What Is the Total Return on the Notes at Maturity, Assuming a Range of Performances for the Reference Stock?

The following table illustrates the hypothetical total return at maturity on the notes. The “total return” as used in this pricing supplement is the number, expressed as a percentage, that results from comparing the payment at maturity per $1,000 principal amount note to $1,000. Each hypothetical total return or hypothetical payment at maturity set forth below assumes an Initial Stock Price of $500.00, reflects the Contingent Minimum Return of 5.00%, the Maximum Return of 62.00% and the Knock-Out Buffer Amount of 20.00%. Each hypothetical total return or hypothetical payment at maturity set forth below is for illustrative purposes only and may not be the actual total return or payment applicable to a purchaser of the notes. The numbers appearing in the following table and examples have been rounded for ease of analysis.

    Total Return

$50.00 -90.00% N/A -90.00%  
$0.00 -100.00% N/A -100.00%  

(1) The closing price of one share of the Reference Stock is greater than or equal to $400.00 (80.00% of the hypothetical Initial Stock Price) on each day during the Monitoring Period.

(2) The closing price of one share of the Reference Stock is less than $400.00 (80.00% of the hypothetical Initial Stock Price) on at least one day during the Monitoring Period.

Hypothetical Examples of Amounts Payable at Maturity

The following examples illustrate how a payment at maturity set forth in the table above is calculated.

Example 1: The closing price of one share of the Reference Stock decreases from the Initial Stock Price of $500.00 to a Final Stock Price of $495.00 — a Knock-Out Event has not occurred. Because the Stock Return of -1.00% is less than the Contingent Minimum Return of 5.00%, the investor receives a payment at maturity of $1,050.00 per $1,000 principal amount note.

Example 2: The closing price of one share of the Reference Stock decreases from the Initial Stock Price of $500.00 to a Final Stock Price of $475.00— a Knock-Out Event has not occurred. Because the Stock Return of -5% is less than the Contingent Minimum Return of 5.00%, the investor receives a payment at maturity of $1,050.00 per $1,000 principal amount note.

Example 3: The closing price of one share of the Reference Stock increases from the Initial Stock Price of $500.00 to a Final Stock Price of $550.00— a Knock-Out Event has not occurred. Because the Stock Return of 10% is greater than the Contingent Minimum Return of 5.00% but less than the Maximum Return of 62.00%, the investor receives a payment at maturity of $1,100 per $1,000 principal amount note, calculated as follows:

$1,000 + ($1,000 × 10%) = $1,100

Example 4: The closing price of one share of the Reference Stock decreases from the Initial Stock Price of $500.00 to a Final Stock Price of $450.00 — a Knock-Out Event has occurred. Because the Final Stock Price of $450.00 is less than the Initial Stock Price of $500.00 by more than the Knock-Out Buffer Amount of 20.00%, a Knock-Out Event has occurred and because the Stock Return is -10%, the investor receives a payment at maturity of $900 per $1,000 principal amount note, calculated as follows:

$1,000 + ($1,000 × -10%) = $900

Example 5: The closing price of one share of the Reference Stock increases from the Initial Stock Price of $500.00 to a Final Stock Price of $825.00. Because the Stock Return of 65% is greater than the Maximum Return of 62.00%, regardless of whether a Knock-Out Event has occurred, the investor receives a payment at maturity of $1,620 per $1,000 principal amount note, the maximum payment on the notes.

The hypothetical returns and hypothetical payments on the notes shown above do not reflect fees or expenses that would be associated with any sale in the secondary market. If these fees and expenses were included, the hypothetical returns and hypothetical payments shown above would likely be lower.

Selected Purchase Considerations

·CAPPED APPRECIATION POTENTIAL — If a Knock-Out Event has occurred, the notes provide the opportunity to participate in the appreciation of the Reference Stock, up to the Maximum Return of 62.00% at maturity. If a Knock-Out Event has not occurred, in addition to the principal amount, you will receive at maturity at least the Contingent Minimum Return of 5.00%, for a minimum payment at maturity of $1,000 for every $1,000 principal amount note, subject to the Maximum Return of 62.00%. The maximum payment at maturity is $1,620 per $1,050 principal amount note. Because the notes are our unsecured and unsubordinated obligations, payment of any amount on the notes is subject to our ability to pay our obligations as they become due.
·RETURN LINKED TO A SINGLE REFERENCE STOCK — The return on the notes is linked to the performance of a single Reference Stock, which is the common stock of Apple. For additional information see “The Reference Stock” in this pricing supplement.
·CAPITAL GAINS TAX TREATMENT — You should review carefully the section entitled “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences” in the accompanying product supplement no. 4-I. The following discussion, when read in combination with that section, 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 notes.

Based on current market conditions, in the opinion of our special tax counsel it is reasonable to treat the notes as “open transactions” that are not debt instruments for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Assuming this treatment is respected, the gain or loss on your notes should be treated as long-term capital gain or loss if you hold your notes for more than a year, whether or not you are an initial purchaser of notes at the issue price. However, the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) or a court may not respect this treatment of the notes, in which case the timing and character of any income or loss on the notes could be materially and adversely affected. In addition, in 2007 Treasury 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 an 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 notes, possibly with retroactive effect. You should consult your tax adviser regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences of an investment in the notes, including possible alternative treatments and the issues presented by this notice.

Non-U.S. Holders - Additional Tax Consideration

Non-U.S. Holders should note that recently proposed Treasury regulations, if finalized in their current form, could impose a withholding tax at a rate of 30% (subject to reduction under an applicable income tax treaty) on amounts attributable to U.S.-source dividends (including, potentially, adjustments to account for extraordinary dividends) that are paid or “deemed paid” after December 31, 2013 under certain financial instruments, if certain other conditions are met.  While significant aspects of the application of these proposed regulations to the notes are uncertain, if these proposed regulations were finalized in their current form, we (or other withholding agents) might determine that withholding is required with respect to notes held by a Non-U.S. Holder or that the Non-U.S. Holder must provide information to establish that withholding is not required. Non-U.S. Holders should consult their tax advisers regarding the potential application of these proposed regulations. If withholding is required, we will not be required to pay any additional amounts with respect to amounts so withheld.

Selected Risk Considerations

An investment in the notes involves significant risks. Investing in the notes is not equivalent to investing directly in the Reference Stock. These risks are explained in more detail in the “Risk Factors” section of the accompanying product supplement no. 4-I dated November 14, 2011.

·YOUR INVESTMENT IN THE NOTES MAY RESULT IN A LOSS — The notes do not guarantee any return of principal. The return on the notes at maturity is linked to the performance of the Reference Stock and will depend on whether a Knock-Out Event has occurred and whether, and the extent to which, the Stock Return is positive or negative. If the closing price of one share of the Reference Stock is less than the Initial Stock Price by more than the Knock-Out Buffer Amount of 20.00% on any day during the Monitoring Period, a Knock-Out Event has occurred, and the benefit provided by the Knock-Out Buffer Amount of 20.00% will terminate. If a Knock-Out Event has occurred, for every 1% that the Final Stock Price is less than the Initial Stock Price, you will lose an amount equal to 1% of the principal amount of your notes. Under these circumstances, you could lose some or all of your initial investment at maturity.
·YOUR MAXIMUM GAIN ON THE NOTES IS LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM RETURN — If the Final Stock Price is greater than the Initial Stock Price, for each $1,000 principal amount note, you will receive at maturity $1,000 plus an additional return that will not exceed the Maximum Return of 62.00%, regardless of any appreciation in the Reference Stock, which may be significant.
·CREDIT RISK OF JPMORGAN CHASE & CO. — The notes are subject to the credit risk of JPMorgan Chase & Co., and our credit ratings and credit spreads may adversely affect the market value of the notes.  Investors are dependent on JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s ability to pay all amounts due on the notes, and therefore investors are subject to our credit risk and to changes in the market’s view of our creditworthiness.  Any decline in our credit ratings or increase in the credit spreads charged by the market for taking our credit risk is likely to adversely affect the value of the notes.  If we were to default on our payment obligations, you may not receive any amounts owed to you under the notes and you could lose your entire investment.

Recent events affecting us have led to heightened regulatory scrutiny, may lead to additional regulatory or legal proceedings against us and may adversely affect our credit ratings and credit spreads and, as a result, the market value of the notes. See “Executive Overview — CIO Synthetic Credit Portfolio Update,” “Liquidity Risk Management — Credit Ratings” and “Item 4. Controls and Procedures” in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 and “Part II. Other Information — Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

·POTENTIAL CONFLICTS — We and our affiliates play a variety of roles in connection with the issuance of the notes, including acting as calculation agent and hedging our obligations under the notes. In performing these duties, our economic interests and the economic interests of the calculation agent and other affiliates of ours are potentially adverse to your interests as an investor in the notes. In addition, our business activities, including hedging and trading activities, could cause our economic interests to be adverse to yours and could adversely affect any payment on the notes and the value of the notes. It is possible that hedging or trading activities of ours or our affiliates could result in substantial returns for us or our affiliates while the value of the notes declines. Please refer to “Risk Factors — Risks Relating to the Notes Generally” in the accompanying product supplement no. 20-I for additional information about these risks.

We and/or our affiliates may also currently or from time to time engage in business with Apple, including extending loans to, or making equity investments in, Apple or providing advisory services to Apple. In addition, one or more of our affiliates may publish research reports or otherwise express opinions with respect to Apple, and these reports may or may not recommend that investors buy or hold the Reference Stock. As a prospective purchaser of the notes, you should undertake an independent investigation of the Reference Stock issuer that in your judgment is appropriate to make an informed decision with respect to an investment in the notes.

·THE BENEFIT PROVIDED BY THE KNOCK-OUT BUFFER AMOUNT MAY TERMINATE ON ANY DAY DURING THE MONITORING PERIOD — If the closing price of one share of the Reference Stock on any day during the Monitoring Period is less than the Initial Stock Price by more than the Knock-Out Buffer Amount of 20.00%, the benefit provided by the Knock-Out Buffer Amount will terminate and you will be fully exposed to any depreciation in the Reference Stock. We refer to this feature as a contingent buffer. Under these circumstances, if the Final Stock Price is less than the Initial Stock Price, you will lose 1% of the principal amount of your notes for every 1% that the Final Stock Price is less than the Initial Stock Price. You will be subject to this potential loss of principal even if the Reference Stock subsequently increases such that the closing price of one share of the Reference Stock is less than the Initial Stock Price by not more than the Knock-Out Buffer Amount of 20.00%, or is equal to or greater than the Initial Stock Price. If these notes had a non-contingent buffer feature, under the same scenario, you would have received the full principal amount of your notes plus the Contingent Minimum Return at maturity. As a result, your investment in the notes may not perform as well as an investment in a security with a return that includes a non-contingent buffer.
·YOUR ABILITY TO RECEIVE THE CONTINGENT MINIMUM RETURN OF 5.00% MAY TERMINATE ON ANY DAY DURING THE MONITORING PERIOD — If the closing price of one share of the Reference Stock is less than the Initial Stock Price by more than the Knock-Out Buffer Amount of 20.00% on any day during the Monitoring Period, you will not be entitled to receive the Contingent Minimum Return of 5.00% on the notes. Under these circumstances, you may lose some or all of your initial investment at maturity and will be fully exposed to any depreciation in the Reference Stock.
·CERTAIN BUILT-IN COSTS ARE LIKELY TO AFFECT ADVERSELY THE VALUE OF THE NOTES PRIOR TO MATURITY — While any payment on the notes described in this pricing supplement is based on the full principal amount of your notes, the original issue price of the notes includes the agent’s commission and the estimated cost of hedging our obligations under the notes. As a result, and as a general matter, the price, if any, at which JPMS will be willing to purchase notes from you in secondary market transactions, if at all, will likely be lower than the original issue price and any sale prior to the maturity date could result in a substantial loss to you. This secondary market price will also be affected by a number of factors aside from the agent’s commission and hedging costs, including those referred to under “Many Economic and Market Factors Will Impact the Value of the Notes” below.

The notes are not designed to be short-term trading instruments. Accordingly, you should be able and willing to hold your notes to maturity.

JPMorgan Structured Investments —

·NO OWNERSHIP OR DIVIDEND RIGHTS IN THE REFERENCE STOCK — As a holder of the notes, you will not have any ownership interest or rights in the Reference Stock, such as voting rights or dividend payments. In addition, the issuer of the Reference Stock will not have any obligation to consider your interests as a holder of the notes in taking any corporate action that might affect the value of the Reference Stock and the notes.
·NO AFFILIATION WITH THE REFERENCE STOCK ISSUER — We are not affiliated with the issuer of the Reference Stock. We have not independently verified any of the information about the Reference Stock issuer contained in this pricing supplement. You should undertake your own investigation into the Reference Stock and its issuer. We are not responsible for the Reference Stock issuer’s public disclosure of information, whether contained in SEC filings or otherwise.
·SINGLE STOCK RISK — The price of the Reference Stock can fall sharply due to factors specific to the Reference Stock 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.
·NO INTEREST, DIVIDEND PAYMENTS OR VOTING RIGHTS — As a holder of the notes, you will not receive interest payments, and you will not have voting rights or rights to receive cash dividends or other distributions or other rights that holders of the Reference Stock would have.
·RISK OF A KNOCK-OUT EVENT OCCURRING IS GREATER IF THE CLOSING PRICE OF THE REFERENCE STOCK IS VOLATILE — The likelihood that the closing price of the Reference Stock will be less than the Initial Stock Price by more than the Knock-Out Buffer Amount of 20.00% on any day during the Monitoring Period, thereby triggering a Knock-Out Event, will depend in large part on the volatility of the closing price of the Reference Stock — the frequency and magnitude of changes in the closing price of the Reference Stock.
·LACK OF LIQUIDITY — The notes will not be listed on any securities exchange. JPMS intends to offer to purchase the notes in the secondary market but is not required to do so. Even if there is a secondary market, it may not provide enough liquidity to allow you to trade or sell the notes easily. Because other dealers are not likely to make a secondary market for the notes, the price at which you may be able to trade your notes is likely to depend on the price, if any, at which JPMS is willing to buy the notes.
·HEDGING AND TRADING IN THE REFERENCE STOCK — While the notes are outstanding, we or any of our affiliates may carry out hedging activities related to the notes, including in the Reference Stock or instruments related to the Reference Stock. We or our affiliates may also trade in the Reference Stock or instruments related to the Reference Stock from time to time. Any of these hedging or trading activities as of the pricing date and during the term of the notes could adversely affect our payment to you at maturity. It is possible that these hedging or trading activities could result in substantial returns for us or our affiliates while the value of the notes declines.
·THE ANTI-DILUTION PROTECTION FOR THE REFERENCE STOCK IS LIMITED AND MAY BE DISCRETIONARY — The calculation agent will make adjustments to the Stock Adjustment Factor for certain corporate events affecting the Reference Stock. However, the calculation agent will not make an adjustment in response to all events that could affect the Reference Stock. If an event occurs that does not require the calculation agent to make an adjustment, the value of the notes may be materially and adversely affected. You should also be aware that the calculation agent may make adjustments in response to events that are not described in the accompanying product supplement to account for any diluting or concentrative effect, but the calculation agent is under no obligation to do so or to consider your interests as a holder of the notes in making these determinations.
·MANY ECONOMIC AND MARKET FACTORS WILL IMPACT THE VALUE OF THE NOTES — In addition to the closing price of one share of the Reference Stock on any day, the value of the notes will be impacted by a number of economic and market factors that may either offset or magnify each other, including:
·the actual and expected volatility in the closing price of the Reference Stock;
·the time to maturity of the notes;
·whether a Knock-Out Event has occurred or is expected to occur;
·the dividend rate on the Reference Stock;
·the occurrence of certain events affecting the issuer of the Reference Stock that may or may not require an adjustment to the Stock Adjustment Factor, including a merger or acquisition;
·interest and yield rates in the market generally;
·a variety of economic, financial, political, regulatory and judicial events; and
·our creditworthiness, including actual or anticipated downgrades in our credit ratings.
