Description of Certain Provisions Applicable to the Floating Rate Notes due 2016
The floating rate notes due 2016 (the 2016 floating rate notes) offered hereby will initially be limited to $625,000,000 aggregate principal amount. The 2016 floating rate notes will bear interest from February 28, 2013, or from the most recent interest payment date on which we have paid or provided for interest on the 2016 floating rate notes. The 2016 floating rate notes will mature at 100% of their principal amount on February 26, 2016 and are not subject to any sinking fund. The 2016 floating rate notes will not be redeemable.
The Bank of New York Mellon will act as calculation agent for the 2016 floating rate notes under an Amended and Restated Calculation Agency Agreement between the issuer and The Bank of New York Mellon dated as of May 10, 2011.
Interest Payment Dates
Interest on the 2016 floating rate notes will be payable quarterly in arrears on February 26, May 26, August 26 and November 26, commencing on May 26, 2013 to the persons in whose names the notes are registered at the close of business on each February 11, May 11, August 11 and November 11 as the case may be (whether or not a New York business day (as defined below)). If any interest payment date (other than the maturity date or any earlier repayment date) falls on a day that is not a New York business day, the payment of interest that would otherwise be payable on such date will be postponed to the next succeeding New York business day, except that if such New York business day falls in the next succeeding calendar month, the applicable interest payment date will be the immediately preceding New York business day. If the maturity date or any earlier repayment date of the 2016
floating rate notes falls on a day that is not a New York business day, the payment of principal, premium, if any, and interest, if any, otherwise payable on such date will be postponed to the next succeeding New York business day, and no interest on such payment will accrue from and after the maturity date or earlier repayment date, as applicable.
A New York business day is any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or other day on which commercial banks are required or permitted by law, regulation or executive order to be closed in New York City.
Interest Reset Dates
The interest rate will be reset quarterly on February 26, May 26, August 26 and November 26, commencing on May 26, 2013. However, if any interest reset date would otherwise be a day that is not a New York business day, such interest reset date will be the next succeeding day that is a New York business day, except that if the next succeeding New York business day falls in the next succeeding calendar month, the applicable interest reset date will be the immediately preceding New York business day.
Interest Periods and Interest Rate
The initial interest period will be the period from and including February 28, 2013 to but excluding the first interest reset date. The interest rate in effect during the initial interest period will be equal to LIBOR plus 21 basis points, determined two London business days prior to February 28, 2013. A London business day is a day on which dealings in deposits in U.S. dollars are transacted in the London interbank market.
After the initial interest period, the interest periods will be the periods from and including an interest reset date to but excluding the immediately succeeding interest reset date, except that the final interest period will be the period from and including the interest reset date immediately preceding the maturity date to but excluding the maturity date. The interest rate per annum for the 2016 floating rate notes in any interest period will be equal to LIBOR plus 21 basis points, as determined by the calculation agent. The interest rate in effect for the 15 calendar days prior to any repayment date earlier than the maturity date will be the interest rate in effect on the fifteenth day preceding such earlier repayment date.
The interest rate on the 2016 floating rate notes will be limited to the maximum rate permitted by New York law, as the same may be modified by United States law of general application.
Upon the request of any holder of 2016 floating rate notes, the calculation agent will provide the interest rate then in effect and, if determined, the interest rate that will become effective on the next interest reset date.
The calculation agent will determine LIBOR for each interest period on the second London business day prior to the first day of such interest period.
LIBOR, with respect to any interest determination date, will be the offered rate for deposits of U.S. dollars having a maturity of three months that appears on Reuters Page LIBOR 01 at approximately 11:00 a.m., London time, on such interest determination date. If on an interest determination date, such rate does not appear on the Reuters Page LIBOR 01 as of 11:00 a.m., London time, or if Reuters Page LIBOR 01 is not available on such date, the calculation agent will obtain such rate from Bloomberg L.P.s page BBAM.
If no offered rate appears on Reuters Page LIBOR 01 or Bloomberg L.P. page BBAM on an interest determination date, LIBOR will be determined for such interest determination date on the basis of the rates at approximately 11:00 a.m., London time, on such interest determination date at which deposits in U.S. dollars are offered to prime banks in the London inter-bank market by four major banks in such market selected by PepsiCo, for a term of three months commencing on the applicable interest reset date and in a principal amount equal to an amount that in the judgment of the calculation agent is representative for a single transaction in U.S. dollars in such market at such time. The calculation agent will request the principal London office of each of such banks to provide a quotation of its rate. If at least two such quotations are provided, LIBOR for such interest period will be the arithmetic mean of such quotations. If fewer than two such quotations are provided, LIBOR for such interest period will be the arithmetic mean of the rates quoted at approximately 11:00 a.m. in New York City on such interest determination date by three major banks in New York City, selected by PepsiCo, for loans in U.S. dollars to leading
European banks, for a term of three months commencing on the applicable interest reset date and in a principal amount equal to an amount that in the judgment of the calculation agent is representative for a single transaction in U.S. dollars in such market at such time; provided, however, that if the banks so selected are not quoting as mentioned above, the then-existing LIBOR rate will remain in effect for such interest period, or, if none, the interest rate will be the initial interest rate.
All percentages resulting from any calculation of any interest rate for the 2016 floating rate notes will be rounded, if necessary, to the nearest one hundred thousandth of a percentage point, with five one-millionths of a percentage point rounded upward (e.g., 5.876545% (or .05876545) would be rounded to 5.87655% (or .0587655)), and all U.S. dollar amounts will be rounded to the nearest cent, with one-half cent being rounded upward. Each calculation of the interest rate on the 2016 floating rate notes by the calculation agent will (in the absence of manifest error) be final and binding on the noteholders and PepsiCo.
Accrued interest on the 2016 floating rate notes will be calculated by multiplying the principal amount of the 2016 floating rate notes by an accrued interest factor. This accrued interest factor will be computed by adding the interest factors calculated for each day in the period for which interest is being paid. The interest factor for each day is computed by dividing the interest rate applicable to that day by 360. For these calculations, the interest rate in effect on any reset date will be the applicable rate as reset on that date. The interest rate applicable to any other day is the interest rate from the immediately preceding reset date or, if none, the initial interest rate.
