To facilitate subsequent transfers, all notes deposited by direct participants with DTC are registered
in the name of DTCs nominee, Cede & Co., or such other name as may be requested by an authorized representative of DTC. The deposit of notes with DTC and their registration in the name of Cede & Co. do not effect any change
in beneficial ownership. DTC has no knowledge of the actual beneficial owners of the notes. DTCs records reflect only the identity of the direct participants to whose accounts such notes are credited, which may or may not be the beneficial
owners. The participants will remain responsible for keeping account of their holdings on behalf of their customers.
Conveyance of notices and
other communications by DTC to direct participants, by direct participants to indirect participants and by direct participants and indirect participants to beneficial owners will be governed by arrangements among them, subject to any statutory or
regulatory requirements as may be in effect from time to time.
Euroclear and Clearstream. If the
depositary for a global debt security is DTC, you may hold interests in the global debt security through Clearstream Banking, société anonyme, which we refer to as Clearstream, or Euroclear Bank SA/ NV, as operator of the
Euroclear System, which we refer to as Euroclear, in each case, as a participant in DTC. Euroclear and Clearstream will hold interests, in each case, on behalf of their participants through customers securities accounts in the
names of Euroclear and Clearstream on the books of their respective depositaries, which in turn will hold such interests in customers securities in the depositaries names on DTCs books. Payments, deliveries, transfers, exchanges,
notices and other matters relating to the debt securities made through Euroclear or Clearstream must comply with the rules and procedures of those systems. Those systems could change their rules and procedures at any time. We have no control over
those systems or their participants, and we take no responsibility for their activities. Transactions between participants in Euroclear or Clearstream, on one hand, and other participants in DTC, on the other hand, would also be subject to
DTCs rules and procedures. Investors will be able to make and receive through Euroclear and Clearstream payments, deliveries, transfers, exchanges, notices and other transactions involving any securities held through those systems only on days
when those systems are open for business. Those systems may not be open for business on days when banks, brokers and other institutions are open for business in the United States. In addition, because of time-zone differences, U.S. investors who
hold their interests in the debt securities through these systems and wish on a particular day, to transfer their interests, or to receive or make a payment or delivery or exercise any other right with respect to their interests, may find that the
transaction will not be effected until the next business day in Luxembourg or Brussels, as applicable. Thus, investors who wish to exercise rights that expire on a particular day may need to act before the expiration date. In addition, investors who
hold their interests through both DTC and Euroclear or Clearstream may need to make special arrangements to finance any purchase or sales of their interests between the U.S. and European clearing systems, and those transactions may settle later than
transactions within one clearing system. We have obtained the foregoing information concerning Euroclear and Clearstream from sources we believe to be reliable, but we take no responsibility for the accuracy of this information.
Book-Entry Format. Under the book-entry format, the trustee will pay interest or principal payments to
Cede & Co., as nominee of DTC. DTC will forward the payment to the direct participants, who will then forward the payment to the indirect participants or to you as the beneficial owner. You may experience some delay in receiving your
payments under this system. Neither we, the trustee under the indenture nor any paying agent has any direct responsibility or liability for the payment of principal or interest on the notes to owners of beneficial interests in the notes.
