|Concurrent Offering:|| |
$2,750,000,000 4.330% Fixed/Floating Rate Senior Notes, due March 2050
The settlement of the Notes is not contingent on the settlement of the concurrent offering.
The Issuer may redeem the Notes at its option, (a) in whole, but not in part, on March 15, 2024, or (b) in whole at any time or in part from time to time, on or after February 12, 2025 and prior to Maturity Date, in each case upon at least 10 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 September 15, 2019 (or, if additional Notes are issued after March 15, 2019, beginning six months after the issue date of such additional Notes), and prior to March 15, 2024, upon at least 10 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 the scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Notes to be redeemed, that would have been payable from the redemption date to March 15, 2024, not including interest accrued to, but excluding, 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 plus 20 basis points,
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 March 15, 2024, 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 March 15, 2024, 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 March 15, 2024.
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 Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, BofA Securities, Inc., or, their respective successors, as selected by the Issuer, 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) Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, BofA Securities, Inc., or, their respective successors, as selected by the Issuer, 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 Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and BofA Securities are, and any successor to Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated or BofA Securities, Inc. will be, an affiliate of the Issuer, the economic interests of Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, BofA Securities, Inc. or the relevant successor to such firm may be adverse to your interests as a holder of the Notes subject to the Issuers 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.|
