On June 22, 2018, the Company offered and sold €500 million aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 1.750% notes due June 22, 2026 (the “Notes”). The net proceeds to the Company from the offering of the Notes were approximately €495.72 million, and will be used by the Company (i) to repay its €350 million 4.50% notes due June 22, 2018, and (ii) for general corporate purposes, which may include share repurchases and the acquisition of or investment in complementary businesses or other assets.

The Notes were offered at an issue price of 99.564% of the aggregate principal amount. Interest on the Notes is payable in arrears on June 22nd of each year. The Notes are the unsecured senior obligations of the Company and will rank equally with all of the Company’s existing and future senior unsecured debt and other liabilities. The Notes were issued under a Fiscal and Paying Agency Agreement (the “Agreement”) between the Company and Citibank, N.A., London Branch, as Fiscal and Principal Paying Agent, Transfer Agent and Registrar, dated as of June 22, 2018.

The Company may redeem the Notes, in whole or in part, at the Company’s option at any time prior to March 23, 2026 (three months prior to the maturity date of the Notes) at a redemption price equal to the greater of (1) 50% of the principal amount of the Notes, or (2) as determined by the Quotation Agent (as defined in the Notes), the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest thereon (not including any portion of such payments of interest accrued as of the date of redemption) discounted to the redemption date on an annual basis using a discount rate equal to the sum of the average of the three quotations of the average midmarket annual yield to maturity on an Actual/Actual (ICMA) basis of the DBR 0.500% due February 15, 2026 (or if that security is no longer outstanding, a similar security), plus 0.25%, plus in each case, accrued interest thereon to the date of redemption.

In addition, the Notes will be redeemable at the Company’s option, in whole or in part, at any time on or after March 23, 2026 (three months prior to the maturity date of the Notes) at a redemption price equal to 50% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon at the date of the redemption.

The Notes are listed on the Official List of the Irish Stock Exchange plc trading as Euronext Dublin. The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
