JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (the “Issuer”) today announces the launch of an offering of cash-settled exchangeable bonds due 2020 (the “Bonds”) in aggregate principal amount of up to approximately USD 350 million. The Bonds are referable to H-shares (the “Shares”) of Ping An Insurance (Group) Company of China Limited (the “Company”). Exchange rights in respect of the Bonds will be cash-settled only.

The Issuer is rated A+ (Stable outlook) by Standard & Poor’s, Aa3 (Stable outlook) by Moody’s and AA (Stable outlook) by Fitch.

The Bonds will be issued in principal amounts of USD 200,000 and integral multiples of USD 100,000 in excess thereof and will not bear interest. The Bonds will be marketed with an issue price of 100% and are expected to be redeemed at par on 30 December 2020 (the “Final Maturity Date”).

The initial exchange price (the “Initial Exchange Price”) will be marketed with a range of 15% to 20% premium to the reference share price (the “Share Reference Price”) that will be based on the simple arithmetic average of the daily volume-weighted average prices of a Share on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange over a period of 2 consecutive trading days commencing on (and including) 18 July 2018, subject as provided in the terms and conditions of the Bonds (the “Share Reference Period”). The final terms of the issuance are expected to be announced today, except for the Share Reference Price and the Initial Exchange Price which are expected to be announced on 19 July 2018 at the end of the Share Reference Period.

The Issuer shall give notice to redeem all outstanding Bonds at their early redemption amount on the early redemption date if (i) any event occurs as a result of which option contracts in respect of the Shares are settled in accordance with the standard corporate actions procedures of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited in effect from time to time or such successor policy (“Option Contracts Settlement”) or (ii) a Nationalisation or Delisting event occurs. The Issuer may, at its option, give notice to redeem all outstanding Bonds at the early redemption amount on the early redemption date if a Change in Law event occurs. If a Change in Law, Delisting, Nationalisation or Option Contracts Settlement event occur and the Issuer issues a notice to redeem all outstanding bonds, bondholders will have the right to elect that all or some of its Bonds shall not be redeemed. If a Bondholder validly elects that all or some of its Bonds shall not be redeemed, such Bonds will be redeemed on the Final Maturity Date at their principal amount plus the Intrinsic Value per Bond. The election and redemption mechanics are further described in the terms and conditions of the Bonds.

Settlement and delivery of the Bonds is expected to take place on 20 July 2018 (the “Issue Date”).

The net proceeds from the issue of Bonds will be used by the Issuer for its general corporate purposes (including hedging arrangements).

Application will be made for the Bonds to be admitted to trading on the Open Market (Freiverkehr) segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and such admission to trading is expected no later than one month after the Issue Date.

J.P. Morgan Securities plc is acting as Sole Bookrunner and Calculation Agent.

The Issuer intends to enter into certain derivatives arrangements with the Sole Bookrunner to hedge the exposure to pay cash amounts upon any potential exercise of the exchange rights embedded in the Bonds and/or upon redemption. The Sole Bookrunner is party to certain existing derivative arrangements in relation to the Shares and may enter into further transactions to hedge its position, or adjust its hedging position under such arrangements, including transactions to be conducted during the reference period regarding the determination of the Share Reference Price and other averaging and valuation periods in relation to the Bonds. Such activity may impact the Share Reference Price, the price or value of the Shares and Bonds more generally, including without limitation during such averaging or valuation periods.
