Notes to editor:

With a turbo long, there is a finance-level and a stop loss-level. If the underlying share price drops below the stop loss-level, the turbo long is terminated. The investor then receives the value of the difference between the finance-level and the level on which the counterparty, in this case BNP Paribas, can close the turbo. Take for example a turbo with a stop loss-level of 10 and a finance-level of 8. When the underlying share price drops below 10, which is the stop loss-level, the buyer will still receive the amount 10-8=2. However, when the shareprice would suddenly drop to 8 or below, the buyer will receive nothing and the total investment is lost. In most cases however, the turbo would be terminated at the stop loss-level, and the buyer receives the amount of the difference between the finance-level and the stop loss-level. The actual amount will be determined by BNP.

Deputy Company Secretary
