We expect that delivery of the 2029 Senior Notes will be made to investors on or about September 17, 2019, which will be the third business day following the date of this pricing term sheet (such settlement being referred to as “T+3”). Under Rule 15c6-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, trades in the secondary market are required to settle in two business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade 2029 Senior Notes on the date of this pricing term sheet will be required, by virtue of the fact that the 2029 Senior Notes initially settle in T+3, to specify an alternate settlement arrangement at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. Purchasers of the 2029 Senior Notes who wish to trade the 2029 Senior Notes prior to the date of delivery should consult their advisors.

This pricing term sheet supplements the preliminary prospectus supplement, dated September 12, 2019, and the related prospectus, dated February 23, 2018; capitalized terms used in this pricing term sheet, but otherwise not defined herein, shall have the meanings assigned to them in the preliminary prospectus supplement and the related prospectus.
