[FORM OF REVERSE OF DEBENTURE]
This Security is one of a duly authorized issue of securities of the Company (herein called the “Securities”), issued and to be issued in one or more series under an Indenture (For Unsecured Debt Securities), dated as of June 1, 1999 (herein, together with any amendments thereto, called the “Indenture,” which term shall have the meaning assigned to it in such instrument), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon, as Trustee (herein called the “Trustee,” which term includes any successor trustee under the Indenture), and reference is hereby made to the Indenture, including the Board Resolutions and Officer’s Certificate filed with the Trustee on November 3, 2021 creating the series designated on the face hereof (herein called the “Officer’s Certificate”), for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Company, the Trustee and the Holders of the Securities of this series and of the terms upon which the Securities of this series are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered. This Security is one of the series designated on the face hereof.
Interest and Payment. The Securities of this series shall bear interest at a variable rate per annum (the “Interest Rate”) equal to Compounded SOFR (as defined below), plus 0.40% (0.40%, the “Margin”).
If any Interest Payment Date falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the Company will make the interest payment on the next succeeding Business Day unless that Business Day is in the next succeeding calendar month, in which case (other than in the case of the Stated Maturity Date or a Redemption Date) the Company will make the interest payment on the immediately preceding Business Day. If an interest payment is made on the next succeeding Business Day, no interest will accrue as a result of the delay in payment. If the Stated Maturity Date or a Redemption Date of the Securities of this series falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment due on such date will be postponed to the next succeeding Business Day, and no further interest will accrue in respect of such postponement.
On each Interest Payment Determination Date (as defined below) relating to the applicable Interest Payment Date, the Calculation Agent (as defined below) will calculate the amount of accrued interest payable on the Securities of this series by multiplying (i) the outstanding principal amount of the Securities of this series by (ii) the product of (a) the Interest Rate for the relevant Interest Period multiplied by (b) the quotient of the actual number of calendar days in such Observation Period divided by 360. In no event will the interest rate on the Securities of this series be less than zero.
Calculation Agent” means a banking institution or trust company appointed by the Company to act as calculation agent, initially The Bank of New York Mellon.
Compounded SOFR. Compounded SOFR” will be determined by the Calculation Agent in accordance with the following formula (and the resulting percentage will be rounded, if necessary, to the nearest one hundred-thousandth of a percentage point):
(

where:
SOFR IndexStart” = For periods other than the initial Interest Period, the SOFR Index value on the preceding Interest Payment Determination Date, and, for the initial Interest Period, the SOFR Index value on November 1, 2021;
SOFR IndexEnd” = The SOFR Index value on the Interest Payment Determination Date relating to the applicable Interest Payment Date (or, in the final Interest Period, relating to the Stated Maturity Date or, in the case of a redemption of the Securities of this series, relating to the applicable Redemption Date); and
dc” is the number of calendar days in the relevant Observation Period.
For purposes of determining Compounded SOFR,
Interest Payment Determination Date” means the date that is two U.S. Government Securities Business Days before each Interest Payment Date (or, in the final Interest Period, before the Stated Maturity Date or, in the case of a redemption of the Securities of this series, before the applicable Redemption Date).
Observation Period” means, in respect of each Interest Period, the period from and including the date that is two U.S. Government Securities Business Days preceding the first date in such Interest Period to but excluding the date that is two U.S. Government Securities Business Days preceding the Interest Payment Date for such Interest Period (or, in the final Interest Period, before the Stated Maturity Date or, in the case of a redemption of the Securities of this series, before the applicable Redemption Date).
SOFR Index” means, with respect to any U.S. Government Securities Business Day:
(1)the SOFR Index value as published by the SOFR Administrator (as defined below) as such index appears on the SOFR Administrator’s Website at 3:00 p.m. (New York time) on such U.S. Government Securities Business Day (the “SOFR Index Determination Time”); provided that:
(2)if a SOFR Index value does not so appear as specified in (1) above at the SOFR Index Determination Time, then: (i) if a Benchmark Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date (each, as defined below) have not occurred with respect to SOFR, then Compounded SOFR shall be the rate determined pursuant to the “SOFR Index Unavailable Provisions” described below; or (ii) if a Benchmark Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred with respect to SOFR, then Compounded SOFR shall be the rate determined pursuant to the “Effect of Benchmark Transition Event” provisions described below.
SOFR” means the daily secured overnight financing rate as provided by the SOFR Administrator on the SOFR Administrator’s Website.
SOFR Administrator” means the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (or a successor administrator of SOFR).

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Securities of this series, the Officer’s Certificate or the Indenture, if the Company or its designee (which may be an independent financial advisor or any other designee of the Company (any of such entities, a “Designee”)) determines on or prior to the relevant Reference Time (as defined below) that a Benchmark Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred with respect to determining Compounded SOFR, then the benchmark replacement provisions set forth below under “Effect of Benchmark Transition Event” will thereafter apply to all determinations of the rate of interest payable on the Securities of this series.

For the avoidance of doubt, in accordance with the benchmark replacement provisions, after a Benchmark Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred, the Interest Rate for each Interest Period on the Securities of this series will be an annual rate equal to the sum of the Benchmark Replacement and the applicable margin.

SOFR Index Unavailable Provisions. If a SOFR IndexStart or SOFR IndexEnd is not published on the associated Interest Payment Determination Date and a Benchmark Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have not occurred with respect to SOFR, “Compounded SOFR” means, for the applicable Interest Period for which such index is not available, the rate of return on a daily compounded interest investment calculated in accordance with the formula for SOFR Averages, and definitions required for such formula, published on the SOFR Administrator’s Website, initially located at https://www.newyorkfed.org/markets/treasury-repo-reference-rates-information. For the purposes of this provision, references in the SOFR Averages compounding formula and related definitions to “calculation period” shall be replaced with “Observation Period” and the words “that is, 30-, 90-, or 180- calendar days” shall be removed. If SOFR does not so appear for any day “i” in the Observation Period, SOFRi for such day “i” shall be SOFR published in respect of the first preceding U.S. Government Securities Business Day for which SOFR was published on the SOFR Administrator’s Website.

Absent willful misconduct, bad faith or manifest error, the calculation of the applicable Interest Rate for each Interest Period by the Calculation Agent, or in certain circumstances described below, by the Company (or its Designee) will be final and binding on the Company, the Trustee, and the Holders of the Securities of this series.

None of the Trustee, Paying Agent, Security Registrar or Calculation Agent shall be under any obligation (i) to monitor, determine or verify the unavailability or cessation of SOFR or the SOFR Index, or whether or when there has occurred, or to give notice to any other transaction party of the occurrence of, any Benchmark Transition Event or related Benchmark

In connection with the foregoing, each of the Trustee, Paying Agent and Registrar and Calculation Agent shall be entitled to conclusively rely on any determinations made by the Company (or its Designee) without independent investigation, and none will have any liability for actions taken at the direction of the Company in connection therewith.
None of the Trustee, Paying Agent, Security Registrar or Calculation Agent shall be liable for any inability, failure or delay on its part to perform any of its duties described in the Securities of this series, the Officer’s Certificate or the Indenture as a result of the unavailability of SOFR, the SOFR Index or other applicable Benchmark Replacement, including as a result of any failure, inability, delay, error or inaccuracy on the part of any other transaction party in providing any direction, instruction, notice or information contemplated by the Securities of this series, the Officer’s Certificate or the Indenture and reasonably required for the performance of such duties. In connection with any determinations made under the subsection “Effect of Benchmark Transition Event” below, none of the Trustee, Paying Agent, Registrar or Calculation Agent shall be responsible or liable for the actions or omissions of the Company (or its Designee), or for any failure or delay in the performance by the Company (or its Designee), nor shall any of the Trustee, Paying Agent, Registrar or Calculation Agent be under any obligation to oversee or monitor the performance of the Company (or its Designee).
Effect of Benchmark Transition Event.
Benchmark Replacement. If the Company (or its Designee) determines that a Benchmark Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred prior to the Reference Time in respect of any determination of the Benchmark on any date, the Benchmark Replacement will replace the then-current Benchmark for all purposes relating to the Securities of this series in respect of such determination on such date and all determinations on all subsequent dates.
Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes. In connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement, the Company (or its Designee) will have the right to make Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes from time to time.
Decisions and Determinations. Any determination, decision or election that may be made by the Company (or its Designee) pursuant to the benchmark replacement provisions described in this subsection “Effect of Benchmark Transition Event,” including any determination with respect to tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action or any selection, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error, will be made in the Company’s (or its Designee’s) sole discretion, and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Securities of this series, the Officer’s Certificate or the Indenture, shall become effective without consent from the holders of the Securities of this series or any other party.

The Benchmark Replacement Adjustment shall not include the Margin specified herein and such Margin shall be applied to the Benchmark Replacement to determine the interest payable on the Securities of this series.
Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes” means, with respect to any Benchmark Replacement, any technical, administrative or operational changes (including changes to the definitions or interpretations of “Interest Period,” the timing and frequency of determining rates and making payments of interest, the rounding of amounts or tenors, and other administrative matters) that the Company (or its Designee) decides may be appropriate to reflect the adoption of such Benchmark Replacement in a manner substantially consistent with market practice (or, if the Company (or its Designee) decides that adoption of any portion of such market practice is not administratively feasible or if the Company (or its Designee) determines that no market practice for use of the Benchmark Replacement exists, in such other manner as the Company (or its Designee) determines is reasonably necessary or practicable).

(2)in the case of clause (3) of the definition of “Benchmark Transition Event,” the date of the public statement or publication of information referenced therein.
For the avoidance of doubt, if the event giving rise to the Benchmark Replacement Date occurs on the same day as, but earlier than, the Reference Time in respect of any determination, the Benchmark Replacement Date will be deemed to have occurred prior to the Reference Time for such determination.
Benchmark Transition Event” means the occurrence of one or more of the following events with respect to the then-current Benchmark:
(1)a public statement or publication of information by or on behalf of the administrator of the Benchmark announcing that such administrator has ceased or will cease to provide the Benchmark, permanently or indefinitely, provided that, at the time of such statement or publication, there is no successor administrator that will continue to provide the Benchmark;
(2)a public statement or publication of information by the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of the Benchmark, the central bank for the currency of the Benchmark, an insolvency official with jurisdiction over the administrator for the Benchmark, a resolution authority with jurisdiction over the administrator for the Benchmark or a court or an entity with similar insolvency or resolution authority over the administrator for the Benchmark, which states that the administrator of the Benchmark has ceased or will cease to provide the Benchmark permanently or indefinitely, provided that, at the time of such statement or publication, there is no successor administrator that will continue to provide the Benchmark; or
(3)a public statement or publication of information by the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of the Benchmark announcing that the Benchmark is no longer representative.
