JPMorgan Chase Financial Company LLC Barrier Absolute Return Market Linked Notes (with daily barrier observation)

Linked to the S&P 500® Index due on or about December 12, 2024

Fully and Unconditionally Guaranteed by JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Investment Description

Barrier Absolute Return Market Linked Notes, which we refer to as the “Notes,” are unsecured and unsubordinated debt securities issued by JPMorgan Chase Financial Company LLC (“JPMorgan Financial”), the payment on which is fully and unconditionally guaranteed by JPMorgan Chase & Co., with a return linked to the performance of the S&P 500® Index (the “Underlying”). If a Barrier Event has occurred, meaning that the closing level of the Underlying is greater than the Upper Barrier or less than the Lower Barrier on any day during the period from but excluding the Trade Date to and including the Final Valuation Date (the “Observation Period”), JPMorgan Financial will repay your principal amount at maturity plus pay an amount reflecting the Minimum Return of between 6.25% and 6.70% of the principal amount. The Upper Barrier is equal to the Initial Value plus 25.00% of the Initial Value and the Lower Barrier is equal to the Initial Value minus 25.00% of the Initial Value. If a Barrier Event has not occurred, JPMorgan Financial will repay your principal amount plus an amount reflecting the greater of the Minimum Return and the absolute value of the Underlying Return.

Investing in the Notes involves significant risks. You will not receive dividends or other distributions paid on any stocks included in the Underlying, and the Notes will not pay interest. Because the Upper Barrier is equal to the Initial Value plus 25.00% of the Initial Value and the Lower Barrier is equal to the Initial Value minus 25.00% of the Initial Value, the maximum payment at maturity is $1,250 per $1,000 principal amount note. The repayment of principal applies only if you hold the Notes to maturity. Any payment on the Notes, including any repayment of principal, is subject to the creditworthiness of JPMorgan Financial, as issuer of the Notes, and the creditworthiness of JPMorgan Chase & Co., as guarantor of the Notes. If JPMorgan Financial and JPMorgan Chase & Co. were to default on their payment obligations, you may not receive any amounts owed to you under the Notes and you could lose your entire investment.

What Are the Tax Consequences of the Notes?

TAXED AS CONTINGENT PAYMENT DEBT INSTRUMENTS

There is uncertainty regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences of an investment in the Notes due to the lack of governing authority. You should review carefully the section entitled “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences,” and in particular the subsection thereof entitled “Tax Consequences to U.S. Holders — Notes with a Term of More than One Year — Notes Treated as Contingent Payment Debt Instruments” in the accompanying product supplement no. 3-II.  Based on current market conditions, we intend to treat the Notes for U.S. federal income tax purposes as “contingent payment debt instruments.”  Assuming this treatment is respected, as discussed in that subsection, unlike a traditional debt instrument that provides for periodic payments of interest at a single fixed rate, with respect to which a cash-method investor generally recognizes income only upon receipt of stated interest, you generally will be required to accrue original issue discount (“OID”) on your Notes in each taxable year at the “comparable yield,” as determined by us, although we will not make any payment with respect to the Notes until maturity.  Subject to the occurrence of a Barrier Event, upon sale or exchange (including at maturity), you will recognize taxable income or loss equal to the difference between the amount received from the sale or exchange and your adjusted basis in the Note, which generally will equal the cost thereof, increased by the amount of OID you have accrued in respect of the Note.  You generally must treat any income as interest income and any loss as ordinary loss to the extent of previous interest inclusions, and the balance as capital loss.  The deductibility of capital losses is subject to limitations. Special rules will apply if the amount payable at maturity becomes fixed more than six months prior to maturity, including upon the occurrence of a Barrier Event. In that case, you will be required to make adjustments to account for the difference between the amount treated as fixed and the projected payment in a reasonable manner over the remaining term of the Notes. For purposes of the preceding sentence, the amount payable at maturity will be treated as fixed if (and when) all remaining contingencies with respect to it are remote or incidental within the meaning of the applicable Treasury regulations. Your tax basis in the Notes and the character of any gain or loss on the sale of the Notes will also be affected. You should consult your tax adviser concerning the application of these special rules. The discussions herein and in the accompanying product supplement do not address the consequences to taxpayers subject to special tax accounting rules under Section 451(b) of the Code.  Purchasers who are not initial purchasers of Notes at their issue price should consult their tax advisers with respect to the tax consequences of an investment in Notes, including the treatment of the difference, if any, between the basis in their Notes and the Notes’ adjusted issue price.

Our treatment of the notes will be binding on you, unless you properly disclose to the IRS an alternative treatment.  Also, the IRS may challenge the treatment of the Notes as CPDIs.  If the IRS successfully challenges the treatment of the Notes as CPDIs, then the Notes could be treated as original issue discount debt instruments (that are not CPDIs) with an amount of original issue discount equal to the maximum return at maturity.  Under this treatment, if you are a U.S. Holder, your annual taxable income from (and adjusted tax basis in) the Notes would be greater than if it were based on the comparable yield, and any loss recognized upon a disposition of the Notes (including upon maturity) would be capital loss, the deductibility of which is subject to limitations.  Accordingly, this alternative treatment could result in adverse tax consequences to you.

Section 871(m) of the Code and Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder (“Section 871(m)”) generally impose a 30% withholding tax (unless an income tax treaty applies) on dividend equivalents paid or deemed paid to Non-U.S. Holders with respect to certain financial instruments linked to U.S. equities or indices that include U.S. equities.  Section 871(m) provides certain exceptions to this withholding regime, including for instruments linked to certain broad-based indices that meet requirements set forth in the applicable Treasury regulations.  Additionally, a recent IRS notice excludes from the scope of Section 871(m) instruments issued prior to January 1, 2025 that do not have a delta of one with respect to underlying securities that could pay U.S.-source dividends for U.S. federal income tax purposes (each an “Underlying Security”).  Based on certain determinations made by us, we expect that Section 871(m) will not apply to the Notes with regard to Non-U.S. Holders.  Our determination is not binding on the IRS, and the IRS may disagree with this determination.  Section 871(m) is complex and its application may depend on your particular circumstances, including whether you enter into other transactions with respect to an Underlying Security.  If necessary, further information regarding the potential application of Section 871(m) will be provided in the pricing supplement for the Notes.  You should consult your tax adviser regarding the potential application of Section 871(m) to the Notes.

The discussions in the preceding paragraphs, when read in combination with the section entitled “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences” (and in particular the subsection thereof entitled “— Tax Consequences to U.S. Holders — Notes with a Term of More than One Year — Notes Treated as Contingent Payment Debt Instruments”) in the accompanying product supplement, to the extent they reflect statements of law, constitute the full opinion of Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP regarding the material U.S. federal income tax consequences of owning and disposing of the Notes.

Comparable Yield and Projected Payment Schedule

We will determine the comparable yield for the Notes and will provide that comparable yield and the related projected payment schedule (or information about how to obtain them) in the pricing supplement for the Notes, which we will file with the SEC.  The comparable yield for the Notes will be determined based upon a variety of factors, including actual market conditions and our borrowing costs for debt instruments of comparable maturities at the time of issuance.  The comparable yield and projected payment schedule are determined solely to calculate the amount on which you will be taxed with respect to the Notes in each year and are neither a prediction nor a guarantee of what the actual yield will be.

Key Risks

An investment in the Notes involves significant risks. Investing in the Notes is not equivalent to investing directly in the Underlying. These risks are explained in more detail in the “Risk Factors” sections of the accompanying prospectus supplement, the accompanying product supplement and the accompanying underlying supplement. We also urge you to consult your investment, legal, tax, accounting and other advisers before you invest in the Notes.

Risks Relating to the Notes Generally

tThe Notes May Not Pay More Than the Principal Amount Plus a Return Equal to the Minimum Return at Maturity — You may receive a lower payment at maturity than you would have received if you had invested in a traditional fixed-rated debt security of a similar term from us or if you had invested directly in the Underlying, the securities included in the Underlying or contracts relating to the Underlying for which there is an active secondary market. If (i) a Barrier Event has occurred or (ii) a Barrier Event has not occurred and the absolute value of the Underlying Return is less than or equal to the Minimum Return, you will receive only the principal amount of your notes plus a return equal to the Minimum Return at maturity, and you will not be compensated for any loss in value due to inflation and other factors relating to the value of money over time.

tCredit Risks of JPMorgan Financial and JPMorgan Chase & Co. — The Notes are unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the Issuer, JPMorgan Chase Financial Company LLC, the payment on which is fully and unconditionally guaranteed by JPMorgan Chase & Co. The Notes will rank pari passu with all of our other unsecured and unsubordinated obligations, and the related guarantee JPMorgan Chase & Co. will rank pari passu with all of JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s other unsecured and unsubordinated obligations. The Notes and related guarantees are not, either directly or indirectly, an obligation of any third party. Any payment to be made on the Notes, including any repayment of principal, depends on the ability of JPMorgan Financial and JPMorgan Chase & Co. to satisfy their obligations as they come due. As a result, the actual and perceived creditworthiness of JPMorgan Financial and JPMorgan Chase & Co. may affect the market value of the Notes and, in the event JPMorgan Financial and JPMorgan Chase & Co. were to default on their obligations, you may not receive any amounts owed to you under the terms of the Notes and you could lose your entire investment.
tAs a Finance Subsidiary, JPMorgan Financial Has No Independent Operations and Limited Assets — As a finance subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase & Co., we have no independent operations beyond the issuance and administration of our securities. Aside from the initial capital contribution from JPMorgan Chase & Co., substantially all of our assets relate to obligations of our affiliates to make payments under loans made by us or other intercompany agreements. As a result, we are dependent upon payments from our affiliates to meet our obligations under the Notes. If these affiliates do not make payments to us and we fail to make payments on the Notes, you may have to seek payment under the related guarantee by JPMorgan Chase & Co., and that guarantee will rank pari passu with all other unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of JPMorgan Chase & Co.
tThe Appreciation Potential of the Notes Is Limited by the Upper Barrier and the Lower Barrier If a Barrier Event Has Not Occurred — Because the payment at maturity will not reflect the absolute value of the Underlying Return if a Barrier Event has occurred, the Upper Barrier and the Lower Barrier are effectively a cap on your return at maturity. Because the Upper Barrier is equal to the Initial Value plus 25.00% of the Initial Value and the Lower Barrier is equal to the Initial Value minus 25.00% of the Initial Value, the maximum payment at maturity is $1,250 per $1,000 principal amount Note.
tThe Appreciation Potential of the Notes Is Limited to the Minimum Return If a Barrier Event Has Occurred — If a Barrier Event has occurred, the return on your Notes at maturity will be limited to the Minimum Return, regardless of any appreciation or depreciation of the Underlying, which may be significant.
tThe Benefit Provided by the Upper Barrier and the Lower Barrier May Terminate on Any Day During the Observation Period — If, on any day during the Observation Period, the closing level of the Underlying is greater than the Upper Barrier or less than the Lower Barrier (i.e., a Barrier Event occurs), you will receive at maturity a return equal to only the Minimum Return, and you will not participate in the absolute value of the Underlying Return, regardless of any appreciation or depreciation of the Underlying, which may be significant.
tThe Repayment of Principal Applies Only If You Hold the Notes to Maturity — You should be willing to hold your Notes to maturity. If you are able to sell your Notes in the secondary market, if any, prior to maturity, you may have to sell them at a loss relative to your initial investment even if the closing level of the Underlying is above the Initial Value. If you hold the Notes to maturity, JPMorgan Financial will repay your principal amount. The repayment of principal applies only if you hold your Notes to maturity.
tNo Interest Payments — JPMorgan Financial will not make any interest payments to you with respect to the Notes.
tThe Probability That a Barrier Event Will Occur Will Depend on the Volatility of the Underlying — “Volatility” refers to the frequency and magnitude of changes in the level of the Underlying. Greater expected volatility with respect to the Underlying reflects a higher expectation as of the Trade Date that a Barrier Event will occur during the Observation Period, resulting in the loss of the opportunity to earn a return on the Notes at maturity based on the absolute value of the Underlying Return. However, the Underlying’s volatility can change significantly over the term of the Notes. The level of the Underlying could rise or fall sharply, which could trigger a Barrier Event and result in your receiving only the Minimum Return at maturity.
tInvesting in the Notes Is Not Equivalent to Investing in the Stocks Composing the Underlying — Investing in the Notes is not equivalent to investing in the stocks included in the Underlying. As an investor in the Notes, you will not have any ownership interest or rights in the stocks included in the Underlying, such as voting rights, dividend payments or other distributions.
tWe Cannot Control Actions by the Sponsor of the Underlying and That Sponsor Has No Obligation to Consider Your Interests — We and our affiliates are not affiliated with the sponsor of the Underlying and have no ability to control or predict its actions, including any errors in or discontinuation of public disclosure regarding methods or policies relating to the calculation of the Underlying. The sponsor of the Underlying is not involved in this Note offering in any way and has no obligation to consider your interest as an owner of the Notes in taking any actions that might affect the market value of your Notes.
tYour Return on the Notes Will Not Reflect Dividends on the Stocks Composing the Underlying — Your return on the Notes will not reflect the return you would realize if you actually owned the stock included in the Underlying and received the dividends on the stock included in the Underlying. This is because the calculation agent will calculate the amount payable to you at maturity of the Notes by reference to the Final Value, which reflects the closing level of the Underlying on the Final Valuation Date without taking into consideration the value of dividends on the stock included in the Underlying.

6

 
tLack 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.

tTax Treatment — Significant aspects of the tax treatment of the Notes are uncertain. You should consult your tax adviser about your tax situation.
tThe Final Terms and Valuation of the Notes Will Be Finalized on the Trade Date and Provided in the Pricing Supplement — The final terms of the Notes will be based on relevant market conditions when the terms of the Notes are set and will be finalized on the Trade Date and provided in the pricing supplement. In particular, each of the estimated value of the Notes and the Minimum Return will be finalized on the Trade Date and provided in the pricing supplement and each may be as low as the minimum set forth on the cover of this pricing supplement. Accordingly, you should consider your potential investment in the Notes based on the minimums for the estimated value of the Notes and the Minimum Return.

Risks Relating to Conflicts of Interest

tPotential 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 and making the assumptions used to determine the pricing of the Notes and the estimated value of the Notes when the terms of the Notes are set, which we refer to as the estimated value of the Notes. In performing these duties, our and JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s 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 and JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s business activities, including hedging and trading activities, could cause our and JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s 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 in connection with the Notes 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 Conflicts of Interest” in the accompanying product supplement for additional information about these risks.
tPotentially Inconsistent Research, Opinions or Recommendations by JPMS, UBS or Their Affiliates — JPMS, UBS or their affiliates may publish research, express opinions or provide recommendations that are inconsistent with investing in or holding the Notes, and that may be revised at any time. Any such research, opinions or recommendations may or may not recommend that investors buy or hold investments linked to the Underlying and could affect the value of the Underlying, and therefore the market value of the Notes.
tPotential JPMorgan Financial Impact on the Market Price of the Underlying — Trading or transactions by JPMorgan Financial or its affiliates in the Underlying or in futures, options or other derivative products on the Underlying may adversely affect the market value of the Underlying and, therefore, the market value of the Notes.

Risks Relating to the Estimated Value and Secondary Market Prices of the Notes

tThe Estimated Value of the Notes Will Be Lower Than the Original Issue Price (Price to Public) of the Notes — The estimated value of the Notes is only an estimate determined by reference to several factors. The original issue price of the Notes will exceed the estimated value of the Notes because costs associated with selling, structuring and hedging the Notes are included in the original issue price of the Notes. These costs include the selling commissions, the projected profits, if any, that our affiliates expect to realize for assuming risks inherent in hedging our obligations under the Notes and the estimated cost of hedging our obligations under the Notes. See “The Estimated Value of the Notes” in this pricing supplement.
tThe Estimated Value of the Notes Does Not Represent Future Values of the Notes and May Differ from Others’ Estimates — The estimated value of the Notes is determined by reference to internal pricing models of our affiliates when the terms of the Notes are set. This estimated value of the Notes is based on market conditions and other relevant factors existing at that time and assumptions about market parameters, which can include volatility, dividend rates, interest rates and other factors. Different pricing models and assumptions could provide valuations for the Notes that are greater than or less than the estimated value of the Notes. In addition, market conditions and other relevant factors in the future may change, and any assumptions may prove to be incorrect. On future dates, the value of the Notes could change significantly based on, among other things, changes in market conditions, our or JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s creditworthiness, interest rate movements and other relevant factors, which may impact the price, if any, at which JPMS would be willing to buy Notes from you in secondary market transactions. See “The Estimated Value of the Notes” in this pricing supplement.
tThe Estimated Value of the Notes Is Derived by Reference to an Internal Funding Rate — The internal funding rate used in the determination of the estimated value of the Notes may differ from the market-implied funding rate for vanilla fixed income instruments of a similar maturity issued by JPMorgan Chase & Co. or its affiliates. Any difference may be based on, among other things, our and our affiliates’ view of the funding value of the Notes as well as the higher issuance, operational and ongoing liability management costs of the Notes in comparison to those costs for the conventional fixed income instruments of JPMorgan Chase & Co. This internal funding rate is based on certain market inputs and assumptions, which may prove to be incorrect, and is intended to approximate the prevailing market replacement funding rate for the Notes. The use of an internal funding rate and any potential changes to that rate may have an adverse effect on the terms of the Notes and any secondary market prices of the Notes. See “The Estimated Value of the Notes” in this pricing supplement.
tThe Value of the Notes as Published by JPMS (and Which May Be Reflected on Customer Account Statements) May Be Higher Than the Then-Current Estimated Value of the Notes for a Limited Time Period — We generally expect that some of the costs included in the original issue price of the Notes will be partially paid back to you in connection with any repurchases of your Notes by JPMS in an amount that will decline to zero over an initial predetermined period. These costs can include selling commissions, projected hedging profits, if any, and, in some circumstances, estimated hedging costs and our internal secondary market funding rates

   for structured debt issuances. See “Secondary Market Prices of the Notes” in this pricing supplement for additional information relating to this initial period. Accordingly, the estimated value of your Notes during this initial period may be lower than the value of the Notes as published by JPMS (and which may be shown on your customer account statements).
tSecondary Market Prices of the Notes Will Likely Be Lower Than the Original Issue Price of the Notes — Any secondary market prices of the Notes will likely be lower than the original issue price of the Notes because, among other things, secondary market prices take into account our internal secondary market funding rates for structured debt issuances and, also, because secondary market prices may exclude selling commissions, projected hedging profits, if any, and estimated hedging costs that are included in the original issue price of the Notes. As a result, the price, if any, at which JPMS will be willing to buy Notes from you in secondary market transactions, if at all, is likely to be lower than the original issue price. Any sale by you prior to the Maturity Date could result in a substantial loss to you. See the immediately following risk factor for information about additional factors that will impact any secondary market prices of the Notes.

The Notes are not designed to be short-term trading instruments. Accordingly, you should be able and willing to hold your Notes to maturity. See “— Risks Relating to the Notes Generally — Lack of Liquidity” above.

tMany Economic and Market Factors Will Impact the Value of the Notes — As described under “The Estimated Value of the Notes” in this pricing supplement, the Notes can be thought of as Notes that combine a fixed-income debt component with one or more derivatives. As a result, the factors that influence the values of fixed-income debt and derivative instruments will also influence the terms of the Notes at issuance and their value in the secondary market. Accordingly, the secondary market price of the Notes during their term will be impacted by a number of economic and market factors, which may either offset or magnify each other, aside from the selling commissions, projected hedging profits, if any, estimated hedging costs and the level of the Underlying, including:
tany actual or potential change in our or JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s creditworthiness or credit spreads;
tcustomary bid-ask spreads for similarly sized trades;
tour internal secondary market funding rates for structured debt issuances;
tthe actual and expected volatility in the level of the Underlying;
tthe time to maturity of the Notes;
tthe dividend rates on the equity securities included in the Underlying;
tinterest and yield rates in the market generally; and
ta variety of other economic, financial, political, regulatory and judicial events.

Additionally, independent pricing vendors and/or third party broker-dealers may publish a price for the Notes, which may also be reflected on customer account statements. This price may be different (higher or lower) than the price of the Notes, if any, at which JPMS may be willing to purchase your Notes in the secondary market.

Risks Relating to the Underlying

¨JPMorgan Chase & Co. Is Currently One of the Companies that Make Up the Underlying — JPMorgan Chase & Co. is currently one of the companies that make up the Underlying. JPMorgan Chase & Co. 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 Underlying and the Notes.

Hypothetical Examples and Return Table

Hypothetical terms only. Actual terms may vary. See the cover page for actual offering terms.

The following table and hypothetical examples below illustrate the payment at maturity per $1,000 principal amount Note for a hypothetical range of Underlying Returns from -100.00% to +100.00% on an offering of the Notes linked to a hypothetical Underlying, and assume a hypothetical Initial Value of 100, a hypothetical Upper Barrier of 115 (equal to the Initial Value plus 15% of the Initial Value), a hypothetical Lower Barrier of 85 (equal to the Initial Value minus 15% of the Initial Value) and a hypothetical Minimum Return of 1.00%. The hypothetical Initial Value of 100 has been chosen for illustrative purposes only and may not represent a likely Initial Value. The actual Initial Value will be based on the closing level of the Underlying on the Trade Date and will be provided in the pricing supplement. For historical data regarding the actual closing levels of the Underlying, please see the historical information set forth under “The Underlying” in this pricing supplement. The actual Upper Barrier and Lower Barrier percentages are specified on the cover of this pricing supplement. The actual Minimum Return will be finalized on the Trade Date and provided in the pricing supplement. The hypothetical payment at maturity examples set forth below are for illustrative purposes only and may not be the actual returns applicable to a purchaser of the Notes. The actual payment at maturity may be more or less than the amounts displayed below and will be determined based on the actual terms of the Notes, including the Initial Value, the Upper Barrier and the Lower Barrier and the Minimum Return to be finalized on the Trade Date and provided in the pricing supplement and the Final Value on the Final Valuation Date. You should consider carefully whether the Notes are suitable to your investment goals. The numbers appearing in the table below have been rounded for ease of analysis.

EXAMPLES 1 THROUGH 3 ASSUME THAT A BARRIER EVENT HAS OCCURRED

Example 1 — The level of the Underlying increases by 50% from the Initial Value of 100 to the Final Value of 150. Although the Underlying Return of 50% is significantly greater than the Minimum Return of 1.00%, because a Barrier Event has occurred, JPMorgan Financial will pay you your principal amount plus a return equal to only the Minimum Return of 1.00%, resulting in a payment at maturity of $1,010.00 per $1,000 principal amount Note, calculated as follows:

$1,000 + ($1,000 × Minimum Return)
$1,000 + ($1,000 × 1% ) = $1,010.00

Example 2 — The level of the Underlying increases by 10% from the Initial Value of 100 to the Final Value of 110. Although the Underlying Return of 10% is greater than the Minimum Return of 1.00%, because a Barrier Event has occurred, JPMorgan Financial will pay you your principal amount plus a return equal to only the Minimum Return of 1.00%, resulting in a payment at maturity of $1,010.00 per $1,000 principal amount Note, calculated as follows:

$1,000 + ($1,000 × Minimum Return)
$1,000 + ($1,000 × 1% ) = $1,010.00

Even though the Final Value is between the Upper Barrier and the Lower Barrier, because a Barrier Event has occurred, you return on the Notes is not determined based on the absolute value of the Underlying Return and is limited to the Minimum Return.

Example 3 — The level of the Underlying decreases by 10% from the Initial Value of 100 to the Final Value of 90. Although the Underlying Return is negative, because a Barrier Event has occurred, JPMorgan Financial will pay you your principal amount plus a return equal to the Minimum Return of 1.00%, resulting in a payment at maturity of $1,010.00 per $1,000 principal amount Note, calculated as follows:

$1,000 + ($1,000 × Minimum Return)
$1,000 + ($1,000 × 1% ) = $1,010.00

However, even though the Final Value is between the Upper Barrier and the Lower Barrier, because a Barrier Event has occurred, you return on the Notes is not determined based on the absolute value of the Underlying Return and is limited to the Minimum Return.

EXAMPLES 4 THROUGH 6 ASSUME THAT A BARRIER EVENT HAS NOT OCCURRED

Example 4 — The level of the Underlying increases by 10% from the Initial Value of 100 to the Final Value of 110. Because a Barrier Event has not occurred and the absolute value of the Underlying Return, which is 10%, is greater than the Minimum Return of 1.00%, JPMorgan Financial will pay you your principal amount plus an amount representing the absolute value of the Underlying Return, resulting in a payment at maturity of $1,100.00 per $1,000 principal amount Note, calculated as follows:

$1,000 + ($1,000 × greater of (i) Minimum Return and (ii) absolute value of Underlying Return)
$1,000 + ($1,000 × absolute value of Underlying Return)
$1,000 + ($1,000 × 10%) = $1,100

Example 5 — The level of the Underlying increases by 0.50% from the Initial Value of 100 to the Final Value of 100.50. Because a Barrier Event has not occurred and the absolute value of the Underlying Return, which is 0.50%, is less than the Minimum Return of 1.00%, JPMorgan Financial will pay you your principal amount plus a return equal to the Minimum Return, resulting in a payment at maturity of $1,010.00 per $1,000 principal amount Note, calculated as follows:

$1,000 + ($1,000 × greater of (i) Minimum Return and (ii) absolute value of Underlying Return)
$1,000 + ($1,000 × Minimum Return)
$1,000 + ($1,000 × 1%) = $1,010

Example 6 — The level of the Underlying decreases by 10% from the Initial Value of 100 to the Final Value of 90. Although the Underlying Return is negative, because a Barrier Event has not occurred and the absolute value of the Underlying Return, which is 10%, is greater than the Minimum Return of 1.00%, JPMorgan Financial will pay you your principal amount plus an amount representing the absolute value of the Underlying Return, resulting in a payment at maturity of $1,100.00 per $1,000 principal amount Note, calculated as follows:

$1,000 + ($1,000 × greater of (i) Minimum Return and (ii) absolute value of Underlying Return)
$1,000 + ($1,000 × absolute value of Underlying Return)
$1,000 + ($1,000 × 10%) = $1,100

The hypothetical returns and hypothetical payments on the Notes shown above apply only if you hold the Notes for their entire term. These hypotheticals 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.

Chart

Description automatically generated

The historical performance of the Underlying should not be taken as an indication of future performance, and no assurance can be given as to the closing level of the Underlying on the Trade Date or the Final Valuation Date. There can be no assurance that the performance of the Underlying will result in the return of more than your principal amount plus a return equal to the Minimum Return at maturity, subject to the credit risks of JPMorgan Financial and JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Supplemental Plan of Distribution

We and JPMorgan Chase & Co. have agreed to indemnify UBS and JPMS against liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or to contribute to payments that UBS may be required to make relating to these liabilities as described in the prospectus supplement and the prospectus. We will agree that UBS may sell all or a part of the Notes that it purchases from us to the public or its affiliates at the price to public indicated on the cover hereof.

Subject to regulatory constraints, JPMS intends to offer to purchase the Notes in the secondary market, but it is not required to do so.

We or our affiliates may enter into swap agreements or related hedge transactions with one of our other affiliates or unaffiliated counterparties in connection with the sale of the Notes, and JPMS and/or an affiliate may earn additional income as a result of payments pursuant to the swap or related hedge transactions. See “Supplemental Use of Proceeds” in this pricing supplement and “Use of Proceeds and Hedging” in the accompanying product supplement.

We expect that delivery of the Notes will be made against payment for the Notes on or about the Original Issue Date set forth on the front cover of this pricing supplement, which will be the third business day following the Trade Date of the Notes (this settlement cycle being referred to as “T+3”).  Under Rule 15c6-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days, unless the parties to that trade expressly agree otherwise.  Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade Notes on any date prior to two business days before delivery will be required to specify an alternate settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement and should consult their own advisors.

The Estimated Value of the Notes

The estimated value of the Notes set forth on the cover of this pricing supplement is equal to the sum of the values of the following hypothetical components: (1) a fixed-income debt component with the same maturity as the Notes, valued using the internal funding rate described below, and (2) the derivative or derivatives underlying the economic terms of the Notes. The estimated value of the Notes does not represent a minimum price at which JPMS would be willing to buy your Notes in any secondary market (if any exists) at any time. The internal funding rate used in the determination of the estimated value of the Notes may differ from the market-implied funding rate for vanilla fixed income instruments of a similar maturity issued by JPMorgan Chase & Co. or its affiliates. Any difference may be based on, among other things, our and our affiliates’ view of the funding values of the Notes as well as the higher issuance, operational and ongoing liability management costs of the Notes in comparison to those costs for the conventional fixed income instruments of JPMorgan Chase & Co. This internal funding rate is based on certain market inputs and assumptions, which may prove to be incorrect, and is intended to approximate the prevailing market replacement funding rate for the Notes. The use of an internal funding rate and any potential changes to that rate may have an adverse effect on the terms of the Notes and any secondary market prices of the Notes. For additional

12

 


information, see “Key Risks — Risks Relating to the Estimated Value and Secondary Market Prices of the Notes — The Estimated Value of the Notes Is Derived by Reference to an Internal Funding Rate” in this pricing supplement. The value of the derivative or derivatives underlying the economic terms of the Notes is derived from internal pricing models of our affiliates. These models are dependent on inputs such as the traded market prices of comparable derivative instruments and on various other inputs, some of which are market-observable, and which can include volatility, dividend rates, interest rates and other factors, as well as assumptions about future market events and/or environments. Accordingly, the estimated value of the Notes is determined when the terms of the Notes are set based on market conditions and other relevant factors and assumptions existing at that time. See “Key Risks — Risks Relating to the Estimated Value and Secondary Market Prices of the Notes — The Estimated Value of the Notes Does Not Represent Future Values of the Notes and May Differ from Others’ Estimates” in this pricing supplement.

The estimated value of the Notes will be lower than the original issue price of the Notes because costs associated with selling, structuring and hedging the Notes are included in the original issue price of the Notes. These costs include the selling commissions paid to UBS, the projected profits, if any, that our affiliates expect to realize for assuming risks inherent in hedging our obligations under the Notes and the estimated cost of hedging our obligations under the Notes. Because hedging our obligations entails risk and may be influenced by market forces beyond our control, this hedging may result in a profit that is more or less than expected, or it may result in a loss. We or one or more of our affiliates will retain any profits realized in hedging our obligations under the Notes. See “Key Risks — Risks Relating to the Estimated Value and Secondary Market Prices of the Notes — The Estimated Value of the Notes Will Be Lower Than the Original Issue Price (Price to Public) of the Notes” in this pricing supplement.

For information about factors that will impact any secondary market prices of the Notes, see “Key Risks — Risks Relating to the Estimated Value and Secondary Market Prices of the Notes — Secondary Market Prices of the Notes Will Be Impacted by Many Economic and Market Factors” in this pricing supplement. In addition, we generally expect that some of the costs included in the original issue price of the Notes will be partially paid back to you in connection with any repurchases of your Notes by JPMS in an amount that will decline to zero over an initial predetermined period that is intended to be up to five months. The length of any such initial period reflects secondary market volumes for the Notes, the structure of the Notes, whether our affiliates expect to earn a profit in connection with our hedging activities, the estimated costs of hedging the Notes and when these costs are incurred, as determined by our affiliates. See “Key Risks — Risks Relating to the Estimated Value and Secondary Market Prices of the Notes — The Value of the Notes as Published by JPMS (and Which May Be Reflected on Customer Account Statements) May Be Higher Than the Then-Current Estimated Value of the Notes for a Limited Time Period” in this pricing supplement.

Supplemental Use of Proceeds

The Notes are offered to meet investor demand for products that reflect the risk-return profile and market exposure provided by the Notes. See “Hypothetical Examples and Return Table” in this pricing supplement for an illustration of the risk-return profile of the Notes and “The Underlying” in this pricing supplement for a description of the market exposure provided by the Notes.

The original issue price of the Notes is equal to the estimated value of the Notes plus the selling commissions paid to UBS, plus (minus) the projected profits (losses) that our affiliates expect to realize for assuming risks inherent in hedging our obligations under the Notes, plus the estimated cost of hedging our obligations under the Notes.

Supplemental Information About the Form of the Notes

The Notes will initially be represented by a type of global security that we refer to as a master note.  A master note represents multiple securities that may be issued at different times and that may have different terms.  The trustee and/or paying agent will, in accordance with instructions from us, make appropriate entries or notations in its records relating to the master note representing the Notes to indicate that the master note evidences the Notes.
