9 3. CALCULAION 3.1 DEFINIION AND COMPOSIION OF HE INDEX he leverage index racks he performance of a sraegy ha has a muliple (K) exposure o an underlying index wih he suppor of shor-erm financing. he Shor or Bear index racks he performance of a sraegy which reverses a muliple (K) exposure o he underlying index by combining a shor posiion on he underlying index and exposure o a risk-free moneymarke insrumen, (he EONIA or oher rae). he laer exposure consiss of he money invesed in he index plus he muliple (K) shor posiions. 3.2 CALCULAION OF HE LEVERAGE INDICES he general formula of he Leverage indices is defined as follows: LI = LI 1 + K 1 IR 360 SPR 360 ( K 1) LI D, a( K 1) LI D, Where: LI LI IR =Rebalancing dae; for daily indices his is he previous business day. = Leverage index level a ime of calculaion = Closing Leverage index level on he previous calculaion day = Underlying index level (see Index summary) a ime of calculaion = Closing Underlying Index level on he las rebalancing day = Applicable ineres rae as a he rebalancing dae. For daily indices his is EONIA. D, = he number of days beween he day of he calculaion and, he rebalancing day SPR = Applicable ineres rae spread over he IR a = Applicable facor o apply spread over IR if no applied, a=0 K = Leverage facor 3.3 CALCULAION OF HE BEAR AND SHOR INDICES he general formula of he Shor indexes is defined as follows: BI = BI 1 K 1 + IR 360 REPO 360 ( K + 1) BI D, K. a. BI D, BI =Rebalancing dae; for daily indices his is he previous business day. = Shor or Bear index level a ime of calculaion 7

10 BI = Closing Shor index level on he previous calculaion day = Underlying index level (see Index summary) a ime of calculaion = Closing Underlying Index level on he previous calculaion day D, = he number of days beween he day of he calculaion and, he rebalancing day IR REPO a K = Applicable ineres rae as a he rebalancing dae. For daily indices his is EONIA. = he rae reflecing he repurchase agreemen embedded in he sraegy and specific o each underlying index. he rae may no be applied for specific indices = Applicable facor o apply REPO. If REPO rae is no applied a=0. = Shor facor 3.4 REVERSE SPLI OF INDEX LEVEL If an index has dropped below 10 i may qualify for a reverse spli. his rule is applied o he indices wih a facor 4 or higher or -4 or less. For he reverse spli he Compiler will use a sandard reverse raio of Periodical Review Indices are reviewed each monh on he firs Friday. If an index level has reached a closing level below 10 on he previous day, he index level will be adjused 2 weeks laer by a reverse spli. Implemenaion of reverse spli Afer close of business on he 3 rd Friday of he monh, he closing level will be muliplied by 1000 (one housand). In case he Friday is no a rading day, he review or implemenaion will be on he day before. 3.5 SPLI OF INDEX LEVEL If an index has risen above i may qualify for a spli. his rule is applied o he indices wih a facor 4 or higher or -4 or less. For he spli he Compiler will use a sandard raio of Periodical Review Indices are reviewed each monh on he firs Friday. If an index level has reached a closing level above on he previous day, he index level will be adjused 2 weeks laer by a spli. Implemenaion of spli Afer close of business on he 3 rd Friday of he monh, he closing level will be divided by (one housand). In case he Friday is no a rading day, he review or implemenaion will be on he day before. 8

11 4. PUBLICAION 4.1 DISSEMINAION OF INDEX VALUES Opening he calculaion of he index sars as soon as he official index levels of he underlying indexes are available Calculaion and disseminaion he index is calculaed based on he mos recen prices of ransacions concluded on Euronex Markes. he level of he index is in principle published every 15 seconds. he index is calculaed from 09:00 unil Euronex Markes sop regular dayime rading on he days when Euronex Markes are open for rading Closing level he calculaion of he closing index levels is based on he respecive official underlying index closing levels published by Euronex. 4.2 EXCEPIONAL MARKE CONDIIONS AND CORRECIONS Unavailabiliy of he underlying index level In case he underlying index level of he index is no available during a ime period ouside he regular closing ime of he Euronex markes, he level of he index will no be calculaed. If he unavailabiliy exends over he closing aucion ime of he Euronex markes, he closing value of he index will be he las level known before he unavailabiliy of he underlying Exreme marke movemens In case he underlying index level of he index rises or falls more han a predefined percenage relaive o he close of he previous rading day, he index will be eiher suspended or rese (see index summary) Procedure for Suspension If an index is suspended, he Compiler will confirm he index level o be considered as he closing index value a he marke close Procedure for rese of daily leveraged/shor indices In case he Underlying Index level rises or falls by more han a predefined percenage relaive o is close of he previous rading day, he Leverage or Shor Index will be rese. If an index is rese, he index will be adjused inraday: For leverage calculaions only downrend movemens will rigger a rese For shor calculaions only uprend movemens will rigger he rese. Numerically, he inraday rese condiion is defined as follows (wih α >0): Or Where: <α% > α% (C1-L) for Leverage indices (C1-S) for Shor/Bear indices is he real-ime price of he index a ime of calculaion ime ; is he official closing level of he index on he previous rebalance day; % α = as per he Index Summary secion above under he column Rule in case of exreme marke movemens. 9

12 For Leverage indices, if condiion (C1-L) is me a calculaion ime : he calculaion of he index is suspended emporarily (i.e. he level ha was published jus before he condiion is me will keep on being published). he prices of he Underlying Index are observed during 5 full minues. he minimum price of he Underlying Index during he 5-minue observaion period is used o rese he Leverage Index. For Shor/Bear indices, if condiion (C1-S) is me a calculaion ime : he calculaion of he index is suspended emporarily (i.e. he level ha was published jus before he condiion is me will keep on being published). he prices of he Underlying Index are observed during 5 full minues. he highes price of he Underlying Index during he 5-minue observaion period is used o rese he Leverage Index. Once he observaion period is over he calculaion of he index is resumed as per he formula below: Or LI = LIR1 1 + K 1 R1 L SI = SIR1 1 K 1 R1 H Where: R 1 Lis he lowes recorded index level over an observaion period of 5 minues following calculaion ime (ime when he hreshold was crossed) ; LI R1 is he level of he index using index level R 1 L; LI R + K 1 EONIA SPR ( K 1) D ( K 1) D 1L R1 = LI 1 1, 1, R 1 H is he highes recorded index level over an observaion period of 5 minues following calculaion ime (ime when he hreshold was crossed) ; SI R1 is he level of he index using index level R 1 H ; 10

13 SI R K 1 + EONIA REPO ( K + 1) D K D 1H R1 = SI 1 1, 1, Noe ha no addiional refinancing coss are calculaed afer an inraday rese occurs. An inraday rese may occur more han once during he same scheduled calculaion dae. Afer a firs inraday rese occurs, he condiion becomes he following: Or R1L R1H < α% > α% (C2-L) for Leverage indices (C2-S) for Shor/Bear indices Where: is he index level used a ime of calculaion ; R 1 L as defined above; R 1 H as defined above; α % as defined above. If he above condiion (C2) is me, anoher inraday rese is riggered. he calculaion in real-ime resumes as follows: Or Where: LI = LIR K 1 R 2L SI = SIR 2 1 K 1 R 2H R 2 L is he lowes recorded index level over an observaion period of 5 minues following calculaion ime (ime when condiion (C2-L) is me). 11

14 LI R2 R 2L = LIR1 1 + K 1 R1L R 2 H is he lowes recorded index level over an observaion period of 5 minues following calculaion ime (ime when condiion (C2-S) is me). SI R2 R 2H = SIR1 1 K 1 R1H he same procedure is followed for any oher inraday rese following anoher crossing of he predefined hreshold. he closing level of he index will be calculaed in accordance wih he las parameers defined for he las rese even as described above. 4.3 ANNOUNCEMEN POLICY Announcemen policy Changes o he index, is componens or is rules will be announced by an index announcemen which will be disribued via e mail and/or he websie of Euronex. As a rule he announcemen periods ha are menioned underneah will be applied. However, urgen reamens or lae noices may require he Compiler o deviae from he sandard iming Rule changes Barring excepion, a period of a leas wo monhs should pass beween he dae a proposed change is published and he dae his comes ino effec. Excepions can be made only if he change is no in conflic wih he ineress of an affeced pary. 12
