Floating Interest Rate Provisions:
The Floating Rate Global Notes will bear interest for each interest period at a rate determined by the calculation agent. The calculation agent is The Bank of New York Trust Company, N.A, until such time as HP appoints a successor calculation agent. The interest rate on the Floating Rate Global Notes for a particular interest period will be a per annum rate equal to three-month USD LIBOR as determined on the interest determination date plus 0.11%. The interest determination date for an interest period will be the second London business day preceding the first day of such interest period. Promptly upon determination, the calculation agent will inform the Trustee and HP of the interest rate for the next interest period. Absent manifest error, the determination of the interest rate by the calculation agent shall be binding and conclusive on the holders of the Floating Rate Global Notes, the Trustee and HP. A London business day is a day on which dealings in deposits in U.S. dollars are transacted in the London interbank market.
Interest on the Floating Rate Global Notes will be paid to but excluding the relevant Interest Payment Date. Interest payments on the Floating Rate Global Notes will be made quarterly in arrears on March 1, June 1, September 1 and December 1of each year, beginning on June 1, 2007, to the person in whose name the Floating Rate Global Notes are registered at the close of business on the Business Day immediately preceding the Interest Payment Date. Interest on the Floating Rate Global Notes will accrue from and including February 27, 2007, to but excluding the first Interest Payment Date and then from and including the immediately preceding Interest Payment Date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for to but excluding the next Interest Payment Date or date of Maturity, as the case may be. Each of these periods is referred to as an interest period. The amount of accrued interest that HP will pay for any interest period shall be calculated by multiplying the face amount of the Floating Rate Global Notes then outstanding by an accrued interest factor. This accrued interest factor is computed by adding the interest factor calculated for each day from February 27, 2007, or from the latest date interest was paid to the date for which accrued interest is being calculated. The interest factor for each day is computed by dividing the interest rate applicable to that date by 360. If an Interest Payment Date for the Floating Rate Global Notes falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the Interest Payment Date shall be postponed to the next succeeding Business Day unless such next succeeding Business Day would be in the following month, in which case, the Interest Payment Date shall be the immediately preceding Business Day.
On any interest determination date, LIBOR will be equal to the offered rate for deposits in U.S. dollars having an index maturity of three months, in amounts of at least $1,000,000, as such rate appears on Telerate Page 3750 at approximately 11:00 a.m., London time, on such interest determination date. If on an interest determination date, such rate does not appear on the Telerate Page 3750 as of 11:00 a.m.,
