Trigger Jump Securities Based on the Performance of the Common Stock of United States Steel Corporation due November 2, 2022

Principal at Risk Securities

Unlike conventional debt securities, the securities will pay no interest and do not guarantee any return of principal at maturity. Instead, if the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the initial underlier value, at maturity investors will receive the stated principal amount plus a positive return equal to the fixed percentage of 46.00%. If the final underlier value is less than the initial underlier value but greater than or equal to the trigger value, which is equal to 80% of the initial underlier value, at maturity investors will receive the stated principal amount. However, if the final underlier value is less than the trigger value, at maturity investors will lose 1% of the stated principal amount for every 1% that the final underlier value is less than the initial underlier value. Under these circumstances, the amount investors receive will be less than 80% of the stated principal amount and could be zero. The securities are for investors who are willing and able to risk their principal and forgo current income in exchange for the opportunity to receive a return equal to the fixed percentage if the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the initial underlier value and the limited protection against loss, which applies only if the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the trigger value. Investors may lose their entire initial investment in the securities. Any positive return on the securities will be limited to the fixed percentage and you will not participate in any appreciation in the value of the underlier above the fixed percentage, which may be significant. The securities are unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of Barclays Bank PLC. Any payment on the securities, including any repayment of principal, is subject to the creditworthiness of Barclays Bank PLC and is not guaranteed by any third party. If Barclays Bank PLC were to default on its payment obligations or become subject to the exercise of any U.K. Bail-in Power (as described on page 5 of this document) by the relevant U.K. resolution authority, you might not receive any amounts owed to you under the securities. See “Risk Factors” and “Consent to U.K. Bail-in Power” in this document and “Risk Factors” in the accompanying prospectus supplement.

Additional Information Regarding Our Estimated Value of the Securities

 

Our internal pricing models take into account a number of variables and are based on a number of subjective assumptions, which may or may not materialize, typically including volatility, interest rates and our internal funding rates. Our internal funding rates (which are our internally published borrowing rates based on variables, such as market benchmarks, our appetite for borrowing and our existing obligations coming to maturity) may vary from the levels at which our benchmark debt securities trade in the secondary market. Our estimated value on the pricing date is based on our internal funding rates. Our estimated value of the securities might be lower if such valuation were based on the levels at which our benchmark debt securities trade in the secondary market.

 

Our estimated value of the securities on the pricing date is less than the initial issue price of the securities. The difference between the initial issue price of the securities and our estimated value of the securities results from several factors, including any sales commissions to be paid to Barclays Capital Inc. or another affiliate of ours, any selling concessions, discounts, commissions or fees to be allowed or paid to non-affiliated intermediaries, the estimated profit that we or any of our affiliates expect to earn in connection with structuring the securities, the estimated cost that we may incur in hedging our obligations under the securities, and estimated development and other costs that we may incur in connection with the securities. These other costs will include a fee paid to LFT Securities, LLC, an entity in which an affiliate of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management has an ownership interest, for providing certain electronic platform services with respect to this offering.

 

Our estimated value on the pricing date is not a prediction of the price at which the securities may trade in the secondary market, nor will it be the price at which Barclays Capital Inc. may buy or sell the securities in the secondary market. Subject to normal market and funding conditions, Barclays Capital Inc. or another affiliate of ours intends to offer to purchase the securities in the secondary market but it is not obligated to do so.

 

Assuming that all relevant factors remain constant after the pricing date, the price at which Barclays Capital Inc. may initially buy or sell the securities in the secondary market, if any, and the value that we may initially use for customer account statements, if we provide any customer account statements at all, may exceed our estimated value on the pricing date for a temporary period expected to be approximately 40 days after the initial issue date of the securities because, in our discretion, we may elect to effectively reimburse to investors a portion of the estimated cost of hedging our obligations under the securities and other costs in connection with the securities that we will no longer expect to incur over the term of the securities. We made such discretionary election and determined this temporary reimbursement period on the basis of a number of factors, which may include the tenor of the securities and/or any agreement we may have with the distributors of the securities. The amount of our estimated costs that we effectively reimburse to investors in this way may not be allocated ratably throughout the reimbursement period, and we may discontinue such reimbursement at any time or revise the duration of the reimbursement period after the initial issue date of the securities based on changes in market conditions and other factors that cannot be predicted.

 

We urge you to read “Risk Factors” beginning on page 11 of this document.

Consent to U.K. Bail-in Power

 

Notwithstanding and to the exclusion of any other term of the securities or any other agreements, arrangements or understandings between us and any holder or beneficial owner of the securities, by acquiring the securities, each holder and beneficial owner of the securities acknowledges, accepts, agrees to be bound by and consents to the exercise of, any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority.

 

Under the U.K. Banking Act 2009, as amended, the relevant U.K. resolution authority may exercise a U.K. Bail-in Power in circumstances in which the relevant U.K. resolution authority is satisfied that the resolution conditions are met. These conditions include that a U.K. bank or investment firm is failing or is likely to fail to satisfy the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (the “FSMA”) threshold conditions for authorization to carry on certain regulated activities (within the meaning of section 55B FSMA) or, in the case of a U.K. banking group company that is a European Economic Area (“EEA”) or third country institution or investment firm, that the relevant EEA or third country relevant authority is satisfied that the resolution conditions are met in respect of that entity.

 

The U.K. Bail-in Power includes any write-down, conversion, transfer, modification and/or suspension power, which allows for (i) the reduction or cancellation of all, or a portion, of the principal amount of, interest on, or any other amounts payable on, the securities; (ii) the conversion of all, or a portion, of the principal amount of, interest on, or any other amounts payable on, the securities into shares or other securities or other obligations of Barclays Bank PLC or another person (and the issue to, or conferral on, the holder or beneficial owner of the securities such shares, securities or obligations); (iii) the cancellation of the securities and/or (iv) the amendment or alteration of the maturity of the securities, or amendment of the amount of interest or any other amounts due on the securities, or the dates on which interest or any other amounts become payable, including by suspending payment for a temporary period; which U.K. Bail-in Power may be exercised by means of a variation of the terms of the securities solely to give effect to the exercise by the relevant U.K. resolution authority of such U.K. Bail-in Power. Each holder and beneficial owner of the securities further acknowledges and agrees that the rights of the holders or beneficial owners of the securities are subject to, and will be varied, if necessary, solely to give effect to, the exercise of any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority. For the avoidance of doubt, this consent and acknowledgment is not a waiver of any rights holders or beneficial owners of the securities may have at law if and to the extent that any U.K. Bail-in Power is exercised by the relevant U.K. resolution authority in breach of laws applicable in England.

 

For more information, please see “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to the Issuer—You may lose some or all of your investment if any U.K. bail-in power is exercised by the relevant U.K. resolution authority” in this document as well as “U.K. Bail-in Power,” “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to the Securities Generally—Regulatory action in the event a bank or investment firm in the Group is failing or likely to fail could materially adversely affect the value of the securities” and “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to the Securities Generally—Under the terms of the securities, you have agreed to be bound by the exercise of any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority” in the accompanying prospectus supplement.

 

The preceding discussion supersedes the discussion in the accompanying prospectus and prospectus supplement to the extent it is inconsistent therewith.

Investment Summary

 

Trigger Jump Securities

 

Principal at Risk Securities

 

The Trigger Jump Securities Based on the Performance of the Common Stock of United States Steel Corporation due November 2, 2022 (the “securities”) can be used:

 

§ As an alternative to direct exposure to the underlier that provides for the potential of a fixed positive return if the underlier appreciates at all (or remains flat) in lieu of full participation in any appreciation of the underlier

 

§ To enhance returns and potentially outperform the underlier in a moderately bullish scenario

 

§ To provide limited protection against a loss of principal in the event of a decline of the underlier from the pricing date to the valuation date, but only if the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the trigger value

 

Any positive return on the securities will be limited to the fixed percentage and you will not participate in any appreciation in the value of the underlier above the fixed percentage, which may be significant.

 

If the final underlier value is less than the trigger value, the securities are exposed on a 1:1 basis to the negative performance of the underlier.

 

  Maturity: Approximately 1.25 years
  Fixed percentage: 46.00%
  Trigger value: 80% of the initial underlier value
  Minimum payment at maturity: None. Investors may lose their entire initial investment in the securities.
  Interest: None

 

Key Investment Rationale

 

The securities are for investors who are willing and able to risk their principal and forgo current income in exchange for the opportunity to receive a return equal to the fixed percentage if the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the initial underlier value and the limited protection against loss, which applies only if the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the trigger value. Investors may lose their entire initial investment in the securities.

 

The following scenarios reflect the potential payment on the securities, if any, at maturity:

 

Upside Scenario The final underlier value is greater than or equal to the initial underlier value. In this case, at maturity, the securities pay the stated principal amount of $10 plus a positive return equal to the fixed percentage of 46.00%.
Par Scenario The final underlier value is less than the initial underlier value but greater than or equal to the trigger value. In this case, at maturity, the securities pay the stated principal amount of $10 per security even though the value of the underlier has declined.
Downside Scenario The final underlier value is less than the trigger value. In this case, at maturity, the securities pay less than 80% of the stated principal amount and the percentage loss of the stated principal amount will be equal to the percentage decrease from the initial underlier value to the final underlier value. For example, if the final underlier value is 55% less than the initial underlier value, the securities will pay $4.50 per security, or 45% of the stated principal amount, for a loss of 55% of the stated principal amount. There is no minimum payment at maturity on the securities. Accordingly, investors could lose their entire investment in the securities.

Scenario Analysis

 

§ Upside Scenario. If the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the initial underlier value, at maturity investors will receive the $10 stated principal amount plus a positive return equal to the fixed percentage of 46.00%.

 

§ For example, if the underlier appreciates by 5%, at maturity investors would receive a return equal to the fixed percentage of 46.00%, or $14.60 per security.

 

§ If the underlier appreciates by 60%, at maturity investors would receive a return equal to the fixed percentage of 46.00%, or $14.60 per security, even though the underlier has appreciated by more than the fixed percentage.

 

§ Par Scenario. If the final underlier value is less than the initial underlier value but greater than or equal to the trigger value, at maturity investors will receive the stated principal amount of $10 per security.

 

§ For example, if the underlier depreciates by 5%, at maturity investors would receive the $10 stated principal amount per security.

 

July 2021 Page 8

 

 

Trigger Jump Securities Based on the Performance of the Common Stock of United States Steel Corporation due November 2, 2022

Principal at Risk Securities

 
§ Downside Scenario. If the final underlier value is less than the trigger value, at maturity investors will receive an amount that is less than 80% of the $10 stated principal amount and that will reflect a 1% loss of principal for each 1% decline in the underlier. Investors may lose their entire initial investment in the securities.

 

§ For example, if the underlier depreciates by 50%, investors would lose 50% of their principal and receive only $5.00 per security at maturity, or 50% of the stated principal amount.

 

What Is the Total Return on the Securities at Maturity, Assuming a Range of Performances for the Underlier?

 

The following table and examples illustrate the hypothetical payment at maturity and hypothetical total return at maturity on the securities. The “total return” as used in this document is the number, expressed as a percentage, that results from comparing the payment at maturity per $10 stated principal amount to $10.00. The table and examples set forth below assume a hypothetical initial underlier value of $100.00 and a hypothetical trigger value of $80.00 (or 80% of the hypothetical initial underlier value) and reflect the fixed percentage of 46.00%. The hypothetical initial underlier value of $100.00 has been chosen for illustrative purposes only and does not represent the actual initial underlier value. Please see “United States Steel Corporation Overview” below for recent actual values of the underlier. The actual initial underlier value and trigger value are set forth on the cover page of this document. Each hypothetical payment at maturity or total return set forth below is for illustrative purposes only and may not be the actual payment at maturity or total return applicable to a purchaser of the securities. The numbers appearing in the following table and examples have been rounded for ease of analysis. The table and examples below do not take into account any tax consequences from investing in the securities.

Hypothetical Examples of Amount Payable at Maturity

 

The following examples illustrate how the payment at maturity and total return in different hypothetical scenarios are calculated.

 

Example 1: The value of the underlier increases from the initial underlier value of $100.00 to a final underlier value of $160.00.

 

Because the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the initial underlier value, the payment at maturity is calculated as follows:

 

$10 + ($10 × fixed percentage)

 

= $10 + ($10 × 46.00%)

 

= $14.600

 

Because the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the initial underlier value, the payment at maturity is equal to $14.600 per security, representing a total return of 46.00% on the securities, even though the underlier appreciated by 60.00% from its initial underlier value to its final underlier value.

 

Example 2: The value of the underlier increases from the initial underlier value of $100.00 to a final underlier value of $110.00.

 

Because the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the initial underlier value, the payment at maturity is calculated as follows:

 

$10 + ($10 × fixed percentage)

 

= $10 + ($10 × 46.00%)

 

= $14.600

 

Because the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the initial underlier value, the payment at maturity is equal to $14.600 per security, representing a total return of 46.00% on the securities.

 

Example 3: The value of the underlier decreases from the initial underlier value of $100.00 to a final underlier value of $90.00.

 

Because the final underlier value is less than the initial underlier value but greater than or equal to the trigger value, the payment at maturity is equal to the stated principal amount of $10.000 per security.

 

The total return on the securities is 0.00%.

 

Example 4: The value of the underlier decreases from the initial underlier value of $100.00 to a final underlier value of $50.00.

 

Because the final underlier value is less than the trigger value and the underlier performance factor is 50%, the payment at maturity is equal to $5.000 per security, calculated as follows:

 

$10 × underlier performance factor

 

= $10 × (final underlier value / initial underlier value)

 

= $10 × ($50.00 / $100.00) = $5.000

 

The total return on the securities is -50.00%.

Risk Factors

 

An investment in the securities involves significant risks. We urge you to consult your investment, legal, tax, accounting and other advisors before you invest in the securities. Investing in the securities is not equivalent to investing directly in the underlier. Some of the risks that apply to an investment in the securities are summarized below, but we urge you to read the more detailed explanation of risks relating to the securities generally in the “Risk Factors” section of the prospectus supplement. You should not purchase the securities unless you understand and can bear the risks of investing in the securities.

 

 Risks Relating to the Securities Generally

 

§ The securities do not pay interest or guarantee the return of any principal. The terms of the securities differ from those of ordinary debt securities in that the securities do not pay interest or guarantee the return of any of the stated principal amount at maturity. Instead, if the final underlier value is less than the trigger value, which is 80% of the initial underlier value, the payment at maturity will be an amount in cash that is less than the $10 stated principal amount of each security by a percentage equal to the percentage decrease from the initial underlier value to the final underlier value. There is no minimum payment at maturity on the securities and, accordingly, you could lose your entire initial investment in the securities.

 

§ The potential return on the securities is limited to the fixed percentage. Any positive return on your securities will not exceed the fixed percentage, regardless of any appreciation in the value of the underlier, which may be significant. If the underlier has appreciated since the pricing date by more than the fixed percentage, you will receive a lower return on the securities than you would have received if you had invested directly in the underlier.

 

§ The fixed percentage provides an enhanced return only for a limited range of positive performance of the underlier. The fixed percentage enhances returns of the underlier only when the final underlier value is greater than or equal to the initial underlier value and the underlier has not appreciated by more than the fixed percentage. Accordingly, if the underlier depreciates or if the underlier appreciates by more than the fixed percentage from the pricing date to the valuation date, the fixed percentage will not enhance the return on the securities.

 

§ The final underlier value is not based on the value of the underlier at any time other than the valuation date. The final underlier value will be based solely on the closing price of the underlier on the valuation date and the payment at maturity will be based solely on the final underlier value as compared to the initial underlier value. Therefore, if the value of the underlier has declined as of the valuation date, the payment at maturity, if any, may be significantly less than it would otherwise have been had the final underlier value been determined at a time prior to such decline or after the value of the underlier has recovered. Although the value of the underlier on the maturity date or at other times during the term of your securities may be higher than the closing price of the underlier on the valuation date, you will not benefit from the value of the underlier at any time other than on the valuation date.

 

§ Investing in the securities is not equivalent to investing in the underlier. Investors in the securities will not own the underlier or have voting rights or rights to receive dividends or other distributions or any other rights with respect to the underlier.

 

§ The U.S. federal income tax consequences of an investment in the securities are uncertain. There is no direct legal authority regarding the proper U.S. federal income tax treatment of the securities, and we do not plan to request a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”). Consequently, significant aspects of the tax treatment of the securities are uncertain, and the IRS or a court might not agree with the treatment of the securities as prepaid forward contracts, as described below under “Additional provisions—Tax considerations.” If the IRS were successful in asserting an alternative treatment for the securities, the tax consequences of the ownership and disposition of the securities could be materially and adversely affected. In addition, in 2007 the Treasury Department and the IRS released a notice requesting comments on various issues regarding the U.S. federal income tax treatment of “prepaid forward contracts” and similar instruments. Any Treasury regulations or other guidance promulgated after consideration of these issues could materially and adversely affect the tax consequences of an investment in the securities, possibly with retroactive effect. You should review carefully the sections of the accompanying prospectus supplement entitled “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences—Tax Consequences to U.S. Holders—Notes Treated as Prepaid Forward or Derivative Contracts” and, if you are a non-U.S. holder, “—Tax Consequences to Non-U.S. Holders,” and consult your tax advisor regarding the U.S. federal tax consequences of an investment in the securities (including possible alternative treatments and the issues presented by the 2007 notice), as well as tax consequences arising under the laws of any state, local or non-U.S. taxing jurisdiction.

 

Risks Relating to the Issuer

 

§ Credit of issuer. The securities are unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the issuer, Barclays Bank PLC, and are not, either directly or indirectly, an obligation of any third party. Any payment to be made on the securities, including any repayment of principal, is subject to the ability of Barclays Bank PLC to satisfy its obligations as they come due and is not guaranteed by any third party. As a result, the actual and perceived creditworthiness of Barclays Bank PLC may affect the market value of the securities and, in the event Barclays Bank PLC were to default on its obligations, you might not receive any amount owed to you under the terms of the securities.

§ You may lose some or all of your investment if any U.K. Bail-in Power is exercised by the relevant U.K. resolution authority. Notwithstanding and to the exclusion of any other term of the securities or any other agreements, arrangements or understandings between Barclays Bank PLC and any holder or beneficial owner of the securities, by acquiring the securities, each holder and beneficial owner of the securities acknowledges, accepts, agrees to be bound by, and consents to the exercise of, any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority as set forth under “Consent to U.K. Bail-in Power” in this document. Accordingly, any U.K. Bail-in Power may be exercised in such a manner as to result in you and other holders and beneficial owners of the securities losing all or a part of the value of your investment in the securities or receiving a different security from the securities, which may be worth significantly less than the securities and which may have significantly fewer protections than those typically afforded to debt securities. Moreover, the relevant U.K. resolution authority may exercise the U.K. Bail-in Power without providing any advance notice to, or requiring the consent of, the holders and beneficial owners of the securities. The exercise of any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority with respect to the securities will not be a default or an Event of Default (as each term is defined in the senior debt securities indenture) and the trustee will not be liable for any action that the trustee takes, or abstains from taking, in either case, in accordance with the exercise of the U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority with respect to the securities. See “Consent to U.K. Bail-in Power” in this document as well as “U.K. Bail-in Power,” “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to the Securities Generally—Regulatory action in the event a bank or investment firm in the Group is failing or likely to fail could materially adversely affect the value of the securities” and “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to the Securities Generally—Under the terms of the securities, you have agreed to be bound by the exercise of any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority” in the accompanying prospectus supplement.

 

Risks Relating to the Underlier

 

§ No affiliation with the issuer of the underlier. The issuer of the underlier is not an affiliate of ours, is not involved with this offering in any way, and has no obligation to consider your interests in taking any corporate actions that might affect the value of the securities. We have not made any due diligence inquiry with respect to the issuer of the underlier in connection with this offering.

 

§ Single equity risk. The price of the underlier can rise or fall sharply due to factors specific to the underlier and its issuer, such as stock price volatility, earnings, financial conditions, corporate, industry and regulatory developments, management changes and decisions and other events, as well as general market factors, such as general stock market volatility and levels, interest rates and economic and political conditions. We urge you to review financial and other information filed periodically with the SEC by the issuer of the underlier.

 

§ Anti-dilution protection is limited, and the calculation agent has discretion to make anti-dilution adjustments. The calculation agent may in its sole discretion make adjustments affecting the amounts payable on the securities upon the occurrence of certain corporate events (such as stock splits or extraordinary or special dividends) that the calculation agent determines have a diluting or concentrative effect on the theoretical value of the underlier. However, the calculation agent might not make such adjustments in response to all events that could affect the underlier. The occurrence of any such event and any adjustment made by the calculation agent (or a determination by the calculation agent not to make any adjustment) may adversely affect the market price of, and any amounts payable on, the securities. See “Reference Assets—Equity Securities—Share Adjustments Relating to Securities with an Equity Security as a Reference Asset” in the accompanying prospectus supplement.

 

§ Reorganization or other events could adversely affect the value of the securities or result in the securities being accelerated. Upon the occurrence of certain reorganization events or a nationalization, expropriation, liquidation, bankruptcy, insolvency or de-listing of the underlier, the calculation agent will make adjustments to the underlier that may result in payments on the securities being based on the performance of shares, cash or other assets distributed to holders of the underlier upon the occurrence of such event or, in some cases, the calculation agent may accelerate the maturity date for a payment determined by the calculation agent. Any of these actions could adversely affect the value of the underlier and, consequently, the value of the securities. Any amount payable upon acceleration could be significantly less than the amount(s) that would be due on the securities if they were not accelerated. See “Reference Assets—Equity Securities—Share Adjustments Relating to Securities with an Equity Security as a Reference Asset” in the accompanying prospectus supplement.

 

§ Governmental legislative or regulatory actions, such as sanctions, could adversely affect your investment in the securities. Governmental legislative or regulatory actions, including, without limitation, sanctions-related actions by the U.S. or a foreign government, could prohibit or otherwise restrict persons from holding the securities or the underlier, or engaging in transactions in them, and any such action could adversely affect the value of the underlier. These legislative or regulatory actions could result in restrictions on the securities or the de-listing of the underlier. You may lose a significant portion or all of your initial investment in the securities if the underlier is de-listed or if you are forced to divest the securities due to government mandates, especially if such de-listing occurs or such divestment must be made at a time when the value of the securities has declined. See “—Reorganization or other events could adversely affect the value of the securities or result in the securities being accelerated” above.

Risks Relating to Conflicts of Interest

 

§ We may engage in business with or involving the issuer of the underlier without regard to your interests. We or our affiliates may presently or from time to time engage in business with the issuer of the underlier without regard to your interests and thus may acquire non-public information about the issuer of the underlier. Neither we nor any of our affiliates undertakes to disclose any such information to you. In addition, we or our affiliates from time to time have published and in the future may publish research reports with respect to the issuer of the underlier, which may or may not recommend that investors buy or hold the underlier.

 

§ Hedging and trading activity by the issuer and its affiliates could potentially adversely affect the value of the securities. The hedging or trading activities of the issuer’s affiliates and of any other hedging counterparty with respect to the securities on or prior to the pricing date and prior to maturity could adversely affect the value of the underlier and, as a result, could decrease the amount an investor may receive on the securities at maturity, if any. Any of these hedging or trading activities on or prior to the pricing date could have increased the initial underlier value and, as a result, the trigger value, which is the value at or above which the underlier must close on the valuation date so that the investor does not suffer a loss on their initial investment in the securities. Additionally, such hedging or trading activities during the term of the securities, including on the valuation date, could potentially affect the value of the underlier on the valuation date and, accordingly, the amount of cash an investor will receive at maturity, if any.

 

§ We and our affiliates, and any dealer participating in the distribution of the securities, may engage in various activities or make determinations that could materially affect your securities in various ways and create conflicts of interest. We and our affiliates play a variety of roles in connection with the issuance of the securities, as described below. In performing these roles, our and our affiliates’ economic interests are potentially adverse to your interests as an investor in the securities.

 

In connection with our normal business activities and in connection with hedging our obligations under the securities, we and our affiliates make markets in and trade various financial instruments or products for our accounts and for the account of our clients and otherwise provide investment banking and other financial services with respect to these financial instruments and products. These financial instruments and products may include securities, derivative instruments or assets that may relate to the underlier. In any such market making, trading and hedging activity, investment banking and other financial services, we or our affiliates may take positions or take actions that are inconsistent with, or adverse to, the investment objectives of the holders of the securities. We and our affiliates have no obligation to take the needs of any buyer, seller or holder of the securities into account in conducting these activities. Such market making, trading and hedging activity, investment banking and other financial services may negatively impact the value of the securities.

 

In addition, the role played by Barclays Capital Inc., as the agent for the securities, could present significant conflicts of interest with the role of Barclays Bank PLC, as issuer of the securities. For example, Barclays Capital Inc. or its representatives may derive compensation or financial benefit from the distribution of the securities and such compensation or financial benefit may serve as an incentive to sell the securities instead of other investments. Furthermore, we and our affiliates establish the offering price of the securities for initial sale to the public, and the offering price is not based upon any independent verification or valuation.

 

Furthermore, if any dealer participating in the distribution of the securities or any of its affiliates conducts hedging activities for us in connection with the securities, that participating dealer or its affiliates will expect to realize a projected profit from such hedging activities, and this projected profit will be in addition to any selling concession that the participating dealer realizes for the sale of the securities to you. This additional projected profit may create a further incentive for the participating dealer to sell the securities to you.

 

In addition to the activities described above, we will also act as the calculation agent for the securities. As calculation agent, we will determine any values of the underlier and make any other determinations necessary to calculate any payments on the securities. In making these determinations, we may be required to make discretionary judgments, including determining whether a market disruption event has occurred on any date that the value of the underlier is to be determined; determining whether to adjust any variable described herein in the case of certain corporate events related to the underlier that the calculation agent determines have a diluting or concentrative effect on the theoretical value of the shares of the underlier; and determining whether to accelerate the maturity date upon the occurrence of certain reorganization events and additional adjustment events. In making these discretionary judgments, our economic interests are potentially adverse to your interests as an investor in the securities, and any of these determinations may adversely affect any payments on the securities.

 

Risks Relating to the Estimated Value of the Securities and the Secondary Market

 

§ The securities will not be listed on any securities exchange, and secondary trading may be limited. Barclays Capital Inc. and other affiliates of Barclays Bank PLC intend to offer to purchase the securities in the secondary market but are not required to do so and may cease any such market making activities at any time, without notice. Even if a secondary market develops, it may not provide enough liquidity to allow you to trade or sell the securities easily. Because other dealers are not likely to make a secondary market for the securities, the price, if any, at which you may be able to trade your securities is likely to depend on the price, if any, at which Barclays Capital Inc. and other affiliates of Barclays Bank PLC are willing to buy the securities. In addition, Barclays Capital Inc. or one or more of our other affiliates may at any time hold an unsold portion of the securities (as described on

 

July 2021 Page 13

 

 

Trigger Jump Securities Based on the Performance of the Common Stock of United States Steel Corporation due November 2, 2022

Principal at Risk Securities

 

the cover page of this document), which may inhibit the development of a secondary market for the securities. The securities are not designed to be short-term trading instruments. Accordingly, you should be willing and able to hold your securities to maturity.

 

§ The market price of the securities will be influenced by many unpredictable factors. Several factors will influence the value of the securities in the secondary market and the price at which Barclays Capital Inc. and other affiliates of Barclays Bank PLC may be willing to purchase or sell the securities in the secondary market. Although we expect that generally the value of the underlier on any day will affect the value of the securities more than any other single factor, other factors that may influence the value of the securities include:

 

o the volatility (frequency and magnitude of changes in value) of the underlier;

 

o dividend rates on the underlier;

 

o interest and yield rates in the market;

 

o time remaining until the securities mature;

 

o supply and demand for the securities;

 

o geopolitical conditions and economic, financial, political, regulatory and judicial events that affect the underlier and that may affect the final underlier value; and

 

o any actual or anticipated changes in our credit ratings or credit spreads.

 

The value of the underlier may be, and has recently been, volatile, and we can give you no assurance that the volatility will lessen. See “United States Steel Corporation Overview” below. You may receive less, and possibly significantly less, than the stated principal amount per security if you try to sell your securities prior to maturity.

 

§ The estimated value of your securities is lower than the initial issue price of your securities. The estimated value of your securities on the pricing date is lower than the initial issue price of your securities. The difference between the initial issue price of your securities and the estimated value of the securities is a result of certain factors, such as any sales commissions to be paid to Barclays Capital Inc. or another affiliate of ours, any selling concessions, discounts, commissions or fees to be allowed or paid to non-affiliated intermediaries, the estimated profit that we or any of our affiliates expect to earn in connection with structuring the securities, the estimated cost that we may incur in hedging our obligations under the securities, and estimated development and other costs that we may incur in connection with the securities.These other costs will include a fee paid to LFT Securities, LLC, an entity in which an affiliate of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management has an ownership interest, for providing certain electronic platform services with respect to this offering.

 

§ The estimated value of your securities might be lower if such estimated value were based on the levels at which our debt securities trade in the secondary market. The estimated value of your securities on the pricing date is based on a number of variables, including our internal funding rates. Our internal funding rates may vary from the levels at which our benchmark debt securities trade in the secondary market. As a result of this difference, the estimated value referenced above might be lower if such estimated value were based on the levels at which our benchmark debt securities trade in the secondary market.

 

§ The estimated value of the securities is based on our internal pricing models, which may prove to be inaccurate and may be different from the pricing models of other financial institutions. The estimated value of your securities on the pricing date is based on our internal pricing models, which take into account a number of variables and are based on a number of subjective assumptions, which may or may not materialize. These variables and assumptions are not evaluated or verified on an independent basis. Further, our pricing models may be different from other financial institutions’ pricing models and the methodologies used by us to estimate the value of the securities may not be consistent with those of other financial institutions that may be purchasers or sellers of securities in the secondary market. As a result, the secondary market price of your securities may be materially different from the estimated value of the securities determined by reference to our internal pricing models.

 

§ The estimated value of your securities is not a prediction of the prices at which you may sell your securities in the secondary market, if any, and such secondary market prices, if any, will likely be lower than the initial issue price of your securities and may be lower than the estimated value of your securities. The estimated value of the securities will not be a prediction of the prices at which Barclays Capital Inc., other affiliates of ours or third parties may be willing to purchase the securities from you in secondary market transactions (if they are willing to purchase, which they are not obligated to do). The price at which you may be able to sell your securities in the secondary market at any time will be influenced by many factors that cannot be predicted, such as market conditions, and any bid and ask spread for similar sized trades, and may be substantially less than our estimated value of the securities. Further, as secondary market prices of your securities take into account the levels at which our debt securities trade in the secondary market, and do not take into account our various costs related to the securities such as fees, commissions, discounts, and the costs of hedging our obligations under the securities, secondary market prices of your securities will likely be lower than the initial issue price of your securities. As a result, the price at which Barclays Capital Inc., other affiliates of ours or third parties may be willing to purchase the securities from you in secondary market transactions, if any, will likely be lower than the price you paid for your securities, and any sale prior to the maturity date could result in a substantial loss to you.

§ The temporary price at which we may initially buy the securities in the secondary market and the value we may initially use for customer account statements, if we provide any customer account statements at all, may not be indicative of future prices of your securities. Assuming that all relevant factors remain constant after the pricing date, the price at which Barclays Capital Inc. may initially buy or sell the securities in the secondary market (if Barclays Capital Inc. makes a market in the securities, which it is not obligated to do) and the value that we may initially use for customer account statements, if we provide any customer account statements at all, may exceed our estimated value of the securities on the pricing date, as well as the secondary market value of the securities, for a temporary period after the initial issue date of the securities. The price at which Barclays Capital Inc. may initially buy or sell the securities in the secondary market and the value that we may initially use for customer account statements may not be indicative of future prices of your securities.

Additional Information about the Securities

 

Please read this information in conjunction with the terms on the cover page of this document.

 

Additional provisions:  
Minimum ticketing size: $1,000 / 100 securities
Tax considerations:

You should review carefully the sections in the accompanying prospectus supplement entitled “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences—Tax Consequences to U.S. Holders—Notes Treated as Prepaid Forward or Derivative Contracts” and, if you are a non-U.S. holder, “—Tax Consequences to Non-U.S. Holders.” The following discussion, when read in combination with those sections, constitutes the full opinion of our special tax counsel, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, regarding the material U.S. federal income tax consequences of owning and disposing of the securities. The following discussion supersedes the discussion in the accompanying prospectus supplement to the extent it is inconsistent therewith.

 

Based on current market conditions, in the opinion of our special tax counsel, the securities should be treated for U.S. federal income tax purposes as prepaid forward contracts with respect to the underlier. Assuming this treatment is respected, upon a sale or exchange of the securities (including redemption at maturity), you should recognize capital gain or loss equal to the difference between the amount realized on the sale or exchange and your tax basis in the securities, which should equal the amount you paid to acquire the securities. This gain or loss on your securities should be treated as long-term capital gain or loss if you hold your securities for more than a year, whether or not you are an initial purchaser of securities at the original issue price.

 

However, the IRS or a court may not respect this treatment, in which case the timing and character of any income or loss on the securities could be materially and adversely affected. In addition, in 2007 the U.S. Treasury Department and the IRS released a notice requesting comments on the U.S. federal income tax treatment of “prepaid forward contracts” and similar instruments. The notice focuses in particular on whether to require investors in these instruments to accrue income over the term of their investment. It also asks for comments on a number of related topics, including the character of income or loss with respect to these instruments; the relevance of factors such as the nature of the underlying property to which the instruments are linked; the degree, if any, to which income (including any mandated accruals) realized by non-U.S. investors should be subject to withholding tax; and whether these instruments are or should be subject to the “constructive ownership” regime, which very generally can operate to recharacterize certain long-term capital gain as ordinary income and impose a notional interest charge. While the notice requests comments on appropriate transition rules and effective dates, any Treasury regulations or other guidance promulgated after consideration of these issues could materially and adversely affect the tax consequences of an investment in the securities, possibly with retroactive effect. You should consult your tax advisor regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences of an investment in the securities, including possible alternative treatments and the issues presented by this notice.

 

Treasury regulations under Section 871(m) generally impose a withholding tax on certain “dividend equivalents” under certain “equity linked instruments.” A recent IRS notice excludes from the scope of Section 871(m) instruments issued prior to January 1, 2023 that do not have a “delta of one” with respect to underlying securities that could pay U.S.-source dividends for U.S. federal income tax purposes (each an “Underlying Security”). Based on our determination that the securities do not have a “delta of one” within the meaning of the regulations, our special tax counsel is of the opinion that these regulations should not apply to the securities with regard to non-U.S. holders. Our determination is not binding on the IRS, and the IRS may disagree with this determination. Section 871(m) is complex and its application may depend on your particular circumstances, including whether you enter into other transactions with respect to an Underlying Security. You should consult your tax advisor regarding the potential application of Section 871(m) to the securities.

Prohibition of Sales to UK Retail Investors

 

The securities are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to, and should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to, any retail investor in the United Kingdom (“UK”). For these purposes, a UK retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (8) of Article 2 of Regulation (EU) No 2017/565 as it forms part of UK domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (as amended, the “EUWA”); (ii) a customer within the meaning of the provisions of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (as amended, the “FSMA”) and any rules or regulations made under the FSMA to implement Directive (EU) 2016/97, where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (8) of Article 2(1) of Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of UK domestic law by virtue of the EUWA; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in Article 2 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 as it forms part of UK domestic law by virtue of the EUWA (as amended, the “UK Prospectus Regulation”). Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 as it forms part of UK domestic law by virtue of the EUWA (as amended, the “UK PRIIPs Regulation”) for offering or selling the securities or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the United Kingdom has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the securities or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the United Kingdom may be unlawful under the UK PRIIPs Regulation.

 

Prohibition of Sales to EEA Retail Investors

 

The securities are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to, and should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to, any retail investor in the European Economic Area (“EEA”). For these purposes, an EEA retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) 2014/65/EU (as amended, “MiFID II”); (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/97, as amended, where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 (as amended, the “EU Prospectus Regulation”). Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (as amended, the “EU PRIIPs Regulation”) for offering or selling the securities or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the European Economic Area has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the securities or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the European Economic Area may be unlawful under the EU PRIIPs Regulation.
