It does not purport to be comprehensive and does not constitute legal or tax\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql advice. Investors (particularly those subject to special tax rules, such as banks, dealers, insurance companies and tax-exempt\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql entities) should consult with their own tax advisers regarding the tax consequences of an investment in the notes.\par\pard\plain\sb396\cf1\f51\fs20\b\ql Interests on the Notes\par\pard\plain\sb132\fi462\cf1\f51\fs20\ql As we, the issuer of the notes, are not an ROC statutory tax withholder, there is no ROC withholding tax on the interests or\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql deemed interests to be paid on the notes. ROC corporate holders must include the interests or deemed interests receivable under\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql the notes as part of their taxable income and pay income tax at a flat rate of 17\~percent (unless the total taxable income for a\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql fiscal year is under $120,000 New Taiwan Dollars), as they are subject to income tax on their worldwide income on an accrual\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql basis. The alternative minimum tax (\u8220?AMT\u8221?) is not applicable. On 18\~January 2018, an amendment to the Income\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql Tax Act of the ROC has been passed by the Legislative Yuan to increase the corporate income tax rate from 17\~percent to\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql 20\~percent. Once such amendment is announced by the President of the ROC, it will take retroactive effect from 1\~January 2018.\par\pard\plain\sb396\cf1\f51\fs20\b\ql Sale of the Notes\par\pard\plain\sb132\fi462\cf1\f51\fs20\ql In general, the sale of corporate bonds or financial bonds is subject to 0.1\~percent securities transaction tax\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql (\u8220?STT\u8221?) on the transaction price. However, Article 2-1 of the Securities Transaction Tax Act prescribes that STT\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql will cease to be levied on the sale of corporate bonds and financial bonds from 1\~January 2010 to 31\~December 2026. Therefore,\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql the sale of the notes will be exempt from STT if the sale is conducted on or before 31\~December 2026. Starting from 1\~January\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql 2027, any sale of the notes will be subject to STT at 0.1\~percent of the transaction price, unless otherwise provided by the tax\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql laws that may be in force at that time.\par\pard\plain\sb264\fi462\cf1\f51\fs20\ql Capital gains generated from the sale of bonds are exempt from income tax. Accordingly, ROC corporate holders are not\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql subject to income tax on any capital gains generated from the sale of the notes. However, ROC corporate holders should include\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql the capital gains in calculating their basic income for the purpose of calculating their AMT. If the amount of the AMT exceeds\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql the ordinary income tax calculated pursuant to the Income Basic Tax Act (also known as the AMT Act), the excess becomes the\plain\cf1\f51\fs20\ql ROC corporate holders\u8217?
