     obligation toward, or any relationship of agency or trust for or with, any
     of the holders of the Securities;

          (b) unless otherwise specifically provided herein, any order,

     thereto;

          (d) the Calculation Agent, whether acting for itself or in any other

     rights as it would have had if it were not acting hereunder as Calculation

          (e) the Calculation Agent shall incur no liability hereunder except
     for loss sustained by reason of its gross negligence or willful misconduct.

         6. Resignation; Removal; Successor. (a) The Calculation Agent may at

acceptance of such appointment by such successor Calculation Agent, as
hereinafter provided. The Calculation Agent hereunder may be removed at any time


                                                                               3

filed with the successor Calculation Agent. Upon the appointment as aforesaid of
a successor Calculation Agent and acceptance by the latter of such appointment,

further act, deed or conveyance, shall become vested with all the authority,
rights, powers, trusts, immunities, duties and obligations of such predecessor
with like effect as if originally named as Calculation Agent hereunder, and such
predecessor, upon payment of its charges and disbursements then unpaid, shall

                         [Calculation Agency Agreement]




                                     ANNEX A

     1. The Index.

        The Index is the Dow Jones EURO STOXX 50(SM) Index (the "Index"), as
calculated, published and disseminated by STOXX Limited ("STOXX").


     2. Determination of the Maturity Payment Amount.

        The Calculation Agent shall, at the request of the Trustee, determine
the amount payable on the Stated Maturity Date for each $1,000 principal amount
of Securities (the "Maturity Payment Amount").

        The Maturity Payment Amount shall be the following:

        o    If the Final Index Return is not negative, $1,000 + ($1,000 x the
             Upside Participation Rate x the Final Index Return).

        o    If the Final Index Return is negative and the Final Index Level
             is equal to or greater than the Threshold Level, $1,000 + ($1,000
             x the absolute value of the Final Index Return).

        o    If the Final Index Return is negative and the Final Index Level
             is less than the Threshold Level, $1,000 + ($1,000 x the Final
             Index Return).


     3. Discontinuance of the Index.

     (a) If STOXX discontinues publication of the Index and STOXX or another
entity publishes a successor or substitute index (the "Successor Index") that
the Calculation Agent determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good
faith, to be comparable to the discontinued Index, then the Calculation Agent
shall determine each subsequent Closing Index Level to be used in computing the
Maturity Payment Amount by reference to the Closing Index Level of such
Successor Index on the applicable date.

     (b) Upon any selection by the Calculation Agent of a Successor Index, the
Company shall promptly give notice to the holders of the Securities.

     (c) If STOXX discontinues publication of the Index and the Calculation
Agent determines that no Successor Index is available at such time, or if STOXX
(or the publisher of any Successor Index) fails to calculate and publish a
Closing Index Level for the Index (or a Successor Index) on any date when it
would ordinarily do so in accordance with its customary practice, the
Calculation Agent will determine the Closing Index Level to be used for purposes
of computing the Maturity Payment Amount. In such circumstances, the Closing
Index Level will be computed by the Calculation Agent in accordance with the
formula for and method of calculating the Index (or any Successor Index) last in
effect prior to such discontinuance or failure to publish, using the Closing
Index Level (or, if trading in any of the relevant securities has been
materially suspended or materially limited, its good faith estimate of the
Closing Price that would have prevailed but for such suspension or limitation)
on such date of each security


                                                                               2


most recently comprising the Index (or any Successor Index) on the Relevant
Exchange on which such Security trades.


     4. Alteration of Method of Calculation.

        If at any time the method of calculating the Index, any Successor Index
or the Closing Index Level thereof on any particular day, is changed in a
material respect, or if the Index or a Successor Index is in any other way
modified so that such index does not, in the opinion of the Calculation Agent,
fairly represent the level of the Index or such Successor Index had such changes
or modifications not been made, then, from and after such time, the Calculation
Agent shall, at the Close of Trading of the Relevant Exchanges on which the
securities comprising the Index or such Successor Index traded on any date the
Closing Index Level thereof is to be determined, make such calculations and
adjustments as, in the good faith judgment of the Calculation Agent, may be
necessary in order to arrive at a level of a stock index comparable to the Index
or such Successor Index, as the case may be, as if such changes or modifications
had not been made. The Calculation Agent shall calculate the Closing Index Level
on any particular day and the Maturity Payment Amount with reference to the
Index or such Successor Index, as adjusted.

        Accordingly, if the method of calculating the Index or a Successor Index
is modified so that the level of such index is a fraction of what it would have
been if it had not been modified, then the Calculation Agent shall adjust such
index in order to arrive at a level of the Index or such Successor Index as if
it had not been modified.
