Credit Suisse AG Announces the Reverse Split of Its UGAZ ETNs

Credit Suisse AG announced today that it will implement a 1-for-10 reverse split of its VelocityShares™ 3x Long Natural Gas ETNs ("UGAZ"), expected to be effective as of December 23, 2019.

The reverse split will be effective at the open of trading on December 23, 2019. UGAZ will begin trading on the NYSE Arca on a reverse split-adjusted basis on December 23, 2019. Holders of UGAZ who purchase such ETNs prior to December 23, 2019 will receive one reverse split-adjusted ETN for every ten pre-reverse split ETNs.

In addition, such purchasers that hold a number of ETNs not evenly divisible by ten will receive a cash payment for any fractional ETNs remaining (the "partials"). The cash amount due on any partials will be determined on December 30, 2019 based on the closing indicative value of UGAZ on such date and will be paid by Credit Suisse AG on or about January 3, 2020.

The closing indicative value of UGAZ on December 20, 2019 will be multiplied by ten to determine the reverse split-adjusted closing indicative value. Following the reverse split, UGAZ will have a new CUSIP but will retain its current ticker symbol.

The reverse split will affect the trading denomination of UGAZ, but it will not have any effect on the stated principal amount of the ETNs, except that the stated principal amount will be reduced by the corresponding aggregate amount of any cash payments for "partials."
