The 2050 Notes constitute a further issuance of, and will form a single series with, the 2.625% Notes due 2050, of which $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount was issued on September 4, 2020.

In connection with the Notes Offering, on September 30, 2020, we entered into a Terms Agreement in respect of the Notes (the “Terms Agreement”) with Barclays Capital Inc., BofA Securities, Inc. and Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which we agreed to issue and sell the Notes to the Underwriters.
