The prospectus supplement and any related pricing supplement will describe certain terms of the offered debt securities, including:
 
the title of the offered debt securities;
any limit on the aggregate principal amount of the offered debt securities;
the person or persons to whom interest on the offered debt securities shall be payable on any interest payment date if other than the person in whose name the offered debt security is registered on the regular record date;
the date or dates on which the principal of the offered debt securities is payable;
the rate or rates (or manner in which interest is to be determined) at which the offered debt securities will bear interest, if any, and the date from which such interest, if any, will accrue and the regular record date for the interest payable on the offered debt securities on any interest payment date;
the periods within which, the prices at which and the terms and conditions upon which the offered debt securities may be redeemed, in whole or in part, at our option;
our obligation, if any, to redeem or purchase the offered debt securities pursuant to any sinking fund or analogous provision or at the option of the holder, the period or periods within which, and the price or prices at which and the terms and conditions upon which such offered debt securities will be redeemed or purchased;
whether the offered debt securities are to be issued in whole or in part in the form of one or more global notes and, if so, the identity of the depositary for such global notes; and
any events of default (in addition to those specified in the indenture) or other terms and conditions with respect to the offered debt securities that are not inconsistent with the terms of the indenture.
Unless otherwise provided in the prospectus supplement or a pricing supplement, the debt securities will be issued only in fully registered form, without coupons, in denominations of $1,000 or any integral multiple thereof.
One or more series of debt securities may be issued as discounted debt securities (bearing no interest or interest at a rate which, at the time of issuance, is below market rates) to be sold at a substantial discount below their stated principal amount. Special federal income tax and other considerations applicable thereto will be described in the prospectus supplement relating thereto.
The indenture provides that all debt securities of any one series need not be issued at the same time and that we may, from time to time, issue additional debt securities of a previously issued series. In addition, the indenture provides that we may issue debt securities with terms different from those of any other series of debt securities and, within a series of debt securities, terms, such as interest rate or manner in which interest is calculated, original issue date, redemption provisions and maturity date, may differ.
Payment of Notes; Transfers; Exchanges
Except as may be provided in the applicable prospectus supplement, interest, if any, on each debt security payable on each interest payment date will be paid to the person in whose name such debt security is registered as of the close of business on the regular record date relating to such interest payment date. However, if there has been a default in the payment of interest on any debt security, such defaulted interest may be payable to the holder of such debt security as of the close of business on a date selected by the trustee not more than 15 days and not less than 10 days prior to the date we propose for payment of such defaulted interest. (See Section 307.)
Principal of, and premium and interest, if any, on the debt securities will be payable at the office of the trustee designated for such purpose or at any paying agency we maintain for such purpose. We may appoint one or more paying agents and may remove any paying agent, all in our discretion. The applicable prospectus supplement will identify any paying agent appointed.
The transfer of the debt securities may be registered, and the debt securities may be exchanged for other debt securities of authorized denominations and of like tenor and aggregate principal amount at the office of the trustee designated for such purpose or at any paying agency we maintain for such purpose. We may appoint one or more additional security registrars or transfer agents and may remove any security registrar or transfer agent, all in our discretion. The applicable prospectus supplement will identify any additional security registrar or transfer agent appointed.
