JPMorgan Chase Announces Its Replacement Rate For Outstanding Securities And Other Instruments Linked To U.S. Dollar LIBOR Ice Swap Rates
New York– April 20, 2023
JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) (“JPMorgan Chase” or the “Firm”) announced today its replacement rate for certain outstanding floating rate and fixed-to-floating rate debt securities and certificates of deposit issued by JPMorgan Chase, JPMorgan Chase Financial Company LLC and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (the “Issuers”) that are linked to U.S. dollar LIBOR ICE Swap Rates (“USD LIBOR ISR”) of one or more tenors.
In March 2021, the Alternative Reference Rates Committee (“ARRC”) suggested a fallback formula (the “ARRC fallback formula”) for USD LIBOR ISR that consists of using the U.S. dollar SOFR ICE Swap Rate (“USD SOFR ISR”), adding the tenor spread adjustment for 3-month U.S. dollar LIBOR of 0.26161% per annum and applying technical adjustments to account for differences in payment frequency and day count conventions between USD LIBOR and SOFR swaps. On June 8, 2022, the ARRC recommended that calculation agents consider the ARRC fallback formula in determining successor rates for USD LIBOR ISR where a legacy position cannot be proactively converted and its fallback provisions cannot be amended.
In the case of any of the above securities or instruments that permit the calculation agent to select a successor rate following the discontinuation of USD LIBOR ISR, the calculation agent has determined that, for the purposes of calculating any payment on any such securities or instruments that is to be determined using one or more USD LIBOR ISR after June 30, 2023, any such USD LIBOR ISR will be replaced by the USD SOFR ISR for the same tenor as such USD LIBOR ISR, subject to the adjustments, including the 0.26161% per annum tenor spread adjustment, in accordance with the ARRC fallback formula.
In the case of any of the above securities or instruments that permit the calculation agent to make a determination of the relevant rate in good faith and in a commercially reasonable manner if any applicable dealer poll does not yield a rate following the discontinuation of any USD LIBOR ISR, the calculation agent has determined that, for the purposes of calculating any payment on any such securities or instruments that is to be determined using one or more USD LIBOR ISR after June 30, 2023, it will reference the same replacement rate described above.
This announcement does not apply to any USD LIBOR ISR-linked securities or other instruments issued by the Issuers that are not governed by New York law and that do not settle through the facilities of The Depository Trust Company.
