NOTICE FROM THE CALCULATION AGENT TO NOTEHOLDERS
FlexInvest Securities, Inc. d/b/a GWM Group, Inc.
(the "Calculation Agent")
Shard Alliance (Series 29) Notes due 2035
ISIN: XS1224713658 COMMON CODE: 122471365
(the "Notes" or the "Series" and the holders thereof the "Noteholders")
Capitalised terms used but not otherwise defined in this notice shall have the meanings ascribed to
them in the Series Memorandum dated 2 August 2015 and the Conditions of the Notes as the same
may be amended and / or supplemented from time to time.
The purpose of this notice is to provide Noteholders with an update on the pricing of the Notes.
The entire net proceeds of the Notes are invested in non-voting, participating Class A shares
(together with certain related rights as described in the Series Memorandum) of Shard Alliance Co
Ltd. ("Shard Alliance"), a British Virgin Islands company limited by shares and incorporated in
the British Virgin Islands (the "Class A Shares").
Shard Alliance has failed to provide Audited Financial Statements for the 2020 Financial Year,
due 31 July 2021, and Audited Financial Statements for the 2021 Financial Year, due 31 July 2022.
Given the failure of Shard Alliance to deliver valuation information in compliance with the audit
and valuation requirements the Calculation Agent is unable to determine a value for the Class A
Shares or the Notes at this time. The Calculation Agent will not provide a NAV Report until the
value of the Class A Shares and the Notes can be determined.
Notwithstanding the above, the decision not to publish a summary of the NAV Report on
Bloomberg nor disseminate the NAV to SIX Financial Information USA Inc. and to the Vienna
Stock Exchange may cause some pricing platforms, custodians, and other financial institutions to
(i) report a value for the Notes of zero, (ii) report the last published NAV price (being 150.02 as
of 28 February 2022) or (iii) designate pricing unavailability. Noteholders should be aware that
notwithstanding the manner in which pricing platforms, custodians, and other financial institutions
are reporting the value of the Notes, the Calculation Agent is not reporting a NAV price of the
Notes at this time and Noteholders should not rely on any reported price as reflecting the
Calculation Agent's determination of the current value of the Notes.
The Calculation Agent will provide further information to the Noteholders once available.
