Property means, with respect to any Person, any interest of such Person in any kind of property or asset, whether real, personal or mixed, or tangible or intangible, including Capital Stock and other securities issued by any other Person (but excluding Capital Stock or other securities issued by such first mentioned Person).
Rating Agency means, with respect to the Notes of a series,
(1) each of Moodys and S&P; and
(2) if either of Moodys or S&P ceases to rate such Notes or fails to make a rating of such Notes publicly available for reasons outside of our control, a nationally recognized statistical rating organization within the meaning of Section 3(a)(62) of the Exchange Act selected by us as a replacement rating agency for Moodys or S&P, or both, as the case may be.
Rating Date means the earlier of the date of public notice of (i) the occurrence of a Change of Control or (ii) our intention to effect a Change of Control.
Rating Decline shall, with respect to the Notes of a series, be deemed to have occurred if, no later than 30 days after the Rating Date (which period shall be extended so long as the rating of such Notes is under publicly announced consideration for possible downgrade by either of the Rating Agencies and the other Rating Agency has either downgraded, or publicly announced that it is considering downgrading, such Notes), each of the Rating Agencies decreases its rating of such Notes to a rating that is below its rating of such Notes on the day immediately prior to the earlier of (i) the date of the first public announcement of the possibility of a proposed transaction that would result in a Change of Control or (ii) the date that the possibility of such transaction is disclosed to either of the Rating Agencies. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Notes of that series have an Investment Grade Rating by each of the Rating Agencies immediately prior to the Rating Date, then Rating Decline means a decrease in the ratings of such Notes by one or more gradations (including gradations within categories as well as between rating categories) by each of the Rating Agencies such that the rating of such Notes by each of the Rating Agencies falls below an Investment Grade Rating no later than 30 days after the Rating Date (which 30-day period will be extended so long as the rating of such Notes is under publicly announced consideration for possible downgrade by either of the Rating Agencies and the other Rating Agency has either downgraded, or publicly announced that it is considering downgrading, such Notes).
