The following discussion summarizes certain U.S. federal income tax consequences of purchasing, owning and disposing of the notes. This discussion applies only to holders who purchase the notes for cash at their original issuance at their issue price and who hold the notes as capital assets within the meaning of Section 1221 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Internal Revenue Code”) (generally, property held for investment). The issue price of the notes is the first price at which a substantial amount of the notes is sold to the public, other than to bond houses, brokers or similar persons or organizations acting in the capacity of underwriters, placement agents or wholesalers.

In this discussion, we do not purport to address all tax considerations that may be important to a particular holder in light of the holder’s circumstances, or to certain categories of investors that may be subject to special rules, such as:


    dealers in securities or currencies;


    traders in securities;


    U.S. holders (as defined below) whose functional currency is not the U.S. dollar;


    persons holding notes as part of a hedge, straddle, conversion or other “synthetic security” or integrated transaction;


    persons subject to alternative minimum tax;


    U.S. expatriates;


    financial institutions;


    insurance companies;


    real estate investment trusts;


    controlled foreign corporations, foreign personal holding companies, passive foreign investment companies and regulated investment companies and shareholders of such corporations;


    entities that are tax-exempt for U.S. federal income tax purposes and retirement plans, individual retirement accounts and tax-deferred accounts; and


    partnerships and other pass-through entities and holders of interests therein.

This discussion is included for general information only and does not address all of the aspects of U.S. federal income taxation that may be relevant to you in light of your particular circumstances. In addition, this discussion does not address the effect of any estate, gift, state, local, or foreign tax law. This discussion is based on U.S. federal income tax law, including the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code, Treasury regulations, administrative rulings and judicial authority, all as in effect as of the date of this prospectus supplement. Subsequent developments in U.S. federal income tax law, including changes in law or differing interpretations, which may be applied retroactively, could have a material effect on the U.S. federal income tax consequences of purchasing, owning and disposing of notes as described below. Before you purchase notes, you are urged to consult your own tax advisor regarding the particular U.S. federal income, U.S. estate or gift tax, state and local, foreign and other tax consequences of purchasing, owning and disposing of notes that may be applicable to you.

If a partnership (or other entity or arrangement classified as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes) is a beneficial owner of notes, the tax treatment of a partner in the partnership will generally depend upon the status of the partner and upon the activities of the partnership. Prospective holders of notes that are partnerships or partners in such partnerships are urged to consult their own tax advisors regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences of purchasing, owning and disposing of the notes.
