not the Registrar, the Issuers shall furnish to the Trustee at least seven
Business Days before each interest payment date and at such other times as the

        appointed by the Issuers within 120 days after the date of such notice
        from the Depositary; or

                      (ii) the Issuers in their sole discretion determine that
