For the ISE30 Index value, the closing value of Bloomberg XU030 Index will be used. The USD/TRY exchange rate will be calculated by using the EUR/TRY and EUR/USD exchange rates declared by the European Central Bank on Reuter's ECB37 page, at 2:15 in the afternoon, Frankfurt time. In the calculation of the Gold (USD/Ounce) and Brent Crude Oil (USD/Barrel) prices, the Gold USD/Ounce price fixing announced on Bloomberg GOLDLNPM page in the afternoon (approximately 15:00 London time). As the Brent Crude Oil price, the closing USD/Barrel price of the most nearby options contracts announced at ICE Futures Europe will be taken into account. This price is announced on Bloomberg CO1 <CMDTY> page.

Investment objective of the fund: Our fund, while offering protection for your capital at maturity within the "best effort principle", it will also offer a return in relation to the increase in the ISE30 Index, USD/TL exchange rate, Gold (USD/Ounce) and Brent Crude Oil (USD/Barrel) prices, in proportion with the participation.

The fund will remove the underlying asset, which offers the highest return on the observation dates throughout the term, from the basket, and track the returns of the remaining underlying assets. At the end of the investment period, the arithmetic average of the returns of the underlying assets which have generated the highest return in each observation period will be used to offer investors a return in Turkish Lira (TL), in proportion with the participation. Negative returns will be used in the calculations at the end of the investment period as zero increase in value.

Observation Dates: August 28 2012, November 01 2012, February 05 2013, May 13 2013.

Operation of the fund: There are 4 underlying assets in the fund that will be checked for index values, and there will be 4 observation periods throughout the term.

At the end of the first observation period, out of 4 underlying assets, the performance of the one with the highest positive return compared to the starting price is recorded and the asset is removed from the basket.

At the end of the next observation period, out of the 3 remaining underlying assets, the performance of the one with the highest positive return compared to the starting price is recorded and the asset is removed from the basket.

At the end of the next observation period, out of the 2 remaining underlying assets, the performance of the one with the highest positive return compared to the starting price is recorded and the asset is removed from the basket.

At the end of the last observation period, the positive return of the last remaining underlying asset compared to its starting value is recorded and the asset is removed from the basket.

The investors will receive a return based on the arithmetic average of the returns of the highest yielding assets in each observation period, in proportion with the participation. Negative returns will be used in the calculations as zero increase in value. As the worst case scenario, if no price increase is observed in any of the underlying assets in the observation periods, the investors will only receive back the capital they have invested.
