Automatic Exercise Provisions
At Exercise Time, options which are “in the money”, with respect to the weighted average of the Reference Price A prices, will exercise automatically into twelve Underlying Futures Contracts, one for each contract month in the Contract period, with a contract price equal to the Strike Price. The weighted average shall be determined by multiplying the Specified Price for each Delivery Date, as specified in Reference Price A, by its Weighting Factor to determine the weighted prices, and then dividing that sum by the sum of the Weighting Factors. For purposes of this Exchange Option, the “Weighting Factor” shall mean a number equal to the number of Pricing Days in the Contract Period of the Underlying Futures Contract. Each Contract Period in the basket will have its own Weighting Factor. If the option is “out of the money”, then it expires automatically
