Note: A securities rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold securities and may be subject to revision, suspension or withdrawal at any time. Each credit rating should be evaluated independently of any other credit rating.

** It is expected that delivery of the Depositary Shares will be made against payment therefor on or about November 14, 2019, which will be the fifth business day after the date of the prospectus supplement. Under Rule 15c6-1 of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days, unless the parties to a trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade the Depositary Shares on the date of the prospectus supplement will be required, by virtue of the fact that the Depositary Shares will settle in five business days, to specify an alternative settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. Such purchasers should consult their own advisors in this regard.

The Issuer has filed a registration statement (including a prospectus) and a preliminary prospectus supplement dated November 6, 2019 with the SEC for the Offering to which this communication relates. Before you invest, you should read the preliminary prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus in that registration statement and other documents the Issuer has filed with the SEC for more complete information about the Issuer and this Offering.
