Redemption:
redeemable at any time, in whole or from time to time in part, at our option at a redemption price equal to the
greater of
·
100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed, and

·
as determined by the quotation agent (as defined below), the sum of the present values of the remaining

scheduled payments of principal of and interest on the notes to be redeemed (not including any interest
accrued to the redemption date) discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis assuming a
360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months at the treasury rate (defined below) plus, in the case of
the 1.375% Notes due 2018, 7 basis points, in the case of the 2.000% Notes due 2020, 10 basis points,
or in the case of the 3.000% Notes due 2025, 15 basis points

plus, in the case of both clauses above, accrued and unpaid interest on the notes to be redeemed to the redemption
date.

"Treasury rate" means, with respect to any redemption date, the annual rate equal to the semi-annual equivalent
yield to maturity of the comparable treasury issue, assuming a price of the comparable treasury issue (expressed as
a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the comparable treasury price for that redemption date.

"Comparable treasury issue" means the United States Treasury security selected by the quotation agent as
having a maturity comparable to the remaining term of notes to be redeemed that would be utilized, at the time of
a selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities
of comparable maturity to the remaining term of the notes to be redeemed.

"Comparable treasury price" means, with respect to any redemption date, (i) the average of at least three
reference treasury dealer quotations for that redemption date, after excluding the highest and lowest of five or
more reference treasury dealer quotations, or (ii) if the Trustee obtains fewer than five reference dealer quotations,
the average of all reference treasury dealer quotations so obtained.

cease to be a primary U.S. Government securities dealer in New York City (a "primary treasury dealer"), the
Company will

substitute another primary treasury dealer; and (ii) any other primary treasury dealer(s) selected by the Company.

"Reference treasury dealer quotations" means, with respect to each reference treasury dealer and any
redemption date, the average, as determined by the Company, of the bid and asked prices for the comparable
treasury issue (expressed in each case as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in writing to the Trustee by
the reference treasury dealer at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the third business day preceding the redemption
date.

In the case of a partial redemption of the 1.375% Notes due 2018, the 2.000% Notes due 2020 or the 3.000%
Notes due 2025, selection of the notes for redemption will be made pro rata, if commercially practicable in
accordance with the procedures of DTC or the relevant depositary, and if not, then by lot or such other method as
required in accordance with the procedures of DTC or the relevant depositary. The notes will be redeemed in
denominations of $2,000 and integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof. Notice of any redemption will be
mailed by first class mail at least 30 days but not more than 60 days before the redemption date to each holder of
the notes to be redeemed at its registered address. If any notes are to be redeemed in part only, the notice of
redemption that relates to such notes will state the portion of such notes to be redeemed. New notes in principal
amounts of at least $2,000 equal to the unredeemed portion of the notes will be issued in the name of the holder of
the notes upon surrender for cancellation of the original notes. Unless the Company defaults in payment of the
redemption price, on and after the redemption date, interest will cease to accrue on the notes or the portions of the
notes called for redemption.

Use of Proceeds:
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the notes for general corporate purposes.
