English law governed notes
Credit Suisse International (www.credit-suisse.com/derivatives). The product issuer is Credit Suisse AG, acting through its London Branch.
The product is designed to provide a return in the form of a cash payment on termination of the product. The timing and amount of this payment will depend on the change in value of the preference shares, which in turn will depend on the performance of the underlyings. The product has a fixed term and will terminate on the maturity date, unless terminated early. The payment at maturity will not exceed GBP 1.656. If, at maturity, the worst performing underlying has fallen below 60.00% of its initial reference level, the product may return less than the product notional amount or even zero.
Early termination following an autocall: The product will terminate prior to the maturity date if, on any autocall observation date the reference level of the worst performing underlying is at or above the relevant autocall barrier level. On any such early termination, you will on the immediately following autocall payment date receive a cash payment equal to the applicable autocall payment. The relevant dates, autocall barrier levels and autocall payments are shown in the key information document.
Termination on the maturity date: If the product has not terminated early, on the maturity date you will receive:
1. if the final reference level of the worst performing underlying is at or above 75.00% of its initial reference level, a cash payment equal to GBP 1.656;
2. if the final reference level of the worst performing underlying is at or above 60.00% of its initial reference level and below 75.00% of its initial reference level, a cash payment equal to GBP 1.00; or
3. if the final reference level of the worst performing underlying is below 60.00% of its initial reference level, a cash payment directly linked to the performance of the worst performing underlying. The cash payment will equal (i) the product notional amount multiplied by (ii) (A) the final reference level of the worst performing underlying divided by (B) its initial reference level.
Investors should note that the payments described above are based on the expected value of the preference shares. Therefore any return you may receive on the product depends directly on the value of the preference shares. As such, your return is only indirectly dependent on the underlyings.
Under the product terms, certain dates specified above and below will be adjusted if the respective date is either not a business day or not a trading day (as applicable). Any adjustments may affect the return, if any, you receive.
The product terms also provide that if certain exceptional events occur (1) adjustments may be made to the product and/or (2) the product issuer may terminate the product, as applicable, early. These events are specified in the product terms and principally relate to the product and the product issuer. The preference shares in turn contain provisions allowing the preference shares to be adjusted or terminated early in the case of certain exceptional events, in particular relating to the underlyings. Any such adjustments or early termination are likely to affect the amount and timing of return you receive under the product, meaning the return (if any) that you receive on such early termination is likely to be different from the scenarios described above and may be less than the amount you invested.
