The Issuer expects that delivery of the Depositary Shares will be made to investors on or about September 19, 2019 which will be the third business day following the date of this pricing term sheet (such settlement being referred to as “T+3”). Under Rule 15c6-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade the Depositary Shares prior to the delivery of the Depositary Shares hereunder will be required, by virtue of the fact that the Depositary Shares initially will settle T+3, to specify an alternate settlement cycle 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 should consult their own advisor.

A securities rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold securities and may be subject to revision or withdrawal at any time. The rating of the Depositary Shares should be evaluated independently of any other security rating.
