The registration statement as amended to the date of this agreement, including the information (if any) deemed to be part of the registration statement at the time of effectiveness pursuant to Rule 430A or Rule 430B under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), is hereinafter referred to as the “Registration Statement,” and the related prospectus covering the Shelf Securities dated November 17, 2014 in the form first used to confirm sales of the Securities (or in the form first made available to the Underwriters by the Tyco Parties to meet requests of purchasers pursuant to Rule 173 under the Securities Act) is hereinafter referred to as the “Basic Prospectus.” The Basic Prospectus, as supplemented by the prospectus supplement specifically relating to the Securities in the form first used to confirm sales of the Securities (or in the form first made available to the Underwriters by the Tyco Parties to meet requests of purchasers pursuant to Rule 173 under the Securities Act) is hereinafter referred to as the “Prospectus,” and the term “preliminary prospectus” means any preliminary form of the Prospectus.

  (f) If, during such period after the first date of the public offering of the Securities as in the opinion of counsel for the Underwriters the Prospectus (or in lieu thereof the notice referred to in Rule 173(a) of the Securities Act) is required by law to be delivered in connection with sales by an Underwriter or dealer, any event shall occur or condition exist as a result of which it is necessary to amend or supplement the Prospectus in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances when the Prospectus (or in lieu thereof the notice referred to in Rule 173(a) of the Securities Act) is delivered to a purchaser, not misleading, or if, in the opinion of counsel for the Underwriters, it is necessary to amend or supplement the Prospectus to comply with applicable law, the Tyco Parties forthwith will prepare, file with the Commission and furnish, at their own expense, to the Underwriters and to the dealers (whose names and addresses you will furnish to the Tyco Parties) to which Securities may have been sold by you on behalf of the Underwriters and to any other dealers upon request, either amendments or supplements to the Prospectus so that the statements in the Prospectus as so amended or supplemented will not, in the light of the circumstances when the Prospectus (or in lieu thereof the notice referred to in Rule 173(a) of the Securities Act) is delivered to a purchaser, be misleading or so that the Prospectus, as amended or supplemented, will comply with applicable law.

 

  (g) Promptly from time to time as you may reasonably request the Tyco Parties will endeavor to qualify the Securities for offer and sale under the securities or Blue Sky laws of such jurisdictions as you shall reasonably request and to comply with such laws so as to permit the continuance of sales and dealings therein in such jurisdictions for as long as may be necessary to complete the distribution of the Securities and the Guarantees; provided that none of the Tyco Parties will be required to qualify as a foreign corporation or to file a general consent to service of process in any such state.

 

  (h) The Tyco Parties will cooperate with the Representatives in arranging for the Securities to be eligible for clearance and settlement through Clearstream and Euroclear.

 

  (i) The Tyco Parties will use their best efforts to list, subject to notice of issuance if applicable, the Securities on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) for trading on such exchange as promptly as practicable after the date hereof.

 

  (j)

The Company hereby authorizes Citigroup Global Markets Limited in its role as stabilizing manager (the “Stabilizing Manager”) to make adequate public disclosure regarding stabilization of the information required in relation to such stabilization by Commission Regulation (EC) 2273/2003 of the Commission of the European Communities. The Stabilizing Manager for its own account may, to the extent permitted by applicable laws and directives, over-allot and effect transactions with a view to supporting the market price of the Securities at a level higher than that which might otherwise prevail, but in doing so the Stabilizing Manager shall act as principal and not as agent of the Company and any loss resulting from overallotment and stabilization shall be borne, and any profit arising therefrom shall be beneficially retained, by the


  Stabilizing Manager. However, there is no assurance that the Stabilizing Manager (or persons acting on behalf of the Stabilizing Manager) will undertake any stabilization action. Nothing contained in this paragraph shall be construed so as to require the Company to issue in excess of the aggregate principal amount of Securities specified in Schedule I hereto. Such stabilization, if commenced, may be discontinued at any time and shall be conducted by the Stabilizing Manager in accordance with all applicable laws and directives.

 

  (k)

  (l) The Tyco Parties will prepare final term sheets relating to the offering of the Securities, containing only information that describes the final terms of the Securities or the offering in a form consented to by the Underwriters, and will file such final term sheets within the period required by Rule 433(d)(5)(ii) under the Securities Act following the date the final terms have been established for the offering of the Securities.

 

  (m) During the period beginning from the date hereof and continuing until the business day after the Time of Delivery, none of the Tyco Parties will offer, sell, contract to sell, pledge, grant any option, make any short sale or otherwise dispose of, except as provided hereunder, any securities of any of the Tyco Parties that are substantially similar to the Securities and the Guarantees without your prior written consent.

 

7. Covenant of the Underwriters. Each Underwriter severally covenants with the Tyco Parties not to take any action that would result in any of the Tyco Parties being required to file with the Commission under Rule 433(d) a free writing prospectus prepared by or on behalf of such Underwriter that otherwise would not be required to be filed by the Tyco Parties thereunder, but for the action of the Underwriter.

 

8.

Additional Covenants. Each of the Tyco Parties, jointly and severally, covenants and agrees with the several Underwriters that, unless each has or shall have obtained the prior written consent of the Underwriters, and each Underwriter, severally and not jointly, agrees with the Tyco Parties that, unless it has or shall have obtained, as the case may be, the prior written consent of the Tyco Parties, it has not made and will not make any offer relating to the Securities that would constitute a free writing prospectus required to be filed by the Tyco Parties with the Commission or retained by the Tyco Parties under Rule 433, other than a free writing prospectus containing the information contained in the final term sheets prepared and filed pursuant to Section 6(l) hereto; provided that the prior written consent of the parties hereto shall be deemed to have been given in respect of the free writing prospectuses included in Schedule II hereto and any electronic road show. The Company agrees that it has complied and


will comply, as the case may be, with the requirements of Rules 164 and 433 applicable to any such free writing prospectus consented to pursuant to this Section 8, including in respect of timely filing with the Commission, legending and record keeping.

 

9. Indemnification and Contribution.

 

  (a) The Tyco Parties, jointly and severally, agree to indemnify and hold harmless each Underwriter, each person, if any, who controls any Underwriter within the meaning of either Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act, each affiliate of any Underwriter within the meaning of Rule 405 under the Securities Act, each broker dealer affiliate of any Underwriter and each of their respective officers and directors from and against any and all losses, claims, damages and liabilities, joint or several, to which such Underwriter may become subject, under the Securities Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in the Registration Statement or any amendment thereof, any preliminary prospectus, the Time of Sale Prospectus, any issuer free writing prospectus as defined in Rule 433(h) under the Securities Act, any Company information that the Company has filed, or is required to file, pursuant to Rule 433(d) under the Securities Act, including the final term sheets prepared and filed pursuant to Section 6(l), or the Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto, or caused by any omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, and will reimburse each Underwriter for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by such Underwriter in connection with investigating or defending any such action or claim as such expenses are incurred; provided, however, that the Tyco Parties shall not be liable in any such case to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage or liability arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in the Registration Statement or any amendment thereof, any preliminary prospectus, the Time of Sale Prospectus, any issuer free writing prospectus as defined in Rule 433(h) under the Securities Act, any Company information that the Company has filed, or is required to file, pursuant to Rule 433(d) under the Securities Act, including the final term sheets prepared and filed pursuant to Section 6(l), or the Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto, in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Tyco Parties by any Underwriter expressly for use therein.

 

  (b)

Each Underwriter, severally and not jointly, agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Tyco Parties, their respective directors and officers and each person, if any, who controls the Tyco Parties within the meaning of either Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act from and against any and all losses, claims, damages and liabilities, to which the Tyco Parties may become subject, under the Securities Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement


of a material fact contained in the Registration Statement or any amendment thereof, any preliminary prospectus, the Time of Sale Prospectus, any issuer free writing prospectus as defined in Rule 433(h) under the Securities Act, any Company information that the Company has filed, or is required to file, pursuant to Rule 433(d) under the Securities Act, including the final term sheets prepared and filed pursuant to Section 6(l), or the Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto, or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact or necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission was made in the Registration Statement or any amendment thereof, any preliminary prospectus, the Time of Sale Prospectus, any issuer free writing prospectus as defined in Rule 433(h) under the Securities Act, any Company information that the Company has filed, or is required to file, pursuant to Rule 433(d) under the Securities Act or the Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto, in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Tyco Parties by such Underwriter expressly for use therein.

 

  (c)

In case any proceeding (including any governmental investigation) shall be instituted involving any person in respect of which indemnity may be sought pursuant to subsections (a) or (b) above, such person (the “indemnified party”) shall promptly notify the person against whom such indemnity may be sought (the “indemnifying party”) in writing and the indemnifying party, upon request of the indemnified party, shall retain counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party to represent the indemnified party and any others the indemnifying party may designate in such proceeding and shall pay the reasonable fees and disbursements of such counsel related to such proceeding. In any such proceeding, any indemnified party shall have the right to retain its own counsel, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such indemnified party unless (i) the indemnifying party and the indemnified party shall have mutually agreed to the retention of such counsel or (ii) the named parties to any such proceeding (including any impleaded parties) include both the indemnifying party and the indemnified party and representation of both parties by the same counsel would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between them. It is understood that the indemnifying party shall not, in respect of the legal expenses of any indemnified party in connection with any proceeding or related proceedings in the same jurisdiction, be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one separate firm (in addition to any local counsel) for all such indemnified parties and that all such fees and expenses shall be reimbursed as they are incurred. Such firm shall be designated in writing by (i) the relevant Underwriter(s), in the case of the parties indemnified pursuant to Section 9(a) and (ii) by Tyco, in the case of parties indemnified pursuant to Section 9(b). The indemnifying party shall not be liable for any settlement of any proceeding effected without its written consent, but if settled with such consent or if there be a final judgment for the plaintiff, the indemnifying party agrees to indemnify the indemnified party from and against any loss or liability by reason of such


  settlement or judgment. No indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the indemnified party, effect any settlement of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which any indemnified party is or could have been a party and indemnity could have been sought hereunder by such indemnified party, unless such settlement (x) includes an unconditional release of such indemnified party from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such proceeding and (y) does not include any statement as to any admission of fault, culpability or failure to act by or on behalf of any indemnified person.

 

  (d) To the extent the indemnification provided for in Section 9(a) or 9(b) is unavailable to an indemnified party or insufficient in respect of any losses, claims, damages or liabilities referred to therein, then each indemnifying party under such paragraph, in lieu of indemnifying such indemnified party thereunder, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (i) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Tyco Parties on the one hand and the Underwriters on the other hand from the offering of the Securities or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause (i) above is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to in clause (i) above but also the relative fault of the Tyco Parties on the one hand and of the Underwriters on the other hand in connection with the statements or omissions that resulted in such losses, claims, damages or liabilities, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative benefits received by the Tyco Parties on the one hand and the Underwriters on the other hand in connection with the offering of the Securities shall be deemed to be in the same respective proportions as the net proceeds from the offering of the Securities (before deducting expenses) received by the Tyco Parties and the total discounts and commissions received by the Underwriters, in each case as set forth herein, bear to the aggregate offering price of the Securities. The relative fault of the Tyco Parties on the one hand and of the Underwriters on the other hand shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the Tyco Parties on the one hand or by the Underwriters on the other and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission. The Underwriters’ respective obligations to contribute pursuant to this Section are several in proportion to the respective principal amount of Securities they have purchased hereunder, and not joint.

 

  (e)

The Tyco Parties and the Underwriters agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to subsection (d) were determined by pro rata allocation (even if the Underwriters were treated as one entity for such purpose) or by any other method of allocation that does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to above in subsection (d). The amount paid or payable by an indemnified party as a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabilities referred to above in subsection (d) shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth above, any legal or other expenses


  reasonably incurred by such indemnified party in connection with investigating or defending any such action or claim. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (d), no Underwriter shall be required to contribute any amount in excess of the amount by which the total price at which the Securities purchased by it and distributed to investors were offered to investors exceeds the amount of any damages that such Underwriter has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission. No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. The remedies provided for in this Section 9 are not exclusive and shall not limit any rights or remedies which may otherwise be available to any indemnified party at law or in equity.

 

10. Termination. The Underwriters may terminate this Agreement by written notice given to Tyco, if after the execution and delivery of this Agreement and prior to the Time of Delivery (i) trading generally shall have been suspended or materially limited on, or by, as the case may be, the NYSE, (ii) trading of any securities of Tyco shall have been suspended on the NYSE, (iii) a material disruption in securities settlement, payment or clearance services in the United States or in Europe shall have occurred, (iv) any moratorium on commercial banking activities shall have been declared by Federal, New York State or European Union authorities or (v) there shall have occurred any outbreak or escalation of hostilities, or any change in financial markets or any calamity or crisis that, in your judgment, is material and adverse and which, singly or together with any other event specified in this clause (v), makes it, in your judgment, impracticable or inadvisable to proceed with the offer, sale or delivery of the Securities on the terms and in the manner contemplated in the Time of Sale Prospectus (exclusive of any amendment or supplement thereto).

 

11. Effectiveness; Defaulting Underwriters.

 

  (a)

If, at the Time of Delivery, any one or more of the Underwriters shall fail or refuse to purchase Securities that it or they have agreed to purchase hereunder at such time, and the aggregate principal amount of Securities which such defaulting Underwriter or Underwriters agreed but failed or refused to purchase is not more than one-tenth of the aggregate principal amount of Securities to be purchased at such time, the other Underwriters shall be obligated severally in the proportions that the principal amount of Securities set forth opposite their respective names in Schedule I bears to the aggregate principal amount of Securities set forth opposite the names of all such non-defaulting Underwriters, or in such other proportions as the Underwriters may specify, to purchase the Securities which such defaulting Underwriter or Underwriters agreed but failed or refused to purchase at such time; provided that in no event shall the principal amount of Securities that any Underwriter has agreed to purchase pursuant to this Agreement be increased pursuant to this Section by an amount in excess of one-ninth of such principal amount of Securities without the written consent of such Underwriter. If, at the Time of Delivery any Underwriter or Underwriters shall fail or refuse to purchase Securities which it or they have agreed to purchase hereunder at such time and the aggregate


  principal amount of Securities with respect to which such default occurs is more than one-tenth of the aggregate principal amount of Securities to be purchased at such time, and arrangements satisfactory to the Underwriters and Tyco for the purchase of such Securities are not made within 36 hours after such default, this Agreement shall terminate without liability on the part of any non-defaulting Underwriter or of the Tyco Parties. In any such case the Underwriters and Tyco shall have the right to postpone the Time of Delivery, but in no event for longer than seven days, in order that the required changes, if any, in the Prospectus or in any other documents or arrangements may be effected. Any action taken under this paragraph shall not relieve any defaulting Underwriter from liability in respect of any default of such Underwriter under this Agreement.

 

  (b) If this Agreement is terminated pursuant to Section 10 (other than clause (ii) thereof), none of the Tyco Parties shall be under any liability to any Underwriter pursuant to this Agreement except as provided in Section 6(k) and Section 9 hereof; but if for any other reason the sale of the Securities provided for herein is not consummated, including because any condition to the obligations of the Underwriters set forth in Section 5 is not satisfied, this Agreement is terminated pursuant to Section 10(ii) or because of any refusal, inability or failure on the part of any of the Tyco Parties to perform any agreement herein or comply with any provision hereof, the Tyco Parties agree, jointly and severally, to reimburse the Underwriters through the Representatives on demand for all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses (including fees and disbursements of counsel) that shall have been incurred by the Underwriters in connection with the proposed purchase and sale of the Securities, and the Tyco Parties shall be under no further liability except as provided in Section 6(k) and Section 9 hereof.

 

12. Submission to Jurisdiction; Appointment of Agent for Service.

 

  (a) Each of the Tyco Parties irrevocably submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any New York State or United States Federal court sitting in The City of New York over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement. Each of the Tyco Parties irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any such suit, action or proceeding brought in such a court and any claim that any such suit, action or proceeding brought in such a court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. To the extent that any of the Tyco Parties has or hereafter may acquire any immunity (on the grounds of sovereignty or otherwise) from the jurisdiction of any court or from any legal process with respect to itself or its property, each of the Tyco Parties irrevocably waives, to the full extent permitted by applicable law, such immunity in respect of any such suit, action or proceeding.


  (b) Each of the Tyco Parties hereby irrevocably appoints CT Corporation System, with offices at 111 Eighth Avenue, New York, New York 10011, as its agent for service of process in any suit, action or proceeding described in the preceding paragraph and agrees that service of process in any such suit, action or proceeding may be made upon it at the office of such agent. Each of the Tyco Parties waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any other requirements of or objections to personal jurisdiction with respect thereto. Each of the Tyco Parties represents and warrants that such agent has agreed to act as its agent for service of process, and each of the Tyco Parties agrees to take any and all action, including the filing of any and all documents and instruments, that may be necessary to continue such appointment in full force and effect.

 

13. Judgment Currency. If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder into any currency other than United States dollars, the parties hereto agree, to the fullest extent permitted by law, that the rate of exchange used shall be the rate at which in accordance with normal banking procedures the Underwriters could purchase United States dollars with such other currency in The City of New York on the business day preceding that on which final judgment is given. The obligation of the Tyco Parties with respect to any sum due from any of them to any Underwriter or any person controlling any Underwriter shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency other than United States dollars, not be discharged until the first business day following receipt by such Underwriter or controlling person of such Underwriter of any sum in such other currency, and only to the extent that such Underwriter or controlling person of such Underwriter may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase United States dollars with such other currency. If the United States dollars so purchased are less than the sum originally due to such Underwriter or controlling person of such Underwriter hereunder, the Tyco Parties jointly and severally agree, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify such Underwriter or controlling person of such Underwriter against such loss. If the United States dollars so purchased are greater than the sum originally due to such Underwriter or controlling person of such Underwriter hereunder, such Underwriter or controlling person of such Underwriter agrees to pay to Tyco an amount equal to the excess of the dollars so purchased over the sum originally due to such Underwriter or controlling person of such Underwriter hereunder.

 

14. Selling Restrictions. Each Underwriter has represented and agreed that it: (i) it has only communicated or caused to be communicated and will only communicate or cause to be communicated an invitation or inducement to engage in investment activity (within the meaning of Section 21 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (the “FSMA”) received by it in connection with the issue or sale of the Securities in circumstances in which Section 21(1) of the FSMA does not apply to the Company or the Guarantors; and (ii) it has complied and will comply with all applicable provisions of the FSMA with respect to anything done by it in relation to the Securities in, from or otherwise involving the United Kingdom.

 

15.

Survival. The respective indemnities, agreements, representations, warranties and other statements of the Tyco Parties and the several Underwriters, as set forth in this Agreement or made by or on behalf of them, respectively, pursuant to this Agreement, shall remain in full force and


  effect, regardless of any investigation (or any statement as to the results thereof) made by or on behalf of any Underwriter or any controlling person of any Underwriter, or any of the Tyco Parties, or any officer or director or controlling person of the Tyco Parties, and shall survive delivery of and payment for the Securities.
