Trade Date:

   July 20, 2021

Settlement Date:

   August 2, 2021 (T+9)
   It is expected that delivery of the Notes will be made against payment therefor on or about August 2, 2021, which will be the ninth business day following the date of pricing of the Notes (such settlement cycle being referred to herein as ‘‘T+9’’). Under Rule 15c6-1 pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade any Notes on any day prior to the second business day before delivery will be required, by virtue of the fact that the Notes initially will settle in T+9, to specify an alternate settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. Purchasers of any Notes who wish to trade such Notes on the date of pricing should consult their own advisors.
