*Note: A security rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold securities, and may be subject to revision or withdrawal at any time. Each of the security ratings above should be evaluated independently of any other security rating.

 

**Note: We expect that delivery of the notes will be made against payment therefor on or about November 9, 2017, which will be the seventh business day following the date of the pricing of the notes (such settlement being referred to as “T+7”). Under Rule 15c6-1 of the Exchange Act, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days, unless the parties to a trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade notes on the date of pricing or the next two succeeding business days will be required, by virtue of the fact that the notes initially will settle in T+7, to specify alternative settlement arrangements to prevent a failed settlement. Purchasers of the notes who wish to trade the notes prior to their date of delivery hereunder should consult their own advisors.
