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 November 21, 2017 (herein called the Indenture, which term shall have the meaning assigned to it in such instrument), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., 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, initially limited in aggregate principal amount to $750,000,000.
The Securities of this series are subject to redemption at any time, upon not less than 10 days and not more than 60 days prior written notice by mail, as a whole or from time to time in part, at the election of the Company, on any date prior to February 15, 2026 (the Par Call Date) at a Redemption Price equal to the greater of (i) 100% of the principal amount of the Securities to be redeemed and (ii) the sum of the present values of the Remaining Scheduled Payments (as defined below) of the Securities to be redeemed (assuming that such Security matured on its Par Call Date), discounted to the date of redemption on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Treasury Rate (as defined below), plus 15 basis points, plus, in each case, accrued and unpaid interest thereon to the redemption date.
On or after the Par Call Date, the Securities are redeemable at the Companys option, in whole at any time or in part from time to time, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Securities to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount of such Securities being redeemed to such redemption date.
Treasury Rate means, for any redemption date, the rate per annum equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity, computed by the Company as of the second Business Day immediately preceding that redemption date, of the applicable Comparable Treasury Issue, assuming a price for such Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the applicable Comparable Treasury Price for that redemption date.
Comparable Treasury Issue means the United States Treasury security selected by an Independent Investment Banker as having a maturity comparable to the remaining term of the applicable Securities to be redeemed (assuming that such Security matured on its Par Call Date) that would be utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities of comparable maturity to the remaining term of the applicable Securities to be redeemed.
Comparable Treasury Price means, with respect to any redemption date, (1) the average, as determined by the Company, of the Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations for such redemption date, after excluding the highest and lowest of the Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, or (2) if the Company obtains fewer than four Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, the average of all of such quotations.
Independent Investment Banker means the Reference Treasury Dealer appointed by the Company.
Reference Treasury Dealer means any of Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Barclays Capital Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and their respective successors, or if at any time any of the above is not a primary U.S. Government securities dealer, any other nationally recognized investment banking firm selected by the Company that is a primary U.S. Government securities dealer, as well as three other nationally recognized investment banking firms selected by the Company that are primary U.S. Government securities dealers.
Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations means, with respect to each Reference Treasury Dealer and any redemption date, the average, as determined by the Company, of the bid and asked prices for the applicable Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed in each case as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in writing to the Company by such Reference Treasury Dealer at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the third Business Day preceding such redemption date.
Remaining Scheduled Payments means the remaining scheduled payments of the principal thereof and interest thereon that would be due after the related redemption date for such redemption; provided, however, that, if such redemption date is not an Interest Payment Date, the amount of the next succeeding scheduled interest payment thereon will be reduced by the amount of interest accrued thereon to such redemption date.
In the event of redemption of this Security in part only, a new Security or Securities of this series and of like tenor for the unredeemed portion hereof will be issued in the name of the Holder hereof upon the cancellation hereof.
If a Change of Control Triggering Event (defined below) occurs, unless the Company has exercised its right to redeem the Securities in full, as described above, it will make an offer to each holder of the Securities (the Change of Control Offer) to repurchase any and all (equal to $1,000 or an integral multiple thereof) of such holders Securities at a repurchase price in cash equal to 101% of the principal amount of the Securities repurchased plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon, to the date of purchase (the Change of Control Payment). Within 30 days following any Change of Control Triggering Event, the Company will be required to mail a notice to holders of Securities describing the transaction or transactions that constitute the Change of Control Triggering Event and offering to repurchase the Securities on the date specified in the notice, which date will be no earlier than 30 days and no later than 60 days from the date such notice is mailed (the Change of Control Payment Date), pursuant to the procedures required by the Securities and described in such notice. The Company will comply with the requirements of Rule 14e-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), and any other securities laws and regulations thereunder to the extent those laws and regulations are applicable in connection with the repurchase of the Securities as a result of a Change of Control Triggering Event. To the extent that the provisions of any securities laws or regulations conflict with the Change of Control repurchase provisions of the Securities, the Company will be required to comply with the applicable securities laws and regulations and will not be deemed to have breached the Companys obligations under the Change of Control repurchase provisions of the Securities by virtue of such conflicts.
On the Change of Control Payment Date, the Company will be required, to the extent lawful, to:
accept for payment all Securities or portions of Securities properly tendered pursuant to the Change of Control Offer;
deposit with the paying agent an amount equal to the Change of Control Payment in respect of all Securities or portions of Securities properly tendered; and
deliver or cause to be delivered to the Trustee the Securities properly accepted, together with an Officers Certificate stating the principal amount of Securities or portions of Securities being purchased.
Below Investment Grade Rating Event means the Securities are rated below an Investment Grade Rating by each of the Rating Agencies (as defined below) on any date from the date of the public notice of an arrangement that could reasonably be expected to result in a Change of Control until the end of the 60-day period following public notice of the occurrence of the Change of Control (which 60-day period shall be extended so long as the rating of the Securities is under publicly announced consideration for possible downgrade by any of the Rating Agencies); provided, however, that a Below Investment Grade Rating Event otherwise arising by virtue of a particular reduction in rating will not be deemed to have occurred in respect of a particular Change of Control Triggering Event (and thus will not be deemed a Below Investment Grade Rating Event for purposes of the definition of Change of Control Triggering Event) if the rating agencies making the reduction in rating to which this definition would otherwise apply do not announce or publicly confirm or inform the Trustee in writing at the Companys request that the reduction was the result, in whole or in part, of any event or circumstance comprised of or arising as a result of, or in respect of, the applicable Change of Control (whether or not the applicable Change of Control has occurred at the time of the Below Investment Grade Rating Event).
Change of Control means the occurrence of any of the following: (1) direct or indirect sale, transfer, conveyance or other disposition (other than by way of merger or consolidation), in one or a series of related transactions, of all or substantially all of the properties or assets of the Company and its subsidiaries taken as a whole to any person (as that term is used in Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act) other than to the Company or one of its subsidiaries; (2) the consummation of any transaction (including, without limitation, any merger or consolidation) the result of which is that any person (as that term is used in Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act) becomes the beneficial owner, directly or indirectly, of more than 50% of the then outstanding number of shares of the Companys voting stock; or (3) the first day on which a majority of the members of the Companys Board of Directors are not Continuing Directors (as defined below); provided, however, that a transaction will not be deemed to involve a Change of Control if the Company becomes a wholly owned subsidiary of a holding company and the holders of the voting stock of such holding company immediately following that transaction are substantially the same as the holders of the Companys voting stock immediately prior to that transaction. For purposes of this definition, voting stock means capital stock of any class or kind the holders of which are ordinarily, in the absence of contingencies, entitled to vote for the election of directors (or persons performing similar functions) of the Company, even if the right to vote has been suspended by the happening of such a contingency.
Change of Control Triggering Event means the occurrence of both a Change of Control and a Below Investment Grade Rating Event.
Continuing Directors means, as of any date of determination, any member of the Board of Directors of the Company who (1) was a member of the Board of Directors of the Company on the date of the issuance of the Securities; or (2) was nominated for election or elected to the Board of Directors of the Company with the approval of a majority of the Continuing Directors who were members of such Board of Directors of the Company at the time of such nomination or election (either by specific vote or by approval of the Companys proxy statement in which such member was named as a nominee for election as a director, without objection to such nomination).
Fitch means Fitch Ratings, Inc.
Investment Grade Rating means a rating by Moodys (as defined below) equal to or higher than Baa3 (or the equivalent under a successor rating category of Moodys), a rating by S&P (as defined below) equal to or higher than BBB- (or the equivalent under any successor rating category of S&P) or a rating by Fitch equal to or higher than BBB- (or the equivalent under any successor rating category of Fitch), or a rating by a replacement Rating Agency, if applicable, substantially equivalent to the foregoing ratings or higher.
Moodys means Moodys Investors Service, Inc.
Rating Agencies means (1) Moodys, S&P and Fitch; and (2) if any or all of Moodys, S&P or Fitch ceases to rate the Securities or fails to make a rating of the Securities publicly available for reasons outside of the Companys control, a nationally recognized statistical rating organization within the meaning of Rule 15c3-1(c)(2)(vi)(F) under the Exchange Act, selected by the Company (as certified by a resolution of the Companys Board of Directors) as a replacement agency for any of Moodys, S&P or Fitch, or all of them, as the case may be.
S&P means S&P Global Ratings, a division of S&P Global Inc.

The foregoing shall not apply to any suit instituted by the Holder of this Security for the enforcement of any payment of principal 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 alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of and any premium and interest on this Security at the times, place and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed.
