announced today that, except for the instruments identified below, the U.S. law-governed U.S. dollar LIBOR-linked preferred stock (and related depositary shares) and debt securities issued by Morgan Stanley and Morgan Stanley Finance LLC, and certificates of deposit issued by Morgan Stanley Bank, N.A., will transition from using U.S. dollar LIBOR as a benchmark to the CME Term SOFR Reference Rate published for the tenor corresponding to the relevant U.S. dollar LIBOR rate plus a tenor spread adjustment (the “Replacement Rate”)(i) by operation of law, pursuant to the Adjustable Interest Rate (LIBOR) Act, or (ii) pursuant to the terms of such instruments. The replacement of U.S. dollar LIBOR with the Replacement Rate will be effective for determinations that are made after June 30, 2023 (the “Cessation Date”), when the relevant U.S. dollar LIBOR settings are expected to either cease publication or no longer be representative but will not affect any determinations made on or prior to the Cessation Date.
The tenor spread adjustment for each applicable U.S. dollar LIBOR tenor is listed below:
|Tenor||Tenor Spread Adjustment|
