Kiesling, being duly authorized officers of UBS AG, hereby certifies (the “301 Certificate” or “Determination”), pursuant to the Indenture, dated as of June 12, 2015 (the “Indenture”), between UBS AG, a corporation duly organized and existing under the laws of Switzerland (the “Company”), and U.S. Bank Trust National Association, as Trustee (the “Trustee”), on behalf of the Company that:

(a) The terms set forth below of the Company’s Medium-Term Notes, Series B (the “Notes”) are hereby confirmed and approved in all respects. Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined herein are used with the same meanings as are ascribed thereto in the Indenture.

 

 1.The title of the Notes is Medium-Term Notes, Series B.

 

 2.The aggregate principal amount of the Notes which may be authenticated and delivered under the Indenture (except for Notes authenticated and delivered upon registration of transfer of, or in exchange for, or in lieu of, other Notes pursuant to Section 304, 305, 306, 906 or 1107 of the Indenture, and except for any Notes which, pursuant to Section 303, are deemed never to have been authenticated and delivered) is unlimited.

 

 3.Subject to paragraph 2 above, the aggregate principal amount of each Note to be issued and sold from time to time shall be approved on behalf of the Company by any two Authorized Officers, it being understood that each Authorized Officer is also an Authorized Person. For each Note, such principal amount shall be evidenced by a written statement of any two Authorized Officers approving the issuance of such Note (a “Written Statement”) or in any written instructions with respect to such Note or Notes (“Instructions”) furnished by or on behalf of the Company from time to time to the Trustee pursuant to the Administrative Procedure (as defined in the Amended and Restated Distribution Agreement, dated November 17, 2006, between the Company and the Agents (defined therein) (the “Distribution Agreement”)).

 

 4.Interest will be payable to the Person in whose name a Note (or any Predecessor Security) is registered at the close of business on the Regular Record Date (or in the case of Defaulted Interest, the Special Record Date) next preceding the Interest Payment Date;provided,however, that interest payable at Maturity will be payable to the person to whom principal shall be payable unless such interest is payable on an Interest Payment Date.

 

 5.Unless previously redeemed or repurchased or unless otherwise determined by any two Authorized Officers, as evidenced by the applicable Written Statement or Instructions, the principal of each Note shall be payable at such time after the date of original issuance as established on behalf of the Company by any two Authorized Officers from time to time, as evidenced by the applicable Written Statement or Instructions.


 6.The rate or rates, or the method of determining the rate or rates, at which each of the Notes shall bear interest shall be determined and established by any two Authorized Officers from time to time, as evidenced by the applicable Written Statement or Instructions.

If any Note provides that a payment that would otherwise be due on a day that is not a Business Day (as defined in such Note) shall be due on the next Business Day (as so defined) or on another day, such Note shall be deemed to state specifically that such provision applies to such Note, in lieu of Section 114 of the Indenture.

 dollars will be issuable in denominations of $10 and any multiple thereof (or, for any Note with a principal amount payable in another currency, the equivalent thereof in such other currency).

 

 13.Unless otherwise determined by any two Authorized Officers, as evidenced by the applicable Written Statement or Instructions, the defeasance provisions in Section 1302 and 1303 of the Indenture shall apply to any Note issued in the form of Annex A (a “Fixed Rate Note”), unless any amount payable thereon is payable other than in U.S. dollars or is payable in an amount not determinable at the original issue date (including if such amount is not so determinable pursuant to the potential payment of Additional Amounts as provided for in Section 1107 of the Indenture), and shall not apply to any other Notes.

Subject to the foregoing provisions and without limiting the foregoing, the terms of each Note may provide, among other things, for different Events of Default, acceleration provisions and covenants of the Company, for conversion and for amounts payable to be determined by an index or formula, and the terms of each Note need not be consistent with the terms contemplated herein. The determination of any two Authorized Officers with regard to any particular terms of a Note need not be specifically set forth in the applicable Written Statement or Instructions; rather, any Written Statement or Instructions approving the form of a Note shall be deemed to evidence such Authorized Officers’ approval of all the terms provided for or contemplated in such form.
