(2)Subject to the procedures set out in the Procedures Memorandum, for the purposes of Subclause 7(1) the Agent is entitled to treat a telephone or facsimile communication from a person purporting to be (and who the Agent, after making reasonable investigation, believes in good faith to be) the authorised representative of the relevant Issuer named in the list referred to in, or notified pursuant to, Subclause 19(7) as sufficient instructions and authority of the relevant Issuer for the Agent to act in accordance with Subclause 7(1).

 

(3)In the event that a person who has signed on behalf of any Issuer a master Temporary Global Note, a master Permanent Global Note or Definitive Bearer Notes not yet issued but held by the Agent in accordance with Subclause 7(1) ceases to be authorised as described in Subclause 19(7), the Agent shall (unless the relevant Issuer gives notice to the Agent that Notes signed by that person do not constitute valid and binding obligations of the relevant Issuer or otherwise until replacements have been provided to the Agent) continue to have authority to issue any such Notes, and the relevant Issuer hereby warrants to the Agent that such Notes shall, unless notified as aforesaid, be valid and binding obligations of the relevant Issuer. Promptly upon such person ceasing to be authorised, the relevant Issuer shall provide the Agent with replacement master Temporary Global Notes, master Permanent Global Notes and (if applicable) Definitive Bearer Notes and the

 

Page 16

(4)Unless otherwise agreed in writing between the relevant Issuer and the Agent, each Note credited to the Agent’s distribution account with Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg (or, in the case of Notes in CGN form, such other applicable clearing agency) following the delivery of a Temporary Global Note or Permanent Global Note, as the case may be, to a common depositary or, as the case may be, a common safekeeper pursuant to Subclause 3(1)(c), 3(1)(d), 4(1)(c) or 4(1)(d), respectively, shall be held to the order of the relevant Issuer. The Agent shall procure that the nominal amount of Notes which the relevant Purchaser has agreed to purchase is:

 

(a)debited from the Agent’s distribution account; and

 

(b)credited to the securities account of such Purchaser with Euroclear, Clearstream, Luxembourg or, in the case of Notes in CGN form, such other clearing agency (as specified in the Letter from Lead Manager/Dealer as provided for in Annex C to the Procedures Memorandum set forth in Appendix D hereto), in each case only upon receipt by the Agent on behalf of the relevant Issuer of the purchase price due from the relevant Purchaser in respect of such Notes.

 

(5)Unless otherwise agreed in writing between the relevant Issuer and the Agent, if on the relevant Issue Date a Purchaser does not pay the full purchase price due from it in respect of any Note (the Defaulted Note) and, as a result, the Defaulted Note remains in the Agent’s distribution account with Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg (or, in the case of Notes in CGN form, such other applicable clearing agency) after such Issue Date, the Agent will continue to hold the Defaulted Note to the order of the relevant Issuer.

8.PAYMENTS

 

(1)The Agent shall advise the relevant Issuer, no later than ten Business Days (as defined in Subclause 8(2)) immediately preceding the date on which any payment is to be made to the Agent pursuant to this Subclause 8(1), of the payment amount, value date and payment instructions and the relevant Issuer shall on each date on which any payment in respect of any Bearer Notes becomes due, transfer to an account specified by the Agent not later than (unless otherwise agreed between the relevant Issuer and the Agent) the Payment Time such amount in the relevant currency as shall be sufficient for the purposes of such payment in funds settled through such payment system as the Agent and the relevant Issuer may agree. As used in this Subclause 8(1), the term Payment Time means (unless otherwise agreed between the relevant Issuer and the Agent) 2:00 p.m. local time in the principal financial centre of the country of the currency in which the payment falls is to be made (which in the case of payment of euro is London). Unless otherwise provided in the applicable Final Terms, the principal financial centre of any country for the purposes of this Subclause 8(1) shall be as provided in the ISDA Definitions on the Issue Date of such Series of Bearer Notes (except if the Specified Currency is Australian dollars or New Zealand dollars the principal financial centre shall be Sydney or Auckland, respectively).

 

(2)The relevant Issuer shall ensure that, no later than the third Business Day immediately preceding the date on which any payment is to be made to the Agent pursuant to Subclause 8(1), the Agent shall receive a confirmation from the relevant Issuer that such payment will be made. For the purposes of this Clause 8, Business Day has the meaning given to it in Condition 4(b).

 

(3)The Agent shall ensure that payments of both principal and interest in respect of Temporary Global Notes will be made only to the extent that certificates of non-U.S. beneficial ownership as required by U.S. Treasury regulations have been received from Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg in accordance with the terms thereof (and the Agent shall retain each such certification on behalf of the relevant Issuer for four calendar years following the year in which the certification is received); provided, however, that no such certification will be required with respect to Notes that, as specified in the applicable Final Terms (i) have been issued in reliance on United States Treasury regulation Section 1.163-5(c)(2)(i)(C) (“TEFRA C”) or (ii) have an initial maturity of 183 days or less (taking into consideration unilateral rights to roll or extend), a minimum denomination of $500,000 (or the equivalent value in any other currency, determined at the spot rate on the date of issue) and are intended to comply with United States Treasury Regulations Section 1.6049-5(b)(10).

 

Page 18

 

(4)The Agent shall pay interest on the Notes only outside the United States and its possessions, within the meaning of United States Treasury regulation Section 1.163-5(c)(2)(v). No interest on Notes issued by TMCC shall be paid into an account maintained by the payee in the United States or mailed to an address in the United States unless otherwise permitted in the Conditions.

 

(5)Subject to the Agent being satisfied in its sole discretion that payment will be duly made as provided in Subclause 8(1), the Agent or the relevant Paying Agent shall pay or cause to be paid all amounts due in respect of the Bearer Notes on behalf of the relevant Issuer in the manner provided in the Conditions. If any payment provided for in Subclause 8(1) is made late but otherwise in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, the Agent and each Paying Agent shall nevertheless make payments in respect of the Bearer Notes as aforesaid following receipt by it of such payment.

 

(6)If for any reason the Agent considers in its sole discretion that the amounts to be received by the Agent pursuant to Subclause 8(1) will be, or the amounts actually received by it pursuant thereto are, insufficient to satisfy all claims in respect of all payments then falling due in respect of the Bearer Notes, the Agent shall then forthwith notify the relevant Issuer of such insufficiency and, until such time as the Agent has received the full amount of all such payments, neither the Agent nor any Paying Agent shall be obliged to pay any such claims.

 

(7)Without prejudice to Subclauses 8(5) and 8(6), if the Agent pays any amounts to the holders of Bearer Notes or Coupons or to any Paying Agent at a time when it has not received payment in full in respect of the relevant Bearer Notes in accordance with Subclause 8(1) (the excess of the amounts so paid over the amounts so received being the Shortfall), the relevant Issuer shall, in addition to paying amounts due under Subclause 8(1), pay to the Agent on demand interest (at a rate which represents the Agent’s actual overnight cost of funding the Shortfall as evidenced to the relevant Issuer by the provision of details of the calculation of the cost of funding) on the Shortfall (or the unreimbursed portion thereof) from (and including) the date such Shortfall is paid by the Agent to the holders of the Bearer Notes or Coupons or to any Paying Agent to (but excluding) the date of receipt in full by the Agent of the Shortfall. The Agent shall notify the relevant Issuer by facsimile as soon as practicable, it being understood that the relevant Issuer shall have the right to make such payment subsequently with good value as of such Business Day.

 

(8)The Agent shall on demand promptly reimburse each Paying Agent for payments in respect of Bearer Notes properly made by such Paying Agent in accordance with this Agreement and the Conditions unless the Agent has notified the Paying Agent, prior to the opening of business in the location of the office of the Paying Agent through which payment in respect of the Bearer Notes can be made on the due date of a payment in respect of the Bearer Notes, that the Agent does not expect to receive sufficient funds to make payment of all amounts falling due in respect of such Bearer Notes.

 

(9)Whilst any Bearer Notes are represented by Temporary Global Notes or Permanent Global Notes, all payments due in respect of such Notes shall be made to, or to the order of, the holder of the Global Notes, subject to and in accordance with the provisions of the Global Notes. On the occasion of any such payment, (i) in the case of a CGN, the Paying Agent to which the Global

 

Page 19

 

Note was presented for the purpose of making such payment shall cause the relevant Schedule to the Global Notes to be annotated so as to evidence the amounts and dates of such payments of principal and/or interest as applicable or (ii) in the case of any Global Note which is a New Global Note, the Agent shall instruct Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg to make appropriate entries in their records to reflect such payment.

 

(10)If the amount of principal and/or interest then due for payment is not paid in full (otherwise than by reason of (a) FATCA Withholding Tax or (b) any other deduction required by law to be made therefrom), (i) the Paying Agent to which a Temporary Global Note or Permanent Global Note is presented for the purpose of making such payment shall, unless the Note is a New Global Note, make a record of such shortfall on the relevant Schedule to the Global Note and such record shall, in the absence of manifest error, be prima facie evidence that the payment in question has not to that extent been made or (ii) in the case of any Global Note which is a New Global Note, the Agent shall instruct Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg to make appropriate entries in their records to reflect such shortfall in payment.

 

(11)Each Paying Agent shall be entitled to deduct any applicable FATCA Withholding Tax and shall have no obligation to gross-up any payment hereunder or to pay any additional amount as a result of such applicable FATCA Withholding Tax.

 

(12)If the relevant Issuer reasonably determines that it will be required to withhold or deduct any FATCA Withholding Tax in connection with any payment due on any Notes, then the relevant Issuer will be entitled to re-direct or reorganise any such payment in any way that it sees fit in order that the payment may be made without FATCA Withholding Tax provided that any such re-direction or reorganisation of any payment is made through a recognised institution of international standing and such payment is otherwise made in accordance with this Agreement.

 

9.DETERMINATIONS AND NOTIFICATIONS IN RESPECT OF NOTES

 

(1)The Agent shall make all such determinations and calculations (howsoever described) as it is required to do under the Conditions, all subject to and in accordance with the Conditions provided that certain calculations with respect to any Series of Notes may be made by an agent (the Calculation Agent) appointed by the relevant Issuer and acceptable to the Agent. The Agent may decline to act in the capacity described above in relation to a particular Series of Notes if (i) the Agent does not have the capacity to determine the rate of interest or redemption amount or any other calculation to be made in relation to such Series of Notes and (ii) such decision to decline is notified to the relevant Issuer by the Agent as soon as reasonably practicable after receipt by the Agent of the terms of such Series of Notes and, in any event, prior to the issue of such Series of Notes.

 

(2)The Agent shall not be responsible to any Issuer or to any third party (except in the event of negligence, wilful default or bad faith) as a result of the Agent having acted on any quotation given by any Reference Bank (as referred to in Condition 4(b)(iv)(E)) which subsequently may be found to be incorrect.

(4)The Agent shall use its best endeavours to cause each Rate of Interest, Interest Amount and Interest Payment Date and all other amounts, rates and dates which it is obliged to determine or calculate under the Conditions (or which is provided to the Agent by any other Calculation Agent appointed by the relevant Issuer as provided in Subclause 9(1)) to be published as required in accordance with the Conditions as soon as possible after their determination or calculation.

 

(5)If the Agent does not at any material time for any reason determine and/or calculate and/or publish the Rate of Interest, Interest Amount and/or Interest Payment Date in respect of any Interest Period or any other amount, rate or date as provided in this Clause 9, it shall forthwith notify the relevant Issuer, the other Paying Agents, (in the case of Registered Notes issued by TCCI) the TCCI Registrar and the TCCI Transfer Agent and (in the case of Registered Notes issued by TMCC) the TMCC Registrar and the TMCC Transfer Agent of such fact.

 

(7)For purposes of monitoring the aggregate nominal amount of Notes (as “Notes” is defined in the Programme Agreement) issued and outstanding (as “outstanding” is defined in the Programme Agreement) under the Programme, the Agent shall determine the euro equivalent of the nominal amount of each issue of Notes (as “Notes” is defined in the Programme Agreement) denominated in a Specified Currency, other than euros as follows:

 

(a)the EUR equivalent of Notes denominated in a Specified Currency other than EUR shall be determined by the Agent as of 2:30 p.m. London time on the Issue Date for such Notes by reference to the spot rate displayed on a page on the relevant Reuters service or Dow Jones Markets Limited or such other service as is agreed between the Agent and the relevant Issuer from time to time;

 

(b)the EUR equivalent of Notes that are linked to an index or formula (Index Linked Notes), or where payment obligations under such Notes are denominated in more than one currency (Dual Currency Notes), shall be determined in the manner specified above in paragraph (a) by reference to the original nominal amount of such Notes; and

 

Page 21

 

(c)the EUR equivalent of Zero Coupon Notes and other Notes issued at a discount shall be determined in the manner specified above in paragraph (a) by reference to the net proceeds received by the relevant Issuer for the particular issue.

 

The Agent shall promptly notify the relevant Issuer of each determination made as aforesaid.

 

(8)Without prejudice to Subclause 9(7), determinations with regard to Notes linked to an index or formula or number of currencies shall otherwise be made by the Calculation Agent specified in the applicable Final Terms in the manner specified in the applicable Final Terms. Unless otherwise agreed between the relevant Issuer and the relevant Purchaser or Purchasers of such Notes, such determinations shall be made on the basis of a Calculation Agency Agreement substantially in the form of Appendix C hereto.

 

10.NOTICE OF ANY WITHHOLDING OR DEDUCTION

 

If any Issuer is, in respect of any payments, compelled to withhold or deduct any amount for or on account of taxes, duties, assessments or governmental charges as specifically contemplated under the Conditions, such Issuer shall give notice thereof to the Agent as soon as it becomes aware of the requirement to make such withholding or deduction and shall give to the Agent such information as it shall require to enable it to comply with such requirement.

 

11.DUTIES OF THE AGENT IN CONNECTION WITH EARLY REDEMPTION

Provisions for meetings of holders of Registered Notes issued by TMCC and amendment of the TMCC Note Agency Agreement are set out in the TMCC Note Agency Agreement. This Clause 28 applies to Bearer Notes and any reference in this Clause 28 to “Notes” is to Bearer Notes.

 

(2)This Agreement, the Notes and any Coupons attached to the Notes may be amended by the Issuers or the relevant Issuer, as the case may be, and the Agent, without the consent of the holder of any Note or Coupon (a) for the purpose of curing any ambiguity, or of curing, correcting or supplementing any defective provision contained herein or therein, or to evidence the succession of another corporation to the relevant Issuer as provided in Condition 13 or provide for substitution of the relevant Issuer as provided in Condition 14, (b) to make any further modifications of the terms of this Agreement necessary or desirable to allow for the issuance of any additional Notes (which modifications shall not be materially adverse to holders of outstanding Notes), or (c) in any manner which the Issuers or the relevant Issuer, as the case may be, and the Agent may deem necessary or desirable and which shall not materially adversely affect the interests of the holders of the Notes and Coupons. In addition, with the written consent of holders of a majority in aggregate nominal amount of the Notes then outstanding affected thereby, or by resolution adopted by the holders of a majority in aggregate nominal amount of Notes then outstanding present or represented at a meeting of the holders of the Notes affected thereby at which a quorum is present (provided that such resolution shall be approved by the holders of not less than 25 per cent. of the aggregate nominal amount of Notes then outstanding affected thereby), this Agreement or the terms and conditions of the Notes and Coupons may be modified or amended by the parties hereto or thereto, and future compliance and past defaults waived, in each case as provided in Conditions 9 and 15 and subject to the limitations therein provided (including that no such agreement shall, without the consent or the

affirmative vote of the holder of each Note affected thereby, (i) change the stated maturity of the principal of or any interest on any Note, (ii) reduce the nominal amount of or interest on any Note, (iii) change the obligation of the Issuer to pay Additional Amounts as provided in Condition 7, (iv) reduce the percentage in nominal amount of outstanding Notes the consent of the holders of which is necessary to modify or amend this Agreement or the terms and conditions of the Notes or to waive any future compliance or past default, or (v) reduce the percentage in nominal amount of outstanding Notes the consent of the holders of which is required at any meeting of holders of Notes at which a resolution is adopted).

 

(3)A meeting of holders of Notes may be called by the holders of at least 10 per cent. in nominal amount of the outstanding Notes of the relevant Series at any time and from time to time to make, give or take any request, demand, authorisation, direction, notice, consent, waiver or other action provided by this Agreement or the Notes to be made, given or taken by holders of Notes.

 

(4)The Agent may at any time call a meeting of holders of Notes of any Series for any purpose specified in Subclause 28(2) to be held at such time and at such place in the City of New York or in London or to be held wholly or partly by means of electronic facility or facilities (including video conference platforms or by conference call), as the Agent and the relevant Issuer shall determine (including determining the means, or all different means, of attendance and participation used in relation to a meeting of holders of Notes of any Series). Notice of every meeting of holders of Notes, setting forth the time and the place of such meeting (which need not be a physical place), and if the meeting is to be held (wholly or partly) by means of electronic facility or facilities, including video conference platforms or conference calls (or partly in one way and partly in another), specifying the means, or all different means, of attendance and participation, and in general terms the action proposed to be taken at such meeting, shall be given by the Agent to the relevant Issuer and to the holders of the Notes, in the same manner as provided in Condition 16, not less than 21 nor more than 180 days prior to the date fixed for the meeting. In the case at any time the relevant Issuer or the holders of at least 10 per cent. in nominal amount of the outstanding Notes shall have requested the Agent to call a meeting of the holders to take any action authorised in Subclause 28(2), by written request setting forth in reasonable detail the action proposed to be taken at the meeting, and the Agent shall not have given notice of such meeting within 21 days after receipt of such request or shall not thereafter proceed to cause the meeting to be held as provided herein, then the relevant Issuer, or the holders of Notes in the amount above-specified, as the case may be, may determine the time and the place in the City of New York or London or the electronic facility or facilities for such meeting (or partly in one way and partly in another) and may call such meeting by giving notice thereof as provided in this Subclause 28(4).

 

(5)To be entitled to vote at any meeting of holders of Notes, a person shall be a holder of outstanding Notes at the time of such meeting, or a person appointed by an instrument in writing as proxy for such holder. Holders of Notes present in person or by proxy by means of electronic facility or facilities (including video conference platforms or conference call) provided

 

Page 35

 

in Subclause 28(4) shall be counted in the quorum for, and entitled to participate in, the meeting of holders of Notes.

 

(6)The quorum at any meeting called to adopt a resolution will be persons holding or representing a majority in aggregate nominal amount of the Notes then outstanding affected thereby. In the absence of a quorum, within 30 minutes of the time appointed for any such meeting, the meeting may be adjourned for a period of not less than 10 days as determined by the chairman of the meeting prior to the adjournment of such meeting. In the absence of a quorum at any such adjourned meeting, such adjourned meeting may be further adjourned for a period of not less than 10 days as determined by the chairman of the meeting prior to the adjournment of such adjourned meeting. Notice of the reconvening of any adjourned meeting shall be given as provided in Subclause 28(4) except that such notice need be given not less than five days prior to the date on which the meeting is scheduled to be reconvened. Notice of the reconvening of an adjourned meeting shall state expressly the percentage of the nominal amount of the outstanding Notes which shall constitute a quorum.

 

The quorum at any adjourned meeting will be one or more persons holding or representing 25 per cent. in aggregate nominal amount of such Notes then outstanding affected thereby. Any meeting of holders of Notes at which a quorum is present may be adjourned from time to time by vote of a majority in nominal amount of the outstanding Notes represented at the meeting, and the meeting may be held as so adjourned without further notice. At a meeting or an adjourned meeting duly reconvened and at which a quorum is present as aforesaid, any resolution and all matters shall be effectively passed and decided if passed or decided by the persons entitled to vote a majority in nominal amount of the outstanding Notes represented and voting at such meeting, provided that such amount approving such resolution shall be not less than 25 per cent. in nominal amount of the outstanding Notes.

 

(7)Any modifications, amendments or waivers under this Clause 28 to this Agreement or to the terms and conditions of the Notes and Coupons will be conclusive and binding on all holders of Notes and Coupons, whether or not they have given such consent or were present at any meeting, and whether or not notation of such modifications, amendments or waivers is made upon the Notes and Coupons. It shall not be necessary for the consent of the holders of Notes under Condition 15 to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment, but it shall be sufficient if such consent shall approve the substance thereof.

 

(8)Notes authenticated and delivered after the execution of any amendment under this Clause 28 to this Agreement, the Notes or Coupons may bear a notation in form approved by the Agent as to any matter provided for in such amendment to this Agreement. New Notes so modified as to conform, in the opinion of the Agent and the relevant Issuer, to any modification contained in any such amendment may be prepared by the relevant Issuer, authenticated by the Agent and delivered in exchange for the Notes then outstanding affected thereby.

 

(9)The Agent may make such reasonable regulations as it may deem advisable for any meeting of holders of Notes in regard to proof of the holding of Notes and of the appointment of proxies and in regard to the appointment and duties

 

Page 36

 

of inspectors of votes, the submission and examination of proxies, certificates and other evidence of the right to vote, and such other matters concerning the conduct of the meeting as it shall deem appropriate, including determining that adequate facilities are available throughout the meeting to ensure holders of Notes in person or by proxy attending the meeting by all means (including by means of electronic facility or facilities, including video conference platforms or by conference call) are able to participate in such meeting. Such regulations may, without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, reflect the practices and facilities of any Relevant Clearing System. The Agent shall, by an instrument in writing, appoint a temporary chairman of the meeting, unless the meeting shall have been called by the relevant Issuer or holders of Notes as provided above, in which case the relevant Issuer or the holders of Notes calling the meeting, as the case may be, shall in like manner appoint a temporary chairman. A permanent chairman and a permanent secretary of the meeting shall be elected by vote of the persons entitled to vote a majority in nominal amount of the outstanding Notes represented at the meeting. The chairman of the meeting shall have no right to vote, except as a holder of Notes or proxy. A record, at least in triplicate, of the proceedings of each meeting of holders of Notes shall be prepared, and one such copy shall be delivered to the relevant Issuer and another to the Agent to be preserved by the Agent.

(4)The relevant Issuer undertakes in favour of each Relevant Account Holder that, in relation to any payment to be made by it under this Clause 31, it will comply with the provisions of Condition 7 to the extent that they apply to any payments in respect of Underlying Notes as if those provisions had been set out in full in this Clause 31.

 

(5)The relevant Issuer will pay any stamp and other duties and taxes, including interest and penalties, payable on or in connection with the execution of this Agreement and any action taken by any Relevant Account Holder to enforce the provisions of this Clause 31.

 

(6)This Clause 31 and Clause 34 shall take effect as a Deed Poll for the benefit of the Relevant Account Holders from time to time. This Agreement shall be deposited with and held by the common depositary or common safekeeper, as the case may be, for Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg (being at that date of this Agreement the Agent) until all the obligations of each Issuer under this Clause 31 have been discharged in full.

 

(7)Each Issuer acknowledges the right of every Relevant Account Holder to the production of, and the right of every Relevant Account Holder to obtain (upon payment of a reasonable charge) a copy of, this Agreement, and further acknowledges and covenants that the obligations binding upon it contained in this Clause 31 are owed to, and shall be for the account of, each and every Relevant Account Holder, and that each Relevant Account Holder shall be entitled severally to enforce those obligations against the relevant Issuer.

34.GOVERNING LAW

 

(1)This Agreement and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with this Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of England.

Each Issuer hereby irrevocably waives any objection which it may have to the laying of the venue of any Proceedings in any such courts and any claim that any such Proceedings have been brought in an inconvenient forum and hereby further irrevocably agrees that a judgment in any Proceedings brought in the English courts shall be conclusive and binding upon each Issuer and may be enforced in the courts of any other jurisdiction. Nothing contained herein shall limit any right to take Proceedings against any Issuer in any other court of competent jurisdiction, nor shall the taking of Proceedings in one or more jurisdictions preclude the taking of Proceedings in any other jurisdiction, whether concurrently or not. Each Issuer hereby appoints Toyota Financial Services (UK) PLC of Great Burgh, Burgh Heath, Epsom, Surrey KT18 5UZ as its agent for service of process and agrees that, in the event of Toyota Financial Services (UK) PLC ceasing so to act or ceasing to be registered in England, it will appoint another person as its agent for service of process in England in respect of any Proceedings.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE NOTES

 

This Note is one of a Series (as defined below) of Notes issued subject to, and with the benefit of, an amended and restated agency agreement dated 17 September 2021 (the “Agency Agreement”) and made between Toyota Motor Finance (Netherlands) B.V., Toyota Credit Canada Inc., Toyota Finance Australia Limited and Toyota Motor Credit Corporation as Issuers and The Bank of New York Mellon, acting through its London branch, as the issuing agent and (unless specified otherwise in the applicable Final Terms) principal paying agent and (unless specified otherwise in the applicable Final Terms) as calculation agent (the “Agent”, which expression shall include any successor agent or other Calculation Agent specified in the applicable Final Terms and the “Paying Agent”, which expression shall include any additional or successor paying agents). Notes in registered form (“Registered Notes”) issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc. are also issued subject to, and with the benefit of, an amended and restated note agency agreement dated 8 September 2017 (the “TCCI Note Agency Agreement”) and made between Toyota Credit Canada Inc. as Issuer, BNY Trust Company of Canada as registrar, paying agent and transfer agent and, in respect of Registered Notes settled or cleared in Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg (each as defined below), The Bank of New York Mellon SA/NV, Luxembourg Branch as registrar and transfer agent (each a “TCCI Registrar”, which expression shall include any successor registrar, paying agent and transfer agent) and The Bank of New York Mellon, acting through its London branch, as transfer agent and paying agent (the “TCCI Transfer Agent”, which expression shall include any additional or successor transfer agent or paying agent appointed for Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.). Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation are also issued subject to, and with the benefit of, an amended and restated note agency agreement dated 8 September 2017 (the “TMCC Note Agency Agreement”) and made between Toyota Motor Credit Corporation as Issuer, The Bank of New York Mellon SA/NV, Luxembourg Branch as registrar and transfer agent (the “TMCC Registrar”, which expression shall include any successor registrar and transfer agent) and The Bank of New York Mellon, acting through its London branch, as transfer agent and paying agent (the “TMCC Transfer Agent”, which expression shall include any additional or successor transfer agent or paying agent appointed for Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation).

 

References in these Terms and Conditions of the Notes (“Terms and Conditions”) to the “Issuer” shall be references to the party specified in the applicable Final Terms (as defined below). References herein to the “Notes” shall be references to the Notes of this Series (as defined below) and shall mean (i) in relation to any Notes represented by a global Note, units of the lowest Specified Denomination (as defined below) in the Specified Currency (as defined below) of the relevant Notes, (ii) definitive Notes issued in exchange (or part exchange) for a temporary global Note, a permanent global Note or a global Registered Note and (iii) any global Note.

 

Interest bearing definitive Notes in bearer form will (unless otherwise indicated in the applicable Final Terms) have interest coupons (“Coupons”) and, if indicated in the applicable Final Terms, talons for further Coupons (“Talons”) attached on issue. Any reference herein to Coupons or coupons shall, unless the context otherwise requires, be deemed to include a reference to Talons. Global Notes do not have Coupons or Talons attached on issue.

 

The Notes and the Coupons have the benefit of certain Credit Support Agreements governed by Japanese law, one between Toyota Motor Corporation (the “Parent”) and Toyota Financial Services Corporation (“TFS”) dated 14 July 2000 as supplemented by a Supplemental Credit Support Agreement dated 14 July 2000 and a Supplemental Credit Support Agreement No. 2 dated 2 October 2000 (collectively, the “TMC Credit Support Agreement”) and others between TFS and each of Toyota Motor Finance (Netherlands) B.V., Toyota Credit Canada Inc. and Toyota Finance Australia Limited dated 7 August 2000 and Toyota Motor Credit Corporation dated 1 October 2000 (each a “Credit Support Agreement” and together with the TMC Credit Support Agreement, the “Credit Support Agreements”). The Credit Support Agreements do not constitute a direct or

 

Page 45

 

indirect guarantee by the Parent or TFS of the Notes. The Parent’s obligations under its Credit Support Agreement and the obligations of TFS under its Credit Support Agreements, rank pari passu with its direct, unconditional, unsubordinated and unsecured debt obligations.

 

The Final Terms applicable to the Notes are attached to or endorsed on the Notes and supplement these Terms and Conditions. References herein to the “applicable Final Terms” shall mean the Final Terms attached to or endorsed on the Notes.

 

As used herein, “Series” means each original issue of Notes together with any further issues expressed to form a single series with the original issue and the terms of which (save for the Issue Date, the amount and the date of the first payment of interest thereon and/or the Issue Price (as indicated in the applicable Final Terms)) are identical (including the Maturity Date, Interest Basis, Redemption/Payment Basis and Interest Payment Dates (if any) and whether or not the Notes are admitted to trading) and expressions “Notes of the relevant Series” and related expressions shall be construed accordingly. As used herein, “Tranche” means all Notes of the same Series with the same Issue Date and Interest Commencement Date (if applicable).

If the Notes are to be admitted to trading on the main market of the London Stock Exchange plc or offered to the public in the United Kingdom in circumstances not within an exemption from the requirement to publish a prospectus under Section 85 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, as amended, the applicable Final Terms will be published on the website of the London Stock Exchange plc through a regulatory news service and/or on the Issuer’s website. If the Notes are admitted to trading on the regulated market of the Irish Stock Exchange p.l.c. trading as Euronext Dublin (“Euronext Dublin”) or offered to the public in a Member State of the European Economic Area in circumstances not within an exemption from the requirement to publish a prospectus under the Prospectus Regulation, the applicable Final Terms will be published on the website of Euronext Dublin through a regulatory news service and/or on the Issuer’s website.

Copies of the TMCC Note Agency Agreement (if the Notes are Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) are available free of charge and available for inspection by the holders of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation at the specified offices of the TMCC Registrar and the TMCC Transfer Agent. The holders of the Notes (the “Noteholders”), which expression shall, in relation to any Notes represented by a global Note, be construed as provided in Condition 1, and the holders of the Coupons (the “Couponholders”) are deemed to have notice of the Agency Agreement and the applicable Final Terms, which are binding on them. The holders of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc. are deemed to have notice of the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, which is binding on them and the holders of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation are deemed to have notice of the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, which is binding on them.

 

Words and expressions defined in the Agency Agreement or (if the Note is a Registered Note issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) in the TCCI Note Agency Agreement or (if the Note is a Registered Note issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) in the TMCC Note Agency Agreement or used in the applicable Final Terms shall have the same meanings where used in these Terms and Conditions unless the context otherwise requires or unless otherwise stated. In

 

Page 46

 

the event of inconsistency between the Agency Agreement, (if the Note is a Registered Note issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, (if the Note is a Registered Note issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) the TMCC Note Agency Agreement or the applicable Final Terms, the applicable Final Terms will prevail.

 

1.Form, Denomination and Title

 

The Notes may be issued in bearer form (“Bearer Notes”) or, in respect of Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc. or Toyota Motor Credit Corporation, in bearer or registered form as set out in the applicable Final Terms and, in the case of definitive Bearer Notes, serially numbered, in the currency (“Specified Currency”) and in the denominations (“Specified Denomination(s)”), as specified in the applicable Final Terms.

 

Bearer Notes may not be exchanged for Registered Notes and vice versa.

 

The Note may be a Note bearing interest on a fixed rate basis (“Fixed Rate Note”), a Note bearing interest on a floating rate basis (“Floating Rate Note”), a Note issued on a non-interest bearing basis (“Zero Coupon Note”) or any combination of the foregoing, depending upon the interest basis specified in the applicable Final Terms.

 

Bearer Notes in definitive form are issued with Coupons attached, unless they are Zero Coupon Notes in which case references to interest (other than interest due after the Maturity Date), Coupons and Couponholders in these Terms and Conditions are not applicable.

 

Subject as set out below, title to Bearer Notes and Coupons will pass by delivery. The holder of each Coupon whether or not such Coupon is attached to a Note, in his capacity as such, shall be subject to and bound by all the provisions contained in the relevant Note. Subject as set out below, the Issuer and any Paying Agent may deem and treat the bearer of any Bearer Note or Coupon as the absolute owner thereof (whether or not overdue and notwithstanding any notice to the contrary, including any notice of ownership or writing thereon or notice of any previous loss or theft thereof) for all purposes but, in the case of any global Bearer Note, without prejudice to the provisions set out in the next succeeding paragraph.

 

For so long as any of the Notes is represented by a global Note, each person who is for the time being shown in the records of Euroclear Bank SA/NV (“Euroclear”) or of Clearstream Banking S.A. (“Clearstream, Luxembourg”) or any other agreed clearing system as the holder of a particular nominal amount of such Notes (other than a clearing agency (including Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg) that is itself an account holder of Euroclear or Clearstream, Luxembourg or any other agreed clearing system (in which regard any certificate or other document issued by Euroclear or Clearstream, Luxembourg or any other agreed clearing system as to the nominal amount of Notes standing to the account of any person shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes save in the case of manifest error or proven error)) shall be treated by the Issuer, the Agent and any other Paying Agent or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) the TCCI Registrar and the TCCI Transfer Agent or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) the TMCC Registrar and the TMCC Transfer Agent as the holder of such nominal amount of such Notes for all purposes other than with respect to the payment of principal (including premium (if any)) or interest on the Notes, for which purpose the bearer of the relevant global Bearer Note or registered holder of the global Registered Note shall be treated by the Issuer, the Agent and any other Paying Agent as the holder of such Notes in accordance with and subject to the terms of the relevant global Note (and the expressions “Noteholder” and “holder of Notes” and related expressions shall be construed accordingly). Notes which are represented by a global Note will be transferable only in accordance with the rules and procedures for the time being of Euroclear or of Clearstream, Luxembourg, as the case may be.

 

Page 47

 

Title to Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc. passes on due endorsement in the central register (“TCCI Register”) which Toyota Credit Canada Inc. shall procure to be kept by the BNY Trust Company of Canada. Toyota Credit Canada Inc. shall procure a branch register to be kept by The Bank of New York Mellon SA/NV, Luxembourg Branch in respect of Registered Notes settled or cleared in Euroclear or Clearstream, Luxembourg. Title to Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation passes on due endorsement in the relevant register (“TMCC Register”) which Toyota Motor Credit Corporation shall procure to be kept by the TMCC Registrar. Subject as set out above, except as ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction or as required by law, the registered holder of any Registered Note shall be deemed to be and may be treated as the absolute owner of such Registered Note for all purposes, whether or not such Registered Note shall be overdue and notwithstanding any notice of ownership, theft or loss thereof or any writing thereon made by anyone and no person shall be liable for so treating such registered holder (and the expressions “Noteholder” and “holder of Notes” and related expressions shall be construed accordingly).

 

Provisions relating to the transfer of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc. are set out in the relevant Registered Note and the TCCI Note Agency Agreement. Provisions relating to the transfer of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation are set out in the relevant Registered Note and the TMCC Note Agency Agreement.

 

Any reference herein to Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg shall, whenever the context so permits, except in relation to Bearer Notes in new global note (“NGN”) form or Registered Notes intended to be held in a manner which would allow Eurosystem eligibility (being the new safekeeping structure (“NSS”) and hereinafter referred to as “held under the NSS”), be deemed to include a reference to any additional or alternative clearing system specified in Part B of the applicable Final Terms.

 

2.Status of the Notes and the Credit Support Agreements

 

The Notes and any relative Coupons are direct, unconditional, unsubordinated and (subject to the provisions of Condition 3) unsecured obligations of the Issuer and rank pari passu and rateably without any preference among themselves and (save for certain obligations required to be preferred by law) equally with all other unsecured obligations (other than subordinated obligations, if any) of the Issuer from time to time outstanding. The Notes and the Coupons have the benefit of the Credit Support Agreements.

4.Interest

 

(a)Interest on Fixed Rate Notes and Business Day Convention for Notes other than Floating Rate Notes

 

Each Fixed Rate Note bears interest from (and including) the Interest Commencement Date which is specified in the applicable Final Terms (or the Issue Date, if no Interest Commencement Date is separately specified) to (but excluding) the Maturity Date specified in the applicable Final Terms at the rate(s) per annum equal to the Fixed Rate(s) of Interest so specified payable in arrear on the Interest Payment Date(s) in each year and on the Maturity Date so specified if it does not fall on an Interest Payment Date.

 

Page 49

 

If the Notes are in definitive form, except as provided in the applicable Final Terms, or if the applicable Final Terms specify that a Fixed Coupon Amount or Broken Amount(s) shall apply in the case of Notes represented by a global Note, the amount of interest payable on each Interest Payment Date in respect of the Fixed Interest Period ending on (but excluding) such date will amount to the Fixed Coupon Amount as specified in the applicable Final Terms. Payments of interest on any Interest Payment Date will, if so specified in the applicable Final Terms, amount to the Broken Amount(s) so specified.

 

As used in these Terms and Conditions, “Fixed Interest Period” means the period from (and including) an Interest Payment Date (or the Interest Commencement Date or the Issue Date, as the case may be) to (but excluding) the next (or first) Interest Payment Date or Maturity Date.

 

Unless specified otherwise in the applicable Final Terms, the “Following Business Day Convention” will apply to the payment of all Fixed Rate Notes, meaning that if the Interest Payment Date or Maturity Date would otherwise fall on a day which is not a Business Day (as defined in Condition 4(b)(i) below), the related payment of principal or interest will be made on the next succeeding Business Day as if made on the date such payment was due. If the “Modified Following Business Day Convention” is specified in the applicable Final Terms for any Fixed Rate Note, it shall mean that if the Interest Payment Date or Maturity Date would otherwise fall on a day which is not a Business Day (as defined in Condition 4(b)(i) below), the related payment of principal or interest will be made on the next succeeding Business Day as if made on the date such payment was due unless it would thereby fall into the next calendar month in which event the full amount of payment shall be made on the immediately preceding Business Day as if made on the day such payment was due. Unless specified otherwise in the applicable Final Terms, the amount of interest due shall not be changed if payment is made on a day other than an Interest Payment Date or the Maturity Date as a result of the application of a Business Day Convention specified above or other Business Day Convention specified in the applicable Final Terms.

 

Except in the case of (i) Notes in definitive form where a Fixed Coupon Amount or a Broken Amount is specified in the applicable Final Terms or (ii) Notes represented by a global Note where the applicable Final Terms specify that a Fixed Coupon Amount or Broken Amount(s) shall apply, interest shall be calculated in respect of any period (including any period ending other than on an Interest Payment Date (which for this purpose shall not include a period where a payment is made on a day other than an Interest Payment Date or the Maturity Date as a result of the application of a Business Day Convention as provided in the immediately preceding paragraph, unless specified otherwise in the applicable Final Terms)) by applying the Fixed Rate of Interest to:

 

(A)in the case of Fixed Rate Notes which are represented by a global Note, the aggregate outstanding nominal amount of the Fixed Rate Notes represented by such global Note; or

 

(B)in the case of Fixed Rate Notes in definitive form, the Calculation Amount,

 

and, in each case, multiplying such sum by the applicable Fixed Day Count Fraction or Day Count Fraction as specified in the applicable Final Terms, and rounding the resultant figure to the nearest sub-unit of the relevant Specified Currency, half of any such sub-unit being rounded upwards or otherwise in accordance with applicable market convention. Where the Specified Denomination of a Fixed Rate Note in definitive form is a multiple of the Calculation Amount, the amount of interest payable in respect of such Fixed Rate Note shall be the product of the amount (determined in the manner provided above) for the Calculation Amount and the amount by which the Calculation Amount is multiplied to reach the Specified Denomination, without any further rounding.

 

In these Terms and Conditions, “Fixed Day Count Fraction” means:

 

(i)if “Actual/Actual (ICMA)” is specified in the applicable Final Terms:

(2)the number of days in such Accrual Period falling in the next Determination Period divided by the product of (x) the number of days in such Determination Period and (y) the number of Determination Dates (as specified in the applicable Final Terms) that would occur in one calendar year assuming interest was to be payable in respect of the whole of that year;

 

(ii)if “Actual/Actual (ISDA)” is specified in the applicable Final Terms, the actual number of days in the relevant period from (and including) the most recent Interest Payment Date (or, if none, the Interest Commencement Date or Issue Date, as applicable) to (but excluding) the next scheduled Interest Payment Date divided by 365 (or, if any portion of that period falls in a leap year, the sum of (x) the actual number of days in that portion of the period falling in a leap year divided by 366; and (y) the actual number of days in that portion of the period falling in a non-leap year divided by 365);

 

(iii)if “30/360” is specified in the applicable Final Terms, the number of days in the relevant period from (and including) the most recent Interest Payment Date (or, if none, the Interest Commencement Date or Issue Date, as applicable) to (but excluding) the next scheduled Interest Payment Date (such number of days being calculated on the basis of a year of 360 days with 12 30-day months) divided by 360 and, in the case of an incomplete month, the number of days elapsed;

 

(iv)if “Actual/360” is specified in the applicable Final Terms, the actual number of days in the relevant period from (and including) the most recent Interest Payment Date (or, if none, the Interest Commencement Date or Issue Date, as applicable) to (but excluding) the next scheduled Interest Payment Date divided by 360;

Such interest will be payable in respect of each Interest Period. As used in these Terms and Conditions, “Interest Period” means the period from (and including) an Interest Payment Date (or the Interest Commencement Date or Issue Date, as applicable) to (but excluding) the next (or first) Interest Payment Date.

 

If a Business Day Convention is specified in the applicable Final Terms and (x) if there is no numerically corresponding day in the calendar month in which an Interest Payment Date should occur or (y) if any Interest Payment Date would otherwise fall on a day which is not a Business Day (as defined below), then, if the Business Day Convention specified is:

 

(A)in any case where Specified Periods are specified in accordance with Condition 4(b)(i)(2) above, the Floating Rate Convention, such Interest Payment Date (i) in the case of (x) above, shall be the last day that is a Business Day in the relevant month and the provisions of (2) below in this sub-paragraph (A) shall apply mutatis mutandis or (ii) in the case of (y) above, shall be postponed to the next day which is a Business Day unless it would thereby fall into the next calendar month, in which event (1) such Interest Payment Date shall be brought forward to the immediately preceding Business Day and (2) each subsequent Interest Payment Date shall be the last Business Day in the month which falls in the Specified Period after the preceding applicable Interest Payment Date occurred; or

If, in the case of a Successor Rate where no such Adjustment Spread is formally recommended or proposed by any Relevant Nominating Body, or in the case of an Alternative Rate, the Issuer, acting in good faith, in a commercially reasonable manner and by reference to such sources as it deems appropriate, which may include consultation with an Independent Adviser, determines that there is an Adjustment Spread in customary market usage in the international debt capital markets for transactions which reference the Original Reference Rate, where such rate has been replaced by the Successor Rate or the Alternative Rate (as the case may be), then the Issuer shall promptly notify the Agent (or such other Calculation Agent specified in the applicable Final Terms) and, in accordance with Condition 16, the Noteholders of such Adjustment Spread and the Agent (or such other Calculation Agent specified in the applicable Final Terms) shall apply such Adjustment Spread to the Successor Rate and the Alternative Rate (as the case may be) for each subsequent determination of a relevant Rate of Interest (or a component part thereof) by reference to such Successor Rate or Alternative Rate (as applicable).

 

If no such recommendation or option has been made (or made available) by any Relevant Nominating Body, or the Issuer so determines that there is no such Adjustment Spread in customary market usage in the international debt capital markets and the Issuer further determines, acting in good faith, in a commercially reasonable manner and following consultation with an Independent Adviser, that an Adjustment Spread is required to be applied to the Successor Rate or the Alternative Rate (as the case may be), then the Adjustment Spread shall be:

 

(A)the Adjustment Spread determined by the Issuer, acting in good faith, in a commercially reasonable manner and following consultation with an Independent Adviser, as being the Adjustment Spread recognised or acknowledged as being the industry standard for over-the-counter derivative transactions which reference the Original Reference Rate, where such rate has been replaced by the Successor Rate or the Alternative Rate (as the case may be); or

 

(B)if there is no such industry standard recognised or acknowledged, such Adjustment Spread as the Issuer, acting in good faith, in a commercially reasonable manner and following consultation with an Independent Adviser, determines to be appropriate, having regard to the objective, so far as is reasonably practicable in the circumstances, of reducing or eliminating any economic prejudice or benefit (as the case may be) to Noteholders as a result of

 

Page 64

 

the replacement of the Original Reference Rate with the Successor Rate or the Alternative Rate (as the case may be).

 

Following any such determination of the Adjustment Spread, the Issuer shall promptly notify the Agent (or such other Calculation Agent specified in the applicable Final Terms) and, in accordance with Condition 16, the Noteholders of such Adjustment Spread and the Agent (or such other Calculation Agent specified in the applicable Final Terms) shall apply such Adjustment Spread to the Successor Rate or the Alternative Rate (as the case may be) for each subsequent determination of a relevant Rate of Interest (or a component part thereof) by reference to such Successor Rate or Alternative Rate (as applicable).

 

(iii)Benchmark Amendments

 

If any Successor Rate, Alternative Rate or Adjustment Spread is determined in accordance with this Condition 4(c) and the Issuer, acting in good faith, in a commercially reasonable manner and by reference to such sources as it deems appropriate, which may include consultation with an Independent Adviser, determines in its discretion (A) that amendments to these Terms and Conditions and/or the Agency Agreement are necessary to ensure the proper operation of such Successor Rate, Alternative Rate and/or Adjustment Spread (such amendments, the “Benchmark Amendments”) and (B) the terms of the Benchmark Amendments, then the Issuer shall, subject to the Issuer having to give notice thereof to the Noteholders in accordance with Condition 16, without any requirement for the consent or approval of Noteholders, modify these Terms and Conditions and/or the Agency Agreement to give effect to such Benchmark Amendments with effect from the date specified in such notice.

 

In connection with any such modifications in accordance with this Condition 4(c)(iii), the Issuer shall comply with the rules of any stock exchange on which the Notes are for the time being listed or admitted to trading.

 

Any Benchmark Amendments determined under this Condition 4(c)(iii) shall be notified promptly by the Issuer to the Agent (or such other Calculation Agent specified in the applicable Final Terms) and, in accordance with Condition 16, the Noteholders. Such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the effective date of such Benchmark Amendments.

 

(iv)Independent Adviser

 

In the event the Issuer is to consult with an Independent Adviser in connection with any determination to be made by the Issuer pursuant to this Condition 4(c), the Issuer shall use its reasonable endeavours to appoint an Independent Adviser, as soon as reasonably practicable, for the purposes of any such consultation.

 

An Independent Adviser appointed pursuant to this Condition 4(c) shall act in good faith, in a commercially reasonable manner and (in the absence of fraud or wilful default) shall have no liability whatsoever to the Issuer or the Noteholders for any determination made by it or for any advice given to the Issuer in connection with any determination made by the Issuer pursuant to this Condition 4(c) or otherwise in connection with the Notes.

 

If the Issuer consults with an Independent Adviser as to whether there is an Alternative Rate and/or any Adjustment Spread is required to be applied and/or in relation to the quantum of, or any formula or methodology for determining such Adjustment Spread and/or whether any Benchmark Amendments are necessary and/or in relation to the terms of any such Benchmark Amendments, a written determination of that Independent Adviser in respect thereof shall be conclusive and binding on all parties, save in the case of manifest error, and (in the absence of fraud or wilful default) the Issuer shall have no liability whatsoever to the Noteholders in respect of anything done, or omitted to be done, in relation to that matter in accordance with any such written determination.

(d)Global Notes

 

The holder of a global Note shall be the only person entitled to receive payments in respect of Notes represented by such global Note and the Issuer will be discharged by payment to, or to the order of, the holder of such global Note in respect of each amount so paid. Each of the persons shown in the records of Euroclear or Clearstream, Luxembourg as the holder of a particular nominal amount of Notes represented by such global Note must look solely to Euroclear or Clearstream, Luxembourg, as the case may be, for the holder’s share of each payment so made by the Issuer to, or to the order of, the holder of such global Note. No person other than the holder of such global Note shall have any claim against the Issuer in respect of any payments due on the global Note.

 

Interest on the Notes is payable only outside the United States and its possessions, within the meaning of United States Treasury regulation Section 1.163-5(c)(1)(ii)(A). No interest on the Notes shall be paid into an account maintained by the payee in the United States or mailed to an address in the United States unless the payee is described in United States Treasury regulation Sections 1.163-5(c)(2)(v)(B)(1) or (2).

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, payments of principal and interest in respect of global Notes will be made at the specified office of a Paying Agent in the United States (which expression, as used herein, means the United States of America (including the States and the District of Columbia, its territories, its possessions and other areas subject to its jurisdiction)) if:

 

(i)the Issuer has appointed Paying Agents with specified offices outside the United States with the reasonable expectation that such Paying Agents would be able to make payments at such specified offices outside the United States of the full amount owing in respect of the Notes in the manner provided above when due;

 

(ii)payment of the full amount owing in respect of the Notes at such specified offices outside the United States is illegal or effectively precluded by the imposition of exchange controls or other similar restrictions on the full payment or receipt of interest; and

 

(iii)such payment is then permitted under United States law without involving, in the opinion of the Issuer, adverse tax consequences to the Issuer.

 

(e)Payment Day

 

Unless specified otherwise in the applicable Final Terms, if the due date for payment of any amount in respect of any Note or Coupon is not a Payment Day, the holder thereof shall not be entitled to payment until the next following Payment Day in the relevant place and shall not be entitled to further interest or other payment in respect of such delay. For these purposes, unless otherwise specified in the applicable Final Terms, “Payment Day” means any day which (subject to Condition 8) is both:

 

(i)a day on which commercial banks and foreign exchange markets settle payments and are open for general business (including dealing in foreign exchange and foreign currency deposits) in:

 

(A)       the relevant place of presentation (if presentation is required); and

 

(B)any Additional Financial Centre specified in the applicable Final Terms and London; and

 

(ii)(1) in relation to any sum payable in a Specified Currency other than euro or Renminbi, a day on which commercial banks and foreign exchange markets settle

 

Page 70

 

payments and are open for general business (including dealing in foreign exchange and foreign currency deposits) in the principal financial centre of the country of the relevant Specified Currency (which if the Specified Currency is Australian dollars or New Zealand dollars shall be Sydney or Auckland, respectively); (2) in relation to any sum payable in euro, a day on which the TARGET2 System is open; or (3) in relation to any sum payable in Renminbi, a day on which banks and foreign exchange markets are open for business and settlement of Renminbi payments in Hong Kong or such RMB Settlement Centre(s) as may be specified in the applicable Final Terms.

 

(f)Conversion into euro

 

Unless specified otherwise in the applicable Final Terms, if the Issuer is due to make a payment in a currency (the “original currency”) other than euro in respect of any Note or Coupon and the original currency is not available on the foreign exchange markets due to the imposition of exchange controls, the original currency’s replacement or disuse or other circumstances beyond the Issuer’s control, the Issuer will be entitled to satisfy its obligations in respect of such payment by making payment in euro on the basis of the spot exchange rate (the “Euro FX Rate”) at which the original currency is offered in exchange for euro in the London foreign exchange market (or, at the option of the Issuer or its designated Calculation Agent, in the foreign exchange market of any other financial centre which is then open for business) at noon, London time, two Business Days prior to the date on which payment is due or, if the Euro FX Rate is not available on that date, on the basis of a substitute exchange rate determined by the Issuer or by its designated Calculation Agent acting in its absolute discretion from such source(s) and at such time as it may select. For the avoidance of doubt, the Euro FX Rate or substitute exchange rate as aforesaid may be such that the resulting euro amount is zero and in such event no amount of euro or the original currency will be payable. Any payment made in euro or non-payment in accordance with this Condition 5(f) will not constitute an Event of Default under Condition 9.

 

(g)Interpretation of Principal and Interest

(B)if the amount payable in respect of any Zero Coupon Note upon redemption of such Zero Coupon Note pursuant to Condition 6(b) or upon its becoming due and repayable as provided in Condition 9 is not paid or available for payment when due, the amount due and repayable in respect of such Zero Coupon Note shall be the Amortised Face Amount of such Zero Coupon Note calculated as provided above as though the references in sub-paragraph (A) to the date fixed for redemption or the date upon which the Zero Coupon Note becomes due and repayable were replaced by references to the date (the “Reference Date”) which is the earlier of:

(ix)any Tax required to be withheld or deducted pursuant to Sections 1471 through to 1474 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, any regulations or other guidance promulgated thereunder or any official interpretations thereof (including under an agreement described under Section 1471(b)), or pursuant to any intergovernmental agreement implementing an alternative approach thereto or any implementing law in relation thereto; or

All liability of the Issuer, the Agent, the TCCI Registrar or the TCCI Transfer Agent, the TMCC Registrar or the TMCC Transfer Agent with respect thereto shall cease when the Notes and Coupons become void.

 

As used herein, the “Relevant Date” means the date on which such payment first becomes due, except that, if the full amount of the moneys payable has not been duly received by the Agent or, as the case may be, the Registrar on or prior to such due date, it means the date on which, the full amount of such moneys having been so received, notice to that effect is duly given to the Noteholders in accordance with Condition 16.

The Issuer is entitled to vary or terminate the appointment of any Paying Agent appointed under the terms of the Agency Agreement, or the TCCI Registrar or the TCCI Transfer Agent appointed under the terms of the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, or the TMCC Registrar or the TMCC Transfer Agent appointed under the terms of the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, and/or appoint additional or other Paying Agents or Transfer Agents and/or approve any change in the specified office through which any Paying Agent, TCCI Registrar, TCCI Transfer Agent, TMCC Registrar or TMCC Transfer Agent acts, provided that:

 

(i)so long as the Notes are admitted to trading or listed on any stock exchange or other relevant authority, there will at all times be a Paying Agent with a specified office in

 

Page 85

 

such place as may be required by the rules and regulations of the relevant stock exchange or other relevant authority;

 

(ii)there will at all times be an Agent; and

 

(iii)in respect of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc., there will at all times be a TCCI Registrar and in respect of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation, there will at all times be a TMCC Registrar.

 

In addition, the Issuer shall forthwith appoint a Paying Agent having a specified office in the United States only in the circumstances described in the final paragraph of Condition 5(d). Any variation, termination, appointment or change shall only take effect (other than in the case of insolvency, when it shall be of immediate effect) after not less than 30 or more than 45 days’ prior notice thereof shall have been given to the Noteholders in accordance with Condition 16.

 

In addition, in relation to Registered Notes issued or to be issued by it, Toyota Credit Canada Inc. or Toyota Motor Credit Corporation, as the case may be, is entitled to vary or terminate the appointment of any registrar, transfer agent or paying agent and/or appoint additional transfer agents, paying agents and/or approve any change in the specified office through which any such registrar, transfer agent or paying agent acts, provided that there will at all times be a registrar and a paying agent capable of making payments in the Specified Currency and (in the case of global Registered Notes) to the clearing system specified in the applicable Final Terms.

 

The Agency Agreement or the TCCI Note Agency Agreement or the TMCC Note Agency Agreement contains provisions permitting any entity into which any Paying Agent and (in the case of the TCCI Note Agency Agreement and the TMCC Note Agency Agreement only) any registrar, paying agent or transfer agent is merged or converted or with which it is consolidated or to which it transfers all or substantially all of its assets to become the successor paying agent, registrar or transfer agent (as appropriate).

 

12.Exchange of Talons

 

On and after the Interest Payment Date, on which the final Coupon comprised in any Coupon sheet matures, the Talon (if any) forming part of such Coupon sheet may be surrendered at the specified office of the Agent or any other Paying Agent in exchange for a further Coupon sheet including (if such further Coupon sheet does not include Coupons to (and including) the final date for the payment of interest due in respect of the Note to which it appertains) a further Talon, subject to the provisions of Condition 8. Each Talon shall, for the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, be deemed to mature on the Interest Payment Date on which the final Coupon comprised in the relative Coupon sheet matures.

 

13.Consolidation or Merger

 

The Issuer may consolidate with, or sell, lease or convey all or substantially all of its assets as an entirety to, or merge with or into any other corporation provided that in any such case, (i) either the Issuer shall be the continuing corporation, or the successor corporation shall be a corporation organised and existing under the laws of the jurisdiction in which the Issuer is incorporated or any province, territory, state or other political subdivision thereof and such successor corporation shall expressly assume the due and punctual payment of the principal of and interest (including Additional Amounts as provided in Condition 7) on all the Notes and Coupons, according to their tenor, and the due and punctual performance and observance of all of the covenants and conditions of the Notes to be performed by the Issuer by an amendment to the Agency Agreement or, as the case may be, the TCCI Note Agency Agreement or the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, executed by such successor corporation, the Issuer and the Agent or the TCCI Registrar and the TCCI Transfer Agent or the TMCC Registrar and the TMCC Transfer Agent, as the case may be, and (ii) immediately after giving effect to such transaction, no Event of Default under Condition 9, and

 

Page 86

 

no event which, with notice or lapse of time or both, would become such an Event of Default shall have happened and be continuing. In case of any such consolidation, merger, sale, lease or conveyance and upon any such assumption by the successor corporation, such successor corporation shall succeed to and be substituted for the Issuer, with the same effect as if it had been named herein as the Issuer, and the predecessor corporation, except in the event of a conveyance by way of lease, shall be relieved of any further obligation under the Notes and the Agency Agreement or, as the case may be, the TCCI Note Agency Agreement or the TMCC Note Agency Agreement.

The Agency Agreement, (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, the Notes and any Coupons attached to the Notes may be amended by the Issuer and (in the case of the Agency Agreement) the Agent and (in the case of the TCCI Note Agency Agreement) the TCCI Registrar and the TCCI Transfer Agent, and (in the case of the TMCC Note Agency Agreement) the TMCC Registrar and the TMCC Transfer Agent, without the consent of the holder of any Note or Coupon (i) for the purpose of curing any ambiguity, or for curing, correcting or supplementing any defective provision contained therein, or to evidence the succession of another corporation to the Issuer as provided in Condition 13 or provide for substitution of the Issuer as provided in Condition 14, (ii) to make any further modifications of the terms of the Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, necessary or desirable to allow for the issuance of any additional Notes (which modifications shall not be materially adverse to holders of outstanding Notes), or (iii) in any manner which the Issuer and (in the case of the Agency Agreement) the Agent and (in the case of the TCCI Note Agency Agreement) the TCCI Registrar and the TCCI Transfer Agent and (in the case of the TMCC Note Agency Agreement) the TMCC Registrar and the TMCC Transfer Agent may deem necessary or desirable and which shall not materially adversely affect the interests of the holders of the Notes and Coupons. In addition, with the written consent of holders of a majority in aggregate nominal amount of the Notes then outstanding affected thereby, or by resolution adopted by the holders of a majority in aggregate nominal amount of Notes then outstanding present or represented at a meeting of the holders of the Notes affected thereby at which a quorum is present, as provided in the Agency Agreement (provided that such resolution shall be approved by the holders of not less than 25 per cent. of the aggregate nominal amount of Notes then outstanding affected thereby), the Issuer and the Agent and (in the case of the TCCI Note Agency Agreement) the TCCI Registrar and the TCCI Transfer Agent and (in the case of the TMCC Note Agency Agreement) the TMCC Registrar and the TMCC Transfer Agent may from time to time and at any time enter into agreements modifying or amending the Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, or the Terms and Conditions and Coupons for the purpose of adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any provisions of the Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation), the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, or of modifying in any manner the rights of the holders of Notes and Coupons; provided, however, that no such agreement shall, without the consent or the affirmative vote of the holder of each Note affected thereby, (i) change the stated maturity of the principal of or any instalment of interest on any Note, (ii) reduce the nominal amount of or interest on any Note, (iii) change the obligation of the Issuer to pay Additional Amounts as provided in Condition 7, (iv) reduce the percentage in nominal amount of outstanding Notes the consent of the holders of which is necessary to modify or amend the Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit

Corporation) the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, or the Terms and Conditions or to waive any future compliance or past default, or (v) reduce the percentage in nominal amount of outstanding Notes the consent of the holders of which is required at any meeting of holders of Notes at which a resolution is adopted. The quorum at any meeting called to adopt a resolution will be persons holding or representing a majority in aggregate nominal amount of the Notes then outstanding affected thereby and at any adjourned meeting will be one or more persons holding or representing 25 per cent. in aggregate nominal amount of such Notes then outstanding affected thereby. Any instrument given by or on behalf of any holder of a Note in connection with any consent to any such modification, amendment or waiver will be irrevocable once given and will be conclusive and binding on all subsequent holders of such Note. Any modifications, amendments or waivers to the Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) to the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) to the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, or to the Terms and Conditions and Coupons will be conclusive and binding on all holders of Notes and Coupons, whether or not they have given such consent or were present at any meeting, and whether or not notation of such modifications, amendments or waivers is made upon the Notes and Coupons. It shall not be necessary for the consent of the holders of Notes under this Condition 15 to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment, but it shall be sufficient if such consent shall approve the substance thereof.

 

Notes authenticated and delivered after the execution of any amendment to the Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) to the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) to the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, the Notes or Coupons may bear a notation in form approved by the Agent, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) the TCCI Registrar and the TCCI Transfer Agent, or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) the TMCC Registrar and the TMCC Transfer Agent, as to any matter provided for in such amendment to the Agency Agreement or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) to the TCCI Note Agency Agreement or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) to the TMCC Note Agency Agreement.

 

New Notes so modified as to conform, in the opinion of the Agent or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) the TCCI Registrar or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) the TMCC Registrar and the Issuer, to any modification contained in any such amendment may be prepared by the Issuer, authenticated by the Agent or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) the TCCI Registrar or the TCCI Transfer Agent or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) the TMCC Registrar or the TMCC Transfer Agent and delivered in exchange for the Notes then outstanding.

 

For the purposes of this Condition 15, Condition 3 and Condition 9, the term “outstanding” means, in relation to the Notes, all Notes issued under the Agency Agreement or the TCCI Note Agency Agreement or the TMCC Note Agency Agreement other than (i) those which have been redeemed in full in accordance with the Agency Agreement or the TCCI Note Agency Agreement or the TMCC Note Agency Agreement or these Terms and Conditions, (ii) those in respect of which the date for redemption in accordance with these Terms and Conditions has occurred and the redemption moneys therefor (including all interest (if any) accrued but unpaid thereon to the date for such redemption and any interest (if any) payable under these Terms and Conditions after such date) have been duly paid to the Agent as provided in the Agency Agreement or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc.) to the TCCI Registrar or the TCCI Transfer Agent or (in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation) to the TMCC Registrar or the TMCC Transfer Agent (and, where appropriate, notice has been given to the Noteholders in accordance with Condition 16) and remain available for payment against presentation of the Notes, (iii) those which have become void under Condition 8, (iv) those which have been purchased or otherwise acquired and cancelled as provided in Condition 6, and those

 

Page 91

 

which have been purchased or otherwise acquired and are being held by the Issuer for subsequent resale or reissuance as provided in Condition 6 during the time so held, (v) those mutilated or defaced Notes which have been surrendered in exchange for replacement Notes pursuant to Condition 10, (vi) (for the purposes only of determining how many Notes are outstanding and without prejudice to their status for any other purpose) those Notes alleged to have been lost, stolen or destroyed and in respect of which replacement Notes have been issued pursuant to Condition 10, and (vii) temporary global Notes to the extent that they shall have been duly exchanged in whole for permanent global Notes or definitive Notes and permanent global Notes or global Registered Notes to the extent that they shall have been duly exchanged in whole for definitive Notes, in each case pursuant to their respective provisions.

 

16.Notices

 

All notices regarding the Notes shall be validly given if published in a leading English language daily newspaper of general circulation in London (which is expected to be the Financial Times) or, if this is not practicable, one other such English language newspaper as the Issuer, in consultation with the Agent, shall decide. The Issuer shall also ensure that notices are duly published in a manner which complies with the rules and regulations of any stock exchange on which the Notes are for the time being admitted to trading or are listed by another relevant authority. Any such notice published as aforesaid shall be deemed to have been given on the date of such publication or, if published more than once, on the date of the first such publication. Couponholders will be deemed for all purposes to have notice of the contents of any notice given to the holders of the Notes in accordance with this Condition 16.

 

Until such time as any definitive Notes are issued, so long as the global Note(s) is or are held in its or their entirety on behalf of Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg, there may be substituted for such publication in such newspaper the delivery of the relevant notice to Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg for communication by them to the holders of the Notes; provided that, for so long as any Notes are admitted to trading on a stock exchange or are listed by another relevant authority and the rules of that stock exchange or relevant authority so require, such notice will be published in a daily newspaper of general circulation in the place or places required by those rules. Any notice delivered to Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg shall be deemed to have been given to the holders of the Notes on the third day after the day on which the said notice was given to Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg, or on such other day as is specified in the applicable Final Terms.

 

Notices to holders of Registered Notes in definitive form will be deemed to be validly given if sent by mail to them (or, in the case of joint holders of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc., to the first-named in the TCCI Register or, in the case of joint holders of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation, to the first-named in the TMCC Register) at their respective addresses as recorded in such register, and will be deemed to have been validly given on the fourth business day after the date of such mailing.

 

Notices to be given by any holder of the Notes shall be in writing and given by lodging the same, together with the relative Note or Notes, in the case of Bearer Notes, with the Agent or, in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc., with the TCCI Registrar or, in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation, with the TMCC Registrar. While any of the Notes are represented by a global Note, such notice may be given by any holder of a Note to, in the case of Bearer Notes, the Agent or, in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Credit Canada Inc., the TCCI Registrar or, in the case of Registered Notes issued by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation, the TMCC Registrar, via Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg, as the case may be, in such manner as the Agent or TCCI Registrar or TMCC Registrar and Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg, as the case may be, may approve for this purpose.

17.Further Issues

 

The Issuer shall be at liberty from time to time without the consent of the Noteholders or Couponholders to create and issue further notes ranking pari passu in all respects (or in all respects save for the Issue Date, the amount and the date of the first payment of interest thereon and/or the Issue Price) and so that the same shall be consolidated and form a single series with the outstanding Notes and references in these Terms and Conditions to “Notes” shall be construed accordingly.

 

18.Disapplication

 

The Notes confer no right under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any term of the Notes, but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party which exists or is available apart from that Act.

 

19.Governing Law and Submission to Jurisdiction

 

The Agency Agreement, the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, the Notes, the Coupons and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with the Agency Agreement, the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, the Notes and the Coupons are governed by, and shall be construed in accordance with, English law.

 

The Issuer irrevocably agrees, for the exclusive benefit of the Noteholders and the Couponholders, to the jurisdiction of the English courts for all purposes in connection with the Agency Agreement, the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, the Notes, the Coupons and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with the Agency Agreement, the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, the Notes and the Coupons and in relation thereto the Issuer has appointed Toyota Financial Services (UK) PLC as its agent for service of process on its behalf and has agreed that in the event of Toyota Financial Services (UK) PLC ceasing so to act or ceasing to be registered in England, it will appoint another person as its agent for service of process. Without prejudice to the foregoing, to the extent allowed by law, the Issuer further irrevocably agrees that any suit, action or proceedings arising out of or in connection with the Agency Agreement, the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, the TMCC Note Agency Agreement the Notes and the Coupons (including any suit, action or proceedings relating to any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with the Agency Agreement, the TCCI Note Agency Agreement, the TMCC Note Agency Agreement, the Notes and the Coupons) may be brought in any other court of competent jurisdiction.

The Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note have been admitted to the Official List and admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange plc’s Regulated Market.4 This Global Note is a Temporary Global Note in respect of a duly authorised issue of [Specified Currency and Nominal Amount of Tranche] [Specified Currency and Nominal Amount of Series] Notes Due [Year of Maturity] (the Notes) of [Specified Currency and Specified Denomination] each of 5[Toyota Motor Finance (Netherlands) B.V.] [Toyota Credit Canada Inc.] [Toyota Finance Australia Limited] [Toyota Motor Credit Corporation] (the Issuer). References herein to the Conditions shall be to the Terms and Conditions of the Notes (the Conditions) as set out in Appendix A to the Agency Agreement (as defined below) as modified and supplemented by the information set out in Part A of the Final Terms relating to the Notes (which are attached hereto) and, in the event of any conflict between the provisions of the Conditions and the information set out in the Final Terms, the latter shall prevail. Words and expressions defined in the Conditions and the Final Terms and not otherwise defined herein shall have the same meanings when used in this Temporary Global Note.

 

This Temporary Global Note is issued subject to, and with the benefit of, the Conditions and the Agency Agreement dated 12 September 2014 (the Agency Agreement, which expression shall be construed as a reference to that agreement as the same may be amended, supplemented and/or restated from time to time), between Toyota Motor Finance (Netherlands) B.V., Toyota Credit Canada Inc., Toyota Finance Australia Limited, Toyota Motor Credit Corporation and The Bank of New York Mellon (the Agent); provided, however, that references to the Conditions shall mean the Conditions in effect on the date of this Temporary Global Note.

 

This Temporary Global Note is to be held by a common depositary (or, if the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note, a common safekeeper) for Euroclear Bank SA/NV (Euroclear), Clearstream Banking, société anonyme (Clearstream, Luxembourg) and/or such other relevant clearing agency as is specified in the Final Terms on behalf of account holders which have the Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note credited to their respective securities accounts therewith from time to time.

 

For value received, the Issuer, subject to and in accordance with the Conditions, promises to pay to the bearer hereof on the Maturity Date, and/or on such earlier date(s) as all or any of the Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note may become due and repayable in accordance with the Conditions, the amount payable under the Conditions in respect of the Notes then represented by this Temporary Global Note on each such date and to pay interest (if any) on the nominal amount of the Notes from time to time represented by this Temporary Global Note calculated and payable as provided in the Conditions together with any other sums payable under the Conditions, upon (if the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note) presentation and, at maturity, surrender of this Temporary Global Note to or to the order of the Agent at the principal office of the Agent in London, or at the offices of any of the other paying agents located outside the United States of America, its territories and possessions, any State of the United States and the District of Columbia (except as provided in the Conditions) from time to time appointed by the Issuer in respect of the Notes, but in each case subject to the requirements as to certification provided herein. Any moneys paid by the Issuer to the Agent for the payment of principal or interest on any Notes and remaining unclaimed at the end of

one year after such principal or interest shall have become due and payable (whether at maturity, upon call for redemption or otherwise) shall then be repaid to the Issuer and upon such repayment all liability of the Agent with respect thereto shall thereupon cease, without, however, limiting in any way any obligation the Issuer may have to pay the principal of or interest on this Temporary Global Note as the same shall become due.

 

If the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note, the nominal amount of Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note shall be the aggregate amount from time to time entered in the records of both Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg (together, the relevant Clearing Systems). The records of the relevant Clearing Systems (which expression in this Temporary Global Note means the records that each relevant Clearing System holds for its customers which reflect the amount of such customer’s interest in the Notes) shall be conclusive evidence of the nominal amount of Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note and, for these purposes, a statement issued by a relevant Clearing System (which statement shall be made available to the bearer upon request) stating the nominal amount of Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note at any time shall be conclusive evidence of the records of the relevant Clearing System at that time.

 

If the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note, the nominal amount of the Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note shall be the aggregate nominal amount stated in the Final Terms or, if lower, the nominal amount most recently entered by or on behalf of the Issuer in the relevant column in Schedule Two hereto.

 

On any redemption of, or payment of interest being made in respect of, or purchase and cancellation of, any of the Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note, the Issuer shall procure that:

 

(i)if the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note, details of such redemption, payment or purchase and cancellation (as the case may be) shall be entered pro rata in the records of the relevant Clearing Systems and, upon any such entry being made, the nominal amount of the Notes recorded in the records of the relevant Clearing Systems and represented by this Temporary Global Note shall be reduced by the aggregate nominal amount of the Notes so redeemed or purchased and cancelled; or

 

(ii)if the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note, details of such redemption, payment or purchase and cancellation (as the case may be) shall be entered by or on behalf of the Issuer in Schedule Two hereto and the relevant space in Schedule Two hereto recording any such redemption, payment or purchase and cancellation (as the case may be) shall be signed by or on behalf of the Issuer. Upon any such redemption or purchase and cancellation, the nominal amount of this Temporary Global Note and the Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note shall be reduced by the aggregate nominal amount of such Notes so redeemed or purchased and cancelled.

 

Payments due in respect of Notes for the time being represented by this Temporary Global Note shall be made to the bearer of this Temporary Global Note and each payment so made will discharge the Issuer’s obligations in respect thereof. Any failure to make the entries referred to above shall not affect such discharge.

6[For the purposes only of the Interest Act (Canada), in respect of Fixed Rate Notes the nominal yearly rate of interest which is equivalent to the Fixed Rate of Interest per annum, computed on the basis of a year of 360 days consisting of 12 months of 30 days each, for any period of less than one year may be calculated by multiplying the Fixed Rate of Interest by a fraction of which: (a) the numerator is the product of (i) the actual number of days in a year commencing on and including the first day of such period and ending on but not including the corresponding day in the next calendar year and (ii) the sum of (y) the product of 30 and the number of complete months elapsed in such period and (z) the number of days elapsed in any incomplete month in such period treating all calendar months as having 30 days; and (b) the denominator is the product of 360 and the actual number of days in such period (including the first but excluding the last, such day). For the purposes only of the Interest Act (Canada), in respect of Floating Rate Notes the nominal yearly rate of interest which is equivalent to the Rate of Interest per annum for any Specified Period (as defined in the Final Terms) calculated on the basis of a year of 365 or 360 days may be calculated by multiplying such Rate of Interest by a fraction of which the numerator is the actual number of days in a year commencing on and including the first day of such Specified Period and ending on but not including the corresponding day in the next calendar year and the denominator is 365 or 360, as the case may be.]

 

Prior to the Exchange Date (as defined below), all payments (if any) on this Temporary Global Note will only be made to the bearer hereof to the extent that there is presented to the Agent by a relevant Clearing System a certificate to the effect that it has received from or in respect of a person entitled to a particular nominal amount of the Notes (as shown by its records) a certificate of non-US beneficial ownership in the form required by it. On or after the Exchange Date the bearer of this Temporary Global Note will not be entitled to receive any payment of interest due unless, upon due certification, exchange of this Temporary Global Note is improperly withheld or refused.

 

On or after the date which is 40 days after the completion of the distribution of the Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note or, at the option of the Issuer (with the consent of the lead manager(s) of the Tranche(s) of Notes of the relevant Series) the date which is 40 days after the completion of the distribution of any additional issuance or issuances of one or more Tranches of Notes of the same Series that occurs within the 40 day period after the issue of this Temporary Global Note (the latest of such dates referred to as the Exchange Date), this Temporary Global Note may be exchanged in whole or in part (free of charge) for, as specified in the Final Terms, either (a) Definitive Bearer Notes and (if applicable) Coupons and Talons in or substantially in the forms set out in Appendices B-3, B-4 and B-5, respectively, to the Agency Agreement (on the basis that all appropriate details have been included on the face of such Definitive Bearer Notes and (if applicable) Coupons and Talons and the Final Terms (or the relevant provisions of the Final Terms) have either been endorsed on or attached to such Definitive Bearer Notes) or, (b) either (i) if the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note, interests recorded in the records of the relevant Clearing Systems in a Permanent Global Note, or (ii) if the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note, a Permanent Global Note which, in either case, is in the form or substantially in the form set out in Appendix B-2 to the Agency Agreement (together with the Final Terms attached thereto) in each case upon notice being given to the Agent by the relevant Clearing System acting on the instructions of any holder of an interest in this Temporary Global Note.

The Issuer shall procure that, as appropriate, (i) the Definitive Bearer Notes or (as the case may be) the Permanent Global Note (where the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note) shall be so issued and delivered or (ii) the interests in the Permanent Global Note (where the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note) shall be recorded in the records of the relevant Clearing System, in each case in exchange for only that portion of this Temporary Global Note in respect of which there shall have been presented to the Agent by a relevant Clearing System a certificate to the effect that it has received from or in respect of a person entitled to a beneficial interest in a particular nominal amount of the Notes (as shown by its records) a certificate of non-US beneficial ownership from such person in the form required by it and, in the case of Definitive Bearer Notes, subject to such notice period and payment of costs as may be specified in the Final Terms.

 

If Definitive Bearer Notes and (if applicable) Coupons and Talons have already been issued in exchange for all the Notes represented for the time being by the Permanent Global Note, then this Temporary Global Note may only thereafter be exchanged for Definitive Bearer Notes and (if applicable) Coupons and Talons pursuant to the terms hereof.

 

On an exchange of the whole of this Temporary Global Note, this Temporary Global Note shall be surrendered to or to the order of the Agent. On an exchange of part only of this Temporary Global Note, the Issuer shall procure that:

 

(i)if the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note, details of such exchange shall be entered pro rata in the records of the relevant Clearing Systems; or

 

(ii)if the Final Terms indicate that this Temporary Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note, details of such exchange shall be entered by or on behalf of the Issuer in Schedule Two hereto and the relevant space in Schedule Two hereto recording such exchange shall be signed by or on behalf of the Issuer whereupon the nominal amount of this Temporary Global Note and the Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note shall be reduced by the nominal amount so exchanged. If, following the issue of a Permanent Global Note in exchange for some of the Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note, further Notes represented by this Temporary Global Note are to be exchanged pursuant to this paragraph, such exchange may be effected, without the issue of a new Permanent Global Note, by the Issuer or its agent endorsing Schedule Two of the Permanent Global Note previously issued to reflect an increase in the aggregate nominal amount of the Permanent Global Note which would otherwise have been issued on such exchange.

 

Until the exchange of the whole of this Temporary Global Note as aforesaid, the bearer hereof shall in all respects (except as otherwise provided in this Temporary Global Note) be entitled to the same benefits as if it were bearer of Definitive Bearer Notes, and the relative Coupons and Talons in the form set out in Appendices B-3, B-4 and B-5, respectively, to the Agency Agreement.

 

Accordingly, except as ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction or as required by law or applicable regulation, the Issuer and any Paying Agent may deem and treat the bearer hereof as the absolute owner of this Temporary Global Note for all purposes (whether or not this Temporary Global Note shall be overdue and notwithstanding any notice of ownership or writing hereon or notice of any previous loss or theft or trust or other interest herein). In the event that this Temporary Global Note (or any part of it) has become due and repayable in

 

Page 100

This Global Note is a Permanent Global Note in respect of a duly authorised issue of [Specified Currency and Nominal Amount of Tranche] [Specified Currency and Nominal Amount of Series] Notes Due [Year of Maturity] (the Notes) of [Specified Currency and Specified Denomination] each of 5[Toyota Motor Finance (Netherlands) B.V.] [Toyota Credit Canada Inc.] [Toyota Finance Australia Limited] [Toyota Motor Credit Corporation] (the Issuer). References herein to the Conditions shall be to the Terms and Conditions of the Notes (the Conditions) as set out in Appendix A to the Agency Agreement (as defined below) as modified and supplemented by Part A of the Final Terms relating to the Notes (which are attached hereto) and, in the event of any conflict between the provisions of the Conditions and the information set out in the Final Terms, the latter shall prevail. Words and expressions defined in the Conditions and the Final Terms and not otherwise defined herein shall have the same meanings when used in this Permanent Global Note.

 

This Permanent Global Note is issued subject to, and with the benefit of, the Conditions and the Agency Agreement dated 12 September 2014 (the Agency Agreement, which expression shall be construed as a reference to that agreement as the same may be amended, supplemented and/or restated from time to time), between Toyota Motor Finance (Netherlands) B.V., Toyota Credit Canada Inc., Toyota Finance Australia Limited, Toyota Motor Credit Corporation and The Bank of New York Mellon (the Agent); provided, however, that references to the Conditions shall mean the Conditions in effect on the date of issue of the Temporary Global Note that originally represented this Permanent Global Note.

 

This Permanent Global Note is to be held by a common depositary (or, if the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note, a common safekeeper) for Euroclear Bank SA/NV (Euroclear), Clearstream Banking, société anonyme (Clearstream, Luxembourg) and/or such other relevant clearing agency as is specified in the Final Terms on behalf of account holders which have the Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note credited to their respective securities accounts therewith from time to time.

 

For value received, the Issuer, subject to and in accordance with the Conditions, promises to pay to the bearer hereof on the Maturity Date, and/or on such earlier date(s) as all or any of the Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note may become due and repayable in accordance with the Conditions, the amount payable under the Conditions in respect of the Notes then represented by this Permanent Global Note on each such date and to pay interest (if any) on the nominal amount of the Notes from time to time represented by this Permanent Global Note calculated and payable as provided in the Conditions together with any other sums payable under the Conditions, upon (if the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note) presentation and, at maturity, surrender of this Permanent Global Note to or to the order of the Agent at the principal office of the Agent in London, or at the offices of any of the other paying agents located outside of the United States of America, its territories and possessions, any State of the United States and the District of Columbia (except as provided in the Conditions) from time to time appointed by the Issuer in respect of the Notes, but in each case subject to the requirements as to certification provided herein. Any moneys paid by the Issuer to the Agent for the payment of principal or interest on any Notes and remaining unclaimed at the end of

one year after such principal or interest shall have become due and payable (whether at maturity, upon call for redemption or otherwise) shall then be repaid to the Issuer and upon such repayment all liability of the Agent with respect thereto shall thereupon cease, without, however, limiting in any way any obligation the Issuer may have to pay the principal of or interest on this Permanent Global Note as the same shall become due.

 

If the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note, the nominal amount of Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note shall be the aggregate amount from time to time entered in the records of both Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg (together, the relevant Clearing Systems). The records of the relevant Clearing Systems (which expression in this Permanent Global Note means the records that each relevant Clearing System holds for its customers which reflect the amount of such customer’s interest in the Notes) shall be conclusive evidence of the nominal amount of Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note and, for these purposes, a statement issued by a relevant Clearing System (which statement shall be made available to the bearer upon request) stating the nominal amount of Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note at any time shall be conclusive evidence of the records of the relevant Clearing System at that time.

 

If the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note, the nominal amount of the Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note shall be the aggregate nominal amount stated in the Final Terms or, if lower, the nominal amount most recently entered by or on behalf of the Issuer in the relevant column in Schedule Two hereto.

 

On any redemption of, or payment of interest being made in respect of, or purchase and cancellation of, any of the Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note, the Issuer shall procure that:

 

(i)if the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note, details of such redemption, payment or purchase and cancellation (as the case may be) shall be entered pro rata in the records of the relevant Clearing Systems and, upon any such entry being made, the nominal amount of the Notes recorded in the records of the relevant Clearing Systems and represented by this Permanent Global Note shall be reduced by the aggregate nominal amount of the Notes so redeemed or purchased and cancelled; or

 

(ii)if the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note, details of such redemption, payment or purchase and cancellation (as the case may be) shall be entered by or on behalf of the Issuer in Schedule Two hereto and the relevant space in Schedule Two hereto recording any such redemption, payment or purchase and cancellation (as the case may be) shall be signed by or on behalf of the Issuer. Upon any such redemption or purchase and cancellation, the nominal amount of this Permanent Global Note and the Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note shall be reduced by the aggregate nominal amount of such Notes so redeemed or purchased and cancelled.

 

Payments due in respect of Notes for the time being represented by this Permanent Global Note shall be made to the bearer of this Permanent Global Note and each payment so made will discharge the Issuer’s obligations in respect thereof. Any failure to make the entries referred to above shall not affect such discharge.

 

Page 107

 

If the Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note were, on issue, represented by a Temporary Global Note then on any exchange of any such Temporary Global Note for this Permanent Global Note or any part of it, the Issuer shall procure that:

 

(i)if the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note, details of such exchange shall be entered in the records of the relevant Clearing Systems; or

 

(ii)if the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note, details of such exchange shall be entered by or on behalf of the Issuer in Schedule Two hereto and the relevant space in Schedule Two hereto recording any such exchange shall be signed by or on behalf of the Issuer. Upon any such exchange, the nominal amount of this Permanent Global Note and the Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note shall be increased by the nominal amount of the Notes so exchanged.

 

6[For the purposes only of the Interest Act (Canada), in respect of Fixed Rate Notes the nominal yearly rate of interest which is equivalent to the Fixed Rate of Interest per annum, computed on the basis of a year of 360 days consisting of 12 months of 30 days each, for any period of less than one year may be calculated by multiplying the Fixed Rate of Interest by a fraction of which: (a) the numerator is the product of (i) the actual number of days in a year commencing on and including the first day of such period and ending on but not including the corresponding day in the next calendar year and (ii) the sum of (y) the product of 30 and the number of complete months elapsed in such period and (z) the number of days elapsed in any incomplete month in such period treating all calendar months as having 30 days; and (b) the denominator is the product of 360 and the actual number of days in such period (including the first but excluding the last, such day). For the purposes only of the Interest Act (Canada), in respect of Floating Rate Notes the nominal yearly rate of interest which is equivalent to the Rate of Interest per annum for any Specified Period (as defined in the Final Terms) calculated on the basis of a year of 365 or 360 days may be calculated by multiplying such Rate of Interest by a fraction of which the numerator is the actual number of days in a year commencing on and including the first day of such Specified Period and ending on but not including the corresponding day in the next calendar year and the denominator is 365 or 360, as the case may be.]

 

In certain circumstances further notes may be issued which are intended on issue to be consolidated and form a single Series with the Notes. In such circumstances the Issuer shall procure that:

 

(i)if the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note, details of such further notes shall be entered in the records of the relevant Clearing Systems; or

 

(ii)if the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note, details of such further notes shall be entered by or on behalf of the Issuer in Schedule Two and the relevant space in Schedule Two recording such further notes shall be signed by or on behalf of the Issuer, whereupon the nominal amount of this Permanent Global Note and the Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note shall be increased by the nominal amount of any such further notes so issued.

This Permanent Global Note may (under the circumstances set forth in the Conditions and the Final Terms) be exchanged, in whole, but not in part, for Definitive Bearer Notes and (if applicable) Coupons and Talons in or substantially in the forms set out in Appendices B-3, B-4 and B-5, respectively, of the Agency Agreement (on the basis that all appropriate details have been included on the face of such Definitive Bearer Notes and (if applicable) Coupons and Talons and the Final Terms (or the relevant provisions of the Final Terms) have been either endorsed on or attached to such Definitive Bearer Notes) in denominations of [Specified Currency and Specified Denomination] each upon either, as specified in the Final Terms:

 

(a)upon not less than 60 days’ written notice being given to the Agent by the relevant Clearing Systems acting on the instructions of any holder of an interest in this Permanent Global Note; or

 

(b)only upon the occurrence of an Exchange Event; or

 

(c)at any time at the request of the Issuer.

 

An Exchange Event means:

 

(i)an Event of Default (as defined in Condition 9) has occurred and is continuing; or

 

(ii)the Issuer has been notified that both Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg (or any other agreed clearing system in which this Permanent Global Note is being held) have been closed for business for a continuous period of 14 days (other than by reason of holiday, statutory or otherwise) or have announced an intention permanently to cease business or have in fact done so and, as a result, Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg or such other agreed clearing system in which this Permanent Global Note is being held are no longer willing or able to discharge properly their responsibilities with respect to this Permanent Global Note and the Agent and the Issuer are unable to locate a qualified successor; or

 

(iii)the Issuer has or will become subject to adverse tax consequences which would not be suffered were the Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note in definitive form.

 

If this Permanent Global Note is exchangeable following the occurrence of an Exchange Event:

 

(A)the Issuer will promptly give notice to Noteholders in accordance with Condition 16 if an Exchange Event occurs; and

 

(B)in the event of the occurrence of any Exchange Event, one or more of the relevant Clearing Systems (acting on the instructions of any holder of an interest in this Permanent Global Note) may give notice to the Agent requesting exchange and, in the event of the occurrence of an Exchange Event as described in (iii) above, the Issuer may also give notice to the Agent requesting exchange. Any such exchange shall occur not later than 45 days after the date of receipt of the first relevant notice by the Agent.

 

Page 109

 

The exchange, if any, will be made upon presentation of this Permanent Global Note by the bearer hereof on any day (other than a Saturday or a Sunday) on which banks are open for general business in London at the principal office of the Agent in London; provided, however, the first notice given to the Agent by Euroclear, Clearstream, Luxembourg and/or such other relevant clearing agency or the Issuer shall give rise to the issue of Definitive Bearer Notes for the total amount of Notes represented by this Permanent Global Note. The aggregate nominal amount of Definitive Bearer Notes issued upon an exchange of this Permanent Global Note will be equal to the aggregate nominal amount of this Permanent Global Note submitted by the bearer hereof for exchange (to the extent that such nominal amount does not exceed the aggregate nominal amount of this Permanent Global Note, as adjusted, as shown in Schedule Two hereto if the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is not intended to be a New Global Note, or in the records of the relevant Clearing Systems if the applicable Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note). On an exchange of this Permanent Global Note, this Permanent Global Note shall be surrendered to or to the order of the Agent.

 

Until the exchange of the whole of this Permanent Global Note as aforesaid, the bearer hereof shall in all respects (except as otherwise provided in this Permanent Global Note) be entitled to the same benefits as if it were the bearer of Definitive Bearer Notes, and the relative Coupons and Talons in the form set out in Appendices B-3, B-4 and B-5, respectively, to the Agency Agreement.

 

Accordingly, except as ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction or as required by law or applicable regulation, the Issuer and any Paying Agent may deem and treat the bearer hereof as the absolute owner of this Permanent Global Note for all purposes (whether or not this Permanent Global Note shall be overdue and notwithstanding any notice of ownership or writing hereon or notice of any previous loss or theft or trust or other interest herein). In the event that this Permanent Global Note (or any part of it) has become due and repayable in accordance with Condition 9 and payment in full of the amount due has not been made to the bearer in accordance with the provisions set out above then this Permanent Global Note will become void at 8.00 p.m. (London time) on such day and the bearer will have no further rights under this Permanent Global Note (but without prejudice to the rights which the bearer or any other person may have under Clause 31 of the Agency Agreement in respect of the Notes issued under the Programme Agreement pursuant to which this Permanent Global Note is issued).

 

This Permanent Global Note and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with it shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, English law.

 

This Permanent Global Note shall not be valid unless authenticated by the Agent and, if the Final Terms indicate that this Permanent Global Note is intended to be a New Global Note (i) which is intended to be held in a manner which would allow Eurosystem eligibility, or (ii) in respect of which the Issuer has notified the Agent that effectuation is to be applicable, effectuated by the entity appointed as common safekeeper by the relevant Clearing Systems. This Permanent Global Note may be duly executed on behalf of the Issuer by manual or facsimile signature.
