Item 1.01     Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
 
On November 16, 2018, Trinity Industries, Inc. ("Trinity") entered into an accelerated share repurchase program (the "ASR Program") with JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association ("JPM") to repurchase $350 million of Trinity's common stock as part of Trinity's previously announced existing $500 million share repurchase program.

Under the terms of the ASR Program, Trinity has agreed to repurchase from JPM $350 million of its common stock, with an initial delivery of approximately 12.9 million shares, representing approximately 80% of the notional amount of the ASR Program, based on the closing price of $21.74 on November 15, 2018. Upon final settlement, Trinity may be entitled to receive additional shares of Trinity’s common stock from JPM or, under certain circumstances, Trinity may be required to deliver shares or make a cash payment, at its option, to JPM. The final number of shares to be repurchased will be based on Trinity's volume-weighted average stock price, less a discount, during the term of the ASR Program, which is expected to be completed by the end of first quarter of 2019.
 
The Master Confirmation for the ASR Program (the "Master Confirmation") contains the principal provisions governing the ASR Program, including, but not limited to, the mechanism used to determine the number of shares that will be delivered and the timing of such delivery, the circumstances under which JPM is permitted to make adjustments, the circumstances under which the ASR Program may be terminated early, and various acknowledgments, representations and warranties made by Trinity and JPM to one another.

The foregoing description of the ASR Program is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by the terms of the Master Confirmation, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference as though fully set forth herein.

Trinity will fund the ASR Program with proceeds received from an increase in borrowing under the Amended and Restated Term Loan Agreement dated as of November 8, 2018 among Trinity Rail Leasing 2017 LLC, the lenders party thereto, Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank, as Administrative Agent, and U.S. Bank National Association, as Collateral Agent, Custodian and Depositary.

 
Item 8.01     Other Events
 
On November 16, 2018, Trinity issued a press release announcing its entry into the ASR program and updating the Company's full year 2019 earnings per share guidance, which was previously provided with the third quarter 2018 earnings announcement. This press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Re:     Master Confirmation—Uncollared Accelerated Share Repurchase
This master confirmation (this “Master Confirmation”), dated as of November 16, 2018, is intended to set forth certain terms and provisions of certain Transactions (each, a “Transaction”) entered into from time to time between JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, London Branch (“JPMorgan”) and Trinity Industries, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Counterparty”). This Master Confirmation, taken alone, is neither a commitment by either party to enter into any Transaction nor evidence of a Transaction. The additional terms of any particular Transaction shall be set forth in a Supplemental Confirmation in the form of Schedule A hereto (a “Supplemental Confirmation”), which shall reference this Master Confirmation and supplement, form a part of, and be subject to this Master Confirmation. This Master Confirmation and each Supplemental Confirmation together shall constitute a “Confirmation” as referred to in the Agreement specified below.
The definitions and provisions contained in the 2002 ISDA Equity Derivatives Definitions (the “Equity Definitions”), as published by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc., are incorporated into this Master Confirmation. This Master Confirmation and each Supplemental Confirmation evidence a complete binding agreement between Counterparty and JPMorgan as to the subject matter and terms of each Transaction to which this Master Confirmation and such Supplemental Confirmation relate and shall supersede all prior or contemporaneous written or oral communications with respect thereto.
This Master Confirmation and each Supplemental Confirmation supplement, form a part of, and are subject to an agreement in the form of the ISDA 2002 Master Agreement (the “Agreement”) as if JPMorgan and Counterparty had executed the Agreement on the date of this Master Confirmation (but without any Schedule except for (i) the election of New York law as the governing law (without reference to its choice of law provisions), (ii) the election that subparagraph (ii) of Section 2(c) will not apply to the Transactions and (iii) the election that the “Cross Default” provisions of Section 5(a)(vi) shall apply to JPMorgan as if (x) the “Threshold Amount” with respect to JPMorgan were equal to 3% of the shareholder’s equity of JPMorgan, (y) the phrase “, or becoming capable of being declared,” in Section 5(a)(vi)(1) were deleted, and (z) “Specified Indebtedness” had the meaning specified in Section 14 of the Agreement, except that such term shall not include obligations in respect of deposits received in the ordinary course of JPMorgan’s banking business).

The Transactions shall be the sole Transactions under the Agreement. If there exists any ISDA Master Agreement between JPMorgan and Counterparty or any confirmation or other agreement between JPMorgan and Counterparty pursuant to which an ISDA Master Agreement is deemed to exist between JPMorgan and Counterparty, then notwithstanding anything to the contrary in such ISDA Master Agreement, such confirmation or agreement or any other agreement to which JPMorgan and Counterparty are parties, the Transactions shall not be considered Transactions under, or otherwise governed by, such existing or deemed ISDA Master Agreement, and the occurrence of any Event of Default or Termination Event under the Agreement with respect to either party or any Transaction shall not, by itself, give rise to any right or obligation under any such other agreement or deemed agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any other agreement between the parties or their Affiliates, the Transactions shall not be “Specified Transactions” (or similarly treated) under any other agreement between the parties or their Affiliates.
All provisions contained or incorporated by reference in the Agreement shall govern this Master Confirmation and each Supplemental Confirmation except as expressly modified herein or in the related Supplemental Confirmation.
If, in relation to any Transaction to which this Master Confirmation and a Supplemental Confirmation relate, there is any inconsistency between the Agreement, this Master Confirmation, such Supplemental Confirmation and the Equity Definitions, the following will prevail for purposes of such Transaction in the order of precedence indicated: (i) such Supplemental Confirmation; (ii) this Master Confirmation; (iii) the Equity Definitions; and (iv) the Agreement.
1.Each Transaction constitutes a Share Forward Transaction for the purposes of the Equity Definitions. Set forth below are the terms and conditions that, together with the terms and conditions set forth in the Supplemental Confirmation relating to any Transaction, shall govern such Transaction.

2


composite transactions for United States exchanges and quotation systems, during the regular trading session for the Exchange on such Exchange Business Day, as published by Bloomberg at 4:15 p.m. New York City time (or 15 minutes following the end of any extension of the regular trading session) on such Exchange Business Day, on Bloomberg Page “TRN US <Equity> AQR SEC” (or any successor thereto), absent manifest error or unavailability of such page or a successor thereto, in which case the Calculation Agent shall determine the VWAP Price for such Exchange Business Day using a volume-weighted method.
Forward Price:
For each Transaction, the arithmetic average of the VWAP Prices for all of the Exchange Business Days in the Calculation Period for such Transaction, subject to “Valuation Disruption” below.
Forward Price Adjustment Amount:
For each Transaction, as set forth in the related Supplemental Confirmation.
Calculation Period:
For each Transaction, the period from, and including, the Calculation Period Start Date for such Transaction to, and including, the Termination Date for such Transaction.
Calculation Period Start Date:
For each Transaction, as set forth in the related Supplemental Confirmation.
Termination Date:
For each Transaction, the Scheduled Termination Date for such Transaction; provided that JPMorgan shall have the right to designate any Exchange Business Day on or after the First Acceleration Date to be the Termination Date for all or any part of such Transaction (an “Accelerated Termination Date”) by delivering notice (an “Accelerated Notice”) to Counterparty of any such designation prior to 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Exchange Business Day immediately following the designated Accelerated Termination Date. JPMorgan shall specify in each Acceleration Notice the portion of the Prepayment Amount that is subject to acceleration, which shall not be less than 30% of the full Prepayment Amount unless such portion is equal to all of the then-remaining Prepayment Amount. If the portion of the Prepayment Amount that is subject to acceleration is less than the full Prepayment Amount, then the Calculation Agent shall make such mechanical, computational or formulaic adjustments to the terms of the Transaction (including adjusting the Prepayment Amount that remains subject to the Transaction and any other adjustments the Calculation Agent deems necessary for the operation of the Transaction) as appropriate in order to take into account the occurrence of such Accelerated Termination Date (taking into account all prior adjustments on prior Accelerated Termination Dates).
Scheduled Termination Date:
For each Transaction, as set forth in the related Supplemental Confirmation, subject to postponement as provided in “Valuation Disruption” below.

3


First Acceleration Date:
For each Transaction, as set forth in the related Supplemental Confirmation.
Valuation Disruption:
The definition of “Market Disruption Event” in Section 6.3(a) of the Equity Definitions is hereby amended by deleting the words “at any time during the one-hour period that ends at the relevant Valuation Time, Latest Exercise Time, Knock-in Valuation Time or Knock-out Valuation Time, as the case may be” and inserting the words “at any time on any Scheduled Trading Day during the Calculation Period or Settlement Valuation Period” after the word “material,” in the third line thereof.
Section 6.3(d) of the Equity Definitions is hereby amended by deleting the remainder of the provision following the term “Scheduled Closing Time” in the fourth line thereof.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Equity Definitions, if a Disrupted Day (other than a Disrupted Day that is deemed not to be a Disrupted Day pursuant to the immediately following two paragraphs) occurs (i) in the Calculation Period, the Calculation Agent may, in its good faith and commercially reasonable discretion, postpone the Scheduled Termination Date by one Scheduled Trading Day, or (ii) in the Settlement Valuation Period, the Calculation Agent may, in its good faith and commercially reasonable discretion, extend the Settlement Valuation Period by one Scheduled Trading Day. The Calculation Agent shall also determine if (i) such Disrupted Day is a Disrupted Day in full, in which case the VWAP Price for such Disrupted Day shall not be included for purposes of determining the Forward Price or the Settlement Price, as the case may be, or (ii) such Disrupted Day is a Disrupted Day only in part, in which case the VWAP Price for such Disrupted Day shall be determined by the Calculation Agent based on Rule 10b-18 eligible transactions in the Shares on such Disrupted Day effected before the relevant Market Disruption Event occurred and/or after the relevant Market Disruption Event ended and the weighting of the VWAP Price for the relevant Exchange Business Days during the Calculation Period or the Settlement Valuation Period, as the case may be, shall be adjusted in a commercially reasonable manner by the Calculation Agent for purposes of determining the Forward Price or the Settlement Price, as the case may be, with such adjustments based on the duration of any Market Disruption Event and the volume, historical trading patterns and price of the Shares. In each such case, the Calculation Agent shall as soon as reasonably practicable following the occurrence of such Disrupted Day (but in any event within two Exchange Business Days of such Disrupted Day) notify Counterparty in writing of (A) circumstances giving rise to such Disrupted Day, and (B) any such weighting, extension or suspension. Any Exchange Business Day on which, as of the date hereof, the Exchange is scheduled to close prior to its normal close of trading shall be deemed not to be an Exchange Business Day; if a closure of the Exchange prior to its normal close of trading on any Exchange Business Day is scheduled following the date hereof, then such Exchange Business Day shall be deemed to be a Disrupted Day in full.

4


If a Disrupted Day occurs during the Calculation Period for any Transaction or the Settlement Valuation Period for any Transaction, as the case may be, and each of the nine immediately following Scheduled Trading Days is a Disrupted Day, then unless the parties otherwise agree in writing, an Additional Termination Event shall be deemed to have occurred in respect of such Transaction, with Counterparty as the sole Affected Party and such Transaction as the sole Affected Transaction.    
Settlement Terms.
Settlement Procedures:
For each Transaction:
(i)
if the Number of Shares to be Delivered for such Transaction is positive, Physical Settlement shall be applicable to such Transaction; provided that JPMorgan does not, and shall not, make the agreement or the representations set forth in Section 9.11 of the Equity Definitions related to the restrictions imposed by applicable securities laws with respect to any Shares delivered by JPMorgan to Counterparty under any Transaction; or
(ii)
if the Number of Shares to be Delivered for such Transaction is negative, then the Counterparty Settlement Provisions in Annex A hereto shall apply to such Transaction.
Number of Shares to be Delivered:
For each Transaction, a number of Shares (rounded down to the nearest whole number) equal to (a)(i) the Prepayment Amount for such Transaction, divided by (ii)(A) the Forward Price for such Transaction minus (B) the Forward Price Adjustment Amount for such Transaction, minus (b) the number of Initial Shares for such Transaction; provided that if the result of the calculation in clause (a)(ii) is equal to or less than the Floor Price for such Transaction, then the Number of Shares to be Delivered for such Transaction shall be determined as if clause (a)(ii) were replaced with “(ii) the Floor Price for such Transaction”. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Forward Price Adjustment Amount for any Transaction is a negative number, clause (a)(ii) of the immediately preceding sentence shall be equal to (A) the Forward Price for such Transaction, plus (B) the absolute value of the Forward Price Adjustment Amount.
Floor Price:
For each Transaction, as set forth in the related Supplemental Confirmation.
Excess Dividend Amount:
For the avoidance of doubt, all references to the Excess Dividend Amount shall be deleted from Section 9.2(a)(iii) of the Equity Definitions.

5


Settlement Date:
For each Transaction, if the Number of Shares to be Delivered for all or such portion of such Transaction is positive, (x) in the case of an Accelerated Termination Date, the date that is one Settlement Cycle immediately following the date on which Dealer delivers notice of such Accelerated Termination Date and (y) in the case of a Termination Date occurring on the Scheduled Termination Date, the date that is one Settlement Cycle immediately following the Termination Date, in either case, for all or such portion of such Transaction (the final Settlement Date, the “Final Settlement Date”).
Settlement Currency:
USD
Initial Share Delivery:
For each Transaction, JPMorgan shall deliver a number of Shares equal to the Initial Shares for such Transaction to Counterparty on the Initial Share Delivery Date for such Transaction in accordance with Section 9.4 of the Equity Definitions, with such Initial Share Delivery Date deemed to be a “Settlement Date” for purposes of such Section 9.4.
Initial Share Delivery Date:
For each Transaction, as set forth in the related Supplemental Confirmation.
Initial Shares:
For each Transaction, as set forth in the related Supplemental Confirmation.
Delivery of Cash:
For the avoidance of doubt, other than payment of the Prepayment Amount by Issuer, nothing in this Master Confirmation shall be interpreted as requiring Issuer to cash settle any Transaction, except in circumstances where cash settlement is within Issuer’s control (including, without limitation, where Issuer timely elects not to receive or deliver Shares in respect of the settlement of such Transactions) or in those circumstances in which all or substantially all holders of the Shares would also receive cash.
Share Adjustments.
Potential Adjustment Event:
In addition to the events described in Section 11.2(e) of the Equity Definitions, it shall constitute an additional Potential Adjustment Event if (i) the Scheduled Termination Date for any Transaction is postponed pursuant to “Valuation Disruption” above (including, for the avoidance of doubt, pursuant to Section 7 hereof), or (ii) a Regulatory Disruption as described in Section 7 hereof occurs. In the case of any event described in clause (i) or (ii) above occurring, the Calculation Agent may, in its commercially reasonable discretion, adjust any relevant terms of such Transaction as necessary to preserve as nearly as practicable the fair value of such Transaction to JPMorgan prior to such postponement or Regulatory Disruption, as the case may be, to the extent that it reasonably concludes that an extension or postponement would not be sufficient to preserve as nearly as practicable the fair value of such Transaction to JPMorgan.

6


Excess Dividend:
For any calendar quarter, any dividend or distribution on the Shares with an ex-dividend date occurring during such calendar quarter (other than any dividend or distribution of the type described in Section 11.2(e)(i) or Section 11.2(e)(ii)(A) of the Equity Definitions or any Extraordinary Dividend) (a “Dividend”) the amount or value of which per Share (as determined by the Calculation Agent), when aggregated with the amount or value (as determined by the Calculation Agent) of any and all previous Dividends with ex-dividend dates occurring in the same calendar quarter, exceeds the Ordinary Dividend Amount. “Extraordinary Dividend” means the per Share cash dividend or distribution, or a portion thereof, declared by Counterparty on the Shares that is classified by the board of directors of Counterparty as an “extraordinary” dividend.
Consequences of Excess Dividend:
The declaration by the Issuer of any Excess Dividend, the ex-dividend date for which occurs or is scheduled to occur during the Relevant Dividend Period for any Transaction, may, at JPMorgan’s election in its commercially reasonable discretion, either (x) constitute an Additional Termination Event in respect of such Transaction, with Counterparty as the sole Affected Party and such Transaction as the sole Affected Transaction or (y) result in an adjustment, by the Calculation Agent, to the Floor Price as the Calculation Agent determines appropriate to preserve the fair value of such Transaction after taking into account such Excess Dividend. For the avoidance of doubt, any amount calculated pursuant to Section 6 of this Agreement shall not reflect the value associated with such Excess Dividend.
Ordinary Dividend Amount:
For each Transaction, as set forth in the related Supplemental Confirmation.
Method of Adjustment:
Calculation Agent Adjustment
Early Ordinary Dividend Payment:
For each Transaction, if an ex-dividend date for any Dividend that is not (x) an Excess Dividend, (y) a dividend or distribution of the type described in Section 11.2(e)(i) or Section 11.2(e)(ii)(A) of the Equity Definitions or (z) an Extraordinary Dividend, occurs during any calendar quarter occurring (in whole or in part) during the Relevant Dividend Period for such Transaction and is prior to the Scheduled Ex-Dividend Date for such Transaction for the relevant calendar quarter (as determined by the Calculation Agent), the Calculation Agent shall make such adjustment to the exercise, settlement, payment or any other terms of the relevant Transaction as the Calculation Agent determines appropriate to offset the change in fair value of such Transaction attributable to the timing of such Dividend.
Scheduled Ex-Dividend Dates:
For each Transaction, as set forth in the related Supplemental Confirmation for each calendar quarter.

7


Relevant Dividend Period:
For each Transaction, the period from, and including, the Trade Date for such Transaction to, and including, the Relevant Dividend Period End Date for such Transaction.
Relevant Dividend Period End Date:
For each Transaction, if the Number of Shares to be Delivered for such Transaction is negative, the last day of the Settlement Valuation Period; otherwise, the Termination Date for such Transaction.
Agreement Regarding Dividends:
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Master Confirmation, the Equity Definitions or the Agreement to the contrary, in calculating any adjustment pursuant to Article 11 of the Equity Definitions or any amount payable in respect of any termination or cancellation of the Transaction pursuant to Article 12 of the Equity Definitions or Section 6 of the Agreement, the Calculation Agent shall not take into account changes to any dividends since the Trade Date. For the avoidance of doubt, if an Early Termination Date occurs in respect of the Transaction, the amount payable pursuant to Section 6 of the Agreement in respect of such Early Termination Date shall be determined without regard to the difference between actual dividends declared (including Extraordinary Dividends) and expected dividends as of the Trade Date.

Modified Calculation Agent Adjustment
(b) Share-for-Other:
Cancellation and Payment

8


thereto)”, (iv) replacing the words “voting shares” with the words “Shares” in the fifth line thereof and (v) inserting the words “by any party thereto or the Issuer or any affiliate or representative of the foregoing” after the word “announcement” in the second and the fourth lines thereof.

(xiv)
Counterparty has not entered, and will not enter, into any repurchase transaction with respect to the Shares (or any security convertible into or exchangeable for the Shares) (including, without limitation, any agreements similar to the Transactions described herein) where any initial hedge period, calculation period, relevant period, settlement valuation period or seller termination purchase period (each however defined) in such other transaction will overlap at any time (including, without limitation, as a result of extensions in such initial hedge period, calculation period, relevant period, settlement valuation period or seller termination purchase period as provided in the relevant agreements) with any Relevant Period, any Settlement Valuation Period (if applicable) or any Seller Termination Purchase Period (if applicable) under this Master Confirmation. In the event that the initial hedge period, relevant period, calculation period or settlement valuation period in any other transaction overlaps with any Relevant Period, any Settlement Valuation Period (if applicable) or any Seller Termination Purchase Period (if applicable) under this Master Confirmation as a result of any postponement of the Scheduled Termination Date or extension of the Settlement Valuation Period pursuant to “Valuation Disruption” above or any analogous provision in such other transaction, Counterparty shall promptly amend such other transaction to avoid any such overlap. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) purchases of Shares that do not constitute “Rule 10b-18 purchases” under subparagraphs (ii) or (iii) of Rule 10b-18(a)(13), (ii) withholding of Shares to cover amounts payable (including tax liabilities and/or payment of exercise price) in respect of the exercise of employee stock options or the vesting of restricted stock or stock units, (iii) purchases of shares pursuant to the Issuer’s employee share purchase plan and (iv) privately negotiated (off-market) transactions by Counterparty, not involving any derivative instrument, to purchase Shares from existing holders of Shares in transactions that do not result

14


in, or relate to, purchases of Shares in the public market by such existing holders in connection with such transactions, shall, in each case, not be subject to this Section 6(b)(xiv).
(xv)
Counterparty shall, at least one day prior to the first day of the Calculation Period or the Settlement Valuation Period, if any, for any Transaction, notify JPMorgan of the total number of Shares (if any) purchased in Rule 10b-18 purchases of blocks pursuant to the once-a-week block exception set forth in paragraph (b)(4) of Rule 10b-18 under the Exchange Act (“Rule 10b-18”) by or for Counterparty or any of its “affiliated purchasers” (as defined in Rule 10b-18) during each of the four calendar weeks preceding such day and during the calendar week in which such day occurs (“Rule 10b-18 purchase” and “blocks” each being used as defined in Rule 10b-18), which notice shall be substantially in the form set forth in Schedule B hereto; provided, however, that with respect to a Settlement Valuation Period related to an Accelerated Termination Date, Counterparty need not deliver such notice until 8:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Exchange Business Day immediately following the date it receives an Accelerated Notice.
(xvi)
As of the Trade Date for each Transaction hereunder, there has not been any Merger Announcement (as defined below).
(xvii)
The assets of Counterparty do not constitute “plan assets” under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, the Department of Labor Regulations promulgated thereunder or similar law.
7.
Regulatory Disruption. In the event that JPMorgan determines in its reasonable discretion, based on advice of counsel, that it is advisable with regard to any legal, regulatory or self-regulatory requirements or related policies and procedures similarly applicable to transactions of the type of the Transactions contemplated hereby and consistently applied (whether or not such policies or procedures are imposed by law or have been voluntarily adopted by JPMorgan, and including, without limitation, Rule 10b-18, Rule 10b-5, Regulation 13D-G and Regulation 14E, “Requirements”), for JPMorgan to refrain from or decrease any market activity relating to any Transaction and maintaining or establishing a commercially reasonable hedge position on any Scheduled Trading Day during the Calculation Period or, if applicable, the Settlement Valuation Period for any Transaction, then JPMorgan may, in its commercially reasonable discretion, elect that a Market Disruption Event shall be deemed to have occurred on such Scheduled Trading Day with regard to such Requirements. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if, pursuant to this Section 7, the Calculation Period or, if applicable, the Settlement Valuation Period for any Transaction is suspended for five or more Scheduled Trading Days, Counterparty may, at its option, elect to terminate any Transaction, in which case “Cancellation and Payment” shall be deemed to apply, and JPMorgan shall determine the Cancellation Amount as the Determining Party; provided, however, that if Counterparty elects to terminate the Transaction pursuant to this Section 7, Counterparty will be deemed to represent that it is not aware of any material non-public information regarding Counterparty or the Shares.
8.
10b5-1 Plan. Counterparty represents, warrants and covenants to JPMorgan that:
(a)
Counterparty is entering into this Master Confirmation and each Transaction hereunder in good faith and not as part of a plan or scheme to evade the prohibitions of Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act (“Rule 10b5-1”) or any other antifraud or anti-manipulation provisions of the federal or applicable state securities laws and that it has not entered into or altered and will not enter into or alter any corresponding or hedging transaction or position with respect to the Shares. Counterparty acknowledges that it is the intent of the parties that each Transaction entered into under this Master Confirmation comply with the requirements of paragraphs (c)(1)(i)(A) and (B) of Rule 10b5-1 and each Transaction entered into under this Master Confirmation shall be interpreted to comply with the requirements of Rule 10b5-1(c).
(b)
During the Calculation Period and the Settlement Valuation Period, if any, for any Transaction and in connection with the delivery of any Alternative Delivery Units for any Transaction, JPMorgan (or its agent or Affiliate) may effect transactions in Shares in connection with such Transaction. The timing of such transactions by JPMorgan, the price paid or received per Share pursuant to such transactions and the manner

15


in which such transactions are made, including, without limitation, whether such transactions are made on any securities exchange or privately, shall be within the sole judgment of JPMorgan. Counterparty acknowledges and agrees that all such transactions shall be made in JPMorgan’s sole judgment and for JPMorgan’s own account.
(c)
Counterparty does not have, and shall not attempt to exercise, any control or influence over how, when or whether JPMorgan (or its agent or Affiliate) makes any “purchases or sales” (within the meaning of Rule 10b5-1(c)(1)(i)(B)(3)) in connection with any Transaction, including, without limitation, over how, when or whether JPMorgan (or its agent or Affiliate) enters into any hedging transactions. Counterparty represents and warrants that it has consulted with its own advisors as to the legal aspects of its adoption and implementation of this Master Confirmation and each Supplemental Confirmation under Rule 10b5-1.
(d)
Counterparty acknowledges and agrees that any amendment, modification, waiver or termination of this Master Confirmation or any Supplemental Confirmation must be effected in accordance with the requirements for the amendment or termination of a “plan” as defined in Rule 10b5-1(c). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, any such amendment, modification, waiver or termination shall be made in good faith and not as part of a plan or scheme to evade the prohibitions of Rule 10b-5, and no such amendment, modification or waiver shall be made at any time at which Counterparty is aware of any material non-public information regarding Counterparty or the Shares.
(e)
Counterparty shall not, directly or indirectly, communicate any information relating to the Shares or any Transaction (including, without limitation, any notices required by Section 10(a) hereof) to any employee of JPMorgan, other than as set forth in the Communications Procedures attached as Annex B hereto.
9.
Counterparty Purchases; JPMorgan Purchases. Counterparty (or any “affiliated purchaser” as defined in Rule 10b-18) shall not, without the prior written consent of JPMorgan, directly or indirectly (including, without limitation, by means of a derivative instrument) purchase, offer to purchase, place any bid or limit order that would effect a purchase of, or commence any tender offer relating to, any Shares (or equivalent interest, including, without limitation, a unit of beneficial interest in a trust or limited partnership or a depository share), listed contracts on the Shares or securities that are convertible into, or exchangeable or exercisable for Shares (including, without limitation, any Rule 10b-18 purchases of blocks (as defined in Rule 10b-18)) during any Relevant Period, any Settlement Valuation Period (if applicable) or any Seller Termination Purchase Period (if applicable), under this Master Confirmation. Notwithstanding the foregoing (i) purchases of Shares that do not constitute “Rule 10b-18 purchases” under subparagraphs (ii) or (iii) of Rule 10b-18(a)(13), (ii) withholding of Shares to cover amounts payable (including tax liabilities and/or payment of exercise price) in respect of the exercise of employee stock options or the vesting of restricted stock or stock units, (iii) purchases of shares pursuant to the Issuer’s employee share purchase plan and (iv) privately negotiated (off-market) transactions by Counterparty, not involving any derivative instrument, to purchase Shares from existing holders of Shares in transactions that do not result in, or relate to, purchases of Shares in the public market by such existing holders in connection with such transactions, shall, in each case, not be subject to this Section 9. With respect to purchases of Shares by JPMorgan in its capacity as Hedging Party in connection with any Transaction during the Calculation Period and Settlement Valuation Period, if any, for such Transaction (other than any purchases made by JPMorgan in such capacity in connection with dynamic hedge adjustments of JPMorgan’s exposure to any Transaction as a result of any equity optionality contained in such Transaction), JPMorgan will use good faith, commercially reasonable efforts to effect such purchases in a manner so that, if such purchases were made by Counterparty, they would meet the requirements of Rule 10b-18(b)(2), (3) and (4), and effect calculations in respect thereof, taking into account any applicable Securities and Exchange Commission no-action letters as appropriate and subject to any delays between the execution and reporting of a trade of the Shares on the Exchange and other circumstances beyond JPMorgan’s control. Notwithstanding the foregoing, JPMorgan shall not be responsible for any failure to comply with paragraph (b)(3) of Rule 10b-18 that would not have resulted if (i) a bid that was actually entered or deemed to be entered by or on behalf of Counterparty had instead been an “independent bid” for purposes of paragraph (b)(3) of Rule 10b-18, or (ii) a transaction that was actually executed or deemed to

16


be executed by or on behalf of Counterparty had instead been an “independent transaction” within the meaning of paragraph (b)(3) of Rule 10b-18.
10.
Special Provisions for Merger Transactions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in the Equity Definitions:
(a)
Counterparty agrees that it:
(i)
will not during the period commencing on the Trade Date for any Transaction and ending on the last day of the Relevant Period or, if applicable, the later of the last day of the Settlement Valuation Period and the last day of the Seller Termination Purchase Period, for such Transaction make, or, to the extent within its control, permit to be made, any public announcement (as defined in Rule 165(f) under the Securities Act) of any Merger Transaction (a “Merger Announcement”) unless such Merger Announcement is made prior to the opening or after the close of the regular trading session on the Exchange for the Shares;
(ii)
shall promptly (but in any event prior to the next opening of the regular trading session on the Exchange) notify JPMorgan following any such Merger Announcement that such Merger Announcement has been made; and
(iii)
shall promptly (but in any event prior to the next opening of the regular trading session on the Exchange) provide JPMorgan with written notice specifying (i) Counterparty’s average daily Rule 10b-18 Purchases (as defined in Rule 10b-18) during the three full calendar months immediately preceding the announcement date of any Merger Transaction or potential Merger Transaction that were not effected through JPMorgan or its Affiliates and (ii) the number of Shares purchased pursuant to the proviso in Rule 10b-18(b)(4) under the Exchange Act for the three full calendar months preceding the announcement date of any Merger Transaction or potential Merger Transaction. Such written notice shall be deemed to be a certification by Counterparty to JPMorgan that such information is true and correct. In addition, Counterparty shall promptly notify JPMorgan of the earlier to occur of the completion of such transaction and the completion of the vote by target shareholders.
(b)
Counterparty acknowledges that any such Merger Announcement or delivery of a notice with respect thereto may cause the terms of any Transaction to be adjusted or such Transaction to be terminated; accordingly, Counterparty acknowledges that its delivery of such notice must comply with the standards set forth in Section 8 hereof.
(c)
Upon the occurrence of any Merger Announcement (whether made by Counterparty or a third party), JPMorgan shall (i) make adjustments in good faith and in a commercially reasonable manner to the terms of any Transaction as appropriate to account for the economic effect on such Transaction of such Merger Announcement, including, without limitation, the Scheduled Termination Date or the Forward Price Adjustment Amount, and/or suspend the Calculation Period and/or any Settlement Valuation Period, provided that in no event will the Scheduled Termination Date be postponed more than nine Scheduled Trading Days, or (ii) if it determines that no such adjustment would produce a commercially reasonable result (including, without limitation, due to the inability to postpone the Scheduled Termination Date more than nine Scheduled Trading Days), treat the occurrence of such Merger Announcement as an Additional Termination Event with Counterparty as the sole Affected Party and the Transactions hereunder as the Affected Transactions and with the amount under Section 6(e) of the Agreement determined taking into account the fact that the Calculation Period or Settlement Valuation Period, as the case may be, had fewer Scheduled Trading Days than originally anticipated.
Merger Transaction” means any merger, acquisition or similar transaction involving a recapitalization as contemplated by Rule 10b-18(a)(13)(iv) under the Exchange Act, other than any such transaction in which the consideration consists solely of cash and for which there is no valuation period.

17


11.
Special Provisions for Acquisition Transaction Announcements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in the Equity Definitions:
(a)
If an Acquisition Transaction Announcement occurs on or prior to the Final Settlement Date for any Transaction, then the Calculation Agent shall make such adjustments to the exercise, settlement, payment or any other terms of such Transaction as the Calculation Agent determines appropriate (including, without limitation and for the avoidance of doubt, adjustments that would allow the Number of Shares to be Delivered to be less than zero), at such time or at multiple times as the Calculation Agent determines appropriate, to account for the economic effect on such Transaction of such event (including adjustments to account for changes in volatility, expected dividends, stock loan rate, value of any commercially reasonable Hedge Positions in connection with the Transaction and liquidity relevant to the Shares or to such Transaction from a commercially reasonable period of time prior to and including the date of the relevant Acquisition Transaction Announcement (or, in the case of a subsequent adjustment in respect of the same Acquisition Transaction Announcement, the effective date of the immediately preceding adjustment) to the date on which any adjustment (or subsequent adjustment, as applicable) is made). If an Acquisition Transaction Announcement occurs after the Trade Date, but prior to the First Acceleration Date of any Transaction, the First Acceleration Date shall be the date of such Acquisition Transaction Announcement. If the Number of Shares to be Delivered for any settlement of any Transaction is a negative number, then the terms of the Counterparty Settlement Provisions in Annex A hereto shall apply.
(b)
Acquisition Transaction Announcement” means (i) the announcement by any party thereto or Counterparty or any affiliate or representative of the foregoing of an Acquisition Transaction or an event that, if consummated, would result in an Acquisition Transaction and that the Calculation Agent determines is reasonably likely to be completed (which determination may take into account the effect of such announcement on the market price of the Shares or options relating thereto), (ii) an announcement by any party thereto or Counterparty or any affiliate or representative of the foregoing that Counterparty or any of its subsidiaries has entered into an agreement, a letter of intent or an understanding designed to result in an Acquisition Transaction, (iii) the announcement by Counterparty or any affiliate or representative of the Counterparty of the intention to solicit or enter into, or to explore strategic alternatives or other similar undertaking that may include, an Acquisition Transaction, (iv) any other announcement by any party thereto or Counterparty or any affiliate or representative of the foregoing that, in the reasonable judgment of the Calculation Agent, is reasonably likely to result in an Acquisition Transaction (which determination may take into account the effect of such announcement on the market price of the Shares or options relating thereto), or (v) any announcement of any change or amendment to any previous Acquisition Transaction Announcement (including any announcement of the abandonment of any such previously announced Acquisition Transaction, agreement, letter of intent, understanding or intention). For the avoidance of doubt, announcements as used in the definition of Acquisition Transaction Announcement refer to any public announcement whether made by the Issuer or a third party.
(c)
Acquisition Transaction” means (i) any Merger Event (for purposes of this definition the definition of Merger Event shall be read with the references therein to “100%” being replaced by “35%” and references to “50%” being replaced by “65%” and, for the avoidance of doubt, determined without regard to the language in the definition of “Merger Event” following the definition of “Reverse Merger” therein), Tender Offer or Merger Transaction or any other transaction involving the merger of Counterparty with or into any third party, (ii) the sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of Counterparty, (iii) a recapitalization, reclassification, binding share exchange or other similar transaction with respect to Counterparty, (iv) any acquisition by Counterparty or any of its subsidiaries where the aggregate consideration transferable by Counterparty or its subsidiaries exceeds 35% of the market capitalization of Counterparty, (v) any lease, exchange, transfer, disposition (including, without limitation, by way of spin-off or distribution) of assets (including, without limitation, any capital stock or other ownership interests in subsidiaries) or other similar event by Counterparty or any of its subsidiaries where the aggregate consideration transferable or receivable by or to Counterparty or its subsidiaries exceeds 35% of the market capitalization of Counterparty or (vi) any transaction in which Counterparty

18


or its board of directors has a legal obligation to make a recommendation to its shareholders in respect of such transaction (whether pursuant to Rule 14e-2 under the Exchange Act or otherwise).

If delivery of Shares or Alternative Delivery Units, as the case may be, pursuant to this Section 15 is to be made by Counterparty, paragraphs 2 through 7 of Annex A hereto shall apply as if (A) such delivery were a settlement of such Transaction to which Net Share Settlement applied, (B) the Cash Settlement Payment Date were the Early Termination Date or the date of early cancellation or termination, as the case may be, and (C) the Forward Cash Settlement Amount were equal to (x) zero minus (y) the Payment Amount owed by Counterparty. For the avoidance of doubt, if Counterparty validly elects for the provisions of this Section 15 relating to the delivery of Shares or Alternative Delivery Units, as the case may be, not to apply to any Payment Amount, the provisions of Article 12 of the Equity Definitions, or the provisions of Section 6(d)(ii) of the Agreement, as the case may be, shall apply. If delivery of Shares or Alternative Delivery Units, as the case may be, is to be made by JPMorgan pursuant to this

20


Section 15, the period during which JPMorgan purchases Shares or Alternative Delivery Units to fulfill its delivery obligations under this Section 15 shall be referred to as the “Seller Termination Purchase Period.”

The parties acknowledge and agree that in calculating (a) the Close-Out Amount pursuant to Section 6 of the Agreement and (b) the amount due upon cancellation or termination of any Transaction (whether in whole or in part) pursuant to Article 12 of the Equity Definitions as a result of an Extraordinary Event, JPMorgan shall, to the extent reasonably practicable, determine such amount based on (i) expected losses and gains assuming a commercially reasonable (including, without limitation, with regard to reasonable legal and regulatory guidelines) risk bid were used to determine loss (or gain) or (ii) the price at which one or more market participants would offer to sell to the Seller a block of Shares equal in number to a commercially reasonable hedge position in relation to the Transaction. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 6(d)(ii) of the Agreement or Article 12 of the Equity Definitions, all amounts calculated as being due in respect of an Early Termination Date under Section 6(e) of the Agreement or upon cancellation or termination of the relevant Transaction under Article 12 of the Equity Definitions will be payable on the day that notice of the amount payable is effective; provided that if Counterparty elects to receive or deliver Shares or Alternative Delivery Units in accordance with Section 15 hereof, such Shares or Alternative Delivery Units shall be delivered on a date selected by JPMorgan as promptly as practicable.
17.
Limit on Beneficial Ownership. Notwithstanding any other provisions hereof, JPMorgan may not be entitled to take delivery of any Shares deliverable hereunder to the extent (but only to the extent) that, after such receipt of any Shares hereunder, the Equity Percentage would exceed 9.0%. Any purported delivery hereunder shall be void and have no effect to the extent (but only to the extent) that, after such delivery the Equity Percentage would exceed 9.0%. If any delivery owed to JPMorgan hereunder is not made, in whole or in part, as a result of this provision, Counterparty’s obligation to make such delivery shall not be extinguished and Counterparty shall make such delivery as promptly as practicable after, but in no event later than one Business Day after, JPMorgan gives written notice to Counterparty that, after such delivery, the Equity Percentage would not exceed 9.0%. The “Equity Percentage” as of any day is the fraction, expressed as a percentage, (A) the numerator of which is the number of Shares that JPMorgan and any of its affiliates or any other person subject to aggregation with JPMorgan for purposes of the “beneficial ownership” test under Section 13 of the Exchange Act, or any “group” (within the meaning of Section 13) of which JPMorgan is or may be deemed to be a part beneficially owns (within the meaning of Section 13 of the Exchange Act), without duplication, on such day (or, to the extent that for any reason the equivalent calculation under Section 16 of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder results in a higher number, such higher number) and (B) the denominator of which is the number of Shares outstanding on such day.
18.
Maximum Share Delivery. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Master Confirmation, in no event shall JPMorgan be required to deliver any Shares, or any Shares or other securities comprising Alternative Delivery Units, in respect of any Transaction in excess of the Maximum Number of Shares set forth in the Supplemental Confirmation for such Transaction. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Master Confirmation, the Maximum Number of Shares shall be adjusted only for stock splits and reverse stock splits, and shall not otherwise be subject to any adjustments hereunder.
19.
Additional Termination Events.
(a)
The occurrence of an event described in paragraph III of Annex B hereto will constitute an Additional Termination Event, with Counterparty as the sole Affected Party and the Transactions specified in such paragraph III as the Affected Transactions.
(b)
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 6 of the Agreement, if a Termination Price is specified in the Supplemental Confirmation for any Transaction, then an Additional Termination Event will occur without any notice or action by JPMorgan or Counterparty, with Counterparty as the sole Affected Party and such Transactions as the Affected Transactions, if the closing price of the Shares on the Exchange is below such Termination Price for two consecutive Exchange Business Days, and such second Exchange Business Day will be the “Early Termination Date” for purposes of the Agreement.

20.
Non-confidentiality.

21.
[Reserved]
22.
Assignment and Transfer. JPMorgan may not assign any of its rights or duties hereunder without the prior written consent of Counterparty. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Master Confirmation to the contrary requiring or allowing JPMorgan to purchase, sell, receive or deliver any Shares or other securities to or from Counterparty, JPMorgan may designate any of its Affiliates to purchase, sell, receive or deliver such Shares or other securities and otherwise to perform JPMorgan’s obligations in respect of any Transaction and any such designee may assume such obligations. JPMorgan may assign the right to receive Settlement Shares to any third party who may legally receive Settlement Shares. JPMorgan shall be discharged of its obligations to Counterparty only to the extent of any such performance. For the avoidance of doubt, JPMorgan hereby acknowledges that notwithstanding any such designation hereunder, to the extent any of JPMorgan’s obligations in respect of any Transaction are not completed by its designee, JPMorgan shall be obligated to continue to perform or to cause any other of its designees to perform in respect of such obligations.
23.
Amendments to the Equity Definitions.
(a)
Section 11.2(a) of the Equity Definitions is hereby amended by deleting the words “a diluting or concentrative” and replacing them with the words “a material”; and adding the phrase “or such Transaction; provided that such event is not based on (a) an observable market, other than the market for Counterparty's own stock or (b) an observable index, other than an index calculated or measured solely by reference to Counterparty's own operations” at the end of the sentence.

(e)
Section 12.9(b)(v) of the Equity Definitions is hereby amended by deleting clause (X) in the final sentence; provided, however, that if Counterparty elects to terminate the Transaction pursuant to Section 12.9(b)(v)

25.
Status of Claims in Bankruptcy. JPMorgan acknowledges and agrees that neither this Master Confirmation nor any Supplemental Confirmation is intended to convey to JPMorgan rights against Counterparty with respect to any Transaction that are senior to the claims of common stockholders of Counterparty in any United States bankruptcy proceedings of Counterparty; provided that nothing herein shall limit or shall be deemed to limit JPMorgan’s right to pursue remedies in the event of a breach by Counterparty of its obligations and agreements with respect to any Transaction; provided further that nothing herein shall limit or shall be deemed to limit JPMorgan’s rights in respect of any transactions other than any Transaction.
26.
Wall Street Transparency and Accountability Act.

27.
Communications with Employees of J.P. Morgan Securities LLC. If Counterparty interacts with any employee of J.P. Morgan Securities LLC with respect to any Transaction, Counterparty is hereby notified that such employee will act solely as an authorized representative of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (and not as a representative of J.P. Morgan Securities LLC) in connection with such Transaction.
28.
Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH PARTY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING RELATING TO THE AGREEMENT, THIS MASTER CONFIRMATION, EACH SUPPLEMENTAL CONFIRMATION, THE TRANSACTIONS HEREUNDER AND ALL MATTERS ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE AGREEMENT, THIS MASTER CONFIRMATION AND ANY SUPPLEMENTAL CONFIRMATION AND THE TRANSACTIONS HEREUNDER. EACH PARTY (I) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF THE OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF SUCH A SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (II) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTY HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THE TRANSACTIONS, AS APPLICABLE, BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS PROVIDED HEREIN.

ANNEX A
COUNTERPARTY SETTLEMENT PROVISIONS
1.    The following Counterparty Settlement Provisions shall apply to any Transaction to the extent indicated under the Master Confirmation:
Settlement Currency:
USD
Settlement Method Election:
Applicable; provided that (i) Section 7.1 of the Equity Definitions is hereby amended by deleting the word “Physical” in the sixth line thereof and replacing it with the words “Net Share” and (ii) the Electing Party may make a settlement method election only if the Electing Party represents and warrants to JPMorgan in writing on the date it notifies JPMorgan of its election that, as of such date, the Electing Party is not aware of any material non-public information regarding Counterparty or the Shares and is electing the settlement method in good faith and not as part of a plan or scheme to evade compliance with the federal securities laws.
Electing Party:
Counterparty
Settlement Method Election Date:
The earlier of (i) the Scheduled Termination Date and (ii) the second Exchange Business Day immediately following the Accelerated Termination Date (in which case the election under Section 7.1 of the Equity Definitions shall be made no later than 10 minutes prior to the open of trading on the Exchange on such second Exchange Business Day), as the case may be.
Default Settlement Method:
Net Share Settlement
Forward Cash Settlement Amount:
An amount equal to (a) the Number of Shares to be Delivered, multiplied by (b) the Settlement Price.
Settlement Price:
An amount equal to the average of the VWAP Prices for the Exchange Business Days in the Settlement Valuation Period, plus a commercially reasonable commission to repurchase each Settlement Share, subject to Valuation Disruption as specified in the Master Confirmation (in each case, plus interest on such amount during the Settlement Valuation Period at the rate of interest for Counterparty’s long term, unsecured and unsubordinated indebtedness, as determined by the Calculation Agent).
Settlement Valuation Period:
A number of Scheduled Trading Days determined by JPMorgan as necessary to unwind its commercially reasonable hedge position, beginning on the Scheduled Trading Day immediately following the earlier of (i) the Scheduled Termination Date or (ii) the Exchange Business Day immediately following the Termination Date.
Cash Settlement:
If Cash Settlement is applicable, then Buyer shall pay to JPMorgan the absolute value of the Forward Cash Settlement Amount on the Cash Settlement Payment Date.


Annex A-1



Cash Settlement Payment Date:
The Exchange Business Day immediately following the last day of the Settlement Valuation Period.
Net Share Settlement Procedures:
If Net Share Settlement is applicable, Net Share Settlement shall be made in accordance with paragraphs 2 through 7 below.
2.    Net Share Settlement shall be made by delivery on the Cash Settlement Payment Date of a number of Shares satisfying the conditions set forth in paragraph 3 below (the “Registered Settlement Shares”), or a number of Shares not satisfying such conditions (the “Unregistered Settlement Shares”), in either case with a value equal to 101% (in the case of Registered Settlement Shares) or 105% (in the case of Unregistered Settlement Shares) of the absolute value of the Forward Cash Settlement Amount, with such Shares’ value based on the value thereof to JPMorgan (which value shall, in the case of Unregistered Settlement Shares, take into account a commercially reasonable illiquidity discount), in each case as determined by the Calculation Agent. If all of the conditions for delivery of either Registered Settlement Shares or Unregistered Settlement Shares have not been satisfied, Cash Settlement shall be applicable in accordance with paragraph 1 above notwithstanding Counterparty’s election of Net Share Settlement.
3.    Counterparty may only deliver Registered Settlement Shares pursuant to paragraph 2 above if:
(a)    a registration statement covering public resale of the Registered Settlement Shares by JPMorgan (the “Registration Statement”) shall have been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act and been declared or otherwise become effective on or prior to the date of delivery, and no stop order shall be in effect with respect to the Registration Statement; a printed prospectus relating to the Registered Settlement Shares (including, without limitation, any prospectus supplement thereto, the “Prospectus”) shall have been delivered to JPMorgan, in such quantities as JPMorgan shall reasonably have requested, on or prior to the date of delivery;
(b)    the form and content of the Registration Statement and the Prospectus (including, without limitation, any sections describing the plan of distribution) shall be satisfactory to JPMorgan;
(c)    as of or prior to the date of delivery, JPMorgan and its agents shall have been afforded a reasonable opportunity to conduct a due diligence investigation with respect to Counterparty customary in scope for underwritten offerings of equity securities and the results of such investigation are satisfactory to JPMorgan, in its discretion; and
(d)    as of the date of delivery, an agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) shall have been entered into with JPMorgan in connection with the public resale of the Registered Settlement Shares by JPMorgan substantially similar to underwriting agreements customary for underwritten offerings of equity securities, in form and substance satisfactory to JPMorgan, which Underwriting Agreement shall include, without limitation, provisions substantially similar to those contained in such underwriting agreements relating, without limitation, to the indemnification of, and contribution in connection with the liability of, JPMorgan and its Affiliates and the provision of customary opinions, accountants’ comfort letters and lawyers’ negative assurance letters.
4.    If Counterparty delivers Unregistered Settlement Shares pursuant to paragraph 2 above:
(a)    all Unregistered Settlement Shares shall be delivered to JPMorgan (or any Affiliate of JPMorgan designated by JPMorgan) pursuant to the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act provided by Section 4(a)(2) thereof;
(b)    as of or prior to the date of delivery, JPMorgan and any potential purchaser of any such shares from JPMorgan (or any Affiliate of JPMorgan designated by JPMorgan) identified by JPMorgan shall be afforded a commercially reasonable opportunity to conduct a due diligence investigation with respect to Counterparty customary in scope for private placements of equity securities (including, without limitation, the right to have made available to them for inspection all financial and other records, pertinent corporate documents and other information reasonably requested by them);


Annex A-2



(c)    as of the date of delivery, Counterparty shall enter into an agreement (a “Private Placement Agreement”) with JPMorgan (or any Affiliate of JPMorgan designated by JPMorgan) in connection with the private placement of such shares by Counterparty to JPMorgan (or any such Affiliate) and the private resale of such shares by JPMorgan (or any such Affiliate), substantially similar to private placement purchase agreements customary for private placements of equity securities, in form and substance commercially reasonably satisfactory to JPMorgan, which Private Placement Agreement shall include, without limitation, provisions substantially similar to those contained in such private placement purchase agreements relating, without limitation, to the indemnification of, and contribution in connection with the liability of, JPMorgan and its Affiliates and the provision of customary opinions, accountants’ comfort letters and lawyers’ negative assurance letters, and shall provide for the payment by Counterparty of all fees and expenses of JPMorgan (and any such Affiliate) in connection with such resale, including, without limitation, all fees and expenses of counsel for JPMorgan, and shall contain representations, warranties, covenants and agreements of Counterparty reasonably necessary or advisable to establish and maintain the availability of an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act for such resales; and
(d)    in connection with the private placement of such shares by Counterparty to JPMorgan (or any such Affiliate) and the private resale of such shares by JPMorgan (or any such Affiliate), Counterparty shall, if so requested by JPMorgan, prepare, in cooperation with JPMorgan, a private placement memorandum in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to JPMorgan.
5.    JPMorgan, itself or through an Affiliate (the “Selling Agent”) or any underwriter(s), will sell all, or such lesser portion as may be required hereunder, of the Registered Settlement Shares or Unregistered Settlement Shares and any Makewhole Shares (as defined below) (together, the “Settlement Shares”) delivered by Counterparty to JPMorgan pursuant to paragraph 6 below commencing on the Cash Settlement Payment Date and continuing until the date on which the aggregate Net Proceeds (as such term is defined below) of such sales, as determined by JPMorgan, is equal to the absolute value of the Forward Cash Settlement Amount (such date, the “Final Resale Date”). If the proceeds of any sale(s) made by JPMorgan, the Selling Agent or any underwriter(s), net of any fees and commissions (including, without limitation, underwriting or placement fees) customary for similar transactions under the circumstances at the time of the offering, together with carrying charges and expenses incurred in connection with the offer and sale of the Shares (including, without limitation, the covering of any over-allotment or short position (syndicate or otherwise)) (the “Net Proceeds”) exceed the absolute value of the Forward Cash Settlement Amount, JPMorgan will refund, in USD (or, at the election of Counterparty, a number of Shares with a value equal to such refund), such excess to Counterparty on the date that is three (3) Currency Business Days following the Final Resale Date, and, if any portion of the Settlement Shares remains unsold, JPMorgan shall return to Counterparty on that date such unsold Shares.
6.    If the Calculation Agent determines that the Net Proceeds received from the sale of the Registered Settlement Shares or Unregistered Settlement Shares or any Makewhole Shares, if any, pursuant to this paragraph 6 are less than the absolute value of the Forward Cash Settlement Amount (the amount in USD by which the Net Proceeds are less than the absolute value of the Forward Cash Settlement Amount being the “Shortfall” and the date on which such determination is made, the “Deficiency Determination Date”), Counterparty shall on the Exchange Business Day next succeeding the Deficiency Determination Date (the “Makewhole Notice Date”) deliver to JPMorgan, through the Selling Agent, a notice of Counterparty’s election that Counterparty shall either (i) pay an amount in cash equal to the Shortfall on the day that is one Currency Business Day after the Makewhole Notice Date, or (ii) deliver additional Shares. If Counterparty elects to deliver to JPMorgan additional Shares, then Counterparty shall deliver additional Shares in compliance with the terms and conditions of paragraph 3 or paragraph 4 above, as the case may be (the “Makewhole Shares”), on the first Clearance System Business Day which is also an Exchange Business Day following the Makewhole Notice Date in such number as the Calculation Agent reasonably believes would have a market value on that Exchange Business Day equal to the Shortfall. Such Makewhole Shares shall be sold by JPMorgan in accordance with the provisions above; provided that if the sum of the Net Proceeds from the sale of the originally delivered Shares and the Net Proceeds from the sale of any Makewhole Shares is less than the absolute value of the Forward Cash Settlement Amount then Counterparty shall, at its election, either make such cash payment or deliver to JPMorgan further Makewhole Shares until such Shortfall has been reduced to zero.
7.    Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall the aggregate number of Settlement Shares for any Transaction be greater than the Reserved Shares minus the amount of any Shares actually delivered by Counterparty under any other Transaction under this Master Confirmation (the result of such calculation, the “Capped Number”). Counterparty


Annex A-3



represents and warrants (which shall be deemed to be repeated on each day that a Transaction is outstanding) that the Capped Number is equal to or less than the number of Shares determined according to the following formula:
A – B
Where
A =     the number of authorized but unissued shares of Counterparty that are not reserved for future issuance on the date of the determination of the Capped Number; and
B =
the maximum number of Shares required to be delivered to third parties if Counterparty elected Net Share Settlement of all transactions in the Shares (other than Transactions in the Shares under this Master Confirmation) with all third parties that are then currently outstanding and unexercised.
Reserved Shares” means initially, 48,298,068 Shares. The Reserved Shares may be increased or decreased in a Supplemental Confirmation.
If at any time, as a result of this paragraph 7, Counterparty fails to deliver to JPMorgan any Settlement Shares, Counterparty shall, to the extent that Counterparty has at such time authorized but unissued Shares not reserved for other purposes, promptly notify JPMorgan thereof and deliver to JPMorgan a number of Shares not previously delivered as a result of this paragraph 7. Counterparty agrees to use its best efforts to cause the number of authorized but unissued Shares to be increased, if necessary, to an amount sufficient to permit Counterparty to fulfill its obligation to deliver any Settlement Shares.


Annex A-4



ANNEX B
COMMUNICATIONS PROCEDURES

[__________], 20[__]

I.    Introduction
Trinity Industries, Inc. (“Counterparty”) and JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, London Branch (“JPMorgan”) have adopted these communications procedures (the “Communications Procedures”) in connection with entering into the Master Confirmation (the “Master Confirmation”), dated as of [__________], 20[__], between JPMorgan and Counterparty relating to Uncollared Accelerated Share Repurchase transactions. These Communications Procedures supplement, form part of, and are subject to the Master Confirmation.
II.    Communications Rules
For each Transaction, from the Trade Date for such Transaction until the date all payments or deliveries of Shares have been made with respect to such Transaction, Counterparty and its Employees and Designees shall not engage in any Program-Related Communication with, or disclose any Material Non-Public Information to, any EDG Trading Personnel. Except as set forth in the preceding sentence, the Master Confirmation shall not limit Counterparty and its Employees and Designees in their communication with Affiliates and Employees of JPMorgan, including, without limitation, Employees who are EDG Permitted Contacts.
III.    Termination
If, in the sole judgment of any EDG Trading Personnel or any Affiliate or Employee of JPMorgan participating in any Communication with Counterparty or any Employee or Designee of Counterparty, such Communication would not be permitted by these Communications Procedures, such EDG Trading Personnel or Affiliate or Employee of JPMorgan shall immediately terminate such Communication. In such case, or if such EDG Trading Personnel or Affiliate or Employee of JPMorgan determines following completion of any Communication with Counterparty or any Employee or Designee of Counterparty that such Communication was not permitted by these Communications Procedures, such EDG Trading Personnel or such Affiliate or Employee of JPMorgan shall promptly consult with his or her supervisors and with counsel for JPMorgan regarding such Communication.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Trinity Industries, Inc. Announces Accelerated Share Repurchase Program and
Updates 2019 Earnings Guidance

DALLAS - November 16, 2018 - Trinity Industries, Inc. (NYSE: TRN) (“Trinity” or the “Company”) announced today that the Company has entered into an accelerated share repurchase (“ASR”) program with JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association (“JPMorgan”) to repurchase $350 million of its common stock. The accelerated share repurchase program will complete Trinity’s current share repurchase authorization for an aggregate of $500 million of its common stock. Trinity will fund the accelerated share repurchase with proceeds received from an increase in borrowing under the Amended and Restated Term Loan Agreement of Trinity Rail Leasing 2017 LLC.

Additionally, today the Company updated its full year 2019 earnings per share guidance to $1.15 to $1.35 from the range of $0.90 to $1.10, which was previously provided with the third quarter 2018 earnings announcement. The guidance was updated due to the projected impact of the ASR program and orders received for new railcars since the issuance of the prior guidance. The Company now expects 2019 railcar deliveries of 23,500 to 25,500 as compared to the prior guidance of 22,500 to 24,000 railcars.

The Company’s previous earnings guidance provided in the third quarter 2018 quarterly earnings announcement did not include the ASR program announced today. The ASR program is expected to benefit 2019 earnings per share by approximately $0.13, based on the closing stock price on November 15, 2018. Through September 30, 2018, Trinity has repurchased approximately 4.3 million shares for a total of $150 million under the current authorization. As of October 17, 2018, the company had total shares outstanding of approximately 146.3 million shares.

“The accelerated share repurchase program and amended leased railcar financing are consistent with Trinity’s goal to optimize its capital structure and improve returns through opportunistic investment in the business, while returning value to shareholders,” said Tim Wallace, Trinity’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President.

Under the terms of the ASR, Trinity has agreed to repurchase from JPMorgan $350 million of its common stock, with an initial delivery of approximately 12.9 million shares, representing approximately 80% of the notional amount of the ASR based on the closing price of $21.74 on November 15, 2018. The final number of shares to be repurchased will be based on the average of Trinity’s daily volume-weighted average stock price, less a discount, during the term of the ASR program, which is expected to be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2019. The ASR program is expected to commence on Monday, November 19, 2018.

The Company amended a previous term loan agreement of Trinity Rail Leasing 2017 LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("TRL 2017") and a limited purpose, indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, owned through Trinity Industry Leasing Company. TRL 2017 originally issued $302.4 million of promissory notes (the "2017 Promissory Notes") on May 15, 2017, due May 15, 2024. The 2017 Promissory Notes are obligations of TRL 2017, secured by a portfolio of railcars and operating leases thereon, certain cash reserves, and other assets, and are non-recourse to Trinity. TRL 2017 has entered into an Amended and Restated Term Loan Agreement, which has increased the amount of the 2017 Promissory Notes to $663.0





million. Additionally, TRL 2017 has entered into an interest rate hedging agreement on which it pays a fixed rate of interest on 60% of the outstanding principal amount. The remaining 40% of the outstanding principal amount bears interest at LIBOR plus a margin for a combined all-in current interest rate of 4.3%, payable monthly and are now due November 8, 2025.
