However, the Holder of any Debt Security will have an absolute right to receive payment of principal
of and any premium and interest on the Debt Security when due and to institute suit to enforce such payment (Section 8.09).
Name and Other Indirect Holders
Investors who hold securities in accounts at banks or brokers generally will not be recognized
by us as legal Holders of Debt Securities. This is called holding in Street Name. Instead, we would recognize only the bank or broker, or the financial institution that the bank or broker uses to hold its securities. These intermediary
banks, brokers and other financial institutions pass along principal, interest and other payments on the Debt Securities, either because they agree to do so in their customer agreements or because they are legally required to. If you hold Debt
Securities in Street Name, you should check with your own institution to find out:
Our obligations, as well
as the obligations of the Trustee under the Indenture and those of any third parties employed by us or the Trustee under the Indenture, run only to persons who are registered as Holders of Debt Securities issued under the Indenture. As noted above,
we do not have obligations to you if you hold in Street Name or other indirect means, either because you choose to hold Debt Securities in that manner or because the Debt Securities are issued in the form of global securities as
described below. For example, once we make payment to the registered Holder, we have no further responsibility for the payment even if that Holder is legally required to pass the payment along to you as a Street Name customer but does
not do so.
