The pricing terms were determined as of the price determination date, which was 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 27, 2012, in accordance with the terms set out in the confidential offering circular for the exchange offers, dated November 13, 2012, and the related letter of transmittal.

The interest rate on the new 2022 notes will be 2.650%. The “New 2022 Issue Yield” (as defined in the confidential offering circular) on the new 2022 notes will be 2.697% and the “New 2022 Notes Value” (as defined in the confidential offering circular) of the new 2022 notes will be $1,145.29. These amounts were determined by reference to the bid-side yield on the 1.625% U.S. Treasury due November 15, 2022 as of the price determination date, which was 1.647%.

The interest rate on the new 2042 notes will be 4.050%.
