If the euro is unavailable to the issuer or, in the case of the guarantee, the guarantor, due to the imposition of exchange controls or other circumstances beyond the issuer’s or the guarantor’s control or if the euro is no longer being used by the then member states of the European Economic and Monetary Union that have adopted the euro as their currency or for the settlement of transactions by public institutions of or within the international banking community, then all payments in respect of the notes will be made in U.S. dollars until the euro is again available to the issuer, or, in the case of the guarantee, the guarantor or so used.

Redemption for Tax Reasons:   The issuer may redeem all, but not less than all, of the notes in the event of certain changes in the tax law of The Netherlands or the United States (or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein) if, in the written opinion of independent counsel chosen by the issuer or the guarantor, there is a material probability that the issuer or the guarantor will become obligated to pay additional interest on the notes as described above under “Payment of Additional Amounts.” The redemption would be at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed, together with accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the date fixed for redemption.
