Corporate Press Release
Credit Suisse AG Announces the Reverse Split of its DGAZ ETNs
The reverse split will be effective at the open of trading on November 26, 2018. DGAZ will begin trading on the NYSE Arca on a reverse split-adjusted basis on November 26, 2018. Holders of DGAZ who purchased such ETNs prior to November 26, 2018 will receive one reverse split-adjusted ETN for every twenty pre-reverse split ETNs.
In addition, such purchasers that hold a number of ETNs not evenly divisible by twenty will receive a cash payment for any fractional ETNs remaining (the "partials"). The cash amount due on any partials will be determined on November 30, 2018 based on the closing indicative value of DGAZ on such date and will be paid by Credit Suisse AG on or about December 5, 2018.
The closing indicative value of DGAZ on November 23, 2018 will be multiplied by twenty to determine the reverse split-adjusted closing indicative value. Following the reverse split, DGAZ will have a new CUSIP, but it will retain its current exchange ticker symbol.
The reverse split will affect the trading denomination of DGAZ, but it will not have any effect on the stated principal amount of DGAZ, except that the stated principal amount of DGAZ will be reduced by the corresponding aggregate amount of any cash payments for the "partials."
Illustration of a Reverse Split
The following table shows the effect of a 1-for-20 reverse split on 100,000 ETNs:
|Number of ETNs||Hypothetical Closing Indicative Value||Aggregate Closing Indicative Value|
|1-for-20 Post-Reverse Split||5,000||$100.00||$500,000|
The above table illustrates the effect of the reverse split on the number of ETNs and the hypothetical closing indicative value of the ETNs. Note that the closing indicative value is not the same as the trading price of the ETNs.
None of the other exchange traded notes issued by Credit Suisse AG are affected by this announcement.
