* 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 Debentures prior to the delivery of the Debentures hereunder will generally be required, by virtue of the fact that the Debentures initially settle on the fifth business day following the Pricing Date (“T+5”), to specify an alternate settlement arrangement at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. Purchasers of the Debentures who wish to trade the Debentures prior to their date of delivery hereunder should consult their advisors.

** The rating of the Debentures 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.
