principal amount of the debt securities of that series to be due immediately. Except as otherwise specified in the applicable prospectus supplement, if the event of default occurs because of
events in bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization relating to the Company, the entire principal amount of the debt securities of that series will be automatically accelerated, without any action by the trustee or any holder.
Each of the situations described above may result in an acceleration of the stated maturity of the affected series of debt securities. Except
as otherwise specified in the applicable prospectus supplement, if the stated maturity of any series is accelerated and a judgment for payment has not yet been obtained, the holders of a majority in principal amount of the debt securities of that
series may cancel the acceleration for the entire series.
If an event of default occurs, the trustee will have special duties. In that
situation, the trustee will be obligated to use those of its rights and powers under the relevant indenture, and to use the same degree of care and skill in doing so, that a prudent person would use in that situation in conducting his or her own
Except as described in the prior paragraph, the trustee is not required to take any action under the relevant indenture at the
request of any holders unless the holders offer the trustee protection satisfactory to it from loss, liability or expense. These majority holders may also direct the trustee in performing any other action under the relevant indenture with respect to
the debt securities of that series.
Except as otherwise specified in the applicable prospectus supplement, before a holder may take steps
to enforce its rights or protect its interests relating to any debt security, all of the following must occur:
||the holder must give the trustee written notice that an event of default has occurred with respect to the debt securities of the series, and the event of default must not have been cured or waived; |
||the holders of at least 25% in principal amount of all debt securities of the series must request that the trustee take action because of the default, and they or other holders must offer to the trustee indemnity
reasonably satisfactory to the trustee against the cost and other liabilities of taking that action; |
||the trustee must not have taken action for 60 days after the above steps have been taken; and |
||during those 60 days, the holders of a majority in principal amount of the debt securities of the series must not have given the trustee directions that are inconsistent with such request. |
Book-entry and other indirect owners should consult their banks or brokers for information on how to give notice or direction to or make a
request of the trustee and how to declare or cancel an acceleration of the maturity.
Waiver of Default. Except as otherwise
specified in the applicable prospectus supplement, the holders of a majority in principal amount of the debt securities of any series may by notice to the trustee waive an existing default and its consequences for all debt securities of that series
except (i) a default in the payment of the principal of or interest on a debt security (ii) a default arising from the failure to redeem or purchase any debt security when required pursuant to the indenture or (iii) a default in
respect of a provision that under the indenture cannot be amended without the consent of each securityholder affected. If a waiver occurs, the default is deemed cured, but no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other default or impair any
