The terms of this issue have changed, effective 2006-08-01, in accordance with the prospectus and the resetting of the coupon.
The coupon rate is now 4.65% until 2011-08-01. HIMIPref assumes that on that date it will become a Ratchet-Rate issue, since the company has discretion as to the fixed rate to which the issue will be reset.
No shares were converted to the Ratchet-Rate preferreds, since the holders of less than 2-million shares wished to exercise that privilege.
The old HIMIPref security code for this issue was A38004; following a “term change” reorganization, the new code is A38005.
