*The table above provides a hyperlink to the relevant pricing supplement, as applicable, for each of the ETNs.

TVIZ and VIIZ investors will receive on the acceleration date set forth above a cash payment per ETN in an amount equal to the closing indicative value of the respective ETNs on the accelerated valuation date of August 10, 2018.

OIIL investors will receive on the acceleration date set forth above a cash payment per ETN in an amount equal to the arithmetic average of the closing indicative values of such ETNs during the accelerated valuation period. The accelerated valuation period for OIIL will be a period of five consecutive trading days, beginning on August 6, 2018 and ending on August 10, 2018.

UBRT and DBRT investors will receive on the acceleration date set forth above a cash payment per ETN in an amount equal to the closing indicative value of the respective ETNs on the acceleration valuation date of August 10, 2018. The acceleration valuation date for UBRT and DBRT is the final calculation date of the acceleration valuation period, which will be a period of five consecutive calculation dates, beginning on August 6, 2018 and ending on August 10, 2018.

As of the date hereof, Credit Suisse will no longer issue new TVIZ, VIIZ, OIIL, UBRT or DBRT ETNs. Please see the relevant pricing supplement for detailed information relating to the calculation of the accelerated redemption amount or acceleration redemption amount, as applicable, for each such ETN and relating to the acceleration of such ETNs generally.

Credit Suisse expects that the relevant exchanges will allow such ETNs to continue to trade until August 14, 2018. Investors who buy such ETNs at any time for an amount that is greater than the amount they receive upon acceleration (including paying any premium to the accelerated redemption amount or acceleration redemption amount, as applicable, once these amounts have been determined) will suffer a loss on their investment. Furthermore, investors who sell such ETNs at any time for an amount that is less than the amount they would have received upon acceleration (including selling at any discount to the accelerated redemption amount or acceleration redemption amount, as applicable, once these amounts have been determined) will also suffer a loss. In either case, such losses could be significant. Investors will not receive any other compensation or amount for the loss of the investment opportunity of holding such ETNs and investors may be unable to invest in other securities with a similar level of risk and/or that provide a similar investment opportunity as such ETNs.

None of the other ETNs offered by Credit Suisse are affected by this announcement. All dates referenced above are subject to change, including postponement due to certain events.
