There can be no assurance that the Brazilian government will not in the future impose more restrictive foreign exchange regulations.

S&P Global Timber & Forestry (Total Return) Index EUR

The S&P Global Timber & Forestry Index is comprised of 25 of the largest publicly traded companies engaged in the ownership, management or the upstream supply chain of forests and timberlands. These companies may be forest products companies, timber REITs, paper products companies, paper packaging companies, or agricultural product companies that are engaged in the ownership, management or the upstream supply chain of forests and timberlands. The index is part of the S&P Global Thematic Indices, which is designed to provide liquid exposure to emerging investment themes that cut across traditional industry definitions and geographical boundaries. The series incorporates a unique selection and weighting scheme that provides diversified and tradable exposure for these themes. Other indices in this series are the S&P Global Alternative Energy Index, the S&P Global Clean Energy Index, the S&P Global Infrastructure Index, the S&P Global Nuclear Energy Index, and the S&P Global Water Index. Index Methodology: The S&P Index Committee follows a set of published guidelines for maintaining the index. Complete details of these guidelines are available on the Web site at www.indices.standardandpoors.com. The index is rebalanced annually on the third Friday of November, when membership and initial constituent weights are set. There are no intra-year index additions, and intra-year deletions occur only because of delistings. Index Membership: • Universe. All publicly listed companies in Standard & Poor’s CapitalIQ (CIQ) database that have the following terms in their business description: Timber, Forest, Lumber, Wood, and/or Plantation. Their primary industry classification based on the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS®) is considered in assigning exposure scores. • Companies that have a GICS classification of Specialized REITs or Forest Products and are primarily engaged in the ownership or management of forests, timberlands or plantations are given an exposure score of 1.0. • Companies are given an exposure score of 0.5 if they have a GICS classifi cation of Paper Products or Paper Packaging and own or manage timberlands or pulp mills as a captive raw material source or have a GICS classification of Forest Products or Agricultural Products, with timber and forestry being an important but not the principal business. Companies with exposure scores of 1.0 or 0.5 from the universe. • Investable Universe. Stocks from the universe must have a developed market listing or an advance emerging market listing, a market capitalization of at least US$ 250 million, and a 3-month daily value traded of more than US$ 2 million, as of the reference date of the year. • Index Constituents. The largest 25 stocks from the investable universe with an exposure score of 1.0 are selected as index members. If the count of stocks with an exposure score of 1.0 is less than 25, the largest stocks with an exposure score of 0.5 are selected until the count reaches 25. Index Weightings: Constituent weights are driven by size, with no single stock having a weight of more than 8% in the index at each rebalancing. The index follows a modified market capitalization weighted scheme that caps single stock concentration at a predefined percentage, while maintaining greater weight to companies more purely exposed to the timber and forestry theme.

A partir du 1er janvier 2009, le Final Termsheet constitue un „prospectus simplifié" au sens de l’article 5 de la loi fédérale sur les placements collectifs de capitaux (LPCC) et des Directives concernant l’information des investisseurs sur les produits structurés de l’Association suisse des banquiers.

Risques généraux relatifs aux warrants et aux produits structurés

Les warrants et les produits structurés décrits sur ces pages Internet (ci-après, collectivement, les „dérivés“) garantissent à l’investisseur le droit d’exiger le paiement d’un montant en espèces ou la livraison de valeurs sous-jacentes. Il n’existe pas de droit au paiement d’intérêts, de dividendes ou d’autres montants courants pouvant compenser d’éventuelles pertes de valeur.
Les dérivés mentionnés sur ces pages Internet ne constituent pas des parts d’un placement collectif de capitaux au sens de la loi fédérale sur les placements collectifs de capitaux (LPCC) et ne sont par conséquent pas non plus soumis à la surveillance de l’Autorité fédérale de surveillance des marchés financiers (FINMA).
En acquérant les dérivés, l’investisseur accepte le risque de solvabilité de l’émetteur et, puisque pour tous les dérivés il existe une garantie de The Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (le „garant“), du garant. Ceci signifie que l’investisseur court le risque d’une perte totale des dérivés en cas d’insolvabilité ou d’autre impossibilité de payer de l’émetteur et du garant. Il n’existe pas, outre la garantie, de sûretés pour les dérivés. L’investisseur devrait dès lors, durant la durée de vie du dérivé qu’il a acquis, s’informer continuellement de la solvabilité de l’émetteur et du garant.
La durée de vie des dérivés est en règle générale limitée. Les pertes sur cours encourues durant la durée de vie des dérivés peuvent dès lors éventuellement ne pas être compensées par des gains sur cours subséquents. Il existe, pour les dérivés sans protection du capital, un risque de perte totale du montant payé lors de l’achat des dérivés, y compris les frais liés à cet achat, et ce indépendamment de la capacité financière de l’émetteur et du garant.
La valeur des dérivés est non seulement déterminée par les changements de cours des instruments sous-jacents du dérivé (par exemple une action, une obligation, etc., le „sous-jacent“), mais aussi par la durée de vie des dérivés, la volatilité du sous-jacent, le changement du credit spread (supplément d’intérêt par rapport à un intérêt sans risque) du garant et par le niveau des taux d’intérêt de l’économie globale. Une diminution de la valeur des dérivés peut dès lors survenir durant la durée de vie alors même que le cours du sous-jacent reste constant.
Les entreprises du groupe Goldman Sachs (ensemble „Goldman Sachs“) peuvent participer à des transactions sur le sous-jacent pour leur compte ou le compte de tiers, émettre de nouveaux dérivés qui présentent les mêmes caractéristiques de construction, ou des caractéristiques semblables, que les dérivés décrits ici, ainsi que procéder à des opérations de couverture afin d’assurer leurs positions. Ces mesures peuvent influencer positivement ou négativement le prix des dérivés. De plus amples informations sont disponibles sur demande.
La valeur des dérivés est déterminée par la valeur du sous-jacent et d’autres facteurs. Elle sera inférieure au prix initial d’émission, en particulier s’agissant des produits structurés directement après leur acquisition, dans la mesure où aucun changement n’est survenu dans les conditions du marché ou concernant d’autres facteurs pertinents.
Le prix fixé par des négociants tiers peut considérablement varier de celui déterminé par Goldman Sachs pour les dérivés. Les investisseurs doivent s’attendre à devoir payer, lors de la vente des dérivés, une prime et une remise en faveur du négociant. Le Programme for the Issuance of Derivatives actuel (le „Programme“) contient de plus amples informations sur l’établissement du prix des dérivés. Vous trouverez dans le Pricing Supplement des produits structurés émis après le 12 novembre 2007 de plus amples informations sur d’éventuelles commissions de vente qui peuvent être incluses dans le prix de vente.
L’évolution de la valeur des dérivés dont le sous-jacent est coté en devise étrangère ne dépend pas seulement du cours du sous-jacent mais aussi du développement de la devise étrangère. Des mouvements défavorables sur les marchés des devises peuvent augmenter le risque de perte.
Les coûts encourus lors de l’achat ou de la vente des dérivés diminuent les chances de gain de l’investisseur. Veuillez dès lors vous informer avant l’acquisition du dérivé de tous les coûts dus lors de l’achat et la vente.
Il n’est pas toujours possible, au cours de la durée de vie des dérivés, de procéder à des opérations excluant les risques initiaux ou à tout le moins les limitant. La possibilité de procéder à de telles opérations dépend des conditions du marché; le cas échéant, elles ne peuvent éventuellement être réalisables qu’à un prix du marché défavorable. En outre, il peut en résulter une perte.
Lorsque vous financez l’acquisition des dérivés par un crédit, vous devez, au cas où vos attentes sont déçues, non seulement assumer la perte enregistrée, mais aussi rembourser le crédit et payer les intérêts. Le risque de perte est ainsi considérablement accru.

Risques particuliers relatifs aux warrants

Les warrants sont des dérivés particulièrement risqués. Une série de facteurs en sont la cause, en particulier l’effet de levier par lequel les variations de cours du sous-jacent influencent plus que proportionnellement la valeur du dérivé. Dit de manière simplifiée (en faisant abstraction d’autres facteurs influençant la valeur, tels que la volatilité et les coûts), cela signifie que, pour un warrant avec un levier de par exemple 10x, une perte totale survient déjà lorsque la valeur du sous-jacent varie de 10% dans la mauvaise direction.
Les warrants qui, conformément à leurs conditions, ne sont pas exercés automatiquement expirent sans valeur si vous ne les exercez pas à temps conformément aux conditions du warrant.
