The performance of the notes may not be consistent with the investment objective. This term sheet, which gives a brief summary of the terms of the notes, relates to, and should be read in conjunction with, t he pricing supplement dated September 26, 2022, the Product Supplement dated July 22, 2022, the Prospectus Supplement dated May 26, 2022, and to the Prospectus dated May 26, 2022.

 

     
 

 

2 Payment at Maturity (if held to the Maturity Date): If the notes are not automatically redeemed, the payment at maturity for the notes is based on the performance of the Reference Asset. You will receive $1,000 for each $1,000 in principal amount of the notes, unless the Final Level of the Reference Asset is less than its Trigger Level. If the Final Level of the Reference Asset is less than its Trigger Level , you will receive at maturity, for each $1,000 in principal amount of your notes , a cash amount equal to: $1,000 + [$1,000 x (Percentage Change of the Reference Asset)] This amount will be less than the principal amount of your notes , and may be zero. Percentage Change: The Percentage Change of the Reference Asset, expressed as a percentage, is calculated using the following formula: (Final Level – Initial Level) / Initial Level Initial Level: T he closing level of the Reference Asset on the Pricing Date. Final Level: T he closing level of the Reference Asset on the Valuation Date. Principal at Risk: Investors in these notes could lose all or a substantial portion of their investment at maturity if there has been a decline in the market value of the Reference Asset and the Final Level of the Reference Asset is less than its Trigger Level. We urge you to carefully review the documents described in “Additional Information” below, including the risk factors set forth and incorporated by reference therein, prior to making an investment decision. Secondary Market: The notes will not be listed on any securities exchange. Although not obligated to do so, BMO Capital Markets Corp. (or one of its affiliates), plans to maintain a secondary market in the notes after the Settlement Date. Proceeds from a sale of notes prior to maturity may be less than the principal amount initially invested.

 

     
 

 

3 Selected Risk Considerations: The risks summarized below are some of the most important factors to be considered prior to any purchase of the notes. Investors are urged to read all the risk factors related to the notes in the pricing supplement and the product supplement to which this term sheet relates. • You could lose up to the entire principal amount of your notes, and your potential return on the notes is limited to any Contingent Coupon payments, if any. If the notes are not automatically redeemed and if a Trigger Event has occurred with respect to the Reference Asset, and if the Final Level of the Reference Asset is less than its Initial Level, you will lose 1% of the principal amount for each 1% that the Final Level of the Reference Asset is less than its Initial Level. • You may not receive any Contingent Coupons with respect to your notes. • Your notes are subject to automatic early redemption. If the notes are so redeemed, you will not receive any additional Contingent Coupons, and you may not be able to invest the proceeds in a security with a similar return. • Your return on the notes is limited to the Contingent Coupons, if any, regardless of any increase in the level of the Reference Asset. • A higher Contingent Interest Rate or lower Trigger Levels or Coupon Barrier Levels may reflect greater expected volatility of the Reference Asset, and greater expected volatility generally indicates an increased risk of loss at maturity. • Your return on the notes may be lower than the return on a conventional debt security of comparable maturity. • The notes are unsecured debt obligations of the Issuer and your investment is subject to the credit risk of the Issuer. • Our and our affiliates’ activities may conflict with your interests and may also adversely affect the value of the notes. • Our initial estimated value of the notes will be lower than the price to public, does not represent any future value of the notes, and may also differ from the estimated value of any other party. • The terms of the notes are not determined by reference to the credit spreads for our conventional fixed - rate debt. • The inclusion of the hedging profits, if any, in the initial price to public of the notes, as well as our hedging costs, is likely to adversely affect the price at which you can sell your notes. • You will not have any shareholder rights and will have no right to receive any securities represented by the Reference Asset at maturity. • We have no affiliation with the sponsor of the Reference Asset, and will not be responsible for their actions. • Changes that affect the Reference Asset will affect the market value of the notes, whether the notes will be automatically called, and the amount you will receive at maturity. Adjustments to the Reference Asset could adversely affect the notes. The sponsor of the Reference Asset may make adjustments, discontinue or suspend calculations or publication of that Reference Asset, or discontinue of suspend maintenance of that Reference Asset at any time. • The notes will not be listed on any securities exchange. BMOCM may offer to purchase the notes in the secondary market, but is not required to do so. Even if there is a secondary market, it may not provide enough liquidity to allow you to trade or sell the notes easily. • We and our affiliates may engage in hedging and trading activities related to the notes that could adversely affect our payment to you at maturity.

 

     
 

 

4 Hypothetical Calculations for the Payment at Maturity: Examples of the Hypothetical Payment at Maturity for a $1,000 Investment in the notes The following examples illustrate the hypothetical payments on a note at maturity, assuming that the notes are not automatically called. The hypothetical payments are based on a $1,000 investment in the notes, a hypothetical Initial Level of 100.00, a hypothetical Trigger Level of 50.00 for each Reference Asset (50% of its hypothetical Initial Level), a hypothetical Call Level of 100 ( 100% of the hypothetical Initial Level), the Contingent Interest Rate of 0.708 % per month , a range of hypothetical Final Levels of the Reference Asset and the effect on the payment at maturity if (i) a Trigger Event occurs with respect to the Reference Asset or (ii) if a Trigger Event does not occur with respect to the Reference Asset. The hypothetical examples shown below are intended to help you understand the terms of the notes . If the notes are not automatically called, the actual cash amount that you will receive at maturity will depend upon whether the closing l evel of the Reference Asset is below its Trigger Level on the Valuation Date . If the notes are automatically called prior to maturity, the hypothetical examples below will not be relevant, and you will receive on the applicable Call Settlement Date, for each $1,000 principal amount, the principal amount plus the applicable Contingent Coupon . These examples do not give effect to any U.S. federal tax payments or brokerage commissions that you may be required to pay in connection with your purchase of the notes . Example 1: The Final Level of the Reference Asset at maturity is $40 , which is less than the Trigger Level and therefore a Trigger Event has occurred. In this case, you will receive a payment of $400 for each $1,000 in principal amount of the notes , resulting in a loss of 60% of your principal amount. Your loss of principal may be partially offset by Contingent Coupons, if any, received with respect to the notes. Example 2: The Final Level of the Reference Asset at maturity is $90 and therefore a Trigger Event has not occurred. In this case, you will receive a payment equal to the principal amount of your notes . You will not receive any positive return on your investment other than any Contingent Coupons. Example 3: The Final Level of the Reference Asset at maturity is $115, which is 15% greater than the Initial Level. In this case, you will receive a payment equal to the principal amount of your notes . You will not receive any positive return on your investment other than any Contingent Coupons.
