Original issue date: December 20, 2023
Valuation date: December 31, 2025
Maturity date: January 6, 2026
Payment at maturity:

You will receive on the maturity date a cash payment per Buffered PLUS determined as follows:

·         If the final underlier value is greater than the initial underlier value:

the lesser of (a) $1,000 + leveraged upside payment and (b) maximum payment at maturity

·         If the final underlier value is equal to the initial underlier value or less than the initial underlier value but not by more than the buffer amount of 10%:

$1,000 + ($1,000 × absolute value return)

In this scenario, you will receive a positive 1% return on the

Buffered PLUS for each 1% decrease of the

underlier. In no event will this amount exceed the stated

principal amount plus $100.00.

·         If the final underlier value is less than the initial underlier value by more than the buffer amount of 10%:

($1,000 × underlier performance factor) + $100.00

This amount will be less than the stated principal amount of $1,000, but will be at least $100.00. Investors may lose up to 90% of their initial investment in the Buffered PLUS.

Minimum payment at maturity: $100.00 per Buffered PLUS (10% of the stated principal amount)
Leveraged upside payment: $1,000 × upside leverage factor × underlier return

Buffer amount: 10%
Underlier return: (final underlier value – initial underlier value) / initial underlier value
Absolute value return: The absolute value of the underlier return. For example, a -5% underlier return will result in a +5% absolute value return.
