VARIABLE RETURN

The Variable Return calculation is the formula used to determine the Variable Return on the Notes at the Maturity Date. The Variable Return per Note is calculated as follows:

Variable Return = Principal Amount ($100) * Portfolio Performance

Where: Portfolio Performance = NAVFINAL - 100  
  100  

‘‘NAVFINAL’’ means, at any time (expressed pro rata per Note): (i) the notional proceeds from the liquidation of the Equity Account; plus (ii) the maturity value of the Bond Account as calculated by the Calculation Agent; minus (iii) repayment of the Loan and any accrued and unpaid Loan interest and Program Fees. Portfolio Performance will be the amount, if any, determined on the Maturity Date and expressed as a percentage of the Principal Amount, by which the pro rata value of the Portfolio per Note exceeds the Principal Amount, being $100. An Investor cannot elect to receive the Variable Return, if any, prior to the Maturity Date and the Notes cannot be redeemed or retracted prior to the Maturity Date. There is a possibility that an Investor may not receive any Variable Return.


Performance Commentary
As of October 3, 2008 the Variable Return of the Notes is no longer linked to the portfolio of Shares notionally held in the Equity Account of the Notes. The Value Spread of the Notes declined to $1.27 per Note at the close of business on October 3, 2008. In accordance with the terms of the Notes, this resulted in a Protection Event whereby the remaining notional assets in the Equity Account were liquidated and notionally invested in the 0.50% coupon Bond in the Bond Account, following payment of the Loan, any accrued and unpaid Loan interest and any Program Fees. Investors will receive their $100 of Principal per Note and a Variable Return of $0.93, for total proceeds of $100.93 per Note at the Maturity Date, which is December 20, 2012.
