GS Finance Corp. Announces the Exercise of Its Right to Redeem Its Large Cap Growth Index-Linked ETNs Due 2028
NEW YORK, January 27, 2022 - GS Finance Corp. today announced that it has exercised its right to redeem the outstanding principal amount of its Large Cap Growth Index-Linked ETNs due 2028 (the “ETNs”) in accordance with the terms of the ETNs. The ETNs are currently traded on NYSE Arca, Inc. under the symbol FRLG (CUSIP: 362273302).
As described in the prospectus supplement no. 3,160 dated March 29, 2018, as amended, GS Finance Corp., as issuer of the ETNs, may redeem the ETNs at its option, in whole but not in part, on any valuation date prior to the stated maturity date.
On the redemption date, holders of record on the scheduled business day immediately preceding such date will receive, for each $100 face amount of their ETNs, an amount in cash equal to the closing indicative note value on the redemption valuation date. The redemption valuation date will be the tenth valuation date following this notice, and is expected to be February 10, 2022. The redemption date will be the third business day following the redemption valuation date, and is expected to be February 15, 2022. The expected redemption valuation date set forth in this notice, and the expected redemption date set forth in this notice, could be postponed due to, among other things, the occurrence of a market disruption event or a non-trading day. Investors that trade the ETNs prior to the redemption date may receive less than the closing indicative note value on the redemption valuation date. GS Finance Corp. will no longer issue new units of the ETNs.
Investors in the ETNs should contact the bank or broker through which they hold a beneficial interest in the ETNs for information about obtaining the amount to be paid on the redemption date for the ETNs in which they have a beneficial interest.
If an automatic redemption event occurs on or prior to the redemption valuation date, this notice will be superseded and each $100 face amount of ETNs will be automatically redeemed on the redemption date for the automatic redemption at an amount equal to the automatic redemption note value.
