The Notes bear interest at a rate of 3.125% per annum accruing from June 10, 2021. Interest is payable semiannually in arrears on June 10 and December 10 of each year, commencing on December 10, 2021. The Notes will mature on June 10, 2031 unless earlier redeemed or repurchased. The Notes are unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of the Issuer. The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed (the “Guarantees”), jointly and severally, by each of the Guarantors. The Guarantees are unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of the Guarantors. All or a portion of the Notes may be redeemed at the Issuer’s option in whole, at any time, or in part, from time to time, prior to their stated maturity, at the make-whole redemption price set forth in the Notes provided, however, that if the Issuer redeems any Notes on or after March 10, 2031 (the date falling three months prior to their stated maturity), the redemption price for the Notes will be equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes redeemed, in each case, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding the date of redemption. If a change of control repurchase event occurs, the Notes are subject to repurchase by the Issuer at a repurchase price in cash equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes repurchased plus any accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the date of repurchase.

The Indenture includes covenants, including limitations on the Issuer’s and the Guarantors’ ability to, subject to exceptions, incur indebtedness secured by liens on voting stock or profit participating equity interests of their subsidiaries or merge, consolidate or sell, transfer or lease assets. The Indenture also provides for customary events of default and further provides that the Trustee or the holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Notes may declare the Notes immediately due and payable upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any event of default after expiration of any applicable grace period. In the case of specified events of bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership or reorganization, the principal amount of the Notes and any accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes automatically will become due and payable.
