Morgan Securities LLC and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, as representatives of the several Underwriters, relating to the offering and sale by the Company of $350,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of its 2.50% Senior Notes due 2018 (the "2018 Notes") and $350,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of its 4.00% Senior Notes due 2023 (the "2023 Notes" and, together with the 2018 Notes, the "Notes"). The offering of the Notes closed on March 28, 2013. The Notes were issued pursuant to an Indenture between the Company and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee, dated as of March 28, 2013 (the "Indenture").
