Credit Suisse Temporarily Suspends Further Issuance Of VelocityShares Daily 2x Long VIX Short-Term ETN (Ticker Symbol: "TVIX")

NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Credit Suisse announced today that it has temporarily suspended further issuances of the VelocityShares Daily 2x VIX Short-Term ETNs (Ticker Symbol: "TVIX") due to internal limits on the size of the ETNs.  This suspension does not affect the Early Redemption rights of noteholders as described in the pricing supplement.  Other ETNs issued by Credit Suisse are not affected by this suspension.


As disclosed in the pricing supplement relating to the ETNs under the heading "Risk Factors—The Market Price of Your ETNs May Be Influenced By Many Unpredictable Factors," the market value of the ETNs may be influenced by, among other things, the levels of supply and demand for the ETNs. It is possible that the suspension, as described above, may influence the market value of the ETNs. Credit Suisse believes it is possible that the temporary suspension of further issuances may cause an imbalance of supply and demand in the secondary market for the ETNs, which may cause the ETNs to trade at a premium or discount in relation to their indicative value. Therefore, any purchase of the ETNs in the secondary market may be at a purchase price significantly different from their indicative value.

The pricing supplement relating to the ETNs can be found on EDGAR, the SEC website at:
