MATURITY REDEMPTION AMOUNT CALCULATION

The amount payable on the Notes if they are automatically called by the Bank or at maturity will be calculated by the Calculation Agent in accordance with the formulae below:


i.             If the Final Unit Price on an Autocall Valuation Date or the Final Valuation Date is greater than or equal to the Autocall Price, the Maturity Redemption Amount will equal:

Principal Amount

ii.            If the Final Unit Price on the Final Valuation Date is greater than the Barrier Price, the Maturity Redemption Amount will equal:

Principal Amount

iii.           If the Final Unit Price on the Final Valuation Date is equal to or less than the Barrier Price, the Maturity Redemption Amount will equal:

Principal Amount + (Principal Amount x Index Return)

Where:

Autocall Price: 110% of the Initial Unit Price;

Barrier Price: 65% of the Initial Unit Price;

The Maturity Redemption Amount will be less than the Principal Amount invested by an investor if the Final Unit Price on the Final Valuation Date is equal to or less than the Barrier Price. The return on the Notes will not reflect the total return that an investor would receive if such investor owned the ETF.

The Maturity Redemption Amount will be subject to a minimum principal repayment of $1.00 per Note.
