(collectively, the Guarantors) and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee (the Trustee).
The Notes bear interest at a rate of 4.872% per annum accruing from February 7, 2019. Interest is payable semiannually in arrears on February 15 and August 15 of each year, commencing on August 15, 2019. The Notes will mature on February 15, 2029 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 Issuers option in whole, at any time, or in part, from time to time, prior to November 15, 2028, at the make-whole redemption price set forth in the Notes. On or after November 15, 2028, the Notes may be redeemed at the Issuers option, in whole, at any time, or in part, from time to time, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed.
