3 In-Cap Thematic A medium-term BNP Paribas certificate (AA) – 5 years maximum – Early recall possible from year 4 10% guaranteed coupon in year 1, 2 and 3 Variable coupons with high and unlimited yearly returns Soft capital protection enabling the investor to receive coupons and to redeem 100% of initial capital even when markets are bearish Convincing historical results with a yearly return ranging between 8.16% and 35.88%

4 Why invest in In-Cap Thematic ? For the last 18 months, financial markets have been under stress which has significantly reduced the growth enjoyed over the last 5 years. The mix of sub-prime, credit crisis, weakened consumer confidence, steep commodities increase and high inflation has created a tenuous scenario for investors around the world. Numerous investors have returned to simple risk-free investments, i.e. bank deposits, in order to minimize losses. This trend seems adequate for short term needs, however, investors who seek to create future value for their portfolios will not benefit from long positions taken on a variety of other investment media. How can an investor take advantage of the current market skittishness and take solid positions that will secure future earnings and create value? When times are tough, it makes sense to take a ‘BACK to the BASICS’ strategy. Based on the macro-economic factors that affect all markets, this strategy dictates that the main needs of human beings drive their investments. Enforced by the factor of globalization and the tendency that the emerging markets follow the habits and trends of the developed economies, BNP Paribas has sought to identify sectors that embrace and take advantage of the people’s requirements. Agriculture and Infrastructure are two sectors that are heavily influenced by macro events and will strongly benefit in the future as demographics, growing urban population and higher quality living standards will lead to increased consumption in these sectors and subsequent ancillary sub-sectors. In-Cap Thematic exploits and takes advantage of these trends and rewards the investors with the best of the two worlds: Agriculture and Infrastructure.

10 The In-Cap Thematic Mechanism In year 1 : Payout of a 10% guaranteed coupon In year 2 : Payout of a 10% guaranteed coupon In year 3 : Payout of a 10% guaranteed coupon In year 4 :Early recall with 100% capital redemption + 10% coupon + 100% positive performance of the Reference Basket if the Reference Basket is below the 60% barrier: No coupon is paid out And the product continues the following year In year 5 :The same coupon calculation as in year 4 is retained Capital protection : if the Reference Basket is above the 60% barrier: 100% capital redemption at maturity if the Reference Basket is below the 60% barrier: Redemption = Value of the Reference Basket

11 1 60% (Barrier) Año 3 Year 2 10% Fixed Coupon Year 5 Product continues to next year Year 4 Early Recall with 100% Capital + 10% coupon Early Recall with 100% Capital + 10% coupon + Rise of the Ref Basket Reference Basket value In-Cap Thematic at a Glance 10% Fixed Coupon Year 1Year 3 100% Capital + 10% coupon + Rise of the Ref Basket 100% Capital + 10% coupon Final Value Of Ref Basket 100% (Price at Issue) 10% Fixed Coupon

In Year 4, the Reference Basket has risen by 32%, The investor thus redeems 100% of his capital + a coupon of 10% + Rise of Reference basket = 42% 18% annualised return 160% 10%10%10% 0123 4 Reference Basket 10%10% At the end of year 4 : The Reference Basket has increased by 32% Early recall : 100% Capital Return + 10% coupon + Rise of the Reference basket Total return = 42% +32%

In Year 4, the Reference Basket is above the 60% barrier, at 72%, The investor thus redeems 100% of his capital + a coupon of 10% 10% annualised return 160% 10%10%10% 0123 4 Reference Basket 10%10% At the end of year 4 : The Reference Basket is at 72% Early recall : 100% Capital Return + 10% coupon

14 In-Cap Thematic : Scenarios (3) Unfavorable scenario 40% 60% 80% 100% 120% 140% Year 1, 2 & 3 : A 10% guaranteed Coupon is paid out In Year 1, 2 and 3, the investor receives the 10% guaranteed coupon. In Year 4, the investor receives no coupon, as the Reference Basket is below the 60% barrier. In Year 5, the Reference Basket is below the 60% barrier. The average Final Value of the reference basket is paid out. -2.4% annualised return 160% 10%10%10% 0123 4 Reference Basket 10%10% 5 58% Year 4: The Reference Basket dropped below the 60% barrier =>product continues to following year At the end of year 5 : The Reference Basket has dropped below the 60% barrier No coupon is paid out, and the capital is no longer guaranteed

15 Historical Simulations (1) Investment simulations on historical data have been computed. These simulations allow for testing of the product and its performance on the basis of previous results. Methodology : from 1st January 1990 to 15th April 2004, we simulate an investment of In-Cap Thematic on the basis of historical results of stocks constituting the basket. Number of simulations = 3,693 were computed from January 1990 to April 2004 Yield Minimum8.16% Average13.54% Maximum35.88% Results are outstanding :  In more than 95% of all cases, the product had an early redemption in Year 4  In less than 5% of all cases, redemption was in Year 5  In-Cap Thematic would always have redeemed 100% of initial capital according to past simulations

16 Historical Simulations (2) Distribution of Returns 3,693 simulations were computed from January 1990 to April 2004 Results are outstanding : In 100% of cases, annual yields are more than 8% In 47% of cases, annual yields are superior to 11%

17 Advantages and Drawbacks Advantages: Medium-term maturity : 5 years maximum A 10% return is guaranteed the first 3 years Early recall possible from Year 4 Unlimited upside returns from Year 4 You can potentially win even when there is a market reversal (security effects) Full capital protection if the Reference Basket doesn’t drop below a 60% barrier at maturity No exchange risk Drawbacks: Yearly returns based on the 5 lowest-performing stocks (Reference Basket) Risk of capital loss at maturity Non redistribution of dividends paid out by the stocks of the basket
