TAXATION
Luxembourg
The comments below are intended as a basic summary of certain tax consequences in relation to the purchase,
ownership and disposal of the Bonds under Luxembourg law. Persons who are in any doubt as to their tax
position should consult a professional tax adviser.
Withholding Tax
Under Luxembourg tax law currently in effect and with the possible exception of interest paid to certain
individual Bondholders, there is no Luxembourg withholding tax on payments of interest (including accrued
but unpaid interest). There is also no Luxembourg withholding tax, with the possible exception of payments
made to certain individual Bondholders, upon repayment of principal in case of reimbursement, redemption,
repurchase or exchange of the Bonds.
Luxembourg residents
In accordance with the law of 23 December 2005, as amended, on the introduction of a withholding tax on
certain interest payments on savings income, interest payments made by Luxembourg paying agents to
Luxembourg individual residents are subject to a 20 per cent. withholding tax. Responsibility for withholding
such tax will be assumed by the Luxembourg paying agent.
Income Taxation on Principal, Interest, Gains on Sales or Redemption
Luxembourg tax residency of the Bondholders
Bondholders will not be deemed to be resident, domiciled or carrying on business in Luxembourg solely by
reason of holding, execution, performance, delivery, exchange and/or enforcement of the Bonds.
Taxation of Luxembourg non-residents
Bondholders who are non-residents of Luxembourg and who do not have a permanent establishment, a
permanent representative or a fixed base of business in Luxembourg with which the holding of the Bonds is
connected, will not be subject to taxes (income taxes and net wealth tax) or duties in Luxembourg with respect
to payments of principal or interest (including accrued but unpaid interest), payments received upon redemption,
repurchase or exchange of the Bonds or capital gains realised upon disposal or repayment of the Bonds.
Taxation of Luxembourg residents
Bondholders who are residents of Luxembourg will not be liable for any Luxembourg income tax on repayment
of principal.
Interest received by an individual resident in Luxembourg is, in principle, reportable and taxable at the
progressive rate unless the interest has been subject to withholding tax (see above "Withholding Tax" -
Luxembourg residents) or to the self-applied tax, if applicable. Indeed, in accordance with the Luxembourg law
of 23 December 2005, as amended, Luxembourg resident individuals, acting in the framework of their private
wealth, can opt to self-declare and pay a 20 per cent. tax on interest payments made by paying agents located
in an EU Member State other than Luxembourg, or a Member State of the European Economic Area other than
an EU Member State.
The withholding tax or self-applied tax are the final tax liability for the Luxembourg individual resident
taxpayers receiving the interest payment in the framework of their private wealth. Individual Luxembourg
resident Bondholders receiving the interest as business income must include this interest in their taxable basis.
If applicable, the 20 per cent. Luxembourg withholding tax levied will be credited against their final income
tax liability.

S-4



Luxembourg resident individual Bondholders are not subject to taxation on capital gains upon the disposal of
the Bonds, unless the disposal of the Bonds precedes the acquisition of the Bonds or the Bonds are disposed of
within six months of the date of acquisition of these Bonds. Upon the sale, redemption or exchange of the
Bonds, accrued but unpaid interest will be subject to the 20 per cent. withholding tax or the self-applied tax, if
applicable. Individual Luxembourg resident Bondholders receiving the interest as business income must include
the portion of the price corresponding to this interest in their taxable income. The 20 per cent. Luxembourg
withholding tax levied will be credited against their final income tax liability.
Luxembourg resident corporate Bondholders, or non-resident Bondholders which have a permanent
establishment, a permanent representative or a fixed base of business in Luxembourg with which the holding
of the Bonds is connected, must for income tax purposes include in their taxable income any interest (including
accrued but unpaid interest) as well as the difference between the sale or redemption price and the lower of the
cost or book value of the Bonds sold or redeemed.
Luxembourg resident corporate Bondholders which are companies benefiting from a special tax regime (such
as (a) family wealth management companies subject to the law of 11 May 2007, as amended, (b) undertakings
for collective investment subject to the law of 17 December 2010, as amended,(c) specialised investment funds
subject to the law of 13 February 2007, as amended, or (d) reserved alternative investment funds governed by
the law of 23 July 2016, provided it is not foreseen in the incorporation documents that (i) the exclusive object
is the investment in risk capital and that (ii) article 48 of the aforementioned law of 23 July 2016 applies) are
tax exempt entities in Luxembourg, and are thus not subject to any Luxembourg tax (i.e., corporate income tax,
municipal business tax and net wealth tax) other than the annual subscription tax calculated on their (paid up)
share capital (and share premium) or net asset value.
Net Wealth tax
Luxembourg net wealth tax will not be levied on a corporate Bondholder, unless (a) such Bondholder is a
Luxembourg resident other than a Bondholder governed by (i) the laws of 17 December 2010 on undertakings
for collective investment; as amended, (ii) the law of 13 February 2007 on specialised investment funds, as
amended, (iii) the law of 22 March 2004 on securitisation; as amended, (iv) the law of 15 June 2004 on the
investment company in risk capital; as amended, (v) the law of 11 May 2007 on family estate management
companies, as amended, or (vi) the law of 23 July 2016 on reserved alternative investment funds, or (b) the
Bonds are attributable to an enterprise or part thereof which is carried on in Luxembourg through a permanent
establishment or a permanent representative.
Other taxes
No stamp, registration, transfer or similar taxes or duties will be payable in Luxembourg by Noteholders in
connection with the issue of the Bonds, nor will any of these taxes be payable as a consequence of a subsequent
transfer or redemption of the Bonds, unless the documents relating to the Bonds are (a) voluntarily registered
in Luxembourg, or (b) voluntarily appended to a document that requires mandatory registration in Luxembourg.
There is no Luxembourg value added tax payable in respect of payments in consideration for the issuance of
the Bonds or in respect of the payment of interest or principal under the Bonds or the transfer of the Bonds.
Luxembourg value added tax may, however, be payable in respect of fees charged for certain services rendered
to the Issuer, if for Luxembourg value added tax purposes such services are rendered or are deemed to be
rendered in Luxembourg and an exemption from Luxembourg value added tax does not apply with respect to
such services.
Bondholders not permanently resident in Luxembourg at the time of death will not be subject to inheritance or
other similar taxes in Luxembourg in respect of the Bonds. No Luxembourg gift tax is levied upon a gift or

S-5



donation of the Bonds, if the gift is not passed before a Luxembourg notary or recorded in a deed registered in
Luxembourg.
