Principal, Maturity and Interest

        The Company will issue the New Notes in this offering in an aggregate principal amount of $750 million. The New Notes are being issued as additional August 2017 Notes. The Notes will mature on January 15, 2028. The Company will be permitted to issue additional Notes under the Indenture (the "Additional New Notes"). The August 2017 Notes, the New Notes offered hereby and any Additional New Notes will rank equally and be treated as a single class for all purposes of the Indenture, including waivers, amendments, redemptions and offers to purchase. Interest on the Notes will accrue at the rate of 4.875% per annum and will be payable semiannually in arrears on January 15 and July 15 of each year, to the holders of record of Notes at the close of business on January 1 and July 1, respectively, immediately preceding such interest payment date, except that the last payment of interest will be made on January 15, 2028, to the holders of record of Notes at the close of business on January 1, 2028. The first interest payment with respect to the Notes will be made on January 15, 2018.

        Interest on the Notes will accrue from the most recent date to which interest has been paid or, if no interest has been paid, from the date of the Indenture. Interest will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year comprised of twelve 30-day months.

        The New Notes will be issued only in registered form without coupons, in denominations of $2,000 and integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof. Principal of, premium, if any, and interest on the Notes will be payable, and the Notes will be transferable, at the designated corporate trust office or agency of the Trustee in the City of New York maintained for such purposes.

No service charge will be made for any transfer, exchange or redemption of the Notes, except in certain circumstances for any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection therewith.

        Initial settlement for the New Notes will be made in same-day funds. The Notes are expected to trade in the Same-Day Funds Settlement System of The Depository Trust Company ("DTC") until maturity, and secondary market trading activity for the Notes will therefore settle in same-day funds.
