1 ehodology of he CBOE S&P 500 PuWre Index (PUT S ) (wh supplemenal nformaon regardng he CBOE S&P 500 PuWre T-W Index (PWT S )) The CBOE S&P 500 PuWre Index (cker symbol PUT ) racks he value of a passve nvesmen sraegy ( CBOE S&P 500 Collaeralzed Pu Sraegy ) whch consss of overlayng S&P 500 (SP) shor pu opons over a money marke accoun nvesed n one- and hree-monhs Treasury blls. The SPX pus are sruck a-he-money and are sold on a monhly bass, usually on he 3 rd Frday of he monh. Ths s called he roll dae and maches he dae of S&P 500 opon expraons. The base dae of he PUT Index s June 1, 1988, when s value was 100. The daly hsorcal daa for he Pu Index was recenly exended back o June 30, 1986, on whch dae he PUT Index was a Daly hsorcal daa on he PUT Index s avalable a and from Bloomberg and oher prce quoe vendors. Roll Dae Transacons A each roll dae, any selemen loss from he exprng SPX pus s fnanced by he Treasury bll accouns and a bach of a-he-money SPX pus s sold. The revenue from her sale s added o he Treasury bll accoun. The hree-monh Treasury blls are deemed o maure when SPX pus on he arch quarerly cycle monhs are sold. The oal cash avalable s hen renvesed a he hree-monh Treasury bll rae. In oher monhs, he revenue from he sale of pus s nvesed separaely a he one-monh Treasury bll rae. Number of SPX Pus Sold The number of SPX pus sold s chosen o ensure full collaeralzaon. Ths means ha a he expraon of he pus, he oal value of he Treasury bll nvesmen(s) mus be equal o he maxmum possble loss from fnal selemen of he pu opons, or N*K where N s he number of pus sold and K s he a-he-money srke prce. Selecon of he A-he-oney Srke Prce The srke prce of he SPX pus ha are sold s he srke prce of lsed SPX pus ha s closes o bu no greaer han he las value of he S&P 500 Index repored before 11:00 a.m. ET. For example, f he las S&P 500 Index value repored before 11:00 a.m. ET s and he closes lsed SPX pu srke prce below s 1230 hen 1230 srke SPX pus are sold. 1 The hsorcal seres sars on June 30, 1986, a whch me he value of he porfolo was Ths porfolo was naed on he precedng 3 rd Frday, June 19, 1986, when he frs pus were sold and he proceeds from her sale was added o an nal cash njecon.

2 Sale Prce of Pu Opons 2 The SPX pus are deemed o be sold a a prce equal o he volume-weghed average of he raded prces ( VWAP ) of pu opons wh ha srke durng he half-hour perod begnnng a 11:30 a.m. ET. The CBOE calculaes he VWAP n a wo-sep process: frs, he CBOE excludes rades beween 11:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. ET ha are denfed as havng been execued as par of a spread, and hen he CBOE calculaes he weghed average of all remanng ransacon prces a ha srke beween 11:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. ET, wh weghs equal o he fracon of oal non-spread volume ransaced a each prce durng hs perod. The source of he ransacon prces used n he calculaon of he VWAP s CBOE s arke Daa Rereval ( DR ) Sysem. 3 If no ransacons occur a he pu srke beween 11:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. ET, hen he pu opons are deemed sold a he las bd prce repored before 12:00 p.m. ET. Fnal Selemen Prce of Exprng SPX Pus A expraon, he SPX pus are seled o a Specal Openng Quoaon (or SOQ, cker SET ) of he S&P The SOQ s a specal calculaon of he S&P 500 Index ha s compled from he openng prces of componen socks underlyng he S&P 500 Index. The SOQ calculaon s performed when all 500 socks underlyng he S&P 500 Index have opened for radng, and s usually deermned before 11:00 a.m. ET. 5 The fnal selemen prce of he exprng SPX pus s equal o max [0, K- SOQ],.e., he maxmum of 0 and he dfference beween her srke prce and he SOQ. Index Calculaon The CBOE calculaes he PUT n real-me every ffeen seconds durng each radng day excludng roll days. On any gven dae, he ndex represens he mark-o-marke value of he base dae $100 nvesed n he PUT sraegy. A he close of every busness dae, he value of he PUT s equal o he value of he Treasury bll accoun less he mark-o-marke value of he pus: 2 A slghly dfferen roll procedure s used o calculae he hsorcal seres of he CBOE S&P 500 PuWre Index. Ths s o ake no accoun he changes n he mng of he expraon of S&P 500 opons, and o mmc he changes made n he calculaon of he BX seres over me. Up o November 20, 1992, he roll s deemed o ake place a he close of he 3 rd Frday, he srke prce of he pu s deermned a 4:00 p.m. ET. and he pus are deemed sold a he las bd prce before 4:00 p.m. ET. Afer hs dae, he ndex s rolled a 11:00 a.m. ET nsead. And sarng on arch 17, 2006, he pus were sold a he VWAP. 3 Tme & Sales nformaon from CBOE s DR Sysem s dssemnaed hrough he Opons Prce Reporng Auhory (OPRA) and s publcly avalable hrough mos prce quoe vendors. 4 If he hrd Frday s an exchange holday, he pu opon wll be seled agans he SOQ on he prevous busness day and he pu opon wll be seleced on ha day as well. 5 If one or more socks n he S&P 500 Index do no open on he day he SOQ s calculaed, he fnal selemen prce for SPX opons s deermned n accordance wh he Rules and By-Laws of he Opons Clearng Corporaon.

3 PUT N las P where s he oal Treasury bll balance a he close of dae, N las s he number of pu opons sold a he las roll dae, and P s he arhmec average of he las bd and ask prces of he pu opon repored before 4:00 p.m. ET on dae. On all bu roll daes, he Treasury bll balance s obaned by compoundng he one and hree-monh Treasury balances a he prevous busness close a her respecve daly raes. ( 1 r 1 1) where = 1 and 3 for one and hree-monh Treasury blls, and r -1 s he correspondng Treasury bll rae from he prevous o he curren close. The Treasury bll raes beween wo roll daes are obaned by compoundng he daly raes. On every hrd roll dae, he Treasury blls are deemed o maure, he cash s used o pay for fnal selemen of he pus f hey expre n-he-money, and pus are sold. The ne cash balance avalable for renvesmen s: ( 1 r 1 ) 1 Nlasax[0, SOQ ] N P vwap where K old s he srke prce of he pu opons sold a he prevous roll dae, SOQ s he fnal selemen prce on roll dae, N s he number of pus sold and P vwap s he volume-weghed average prce a whch he opons are sold. Ths balance s renvesed a he hree-monh Treasury bll rae. Hence n he monh followng a hrd roll dae, he one-monh Treasury balance s zero. The number of pus sold on any roll dae s se such ha he Treasury balance a he nex roll dae covers he maxmum pu selemen loss: Thrd roll dae: N (1 r ) N ax[0, K SOQ ]) /( K /(1 R ) P ) ( 1 1 las old 3 vwap Oher roll daes: N ]/[ K P *(1 )] [ 1_ Roll 3_ Roll vwap R1 1 1 ax[ 0,(1 r 1) 1 Nlasax[0, SOQ ]]*(1 1) 1_ Roll R (( 1 r 1) 1 n[0,(1 r 1 ) 1 Nlasax[0, SOQ ]])*(1 3) 3_ Roll R where K s he srke prce a whch he pus are sold, and R 1 and R 3 are he oneand hree-monh Treasury bll raes o he nex roll dae.
