Whether the Notes will be convertible at any time after September 30, 2012 will depend on whether any of the conversion conditions specified in the Indenture are satisfied, including whether the price of Textron’s common stock exceeds the conversion threshold price for the requisite number of trading days during subsequent quarters.
