EU Risk Retention: The Seller as retention holder, in its capacity as the "originator" within the meaning of Article 2(3) of the STS Regulation, has undertaken that it will at all times retain a material net economic interest in the securitisation transaction, which shall in any event not be less than 5%, in accordance with Article 6 of the STS Regulation. As at the Closing Date, such material net economic interest will be held in accordance with paragraph 3 item (c) of Article 6 of the STS Regulation by holding randomly selected exposures, equivalent to not less than 5% of the nominal value of the securitised exposures, where such non-securitised exposures would otherwise have been securitised in the securitisation.

US Risk Retention: The Seller, as the sponsor under the U.S. Risk Retention Rules, does not intend to retain at least 5% of the credit risk of the securitised assets for purposes of compliance with the final rules promulgated under Section 15G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, but rather intends to rely on an exemption provided for in Section .20 of the U.S. Risk Retention Rules regarding non-U.S. transactions that meet certain requirements.

STS: Neither the Issuer, the Seller, the Joint Lead Managers nor the Arrangers have any intention to notify ESMA or otherwise seek designation of the securitisation in connection with which the Notes are issued as 'STS' or 'simple, transparent and standardised' as set out in Chapter 4 of the STS Regulation.
