The Mariana 10:10 FTSE Kick Out Plan is a 10 year two-week Plan with the potential to mature early from the end of the Plans first year.
The Plan has three options and is constructed to offer a Potential Return of 10% in Option 3 for each year the Plan runs with the possibility of early maturity and the full repayment of Initial Capital from the end of the Plan’s first year and annually thereafter. The Potential Return is only payable if the Plan kicks out.
Should the Closing Price of the Underlying Asset on an Observation Date be at or above the Kick Out Trigger Level, the Plan will mature early, repaying your Initial Capital plus the Potential Return multiplied by the number of years the Plan has run.
The Kick Out observations begin on the first anniversary date and continue on an annual basis until the Plan’s Maturity Date (from 15 August 2022 to 14 August 2030).
If the Plan has not already kicked out, Initial Capital will be repaid in full at the end of the Plan’s term if on the Maturity Date (14 August 2030) the Closing Price of the Underlying Asset is not more than 30% below the Start Level.
If on the Maturity Date the Closing Price of the Underlying Asset is less than 70% of the Start Level (representing a decline of more than 30% from the Start Level), your Initial Capital will be lost at a rate of 1% for every 1% the Closing Price of the Underlying Asset is below the Start Level.
The Plan has the opportunity to kick out on an Observation Date providing the Closing Price of
the Underlying Asset is at or above 105% of the Start Level. As an example, if the Plan kicks out at the end of year 4 with a Potential Return of 10% per annum, you will receive the return of 40% gross (4 x the annual return) plus your Initial Capital.
What happens if the Plan doesn’t kick out?
If the Plan does not kick out or mature early, the repayment of your Initial Capital on the Maturity Payment Date depends on the performance of the Underlying Asset. Therefore, if the Plan does not kick out, and on the Maturity Date the Finish Level of the Underlying Asset is less than 105% of the Start Level but not less than 70% of the Start Level, you will not receive the Potential Return but your Initial Capital will be repaid in full.
These examples are not exhaustive. Please be aware that you are likely to receive less than your Initial Capital if you decide to encash the Plan early.
