So long as this bond remains in book-entry only form, the Record Date for each Interest Payment Date will be the close of business on the Business Day before the applicable Interest Payment Date, and, if this bond is not in book-entry only form, the Record Date for each Interest Payment Date will be the close of business on the 1st calendar day of the month of the Interest Payment Date (whether or not a Business Day).
"Business Day" means, for purposes of the preceding two paragraphs, a day other than (i) a Saturday or a Sunday, or (ii) a day on which banking institutions in The City of New York are authorized or obligated by law or executive order to remain closed.
The amount of interest payable will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months. If any Interest Payment Date is not a Business Day, then payment of the interest payable on that date will be made on the next succeeding day which is a Business Day (and without any additional interest or other payment in respect of any delay), with the same force and effect as if made on such date.
