Buffered Return Enhanced Notes Linked to a Basket Consisting of the AMEX Hong Kong 30 Index, the FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index, the Korea Stock Price Index 200, the MSCI Singapore Index and the MSCI Taiwan Index due May 14, 2009

General

Key Terms

Basket:

The notes are linked to a basket consisting of the AMEX Hong Kong 30 Index (“HKX”), the FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index (“XIN0I”), the Korea Stock Price Index 200 (“KOSPI2”), the MSCI Singapore Index (“SGY”) and the MSCI Taiwan Index (“TWY”) (each a “Basket Index,” and together, the “Basket Indices”).

Component Weightings:

The AMEX Hong Kong Weighting is 16.50%, the FTSE/Xinhua Weighting is 28.00%, the KOSPI 200 Weighting is 26.50%, the MSCI Singapore Weighting is 8.00% and the MSCI Taiwan Weighting is 21.00% (each a “Component Weighting,” and collectively, the “Component Weightings”).

Upside Leverage Factor:

2

Payment at Maturity:

If the Ending Basket Level is greater than the Starting Basket Level, you will receive a cash payment that provides you with a return per $1,000 principal amount note equal to the Basket Return multiplied by two, subject to a Maximum Total Return on the notes of 22.30%*. For example, if the Basket Return is more than 11.15%, you will receive the Maximum Total Return on the notes of 22.30%*, which entitles you to the maximum payment of $1,223 at maturity for every $1,000 principal amount note that you hold. Accordingly, if the Basket Return is positive, your payment per $1,000 principal amount note will be calculated as follows, subject to the Maximum Total Return:

 

$1,000 + [$1,000 x (Basket Return x 2)]

 

* The actual Maximum Total Return on the notes will be set on the pricing date and will not be less than 22.30%.

 

Your principal is protected against up to a 10% decline in the Basket at maturity. If the Ending Basket Level declines from the Starting Basket Level by up to 10%, you will receive the principal amount of your notes at maturity.

If the Ending Basket Level declines from the Starting Basket Level by more than 10%, you will lose 1.1111% of the principal amount of your notes for every 1% that the Basket declines beyond 10% and your final payment per $1,000 principal amount note will be calculated as follows:

 

$1,000 + [$1,000 x (Basket Return + 10%) x 1.1111]

 

You will lose some or all of your investment at maturity if the Ending Basket Level declines from the Starting Basket Level by more than 10%.

Buffer Amount:

10%

Downside Leverage Factor:

1.1111

Basket Return:

The performance of the Basket from the Starting Basket Level to the Ending Basket Level, calculated as follows:

Ending Basket Level – Starting Basket Level
Starting Basket Level

Starting Basket Level:

Set equal to 100 on the pricing date.

Ending Basket Level:

The arithmetic average of the Basket Closing Levels on the five Ending Averaging Dates.

Basket Closing Level:

For each of the Ending Averaging Dates, the Basket Closing Level will be calculated as follows:

 

100 x [1 + ((AMEX Hong Kong Return * AMEX Hong Kong Weighting) + (FTSE/Xinhua Return * FTSE/Xinhua Weighting) + (KOSPI 200 Return * KOSPI 200 Weighting) + (MSCI Singapore Return * MSCI Singapore Weighting) + (MSCI Taiwan Return * MSCI Taiwan Weighting))]

 

Each of the returns set forth in the formula above reflects the performance of the relevant Basket Index, expressed as a percentage, from the closing level of that Basket Index on the pricing date to the closing level of that Basket Index on the relevant Ending Averaging Date.

Ending Averaging Dates :

May 4, 2009, May 6, 2009, May 7, 2009, May 8, 2009 and May 11, 2009

Maturity Date :

May 14, 2009

Hypothetical Examples of Amounts Payable at Maturity

The following examples illustrate how the total returns set forth in the table on the previous page and the graph above are calculated.

Example 1: The level of the Basket increases from a Starting Basket Level of 100 to an Ending Basket Level of 105. Because the Ending Basket Level of 105 is greater than the Starting Basket Level of 100 and the Basket Return of 5% multiplied by 2 does not exceed the hypothetical Maximum Total Return of 22.30%, the investor receives a payment at maturity of $1,100 per $1,000 principal amount note, calculated as follows:

$1,000 + [$1,000 x (5% x 2)] = $1,100

Example 2: The level of the Basket decreases from a Starting Basket Level of 100 to an Ending Basket Level of 90. Because the Ending Basket Level of 90 is less than the Starting Basket Level of 100 by not more than the Buffer Amount of 10%, the investor receives a payment at maturity of $1,000 per $1,000 principal amount note.

Example 3: The level of the Basket increases from a Starting Basket Level of 100 to an Ending Basket Level of 120. Because the Ending Basket Level of 120 is greater than the Starting Basket Level of 100 and the Basket Return of 20% multiplied by 2 exceeds the hypothetical Maximum Total Return of 22.30%, the investor receives a payment at maturity of $1,223 per $1,000 principal amount note, the maximum payment on the notes.

Example 4: The level of the Basket decreases from a Starting Basket Level of 100 to an Ending Basket Level of 80. Because the Ending Basket Level of 80 is less than the Starting Basket Level of 100 by more than the Buffer Amount of 10%, the Basket Return is negative and the investor receives a payment at maturity of $888.89 per $1,000 principal amount note, calculated as follows:

$1,000 + [$1,000 x (-20% + 10%) x 1.1111] = $888.89

Supplemental Information — Transition of the MSCI Singapore Index and the MSCI Taiwan Index to a New Index Methodology

     The information contained in this section supplements the information set forth under “The MSCI Singapore Index” and “The MSCI Taiwan Index” in the accompanying product supplement no. 54-IV. We have derived all information regarding the MSCI Singapore Index and the MSCI Taiwan Index (the “MSCI Indices”) contained in this section from the MSCI Global Investable Market Indices Methodology published by MSCI and other publicly available information. We make no representation or warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of such information. Additional information concerning the transition of the MSCI Indices may be obtained from the MSCI website (www.mscibarra.com). Information contained in the MSCI website is not incorporated by reference in, and should not be considered part of, this term sheet or the accompanying product supplement no. 54-IV.

Transition

     MSCI recently announced changes to the methodology used to calculate its MSCI Standard Indices, including the MSCI Indices. The current MSCI Standard and MSCI Small Cap Indices, along with the other MSCI equity indices based on them, are transitioning to the Global Investable Market Indices methodology described below. During the transition period, MSCI will publish the MSCI Provisional Standard and Provisional Small Cap Indices to assist investors in understanding the changes that would occur if the Global Investable Market Indices methodology were immediately implemented in the current MSCI Standard and Small Cap Indices. The first phase of the transition of the MSCI Standard Indices, which include the MSCI Indices, was completed on November 30, 2007. Currently, half of the differences between the Provisional Standard Indices or the Provisional Small Cap Indices, as applicable, and the Standard Indices or Small Cap Indices, as applicable, have been implemented. All companies in a Provisional Standard Index or Provisional Small Cap Index, as applicable, not in the corresponding Standard Index or Small Cap Index were added to the Standard Index or Small Cap Index, as applicable, at half of their free float-adjusted market capitalization, and companies previously in the Standard Index or Small Cap Index, as applicable, and not in the corresponding Provisional Standard Index or Provisional Small Cap Index, as applicable, had half of their free float-adjusted market capitalization removed.

     The second phase of the transition of the MSCI Standard and the MSCI Small Cap Indices to the MSCI Global Investable Market Indices methodology will take place on May 30, 2008 (the first phase having been completed on November 30, 2007). The final additions and deletions of constituents for the second phase will be announced at least four weeks in advance of their implementation in the Standard and Small Cap Indices. All indices derived from the MSCI Standard Indices will follow the two-phase transition, except for the MSCI Euro and Pan Euro Indices which were transitioned in one phase on November 30, 2007. The transition will be synchronized for all markets and composites.

     At the end of the transition period (May 30, 2008), the current MSCI Standard Indices will be composed of the MSCI Large Cap and Mid Cap Indices. The current MSCI Small Cap Index will transition to the MSCI Small Cap Index resulting from the new methodology. Together, the relevant MSCI Large Cap, Mid Cap and Small Cap Indices will make up the MSCI Investable Market Index for each country, composite, sector and style index that MSCI offers.

Constructing the MSCI Global Investable Market Indices

     MSCI undertakes an index construction process, which involves: (i) defining the Equity Universe; (ii) determining the Market Investable Equity Universe for each market; (iii) determining market capitalization size segments for each market; (iv) applying Index Continuity Rules for the MSCI Standard Index; (v) creating style segments within each size segment within each market; and (vi) classifying securities under the Global Industry Classification Standard (the “GICS”).

      Defining the Equity Universe

  (i) Identifying Eligible Equity Securities: The Equity Universe initially looks at securities listed in any of the countries in the MSCI Global Index Series, which will be classified as either Developed Markets (“DM”) or Emerging Markets (“EM”). All listed equity securities, or listed securities that exhibit characteristics of equity securities, except mutual funds, ETFs, equity derivatives, limited partnerships, and most investment trusts, are eligible for inclusion in the Equity Universe. Real Estate Investment Trusts (“REITs”) in some countries and certain income trusts in Canada are also eligible for inclusion.

  (ii) Country Classification of Eligible Securities: Each company and its securities (i.e., share classes) are classified in one and only one country, which allows for a distinctive sorting of each company by its respective country.

      Determining the Market Investable Equity Universes

      A Market Investable Equity Universe for a market is derived by applying investability screens to individual companies and securities in the Equity Universe that are classified in that market. A market is equivalent to a single country, except in DM Europe, where all DM countries in Europe are aggregated into a single market for index construction purposes. Subsequently, individual DM Europe country indices within the MSCI Europe Index are derived from the constituents of the MSCI Europe Index under the Global Investable Market Indices methodology.

      The investability screens used to determine the Investable Equity Universe in each market are as follows:

  (i) Equity Universe Minimum Size Requirement: This investability screen is applied at the company level. In order to be included in a Market Investable Equity Universe, a company must have the required minimum full market capitalization.

  (ii) Equity Universe Minimum Float-Adjusted Market Capitalization Requirement: This investability screen is applied at the individual security level. To be eligible for inclusion in a Market Investable Equity Universe, a security must have a free float-adjusted market capitalization equal to or higher than 50% of the Equity Universe Minimum Size Requirement.

 TS-6


  (iii) DM and EM Minimum Liquidity Requirement: This investability screen is applied at the individual security level. To be eligible for inclusion in a Market Investable Equity Universe, a security must have adequate liquidity. The Annualized Traded Value Ratio (“ATVR”), a measure that offers the advantage of screening out extreme daily trading volumes and taking into account the free float-adjusted market capitalization size of securities, is used to measure liquidity. In the calculation of the ATVR, the trading volumes in depository receipts associated with that security, such as ADRs or GDRs, are also considered. A minimum liquidity level of 20% ATVR is required for inclusion of a security in a Market Investable Equity Universe of a Developed Market, and a minimum liquidity level of 15% ATVR is required for inclusion of a security in a Market Investable Equity Universe of an Emerging Market.

  (iv) Global Minimum Foreign Inclusion Factor Requirement: This investability screen is applied at the individual security level. To be eligible for inclusion in a Market Investable Equity Universe, a security’s Foreign Inclusion Factor (“FIF”) must reach a certain threshold. The FIF of a security is defined as the proportion of shares outstanding that is available for purchase in the public equity markets by international investors. This proportion accounts for the available free float of and/or the foreign ownership limits applicable to a specific security (or company). In general, a security must have an FIF equal to or larger than 0.15 to be eligible for inclusion in a Market Investable Equity Universe.

  (v) Minimum Length of Trading Requirement: This investability screen is applied at the individual security level. For an initial public offering (“IPO”) to be eligible for inclusion in a Market Investable Equity Universe, the new issue must have started trading at least four months before the implementation of the initial construction of the index or at least three months before the implementation of a Semi-Annual Index Review. This requirement is applicable to small new issues in all markets. Large IPOs are not subject to the Minimum Length of Trading Requirement and may be included in a Market Investable Equity Universe and the Standard Index outside of a Quarterly or Semi-Annual Index Review.

      Defining Market Capitalization Size Segments for Each Market

     Once a Market Investable Equity Universe is defined, it is segmented into the following size-based indices:

     Creating the Size Segment Indices in each market involves the following steps: (i) defining the Market Coverage Target Range for each size segment; (ii) determining the Global Minimum Size Range for each size segment; (iii) determining the Market Size-Segment Cutoffs and associated Segment Number of Companies; (iv) assigning companies to the size segments; and (v) applying final size-segment investability requirements.

      Index Continuity Rules for the Standard Indices

     In order to achieve index continuity, as well as provide some basic level of diversification within a market index, notwithstanding the effect of other index construction rules, a minimum number of five constituents will be maintained for a DM Standard Index and a minimum number of three constituents will be maintained for an EM Standard Index.

     If after the application of the index construction methodology, a Standard Index contains fewer than five securities in a Developed Market or three securities in an Emerging Market, then the largest securities by free float-adjusted market capitalization are added to the Standard Index in order to reach five constituents in that Developed Market or three in that Emerging Market. At subsequent Index Reviews, if the free float-adjusted market capitalization of a non-index constituent is at least 1.50 times the free float-adjusted market capitalization of the smallest existing constituent after rebalancing, the larger free float-adjusted market capitalization security replaces the smaller one.

      Creating Style Indices within Each Size Segment

     All securities in the investable equity universe are classified into Value or Growth segments using the MSCI Global Value and Growth methodology.

      Classifying Securities under the Global Industry Classification Standard

     All securities in the Global Investable Equity Universe are assigned to the industry that best describes their business activities. To this end, MSCI has designed, in conjunction with Standard & Poor’s, the Global Industry Classification Standard. Under the GICS, each company is assigned uniquely to one sub-industry according to its principal business activity. Therefore, a company can belong to only one industry grouping at each of the four levels of the GICS.

Index Maintenance

     The MSCI Global Investable Market Indices are maintained with the objective of reflecting the evolution of the underlying equity markets and segments on a timely basis, while seeking to achieve index continuity, continuous investability of constituents and replicability of the indices, and index stability and low index turnover.

 TS-7

In particular, index maintenance involves:

  (i) Semi-Annual Index Reviews (“SAIRs”) in May and November of the Size Segment and Global Value and Growth Indices which include:

     The objective of the SAIRs is to systematically reassess the various dimensions of the Equity Universe for all markets on a fixed semi-annual timetable. A SAIR involves a comprehensive review of the Size Segment and Global Value and Growth Indices.

  (ii) Quarterly Index Reviews (“QIRs”) in February and August of the Size Segment Indices aimed at:

     QIRs are designed to ensure that the indices continue to be an accurate reflection of the evolving equity marketplace. This is achieved by a timely reflection of significant market driven changes that were not captured in the index at the time of their actual occurrence but are significant enough to be reflected before the next SAIR. QIRs may result in additions or deletions due to migration to another Size Segment Index, and changes in FIFs and in NOS. Only additions of significant new investable companies are considered, and only for the Standard Index. The buffer zones used to manage the migration of companies from one segment to another are wider than those used in the SAIR. The style classification is reviewed only for companies that are reassigned to a different size segment.

  (iii) Ongoing event-related changes. Ongoing event-related changes to the indices are the result of mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs,bankruptcies, reorganizations and other similar corporate events. They can also result from capital reorganizations in the form of rights issues, bonus issues, public placements and other similar corporate actions that take place on a continuing basis. These changes generally are reflected in the indices at the time of the event. Significantly large IPOs are included in the indices after the close of the company’s tenth day of trading.

Announcement Policy

     The results of the SAIRs are announced at least two weeks in advance of their effective implementation dates as of the close of the last business day of May and November.

     The results of the QIRs are announced at least two weeks in advance of their effective implementation dates as of the close of the last business day of February and August.

     All changes resulting from corporate events are announced prior to their implementation.

     The changes are typically announced at least ten business days prior to the changes becoming effective in the indices as an “expected” announcement, or as an “undetermined” announcement, when the effective dates are not known yet or when aspects of the event are uncertain. MSCI sends “confirmed” announcements at least two business days prior to events becoming effective in the indices, provided that all necessary public information concerning the event is available. The full list of all new and pending changes is delivered to clients on a daily basis, at 5:30 p.m., US Eastern Time.

     In exceptional cases, events are announced during market hours for same or next day implementation. Announcements made by MSCI during market hours are usually linked to late company disclosure of corporate events or unexpected changes to previously announced corporate events.

     In the case of secondary offerings representing more than 5% of a security’s number of shares for existing constituents, these changes will be announced prior to the end of the subscription period when possible and a subsequent announcement confirming the details of the event (including the date of implementation) will be made as soon as the results are available.

     Both primary equity offerings and secondary offerings for U.S. securities, representing at least 5% of the security’s number of shares, will be confirmed through an announcement during market hours for next day or shortly after implementation, as the completion of the events cannot be confirmed prior to the notification of the pricing.

     Early deletions of constituents due to bankruptcy or other significant cases are announced as soon as practicable prior to their implementation.
