the regular record date (the Regular Record Date) for such Interest Payment Date, which, except in the case of interest payable at Maturity, shall be May 15 or November 15 (whether or not a Business Day), as the case may be, next preceding such Interest Payment Date and, in the case of interest payable at Maturity, shall be the date such that interest payable at Maturity is payable to the same Person to whom principal on this Note is payable. Interest will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months.
Any such interest not so punctually paid or duly provided for shall forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on such Regular Record Date by virtue of his having been such Holder, and may be paid to the Holder of this Note (or one or more predecessor Notes) of record at the close of business on a special record date (the Special Record Date) fixed by the Company for the payment of such defaulted interest, notice whereof shall be given to Holders not less than 15 days prior to such Special Record Date, all as more fully provided in the Indenture.
Payment of the principal of this Note and the interest thereon will be made at the office or agency of the Company in the Borough of Manhattan, City and State of New York (or such other place or places as designated by the Company from time to time in accordance with the Indenture), in such currency of the United States of America as at the time of payment is legal tender for payment of public and private debts.
This Note is one of a duly authorized issue of debt securities of the Company (herein called the Securities), issuable in one or more series, unlimited in aggregate principal amount except as may be otherwise provided in respect of the Securities of a particular series, issued and to be issued under and pursuant to an Indenture, dated as of August 18, 1999, between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A.

Reference is hereby made to the Indenture for a description of the rights, limitations of rights, obligations, duties and immunities thereunder of the Trustee, the Company and the Holders of Securities (including Holders of the Notes).
