** CEFL launched on December 11, 2013. The "Current Yield (annualized)" equals the current Coupon Amount, multiplied by twelve (to annualize such coupon), divided by the closing price of the ETN on its current Coupon Valuation Date, or, if the closing price is not available on that date, then the previous available closing price, and rounded to two decimal places for ease of analysis. The Current Yield is not indicative of future coupon payments, if any, on the ETN. You are not guaranteed any coupon or distribution amount under the ETN.Note: The ETNs listed above pay a variable monthly coupon linked to the cash distributions, if any, on the respective underlying index constituents, less withholding taxes, if any. Variations in the amount of monthly distributions will lead to large variations in the Current Yield as calculated above. As such, the Current Yield for each is not indicative of future coupon payments, if any, on these ETNs. About ETRACS For further information about ETRACS ETNs, go to www.etracs.com.
