[Form of Reverse of Note]
Floating Rate Notes due August 1, 2001
This Note is one of a duly authorized issue of notes of the Company designated the Floating Rate Notes due August 1, 2001, of the Company, limited in aggregate principal amount of $450,000,000 (herein called the “Notes”), issued and to be issued under an Indenture dated as of August 1, 1982, between the Company and Citibank, N.A., as Trustee (herein called the “Trustee”, which term includes any successor trustee under the Indenture), as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture dated as of May 7, 1996 and the Fourth Supplemental Indenture dated as of January 18, 2000 (said Indenture, as so supplemented, herein called 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, obligations and immunities thereunder of the Company, the Trustee and the Holders of the Notes, and of the terms upon which the Notes are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered.
The Notes may be redeemed on any quarterly interest payment date on or after May 1, 2000 at the option of the Company, in whole or in part, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes plus accrued interest thereon to the redemption date.
The Notes will bear interest for each interest period at a per annum rate determined by Citibank, N.A., or its successor appointed by the Company, acting as calculation agent. The interest rate will be equal to LIBOR (as defined below) on the second London business day (as defined below) immediately preceding the first day of such interest period (an “interest determination date”) plus 0.375%; provided, however, that in certain circumstances described below, the interest rate will be determined in an alternative manner without reference to LIBOR. Promptly upon such determination, the calculation agent will notify the Trustee of the interest rate for the new interest period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the interest rate for the period from January 18, 2000 through April 30, 2000 shall be 6.41438%.
For purposes of this calculation, “London business day” is defined as a day on which dealings in deposits in U.S. dollars are transacted, or with respect to any future date, are expected to be transacted, in the London interbank market.
“LIBOR” for any interest determination date will be the offered rate for deposits in U.S. dollars having an index maturity of three months for a period commencing on the second London business day immediately following the interest determination date (“three month deposits”) in amounts of not less than $1,000,000, as such rate appears on Telerate Page 3750 (as defined below), or a successor reporter of such rates selected by the calculation agent and acceptable to The Company at approximately 11:00 a.m., London time, on the interest determination date (the “reported rate”).
“Telerate Page 3750” means the display designated on page “3750” on Dow Jones Markets Limited (or such other page as may replace the 3750 page on that service or such other service or services as may be nominated by the British Bankers’ Association for the purpose of displaying London interbank offered rates for U.S. dollar deposits).
If the following circumstances exist on any interest determination date, the calculation agent shall determine the interest rate for the Notes as follows:
(i) In the event the reported rate cannot be determined as of approximately 11:00 a.m. London time on an interest determination date, the calculation agent shall request the principal London offices of each of four major banks in the London interbank market selected by the calculation agent (after consultation with Kerr-McGee) to provide a quotation of the rate (a “rate quotation”) at which three month deposits in amounts of not less than $1,000,000 are offered by it to prime banks in the London interbank market, as of approximately 11:00 a.m. London time on such interest determination date, that is representative of single transactions at such time (“representative amounts”). If at least two rate quotations are provided, the interest rate will be the arithmetic mean of the rate quotations obtained by the calculation agent, plus 0.375%.
(ii) In the event the reported rate cannot be determined and there are fewer than two rate quotations, the interest rate will be the arithmetic mean of the rates quoted at approximately 11:00 a.m. New York City time on such interest determination date, by three major banks in New York City, selected by the calculation agent (after consultation with Kerr-McGee), for loans in representative amounts in -U.S. dollars to leading European banks, having an index maturity of three months for a period commencing on the second London business day immediately following such interest determination date, plus 0.375%; provided, however, that if fewer than three banks selected by the calculation agent are quoting such rates, the interest rate for the applicable period will be the same as the interest rate in effect for the immediately preceding interest period.
Upon the request of the holder of any Note, the calculation agent will provide to such holder the interest rate in effect on the date of such request and, if determined, the interest rate for the next interest period.
Interest on the Notes will be calculated on the basis of the actual number of days for which interest is payable in the relevant interest period, divided by 360. All dollar amounts resulting from such calculation will be rounded, if necessary, to the nearest cent with one-half cent rounded upward.
The Notes are subject to the provisions of the Indenture relating to defeasance of the entire indebtedness represented by the Notes.
If any Event of Default, as defined in the Indenture, with respect to the Notes shall occur and be continuing, the principal of all the Notes may be declared due and payable in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture. The Notes are subject to the provisions of the Indenture relating to defeasance of the entire indebtedness represented by the Notes.
The Indenture permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Company with respect to the Notes and the rights of the Holders of the Notes under the Indenture at any time by the Company and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Outstanding Notes. The Indenture also contains provisions permitting the Holders of specified percentages in aggregate principal amount of the Notes at the time Outstanding, on behalf of the Holders of all the Notes, to waive compliance by the Company with certain provisions of the Indenture and certain past defaults under the Indenture and their consequences. Any such consent or waiver by the Holder of this Note shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Note and of any Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange here for or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Note.
Holders of Notes may not enforce their rights pursuant to the Indenture or the Notes except as provided in the Indenture. No reference herein to the Indenture and no provision of this Note or of the Indenture shall alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of and interest on this Note 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, this Note is transferable on the Security Register of the Company, upon surrender of this Note for registration of transfer at the office of the Company maintained for such purpose in the Borough of Manhattan, the City and State of New York, duly endorsed, 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 such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, and thereupon one or more new Notes of like aggregate principal amount of such denominations as are authorized for Notes and of a like Stated Maturity and with like terms and conditions will be issued in the name of the designated transferee or transferees.
The Notes are issuable in registered form without coupons in denominations of $1,000 and any integral multiple thereof. As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, Notes are exchangeable for other Notes of like aggregate principal amount and of a like Stated Maturity and with like terms and conditions, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same.
No service charge shall be made for any registration or transfer or exchange of Notes, but the Company may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection therewith.
The Company, the Trustee and any agent of the Company or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Note is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Note be overdue, and neither the Company, the Trustee nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
All terms used in this Note which are defined in the Indenture shall have the meanings assigned to them therein.
