Concerning the Trustee
The trustee under the indenture is The Bank of New York Mellon. Pursuant to the indenture, The Bank of New York Mellon will be designated by us
as the initial paying and transfer agent and registrar for the debt securities. The corporate trust office of the trustee is currently located at 101 Barclay Street, New York, New York 10286, United States, Attention: Global Corporate
The indenture provides that the trustee, except during the continuance of an Event of Default, undertakes to
perform such duties and only such duties as are specifically set forth therein. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the trustee will exercise such of the rights and powers vested in it by the indenture, and use the same degree of
care and skill in its exercise, as a prudent person would exercise or use under the circumstances in the conduct of such persons own affairs.
The trustee in its various capacities assumes no responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of the information concerning the Company or
its affiliates or any other party referenced in this prospectus or any prospectus supplement or for any failure by the Company or any other party to disclose events that may have occurred and may affect the significance or accuracy of such
Whenever the trustee shall have discretion or permissive power in accordance with the indenture or the law, the trustee may
decline to exercise the same in the absence of approval by the holders and shall have no obligation to exercise the same unless it has received pre-funding, been indemnified and/or provided with security to
its satisfaction against all actions, proceedings, claims, actions or demands to which it may render itself liable and all costs, damages, charges, expenses and liabilities which it may incur by so doing. The trustee in its various capacities shall
in no event be responsible for consequential loss or damage of any kind whatsoever (including, but not limited to, loss of profit).
Subject to the terms of the indenture and the Trust Indenture Act, the trustee is permitted to engage in other transactions with the Company
and its affiliates and can profit therefrom without being obliged to account for such profit; and the trustee shall not be under any obligation to monitor any conflict of interest, if any, which may arise between itself and such other parties. The
trustee may have interest in, or may be providing, or may in the future provide financial services to other parties.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, our obligations to any holder of debt securities under the indenture or the applicable series of debt
securities, as the case may be, shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency (the Judgment Currency) other than U.S. dollars (the Agreement Currency), be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day following
receipt by such holder or the trustee, as the case may be, of any amount in the Judgment Currency, such holder or the trustee, as the case may be, may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase the Agreement Currency with the Judgment
Currency. If the amount of the Agreement Currency so purchased is less than the amount originally to be paid to such holder or the trustee, as the case may be, in the Agreement Currency, we agree, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding such
judgment, to pay the difference and if the amount of the Agreement Currency so purchased exceeds the amount originally to be paid to such holder, such holder or the trustee, as the case may be, agrees to pay to or for our account such excess,
provided that such holder shall not have any obligation to pay any such excess as long as a default by us in our obligations under the indenture or the debt securities of such series has occurred and is continuing, in which case such excess may be
applied by such holder to such obligations.
Notices to holders of debt securities will be mailed to them (or the first named of joint holders) by first class mail (or, if first class mail
is unavailable, by airmail) at their respective addresses in the register.
