The Base Prospectuses of Bayerische Landesbank for issues targeting the markets in German-speaking countries which have been approved since 1 July 2012 are drawn up in accordance with the prospectus law applicable since 1 July 2012 with regards to contents and format.
In the period between 1 July 2012 and 31 July 2013 those Base Prospectuses of Bayerische Landesbank were drawn up as so-called "tripartite base prospectuses". Each such tripartite Base Prospectus consists of three separate documents: a Summary Note, a Securities Note and the Registration Document containing the information about Bayerische Landesbank.
Due to a change in the administrative practices by the relevant supervisory authorities, the respective Base Prospectuses of Bayerische Landesbank approved since 1 August 2013 consist of a document which contains the legally prescribed summary and description of the notes and in which the information about Bayerische Landesbank contained in a separate Registration Document is incorporated by reference. In accordance with legal terminology, base prospectuses drawn up in such manner are generally also referred to as "single-document base prospectus".
