The TPEx expressly disclaims any and all liability for any losses arising from, or as a result of the reliance on, all or part of the contents of this Final Term Sheet.

No key information document (KID) required by Regulation (EU) No. 1286/2014, (as amended, “PRIIPs Regulation”), has been prepared as the Notes will not be made available to any retail investor in the European Economic Area or in the United Kingdom.

Under Rule 15c6-1 of the 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 a trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade notes prior to the second business day before the settlement date will be required, by virtue of the fact that the notes initially will settle in T+8, to specify alternative settlement arrangements to prevent a failed settlement.
