At the Company’s request, the Trustee shall give the notice of redemption in the Company’s name and at its expense; provided, that the Company shall have delivered to the Trustee, at least 45 days prior to the Redemption Date, an Officers’ Certificate requesting that the Trustee give such notice and attaching a copy of such notice, which shall set forth the information to be stated in such notice as provided in this Section 5.01.

The Company and the Trustee entered into an Indenture, dated as of August 27, 2012 (the “Base Indenture”) and a Second Supplemental Indenture, dated as of June 13, 2016, setting forth certain terms of the Notes pursuant to Section 2.1 of the Base Indenture (the “Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the Supplemental Indenture, the “Indenture”). Capitalized terms herein are used as defined in the Indenture unless otherwise defined herein. The terms of the Notes include those stated in the Base Indenture and those made part of the Base Indenture by reference to the Trust Indenture Act of 1939 (15 U.S.C. Sections 77aaa-77bbbb) (the “TIA”), as in effect on the date of the Base Indenture. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Notes are subject to all such terms, and holders of Notes are referred to the Base Indenture and the TIA for a statement of them. To the extent the terms of the Indenture and this Note are inconsistent, the terms of the Indenture shall govern.

5. Optional Redemption. The Notes are redeemable, in whole or in part, at the option of the Company, beginning with the Interest Payment Date on June 15, 2021, and on any Floating Rate Interest Payment Date thereafter (each, a “Redemption Date”) at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the Redemption Date. On and after the Redemption Date, interest shall cease to accrue on the Notes or the portions thereof called for redemption.

6. Denominations; Transfer; Exchange. The Notes are in registered form, without coupons, in denominations of $1,000 and integral multiples of $1,000. A Holder shall register the transfer of or exchange Notes in accordance with the Indenture. The Company may require a Holder, among other things, to furnish appropriate endorsements and transfer documents and to pay certain transfer taxes or similar governmental charges payable in connection therewith as permitted by the Indenture. The Company need not issue, register the transfer of or exchange any Notes or portions thereof for a period of 15 days before such series is selected for redemption, nor need the Company register the transfer or exchange of any Note selected for redemption in whole or in part.

8. Unclaimed Funds. If funds for the payment of principal or interest remain unclaimed for two years, the Trustee and the Paying Agent will repay the funds to the Company at its written request. After that, all liability of the Trustee and such Paying Agent with respect to such funds shall cease.

9. Legal Defeasance and Covenant Defeasance. The Company may be discharged from its obligations under the Notes and under the Indenture with respect to the Notes except for certain provisions thereof, and may be discharged from obligations to comply with certain covenants contained in the Notes and in the Indenture with respect to the Notes, in each case upon satisfaction of certain conditions specified in the Indenture.

10. Amendment; Supplement; Waiver. Subject to certain exceptions, the Notes and the provisions of the Indenture relating to the Notes may be amended or supplemented with the written consent of the Holders of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes of all series then outstanding affected by such amendment or supplement (voting as one class), and any existing Default or Event of Default or compliance with certain provisions of the Indenture with respect to a series may be waived with the consent of the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of all the Notes of such series then outstanding. Without notice to or consent of any Holder, the parties thereto may amend or supplement the Indenture and the Notes to, among other things, cure any ambiguity, defect or inconsistency, provide for uncertificated Notes in addition to or in place of certificated Notes, or make any other change that does not adversely affect the rights of any Holder of a Note in any material respect.

11. Defaults and Remedies. If an Event of Default (occurs and is continuing, the principal amount of the Notes, together with accrued interest to the date of declaration, may be declared to be due and payable immediately in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture. Holders of Notes may not enforce the Indenture or the Notes except as provided in the Indenture. The Trustee is not obligated to enforce the Indenture or the Notes unless it has received indemnity satisfactory to it. The Indenture permits, subject to certain limitations therein provided, Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding to direct the Trustee in its exercise of any trust or power. The Trustee may withhold from Holders of Notes notice of certain continuing Defaults or Events of Default if it determines that withholding notice is in their interest.

12. No Sinking Fund. There is no sinking fund provided for the Notes.

13. Trustee Dealings with Company. Subject to certain limitations imposed by the TIA and the Indenture, the Trustee, in its individual or any other capacity, may become the owner or pledgee of Notes and may otherwise deal with the Company with the same rights it would have if it were not the Trustee.

Each Holder of a Note by accepting a Note waives and releases all such liability. The waiver and release are part of the consideration for the issuance of the Notes.
