The bonds of Series R originally issued shall be dated the date of such issue and any bonds of Series R subsequently issued shall be dated as provided in Section 2.03 of the Indenture. All Series R Bonds shall mature on September 15, 2040, and shall bear interest at the rate of three and fifty-eight hundredths percent (3.58%) per annum from their respective dates, such interest to be payable semi-annually in arrears on the fifteenth (15th) day of March and September in each year commencing March 15, 2021, and shall bear interest on any overdue principal (including any overdue prepayment of principal) and premium, if any, and (to the extent permitted by applicable law) on any overdue payment of interest, at the rate of five and fifty-eight hundredths percent (5.58%) per annum.

payment to the holders of the bonds of Series R), (B) pursuant to such agreement such holder shall agree that it will not sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any such bond of Series R in respect of which any such payment or redemption shall have been made unless, prior to the delivery thereof by it, either (i) it shall have made a clear and accurate notation of the amount of principal so redeemed upon any such bond to be transferred, or (ii) such bond of Series R shall have been presented to the Trustee for appropriate notation thereon of the portion of the principal amount thereof redeemed, or (iii) such bond or bonds of Series R shall have been surrendered in exchange for a new bond or bonds of Series R for the unredeemed balance of the principal amount thereof in accordance with the other terms of the Indenture, and (C) in such agreement such holder shall agree that prior to receiving any final payment of the entire remaining unpaid principal amount of any Series R Bond, the holder thereof shall be required to deliver such bond to the Trustee. For purposes of this Section 1.01, the term Institutional Holder shall mean any insurance company, bank, savings and loan association, trust company, investment company, charitable foundation, employee benefit plan (as defined in ERISA) or other institutional investor or financial institution.

(b) From and after the Collateral Release Date, the Series R Bonds shall be redeemed in accordance with the terms of the 2020 Series R BPA.
Section 1.06. In the event that all or any part of the bonds of Series R shall be redeemed or otherwise discharged prior to their maturity pursuant to or in accordance with the order of any governmental commission or regulatory authority upon the reorganization, dissolution or liquidation of the Company, or otherwise, the registered owners of such bonds of Series R shall be entitled to be paid thereafter an amount equal to the principal amount of the bonds of Series R to be redeemed, plus accrued interest to the date of redemption, plus the Make Whole Amount.
