UniCredit Bank AG issues guarantee bond DAXglobal® Alternative Energy Index GarantAnleihe 2010–2016

The UniCredit Bank AG guarantee bond DAXglobal® Alternative Energy Index GarantAnleihe 2010–2016 is an offer to customers looking to profit from growth opportunities among globally active alternative and renewable energy companies – with 100 % capital protection at maturity.

The issue by UniCredit Bank AG (formerly HVB) is being launched as a six-year euro-denominated structured bond. The bond matures on 14 July 2016 with a capital protection of at least 100 % of the nominal value and a participation rate of 80 % in the positive growth of the DAXglobal® Alternative Energy (Price) Index based on the closing price of the index on 9 July 2010. The change of the index end value over the index start value is calculated on the basis of the average value of 24 quarterly observation dates. The bond is liquid and can be actively traded under normal market conditions every trading day during its term to maturity at the price at the time of trade, making this a highly flexible investment.

The DAXglobal® Alternative Energy (Price) Index tracks the performance of the world’s 15 largest alternative and renewable energy companies. The index comprises the three largest companies from each of five energy sectors (wind power, solar power, natural gas, ethanol and geothermic energy), with equal sector weightings. The constituents are selected on the basis of market capitalisation as well as a minimum average exchange trading volume of USD 1 million. The composition of the DAXglobal® Alternative Energy (Price) Index is reviewed once a year (in September) and adjusted if necessary.
