MIFID II PRODUCT GOVERNANCE / PROFESSIONAL INVESTORS AND
ELIGIBLE COUNTERPARTIES ONLY TARGET MARKET ­ Solely for the purposes
of the manufacturer's product approval process, the target market assessment in respect of the
Notes has led to the conclusion that: (i) the target market for the Notes is eligible counterparties
and professional clients only, each as defined in Directive 2014/65/EU, as amended ("MiFID
II"); and (ii) all channels for distribution of the Notes to eligible counterparties and professional
clients are appropriate. Any person subsequently offering, selling or recommending the Notes
(a distributor) should take into consideration the manufacturer's target market assessment;
however, a distributor subject to MiFID II is responsible for undertaking its own target market
assessment in respect of the Notes (by either adopting or refining the manufacturer's target
market assessment) and determining appropriate distribution channels.

clients, as defined in Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of UK domestic law by
virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 ("UK MiFIR"); and (ii) all channels for
distribution of the Notes to eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate. Any
person subsequently offering, selling or recommending the Notes (a distributor) should take
into consideration the manufacturer's target market assessment; however, a distributor subject

Regulation"). Consequently no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No
1286/2014, as amended (the "PRIIPs Regulation") for offering or selling the Notes or
otherwise making them available to retail investors in the European Economic Area has been
