[Reverse of Security]
This Security is one of a duly authorized issue of securities of the Issuer (herein called the Securities), issued and to be issued in one or more series under an Indenture, dated as of December 5, 2001, among the Issuer, Regency Centers Corporation, as Guarantor, and Wachovia Bank, National Association, formerly known as First Union National Bank, as Trustee, as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of June 5, 2007 (herein called the First Supplemental Indenture), the Second Supplemental Indenture, dated as of June 2, 2010 (herein called the Second Supplemental Indenture), the Third Supplemental Indenture, dated as of August 17, 2015 (herein called the Third Supplemental Indenture), the Fourth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of January 26, 2017 (herein called the Fourth Supplemental Indenture), and the Fifth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of March 6, 2019 (herein called the Fifth Supplemental Indenture); and such Indenture as originally executed and delivered and as supplemented from time to time thereafter, together with the First Supplemental Indenture, the Second Supplemental Indenture, the Third Supplemental Indenture, the Fourth Supplemental Indenture and the Fifth Supplemental Indenture, herein called the Indenture), each among the Issuer, Regency Centers Corporation, as Guarantor, and U.S. Bank National Association, as successor to Wachovia Bank, National Association, as Trustee (herein called the Trustee, which term includes any successor trustee under the Indenture), to which Indenture reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Issuer, the Trustee and the Holders of the Securities and of the terms upon which the Securities are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered. This Security is one of the series designated on the face hereof.
Securities of this series may be redeemed at any time at the option of the Issuer, in whole or in part, upon notice of not more than 60 nor less than 15 days prior to the Redemption Date, at a redemption price equal to the sum of (i) the principal amount of the Securities being redeemed, plus accrued interest thereon to the Redemption Date and (ii) the Make-Whole Amount, if any, with respect to such Securities; provided, however, that if any Security is redeemed on or after the Par Call Date, the redemption price shall not include the Make-Whole Amount.
As used herein, Make-Whole Amount means, in connection with any optional redemption or accelerated payment of any Securities, the excess, if any, of (i) the aggregate present value as of the date of such redemption or accelerated payment of each dollar of principal being redeemed or paid and the amount of interest (exclusive of interest accrued to the date of redemption or accelerated payment) that would have been payable in respect of each such dollar to the Par Call Date if such redemption or accelerated payment had not been made, determined by discounting, on a semi-annual basis, such principal and interest at the Reinvestment Rate (determined on the third Business Day preceding the date such notice of redemption is given or declaration of acceleration is made) from the respective dates on which such principal and interest would have been payable if such redemption or accelerated payment had not been made, over (ii) the aggregate principal amount of the Securities being redeemed or paid.

Par Call Date means June 15, 2029.
Reinvestment Rate means 0.20% plus the arithmetic mean of the yields under the respective heading Week Ending published in the Statistical Release under the caption Treasury Constant Maturities for the maturity (rounded to the nearest month) corresponding to the remaining life to maturity of the Securities (assuming that the Securities matured on the Par Call Date, the remaining life), as of the payment date of the principal being redeemed or paid. If no maturity exactly corresponds to such maturity, yields for the two published maturities most closely corresponding to such maturity shall be calculated pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence and the Reinvestment Rate shall be interpolated or extrapolated from such yields on a straight-line basis, rounding in each of such relevant periods to the nearest month. For the purposes of calculating the Reinvestment Rate, the most recent Statistical Release published prior to the date of determination of the Make-Whole Amount shall be used.
Statistical Release means the statistical release designated H.15 or any comparable online data source or publication which is made available by the Federal Reserve System and which establishes yields on actively traded United States government securities adjusted to constant maturities, or, if such Statistical Release is not published at the time of any determination under the Indenture, then such other reasonably comparable index which shall be designated by us.

If an Event of Default with respect to Securities of this series shall occur and be continuing, the principal of the Securities of this series may be declared due and payable in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture.
The Indenture permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Issuer and the Guarantor and the rights of the Holders of the Securities of each series to be affected under the Indenture at any time by the Issuer, the Guarantor and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Securities at the time Outstanding of each series to be affected. The Indenture also contains provisions permitting the Holders of specified percentages in aggregate principal amount of the Securities of each series at the time Outstanding, on behalf of the Holders of all the Securities of such series, to waive compliance by the Issuer or by the Guarantor 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 Security shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Security and of any Security issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Security.
