REVERSE OF SECURITY
This Security is one of a duly authorized issue of securities of the Company (herein called the Securities), issued and to be issued in one or more series under an Indenture, dated as of September 30, 2022 (herein called the Indenture, which term shall have the meaning assigned to it in such instrument), between the Company and U.S. Bank Trust Company, National Association, as Trustee (herein called the Trustee, which term includes any successor trustee under the Indenture), and reference is hereby made to the Indenture for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Company, the Trustee and the Holders of the Securities, and of the terms upon which the Securities are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered. This Security is one of the series designated on the face hereof.
The Securities will be redeemable at any time prior to September 3, 2052, as a whole or in part, at the option of the Company, on at least 10 days, but not more than 60 days, prior notice mailed to the registered address of each holder of the Securities to be redeemed, at a redemption price (expressed as a percentage of principal amount and rounded to three decimal points) equal to the greater of:
(a) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest thereon discounted to the redemption date (assuming the Securities to be redeemed matured on September 3, 2052) on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Treasury Rate plus 15 basis points less (b) interest accrued to the date of redemption, and
100% of the principal amount of the Securities to be redeemed,
plus, in either case, accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the principal amount of the Securities to be redeemed to, but excluding, the redemption date.
The securities will be redeemable at any time on or after September 3, 2052, as a whole or in part, at the option of the Company, on at least 10 days, but not more than 60 days, prior notice mailed to the registered address of each holder of the series of Securities to be redeemed, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Securities to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the principal amount of the Securities to be redeemed to, but excluding, the redemption date.
Treasury Rate means, with respect to any redemption date, the yield determined by the Company in accordance with the following two paragraphs.
The Treasury Rate shall be determined by the Company after 4:15 p.m., New York City time (or after such time as yields on U.S. government securities are posted daily by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System), on the third business day preceding the redemption date based upon the yield or yields for the most recent day that appear after such time on such day in the most recent statistical release published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System designated as Selected Interest Rates (Daily)H.15 (or any successor designation or publication) (H.15) under the caption U.S. government securitiesTreasury constant maturitiesNominal (or any successor caption or heading). In determining the Treasury Rate, the Company will select, as applicable: (1) the yield for the Treasury constant maturity on H.15 exactly equal to the period from the redemption date to September 3, 2052 (the Remaining Life); or (2) if there is no such Treasury constant maturity on H.15 exactly equal to the Remaining Life, the two yields one yield corresponding to the Treasury constant maturity on H.15 immediately shorter than and one yield corresponding to the Treasury constant maturity on H.15 immediately longer than the Remaining Life and will interpolate to September 3, 2052 on a straight-line basis (using the actual number of days) using such yields and rounding the result to three decimal places; or (3) if there is no such Treasury constant maturity on H.15 shorter than or longer than the Remaining Life, the yield for the single Treasury constant maturity on H.15 closest to the Remaining Life. For purposes of this paragraph, the applicable Treasury constant maturity or maturities on H.15 will be deemed to have a maturity date equal to the relevant number of months or years, as applicable, of such Treasury constant maturity from the redemption date.
If on the third business day preceding the redemption date H.15 or any successor designation or publication is no longer published, the Company will calculate the Treasury Rate based on the rate per annum equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on the second business day preceding such redemption date of the United States Treasury security maturing on, or with a maturity that is closest to, September 3, 2052. If there is no United States Treasury security maturing on September 3, 2052 but there are two or more United States Treasury securities with a maturity date equally distant from September 3, 2052, one with a maturity date preceding September 3, 2052 and one with a maturity date following September 3, 2052, the Company will select the United States Treasury security with a maturity date preceding September 3, 2052. If there are two or more United States Treasury securities maturing on September 3, 2052 or two or more United States Treasury securities meeting the criteria of the preceding sentence, the Company will select from among these two or more United States Treasury securities the United States Treasury security that is trading closest to par based upon the average of the bid and asked prices for such United States Treasury securities at 11:00 a.m., New York City time. In determining the Treasury Rate in accordance with the terms of this paragraph, the semi-annual yield to maturity of the applicable United States Treasury security will be based upon the average of the bid and asked prices (expressed as a percentage of principal amount) at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, of such United States Treasury security, and rounded to three decimal places.
The Companys actions and determinations in determining the redemption price will be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.
If money sufficient to pay the redemption price of all of the applicable series of Securities to be redeemed on the redemption date is deposited with the trustee or paying agent on or before the redemption date and certain other conditions are satisfied, then on and after such redemption date, interest will cease to accrue on such Securities called for redemption.
The Company may at any time, and from time to time, purchase the Securities at any price or prices in the open market or otherwise.
The Company will not create, assume, incur or guarantee, and will not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to create, assume, incur or guarantee, any Secured Indebtedness without making provision whereby this Security shall be secured equally and ratably with, or prior to, such Secured Indebtedness, together with, if the Company shall so determine, any other Indebtedness of the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary then existing or thereafter created that is not subordinate to this Security, so long as the Secured Indebtedness shall be outstanding, unless such Secured Indebtedness, when added to (a) the aggregate amount of all Secured Indebtedness then outstanding (not including in this computation Secured Indebtedness if this Security is secured equally and ratably with (or prior to) such Secured Indebtedness and further not including in this computation any Secured Indebtedness that is concurrently being retired) and (b) the aggregate amount of all Attributable Debt then outstanding pursuant to Sale and Leaseback Transactions entered into by the Company after January 26, 1999, or entered into by a Restricted Subsidiary after January 26, 1999 or, if later, the date on which it became a Restricted Subsidiary (not including in this computation any Attributable Debt that is concurrently being retired), would not exceed 10% of Consolidated Net Tangible Assets.
The Company will not, and will not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, enter into any Sale and Leaseback Transaction unless (a) the sum of (i) the Attributable Debt to be outstanding pursuant to such Sale and Leaseback Transaction, (ii) all Attributable Debt then outstanding pursuant to all other Sale and Leaseback Transactions entered into by the Company after January 26, 1999, or entered into by a Restricted Subsidiary after January 26, 1999 or, if later, the date on which it became a Restricted Subsidiary, and (iii) the aggregate of all Secured Indebtedness then outstanding (not including in this computation Secured Indebtedness if this Security is secured equally and ratably with (or prior to) such Secured Indebtedness) would not exceed 10% of Consolidated Net Tangible Assets, or (b) an amount equal to the greater of (i) the net proceeds to the Company or the Restricted Subsidiary of the sale of the Principal Property sold and leased back pursuant to such Sale and Leaseback Transaction and (ii) the amount of Attributable Debt to be outstanding pursuant to such Sale and Leaseback Transaction is applied to the retirement of Funded Debt of the Company or any Restricted Subsidiaries (other than Funded Debt that is subordinate to this Security or is owing to the Company or any Restricted Subsidiaries or is scheduled to mature within one year after consummation of such Sale and Leaseback Transaction) within 180 days after the consummation of such Sale and Leaseback Transaction.
Default in the performance, or breach, of either of the covenants set forth in the preceding two paragraphs will be an Event of Default under Section 5.01 of the Indenture, and the covenants set forth in the preceding two paragraphs will be subject to defeasance in accordance with Section 13.03 of the Indenture.
Attributable Debt means, as of the date of its determination, the present value (discounted semiannually at an interest rate of 7.0% per annum) of the obligation of a lessee for rental payments pursuant to any Sale and Leaseback Transaction (reduced by the amount of the rental obligations of any sublessee of all or part of the same property) during the remaining term of such Sale and Leaseback Transaction (including any period for which the lease relating thereto has been extended), such rental payments not to include amounts payable by the lessee for maintenance and repairs, insurance, taxes, assessments and similar charges and for contingent rents (such as those based on sales). In the case of any Sale and Leaseback Transaction in which the lease is terminable by the lessee upon the payment of a penalty, such rental payments shall be considered for purposes of this definition to be the lesser of the discounted values of (a) the rental payments to be paid under such Sale and Leaseback Transaction until the first date (after the date of such determination) upon which it may be so terminated plus the then applicable penalty upon such termination, and (b) the rental payments required to be paid during the remaining term of such Sale and Leaseback Transaction (assuming such termination provision is not exercised).
Capitalized Lease Obligation means any obligation to pay rent or other amounts under a lease of (or other agreement conveying the right to use) real or personal property that is required to be classified and accounted for as a capital lease obligation under generally accepted accounting principles, and, for the purposes of this Security, the amount of such obligation at any date shall be the capitalized amount thereof at such date, determined in accordance with such principles.

In no event shall the foregoing provisions be interpreted to mean that the same Indebtedness is included more than once in the calculation of Secured Indebtedness as that term is used in this Security, nor shall their operation cause this result.
If an Event of Default with respect to Securities of this series shall occur and be continuing, the principal of the Securities of this series may be declared due and payable in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture.
The Indenture permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Company and the rights of the Holders of the Securities of each series issued under the Indenture at any time by the Company and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Securities at the time Outstanding of each series to be affected. The Indenture also contains provisions permitting the Holders of specified percentages in aggregate principal amount of the Securities of each series at the time Outstanding, on behalf of the Holders of all Securities of such series, to waive compliance by the Company with certain provisions of the Indenture and certain past defaults under the Indenture and their consequences. Any such consent or waiver by the Holder of this Security shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Security and of any Security issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Security.
As provided in and subject to the provisions of the Indenture, the Holder of this Security shall not have the right to institute any proceeding with respect to the Indenture or for the appointment of a receiver or trustee or for any other remedy thereunder, unless such Holder shall have previously given the Trustee written notice of a continuing Event of Default with respect to the Securities of this series, the Holders of not less than 25% in principal amount of the Securities of this series at the time Outstanding shall have made a written request to the Trustee to institute proceedings in respect of such Event of Default as Trustee and offered the Trustee indemnity satisfactory to the trustee, and the Trustee shall not have received from the Holders of a majority in principal amount of Securities of this series at the time Outstanding a direction inconsistent with such request, and shall have failed to institute any such proceeding for 60 days after receipt of such notice, request and offer of indemnity. The foregoing shall not apply to any suit instituted by the Holder of this Security for the enforcement of any payment or delivery of the Maturity Consideration hereof or any premium or interest hereon on or after the respective due dates expressed herein.
No reference herein to the Indenture and no provision of this Security or of the Indenture shall affect or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the Maturity Consideration and interest on this Security at the times, place and rate, and in the manner, herein prescribed.
As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations set forth therein and in this Security, the transfer of this Security is registrable in the Security Register upon surrender of this Security for registration of transfer at the office or agency of the Company in any place where the Maturity Consideration and interest on this Security are payable, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Company and the Security Registrar duly executed by the Holder hereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing, and thereupon one or more new Securities of this series and of like tenor, of authorized denominations and for the same aggregate principal amount, will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees.
The Securities will be issued only in registered form without coupons, in denominations of $2,000 or integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof. As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations set forth therein, Securities of this series are exchangeable for a like aggregate principal amount of Securities of this series and of like tenor in different authorized denomination, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same. No service charge shall be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Company may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any transfer tax or similar governmental charge payable in connection therewith.
Prior to due presentment of this Security for registration of transfer, the Company, the Trustee and any agent of the Company or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Security is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Security be overdue, and neither the Company, the Trustee nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
The Indenture contains provisions whereby (i) the Company may be discharged from its obligations with respect to the Securities (subject to certain exceptions) or (ii) the Company may be released from its obligation under specified covenants and agreements in the Indenture, in each case if the Company irrevocably deposits with the Trustee money or U.S. Government Obligations sufficient to pay and discharge the entire indebtedness on all Securities of this series, and satisfies certain other conditions, all as more fully provided in the Indenture.
This Security shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without giving effect to principles of conflicts of laws of such state.
All terms used in this Security which are defined in the Indenture shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Indenture.
