Payment of principal on this Note may be accelerated only in the case of default for 30 days in any payment of principal of (or premium, if any, on) or interest on the Securities of this series and certain events involving the bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization of the Company. There is no right of acceleration in the case of a default in the performance of any other covenant of the Company. In case an Event of Default or Covenant Breach with respect to the Securities of this series shall occur and be continuing, the Trustee may in its discretion proceed to protect and enforce its rights and the rights of the Holders of the Securities of this series through appropriate judicial proceedings. The Indenture defines a Covenant Breach to include default in the deposit of any sinking fund payment, when and as due by the terms of a Security of this series or default in the performance, or breach, of any covenant or warranty of the Company in the Indenture or any Security of this series (other than a covenant or warranty a default in whose performance or whose breach is specifically dealt with in Section 501 of the Indenture or which has expressly been included in the Indenture solely for the benefit of securities other than Securities of this series), and continuance of such default or breach for a period of 90 days after there has been given, by registered or certified mail, to the Company by the Trustee or to the Company and the Trustee by the Holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the Outstanding Securities of this series a written notice specifying such default or breach and requiring it to be remedied and stating that such notice is a Notice of Covenant Breach under the Indenture. For the purpose of this paragraph, the term series refers to such Securities with identical terms, except as to issue date, principal amount and, if applicable, the date from which interest begins to accrue.
The Indenture permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Company and the rights of the Holders of the securities of each series to be affected under the Indenture at any time by the Company and the Trustee with the consent
of the Holders of not less than a majority in 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 principal amount of the securities of each series at the time Outstanding to be affected under the Indenture, on behalf of the Holders of all securities of such series, 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 herefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Note. For the purpose of this paragraph, the term default means any event which is, or after notice or lapse of time or both would become, an Event of Default or Covenant Breach in respect of such Securities, and, for purposes of any waivers of past defaults, the term series refers to such Securities with identical terms, except as to issue date, principal amount and, if applicable, the date from which interest begins to accrue.
As provided in and subject to the provisions of the Indenture, the Holder of this Note shall not have the right to institute any proceeding with respect to the Indenture or this Note or for the appointment of a receiver or trustee or for any other remedy thereunder, unless such Holder shall have previously given the Trustee written notice of a continuing Event of Default or Covenant Breach with respect to the Securities of this series, the Holders of not less than 25% in principal amount of the Securities of this series at the time Outstanding shall have made written request to the Trustee to institute proceedings in respect of such Event of Default or Covenant Breach, as applicable, as Trustee and offered the Trustee reasonable indemnity, and the Trustee shall not have received from the Holders of a majority in principal amount of Securities of this series at the time Outstanding a direction inconsistent with such request, and shall have failed to institute any such proceeding, for 60 days after receipt of such notice, request and offer of indemnity. The foregoing shall not apply to any suit instituted by the Holder of this Note for the enforcement of any payment of principal hereof (and premium, if any, hereon) or interest hereon on or after the respective due dates expressed herein. For purposes of this paragraph, the term series refers to such Securities with identical terms, except as to issue date, principal amount and, if applicable, the date from which interest begins to accrue.
If so provided pursuant to the terms of any specific Securities, the above-referenced provisions of the Indenture regarding the ability of Holders to waive certain defaults, or to request the Trustee to institute proceedings (or to give the Trustee other directions) in respect thereof, may be applied differently with regard to such Securities.
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, on) 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, the transfer of this Note may be registered on the Security Register of the Company upon surrender of this Note for registration of transfer at the office or agency of the Company in any place where the principal of and premium, if any, on and interest on this Note are payable, duly endorsed by, 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 by such Holders attorney duly authorized in writing and thereupon one or more new Notes and of like tenor, of authorized denominations and for the same aggregate principal amount, will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees.

No service charge will be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Company may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith.
Prior to due presentment of this Note for registration of transfer, 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.
No recourse shall be had for the payment of the principal of (and premium, if any) or the interest on this Note, or for any claim based hereon, or otherwise in respect hereof, or based on or in respect of the Indenture or any indenture supplemental thereto, against any incorporator, shareholder, officer or director, as such, past, present or future, of the Company or any successor corporation, whether by virtue of any constitution, statute or rule of law, or by the enforcement of any assessment or penalty or otherwise, all such liability being, by the acceptance hereof and as part of the consideration for the issue hereof, expressly waived and released.
The Indenture and the Notes shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and to be performed in such State.
Under the Indenture, the Company, the Trustee and the Holder of the Note waive, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any right to a trial by jury in any proceeding relating to the Notes.
