Other Key Information

This product is a certificate, a transferable debt instrument.

BNP Paribas S.A. –
Call +33 (0)1 57 08 22 00 for more information

This certificate provides a return which depends on the performance over the lifetime  of the certificate of an underlying redeemable preference share issued by BNP Paribas Synergy Limited the value of which is in turn linked to the performance of an  underlying share and/or index or basket of shares and/or indices. The description  below is therefore based on the expected value of such preference share however the  real return will depend on the actual value of the preference share.

The objective of this product is to provide you with a return based on the performance  of an underlying index. This product has a fixed term and will redeem on the  Redemption Date unless redeemed early in accordance with the Automatic Early  Redemption provisions below.

Unless the product has been redeemed early, the following provisions would apply.

On the Redemption Date you will receive in respect of each certificate:

1. If the Final Reference Price is greater than or equal to 80% of the Initial Reference Price: a payment in cash equal to 132.58% of the Notional Amount.

2. If the Final Reference Price is less than 80% of the Initial Reference Price:

a. If a Barrier Event has not occurred: a payment in cash equal to the Notional Amount.

b. If a Barrier Event has occurred: a payment in cash equal to the Notional Amount decreased by the Performance of the Underlying. In this case you will suffer a partial  or total loss of the Notional Amount.

Automatic Early Redemption: If, on any Averaging Date, the arithmetic average is  greater than or equal to the relevant Autocall Barrier, the product will be redeemed on  the corresponding Early Redemption Date. You will receive for each certificate a  payment in cash equal to the Notional Amount plus a premium based on the relevant  Exit Rate.


– A Barrier Event shall be deemed to occur if the Final Reference Price is below the  Barrier.

– The Performance of an Underlying is the difference between its Final Reference  Price and its Initial Reference Price, divided by its Initial Reference Price, expressed in  absolute value.

– The Initial Reference Price is the closing price of the Underlying on the Strike Date.

– The Final Reference Price is the arithmetic average of the closing prices of the  Underlying on the Final Averaging Dates.

– The Averaging Dates date means the Autocall Valuation Date and the four preceding  Scheduled Trading Days.

This product has been designed for retail investors who:

– have a long term investment horizon (over five years).

– seek to invest in a capital growth product, potentially to diversify their portfolio.

– are able to bear losses up to the total of the Notional Amount and are aware of the  possible early termination of the product.

– have been informed or have sufficient knowledge of the financial markets, their  functioning and their risks, and the asset class of the underlying.
