Section 2.               The New Bonds shall not be assignable or transferable except as permitted or required by Section 4.04 of the Senior Note Indenture.  Any such transfer shall be effected at the principal office or place of business of the Trustee under the Original Indenture.  The New Bonds are exchangeable for the New Bonds of other denominations, as in the Original Indenture provided, except that payment of a service charge therefor will not be required by the Company.

 

Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 6 of Article II of the Original Indenture, the New Bonds shall be dated the date of authentication and shall bear interest from the interest payment date to which interest on the New Bonds has been paid next preceding the date thereof, unless such date is an interest payment date to which interest has been paid, in which case they shall bear interest from the date thereof, or unless the date thereof is prior to October 1, 2008, in which case they shall bear interest from April 8, 2008; provided, however, that, subject to the provisions of this Section with respect to failure by the Company to pay any interest on an interest payment date, the holder of any New Bond dated after a record date (as hereinafter defined) for the payment of interest and prior to the date of payment of such interest shall not be entitled to payment of such interest and shall have no claim against the Company with respect thereto.

 

The person in whose name any New Bond is registered at the close of business on any record date with respect to any interest payment date shall be entitled to receive the interest payable on such interest payment date notwithstanding the cancellation of such Bond upon any transfer or exchange thereof subsequent to the record date and prior to such interest payment date, except if and to the extent the Company shall default in the payment of the interest due on such interest payment date, in which case such defaulted interest shall be paid to the person in whose name such Bond is registered on the date of payment of such defaulted interest or on a subsequent record date for such payment if one shall have been established as hereinafter provided.  A subsequent record date may be established by the Company by notice mailed to the holders of the New Bonds not less than ten days preceding such record date, which record date shall be not more than thirty days prior to the subsequent interest payment date.  The term “record date” as used in this Section with respect to any regular interest payment date shall mean the March 15 or September 15, as the case may be, next preceding such interest payment date, or, if such March 15 or September 15 shall be a legal holiday in the State of New York or in the State of Missouri or a day on which banking institutions in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York, or the City of St. Louis, Missouri, are authorized by law to close, the next preceding day which shall not be a legal holiday or a day on which such institutions are so authorized to close.

 

Upon any payment of the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on, all or any portion of the Senior Notes, whether at maturity or prior to maturity by redemption or otherwise or upon provision for the payment thereof having been made in accordance with Section 5.01(a) of the Senior Note Indenture, the New Bonds in a principal amount equal to the principal amount of such Senior Notes shall, to the extent of such payment of principal, premium, if any, and interest, be

deemed paid and the obligation of the Company thereunder to make such payment shall be discharged to such extent and, in the case of the payment of principal (and premium, if any), such New Bonds shall be surrendered to the Company for cancellation as provided in Section 4.08 of the Senior Note Indenture. The Trustee may at any time and all times conclusively assume that the obligation of the Company to make payments with respect to the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on the Senior Notes, so far as such payments at the time have become due, has been fully satisfied and discharged pursuant to the foregoing sentence unless and until the Trustee shall have received a written notice from the Senior Note Trustee signed by one of its officers stating (i) the timely payment of principal, or premium, if any, or interest on, the Senior Notes has not been made, (ii) that the Company is in arrears as to the payments required to be made by it to the Senior Note Trustee pursuant to the Senior Note Indenture, and (iii) the amount of the arrearage.

ARTICLE II

ISSUE OF THE NEW BONDS

 

Section 1.     The principal amount of the New Bonds which may be authenticated and delivered hereunder is limited to an amount equal to the principal amount of the Senior Notes issued under the Senior Note Indenture and secured thereby and are further subject to the limitations regarding the principal amount of Bonds which may be issued under the Original Indenture set forth therein.

 

Section 2.     The New Bonds in the aggregate principal amount of Two Hundred Fifty Million Dollars ($250,000,000), being the initial issue of the New Bonds, may forthwith at any time or from time to time be executed by the Company and delivered to the Trustee and shall be authenticated by the Trustee and delivered (either before or after the filing or recording hereof) to or upon the order of the Company, upon compliance by the Company with the applicable provisions of Article III and Article XVIII of the Original Indenture.

 

Section 3.     For purposes of Section 4.09 of the Senior Note Indenture, the New Bonds shall be deemed to be the “Related Series of Senior Notes First Mortgage Bonds” in respect of the Senior Notes.

 

ARTICLE III

REDEMPTION OF THE NEW BONDS

 

Section 1.     The New Bonds are not redeemable except on the date, in the principal amount and for the redemption price that correspond to the redemption date for, the principal amount to be redeemed of, and the redemption price for, the Senior Notes, and except as set forth in Section 2 of this Article III.

 

In the event that the Company redeems any Senior Notes prior to maturity in accordance with the provisions of the Senior Note Indenture, the Senior Note Trustee shall on the same date deliver to the Company the New Bonds in principal amount corresponding to the Senior Notes so redeemed, as provided in Section 4.08 of the Senior Note Indenture.  The Company agrees to give the Senior Note Trustee notice of any such redemption of the Senior Notes on or before the date fixed for any such redemption.  There shall be no improvement, maintenance or analogous fund for the New Bonds.

 

Section 2.     Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under the Senior Note Indenture and the acceleration of the Senior Notes, the New Bonds shall be redeemable in whole upon receipt by the Trustee of a written demand (hereinafter called a “Redemption Demand”) from the Senior Note Trustee stating that there has occurred under the Senior Note Indenture both an Event of Default and a declaration of acceleration of payment of principal, accrued interest and premium, if any, on the Senior Notes specifying the last date to which interest on such Senior Notes has been paid (such date being hereinafter referred to as the “Initial Interest Accrual Date”) and demanding redemption of the New Bonds.  The Company waives any right it may have to prior notice of such redemption under the Original Indenture.  Upon surrender of the New Bonds by the Senior Note Trustee to the Trustee, the New Bonds shall be redeemed at a redemption price equal to the principal amount thereof plus accrued interest thereon from the Initial Interest Accrual Date to the

 

19



 

date of the Redemption Demand; provided, however, that in the event of a rescission or annulment of acceleration of the Senior Notes pursuant to the last paragraph of Section 8.01(a) of the Senior Note Indenture, then any Redemption Demand shall thereby be deemed to be rescinded by the Senior Note Trustee although no such rescission or annulment shall extend to or affect any subsequent default or impair any right consequent thereon.
