DEED OF COVENANT

in respect of a U.S.$2,500,000,000

EURO MEDIUM TERM NOTE PROGRAMME

 

 

  
       


DEED OF COVENANT

THIS DEED OF COVENANT is made on 21 July, 2006 by PepsiCo, Inc. (the Issuer) in favour of the account holders specified below of Clearstream Banking, société anonyme and Euroclear Bank S.A./N.V., as operator of the Euroclear System and/or any other additional clearing system or systems as are specified in the Final Terms relating to any Note (as defined below) (each a Clearing System).

WHEREAS:

 

(A)

The Issuer has entered into a Programme Agreement (the Programme Agreement, which expression includes the same as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time) dated 21 July, 2006 with the Dealers named therein under which the Issuer proposes from time to time to issue Euro Medium Term Notes (the Notes).

 

(B)

The Notes will initially be represented by, and comprised in, Temporary Global Notes (the Temporary Global Notes) or Permanent Global Notes (the Permanent Global Notes, the Temporary Global Notes and the Permanent Global Notes being herein together called the Global Notes) representing a certain number of underlying Notes (the Underlying Notes). Each Underlying Note initially represented by, and comprised in, a Temporary Global Note may be thereafter represented by a Permanent Global Note.

 

(C)

Each Global Note may, after issue, be deposited with a depositary or, as the case may be, the common safekeeper, for one or more Clearing Systems (each such Clearing System or all such Clearing Systems together, the Relevant Clearing System). Upon such deposit of a Global Note the Underlying Notes represented by such Global Note will be credited to a securities account or securities accounts with the Relevant Clearing System. Any account holder with the Relevant Clearing System which has underlying Notes credited to its securities account from time to time (each a Relevant Account Holder) will, subject to and in accordance with the terms and conditions and operating procedures or management regulations of the Relevant Clearing System, be entitled to transfer such Underlying Notes and (subject to and upon payment being made by the Issuer to the bearer in accordance with the terms of the relevant Global Note) will be entitled to receive payments from the Relevant Clearing System, as the case may be, calculated by reference to the Underlying Notes credited to its securities account.

 

(D)

In certain circumstances specified in each Global Note, a Global Note will become void. The time at which a Global Note becomes void is hereinafter referred to as the Relevant Time. In such circumstances each Relevant Account Holder will, subject to and in accordance with the terms of this Deed, acquire against the Issuer all those rights which such Relevant Account Holder would have had if, prior to the Global Note becoming void, duly executed and authenticated Definitive Note(s) (as defined in the Agency Agreement) and, if the Notes are repayable in instalments, receipts in respect thereof (the Receipts) and interest coupons (the Coupons) appertaining to the Definitive Note(s) (if appropriate) had been issued in respect of its Underlying Note(s) and such Definitive Note(s), Receipts (if appropriate) and Coupons (if

appropriate) were held and beneficially owned by such Relevant Account Holder.

NOW THIS DEED WITNESSES AS FOLLOWS:

 

1.

If any Global Note becomes void in accordance with the terms thereof the Issuer hereby undertakes and covenants with each Relevant Account Holder (other than when any Relevant Clearing System is an account holder of any other Relevant Clearing System) that each Relevant Account Holder shall automatically acquire at the Relevant Time, without the need for any further action on behalf of any person, against the Issuer all those rights which such Relevant Account Holder has credited to its securities account with the Relevant Clearing System at the Relevant Time. The Issuer’s obligation pursuant to this clause shall be a separate and independent obligation by reference to each Underlying Note which a Relevant Account Holder has credited to its securities account with the Relevant Clearing System and the Issuer agrees that a Relevant Account Holder may assign its rights hereunder in whole or in part.

 

2.

The records of the Relevant Clearing System shall be conclusive evidence of the identity of the Relevant Account Holders and the number of Underlying Notes credited to the securities account of each Relevant Account Holder. For the purposes hereof a statement issued by the Relevant Clearing System stating:

 

 

(i)

the name of the Relevant Account Holder to which such statement is issued; and

 

 

(ii)

the aggregate nominal amount of Underlying Notes credited to the securities account of such Relevant Account Holder as at the opening of business on the first day following the Relevant Time on which the Relevant Clearing System is open for business, shall be conclusive evidence of the records of the Relevant Clearing System at the Relevant Time.

 

3.

In the event of a dispute, the determination of the Relevant Time by the Relevant Clearing System (in the absence of manifest error) shall be final and conclusive for all purposes in connection with the Relevant Account Holders with securities accounts with the Relevant Clearing System.

 

4.

The Issuer will, subject to the exceptions and limitations set forth below, pay such Additional Amounts as are necessary in order that the net payment by the Issuer or any Paying Agent of the principal of and interest (including any discount) on a Note or Coupon to a holder who is a United States Alien (as such term is defined below), after deduction or withholding for or on account of any present or future tax, assessment or governmental charge of the United States (as such term is defined below), or a political subdivision or authority thereof or therein, imposed by withholding with respect to the payment, will not be less than the amount provided for in such Note or such Coupon to be then due and payable; provided, however, that the foregoing obligation to pay Additional Amounts shall not apply to:

(i)

any tax, assessment or governmental charge that would not have been so imposed but for the existence of any present or former connection between such holder (or between a fiduciary, settlor, beneficiary, member or shareholder of, or holder of power over, such holder, if such holder is an estate, trust, partnership or corporation) and the United States, including, without limitation, such holder (or fiduciary, settlor, beneficiary, member, shareholder or holder of a power):

any holder who is a fiduciary or partnership or other than the sole beneficial owner of the Note or Coupon, but only to the extent that a beneficiary or settlor with respect to such fiduciary or member of such partnership or a beneficial owner of the Note or Coupon would not have been entitled to the payment of an additional amount had such beneficiary, settlor, member or beneficial owner been the holder of such Note or Coupon; or

 

 

(iii)

any tax, assessment or governmental charge that would not have been imposed or withheld but for the failure of the holder, if required, to comply with certification, identification information reporting requirements under United States income tax laws, without regard to any tax treaty, with respect to the payment, concerning the nationality, residence, identity or connection with the United States of the holder or a beneficial owner of such Note or Coupon, if such compliance is required by United States income tax laws, without regard to any tax treaty, as a precondition to relief or exemption from such tax, assessment or governmental charge; or

 

 

(iv)

any tax, assessment or governmental charge that would not have been so imposed or withheld but for the presentation by the holder of such

 

Page 4
