This is one of the Securities of the series designated herein and referred to in the within-mentioned Indenture.
U.S. BANK NATIONAL ASSOCIATION
[Signature Page to Global Note]
[REVERSE OF SECURITY]
This Security is one of a duly authorized issue of Securities of the Company designated as its “2.200% Notes Due 2032” (herein called the “Securities”), initially limited in aggregate principal amount to $550,000,000 issued and to be issued under an Indenture, dated as of January 15, 1997, as supplemented by the Fifth Supplemental Indenture, dated the date hereof, between the Company and U.S. Bank National Association (as successor in interest to State Street Bank and Trust Company, as successor in interest to Fleet National Bank), as Trustee, as it may be amended and supplemented from time to time (collectively, the “Indenture”), to which indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made 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.
The Securities shall be redeemable, in whole or in part, at the Company’s option at any time (a “Redemption Date”). At any time prior to December 1, 2031 (the “Par Call Date”), the redemption price will be equal to the greater of (i) 100% of the principal amount of any Securities being redeemed; or (ii) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest thereon that would be due if the Securities matured on the Par Call Date (exclusive of interest accrued to the Redemption Date) discounted to the Redemption Date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Treasury Rate (as defined below) plus 20 basis points. At any time on or after the Par Call Date, the Securities will be redeemable in whole or in part, at the Company’s option, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Securities to be redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest on the Securities to be redeemed to the Redemption Date. In each case, accrued and unpaid interest, if any, will be paid to the Redemption Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, installments of interest on Securities that are due and payable on Interest Payment Dates falling on or prior to a Redemption Date will be payable on the Interest Payment Date to the Holders as of the close of business on the relevant record date in accordance with the Securities and the Indenture. The Company will mail notice by first-class mail of any redemption at least 15 days, but not more than 60 days, before the Redemption Date to each Holder of the Securities to be redeemed. At the Company’s option, a notice of redemption may be conditioned on the satisfaction of one or more conditions. Once the notice is delivered (or, in the event of a notice of conditional redemption, once the conditions set forth therein are satisfied), the Securities called for redemption will become due and payable on the Redemption Date and at the applicable redemption price, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the Redemption Date. On and after the Redemption Date, interest will cease to accrue on the Securities or any portion of the Securities called for redemption (unless the Company defaults in the payment of the applicable redemption price and accrued interest). On or before the Redemption Date, the Company will deposit with a paying agent (or the Trustee) money sufficient to pay the applicable redemption price of and accrued interest on the Securities to be redeemed on the Redemption Date. If less than all of the Securities are to be redeemed, and the Securities are Global Securities, the Securities to be redeemed will be selected by the Depositary Trust Company (“DTC”), as the Depositary by lot. If the Securities to be redeemed are not Global Securities then held by the DTC, the Securities to be redeemed will be selected by the Trustee by a method the Trustee deems to be fair and appropriate.
“Comparable Treasury Issue” means the United States Treasury security selected by the Independent Investment Banker as having a maturity comparable to the remaining term of the Securities to be redeemed that would be used, 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 Securities (assuming, for this purpose, that the Securities matured on the Par Call Date).
“Comparable Treasury Price” means, with respect to any Redemption Date, (A) the average of the Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations for such Redemption Date, after excluding the highest and lowest of such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, or (B) if the Trustee is provided with fewer than four such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, the average of all such quotations or (C) if only one Reference Treasury Dealer Quotation is received, such quotation.
“Independent Investment Banker” means one of the Reference Treasury Dealers or another independent investment banking institution of national standing appointed by the Company.
“Reference Treasury Dealer” means J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, BofA Securities, Inc., Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and one other treasury dealer selected by the Company, and their respective successors; provided, however, that if any of the foregoing shall cease to be a primary U.S. Government securities dealer (each, a “Primary Treasury Dealer”), the Company will substitute therefor another nationally recognized investment banking firm that is a Primary Treasury Dealer.
“Reference Treasury Dealer Quotation” means, with respect to each Reference Treasury Dealer and any Redemption Date, the average of the bid and asked prices for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed in each case as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in writing and the Trustee by such Reference Treasury Dealer at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the third business day preceding such Redemption Date.
“Treasury Rate” means, with respect to any Redemption Date, the rate per annum equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue, assuming a price for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the Comparable Treasury Price for such Redemption Date.
Upon the occurrence of a Change of Control Triggering Event (as defined below), the Company shall notify the Trustee, and make an offer (a “Change of Control Offer”) to each Holder to repurchase all or any part (equal to $2,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof) of each Holder’s Securities of such series at a purchase price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of purchase (the “Change of Control Payment”). Within 30 days following any Change of Control Triggering Event, the Company shall, or shall cause the Trustee to, mail a notice to each Holder describing the transaction or transactions that constitute the Change of Control Triggering Event and stating: (1) that the Change of Control Offer is being made pursuant to the terms of this Supplemental Indenture and that all Securities of such series properly tendered will be accepted for payment; (2) the purchase price and the purchase date, which shall be no earlier than 15 days and no later than 60 days from the date such notice is mailed (the “Change of Control Payment Date”); (3) that any Security of such series not tendered will continue to accrue interest; (4) that, unless the Company defaults in the payment of the Change of Control Payment, all Securities of such series accepted for payment pursuant to the Change of Control Offer shall cease to accrue interest after the Change of Control Payment Date; (5) that Holders electing to have any Securities of such series, with the form entitled “Option of Holder to Elect Purchase” attached as Exhibit 1 to the Security completed, purchased pursuant to a Change of Control Offer will be required to surrender such Securities to the Trustee or paying agent at the address specified in the notice prior to the close of business on the third Business Day preceding the Change of Control Payment Date; (6) that Holders will be entitled to withdraw their election if the Trustee or paying agent receives, not later than the close of business on the second Business Day preceding the Change of Control Payment Date, a telegram, telex, facsimile transmission or letter setting forth the name of the Holder, the principal amount of Securities of such series delivered for purchase, and a statement that such Holder is withdrawing his election to have such Securities purchased; and (7) that Holders whose Securities of such series are being purchased only in part will be issued new Securities equal in principal amount to the unpurchased portion of the Securities surrendered, which unpurchased portion must be equal to $2,000 in principal amount or an integral multiple of $1,000 thereof. The Company shall 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 such laws and regulations are applicable in connection with the repurchase of Securities of such series in connection with a Change of Control Triggering Event. To the extent that the provisions of any securities laws or regulations conflict with the provisions of this paragraph or the Indenture, the Company will comply with the applicable securities laws and regulations and will not be deemed to have breached its obligations under this paragraph or the Indenture by virtue of such conflict.

The paying agent shall promptly mail to each Holder of Securities of such series properly tendered the Change of Control Payment for such Securities, and the Trustee shall promptly authenticate and mail (or cause to be transferred by book entry) to each Holder a new Security equal in principal amount to any unpurchased portion of the Securities surrendered by such Holder, if any; provided, that each such new Security shall be in a principal amount of $2,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000 thereof. The Company shall publicly announce the results of the Change of Control Offer on or as soon as practicable after the Change of Control Payment Date. The Company will not be required to make a Change of Control Offer upon a Change of Control Triggering Event if a third Person makes the Change of Control Offer in the manner, at the times and otherwise in compliance with the requirements set forth in this paragraph and all other provisions of the Indenture applicable to a Change of Control Offer made by the Company and purchases all Securities of this series properly tendered and not withdrawn under such Change of Control Offer.
