The Agents expect to deliver the Notes in book-entry form only through the facilities of The Depository Trust Company against payment in New York, New York on or about the third business day following the date of this pricing supplement, or “T+3”. Trades of securities in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days, referred to as “T+2”, unless the parties to a trade agree otherwise. Accordingly, by virtue of the fact that the initial delivery of the Notes will not be made on a T+2 basis, investors who wish to trade the Notes more than two business days before the Original Issue Date will be required to specify an alternative settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement.
