* Because we are unable to determine the issue price of the notes for U.S. federal income tax purposes, which could be as low as $994.50 per note, we intend to treat the notes as having an issue price of $994.50 for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Assuming this treatment is correct, the notes will be treated as having original issue discount, the tax consequences of which are described in the accompanying product supplement. If you purchase a note for an amount greater than $994.50, you should read the section “U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences — Acquisition Premium and Amortizable Bond Premium” in the accompanying product supplement. The discussions above and in the accompanying product supplement do not address the consequences to taxpayers subject to special tax accounting rules under Section 451(b).
** Notwithstanding what is provided in the accompanying product supplement, the Interest Payment Dates will be the 25th day of every sixth month, beginning on October 25, 2018 and ending on the Maturity Date.

|By acquiring the notes, you will be bound by and deemed irrevocably to consent to the imposition of any Resolution Measure (as defined in the accompanying product supplement) by the competent resolution authority, which may include the write down of all, or a portion, of any payment on the notes or the conversion of the notes into ordinary shares or other instruments of ownership. In a German insolvency proceeding or in the event of the imposition of Resolution Measures with respect to the Issuer, certain specifically defined senior unsecured debt instruments, including the notes, would rank junior to, without constituting subordinated debt, all other outstanding unsecured unsubordinated obligations of the Issuer, including some of the other senior debt securities issued under the prospectus, and would be satisfied only if all such other senior unsecured obligations of the Issuer have been paid in full. If any Resolution Measure becomes applicable to us, you may lose some or all of your investment in the notes. Please see the accompanying product supplement and prospectus for more information.|
