The PowerShares DB 3x Long US Dollar Index Futures Exchange Traded Notes (UUPT) and PowerShares DB 3x Short US Dollar Index Futures Exchange Traded Notes (UDNT) (collectively, the "PowerShares DB US Dollar Futures ETNs," or the "ETNs") are the first exchange-traded products to provide investors with leveraged exposure (a bullish or bearish position) to a U.S. dollar futures index.
The PowerShares DB US Dollar Futures ETNs are based on the Deutsche Bank Long U.S. Dollar Index® (USDX) Futures Index – Excess Return™ (the "USDX Futures Index"), which is intended to measure the performance of a long investment in US Dollar Index Futures, as described below.
The ETNs are senior unsecured obligations issued by Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch that are linked to the month-over-month performance of an underlying index (the "Index") obtained by combining three times the returns for the 3x Long US Dollar Index Futures ETNs, or three times the inverse returns for the 3x Short US Dollar Index Futures ETNs, whether positive or negative, on the Deutsche Bank Long U.S. Dollar Index® (USDX) Futures Index – Excess Return™, with returns on the DB 3-Month T-Bill Index, less the investor fees.
The DB Long U.S. Dollar Index® (USDX) Futures Index seeks to measure the performance of a long position in the US Dollar Index Futures. The underlying assets of the US Dollar Index Futures are futures contracts traded on the ICE Futures U.S., Inc. whose underlying asset is the USDX®, which measures the performance of the U.S. dollar against a weighted basket of six major world currencies: the Euro, Japanese Yen, British Pound, Canadian Dollar, Swedish Krona and Swiss Franc (the "Index Currencies"). The price of US Dollar Index Futures are set by the market and reflect the foreign exchange futures prices for the underlying Index Currencies which in turn depend on the current exchange rates for the Index Currencies and the interest rate differential between the U.S. dollar and the underlying Index Currencies. As such, increases in the USDX Futures Index generally reflect a strengthening of the U.S. dollar compared to the Index Currencies and declines generally reflect a weakening of the U.S. dollar compared to the Index Currencies.
Investors can buy and sell the ETNs on the NYSE Arca exchange or receive a cash payment at the scheduled maturity or early redemption based on the performance of the Index less investor fees. The issuer has the right to redeem the ETNs at the repurchase value at any time. Investors may redeem the ETNs in blocks of no less than 200,000 securities and multiples of 50,000 securities thereafter, subject to the procedures described in the pricing supplement. Redemptions may include a fee of up to $0.03 per security.

1ETN performance figures are based on repurchase value. Repurchase value is the current principal amount x applicable index factor x fee factor. See the prospectus for more complete information. ETN performance is based on a combination of three times the monthly returns for the 3x Long US Dollar Index Futures ETNs, or three times the inverse monthly returns for the 3x Short US Dollar Index Futures ETNs, from the USDX Futures Index plus the monthly returns from the DB 3-Month T-Bill Index (the "TBill Index"), resetting monthly as per the formula applied to the ETNs, less the investor fee. The TBill Index is intended to approximate the returns from investing in 3-month United States Treasury bills on a rolling basis.
Index history is for illustrative purposes only and does not represent actual PowerShares DB US Dollar Futures ETN performance. The inception date of the USDX Futures Index is Nov. 22, 2006. Index history does not reflect any transaction costs or expenses. The index is unmanaged, and you cannot invest directly in the index. PAST PERFORMANCE DOES NOT GUARANTEE FUTURE RESULTS.
2The S&P 500® Index is an unmanaged index used as a measurement of change in stock market conditions based on the performance of a specified group of common stocks. The Barclays Capital U.S. Aggregate Index is an unmanaged index considered representative of the U.S. investment-grade, fixed-rate bond market. Correlation indicates the degree to which two investments have historically moved in the same direction and magnitude. Volatility is the annualized standard deviation of index returns.
Important Risk Considerations
The ETNs are senior unsecured obligations of Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, and any payment to be made on the ETNs is dependent on Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch's ability to pay. The ETNs are riskier than ordinary unsecured debt securities and have no principal protection. Risks of investing in the ETNs include limited portfolio diversification, full principal at risk, trade price fluctuations, illiquidity and leveraged losses. The investor fee will reduce the amount of your return at maturity or upon redemption of your ETNs even if the value of the relevant Index has increased. If at any time the repurchase value of the ETNs is zero, your Investment will expire worthless. As described in the pricing supplement, Deutsche Bank may redeem the ETNs for an amount in cash equal to the repurchase value.
The ETNs may be sold throughout the day on NYSE Arca through any brokerage account. There are restrictions on the minimum number of ETNs that you may redeem directly with Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, as specified in the applicable pricing supplement. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply, and there are tax consequences in the event of sale, redemption or maturity of the ETNs. Sales in the secondary market may result in losses.
The ETNs provide concentrated exposure to notional positions in U.S. Dollar Index Futures contracts. The market value of the ETNs may be influenced by many unpredictable factors, including, among other things, changes in supply and demand relationships, changes in interest rates, and monetary and other governmental actions.
The ETNs are leveraged investments. As such, they are likely to be more volatile than an unleveraged investment. There is also a greater risk of loss of principal associated with a leveraged investment than with an unleveraged investment.
An investment in the ETNs involves risks, including the loss of some or all of the principal amount. For a description of the main risks, see "Risk Factors" in the applicable pricing supplement and the accompanying prospectus supplement and prospectus.
