(as successor to Wells Fargo Bank, National Association), as trustee (the “Trustee”), as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of May 23, 2022, among Target, Parent, Merger Sub 2 and the Trustee (the “First 2024 Supplemental Indenture,” and together with the Original 2024 Indenture, the “2024 Indenture”), relating to the 2024 Notes (defined below), and (b) that certain Indenture, dated as of December 17, 2020 (the “2026 Original Indenture”), between Target and Trustee, as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of May 23, 2022, among Target, Parent, Merger Sub 2 and the Trustee (the “2026 First Supplemental Indenture,” and together with the 2026 Original Indenture, the “2026 Indenture” and, together with the 2024 Indenture, the “Indentures” and each an “Indenture”), relating to the 2026 Notes (defined below).

In connection with the Combination, pursuant to the terms of the First 2024 Supplemental Indenture and the First 2026 Supplemental Indenture, Parent unconditionally guaranteed all of the Successor Company’s obligations under the Notes and the Indentures, including any payments with respect to the repurchase offer made by the 2024 Notes Notices and the 2026 Notes Notice (each defined below).
