Callable Variable Rate Range Accrual Notes linked to the 6-Month USD LIBOR and the Russell 2000® Index due February 27, 2028


General

·Unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of JPMorgan Chase & Co. maturing February 27, 2028, subject to postponement as described below.
·The notes are designed for investors who seek quarterly interest payments that will be equal to the Interest Factor for the applicable Interest Period, multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the actual number of calendar days during which the Accrual Provision (defined below) is satisfied and the denominator of which is the actual number of calendar days in the applicable Interest Period. The Interest Factor will be determined on each Interest Reset Date for the applicable Interest Period and will be equal to (a) for the first three years, 7.00% per annum and (b) for the remaining term of the notes, the Multiplier (defined below) times the difference of the Strike Rate minus 6-Month USD LIBOR on such Interest Reset Date. In no event will the Interest Rate be greater than the Maximum Interest Rate as set forth below or less than the Minimum Interest Rate of 0.00% per annum. Any payment on the notes is subject to the credit risk of JPMorgan Chase & Co.
·The terms of the notes as set forth below, to the extent they differ or conflict with those set forth in the accompanying product supplement no. 1-I, will supersede the terms set forth in product supplement no. 1-I. In particular, whether the Accrual Provision is satisfied will depend on the Index Level on the applicable Accrual Determination Date (rather than on the Index Level on an Equity Index Determination Date as described in product supplement 1-I), as set forth below, and interest will be payable to the holders of record at the close of business on the Business Day immediately preceding the applicable Interest Payment Date or Redemption Date. Please refer to “Key Terms — Accrual Provision,” “Key Terms — Accrual Determination Date,” “Key Terms — Redemption Feature” and “Selected Purchase Considerations — Quarterly Interest Payments” in this term sheet for more information.
·Minimum denominations of $1,000 and integral multiples thereof.
·The notes are expected to price on or about February 22, 2013 and are expected to settle on or about February 27, 2013.
·At our option, we may redeem the notes, in whole but not in part, on any of the specified Redemption Dates specified below.

Key Terms

Payment at Maturity: If the notes have not been redeemed, at maturity you will receive a cash payment for each $1,000 principal amount note of $1,000 plus any accrued and unpaid interest.
Redemption Feature: At our option, we may redeem the notes, in whole but not in part, on the 27th day of February, May, August and November of each year, commencing February 27, 2016 (each, a “Redemption Date”) by providing at least 5 Business Days’ notice; provided, however, that if any Redemption Date is not a Business Day, then such Redemption Date shall be the following Business Day. If the notes are redeemed, you will receive on the applicable Redemption Date a cash payment equal to $1,000 for each $1,000 principal amount note redeemed. Any accrued and unpaid interest on notes redeemed will be paid to the person who is the holder of record of such notes at the close of business on the Business Day immediately preceding the applicable Redemption Date.
Interest:

With respect to each Interest Period, for each $1,000 principal amount note, the interest payment will be calculated as follows:

$1,000 × Interest Rate × (90/ 360)

Interest Rate:

The Calculation Agent will determine the Interest Rate per annum applicable to each Interest Period, calculated in thousandths of a percent, with five ten-thousandths of a percent rounded upwards, based on the following formula:

  Interest Factor × Variable Days
Actual Days
, where
 

“Variable Days” is the actual number of calendar days during such Interest Period on which the Accrual Provision is satisfied, and

“Actual Days” means, with respect to each Interest Payment Date, the actual number of calendar days in the Interest Period.

The Interest Rate may not equal the Interest Factor during any Interest Period. The Interest Rate will depend on the number of calendar days during any given Interest Period on which the Accrual Provision is satisfied, and may be zero.

Interest Factor: With respect to each Interest Period a percentage per annum, which is determined on a quarterly basis on the Interest Reset Date and subject to the satisfaction of the Accrual Provision, equal to:
  From (and including) To (but excluding) Interest Factor* Strike Rate
  February 27, 2013 February 27, 2016 7.00% Not Applicable
  February 27, 2016 February 27, 2018 Multiplier x (Strike Rate minus 6-Month USD LIBOR) 6.00% per annum
  February 27, 2018 February 27, 2023 Multiplier x (Strike Rate minus 6-Month USD LIBOR) 6.50% per annum
  February 27, 2023 February 27, 2028 Multiplier x (Strike Rate minus 6-Month USD LIBOR) 7.00% per annum

 

  *Subject to the Minimum Interest Rate and a Maximum Interest Rate. The 6-Month USD LIBOR is determined on the applicable Interest Reset Date for such Interest Period
Multiplier 1.20
Minimum Interest Rate: 0.00% per annum for any Interest Period.
Maximum Interest Rate: With respect to each Interest Period, the Maximum Interest Rate will be equal to:
  From (and including) To (but excluding) Maximum Interest Rate
  February 27, 2013 February 27, 2016 7.00% per annum
  February 27, 2016 February 27, 2018 7.20% per annum
  February 27, 2018 February 27, 2023 7.80% per annum
  February 27, 2023 February 27, 2028 8.40% per annum
Accrual Provision: For each Interest Period, the Accrual Provision shall be deemed to have been satisfied on each calendar day during such Interest Period on which the Index Level of the Russell 2000® Index, as determined on the Accrual Determination Date relating to such calendar day, is greater than or equal to the Minimum Index Level. If the Index Level of the Russell 2000® Index as determined on the Accrual Determination Date relating to such calendar day is less than the Minimum Index Level, then the Accrual Provision shall be deemed not to have been satisfied for such calendar day.
Accrual Determination Date: The second Trading Day prior to such calendar day. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for all calendar days in the Exclusion Period, the Accrual Determination Date will be the first Trading Day that precedes such Exclusion Period.
Exclusion Period: The period commencing on the seventh Business Day prior to but excluding each Interest Payment Date.
Other Key Terms: Please see “Additional Key Terms” in this term sheet for other key terms.

Investing in the Callable Variable Rate Range Accrual Notes involves a number of risks. See “Risk Factors” beginning on page PS-13 of the accompanying product supplement no. 1-I, “Risk Factors” beginning on page US-1 of the accompanying underlying supplement no. 1-I and “Selected Risk Considerations” beginning on page TS-4 of this term sheet.

Neither the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of the notes or passed upon the accuracy or the adequacy of this term sheet, the accompanying product supplement no. 1-I, the accompanying underlying supplement no. 1-I or the accompanying prospectus supplement and prospectus. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

  Price to Public (1)(2)(3) Fees and Commissions (1)(2) Proceeds to Us
Per note At variable prices $ $
Total At variable prices $ $

(1) The price to the public includes the estimated cost of hedging our obligations under the notes through one or more of our affiliates.

(2) If the notes priced today, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, which we refer to as JPMS, acting as agent for JPMorgan Chase & Co., would receive a commission of approximately $52.50 per $1,000 principal amount note and would use a portion of that commission to allow selling concessions to other affiliated or unaffiliated dealers of approximately $35.00 per $1,000 principal amount note.  This commission will include the projected profits that our affiliates expect to realize, some of which may be allowed to other unaffiliated dealers, for assuming risks inherent in hedging our obligations under the notes. The concessions of approximately $35.00 include concessions to be allowed to selling dealers and concessions to be allowed to any arranging dealer. The actual commission received by JPMS may be more or less than $52.50 and will depend on market conditions on the pricing date. In no event will the commission received by JPMS, which includes concessions that may be allowed to other dealers, exceed $80.00 per $1,000 principal amount note. See “Plan of Distribution (Conflicts of Interest)” beginning on page PS-42 of the accompanying product supplement no. 1-I.

(3) JPMS proposes to offer the notes from time to time for resale in one or more negotiated transactions, or otherwise, at varying prices to be determined at the time of each sale, which may be at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to such prevailing prices or at negotiated prices, provided that such prices will not be less than $965.00 per $1,000 principal amount note and not more than $1,000 per $1,000 principal amount note. See “Plan of Distribution (Conflicts of Interest)” beginning on page PS-42 of the accompanying product supplement no. 1-I.

The notes are not bank deposits and are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency, nor are they obligations of, or guaranteed by, a bank.

If on the applicable Interest Reset Date, the 6-Month USD LIBOR cannot be determined by reference to Reuters page “LIBOR01” (or any successor page), then the rate for such date shall be determined as if LIBOR Reference Banks Rate were the applicable rate.
Index Level: On any Trading Day, the official closing level of the Russell 2000® Index (the “Index”) published following the regular official weekday close of trading for the Russell 2000® Index on Bloomberg Professional Service page “RTY Index HP” on such Trading Day. If a market disruption event exists with respect to the Russell 2000® Index on any Accrual Determination Date, the Index Level on the immediately preceding Accrual Determination Date for which no market disruption event occurs or is continuing will be the Index Level for such disrupted Accrual Determination Date (and will also be the Index Level for the originally scheduled Accrual Determination Date).

Selected Purchase Considerations

·PRESERVATION OF CAPITAL AT MATURITY OR UPON REDEMPTION — Regardless of the performance of the 6-Month USD LIBOR or the Russell 2000® Index, we will pay you at least 100% of the principal amount of your notes if you hold the notes to maturity or upon redemption. Because the notes are our senior unsecured obligations, payment of any amount at maturity or upon redemption is subject to our ability to pay our obligations as they become due.
·QUARTERLY INTEREST PAYMENTS — The notes will pay at the applicable variable Interest Rate as described on the front cover of this term sheet. Interest, if any, will be paid in arrears on each Interest Payment Date, to the holder of record of such notes at the close of business on the Business Day immediately preceding the applicable Interest Payment Date. If an Interest Payment Date is not a Business Day, payment will be made on the immediately following Business Day. The interest payments during the period from and including February 27, 2013 to but excluding February 27, 2016 will be affected by the official Index Level of the Russell 2000® Index, and for all Interest Periods thereafter, interest payments will be affected by both the level of the 6-Month USD LIBOR and the official Index Level of the Russell 2000® Index as described under “Interest Rate” on the cover of this term sheet, but will not reflect the performance of such rate or such index.
·POTENTIAL QUARTERLY REDEMPTION BY US AT OUR OPTION — At our option, we may redeem the notes, in whole but not in part, on the 27th day of February, May, August and November of each year (each such date, a “Redemption Date”), commencing February 27, 2016 for a cash payment equal to $1,000 for each $1,000 principal amount note redeemed. Any accrued and unpaid interest on notes redeemed will be paid to the person who is the holder of record of such notes at the close of business on the Business Day immediately preceding the applicable Redemption Date.
·DIVERSIFICATION OF THE RUSSELL 2000® INDEX — The return on the notes is linked to the Russell 2000® Index. The Russell 2000® Index consists of 2000 component stocks selected to provide a performance benchmark for the U.S. equity markets. For additional information about the Index, see the information set forth under “The Russell 2000® Index” in the accompanying underlying supplement no. 1-I.
·TREATED AS CONTINGENT PAYMENT DEBT INSTRUMENTS — You should review carefully the section entitled “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences” in the accompanying product supplement no. 1-I. Subject to the limitations described therein, in the opinion of our special tax counsel, Sidley Austin LLP, the notes will be treated for U.S. federal income tax purposes as “contingent payment debt instruments.” You will generally be required to accrue and recognize original issue discount (“OID”) as interest income in each year at the “comparable yield,” as determined by us, even though the actual interest payments made with respect to the notes during a taxable year may differ from the amount of OID that must be accrued during that taxable year. In addition, solely for purposes of determining the amount of OID that you will be required to accrue, we are also required to construct a “projected payment schedule” in respect of the notes representing a series of payments the amount and timing of which would produce a yield to maturity on the notes equal to the comparable yield. You will be required to make adjustments to the amount of OID you must recognize each taxable year to reflect the difference, if any, between the actual amount of interest payments made and the projected amount of the interest payments (as reflected in the projected payment schedule). Under the forgoing rules, you will not be required to separately include in income the interest payments you receive with respect to the notes. To obtain the comparable yield and the projected payment schedule in respect of the notes, contact a certified financial analyst at the Global Securities Group desk at (800) 576-3529. Generally, amounts received at maturity or earlier sale or disposition in excess of your tax basis, if any, will be treated as additional interest income while any loss will be treated as an ordinary loss to the extent of all previous interest inclusions with respect to the notes, which will be deductible against other income (e.g., employment and interest income), with the balance treated as capital loss, the deductibility of which may be subject to limitations. Purchasers who are not initial purchasers of notes at the issue price should consult their tax advisers with respect to the tax consequences of an investment in the notes, including the treatment of the difference, if any, between their basis in the notes and the notes’ adjusted issue price.
Subject to certain assumptions and representations received from us, the discussion in this section entitled “Taxed as Contingent Payment Debt Instruments”, when read in combination with the section entitled “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences” in the accompanying product supplement, constitutes the full opinion of Sidley Austin LLP regarding the material U.S. federal income tax treatment of owning and disposing of the notes.

Selected Risk Considerations

An investment in the notes involves significant risks. These risks are explained in more detail in the “Risk Factors” section of the accompanying product supplement no. 1-I dated November 14, 2011 and the accompanying underlying supplement no. 1-I dated November 14, 2011.

·THE NOTES ARE NOT ORDINARY DEBT SECURITIES; THE INTEREST RATE ON THE NOTES IS NOT FIXED BUT IS VARIABLE — The rate of interest paid by us on the notes for each Interest Period is not fixed, but will vary depending on whether the Accrual Provision is satisfied, and whether such Accrual Provision is satisfied will depend on the daily fluctuations in the Index Level. Consequently, the return on the notes may be less than those otherwise payable on debt issued by us with similar maturities. The interest payments will be affected by both the level of the 6-Month USD LIBOR and the official Index Level of the Russell 2000® Index as described under “Interest Rate” on the cover of this term sheet, but will not reflect the performance of such rate or such index. Although the variable Interest Rate on the notes is determined, in part, by reference to the 6-Month USD LIBOR and the Index Level, the notes do not actually pay interest at the 6-Month USD LIBOR nor do they track the Index Level. You should consider, among other things, the overall annual percentage rate of interest to maturity as compared to other equivalent investment alternatives.
·THE INTEREST RATE ON THE NOTES IS VARIABLE, WILL NOT EXCEED THE MAXIMUM INTEREST RATE, AND MAY BE EQUAL TO 0.00% — The rate of interest you will receive is not fixed, but will vary based on both the level of the 6-Month USD LIBOR on each Interest Reset Date (after the first year of the notes) and the
JPMorgan Structured Investments —
TS-3
Callable Variable Rate Range Accrual Notes linked to the 6-Month USD LIBOR and the Russell 2000® Index
 
  

Index Level of the Russell 2000® Index on each Accrual Determination Date during an Interest Period. The Interest Rate on the notes, which will be payable on each Interest Payment Date, will be determined based on the applicable Interest Factor and the Index Level of the Russell 2000® Index as described on the cover of this term sheet, subject to the applicable Maximum Interest Rate per annum and the Minimum Interest Rate per annum. The Interest Factor will be determined in accordance with the section entitled “Interest Factor” on the cover of this term sheet, subject to the Interest Factor being greater than or equal to the Minimum Interest Rate and less than or equal to the Maximum Interest Rate as described on the cover of this term sheet. If the applicable Interest Factor as described on the cover of this term sheet is equal to zero, the Interest Rate for such Interest Period will be equal to the Minimum Interest Rate of 0.00% per annum. Additionally, if the Index Level of the Russell 2000® Index is less than the Minimum Index Level for an entire Interest Period, the Interest Rate for such Interest Period will be equal to 0.00% per annum. You will not be compensated for any loss in value due to inflation and other factors relating to the value of money over time during such period.

·AFTER THE FIRST YEAR OF THE NOTES, THE INTEREST FACTOR APPLICABLE TO AN INTEREST PERIOD WILL DECREASE AS THE VALUE OF 6-MONTH USD LIBOR INCREASES, EXCEPT WHEN LOWER THAN THE MINIMUM INTEREST RATE OR GREATER THAN THE MAXIMUM INTEREST RATE — After the first year of the notes, the Interest Factor is inversely linked to the 6-Month USD LIBOR. In other words, as the applicable the 6-Month USD LIBOR increases, the Interest Factor, and therefore the corresponding Interest Rate, will decrease. If the applicable Interest Factor as described on the cover of this term sheet is equal to zero, the Interest Factor will be equal to the Minimum Interest Rate of 0.00%, and if the 6-Month USD LIBOR is less than or equal to zero, the Interest Factor will be equal to the applicable Maximum Interest Rate per annum as described on the cover of this term sheet. Additionally, the Interest Rate payable on the notes will vary also based on whether the Accrual Provision is satisfied on any Accrual Determination Date. In other words, if the Interest Factor is a certain percentage, the Interest Rate payable on the notes may be less than that percentage.
·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 for our own accounts or on behalf of customers, could cause our economic interests to be adverse to yours and could adversely affect any payments 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 for additional information about these risks.
·HEDGING AND TRADING IN THE UNDERLYINGS — While the notes are outstanding, we or any of our affiliates may carry out hedging activities related to the notes, including trading instruments related to the 6-Month USD LIBOR, the Index and the equity securities included in the Index. We or our affiliates may also trade in the equity securities included in the Index from time to time. Any of these hedging or trading activities as of the Pricing Date and during the term of the notes could affect adversely the likelihood of a redemption or our payment to you at maturity.
·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.
·CERTAIN BUILT-IN COSTS ARE LIKELY TO AFFECT ADVERSELY THE VALUE OF THE NOTES PRIOR TO MATURITY — While the payment at maturity described in this term sheet 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 set forth 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.

·THE REDEMPTION FEATURE MAY FORCE A POTENTIAL EARLY EXIT — If we redeem the notes, the amount of interest payable on the notes will be less than the full amount of interest that would have been payable if the notes were held to maturity, and, for each $1,000 principal amount note, you will receive $1,000 plus accrued and unpaid interest to but excluding the applicable Redemption Date.
·REINVESTMENT RISK — If we redeem the notes, the term of the notes may be reduced to as short as one year and you will not receive interest payments after the applicable Redemption Date. There is no guarantee that you would be able to reinvest the proceeds from an investment in the notes at a comparable return and/or with a comparable interest rate for a similar level of risk in the event the notes are redeemed prior to the Maturity Date.

·THE METHOD OF DETERMINING WHETHER THE ACCRUAL PROVISION HAS BEEN SATISFIED FOR ANY Interest Period MAY NOT DIRECTLY CORRELATE TO THE ACTUAL LEVEL OF the Russell 2000® Index — The determination of the Interest Rate per annum payable for any Interest Period will be based on the actual number of days in that Interest Period on which the Accrual Provision is satisfied, as determined on each Accrual Determination Date. However, in each Interest Period we will use one Closing Level of the Russell 2000® Index to determine whether the Accrual Provision is satisfied on each calendar day during the period commencing on the seventh Business Day prior to but excluding the applicable Interest Payment Date, which period we refer to as the Exclusion Period. That Closing Level will be the Closing Level of the Russell 2000® Index on the first Trading Day immediately preceding the Exclusion Period, regardless of what the actual closing level of the Russell 2000® Index is for the calendar days in that period or whether the Accrual Provision could have otherwise been satisfied if actually tested in the Exclusion Period. As a result, the determination as to whether the Accrual Provision has been satisfied for any Interest Period may not directly correlate to the actual Closing Levels of the Russell 2000® Index, which will in turn affect the Interest Rate calculation.
·The 6-Month USD LIBOR AND the INDEX MAY BE AFFECTED BY A NUMBER OF FACTORS, WHICH MAY RESULT IN AN INTEREST RATE OF ZERO — The amount of interest, if any, payable on the notes will depend on a number of factors that can affect the levels of the 6-Month USD LIBOR and the Index Level including, but not limited to:
·changes in, or perceptions about, future 6-Month USD LIBOR and Index Levels;
·general economic conditions;
·prevailing interest rates;
·the dividend rates on the equity securities underlying the Russell 2000® Index; and
·policy of the Federal Reserve Board regarding interest rates.
·sentiment regarding underlying strength in the U.S. and global economies;
·expectation regarding the level of price inflation; and
·performance of capital markets.

These and other factors may have a negative impact on the payment of interest on the notes. In addition, these and other factors may have a negative impact on the value of your notes in the secondary market.

·the method of determining the interest rate for any Interest Period may not directly correlate with actual levels of the applicable 6-Month USD LIBOR OR THE INDEX LEVEL — The determination of the Interest Rate payable for any Interest Period will be based, in part, on the 6-Month USD LIBOR and the Index Level, but it will not directly correlate with actual levels of the underlying 6-Month USD LIBOR or the Index Level. We will use the Index Level on each Accrual Determination Date to determine whether the Accrual Provision is satisfied for any calendar day in the applicable Interest Period.
·NO DIVIDEND PAYMENTS OR VOTING RIGHTS — As a holder of the notes, you will not have voting rights or rights to receive cash dividends or other distributions or other rights that holders of the securities included in the Russell 2000® Index would have.
·MANY ECONOMIC AND MARKET FACTORS WILL IMPACT THE VALUE OF THE NOTES — In addition to the levels of the 6-Month USD LIBOR and the Index Level on any day of an Interest Period, the value of the notes will be affected by a number of economic and market factors that may either offset or magnify each other, including:
·the expected volatility of the 6-Month USD LIBOR and the Russell 2000® Index;
·the time to maturity of the notes;
·the redemption feature and whether we are expected to redeem the notes, which are likely to limit the value of the notes;
·the dividend rates on the equity securities underlying the Index;
·the expected positive or negative correlation between the 6-Month USD LIBOR and the Russell 2000® Index, or the expected absence of any such correlation;
·interest and yield rates in the market generally, as well as the volatility of those rates;
·the likelihood, or expectation, that the notes will be redeemed by us, based on prevailing market interest rates or otherwise;
·a variety of economic, financial, political, regulatory and judicial events; and
·our creditworthiness, including actual or anticipated downgrades in our credit ratings.
·Variable price reoffering risks — JPMS proposes to offer the notes from time to time for sale at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to then-prevailing prices or at negotiated prices, provided that such prices will not be less than $965.00 per $1,000 principal amount note or more than $1,000 per $1,000 principal amount note. Accordingly, there is a risk that the price you pay for the notes will be higher than the prices paid by other investors based on the date and time you make your purchase, from whom you purchase the notes (e.g., directly from JPMS or through a broker or dealer), any related transaction cost (e.g., any brokerage commission), whether you hold your notes in a brokerage account, a fiduciary or fee-based account or another type of account and other market factors beyond our control.
·TAX DISCLOSURE – The information under “Treated As Contingent Payment Debt Instruments" in this term sheet remains subject to confirmation by our tax counsel. We will notify you of any revisions to the information under “Treated As Contingent Payment Debt Instruments" in a supplement to this term sheet on or before the business day immediately preceding the issue date, or if the information cannot be confirmed by our tax counsel, we may terminate this offering of notes.

Hypothetical Examples of Calculation of the Interest Rate on the Notes for an Interest Period

The following examples illustrate how to calculate the Interest Rate on the notes for four hypothetical Interest Periods, assuming a Multiplier of 1.20 for each Interest Period after the first Interest Period and a Maximum Interest Rate of 7.20%, 7.80% and 8.40% for the Interest Periods beginning February 27, 2016, February 27, 2018 and February 27, 2023, respectively. The hypothetical Interest Rates in the following examples are for illustrative purposes only and may not correspond to the actual Interest Rates for any Interest Period applicable

to a purchaser of the notes. The numbers appearing in the following examples have been rounded for ease of analysis.

Example 1: For the Interest Period from and including February 27, 2013 to but excluding May 27, 2013, the 6-Month USD LIBOR is 1.70%, the number of Variable Days in the Interest Period is 83 and the number of Actual Days in the Interest Period is 90.

The Interest Factor during the Interest Period is at a fixed rate of 7.00% per annum, therefore the Interest Rate for the Interest Period is equal to 6.46% calculated as follows:

7.00% × (83/90) = 6.46%

Example 2: For the Interest Period from and including February 27, 2016 to but excluding May 27, 2014, the 6-Month USD LIBOR is -1.00%, the number of Variable Days in the Interest Period is 90 and the number of Actual Days in the Interest Period is 90.

Because the 6-Month USD LIBOR is -1.00% and the Maximum Interest Rate for the Interest Period is 7.20%, the Interest Factor is 7.20% calculated as follows:

MAX (0, Min {7.20%, 1.20 × [6.00% - (-1.00%)]}) = 7.20%

The Interest Rate for the Interest Period is equal to the Maximum Interest Rate of 7.20% per annum, calculated as follows:

7.20% × (90/90) = 7.20%

Example 3: For the Interest Period from and including February 27, 2018 to but excluding May 27, 2018, the 6-Month USD LIBOR is 6.50%, the number of Variable Days in the Interest Period is 90 and the number of Actual Days in the Interest Period is 90.

Because the 6-Month USD LIBOR is 6.50%, the applicable Interest Factor is 0.00% calculated as follows:

MAX (0, Min {7.80%, 1.20 × [6.50% - 6.50%]}) = 0.00%

The Interest Rate for the Interest Period is equal to the Minimum Interest Rate of 0.00% per annum, calculated as follows:

0.00% × (90/90) = 0.00%

Example 4: For an Interest Period, the Accrual Provision is not met on any calendar day during the Interest Period, and therefore, the number of Variable Days is 0. Regardless of the Interest Factor, because the Accrual Provision is not satisfied on any calendar day, the Interest Rate for the Interest Period will be equal to 0.00% per annum.
