This is one of the Securities of the series designated therein referred to in the within-mentioned Indenture.
THE BANK OF NEW YORK MELLON TRUST COMPANY, N.A.
Dated: August 1, 2019
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 May 23, 2014 (herein called the Indenture), 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), 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. This Security is one of the series designated on the face hereof, limited in aggregate principal amount to $200,000,000 and the issuance of this Security increases the limit of the aggregate principal amount of Securities of this series to $550,000,000; provided the Company may, without the giving of notice or seeking of consent of holders of the Securities, issue additional Securities having the same ranking and the same interest rate, maturity and other terms (other than the original issue date and, in some cases, the public offering price, initial interest accrual date and initial interest payment date) as the Securities, which additional Securities will, together with the existing Securities, constitute a single series of debt securities under the Indenture. This Security shall constitute a further issuance of, and will be consolidated and form a single series with, the $350,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 4.000% Senior Notes due 2029 issued on February 1, 2019.
If any Interest Payment Date, other than the maturity date, falls on a day that is not a Business Day (as defined below), the interest payment will be postponed to the next succeeding Business Day, but such payment shall be treated as having been made on the Interest Payment Date with the same force and effect as if made on the Interest Payment Date and Holders will not be entitled to any further interest or other payments with respect to any such postponement. If the maturity date of this Security falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment of interest and principal will be made on the next succeeding Business Day with the same force and effect as if made on the maturity date and Holders will not be entitled to any further interest or other payments with respect to such postponement. Business Day means any day, other than a Saturday, a Sunday or a day in the City of New York on which banking institutions are authorized or obligated by law or executive order to close.
The Securities of this series are subject to redemption at any time or from time to time on and after November 3, 2028, as a whole or in part, at the election of the Company, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but not including, the redemption date. The Securities will not be entitled to any sinking fund.
The Indenture contains provisions for (a) defeasance at any time of the entire indebtedness evidenced by this Security along with the obligations of the Company, subject, in each case, to the exceptions set forth in Section 13.2 of the Indenture and (b) defeasance with respect to the obligations of the Company pursuant to Section 13.3 of the Indenture, in each case of (a) and (b) upon compliance by the Company with certain conditions set forth therein, which provisions apply to this Security.
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 to be affected under the Indenture at any time by the Company and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of a majority in 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 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 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.
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.
As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, 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 principal of and any premium 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 of this series are issuable only in registered form without coupons in denominations of $2,000 and any integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof. As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, Securities of this series are exchangeable for a like aggregate principal amount of Securities of this series and of like tenor of a 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 tax or other governmental charge and any other expenses then payable.
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.
If (1) the Depositary notifies the Company that it is no longer willing or able to act as a depository or clearing system for the Securities or the Depositary ceases to be registered or in good standing under the Exchange Act, and a successor depository or clearing system is not appointed within 90 days after the Company has received notice or become aware of this condition, (2) the Company, at its option, notifies the Trustee in writing that it elects to cause the issuance of the Securities in certificated form under the Indenture or (3) upon the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default, then, upon surrender by the Depositary of the Global Security, certificated Securities will be issued to each person that the Depositary identifies as the owner of the Securities represented by the Global Securities.
