An early settlement may be made only in integral multiples of 20 Corporate Units or 20 Treasury Units; however, if the Treasury portfolio has


   replaced the RSNs as a component of the Corporate Units following a successful optional remarketing, holders of Corporate Units may settle early only in integral multiples of 16,000 Corporate Units.

Early Settlement Upon a Fundamental Change

   Subject to certain conditions described under “Description of the Purchase Contracts—Early Settlement Upon a Fundamental Change,” following a “fundamental change” (as defined in the preliminary prospectus supplement) that occurs prior to the 20th business day preceding the Purchase Contract Settlement Date, each holder of a purchase contract will have the right to accelerate and settle the purchase contract early on the fundamental change early settlement date (as defined in the preliminary prospectus supplement) at the settlement rate determined as if the applicable market value equaled the stock price (as defined in the preliminary prospectus supplement), plus an additional make-whole amount of shares (such additional make-whole amount of shares being hereafter referred to as the “make-whole shares”). This right is referred to as the “fundamental change early settlement right.” The number of make-whole shares per purchase contract applicable to a fundamental change early settlement will be determined by reference to the table below, based on the date on which the fundamental change occurs or becomes effective (the “effective date”) and the “stock price” (as defined in the preliminary prospectus supplement) for the fundamental change:

The stock prices set forth in the second row of the table above (i.e., the column headers) will be adjusted upon the occurrence of certain events requiring anti-dilution adjustments to the fixed settlement rates in a manner inversely proportional to the adjustments to the fixed settlement rates, as described in the preliminary prospectus supplement.

 

The exact stock price and effective date applicable to a fundamental change may not be set forth on the table, in which case:

 

   

if the stock price is between two stock prices on the table or the effective date is between two effective dates on the table, the amount of make-whole shares will be determined by straight line interpolation between the make-whole share amounts set forth for the higher and lower stock prices and the earlier and later two effective dates based on a 365-day year, as applicable;


   

if the stock price is in excess of $400.00 per share (subject to adjustment in the same manner as the stock prices set forth in the second row of the table, as described above), then the make-whole share amount will be zero; and

 

   

if the stock price is less than $25.00 per share (subject to adjustment in the same manner as the stock prices set forth in the second row of the table, as described above) (the “minimum stock price”), then the make-whole share amount will be determined as if the stock price equaled the minimum stock price, using straight line interpolation, as described above in the first bullet, if the effective date is between two effective dates on the table.

   Unless the Treasury portfolio has replaced the RSNs as a component of the Corporate Units as a result of a successful optional remarketing, holders of Corporate Units may exercise the fundamental change early settlement right only in integral multiples of 20 Corporate Units. If the Treasury portfolio has replaced the RSNs as a component of Corporate Units, holders of the Corporate Units may exercise the fundamental change early settlement right only in integral multiples of 16,000 Corporate Units. A holder of Treasury Units may exercise the fundamental change early settlement right only in integral multiples of 20 Treasury Units.
