Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Notes Offering
On September 6, 2018, Cigna Corporation (the “Company”) announced that  Halfmoon Parent, Inc. (“Halfmoon”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, priced an offering (the “Offering”) of $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of Senior Floating Rate Notes due 2020 (the “18-Month Floating Rate Notes”), $1,750,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 3.200% Senior Notes due 2020 (the “2-Year Fixed Rate Notes”), $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of Senior Floating Rate Notes due 2021 (the “3-Year Floating Rate Notes”), $1,250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 3.400% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “3-Year Fixed Rate Notes”), $700,000,000 aggregate principal amount of Senior Floating Rate Notes due 2023 (the “5-Year Floating Rate Notes” and, together with the 18-Month Floating Rate Notes and the 3-Year Floating Rate Notes, the “Floating Rate Notes”), $3,100,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 3.750% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “5-Year Fixed Rate Notes”), $2,200,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 4.125% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “7-Year Fixed Rate Notes”), $3,800,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 4.375% Senior Notes due 2028 (the “10-Year Fixed Rate Notes”), $2,200,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 4.800% Senior Notes due 2038 (the “20-Year Fixed Rate Notes”), and $3,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 4.900% Senior Notes due 2048 (the “30-Year Fixed Rate Notes” and, together with the 2-Year Fixed Rate Notes, the 3-Year Fixed Rate Notes, the 5-Year Fixed Rate Notes, the 7-Year Fixed Rate Notes, the 10-Year Fixed Rate Notes and the 20-Year Fixed Rate Notes, the “Fixed-Rate Notes,” and the Fixed Rate Notes together with the Floating Rate Notes, the “Notes”). On September 17, 2018, the Offering was completed.  The Notes were offered and sold only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to certain non-U.S. persons outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities law and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
The proceeds of the Notes are intended to be used to pay a portion of the cash consideration for the pending acquisition (the “Acquisition”) of Express Scripts Holding Company (“Express Scripts”), to repay certain indebtedness of Express Scripts and its subsidiaries and/or to pay fees and expenses in connection with the foregoing. Any proceeds of the Notes not applied as described in the preceding sentence, if any, are intended to be used by Halfmoon for general corporate purposes, which may include payment of certain of its obligations in respect of the special mandatory redemption of certain of the Notes (as described below) and payment of interest on the Notes.
Indenture
The Notes were issued pursuant to an indenture, dated as of September 17, 2018 (the “Base Indenture”), between Halfmoon and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”), as supplemented by a supplemental indenture, dated as of September 17, 2018 (the “Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), between Halfmoon and the Trustee.
Pursuant to the terms of the Indenture, Halfmoon will pay interest (i) on the 18-Month Floating Rate Notes and 3-Year Floating Rate Notes quarterly on March 17, June 17, September 17 and December 17 of each year, commencing on December 17, 2018, (ii) on the 2-Year Fixed Rate Notes and the 3-Year Fixed Rate Notes semiannually on March 17 and September 17 of each year, commencing on March 17, 2019, (iii) on the 5-Year Floating Rate Notes quarterly on January 15, April 15, July 15 and October 15 of each year, commencing on October 15, 2018, (iv) on the 5-Year Fixed Rate Notes semiannually on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing on January 15, 2019, (v) on the 7-Year Fixed Rate Notes semiannually on May 15 and November 15 of each year, commencing on May 15, 2019, (vi) on the 10-Year Fixed Rate Notes semiannually on April 15 and October 15 of each year, commencing on April 15, 2019, (vii) on the 20-Year Fixed Rate Notes semiannually on February 15 and August 15 of each year, commencing on February 15, 2019, and (viii) on the 30-Year Fixed Rate Notes semiannually on June 15 and December 15 of each year, commencing on June 15, 2019.
 
 

 
The Fixed Rate Notes will bear interest at the applicable rates per annum set forth in the first paragraph above.  The Floating Rate Notes will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to three-month LIBOR (determined as set forth in the Indenture) (“LIBOR”) plus 0.350% for the 18-Month Floating Rate Notes, LIBOR plus 0.650% for the 3-Year Floating Rate Notes and LIBOR plus 0.890% for the 5-Year Floating Rate Notes.
Each series of the Notes, other than the 30-Year Fixed Rate Notes (such notes, the “Mandatorily Redeemable Notes”), are subject to a special mandatory redemption if the Acquisition does not occur before September 4, 2019 or if Halfmoon notifies the Trustee that it will not pursue the consummation of the Acquisition.  The proceeds of the Mandatorily Redeemable Notes are required to be held in segregated collateral accounts pledged to the Trustee for the benefit of the holders of the Mandatorily Redeemable Notes until the earlier of (a) the date on which Halfmoon has certified to the Trustee that the Acquisition has been, or substantially concurrently with the release of the liens shall be, consummated and Cigna and Express Scripts shall have guaranteed the Notes and (b) the special mandatory redemption date. In the event of a special mandatory redemption, Halfmoon will be required to merge with and into the Company (the “Required Merger”) as set forth in the Indenture.  Certain of the Notes are also subject to redemption at Halfmoon’s option as set forth in the Indenture.
From or promptly following the consummation of the Acquisition (provided that it is consummated prior to the consummation of the Required Merger), the Notes are required to be guaranteed by the Company and Express Scripts as set forth in the Indenture.
The Indenture contains customary covenants and restrictions, including covenants that will limit the ability of Halfmoon and its subsidiaries to incur liens on common stock of certain subsidiaries at certain times and to sell Halfmoon’s properties and assets as, or substantially as, an entirety or merge or consolidate with or into other persons. The Indenture also contains other customary provisions regarding events of default, which could result in an acceleration of repayment of the principal amount and accrued and unpaid interest on outstanding Notes of a particular series.
Registration Rights Agreement
On September 17, 2018, in connection with the completion of the Offering, Halfmoon and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, as representatives of the initial purchasers of the Notes, entered into a registration rights agreement with respect to the Notes (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). Halfmoon agreed under the Registration Rights Agreement, following the earlier of the consummation of the Acquisition or the Required Merger, to use its commercially reasonable efforts to (i) file a registration statement on an appropriate registration form with respect to a registered offer to exchange the Notes for new notes, with terms substantially identical in all material respects to the Notes (except that the new notes will not contain terms with respect to transfer restrictions or any increase in annual interest rate), and (ii) cause the registration statement to become effective under the Securities Act.
If the exchange offer is not completed on or before the later of (i) September 17, 2019 and (ii) the 60th day after the consummation of the Acquisition (or, with respect to the 30-Year Fixed Rate Notes, in the event of a special mandatory redemption, by the 60th day after the consummation of the Required Merger) or upon receipt, following the later of (i) September 17, 2019 and (ii) the 60th day after the consummation of the Acquisition (or, with respect to the 30-Year Fixed Rate Notes, in the event of a special mandatory redemption, by the 60th day after the consummation of the Required Merger), of a written request from any initial purchaser representing that it holds Notes that are ineligible to be exchanged in the exchange offer, Halfmoon will use its commercially reasonable efforts to file and to cause to become effective a shelf registration statement relating to resales of the Notes.
If Halfmoon fails to satisfy this obligation (a “Registration Default”) under the Registration Rights Agreement, the annual interest rate on the Notes will increase by 0.25% for the first 90-day period beginning on the day immediately following the Registration Default. The annual interest rate on the Notes will increase by an additional 0.25% for each subsequent 90-day period during which the Registration Default continues, up to a maximum additional interest rate of 1.00% per year. If the Registration Default is corrected, the applicable interest rate on the Notes will revert to the original level.
The foregoing description of the Base Indenture, the Supplemental Indenture and the Registration Rights Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Base Indenture, the Supplemental Indenture and the Registration Rights Agreement, which are filed as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 respectively to this Current Report on Form 8-K, each of which is incorporated herein by reference as though fully set forth herein.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
Information included or incorporated by reference in this communication, and information which may be contained in other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and press releases or other public statements, contains or may contain forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, among other things, statements of plans, objectives, expectations (financial or otherwise) or intentions, including statements concerning the potential future performance of Cigna, Express Scripts, or the combined company, the potential for new laws or regulations, or any impact of any such new laws or regulations, including on the business of Cigna, Express Scripts or the combined company, the ability to achieve the anticipated benefits of the proposed merger, on the expected timeline or at all, the timeline for deleveraging the combined company, and the ability to consummate the proposed merger, on the anticipated timeline or at all, and other statements regarding the parties' future beliefs, expectations, plans, intentions, financial condition or performance.  You may identify forward-looking statements by the use of words such as "believe," "expect," "plan," "intend," "anticipate," "estimate," "predict," "potential," "may," "should," "will" or other words or expressions of similar meaning, although not all forward-looking statements contain such terms.
Forward-looking statements, including as they relate to Express Scripts or Cigna, the management of either such company, the transaction or any expected benefits of the transaction, involve risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ significantly from those projected or suggested in any forward-looking statements. Express Scripts and Cigna do not undertake any obligation to release publicly any revisions to such forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. Any number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by any forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the risks associated with the following:
·
the inability of Express Scripts and Cigna to obtain regulatory approvals required for the merger or the requirement to accept conditions that could reduce the anticipated benefits of the merger as a condition to obtaining regulatory approvals;
·
the possibility that the anticipated benefits from the merger (including anticipated synergies) cannot be realized in full, or at all or may take longer to realize than expected;
·
a longer time than anticipated to consummate the proposed merger;
·
problems regarding the successful integration of the businesses of Express Scripts and Cigna;
·
unexpected costs regarding the proposed merger;
·
diversion of management's attention from ongoing business operations and opportunities;
·
potential litigation associated with the proposed merger;
·
the ability to retain key personnel;
·
the availability of financing;
·
effects on the businesses as a result of uncertainty surrounding the proposed merger;
·
the ability of the combined company to achieve financial, strategic and operational plans and initiatives;
·
the ability of the combined company to predict and manage medical costs and price effectively and develop and maintain good relationships with physicians, hospitals and other health care providers;
 

 
·
the impact of modifications to the combined company's operations and processes;
·
the ability of the combined company to identify potential strategic acquisitions or transactions and realize the expected benefits of such transactions;
·
the substantial level of government regulation over the combined company's business and the potential effects of new laws or regulations or changes in existing laws or regulations;
·
the outcome of litigation relating to the businesses of Express Scripts and Cigna, regulatory audits, investigations, actions and/or guaranty fund assessments;
·
uncertainties surrounding participation in government-sponsored programs such as Medicare;
·
the effectiveness and security of the combined company's information technology and other business systems;
·
unfavorable industry, economic or political conditions, including foreign currency movements;
·
acts of war, terrorism, natural disasters or pandemics; and
·
the industry may be subject to future risks that are described in SEC reports filed by Express Scripts and Cigna.
You should carefully consider these and other relevant factors, including those risk factors in this communication and other risks and uncertainties that affect the businesses of Express Scripts and Cigna described in their respective filings with the SEC, when reviewing any forward-looking statement. These factors are noted for investors as permitted under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Investors should understand it is impossible to predict or identify all such factors or risks. As such, you should not consider the foregoing list, or the risks identified in SEC filings, to be a complete discussion of all potential risks or uncertainties, and should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

(c) The Company may (to the extent that the Trust Indenture Act applies to this Indenture or any Securities, in the circumstances permitted by the Trust Indenture Act) fix any date as the record date for the purpose of determining the Holders of Securities of any series entitled to give or take any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent, waiver or other action, or to vote on any action, authorized or permitted to be given or taken by Holders of Securities of such series.  If not set by the Company prior to the first solicitation of a Holder of Securities of such series made by any Person in respect of any such action, or, in the case of any such vote, prior to such vote, the record date for any such action or vote shall be the 30th day (or, if later, the date of the most recent list of Holders required to be provided pursuant to Section 7.01) prior to such first solicitation or vote, as the case may be.  With regard to any record date for action to be taken by the Holders of one or more series of Securities, only the Holders of Securities of such series on such date (or their duly designated proxies) shall be entitled to give or take, or vote on, the relevant action.

In case by reason of the suspension of regular mail service or by reason of any other cause it shall be impracticable to give such notice by mail, then such notification as shall be made with the approval of the Trustee shall constitute a sufficient notification for every purpose hereunder.

If temporary Securities of any series are issued, the Company will cause definitive Securities of that series to be prepared without unreasonable delay.  After the preparation of definitive Securities of such series, the temporary Securities of such series shall be exchangeable for definitive Securities of such series upon surrender of the temporary Securities of such series at the office or agency of the Company in a Place of Payment for that series, without charge to the Holder.  Upon surrender for cancellation of any one or more temporary Securities of any series, the Company shall execute and (in accordance with a Company Order delivered at or prior to the authentication of the first definitive Security of such series) the Trustee shall authenticate and deliver in exchange therefor one or more definitive Securities of the same series, of authorized denominations and of a like aggregate principal amount and tenor.  Until so exchanged the temporary Securities of any series shall in all respects be entitled to the same benefits under this Indenture as definitive Securities of such series and tenor.
Section 3.05
Registration, Registration of Transfer and Exchange.
The Company shall cause to be kept a security register (the register so maintained being herein sometimes referred to as the Security Register) in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Company shall provide for the registration of Securities and of transfers of Securities.  The Trustee shall have the right to examine the Security Register at all reasonable times.  Unless otherwise designated by the Company by written notice to the Trustee, the Trustee shall be, and is hereby appointed Security Registrar for the purpose of registering Securities and transfers of Securities as herein provided.
Upon surrender for registration of transfer of any Security of any series at the office or agency in a Place of Payment for that series, the Company shall execute, and the Trustee shall authenticate and deliver in the name of the designated transferee or transferees, one or more new Securities of the same series, of any authorized denominations and of a like aggregate principal amount and tenor.
At the option of the Holder, Securities of any series may be exchanged for other Securities of the same series, of any authorized denominations and of a like aggregate principal amount and tenor, upon surrender of the Securities to be exchanged at such office or agency.  Whenever any Securities are so surrendered for exchange, the Company shall execute, and the Trustee shall authenticate and deliver, the Securities which the Holder making the exchange is entitled to receive.
 
-23-

 
All Securities issued upon any registration of transfer or exchange of Securities shall be the valid obligations of the Company, evidencing the same debt, and entitled to the same benefits under this Indenture, as the Securities surrendered upon such registration of transfer or exchange.
Every Security presented or surrendered for registration of transfer or for exchange shall (if so required by the Company or the Trustee) be duly endorsed, or be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Company and the Security Registrar duly executed, by the Holder thereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing.
No service charge shall be made for any registration of transfer or exchange of Securities, but the Company may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any registration of transfer or exchange of Securities, other than exchanges pursuant to Section 3.04, 9.06, or 11.07 not involving any transfer.
The Company shall not be required (i) to issue, register the transfer of or exchange Securities of any series during a period beginning at the opening of business 15 days before the day of the mailing of a notice of redemption of Securities of that series selected for redemption under Section 11.03 and ending at the close of business on the day of such mailing or (ii) to register the transfer of or exchange any Security so selected for redemption in whole or in part, except the unredeemed portion of any Security being redeemed in part.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, except as otherwise specified as contemplated by Section 3.01, a Global Security of any series shall be exchangeable pursuant to this Section for Securities registered in the names of Persons other than the Depository with respect to such series or its nominee only as provided in this paragraph.  A Global Security of a series shall be exchangeable pursuant to this Section if (x) such Depository notifies the Company that it is unwilling or unable to continue as Depository for such series or at any time ceases to be a clearing agency registered as such under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and a successor depository is not appointed by the Company within 90 days, (y) the Company executes and delivers to the Trustee a Company Order that such Global Security shall be so exchangeable or (z) there shall have occurred and be continuing an Event of Default with respect to the Securities of such series and the Depository notifies the Trustee of its decision to exchange any Global Securities of such series for Securities registered in the names of Persons other than the Depository.  Any Global Security that is exchangeable pursuant to the preceding sentence shall be exchangeable for Securities issuable in denominations of $2,000 and any integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof, registered in such names as the Depository for such Global Security shall direct.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, a Global Security may not be transferred except as a whole by the Depository with respect to such Global Security to a nominee of such Depository or by a nominee of such Depository to such Depository or another nominee of such Depository.
Neither the Trustee nor any Agent shall have any responsibility or liability for any actions taken or not taken by the Depository.

Section 3.06
Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost and Stolen Securities.
If any mutilated Security is surrendered to the Trustee, and there is delivered to the Company and the Trustee such security or indemnity as may be required by them to save each of them and any agent of them harmless, the Company shall execute and the Trustee shall authenticate and deliver in exchange therefor a new Security of the same series and of like tenor and principal amount and bearing a number not contemporaneously outstanding.
If there shall be delivered to the Company and the Trustee (i) evidence to their satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Security and (ii) such security or indemnity as may be required by them to save each of them and any agent of either of them harmless, then, in the absence of notice to the Company or the Trustee that such Security has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser, the Company shall execute and the Trustee shall authenticate and deliver, in lieu of any such destroyed, lost or stolen Security, a new Security of the same series and of like tenor and principal amount and bearing a number not contemporaneously outstanding.
In case any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Security has become or is about to become due and payable, the Company in its discretion may, instead of issuing a new Security, pay such Security.
Upon the issuance of any new Security under this Section, the Company may require the payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto and any other expenses (including the fees and expenses of the Trustee) connected therewith.
Every new Security of any series issued pursuant to this Section in lieu of any destroyed, lost or stolen Security shall constitute an original, additional contractual obligation of the Company, whether or not the destroyed, lost or stolen Security shall be at any time enforceable by anyone, and shall be entitled to all the benefits of this Indenture equally and proportionately with any and all other Securities of that series duly issued hereunder.
The provisions of this Section are exclusive and shall preclude (to the extent lawful) all other rights and remedies with respect to the replacement or payment of mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Securities.
Section 3.07
Payment of Interest; Interest Rights Preserved.
Except as otherwise provided as contemplated by Section 3.01 with respect to any series of Securities, interest on any Security which is payable, and is punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date shall be paid to the Person in whose name that Security (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on the Regular Record Date for such interest.
Unless otherwise provided with respect to the Securities of any series, at the option of the Company payment of interest may be made (i) with respect to Securities held in certificated form at the designated office of the Trustee, (ii) with respect to Securities held in book-entry form, by wire transfer or by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto as such address shall appear in the Security Register or (iii) by such method or methods as any Holder shall specify in writing from time to time to the Company or its agent.
 
-25-

 
Any interest on any Security of any series which is payable, but is not punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date (herein called Defaulted Interest) shall forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on the relevant Regular Record Date by virtue of having been such Holder, and such Defaulted Interest may be paid by the Company, at its election in each case, as provided in Clause (1) or (2) below:
(1) The Company may elect to make payment of any Defaulted Interest to the Persons in whose names the Securities of such series (or their respective Predecessor Securities) are registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest, which shall be fixed in the following manner.  The Company shall notify the Trustee in writing of the amount of Defaulted Interest proposed to be paid on each Security of such series and the date of the proposed payment, and at the same time the Company shall deposit with the Trustee an amount of money equal to the aggregate amount proposed to be paid in respect of such Defaulted Interest or shall make arrangements satisfactory to the Trustee for such deposit prior to the date of the proposed payment, such money when deposited to be held in trust for the benefit of the Persons entitled to such Defaulted Interest as in this Clause provided.  Thereupon the Trustee shall fix a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest which shall be not more than 15 days and not less than 10 days prior to the date of the proposed payment and not less than 10 days after the receipt by the Trustee of the notice of the proposed payment.  The Trustee shall promptly notify the Company of such Special Record Date and, in the name and at the expense of the Company, shall cause notice of the proposed payment of such Defaulted Interest and the Special Record Date therefor to be mailed, first-class postage prepaid, to each Holder of Securities of such series at his address as it appears in the Security Register, not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date.  Notice of the proposed payment of such Defaulted Interest and the Special Record Date therefor having been so mailed, such Defaulted Interest shall be paid to the Persons in whose names the Securities of such series (or their respective Predecessor Securities) are registered at the close of business on such Special Record Date and shall no longer be payable pursuant to the following Clause (2).
(2) The Company may make payment of any Defaulted Interest on the Securities of any series in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which such Securities may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, if, after notice given by the Company to the Trustee of the proposed payment pursuant to this Clause, such manner of payment shall be deemed practicable by the Trustee.
Subject to the foregoing provisions of this Section, each Security delivered under this Indenture upon registration of transfer of or in exchange for or in lieu of any other Security shall carry the rights to interest accrued and unpaid, and to accrue, which were carried by such other Security.
Section 3.08
Persons Deemed Owners.
Prior to due presentment of a Security for registration of transfer, the Company, the Trustee and any agent of the Company or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name such Security is registered as the owner of such Security for the purpose of receiving payment of principal of (and premium, if any) and (subject to Section 3.07) any interest on such Security and for all other purposes whatsoever, whether or not such Security be overdue, and neither the Company, the Trustee nor any agent of the Company or the Trustee shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
 
-26-

 
No holder of any beneficial interest in any Global Security held on its behalf by a Depository shall have any rights under this Indenture with respect to such Global Security, and such Depository may be treated by the Company, the Trustee, and any agent of the Company or the Trustee as the owner of such Global Security for all purposes whatsoever.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall prevent the Company, the Trustee, or any agent of the Company or the Trustee from giving effect to any written certification, proxy, or other authorization furnished by a Depository, or impair, as between a Depository and such holders of beneficial interests, the operation of customary practices governing the exercise of the rights of the Depository as Holder of any Security.
Section 3.09
Cancellation.
All Securities surrendered for payment, redemption, registration of transfer or exchange or for credit against any sinking fund payment shall, if surrendered to any Person other than the Trustee, be delivered to the Trustee and shall be promptly cancelled by it; and any Security surrendered to the Trustee for any such purpose shall be promptly cancelled by it.  The Company may at any time deliver to the Trustee for cancellation any Securities previously authenticated and delivered hereunder which the Company may have acquired in any manner whatsoever, and may deliver to the Trustee (or to any other Person for delivery to the Trustee) for cancellation any Securities previously authenticated hereunder which the Company has not issued and sold, and all Securities so delivered shall be promptly cancelled by the Trustee.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Indenture to the contrary, in the case of a series all the Securities of which are not to be originally issued at one time, a Security of such series shall not be deemed to have been Outstanding at any time hereunder if and to the extent that, subsequent to the authentication and delivery thereof, such Security is delivered to the Trustee for cancellation by the Company or any agent thereof upon the failure of the original purchaser thereof to make payment therefor against delivery thereof, and any Security so delivered to the Trustee shall be promptly cancelled by it.  No Securities shall be authenticated in lieu of or in exchange for any Securities cancelled as provided in this Section, except as expressly permitted by this Indenture.  All cancelled Securities held by the Trustee shall be disposed of in accordance with the Trustees customary procedures.
Section 3.10
Computation of Interest.
Except as otherwise specified as contemplated by Section 3.01 for Securities of any series, interest on the Securities of each series shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months.
 
-27-

 
Section 3.11
CUSIP Numbers.
The Company in issuing the Securities may use CUSIP numbers (if then generally in use), and, if so, the Trustee shall use CUSIP numbers in notices of redemption as a convenience to Holders; provided that any such notice may state that no representation is made as to the correctness of such numbers either as printed on the Securities or as contained in any notice of a redemption and that reliance may be placed only on the other identification numbers printed on the Securities, and any such redemption shall not be affected by any defect in or omission of such numbers.  The Company will promptly notify the Trustee in writing of any change in the CUSIP numbers.

Section 5.08
Unconditional Right of Holders to Receive Principal, Premium and Interest.
Notwithstanding any other provision in this Indenture, the Holder of any Security shall have the right, which is absolute and unconditional, to receive payment of the principal of (and premium, if any) and (subject to Section 3.07) any interest on such Security on the Stated Maturity or Maturities expressed in such Security (or, in the case of redemption, on the Redemption Date) and to institute suit for the enforcement of any such payment, and such rights shall not be impaired without the consent of such Holder.

Section 5.11
Delay or Omission Not Waiver.
No delay or omission of the Trustee or of any Holder of any Securities to exercise any right or remedy accruing upon any Event of Default shall impair any such right or remedy or constitute a waiver of any such Event of Default or an acquiescence therein.  Every right and remedy given by this Article or by law to the Trustee or to the Holders may be exercised from time to time, and as often as may be deemed expedient, by the Trustee or by the Holders, as the case may be.

(2) in respect of a covenant or provision hereof which under Article Nine cannot be modified or amended without the consent of the Holder of each Outstanding Security of such series affected.
Upon any such waiver, such default shall cease to exist, and any Event of Default arising therefrom shall be deemed to have been cured and shall cease to exist, for every purpose of this Indenture; but no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other, default or impair any right consequent thereon.
Section 5.14

ARTICLE VI
THE TRUSTEE
Section 6.01
Certain Duties and Responsibilities.
To the extent that the Trust Indenture Act applies to this Indenture or any Securities, the duties and responsibilities of the Trustee shall be as provided in the Trust Indenture Act.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no provision of this Indenture shall require the Trustee to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur any financial liability in the performance of any of its duties hereunder, or in the exercise of any of its rights or powers, if it shall have reasonable grounds for believing that repayment of such funds or adequate indemnity against such risk or liability is not reasonably assured to it.  Whether or not therein expressly so provided, every provision of this Indenture relating to the conduct or affecting the liability of or affording protection to the Trustee shall be subject to the provisions of this Section.

Certain Rights of Trustee.

The Trustee may appoint an Authenticating Agent or Agents with respect to one or more series of Securities which shall be authorized to act on behalf of the Trustee to authenticate Securities of such series issued upon original issue and upon exchange, registration of transfer or partial redemption thereof or pursuant to Section 3.06, and Securities so authenticated shall be entitled to the benefits of this Indenture and shall be valid and obligatory for all purposes as if authenticated by the Trustee hereunder.  Wherever reference is made in this Indenture to the authentication and delivery of Securities by the Trustee, the Trustees certificate of authentication, or the delivery of the Securities to the Trustee for authentication, such reference shall be deemed to include authentication and delivery on behalf of the Trustee by an Authenticating Agent, a certificate of authentication executed on behalf of the Trustee by an Authenticating Agent or delivery of Securities to the Authenticating Agent for authentication in place of the Trustee, as the case may be.  Each Authenticating Agent shall be acceptable to the Company and shall at all times be a corporation organized and doing business under the laws of the United States of America, any State thereof or the District of Columbia, authorized under such laws to act as Authenticating Agent, having a combined capital and surplus of not less than $50,000,000 and subject to supervision or examination by Federal, State or District of Columbia authority.  If such Authenticating Agent publishes reports of condition at least annually, pursuant to law or to the requirements of said supervising or examining authority, then for the purposes of this Section, the combined capital and surplus of such Authenticating Agent shall be deemed to be its combined capital and surplus as set forth in its most recent report of condition so published.  If at any time an Authenticating Agent shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of this Section, such Authenticating Agent shall resign immediately in the manner and with the effect specified in this Section.
Any corporation into which an Authenticating Agent may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any corporation resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which such Authenticating Agent shall be a party, or any corporation succeeding to all or substantially all the corporate agency or corporate trust business of an Authenticating Agent, shall continue to be an Authenticating Agent, provided such corporation shall be otherwise eligible under this Section, without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of the Trustee or the Authenticating Agent.
 
-43-

 
An Authenticating Agent may resign at any time by giving written notice thereof to the Trustee and to the Company.  The Trustee may at any time terminate the agency of an Authenticating Agent by giving written notice thereof to such Authenticating Agent and to the Company.  Upon receiving such a notice of resignation or upon such a termination, or in case at any time such Authenticating Agent shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of this Section, the Trustee may appoint a successor Authenticating Agent which shall be acceptable to the Company.  Any successor Authenticating Agent upon acceptance of its appointment hereunder shall become vested with all the rights, powers and duties of its predecessor hereunder, with like effect as if originally named as an Authenticating Agent.  No successor Authenticating Agent shall be appointed unless eligible under the provisions of this Section.
The Company agrees to pay to each Authenticating Agent from time to time reasonable compensation for its services under this Section.
If an appointment with respect to one or more series is made pursuant to this Section, the Securities of such series may have endorsed thereon, in lieu of the Trustees certificate of authentication, an alternate certificate of authentication in the following form:
This is one of the Securities of the series designated therein referred to in the within-mentioned Indenture.

Section 10.03
Money for Securities Payments to Be Held in Trust.
If the Company shall at any time act as its own Paying Agent with respect to any series of Securities, it will, on or before each due date of the principal of (and premium, if any) or interest on any of the Securities of that series, segregate and hold in trust for the benefit of the Persons entitled thereto a sum sufficient to pay the principal (and premium, if any) or interest so becoming due until such sums shall be paid to such Persons or otherwise disposed of as herein provided and will promptly notify the Trustee of its action or failure so to act.
Whenever the Company shall have one or more Paying Agents for any series of Securities, it will, prior to each due date of the principal of (and premium, if any) or interest on any Securities of that series, deposit with a Paying Agent a sum sufficient to pay such amount, such sum to be held as provided by the Trust Indenture Act to the extent that the Trust Indenture Act applies to this Indenture or any Securities, and (unless such Paying Agent is the Trustee) the Company will promptly notify the Trustee of its action or failure so to act.
The Company will cause each Paying Agent for any series of Securities other than the Trustee or the Company to execute and deliver to the Trustee an instrument in which such Paying Agent shall agree with the Trustee, subject to the provisions of this Section, that such Paying Agent will (i) comply with the provisions of the Trust Indenture Act applicable to it as a Paying Agent and (ii) during the continuance of any default by the Company (or any other obligor upon the Securities of that series) in the making of any payment in respect of the Securities of that series, and upon the written request of the Trustee, forthwith pay to the Trustee all sums held in trust by such Paying Agent for payment in respect of the Securities of that series.
The Company may at any time, for the purpose of obtaining the satisfaction and discharge of this Indenture or for any other purpose, pay, or by Company Order direct any Paying Agent to pay, to the Trustee all sums held in trust by the Company or such Paying Agent, such sums to be held by the Trustee upon the same trusts as those upon which such sums were held by the Company or such Paying Agent; and, upon such payment by any Paying Agent to the Trustee, such Paying Agent shall be released from all further liability with respect to such money.
Any money deposited with the Trustee or any Paying Agent, or then held by the Company, in trust for the payment of the principal of (and premium, if any) or interest on any Security of any series and remaining unclaimed for two years after such principal (and premium, if any) or interest has become due and payable shall be paid to the Company on Company Request, or (if then held by the Company) shall be discharged from such trust; and the Holder of such Security shall thereafter, as an unsecured general creditor, look only to the Company for payment thereof, and all liability of the Trustee or such Paying Agent with respect to such trust money, and all liability of the Company as trustee thereof, shall thereupon cease.
Section 10.04
Existence.
Subject to Article VIII, the Company will do or cause to be done all things necessary to preserve and keep in full force and effect its existence, rights (charter and statutory) and franchises; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to preserve any such right or franchise if the Company shall determine that the preservation thereof is no longer desirable in the conduct of the business of the Company and that the loss thereof is not disadvantageous in any material respect to the Holders.

Section 10.06
Defeasance and Covenant Defeasance.
(a) Company’s Option to Effect Defeasance and Covenant Defeasance.  The Company may elect, at any time, to have either Section 10.06(b) or Section 10.06(c) applied to the Outstanding Securities of any series upon compliance with the conditions set forth in this Section 10.06.

(f) Reinstatement.  If the Trustee or the Paying Agent is unable to apply any money in accordance with this Section 10.06 with respect to the Securities of any series by reason of any order or judgment of any court or governmental authority enjoining, restraining or otherwise prohibiting such application, then the Companys obligations under this Indenture and the Securities of such series shall be revived and reinstated as though no deposit had occurred pursuant to this Section 10.06 with respect to Securities of such series until such time as the Trustee or Paying Agent is permitted to apply all money held in trust pursuant to Section 10.06(e) with respect to Securities of such series in accordance with this Section 10.06;provided, however, that if the Company makes any payment of principal of or any premium or interest on any Security of such series following the reinstatement of its obligations, the Company shall be subrogated to the rights of the Holders of Securities of such series to receive such payment from the money so held in trust.

-11-

 
(b) The rate of interest on each 3-Year Floating Rate Note shall be a floating rate, reset quarterly, equal to LIBOR determined as described herein plus 0.65% per annum, accruing from the date of original issuance or from the most recent date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, payable quarterly in arrears on March 17, June 17, September 17 and December 17 of each year, commencing on December 17, 2018 and on the Maturity of such series.
(c) The rate of interest on each 5-Year Floating Rate Note shall be a floating rate, reset quarterly, equal to LIBOR determined as described herein plus 0.89% per annum, accruing from the date of original issuance or from the most recent date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, payable semi-annually in arrears on January 15, April 15, July 15 and October 15 of each year, commencing on October 15, 2018 and on the Maturity of such series.
(d) The amount of interest payable in respect of any Floating Rate Note, and punctually paid or duly provided for, on any interest payment date specified in Section 2.05(a), (b) and (c) (each, a "Floating Rate Interest Payment Date") will be paid to the Person in whose name such Floating Rate Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered on the Regular Record Date, provided that if any of the Floating Rate Notes are held by a securities depositary in book-entry form, the Regular Record Date for such Floating Rate Notes will be the close of business on the Business Day immediately preceding the date on which interest is scheduled to be paid; provided, further, that interest payable at the relevant Maturity will be payable to the Persons to whom the principal of such Fixed Rate Notes is payable.
(e) If a Floating Rate Interest Payment Date (other than any Maturity) is not a Business Day, then such Floating Rate Interest Payment Date shall be the next succeeding Business Day, unless the next succeeding Business Day is in the next succeeding calendar month, in which case such Floating Rate Interest Payment Date shall be the immediately preceding Business Day.  If the relevant Maturity of any Floating Rate Note falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment of principal and interest, if any, otherwise payable on such date will be postponed to the next succeeding Business Day, and no interest on such payment will accrue from and after such Maturity.
(f) The Floating Rate Notes will bear interest for each Interest Period at a rate determined by U.S. Bank National Association, acting as calculation agent, or any successor thereto, including a successor appointed pursuant to 2.05(i) (the "Calculation Agent").
(g) The interest rate for each Interest Period will be reset for the 18-Month Floating Rate Notes and the 3-Year Floating Rate Notes on March 17, June 17, September 17 and December 17 of each year and for the 5-Year Floating Rate Notes on January 15, April 15, July 15 and October 15 of each year (each such date, an "Interest Reset Date"), and will be set for the initial Interest Period on the date of original issuance on the Floating Rate Notes. If any Interest Reset Date would otherwise be a day that is not a Business Day, such Interest Reset Date shall be the next succeeding Business Day, unless the next succeeding Business Day is in the next succeeding calendar month, in which case such Interest Reset Date shall be the immediately preceding Business Day. The initial Interest Period for the Floating Rate Notes will be the period from and including September 17, 2018 to, but excluding, the first Interest Reset Date. Thereafter, an "Interest Period" shall mean the period from and including an Interest Reset Date to, but excluding, the next succeeding Interest Reset Date and, in the case of the last such period, from and including the Interest Reset Date immediately preceding Maturity,  but excluding, such Maturity.
 
-12-

 
(h) The interest determination date for the initial Interest Period will be the date that is the second London Business Day preceding the date of original issuance of the Floating Rate Notes and for any other Interest Period will be the second London Business Day preceding the relevant Interest Reset Date (the "Interest Determination Date"). A "London Business Day" is a day on which dealings in deposits in U.S. dollars are transacted in the London interbank market. Promptly upon determination, the Calculation Agent will inform the Company of the interest rate for the next Interest Period.
(i) Absent manifest error, the determination of the interest rate by the Calculation Agent shall be conclusive and binding on the Holders of the Floating Rate Notes, the Trustee and the Company. So long as LIBOR is required to be determined with respect to the Floating Rate Notes, there will at all times be a Calculation Agent. In the event that any then acting Calculation Agent shall be unable or unwilling to act, or that such Calculation Agent shall fail to duly establish LIBOR for any Interest Period, or that the Company proposes to remove such Calculation Agent, the Company shall appoint another Person which is a bank, trust company, investment banking firm or other financial institution to act as the Calculation Agent.
(j) On any Interest Determination Date, LIBOR will be equal to the offered rate for deposits in U.S. dollars having an index maturity of three months as such rate appears on "Reuters Page LIBOR01" at approximately 11:00 a.m., London time, on such Interest Determination Date. If on an Interest Determination Date, such rate does not appear on the "Reuters Page LIBOR01" at approximately 11:00 a.m., London time, or if "Reuters Page LIBOR01" is not available at such time, the Calculation Agent will obtain such rate from Bloomberg L.P.'s page "BBAM."
(k) Subject to Section 2.05(l), if no offered rate appears on "Reuters Page LIBOR01" or Bloomberg L.P.'s page "BBAM" on an Interest Determination Date at approximately 11:00 a.m., London time, then the Company will select four major banks in the London interbank market and shall request each of their principal London offices to provide to the Calculation Agent a quotation of the rate at which three-month deposits in U.S. dollars in amounts of at least $1 million are offered by it to prime banks in the London interbank market, on that date and at that time, that is representative of single transactions at that time. If at least two quotations are provided, LIBOR will be the arithmetic average of the quotations provided. Otherwise, the Company will select three major banks in New York City and shall request each of them to provide to the Calculation Agent a quotation of the rate offered by them at approximately 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on the Interest Determination Date for loans in U.S. dollars to leading European banks having an index maturity of three months for the applicable Interest Period in an amount of at least $1 million that is representative of single transactions at that time. If three quotations are provided, LIBOR will be the arithmetic average of the quotations provided. Otherwise, the rate of LIBOR for the next Interest Period will be set equal to the rate of LIBOR for the then current Interest Period.
 
-13-

 
(l) Notwithstanding Section 2.05(k), if the Company, in its sole discretion, determines that LIBOR has been permanently discontinued and the Company has notified the Calculation Agent of such determination (a "LIBOR Event"), the Calculation Agent will use, as directed by the Company, as a substitute for LIBOR (the "Alternative Rate") for each future floating rate Interest Determination Date, the alternative reference rate selected by the central bank, reserve bank, monetary authority or any similar institution (including any committee or working group thereof) that is consistent with market practice regarding a substitute for LIBOR. As part of such substitution, the Calculation Agent will, as directed by the Company, make such adjustments to the Alternative Rate or the spread thereon, as well as the business day convention, interest determination dates and related provisions and definitions ("Adjustments"), in each case that are consistent with market practice for the use of such Alternative Rate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company determines that there is no alternative reference rate selected by the central bank, reserve bank, monetary authority or any similar institution (including any committee or working group thereof) that is consistent with market practice regarding a substitute for LIBOR, the Company may, in its sole discretion, appoint an independent financial advisor ("IFA") to determine an appropriate Alternative Rate and any Adjustments, and the decision of the IFA will be conclusive and binding on the Company, the Calculation Agent, the Trustee and the Holders of Floating Rate Notes. If a LIBOR Event has occurred, but for any reason an Alternative Rate has not been determined or there is no such market practice for the use of such Alternative Rate (and, in each case, an IFA has not determined an appropriate Alternative Rate and Adjustments), the rate of LIBOR for the next Interest Period will be set equal to the rate of LIBOR for the then current Interest Period (for purposes hereof, this Section 2.05(l) will be referred to as the "LIBOR Alternative Rate Provision").
(m) The amount of interest for each day that the Floating Rate Notes of any series are Outstanding (the "Daily Interest Amount") will be calculated by dividing the floating interest rate in effect for such day for such series by 360 and multiplying the result by the principal amount of the Floating Rate Notes of such series (known as the "Actual/360" day count). The amount of interest to be paid on the Floating Rate Notes for any Interest Period will be calculated by adding the Daily Interest Amounts for each day in such Interest Period.
(n) Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary provided herein, the interest rate on the Floating Rate Notes will be limited to the maximum rate permitted by New York law, as the same may be modified by United States law of general application.
(o) All percentages resulting from any calculation of any interest rate for the Floating Rate Notes will be rounded, if necessary, to the nearest one hundred thousandth of a percentage point, with five one-millionths of a percentage point rounded upward (e.g., 9.876545% (or .09876545) would be rounded to 9.87655% (or .0987655)), and all U.S. dollar amounts will be rounded to the nearest cent, with one-half cent being rounded upward.
(p) Upon prior written request from any Holder of the Floating Rate Notes, the Calculation Agent will provide the interest rate in effect on the Floating Rate Notes for the current Interest Period and, if it has been determined, the interest rate to be in effect for the next Interest Period.
 
-14-

 
Section 2.06 Place of Payment.  The place where the Senior Notes may be presented or surrendered for payment, where the Senior Notes may be surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange and where notices and demand to or upon the Company in respect of the Senior Notes and the Indenture may be served, shall be the Corporate Trust Office of the Trustee or the Paying Agent's office maintained for that purpose in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York.
Section 2.07 Sinking Fund Obligations.  The Company has no obligation to redeem or purchase any Senior Notes pursuant to any sinking fund or analogous requirement.
Section 2.08 Denomination.  The Senior Notes shall be issued only in fully registered form, without coupons, in denominations of $2,000 and multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof.
Section 2.09 Currency.  Principal and interest on the Senior Notes shall be payable in such coin or currency of the United States of America that at the time of payment is legal tender for payment of public and private debts.
Section 2.10 Security Registrar and Paying Agent for the Senior Notes.  The Trustee shall serve initially as the Security Registrar and the Paying Agent for the Senior Notes.

(iii)
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Supplemental Indenture (other than the provisions set forth in Section 2.13), a Global Note may not be transferred as a whole except by the Depository to a nominee of the Depository or by a nominee of the Depository to the Depository or another nominee of the Depository or by the Depository or any such nominee to a successor Depository or a nominee of such successor Depository.

(d) In the event of the occurrence of one of the events specified in Section 2.13(a) hereof, the Company shall promptly make available to the Trustee a reasonable supply of Definitive Notes in definitive, fully registered form without interest coupons.  In the event that the Definitive Notes are not issued to each such beneficial owner promptly after the Security Registrar has received a request from the Holder of a Global Note to issue such Definitive Note, the Company expressly acknowledges, with respect to the right of any Holder to pursue a remedy pursuant to Article V of the Base Indenture (as modified herein), the right of any beneficial Holder of Senior Notes to pursue such remedy with respect to the portion of the Global Note that represents such beneficial Holder's Senior Notes as if such Definitive Notes had been issued.
(e) By its acceptance of any Senior Note bearing any legend in Section 2.12(d), each Holder of such Senior Note acknowledges the restrictions on transfer of such Senior Note set forth in this Indenture and in such legend in Section 2.13(d) and agrees that it shall transfer such Senior Note only as provided in this Indenture.

Section 2.14 Change of Control Offer.
(a) If a Change of Control Triggering Event occurs with respect to any series of the Senior Notes, unless the Company has exercised its right to redeem such Senior Notes, in full, the Company will make an offer to each Holder (the "Change of Control Offer") of Senior Notes of such series to repurchase any and all of such Holder's Senior Notes of such series, at a repurchase price in cash equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Senior Notes of such series repurchased plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon to, but excluding, the date of repurchase (the "Change of Control Payment"). Within thirty (30) days following any Change of Control Triggering Event, the Company will mail (or otherwise deliver in accordance with the applicable procedures of the Depository) a notice to Holders of Senior Notes describing the transaction or transactions that constitute the Change of Control Triggering Event and offering to repurchase the Senior Notes on the date specified in the notice, which date will be no less than fifteen (15) days and no more than sixty (60) days from the date such notice is mailed (or otherwise delivered in accordance with the applicable procedures of the Depository) (the "Change of Control Payment Date"), pursuant to the procedures required by the Senior Notes, and described in such notice.
(b) The Company will comply with the requirements of Rule 14e-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), and any other securities laws and regulations thereunder to the extent those laws and regulations are applicable in connection with the repurchase of the Senior Notes as a result of a Change of Control Triggering Event.  To the extent that the provisions of any securities laws or regulations conflict with this Section, the Company will comply with the applicable securities laws and regulations and will not be deemed to have breached its obligations under this Section by virtue of such conflicts.
 
 
-24-

 
(c) The Company will not be required to offer to repurchase the Senior Notes upon the occurrence of a Change of Control Triggering Event if a third party makes such an offer in the manner, at the times and otherwise in compliance with the requirements for an offer made by the Company and the third party repurchases on the applicable date all Senior Notes properly tendered and not withdrawn under its offer; provided that for all purposes of the Senior Notes and the Indenture, a failure by such third party to comply with the requirements of such offer and to complete such offer shall be treated as a failure by the Company to comply with its obligations to offer to purchase the Senior Notes unless the Company promptly makes an offer to repurchase the Senior Notes at 101% of the principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon, to the date of repurchase, which shall be no later than thirty (30) days after the third party's scheduled Change of Control Payment Date.
(d) On the Change of Control Payment Date, the Company will, to the extent lawful:
(i)
accept or cause a third party to accept for payment all Senior Notes properly tendered pursuant to the Change of Control Offer;
(ii)
deposit or cause a third party to deposit with the Paying Agent an amount equal to the Change of Control Payment in respect of all Senior Notes properly tendered; and
(iii)
deliver or cause to be delivered to the Trustee the Senior Notes properly accepted, together with an Officers' Certificate stating the principal amount of the Senior Notes being purchased.
(e) For the purposes of this Section, the terms below are defined as follows:
"Below Investment Grade Rating Event" with respect to any series of Senior Notes means such Senior Notes are rated below all Investment Grade Ratings by at least two of the three Rating Agencies on any date from the earlier of (1) the occurrence of a Change of Control and (2) public notice of the Company's intention to effect a Change of Control, in each case until the end of the 60-day period following public notice of the occurrence of the Change of Control; provided, however, that if (a) during such 60-day period, one or more Rating Agencies has publicly announced that it is considering the possible downgrade of such series of Senior Notes, and (b) a downgrade by each of the Rating Agencies that has made such an announcement would result in a Below Investment Grade Rating Event, then such 60-day period shall be extended for such time as the rating of such series of Senior Notes by any such Rating Agency remains under publicly announced consideration for possible downgrade to a rating below an Investment Grade Rating and a downgrade by such Rating Agency to a rating below an Investment Grade Rating could cause a Below Investment Grade Rating Event.

(d) The Trustee shall terminate the Account Control Agreement relating to each Segregated Collateral Account upon or promptly following the Trigger Date.

(c) Each Guarantor further agrees that (to the fullest extent permitted by law) its obligations hereunder shall be unconditional, irrespective of the validity, regularity or enforceability of the Indenture, the Senior Notes or the obligations of the Company or any other Guarantor hereunder or thereunder, the absence of any action to enforce the same, any waiver or consent by any Holder with respect to any provisions hereof or thereof, any release of any other Guarantor, the recovery of any judgment against the Company, any action to enforce the same, or any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge or defense of a Guarantor.

(b) The obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall continue to be effective or shall be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time any payment which would otherwise have reduced or terminated the obligations of any Guarantor hereunder and under its Guarantee (whether such payment shall have been made by or on behalf of the Company or by or on behalf of a Guarantor) is rescinded or reclaimed from any of the Holders upon the insolvency, bankruptcy, liquidation or reorganization of the Company or any Guarantor or otherwise, all as though such payment had not been made.

with respect to any series of Senior Notes, as applicable, if the Company exercises its legal defeasance option or our covenant defeasance option as described in Section 10.06 of the Base Indenture with respect to such series of Senior Notes or if our obligations under the Indenture are discharged in accordance with the terms of the Indenture in respect of such series of Senior Notes;
(ii)
with respect to all series of Senior Notes, on the date upon which such Person ceases to be a Domestic Subsidiary of the Company; or

(c) If a Guarantor is released from its obligations hereunder pursuant to this Section 4.03, it shall cease to be a "Guarantor" as defined in and for purposes hereof.
Section 4.04 Notation Not Required.
Neither the Company nor any Guarantor shall be required to make a notation on the Senior Notes to reflect any Guarantee or any release thereof.
Section 4.05 Waiver of Subrogation.
