This proposal is not an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to enter into a transaction. The terms set forth herein are intended for discussion purposes only and are subject to the final expression of the terms of the transaction in the applicable agreements and/or confirmation. Further, while some of the information provided may have been obtained from various published and unpublished sources considered to be reliable, neither Citibank Singapore Limited, Citibank N.A., Citigroup Inc. nor any of their affiliates guarantees its accuracy or completeness or accepts liability for any direct, indirect or consequential losses arising from its use.

The risk of loss in leveraged trading may be substantial. You may sustain loss in excess of your initial margin funds. Placing contingent orders, such as "stop loss" or "stop limit" orders will not necessarily limit losses to the intended amounts. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders and you may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. You shall remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account. While the bank may attempt to contact you in the event of a margin call, if the value of the collateral in your account drops below the Bank's force sell requirements the bank is not required to contact you and can liquidate your trading positions or other assets from your account without contacting you. Prior to entering into any proposed transaction, you should determine, without reliance upon Citibank Singapore Limited, Citibank, N.A. or its affiliates, the economic risks and merits, as well as the legal, tax and accounting characterizations and consequences, of the transaction and that you are able to assume these risks.

You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable in the light of your investment objectives, your financial means and your risk profile.
