March 20, 2009, subject to acceleration as described below in “Price Event Acceleration” and “Alternate Exchange Calculation in Case of an Event of Default” and subject to extension if the Final Call Notice Date is postponed in accordance with the definition thereof.  If the Final Call Notice Date is postponed because it is not a Trading Day or due to a Market Disruption Event and the Issuer exercises the Morgan Stanley Call Right, the scheduled Maturity Date shall be postponed so that the Maturity Date is the tenth calendar day following the Final Call Notice Date.  See “Final Call Notice Date” below.
 
In the event that the Final Call Notice Date is postponed because it is not a Trading Day or due to a Market Disruption Event or otherwise, the Issuer shall give notice of such postponement as promptly as possible, and in no case later than two Business Days following the scheduled Final Call Notice Date, (i) to the holder of this SPARQS by mailing notice of such postponement by first class mail, postage prepaid, to the holder’s last address as it shall appear upon the registry books, (ii) to the Trustee by telephone or facsimile confirmed by mailing such notice to the Trustee by first class mail, postage prepaid, at its New York office and (iii) to The Depository Trust Company

    (the “Depositary”) by telephone or facsimile confirmed by mailing such notice to the Depositary by first class mail, postage prepaid.  Any notice that is mailed in the manner herein provided shall be conclusively presumed to have been duly given, whether or not the holder of this SPARQS receives the notice.  Notice of the date to which the Maturity Date has been rescheduled as a result of postponement of the Final Call Notice Date, if applicable, shall be included in the Issuer’s notice of exercise of the Morgan Stanley Call Right.
     
Interest Payment Dates
 
June 20, 2008, September 20, 2008, December 20, 2008 and the Maturity Date.
 
If the scheduled Maturity Date is postponed, the Issuer shall pay interest on the Maturity Date as postponed rather than on the scheduled Maturity Date, but no interest shall accrue on this SPARQS or on such payment during the period from or after the scheduled Maturity Date.
     
Record Date
 
Notwithstanding the definition of “Record Date” below, the Record Date for each Interest Payment Date, including the Interest Payment Date scheduled to occur on the Maturity Date, shall be the date 5 calendar days prior to such scheduled Interest Payment Date, whether or not that date is a Business Day; provided, however, that in the event that the Issuer exercises the Morgan Stanley Call Right, no Interest Payment Date shall occur after the Morgan Stanley Notice Date, except for any Interest Payment Date for which the Morgan Stanley Notice Date falls on or after the “ex-interest” date for the related interest payment, in which case the related interest payment shall be made on such Interest Payment Date; and provided, further, that accrued but unpaid interest payable on the Call Date, if any, shall be payable to the person to whom the Call Price is payable.  The “ex-interest” date for any interest payment is the date on which purchase transactions in the SPARQS no longer carry the right to receive such interest payment.
 
In the event that the Issuer exercises the Morgan Stanley Call Right and the Morgan Stanley Notice
 
4


 
   
Date falls before the “ex-interest” date for an interest payment, so that as a result a scheduled Interest Payment Date does not occur, the Issuer shall cause the Calculation Agent to give notice to the Trustee and to the Depositary, in each case in the manner and at the time described in the second and third paragraphs under “Morgan Stanley Call Right” below, that no Interest Payment Date shall occur after such Morgan Stanley Notice Date.
     
Morgan Stanley Call Right
 
On any scheduled Trading Day on or after the First Call Date or on the Maturity Date (including the Maturity Date as it may be extended and regardless of whether the Maturity Date is a Trading Day), the Issuer may call the SPARQS, in whole but not in part, for mandatory exchange for the Call Price paid in cash (together with accrued but unpaid interest) on the Call Date.
 
On the Morgan Stanley Notice Date, the Issuer shall give notice of the Issuer’s exercise of the Morgan Stanley Call Right (i) to the holder of this SPARQS by mailing notice of such exercise, specifying the Call Date on which the Issuer shall effect such exchange, by first class mail, postage prepaid, to the holder’s last address as it shall appear upon the registry books, (ii) to the Trustee by telephone or facsimile confirmed by mailing such notice to the Trustee by first class mail, postage prepaid, at its New York office and (iii) to the Depositary in accordance with the applicable procedures set forth in the Blanket Letter of Representations prepared by the Issuer.  Any notice which is mailed in the manner herein provided shall be conclusively presumed to have been duly given, whether or not the holder of this SPARQS receives the notice.  Failure to give notice by mail or any defect in the notice to the holder of any SPARQS shall not affect the validity of the proceedings for the exercise of the Morgan Stanley Call Right with respect to any other SPARQS.
 
The notice of the Issuer’s exercise of the Morgan Stanley Call Right shall specify (i) the Call Date, (ii) the Call Price payable per SPARQS, (iii) the amount of accrued but unpaid interest payable per SPARQS on
 
5


 
   
the Call Date, (iv) whether any subsequently scheduled Interest Payment Date shall no longer be an Interest Payment Date as a result of the exercise of the Morgan Stanley Call Right, (v) the place or places of payment of such Call Price, (vi) that such delivery shall be made upon presentation and surrender of this SPARQS, (vii) that such exchange is pursuant to the Morgan Stanley Call Right and (viii) if applicable, the date to which the Maturity Date has been extended due to a Market Disruption Event as described under “Maturity Date” above.
 
The notice of the Issuer’s exercise of the Morgan Stanley Call Right shall be given by the Issuer or, at the Issuer’s request, by the Trustee in the name and at the expense of the Issuer.
 
If this SPARQS is so called for mandatory exchange by the Issuer, then the cash Call Price and any accrued but unpaid interest on this SPARQS to be delivered to the holder of this SPARQS shall be delivered on the Call Date fixed by the Issuer and set forth in its notice of its exercise of the Morgan Stanley Call Right, upon delivery of this SPARQS to the Trustee.  The Issuer shall, or shall cause the Calculation Agent to, deliver such cash to the Trustee for delivery to the holder of this SPARQS.
 
If this SPARQS is not surrendered for exchange on the Call Date, it shall be deemed to be no longer Outstanding under, and as defined in, the Senior Indenture after the Call Date, except with respect to the holder’s right to receive cash due in connection with the Morgan Stanley Call Right.
     
Morgan Stanley Notice Date
 
The scheduled Trading Day on which the Issuer issues its notice of mandatory exchange, which must be at least 10 but not more than 30 calendar days prior to the Call Date.
     
Final Call Notice Date
 
March 10, 2009; provided that if such date is not a Trading Day or if a Market Disruption Event occurs on such day, the Final Call Notice Date shall be the immediately succeeding Trading Day on which no Market Disruption Event occurs.
 
6


 
Call Date
 
The day specified in the Issuer’s notice of mandatory exchange, on which the Issuer shall deliver cash to the holder of this SPARQS, for mandatory exchange, which day may be any scheduled Trading Day on or after the First Call Date or the Maturity Date (including the Maturity Date as it may be extended and regardless of whether the Maturity Date is a scheduled Trading Day).  See “Maturity Date” above.
     
Call Price
 
The Call Price with respect to any Call Date is an amount of cash per each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS, as calculated by the Calculation Agent,  such that the sum of the present values of all cash flows on each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS to and including the Call Date (i.e., the Call Price and all of the interest payments, including accrued and unpaid interest payable on the Call Date), discounted to the Original Issue Date from the applicable payment date at the Yield to Call rate computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months, equals the Stated Principal Amount, as determined by the Calculation Agent.
     
Exchange at Maturity
 
At maturity, subject to a prior call of this SPARQS for cash in an amount equal to the Call Price by the Issuer as described under “Morgan Stanley Call Right” above or any acceleration of the SPARQS, upon delivery of this SPARQS to the Trustee, each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS shall be applied by the Issuer as payment for a number of shares of the Underlying Stock at the Exchange Ratio, and the Issuer shall deliver with respect to each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS an amount of the Underlying Stock equal to the Exchange Ratio.
 
The amount of Underlying Stock to be delivered at maturity shall be subject to any applicable adjustments (i) to the Exchange Ratio (including, as applicable, any New Stock Exchange Ratio or any Basket Stock Exchange Ratio, each as defined in paragraph 5 under “Antidilution Adjustments” below) and (ii) in the Exchange Property, as defined in paragraph 5 under “Antidilution Adjustments” below, to be delivered instead of, or in addition to, such Underlying Stock as a result of any corporate event described under
 
7


 
   
“Antidilution Adjustments” below, in each case, required to be made through the close of business on the third Trading Day prior to the scheduled Maturity Date.
     
   
The Issuer shall, or shall cause the Calculation Agent to, provide written notice to the Trustee at its New York Office and to the Depositary, on which notice the Trustee and Depositary may conclusively rely, on or prior to 10:30 a.m. on the Trading Day immediately prior to maturity of this SPARQS (but if such Trading Day is not a Business Day, prior to the close of business on the Business Day preceding the maturity of this SPARQS), of the amount of Underlying Stock (or the amount of Exchange Property) or cash to be delivered with respect to each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS and of the amount of any cash to be paid in lieu of any fractional share of the Underlying Stock (or of any other securities included in Exchange Property, if applicable); provided that if the maturity date of this SPARQS is accelerated (x) because of a Price Event Acceleration (as described under “Price Event Acceleration” below) or (y) because of an Event of Default Acceleration (as defined under “Alternate Exchange Calculation in Case of an Event of Default” below), the Issuer shall give notice of such acceleration as promptly as possible, and in no case later than (A) in the case of an Event of Default Acceleration, two Trading Days following such deemed maturity date or (B) in the case of a Price Event Acceleration, 10:30 a.m. on the Trading Day immediately prior to the date of acceleration (as defined under “Price Event Acceleration” below), (i) to the holder of this SPARQS by mailing notice of such acceleration by first class mail, postage prepaid, to the holder’s last address as it shall appear upon the registry books, (ii) to the Trustee by telephone or facsimile confirmed by mailing such notice to the Trustee by first class mail, postage prepaid, at its New York office and (iii) to the Depositary by telephone or facsimile confirmed by mailing such notice to the Depositary by first class mail, postage prepaid.  Any notice that is mailed in the manner herein provided shall be conclusively presumed to have been duly given, whether or not the
 
8


 
   
holder of this SPARQS receives the notice.  If the maturity of this SPARQS is accelerated, no interest on the amounts payable with respect to this SPARQS shall accrue for the period from and after such accelerated maturity date; provided that the Issuer has deposited with the Trustee the Underlying Stock, the Exchange Property or any cash due with respect to such acceleration by such accelerated maturity date.
 
The Issuer shall, or shall cause the Calculation Agent to, deliver any such shares of the Underlying Stock (or any Exchange Property) and cash in respect of interest and any fractional share of the Underlying Stock (or any Exchange Property) and cash otherwise due upon any acceleration described above to the Trustee for delivery to the holder of this Note.  References to payment “per SPARQS” refer to each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS.
 
If this SPARQS is not surrendered for exchange at maturity, it shall be deemed to be no longer Outstanding under, and as defined in, the Senior Indenture, except with respect to the holder’s right to receive Underlying Stock (and, if applicable, any Exchange Property) and any cash in respect of interest and any fractional share of the Underlying Stock (or any Exchange Property) and any other cash due at maturity as described in the preceding paragraph under this heading.
     
Price Event Acceleration
 
If on any two consecutive Trading Days during the period prior to and ending on the third Business Day immediately preceding the Maturity Date, the product of the Closing Price of the Underlying Stock and the Exchange Ratio is less than the Acceleration Trigger Price, the Maturity Date of this SPARQS shall be deemed to be accelerated to the third Business Day immediately following such second Trading Day (the “date of acceleration”).  Upon such acceleration, the holder of each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS shall receive per SPARQS on the date of acceleration:
 
(i) a number of shares of the Underlying Stock at the then current Exchange Ratio;
 
9


 
   
(ii) accrued but unpaid interest on each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS to but excluding the date of acceleration; and
 
(iii) an amount of cash as determined by the Calculation Agent equal to the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of interest on each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS (excluding the amounts included in clause (ii) above) discounted to the date of acceleration.  The present value of each remaining scheduled payment shall be based on the comparable yield that the Issuer would pay on a non-interest bearing, senior unsecured debt obligation of the Issuer having a maturity equal to the term of each such remaining scheduled payment, as determined by the Calculation Agent.
 
The holder of this SPARQS shall not be entitled to receive the return of each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS upon a Price Event Acceleration.
     
No Fractional Shares
 
Upon delivery of this SPARQS to the Trustee at maturity, the Issuer shall deliver the aggregate number of shares of the Underlying Stock due with respect to this SPARQS, as described above, but the Issuer shall pay cash in lieu of delivering any fractional share of the Underlying Stock in an amount equal to the corresponding fractional Closing Price of such fraction of a share of the Underlying Stock as determined by the Calculation Agent as of the second scheduled Trading Day prior to maturity of this SPARQS.
     
Closing Price
 
The Closing Price for one share of the Underlying Stock (or one unit of any other security for which a Closing Price must be determined) on any Trading Day means:

   
if the Underlying Stock (or any such other security) is listed or admitted to trading on a national securities exchange (other than The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (the “NASDAQ”)), the last reported sale price, regular way, of the principal trading session on such day on the principal national securities exchange registered under the
 
10


 
      Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), on which the Underlying Stock (or any such other security) is listed or admitted to trading,
       
    .
if the Underlying Stock (or any such other security) is a security of the NASDAQ, the official closing price published by the NASDAQ on such day, or
       
    .
if the Underlying Stock (or any such other security) is not listed or admitted to trading on any national securities exchange but is included in the OTC Bulletin Board Service (the “OTC Bulletin Board”) operated by the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc., the last reported sale price of the principal trading session on the OTC Bulletin Board on such day.
       
   
If the Underlying Stock (or any such other security) is listed or admitted to trading on any national securities exchange but the last reported sale price or the official closing price published by NASDAQ, as applicable, is not available pursuant to the preceding sentence, then the Closing Price for one share of the Underlying Stock (or one unit of any such other security) on any Trading Day shall mean the last reported sale price of the principal trading session on the over-the-counter market as reported on the NASDAQ or the OTC Bulletin Board on such day.  If a Market Disruption Event occurs with respect to the Underlying Stock (or any such other security) or the last reported sale price or the official closing price published by NASDAQ, as applicable, for the Underlying Stock (or any such other security) is not available pursuant to either of the two preceding sentences, then the Closing Price for any Trading Day shall be the mean, as determined by the Calculation Agent, of the bid prices for the Underlying Stock (or any such other security) for such Trading Day obtained from as many recognized dealers in such security, but not exceeding three, as shall make such bid prices available to the Calculation Agent.  Bids of MS & Co. or any of its affiliates may be included in the calculation of such mean, but only to the extent that any such bid is the highest of the bids obtained.  The
 
11


 
    term “OTC Bulletin Board Service” shall include any successor service thereto.
     
Trading Day
 
A day, as determined by the Calculation Agent, on which trading is generally conducted on the New York Stock Exchange LLC (“NYSE”), the American Stock Exchange LLC, the NASDAQ, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the Chicago Board of Options Exchange and in the over-the-counter market for equity securities in the United States and, if the principal trading market of the Underlying Stock is outside the United States, in such principal trading market.
     
Calculation Agent
 
Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated (“MS & Co.”) and its successors.
 
All calculations with respect to the Exchange Ratio and Call Price for the SPARQS shall be made by the Calculation Agent and shall be rounded to the nearest one hundred-thousandth, with five one-millionths rounded upward (e.g., .876545 would be rounded to .87655); all dollar amounts related to the Call Price resulting from such calculations shall be rounded to the nearest ten-thousandth, with five one hundred-thousandths rounded upward (e.g., .76545 would be rounded to .7655); and all dollar amounts paid with respect to the Call Price on the aggregate number of SPARQS shall be rounded to the nearest cent, with one-half cent rounded upward.
 
All determinations made by the Calculation Agent shall be at the sole discretion of the Calculation Agent and shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive for all purposes and binding on the holder of this SPARQS, the Trustee and the Issuer.
     
Antidilution Adjustments
 
The Exchange Ratio shall be adjusted as follows:
     
   
1. If the Underlying Stock is subject to a stock split or reverse stock split, then once such split has become effective, the Exchange Ratio shall be adjusted to equal the product of the prior Exchange Ratio and the number of shares issued in such stock split or reverse stock split with respect to one share of the Underlying Stock.
 
12


 
   
2. If the Underlying Stock is subject (i) to a stock dividend (issuance of additional shares of the Underlying Stock) that is given ratably to all holders of shares of the Underlying Stock or (ii) to a distribution of the Underlying Stock as a result of the triggering of any provision of the corporate charter of the Underlying Company, then once the dividend has become effective and the Underlying Stock is trading ex-dividend, the Exchange Ratio shall be adjusted so that the new Exchange Ratio shall equal the prior Exchange Ratio plus the product of (i) the number of shares issued with respect to one share of  the Underlying Stock and (ii) the prior Exchange Ratio.
 
3. If the Underlying Company issues rights or warrants to all holders of the Underlying Stock to subscribe for or purchase Underlying Stock at an exercise price per share less than the Closing Price of the Underlying Stock on both (i) the date the exercise price of such rights or warrants is determined and (ii) the expiration date of such rights or warrants, and if the expiration date of such rights or warrants precedes the maturity of this SPARQS, then the Exchange Ratio shall be adjusted to equal the product of the prior Exchange Ratio and a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of the Underlying Stock outstanding immediately prior to the issuance of such rights or warrants plus the number of additional shares of Underlying Stock offered for subscription or purchase pursuant to such rights or warrants and the denominator of which shall be the number of shares of Underlying Stock outstanding immediately prior to the issuance of such rights or warrants plus the number of additional shares of Underlying Stock which the aggregate offering price of the total number of shares of Underlying Stock so offered for subscription or purchase pursuant to such rights or warrants would purchase at the Closing Price on the expiration date of such rights or warrants, which shall be determined by multiplying such total number of shares offered by the exercise price of such rights or warrants and dividing the product so obtained by such Closing Price.
 
13


 
   
4. There shall be no adjustments to the Exchange Ratio to reflect cash dividends or other distributions paid with respect to the Underlying Stock other than distributions described in paragraph 2, paragraph 3 and clauses (i), (iv) and (v) of the first sentence of paragraph 5 and Extraordinary Dividends as described below.  A cash dividend or other distribution with respect to the Underlying Stock shall be deemed to be an “Extraordinary Dividend” if such cash dividend or distribution exceeds the immediately preceding non-Extraordinary Dividend for the Underlying Stock by an amount equal to at least 10% of the Closing Price of the Underlying Stock (as adjusted for any subsequent corporate event requiring an adjustment hereunder, such as a stock split or reverse stock split) on the Trading Day preceding the ex-dividend date (that is, the day on and after which transactions in the Underlying Stock on the primary U.S. organized securities exchange or trading system on which the Underlying Stock is traded or trading system no longer carry the right to receive that cash dividend or that cash distribution) for the payment of such Extraordinary Dividend (such closing price, the “Base Closing Price”).  Subject to the following sentence, if an Extraordinary Dividend occurs with respect to the Underlying Stock, the Exchange Ratio with respect to the Underlying Stock shall be adjusted on the ex-dividend date with respect to such Extraordinary Dividend so that the new Exchange Ratio shall equal the product of (i) the then current Exchange Ratio and (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the Base Closing Price, and the denominator of which is the amount by which the Base Closing Price exceeds the Extraordinary Dividend Amount.  If any Extraordinary Dividend Amount is at least 35% of the Base Closing Price, then, instead of adjusting the Exchange Ratio, the amount payable upon exchange at maturity shall be determined as described in paragraph 5 below, and the Extraordinary Dividend shall be allocated to Reference Basket Stocks in accordance with the procedures for a Reference Basket Event as described in clause (c)(ii) of paragraph 5 below.  The “Extraordinary Dividend Amount” with respect to an Extraordinary Dividend for the Underlying Stock shall equal (i) in the case of
 
14


 
   
cash dividends or other distributions that constitute regular dividends, the amount per share of such Extraordinary Dividend minus the amount per share of the immediately preceding non-Extraordinary Dividend for the Underlying Stock or (ii) in the case of cash dividends or other distributions that do not constitute regular dividends, the amount per share of such Extraordinary Dividend.  The value of the non-cash component of an Extraordinary Dividend shall be determined on the ex-dividend date for such distribution by the Calculation Agent, whose determination shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.  A distribution on the Underlying Stock described in clause (i), (iv) or (v) of the first sentence of paragraph 5 below shall cause an adjustment to the Exchange Ratio pursuant only to clause (i), (iv) or (v) of the first sentence of paragraph 5, as applicable.
 
5. Any of the following shall constitute a Reorganization Event:  (i) the Underlying Stock is reclassified or changed, including, without limitation, as a result of the issuance of any tracking stock by the Underlying Company, (ii) the Underlying Company has been subject to any merger, combination or consolidation and is not the surviving entity, (iii) the Underlying Company completes a statutory exchange of securities with another corporation (other than pursuant to clause (ii) above), (iv) the Underlying Company is liquidated, (v) the Underlying Company issues to all of its shareholders equity securities of an issuer other than the Underlying Company (other than in a transaction described in clause (ii), (iii) or (iv) above) (a “spinoff stock”) or (vi) the Underlying Stock is the subject of a tender or exchange offer or going private transaction on all of the outstanding shares.  If any Reorganization Event occurs, in each case as a result of which the holders of the Underlying Stock receive any equity security listed on a national securities exchange or traded on NASDAQ (a “Marketable Security”), other securities or other property, assets or cash (collectively “Exchange Property”), the amount payable upon exchange at maturity with respect to each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS following the effective date for such
 
15


 
   
Reorganization Event (or, if applicable, in the case of spinoff stock, the ex-dividend date for the distribution of such spinoff stock) and any required adjustment to the Exchange Ratio shall be determined in accordance with the following:
 
(a) if the Underlying Stock continues to be outstanding, the Underlying Stock (if applicable, as reclassified upon the issuance of any tracking stock) at the Exchange Ratio in effect on the third Trading Day prior to the scheduled Maturity Date (taking into account any adjustments for any distributions described under clause (c)(i) below); and
 
(b) for each Marketable Security received in such Reorganization Event (each a “New Stock”), including the issuance of any tracking stock or spinoff stock or the receipt of any stock received in exchange for the Underlying Stock, the number of shares of the New Stock received with respect to one share of Underlying Stock multiplied by the Exchange Ratio for Underlying Stock on the Trading Day immediately prior to the effective date of the Reorganization Event (the “New Stock Exchange Ratio”), as adjusted to the third Trading Day prior to the scheduled Maturity Date (taking into account any adjustments for distributions described under clause (c)(i) below); and
 
(c) for any cash and any other property or securities other than Marketable Securities received in such Reorganization Event (the “Non-Stock Exchange Property”),
 
(i) if the combined value of the amount of Non-Stock Exchange Property received per share of Underlying Stock, as determined by the Calculation Agent in its sole discretion on the effective date of such Reorganization Event (the “Non-Stock Exchange Property Value”), by holders of the Underlying Stock is less than 25% of the Closing Price of the Underlying Stock on the Trading Day immediately prior to the effective date of such Reorganization
 
16


 
   
Event, a number of shares of the Underlying Stock, if applicable, and of any New Stock received in connection with such Reorganization Event, if applicable, in proportion to the relative Closing Prices of the Underlying Stock and any such New Stock, and with an aggregate value equal to the Non-Stock Exchange Property Value multiplied by the Exchange Ratio in effect for the Underlying Stock on the Trading Day immediately prior to the effective date of such Reorganization Event, based on such Closing Prices, in each case as determined by the Calculation Agent in its sole discretion on the effective date of such Reorganization Event; and the number of such shares of Underlying Stock or any New Stock determined in accordance with this clause (c)(i) shall be added at the time of such adjustment to the Exchange Ratio in subparagraph (a) above and/or the New Stock Exchange Ratio in subparagraph (b) above, as applicable, or
 
(ii) if the Non-Stock Exchange Property Value is equal to or exceeds 25% of the Closing Price of Underlying Stock on the Trading Day immediately prior to the effective date relating to such Reorganization Event or, if the Underlying Stock is surrendered exclusively for Non-Stock Exchange Property (in each case, a “Reference Basket Event”), an initially equal-dollar weighted basket of three Reference Basket Stocks (as defined below) with an aggregate value on the effective date of such Reorganization Event equal to the Non-Stock Exchange Property Value multiplied by the Exchange Ratio in effect for the Underlying Stock on the Trading Day immediately prior to the effective date of such Reorganization Event.  The “Reference Basket Stocks” shall be the three stocks with the largest market capitalization among the stocks that then constitute the S&P 500 Index (or, if publication of such index is discontinued, any successor or substitute index selected by the Calculation
 
17


 
   
Agent in its sole discretion) with the same primary Standard Industrial Classification Code (“SIC Code”) as the Underlying Company; provided, however, that a Reference Basket Stock shall not include any stock that is subject to a trading restriction under the trading restriction policies of Morgan Stanley or any of its affiliates that would materially limit the ability of Morgan Stanley or any of its affiliates to hedge the SPARQS with respect to such stock (a “Hedging Restriction”); provided further that if three Reference Basket Stocks cannot be identified from the S&P 500 Index by primary SIC Code for which a Hedging Restriction does not exist, the remaining Reference Basket Stock(s) shall be selected by the Calculation Agent from the largest market capitalization stock(s) within the same Division and Major Group classification (as defined by the Office of Management and Budget) as the primary SIC Code for the Underlying Company.  Each Reference Basket Stock shall be assigned a Basket Stock Exchange Ratio equal to the number of shares of such Reference Basket Stock with a Closing Price on the effective date of such Reorganization Event equal to the product of (a) the Non-Stock Exchange Property Value, (b) the Exchange Ratio in effect for the Underlying Stock on the Trading Day immediately prior to the effective date of such Reorganization Event and (c) 0.3333333.
     
   
Following the allocation of any Extraordinary Dividend to Reference Basket Stocks pursuant to paragraph 4 above or any Reorganization Event described in this paragraph 5, the amount payable upon exchange at maturity with respect to each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS shall be the sum of:
 
(x)    if applicable, the Underlying Stock at the Exchange Ratio then in effect; and
 
18


 
   
(y)    if applicable, for each New Stock, such New Stock at the New Stock Exchange Ratio then in effect for such New Stock; and
 
(z)    if applicable, for each Reference Basket Stock,   such Reference Basket Stock at the Basket Stock  Exchange Ratio then in effect for such Reference Basket Stock.
     
   
In each case, the applicable Exchange Ratio (including for this purpose, any New Stock Exchange Ratio or Basket Stock Exchange Ratio) shall be determined by the Calculation Agent on the third Trading Day prior to the scheduled Maturity Date.
 
For purposes of paragraph 5 above, in the case of a consummated tender or exchange offer or going-private transaction involving consideration of particular types, Exchange Property shall be deemed to include the amount of cash or other property delivered by the offeror in the tender or exchange offer (in an amount determined on the basis of the rate of exchange in such tender or exchange offer or going-private transaction).  In the event of a tender or exchange offer or a going-private transaction with respect to Exchange Property in which an offeree may elect to receive cash or other property, Exchange Property shall be deemed to include the kind and amount of cash and other property received by offerees who elect to receive cash.
 
Following the occurrence of any Reorganization Event referred to in paragraphs 4 or 5 above, (i) references to “Underlying Stock” under “No Fractional Shares,” “Closing Price” and “Market Disruption Event” shall be deemed to also refer to any New Stock or Reference Basket Stock, and (ii) all other references in this SPARQS to “Underlying Stock” shall be deemed to refer to the Exchange Property into which this SPARQS is thereafter exchangeable and references to a “share” or “shares” of Underlying Stock shall be deemed to refer to the applicable unit or units of such Exchange Property, including any New Stock or Reference Basket Stock, unless the context otherwise requires.  The New Stock Exchange Ratio(s) or Basket
 
19


 
   
Stock Exchange Ratios resulting from any Reorganization Event described in paragraph 5 above or similar adjustment under paragraph 4 above shall be subject to the adjustments set forth in paragraphs 1 through 5 hereof.
 
If a Reference Basket Event occurs, the Issuer shall, or shall cause the Calculation Agent to, provide written notice to the Trustee at its New York office, on which notice the Trustee may conclusively rely, and to DTC of the occurrence of such Reference Basket Event and of the three Reference Basket Stocks selected as promptly as possible and in no event later than five Business Days after the date of the Reference Basket Event.
 
No adjustment to any Exchange Ratio (including for this purpose, any New Stock Exchange Ratio or Basket Stock Exchange Ratio) shall be required unless such adjustment would require a change of at least 0.1% in the Exchange Ratio then in effect.  The Exchange Ratio resulting from any of the adjustments specified above shall be rounded to the nearest one hundred-thousandth, with five one-millionths rounded upward.  Adjustments to the Exchange Ratios shall be made up to the close of business on the third Trading Day prior to the scheduled Maturity Date.
 
No adjustments to the Exchange Ratio or method of calculating the Exchange Ratio shall be made other than those specified above.
 
The Calculation Agent shall be solely responsible for the determination and calculation of any adjustments to the Exchange Ratio, any New Stock Exchange Ratio or Basket Stock Exchange Ratio or method of calculating the Exchange Property Value and of any related determinations and calculations with respect to any distributions of stock, other securities or other property or assets (including cash) in connection with any corporate event described in paragraphs 1 through 5 above, and its determinations and calculations with respect thereto shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.

The Calculation Agent shall provide information as to any adjustments to the Exchange Ratio, or to the method of calculating the amount payable upon exchange at maturity of the SPARQS made pursuant to paragraph 5 above, upon written request by the holder of this SPARQS.
     
Market Disruption Event
 
Market Disruption Event means, with respect to the Underlying Stock:
     
   
(i) a suspension, absence or material limitation of trading of the Underlying Stock on the primary market for the Underlying Stock for more than two hours of trading or during the one-half hour period preceding the close of the principal trading session in such market; or a breakdown or failure in the price and trade reporting systems of the primary market for the Underlying Stock as a result of which the reported trading prices for the Underlying Stock during the last one-half hour preceding the close of the principal trading session in such market are materially inaccurate; or the suspension, absence or material limitation of trading on the primary market for trading in options contracts related to the Underlying Stock, if available, during the one-half hour period preceding the close of the principal trading session in the applicable market, in each case as determined by the Calculation Agent in its sole discretion; and
 
(ii) a determination by the Calculation Agent in its sole discretion that any event described in clause (i) above materially interfered with the ability of the Issuer or any of its affiliates to unwind or adjust all or a material portion of the hedge with respect to this issuance of SPARQS.
 
For purposes of determining whether a Market Disruption Event has occurred: (1) a limitation on the hours or number of days of trading shall not constitute a Market Disruption Event if it results from an announced change in the regular business hours of the primary market, (2) a decision to permanently discontinue trading in the relevant options contract
 
21


 
   
shall not constitute a Market Disruption Event, (3) limitations pursuant to NYSE Rule 80A (or any applicable rule or regulation enacted or promulgated by the NYSE, any other self-regulatory organization or  the Securities and Exchange Commission of scope similar to NYSE Rule 80A as determined by the Calculation Agent) on trading during significant market fluctuations shall constitute a suspension, absence or material limitation of trading, (4) a suspension of trading in options contracts on the Underlying Stock by the primary securities market trading in such options, if available, by reason of (x) a price change exceeding limits set by such securities exchange or market, (y) an imbalance of orders relating to such contracts or (z) a disparity in bid and ask quotes relating to such contracts shall constitute a suspension, absence or material limitation of trading in options contracts related to the Underlying Stock and (5) a suspension, absence or material limitation of trading on the primary securities market on which options contracts related to the Underlying Stock are traded shall not include any time when such securities market is itself closed for trading under ordinary circumstances.
     
Alternate Exchange Calculation
   
in Case of an Event of Default
 
In case an event of default with respect to the SPARQS shall have occurred and be continuing, the amount declared due and payable per each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS upon any acceleration of this SPARQS (an “Event of Default Acceleration”) shall be determined by the Calculation Agent and shall be an amount in cash equal to the lesser of (i) the product of (x) the Closing Price of the Underlying Stock (and/or the value of any Exchange Property) as of the date of such acceleration and (y) the then current Exchange Ratio and (ii) the Call Price calculated as though the date of acceleration were the Call Date (but in no event less than the Call Price for the first Call Date), in each case plus accrued but unpaid interest to but excluding the date of acceleration; provided that if the Issuer has called the SPARQS in accordance with the Morgan Stanley Call Right, the amount declared due and payable upon any such acceleration shall be an amount
 
22


 
    in cash for each Stated Principal Amount of this SPARQS equal to the Call Price for the Call Date specified in the Issuer’s notice of mandatory exchange, plus accrued but unpaid interest to but excluding the date of acceleration.

If this Note is denominated in a Specified Currency other than U.S. dollars, and the holder does not elect (in whole or in part) to receive payment in U.S. dollars pursuant to the next succeeding paragraph, payments of interest, principal or any premium with regard to this Note will be made by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account maintained by the holder hereof with a bank located outside the United States if appropriate wire transfer instructions have been received by the Paying Agent in writing, with respect to payments of interest, on or prior to the fifth Business Day after the applicable Record Date and, with respect to payments of principal or any premium, at least ten Business Days prior to the Maturity Date or any redemption or repayment date, as the case may be; provided that, if payment of interest, principal or any premium with regard to this Note is payable in euro, the account must be a euro account in a country for which the euro is the lawful currency, provided, further, that if such wire transfer instructions are not received, such payments will be made by check payable in such Specified Currency mailed to the address of the person entitled thereto as such address shall appear in the Note register; and provided, further, that payment of the principal of this Note, any premium and the interest due at maturity (or on any redemption or repayment date) will be made upon surrender of this Note at the office or agency referred to in the preceding paragraph.

FORM OF REVERSE OF SECURITY
 
This Note is one of a duly authorized issue of Senior Global Medium-Term Notes, Series F (the “Notes”) of the Issuer.  The Notes are issuable under a Senior Indenture, dated as of November 1, 2004, between the Issuer and The Bank of New York, a New York banking corporation (as successor Trustee to JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (formerly known as JPMorgan Chase Bank)), as Trustee (the “Trustee,” which term includes any successor trustee under the Senior Indenture) (as may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Senior Indenture”), to which Senior Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities of the Issuer, the Trustee and holders of the Notes and the terms upon which the Notes are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered.  The Issuer has appointed The Bank of New York (as successor to JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.) at its corporate trust office in The City of New York as the paying agent (the “Paying Agent,” which term includes any additional or successor Paying Agent appointed by the Issuer) with respect to the Notes.  The terms of individual Notes may vary with respect to interest rates, interest rate formulas, issue dates, maturity dates, or otherwise, all as provided in the Senior Indenture.  To the extent not inconsistent herewith, the terms of the Senior Indenture are hereby incorporated by reference herein.

Unless otherwise indicated on the face hereof, this Note will not be subject to any sinking fund and, unless otherwise provided on the face hereof in accordance with the provisions of the following two paragraphs, will not be redeemable or subject to repayment at the option of the holder prior to maturity.
 
If so indicated on the face hereof, this Note may be redeemed in whole or in part at the option of the Issuer on or after the Initial Redemption Date specified on the face hereof on the terms set forth on the face hereof, together with interest accrued and unpaid hereon to the date of redemption.  If this Note is subject to “Annual Redemption Percentage Reduction,” the Initial Redemption Percentage indicated on the face hereof will be reduced on each anniversary of the Initial Redemption Date by the Annual Redemption Percentage Reduction specified on the face hereof until the redemption price of this Note is 100% of the principal amount hereof, together with interest accrued and unpaid hereon to the date of redemption.  If the face hereof indicates that this Note is subject to “Modified Payment upon Acceleration or Redemption”, the amount of principal payable upon redemption will be limited to the aggregate principal amount hereof multiplied by the sum of the Issue Price specified on the face hereof (expressed as a percentage of the aggregate principal amount) plus the original issue discount accrued from the Interest Accrual Date to the date of redemption (expressed as a percentage of the aggregate principal amount), with the amount of original issue discount accrued being calculated using a constant yield method (as described below).  Notice of redemption shall be mailed to the registered holders of the Notes designated for redemption at their addresses as the same shall appear on the Note register not less than 30 nor more than 60 calendar days prior to the date fixed for redemption or within the Redemption Notice Period specified on the face hereof, subject to all the conditions and provisions of the Senior Indenture.  In the event of redemption of this Note in
 
28

 
part only, a new Note or Notes for the amount of the unredeemed portion hereof shall be issued in the name of the holder hereof upon the cancellation hereof.

 
If so indicated on the face of this Note, this Note will be subject to repayment at the option of the holder on the Optional Repayment Date or Dates specified on the face hereof on the terms set forth herein.  On any Optional Repayment Date, this Note will be repayable in whole or in part in increments of $1,000 or, if this Note is denominated in a Specified Currency other than U.S. dollars, in increments of 1,000 units of such Specified Currency (provided that any remaining principal amount hereof shall not be less than the minimum authorized denomination hereof) at the option of the holder hereof at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount to be repaid, together with interest accrued and unpaid hereon to the date of repayment, provided that if the face hereof indicates that this Note is subject to “Modified Payment upon Acceleration or Redemption”, the amount of principal payable upon repayment will be limited to the aggregate principal amount hereof multiplied by the sum of the Issue Price specified on the face hereof (expressed as a percentage of the aggregate principal amount) plus the original issue discount accrued from the Interest Accrual Date to the date of repayment  (expressed as a percentage of the aggregate principal amount), with the amount of original issue discount accrued being calculated using a constant yield method (as described below).  For this Note to be repaid at the option of the holder hereof, the Paying Agent must receive at its corporate trust office in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York, at least 15 but not more than 30 calendar days prior to the date of repayment, (i) this Note with the form entitled “Option to Elect Repayment” below duly completed or (ii) a telegram, telex, facsimile transmission or a letter from a member of a national securities exchange or the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. or a commercial bank or a trust company in the United States setting forth the name of the holder of this Note, the principal amount hereof, the certificate number of this Note or a description of this Note’s tenor and terms, the principal amount hereof to be repaid, a statement that the option to elect repayment is being exercised thereby and a guarantee that this Note, together with the form entitled “Option to Elect Repayment” duly completed, will be received by the Paying Agent not later than the fifth Business Day after the date of such telegram, telex, facsimile transmission or letter; provided, that such telegram, telex, facsimile transmission or letter shall only be effective if this Note and form duly completed are received by the Paying Agent by such fifth Business Day.  Exercise of such repayment option by the holder hereof shall be irrevocable.  In the event of repayment of this Note in part only, a new Note or Notes for the amount of the unpaid portion hereof shall be issued in the name of the holder hereof upon the cancellation hereof.
 
Interest payments on this Note will include interest accrued to but excluding the Interest Payment Dates or the Maturity Date (or any earlier redemption or repayment date), as the case may be.  Unless otherwise provided on the face hereof, interest payments for this Note will be computed and paid on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months.
 
In the case where the Interest Payment Date or the Maturity Date (or any redemption or repayment date) does not fall on a Business Day, payment of interest, premium, if any, or principal otherwise payable on such date need not be made on such date, but may be made on the
 
29

 
next succeeding Business Day with the same force and effect as if made on the Interest Payment Date or on the Maturity Date (or any redemption or repayment date), and no interest on such payment shall accrue for the period from and after the Interest Payment Date or the Maturity Date (or any redemption or repayment date) to such next succeeding Business Day.
 
This Note and all the obligations of the Issuer hereunder are direct, unsecured obligations of the Issuer and rank without preference or priority among themselves and paripassu with all other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated indebtedness of the Issuer, subject to certain statutory exceptions in the event of liquidation upon insolvency.
 
This Note, and any Note or Notes issued upon transfer or exchange hereof, is issuable only in fully registered form, without coupons, and, if denominated in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise stated above, is issuable only in denominations of U.S. $1,000 and any integral multiple of U.S. $1,000 in excess thereof.  If this Note is denominated in a Specified Currency other than U.S. dollars, then, unless a higher minimum denomination is required by applicable law, it is issuable only in denominations of the equivalent of U.S. $1,000 (rounded to an integral multiple of 1,000 units of such Specified Currency), or any amount in excess thereof which is an integral multiple of 1,000 units of such Specified Currency, as determined by reference to the noon dollar buying rate in The City of New York for cable transfers of such Specified Currency published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (the “Market Exchange Rate”) on the Business Day immediately preceding the date of issuance.
 
The Trustee has been appointed registrar for the Notes, and the Trustee will maintain at its office in The City of New York a register for the registration and transfer of Notes.  This Note may be transferred at the aforesaid office of the Trustee by surrendering this Note for cancellation, accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Issuer and the Trustee and duly executed by the registered holder hereof in person or by the holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, and thereupon the Trustee shall issue in the name of the transferee or transferees, in exchange herefor, a new Note or Notes having identical terms and provisions and having a like aggregate principal amount in authorized denominations, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein; provided, however, that the Trustee will not be required (i) to register the transfer of or exchange any Note that has been called for redemption in whole or in part, except the unredeemed portion of Notes being redeemed in part, (ii) to register the transfer of or exchange any Note if the holder thereof has exercised his right, if any, to require the Issuer to repurchase such Note in whole or in part, except the portion of such Note not required to be repurchased, or (iii) to register the transfer of or exchange Notes to the extent and during the period so provided in the Senior Indenture with respect to the redemption of Notes.  Notes are exchangeable at said office for other Notes of other authorized denominations of equal aggregate principal amount having identical terms and provisions.  All such exchanges and transfers of Notes will be free of charge, but the Issuer may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge in connection therewith.  All Notes surrendered for exchange shall be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the
 
30

 
Issuer and the Trustee and executed by the registered holder in person or by the holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing.  The date of registration of any Note delivered upon any exchange or transfer of Notes shall be such that no gain or loss of interest results from such exchange or transfer.
 
In case this Note shall at any time become mutilated, defaced or be destroyed, lost or stolen and this Note or evidence of the loss, theft or destruction thereof (together with the indemnity hereinafter referred to and such other documents or proof as may be required in the premises) shall be delivered to the Trustee, the Issuer in its discretion may execute a new Note of like tenor in exchange for this Note, but, if this Note is destroyed, lost or stolen, only upon receipt of evidence satisfactory to the Trustee and the Issuer that this Note was destroyed or lost or stolen and, if required, upon receipt also of indemnity satisfactory to each of them.  All expenses and reasonable charges associated with procuring such indemnity and with the preparation, authentication and delivery of a new Note shall be borne by the owner of the Note mutilated, defaced, destroyed, lost or stolen.
 
The Senior Indenture provides that (a) if an Event of Default (as defined in the Senior Indenture) due to the default in payment of principal of, premium, if any, or interest on, any series of debt securities issued under the Senior Indenture, including the series of Senior Medium-Term Notes of which this Note forms a part, or due to the default in the performance or breach of any other covenant or warranty of the Issuer applicable to the debt securities of such series but not applicable to all outstanding debt securities issued under the Senior Indenture shall have occurred and be continuing, either the Trustee or the holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of each affected series, voting as one class, by notice in writing to the Issuer and to the Trustee, if given by the securityholders, may then declare the principal of all debt securities of all such series and interest accrued thereon to be due and payable immediately and (b) if an Event of Default due to a default in the performance of any other of the covenants or agreements in the Senior Indenture applicable to all outstanding debt securities issued thereunder, including this Note, or due to certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization of the Issuer, shall have occurred and be continuing, either the Trustee or the holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of all outstanding debt securities issued under the Senior Indenture, voting as one class, by notice in writing to the Issuer and to the Trustee, if given by the securityholders, may declare the principal of all such debt securities and interest accrued thereon to be due and payable immediately, but upon certain conditions such declarations may be annulled and past defaults may be waived (except a continuing default in payment of principal or premium, if any, or interest on such debt securities) by the holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the debt securities of all affected series then outstanding.
 
If the face hereof indicates that this Note is subject to “Modified Payment upon Acceleration or Redemption,” then (i) if the principal hereof is declared to be due and payable as described in the preceding paragraph, the amount of principal due and payable with respect to this Note shall be limited to the aggregate principal amount hereof multiplied by the sum of the
 
31

 
Issue Price specified on the face hereof (expressed as a percentage of the aggregate principal amount) plus the original issue discount accrued from the Interest Accrual Date to the date of declaration (expressed as a percentage of the aggregate principal amount), with the amount of original issue discount accrued being calculated using a constant yield method (as described in the next paragraph), (ii) for the purpose of any vote of securityholders taken pursuant to the Senior Indenture prior to the acceleration of payment of this Note, the principal amount hereof shall equal the amount that would be due and payable hereon, calculated as set forth in clause (i) above, if this Note were declared to be due and payable on the date of any such vote and (iii) for the purpose of any vote of securityholders taken pursuant to the Senior Indenture following the acceleration of payment of this Note, the principal amount hereof shall equal the amount of principal due and payable with respect to this Note, calculated as set forth in clause (i) above.
 
The constant yield shall be calculated using a 30-day month, 360-day year convention, a compounding period that, except for the initial period (as defined below), corresponds to the shortest period between Interest Payment Dates (with ratable accruals within a compounding period), and an assumption that the maturity will not be accelerated.  If the period from the Original Issue Date to the first Interest Payment Date (the “initial period”) is shorter than the compounding period for this Note, a proportionate amount of the yield for an entire compounding period will be accrued.  If the initial period is longer than the compounding period, then the period will be divided into a regular compounding period and a short period with the short period being treated as provided in the preceding sentence.
 
If the face hereof indicates that this Note is subject to “Tax Redemption and Payment of Additional Amounts,” this Note may be redeemed, as a whole, at the option of the Issuer at any time prior to maturity, upon the giving of a notice of redemption as described below, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount hereof, together with accrued interest to the date fixed for redemption (except that if this Note is subject to “Modified Payment upon Acceleration or Redemption,” the amount of principal so payable will be limited to the aggregate principal amount hereof multiplied by the sum of the Issue Price specified on the face hereof (expressed as a percentage of the aggregate principal amount) plus the original issue discount accrued from the Interest Accrual Date to the date of redemption (expressed as a percentage of the aggregate principal amount), with the amount of original issue discount accrued being calculated using a constant yield method (as described above)), if the Issuer determines that, as a result of any change in or amendment to the laws (including a holding, judgment or as ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction), or any regulations or rulings promulgated thereunder, of the United States or of any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein affecting taxation, or any change in official position regarding the application or interpretation of such laws, regulations or rulings, which change or amendment occurs, becomes effective or, in the case of a change in official position, is announced on or after the Initial Offering Date hereof, the Issuer has or will become obligated to pay Additional Amounts, as defined below, with respect to this Note as described below.  Prior to the giving of any notice of redemption pursuant to this paragraph, the Issuer shall deliver to the Trustee (i) a certificate stating that the Issuer is entitled to effect such redemption and setting forth a statement of facts showing that the conditions precedent to the right of the Issuer to so redeem have occurred, and (ii) an opinion of
 
32

 
independent legal counsel satisfactory to the Trustee to such effect based on such statement of facts; provided that no such notice of redemption shall be given earlier than 60 calendar days prior to the earliest date on which the Issuer would be obligated to pay such Additional Amounts if a payment in respect of this Note were then due.
 
Notice of redemption will be given not less than 30 nor more than 60 calendar days prior to the date fixed for redemption or within the Redemption Notice Period specified on the face hereof, which date and the applicable redemption price will be specified in the notice.
 
If the face hereof indicates that this Note is subject to “Tax Redemption and Payment of Additional Amounts,” the Issuer will, subject to certain exceptions and limitations set forth below, pay such additional amounts (the “Additional Amounts”) to the holder of this Note who is a U.S. Alien as may be necessary in order that every net payment of the principal of and interest on this Note and any other amounts payable on this Note, after withholding or deduction for or on account of any present or future tax, assessment or governmental charge imposed upon or as a result of such payment by the United States, or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein, will not be less than the amount provided for in this Note to be then due and payable.  The Issuer will not, however, make any payment of Additional Amounts to any such holder who is a U.S. Alien for or on account of:
 
(a)           any present or future tax, assessment or other governmental charge that would not have been so imposed but for (i) the existence of any present or former connection between such holder, or between a fiduciary, settlor, beneficiary, member or shareholder of such holder, if such holder is an estate, a trust, a partnership or a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes, and the United States, including, without limitation, such holder, or such fiduciary, settlor, beneficiary, member or shareholder, being or having been a citizen or resident thereof or being or having been engaged in a trade or business or present therein or having, or having had, a permanent establishment therein or (ii) the presentation by or on behalf of the holder of this Note for payment on a date more than 15 calendar days after the date on which such payment became due and payable or the date on which payment thereof is duly provided for, whichever occurs later;
 
(b)           any estate, inheritance, gift, sales, transfer, excise or personal property tax or any similar tax, assessment or governmental charge;
 
(c)           any tax, assessment or other governmental charge imposed by reason of such holder’s past or present status as a controlled foreign corporation or passive foreign investment company with respect to the United States or as a corporation which accumulates earnings to avoid U.S. federal income tax or as a private foundation or other tax-exempt organization or a bank receiving interest under Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended;
 
33

 
(d)           any tax, assessment or other governmental charge that is payable otherwise than by withholding or deduction from payments on or in respect of this Note;
 
(e)           any tax, assessment or other governmental charge required to be withheld by any Paying Agent from any payment of principal of, or interest on, this Note, if such payment can be made without such withholding by any other Paying Agent in a city in Western Europe;
 
(f)           any tax, assessment or other governmental charge that would not have been imposed but for the failure to comply with certification, information or other reporting requirements concerning the nationality, residence or identity of the holder or beneficial owner of this Note, if such compliance is required by statute or by regulation of the United States or of any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein as a precondition to relief or exemption from such tax, assessment or other governmental charge;
 
(g)           any tax, assessment or other governmental charge imposed by reason of such holder’s past or present status as the actual or constructive owner of 10% or more of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock entitled to vote of the Issuer or as a direct or indirect subsidiary of the Issuer; or
 
(h)           any combination of items (a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f) or (g).
 
In addition, the Issuer shall not be required to make any payment of Additional Amounts (i) to any such holder where such withholding or deduction is imposed on a payment to an individual and is required to be made pursuant to any law implementing or complying with, or introduced in order to conform to, any European Union Directive on the taxation of savings; or (ii) by or on behalf of a holder who would have been able to avoid such withholding or deduction by presenting this Note or the relevant coupon to another Paying Agent in a member state of the European Union. Nor shall the Issuer pay Additional Amounts with respect to any payment on this Note to a U.S. Alien who is a fiduciary or partnership or other than the sole beneficial owner of such payment to the extent such payment would be required by the laws of the United States (or any political subdivision thereof) to be included in the income, for tax purposes, of a beneficiary or settlor with respect to such fiduciary or a member of such partnership or a beneficial owner who would not have been entitled to the Additional Amounts had such beneficiary, settlor, member or beneficial owner been the holder of this Note.
 
The Senior Indenture permits the Issuer and the Trustee, with the consent of the holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the debt securities of all series issued under the Senior Indenture then outstanding and affected (voting as one class), to execute supplemental indentures adding any provisions to or changing in any manner the rights of the holders of each series so affected; provided that the Issuer and the Trustee may not, without the consent of the holder of each outstanding debt security affected thereby, (a) extend the final maturity of any such debt security, or reduce the principal amount thereof, or reduce the rate or extend the time of payment of interest thereon, or reduce any amount payable on redemption thereof, or change the currency of payment thereof, or modify or amend the provisions for
 
34

 
conversion of any currency into any other currency, or modify or amend the provisions for conversion or exchange of the debt security for securities of the Issuer or other entities or for other property or the cash value of the property (other than as provided in the antidilution provisions or other similar adjustment provisions of the debt securities or otherwise in accordance with the terms thereof), or impair or affect the rights of any holder to institute suit for the payment thereof or (b) reduce the aforesaid percentage in principal amount of debt securities the consent of the holders of which is required for any such supplemental indenture.
 
Except as set forth below, if the principal of, premium, if any, or interest on this Note is payable in a Specified Currency other than U.S. dollars and such Specified Currency is not available to the Issuer for making payments hereon due to the imposition of exchange controls or other circumstances beyond the control of the Issuer or is no longer used by the government of the country issuing such currency or for the settlement of transactions by public institutions within the international banking community, then the Issuer will be entitled to satisfy its obligations to the holder of this Note by making such payments in U.S. dollars on the basis of the Market Exchange Rate on the date of such payment or, if the Market Exchange Rate is not available on such date, as of the most recent practicable date; provided, however, that if the euro has been substituted for such Specified Currency, the Issuer may at its option (or shall, if so required by applicable law) without the consent of the holder of this Note effect the payment of principal of, premium, if any, or interest on any Note denominated in such Specified Currency in euro in lieu of such Specified Currency in conformity with legally applicable measures taken pursuant to, or by virtue of, the Treaty establishing the European Community, as amended.  Any payment made under such circumstances in U.S. dollars or euro where the required payment is in an unavailable Specified Currency will not constitute an Event of Default.  If such Market Exchange Rate is not then available to the Issuer or is not published for a particular Specified Currency, the Market Exchange Rate will be based on the highest bid quotation in The City of New York received by the Exchange Rate Agent at approximately 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on the second Business Day preceding the date of such payment from three recognized foreign exchange dealers (the “Exchange Dealers”) for the purchase by the quoting Exchange Dealer of the Specified Currency for U.S. dollars for settlement on the payment date, in the aggregate amount of the Specified Currency payable to those holders or beneficial owners of Notes and at which the applicable Exchange Dealer commits to execute a contract.  One of the Exchange Dealers providing quotations may be the Exchange Rate Agent unless the Exchange Rate Agent is an affiliate of the Issuer.  If those bid quotations are not available, the Exchange Rate Agent shall determine the market exchange rate at its sole discretion.
 
The “Exchange Rate Agent” shall be Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated, unless otherwise indicated on the face hereof.
 
All determinations referred to above made by, or on behalf of, the Issuer or by, or on behalf of, the Exchange Rate Agent shall be at such entity’s sole discretion and shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive for all purposes and binding on holders of Notes and coupons.
 
So long as this Note shall be outstanding, the Issuer will cause to be maintained an office or agency for the payment of the principal of and premium, if any, and interest on this Note as
 
35

 
herein provided in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York, and an office or agency in said Borough of Manhattan for the registration, transfer and exchange as aforesaid of the Notes.  The Issuer may designate other agencies for the payment of said principal, premium and interest at such place or places (subject to applicable laws and regulations) as the Issuer may decide.  So long as there shall be such an agency, the Issuer shall keep the Trustee advised of the names and locations of such agencies, if any are so designated.  If any European Union Directive on the taxation of savings comes into force, the Issuer will, to the extent possible as a matter of law, maintain a Paying Agent in a member state of the European Union that will not be obligated to withhold or deduct tax pursuant to any such Directive or any law implementing or complying with, or introduced in order to conform to, such Directive.
 
With respect to moneys paid by the Issuer and held by the Trustee or any Paying Agent for payment of the principal of or interest or premium, if any, on any Notes that remain unclaimed at the end of two years after such principal, interest or premium shall have become due and payable (whether at maturity or upon call for redemption or otherwise), (i) the Trustee or such Paying Agent shall notify the holders of such Notes that such moneys shall be repaid to the Issuer and any person claiming such moneys shall thereafter look only to the Issuer for payment thereof and (ii) such moneys shall be so repaid to the Issuer.  Upon such repayment all liability of the Trustee or such Paying Agent with respect to such moneys shall thereupon cease, without, however, limiting in any way any obligation that the Issuer may have to pay the principal of or interest or premium, if any, on this Note as the same shall become due.
 
No provision of this Note or of the Senior Indenture shall alter or impair the obligation of the Issuer, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on this Note at the time, place, and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed unless otherwise agreed between the Issuer and the registered holder of this Note.
 
Prior to due presentment of this Note for registration of transfer, the Issuer, the Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Trustee may treat the holder in whose name this Note is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Note be overdue, and none of the Issuer, the Trustee or any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
 
No recourse shall be had for the payment of the principal of, premium, if any, or the interest on this Note, for any claim based hereon, or otherwise in respect hereof, or based on or in respect of the Senior Indenture or any indenture supplemental thereto, against any incorporator, shareholder, officer or director, as such, past, present or future, of the Issuer or of any successor corporation, either directly or through the Issuer or any successor corporation, whether by virtue of any constitution, statute or rule of law or by the enforcement of any assessment or penalty or otherwise, all such liability being, by the acceptance hereof and as part of the consideration for the issue hereof, expressly waived and released.
 
This Note shall for all purposes be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York.
