RECITALS OF THE COMPANY
WHEREAS, the Company and the Trustee are parties to an Indenture, dated as of March 9, 2015 (the Base Indenture and, as supplemented by this Supplemental Indenture, the Indenture), relating to the issuance from time to time by the Company of its Securities on terms to be specified at the time of issuance;
WHEREAS, Sections 2.01, 2.03 and 9.01(7) of the Base Indenture provides that the Company may enter into a supplemental indenture to establish the form or terms of Securities under the Base Indenture without the consent of any Holders;
WHEREAS, the Company desires to issue a new series of Securities, and has duly authorized the creation and issuance of such Securities and the execution and delivery of this Supplemental Indenture to modify the Base Indenture and provide certain additional provisions as hereinafter described;
WHEREAS, the parties hereto deem it advisable to enter into this Supplemental Indenture for the purpose of establishing the form and terms of such Securities and providing for the rights, obligations and duties of the Trustee with respect to such Securities; and
WHEREAS, all conditions and requirements of the Base Indenture necessary to make this Supplemental Indenture a valid, binding and legal instrument in accordance with its terms have been performed and fulfilled by the parties hereto.
NOW, THEREFORE, for and in consideration of the premises and other good and valuable consideration, receipt of which is hereby acknowledged by the parties hereto, the parties hereto agree as follows:
Section 1.01 Definitions.
(a) For all purposes of this Supplemental Indenture, except as otherwise expressly provided or unless the context otherwise requires:
Appropriate Federal Banking Agency means the appropriate federal banking agency with respect to the Company as that term is defined in Section 3(q) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act or any successor provision.
Definitive Note means a certificated Subordinated Note.
Notes Custodian means the custodian with respect to a Global Note (as appointed by the Depositary), or any successor Person thereto and shall initially be the Trustee.
Regulatory Capital Treatment Event means the good faith determination by the Company that, as a result of (i) any amendment to, or change in, the laws, rules or regulations of the United States (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any agency or instrumentality of the United States, including the Federal Reserve and other Appropriate Federal Banking Agencies) or any political subdivision of or in the United States that is enacted or becomes effective after the initial issuance of the Subordinated Notes, or (ii) any final official administrative decision or judicial decision or administrative action or other official pronouncement interpreting or applying those laws, rules or regulations or policies with respect thereto that is made, adopted, approved or effective after the initial issuance of the Subordinated Notes, there is more than an insubstantial risk that the Company will not be entitled to treat the Subordinated Notes then outstanding as Tier 2 Capital (or its equivalent) for purposes of the capital adequacy rules of the Federal Reserve (or, as and if applicable, the capital adequacy rules or regulations of any successor Appropriate Federal Banking Agency) as then in effect and applicable, for so long as any Subordinated Note is outstanding.
Tax Event means the receipt by the Company of an opinion of independent tax counsel to the effect that as a result of any amendment to, or change (including any announced prospective change) in, the laws or any regulations of the United States or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein, or as a result of any official administrative pronouncement or judicial decision interpreting or applying such laws or regulations (each of the above, a change of tax law), which amendment or change is effective or which pronouncement or decision is announced on or after the date of the issuance of the Subordinated Notes, there is more than an insubstantial risk that the interest payable on the Subordinated Notes is not, or within 90 days of receipt of such opinion, will not be, deductible by the Company, in whole or in part, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, provided that a change of tax law under section 163(j) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (section 163(j)) (including any amendment to section 163(j), and any amendment to or the issuance of regulations or another official administrative pronouncement under section 163(j)), shall not give rise to a Tax Event unless, in the opinion of independent tax counsel, the change of tax law under section 163(j) limits, defers or prohibits the deduction of interest on the Subordinated Notes in a manner or to an extent different from interest on senior debt obligations of the Company by reason of the specific characteristics of the Subordinated Notes.
(b) The terms defined in this Section have the meanings assigned to them in this Section and include the plural as well as the singular.
(c) Terms used herein without definition shall have the meanings specified in the Base Indenture.
(d) All references to Articles and Sections, unless otherwise specified, refer to the corresponding Articles and Sections of this Supplemental Indenture.
(e) The terms herein, hereof, hereunder and other words of similar import refer to this Supplemental Indenture as a whole and not to any particular Article, Section or other subdivision.
