The Notes will bear interest at an annual rate of 0.500%, will be issued at 99.388% of par value and will mature on September 9, 2030. Interest on the Notes is payable annually on September 9 of each year, commencing September 9, 2022. The offering is expected to close on September 9, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.
