The securities are linked to the performance of the Underlying
set forth in the table below. For more information on the Underlying, see “The Underlying” herein. The Underlying is identified
in the table below, together with its Bloomberg ticker symbol, Initial Level and expected Knock-In Level and Coupon Barrier Level (each

If these securities have
not been previously redeemed at our option and if a Coupon Barrier Event has not occurred on an Observation Date, we will pay the Contingent
Coupon Amount on the immediately following Contingent Coupon Payment Date. However, if a Coupon Barrier Event has occurred on an Observation
Date, no contingent coupon will be paid with respect to that Observation Date. If any Contingent Coupon Payment Date is not a business
day, the contingent coupon will be payable on the first following business day, unless that business day falls in the next calendar month,
in which case payment will be made on the first preceding business day. The amount of any contingent coupon will not be adjusted with
respect to any postponement of a Contingent Coupon Payment Date and no interest or other payment will be payable hereon because of any
such postponement of a Contingent Coupon Payment Date. No contingent coupons will be payable following an Early Redemption. Contingent
coupons, if any, will be payable on the applicable Contingent Coupon Payment Date to the holder of record at the close of business on
the business day immediately preceding the applicable Contingent Coupon Payment Date, provided that the contingent coupon payable on the
Early Redemption Date or Maturity Date, as applicable, will be payable to the person to whom the Early Redemption Amount or the Redemption
Amount, as applicable, is payable.
Contingent Coupon Amount
Expected to be $31.25
(equivalent to approximately 12.50% per annum) (to be determined on the Trade Date) per $1,000 principal amount of securities.
Coupon Barrier Event
A Coupon Barrier Event
will occur if, on any Observation Date, the closing level of the Underlying on such Observation Date is less than the Coupon Barrier Level.
If these securities have
not been previously redeemed at our option, at maturity, the Redemption Amount you will receive will depend on the performance of the
Underlying and whether a Knock-In Event has occurred. For each $1,000 principal amount of securities, the Redemption Amount consisting
of cash or shares we will pay or deliver will be determined as follows:
|·||If a Knock-In Event has not occurred, a cash payment equal to $1,000. Therefore, you will
not participate in any appreciation of the Underlying.
|·||If a Knock-In Event has occurred, a number of shares of the Underlying equal to the Physical Delivery
Amount, plus a cash amount in respect of any fractional share, subject to our
election to pay
cash instead of delivering the Physical Delivery Amount as described below under “Physical Delivery Amount.” The value
of the shares or cash as of the Valuation Date will be less than $600 per $1,000 principal amount of securities. You could lose your entire
