Additional Securities, shall be treated as a single class of securities under the Indenture. Terms used herein without definition and that are defined in the Indenture have the meanings assigned
to them in the Indenture.
6. Optional Redemption. The Securities are redeemable at the Companys election, in
whole or in part, at any time and from time to time at a redemption price equal to the greater of:
(1) 100% of the principal amount
of the Securities to be redeemed then outstanding; and
(2) as determined by an Independent Investment Banker, the sum of the present
values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Securities to be redeemed (not including any portion of such payments of interest accrued to the date of redemption) discounted to the redemption date on a semiannual basis
(assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Adjusted Treasury Rate, plus 15 basis points;
plus, in either of the above cases,
accrued and unpaid interest to the date of redemption on the Securities to be redeemed.
If the Company selects a redemption date that is
on or after a Regular Record Date and on or before the related Interest Payment Date, the accrued and unpaid interest, if any, shall be paid to the person in whose name the Security is registered at the close of business on such Regular Record Date.
The Company shall mail or cause to be mailed a notice of redemption at least 30 days, but not more than 60 days, before the redemption
date to each Holder of the Securities to be redeemed at its registered address, except that redemption notices may be mailed more than 60 days prior to a redemption date if the notice is issued in connection with a defeasance of the Securities or a
satisfaction and discharge of the Indenture. Notices of redemption may not be conditional.
Unless the Company defaults in payment of the
redemption price, on and after the redemption date, interest shall cease to accrue on the Securities or portions thereof called for redemption. Securities called for redemption become due on the date fixed for redemption.

Treasury securities adjusted to constant maturity under the caption Treasury Constant Maturities, for the maturity corresponding to the Comparable Treasury Issue (as defined below) (if no maturity is within three months before or after
the Remaining Life (as defined below), yields for the two published maturities most closely corresponding to the Comparable Treasury Issue shall be determined and the Adjusted Treasury Rate shall be interpolated or extrapolated from such yields on a
straight line basis, rounding to the nearest month); or
(2) if such release (or any successor release) is not published
during the week preceding the calculation date or does not contain such yields, the rate per annum equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue, calculated using a price for the Comparable Treasury Issue
(expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the Comparable Treasury Price (as defined below) for such redemption date.
The Adjusted Treasury Rate shall be calculated on the third Business Day preceding the redemption date.
Comparable Treasury Issue means the United States Treasury security selected by an Independent Investment Banker (as
defined below) as having a maturity comparable to the remaining term of the Securities (the
