When future performance is displayed, the figures relating to future performance are a forecast which is not a reliable indicator of future results.

The Issuer and the Guarantor assume no responsibility whatsoever for such consequences and their impact on the investment. </li></ul><ul><li>The attention of investors is drawn to the fact that, by the maturity date, the price of certain products can be subject to volatility due to the evolution of market parameters and more precisely the price of the underlying and the interest rates.
