This Note is one of a duly authorized issue of debentures, notes or other evidences of indebtedness (hereinafter called the Securities) of the Company of the series hereinafter specified, which series is issued in an initial aggregate principal amount of 500,000,000, all such Securities issued and to be issued under an Indenture dated as of April 25, 2008 between the Company and HSBC Bank USA, National Association, as Trustee (herein called the Indenture), 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, duties and immunities of the Trustee for each series of Securities and of the Company, and the terms upon which the Securities are and are to be authenticated and delivered. As provided in the Indenture, the Securities may be issued in one or more series, which different series may be issued in various aggregate 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 sinking, purchase or analogous funds, if any, may be subject to different covenants and Events of Default and may otherwise vary as in the Indenture provided or permitted. This Note is one of a series of the Securities designated therein as 0.125% Notes due 2026 (the Notes).
Principal and interest payments in respect of the Notes are payable by the Company in Euro. If, however, the Euro is unavailable to the Company due to the imposition of exchange controls or other circumstances beyond the Companys 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 the Notes will be made in Dollars until the Euro is again available to the Company or so used. The equivalent Dollar amount of the amount payable on any date in Euro will be calculated by the Currency Determination Agent designated by the Company 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 Euro/Dollar exchange rate available on or prior to the second Business Day prior to the relevant payment date, as determined by the Company in the Companys sole discretion.
So long as the Notes of this series are in the form of Global Securities only, all Notes of this series will collectively be evidenced by the Global Security of this series registered in the name of HSBC Issuer Services Common Depositary Nominee (UK) Limited (the Global Note).
Section 1010 of the Indenture shall be applicable to the Notes, except that (i) the term Holder, when used in Section 1010 of the Indenture, shall mean the beneficial owner of a Note or any person holding on behalf or for the account of the beneficial owner of a Note; (ii) the following language shall replace subsection (k) to Section 1010 of the Indenture any tax, assessment or other governmental charge imposed pursuant to the provisions of Sections 1471 through 1474 of the Code and (iii) the following language shall be included as subsection (l) to
Section 1010 of the Indenture any combination of items (a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f), (g), (h), (i), (j) and (k).
Prior to May 3, 2026 (the date that is three months prior to the scheduled maturity date for the Notes), the Company may, at its option, redeem the Notes, in whole at any time or in part from time to time (in 1,000 increments, provided that any remaining principal amount thereof shall be at least the minimum authorized denomination thereof), 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 (as defined below) of the Notes to be redeemed that would be due if such Notes were due on May 3, 2026 (exclusive of interest accrued to the date of redemption) discounted to the redemption date on an annual basis (Actual/Actual (ICMA)), at a rate equal to the applicable Comparable Government Bond Rate (as defined below) plus 15 basis points plus, in either case, accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon to, but excluding, the redemption date.
On or after May 3, 2026 (the date that is three months prior to the scheduled maturity date for the Notes), the Company may, at its option, redeem the Notes, in whole at any time or in part from time to time (in 1,000 increments, provided that any remaining principal amount thereof shall be at least the minimum authorized denomination thereof) at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon to, but excluding, the redemption date.
Comparable Government Bond Rate means, with respect to any redemption date, the price, expressed as a percentage (rounded to three decimal places, 0.0005 being rounded upwards), at which the gross redemption yield on the Notes to be redeemed, if they were to be purchased at such price on the third business day prior to the date fixed for redemption, would be equal to the gross redemption yield on such business day of the Reference Bond on the basis of the middle market price of the Reference Bond prevailing at 11:00 a.m. (London time) on such dealing day as determined by the Independent Investment Bank.
Independent Investment Bank means one of the Reference Bond Dealers that the Company appoints as the Independent Investment Bank from time to time.
Reference Bond means, in relation to any Comparable Government Bond Rate calculation, a German government bond whose maturity is closest to the maturity of the Notes, or if the Company or the Independent Investment Bank considers that such similar bond is not in issue, such other German government bond as the Company or the Independent Investment Bank, with the advice of three brokers of, and/or market makers in, German government bonds selected by the Company or the Independent Investment Bank, determine to be appropriate for determining the Comparable Government Bond Rate.
Reference Bond Dealer means (A) each of Barclays Bank PLC, Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, J.P. Morgan Securities plc and Société Générale or their respective affiliates that are Primary Bond Dealers), and their respective successors and (B) any other broker of, and/or market maker in, German government bonds (a Primary Bond Dealer) selected by the Company.
Remaining Scheduled Payments means, with respect to the Notes to be redeemed, the remaining scheduled payments of principal of and interest on the relevant Note that would be due after the related redemption date but for the redemption. If that redemption date is not an Interest Payment Date with respect to a Note, the amount of the next succeeding scheduled interest payment on the relevant Note will be reduced by the amount of interest accrued on the applicable Note to, but excluding, the redemption date.
If money sufficient to pay the redemption price on the Notes (or portions thereof) to be redeemed on the applicable redemption date is deposited with the Trustee or Paying Agent on or before the applicable redemption date and certain other conditions are satisfied, then on and after such redemption date, interest will cease to accrue on such Notes (or such portion thereof) called for redemption.
The Company will, or will cause the Trustee or Paying Agent on its behalf to, mail notice of a redemption to Holders of the Notes to be redeemed by first-class mail (or otherwise transmit in accordance with applicable procedures of the Depositary) at least 15 and not more than 45 days prior to the date fixed for redemption. 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 any portions thereof called for redemption. On or before the applicable redemption date, the Company will deposit with the Trustee or Paying Agent or set aside, segregate and hold in trust (if the Company is acting as Paying Agent), funds sufficient to pay the redemption price of, and accrued and unpaid interest on, such Notes to be redeemed on that redemption date. If fewer than all of the Notes are to be redeemed, the Trustee or Paying Agent will select, not more than 60 days prior to the redemption date, the particular Notes or any portions thereof for redemption from the outstanding Notes not previously called by such method as the Trustee or Paying Agent deems fair and appropriate and in accordance with the applicable procedures of the Depositary; provided, however, that no Notes of a principal amount of 100,000 or less shall be redeemed in part.
The Company may redeem the Notes prior to maturity in whole, but not in part, on not more than 60 days notice and not less than 30 days notice at a redemption price equal to the principal amount of such Notes plus any accrued interest and additional amounts to the date fixed for redemption if:
as a result of a change in or amendment to the tax laws, regulations or rulings of the United States or any political subdivision or taxing authority of or in the United States or any change in official position regarding the application or interpretation of such laws, regulations or rulings (including a holding by a court of competent jurisdiction in the United States) that is announced or becomes effective on or after August 1, 2019, the Company has or will become obligated to pay additional amounts with respect to the Notes as described in Section 1010 of the Indenture, or
on or after August 1, 2019, any action is taken by a taxing authority of, or any decision is rendered by a court of competent jurisdiction in, the United States or any political subdivision or taxing authority of or in the United States, including any of those actions specified in the bullet point above, whether or not such action
is taken or decision is rendered with respect to the Company, or any change, amendment, application or interpretation is officially proposed, which, in any such case, in the written opinion of independent legal counsel of recognized standing, will result in a material probability that the Company will become obligated to pay additional amounts with respect to the Notes,
and the Company in its business judgment determines that such obligations cannot be avoided by the use of reasonable measures available to the Company.
If the Company exercises its option to redeem the Notes for tax reasons, the Company will deliver to the Trustee a certificate signed by an authorized officer stating that it is entitled to redeem the Notes and the written opinion of independent legal counsel if required.
The Indenture contains provisions for defeasance at any time of the entire principal of all the Securities of any series upon compliance by the Company with certain conditions set forth therein.
If an Event of Default (other than an Event of Default described in Section 501(4) or 501(5) of the Indenture) with respect to the Notes shall occur and be continuing, then either the Trustee or the Holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the Securities of all series then Outstanding (or, if such default is not applicable to all series of the Securities, the Holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the then Outstanding Securities of all series to which it is applicable) (in each case voting as a single class) may declare the entire principal amount of the Securities of all series so affected due and payable in the manner and with effect provided in the Indenture. If an Event of Default specified in Section 501(4) or 501(5) occurs with respect to the Company, all of the unpaid principal amount and accrued interest then Outstanding shall ipso facto become and be immediately due and payable in the manner with the effect provided in the Indenture without any declaration or other act by the Trustee or any Holder.

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 transfer hereof or in exchange or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Note.
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 premium, if any) and interest on this Note at the times, place and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein and in the Indenture prescribed.
