The Company may without notice to or the consent of the Holders of the Notes, issue in separate offerings additional notes having the same ranking, interest rate, maturity and other terms as the Notes (other than the date of issuance and, under certain circumstances, the first interest payment date following the issue date of such additional notes). Any such additional notes, together with the Notes, will form a single series of Debt Securities under the Indenture.

The Stated Maturity shall be October 1, 2041 for payment of principal of the Notes. The Notes shall bear interest at the rate of 3.050% per annum, from September 23, 2021 or the most recent interest payment date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, payable semi-annually in arrears on April 1 and October 1 of each year (commencing April 1, 2022), to the Persons in whose names the Notes are registered at the close of business on March 15 or September 15, as the case may be, next preceding such interest payment date, until principal thereof is paid or made available for payment.

SECTION 2.02    Optional Redemption.

(a)    The provisions of Article III of the Indenture, as amended by the provisions of this Fourth Supplemental Indenture, shall apply to the Notes.

(b)    The Notes are subject to redemption upon notice mailed or sent at least 10 days but not more than 60 days prior to the redemption date to each Registered Holder. On or after April 1, 2041 (the “Par Call Date”), the Notes will be redeemable, as a whole or from time to time in part, at the option of the Company at any time, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon to (but excluding) the date of the redemption. Prior to the Par Call Date, the Notes may be redeemed, at any time as a whole or from time to time in part, at the option of the Company, at a redemption price equal to the greater of:

(i)    100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed; and

(ii)    the sum of the present values of the Remaining Scheduled Payments thereon that would be due if the Notes matured on the Par Call 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, accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the principal amount being redeemed to (but excluding) the date of redemption.

If the Company redeems less than all the Notes, the Trustee shall select the Notes to be redeemed, in the case of the Notes in the form of a Global Security, in accordance with the Depositary’s Applicable Procedures, and in the case of any Notes in definitive form, by such method as the Trustee shall select, in such manner as in its sole discretion it shall deem appropriate and fair.

SECTION 2.03    Purchase upon a Change of Control Triggering Event.

(a)    Upon the occurrence of a Change of Control Triggering Event, unless the Company has exercised its right to redeem the Notes in full by giving irrevocable notice to the Trustee in accordance with the Indenture, each Holder of the Notes will have the right to require the Company to purchase all or a portion (equal to $2,000 or whole multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof) of such Holder’s Notes pursuant to the offer described below (the “Change of Control Offer”) at a purchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to (but excluding) the date of purchase (the “Change of Control Payment”), subject to the rights of Holders of the Notes on the relevant record date to receive interest due on the relevant interest payment date. If the Change of Control Payment Date (as defined below) falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the related payment of the Change of Control Payment will be made on the next Business Day as if it were made on the date such payment was due, and no interest will accrue on the amounts so payable for the period from and after such date to the next Business Day.

(b)    Unless the Company has exercised its right to redeem such Notes, within 30 days following the date upon which the Change of Control Triggering Event occurred or, at the Company’s option, prior to any Change of Control but after the public announcement of the pending Change of Control, the Company will be required to send, by first class mail (or with respect to any Global Security, to the extent permitted or required by the Depositary’s Applicable Procedures, send electronically) a notice to each Holder of such Notes, with a copy to the Trustee, which notice will govern the terms of the Change of Control Offer. The notice will state, among other things, the purchase date, which, other than as may be required by applicable law, must be no earlier than 10 days nor later than 60 days after the date the notice is mailed or sent (or, in the case of a notice mailed or sent prior to the date of consummation of a Change of Control, no earlier than the date of the occurrence of the Change of Control), other than as may be required by law (the “Change of Control Payment Date”). The notice, if mailed or sent prior to the date of consummation of the Change of Control, will state that the Change of Control Offer is conditioned on the Change of Control being consummated on or prior to the Change of Control Payment Date.

(c)    On the Change of Control Payment Date, the Company will, to the extent lawful:

(i)    accept or cause a third party to accept for payment all Notes or portions of Notes properly tendered pursuant to the Change of Control Offer;

(ii)    deposit or cause a third party to deposit with the paying agent an amount equal to the Change of Control Payment in respect of all Notes or portions of Notes properly tendered; and

(iii)    deliver or cause to be delivered to the Trustee the Notes properly accepted together with an Officers’ Certificate or statement signed by an Officer of the Company, which need not constitute an Officers’ Certificate, stating the aggregate principal amount of Notes or portions of Notes being purchased.

(d)    The Company will not be required to make a Change of Control Offer with respect to the Notes if (i) a third party makes such an offer in the manner, at the times and otherwise in compliance with

 

-9-


the requirements for such an offer made by the Company and such third party purchases all the Notes properly tendered and not withdrawn under its offer, (ii) a notice of redemption has been given to the Holders of all of the Notes in accordance with the terms of the Indenture, unless and until there is a default in payment of the redemption price, or (iii) in connection with or in contemplation of any Change of Control, the Company has made an offer to purchase (an “Alternate Offer”) any and all Notes validly tendered at a cash price equal to or higher than the Change of Control Payment and has purchased all Notes properly tendered in accordance with the terms of such Alternate Offer.

(e)    The Company will comply in all material respects with the requirements of Rule 14e-1 under the Exchange Act, and any other securities laws and regulations thereunder to the extent those laws and regulations are applicable in connection with the purchase of the Notes as a result of a Change of Control Triggering Event. To the extent that the provisions of any such securities laws or regulations conflict with the Change of Control Offer provisions of the Notes or the Indenture, the Company will comply with those securities laws and regulations and will not be deemed to have breached its obligations under this Section 2.03 by virtue of any such conflict.

In the event that (x) the Blattner Acquisition is not consummated on or prior to June 30, 2022 or (y) the Merger Agreement is terminated without the Blattner Acquisition being consummated (any such event being a “Special Mandatory Redemption Event”), the Company shall redeem all of the Notes then Outstanding (the “Special Mandatory Redemption”), at a price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes then Outstanding, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon, if any, to (but excluding) the redemption date (the “Special Mandatory Redemption Price”). For purposes of the foregoing, the Blattner Acquisition will be deemed consummated if the closing under the Merger Agreement occurs, including after giving effect to any amendments to the Merger Agreement or waivers thereunder acceptable to the Company.

Notice of the occurrence of a Special Mandatory Redemption Event and that a Special Mandatory Redemption is to occur (the “Special Mandatory Redemption Notice”) shall be delivered to the Trustee and delivered to Holders of Notes according to the procedures of the Depositary within 10 Business Days after the Special Mandatory Redemption Event.

Upon the consummation of the Blattner Acquisition, this Section 2.06 shall cease to apply.

In case the Trustee or any Holder shall have proceeded to enforce any right under this Fourth Supplemental Indenture or the Indenture for the benefit of the Notes and such proceedings shall have been discontinued or abandoned because of such rescission or annulment or for any other reason or shall have been determined adversely to the Trustee or such Holder, then and in every such case the parties hereto shall be restored respectively to their several positions and rights hereunder and all rights, remedies and powers of the parties hereto shall continue as though no such proceeding had been taken.

The foregoing Events of Default shall constitute Events of Default whatever the reason for any such Event of Default and whether is voluntary or involuntary or is effected by operation of law or pursuant to any judgment, decree or order of any court or any order, rule or regulation of any administrative or governmental body.

[REVERSE OF GLOBAL NOTE]

This Debt Security is one of a duly authorized issue of securities of the Issuer (herein called the “Debt Securities”), issued and to be issued in one or more series under an Indenture, dated as of September 22, 2020 (the “Base Indenture”) as supplemented by the Fourth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of September 23, 2021 (the “Fourth Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), between the Issuer and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (herein called the “Trustee”), and reference is hereby made to the Indenture for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Issuer, the Trustee and the Registered Holders of the Debt Securities and of the terms upon which the Debt Securities are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered. This Debt Security is one of the series designated on the face hereof.

This Debt Security is subject to redemption upon notice mailed or sent at least 10 days but not more than 60 days prior to the redemption date to each Registered Holder. On or after April 1, 2041 (the “Par Call Date”), this Debt Security will be redeemable, as a whole or from time to time in part, at the option of the Issuer at any time, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon to (but excluding) the date of the redemption. Prior to the Par Call Date, this Debt Security may be redeemed, at any time as a whole or from time to time in part, at the option of the Issuer, at a redemption price equal to the greater of (a) 100% of the principal amount to be redeemed and (b) the sum of the present values of the Remaining Scheduled Payments (as defined in the Fourth Supplemental Indenture) thereon that would be due if the Debt Security matured on the Par Call 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, accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the principal amount being redeemed to (but excluding) the date of redemption. Unless the Issuer defaults in payment of the redemption price, on and after the applicable redemption date, interest will cease to accrue on the Debt Securities or portions thereof called for redemption.

In the event that (x) the Blattner Acquisition is not consummated on or prior to June 30, 2022 or (y) the Merger Agreement is terminated without the Blattner Acquisition being consummated (any such event being a “Special Mandatory Redemption Event”), the Company shall redeem all of this Debt Security, at a price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount thereof then Outstanding, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon, if any, to (but excluding) the redemption date. For purposes of the foregoing, the Blattner Acquisition will be deemed consummated if the closing under the Merger Agreement occurs, including after giving effect to any amendments to the Merger Agreement or waivers thereunder acceptable to the Company. Such redemption shall be in accordance with Section 2.06 of the Fourth Supplemental Indenture.

Upon the occurrence of a Change of Control Triggering Event with respect to this Debt Security, unless the Issuer has exercised its right to redeem this Debt Security in full as set forth in Section 2.03 of the Fourth Supplemental Indenture, by giving irrevocable notice to the Trustee in accordance with the Indenture, each Holder of this Debt Security will have the right to require the Issuer to purchase all or a portion (equal to $2,000 or whole multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof) of such Holder’s Debt Security pursuant to a Change of Control Offer, at a purchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to (but excluding) the date of purchase (the “Change of Control Payment”), subject to the rights of Holders of this Debt Security on the relevant record date to receive interest due on the relevant interest payment date.

Unless the Issuer has exercised its right to redeem this Debt Security, within 30 days following the date upon which the Change of Control Triggering Event occurred with respect to this Debt Security or, at the Issuer’s option, prior to any Change of Control but after the public announcement of the pending

 

A-4


Change of Control, the Issuer will be required to send by first class mail or, to the extent permitted or required by the Depositary’s Applicable Procedures, send electronically, a notice to each Holder of this Debt Security, with a copy to the Trustee, which notice will govern the terms of the Change of Control Offer. The notice will state, among other things, the purchase date, which, other than as may be required by applicable law, must be no earlier than 10 days nor later than 60 days after the date the notice is mailed or sent (or, in the case of a notice mailed or sent prior to the date of consummation of a Change of Control, no earlier than the date of the occurrence of the Change of Control), other than as may be required by law (the “Change of Control Payment Date”). The notice, if mailed or sent prior to the date of consummation of the Change of Control, will state that the Change of Control Offer is conditioned on the Change of Control being consummated on or prior to the Change of Control Payment Date.

On the Change of Control Payment Date, the Issuer will, to the extent lawful:

(i)    accept or cause a third party to accept for payment all Debt Securities of this series or portions of Debt Securities of this series properly tendered pursuant to the Change of Control Offer;

(ii)    deposit or cause a third party to deposit with the paying agent an amount equal to the Change of Control Payment in respect of all Debt Securities of this series or portions of Debt Securities of this series properly tendered; and

(iii)    deliver or cause to be delivered to the Trustee the Debt Securities of this series properly accepted together with an Officers’ Certificate or statement signed by an Officer of the Company, which need not constitute an Officers’ Certificate, stating the aggregate principal amount of Debt Securities of this series or portions of Debt Securities of this series being purchased.

The Issuer will not be required to make a Change of Control Offer with respect to this Debt Security if (x) a third party makes such an offer in the manner, at the times and otherwise in compliance with the requirements for such an offer made by the Issuer and such third party purchases all the Debt Securities of this series properly tendered and not withdrawn under its offer, (y) a notice of redemption has been given to the Holders of all of the Debt Securities of this series in accordance with the terms of the Indenture, unless and until there is a default in payment of the redemption price, or (z) in connection with or in contemplation of any Change of Control, the Issuer has made an offer to purchase (an “Alternate Offer”) any and all Debt Securities of this series validly tendered at a cash price equal to or higher than the Change of Control Payment and has purchased all Debt Securities of this series properly tendered in accordance with the terms of such Alternate Offer.

The Issuer will comply in all material respects with the requirements of Rule 14e-1 under the Exchange Act, and any other securities laws and regulations thereunder to the extent those laws and regulations are applicable in connection with the purchase of this Debt Security as a result of a Change of Control Triggering Event. To the extent that the provisions of any such securities laws or regulations conflict with the Change of Control Offer provisions of this Debt Security or the Indenture, the Issuer will comply with those securities laws and regulations and will not be deemed to have breached its obligations under Section 2.03 of the Fourth Supplemental Indenture by virtue of any such conflict.

The Indenture contains provisions for defeasance at any time of the entire indebtedness of this Debt Security or certain restrictive covenants and Events of Default with respect to this Debt Security, in each case upon compliance with certain conditions set forth in the Indenture. Such provisions shall be applicable to this Debt Security.
