2 Originally issued by Fleet Financial Group, Inc.

3 Originally issued by NationsBank Corporation.

If the Offers are oversubscribed, the Notes in each series will be accepted in numerical order according to the Acceptance Priority Level for that series, as listed in the table above. Accordingly, all tenders of Notes with an Acceptance Priority Level of “1” will be accepted before any tenders of Notes with an Acceptance Priority Level of “2” are accepted, and so on until the Maximum Tender Consideration has been allocated. In the event that, after accepting all tenders of Notes with a particular Acceptance Priority Level, the remaining portion of the Maximum Tender Consideration is sufficient to accept some, but not all, tenders of Notes with the next Acceptance Priority Level, then tenders of Notes in that next series will be accepted on a pro rata basis according to the aggregate principal amount of tenders of that series. After allocating the Maximum Tender Consideration in this manner, no tenders of Notes with any subsequent Acceptance Priority Level will be accepted. The Offerors reserve the right, but are not obligated, to increase the Maximum Tender Consideration.
