Optional Redemption:

The Issuer may redeem the Notes at its option, (a) in whole, but not in part, on October 24, 2050, or (b) in whole at any time or in part from time to time, on or after September 22, 2051 and prior to the Maturity Date, in each case, upon at least 5 business days’ but not more than 60 calendar days’ prior written notice to holders of the Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon to, but excluding, the redemption date.

In addition, the Issuer may redeem the Notes, at its option, in whole at any time or in part from time to time, on or after April 21, 2021 (or, if additional Notes are issued after October 21, 2020, beginning six months after the issue date of such additional Notes), and prior to October 24, 2050, upon at least 5 business days’ but not more than 60 calendar days’ prior written notice to the holders of the Notes, at a “make-whole” redemption price equal to the greater of:

(i) 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed; or

(ii) as determined by the quotation agent described below, the sum of the present values of (a) the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, as if paid on October 24, 2050 and (b) the scheduled payments of interest on the Notes to be redeemed, that would have been payable from the redemption date to October 24, 2050, in each case 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 plus 20 basis points, minus interest (on the Notes to be redeemed) accrued to, but excluding, the redemption date,

plus, in either case of (i) or (ii) above, accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed to, but excluding, the applicable redemption date.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, any interest on Notes being redeemed that is due and payable on an Interest Payment Date falling on or prior to a redemption date for such Notes will be payable on such Interest Payment Date to holders of such Notes being redeemed as of the close of business on the relevant record date according to the terms of the Notes and the Senior Indenture.

treasury rate” means, with respect to any redemption date, the rate per annum equal to: (1) the yield, under the heading that represents the average for the week immediately prior to the calculation date, appearing in the most recently published statistical release appearing on the website of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or in another recognized electronic source, in each case, as determined by the quotation agent in its sole discretion, and that establishes yields on actively traded U.S. Treasury securities adjusted to constant maturity, for the maturity corresponding to the applicable comparable treasury issue; provided that, if no maturity is within three months before or after October 24, 2050, yields for the two published maturities most closely corresponding to the applicable comparable treasury issue will be determined and the treasury rate will be interpolated or extrapolated from those yields on a straight-line basis, rounding to the nearest month; or (2) if such release (or any successor release) is not published during the week immediately prior to the calculation date or does not contain such yields, the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity or interpolated maturity (on a day-count basis) of the comparable treasury issue, calculated using a price for the applicable comparable treasury issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the related comparable treasury price for such redemption date.

The treasury rate will be calculated by the quotation agent on the third business day preceding the applicable redemption date of the Notes.

In determining the treasury rate, the below terms will have the following meaning:

comparable treasury issue” means, with respect to any redemption date, the U.S. Treasury security or securities selected by the quotation agent as having an actual or interpolated (on a day-count basis) maturity comparable to the remaining term of the Notes to be redeemed, as if such Notes matured on October 24, 2050, that would be utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities of comparable maturity to the remaining term of such Notes as if such Notes matured on October 24, 2050.

comparable treasury price” means, with respect to any redemption date, (1) the average of the reference treasury dealer quotations for such redemption date, after excluding the highest and lowest reference treasury dealer quotations, provided that the quotation agent obtains five reference treasury dealer quotations, or (2) if the quotation agent obtains fewer than five such reference treasury dealer quotations, the average of all such quotations.

quotation agent” means BofA Securities, Inc., or its successor, or, if that firm is unwilling or unable to select the comparable treasury issue, an investment bank of national standing appointed by the Issuer.

reference treasury dealer” means (1) BofA Securities, Inc., or its successor, unless that firm ceases to be a primary U.S. government securities dealer in New York City (referred to in this term sheet as a “primary treasury dealer”), in which case the Issuer will substitute another primary treasury dealer and (2) four other primary treasury dealer(s) that the Issuer may select.

reference treasury dealer quotations” means, with respect to each reference treasury dealer and any redemption date, the average, as determined by the quotation agent, of the bid and asked prices for the applicable comparable treasury issue (expressed in each case as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in writing to the quotation agent by such reference treasury dealer at 3:30 p.m., New York City time, on the third business day preceding such redemption date.

Unless the Issuer defaults on payment of the applicable redemption price, interest will cease to accrue on the Notes or portions thereof called for redemption on the applicable redemption date. If fewer than all of the Notes are to be redeemed, for so long as such notes are in book-entry only form, such Notes to be redeemed will be selected in accordance with the procedures of The Depository Trust Company.

Because BofA Securities, Inc. is, and any successor to BofA Securities, Inc. will be, an affiliate of the Issuer, the economic interests of BofA Securities, Inc. or its successor may be adverse to your interests as a holder of the Notes subject to the Issuer’s redemption, including with respect to certain determinations and judgments it must make as quotation agent in the event that the Issuer redeems the Notes before their maturity pursuant to the “make-whole” optional redemption described above.
