option to purchase an additional 2 million non-cumulative 5-Year Reset

part of their shares into non-cumulative Floating Rate Preferred Shares,
Series T (the "Series T Shares"), subject to certain conditions, on July 31,
2013, and on July 31 every five years thereafter. Holders of the Series T
Shares will be entitled to receive quarterly floating dividends, as and when
