Summary of Terms           Investment Description
Issuer   Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (“CIBC”)      

·     Linked to the Nasdaq-100® Index

·     Unlike ordinary debt securities, the securities do not pay interest or repay a fixed amount of principal at maturity.

o  If the level of the Index does not change or decreases by not more than 7.50%:

You will be repaid the principal amount

o  If the level of the Index decreases by more than 7.50%:

You will receive less than the principal amount and will have 1-to-1 downside exposure to the decrease in the level of the Index in excess of 7.50%

·     Investors may lose up to 92.50% of the principal amount

·     Any positive return on the securities will be limited to the return represented by the Capped Value

·     All payments on the securities are subject to the credit risk of CIBC, and you will have no ability to pursue the securities included in the Index for payment; if CIBC defaults on its obligations, you could lose some or all of your investment

·     No periodic interest payments or dividends

How the Redemption Amount Is Calculated

 

The Redemption Amount will be determined as follows:

 

If the Ending Level is greater than the Starting Level, the Redemption Amount will be equal to the lesser of:

 

(i)    $1,000 plus

 

 

 

(ii)   the Capped Value

 

If the Ending Level is less than or equal to the Starting Level, but greater than or equal to the Threshold Level, the Redemption Amount will be equal to $1,000

 

If the Ending Level is less than the Threshold Level, the Redemption Amount will be equal to $1,000 minus

 

  $1,000 x Threshold Level – Ending Level  
Starting Level

 

In such a case, you will lose up to 92.50% of your principal amount.
