[Letterhead of Buyer, the Undertaking provider] [Date of confirmation] DFT Terms confirmation DFT Terms Agreement for the Mu ‘Addal Ribh Mutaghayyer  (Floating  (Floating Profit Rate or FLPR) Leg 1  of a Mubadalatul Arbaah Arbaah (MA) (Profit Rate Swap) (Wa'ad-based and involving a Single Sale structure) [Name and address of Seller]

Dear

:

PART 1 INTRODUCTORY PREAMBLE AND PRODUCT DESCRIPTION 1. Preamble and Product Description 1.1 Preamble. The purpose of this [letter] (this " DFT Terms confirmation") is to confirm the terms and

conditions of the DFT Terms Agreement entered into between us on the Trade Date specified below (the, or this, "DFT Terms Agreement").

1

  Note that th this is DFT Terms confirmation documents only one leg (a floating pprofit rofit rate leg or FLPR leg) of a Single Sale structure Profit Rate Swap. For Shari'ah reasons, a separate DFT Terms confirmation should be used to document the other leg of the Profit Rate Swap, for example, a Fixed Profit Rate (or FPR) Leg. The cashflow generated by this floating profit rate leg would be the floating rate part of the Profit Profit Rate Swap. A party may enter such a Profit Profit Rate Swap where, for example, it is highly dependent on floating income, it has large fixed rate liabilities and for risk management purposes it wishes to hedge some of its fixed liabilities with floating income and, to do so, it enters into a profit rate swap under which it will receive fixed profit rate payments and it will pay floating profit rate payments (thereby converting some of its fluctuating floating rate income to stable stable fixed rate income). The cashflow generated by the other leg of the Profit Rate Swap would be the Fixed Profit Rate Leg, i.e. the fixed rate part of the Profit Rate Swap. A party may enter such a Profit Rate Swap where, for example, it has a floating profit rate liability (say, under a floating  Ijarah liability), it wishes to protect itself against fluctuations in that floating profit rate and, to do so, it enters into a profit rate swap under which it will receive the floating profit rate (thereby hedging its floating profit rate liability) and it will pay the fixed profit rate (so in effect fixing its liability).

contemplates entry into more than one Designated Future transaction, then, notwithstanding such entryinto a Transaction, this DFT Terms confirmation and this DFT Terms Agreement shall remain in full force and effect as, respectively, a DFT Terms confirmation and a DFT Terms Agreement in respect of all remaining Designated Future transactions to which they relate. 1.2 Product Description.2  This DFT Terms confirmation relates to a  Mubadalatul Arbaah (MA) 

(profit rate swap) whereby each party grants a Wa'ad   (undertaking) to the other party to purchase Shari'ah compliant assets from such other party on one or more specified future dates at its election, subject to a specified condition being satisfied, on the basis of  Murabaha transactions to be entered into on each exercise of the Wa'ad (undertaking) by such other party and where the purchase price payable is to be determined by reference to the cost price of the assets plus a profit amount. This DFT Terms confirmation contains the Wa'ad (undertaking) given by Party [A/B]. Under a related DFT Terms Agreement, Party [B/A] grants or will grant a Wa'ad   (undertaking) in respect of such  Mubadalatul  Arbaah (MA) (profit rate swap).

2

  The Wa'ad-based  Single   Single Sale structure Profit Rate Swap envisages that under each leg one party (A) gives a Wa'ad  (or  (or undertaking) to the other party (B) under which B may, if the specified condition set out in this DFT Terms confirmation is satisfied, exercise A's Wa'ad  in  in relation to a Calculation Period requiring A to buy from B a Shari'ah compliant asset in respect of that Calculation Period. At the same time, under the separate DFT Terms confirmation for the other leg of the Profit Rate Swap, B would give a Wa'ad  to   to A in relation to each Calculation Period under which, if the specified condition set out in that other DFT Terms confirmation is satisfied, A may exercise B's Wa'ad , requiring B to buy from A a different Shari'ah compliant asset in respect of that that Calculation Period. Each Wa'ad  will  will be exercisable only if the relevant specified condition is satisfied. The specified condition/conditions should be such that, if the specified condition under one DFT Terms confirmation is satisfied then the specified condition under the other DFT Terms confirmation will not be satisfied, so that only one of A's or B's Wa'ad  will  will be exercisable in respect of a particular Calculation Period. Therefore, there will be only one sale per Calculation Period, one by A to B or one by B to A, depending on which Wa'ad  is  is exercisable and exercised.

Whenever the Calculation Agent is required to act, make a determination or to exercise judgement in any other way, it will do so in good faith and in a commercially reasonable manner. The Calculation Agent is responsible for: (a) calculating the applicable FLPR and applicable Reference Rate for each Payment Date or for each Calculation Period; (b) calculating any Reference Rate Amount for FLPR for each Payment Date or for each Calculation Period; (c) calculating any Payment Amount payable on each Payment Date or for each Calculation Period; (d) determining the Cost Price and the Profit in respect of any Payment Date; (e) determining whether the Exercise Condition is satisfied in relation to an Exercise Date and a Payment Date; (f) giving notice to the Buyer and the Seller in respect of each Payment Date or Calculation Period, specifying (i) the Payment Date, (ii) the Profit in respect of a Payment Date; (iii) whether or not the Exercise Condition is satisfied in respect of an Exercise Date and a Payment Date; (iv) the Payment Amount payable on a Payment Date; and (v) reasonable details as to how the amount or amounts were determined; (g) selecting leading dealers to act as reference banks or dealers, if relevant; and (h) performing any other duties specified in this DFT Terms confirmation as being duties required to be performed by the Calculation Agent.

(c) "Reset Date" means the day or days specified as such (or determined pursuant to a method specified for such purpose) in this DFT Terms Agreement, subject to adjustment in accordance with any applicable Business Day Convention which, if a Business Day Convention is not specified in this DFT Terms Agreement as being applicable to Reset Dates, shall be the Business Day Convention applicable to Payment Dates, unless an adjustment in accordance with that Business Day Convention would cause a Reset Date to fall on the Payment Date in respect of the Calculation Period to which that Reset Date relates, in which case that Reset Date shall be adjusted in accordance with the Preceding Business Day Convention.  (d) "Spread" means the per annum rate (which may be ppositive ositive or negative), if any, expressed as a decimal, specified as such in this DFT Terms confirmation. For the purposes of determining a Payment Amount, (i) if the Spread is positive, the Spread will be added to the FLPR, and (ii) if the Spread is negative, the absolute value of the Spread will be subtracted from the FLPR. (e) "FLPR Day Count Fraction" means the the Day Count Fraction specified as such in this DFT Terms confirmation.

(f)

"Reference Rate Amount for FLPR" means an amount equal to the product of: (i)

the Capital Amount; and

(ii) the sum of (A) the relevant Reference Rate, and (B) the relevant Reference Rate Spread (if any); and (iii)

the Reference Rate Day Count Fraction.

(g) "Reference Rate" means the per annum rate, expressed as a decimal, specified as such in this DFT Terms confirmation. (h) "Reference Rate Day Count Fraction" means the Day Count Fraction specified as such in this DFT Terms confirmation. 8. Related Transactions 8.1. Related DFT Terms confirmation. "Related DFT Terms confirmation" means each DFT Terms

confirmation so specified in this DFT Terms confirmation. 8  8.2. Related Transaction. "Related Transaction" means a Transaction entered into between the parties

pursuant to a Related DFT Terms confirmation. 8.3. Netting of Payments.  "Multiple Transaction Netting" will apply for the purposes of Section 2(c)

9.1. Appointment of Agent or Broker.   In delivering, buying, buying, selling, or receiving delivery of, FLPR  

Assets in respect of any  Murabaha  Sale entered into pursuant to the terms of this DFT Terms Agreement, a party may appoint an Agent or Broker in order to effect such delivery, purchase or sale, or to receive such delivery, on its behalf. 10  9.2. Agent.  "Agent" means, in in respect of any Murabaha Sale entered into pursuant to the terms of this

DFT Terms Agreement, the person (if any) acting as agent of the Seller or Buyer, as the case may be, 8

  It is envisaged that the Related D DFT FT Terms confirmation specified in this DFT Terms confirmation will be the DFT Terms confirmation for the other leg of the Profit Rate Swap transaction (e.g. the fixed profit rate leg). This allows the fixed profit rate and floating profit rate legs of a Profit Rate Swap to be "linked" in order to ensure clarity as to which are the component legs of a particular Profit Rate Swap, but nevertheless enabling the legs to be documented separately in order to comply with the Shari'ah preference for the Wa'ads set out in the DFT Terms confirmations for each leg of the Profit Rate Swap to remain separate and distinct from each other.

9

  Note that in oorder rder to avoid a Profit Rate Swap constituting Bai Al Inah (sale and buy-back agreement), the asset purchased from the Broker by the Seller should not then be sold to that same Broker by the Buyer. Market participants will be aware of the differences of opinion amongst scholars on the permissibility of  Bai Al Inah (sale and buy-back agreement).

10

  An Agent or Broker should be appointed by a party only if that has been approved by the relevant party's Shari'ah board or other appropriate Shari'ah approval procedure has been effected (in particular, where one party to the Agreement is to be appointed as Agent or Broker for the other party to the Agreement). Note that any conflict of interest issues arising where one party is appointed as Agent or Broker for the counterparty will need to be addressed.

specified as such in this DFT Terms confirmation. One party to this DFT Terms Agreement may appoint the other party to this DFT Terms Agreement or any third party as its Agent for such purpose. 9.3. Broker.  "Broker" means, in respect of any Murabaha Sale entered into pursuant to the terms of

this DFT Terms Agreement, the person (if any) acting as a broker for the Seller or Buyer, as the case may be, as specified in this DFT Terms confirmation.
