HONEYWELL INTERNATIONAL INC., a Delaware corporation (the Company, which term includes any successor corporation under the Indenture described herein), for value received, hereby promises to pay to BT GLOBENET NOMINEES LIMITED or its registered assigns, the principal sum of ( ) on March 10, 2024 (the Maturity Date), and to pay interest on said principal sum annually in arrears on March 10 of each year, commencing March 10, 2021 (each such date on which the Company is required to pay interest being referred to herein as an Interest Payment Date), at the rate of 0.000% per annum from March 10, 2020, or from the most recent date in respect of which interest has been paid or duly provided for, until payment of said principal sum has been made or duly provided for.
Interest payable on any Interest Payment Date, Redemption Date (as defined below) or Maturity Date shall be the amount of interest accrued from, and including, the next preceding Interest Payment Date in respect of which interest has been paid or duly provided for (or from and including the original issue date of this Note, if no interest has been paid or duly provided for) to, but excluding, such Interest Payment Date, Redemption Date or Maturity Date, as the case may be. This payment convention is referred to as ACTUAL/ACTUAL (ICMA) as defined
in the rulebook of the International Capital Markets Association. If any Interest Payment Date falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the interest payment will be made on the next succeeding day that is a Business Day, but no additional interest will accrue as a result of the delay in payment. If the Maturity Date or any Redemption Date falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the related payment of principal, premium, if any, and interest will be made on the next succeeding Business Day as if it were made on the date such payment was due, and no interest will accrue on the amounts so payable for the period from and after such date to the next succeeding Business Day. The rights of holders of beneficial interests of Notes (as defined below) to receive the payments of interest on such Notes are subject to the applicable procedures of Clearstream Banking S.A. (Clearstream), and Euroclear Bank, SA/NV (Euroclear).
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 Notes) is registered at the close of business on the 15th calendar day (whether or not a Business Day) immediately preceding the related Interest Payment Date or, if the Notes are represented by one or more Global Securities, the close of business on the Business Day (for this purpose a day on which Clearstream and Euroclear are open for business) immediately preceding such Interest Payment Date (each being referred to herein as a Regular Record Date); provided, however, that interest payable on the Maturity Date or any Redemption Date shall be payable to the person to whom the principal shall be payable. As used herein, Business Day means any day, other than a Saturday or Sunday, (1) which is not a day on which banking institutions in The City of New York or The City of London are authorized or required by law or executive order to close and (2) on which the Trans-European Automated Real-time Gross Settlement Express Transfer system (the TARGET2 system), or any successor thereto, operates.
The payments of interest, principal and premium, if any, will be made at the office or agency of the Company maintained for that purpose in London, England, which shall initially be Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas; provided, however, that at the option of the Company, payment of interest may be made by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto as such address shall appear in the Security Register; provided further, that all payments of interest, principal and premium, if any, with respect to the Notes of this series represented by one or more Global Securities deposited with, or on behalf of, a common depositary, and registered in the name of the nominee of the common depositary for the accounts of Clearstream and Euroclear shall be made through the facilities of the common depositary.
All payments of interest, principal and premium, if any, will be made in euros. If the euro is unavailable to the Company due to the imposition of exchange controls or other circumstances beyond its control or if the euro is no longer being used by the then member states of the European Monetary Union that have adopted the euro as their currency or for the settlement of transactions by public institutions of or within the international banking community, then all payments in respect of this Note will be made in U.S. dollars until the euro is again available to the Company or so used. The amount payable on any date in euros will be converted into U.S. dollars at the rate mandated by the U.S. Federal Reserve Board as of the close of business on the second Business Day prior to the relevant payment date or, in the event the U.S. Federal Reserve Board has not mandated a rate of conversion, on the basis of the most recent U.S. dollar/euro exchange rate published in The Wall Street Journal on or prior to the second Business Day prior to the relevant payment date. Any payments in respect of the Notes so made in U.S. dollars will not constitute an event of default under the terms of this Note or the Indenture.
Initially, Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas will be the Paying Agent and the Registrar (the Note Registrar) for this Note. The Company reserves the rights at any time to remove any Paying Agent or Note Registrar without notice, to appoint additional or other Paying Agents and other Note Registrars without notice and to approve any change in the office through which any Paying Agent or Note Registrar acts; provided, however, that there will at all times be a Paying Agent in London.
This Note is one of the duly authorized series (the Series) of debt securities of the Company (hereinafter called the Securities), issued and to be issued under an indenture dated March 1, 2007, as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture dated as of October 27, 2017, and as further supplemented by the Second Supplemental Indenture dated as of March 10, 2020 (collectively, the Indenture) between the Company and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as trustee (the Trustee), to which Indenture and all other indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the rights and limitations of rights thereunder of the Holders of the Securities and of the rights, obligations and duties of the Company, the Trustee and the Paying Agent for this Note, and the terms upon which the Securities are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered. The Securities may be issued in one or more series, which different series may be issued in various principal amounts, may mature at different times, may bear interest, if any, at different rates, may be subject to different redemption provisions, if any, may be subject to different covenants and Events of Default and may otherwise vary as provided or permitted in the Indenture. This Note is one of the series of Securities designated as 0.000% Senior Notes Due 2024 (herein called the Notes), initially limited in aggregate principal amount to 500,000,000.
Each capitalized term used herein and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning assigned thereto in the Indenture.
The Company may, without the consent of the Holders of the Notes, reopen this Series of Notes and issue additional Notes on separate dates, which shall form a single series and shall have the same terms.
The Notes will be redeemable, in whole or in part, at any time prior to February 10, 2024 (the date that is one month prior to the Maturity Date), at a redemption price equal to the greater of (i) 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed and (ii) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Notes to be redeemed (exclusive of interest accrued to the date of redemption), discounted to the date of redemption (the Redemption Date) on an annual basis (ACTUAL/ACTUAL (ICMA)), at the applicable Comparable Government Bond Rate described below plus 15 basis points, plus accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed to the date of redemption. The Company will calculate the redemption price.
At any time on or after February 10, 2024 (the date that is one month prior to the Maturity Date), the Notes will be redeemable, in whole or in part, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed to the Redemption Date.
Comparable Government Bond Rate means, with respect to any Redemption Date, the rate per annum equal to the yield to maturity, expressed as a percentage (rounded to three decimal places, with 0.0005 being rounded upwards), on the third Business Day prior to the date fixed for redemption, calculated in accordance with customary financial practice in pricing new issues of comparable corporate debt securities paying interest on an annual basis (ACTUAL/ACTUAL (ICMA)) of the Comparable Government Bond (as defined below), assuming a price for the Comparable Government Bond (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the Comparable Government Bond Price for such Redemption Date.
Comparable Government Bond means, in relation to any Comparable Government Bond Rate calculation, the German government bond (Bundesanleihe) selected by an Independent Investment Banker as having an actual or interpolated maturity comparable to the remaining term of the Notes to be redeemed that would be utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of euro-denominated corporate debt securities of a comparable maturity to the remaining term of such Notes.
Independent Investment Banker means one of the Reference Government Bond Dealers selected by the Company.
Comparable Government Bond Price means, with respect to any Redemption Date, (1) the arithmetic average of the Reference Government Bond Dealer Quotations for such Redemption Date, after excluding the highest and lowest such Reference Government Bond Dealer Quotations, or (2) if the Company obtains fewer than four such Reference Government Bond Dealer Quotations, the arithmetic average of all such quotations.
Reference Government Bond Dealer means each of (i) Barclays Bank PLC, BNP Paribas, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and UniCredit Bank AG or any of their affiliates that are primary European government securities dealers, and their respective successors; provided that if any of the foregoing or any of their affiliates shall cease to be a primary European government securities dealer (Primary Dealer), the Company shall substitute therefor another Primary Dealer and (ii) three other Primary Dealers selected by the Company.
Reference Government Bond Dealer Quotations means, with respect to each Reference Government Bond Dealer and any Redemption Date, the arithmetic average, as determined by the Company, of the bid and asked prices for the Comparable Government Bond (expressed in each case as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in writing to the Company by such Reference Government Bond Dealer at 11:00 a.m., Brussels time, on the third Business Day preceding such Redemption Date.
Notice of any redemption will be mailed at least 30 days but not more than 60 days before the Redemption Date to each holder of Notes to be redeemed. If the Company elects to redeem fewer than all the Notes, the trustee will select the particular Notes to be redeemed by such method that the trustee deems fair and appropriate; provided that if the Notes are represented by one or more Global Securities, beneficial interests therein will be selected for redemption by Clearstream and Euroclear in accordance with their respective applicable procedures therefor; and provided, further, that no Notes of a principal amount of 100,000 or less will be redeemed in part.
Any redemption may, at the Companys discretion, be subject to one or more conditions precedent, which will be set forth in the related notice of redemption, including, but not limited to, completion of an offering or financing or other transaction or event. In addition, if such redemption is subject to satisfaction of one or more conditions precedent, such notice will describe each such condition, and if applicable, will state that, in the Companys discretion, the Redemption Date may be delayed until such time (provided, however, that any Redemption Date will not be more than 60 days after the date of the notice of redemption) as any or all such conditions will be satisfied, or such redemption may not occur and such notice may be rescinded in the event that any or all such conditions will not have been satisfied by the Redemption Date, or by the Redemption Date as so delayed.
If any such condition precedent has not been satisfied, the Company will provide written notice to the Trustee prior to the close of business one business day prior to the Redemption Date. Upon receipt of such notice, the notice of redemption will be rescinded or delayed, and the redemption of the notes will be rescinded or delayed as provided in such notice. Upon receipt, the Trustee will provide such notice to each holder in the same manner in which the notice of redemption was given
Unless the Company defaults in payment of the redemption price, on and after the Redemption Date interest will cease to accrue on the Notes or portions thereof called for redemption.
On or before a Redemption Date, the Company will deposit with a paying agent (or the Trustee) money sufficient to pay the redemption price of and accrued interest on the Notes to be redeemed on that date. This Note will not be subject to any sinking fund.
Subject to the exceptions and limitations set forth below, the Company will pay as additional interest on the Notes such additional amounts as are necessary in order that the net payment by the Company or a Paying Agent of the principal, premium and interest with respect to the Notes to a holder that is not a United States person (as defined below), after withholding or deduction for any present or future tax, assessment or other governmental charge imposed by the United States or a taxing authority in the United States, will not be less than the amount provided in the Notes to be then due and payable; provided, however, that the foregoing obligation to pay additional amounts will not apply:
