successful Remarketing during the Period for Early Remarketing and if all the Remarketings during the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period result in Failed Remarketings, each Corporate Unit Holder of Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures (as to which the related Purchase Contract has not been settled with cash) shall be deemed to have exercised its Put Right with respect to its Applicable Ownership Interests Debentures, and to have elected that a portion of the Put Price equal to the principal amount of the relevant Debenture underlying Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures be applied against such Corporate Unit Holder's obligations to pay the Purchase Price for the Common Stock issued in accordance with each related Purchase Contract on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, in accordance with the terms of the Pledge Agreement. Following such application, such Holder's obligations to pay the Purchase Price for the Common Stock will be deemed to be satisfied in full, and upon receipt of written confirmation from the Company that a portion of the Put Price in the amount specified in such notice has been applied to pay the Purchase Price for the Common Stock, the Collateral Agent shall cause the Securities Intermediary to release the Debentures underlying all such Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures from the Collateral Account and shall promptly transfer such Debentures to the Company. Thereafter, the Collateral Agent shall promptly remit the remaining portion of the Proceeds of such Holder's exercise of its Put Right, in excess of the aggregate Purchase Price for Common Stock, if any, to be issued in accordance with each related Purchase Contract to the Purchase Contract Agent for payment to such Holder.
(b)    With respect to any Debentures beneficially owned by Holders who have elected Cash Settlement but failed to deliver cash as required in Section 5.4(a)(ii), or with respect to Debentures which are subject to a Failed Remarketing, the Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Company reserves all of its rights as a secured party with respect thereto.





(c)    (i)    Unless a Holder of Treasury Units or Corporate Units (if the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Debentures as a component of the Corporate Units) settles the underlying Purchase Contract through the early delivery of cash to the Purchase Contract Agent in the manner described in Section 5.9, each Holder of a Treasury Unit or a Corporate Unit (if the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Debentures as a component of the Corporate Units) must notify the Purchase Contract Agent of its intention to pay in cash the Purchase Price for the shares of Common Stock to be purchased pursuant to the Purchase Contract on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date by presenting and surrendering to the Purchase Contract Agent the Treasury Unit Certificate or Corporate Unit Certificate, as the case may be, with a notice in substantially the form of Exhibit C hereto on the reverse side of such Certificate completed and executed. Such presentation, surrender and notice must be made at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the second Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date. The Purchase Contract Agent shall promptly notify the Collateral Agent of the receipt of such a notice from a Holder intending to make a Cash Settlement.
(ii)    A Holder of a Treasury Unit or Corporate Unit (if the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Debentures, as a component of the Corporate Units) who has so notified the Purchase Contract Agent of its intention to make a Cash Settlement in accordance with Section 5.4(c)(i) is required to pay the Purchase Price to the Collateral Agent prior to 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on the Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date in lawful money of the United States by certified or cashiers' check or wire transfer, in each case in immediately available funds payable to or upon the order of the Company. Any cash received by the Collateral Agent will be invested promptly by the Collateral Agent in Permitted Investments and paid to the Company on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date in settlement of the Purchase Contract in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Pledge Agreement. Any funds received by the Collateral Agent in respect of the investment earnings from the investment in such Permitted Investments will be distributed to the Purchase Contract Agent when received for payment to the Holder.
(iii)    If a Holder of a Treasury Unit or a Corporate Unit (if the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Debentures as a component of Corporate Units) fails to notify the Purchase Contract Agent of its intention to effect a Cash Settlement in accordance with Section 5.4(c)(i), or if such Holder does notify the Purchase Contract Agent as provided in Section 5.4(c)(i) of its intention to pay the Purchase Price in cash, but fails to make such payment as required by Section 5.4(c)(ii), then upon the maturity of the Pledged Treasury Securities or the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, held by the Collateral Agent on the Business Day immediately prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the principal amount of the Pledged Treasury Securities or the portion of the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio corresponding to such Purchase Contracts, as the case may be, received by the Collateral Agent will, upon the written direction of the Company, be invested promptly in overnight Permitted Investments. On the Purchase Contract Settlement Date an amount equal to the Purchase Price will be remitted to the Company in settlement of the Purchase Contract in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Pledge Agreement without receiving any instructions from the Holder. In the event the sum of the proceeds from the related Pledged Treasury Securities or the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, and the investment earnings earned from such investments is in excess of the aggregate Purchase Price of the Purchase Contracts being settled thereby, the Collateral Agent will distribute such





excess to the Purchase Contract Agent for the benefit of the Holder of the related Treasury Unit or Corporate Unit when received.
Unless the Treasury Portfolio has replaced the Debentures as a component of Corporate Units, Holders shall not be permitted to make Cash Settlements in accordance with the provisions of this Section 5.4 during the period commencing on and including the Business Day prior to the first of the three sequential Remarketing Dates comprising a Three‑Day Remarketing Period and ending on and including the Reset Effective Date relating to a Successful Remarketing during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period or, if none of the Remarketings during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period is successful, the Business Day following the last of the three sequential Remarketing Dates occurring during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period.
(d)    Any distribution to Holders of excess funds and interest described above, shall be payable at the Corporate Trust Office maintained for that purpose or, at the option of the Holder, by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto at such address as it appears on the Security Register.
(e)    The Company shall not be obligated to issue any shares of Common Stock in respect of a Purchase Contract or deliver any certificate therefor to the Holder unless it shall have received payment in full of the Purchase Price for the shares of Common Stock to be purchased thereunder in the manner herein set forth.
(f)    Upon Cash Settlement with respect to a Purchase Contract, (i) the Collateral Agent will, in accordance with the terms of the Pledge Agreement, cause the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures or the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, or the Pledged Treasury Securities, in each case underlying the relevant Unit, to be released from the Pledge by the Collateral Agent free and clear of any security interest of the Company and transferred to the Purchase Contract Agent for delivery to the Holder thereof or its designee as soon as practicable and (ii) subject to the receipt thereof from the Collateral Agent, the Purchase Contract Agent shall, by book‑entry transfer, or other procedures, in accordance with instructions provided by the Holder thereof, Transfer the Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, or such Treasury Securities (or, if no such instructions are given to the Purchase Contract Agent by the Holder, the Purchase Contract Agent shall hold the Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, or such Treasury Securities, and any interest or other distribution thereon, in the name of the Purchase Contract Agent or its nominee in trust for the benefit of such Holder).
(g)    The obligations of the Holders to pay the Purchase Price are non‑recourse obligations and, except to the extent satisfied by Early Settlement, Fundamental Change Early Settlement or Cash Settlement or terminated upon a Termination Event, are payable solely out of any Cash Settlement or the proceeds of any Collateral pledged to secure the obligations of the Holders with respect to such Purchase Price and in no event will Holders be liable for any deficiency between the proceeds of Collateral disposition and the Purchase Price.

SECTION 5.5.    Issuance of Shares of Common Stock
.
Unless a Termination Event shall have occurred, and except with respect to Purchase Contracts with respect to which there has been an Early Settlement or a Fundamental Change Early Settlement, on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, upon the Company's receipt of payment in full of the Purchase Price for the shares of Common Stock purchased by the Holders pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this





Article V and subject to Section 5.6(b), the Company shall issue and deposit with the Purchase Contract Agent, for the benefit of the Holders of the Outstanding Units, one or more certificates representing the newly‑issued shares of Common Stock registered in the name of the Purchase Contract Agent (or its nominee) as custodian for the Holders (such certificates for shares of Common Stock, together with any dividends or other distributions for which both a record date and payment date for such dividend or other distribution has occurred after the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, being hereinafter referred to as the “Purchase Contract Settlement Fund”) to which the Holders are entitled hereunder. Subject to the foregoing, upon surrender of a Certificate to the Purchase Contract Agent on or after the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, together with settlement instructions thereon duly completed and executed, the Holder of such Certificate shall be entitled to receive in exchange therefor a certificate representing that number of whole shares of Common Stock which such Holder is entitled to receive pursuant to the provisions of this Article V (after taking into account all Units then held by such Holder) together with cash in lieu of fractional shares as provided in Section 5.10 and any dividends or other distributions with respect to such shares comprising part of the Purchase Contract Settlement Fund, but without any interest thereon, and any Certificate so surrendered shall forthwith be cancelled. Such shares shall be registered in the name of the Holder or the Holder's designee as specified in the settlement instructions provided by the Holder to the Purchase Contract Agent. If any shares of Common Stock issued in respect of Purchase Contracts are to be registered to a Person other than the Person in whose name the Certificate evidencing such Purchase Contracts is registered, no such registration shall be made unless the Person requesting such registration has paid any transfer and other taxes required by reason of such registration in a name other than that of the registered Holder of the Certificate evidencing such Purchase Contracts or has established to the satisfaction of the Company that such tax either has been paid or is not payable.

SECTION 5.6.    Adjustment of Fixed Settlement Rate; Fundamental Change Early Settlement
.
(a)    Adjustments for Dividends, Distributions, Stock Splits, Etc.

(1)    Stock Dividends. In case the Company shall pay or make a dividend or other distribution on the Common Stock in Common Stock, each Fixed Settlement Rate in effect at the opening of business on the day following the date fixed for the determination of shareholders entitled to receive such dividend or other distribution, shall be increased by dividing such Fixed Settlement Rate by a fraction the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding at the close of business on the date fixed for such determination and the denominator of which shall be the sum of such number of shares and the total number of shares constituting such dividend or other distribution, such increase to become effective immediately after the opening of business on the day following the date fixed for such determination. For the purposes of this Section 5.6(a)(1), the number of shares of Common Stock at any time outstanding shall not include shares held in the treasury of the Company but shall include any shares issuable in respect of any scrip certificates issued in lieu of fractions of shares of Common Stock. The Company will not pay any dividend or make any other distribution on shares of Common Stock held in the treasury of the Company.
(2)    Stock Purchase Rights, Options, Etc. In case the Company shall issue rights, options, warrants or other securities to all holders of its Common Stock (that are not available on an equivalent basis to Holders of the Units upon settlement of the Purchase Contracts forming a component of such Units) entitling such holders of Common Stock, for a period expiring within 45 days from the date of issuance of such rights, options, warrants or other securities, to subscribe for or purchase shares of Common Stock at a price per share less than the Current Market Price per share of Common Stock on the date fixed for the determination of shareholders entitled to receive such rights, options, warrants or securities (other than





pursuant to any dividend reinvestment plan, share purchase plan or similar plan, including such a plan that provides for purchases of Common Stock by non‑shareholders), each Fixed Settlement Rate in effect at the opening of business on the day following the date fixed for such determination shall be increased by dividing such Fixed Settlement Rate by a fraction the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding at the close of business on the date fixed for such determination plus the number of shares of Common Stock which the aggregate of the offering price of the total number of shares of Common Stock so offered for subscription or purchase would purchase at such Current Market Price and the denominator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding at the close of business on the date fixed for such determination plus the number of shares of Common Stock so offered for subscription or purchase, such increase to become effective immediately after the opening of business on the day following the date fixed for such determination. For the purposes of this Section 5.6(a)(2), the number of shares of Common Stock at any time outstanding shall not include shares held in the treasury of the Company but shall include any shares issuable in respect of any scrip certificates issued in lieu of fractions of shares of Common Stock. The Company shall not issue any such rights, options, warrants or securities in respect of shares of Common Stock held in the treasury of the Company.
(3)    Stock Splits, Reverse Splits and Combinations. In case outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be subdivided, split or reclassified into a greater number of shares of Common Stock, each Fixed Settlement Rate in effect at the opening of business on the day following the day upon which such subdivision, split or reclassification becomes effective shall be proportionately increased, and, conversely, in case outstanding shares of Common Stock shall each be combined or reclassified into a smaller number of shares of Common Stock, each Fixed Settlement Rate in effect at the opening of business on the day following the day upon which such combination or reclassification becomes effective shall be proportionately reduced, such increase or reduction, as the case may be, to become effective immediately after the opening of business on the day following the day upon which such subdivision, split, reclassification or combination becomes effective.
(4)    Debt or Asset Distributions. (i) In case the Company shall, by dividend or otherwise, distribute to all holders of its Common Stock evidences of its indebtedness or assets (including securities, but excluding any rights, options, warrants or other securities referred to in Section 5.6(a)(2), any dividend or other distribution paid exclusively in cash referred to in Section 5.6(a)(5) (including the Reference Dividend as described therein), any dividend or distribution referred to in Section 5.6(a)(1) and any dividend, shares of capital stock of any class or series, or similar equity interests, of or relating to a subsidiary or other business unit in the case of a Spin‑Off referred to in Section 5.6(a)(4)(ii), each Fixed Settlement Rate in effect at the opening of business on the day following the day on which such dividend or other distribution was effected shall be adjusted so that the same shall equal the rate determined by dividing such Fixed Settlement Rate in effect immediately prior to the close of business on the date fixed for the determination of shareholders entitled to receive such distribution by a fraction the numerator of which shall be the Current Market Price per share of the Common Stock on the date fixed for such determination less the then fair market value (as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors, whose good faith determination shall be conclusive and described in a Board Resolution) of the portion of the assets or evidences of indebtedness so distributed applicable to one share of Common Stock and the denominator of which shall be such Current Market Price per share of Common Stock, such adjustment to become effective immediately prior to the opening of business on the day following the date fixed for the determination of shareholders entitled to receive such distribution. In any case in which this Section 5.6(a)(4) is applicable, Section 5.6(a)(2) shall not be applicable and in any case in which this Section 5.6(a)(4)(i) is applicable, Section 5.6(a)(4)(ii) is not applicable.





(ii)    In the case of a Spin‑Off, each Fixed Settlement Rate in effect immediately before the close of business on the record date fixed for determination of shareholders of the Company entitled to receive the distribution will be increased by dividing such Fixed Settlement Rate by a fraction, the numerator of which is the Current Market Price per share of Common Stock and the denominator of which is the Current Market Price per share of Common Stock plus the Fair Market Value of the portion of those shares of capital stock or similar equity interests so distributed applicable to one share of Common Stock. Any adjustment to the Fixed Settlement Rate under this Section 5.6(a)(4)(ii) will occur on the date that is the earlier of (A) the tenth Trading Day from, and including, the effective date of the Spin‑Off and (B) in the case of any Spin‑Off that is effected simultaneously with an Initial Public Offering of the securities being distributed in the Spin‑Off, the date on which the initial public offering price of the securities being offered in such Initial Public Offering is determined. In the event of a Spin‑Off that is not effected simultaneously with an Initial Public Offering of the securities being distributed in the Spin‑Off, the Fair Market Value of the securities to be distributed to holders of Common Stock means the average of the Closing Prices of those securities over the first 10 Trading Days following the effective date of the Spin‑Off. For purposes of such a Spin‑Off, the Current Market Price of the Common Stock means the average of the Closing Prices of the Common Stock over the first 10 Trading Days following the effective date of the Spin‑Off.
(5)    Cash Distributions. In case the Company shall, by dividend or otherwise, distribute to all holders of its Common Stock cash during any quarterly period (excluding any cash that is distributed in a Reorganization Event to which Section 5.6(b) applies or as part of a distribution referred to in Section 5.6(a)(4)) in an amount in excess of $0.60 per share of Common Stock per quarter (the “Reference Dividend”), immediately after the close of business on the date fixed for determination of the holders of Common Stock entitled to receive such distribution, each Fixed Settlement Rate shall be increased by dividing such Fixed Settlement Rate in effect immediately prior to the close of business on the date fixed for determination of the holders of Common Stock entitled to receive such distribution by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be equal to the Current Market Price per share of Common Stock on the date fixed for such determination less the per share amount of the distribution and the denominator of which shall be equal to the Current Market Price per share of Common Stock on the date fixed for such determination minus the Reference Dividend. The Reference Dividend is subject to adjustment (without duplication) from time to time in a manner inversely proportional to any adjustment made to each Fixed Settlement Rate under Section 5.6(a); provided that no adjustment will be made to the Reference Dividend for any adjustment made pursuant to this Section 5.6(a)(5). In the event that such dividend or distribution is not so paid or made, each Fixed Settlement Rate shall again be adjusted to be the Fixed Settlement Rate which would then be in effect if such dividend or distribution had not been declared.
(6)    Tender Offers and Exchange Offers. In the case that a tender offer or exchange offer made by the Company or any subsidiary of the Company for all or any portion of the Common Stock shall expire and such tender offer or exchange offer (as amended through the expiration thereof) shall require the payment to holders of the Common Stock (based on the acceptance (up to any maximum specified in the terms of the tender offer or exchange offer) of Reacquired Shares) of an aggregate consideration having a fair market value (as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors, whose good faith determination shall be conclusive and described in a Board Resolution) per share of Common Stock that exceeds the closing price per share of Common Stock on the Trading Day next succeeding the last date on which tenders or exchanges may be made pursuant to such tender offer or exchange offer, then, immediately prior to the opening of business on the Trading Day after the date of the last time (the “Expiration Time”) tenders or exchanges could have been made pursuant to such tender offer or exchange offer (as amended through the Expiration Time), each Fixed Settlement Rate shall be increased by dividing such Fixed Settlement Rate immediately prior to the close of business on the date of the Expiration Time by a fraction (A) the numerator of which shall be equal to (x) the product of (I) the Current Market Price per share of Common Stock on the





date of the Expiration Time and (II) the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding (including any tendered or exchanged shares) on the date of the Expiration Time less (y) the amount of cash plus the fair market value (determined as aforesaid) of the aggregate consideration, if any, other than cash, payable to holders of Common Stock pursuant to the tender offer or exchange offer (assuming the acceptance, up to any maximum specified in the terms of the tender offer or exchange offer, of Reacquired Shares), and (B) the denominator of which shall be equal to the product of (x) the Current Market Price per share of Common Stock on the date of the Expiration Time and (y) the result of (I) the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding (including any tendered or exchanged shares) on the date of the Expiration Time less (II) the number of all shares validly tendered pursuant to the tender offer or exchange offer, not withdrawn and accepted on the date of the Expiration Time (such validly tendered or exchanged shares, up to any such maximum, being referred to as the “Reacquired Shares”).
(7)    The reclassification of Common Stock into securities including securities other than Common Stock (other than any reclassification upon a Reorganization Event to which Section 5.6(b) applies) shall be deemed to involve (a) a distribution of such securities other than Common Stock to all holders of Common Stock (and the effective date of such reclassification shall be deemed to be “the date fixed for the determination of shareholders entitled to receive such distribution” and the “date fixed for such determination” within the meaning of Section 5.6(a)(4), and (b) a subdivision, split or combination, as the case may be, of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such reclassification into the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately thereafter (and the effective date of such reclassification shall be deemed to be “the day upon which such subdivision or split becomes effective” or “the day upon which such combination becomes effective”, as the case may be, and “the day upon which such subdivision, split or combination becomes effective” within the meaning of Section 5.6(a)(3).
(8)    The “Current Market Price” per share of Common Stock or any other security on any day means the average of the daily Closing Prices for the 20 consecutive Trading Days preceding the earlier of the day preceding the day in question and the day before the “ex date” with respect to the issuance or distribution requiring such computation. For purposes of this Section 5.6(a)(8), the term “ex date,” when used with respect to any issuance or distribution, shall mean the first date on which the Common Stock or other security, as applicable, trades regular way on the principal U.S. securities exchange or quotation system on which the Common Stock or such other security, as applicable, is listed or quoted at that time, without the right to receive the issuance or distribution.
(9)    Calculation of Adjustments. All adjustments to a Fixed Settlement Rate shall be calculated to the nearest 1/10,000th of a share of Common Stock. No adjustment in a Fixed Settlement Rate shall be required unless such adjustment would require an increase or decrease of at least one percent therein. Any adjustment of less than one percent which by reason of this subparagraph is not required to be made shall be made upon the end of the issuer's fiscal year; provided, however, that any adjustment which by reason of this subparagraph is not required to be made shall be carried forward and taken into account in any subsequent adjustment; and provided further, that effect shall be given to all adjustments not later than the close of business on the Business Day immediately preceding the first Trading Day in the consecutive 20 Trading Day period during which the Fixed Settlement Rate or Settlement Rate plus Make‑Whole Share Amount applicable to Fundamental Change Early Settlement are determined. If an adjustment is made to each Fixed Settlement Rate pursuant to Section 5.6(a)(1), Section 5.6(a)(2), Section 5.6(a)(3), Section 5.6(a)(4), Section 5.6(a)(5), Section 5.6(a)(6), Section 5.6(a)(7) or Section 5.6(a)(10), an adjustment shall also be made to the Applicable Market Value solely to determine which of clauses (a), (b) or (c) of the definition of Settlement Rate in Section 5.1 will apply on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date or any Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date. Such adjustment shall be made by multiplying the Applicable Market Value





by the Adjustment Factor. The “Adjustment Factor” means, initially, a fraction the numerator of which shall be the Maximum Settlement Rate immediately after the first adjustment to each Fixed Settlement Rate pursuant to this Section 5.6(a) and the denominator of which shall be the Maximum Settlement Rate immediately prior to such adjustment. Each time an adjustment is required to be made to each Fixed Settlement Rate pursuant to this Section 5.6(a), the Adjustment Factor shall be multiplied by a fraction the numerator of which shall be the Maximum Settlement Rate immediately after such adjustment to each Fixed Settlement Rate pursuant to this Section 5.6(a) and the denominator of which shall be the Maximum Settlement Rate immediately prior to such adjustment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any adjustment to each Fixed Settlement Rate is required to be made pursuant to the occurrence of any of the events contemplated by this Section 5.6(a) during the period taken into consideration for determining the Applicable Market Value, the 20 individual Closing Prices used to determine the Applicable Market Value shall be adjusted rather than the Applicable Market Value and the Applicable Market Value shall be determined by (A) multiplying the Closing Prices for Trading Days prior to such adjustment to each Fixed Settlement Rate by the Adjustment Factor in effect prior to such adjustment, (B) multiplying the Closing Prices for Trading Days following such adjustment by the Adjustment Factor reflecting such adjustment, and (C) dividing the sum of all such adjusted Closing Prices by 20.
(10)    The Company may, but shall not be required to, make such increases in the Settlement Rate, in addition to those required by this Section, as the Board of Directors considers to be advisable in order to avoid or diminish the effect of any income tax to any holders of shares of Common Stock resulting from any dividend or distribution of stock or issuance of rights or warrants to purchase or subscribe for stock or from any event treated as such for income tax purposes or for any other reasons.
(11)    If the Company hereafter adopts any shareholder rights plan involving the issuance of preferred share purchase rights or other similar rights (the “Rights”) to all holders of the Common Stock, a Holder shall be entitled to receive upon settlement of any Purchase Contract, in addition to the shares of Common Stock issuable upon settlement of such Purchase Contract, the related Rights for the Common Stock, unless such Rights under the future shareholder rights plan have separated from the Common Stock prior to the time of settlement of such Purchase Contract, in which case each Settlement Rate shall be adjusted as provided in Section 5.6(a)(4) on the date such Rights separate from the Common Stock.

(b)    Adjustment for Consolidation, Merger or Other Reorganization Event; Fundamental Change Early Settlement. (i) Subject to the provisions of Section 5.6(b)(ii), upon a Reorganization Event, each Unit shall thereafter, in lieu of a variable number of shares of Common Stock, be settled by delivery of a variable number of Exchange Property Units. An “Exchange Property Unit” represents the right to receive the kind and amount of securities, cash and other property receivable in such Reorganization Event (without any interest thereon, and without any right to dividends or distributions thereon that have a record date that is prior to the applicable settlement date) per share of Common Stock by a holder of Common Stock that is not a Person which is a party to the Reorganization Event (any such Person, a “Constituent Person”), or an Affiliate of a Constituent Person to the extent such Reorganization Event provides for different treatment of Common Stock held by Affiliates of the Company and non‑Affiliates. In the event holders of Common Stock have the opportunity to elect the form of consideration to be received in such transaction, the Exchange Property Unit that Holders of the Corporate Units or Treasury Units would have been entitled to receive will be deemed to be the weighted average of the types and amounts of consideration received by the holders of Common Stock that affirmatively make an election. The number of Exchange Property Units to be delivered upon settlement of a Purchase Contract following the effective date of a Reorganization Event shall equal the Settlement Rate, subject to adjustment as provided in this Section 5.6, determined as if the





references to “shares of Common Stock” in Section 5.1(a)(i), Section 5.1(a)(ii) and Section 5.1(a)(iii) were to “Exchange Property Units.”

In the event of such a Reorganization Event, the Person formed by such consolidation or merger or the Person which acquires the property of the Company as an entirety or substantially as an entirety by sale, transfer, lease or conveyance or the Person which shall acquire the Company pursuant to a share exchange business combination shall execute and deliver to the Purchase Contract Agent an agreement supplemental hereto providing that the Holder of each Unit that remains Outstanding after the Reorganization Event (if any) shall have the rights provided by this Section 5.6(b). Such supplemental agreement shall provide for adjustments to the amount of any securities constituting all or a portion of an Exchange Property Unit which, for events subsequent to the effective date of such Reorganization Event, shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Section 5.6. The above provisions of this Section 5.6(b) shall similarly apply to successive Reorganization Events.
(ii)    Prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, if a Fundamental Change occurs, then following such Fundamental Change a Holder of a Unit will have the right to accelerate and settle (“Fundamental Change Early Settlement”) its Purchase Contract, upon the conditions set forth below, at the Settlement Rate (determined as if the Applicable Market Value equaled the Stock Price), plus an additional make‑whole amount of shares (the “Make‑Whole Share Amount”); provided that no Fundamental Change Early Settlement will be permitted pursuant to this Section 5.6(b)(ii) unless, at the time such Fundamental Change Early Settlement is effected, there is an effective Registration Statement with respect to any securities to be issued and delivered in connection with such Fundamental Change Early Settlement, if such a Registration Statement is required (in the view of counsel for the Company, which need not be in the form of a written opinion) under the Securities Act. If such a Registration Statement is so required, the Company covenants and agrees to use its commercially reasonable efforts to (x) have in effect a Registration Statement covering any securities to be delivered in respect of the Purchase Contracts being settled and (y) provide a Prospectus in connection therewith, in each case in a form that may be used in connection with such Fundamental Change Early Settlement. In the event that a Holder seeks to exercise its Fundamental Change Early Settlement right and a Registration Statement is required to be effective in connection with the exercise of such right but no such Registration Statement is then effective, the Holder's exercise of such right shall be void unless and until such a Registration Statement shall be effective and the Company shall have no further obligation with respect to any such Registration Statement if, notwithstanding using its commercially reasonable efforts, no Registration Statement is then effective.
If a Holder elects a Fundamental Change Early Settlement of some or all of its Purchase Contracts, such Holder shall be entitled to receive, on the Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date, the aggregate amount of any accrued and unpaid Contract Adjustment Payments and any Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments, with respect to such Purchase Contracts. The Company shall pay such amount as a credit against the amount otherwise payable by such Holder to effect such Fundamental Change Early Settlement.
Within five Business Days of the Effective Date of a Fundamental Change, the Company or, at the request and expense of the Company, if such request is delivered at least two Business Days prior to the date such notice is to be given to Holders of Units (unless a shorter period shall be agreed to by the Purchase Contract Agent), the Purchase Contract Agent, shall provide written notice to Holders of Units of such completion of a Fundamental Change, which shall specify
(1)    the deadline for submitting the notice to settle early in cash pursuant to this Section 5.6(b)(ii) and how and where such notice to settle early should be delivered,





(2)     the date on which such Fundamental Change Early Settlement shall occur (which date shall be at least ten days after the date of the notice but not later than the earlier of 20 days after the date of such notice or five Business Days prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date) (the “Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date”),
(3)     the amount of cash payable in respect of the exercise of such Fundamental Change Early Settlement (giving effect to the credit for any accrued and unpaid Contract Adjustment Payments and any Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments as provided in the preceding paragraph ),
(4)     the applicable Settlement Rate,
(5)     the Make‑Whole Share Amount and
(6)     the amount (per share of Common Stock) of cash, securities and other consideration receivable by the Holder, including any amount of Contract Adjustment Payments receivable upon settlement.
The Company shall also deliver a copy of such notice to the Purchase Contract Agent and the Collateral Agent.
Corporate Unit Holders (unless Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio have replaced Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures as a component of the Corporate Units) and Treasury Unit Holders may only effect Fundamental Change Early Settlement pursuant to this Section 5.6(b)(ii) in integral multiples of 20 Corporate Units or Treasury Units, as the case may be. If Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio have replaced Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures as a component of the Corporate Units, Corporate Unit Holders may only effect Fundamental Change Early Settlement pursuant to this Section 5.6(b)(ii) in multiples of 80,000 Corporate Units (or such other number of Corporate Units as may be determined by the Remarketing Agents upon a Successful Remarketing if the Reset Effective Date is not a Payment Date). Other than the provisions relating to timing of notice and settlement, which shall be as set forth above, the provisions of Section 5.1 shall apply with respect to a Fundamental Change Early Settlement pursuant to this Section 5.6(b)(ii).
In order to exercise the right to effect Fundamental Change Early Settlement with respect to any Purchase Contracts, the Holder of the Certificate evidencing Units shall deliver to the Purchase Contract Agent at the Corporate Trust Office, no later than 4:00 p.m., New York City time, on the third Business Day immediately preceding the Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date, such Certificate duly endorsed for transfer to the Company or in blank with the form of Election to Settle Early/Fundamental Change Early Settlement on the reverse thereof duly completed and accompanied by payment (payable to the Company in immediately available funds) in an amount equal to the product of (1) the Stated Amount times (2) the number of Purchase Contracts with respect to which the Holder has elected to effect Fundamental Change Early Settlement.
Upon receipt of any such Certificate and payment of such funds, the Purchase Contract Agent shall pay the Company from such funds the related Purchase Price pursuant to the terms of the related Purchase Contracts, and notify the Collateral Agent that all the conditions necessary for a Fundamental Change Early Settlement by a Holder of Units have been satisfied pursuant to which the Purchase Contract Agent has received from such Holder, and paid to the Company as confirmed in writing by the Company, the related Purchase Price.





If a Holder properly effects a Fundamental Change Early Settlement in accordance with the provisions of this Section 5.6(b)(ii), the Company will deliver (or will cause the Collateral Agent to deliver) to the Holder on the Fundamental Change Early Settlement Date:
(A)    the kind and amount of securities, cash and other property receivable upon such Fundamental Change by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock issuable on account of each Purchase Contract if the Purchase Contract Settlement Date had occurred immediately prior to such Fundamental Change (based on the Settlement Rate in effect at such time plus the Make‑Whole Share Amount), assuming such holder of Common Stock is not a Constituent Person or an Affiliate of a Constituent Person to the extent such Fundamental Change provides for different treatment of Common Stock held by Affiliates of the Company and non‑Affiliates. In the event holders of Common Stock have the opportunity to elect the form of consideration to be received in the Fundamental Change, the kind and amount of securities, cash and/or other property receivable by Holders of the Corporate Units or Treasury Units exercising their right to effect a Fundamental Change Early Settlement will be deemed to be the weighted average of the types and amounts of consideration received by the holders of Common Stock that affirmatively make an election. For the avoidance of doubt, for the purposes of determining the Applicable Market Value (in connection with determining the appropriate Settlement Rate to be applied in the foregoing sentence), the date of the closing of the Fundamental Change shall be deemed to be the Purchase Contract Settlement Date;
(B)    the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, the Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio or the Treasury Securities, as the case may be, related to the Purchase Contracts with respect to which the Holder is effecting a Fundamental Change Early Settlement;
(C)    any accrued and unpaid Contract Adjustment Payments and any Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments (to the extent such payments are not applied as a credit to the Purchase Price in connection with the settlement of the Purchase Contracts); and
(D)    if so required under the Securities Act, a Prospectus as contemplated by this Section 5.6(b)(ii).
The Corporate Units or the Treasury Units of the Holders who do not elect Fundamental Change Early Settlement in accordance with the foregoing provisions will continue to remain Outstanding and be subject to settlement on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date in accordance with the terms hereof.
The Make‑Whole Share Amounts applicable to a Fundamental Change Early Settlement will be determined by reference to the table below, based on the date on which the Fundamental Change becomes effective (the “Effective Date”) and the price (the “Stock Price”) paid per share for Common Stock in such Fundamental Change, which will be (a) in the case of a Fundamental Change described in clause (ii) of the definition of such term and the holders of Common Stock receive only cash in such transaction, the Stock Price paid per share will be the cash amount paid per share; or (b) otherwise, the Stock Price paid per share will be the average of the Closing Prices of the Common Stock on the twenty Trading Days prior to, but not including, the Effective Date of such Fundamental Change:

The Stock Prices set forth in the first column of the table will be adjusted upon the occurrence of certain events requiring adjustments to each Fixed Settlement Rate pursuant to Section 5.6(a).
Each of the Make‑Whole Share Amounts set forth in the table will be subject to adjustment in the same manner as the Fixed Settlement Rates as set forth in Section 5.6(a).
If the Stock Price or Effective Date applicable to a Fundamental Change is not expressly set forth on the table, then the Make‑Whole Share Amount will be determined as follows:
(1)    if the Stock Price is between two Stock Price amounts on the table or the Effective Date is between two dates on the table, the Make‑Whole Share Amount will be determined by straight‑line interpolation between the Make‑Whole Share Amounts set forth for the higher and lower Stock Price amounts and the two dates, as applicable, based on a 365‑day year;
(2)    if the Stock Price is in excess of $200 per share (subject to adjustment as set forth in Section 5.6(a)), then the Make‑Whole Share Amount shall be zero; and
(3)    if the Stock Price is less than $20 per share (subject to adjustment as set forth in Section 5.6(a)) (the “Minimum Stock Price”), then the Make‑Whole Share Amount shall be determined as if the Stock Price equaled the Minimum Stock Price, using straight‑line interpolation, as described in clause (1) above, if the Effective Date is between two dates on the table.
(c) No adjustment to the Settlement Rate need be made if Holders may participate in the transaction that would otherwise give rise to an adjustment, so long as the distributed assets or securities the Holders would receive upon settlement of the Purchase Contracts, if convertible, exchangeable, or exercisable, are convertible, exchangeable or exercisable, as applicable, without any loss of rights or privileges for a period of at least 45 days following settlement of the Purchase Contracts.
(d) The Fixed Settlement Rate shall not be adjusted:





(i)upon the issuance of any shares of Common Stock pursuant to any present or future plan providing for the direct investment in Common Stock or the reinvestment of dividends or interest payable on the Company's securities and the investment of additional optional amounts in shares of Common Stock under any plan;
(ii)upon the issuance of any shares of Common Stock or options or rights to purchase shares of Common Stock pursuant to any present or future employee, director or consultant compensation or other benefit plan or program of or assumed by the Company or any of its subsidiaries;
(iii)upon the issuance of any shares of Common Stock pursuant to any option, warrant, right or any exercisable, exchangeable or convertible security outstanding as of the date the Units were first issued;
(iv)for a change in the par value or a change to no par value of the Common Stock;
(v)for accumulated and unpaid dividends, other than to the extent contemplated by Section 5.6(a) hereof; or
(vi)upon the issuance of shares of Common Stock or securities convertible into, or exercisable or exchangeable for, Common Stock, in public or private transactions, for consideration in cash or property, at any price the Company deems appropriate.
(e) All calculations and determinations pursuant to this Section 5.6 shall be made by the Company or its agent and the Purchase Contract Agent shall have no responsibility with respect to any such calculation or determination.

SECTION 5.7.    Notice of Adjustments and Certain Other Events
.
(a)    Whenever the Fixed Settlement Rates are adjusted as herein provided, the Company shall:
(i)    forthwith compute the Settlement Rate in accordance with Section 5.6 and prepare and transmit to the Purchase Contract Agent a Company Certificate setting forth the adjusted Settlement Rate, the method of calculation thereof in reasonable detail, and the facts requiring such adjustment and upon which such adjustment is based; and
(ii)    within 10 Business Days following the occurrence of an event that requires an adjustment to the Settlement Rate pursuant to Section 5.6 (or if the Company is not aware of such occurrence, as soon as practicable after becoming so aware), provide a written notice to the Holders of the Units of the occurrence of such event and a statement in reasonable detail setting forth the method by which the adjustment to the Settlement Rate was determined and setting forth the adjusted Settlement Rate.
(b)    The Purchase Contract Agent shall not at any time be under any duty or responsibility to any Holder of Units to determine whether any facts exist which may require any adjustment of the Settlement Rate, or with respect to the nature or extent or calculation of any such adjustment when made, or with respect to the method employed in making the same. The Purchase Contract Agent shall not be accountable with respect to the validity or value (or the kind or amount) of any shares of Common Stock, or of any securities or property,





which may at the time be issued or delivered with respect to any Purchase Contract, and the Purchase Contract Agent makes no representation with respect thereto. The Purchase Contract Agent shall not be responsible for any failure of the Company to issue, transfer or deliver any shares of Common Stock or other securities or property pursuant to a Purchase Contract or to comply with any of the duties, responsibilities or covenants of the Company contained in this Article 5.5.
SECTION 5.8.    Termination Event; Notice
.
The Purchase Contracts and all obligations and rights of the Company and the Holders thereunder, including, without limitation, the rights of the Holders to receive and the obligation of the Company to pay any Contract Adjustment Payments or any Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments, and the rights and obligations of the Holders to purchase shares of Common Stock, will immediately and automatically terminate, without the necessity of any notice or action by any Holder, the Purchase Contract Agent or the Company, if, on or prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, a Termination Event shall have occurred. Upon the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Company shall promptly but in no event later than two Business Days thereafter give written notice thereof to the Purchase Contract Agent, the Collateral Agent, and to the Holders at their addresses as they appear in the Security Register. Upon and after the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Units shall thereafter represent the right to receive the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, forming a part of such Units in the case of Corporate Units, or Treasury Securities in the case of Treasury Units, in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.3 of the Pledge Agreement.
SECTION 5.9.    Early Settlement
.
(a)    A holder of Corporate Units may settle the related Purchase Contracts in their entirety at any time on or prior to the seventh Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, in the manner described herein, but only in integral multiples of 20 Corporate Units; provided, however that a Holder of Corporate Units will not be permitted to settle the related Purchase Contracts during any period commencing on and including the Business Day preceding the first of the three sequential Remarketing Dates comprising any Three‑Day Remarketing Period, and ending on and including, in the case of a Successful Remarketing during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period, the Reset Effective Date, or if none of the Remarketings during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period is successful, the Business Day following the last of the three sequential Remarketing Dates occurring during such Three‑Day Remarketing Period; provided, further, if the Treasury Portfolio has become a component of the Corporate Units, Holders of Corporate Units may settle early only in integral multiples of 80,000 Corporate Units at any time on or prior to the second Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date (or such other number of Corporate Units as may be determined by the Remarketing Agents upon a Successful Remarketing of the Debentures if the Reset Effective Date is not a regular quarterly interest payment date). A holder of Treasury Units may settle the related Purchase Contracts in their entirety at any time on or prior to the second Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date in the manner described herein (an “Early Settlement”) but only in integral multiples of 20 Treasury Units. The right to Early Settlement is subject to there being in effect a Registration Statement covering the shares of Common Stock to be issued and delivered in respect of the Purchase Contracts being settled, if such a Registration Statement is required (in the view of counsel for the Company, which need not be in the form of a written opinion) under the Securities Act. If such a Registration Statement is so required, the Company covenants and agrees to use its commercially reasonable efforts to (x) have in effect a Registration Statement covering any securities to be delivered in respect of the Purchase Contracts being settled and (y) provide a Prospectus in connection therewith, in each





case in a form that may be used in connection with such Early Settlement. In the event that a Holder seeks to exercise its Early Settlement right and a Registration Statement is required to be effective in connection with the exercise of such right but no such Registration Statement is then effective, the Holder's exercise of such right shall be void unless and until such a Registration Statement shall be effective and the Company shall have no further obligation with respect to any such Registration Statement if, notwithstanding using its commercially reasonable efforts, no Registration Statement is then effective. Upon Early Settlement, (i) the Holder's right to receive additional Contract Adjustment Payments in respect of such Purchase Contracts will terminate and (ii) no adjustment will be made to or for the Holder on account of Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments, or any amount accrued in respect of Contract Adjustment Payments. In order to exercise the right to effect any Early Settlement with respect to any Purchase Contracts, the Holder of the Certificate evidencing Units shall deliver such Certificate to the Purchase Contract Agent at the Corporate Trust Office duly endorsed for transfer to the Company or in blank with the form of Election to Settle Early/Fundamental Change Early Settlement on the reverse thereof duly completed and executed and accompanied by payment (payable to the Company in immediately available funds in an amount (the “Early Settlement Amount”) equal to the sum of
(i)the product of (A) the Stated Amount times (B) the number of Purchase Contracts with respect to which the Holder has elected to effect Early Settlement, plus
(ii)if such delivery is made with respect to any Purchase Contracts during the period from the close of business on any Record Date relating to any Payment Date to the opening of business on such Payment Date, an amount equal to the Contract Adjustment Payments payable, if any, on such Payment Date with respect to such Purchase Contracts; provided that no payment is required if the Company has elected to defer the Contract Adjustment Payments which would otherwise be payable on the Payment Date.

Except as provided in the immediately preceding sentence and subject to Section 5.2(d), no payment or adjustment shall be made upon Early Settlement of any Purchase Contract on account of any Contract Adjustment Payments accrued on such Purchase Contract or on account of any dividends on the Common Stock. In order for any of the foregoing requirements to be considered satisfied or effective with respect to a Purchase Contract underlying any Unit on or by a particular Business Day, such requirement must be met at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on such Business Day; the first Business Day on which all of the foregoing requirements have been satisfied by 5:00 p.m., New York City time shall be the “Early Settlement Date” with respect to such Unit. Upon Early Settlement of the Purchase Contracts, the rights of the Holders to receive and the obligation of the Company to pay any Contract Adjustment Payments (including any accrued and unpaid Contract Adjustment Payments) with respect to such Purchase Contracts shall immediately and automatically terminate, except that the Holders will receive any accrued and unpaid Contract Adjustment Payments if the Early Settlement Date falls after a Record Date relating to any Payment Date and prior to the opening of business on such Payment Date.
(b)    Upon Early Settlement of Purchase Contracts by a Holder of the related Units, the Company shall issue, and the Holder shall be entitled to receive, a number of newly‑issued shares of Common Stock (or in the case of an Early Settlement following a Reorganization Event, a number of Exchange Property Units) equal to the Minimum Settlement Rate for each Purchase Contract as to which Early Settlement is effected.
(c)    No later than the third Business Day after the applicable Early Settlement Date the Company shall cause (i) the shares of Common Stock issuable upon Early Settlement of Purchase Contracts to be issued and a certificate or certificates for the full number of such shares of Common Stock together with payment in lieu of any fraction of a share, as provided in Section 5.10 to be delivered to the Purchase Contract Agent at the Corporate Trust Office, and (ii) the related Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures





or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, in the case of Corporate Units, or the related Treasury Securities, in the case of Treasury Units, to be released from the Pledge by the Collateral Agent and transferred, in each case, to the Purchase Contract Agent for delivery to the Holder thereof or its designee.
(d)    Upon Early Settlement of any Purchase Contracts, and subject to receipt of shares of Common Stock from the Company and the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio or Treasury Securities, as the case may be, from the Collateral Agent, as applicable, the Purchase Contract Agent shall, in accordance with the instructions provided by the Holder of such Purchase Contracts on the applicable form of Election to Settle Early/Fundamental Change Early Settlement on the reverse of the Certificate evidencing the related Units, (i) transfer to the Holder the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio or the Treasury Securities, as the case may be, forming a part of the related Units, and (ii) deliver to the Holder a certificate or certificates for the full number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon such Early Settlement together with payment in lieu of any fraction of a share, as provided in Section 5.10.
(e)    In the event that Early Settlement is effected with respect to Purchase Contracts underlying less than all the Units evidenced by a Certificate, upon such Early Settlement the Company shall execute and the Purchase Contract Agent shall authenticate, countersign and deliver to the Holder thereof, at the expense of the Company, a Certificate evidencing the Units as to which Early Settlement was not effected.

SECTION 5.10.    No Fractional Shares
.
No fractional shares or scrip representing fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issued or delivered upon settlement on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date or upon Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement of any Purchase Contracts. If Certificates evidencing more than one Purchase Contract shall be surrendered for settlement at one time by the same Holder, the number of full shares of Common Stock which shall be delivered upon settlement shall be computed on the basis of the aggregate number of Purchase Contracts evidenced by the Certificates so surrendered. Instead of any fractional share of Common Stock which would otherwise be deliverable upon settlement of any Purchase Contracts on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date or upon Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement, the Company, through the Purchase Contract Agent, shall make a cash payment in respect of such fractional interest in an amount equal to such fractional share times the (i) the Threshold Appreciation Price, in the case of an Early Settlement or (ii) the Applicable Market Value calculated as if the date of such settlement were the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, in all other circumstances. The Company shall provide the Purchase Contract Agent from time to time with sufficient funds to permit the Purchase Contract Agent to make all cash payments required by this Section 5.10 in a timely manner.
SECTION 5.11.    Charges and Taxes
.
The Company will pay all stock transfer and similar taxes attributable to the initial issuance and delivery of the shares of Common Stock pursuant to the Purchase Contracts; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to pay any such tax or taxes which may be payable in respect of any exchange of or substitution for a Certificate evidencing a Unit or any issuance of a share of Common Stock in a name other than that of the registered Holder of a Certificate surrendered in respect of the Units evidenced thereby, other than in the name of the Purchase Contract Agent, as custodian for such Holder, and the Company shall not be required to issue or deliver such Common Stock share certificates or Certificates unless or until the Person or Persons requesting the transfer or issuance thereof shall have paid to the Company the amount of





such tax or shall have established to the satisfaction of the Company that such tax has been paid or that no such tax is due.

This is one of the Corporate Unit Certificates referred to in the within mentioned Purchase Contract Agreement.
Dated:
THE BANK OF NEW YORK MELLON,
as Purchase Contract Agent
 
By:
Authorized Signatory







(Form of Reverse of Corporate Unit Certificate)
Unless the context otherwise requires, each provision of this Unit shall be part of the Purchase Contract evidenced hereby. This Unit and each Purchase Contract evidenced hereby is governed by a Purchase Contract Agreement, dated as of September 1, 2012 (as may be supplemented from time to time, the “Purchase Contract Agreement”), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon, as purchase contract agent (including any successor thereunder, herein called the “Purchase Contract Agent”), to which the Purchase Contract Agreement and supplemental agreements thereto reference is hereby made for a description of the respective rights, limitations of rights, obligations, duties and immunities thereunder of the Purchase Contract Agent, the Company, and the Holders and of the terms upon which the Corporate Unit Certificates are, and are to be, executed and delivered.
Each Purchase Contract evidenced hereby, which is settled either through Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement, shall obligate the Holder of the related Corporate Units to purchase at the applicable Purchase Price, and the Company to sell, a number of newly‑issued shares of Common Stock equal to the Early Settlement Rate or the applicable Settlement Rate, as applicable.
The “Applicable Market Value” means the average of the Closing Price per share of Common Stock on each Trading Day during the Observation Period; provided, however, that if the Company enters into a Reorganization Event, the Applicable Market Value will mean the value of an Exchange Property Unit. Following the occurrence of any such Reorganization Event, references herein to the purchase or issuance of shares of Common Stock shall be construed to be references to settlement into Exchange Property Units. For purposes of calculating the value of an Exchange Property Unit, (x) the value of any common stock included in the Exchange Property Unit shall be determined using the average of the Closing Price per share of such common stock on each Trading Day during the Observation Period (only if such common stock has traded on any Trading Day during the Observation Period) (adjusted as set forth under Section 5.6 of the Purchase Contract Agreement) and (y) the value of any other property, including securities other than common stock included in the Exchange Property Unit, shall be the value of such property on the first Trading Day of the Observation Period (as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors, whose determination shall be conclusive and described in a Board Resolution). The “Closing Price” of the Common Stock on any date of determination means the closing sale price (or, if no closing price is reported, the last reported sale price) of the Common Stock on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) on such date or, if the Common Stock is not listed for trading on the NYSE on any such date, as reported in the composite transactions for the principal United States securities exchange on which the Common Stock is so listed, or if the Common Stock is not so reported, the last quoted bid price for the Common Stock in the over‑the‑counter market as reported by the OTC Markets Group Inc. or similar organization, or, if such bid price is not available, the market value of the Common Stock on such date as determined by a nationally recognized independent investment banking firm retained by the Company for this purpose. A “Trading Day” means a day on which the Common Stock (A) is not suspended from trading on any national or regional securities exchange or over‑the‑counter market at the close of business and (B) has traded at least once on the national or regional securities exchange or over‑the‑counter market that is the primary market for the trading of the Common Stock at the close of business. If the Common Stock is not traded on a securities exchange or quoted in the over‑the‑counter market, then “Trading Day” shall mean Business Day.
In accordance with the terms of the Purchase Contract Agreement, the Holder of the Corporate Units evidenced hereby shall pay, on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the Purchase Price for the shares of Common Stock purchased pursuant to each Purchase Contract evidenced hereby by effecting a Cash Settlement. A Holder of Corporate Units who does not make such payment in accordance with the Purchase





Contract Agreement or who does not notify the Purchase Contract Agent of such Holder's intention, at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the seventh Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, to make an effective Cash Settlement or an Early Settlement, such Holder shall be deemed to have consented to the disposition of the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures pursuant to the Remarketing during the Final Three Day Remarketing Period described in the Purchase Contract Agreement.
If there is no Successful Remarketing during the Period for Early Remarketing and if all the Remarketings during the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period result in Failed Remarketings, each Corporate Unit Holder of Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures (as to which the related Purchase Contract has not been settled with cash) shall be deemed to have exercised its Put Right with respect to its Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures, and to have elected that a portion of the Put Price equal to the principal amount of the relevant Debenture underlying such Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures be applied against such Corporate Unit Holder's obligations to pay the Purchase Price for the Common Stock issued in accordance with each related Purchase Contract on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, in accordance with the terms of the Pledge Agreement.
The Company shall not be obligated to issue any shares of Common Stock in respect of a Purchase Contract or deliver any certificates therefor to the Holder unless it shall have received payment in full of the Purchase Price for the shares of Common Stock to be purchased thereunder in the manner set forth in the Purchase Contract Agreement.
Under and subject to the terms of the Pledge Agreement and the Purchase Contract Agreement, the Purchase Contract Agent will be entitled to exercise the voting and any other consensual rights pertaining to the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures but only to the extent instructed by the Holders as described below in this paragraph. Upon receipt of notice of any meeting at which holders of Debentures are entitled to vote or upon the solicitation of consents, waivers or proxies of holders of Debentures, the Purchase Contract Agent shall, as soon as practicable thereafter, mail to the Holders of Corporate Units a notice (a) containing such information as is contained in the notice or solicitation, (b) stating that each Corporate Unit Holder on the record date set by the Purchase Contract Agent therefor (which, to the extent possible, shall be the same date as the record date for determining the holders of Debentures entitled to vote) shall be entitled to instruct the Purchase Contract Agent as to the exercise of the voting rights pertaining to the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures constituting a part of such Holder's Corporate Units and (c) stating the manner in which such instructions may be given. Upon the written request of the Holders of Corporate Units on such record date, the Purchase Contract Agent shall endeavor insofar as practicable to vote or cause to be voted, in accordance with the instructions set forth in such requests, the maximum number of Debentures as to which any particular voting instructions are received. In the absence of specific instructions from the Holder of Corporate Units, the Purchase Contract Agent shall abstain from voting the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures constituting a part of such Corporate Units.
Upon the occurrence of (i) a Mandatory Redemption where the related Purchase Contracts have not been previously or concurrently terminated in accordance with Section 5.8 of the Purchase Contract Agreement or (ii) a Special Event Redemption, in each case, prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the Redemption Price equal to the Redemption Amount together with any accrued and unpaid interest payable on the Mandatory Redemption Date or the Special Event Redemption Date, as the case may be, with respect to the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures shall be delivered to the Collateral Agent in exchange for the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures. Pursuant to the terms of the Pledge Agreement, the Collateral Agent will apply an amount equal to the Redemption Amount to purchase, on behalf of the Holders of Corporate Units the Treasury Portfolio and promptly remit the remaining portion of such Redemption Price, if any, to the Purchase Contract Agent for payment to the Holders of such Corporate Units.





The Treasury Portfolio will be substituted for the Pledged Applicable Ownership in Debentures, and will be held by the Collateral Agent in accordance with the terms of the Pledge Agreement to secure the obligation of each Holder of a Corporate Unit to purchase the Common Stock on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date under the Purchase Contract constituting a part of such Corporate Unit. Following the occurrence of a Mandatory Redemption or a Special Event Redemption prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date the Holders of Corporate Units and the Collateral Agent shall have such security interests, rights and obligations with respect to the Treasury Portfolio as the Holder of Corporate Units and the Collateral Agent had in respect of the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, subject to the Pledge thereof as provided in Article II, Article III, Article IV, Article V, and Article VI of the Pledge Agreement and any reference herein to the Debentures shall be deemed to be reference to such Treasury Portfolio. The Company may cause to be made in any Corporate Unit Certificate therewith to be issued such change in phraseology and form (but not in substance) as may be appropriate to reflect the substitution of the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio for the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures as Collateral.
The Corporate Unit Certificates are issuable only in registered form and only in denominations of a single Corporate Unit and any integral multiple thereof. The transfer of any Corporate Unit Certificate will be registered and Corporate Unit Certificates may be exchanged as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement. The Security Registrar may require a Holder, among other things, to furnish endorsements and transfer documents permitted by the Purchase Contract Agreement. No service charge shall be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Company and the Purchase Contract Agent may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith. A Holder who elects to substitute Treasury Securities for the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, thereby creating Treasury Units, shall be responsible for any fees or expenses payable in connection therewith. Except as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement, for so long as the Purchase Contract underlying a Corporate Unit remains in effect, such Corporate Unit shall not be separable into its constituent parts, and the rights and obligations of the Holder of such Corporate Unit in respect of the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, and the Purchase Contract comprising such Corporate Unit may be acquired, and may be transferred and exchanged only as an entire Corporate Unit. The holder of any Corporate Units may substitute for the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio (as specified in clause (i) of the definition of such term) securing its obligation under the related Purchase Contract, Treasury Securities in an aggregate principal amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures or Stated Amount of the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Contract Agreement and the Pledge Agreement. From and after such Collateral Substitution, the Unit for which such Pledged Treasury Security secures the Holder's obligation under the Purchase Contract shall be referred to as a “Treasury Unit.” A Holder may make such Collateral Substitution only in integral multiples of 20 Corporate Units for 20 Treasury Units; provided, however, that if a Special Event Redemption or a Mandatory Redemption or a Successful Early Remarketing has occurred and the Treasury Portfolio has become a component of the Corporate Units, a Holder may make such Collateral Substitutions only in integral multiples of 80,000 Corporate Units for 80,000 Treasury Units (or such other number of Treasury Units as may be determined by the Remarketing Agents in connection with a Successful Remarketing of the Debentures if the Reset Effective Date is not a Payment Date).
A Holder of Treasury Units may create or recreate Corporate Units by depositing with the Collateral Agent the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, with a Stated Amount, in the case of such Debentures, or with the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio (as specified in clause (i) of the definition of such term), in the case of such Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, equal to the aggregate principal amount





of the Pledged Treasury Securities in exchange for the release of such Pledged Treasury Units in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Contract Agreement and the Pledge Agreement.
Subject to the next succeeding paragraph, the Company shall pay, on each Payment Date the Contract Adjustment Payments payable in respect of each Purchase Contract to the Person in whose name the Corporate Unit Certificate evidencing such Purchase Contract is registered on the Security Register at the close of business on the Record Date relating to such Payment Date. The Contract Adjustment Payments will be payable at the Corporate Trust Office or, at the option of the Company, by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto at such address as it appears on the Security Register or by wire transfer to an account appropriately designated in writing by such person.
The Company shall have the right, at any time prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, to defer the payment of any or all of the Contract Adjustment Payments otherwise payable on any Payment Date to any subsequent Payment Date, but only if the Company shall give the Holders and the Purchase Contract Agent written notice of its election to defer such payment (specifying the amount to be deferred and the expected Deferral Period) as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement. Any Contract Adjustment Payments so deferred shall bear additional Contract Adjustment Payments thereon at the rate of 5.889% per annum (computed on the basis of a 360‑day year consisting of twelve 30‑day months), compounding on each succeeding Payment Date, until paid in full (such deferred installments of Contract Adjustment Payments, if any, together with the additional Contract Adjustment Payments accrued thereon, are referred to herein as the “Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments”). Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments, if any, shall be due on the next succeeding Payment Date except to the extent that payment is deferred pursuant to the Purchase Contract Agreement. No Contract Adjustment Payments may be deferred to a date that is after the Purchase Contract Settlement Date.
In the event the Company exercises its option to defer the payment of Contract Adjustment Payments, then, until the Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments have been paid, the Company shall not declare or pay dividends on, make distributions with respect to, or redeem, purchase or acquire, or make a liquidation payment with respect to, any of its capital stock or make guarantee payments with respect to the foregoing other than:
(i) purchases, redemptions or acquisitions of shares of capital stock of the Company in connection with any employment contract, benefit plan or other similar arrangement with or for the benefit of employees, officers, directors or agents or a stock purchase or dividend reinvestment plan, or the satisfaction by the Company of its obligations pursuant to any contract or security outstanding on the date that payment of Contract Adjustment Payments are deferred requiring the Company to purchase, redeem or acquire its capital stock,
(ii) as a result of a reclassification of the Company's capital stock or the exchange or conversion of all or a portion of one class or series of the Company's capital stock for another class or series of the Company's capital stock,
(iii) the purchase of fractional interests in shares of the Company's capital stock pursuant to the conversion or exchange provisions of the Company's capital stock or the security being converted or exchanged, or in connection with the settlement of stock purchase contracts,
(iv) dividends or distributions paid or made in capital stock of the Company (or rights to acquire capital stock), or repurchases, redemptions or acquisitions of capital stock in connection with the issuance or exchange of capital stock (or securities convertible into or exchangeable for shares of the Company's capital stock and distributions in connection with the settlement of stock purchase contracts) or





(v) redemptions, exchanges or repurchases of any rights outstanding under a shareholder rights plan or the declaration or payment thereunder of a dividend or distribution of or with respect to rights in the future.
The Purchase Contracts and all obligations and rights of the Company and the Holders thereunder, including, without limitation, the rights of the Holders to receive and the obligation of the Company to pay any Contract Adjustment Payments or any Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments, and the rights and obligations of the Holders to purchase shares of Common Stock will immediately and automatically terminate, without the necessity of any notice or action by any Holder, the Purchase Contract Agent or the Company, if, on or prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, a Termination Event shall have occurred. Upon the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Company shall promptly but in no event later than two Business Days thereafter give written notice to the Purchase Contract Agent, the Collateral Agent and to the Holders at their addresses as they appear in the Security Register. Upon and after the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Collateral Agent shall release the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, forming a part of the Corporate Units evidenced hereby from the Pledge in accordance with the provisions of the Pledge Agreement.
Subject to and upon compliance with the provisions of the Purchase Contract Agreement, a Holder of Corporate Units may settle the related Purchase Contracts in their entirety at any time on or prior to the second Business Day immediately preceding the first day of the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period in the manner described herein, but only in integral multiples of 20 Corporate Units; provided, however, if the Treasury Portfolio has become a component of the Corporate Units, Holders of Corporate Units may settle early only in integral multiples of 80,000 Corporate Units at any time on or prior to the second Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date (or such other number of Corporate Units as may be determined by the Remarketing Agents in connection with a Successful Remarketing of the Debentures if the Reset Effective Date is not a Payment Date). In order to exercise the right to effect any such early settlement (“Early Settlement”) with respect to any Purchase Contracts evidenced by this Corporate Unit Certificate, the Holder of this Corporate Unit Certificate shall deliver this Corporate Unit Certificate to the Purchase Contract Agent at the Corporate Trust Office duly endorsed for transfer to the Company or in blank with the form of Election to Settle Early/Fundamental Change Early Settlement set forth below duly completed and executed and accompanied by payment (payable to the Company in immediately available funds in an amount (the “Early Settlement Amount”) equal to the sum of (i) $50 times the number of Purchase Contracts being settled, plus (ii) if such delivery is made with respect to any Purchase Contracts during the period from the close of business on any Record Date relating to any Payment Date to the opening of business on such Payment Date, an amount equal to the Contract Adjustment Payments payable, if any, on such Payment Date with respect to such Purchase Contracts; provided that no payment is required if the Company has elected to defer the Contract Adjustment Payments which would otherwise be payable on the Payment Date. Upon Early Settlement of Purchase Contracts by a Holder of the related Corporate Units, the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures or the Pledged Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio underlying such Corporate Units shall be released from the Pledge as provided in the Pledge Agreement and the Holder shall be entitled to receive a number of shares of Common Stock on account of each Purchase Contract forming part of a Corporate Unit as to which Early Settlement is effected equal to the Minimum Settlement Rate; provided however, that upon the Early Settlement of the Purchase Contracts, (i) the Holder's right to receive additional Contract Adjustment Payments in respect of such Purchase Contracts will terminate, and (ii) no adjustment will be made to or for the Holder on account of Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments, or any amount accrued in respect of Contract Adjustment Payments. The Early Settlement Rate shall be adjusted in the same manner and at the same time as the Settlement Rate is adjusted as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement.





Upon registration of transfer of this Corporate Unit Certificate, the transferee shall be bound (without the necessity of any other action on the part of such transferee, except as may be required by the Purchase Contract Agent pursuant to the Purchase Contract Agreement), under the terms of the Purchase Contract Agreement, the Purchase Contracts evidenced hereby and the Pledge Agreement and the transferor shall be released from the obligations under the Purchase Contracts evidenced by this Corporate Unit Certificate. The Company covenants and agrees, and the Holder, by its acceptance hereof, likewise covenants and agrees, to be bound by the provisions of this paragraph.

The Holder, by its acceptance hereof, further covenants and agrees, that, to the extent and in the manner provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement and the Pledge Agreement, but subject to the terms thereof, payments in respect of the principal and interest of the Debentures underlying the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures, or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio (as specified in clause (i) of the definition of such term), on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date shall be paid by the Collateral Agent to the Company in satisfaction of such Holder's obligations under such Purchase Contract and such Holder shall acquire no right, title or interest in such payments.
The Holder of this Corporate Unit Certificate, by its acceptance hereof, covenants and agrees to treat itself as the owner, for Federal, State and local income and franchise tax purposes, of the related Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio forming part of the Corporate Units evidenced hereby. The Holder of this Corporate Unit Certificate, by its acceptance hereof, further covenants and agrees to treat the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures forming a component of the Corporate Units evidenced hereby as indebtedness of NextEra Energy Capital Holdings, Inc., a Florida corporation (“NEE Capital”), for Federal, State and local income and franchise tax purposes.
The Holder of this Corporate Unit Certificate (and the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures underlying Corporate Units of such Holder represented by this Corporate Units Certificate), by its acceptance hereof, will be deemed to have represented and warranted that either:
(a)    the Holder is not purchasing the Corporate Units (and the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures, underlying such Corporate Units) with, or on behalf of, the assets of any Plan; or

(b)    (i) the Plan will receive no less and pay no more than “adequate consideration” (within the meaning of Section 408(b)(17) of ERISA and Section 4975(d)(20) of the Code) in connection with the purchase, holding and disposition of the Corporate Units (and the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures underlying such Corporate Units),

(ii) the purchase, holding and disposition of the Corporate Units (and the Applicable

(iii) neither the Company, NEE Capital nor any of their affiliates exercised any discretionary authority or discretionary control respecting the purchase, holding and disposition of the Corporate Units (and the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures underlying such Corporate Units) and neither the Company, NEE Capital nor any of their affiliates provided advice that has formed the primary basis for the decision to purchase, hold or dispose of the Corporate Units (and the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures underlying such Corporate Units) and
(iv) the Holder hereby directs the Company, NEE Capital, the Purchase Contract Agent, the Collateral Agent and the Remarketing Agents to take the actions set forth in the Purchase Contract Agreement, the Pledge Agreement, the Officer's Certificate and the Remarketing Agreement to be taken by such parties.
Subject to certain exceptions, the provisions of the Purchase Contract Agreement may be amended with the consent of the Holders of a majority of the Purchase Contracts. In addition, certain amendments to the Purchase Contract Agreement may be made without any consent of the Holders as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement.
THE PURCHASE CONTRACTS SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES THEREUNDER, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT THAT THE LAWS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION SHALL BE MANDATORILY APPLICABLE.
Prior to due presentment of a Certificate for registration of transfer, the Company, NEE Capital and the Purchase Contract Agent, and any agent of the Company, NEE Capital or the Purchase Contract Agent, may treat the Person in whose name this Corporate Unit Certificate is registered on the Security Register as the owner of the Corporate Units evidenced hereby for the purpose of (subject to any applicable record date) any payment or distribution with respect to the Applicable Ownership Interests in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interests in the Treasury Portfolio (as specified in clause (ii) of the definition of Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio), as applicable, payment of Contract Adjustment Payments and performance of the Purchase Contracts and for all other purposes whatsoever, in connection with such Corporate Units, whether or not payment, distribution or performance shall be overdue and notwithstanding any notice to the contrary, and neither the Company, NEE Capital nor the Purchase Contract Agent, nor any agent of the Company, NEE Capital or the Purchase Contract Agent, shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

This Treasury Unit Certificate certifies that ___________ is the registered Holder of the number of Treasury Units set forth above [for inclusion in Global Certificates only - or such other number of Treasury Units reflected in the Schedule of Increases or Decreases in Global Certificate attached hereto], which number shall not exceed________. Each Treasury Unit represents (a) the ownership by the Holder thereof of a 5% undivided beneficial interest in a Treasury Security, subject to the Pledge of such interest by such Holder pursuant to the Pledge Agreement, and (b) the rights and obligations of the Holder thereof and of NextEra Energy, Inc., a Florida corporation (the “Company”), under one Purchase Contract. All capitalized terms





used herein without definition herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Purchase Contract Agreement referred to below.
Pursuant to the Pledge Agreement, the ownership interest in a Treasury Security constituting part of each Treasury Unit evidenced hereby has been pledged to the Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the Company, to secure the obligations of the Holder under the Purchase Contract comprising a part of such Treasury Unit.
The Pledge Agreement provides that all payments of the principal of any Treasury Securities received by the Collateral Agent shall be paid by the Collateral Agent by wire transfer in same day funds (i) in the case of any principal payments with respect to any Pledged Treasury Securities that have been released from the Pledge pursuant to the Pledge Agreement, to the Holders of the applicable Treasury Units, to the accounts designated by them in writing for such purpose no later than 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on the Business Day such payment is received by the Collateral Agent (provided that in the event such payment is received by the Collateral Agent on a day that is not a Business Day or after 12:30 p.m., New York City time, on a Business Day, then such payment shall be made no later than 10:30 a.m., New York City time, on the next succeeding Business Day) and (ii) in the case of payments of the principal of any Pledged Treasury Securities, to the Company on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date (as defined herein) in accordance with the terms of the Pledge Agreement, in full satisfaction of the respective obligations of the Holders of the Treasury Units under the related Purchase Contracts.
Each Purchase Contract evidenced hereby obligates the Holder of this Treasury Unit Certificate to purchase, and the Company to sell, not later than September 1, 2015 (the “Purchase Contract Settlement Date”), at a price of $50 in cash (the “Purchase Price”), a number of newly issued shares of Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company (“Common Stock”) equal to the applicable Settlement Rate (as defined below), unless on or prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date there shall have occurred a Termination Event, an Early Settlement or a Fundamental Change Early Settlement with respect to the Treasury Units of which such Purchase Contract is a part, all as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement and more fully described on the reverse hereof.
The “Settlement Rate” is equal to (a) if the Applicable Market Value (as defined below) is equal to or greater than $80.58 (the “Threshold Appreciation Price”), 0.6205 shares of Common Stock per Purchase Contract (the “Minimum Settlement Rate”), (b) if the Applicable Market Value is less than the Threshold Appreciation Price, but is greater than $67.15 (the “Reference Price”), the number of shares of Common Stock per Purchase Contract having a value equal to $50.00 divided by the Applicable Market Value, and (c) if the Applicable Market Value is less than or equal to the Reference Price, 0.7446 shares of Common Stock per Purchase Contract (the “Maximum Settlement Rate”), in each case subject to adjustment as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement. No fractional shares of Common Stock will be issued upon settlement of Purchase Contracts, as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement.
The Company shall pay on each Payment Date in respect of each Purchase Contract forming part of a Treasury Unit evidenced hereby, an amount (the “Contract Adjustment Payments”) equal to 4.289% per annum of the Stated Amount; computed on the basis of a 360‑day year consisting of twelve 30‑day months, subject to deferral at the option of the Company as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement and more fully described on the reverse hereof. Such Contract Adjustment Payments shall be payable to the Person in whose name this Treasury Unit Certificate (or a Predecessor Treasury Unit Certificate or a Predecessor Corporate Unit Certificate) is registered on the Security Register at the close of business on the Record Date relating to such Payment Date.
Contract Adjustment Payments will be payable at the Corporate Trust Office or, at the option of the Company, by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto at such Person's address as it appears





on the Security Register or by wire transfer to an account appropriately designated in writing by the Person entitled to payment.

(Form of Reverse of Treasury Unit Certificate)
Unless the context otherwise requires, each provision of this Unit shall be part of the Purchase Contract evidenced hereby. This Unit and each Purchase Contract evidenced hereby is governed by a Purchase Contract Agreement, dated as of September 1, 2012 (as may be supplemented from time to time, the “Purchase Contract Agreement”), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon, as purchase contract agent (including any successor thereunder, herein called the “Purchase Contract Agent”), to which the Purchase Contract Agreement and supplemental agreements thereto reference is hereby made for a description of the respective rights, limitations of rights, obligations, duties and immunities thereunder of the Purchase Contract Agent, the Company, and the Holders and of the terms upon which the Treasury Unit Certificates are, and are to be, executed and delivered.
Each Purchase Contract evidenced hereby, which is settled either through Early Settlement or Fundamental Change Early Settlement, shall obligate the Holder of the related Treasury Units to purchase at the applicable Purchase Price, and the Company to sell, a number of newly‑issued shares of Common Stock equal to the Early Settlement Rate or the applicable Settlement Rate, as applicable.
The “Applicable Market Value” means the average of the Closing Price per share of Common Stock on each Trading Day during the Observation Period; provided, however, that if the Company enters into a Reorganization Event, the Applicable Market Value will mean the value of an Exchange Property Unit. Following the occurrence of any such Reorganization Event, references herein to the purchase or issuance of shares of Common Stock shall be construed to be references to settlement into Exchange Property Units. For purposes of calculating the value of an Exchange Property Unit, (x) the value of any common stock included in the Exchange Property Unit shall be determined using the average of the Closing Price per share of such common stock on each Trading Day during the Observation Period (only if such common stock has traded on any Trading Day during the Observation Period) (adjusted as set forth under Section 5.6 of the Purchase Contract Agreement) and (y) the value of any other property, including securities other than common stock included in the Exchange Property Unit, shall be the value of such property on the first Trading Day of the Observation Period (as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors, whose determination shall be conclusive and described in a Board Resolution). The “Closing Price” of the Common Stock on any date of determination means the closing sale price (or, if no closing price is reported, the last reported sale price) of the Common Stock on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) on such date or, if the Common Stock is not listed for trading on the NYSE on any such date, as reported in the composite transactions for the principal United States securities exchange on which the Common Stock is so listed, or if the Common Stock is not so reported, the last quoted bid price for the Common Stock in the over‑the‑counter market as reported by the OTC Markets Group Inc. or similar organization, or, if such bid price is not available, the market value of the Common Stock on such date as determined by a nationally recognized independent investment banking firm retained by the Company for this purpose. A “Trading Day” means a day on which the Common Stock (A) is not suspended from trading on any national or regional securities exchange or over‑the‑counter market at the close of business and (B) has traded at least once on the national or regional securities exchange or over‑the‑counter market that is the primary market for the trading of the Common Stock at the close of business. If the Common Stock is not traded on a securities exchange or quoted in the over‑the‑counter market, then “Trading Day” shall mean Business Day.
In accordance with the terms of the Purchase Contract Agreement, the Holder of the Treasury Units evidenced hereby shall pay, on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the Purchase Price for the shares of Common Stock purchased pursuant to each Purchase Contract evidenced hereby by effecting a Cash Settlement. A Holder of Treasury Units who does not make such payment in accordance with the Purchase





Contract Agreement or who does not notify the Purchase Contract Agent of such Holder's intention at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the seventh Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, to make an effective Cash Settlement or an Early Settlement, shall have defaulted in its obligations under the related Purchase Contract. If a Holder of Treasury Units fails to notify the Purchase Contract Agent of such Holder's intention to effect a Cash Settlement in accordance with the Purchase Contract Agreement such failure shall constitute a default under the related Purchase Contract. If a Holder of Treasury Units does notify the Purchase Contract Agent of its intention to effect a Cash Settlement but fails to deliver cash to pay the Purchase Price in accordance with the Purchase Contract Agreement, such failure shall also constitute a default under the Purchase Contract. If any such default occurs, upon the maturity of the Pledged Treasury Securities held by the Collateral Agent on the Business Day immediately prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, the principal amount of the Treasury Securities received by the Collateral Agent will be invested promptly in overnight Permitted Investments. On the Purchase Contract Settlement Date an amount equal to the Purchase Price will be remitted to the Company in settlement of the Purchase Contract in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Contract Agreement and the Pledge Agreement without receiving any instructions from the Holder.
The Company shall not be obligated to issue any shares of Common Stock in respect of a Purchase Contract or deliver any certificates therefor to the Holder unless it shall have received payment in full of the Purchase Price for the shares of Common Stock to be purchased thereunder in the manner set forth in the Purchase Contract Agreement.
The Treasury Unit Certificates are issuable only in registered form and only in denominations of a single Treasury Unit and any integral multiple thereof. The transfer of any Treasury Unit Certificate will be registered and Treasury Unit Certificates may be exchanged as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement. The Security Registrar may require a Holder, among other things, to furnish endorsements and transfer documents permitted by the Purchase Contract Agreement. No service charge shall be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Company and the Purchase Contract Agent may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith. A Holder who elects to substitute the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio, as the case may be, for Treasury Securities, thereby creating Corporate Units, shall be responsible for any fees or expenses payable in connection therewith. Except as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement, for so long as the Purchase Contract underlying a Treasury Unit remains in effect, such Treasury Unit shall not be separable into its constituent parts, and the rights and obligations of the Holder of such Treasury Unit in respect of the Treasury Security and the Purchase Contract comprising such Treasury Unit may be acquired, and may be transferred and exchanged, only as an entire Treasury Unit. The holder of any Treasury Units may substitute for the Treasury Securities securing its obligation under the related Purchase Contract, the appropriate Pledged Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the appropriate Pledged Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio (as specified in clause (i) of the definition of such term) in an aggregate principal amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of the Pledged Treasury Securities in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Contract Agreement and the Pledge Agreement. From and after such Collateral Substitution, the Unit for which such appropriate Pledged Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the appropriate Pledged Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio (as specified in clause (i) of the definition of such term) secures the Holder's obligation under the Purchase Contract shall be referred to as a “Corporate Unit.” A Holder may make such Collateral Substitution only in integral multiples of 20 Treasury Units for 20 Corporate Units; provided, however, that if a Special Event Redemption or a Mandatory Redemption or a Successful Remarketing has occurred and the Treasury Portfolio has become a component of the Corporate Units, a Holder may make such Collateral Substitutions only in integral multiples of 80,000 Treasury Units for 80,000 Corporate Units (or such other





number of Corporate Units as may be determined by the Remarketing Agents in connection with a Successful Remarketing of the Debentures if the Reset Effective Date is not a Payment Date).
A Holder of a Corporate Unit may, at any time, on or prior to the seventh Business Day immediately preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, create or recreate a Treasury Unit by substituting Treasury Securities for the Applicable Ownership Interest in Debentures or the Applicable Ownership Interest in the Treasury Portfolio (as specified in clause (i) of the definition of such term) that form a part of such Corporate Unit, as the case may be, in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Contract Agreement and the Pledge Agreement.
Subject to the next succeeding paragraph, the Company shall pay, on each Payment Date, the Contract Adjustment Payments payable in respect of each Purchase Contract to the Person in whose name the Treasury Unit Certificate evidencing such Purchase Contract is registered on the Security Register at the close of business on the Record Date relating to such Payment Date. The Contract Adjustment Payments will be payable at the Corporate Trust Office or, at the option of the Company, by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto at such address as it appears on the Security Register or by wire transfer to an account appropriately designated in writing by such person.
The Company shall have the right, at any time prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, to defer the payment of any or all of the Contract Adjustment Payments otherwise payable on any Payment Date to any subsequent Payment Date, but only if the Company shall give the Holders and the Purchase Contract Agent written notice of its election to defer such payment (specifying the amount to be deferred and the expected Deferral Period) as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement. Any Contract Adjustment Payments so deferred shall bear additional Contract Adjustment Payments thereon at the rate of 5.889% per annum (computed on the basis of a 360‑day year consisting of twelve 30‑day months), compounding on each succeeding Payment Date, until paid in full (such deferred installments of Contract Adjustment Payments, if any, together with the additional Contract Adjustment Payments accrued thereon, are referred to herein as the “Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments”). Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments, if any, shall be due on the next succeeding Payment Date except to the extent that payment is deferred pursuant to the Purchase Contract Agreement. No Contract Adjustment Payments may be deferred to a date that is after the Purchase Contract Settlement Date.
In the event the Company exercises its option to defer the payment of Contract Adjustment Payments, then, until the Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments have been paid, the Company shall not declare or pay dividends on, make distributions with respect to, or redeem, purchase or acquire, or make a liquidation payment with respect to, any of its capital stock or make guarantee payments with respect to the foregoing other than:
(i) purchases, redemptions or acquisitions of shares of capital stock of the Company in connection with any employment contract, benefit plan or other similar arrangement with or for the benefit of employees, officers, directors or agents or a stock purchase or dividend reinvestment plan, or the satisfaction by the Company of its obligations pursuant to any contract or security outstanding on the date that payment of Contract Adjustment Payments are deferred requiring the Company to purchase, redeem or acquire its capital stock,
(ii) as a result of a reclassification of the Company's capital stock or the exchange or conversion of all or a portion of one class or series of the Company's capital stock for another class or series of the Company's capital stock,





(iii) the purchase of fractional interests in shares of the Company's capital stock pursuant to the conversion or exchange provisions of the Company's capital stock or the security being converted or exchanged, or in connection with the settlement of stock purchase contracts,
(iv) dividends or distributions paid or made in capital stock of the Company (or rights to acquire capital stock), or repurchases, redemptions or acquisitions of capital stock in connection with the issuance or exchange of capital stock (or securities convertible into or exchangeable for shares of the Company's capital stock and distributions in connection with the settlement of stock purchase contracts) or
(v) redemptions, exchanges or repurchases of any rights outstanding under a shareholder rights plan or the declaration or payment thereunder of a dividend or distribution of or with respect to rights in the future.
The Purchase Contracts and all obligations and rights of the Company and the Holders thereunder, including, without limitation, the rights of the Holders to receive and the obligation of the Company to pay any Contract Adjustment Payments or any Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments, and the rights and obligations of the Holders to purchase shares of Common Stock will immediately and automatically terminate, without the necessity of any notice or action by any Holder, the Purchase Contract Agent or the Company, if, on or prior to the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, a Termination Event shall have occurred. Upon the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Company shall promptly but in no event later than two Business Days thereafter give written notice to the Purchase Contract Agent, the Collateral Agent and to the Holders, at their addresses as they appear in the Security Register. Upon and after the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Collateral Agent shall release the Treasury Securities from the Pledge in accordance with the provisions of the Pledge Agreement.
Subject to and upon compliance with the provisions of the Purchase Contract Agreement, a Holder of Treasury Units may settle the related Purchase Contracts in their entirety at any time on or prior to the second Business Day immediately preceding the first day of the Final Three‑Day Remarketing Period in the manner prescribed herein, but only in integral multiples of 20 Treasury Units. In order to exercise the right to effect any such early settlement (“Early Settlement”) with respect to any Purchase Contracts evidenced by this Treasury Unit Certificate, the Holder of this Treasury Unit Certificate shall deliver this Treasury Unit Certificate to the Purchase Contract Agent at the Corporate Trust Office duly endorsed for transfer to the Company or in blank with the form of Election to Settle Early/ Fundamental Change Early Settlement set forth below duly completed and executed and accompanied by payment (payable to the Company in immediately available funds in an amount (the “Early Settlement Amount”) equal to the sum of (i) $50 times the number of Purchase Contracts being settled, plus (ii) if such delivery is made with respect to any Purchase Contracts during the period from the close of business on any Record Date relating to any Payment Date to the opening of business on such Payment Date, an amount equal to the Contract Adjustment Payments payable, if any, on such Payment Date with respect to such Purchase Contracts; provided that no payment is required if the Company has elected to defer the Contract Adjustment Payments which would otherwise be payable on the Payment Date. Upon Early Settlement of Purchase Contracts by a Holder of the related Treasury Units, the Pledged Treasury Securities underlying such Treasury Units shall be released from the Pledge as provided in the Pledge Agreement and the Holder shall be entitled to receive a number of shares of Common Stock on account of each Purchase Contract forming part of a Treasury Unit as to which Early Settlement is effected equal to the Minimum Settlement Rate; provided however, that upon the Early Settlement of the Purchase Contracts, (i) the Holder's right to receive additional Contract Adjustment Payments in respect of such Purchase Contracts will terminate, and (ii) no adjustment will be made to or for the Holder on account of Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments, or any amount accrued in respect of Contract Adjustment Payments. The Early Settlement Rate shall be adjusted in the same manner and at the same time as the Settlement Rate is adjusted as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement.





Upon registration of transfer of this Treasury Unit Certificate, the transferee shall be bound (without the necessity of any other action on the part of such transferee, except as may be required by the Purchase Contract Agent pursuant to the Purchase Contract Agreement), under the terms of the Purchase Contract Agreement, the Purchase Contracts evidenced hereby and the Pledge Agreement and the transferor shall be released from the obligations under the Purchase Contracts evidenced by this Treasury Unit Certificate. The Company covenants and agrees, and the Holder, by its acceptance hereof, likewise covenants and agrees, to be bound by the provisions of this paragraph.
The Holder of this Treasury Unit Certificate, by its acceptance hereof, irrevocably authorizes the Purchase Contract Agent to enter into and perform the related Purchase Contracts forming part of the Treasury Units evidenced hereby on its behalf as its attorney‑in‑fact (including the execution of this Treasury Unit Certificate on behalf of such Holder), expressly withholds any consent to the assumption of the Purchase Contracts by the Company, its trustee in bankruptcy, receiver, liquidator or a person or entity performing similar functions, in the event that the Company becomes a debtor under the Bankruptcy Code or subject to other similar Federal or State law providing for reorganization or liquidation, agrees to be bound by the terms and provisions thereof, covenants and agrees to perform its obligations under such Purchase Contracts, consents to the provisions of the Purchase Contract Agreement, irrevocably authorizes the Purchase Contract Agent to enter into and perform the Pledge Agreement on its behalf as its attorney‑in‑fact, and consents and agrees to be bound by the Pledge of the Treasury Securities underlying this Treasury Unit Certificate pursuant to the Pledge Agreement. The Holder, by its acceptance hereof, further covenants and agrees, that, to the extent and in the manner provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement and the Pledge Agreement, but subject to the terms thereof, payments in respect of the Pledged Treasury Securities on the Purchase Contract Settlement Date shall be paid by the Collateral Agent to the Company in satisfaction of such Holder's obligations under such Purchase Contract and such Holder shall acquire no right, title or interest in such payments.
The Holder of this Treasury Unit Certificate (and the Treasury Securities underlying such Units), by its acceptance hereof, will be deemed to have represented and warranted that either:
(a)    the Holder is not purchasing the Treasury Units (and the Treasury Securities underlying Treasury Units of such Holder represented by this Treasury Units Certificate) with, or on behalf of, the assets of any Plan; or
(b)    (i) the Plan will receive no less and pay no more than “adequate consideration” (within the meaning of Section 408(b)(17) of ERISA and Section 4975(d)(20) of the Code) in connection with the purchase, holding and disposition of the Treasury Units (and the Treasury Securities underlying such Treasury Units),
(ii) the purchase, holding and disposition of the Treasury Units (and the Treasury Securities, underlying such Treasury Units) are eligible for exemptive relief or such purchase, holding and disposition will not result in a prohibited transaction under ERISA or the Code, or a violation of Similar Law,
(iii) neither the Company, NEE Capital nor any of their affiliates exercised any discretionary authority or discretionary control respecting the purchase, holding and disposition of the Treasury Units (and the Treasury Securities underlying such Treasury Units) and neither the Company, NEE Capital nor any of their affiliates provided advice that has formed the primary basis for the decision to purchase, hold or dispose of the Treasury Units (and the Treasury Securities underlying such Treasury Units) and
(iv) the Holder hereby directs the Company, NEE Capital, the Purchase Contract Agent, the Collateral Agent and the Remarketing Agents to take the actions set forth in the Purchase





Contract Agreement, the Pledge Agreement, the Officer's Certificate and the Remarketing Agreement to be taken by such parties.
Subject to certain exceptions, the provisions of the Purchase Contract Agreement may be amended with the consent of the Holders of a majority of the Purchase Contracts. In addition, certain amendments to the Purchase Contract Agreement may be made without any consent of the Holders as provided in the Purchase Contract Agreement.
THE PURCHASE CONTRACTS SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES THEREUNDER, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT THAT THE LAWS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION SHALL BE MANDATORILY APPLICABLE.
Prior to due presentment of a Certificate for registration of transfer, the Company, NextEra Energy Capital Holdings, Inc., a Florida corporation (“NEE Capital”), and the Purchase Contract Agent, and any agent of the Company, NEE Capital or the Purchase Contract Agent, may treat the Person in whose name this Treasury Unit Certificate is registered on the Security Register as the owner of the Treasury Units evidenced hereby for the purpose of receiving payments on the Treasury Securities, receiving payments of Contract Adjustment Payments and any Deferred Contract Adjustment Payments, performance of the Purchase Contracts and for all other purposes whatsoever, whether or not any payments, distributions or performance in respect thereof shall be overdue and notwithstanding any notice to the contrary, and neither the Company, NEE Capital nor the Purchase Contract Agent nor any agent of the Company, NEE Capital or the Purchase Contract Agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
The Purchase Contracts shall not, prior to the settlement thereof, in accordance with the Purchase Contract Agreement, entitle the Holder to any of the rights of a holder of shares of Common Stock.
