Notes not to exceed the aggregate principal amount of €600,000,000 upon the execution of this Indenture may be executed by the Issuer and delivered to the Trustee for authentication, and the Trustee shall thereupon authenticate and deliver said Notes to or upon the written order of the Issuer, signed by its Chairman of the Board of Directors, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, Chief Executive Officer, President, Chief Financial Officer or any Vice President, without any further action by the Issuer hereunder (the “Original Notes”). In addition, subject to the provisions of Section 15.05 but without the consent of the Noteholders, an unlimited aggregate principal amount of additional Notes (the “Additional Notes”) may be executed after the date of this Indenture by the Issuer and delivered to the Trustee for authentication, and the Trustee shall, upon receipt of an Officer’s Certificate specifying the amount of Notes to be authenticated and the date on which such Notes are to be authenticated and certifying that all conditions precedent to the issuance of the Additional Notes contained herein have been complied with and that no Default or Event of Default would occur as a result of the issuance of such Additional Notes, authenticate and deliver said Additional Notes to or upon the written order of the Issuer, signed as set forth in the preceding sentence; provided that Additional Notes may be issued under this Indenture only if such Additional Notes and the

The Issuer and the Guarantor may also from time to time purchase the Notes in tender offers, open market purchases or negotiated transactions without prior notice to the Noteholders.

Section 2.02.Form and Dating; Terms.

(a)General. The Notes and the Trustee’s or Authenticating Agent’s certificate of authentication shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit A hereto. The Notes may have notations, legends or endorsements required by law, stock exchange rules or usage. Each Note shall be dated the date of its authentication. The Notes shall be in minimum denominations of €100,000 and integral multiples of €1,000 in excess thereof.

(b)The Initial Notes offered and sold to the Initial Purchasers will be issued on the Issue Date in the form of a permanent global Note, without interest coupons, substantially in the form of Exhibit A hereto, which is hereby incorporated by reference and made a part of this Indenture, including appropriate legends as set forth in Section 2.07 hereof (the “Global Note”), safekept by the CSK, as common safekeeper for the Clearing Systems, duly executed by the Issuer, authenticated by the Registrar and effectuated by the CSK as hereinafter provided. The aggregate principal amount of the Global Note may from time to time be increased or decreased by adjustments made on the Note Register.

Except as described in the succeeding two sentences, the principal of and premium, if any, and interest on the Notes shall be payable at the office or agency of the Issuer maintained for such purpose in New York City, U.S.A, or at such other office or agency of the Issuer as may be maintained for such purpose pursuant to Section 7.08 hereof; provided, however, that, at the option of the Issuer, each installment of interest may be paid by check mailed to addresses of the Persons entitled thereto as such addresses shall appear on the Note Register.

Whilst any Notes are represented by a Global Note, all payments due in respect of the Notes shall be made to, or to the order of, the holder of the Global Note, subject to and in accordance with the provisions of the Global Note. On the occasion of each payment, the Paying Agent shall instruct Euroclear and Clearstream to make the appropriate entries in their records to reflect such payment. Payments in respect of Notes represented by Definitive Notes (including principal, premium, if any, interest or Additional Amounts, if any,) held by a Holder of at least €1,000,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes represented by Definitive Notes will be made by wire transfer to a Euro account maintained by the payee with a branch of a designated bank in the European Union if such Holder elects payment by wire transfer by giving written notice to the Trustee or the Paying Agent to such effect designating such account no later than 15 days immediately preceding the relevant due date for payment (or such other date as the Trustee may accept in its discretion).

In the case of a Global Note intended to be held under the New Safekeeping Structure, save for the purposes of determining Notes that are outstanding for consent or voting purposes under the Base Indenture, the Trustee shall rely on the records of the ICSDs in relation to any determination of the principal amount outstanding of such Global Note. For this purpose,


“records” means the records that each of the ICSDs holds for its customers which reflect the amount of such customer’s interest in the Notes.

Any Subsequent Notes shall be in the form of Exhibit A hereto.

The Notes may have notations, legends or endorsements required by law, stock exchange rule or usage, in addition to those set forth on Exhibit A hereto and in Section 2.07 hereof. The Issuer and Trustee shall approve the forms of the Notes and any notation, endorsement or legend on them. Each Note shall be dated the date of its authentication or, if later (in the case of a Global Note), effectuation. The terms of the Notes set forth in Exhibit A hereto are part of the terms of this Indenture and, to the extent applicable, the Issuer and the Trustee, by their execution and delivery of this Indenture, expressly agree to be bound by such terms.

All payments of interest and principal on the Notes, including payments made upon any redemption of the Notes, will be made in Euros. If the Euro is unavailable to the Issuer due to the imposition of exchange controls or other circumstances beyond the Issuer’s control or if the Euro is no longer being used by the then member states of the European Economic and Monetary Union that have adopted the Euro as their currency or for the settlement of transactions by public institutions of or within the international banking community, then all payments in respect of the Notes shall be made in U.S. dollars until the Euro is again available to the Issuer or so used. The amount payable on any date in Euros shall be converted into U.S. dollars on the basis of the most recently available Market Exchange Rate for Euros. The Market Exchange Rate most recently available on, or prior to, the second Business Day before the relevant determination date will be the basis for determining the equivalent of Euro in the currency of the United States of America for any purposes under the Indenture. Any payment in respect of such Notes so made in U.S. dollars shall not constitute an Event of Default under the Notes or this Indenture. Neither the Trustee nor the Paying Agent shall have any responsibility for obtaining exchange rates, effecting conversions or otherwise handling redenominations.

It is intended that the Notes, whilst represented by one or more Global Notes, will be recognized as eligible collateral for Eurosystem monetary policy and intra-day credit operations by the Eurosystem either upon issue, or at any or all times during their life.

In relation to each issue of Eurosystem-eligible Global Notes, the Issuer hereby authorises and instructs the Paying Agent to elect Euroclear as common safekeeper. From time to time, the Issuer and the Paying Agent may agree to vary this election. The Issuer acknowledges that any such election is subject to the right of Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg to jointly determine that the other shall act as common safekeeper in relation to any such issue and agrees that no liability shall attach to the Paying Agent in respect of any such election made by it.

(c)Temporary Global Notes. Notes offered and sold in reliance on Regulation S shall be issued initially in the form of the Regulation S Temporary Global Note, which shall be deposited on behalf of the purchasers of the Notes represented thereby with the Trustee, as custodian for the CSK, and registered in the name of the CSK or the nominee of the CSK for the accounts of designated agents holding on behalf of Euroclear or Clearstream, duly executed by the Issuer and authenticated by the Trustee or an Authenticating Agent as hereinafter provided. The Restricted Period shall be terminated upon the receipt by the Trustee of:


(i)a written certificate from the CSK, together with copies of certificates from Euroclear and Clearstream certifying that they have received certification of non-United States beneficial ownership of 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the Regulation S Temporary Global Note; and

(ii)an Officer’s Certificate from the Issuer.

(iii)Following the termination of the Restricted Period, beneficial interests in the Regulation S Temporary Global Note shall be exchanged for beneficial interests in the Regulation S Permanent Global Note of the same series pursuant to the Applicable Procedures. Simultaneously with the authentication of the corresponding Regulation S Permanent Global Note, the Registrar shall cancel the corresponding Regulation S Temporary Global Note. The aggregate principal amount of the Regulation S Temporary Global Note and the Regulation S Permanent Global Note may from time to time be increased or decreased by adjustments made on the records of the Trustee and the CSK or its nominee, as the case may be, in connection with transfers of interest as hereinafter provided.

(d)Terms. The terms and provisions contained in the Notes shall constitute, and are hereby expressly made, a part of this Indenture and the Issuer and the Trustee, by their execution and delivery of this Indenture, expressly agree to such terms and provisions and to be bound thereby. However, to the extent any provision of any Note conflicts with the express provisions of this Indenture, the provisions of this Indenture shall govern and be controlling.

The Notes shall be subject to repurchase by the Issuer in the event of a Change of Control Offer as provided in Section 4.08 hereof. The Notes shall be redeemable as provided in ARTICLE 3.

(e)Euroclear and Clearstream Procedures Applicable. The provisions of the “Operating Procedures of the Euroclear System” and “Terms and Conditions Governing Use of Euroclear” and the “General Terms and Conditions of Clearstream Banking” and “Customer Handbook” of Clearstream shall be applicable to transfers of beneficial interests in the Regulation S Temporary Global Note and the Regulation S Permanent Global Notes that are held by Participants through Euroclear or Clearstream.

Section 2.03.Execution, Authentication and Effectuation. One Officer shall execute the Notes, on behalf of the Issuer, by manual or facsimile signature. If an Officer whose signature is on a Note no longer holds that office at the time the Trustee or an Authenticating Agent authenticates the Definitive Note or the Registrar or an Authenticating Agent authenticates the Global Note and, in the case of a Global Note, the CSK effectuates the Global Notes, the Note shall be valid nevertheless.

A Note shall not be valid until an authorized signatory of the Trustee (with respect to Definitive Notes and the Registrar with respect to a Global Note) or an Authenticating Agent manually authenticates the Note and, in the case of the Global Note, the Global Note is effectuated by the CSK by the manual or facsimile signature of one of its authorized signatories. The signature of the Trustee or the Registrar or an Authenticating Agent on a Note and, in the case of a Global Note, evidence via facsimile transmission, electronic means or such other


evidence in writing as may be acceptable to the Registrar of the execution by the CSK of the certificate of effectuation on such Note shall be conclusive evidence that such Note has been duly and validly authenticated, effectuated and issued under this Indenture. A Note shall be dated the date of its authentication or, if later (in the case of a Global Note), effectuation.

The Issuer authorizes and instructs the Registrar to (i) authenticate the Global Notes, (ii) transmit such Global Notes electronically to the CSK and to give effectuation instructions in respect of the Global Notes following its authentication thereof and (iii) instruct the Clearing Systems to make appropriate entries in their records to reflect the initial outstanding aggregate principal amount of the Notes.

The Registrar shall authenticate and make available for delivery and the CSK shall effectuate: (1) at any time after the execution and delivery of this Indenture, a Global Note representing the Initial Notes for issue on the Issue Date in an aggregate principal amount of €600,000,000; (2) if and when issued, a Global Note or Global Notes representing each tranche of the Subsequent Notes for issue on the issue date thereof, in each case upon a written order of the Issuer signed by two Officers or by an Officer and an Assistant Treasurer or an Assistant Secretary of the Issuer (the “Issuer Order”); and (3) if and when issued, a Definitive Note or Definitive Notes. Such Issuer Order shall specify the amount of the Notes to be authenticated and (in the case of a Global Note) effectuated, the date on which the issue of Notes is to be authenticated and (in the case of a Global Note) effectuated and whether the Notes are to be Initial Notes or Subsequent Notes. The aggregate principal amount of Notes which may be authenticated and delivered and (in the case of a Global Note) effectuated under this Indenture is initially limited to €600,000,000 outstanding (plus any Subsequent Notes), except for Notes authenticated and delivered and (in the case of a Global Note) effectuated upon registration or transfer of, or in exchange for, or in lieu of, other Notes of the same class. All Notes issued on the Issue Date and all Subsequent Notes shall be identical in all respects other than issue date, issue price and the date from which interest accrues and any changes relating thereto; provided that if the Subsequent Notes are not fungible with the Initial Notes for United States federal income tax purposes, the Subsequent Notes will have a separate Common Code and ISIN number and/or any other identifying number. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Indenture, the Initial Notes and any Subsequent Notes of the same class will be treated as a single class of securities under this Indenture. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing sentence, unless otherwise provided in this Indenture, all Notes issued under this Indenture shall vote and consent together on all matters as one class and no Notes will have the right to vote or consent as a separate class on any matter.

The Trustee may appoint an agent reasonably acceptable to the Issuer to authenticate the Definitive Notes and the Registrar (as defined below) may appoint an agent reasonably acceptable to the Issuer to authenticate the Global Notes, as applicable (the “Authenticating Agent”). Unless limited by the terms of such appointment, any such Authenticating Agent may authenticate Notes whenever the Trustee or Registrar may do so. Each reference in this Indenture to authentication by the Trustee or Registrar includes authentication by the Authenticating Agent. An Authenticating Agent has the same rights as any Registrar, Transfer Agent or Paying Agent to deal with the Issuer or an Affiliate of the Issuer. The Issuer hereby appoints HSBC Bank USA, National Association as Paying Agent, Registrar and Transfer Agent. HSBC Bank USA, National Association accepts its respective appointments. The Paying Agent


is authorized by the PRA and regulated by the FCA and PRA. Nothing in this Agreement shall require the Paying Agent to carry on an activity of the kind specified by any provision of Part II (other than article 5 (accepting deposits)) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) Order 2001, or to lend money to the Issuer.

Where the Registrar delivers any authenticated Global Note to a CSK for effectuation using electronic means, it is authorized and instructed to destroy the Global Note retained by it following its receipt of confirmation from the CSK that the relevant Global Note has been effectuated.

Section 2.04.Registrar and Paying Agent.

The entries in the Note Register shall be conclusive (absent manifest error), and the Issuer, the Agents, the Trustee, and the Noteholders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Note Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Noteholder and the owner of its portion of the Notes, as set forth in the Note Register for all purposes under this agreement.

The Issuer shall notify the Trustee in writing of the name and address of any Agent not a party to this Indenture. The Issuer, the Guarantor or any of the Guarantor’s Subsidiaries may act as Registrar or Paying Agent.

The ICSDs will initially appoint the CSK to act as common safekeeper for the Clearing Systems with respect to the Global Note. The Issuer has entered or will enter into an Issuer – ICSD Agreement in the form mandated by the Clearing Systems in connection with the servicing of the Notes by the Clearing Systems.

The Issuer has initially appointed HSBC Bank USA, National Association as the Paying Agent, Transfer Agent and Registrar for the Notes, and HSBC Bank USA, National Association hereby accepts such appointment.

The Paying Agent will not hold any amounts in trust. Money held by the Paying Agent

The Paying Agents will not be liable for interest on any money received by it from the Issuer or any Guarantor. While any such default continues, the Trustee may require a Paying Agent to pay all money held by it to the Trustee. The Issuer at any time may require a Paying Agent to pay all money held by it to the Trustee. Upon payment over to the Trustee, the Paying Agent (if other than the Issuer, the Guarantor or a Subsidiary) shall have no further liability for the money. If the Issuer, the Guarantor or a Subsidiary acts as Paying Agent, it shall segregate and pay into a separate trust fund for the benefit of the Noteholders all money held by it as Paying Agent. Upon any bankruptcy or reorganization proceedings relating to the Issuer or the Guarantor, the Paying Agent shall serve as agent of the Trustee for the Notes.

The Issuer shall ensure that no later than 10.00 a.m. (New York time) on the second Business Day immediately preceding the date on which any payment is to be made to the Paying Agent, the Paying Agent shall receive a copy of an irrevocable payment instruction to or a payment confirmation from the paying bank of the Issuer.

Section 2.06.Noteholder Lists.

The Registrar shall preserve in as current a form as is reasonably practicable the most recent list available to it of the names and addresses of all Noteholders. If HSBC Bank USA, National Association is not the Registrar, the Issuer shall furnish to the Trustee at least two (2) Business Days before each Interest Payment Date and at such other times as the Trustee may request in writing, a list in such form and as of such date as the Trustee may reasonably require of the names and addresses of the Noteholders of Notes and the Issuer.

Global Notes also may be exchanged or replaced, in whole or in part, as provided in Sections 2.08 and 2.10 hereof. Every Note authenticated and delivered in exchange for, or in lieu of, a Global Note or any portion thereof, pursuant to this Section 2.07 or Section 2.08 or 2.10 hereof, shall be authenticated and delivered in the form of, and shall be, a Global Note, except for Definitive Notes issued subsequent to any of the preceding events in (i) or (ii) above and pursuant to Section 2.07(c) hereof. A Global Note may not be exchanged for another Note other than as provided in this Section 2.07(a); provided, however, beneficial interests in a Global Note may be transferred and exchanged as provided in Section 2.07(b) or (c) hereof. All Global Notes shall be registered in the name of a nominee of the CSK, for, and in respect of interests held through the Clearing Systems and all transfers of beneficial ownership interests therein will be made in accordance with the rules of the Clearing Systems.

(i)Transfer of Beneficial Interests in the Same Global Note. Beneficial interests in any Restricted Global Note may be transferred to Persons who take delivery thereof in the form of a beneficial interest in the same Restricted Global Note in accordance with the transfer restrictions set forth in the Private Placement Legend; provided, however, that prior to the expiration of the Restricted Period, transfers of beneficial interests in the Regulation S Temporary Global Note may not be made to a U.S. Person or for the account or benefit of a U.S. Person (other than an Initial Noteholder). Beneficial interests in any Unrestricted Global Note may be transferred to Persons who take delivery thereof in the form of a beneficial interest in an Unrestricted Global Note. No written orders or instructions shall be required to be delivered to the Registrar to effect the transfers described in this Section 2.07(b)(i).

The Issuer shall notify the Trustee in writing of the amount of Defaulted Interest proposed to be paid on each Note and the date of the proposed payment, and at the same time the Issuer 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 Issuer shall fix a special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest which date 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 Issuer shall promptly notify the Paying Agent and Trustee of such special Record Date and, in the name and at the expense of the Issuer, the Paying Agent 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 the Noteholders of such Notes at their addresses as they appear 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 mailed as aforesaid, such Defaulted Interest shall be paid to the Persons in whose names such Notes (or their respective predecessor Notes) are registered at the close of business on such special Record Date and shall no longer be payable pursuant to the following clause (b).

(b)The Issuer may make payment of any Defaulted Interest on Notes in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which such Notes may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, if, after notice given by the Issuer to the Trustee of the proposed payment pursuant to this clause, such manner of payment shall be deemed practicable by the Trustee.

Section 2.13.ISIN Numbers.

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

Section 2.14.Additional Responsibilities of the Paying Agent Regarding the Global Notes.

(b)If any event occurs that requires a mark-up or mark-down of the records that Euroclear or Clearstream holds for its customers to reflect such customers’ interest in any Global Note, the Paying Agent will promptly provide details of the amount of such mark-up or mark-down, together with a description of the event that requires it, to the Clearing Systems (through the CSP) to ensure that the records of the Clearing Systems reflecting the IOA of the Notes remain at all times accurate.

(c)The Paying Agent will at least once every month perform a reconciliation process with the Clearing Systems (through the CSP) with respect to the IOA for the Notes and will promptly inform the Clearing Systems (through the CSP) of any discrepancies.

(b)The Issuer and the Agents acknowledge and agree that in the event of a Default or Event of Default, the Trustee may, by notice in writing to each of the Issuer and the Agents, require that the Agents act as agents of, and take instructions exclusively from, the Trustee. The Agents need have no concern for the interests of the Holders and except in the case of the Paying Agents as provided above and in Section 2.05 shall act solely as agents of the Issuer.

(c)The Agents hold all funds as banker and not as trustee, subject to the terms of this Indenture.

(d)Any obligation the Agents may have to publish a notice to Noteholders on behalf of the Issuer will have been met upon delivery of the notice to Euroclear and/or Clearstream, as applicable.

(e)Any Agent may resign and be discharged from its duties under this Indenture at any time by giving 30 days’ prior written notice of such resignation to the Trustee and Issuer. The Trustee or Issuer may remove any Agent at any time by giving 30 days’ prior written notice to any Agent. Upon such notice, a successor Agent shall be appointed by the Issuer, who shall provide written notice of such to the Trustee. Such successor Agent shall become the Agent hereunder upon the resignation or removal date specified in such notice. If the Issuer is unable to replace the resigning Agent within 30 days after such notice, the Agent may, in its sole discretion, appoint a successor Agent reasonably satisfactory to the Issuer and the Trustee, deliver any funds then held hereunder in its possession to the Trustee (or its designee for


such purpose) or may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Agent or for other appropriate relief. The costs and expenses (including its counsels’ fees and expenses) properly incurred by the Agent in connection with such proceeding shall be paid by the Issuer. Upon receipt of the identity of the successor Agent, the Agent shall deliver any funds then held hereunder to the successor Agent, less the Agent’s fees, costs and expenses or other obligations owed to the Agent. Upon its resignation and delivery of any funds, the Agent shall be discharged of and from any and all further obligations arising in connection with this Indenture but shall continue to enjoy the benefit of Section 7.07 hereof.

(f)In the event that instructions given to any Agent are not reasonably clear, then such Agent shall be entitled to seek clarification from the Issuer or other party entitled to give the Agents instructions under this Indenture by written request promptly upon receipt by such Agent of such instructions. If an Agent has sought clarification in accordance with this Section 2.15(f) then such Agent shall be entitled to take no action until such clarification is provided and shall not incur any liability for not taking any action pending receipt of such clarification.

(g)In acting under this Indenture, no Agent shall be under any duty or other obligation towards, or have any relationship of agency or trust for or with, any person other than the Issuer or the Trustee (as applicable).

(h)Each party to this Indenture shall, within ten Business Days of a written request by another party, supply to that other party such forms, documentation and other information relating to it, its operations, or the Notes as that other party reasonably requests for the purposes of that other party’s compliance with Applicable Law; provided, however, that no party to this Indenture shall be required to provide any forms, documentation or other information pursuant to this Section 2.15(h) to the extent that: (i) any such form, documentation or other information (or the information required to be provided on such form or documentation) is not reasonably available to such party and cannot be obtained by such party using reasonable efforts; or (ii) doing so would or might in the reasonable opinion of such party constitute a breach of any: (a) Applicable Law; (b) fiduciary duty; or (c) duty of confidentiality.

(i)No Agent shall be required to make any payment under this Indenture unless and until it has received the full amount to be paid in accordance with the terms of this Indenture. To the extent that an Agent has made a payment for which it did not receive the full amount, the Issuer will reimburse the Agent the full amount of any shortfall, and the Issuer will, in addition to paying amounts due, pay to the Agent on demand interest (at a rate which represents the Agent’s cost of funding) on the amount (or the unreimbursed portion thereof) until the receipt in full by the Agent of the amount.

(j)The Issuer shall notify each Agent in the event that it determines that any payment to be made by an Agent under the Notes is a payment which could be subject to FATCA Withholding if such payment were made to a recipient that is generally unable to receive payments free from FATCA Withholding, and the extent to which the relevant payment is so treated, provided, however, that the Issuer’s obligation under this Section 2.15(j) shall apply only to the extent that such payments are so treated by virtue of characteristics of the Issuer, the Notes, or both. For avoidance of doubt no Agent shall incur any loss or liability pursuant to such payments in accordance with Section 2.15(j) and (k).


(k)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Indenture, each Agent shall be entitled to make a deduction or withholding from any payment which it makes under the Notes for or on account of any Tax, if and only to the extent so required by Applicable Law, in which event the Agent shall make such payment after such deduction or withholding has been made and shall account to the relevant Authority within the time allowed for the amount so deducted or withheld or, at its option, shall reasonably promptly after making such payment return to the Issuer the amount so deducted or withheld, in which case, the Issuer shall so account to the relevant Authority for such amount.

(l)In the event that the Issuer determines in its sole discretion that withholding for or on account of any Tax will be required by Applicable Law in connection with any payment due to any of the Agents on any Notes, then the Issuer will be entitled to redirect or reorganize any such payment in any way that it sees fit in order that the payment may be made without such deductions or withholding provided that, any such redirected or reorganized payment is made through a recognized institution of international standing and otherwise made in accordance with this Indenture. The Issuer will promptly notify the Agents and the Trustee of any such redirection or reorganization.

(m)If the Issuer or the Paying Agent is, in respect of any payment in respect of the Notes, required to withhold or deduct any amount for or on account of any taxes, duties, assessments or similar governmental charges, the Issuer shall give written notice of that fact to the Trustee and the Paying Agent as soon as the Issuer becomes aware of the requirement to make the withholding or deduction and shall give to the Trustee and/or Paying Agent such information as the Trustee or Paying Agent shall require to enable it to assess and comply with the requirement for or on account of any taxes, duties, assessments or similar government charges (including FATCA Withholding).

(n)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Indenture, the Issuer shall indemnify any Agent against any liability or loss incurred in connection with the Issuer’s obligation to withhold or deduct an amount on account of Tax; provided that such liability or loss is not incurred as a result of the gross negligence, willful misconduct or fraud of such Paying Agent.

(o)The Issuer agrees to pay any and all stamp, registration and other documentary taxes, duties, assessments or government charges (including any interest and penalties thereon or in connection therewith) payable in connection with the execution, delivery, performance and enforcement of this Indenture by the Agents.

(p)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Indenture, the Agent shall be entitled to take any action or to refuse to take any action which the Agent regards as necessary for the Agent to comply with any Applicable Law, or the rules, operating procedures or market practice of any relevant stock exchange or other market or clearing system.

(q)Nothing in this Indenture shall require the Agent to assume an obligation of the Issuer arising under any provision of the listing, prospectus, disclosure or transparency rules.

(r)If:


(i)the introduction of or any change in (or in the interpretation, administration or application of) any law or regulation made after the date of this Indenture; or

(ii)any change in the status of the Issuer of the composition of the shareholders of the Issuer after the date of this Indenture,

obliges the Paying Agent or the Registrar to comply with “know your customer” or similar identification procedures in circumstances where the necessary information is not already available to it, the Issuer shall promptly upon the request of the Paying Agent or the Registrar supply or procure the supply of such documentation and other evidence as is reasonably requested by the Paying Agent or the Registrar in order for the Paying Agent or Registrar to carry out and be satisfied that it has complied with all necessary “know your customer” or similar checks under all applicable laws and regulations.

(s)For the purposes of Section 2.15, the following definitions apply:

Applicable Law” means any law or regulation including, but not limited to: (i) any statute or regulation; (ii) any rule or practice of any Authority by which any Party is bound or with which it is accustomed to comply; (iii) any agreement between any Authorities; and (iv) any customary agreement between any Authority and any Party.

Party” means any party to this Indenture.

Section 2.16.Certain Matters pertaining to the Trustee.

(a)The Trustee shall have no responsibility or obligation to any beneficial owner of a Global Note, an Agent Member or any other Person with respect to (i) the accuracy of the records of the CSK, the Clearing Systems or its nominee or of any participant or member thereof, with respect to any ownership interest in the Notes, (ii) the delivery to any participant, member, beneficial owner or other Person (other than the Clearing Systems) of any notice (including any notice of redemption) or the payment of any amount or delivery of any Notes (or other security or property) under or with respect to such Notes, or (ii) the selection of the particular Notes or portions thereof to be redeemed or refunded in the event of a partial redemption or refunding of the Notes. All notices and communications to be given to the Holders and all payments to be made to Holders in respect of the Notes shall be given or made only to or upon the order of the registered Holders (which shall be the CSK or its nominee in the case of a Global Note). The rights of beneficial owners in any Global Note shall be exercised only through the CSK subject to the applicable rules and procedures of the Clearing Systems. The Trustee may rely and shall


be fully protected in relying upon information furnished by the Clearing Systems with respect to its members, participants and any beneficial owners.

Section 3.01.Notices to Trustee.

If the Issuer elects to redeem the Notes pursuant to Section 3.07 hereof, it shall furnish to the Trustee, at least 10 days (or such shorter period as shall be acceptable to the Trustee) before notice of redemption is required to be mailed or caused to be mailed to holders pursuant to Section 3.03 hereof but not more than 60 days before a Redemption Date, an Officer’s Certificate setting forth the paragraph or subparagraph of such Note and/or Section of this Indenture pursuant to which the redemption shall occur, the Redemption Date, the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed and the redemption price.

If less than all of the Notes are to be redeemed or purchased in an offer to purchase at any time, the Trustee shall select the Notes to be redeemed or purchased on a pro rata basis. In the event of partial redemption or purchase by lot, the particular Notes to be redeemed or purchased shall be selected, unless otherwise provided herein, not less than 30 nor more than 60 days prior to the Redemption Date by the Trustee from the outstanding Notes not previously called for redemption or purchase.

The Trustee shall promptly notify the Issuer in writing of the Notes selected for redemption or purchase and, in the case of any Note selected for partial redemption or purchase, the principal amount thereof to be redeemed or purchased. Notes and portions of Notes selected shall be in amounts of €100,000 or whole multiples of €1,000 in excess thereof; no Notes of €100,000 or less can be redeemed in part, except that if all of the Notes of a holder are to be redeemed or purchased, the entire outstanding amount of Notes held by such holder, even if not €100,000 or a multiple of €1,000 in excess thereof. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, provisions of this Indenture that apply to Notes called for redemption or purchase also apply to portions of Notes called for redemption or purchase.


Section 3.03.Notice of Redemption.

Subject to Section 4.08 hereof, the Issuer shall mail or cause to be mailed by first-class mail notices of redemption at least 30 days but not more than 60 days before the Redemption Date to each holder of Notes to be redeemed at such holder’s registered address, while the Notes are in global form, or otherwise in accordance with the procedures of the ICDSs, if applicable, except that redemption notices may be mailed more than 60 days prior to a Redemption Date if the notice is issued in connection with ARTICLE 12 or ARTICLE 14 hereof.

The notice shall identify the Notes (including the ISIN numbers) to be redeemed and shall state:

(a)the Redemption Date;

(b)the redemption price;

(c)if any Note is to be redeemed in part only, the portion of the principal amount of that Note that is to be redeemed and that, after the Redemption Date upon surrender of such Note, a new Note or Notes in principal amount equal to the unredeemed portion of the original Note representing the same indebtedness to the extent not redeemed will be issued in the name of the holder of the Notes upon cancellation of the original Note;

(d)the name and address of the Paying Agent;

(e)that Notes called for redemption must be surrendered to the Paying Agent to collect the redemption price;

(f)that, unless the Issuer or the Guarantor defaults in making such redemption payment, interest and Additional Amounts, if any, on Notes called for redemption ceases to accrue on and after the Redemption Date;

(g)the paragraph or subparagraph of the Notes and/or Section of this Indenture pursuant to which the Notes called for redemption are being redeemed; and

(h)that no representation is made as to the correctness or accuracy of the ISIN number, if any, listed in such notice or printed on the Notes.

At the Issuer’s request, the Paying Agent shall (or the Trustee may but shall not be obliged to) give the notice of redemption in the Issuer’s name and at the Issuer’s expense; provided that the Issuer shall have delivered to the Paying Agent and Trustee, at least 10 days (or such shorter period as shall be acceptable to the Paying Agent or Trustee) before notice of redemption is required to be mailed or caused to be mailed to holders pursuant to this Section 3.03 (unless a shorter notice shall be agreed to by the Paying Agent or Trustee), an Officer’s Certificate requesting that the Trustee or Paying Agent give such notice and setting forth the information to be stated in such notice as provided in the preceding paragraph.


Section 3.04.Effect of Notice of Redemption.

Once notice of redemption is mailed in accordance with Section 3.03 or Section 3.08 hereof, as applicable, Notes called for redemption become irrevocably due and payable on the Redemption Date at the redemption price. The notice, if mailed in a manner herein provided, shall be conclusively presumed to have been given, whether or not the holder receives such notice. In any case, failure to give such notice by mail or any defect in the notice to the holder of any Note designated for redemption in whole or in part shall not affect the validity of the proceedings for the redemption of any other Note. Subject to Section 3.05 hereof, on and after the Redemption Date, interest ceases to accrue on Notes or portions thereof called for redemption.

Section 3.05.Deposit of Redemption or Purchase Price.

Prior to 10:00 a.m. (New York time) on the Redemption Date or purchase date (including any purchase pursuant to Section 4.08), the Issuer shall deposit with the Trustee or with the Paying Agent or by such other entity designated or appointed by the Trustee money sufficient to pay the redemption or purchase price of and accrued and unpaid interest and Additional Amounts, if any, and premium, if any, on all Notes to be redeemed or purchased on that date. The Trustee or the Paying Agent or such other entity designated or appointed by the Trustee shall promptly, and in any event within two (2) Business Days after the Redemption Date or purchase date, return to the Issuer any money deposited with the Trustee or the Paying Agent by the Issuer in excess of the amounts necessary to pay the redemption or purchase price of, and accrued and unpaid interest and Additional Amounts, if any, on, all Notes to be redeemed or purchased.

If the Issuer complies with the provisions of the preceding paragraph, on and after the Redemption Date or purchase date (including any purchase pursuant to Section 4.08), interest and Additional Amounts, if any, shall cease to accrue on the Notes or the portions of Notes called for redemption or purchase. If a Note is redeemed or purchased on or after a Record Date but on or prior to the related Interest Payment Date, then any accrued and unpaid interest and Additional Amounts, if any, to, but excluding, the Redemption Date or purchase date shall be paid to the Person in whose name such Note was registered at the close of business on such Record Date.

Section 3.06.Notes Redeemed or Purchased in Part.

Upon surrender of a Note that is redeemed or purchased in part, the Issuer shall issue and the Trustee or an Authenticating Agent shall authenticate (and instruct the CSK to effectuate) for the holder at the expense of the Issuer a new Note equal in principal amount to the unredeemed or unpurchased portion of the Note surrendered representing the same indebtedness to the extent not redeemed or purchased; provided that each new Note will be in a principal amount of €100,000 or an integral multiple of €1,000. It is understood that, notwithstanding anything in this Indenture to the contrary, only an Authentication Order and not an Opinion of Counsel or Officer’s Certificate is required for the Trustee to authenticate such new Note.


Section 3.07.Optional Redemption.

(a)Prior to August 6, 2028 (the “Par Call Date”), the Notes may be redeemed at the option of the Issuer, in whole or in part, in cash, upon notice as set forth in Section 3.03. The redemption price for the Notes to be redeemed on any Redemption Date shall be equal to the greater of the following amounts:

(i)100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed on the Redemption Date; or

(ii)the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest in respect of the notes being redeemed that would be due if the notes being redeemed matured on the Par call Date (in each case, not including the amount, if any, of unpaid interest accrued to, but excluding, the redemption date) discounted to the redemption date on an annual, ACTUAL/ACTUAL basis (in accordance with the rules of the International Capital Markets Association), at the Comparable Government Bond Rate plus 20 basis points.

Beginning on August 6, 2028, the Issuer may redeem the notes, in whole or in part from time to time, at its option, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes being redeemed.

plus, in each case, accrued and unpaid interest and Additional Amounts, if any, on the Notes to, but excluding, the Redemption Date. The redemption price will be calculated on an annual, ACTUAL/ACTUAL basis (in accordance with the rules of the International Capital Markets Association).

The provisions of this Section 3.07 shall be subject to Section 4.01 hereof.

Section 3.08.Redemption for Tax Reasons.

(a)The Issuer may redeem the Notes in whole, but not in part, at any time upon giving not less than 30 nor more than 60 days’ notice to the Holders of the Notes (which notice will be irrevocable) at a redemption price equal to 100.00% of the principal amount thereof, together with accrued and unpaid interest (including any Additional Amounts) that will become due on the Tax Redemption Date as a result of the redemption or otherwise, if any, to the date fixed by the Issuer for redemption (the “Tax Redemption Date”) (subject to the right of Holders of the Notes on the relevant record date to receive interest and Additional Amounts (if any) due on a relevant interest payment date), if the Issuer determines that, as a result of:

(i)any change in, or amendment to, the law (or any regulations or rulings promulgated thereunder) of a Relevant Taxing Jurisdiction (as defined below) affecting taxation; or

(ii)any change in position regarding the application, administration or interpretation of such laws, treaties, regulations or rulings (including a holding, judgment or order by a court of competent jurisdiction) (each of the foregoing in clauses (i) and (ii), a “Change in Tax Law”),


the Issuer or the Guarantor is, or on the next interest payment date in respect of the Notes would be, required to pay Additional Amounts and the Issuer or the Guarantor cannot avoid any such payment obligation by taking reasonable measures available to it (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the appointment of a new paying agent) and, in the case of the Guarantor, only if the relevant payment cannot reasonably be made by the Issuer without the obligation to pay an Additional Amount. The Change in Tax Law must be publicly announced and become effective on or after the date of the Offering Memorandum (or, if the applicable Tax jurisdiction first becomes a Relevant Taxing Jurisdiction on a date after the date of the Offering Memorandum, such later date). Notice of redemption for tax reasons will be published in accordance with the procedures described in this Indenture. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no such notice of redemption will be given earlier than 90 days prior to the earliest date on which the Payor would be obliged to make such payment of Additional Amounts were a payment due.

(b)In connection with the delivery of any notice of redemption of the Notes pursuant to the foregoing, the Issuer will deliver to the Trustee (a) an Officer’s Certificate stating that the Issuer is entitled to effect such redemption and setting forth a statement of facts showing that the conditions precedent to its right to so redeem have been satisfied; and (b) an opinion of an independent tax counsel (including, for the avoidance of doubt, tax accountants) of recognized standing to the effect that a Change in Tax Law has occurred that will require the payment of Additional Amounts on the next interest payment date. The Trustee will be entitled to conclusively rely upon such Officer’s Certificate and opinion as sufficient evidence of the satisfaction of the conditions precedent as described above, in which event they will be conclusive and binding on the Holders of the Notes.

(c)The foregoing provisions will apply mutatis mutandis to any successor to the Issuer after such successor person becomes a party to this Indenture.

ARTICLE 4
Particular Covenants of the Issuer and the Guarantor

Section 4.01.Payment of Principal, Premium and Interest.

The Issuer covenants and agrees that it will duly and punctually pay or cause to be paid the principal of and premium, if any, and interest, on each of the Notes at the places, at the respective times and in the manner provided herein and in the Notes.

The Issuer will be responsible for making calculations called for under the Notes, including, but not limited to, determination of redemption price, premium, if any, and other amounts payable on the Notes, if any. The Issuer will make the calculations in good faith and, absent manifest error, their calculations will be final and binding on the holders. The Issuer will provide a schedule of their calculations to the Trustee when applicable, and the Trustee is entitled to rely conclusively on the accuracy of the Issuer’s calculations without independent verification.

Section 4.02.Maintenance of Office or Agency.

The Issuer shall maintain an office or agency where Notes may be presented for registration of transfer or for exchange and an office or agency where Notes may be


presented for payment (the “Place of Payment”). The Issuer shall cause the Paying Agent and the Registrar to maintain an office or agency in the New York, U.S.A. The Place of Payment will initially be the office of the Paying Agent at 452 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York 10018 (or such other office of the Paying Agent in New York, U.S.A.as agreed to by the Issuer and the Paying Agent). The Issuer will give prompt written notice to the Trustee of the location, and any change in the location, of such office or agency not designated or appointed by the Trustee. If at any time the Issuer shall fail to maintain any such required office or agency or shall fail to furnish the Trustee with the address thereof, such presentations, surrenders, notices and demands may be made or served at the Corporate Trust Office of the Trustee or at the address of the Trustee’s designee, in either case, as agent of the Issuer.

The Issuer may also from time to time designate co-registrars and one or more offices or agencies where the Notes may be presented or surrendered for any or all such purposes and may from time to time rescind such designations. The Issuer will give prompt written notice to the Trustee of any such designation or rescission and of any change in the location of any such other office or agency.

So long as the Trustee is the Registrar, the Trustee agrees to mail, or cause to be mailed, the notices set forth in Section 7.09(b) and the third paragraph of Section 7.10. If co-registrars have been appointed in accordance with this Section, the Trustee shall mail such notices only to the Issuer and the holders of Notes it can identify from its records.

Section 4.03.Appointments to Fill Vacancies in Trustee’s Office.

The Issuer, whenever necessary to avoid or fill a vacancy in the office of Trustee, will appoint, in the manner provided in Section 7.09, a Trustee, so that there shall at all times be a Trustee hereunder.

Section 4.04.Provisions as to Paying Agent.

(a)If the Issuer shall appoint a Paying Agent other than the Trustee, the Issuer will cause such Paying Agent to execute and deliver to the Trustee an instrument in which such agent shall agree with the Trustee, subject to the provisions of this Section 4.04:

(i)that it will hold all sums held by it as such agent for the payment of the principal of, or premium, if any, or interest on, the Notes (whether such sums have been paid to it by the Issuer or by any other obligor on the Notes) for the benefit of the holders of the Notes;

(ii)that it will give the Trustee written notice of any failure by the Issuer (or by any other obligor on the Notes) to make any payment of the principal of, or premium, if any, or interest on, the Notes when the same shall be due and payable; and

(iii)that at any time during the continuance of an Event of Default, upon request of the Trustee, it will forthwith pay to the Trustee all sums so held.

The Issuer shall, on or before each due date of the principal of, or premium if any, or interest on, the Notes, deposit with the Paying Agent a sum (in funds which are immediately


available on the due date for such payment) sufficient to pay such principal, premium, if any, interest or Additional Amounts, if any, and (unless such Paying Agent is the Trustee) the Issuer will promptly notify the Trustee in writing of any failure to take such action; provided that if such deposit is made on the due date, such deposit shall be received by the Paying Agent by 10:00 a.m. New York time, on such date.

(b)If the Issuer shall act as the Paying Agent, it will, on or before each due date of the principal of, or premium, if any, or interest on, the Notes, set aside, segregate and hold for the benefit of the holders of the Notes a sum sufficient to pay such principal, premium, if any, interest or Additional Amounts, if any, so becoming due, will account for any funds disbursed by it and will promptly notify the Trustee in writing of any failure to take such action and of any failure by the Issuer (or any other obligor under the Notes) to make any payment of the principal of, or premium, if any, or interest on, the Notes when the same shall become due and payable.

(c)Anything in this Section 4.04 to the contrary notwithstanding, the Issuer may, at any time, for the purpose of obtaining a satisfaction and discharge of this Indenture, or for any other reason, pay or cause to be paid to the Trustee all sums held by the Issuer or any Paying Agent hereunder as required by this Section 4.04, such sums to be held by the Trustee upon the trusts herein contained and upon such payment by the Issuer or any Paying Agent to the Trustee, the Issuer or such Paying Agent shall be released from all further liability with respect to such sums.

(d)Anything in this Section 4.04 to the contrary notwithstanding, the agreement to hold sums as provided in this Section 4.04 is subject to Sections 12.03 and 12.04.

The Trustee shall not be responsible for the actions of any other Paying Agents (including the Issuer if acting as the Paying Agent) and shall have no control of any funds held by such other Paying Agents.

Section 4.05.Existence.

The Issuer represents and warrants that:

(a)it has been duly organized and is validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of organization and has obtained all necessary approvals, permits, authorizations and licenses from the authorities required by it under the laws and regulations of its jurisdiction of organization to carry on its business as now conducted;

(b)it has the requisite power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under this Indenture and has taken all necessary action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance of its obligations under the this Indenture;

(c)this Indenture has been duly executed and delivered by it and constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of it, enforceable against it in accordance with the terms hereof; and

(d)Subject to ARTICLE 11, the Issuer and the Guarantor will do or cause to be done all things necessary to preserve and keep in full force and effect its corporate existence.


Section 4.06.Limitation on Liens.

The Guarantor agrees that it will not, nor will it permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, create, incur, issue, assume or guarantee any Secured Debt upon any Principal Property or any shares of stock or indebtedness for borrowed money of any Restricted Subsidiary, whether owned at the date hereof or hereafter acquired, without in any such case effectively providing, concurrently with the creation, incurrence, issuance, assumption or guarantee of any such Secured Debt, that the Notes (together with, if the Issuer or the Guarantor shall so determine, any other indebtedness of or guaranteed by the Guarantor or such Restricted Subsidiary ranking equally with the Notes or the Guarantee and then existing or thereafter created) shall be secured equally and ratably with or, at the Guarantor’s option, prior to such Secured Debt so long as such Secured Debt shall be secured. The term “Secured Debt” means any indebtedness for money borrowed secured by a Lien. The foregoing restrictions shall not apply to, and there shall be excluded from Secured Debt in any computation under such restriction, Secured Debt secured by:

(a)Liens on any property, shares of stock or indebtedness for borrowed money of any entity existing at the time such entity becomes a Restricted Subsidiary;

(b)Liens on property or shares of stock existing at the time of the acquisition of such property or stock by the Guarantor or a Restricted Subsidiary, or existing as of the original date hereof;

(c)Liens to secure the payment of all or any part of the price of acquisition, construction or improvement of such property or stock by the Guarantor or a Restricted Subsidiary, or to secure any Secured Debt incurred by the Guarantor or a Restricted Subsidiary, prior to, at the time of, or within 180 days after, the later of the acquisition or completion of construction (including any improvements on an existing property), which Secured Debt is incurred for the purpose of financing all or any part of the purchase price thereof or construction of improvements thereon; provided, however, that, in the case of any such acquisition, construction or improvement, the Lien shall not apply to any property theretofore owned by the Guarantor or a Restricted Subsidiary, other than, in the case of any such construction or improvement, any theretofore substantially unimproved real property on which the property or improvement so constructed is located;

(d)Liens granted in favor of, or for the benefit of, the Guarantor or a Restricted Subsidiary;

(e)Liens on property of an entity existing at the time such entity is merged into or consolidated with the Guarantor or a Restricted Subsidiary or at the time of a sale, lease or other disposition of the properties of an entity as an entirety or substantially as an entirety to the Guarantor or a Restricted Subsidiary;

(f)Liens to secure Hedging Obligations entered into in the ordinary course of business for bona fide hedging purposes to purchase any raw material or other commodity or to hedge risks or reduce costs with respect to the Guarantor’s, or any Restricted Subsidiary’s, interest rate, currency or commodity exposure, and not for speculative purposes;


(g)easements, rights-of-way, restrictions, encroachments, protrusions and other similar encumbrances on real property which in the aggregate do not materially detract from the value of such property or materially interfere with the ordinary conduct of the business of the Guarantor or its Restricted Subsidiaries; and

(h)Any extension, renewal or replacement (or successive extensions, renewals or replacements) in whole or in part of any Lien referred to in clauses (a) through (g) above; provided, however, that the principal amount of Secured Debt so secured shall not exceed the principal amount of Secured Debt so secured at the time of such extension, renewal or replacement (except any amounts committed on the date of this Indenture), and that such extension, renewal or replacement shall be limited to all or a part of the property which secured the Lien so extended, renewed or replaced (plus improvements and construction on such property).

Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 4.06, the Guarantor and any one or more Restricted Subsidiaries may, without securing the Notes, create, incur, issue, assume or guarantee Secured Debt secured by a Lien which would otherwise be subject to the foregoing restrictions in an aggregate amount which, together with all other Secured Debt of the Guarantor and its Restricted Subsidiaries which (if originally created, incurred, issued, assumed or guaranteed at such time) would otherwise be subject to the foregoing restrictions (not including Secured Debt permitted to be secured under clauses (a) through (h) above), does not at the time exceed 15% of Consolidated Net Tangible Assets of the Guarantor as shown on the consolidated financial statements of the Guarantor as of the end of the fiscal year preceding the date of determination.

Section 4.07.Limitation on Sale and Lease-Back Transactions.

The Guarantor shall not, nor shall it permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, enter into any arrangement with any Person providing for the leasing by the Guarantor or any Restricted Subsidiary of any Principal Property, whether such Principal Property is now owned or hereafter acquired (except for temporary leases for a term, including renewals at the option of the lessee, of not more than three years and except for leases between the Guarantor and a Restricted Subsidiary or between Restricted Subsidiaries), which Principal Property has been or is to be sold or transferred by the Guarantor or such Restricted Subsidiary to such Person (herein referred to as a “Sale and Leaseback Transaction”) with the intention of taking back a lease of such Principal Property, unless

(a)the Guarantor or such Restricted Subsidiary would be entitled, pursuant to the provisions of Section 4.06, to create, incur, issue, assume or guarantee indebtedness secured by a Lien upon such Principal Property at least equal in amount to the Attributable Debt in respect of such arrangement without equally and ratably securing the Notes, provided, however, that from and after the date on which such arrangement becomes effective the Attributable Debt in respect of such arrangement shall be deemed for all purposes to be Secured Debt subject to the provisions of Section 4.06;

(b)Since the date hereof and within a period of twelve months before and twelve months after the consummation of the Sale and Leaseback Transaction, the Guarantor or any Restricted Subsidiaries, as the case may be, has expended or will expend for the Principal


Property an amount equal to: the net proceeds of the Sale and Leaseback Transaction and the Guarantor elects to designate such amount as a credit against such Sale and Leaseback Transaction; or a part of the net proceeds of the Sale and Leaseback Transaction and the Guarantor elects to designate such amount as a credit against such Sale and Leaseback Transaction and applies an amount equal to the remainder of the net proceeds as described below;

(c)such Sale and Leaseback Transaction does not come within the exceptions provided in Section 4.07(a) and the Guarantor does not make the election permitted by Section 4.07(b) or makes such election only as to a part of such net proceeds, in either of which events the Guarantor shall apply an amount in cash equal to the Attributable Debt in respect of such arrangement (less any amount elected under Section 4.07(b) above) to the retirement, within 180 days of the effective date of any such arrangement, of indebtedness for borrowed money of the Guarantor or any Restricted Subsidiary (other than indebtedness of the Guarantor for borrowed money which is subordinated to the Notes) which by its terms matures at or is extendible or renewable at the sole option of the obligor without requiring the consent of the obligees to a date more than twelve months after the date of the creation of such indebtedness for borrowed money (it being understood that such retirement may be made by prepayment of such indebtedness for borrowed money, if permitted by the terms thereof, as well as by payment at maturity, and that at the option of the Guarantor and pursuant to the terms of this Indenture, such indebtedness may include the Notes); or

(d)such Sale and Leaseback Transaction is a tax incentive sale and leaseback with a governmental entity where the Guarantor or Restricted Subsidiary has the option to purchase the underlying property at the end of the lease for nominal consideration.

Section 4.08.Offer to Repurchase Upon a Change of Control Triggering Event.

(a)If a Change of Control Triggering Event occurs, unless the Issuer has exercised its right to redeem the Notes as described under Section 3.07 hereof, the Issuer shall make an offer to purchase all of the Notes pursuant to the offer described below (the “Change of Control Offer”) at a price in cash (the “Change of Control Payment”) equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest and Additional Amounts, if any, to, but excluding, the date of purchase, subject to the right of holders of the Notes of record on the relevant Record Date to receive interest due on the relevant Interest Payment Date. Within 30 days following any Change of Control, or at the Issuer’s option, prior to the date of the Change of Control, but after public announcement thereof, the Issuer shall send notice of such Change of Control Offer by certified mail, with a copy to the Trustee, to each holder of Notes to the address of such holder appearing in the security register with a copy to the Trustee or otherwise in accordance with the procedures of the ICSDs, with the following information:

(i)that a Change of Control Offer is being made pursuant to this Section 4.08 and that all Notes properly tendered pursuant to such Change of Control Offer will be accepted for payment by the Issuer;

(ii)the purchase price and the purchase date, which will be no earlier than 30 days nor later than 60 days from the date such notice is mailed (the “Change of Control Payment Date”);


(iii)that any Note not properly tendered will remain outstanding and continue to accrue interest;

(iv)that unless the Issuer defaults in the payment of the Change of Control Payment, all Notes accepted for payment pursuant to the Change of Control Offer will cease to accrue interest and Additional Amounts, if any, on the Change of Control Payment Date;

(v)that holders electing to have any Notes purchased pursuant to a Change of Control Offer will be required to surrender such Notes, with the form entitled “Option of Holder to Elect Purchase” on the reverse of such Notes completed, to the Paying Agent specified in the notice at the address specified in the notice prior to the close of business on the third Business Day preceding the Change of Control Payment Date;

(vi)that holders shall be entitled to withdraw their tendered Notes and their election to require the Issuer to purchase such Notes, provided that the Paying Agent receives, not later than the close of business on the expiration date of the Change of Control Offer, a facsimile transmission or letter setting forth the name of the holder of the Notes, the principal amount of Notes tendered for purchase, if such Notes are certificated, the certificate numbers and ISIN numbers of the withdrawn Notes, the principal amount of such Notes, if any, that remain subject to the Change of Control Offer and a statement that such holder is withdrawing its tendered Notes and its election to have such Notes purchased; and

(vii)that if the Issuer is redeeming less than all of the Notes, the holders of the remaining Notes will be issued new Notes and such new Notes will be equal in principal amount to the unpurchased portion of the Notes surrendered. The unpurchased portion of the Notes must be equal to €100,000 or an integral multiple of €1,000 in excess thereof.

The notice, if mailed in a manner herein provided, shall be conclusively presumed to have been given, whether or not the holder receives such notice. If (a) the notice is mailed in a manner herein provided and (b) any holder fails to receive such notice or a holder receives such notice but it is defective, such holder’s failure to receive such notice or such defect shall not affect the validity of the proceedings for the purchase of the Notes as to all other holders that properly received such notice without defect. The Issuer shall comply with the requirements of Rule 13e-4 under the Exchange Act and any other securities laws and regulations thereunder to the extent such laws or regulations are applicable in connection with the repurchase of Notes pursuant to a Change of Control Offer. To the extent that the provisions of any securities laws or regulations conflict with the provisions of this Section 4.08, the Issuer shall comply with the applicable securities laws and regulations and shall not be deemed to have breached its obligations under this Section 4.08 by virtue thereof.

(b)On the Change of Control Payment Date, the Issuer shall, to the extent permitted by law,

(i)accept for payment all Notes issued by it or portions thereof properly tendered pursuant to the Change of Control Offer;


(ii)deposit with the Paying Agent an amount equal to the aggregate Change of Control Payment in respect of all Notes or portions thereof so tendered; and

(iii)deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the Registrar for cancellation the Notes so accepted together with an Officer’s Certificate and Opinion of Counsel (in form and substance satisfactory to the Trustee) to the Trustee stating that such Notes or portions thereof have been tendered to and purchased by the Issuer and confirming compliance with these conditions, which shall operate as sufficient evidence of the satisfaction of the conditions as described above, in which event they will be conclusive and binding on the Noteholders.

The Paying Agent will promptly mail to each holder of Notes properly tendered the Change of Control Payment for such Notes, and the Trustee will promptly authenticate and mail (or cause to be transferred by book entry) to each holder of a new Note equal in principal amount to any unpurchased portion of the Notes surrendered, if any; provided that each new Note will be in a principal amount of €100,000 and integral multiples of €1,000 in excess thereof.

(c)The Issuer shall not be required to make a Change of Control Offer following a Change of Control Triggering Event if a third party makes the Change of Control Offer in the manner, at the times and otherwise in compliance with the requirements set forth in this Section 4.08 applicable to a Change of Control Offer made by the Issuer and purchases all Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn under such Change of Control Offer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, a Change of Control Offer may be made in advance of a Change of Control Triggering Event, conditional upon such Change of Control Triggering Event, if a definitive agreement is in place for the Change of Control Triggering Event at the time of making of the Change of Control Offer.

(d)Other than as specifically provided in this Section 4.08, any purchase pursuant to this Section 4.08 shall be made pursuant to the provisions of Sections 3.02, 3.05 and 3.06 hereof.

Section 4.09.OFAC.

The Issuer covenants that it will not, directly or indirectly, use the proceeds hereof, or lend, contribute or otherwise make available such proceeds to any subsidiary, joint venture partner or other Person, (i) to fund any activities or business of or with any Person, or in any country or territory, that, at the time of such funding, is, or whose government is, the target or subject of Sanctions or (ii) in any other manner that would result in a violation of Sanctions by any Person.

Section 4.10.Compliance Certificate; Notice of Default.

The Issuer shall deliver to the Trustee, within ninety (90) days after the end of each fiscal year of the Issuer, an Officer’s Certificate, one of the signers of which shall be the principal executive officer, principal financial officer or principal accounting officer of the Issuer, stating whether or not to the best knowledge of the signers thereof the Issuer is in default in the performance and observance of any of the terms, provisions and conditions of this Indenture (without regard to any period of grace or requirement of notice provided hereunder)


and, if the Issuer shall be in default, specifying all such defaults and the nature and the status thereof of which the signer may have knowledge.

The Issuer will deliver to the Trustee, as soon as possible after the Issuer becomes aware of any Event of Default or an event which, with notice or the lapse of time or both, would constitute an Event of Default, an Officer’s Certificate setting forth the details of such Default or Event of Default and the action that the Issuer has taken, is taking or proposes to take with respect thereto.

Any notice required to be given under this Section 4.10 shall be delivered to a Responsible Officer of the Trustee at its Principal Corporate Trust Office.

Section 4.11.Additional Amounts. All payments made by or on behalf of the Issuer, any Subsidiary Guarantor or any successors thereto (a “Payor”) on the Notes (including any Subsidiary Guarantee for the purposes of this covenant) will be made without withholding or deduction for, or on account of, any present or future taxes, duties, assessments or governmental charges of whatever nature (including, without limitation, penalties and interest and other additions thereto) (collectively, “Taxes”) imposed or levied by or on behalf of any jurisdiction in which a Payor is organized or otherwise resident for tax purposes (or any political subdivision or governmental authority thereof or therein having the power to tax), or any jurisdiction from or through which payments are made (each, as applicable, a “Relevant Taxing Jurisdiction”) unless such withholding or deduction is then required by law or by the official interpretation or administration thereof.

In the event any withholding or deduction is required from payments made by or on behalf of a Payor with respect to the Notes or any Subsidiary Guarantee, including payments of principal, redemption price, interest or premium, the Payor will pay such additional amounts (“Additional Amounts”) as may be necessary in order that the net amounts received in respect of such payments by each Holder of the Notes after such withholding or deduction (including any such deduction or withholding from such Additional Amounts) equal the amounts which would have been received by it in respect of such payments in the absence of such withholding or deduction; provided, however, that no such Additional Amounts will be payable with respect to:

(a)any Taxes that would not have been so imposed but for the existence of any present or former connection between the relevant Holder or beneficial owner and the Relevant Taxing Jurisdiction imposing such Taxes (other than the mere acquisition, ownership or holding of such Note or enforcement of rights thereunder or under the Indenture or any Guarantee or the receipt of payments in respect thereof);

(b)any withholding tax due under the Dutch Withholding Tax Act 2021 (Wet bronbelasting 2021);

(c)any Taxes that would not have been so imposed if the Holder had made a declaration of non-residence or any other claim or filing for exemption to which it is legally entitled (provided that such declaration of non-residence or other claim or filing for exemption is required by the applicable law of the Relevant Taxing Jurisdiction as a precondition to exemption from the requirement to deduct or withhold all or a part of any such Taxes;


(d)any Taxes that would not have been imposed but for the presentation of a Note for payment (where presentation is required) more than 30 days after the relevant payment is first made available for payment to the Holder (except to the extent that the Holder would have been entitled to Additional Amounts had the Note been presented on the last day of such 30-day period);

(e)any Taxes that are not payable by way of deduction or withholding from a payment of the principal of, premium, if any, or interest on the Notes made under or with respect to any Note or Guarantee;

(f)any Taxes imposed under Sections 1471 through 1474 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), or any successor law or regulation implementing or complying with, or introduced in order to conform to, such sections, or imposed pursuant to any intergovernmental agreement or any agreement entered into pursuant to section 1471(b)(1) of the Code;

(g)any estate, inheritance, gift, sale, transfer, personal property, capital gains or similar tax, assessment or other governmental charge (including an excise tax in lieu thereof); or

(h)any combination of items (a) through (f) above.

Additional Amounts will not be paid with respect to any payment of the principal of or any premium or interest on the Notes or the Guarantees to any Holder of a Note who is a fiduciary or partnership or any person other than the sole beneficial owner of such payment to the extent that payment would be required by the laws of the Relevant Taxing Jurisdiction to be included in the income, for tax purposes, of a beneficiary of settlor with respect to the fiduciary, a member of that partnership or a beneficial owner who would not have been entitled to the Additional Amounts had that beneficiary, settlor, member or beneficial owner been the Holder.

The Payor will (i) make any required withholding or deduction and (ii) remit the full amount deducted or withheld to the Relevant Taxing Jurisdiction in accordance with applicable law. The Issuer will, upon request, make available to the Holders, within 30 days after the date on which the payment of any Taxes so deducted or withheld is due pursuant to applicable law, certified copies of tax receipts evidencing such payment by the Payor or if, notwithstanding the Payor’s reasonable efforts to obtain such receipts, the same are not obtainable, other evidence of such payment by the Payor.

At least 30 days prior to each date on which any payment under or with respect to the Notes is due and payable, if the Payor will be obligated to pay Additional Amounts with respect to such payment, the Payor will deliver to the Trustee an Officer’s Certificate stating the fact that such Additional Amounts will be payable and the amounts so payable. The Trustee shall be entitled to rely solely on each such Officer’s Certificate as conclusive proof that such payments are necessary.

Wherever mentioned in this Indenture or the Notes, in any context: (1) the payment of principal, (2) interest, or (3) any other amount payable on or with respect to the Notes, such reference shall be deemed to include payment of Additional Amounts as described under this heading to the


extent that, in such context, Additional Amounts are, were or would be payable in respect thereof.

The Payor will pay and indemnify the Holder for any present or future stamp, issue, transfer, court or documentary taxes or any other excise or property taxes, charges or similar levies which arise in any jurisdiction from the execution, delivery or registration of any Notes or any other document or instrument referred to therein (other than on a transfer of the Notes except for the initial sale by each initial purchaser of the Notes), or the receipt of any payments with respect to the Notes, excluding any such taxes, charges or similar levies imposed by any jurisdiction that is not a Relevant Taxing Jurisdiction.

The Issuer agrees to provide to the Trustee, and consents to the collection and processing by the Trustee of, any authorisations, waivers, forms, documentation and other information, relating to its status (or the status of its direct or indirect owners or Noteholders) or otherwise required to be reported, under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”) (the “FATCA Information”). The Issuer further consents to the disclosure, transfer and reporting of such FATCA Information to any relevant government or taxing. The Issuer further consents to the disclosure, transfer and reporting of such FATCA Information to any relevant government or taxing authority, any member of the Trustee’s group, any sub-contractors, Trustees, service providers or associates of the Trustee’s Group, and any person making payments to the Trustee or a member of the Trustee’s group, including transfers to jurisdictions which do not have strict data protection or similar laws, to the extent that the Trustee reasonably determines that such disclosure, transfer or reporting is necessary or warranted to facilitate compliance with FATCA. The Issuer agrees to inform the Trustee promptly, and in any event, within 30 days in writing if there are any changes to the FATCA Information supplied to the Trustee from time to time. The Issuer warrants that each person whose FATCA Information it provides (or has provided) to the Trustee has been notified of and agreed to and has been given such other information as may be necessary to permit, the collection, processing, disclosure, transfer and reporting of their information as set out in this paragraph.

The foregoing obligations will survive any termination, defeasance or discharge of this Indenture and will apply mutatis mutandis to any jurisdiction in which any successor to a Payor is organized or any political subdivision or taxing authority or agency thereof or therein.

ARTICLE 5
Noteholders’ Lists and Reports by the Issuer

Section 5.01.Issuer to Furnish Trustee Names and Addresses of Noteholders.

The Issuer covenants and agrees that it will furnish or cause to be furnished to the Trustee, semiannually, not more than ten (10) days after each October 6 in each year beginning with October 6, 2022, and at such other times as the Trustee may request in writing, within thirty (30) days after receipt by the Issuer of any such request (or such lesser time as the Trustee may reasonably request in order to enable it to timely provide any notice to be provided by it hereunder), a list in such form as the Trustee may reasonably require of the names and addresses of the registered holders of Notes as of the most recent Record Date (or such other date as the Trustee may reasonably request in order to so provide any such notices), except that no such list


need be furnished by the Issuer to the Trustee so long as the Trustee is acting as the sole Registrar.

Section 5.02.Preservation and Disclosure of Lists.

(a)The Registrar shall preserve, in as current a form as is reasonably practicable, all information as to the names and addresses of the holders of Notes contained in the most recent list furnished to it as provided in Section 5.01 or maintained by the Registrar or co-registrar in respect of the Notes, if so acting. The Registrar may destroy any list furnished to it as provided in Section 5.01 upon receipt of a new list so furnished.

Section 5.03.Reports by the Guarantor.

The Guarantor shall file with the Trustee and transmit to holders of the Notes, such information, documents and other reports as it is required to file with the Commission pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act within 30 days after the same is so required to be filed with the Commission; provided, however, that to the extent filing with the Commission on its EDGAR system shall constitute a permissible form of filing, transmission or delivery with or to the Trustee and the holders, then the filing of any such information, documents or other reports with the Commission on its EDGAR system (or any successor system on which filings are publicly accessible) shall be deemed to satisfy such requirement; provided, however, that the Trustee will have no responsibility to determine whether such filing has taken place. Delivery of such reports, information and documents to the Trustee is for informational purposes only and the Trustee’s receipt of such shall not constitute constructive notice of any information contained therein or determinable from information contained therein, including the Guarantor’s compliance with any of its covenants hereunder (as to which the Trustee is entitled to rely exclusively on Officer’s Certificates).

ARTICLE 6

then, and in each and every such case (other than an Event of Default specified in 6.01(f) or 6.01(g) that occurs with respect to the Issuer or the Guarantor), unless the principal of all of the Notes shall have already become due and payable, either the Trustee or the holders of not less than twenty-five percent (25%) in aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding hereunder determined in accordance with Section 8.04, by notice in writing to the Issuer and the Guarantor (and to the Trustee if given by Noteholders) specifying the respective Event of Default and stating that it is a “notice of acceleration”, may declare the principal of and premium, if any, on the outstanding Notes and the interest accrued and Additional Amounts, if any, thereon to be due and payable immediately, and upon receipt of such notice the same shall become and shall be immediately due and payable. If an Event of Default specified in 6.01(f) or 6.01(g) involving the Issuer or the Guarantor occurs, the principal of all the Notes and the interest accrued and Additional Amounts, if any, thereon shall be immediately and automatically due and payable without necessity of further action. This provision, however, is subject to the conditions that if, at any time after the principal of the Notes shall have been so declared due and payable, and before any judgment or decree for the payment of the monies due shall have been obtained or entered as hereinafter provided, the Issuer or the Guarantor shall pay or shall deposit with the Trustee a sum sufficient to pay all matured installments of interest and Additional Amounts, if any, upon all Notes and the principal of, and premium, if any, and Additional Amounts, if any, on, any and all Notes which shall have become due otherwise than by acceleration (with interest on overdue installments of interest (to the extent that payment of such interest is enforceable under applicable law) and on such principal and premium, if any, at the rate borne by the Notes plus 1%, to the date of such payment or deposit) and amounts due to the Trustee pursuant to Section 7.07, and if any and all defaults under this Indenture, other than the nonpayment of principal of, and premium, if any, Additional Amounts, if any, and accrued interest on, Notes which shall have become due by acceleration, shall have been cured or waived pursuant to Section 6.07, then and in every such case the holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding, by written notice to the Issuer and the Guarantor and to the Trustee, may waive all Defaults or Events of Default and rescind and annul such declaration and its consequences; but no such waiver or rescission and annulment shall extend to or shall affect any subsequent Default or Event of Default, or shall impair any right consequent thereon. In accordance with Section 4.09, the Issuer or the Guarantor, as the case may be, shall notify in writing a Responsible


Officer of the Trustee, promptly upon becoming aware thereof, of any Event of Default or any event which, with notice or the lapse of time or both, would constitute an Event of Default.

In case the Trustee shall have proceeded to enforce any right under this Indenture and such proceedings shall have been discontinued or abandoned because of such waiver or rescission and annulment or for any other reason or shall have been determined adversely to the Trustee, then and in every such case the Issuer, the holders of Notes, and the Trustee shall be restored respectively to their several positions and rights hereunder, and all rights, remedies and powers of the Issuer, the holders of Notes, and the Trustee shall continue as though no such proceeding had been taken.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the sole remedy for an Event of Default specified in Section 6.01(d) relating to the failure by the Guarantor to comply with Section 5.03 (the “Guarantor’s SEC Filing Obligations”) shall for the first 60 days after the occurrence of such an Event of Default consist exclusively of the right to receive an extension fee on the Notes equal to 0.25% of the principal amount of the Notes. If the Issuer elects, this extension fee will be payable on the outstanding Notes on the date on which an Event of Default relating to a failure to comply with the Guarantor’s SEC filing obligations first occurs. On such 60th day if such Event of Default has not been cured or waived pursuant to Section 6.07 prior to such 60th day, then the Trustee or the holders of not less than 25% in principal amount of the Notes may declare the principal of and accrued and unpaid interest and Additional Amounts, if any, and the extension fee on all such Notes to be due and payable immediately. This provision shall not affect the rights of Noteholders in the event of the occurrence of any other Event of Default. If the Issuer elects to pay the extension fee as the sole remedy for an Event of Default specified in Section 6.01(d) relating to the failure by the Issuer to comply with the Guarantor’s SEC filing obligations, the Issuer shall notify, in the manner provided for in Section 15.03, the Noteholders and the Trustee of such election at any time on or before the close of business on the date on which such Event of Default first occurs. If the extension fee is payable under this Section 6.01, the Issuer shall deliver to the Trustee an Officer’s Certificate to that effect stating the date on which the extension fee is payable. Unless and until a Responsible Officer of the Trustee receives at the Corporate Trust Office such an Officer’s Certificate, the Trustee may assume without inquiry that no extension fee is payable. If the extension fee has been paid by the Issuer directly to the persons entitled to such payment, the Issuer shall deliver to the Trustee a certificate setting forth the particulars of such payment.

Section 6.02.Payments of Notes on Default; Suit Therefor.

The Issuer covenants that in case default shall be made in the payment of any installment of interest or Additional Amounts upon any of the Notes as and when the same shall become due and payable, and such default shall have continued for a period of thirty (30) days, or in case default shall be made in the payment of the principal of or premium, if any, on any of the Notes as and when the same shall have become due and payable, whether at maturity of the Notes or in connection with any redemption or repurchase, by or under this Indenture or otherwise, then, upon demand of the Trustee, the Issuer will pay to the Trustee, for the benefit of the holders of the Notes, the whole amount that then shall have become due and payable on all such Notes for principal, premium, if any, interest or Additional Amounts, if any, as the case may be, with interest upon the overdue principal and premium, if any, and (to the extent that


payment of such interest is enforceable under applicable law) upon the overdue installments of interest (including Additional Amounts, if any) at the rate borne by the Notes, plus 1% and, in addition thereto, such further amount as shall be sufficient to cover the properly incurred costs and expenses of collection, including compensation to the Trustee, its agents, attorneys and counsel, and all other amounts due the Trustee under Section 7.07. Until such demand by the Trustee, the Issuer may pay the principal of, and premium, if any, and interest (including Additional Amounts) on, the Notes to the registered holders, whether or not the Notes are overdue.

In case the Issuer shall fail forthwith to pay such amounts upon such demand, the Trustee, in its own name and as trustee of an express trust, shall be entitled and empowered to institute any actions or proceedings at law or in equity for the collection of the sums so due and unpaid, and may prosecute any such action or proceeding to judgment or final decree, and may enforce any such judgment or final decree against the Issuer or any other obligor on the Notes and collect in the manner provided by law out of the property of the Issuer or any other obligor on the Notes wherever situated the monies adjudged or decreed to be payable.

In case there shall be pending proceedings for the bankruptcy or for the reorganization of the Issuer or any other obligor on the Notes under Title 11 of the United States Code, or any other applicable law, or in case a receiver, assignee or trustee in bankruptcy or reorganization, liquidator, sequestrator or similar official shall have been appointed for or taken possession of the Issuer or such other obligor, the property of the Issuer or such other obligor, or in the case of any other judicial proceedings relative to the Issuer or such other obligor upon the Notes, or to the creditors or property of the Issuer or such other obligor, the Trustee, irrespective of whether the principal of the Notes shall then be due and payable as therein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether the Trustee shall have made any demand pursuant to the provisions of this Section 6.02, shall be entitled and empowered, by intervention in such proceedings or otherwise, to file and prove a claim or claims for the whole amount of principal, premium, if any, interest and Additional Amounts, if any, owing and unpaid in respect of the Notes, and, in case of any judicial proceedings, to file such proofs of claim and other papers or documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Trustee, its agents and its counsel and of the Noteholders allowed in such judicial proceedings relative to the Issuer or any other obligor on the Notes, its or their creditors, or its or their property, and to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims, and to distribute the same after the deduction of any amounts due the Trustee under Section 7.07, and any receiver, assignee or trustee in bankruptcy or reorganization, liquidator, custodian or similar official is hereby authorized by each of the Noteholders to make such payments to the Trustee, and, in the event that the Trustee shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Noteholders, to pay to the Trustee any amount due it for properly incurred compensation, expenses, advances and disbursements, including counsel fees and expenses incurred by it up to the date of such distribution. The Trustee may participate as a member, voting or otherwise, of any committee of creditors appointed in such matters and, unless prohibited by law or applicable regulations, may vote on behalf of the Noteholders in any election of a trustee in bankruptcy or other Person performing similar functions. Any receiver, assignee or trustee in bankruptcy or reorganization, liquidator, custodian or similar official in any such judicial proceeding is authorized and directed by each Noteholder to only make payments to the Trustee unless the Trustee consents in writing to the making of such payments directly to the Noteholders subject to


the Trustee’s receipt of payment for any amounts due it for the properly incurred compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Trustee, its agents and its counsel, and any other amounts due the Trustee.

Nothing herein shall be deemed to empower the Trustee to authorize or consent to, or accept or adopt on behalf of any Noteholder, any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the Notes or the rights of any Noteholder, or to authorize the Trustee to vote in respect of the claim of any Noteholder in any such proceeding; provided, that the Trustee is authorized to report the vote of any Noteholder on any such plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition to the receiver, assignee or trustee in bankruptcy or reorganization, liquidator, custodian or similar official.

All rights of action and of asserting claims under this Indenture, or under any of the Notes, may be enforced by the Trustee without the possession of any of the Notes, or the production thereof at any trial or other proceeding relative thereto, and any such suit or proceeding instituted by the Trustee shall be brought in its own name as trustee of an express trust, and any recovery of judgment shall, after provision for the payment of the properly incurred compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Trustee, its agents and counsel, be for the ratable benefit of the holders of the Notes.

In any proceedings brought by the Trustee (and in any proceedings involving the interpretation of any provision of this Indenture to which the Trustee shall be a party) the Trustee shall be held to represent all the holders of the Notes, and it shall not be necessary to make any holders of the Notes parties to any such proceedings.

Section 6.03.Application of Monies Collected by Trustee.

Any monies or other compensation collected by the Trustee pursuant to this ARTICLE 6 shall be applied in the order following, at the date or dates fixed by the Trustee for the distribution of such monies or other compensation, upon presentation of the several Notes, and stamping thereon the payment, if only partially paid, and upon surrender thereof, if fully paid:

FIRST: To the payment of all amounts due the Trustee (including any other role or capacities in which the Trustee acts with respect to the Notes) and the Agents under Section 7.07;

SECOND: In case the principal of the outstanding Notes shall not have become due and be unpaid, to the payment of interest (including Additional Amounts, if any) on the Notes in default in the order of the maturity of the installments of such interest, with interest (to the extent that such interest has been collected by the Trustee) upon the overdue installments of interest (including Additional Amounts, if any) at the rate borne by the Notes plus 1%, such payments to be made ratably to the Persons entitled thereto;

THIRD: In case the principal of the outstanding Notes shall have become due, by declaration or otherwise, and be unpaid to the payment of the whole amount then owing and unpaid upon the Notes for principal and premium, if any,


and interest (including Additional Amounts, if any), with interest on the overdue principal and premium, if any, and (to the extent that such interest (including Additional Amounts, if any) has been collected by the Trustee) upon overdue installments of interest (including Additional Amounts, if any) at the rate borne by the Notes plus 1% to the Persons entitled thereto, and in case such monies shall be insufficient to pay in full the whole amounts so due and unpaid upon the Notes, then to the payment of such principal, premium, if any, interest and Additional Amounts, if any, without preference or priority of principal and premium, if any, over interest, or of interest over principal and premium, if any, or of any installment of interest over any other installment of interest, or of any Note over any other Note, ratably to the aggregate of such principal and premium, if any, and accrued and unpaid interest; and

FOURTH: To the payment of the remainder, if any, to the Issuer or any other Person lawfully entitled thereto.

Section 6.04.Proceedings by Noteholder.

No holder of any Note shall have any right by virtue of or by reference to any provision of this Indenture to institute any suit, action or proceeding in equity or at law upon or under or with respect to this Indenture, or for the appointment of a receiver, trustee, liquidator, custodian or other similar official, or for any other remedy hereunder, unless such holder previously shall have given to the Trustee written notice of an Event of Default and of the continuance thereof, as hereinbefore provided, and unless also the holders of not less than twenty-five percent (25%) in aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding shall have made written request upon the Trustee to institute such action, suit or proceeding in its own name as Trustee hereunder and shall have offered to the Trustee such reasonable indemnity or security (or both) satisfactory to the Trustee against the costs, expenses and liabilities to be incurred therein or thereby, and the Trustee for sixty (60) days after its receipt of such notice, request and offer of indemnity, shall have neglected or refused to institute any such action, suit or proceeding and no direction inconsistent with such written request shall have been given to the Trustee pursuant to Section 6.07; it being understood and intended, and being expressly covenanted by the taker and holder of every Note with every other taker and holder and the Trustee, that no one or more holders of Notes shall have any right in any manner whatever by virtue of or by reference to any provision of this Indenture to affect, disturb or prejudice the rights of any other holder of Notes, or to obtain or seek to obtain priority over or preference to any other such holder, or to enforce any right under this Indenture, except in the manner herein provided and for the equal, ratable and common benefit of all holders of Notes (except as otherwise provided herein). For the protection and enforcement of this Section 6.04, each and every Noteholder and the Trustee shall be entitled to such relief as can be given either at law or in equity.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Indenture and any provision of any Note, the right of any holder of any Note to receive payment of the principal of, and premium, if any (including the redemption or repurchase price upon redemption or repurchase pursuant to ARTICLE 3), and accrued interest on, such Note, on or after the respective due dates expressed in such Note or in the case of a redemption or repurchase, on the Redemption Date, or


to institute suit for the enforcement of any such payment on or after such respective dates against the Issuer shall not be impaired or affected without the consent of such holder.

Section 6.05.Proceedings by Trustee.

In case of an Event of Default which occurs and is continuing, the Trustee may, in its discretion, but shall not be required to, proceed to protect and enforce the rights vested in it by this Indenture by pursuing any available remedy to protect and enforce any of such rights, either by suit in equity or by action at law or by proceeding in bankruptcy or otherwise, whether for the specific enforcement of any covenant or agreement contained in this Indenture or in aid of the exercise of any power granted in this Indenture, or to enforce any other legal or equitable right vested in the Trustee by this Indenture or by law. The Trustee may maintain a proceeding even if it does not possess any of the Notes or does not produce any of them in any proceeding.

Section 6.06.Remedies Cumulative and Continuing.

All powers and remedies given by this ARTICLE 6 to the Trustee or to the Noteholders shall, to the extent permitted by law, be deemed cumulative and not exclusive of any thereof or of any other powers and remedies available to the Trustee or the holders of the Notes, by judicial proceedings or otherwise, to enforce the performance or observance of the covenants and agreements contained in this Indenture, and no delay or omission of the Trustee or of any holder of any of the Notes to exercise any right or power accruing upon any Default or Event of Default occurring and continuing as aforesaid shall impair any such right or power, or shall be construed to be a waiver of any such Default or any acquiescence therein, and, subject to the provisions of Section 6.04, every power and remedy given by this ARTICLE 6 or by law to the Trustee or to the Noteholders may be exercised from time to time, and as often as shall be deemed expedient, by the Trustee or by the Noteholders.

Section 6.07.Direction of Proceedings and Waiver of Defaults by Majority of Noteholders.

The holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes at the time outstanding determined in accordance with Section 8.04 shall have the right to direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the Trustee or exercising any trust or power conferred on the Trustee; provided that such direction shall not be in conflict with any rule of law or with this Indenture, and the Trustee may take any other action which is not inconsistent with such direction. The holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes at the time outstanding determined in accordance with Section 8.04 may, on behalf of the holders of all of the Notes, waive any past or existing default or Event of Default hereunder and its consequences except a past or existing Default in the payment of interest (including Additional Amounts, if any) or premium, if any, on, or the principal of, the Notes (including in connection with an offer to purchase); provided however that holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the then outstanding Notes may rescind an acceleration and its consequences, including any related payment default that resulted from such acceleration in accordance with Section 6.01, a default in the payment of the redemption price pursuant to ARTICLE 3, a default in the payment of the purchase price pursuant to Section 4.08 or a default in respect of a covenant or provisions hereof which under ARTICLE 10 cannot be modified or amended without the consent of the holders of each or all Notes then outstanding or


affected thereby. Upon any such waiver, the Issuer, the Trustee and the holders of the Notes shall be restored to their former positions and rights hereunder; but no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other Default or Event of Default or impair any right consequent thereon. Whenever any Default or Event of Default hereunder shall have been cured or waived as permitted by this Section 6.07, said Default or Event of Default shall for all purposes of the Notes and this Indenture be deemed to have been cured and to be not continuing for every purpose of this Indenture; but no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other Default or Event of Default or impair any right consequent thereon. The Trustee shall not be liable with respect to any action it takes or omits to take in reliance on a direction received by it pursuant to this Section 6.07.

Section 6.08.Undertaking to Pay Costs.

All parties to this Indenture agree, and each holder of any Note by his acceptance thereof shall be deemed to have agreed, that any court may, in its discretion, require, in any suit for the enforcement of any right or remedy under this Indenture, or in any suit against the Trustee for any action taken or omitted by it as Trustee, the filing by any party litigant in such suit of an undertaking to pay the costs of such suit and that such court may in its discretion assess the properly incurred costs, including attorneys’ fees and expenses, against any party litigant in such suit, having due regard to the merits and good faith of the claims or defenses made by such party litigant; provided that the provisions of this Section 6.08 (to the extent permitted by law) shall not apply to any suit instituted by the Trustee, to any suit instituted by any Noteholder, or group of Noteholders, holding in the aggregate more than 10% in principal amount of the Notes at the time outstanding determined in accordance with Section 8.04, or to any suit instituted by any Noteholder for the enforcement of the payment of the principal of, or premium, if any, or interest or Additional Amounts, if any, on, any Note on or after the due date expressed in such Note.

Section 6.09.Waiver of Stay or Extension Laws.

The Issuer covenants (to the extent that it may lawfully do so) that it shall not at any time insist upon, plead, or in any manner whatsoever claim or take the benefit or advantage of, any stay or extension law wherever enacted, now or at any time hereafter in force, or which may affect the covenants or the performance of this Indenture and the Issuer (to the extent it may lawfully do so) hereby expressly waives all benefit or advantage of any such law, and covenants that it will not, by resort to any such law, hinder, delay or impede the execution of any power herein granted to the Trustee, but will suffer and permit the execution of every such power as though no such law had been enacted.

ARTICLE 7

Section 7.01.Certain Duties and Responsibilities.

No provision of this Indenture shall require the Trustee to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur any 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 7.01.

If such Person publishes reports of condition at least annually, pursuant to law or to the requirements of its supervising or examining authority, then for the purposes of this Section 7.08, the combined capital and surplus of such Person 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 the Trustee shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of this Section 7.08, it shall resign immediately in the manner and with the effect hereinafter specified in this ARTICLE 7.

(b)The Trustee may resign at any time and be discharged of its duties by giving written notice thereof to the Issuer, specifying the date on which its desired resignation shall become effective. If an instrument of acceptance by a successor Trustee shall not have been delivered to the Trustee within 30 days after the giving of such notice of resignation, the resigning Trustee may petition, at the expense of the Issuer, any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Trustee.

(c)The Trustee may be removed at any time by act of the holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes, delivered to the Trustee and the Issuer. If an instrument of acceptance by a successor Trustee shall not have been delivered to the Trustee within 30 days after the giving of such notice of removal, the Trustee being removed may petition, at the expense of the Issuer, any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor.

(d)If at any time:

(i)the Trustee shall fail to comply with Section 7.08 after written request therefor by the Issuer or by any Noteholder who has been a bona fide holder of a Note for at least six months, or


(ii)the Trustee shall cease to be eligible under Section 7.08 and shall fail to resign after written request therefor by the Issuer or by any such Noteholder, or

(iii)the Trustee shall become incapable of acting or shall be adjudged a bankrupt or insolvent or a receiver of the Trustee or of its property shall be appointed or any public officer shall take charge or control of the Trustee or of its property or affairs for the purpose of rehabilitation, conservation or liquidation,

then, in any such case, the Issuer may remove the Trustee and appoint a successor trustee by written instrument, in duplicate, executed by order of the Board of Directors, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the Trustee so removed and one copy to the successor trustee, or, subject to the provisions of Section 6.08, any Noteholder who has been a bona fide holder of a Note or Notes for at least six (6) months may, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the removal of the Trustee and the appointment of a successor trustee.

(e)If the Trustee shall resign, be removed or become incapable of acting, or if a vacancy shall occur in the office of Trustee for any cause, the Issuer, by a resolution of the Board of Directors, shall promptly appoint a successor Trustee. If, within one year after such resignation, removal or incapability, or the occurrence of such vacancy, a successor Trustee shall be appointed by act of the holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes delivered to the Issuer and the retiring Trustee, the successor Trustee so appointed shall, forthwith upon its acceptance of such appointment, become the successor Trustee and supersede the successor Trustee appointed by the Issuer. If no successor Trustee shall have been so appointed by the Issuer or the holders and accepted appointment in the manner hereinafter provided, any Noteholder who has been a bona fide holder of a Note for at least six months may, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Trustee.

(f)The Issuer shall give notice of each resignation and each removal of the Trustee and each appointment of a successor Trustee to all holders in the manner provided in Section 15.03. Each notice shall include the name of the successor Trustee and the address of its Corporate Trust Office.

Section 7.10.Acceptance of Appointment of Successor.

Every successor Trustee appointed hereunder shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Issuer and to the retiring Trustee an instrument accepting such appointment, and thereupon the resignation or removal of the retiring Trustee shall become effective and such successor Trustee, without any further act, deed or conveyance, shall become vested with all the rights, powers, trusts and duties of the retiring Trustee; but, on written request of the Issuer or the successor Trustee, such retiring Trustee shall, upon payment of its charges, execute and deliver an instrument transferring to such successor Trustee all the rights, powers and trusts of the retiring Trustee and shall duly assign, transfer and deliver to such successor Trustee all property


and money held by such retiring Trustee hereunder. Upon request of any such successor Trustee, the Issuer shall execute any and all instruments for more fully and certainly vesting in and confirming to such successor Trustee all such rights, powers and trusts.

No successor Trustee shall accept its appointment unless at the time of such acceptance such successor Trustee shall be qualified and eligible under this ARTICLE 7.

Upon acceptance of appointment by a successor Trustee as provided in this Section 7.10, the Issuer (or the former Trustee, at the written direction and expense of the Issuer) shall mail or cause to be mailed notice of the succession of such Trustee hereunder to the holders of Notes at their addresses as they shall appear on the Note Register, which notice shall include the address of the Corporate Trust Office of such successor Trustee.

Any corporation into which the Trustee may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any corporation resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Trustee shall be a party, or any corporation succeeding to all or substantially all the corporate trust business of the Trustee, shall be the successor of the Trustee hereunder, provided such corporation shall be otherwise qualified and eligible under this ARTICLE 7, without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties hereto. In case any Notes shall have been authenticated, but not delivered, by the Trustee then in office, any successor by merger, conversion or consolidation to such authenticating Trustee may adopt such authentication and deliver the Notes so authenticated with the same effect as if such successor Trustee had itself authenticated such Notes.

ARTICLE 8
The Noteholders

Section 8.01.Action by Noteholders.

Whenever in this Indenture it is provided that the holders of a specified percentage in aggregate principal amount of the Notes may take any action (including the making of any demand or request, the giving of any notice, consent or waiver or the taking of any other action), the fact that at the time of taking any such action, the holders of such specified percentage have joined therein may be evidenced by any instrument or any number of instruments of similar tenor executed by Noteholders in person or by agent or proxy appointed in writing, or by the record of the holders of Notes voting in favor thereof at any meeting of Noteholders duly called and held in accordance with the provisions of ARTICLE 9, or by a combination of such instrument or instruments and any such record of such a meeting of Noteholders. Whenever the Issuer or the Trustee solicits the taking of any action by the holders of the Notes, the Issuer or the Trustee may fix in advance of such solicitation, a date as the record date for determining holders entitled to take such action. The record date shall be not more than fifteen (15) days prior to the date of commencement of initial solicitation of such action without giving effect to any extension or amendment of such action or solicitation.


Section 8.02.Proof of Execution by Noteholders.

Subject to the provisions of Sections 7.03 and 9.05, proof of the execution of any instrument by a Noteholder or its agent or proxy shall be sufficient if made in accordance with such reasonable rules and regulations as may be prescribed by the Trustee or in such manner as shall be satisfactory to the Trustee. The holding of Notes shall be proved by the registry of such Notes or by a certificate of the Registrar.

The record of any Noteholders’ meeting shall be proved in the manner provided in Section 9.06.

Section 8.03.Who Are Deemed Absolute Owners.

The Issuer, the Trustee, any Authenticating Agent, any Paying Agent and any Registrar may deem the Person in whose name such Note shall be registered upon the Note Register to be, and may treat it as, the absolute owner of such Note (whether or not such Note shall be overdue and notwithstanding any notation of ownership or other writing thereon made by any Person other than the Issuer or any Registrar) for the purpose of receiving payment of or on account of the principal of, and premium, if any, and interest on, such Note and for all other purposes; and neither the Issuer nor the Trustee nor any Authenticating Agent, any Paying Agent nor any Registrar shall be affected by any notice to the contrary. All such payments so made to any holder for the time being, or upon his order, shall be valid, and, to the extent of the sum or sums so paid, effectual to satisfy and discharge the liability for monies payable upon any such Note.

Section 8.04.Issuer-Owned Notes Disregarded.

In determining whether the holders of the requisite aggregate principal amount of Notes have concurred in any direction, consent, waiver or other action under this Indenture, Notes which are owned by the Issuer, the Guarantor or any other obligor on the Notes or any Affiliate of the Issuer or any other obligor on the Notes shall be disregarded and deemed not to be outstanding for the purpose of any such determination; provided that for the purposes of determining whether the Trustee shall be protected in relying on any such direction, consent, waiver or other action, only Notes which a Responsible Officer actually knows are so owned shall be so disregarded. Notes so owned which have been pledged in good faith may be regarded as outstanding for the purposes of this Section 8.04 if the pledgee shall establish to the satisfaction of the Trustee the pledgee’s right to vote such Notes and that the pledgee is not the Issuer, any other obligor on the Notes or any Affiliate of the Issuer or any such other obligor. In the case of a dispute as to such right, any good faith decision by the Trustee taken upon the advice of counsel shall be full protection to the Trustee. Upon request of the Trustee, the Issuer shall furnish to the Trustee promptly an Officer’s Certificate listing and identifying all Notes, if any, known by the Issuer to be owned or held by or for the account of any of the above described Persons, and, subject to Section 7.03, the Trustee shall be entitled to accept such Officer’s Certificate as conclusive evidence of the facts therein set forth and of the fact that all Notes not listed therein are outstanding for the purpose of any such determination.


Section 8.05.Revocation of Consents, Future Noteholders Bound.

At any time prior to (but not after) the evidencing to the Trustee, as provided in Section 8.01, of the taking of any action by the holders of the percentage in aggregate principal amount of the Notes specified in this Indenture in connection with such action, any holder of a Note which is shown by the evidence to be included in the Notes the holders of which have consented to such action may, by filing written notice with the Trustee at its Corporate Trust Office and upon proof of holding as provided in Section 8.02, revoke such action so far as concerns such Note. Except as aforesaid, any such action taken by the holder of any Note shall be a continuing action and conclusive and binding upon such holder and upon all future holders and owners of such Note and of any Notes issued in exchange or substitution therefor, irrespective of whether any notation in regard thereto is made upon such Note or any Note issued in exchange or substitution therefor. An amendment, supplement or waiver becomes effective in accordance with its terms and thereafter binds every holder.

ARTICLE 14
Defeasance

Section 14.01.Option to Effect Legal Defeasance or Covenant Defeasance.

The Issuer may, at the option of its Board of Directors evidenced by a resolution set forth in an Officer’s Certificate, at any time, elect to have either Section 14.02 or Section 14.03 hereof be applied to all outstanding Notes upon compliance with the conditions set forth in this ARTICLE 14.

Section 14.02.Defeasance Upon Deposit of Moneys or U.S. Government Obligations.

Upon the Issuer’s exercise under Section 14.01 hereof of the option applicable to this Section 14.02, the Issuer will, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section


14.04 hereof, be deemed to have discharged from its obligations with respect to all outstanding Notes on the date the conditions set forth below are satisfied (hereinafter, “Legal Defeasance”). For this purpose, Legal Defeasance means that the Issuer will be deemed to have paid and discharged the entire indebtedness represented by the outstanding Notes which will thereafter be deemed “outstanding” only for purposes of Section 14.05 hereof and the other Sections of this Indenture referred to in clauses (a) through (e) below, and to have satisfied all its other obligations under such Notes and this Indenture (and the Trustee, on demand of and at the expense of the Issuer, shall execute proper instruments acknowledging the same), except for the following provisions which will survive unless otherwise terminated or discharged hereunder:

(a)the rights of holders of outstanding Notes to receive, solely from the trust fund described in Sections 14.04 and 14.05 hereof, payments in respect of the principal of, or interest (and Additional Interest) or premium, if any, on such Notes when such payments are due under Section 4.01;

(b)the Issuer’s obligations with respect to the Notes concerning issuing temporary Notes, mutilated, destroyed, lost, stolen Notes and the maintenance of an office or agency for payment and money for security payments held in trust;

(c)the rights, powers, trusts, duties and immunities of the Trustee hereunder and the Issuer’s obligations in connection therewith;

(d)the optional redemption provisions with respect to the Notes; and

(e)this Section 14.02.

If the Issuer exercises under Section 14.01 hereof the option applicable to this Section 14.02, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 14.04 hereof, payment of the Notes may not be accelerated because of an Event of Default. Subject to compliance with this ARTICLE 14, the Issuer may exercise its option under this Section 14.02 notwithstanding the prior exercise of its option under Section 14.03 hereof.

Section 14.03.Covenant Defeasance.

Upon the Issuer’s exercise under Section 14.01 hereof of the option applicable to this Section 14.03, the Issuer will, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 14.04 hereof, be deemed to have discharged from its obligations under the covenants contained in Sections 4.05, 4.06, 4.07, 4.08, 4.09 and ARTICLE 11 hereof with respect to the outstanding Notes on and after the date the conditions set forth in Section 14.04 hereof are satisfied (hereinafter, “Covenant Defeasance”), and the Notes will thereafter be deemed not “outstanding” for purposes of any direction, waiver, consent or declaration or act of holders (and the consequences of any thereof) in connection with such covenants, but will continue to be deemed “outstanding” for all other purposes hereunder (it being understood that such Notes will not be deemed outstanding for accounting purposes). For this purpose, Covenant Defeasance means that, with respect to the outstanding Notes, the Issuer may omit to comply with and will have no liability in respect of any term, condition or limitation set forth in any such covenant, whether directly or indirectly, by reason of any reference elsewhere herein to any such covenant or by reason of any reference in any such covenant to any other provision herein or in any other


document and such omission to comply will not constitute a Default or Event of Default under Section 6.01 hereof, but, except as specified above, the remainder of this Indenture and such Notes will be unaffected thereby. In addition, upon the Issuer’s exercise under Section 14.01 hereof of the option applicable to this Section 14.03 hereof, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 14.04 hereof, payment of the Notes may not be accelerated because of an Event of Default specified in Sections 6.01(c) and 6.01(d).

Section 14.04.Conditions to Legal or Covenant Defeasance.

In order to exercise either Legal Defeasance or Covenant Defeasance under either Section 14.02 or 14.03 hereof:

(i)the Issuer shall have deposited or caused to be deposited irrevocably with the Trustee (or with such other entity designated or appointed by the Trustee for this purpose, or other qualifying trustee), specifically pledged as security for, and dedicated solely to, the benefit of the holders of the Notes cash in Euros, Government Obligations, or a combination thereof, in such amounts as will be sufficient, in the opinion of a nationally recognized investment bank, appraisal firm or firm of independent public accountants, to pay the principal of, premium and interest (including Additional Interest, if any) on the outstanding Notes on the stated date for payment thereof or on the applicable Redemption Date, as the case may be, and the Issuer must specify whether the Notes are being defeased to maturity or to a particular Redemption Date;

(ii)no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the date of such deposit (other than a Default or Event of Default resulting from the borrowing of funds to be applied to such deposit) or insofar as Events of Default from bankruptcy or insolvency events are concerned, at any time in the period ending on the 91st day after the date of deposit;

(iii)such Legal Defeasance or Covenant Defeasance will not result in a breach or violation of, or constitute a default under, any material agreement or instrument (other than the Indenture) to which the Issuer or any of its Significant Subsidiaries is a party or by which the Issuer, the Guarantor or any of its Significant Subsidiaries is bound;

(iv)the Issuer must deliver to the Trustee an Officer’s Certificate stating that the deposit was not made by the Issuer with the intent of preferring the holders of Notes being defeased over the other creditors of the Issuer with the intent of defeating, hindering, delaying or defrauding any other creditors of the Issuer or others;

(v)in the case of a Legal Defeasance, the Issuer shall have delivered to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel (in form and substance satisfactory to the Trustee) from a nationally recognized tax firm, confirming that the Issuer has received from, or there has been published by, the Internal Revenue Service a ruling or since the date of this Indenture, there has been a change in the applicable United States Federal income tax law, in either case to the effect that, and based thereon such Opinion of Counsel shall confirm that, the beneficial owners of the outstanding Notes will not recognize income, gain or loss for United States Federal income tax purposes as a result of such Legal Defeasance and will be subject to Federal income tax on the same amounts, in the same


manner and at the same times as would have been the case if such Legal Defeasance had not occurred;

(vi)the Issuer shall have delivered to the Trustee an Officer’s Certificate and an Opinion of Counsel (in form and substance satisfactory to the Trustee), each stating that all conditions precedent provided for or relating to the Legal Defeasance or the Covenant Defeasance have been complied with, which shall operate as sufficient evidence of the satisfaction of the conditions, in which event they will be conclusive and binding on the Noteholders;

(vii)in the case of a Covenant Defeasance, the Issuer shall have delivered to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel (in form and substance satisfactory to the Trustee) confirming that the beneficial owners of the outstanding Notes will not recognize income, gain or loss for United States Federal income tax on the same amounts, in the same manner and at the same times as would have been the case if such Covenant Defeasance had not occurred; and

(viii)the Issuer shall have delivered irrevocable instructions to the Trustee (or with such other entity designated or appointed by the Trustee for this purpose, or other qualifying trustee) under this Indenture to apply the deposited money toward the payment of the Notes at maturity or the Redemption Date, as the case may be (which instructions may be contained in the Officer’s Certificate referred to in clause (vi) above).

Notwithstanding the Issuer’s exercise of Covenant Defeasance, the Issuer may subsequently exercise Legal Defeasance.

Section 14.05.Deposited Money and Government Obligations to Be Held in Trust; Other Miscellaneous Provisions.

Subject to Section 14.06 hereof, all money and Government Obligations (including the proceeds thereof) deposited with or to the order of the Trustee (or with such other entity designated or appointed by the Trustee for this purpose, or other qualifying trustee, collectively for purposes of this Section 14.05, the “Trustee”) pursuant to Section 14.04 hereof in respect of the outstanding Notes shall be held and applied by the Trustee, in accordance with the provisions of such Notes and this Indenture, to the payment, either directly or through any Paying Agent (or with such other entity designated or appointed by the Trustee for this purpose, or other qualifying trustee) (including the Issuer acting as its own Paying Agent) as the Trustee may determine, to the holders of such Notes of all sums due and to become due thereon in respect of principal (and premium, if any) and interest (including Additional Interest), if any, but such money need not be segregated from other funds except to the extent required by law.

The Issuer shall pay and indemnify the Trustee against any tax, fee or other charge imposed on or assessed against the cash or Government Obligations deposited pursuant to Section 14.04 hereof or the principal and interest received in respect thereof other than any such tax, fee or other charge which by law is for the account of the holders of the outstanding Notes.


Notwithstanding anything in this ARTICLE 14 to the contrary, the Trustee will deliver or pay to the Issuer from time to time upon the request of the Issuer any money or Government Obligations held by it as provided in Section 14.04 hereof which, in the opinion of a nationally recognized investment bank, appraisal firm or firm of independent public accountants expressed in a written certification thereof delivered to the Trustee (which may be the opinion delivered under Section 14.04(a) hereof), are in excess of the amount thereof that would then be required to be deposited to effect an equivalent Legal Defeasance or Covenant Defeasance.

Section 14.06.Repayment to Issuer.

Any money deposited with or to the order of the Trustee or any Paying Agent (or with such other entity designated or appointed by the Trustee for this purpose, or other qualifying trustee), or then held by the Issuer, in trust for the payment of the principal of, premium or interest (including Additional Interest) on any Note and remaining unclaimed for two years after such principal, premium or interest or Additional Amounts, if any, has become due and payable shall be paid to the Issuer on its request or (if then held by the Issuer) will be discharged from such trust; and the holder of such Note will thereafter be permitted to look only to the Issuer for payment thereof, and all liability of the Trustee or such Paying Agent with respect to such trust money, and all liability of the Issuer as trustee thereof, will thereupon cease.

If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder into any currency other than Euros, the parties hereto agree, to the fullest extent permitted by law, that the rate of exchange used shall be the rate at which in accordance with normal banking procedures the Trustee or any Holder, as the case may be, could purchase Euros with such other currency in New York, U.S.A. on the Business Day preceding that on which final judgment is given. The obligation of the Guarantor or the Issuer with respect to any sum due from it to the Trustee or any Holder shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency other than Euros, be discharged only if and to the extent that on the first Business Day following receipt by the Trustee or such Holder, as the case may be, of any sum adjudged to be so due in such other currency, the Trustee or such Holder may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase Euros with such other currency. If the Euros so purchased are less than the sum originally due to the Trustee or such Holder hereunder, the Guarantor agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Trustee or such Holder against such loss. If the Euros so purchased are greater than the sum originally due to the Trustee or such Holder hereunder, the Trustee or such Holder, as the case may be, agrees to pay to the Guarantor an amount equal to the excess of the Euros so purchased over the sum originally due to the Trustee or such Holder hereunder.

In the case of any document originally issued in a language other than English, the English language version of any such document shall for purposes of this Indenture, and absent manifest error, control the meaning of the matters set out therein.

Section 15.17.Submission to Jurisdiction; Appointment of Agent.

Any suit, action or proceeding against the Issuer or the Guarantor or their respective properties, assets or revenues with respect to this Indenture, the Securities or the Guarantee (a “Related Proceeding”) may be brought in any state or Federal court in the Borough of Manhattan in The City of New York, New York, as the Person bringing such Related Proceeding may elect in its sole discretion. The Issuer and the Guarantor hereby consent to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of each such court for the purpose of any Related Proceeding and have irrevocably waived any objection to the laying of venue of any Related Proceeding brought in any such court and to the fullest extent they may effectively do so and the defense of an


inconvenient forum to the maintenance of any Related Proceeding or any such suit, action or proceeding in any such court. The Issuer and the Guarantor hereby agree that service of all writs, claims, process and summonses in any Related Proceeding brought against them in the State of New York may be made upon Corporation Service Company, located at 19 West 44th Street, Suite 200, New York, New York 10036 (the “Process Agent”). The Issuer has irrevocably appointed the Process Agent as its agent and true and lawful attorney in fact in its name, place and stead to accept such service of any and all such writs, claims, process and summonses, and hereby agrees that the failure of the Process Agent to give any notice to it of any such service of process shall not impair or affect the validity of such service or of any judgment based thereon. The Issuer and the Guarantor hereby agree to have an office or to maintain at all times an agent with offices in the United States of America to act as Process Agent. Nothing in this Indenture shall in any way be deemed to limit the ability to serve any such writs, process or summonses in any other manner permitted by applicable law.

Section 15.18.Waiver of Immunity.

To the extent that the Issuer or the Guarantor has or hereafter may acquire any immunity from jurisdiction of any court or from any legal process (whether through service of notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution or execution, on the ground of sovereignty or otherwise) with respect to itself or its property, it hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, such immunity in respect of its obligations under this Indenture, Securities and/or the Guarantee.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the minimum interest rate for this note shall at all times be no less than 0.00% per annum.

The interest so payable, and punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date will, as provided in such Indenture, be paid to the Person in whose name this Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on the Record Date (as defined below) immediately preceding such Interest Payment Date (each, a “Regular Record Date”); provided that the interest payable at the Maturity Date will be paid to the Person to whom principal is payable. Any such interest not so punctually paid or duly provided for will forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on such Regular Record Date and may either be paid to the Person in whose name this Note (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest to be fixed by the Trustee, notice whereof shall be given to Holders of the Notes not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date, or be paid at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange or automated quotation system on which the Notes may be listed or traded, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange or automated quotation system, all as more fully provided in the Indenture. In the case of a Global

If, on or after the date the Indenture, the Euro is unavailable to the Company (or the Guarantor, in the case of payments under the guaranty hereunder) due to the imposition of exchange controls or other circumstances beyond the Company’s (or the Guarantor’s, in the case of payments under the guaranty hereunder) control or if the Euro is no longer being used by the then-member states of the European Monetary Union that have adopted the Euro as their currency or for the settlement of transactions by public institutions of or within the international banking community, then all payments in respect of the Notes will be made in U.S. Dollars until the Euro is again available to the Company (or the Guarantor, as applicable) or so used. In such circumstances, the amount payable on any date in Euros will be converted into U.S. Dollars at the most recently available market exchange rate for euro as published by Bloomberg L.P. at the close of business on the second business day prior to the relevant payment date. or, in the event Bloomberg L.P. has not mandated a rate of conversion, on the basis of the then most recent U.S. Dollar/Euro exchange rate published in The Wall Street Journal on or most recently prior to the second business day prior to the relevant payment date. Any payment in respect of the Notes so made in U.S. Dollars will not constitute an Event of Default under the Notes or the Indenture. Neither the Trustee nor the Paying Agent shall have any responsibility for any calculation or conversion in connection with the foregoing.

Upon (a) any exchange of a part of such Global Security for an interest in another Global Security or for a definitive Note, (b) receipt of instructions from Euroclear or Clearstream (together with Euroclear, the “relevant Clearing Systems”) that, following the purchase by or on behalf of the Issuer of a part of such Global Security, part is to be cancelled or (c) any redemption of a part of that Global Security, the Issuer shall procure that the portion of the


principal amount of the Global Security so exchanged, cancelled or redeemed shall be entered pro rata in the records of the relevant Clearing Systems.

Upon any payment in respect of the Notes represented by a Global Security held under the New Safekeeping Structure, the Issuer shall procure that the amount so paid shall be entered pro rata in the records of the relevant Clearing Systems but any failure to make such entries shall not affect the validity of such payment.

Reference is hereby made to the further provisions of this Note set forth on the reverse hereof, which further provisions shall for all purposes have the same effect as if set forth at this place.

Unless the certificate of authentication hereon has been executed by the Trustee referred to on the reverse hereof by manual signature, this Note shall not be entitled to any benefit under the Indenture or be valid or obligatory for any purpose.

This Note shall not be valid unless effectuated by the entity acting as the common safekeeper for Euroclear Bank SA/NV or Clearstream Banking S.A.
