11.3 in all its glory

Section 11.3. Adjustments to Certain Share Transactions and Share Basket Transactions in European Currencies. In respect of a Share Transaction or Share Basket Transaction relating to Shares originally quoted, listed and/or dealt as of the Trade Date in a currency of a member state of the European Union that has not adopted the single currency in accordance with the EC Treaty, if such Shares are at any time after the Trade Date quoted, listed and/or dealt exclusively in euro on the relevant Exchange or, where no Exchange is specified, the principal market on which those Shares are traded, then the Calculation Agent will adjust any one or more of the Strike Price, the Forward Price, the Forward Floor Price, the Forward Cap Price, the Knock-in Price, the Knock-out Price, the Settlement Price, the Initial Price, the Final Price and any other variable relevant to the terms of the Transaction as the Calculation Agent determines appropriate to preserve the economic terms of the Transaction. The Calculation Agent will make any conversion necessary for purposes of any such adjustment as of the Valuation Time at an appropriate mid-market spot rate of exchange determined by the Calculation Agent prevailing as of the Valuation Time. No adjustments under this Section 11.3 will affect the currency denomination of any payment obligation arising out of the Transaction.

Well, it all seemed important at the time, but the Euro is now a thing, there can’t be too many equity derivative transactions that are still in flight nineteen years later, so you won’t spend a lot of time parsing this clause until another nation adopts the euro as its currency. Montenegro uses it anyway, and it seems more likely countries will leave rather than join in the current febrile environment, so we'll leave this one for now.
