time to time parties thereto, and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as
administrative agent and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., acting
through its Hong Kong branch, as administrative agent to any
non-U.S. subsidiary borrower organized under the laws of Hong

credit facility dated as of December 13, 2013. The Credit
Agreement provides for extensions of credit in the aggregate
amount of up to $1,800,000,000 consisting of revolving credit
facilities and letters of credit.

Interest and fees under the Credit Agreement will generally be
payable at least on a quarterly basis and the applicable margins

by Moodys Investors Service, Inc. or Standard Poors Ratings
Group.

The Company and certain of its U.S. and non-U.S. subsidiaries may
be borrowers under the Credit Agreement. Loans may be made, and
letters of credit may be issued, under the Credit Agreement in
U.S. Dollars, British Pounds Sterling, Euros and other specified
currencies. The Companys obligations are guaranteed by certain of
the Companys domestic subsidiaries. The obligations of any
subsidiary borrowers are guaranteed by the Company.

among other things, the requirement to comply with various
financial ratios and tests, restrictions on the Companys and
certain of its subsidiaries ability to incur liens; merge or
consolidate with other companies; enter into agreements that
limit its or its subsidiaries ability to incur liens or its
subsidiaries ability pay dividends; restrictions on the ability
to make certain acquisitions; and restrictions on the ability of
the Companys subsidiaries to incur indebtedness.

The Credit Agreement will mature on December 23, 2021 and the
maturity may be accelerated upon the occurrence and during the

Credit Agreement include the failure to pay principal or interest
when due; the breach of any representation or warranty; covenant
defaults; insolvency of the Company or certain subsidiaries;
