         Non Baltic securities settlement in Issuer CSD (CBL)

This section describes operations performed by the CSD and CSD participants when, as a result
of a transfer of financial instruments registered with Clearstream Banking Luxembourg
(hereinafter – CBL) are credited to or debited from the CSD omnibus account with CBL. Such
instructions are mediated and therefore reflected in the CSD system.
CSD has opened multiple accounts in CBL for accounting financial instruments that are registered
with CBL and are owned by CSD’s participants or by clients of CSD participants.
If CBL, in accordance with its rules, is obliged to open a separate financial instruments account
for holding of specific financial instruments or for particular CSD participant’s clients, the CSD
notifies the CSD participant accordingly. The CSD participant is obliged to submit to the CSD all
the information necessary for opening the segregated account with CBL within five (5) business
days from reception of the CSD notice. When the segregated account is opened the CSD will
transmit account details to the CSD participant.



1
  After T2S EOD, CSD reconciles corporate actions related balances. After successful reconciliation, the CSD will send
corporate actions related settlement instructions to T2S, which will be processed during T2S NTS. Regular settlement
instructions that are received from CSD participants are passed to T2S immediately.




12
OPERATING MANUAL                              v.1.14 March, 2019

For each account opened with CBL, a cash account is linked to enable cash settlement.
All financial instruments that are issued in CBL defined core markets2 and settle in CBL accounting
and settlement system are eligible for settlement. If a CSD participant in its own name or on
behalf of its client wants to hold financial instruments issued in the CBL defined specific markets3,
then the CSD participant notifies the CSD about that, by sending to the CSD official e-mail notice
setting out what financial instruments the CSD participant intends to transfer, at least three (3)
business days before the CSD’s account within CBL is credited. The CSD will notify the CSD
participant about the permission or prohibition within three 3 (three) days from the CSD
participants notification.
The CSD provides free of payment (hereinafter – FOP) and delivery versus payment (hereinafter
– DVP) gross settlement for the financial instruments registered with CBL. Instructions for filling
out settlement instruction that is sent to CBL is provided in ANNEX 5 – Settlement instructions
related to the CBL.
Transfers between the CSD and CBL may be executed between 08:00 and 17:00 on all days that
are business days for both the CSD and CBL, however, taking into account that on some occasions
the transaction may be entered in the books on a date that is a business day for CBL but not for
the CSD.
Where, by 17:00 on the settlement day (hereinafter – S day) the CSD has failed to receive from
CBL a confirmation for executing a FOP or DVP settlement, the instruction is rolled over to the
next settlement day and further on until the CSD has received a confirmation from CBL or until
the settlement instruction is cancelled.
Where the date for book entry specified in the CBL confirmation is not a business day for the CSD,
the CSD participant receives a confirmation from the CSD about the settlement on the first
business day following the date specified by CBL in the confirmation.
The CSD system, upon a receiving a settlement instruction from the CSD participant, performs
technical validation of the settlement instruction and also checks whether there is sufficient

CBL may reject a settlement instruction with incorrect counterpart information. When receiving
a CBL rejection to execute a settlement instruction, the CSD system cancels the CSD participant’s
settlement instruction.
Settlement instructions are cancelled according to the CBL Rules available on CBL website
www.clearstream.com.
To cancel a settlement instruction that has been submitted to the CSD, a CSD participant sends
the CSD a cancellation instruction. Upon receiving a cancellation message from a CSD participant,
the CSD does the following:
•         If the instruction submitted by the CSD participant to the CSD has not yet been forwarded
          to CBL, the CSD participant can cancel it and CSD approves cancelation accordingly;
•         If the instruction submitted by the CSD participant to the CSD has already been forwarded
          to CBL, the CSD system sends a cancellation message to CBL provided that settlement of
          the instruction has not yet been initiated in CBL accounting and settlement system.
Upon receiving a confirmation from CBL about the cancellation, the CSD system cancels the
instruction submitted by the CSD participant.
Data exchange between the CSD and CBL is performed via SWIFT or by using CreationOnline
solution provided by CBL.
In accordance with FATCA 4, CBL has registered the CSD as non-qualified intermediary and for
execution of corporate actions for those financial instruments held in the CSD’s accounts with
CBL, CBL in respect of the CSD is acting as the tax withholding agent. Based on the
aforementioned, the CSD participants shall disclose to the CSD all information that the CSD is
obliged to submit to CBL for execution of financial instruments corporate actions.

2.4.1 Central bank money settlement

2.4.1.1 Baltic non T2S instruments
Participants will have technical liquidity mirror account (CSA) opened in the CSD system for
central bank money settlement of Baltic non T2S instruments. Such technical liquidity mirror
account will be only used for settlement of the Lithuanian Government Savings notes in
accordance with the Chapter IV of the CSD Rulebook.
In case of distribution and early redemption of the Lithuanian Government Savings notes one of
the counterparts is always the CSD in the role of an Issuer Agent.

OPERATING MANUAL                         v.1.14 March, 2019

Cash settlement of the Lithuanian Government Savings notes is carried out according to the
Lithuanian statutory calendar in the CSD system.
In the event of Lithuanian Savings notes distribution, a cash agent servicing a CSD participant has
to transfer required cash amount to the Nasdaq CSD Lithuanian branch T2 account (as described
in ANNEX 3 – Cash transfer instruction to settle LT savings notes), referencing the cash delivering
cash agent’s dedicated CSA opened in the CSD system, to ensure timely settlement on the
intended settlement day. After the liquidity is received in the CSD T2 account, the CSD will mirror
it in the CSA in the CSD system.
In case of Lithuanian Savings notes early redemption, the issuer will transfer the required
liquidity before 09:00 to the Nasdaq CSD Lithuanian branch SEPA MMS account, from where the
cash is transferred to the Nasdaq CSD Lithuanian branch T2 account. The settlement will start as
soon as the cash is received.
Settlement of cash legs is reflected in the CSD system in the CSAs that belong to the cash agents
involved in Lithuanian Savings notes settlement.
All the remaining cash balances are automatically swept out from the Nasdaq CSD Lithuanian
branch T2 account to the cash agent’s T2 account according to the following time schedule:
•      The first automated cash sweep is scheduled at 11:00;
•      The second automated cash sweep is scheduled at 17:00.
It is also possible to request ad hoc liquidity return from a CSA during the day. Liquidity return
transactions are reflected in the cash agent’s CSAs in the CSD system.
Cut-off time for cash agents to transfer liquidity to the Nasdaq CSD Lithuanian branch T2 account
is 16:00.
Cut-off time for the issuer to transfer liquidity to the Nasdaq CSD Lithuanian branch SEPA-MMS
account is 09:00.

2.4.1.2 Baltic T2S instruments
Cash settlement of Baltic T2S eligible instruments takes place in DCAs in T2S. The T2S DCAs can
be opened by any National Central Bank participating in T2S and are used for the settlement of
cash transactions arising in T2S, such as cash leg settlement of settlement instructions, corporate
actions etc.
Payment Banks are responsible for liquidity management in T2S. Therefore, the Payment Banks
are responsible for ensuring sufficient liquidity in the DCA by the start of T2S night time
settlement at 21:00 and throughout the settlement day.
Just before the EOD period, at 18:45, all remaining cash in the DCAs is automatically swept to the
linked main PM account in T2.
Issuers’ deadline for transferring corporate action related cash payments to the Nasdaq CSD
Lithuanian branch T2 account is no later than 12:00 one business day before the payment date

•      Receiver: Nasdaq CSD Lithuanian branch;
•      BIC: CSDLLT22577;
•      IBAN: LT119057700000000001.
If issuer (or its agent) is handling the cash distribution outside the Nasdaq CSD, Nasdaq CSD will
not follow the CA standards.
2.4.2 Commercial bank money settlement
Besides the EUR currency, the CSD system supports settlement in USD via the linked CSDs. DVP
settlement in USD is also available for Baltic instruments in the CSD. Cash leg for T2S eligible Baltic
securities in non-T2S currency is settled outside T2S via an External Cash Account opened in the
name of the CSD in the commercial bank. For such purpose, the CSD will open technical liquidity
mirror account (CSA) for each participant in the CSD system (as described in section 3.8) where
sub-bookkeeping records of cash transfers are kept.
On the ISD as soon as possible but no later than 12:00, the buyer’s Cash Agent, Issuer’s Paying
Agent or the Issuer will transfer the required liquidity to the CSD External Cash Account for USD
cash leg settlement. If no cash is received in CSD External Cash Account for USD by the deadline,
instructions will be recycled to the next settlement day (as described in section 3.2.9).
It is important to note that the DVP settlement of T2S eligible Baltic instruments in foreign
currency, which is accepted as settlement currency in the CSD, is commenced on the gross basis
separately for each DVP. The settlement amount is transferred from the CSD’s external cash
account in the commercial bank to the seller’s CSD participant’s cash agent’s external cash
account for the respective currency.

3.1.2 Securities account modification
The instruction for modifying the securities account data is submitted through the CSD system
by opening the local menu option “Edit” with right-click on the respective securities account
found through menu option Holder -> Account Browse. The opened data input form is completed
based on the same principles as for the table given for “Securities account opening”.
Note! Only modification of T2S Hold attribute in CSD system triggers securities account
modification in T2S. Only limited set of attributes can be amended. It is prohibited to change the
following details in the information entered in the CSD system in connection with a securities
account:
•      Type of the securities account;
•      Holder of the securities account (i.e. replacing current holder of the securities account by
       another person);
•      Details of joint owners registered in a Joint Owner Account (joint owners or co-owners,
       respectively).
If an account operator is notified of changes in the details of joint owners registered in a Joint
Owner Account (joint owners or co-owners), the account operator opens a new Joint Owner
Account and registers the new joint owners accordingly. Securities that are the object of joint
ownership are transferred in the new Joint Owner Account.
If securities registered in a Joint Owner Account no longer constitute the object of joint
ownership, such securities are transferred to the securities account opened in the names of the
exclusive owners of the securities.
An account operator will submit settlement instructions to perform actions described above to
the CSD based on a transfer order received from the joint owners or co-owner having the right
of disposal in respect of the Joint Owner Account. The account operator will verify the person’s
right of disposal on the basis of the information which has been provided by the securities
account holder and which has been registered in the Joint Owner Account.

3.1.2.1 Securities account linking with DCA
Securities accounts that are related to DVP settlement in T2S must have at least one default DCA
link defined in T2S. However, there can be more than one DCA link per securities account in T2S,
meaning that if a participant has multiple DCA accounts, those can be linked as alternative DCAs
to the securities account.
The main rule is that CSD participants inform the CSD about the default DCA to be used to settle
securities against cash in T2S. Such default DCA is set in the CSD system on participant level for
24
OPERATING MANUAL                         v.1.14 March, 2019

each account operator. Whenever an account operator opens a new securities account, the CSD
links the default DCA to this new securities account in T2S.

3.1.2.2 Create securities account link with DCA
If the account operator wants to assign alternative DCA to the securities account, it is possible to
add DCA link after securities account opening is finalized in T2S. This action is submitted through
the CSD system by finding to respective securities account through menu option Holder ->
Account Browse and navigating to the “Liquidity A/c Links” tab. By using right-click “Insert”
operation following Create Liquidity Account Link window is opened and has to be filled in with
the following details:

                        the DCA.

                        settlement.

 Collateralization      earmarked as collateral and held on the securities account, for
                        auto-collateralization operations on the linked participant
                        DCA.
 T2S Settlement         Specifies whether the DCA is used for the settlement of the O
                        cash leg of a settlement instruction.
If the account operator has several DCAs linked to a single securities account in T2S, T2S will use
the default DCA of that securities account during cash settlement. Should T2S use other than the
default DCA, a CSD participant is required to specify the respective DCA in the settlement
instruction.

3.1.2.3 Remove securities account link with DCA
If the account operator wants to un-link (alternative) DCA from the securities account, it is
possible to remove securities account link with DCA. This action is submitted through the CSD
system by finding to respective securities account through menu option Holder -> Account
Browse and navigating to the “Liquidity A/c Links” tab. By using right-click “Cancel” operation
Account operator has to specify the “Valid to Date”, DCA link with securities account is removed
from that date and DCA cannot be used for cash leg settlement.

3.1.3 Securities account closing
The instruction for closing a securities account is submitted through CSD system by opening the
local menu option “Close T2S Account” with right-click on the respective securities account found
through menu option Holder -> Account Browse. Note! Securities account closing in CSD system
triggers also securities account closing in T2S. It is possible to specify securities account closing
date, it should be noted that the closing date must be greater than the opening date.
It is not possible to close a securities account if securities balance of the account is greater than
zero; it means that securities account has securities registered in it, or is used in active settlement
instructions. In addition, it is not possible to close securities account if there are any active
securities account DCA links, such links have to be removed beforehand.
If already closed securities account receives income securities based on an application from the
Issuer because of a corporate action, the CSD operator will re-open the account that allows
transfer of income securities into the account.
