(the Issuer), Toll Brothers, Inc. (the Company) and the other Guarantors and The Bank of New York Mellon, as trustee (the Trustee). In the event of a conflict between any provisions of the Indenture and this Authorizing Resolution, the relevant provision or provisions of this Authorizing Resolution shall govern with respect to the Notes (as defined below). Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein but used below shall have the meanings given to them in the Indenture.
PARAGRAPH 1. The title of the senior notes shall be 3.800% Senior Notes due 2029 (the Notes).
PARAGRAPH 2. The aggregate principal amount of the Notes that shall be authenticated and delivered under the Indenture, shall be $400,000,000 (except for any Notes authenticated and delivered upon registration of the transfer of, or in exchange for, or in lieu of other Notes pursuant to the terms of the Indenture); provided, however, that, subject to the following two sentences, the Notes may be reopened for issuances of an unlimited amount of additional Notes at any time in accordance with the terms of the Indenture. The Issuer will not issue any additional Notes with the same CUSIP number as the Notes authenticated by the prior sentence if they will not be fungible with such Notes for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Any additional Notes will constitute part of the same series as the Notes authenticated by the second preceding sentence. The form of Notes shall be in the form of Exhibit A hereto. The Notes will be issued only in fully registered form without interest coupons, in denominations of $2,000 and integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof.
PARAGRAPH 3. The principal amount of the Notes is due and payable in full on November 1, 2029, subject to any earlier redemption as referred to in the Indenture.
The principal of, premium, if any, and interest on the Notes will be payable, and, subject to the restrictions on transfer described in the Indenture, the Notes may be surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange, at the office or agency maintained by the Issuer for that purpose; provided that payments of interest may be made at the Issuers option by check mailed to the address of the persons entitled thereto or by transfer to an account maintained by the payee with a bank located in the United States. The office or agency initially maintained by the Issuer for the foregoing purposes will be the corporate trust office of the Trustee.
PARAGRAPH 4. Interest on the Notes shall accrue at a rate of 3.800% per annum (computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months), from
September 12, 2019 to maturity or any earlier redemption; and interest will be payable semiannually in arrears on May 1 and November 1 of each year, commencing on May 1, 2020, to the Holders in whose names such Notes are registered at the close of business on April 15 or October 15, as the case may be, preceding such interest payment date.
PARAGRAPH 5. Prior to the Par Call Date, the Issuer may, at its option, redeem the Notes in whole at any time, or in part from time to time, by providing notice thereof pursuant to Section 3.03 of the Indenture, at a redemption price equal to the greater of (a) 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed and (b) the present value of the Remaining Scheduled Payments (as defined below) on the Notes being redeemed on the redemption date (assuming, for this purpose, that the Notes are scheduled to mature on the Par Call Date), discounted to the date of redemption, on a semiannual basis, at the Treasury Rate plus 50 basis points. On or after the Par Call Date, the Issuer may, at its option, redeem the Notes in whole at any time, or in part from time to time, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed. In both instances, the Issuer will also pay accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes to be redeemed to the date of redemption. In determining the redemption price and accrued and unpaid interest, interest will be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months. If money sufficient to pay the redemption price of and accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes to be redeemed is deposited with the Trustee on or before the redemption date, on and after the redemption date interest will cease to accrue on the Notes (or such portions thereof) called for redemption and such Notes will cease to be outstanding. Notice of any redemption may, at the Issuers discretion, be subject to one or more conditions precedent. In the event that any relevant condition precedent is not satisfied (or waived by the Issuer) as of the date specified for redemption in any such notice of redemption (or amendment thereto), the Issuer may, in its discretion, rescind such notice or amend it on one or more occasions to specify another redemption date until the satisfaction (or waiver by the Issuer) of any such conditions precedent, unless such notice is earlier rescinded by the Issuer as described above.

Remaining Scheduled Payments means, with respect to any Note, the remaining scheduled payments of the principal thereof to be redeemed and interest thereon that would be due after the related redemption date but for such redemption (assuming, for this purpose, that the Notes are scheduled to mature on the Par Call Date); provided, however, that if such redemption date is not an interest payment date with respect to such Note, the amount of the next succeeding scheduled interest payment thereon will be reduced by the amount of interest accrued thereon to such redemption date.
Treasury Rate means, with respect to any redemption date, the rate per annum equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue, assuming a price for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the Comparable Treasury Price for such redemption date.

If a Change of Control Repurchase Event occurs, unless the Issuer has previously exercised its right to redeem the Notes as described above, the Issuer will make an offer to each Holder of Notes to repurchase all or any part (in amounts of $2,000 or in integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof) of that Holders Notes at a repurchase price in cash equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of repurchased Notes plus any accrued and unpaid interest on the repurchased Notes to the date of purchase.

and (b) the second paragraph of such Article shall be amended and restated as follows:
