2. Tenders should be forwarded in an envelope clearly addressed to this bank or appropriate branch as Fiscal Agent of the
United States, with notation on the envelope reading “TENDER FOR TREASURY OFFERING”. Since envelopes

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
