The Company will pay interest semi-annually on the Interest Payment Dates specified above, commencing with the Interest Payment Date immediately following the Original Issue Date specified above, and on the Stated Maturity or any earlier redemption date or optional repayment date specified above (such Stated Maturity and any earlier redemption date or optional repayment date or any other date that the principal amount hereof or an installment thereof is due and payable, whether by declaration of acceleration pursuant to the Indenture or otherwise, being referred to hereinafter as a Maturity with respect to the portion of the principal amount payable on such date); provided that if the Original Issue Date specified above is after a Regular Record Date as specified above and on or before the related Interest Payment Date, interest payments will commence on the next succeeding Interest Payment Date. Interest on this Note will accrue from and including the immediately preceding Interest Payment Date in respect of which interest has been paid or made available for payment or, if no interest has been paid or made available for payment, from and including the Original Issue Date specified above to, but excluding, the related Interest Payment Date or Maturity, as the case may be. If any Interest Payment Date or the Maturity would fall on a day that is not a Business Day (as defined below), the related payment of principal, premium, if any, and/or interest will be made the next succeeding Business Day with full force and effect as if the payment had been made on such Interest Payment Date or at Maturity, and no interest on such payment shall accrue on the amount payable for the period from and after such Interest Payment Date or Maturity, as the case may be, to the date of such payment on the next succeeding Business Day. The interest so payable, and punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date will, as provided in the Indenture, be paid to the Person in whose name this Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on the Regular Record Date for such interest (whether or not a Business Day) next preceding such Interest Payment Date; provided, however, that interest payable at Maturity shall be payable to the Person to whom the principal hereof is payable. Any such interest not so punctually paid or duly provided for shall forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on such Regular Record Date and may either be paid to the Person in whose name this Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest to be fixed by the Trustee, notice whereof shall be given to the Holder of this Note not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date, or be paid at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange upon which the Notes may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, all as more fully provided in the Indenture. Payment of principal, premium, if any, and interest payable at Maturity of this Note will be made in immediately available funds if this Note is presented and surrendered (in the case of any payment on any Holders Optional Repayment Date, together with the Option to Elect Repayment form attached hereto duly completed) at the office or agency of the Company maintained for that purpose in The City of New York (currently the corporate trust office of the Paying Agent (as defined below) in The City of New York) in time for payment to be made in such funds in accordance with the normal procedures of Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as paying agent, or such other paying agent, if any, specified in an Addendum attached hereto (the Paying Agent, which term includes any successor paying agent under the Indenture); provided, however, that if the Specified Currency of such payment is other than United States dollars and such payment is to be made in the Specified Currency in accordance with the provisions set forth below, such payment will be made by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account with a bank designated by the Holder hereof at least fifteen days prior to the Maturity, provided that such bank has appropriate facilities therefor and that this Note is presented and surrendered and, if applicable, a duly completed Option to Elect Repayment form is delivered at the aforementioned office of the Paying Agent in time for the Paying Agent to make such payment in such funds in accordance with its normal procedures. [Insert if this Note is a Global Security Payment of the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on this Note in United States dollars will be made by transfer of immediately available funds to the Depositary or its nominee.] [Insert if this Note is a Certificated Security Payments of interest on this Note (other than interest due at Maturity) will be made by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto as such address shall appear in the Security Register. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a holder of U.S.$10,000,000 (or, if the Specified Currency is other than United States dollars, the equivalent thereof in the Specified Currency) or more in aggregate principal amount of Notes in certificated form (whether having identical or different terms and provisions) shall be entitled to receive such payment of interest by wire transfer of immediately available funds, but only if appropriate payment instructions have been received in writing by the Paying Agent not less than fifteen days before the applicable Interest Payment Date. Any such wire transfer instructions received by the Paying Agent shall remain in effect until revoked by the Holder hereof.]
Business Day means any day, other than a Saturday or Sunday, that is neither a legal holiday nor a day on which commercial banks are authorized or required by law, regulation or executive order to close in The City of New York and is also a day on which commercial banks are open for business in London; provided, however, that, if the Specified Currency above is not United States dollars, the day is also not a day on which commercial banks are authorized or required by law, regulation or executive order to close in the Principal Financial Center (as defined below) of the country issuing the Specified Currency or, if the Specified Currency is euro, the day is also a TARGET2 Business Day (as defined below).
Principal Financial Center as used in this Note means the capital city of the country issuing the Specified Currency, except, that with respect to United States dollars, Australian dollars, Canadian dollars, euros, New Zealand dollars, South African rand and Swiss francs, the Principal Financial Center will be The City of New York, Sydney, Toronto, Brussels, Wellington, Johannesburg and Zurich, respectively.
TARGET2 Business Day means any day on which the Trans-European Automated Real-Time Gross Settlement Express Transfer (TARGET2) System or any successor thereto is open.
Unless otherwise specified herein, payments of principal of, premium, if any, and interest on, this Note will be made in the applicable Specified Currency, provided, however, that if this Note is denominated in a Specified Currency other than United States dollars, payments of principal of , premium, if any, and interest on, this Note will [Insert if this Note is a Global Security be made in United States dollars unless the Depositary notifies the Paying Agent, prior to the fifth Business Day after the applicable Regular Record Date for such payment or on or prior to the tenth Business Day prior to Maturity, as the case may be (or prior to such other dates as may then be required under the Depositarys customary procedures), of the amount of any such payment to be made in the Specified Currency and the applicable wire transfer instructions for such amount, in which case the Paying Agent shall use such wire instructions to pay such amount in the Specified Currency.][Insert if this Note is a Certificated Security be made in United States dollars if the Person entitled to receive such payment transmits a written request for such payment to be made in United States dollars to the office of the Paying Agent in The City of New York, on or before the applicable Regular Record Date or at least fifteen calendar days before Maturity, as the case may be. Such written request may be mailed, hand delivered, or sent by facsimile transmission. Any such request made with respect to any payment on this Note payable to a particular Holder will remain in effect for all later payments on this Note payable to such Holder, unless such request is revoked by written notice to the Paying Agent on or before the applicable Regular Record Date or at least fifteen calendar days before Maturity, as the case may be, in which case such revocation shall be effective for such and all later payments.]
If any payment under this Note is to be made in United States dollars in accordance with the provisions of the immediately preceding paragraph, such United States dollar amount will be based upon the highest bid quotation received by the Exchange Rate Agent specified above as of 11:00 A.M., New York City time, on the second Business Day preceding the applicable payment date. The Exchange Agent shall obtain the highest bid quotation by asking three recognized foreign exchange dealers in The City of New York selected by the Company (one of whom may be the Exchange Rate Agent) for their bid quotations for the purchase of the Specified Currency in exchange for United States dollars for settlement on such payment date in the aggregate amount of such Specified Currency payable on such payment date to all Holders of Notes who are scheduled to receive United States dollar payments on such payment date, and at which the applicable dealer commits to execute a contract. If three such bid quotations are not available on such second Business Day, such payment will be made in the Specified Currency for such payment. All currency exchange costs associated with any payment in United States dollars on this Note will be borne by the Holder of this Note, by deduction from such payment.
Notwithstanding anything in the foregoing to the contrary, if the Specified Currency is not available, in the Companys good faith judgment, for any amount payable on this Note on the applicable payment date (including at Maturity) due to the imposition of exchange controls or any other circumstances beyond the control of the Company, or is no longer used by the government of the country issuing such currency or for the settlement of transactions by public institutions of or within the international banking community, the Company will be entitled to satisfy its
obligation to pay such amount in such Specified Currency by making such payment in United States dollars. Unless otherwise specified in an Addendum attached hereto, the amount of such payment in United States dollars shall be determined on the basis of the Market Exchange Rate (as defined below) as computed by the Exchange Rate Agent on the second Business Day preceding the applicable payment date, or if the Market Exchange Rate is not available on the second Business Day preceding the applicable payment date, on the basis of the most recently available Market Exchange Rate on or preceding the applicable payment date, or as otherwise determined by the Company in good faith, if the foregoing is impracticable. The Market Exchange Rate for a Specified Currency other than United States dollars means the noon dollar buying rate for cable transfers in The City of New York for such Specified Currency as certified for custom purposes (or, if not so certified, as otherwise determined) by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Any payment made under such circumstances in United States dollars where the required payment is in other than United States dollars will not constitute a default under the Indenture or this Note.
If this Note is denominated in a Specified Currency other than United States dollars, in the event of an official redenomination of such Specified Currency (including, without limitation, an official redenomination of such Specified Currency that is a composite currency) the obligations of the Company with respect to payments on this Note denominated in such Specified Currency shall, in all cases, be regarded immediately following such redenomination as providing for the payment of that amount of redenominated currency representing the amount of such obligations immediately before such redenomination. No adjustment will be made to any amount payable under this Note as a result of (a) any change in the value of such Specified Currency relative to any other currency due solely to fluctuations in exchange rates or (b) any redenomination of any component currency of any composite currency (unless such composite currency is itself officially redenominated). If the official unit of any component currency is altered by way of combination or subdivision, the number of units of that currency as a component shall be divided or multiplied in the same proportion. If two or more component currencies are consolidated into a single currency, the amounts of those currencies as components shall be replaced by an amount in such single currency. If any component currency is divided into two or more currencies, the amount of that original component currency as a component shall be replaced by the amounts of such two or more currencies having an aggregate value on the date of division equal to the amount of the former component currency immediately before such division.
Reference is hereby made to the further provisions of this Note set forth on the reverse hereof, which further provisions will for all purposes have the same effect as if set forth at this place.
Unless the certificate of authentication hereon has been manually executed by or on behalf of the Trustee under the Indenture, this Note will not be entitled to any benefits under the Indenture or be valid or obligatory for any purpose.
References herein to the Note, hereof, herein and comparable terms shall include any Addendum hereto if any Addendum is specified under Other Provisions above.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company has caused this Note to be duly executed, manually or in facsimile.

This Note is one of the series of the Securities designated as the Medium-Term Notes, Series A (herein called the Notes). The Notes may bear different dates and mature at different times, may bear interest at different rates or may not bear interest and may otherwise vary, all as provided in the Indenture.
Any provision contained herein with respect to the calculation of the rate of interest applicable to this Note, its payment dates or any other matter relating hereto may be modified as specified in an Addendum relating hereto if so specified above.
This Note may be subject to repayment at the option of the Holder prior to the Stated Maturity specified above on the Holders Optional Repayment Date(s), if any, specified above. If no Holders Optional Repayment Dates are specified above, this Note may not be so repaid at the option of the Holder hereof prior to the Stated Maturity. On any Holders Optional Repayment Date, this Note will be repayable in whole or in part in increments of $1,000 unless otherwise specified on the face hereof (provided that any remaining principal amount shall be an authorized denomination) at the option of the Holder hereof at a repayment price equal to 100% of the principal amount to be repaid (or, if the Discount Note box is checked above, such lesser amount as is provided in an Addendum attached hereto), together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but excluding, the date of repayment, subject to the terms of any applicable Addendum hereto. For this Note to be repaid in whole or in part at the option of the Holder hereof, this Note must be received, with the form entitled Option to Elect Repayment set forth below (and also available at the office of the Paying Agent) duly completed, by the Paying Agent at its corporate trust office in The City of New York (currently at 60 Wall Street, Trust and Agency Services, 27th Floor, New York, New York 10005), or such address which the Company shall from time to time notify the Holders of the Notes, not more than 60 nor less than 30 days prior to a Holders Optional Repayment Date. This Note must be received by the Paying Agent by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the last day for the giving of such notice. Exercise of such repayment option by the Holder hereof shall be irrevocable except to the extent permitted in connection with an interest rate reset described below.
This Note may be redeemed at the option of the Company on any date on or after the Initial Redemption Date (any date fixed for such redemption being the Redemption Date), if any, specified above, and prior to the Stated Maturity specified above, in whole, or from time to time in part (if so specified above), in increments of $1,000 unless otherwise specified on the face hereof (provided that any remaining principal amount shall be an authorized denomination) at the Redemption Price (as defined below), together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but excluding, the Redemption Date, upon providing written notice of such redemption not more than 60 days nor less than 30 days prior to the Redemption Date to the Holder of this Note at such Holders address appearing in the Security Register, all as provided in the Indenture. Unless otherwise specified above, the Redemption Price shall be the Initial Redemption Percentage specified on the face hereof (as adjusted by the Annual Redemption Percentage Reduction, if any, specified on the face hereof) multiplied by the unpaid principal amount of this Note to be redeemed. The Initial Redemption Percentage shall decline at each anniversary of the Initial Redemption Date by the Annual Redemption Percentage Reduction, if any, until the Redemption Price is 100% of the unpaid principal amount of this Note to be redeemed. If less than all of the Notes having Equivalent Terms are to be redeemed, the Trustee shall select, not more than 60 days nor less than 30 days prior to the Redemption Date, by such method as the Trustee shall deem fair and appropriate in accordance with the procedures of the Depositary, from Notes that are subject to redemption pursuant to the terms thereof, the Note or Notes, or portion or portions thereof, to be redeemed.

If the Company has the option with respect to this Note to reset the interest rate, such option will be indicated on the face hereof, together with (i) the date or dates on which such interest rate may be reset (each an Optional Reset Date) and (ii) the basis or formula, if any, for such resetting. Unless otherwise specified in an Addendum attached hereto, the Company may exercise such option by notifying the Trustee of such exercise at least 45 but not more than 60 days prior to an Optional Reset Date. Not later than 40 days prior to such Optional Reset Date, the Trustee will mail to the Holder hereof a notice (the Reset Notice), first class, postage prepaid, setting forth (i) the election of the Company to reset the interest rate, (ii) such new interest rate, and (iii) the provisions, if any, for redemption during the period from such Optional Reset Date to the next Optional Reset Date or, if there is no such next Optional Reset Date, to the Stated Maturity of this Note (each such period a Subsequent Interest Period), including the date or dates on which or the period or periods during which and the price or prices at which such redemption may occur during such Subsequent Interest Period.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, not later than 20 days prior to an Optional Reset Date, the Company may, at its option, revoke the interest rate provided for in the Reset Notice and establish a higher interest rate for the Subsequent Interest Period commencing on such Optional Reset Date by mailing or causing the Trustee to mail notice of such higher interest rate first class, postage prepaid, to the Holder hereof. Such notice shall be irrevocable. If the interest rate is reset on an Optional Reset Date this Note will bear such higher interest rate.
If the Company elects to reset the interest rate of this Note, the Holder hereof will have the option to elect repayment of this Note by the Company on any Optional Reset Date at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount hereof plus any accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but excluding, such Optional Reset Date.

The Indenture also contains provisions for defeasance of certain obligations of the Company under this Note and the Indenture and covenant defeasance of certain obligations of the Company under the Indenture.
No reference herein to the Indenture and no provision of this Note or of the Indenture shall alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional to pay the principal of, and premium, if any, and interest on, this Note at the time, place and rate, and in the coin or currency herein and in the Indenture prescribed.

Such certificated Notes shall be registered in such name or names as the Depositary shall instruct the Trustee. If certificated Notes are so delivered, the Company may make such changes to the form of this Note as are necessary or appropriate to allow for the issuance of such certificated Notes.]

This Note is not subject to, or entitled to the benefits of, any sinking fund.
