Concurrent Debt Tender Offers:

  On November 10, 2020, in connection with its previously announced cash tender offers (the “Tender Offers”) for the Notes as set forth below, the Issuer announced that it has increased the aggregate principal amount of each series of Notes that the Issuer intends to purchase in the Tender Offers from the previously announced amounts to (i) up to an aggregate principal amount of $175 million of its 3.700% Senior Notes due 2027 (the “3.700% Notes”) and (ii) up to an aggregate principal amount of $325 million of its 4.700% Senior Notes due 2047 (the “4.700% Notes” and, together with the 3.700% Notes, the “Notes”).

* Under Rule 15c6-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market are required to settle in two business days (“T+2”), unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade Depositary Shares prior to the second business day before delivery of the Depositary Shares hereunder will generally be required, by virtue of the fact that the Depositary Shares initially settle on the seventh business day following the Pricing Date (“T+7”), to specify an alternate settlement arrangement at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. Purchasers of the Depositary Shares who wish to trade the Depositary Shares prior to their date of delivery hereunder should consult their advisors.

** The rating of the Depositary Shares should be evaluated independently from similar ratings of other securities. A securities rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold securities and may be subject to review, revision, suspension, reduction or withdrawal at any time by the assigning rating agency.
