1. No tender for less than $10,000 will be considered and each tender over $10,000 m ust be for an amount in multiples of
$5,000 (m aturity value).
2. Tenders should be forwarded in an envelope clearly addressed to this bank or appropriate branch as Fiscal \g e n t of the

bank or appropriate branch.
3. Any qualified or conditional tender will be rejected.
4. If a corporation makes the tender, the form should be signed by an officer of the corporation authorized to make the
