     The following information supplements the Preliminary Prospectus Supplement, dated December 10, 2007, to the Prospectus, dated January 9, 2006, filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(5).

7.75% Series R Non-Cumulative Perpetual Convertible Preferred Stock
Aggregate liquidation preference offered:  
$3,000,000,000 of liquidation preference
Number of shares issued:  
Liquidation preference per share:

Dividend payment dates:  
March 15, June 15, September 15, and December 15 of each year (or the following business day if such date is not a business day), commencing on March 15, 2008.
NYSE closing price of Issuer’s common stock on December 11, 2007:  
$17.42 per share
Conversion right:  
Each share of the Series R Preferred Stock may be converted at any time, at the option of the holder, into 47.0535 shares of common stock (which reflects an approximate initial conversion price of $21.25 per share of common stock) plus cash in lieu of fractional shares, subject to anti-dilution adjustments.
Mandatory conversion at Issuer’s option:  
On or after December 18, 2012, the Issuer may, at its



option, at any time or from time to time cause some or all of the Series R Preferred Stock to be converted into shares of common stock at the then applicable conversion rate if, for 20 trading days within any period of 30 consecutive trading days, including the last trading day of such period, ending on the trading day preceding the date we give notice of mandatory conversion, the closing price of common stock exceeds 130% of the then applicable conversion price of the Series R Preferred Stock.
Conversion upon fundamental change:  
If the reference price in connection with a fundamental change is less than the applicable conversion price, each share of Series R Preferred Stock may be converted during the period beginning on the effective date of the fundamental change and ending on the date that is 30 days after the effective date of such fundamental change at an adjusted conversion price equal to the greater of (1) the reference price and (2) $8.71, which is 50% of the closing price of the Issuer’s common stock on the date of the prospectus supplement, subject to adjustment. If the reference price is less than $8.71, holders will receive a maximum of 114.8106 shares of common stock per share of Series R Preferred Stock, subject to adjustment, which may result in a holder receiving value that is less than the liquidation preference of the Series R Preferred Stock.

The following table sets forth the number of make-whole shares per share of Series R Preferred Stock for each stock price and effective date set forth below:

     The exact stock price and effective dates may not be set forth on the table, in which case:
    if the stock price is between two stock price amounts on the table or the effective date is between two dates on the table, the number of make-whole shares will be determined by straight-line interpolation between the number of make-whole shares set forth for the higher and lower stock price amounts and the two dates, as applicable, based on a 365-day year;
    if the stock price is in excess of $150.00 per share (subject to adjustment), no make-whole shares will be issued upon conversion of the Series R Preferred Stock; and
    if the stock price is less than $17.42 per share (subject to adjustment), no make-whole shares will be issued upon conversion of the Series R Preferred Stock.
