General Information


Additional Information Regarding the Notes

1.         United States Federal Income Tax Matters

            The following supplements the discussion under the "Tax Matters" section of the Prospectus regarding the U.S. federal income tax treatment of the Notes, and is subject to the limitations and exceptions set forth therein.  Any tax disclosure in the Prospectus or this pricing supplement is of a general nature only, is not exhaustive of all possible tax considerations and is not intended to be, and should not be construed to be, legal, business or tax advice to any particular prospective investor.  Each prospective investor should consult its own tax advisor as to the particular tax consequences to it of the acquisition, ownership, and disposition of the Notes, including the effects of applicable U.S. federal, state, and local tax laws and non-U.S. tax laws and possible changes in tax laws.


            Due to a change in law since the date of the Prospectus, the second paragraph of "-Payments of Interest" under the "United States Holders" section should be updated to read as follows: "Interest paid by the Bank on the Notes constitutes income from sources outside the United States and will, depending on the circumstances, be "passive" or "general" income for purposes of computing the foreign tax credit."


            Information with Respect to Foreign Financial Assets. Owners of "specified foreign financial assets" with an aggregate value in excess of U.S.$50,000 (and in some circumstances, a higher threshold) may be required to file an information report with respect to such assets with their tax returns.  "Specified foreign financial assets" may include financial accounts maintained by foreign financial institutions, as well as the following, but only if they are held for investment and not held in accounts maintained by financial institutions:  (i) stocks and securities issued by non-United States persons, (ii) financial instruments and contracts that have non-United States issuers or counterparties, and (iii) interests in foreign entities.  Holders are urged to consult their tax advisors regarding the application of this reporting requirement to their ownership of the Notes.


            Medicare Tax. A United States holder that is an individual or estate, or a trust that does not fall into a special class of trusts that is exempt from such tax, is subject to a 3.8% tax (the "Medicare tax") on the lesser of (1) the United States holder's "net investment income" (or "undistributed net investment income" in the case of an estate or trust) for the relevant taxable year and (2) the excess of the United States holder's modified adjusted gross income for the taxable year over a certain threshold (which in the case of individuals is between U.S.$125,000 and U.S.$250,000, depending on the individual's circumstances). A holder's net investment income will generally include its interest income and its net gains from the disposition of Notes, unless such interest income or net gains are derived in the ordinary course of the conduct of a trade or business (other than a trade or business that consists of certain passive or trading activities). United States holders that are individuals, estates or trusts are urged to consult their tax advisors regarding the applicability of the Medicare tax to their income and gains in respect of their investment in the Notes.
