This Note is one of a duly authorized Series of Securities of the Company designated as the 3.900% Notes Due 2025 (the Notes), initially issued in an aggregate principal amount of $1,750,000,000 on September 9, 2022. Such Series of Securities has been established pursuant to, and is one of an indefinite number of Series of debt securities of the Company, issued or issuable under and pursuant to, the Indenture, dated as of July 19, 2005, by and between the Company, as Issuer, and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as Trustee (the Trustee), as supplemented and amended by the First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of December 1, 2006, the Second Supplemental Indenture, dated as of December 19, 2014, and the Third Supplemental Indenture, dated as of June 26, 2018, in each case, by and between the Company, as Issuer, and the Trustee (as so amended and supplemented, the Indenture), to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the rights, limitations of rights, obligations, duties and immunities thereunder of the Trustee, the Company and the Holders of the Notes and of the terms upon which this Note is, and is to be, authenticated and delivered. The terms, conditions and provisions of the Notes are those stated in the Indenture, those made part of the Indenture by reference to the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended, and those set forth in this Note. To the extent that the terms, conditions and other provisions of this Note modify, supplement or are inconsistent with those of the Indenture, then the terms, conditions and other provisions of this Note shall govern.
All capitalized terms which are used but not defined in this Note shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Indenture.
The Company may, without the consent of the Holders, create and issue additional Securities ranking equally with the Notes and otherwise identical in all respects (except for the public offering price, initial interest accrual date, initial Interest Payment Date, and the issue date) so that such additional Securities shall be consolidated and form a single Series with the Notes; provided, however, that any additional Securities that are not fungible with any then outstanding Notes for United States federal income tax purposes will be issued under CUSIP and ISIN numbers separate from the CUSIP and ISIN numbers of such outstanding Notes; and provided, further, that no additional Securities of any existing or new Series may be issued under the Indenture if an Event of Default has occurred and remains uncured thereunder.
2. Ranking. The Notes shall constitute the senior unsecured debt obligations of the Company and shall rank equally in right of payment among themselves and with all other existing and future senior unsecured debt obligations of the Company.
3. Payment of Overdue Amounts. The Company shall pay interest on overdue principal and overdue installments of interest, if any, from time to time, calculated on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months, giving effect to the actual payment date for such overdue principal and overdue installments of interest, on demand at the interest rate borne by the Notes to the extent lawful.
