**Under Rule 15c6-1 of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade the Notes prior to the second business day prior to the settlement date will be required, because the Notes initially will settle in T+6, to specify an alternate settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. If you wish to trade the Notes prior to the second business day prior to the settlement date, you should consult your own advisors.

MiFID II professionals/ECPs-only / No PRIIPs KID — Manufacturer target market (MiFID II product governance) is eligible counterparties and professional clients only (all distribution channels). No PRIIPs key information document (KID) has been prepared as the Notes are not available to retail investors in the EEA.
In the United Kingdom, this final term sheet is for distribution only to persons who (i) have professional experience in matters relating to investments and qualifying as investment professionals falling within Article 19(5) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005 (as amended, the “Financial Promotion Order”), (ii) are persons falling within Article 49(2)(a) to (d) (“high net worth companies, unincorporated associations etc.”) of the Financial Promotion Order, or (iii) are persons to whom an invitation or inducement to engage in investment activity (within the meaning of section 21 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000) in connection with the issue or sale of any securities may otherwise lawfully be communicated or caused to be communicated (all such persons together being referred to as “relevant persons”). In the United Kingdom, this final term sheet is directed only at relevant persons and must not be acted on or relied on by persons who are not relevant persons. Any investment or investment activity to which this document relates is available in the United Kingdom only to relevant persons and will be engaged in only with relevant persons.
This final term sheet is only addressed to, and is directed at, persons and legal entities in member states of the European Economic Area who are “qualified investors” within the meaning of Article 2(1)(e) of Directive 2003/71/EC (as amended or superseded, the “Prospectus Directive”). The securities described in this final term sheet are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the European Economic Area. For these purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of Directive 2014/65/EU (as amended, “MiFID II”) or (ii) a customer within
the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/97, where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II. Consequently no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (as amended, the “PRIIPs Regulation”) for offering or selling the securities described in this final term sheet or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the European Economic Area has been prepared and therefore offering or selling such securities or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the European Economic Area may be unlawful under the PRIIPS Regulation.
