Barclays Bank PLC announced today the quarterly coupon amount for the iPath ® S&P MLP ETN (ticker: IMLP) (the “ETNs”).
The iPath ® S&P MLP ETN is linked to the performance of the consolidated Volume-Weighted Average Price level of the S&P MLP Index (the "Index"), and is designed to pay a quarterly coupon. The Index is designed to provide exposure to leading partnerships that trade on major US exchanges and are classified in the GICS ® Energy Sector and GICS ® Gas Utilities Industry. The Index includes both master limited partnerships and publicly traded limited liability companies which have a similar legal structure to MLPs and share the same tax benefits as MLPs. Significant aspects of the tax treatment of the ETNs may be less favorable than a direct investment in MLPs and are uncertain.An investment in iPath ETNs involves significant risks, including possible loss of principal, and may not be suitable for all investors.The ETNs are riskier than ordinary unsecured debt securities and have no principal protection. The ETNs are speculative and may exhibit high volatility. The ETNs are also subject to certain investor fees, which will have a negative effect on the value of the ETNs. For more information regarding the ETNs, including the calculation of the coupon amount, see the prospectus relating to the ETNs. The prospectus relating to the ETNs can be found on EDGAR, the SEC website, at: www.sec.gov. The prospectus is also available on the product website at www.iPathETN.com.
