Barclays Bank PLC (“Barclays”) is issuing a reminder notice today that the iPath® Shiller CAPE™ ETNs (the “ETNs”) are scheduled to mature on October 12, 2022 (the “maturity date”). The ETNs currently trade on the NYSE Arca exchange under the ticker symbol “CAPD”. On the maturity date, Barclays will pay to holders a cash payment per ETN equal to the closing indicative value (as defined in the pricing supplement relating to the ETNs) on October 4, 2022, the final valuation date. Following their maturity, the ETNs will cease to be outstanding and no further payments will be due on the ETNs.
Until the close of trading on October 11th, 2022, holders can continue to sell their ETNs on the secondary market at the prevailing trading price on the exchange. In addition, holders can continue to redeem their ETNs to Barclays under the holder redemption option until the valuation date immediately prior to the final valuation date specified in the pricing supplement relating to the ETNs.
Barclays is also announcing, effective as of the open of trading on August 15th, 2022, a waiver of the minimum holder redemption size of 25,000 ETNs, which will be in effect until the maturity of the ETNs. Any redemption of ETNs is subject to the other conditions described in the pricing supplement for the ETNs and will be valued using the applicable closing indicative value on the valuation date for the transaction. In addition, Barclays will accept holder redemptions where, at the election of the holder, the applicable valuation date for such holder redemption is the same date as that of the holder redemption notice, if such notice is delivered to Barclays no later than 2:00 pm Eastern time on such valuation date. If not specified, the applicable valuation date for a holder redemption will be the first valuation date after the date on which the notice of holder redemption is delivered, in accordance with the procedures set forth in the prospectus relating to the ETNs.

Selected Risk Considerations
An investment in the ETNs described herein involves risks. Selected risks are summarized here, but we urge you to read the more detailed explanation of risks described under “Risk Factors” in the applicable prospectus supplement and pricing supplement.
You May Lose Some or All of Your Principal: The ETNs are exposed to any change in the level of the underlying index between the inception date and the applicable valuation date. Additionally, if the level of the underlying index is insufficient to offset the negative effect of the investor fee and other applicable costs, you will lose some or all of your investment at maturity or upon redemption, even if the value of such index has increased. Because the ETNs are subject to an investor fee and other applicable costs, the return on the ETNs will always be lower than the total return on a direct investment in the index components. The ETNs are riskier than ordinary unsecured debt securities and have no principal protection.
Credit of Barclays Bank PLC: The ETNs are unsecured debt obligations of Barclays Bank PLC and are not, either directly or indirectly, an obligation of or guaranteed by any third party. Any payment to be made on the ETNs, including any payment at maturity or upon redemption, depends on the ability of Barclays Bank PLC to satisfy its obligations as they come due. As a result, the actual and perceived creditworthiness of Barclays Bank PLC will affect the market value, if any, of the ETNs prior to maturity or redemption. In addition, if Barclays Bank PLC were to default on its obligations, you may not receive any amounts owed to you under the terms of the ETNs.
Issuer Redemption: If specified in the applicable prospectus, Barclays Bank PLC will have the right to redeem or call the ETNs (in whole but not in part) at its sole discretion and without your consent on any trading day on or after the inception date until and including maturity.
A Trading Market for the ETNs May Not Develop: Although the ETNs are listed on a U.S. national securities exchange, a trading market for the ETNs may not develop and the liquidity of the ETNs may be limited, as we are not required to maintain any listing of the ETNs.
No Interest Payments from the ETNs: You may not receive any interest payments on the ETNs.
Dynamic Allocation and Strategy Risk: The value of the index will depend upon the success of the index in dynamically allocating among the Sector Indices. The allocation among the Sector Indices is based upon a proprietary index methodology sponsored by Barclays Bank PLC that may not provide outperformance relative to any alternative allocation among the Sector Indices or a diversified portfolio generally, and is made in accordance with pre-defined weightings that may not be optimal.
Restrictions on the Minimum Number of ETNs and Date Restrictions for Redemptions: Except as specified in the pricing supplement, you must redeem at least the minimum number of ETNs specified in the pricing supplement at one time in order to exercise your right to redeem your ETNs on any redemption date. You may only redeem your ETNs on a redemption date if we receive a notice of redemption from you by certain dates and times as set forth in the pricing supplement.
Uncertain Tax Treatment: Significant aspects of the tax treatment of the ETNs are uncertain. You should consult your own tax advisor about your own tax situation.
The ETNs may be sold throughout the day on the exchange through any brokerage account. Commissions may apply and there are tax consequences in the event of sale, redemption or maturity of ETNs. Sales in the secondary market may result in significant losses.
