UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION

Designated Officers’ Certificate

November 13, 2017

We, David R. Whitehouse, Corporate Vice President, Treasurer of United Technologies Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “ Company ”), and Akhil Johri, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer of the Company, pursuant to authority granted by resolutions (the “ Resolutions ”) of the Board of Directors of the Company adopted December 14, 2016, approve the Underwriting Agreement, dated November 6, 2017 (the “ Underwriting Agreement ”), and the Pricing Agreement, dated November 6, 2017 (the “ Pricing Agreement ”), each between the Company and Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, Goldman, Sachs & Co. LLC, BNP Paribas and Mizuho International plc, as Underwriters, attached hereto as Exhibits A and B, respectively; and authorize the issue and sale on or after the date hereof of the Company’s Securities pursuant to the Amended and Restated Indenture dated as of May 1, 2001, between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., successor to The Bank of New York, as Trustee (the “ Indenture ”), with the following terms:

(a) The Securities hereby being authorized shall be known and designated as the Floating Rate Notes due 2019 (the “ Notes ”). The Notes shall be issued only in minimum denominations of €100,000 and in integral multiples of €1,000 in excess thereof.

(b) The aggregate principal amount of the Notes that may be authenticated and delivered under the Indenture shall be limited to €750,000,000 (except as noted in Section 301(2) of the Indenture), subject to reopening pursuant to the last sentence of the penultimate paragraph of Section 301 of the Indenture.

(c) The public offering price per Note shall be 100.400% of the principal amount of the Notes. The proceeds to the Company (after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions but before deducting certain expenses payable by the Company) shall be 100.20% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes.

(d) The Notes shall be issued as permanent global notes without coupons (each, a “ Global Note ”), registered in the name of a nominee of, and deposited with, a common depositary for the accounts of Clearstream Banking, société anonyme (“ Clearstream ”) and Euroclear Bank S.A/N.V. (“ Euroclear ”). The Bank of New York Mellon, London Branch, shall initially serve as the Common Depositary for such Global Notes. A Global Note shall be exchangeable for definitive Notes in registered form, bearing interest at the same rate, having the same date of issuance, Stated Maturity and other terms and of differing denominations aggregating a like amount, only if (i) the depositary for any of the Global Notes (a) notifies the Company that it is unwilling or unable to continue as depositary or clearing system for such Global Note or (b) ceases to be a “clearing agency” registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as


amended, and in either event the Company is unable to find a qualified replacement within 90 days, (ii) the Company in its sole discretion determines that all such Global Notes shall be exchangeable for definitive Notes in registered form or (iii) there has occurred and is continuing an Event of Default with respect to the Notes and the depositary notifies the Trustee of its decision to exchange such Global Notes for definitive Notes in registered form. Such definitive Notes shall be registered in the names of the owners of the beneficial interests in such Global Note as provided by Euroclear and Clearstream’s relevant participants (as such participants are identified by Euroclear and Clearstream). Subject to the foregoing, each Global Note shall not be exchangeable, except for a Global Note of like denomination to be registered in the name of the Common Depositary or its nominee.

(e) The principal of the Notes shall be payable on November 13, 2019, subject to the provisions of the Indenture respecting acceleration.

(f) Reserved.

(g) The amount of interest for each day that the Notes are outstanding (the “ Daily Interest Amount ”) will be calculated by dividing the floating interest rate in effect for such day by 360 and multiplying the result by the principal amount of the Notes (known as the “Actual/360” day count). The amount of interest to be paid on the Notes for any interest period will be calculated by adding the Daily Interest Amounts for each day in such interest period. The interest rate on the Notes for each day of an interest period will be a rate equal to EURIBOR (as defined in the Notes) as determined on the Interest Determination Date plus 0.15% per year, provided , however , that in no event shall the interest rate be less than zero, as more fully set forth in the Notes. Interest will be payable on the Notes quarterly in arrears on February 13, May 13, August 13 and November 13 of each year, and on the Maturity Date, commencing on February 13, 2018 (each a “ Floating Rate Interest Payment Date ”), to the Person in whose name such Note is registered on the Record Date; provided , however , that interest payable on the Maturity Date or any Redemption Date will be payable to the Person to whom the principal of such notes is payable. If a Floating Rate Interest Payment Date (other than the Maturity Date or any earlier Redemption Date) is not a Business Day, then such Floating Rate Interest Payment Date shall be the next succeeding Business Day, unless the next succeeding Business Day is in the next succeeding calendar month, in which case such Floating Rate Interest Payment Date shall be the immediately preceding Business Day. If the Maturity Date or any earlier Redemption Date of the Notes falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment of principal and interest, if any, otherwise payable on such date will be postponed to the next succeeding Business Day, and no interest on such payment will accrue from and after the Maturity Date or earlier Redemption Date, as applicable.

(h) The Notes shall be redeemable in whole, but not in part, at the option of the Company at any time in the event of certain developments affecting U.S. taxation, as provided in the Notes.

(i) The Notes are not subject to any mandatory redemption provision.

 

2


(j) The Notes shall not be subject to any sinking fund or analogous provision and shall not be repayable at the option of a Holder thereof prior to maturity.

(k) The provisions of Section 1402 and Section 1403 of the Indenture relating to defeasance and covenant defeasance, respectively, shall apply to the Notes. Pursuant to Section 1404(5) and Section 1404(6) of the Indenture, any such defeasance or covenant defeasance shall be conditioned on receipt of an Opinion of Counsel relating to the federal income tax consequences of such defeasance or covenant defeasance.

(l) The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. will serve as the Trustee and Security Registrar.

(m) The Paying Agent and the Calculation Agent for the Notes will be The Bank of New York Mellon, London Branch. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon notice to the Trustee, the Company may change the Paying Agent, the Security Registrar and/or the Calculation Agent.

(n) The Company will be obligated to pay additional amounts on the Notes as set forth in the Notes (such amounts, the “ Additional Amounts ”).

(o) Payment of the principal of and premium, if any, and interest on the Notes will be made at the office or agency of the Company maintained for that purpose in the City of London, England, which shall be initially the corporate trust office of The Bank of New York Mellon, London Branch, located at One Canada Square, London, England E14 5AL; provided , however , that at the option of the Company payment of principal or interest may be made by wire transfer to an account designated by the Person entitled thereto or by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto as such address shall appear in the Security Register, in either case in same-day funds.

(p) Payments of principal, interest and Additional Amounts, if any, in respect of the Notes will be payable in euro. If the euro is unavailable to the Company due to the imposition of exchange controls or other circumstances beyond the Company’s control (including the dissolution of the euro) or if the euro is no longer being used by the then member states of the European 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 applicable Notes will be made in U.S. dollars until the euro is again available to the Company or so used. The amount payable on any date in euro will be converted into U.S. dollars at the rate mandated by the U.S. Federal Reserve Board as of the close of business on the second Business Day prior to the relevant payment date or, in the event the U.S. Federal Reserve Board has not mandated a rate of conversion, on the basis of the then most recent U.S. dollar/euro exchange rate available on or prior to the second Business Day prior to the relevant payment date as determined by the Company in the Company’s sole discretion. Any payment in respect of the Notes so made in U.S. dollars will not constitute an Event of Default under the Notes or the Indenture. Neither the Trustee nor the Paying Agent shall have any responsibility for any calculation or conversion in connection with the foregoing.

 

3


(q) Solely with respect to the Notes:

Business Day ” means each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday which is not a day on which banking institutions are authorized or obligated by law or executive order to be closed in New York City or London and which is a day on which the Trans-European Automated Real-time Gross Settlement Express Transfer system (the “ TARGET2 system ”), or any successor thereto, operates.

Interest Determination Date ” means, for the initial interest period, November 9, 2017 and for any other interest period, the second TARGET2 system day preceding the relevant Interest Reset Date (as defined in the Notes).

Record Date ” means the close of business on the date that is fifteen calendar days prior to the date on which interest is scheduled to be paid, regardless of whether such date is a Business Day; provided that if any of the notes are held by a securities depositary in book-entry form, the Record Date for such Notes will be the close of business on the Business Day (for this purpose a day on which Clearstream and Euroclear are open for business) immediately preceding the date on which interest is scheduled to be paid.

TARGET2 system day ” is any day on which the TARGET2 system, or any successor thereto, operates.

UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation (herein called the “ Company ”, which term includes any successor corporation under the Indenture hereinafter referred to), for value received, hereby promises to pay to The Bank of New York Depository (Nominees) Limited, the registered Holder hereof, as nominee of The Bank of New York Mellon, London Branch as common depositary for Euroclear Bank, S.A./N.V. (“ Euroclear ”) and Clearstream Banking, société anonyme (“ Clearstream ”), the principal sum of SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILLION EUROS (€750,000,000), or such other principal sum as shall be specified in the Schedule of Increases or Decreases in Global Security attached hereto, on November 13, 2019 (the “ Maturity Date ”), and to pay interest thereon from November 13, 2017 or from the most recent Interest Payment Date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, quarterly in arrears on February 13, May 13, August 13 and November 13 of each year, and on the Maturity Date, commencing on February 13, 2018 (each an “ Interest Payment Date ”), at the rate, reset quarterly, equal to EURIBOR plus 0.150% (as determined by The Bank of New York Mellon, London Branch (in such capacity, the “ Calculation Agent ”), in accordance with the next succeeding paragraphs) to the Person in whose name this Security (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered on the Regular Record Date; provided, however , that interest payable on the Maturity Date or any Redemption Date will be payable to


the Person to whom the principal of this Security is payable. If an Interest Payment Date (other than the Maturity Date or any earlier Redemption Date) is not a Business Day, then such Interest Payment Date shall be the next succeeding Business Day, unless the next succeeding Business Day is in the next succeeding calendar month, in which case such Interest Payment Date shall be the immediately preceding Business Day. If the Maturity Date or any earlier Redemption Date falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment of principal and interest, if any, otherwise payable on such date will be postponed to the next succeeding Business Day, and no interest on such payment will accrue from and after the Maturity Date or earlier Redemption Date, as applicable.    Any such interest not so punctually paid or duly provided for will forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on such Regular Record Date and may either be paid to the Person in whose name this Security (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest to be fixed by the Trustee, notice whereof shall be given to Holders of Securities of this series not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date, or be paid at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which such Securities may be listed, all as more fully provided in said Indenture. This Security is a Security for purposes of the Indenture.

For purposes of this Security:

Business Day ” means each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday which is not a day on which banking institutions are authorized or obligated by law or executive order to be closed in New York City or London and which is a day on which the Trans-European Automated Real-time Gross Settlement Express Transfer system (the “ TARGET2 system ”), or any successor thereto, operates.

Regular Record Date ” means the close of business on the date that is fifteen calendar days prior to the date on which interest is scheduled to be paid, regardless of whether such date is a Business Day; provided that if this Security is held by a securities depositary in book-entry form, the Regular Record Date for this Security will be the close of business on the Business Day (for this purpose a day on which Clearstream and Euroclear are open for business) immediately preceding the date on which interest is scheduled to be paid.

This Security will bear interest for each Interest Period at a rate determined by the Calculation Agent. The interest rate on this Security for each day of an Interest Period will be a rate equal to EURIBOR as determined on the Interest Determination Date plus 0.15% per year, provided, however , that in no event shall the interest rate be less than zero.

The interest rate for each Interest Period will be reset on February 13, May 13, August 13 and November 13 of each year (each such date, an “ Interest Reset Date ”), and will be set for the initial Interest Period on November 13, 2017. If any Interest Reset Date would otherwise be a day that is not a Business Day, such Interest Reset Date shall be the next succeeding Business Day, unless the next succeeding Business Day is in the next succeeding calendar month, in which case such Interest Reset Date shall be the immediately preceding Business Day.

The initial Interest Period for this Security will be the period from and including November 13, 2017 to but excluding the first Interest Reset Date. Thereafter, an “ Interest Period ” shall mean

 

2


the period from and including an Interest Reset Date to but excluding the next succeeding Interest Reset Date and, in the case of the last such period, from and including the Interest Reset Date immediately preceding the Maturity Date or any earlier Redemption Date, as the case may be, to but excluding such Maturity Date or earlier Redemption Date.

The “ Interest Determination Date ” for the initial Interest Period is November 9, 2017 and for any other Interest Period will be the second TARGET2 system day preceding the relevant Interest Reset Date.

A “ TARGET2 system day ” is any day on which the TARGET2 system, or any successor thereto, operates.

Promptly upon determination, the Calculation Agent will inform the Company of the interest rate for the next Interest Period. Absent manifest error, the determination of the interest rate by the Calculation Agent shall be binding and conclusive on the holders of this Security, the Trustee and the Company. So long as EURIBOR is required to be determined with respect to this Security, there will at all times be a Calculation Agent. In the event that any then acting Calculation Agent shall be unable or unwilling to act, or that such Calculation Agent shall fail duly to establish EURIBOR for any Interest Period, or that the Company proposes to remove such Calculation Agent, the Company shall appoint another Person which is a bank, trust company, investment banking firm or other financial institution to act as the Calculation Agent.

On any Interest Determination Date, EURIBOR will be equal to the offered rate for deposits in euro having an index maturity of three months as such rate appears on the Reuters screen EURIBOR01 page at approximately 11:00 a.m., Brussels time, on such Interest Determination Date. “ Reuters screen EURIBOR01 page ” means the display designated on page “ EURIBOR01 ” on Reuters (or such other page as may replace the EURIBOR01 page on that service or any successor service for the purpose of displaying euro-zone interbank offered rates for euro-denominated deposits of major banks).

If no offered rate appears on the Reuters screen EURIBOR01 page on an interest determination date at approximately 11:00 a.m., Brussels time, then the Company will select four major banks in the euro-zone interbank market and shall request each of their principal euro-zone offices to provide to the Calculation Agent a quotation of the rate at which three-month deposits in euros in amounts of at least €1,000,000 are offered by it to prime banks in the euro-zone interbank market, on that date and at that time, that is representative of single transactions at that time. If at least two quotations are provided, EURIBOR will be the arithmetic average of the quotations provided. Otherwise, the Company will select three major banks in the euro-zone and shall request each of them to provide to the Calculation Agent a quotation of the rate offered by them at approximately 11:00 a.m., Brussels time, on the Interest Determination Date for loans in euros to leading European banks having an index maturity of three months for the applicable Interest Period in an amount of at least €1,000,000 that is representative of single transactions at that time. If three quotations are provided, EURIBOR will be the arithmetic average of the quotations provided. Otherwise, the rate of EURIBOR for the next Interest Period will be set equal to the rate of EURIBOR for the then current Interest Period.

 

3


The amount of interest for each day that this Security is outstanding (the “ Daily Interest Amount ”) will be calculated by dividing the interest rate in effect on this Security for such day by 360 and multiplying the result by the principal amount of this Security (known as the “Actual/360” day count). The amount of interest to be paid on this Security for any Interest Period will be calculated by adding the Daily Interest Amounts for each day in such Interest Period.

The interest rate on this Security will be limited to the maximum rate permitted by New York law, as the same may be modified by United States law of general application.

All percentages resulting from any calculation of any interest rate for this Security will be rounded, if necessary, to the nearest one hundred thousandth of a percentage point, with five one-millionths of a percentage point rounded upward (e.g., 9.876545% (or .09876545) would be rounded to 9.87655% (or .0987655)), and all euro amounts will be rounded to the nearest cent, with one-half cent being rounded upward.

Upon prior written request from any Holder, the Calculation Agent will provide the interest rate in effect on this Security for the current Interest Period and, if it has been determined, the interest rate to be in effect for the next Interest Period.

Payment of the principal of and premium, if any, and interest on this Security will be made at the office or agency of the Company maintained for that purpose in the City of London, England, which shall be initially the corporate trust office of The Bank of New York Mellon,London Branch, located at One Canada Square, London, England E14 5AL; provided, however , that at the option of the Company payment of principal or interest may be made by wire transfer to an account designated by the Person entitled thereto or by check mailed to the address of the Person entitled thereto as such address shall appear in the Security Register, in either case in same-day funds.

All payments on this Security will be payable in euro. If the euro is unavailable to the Company due to the imposition of exchange controls or other circumstances beyond the Company’s control (including the dissolution of the euro) or if the euro is no longer being used by the then member states of the European 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 this Security will be made in U.S. dollars until the euro is again available to the Company or so used. The amount payable on any date in euro will be converted into U.S. dollars at the rate mandated by the U.S. Federal Reserve Board as of the close of business on the second Business Day prior to the relevant payment date or, in the event the U.S. Federal Reserve Board has not mandated a rate of conversion, on the basis of the then most recent U.S. dollar/euro exchange rate available on or prior to the second Business Day prior to the relevant payment date as determined by the Company in the Company’s sole discretion. Any payment in respect of this Security so made in U.S. dollars will not constitute an Event of Default with respect to the Securities of this series or under the Indenture. Neither the Trustee nor the Paying Agent shall have any responsibility for any calculation or conversion in connection with the foregoing.

 

4


euro ” and “ ” mean the lawful currency of the member states of the European Monetary Union that have adopted or that adopt the single currency in accordance with the treaty establishing the European Community, as amended by the Treaty on European Union.

Reference is hereby made to the further provisions of this Security set forth on the reverse hereof, which further provisions shall for all purposes have the same effect as if set forth at this place.

Unless the certificate of authentication hereon has been executed by the Trustee referred to on the reverse hereof by manual signature, this Security shall not be entitled to any benefit under the Indenture or be valid or obligatory for any purpose.

This Security shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of the State of New York.

[REVERSE OF SECURITY]

This Security is one of a duly authorized issue of securities of the Company (herein called the “ Securities ”), issued and to be issued in one or more series under an Amended and Restated Indenture, dated as of May 1, 2001, as it may be supplemented from time to time (herein called the “ Indenture ”), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. (formerly The Bank of New York Trust Company, N.A.), as Trustee (successor to The Bank of New York) (herein called the “ Trustee ”, which term includes any successor trustee under the Indenture with respect to the series of which this Security is a part), to which Indenture reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Company, the Trustee and the Holders of the Securities and of the terms upon which the Securities are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered. This Security is one of the series designated on the face hereof. The Indenture does not limit the aggregate principal amount of the Securities or the Securities of this series that may be issued thereunder. Additional Securities of this series may be issued from time to time hereafter; provided that any such additional Securities that are not fungible with this Security for U.S. federal income tax purposes will have a separate CUSIP, ISIN and other identifying number than this Security.

Notwithstanding Section 1104 of the Indenture, the notice of any redemption referred to herein need not set forth the Redemption Price therefor but only the manner of calculation thereof. Promptly after the calculation of such Redemption Price, the Company shall give the Trustee notice thereof and the Trustee shall not be responsible for such calculation.

All payments of principal and interest in respect of the Securities of this series by the Company or a Paying Agent on the Company’s behalf will be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any present or future taxes, duties, assessments or other similar governmental charges imposed or levied by the United States or any political subdivision or taxing authority of or in the United States (collectively, “ Taxes ”), unless such withholding or deduction is required by law. In the event such withholding or deduction for Taxes is required by law, subject to the limitations described below, the Company will pay to any Non-U.S. Holder (as defined below) or any foreign partnership such Additional Amounts as may be necessary to ensure that the net amount received by such Person, after withholding or deduction for such Taxes, will be equal to the amount such Person would have received in the absence of such withholding or deduction. However, no Additional Amounts shall be payable with respect to any Taxes if such Taxes are imposed, withheld, deducted or levied for reasons unrelated to the Holder’s or beneficial owner’s ownership or disposition of Securities of this series, nor shall Additional Amounts be payable for or on account of:

(1) any Taxes which would not have been so imposed, withheld, deducted or levied but for:

(i) the existence of any present or former connection between the Holder or beneficial owner (or between a fiduciary, settlor, beneficiary, member or shareholder or other equity owner of, or a Person having a power over, such Holder or beneficial owner, if such Holder or beneficial owner is an estate, a trust, a limited liability company, a partnership, a corporation or other entity) and the United States, including, without limitation, such Holder or beneficial owner (or

 

6


such fiduciary, settlor, beneficiary, member, shareholder or other equity owner or Person having such a power) being or having been a citizen or resident or treated as a resident of the United States, being or having been engaged in a trade or business in the United States, being or having been present in the United States, or having or having had a permanent establishment in the United States;

(ii) the failure of the Holder or beneficial owner to comply with any applicable certification, information, documentation or other reporting requirement, if compliance is required under the tax laws and regulations of the United States or any political subdivision or taxing authority of or in the United States to establish entitlement to a partial or complete exemption from such Taxes (including, but not limited to, the requirement to provide Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, Form W-8BEN-E, Form W-8ECI, Form W-8IMY (and related documentation) or any subsequent versions thereof or successor thereto); or
