2 This document (the "Base Prospectus") constitutes a base prospectus in respect of the Programme (as defined below). Any Securities (as defined below) issued on or after the date of this Base Prospectus are issued subject to the provisions herein. This Base Prospectus constitutes three base prospectuses for the purposes of Article 5.4 of Directive 2003/71 (the "Prospectus Directive"): (1) a base prospectus relating to the issuance of Notes (as defined below) and Certificates (as defined below) under the Programme by Merrill Lynch S.A. ("MLSA"), (2) a base prospectus relating to the issuance of Certificates and Warrants (as defined below) under the Programme by Merrill Lynch International & Co. C.V. ("MLICo.") and (3) a base prospectus relating to the issuance of Notes (as defined below) under the Programme by Bank of America Corporation ("BAC," and together with MLSA and MLICo., the "Issuers" and each, an "Issuer"). The payment of all amounts payable and the delivery of non-cash consideration deliverable in respect of the Securities issued by MLSA and MLICo. will be unconditionally and irrevocably guaranteed (the "Guarantee") by BAC (in such capacity, the "Guarantor"), the ultimate parent company of MLSA and MLICo. The Securities will be issued on a continuing basis to Merrill Lynch International ("MLI") 1 and any additional dealer appointed under the Programme from time to time (each, a "Dealer" and together, the "Dealers"). Under the terms of the Structured Securities Programme (the "Programme"), BAC may from time to time issue notes (the "Notes"), MLSA may from time to time issue Notes or certificates (the "Certificates") and MLICo. may from time to time issue Certificates and warrants (the "Warrants"), having terms as may be agreed by the relevant Issuer and the relevant Dealer(s). Certificates and Warrants are together referred to as "W&C Securities", and W&C Securities and Notes are together referred to as "Securities". Securities of any kind may be issued including but not limited to Securities relating to a specified index or a basket of indices ("Index Linked Securities"), a specified share or a basket of shares ("Share Linked Securities"), a specified global depositary receipt ("GDR") or American depositary receipt ("ADR") or basket of GDRs and/or ADRs ("GDR/ADR Linked Securities"), a specified currency or a basket of currencies ("FX Linked Securities"), a specified commodity or commodity index or a basket of commodities and/or commodity indices ("Commodity Linked Securities"), a specified fund or basket of funds ("Fund Linked Securities"), a specified inflation index or a basket of inflation indices ("Inflation Linked Securities") or any combination of the foregoing (and each such underlying asset or basis of reference, a "Reference Item"). In relation to any issue of Securities the respective Issuer will determine and disclose the legally binding terms and conditions of the Securities in the final terms (the "Final Terms"). The applicable Final Terms should be read in conjunction with this Base Prospectus. The Securities will rank equally with all other unsubordinated and unsecured obligations of the respective Issuer. This Base Prospectus has been approved by the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (the "CSSF"), which is the competent authority for the purpose of the Prospectus Directive and relevant implementing measures in Luxembourg, for the purpose of giving information with regard to the issue of Securities by the Issuers under the Programme during the period of 12 months from the date of this Base Prospectus. The Issuers have requested CSSF to provide the Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht ("BaFin") in Germany, the Finanzmarktaufsicht ("FMA") in Austria and the Financial Services Authority ("FSA") in the United Kingdom and may request CSSF to provide other competent authorities in other host member states within the European Economic Area with certificates of approval attesting that this Base Prospectus has been drawn up in accordance with the Prospectus Directive. The CSSF assumes no responsibility as to the economic and financial soundness of the transactions and the quality and the solvency of the Issuers. This document contains the binding English version of the Base Prospectus, including a German language translation of selected parts of the Base Prospectus. In relation to the issuance of a particular series of Securities, the Final Terms will stipulate whether the German language version or the English language version of the Conditions (as defined below) of the issuance will be binding. The Final Terms for each tranche of the Securities ("Tranche of the Securities" or "Tranche") will be delivered to CSSF in its capacity as competent authority for the purpose of the Prospectus Directive on or before the issue date of the Securities. References herein to the "Conditions" are to the terms and conditions of the 1 Please note that the marketing name of MLI is BofA MERRILL LYNCH as set out on the cover page. 2

Application has been made to the Luxembourg Stock Exchange for the Securities to be admitted to trading on the regulated market of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange and to be listed on the Official List of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. Application has also been made to the Luxembourg Stock Exchange for Securities issued under the Programme to be admitted to trading on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange's alternative market Euro MTF and to be admitted to the Official List of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. Application may, in the future, be made to list Securities on any other regulated market of any stock exchange in a Member State within the European Economic Area (in particular on the London Stock Exchange), or to trade the Securities on the Open Market (Freiverkehr) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Scoach) and/or on the regulated unofficial market (Freiverkehr) of the Stuttgart Stock Exchange (EUWAX). Securities may not be listed or traded at all, in each case as specified in the applicable Final Terms. Each Tranche of Notes ("Tranche of Notes") will be represented by a permanent global note in bearer form ("Global Note"). The Global Note will be delivered on or prior to the issue date of the relevant Tranche of Notes to Clearstream Banking AG, Frankfurt am Main ("Clearstream Frankfurt") or any other agreed-upon clearing system. Interests in the Global Note will not be exchangeable for definitive Notes. See further described in "Form of the Securities Form of the Notes". Each Tranche of Certificates ("Tranche of Certificates") will be represented by a permanent global certificate in bearer form ("Global Certificate"). The Global Certificate will be delivered on or prior to the issue date of the relevant Tranche of Certificates to Clearstream Frankfurt or any other agreed-upon clearing system.

Each Tranche of Warrants ("Tranche of Warrants") will be represented by a permanent global warrant in bearer form ("Global Warrant"). The Global Warrant will be delivered on or prior to the issue date of the relevant Tranche of Warrants to Clearstream Frankfurt or any other agreed-upon clearing system. Interests in the Global Warrant will not be exchangeable for definitive Warrants. See further described in "Form of the Securities Form of the Warrants". For payments by Bank of America Corporation in respect of a Security, which will be treated as in registered form for United States federal income tax purposes, in order to avoid U.S. withholding taxes, the beneficial owner of the Security is required to furnish the U.S. Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") Form W-8BEN on which the beneficial owner certifies under penalties of perjury that it is not a United States person. THE SECURITIES ARE SUBJECT TO INVESTMENT RISKS, INCLUDING POSSIBLE LOSS OF THE PRINCIPAL AMOUNT INVESTED OR PREMIUM PAID. EACH PROSPECTIVE INVESTOR IN THE SECURITIES SHOULD CONSIDER CAREFULLY WHETHER THE SECURITIES ARE A SUITABLE INVESTMENT IN THE LIGHT OF SUCH PROSPECTIVE INVESTOR'S INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES, FINANCIAL CAPABILITIES, AND EXPERTISE. PROSPECTIVE INVESTORS IN THE SECURITIES SHOULD CONSULT THEIR OWN BUSINESS, FINANCIAL, INVESTMENT, LEGAL, ACCOUNTING, REGULATORY, TAX, AND OTHER PROFESSIONAL ADVISORS TO ASSIST THEM IN DETERMINING THE SUITABILITY OF THE SECURITIES FOR THEM AS AN INVESTMENT. SEE "RISK FACTORS" AS CONTAINED IN THIS BASE PROSPECTUS. Neither the Securities nor the Guarantee have been, and neither will be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or any U.S. state securities laws, and, the Securities may not be offered, sold, transferred, pledged, delivered, exercised or redeemed, directly or indirectly, at any time within the United States of America, its territories, its possessions and other areas subject to its jurisdiction (the "United States") or to, or for the benefit of, a United States Person (as defined herein). The Securities may not be legally or beneficially owned at any time by any United States Person. Trading in the Securities has not been approved by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (the "CFTC") under the U.S. Commodity 3

4 Exchange Act, as amended (the "CEA").The Securities will be in bearer form and the Notes and Certificates will be subject to United States tax law requirements. Unless otherwise indicated, as used in this Base Prospectus, "United States Person" means a person which is a "U.S. person" as defined by Regulation S under the Securities Act or a "United States person" as defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code") and in U.S. Treasury regulations. THE SECURITIES ARE UNSECURED AND ARE NOT AND WILL NOT BE SAVINGS ACCOUNTS, DEPOSITS, OBLIGATIONS OF, OR OTHERWISE GUARANTEED BY BANK OF AMERICA, N.A. OR ANY OTHER BANK. THE SECURITIES DO NOT EVIDENCE DEPOSITS OF ANY BANK AND ARE NOT INSURED BY THE U.S. FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION (THE "FDIC"), THE GERMAN DEPOSIT PROTECTION FUND OF THE ASSOCIATION OF GERMAN BANKS (EINLAGENSICHERUNGSFONDS DES BUNDESVERBANDS DEUTSCHER BANKEN), THE STATUTORY COMPENSATION SCHEME OF GERMAN BANKS (ENTSCHÄDIGUNGSEINRICHTUNG DEUTSCHER BANKEN GMBH), A COMPARABLE INSTITUTION IN AUSTRIA OR ANY OTHER INSURER OR GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY OR INSTRUMENTALITY. The credit ratings of BAC referred to in this Base Prospectus have been issued by Moody's Investors Service, Inc. ("Moody's"), Standard and Poor's Financial Services LLC ("S&P"), and Fitch, Inc. ("Fitch"), none of which is established in the European Union. Credit ratings and outlooks are effective as of the date of this Base Prospectus. However, entities belonging to the same group of Moody's, S&P and Fitch respectively which have been established in the European Union may have applied for registration under Regulation (EC) No. 1060/2009 and may have disclosed an intention to endorse the ratings of Moody's, S&P and Fitch respectively. A notification of the corresponding registration decision has not yet been provided by the relevant competent authority. Credit ratings and outlooks may be adjusted over time, and so there is no assurance that these credit ratings and outlooks will be effective after the date of this Base Prospectus. 4

5 Important Notices IMPORTANT NOTICES This Base Prospectus must be read in conjunction with all documents deemed to be incorporated by reference (see "Incorporation by Reference") and shall be construed accordingly. This Base Prospectus shall be read and construed on the basis that such documents are so incorporated and form part of this Base Prospectus. This Base Prospectus is a base prospectus for the purposes of Article 5.4 of the Directive 2003/71/EC (the "Prospectus Directive"). No person has been authorized to give any information or to make any representation not contained or incorporated by reference in this Base Prospectus and, if given or made, such information or representation must not be relied upon as having been authorized by any Issuer, the Guarantor, or any Dealer. This Base Prospectus does not relate to any securities other than the Securities or constitute an offer to any person in any jurisdiction where such offer would be unlawful. Neither the delivery of this Base Prospectus nor the offer, sale, or delivery of any Securities shall imply in any circumstance that there has been no material adverse change or any event reasonably likely to involve any material adverse change, in the condition (financial or otherwise) of any Issuer or the Guarantor or any of their respective subsidiaries since the date hereof. Apart from the Issuers, no other party has separately verified the information contained herein. Accordingly, no representation, warranty, or undertaking, express or implied, is made and no responsibility is accepted by the Dealer(s) as to the accuracy or completeness of the information contained in this Base Prospectus or any other information provided by any Issuer or the Guarantor. The Dealer(s) do not accept any liability in relation to the information contained in this Base Prospectus or any other information provided by any Issuer or the Guarantor in connection with the Programme. The applicable Final Terms will specify the nature of the responsibility taken by the relevant Issuer and the Guarantor for the information relating to any underlying equity security, index, currency exchange rate, commodity, commodity index, fund or other asset(s) (each, a "Reference Item") (if applicable) to which the relevant Securities relate and which is contained in such Final Terms. However, unless otherwise expressly stated in the applicable Final Terms, any information contained therein relating to a Reference Item(s) will only consist of extracts from, or summaries of, information contained in financial and other information released publicly by the issuer, owner, or sponsor, as the case may be, of such Reference Item(s) or which is otherwise publicly available. The relevant Issuer will, unless otherwise expressly stated in the applicable Final Terms, each accept responsibility for accurately reproducing such extracts or summaries (insofar as it is applicable), but neither the relevant Issuer nor the Guarantor, as the case may be, will accept any further or other responsibility (express or implied) in respect of such information. Unless otherwise stated in the applicable Final Terms, the Issuers and the Guarantor do not intend to provide post-issuance information in relation to the Reference Item(s). In making an investment decision with respect to any Securities, an investor should, where relevant, give consideration to the Reference Item(s) relating to such Securities, and, accordingly, an investor should conduct an independent investigation of the relevant Reference Item(s) and the risks related to an investment in such Securities. In such investigation, an investor should (i) obtain copies of all the documents that are publicly available to the potential and actual investors in such Reference Item(s) and review all such documents carefully, (ii) ask questions of the respective managements of the issuers, owners, guarantors, or sponsors of such Reference Item(s) in respect of such documentation and in respect of such other matters as such an investor deems necessary or appropriate to making an informed investment decision with respect to such Reference Item(s), (iii) request from the issuers, owners, guarantors, or sponsors of the Reference Item(s) all additional information considered by such an investor to be necessary or appropriate to verify the accuracy of, or to supplement the information contained in, the applicable Final Terms or in the documents otherwise obtained by such an investor, (iv) consult such investor's own legal counsel and business, investment, financial, accounting, regulatory, tax, and other professional advisors to determine the consequences of the investment in such Securities, and (v) not rely on the relevant Issuer, the Guarantor, as the case may be, any Dealer(s), or any of their affiliates in connection with such investor's investigation of the accuracy of such information or such investor's investment decision. 5

6 Important Notices An investment in Securities is subject to a very high degree of complex risks which may arise without warning, may at times be volatile and losses may occur quickly and in unanticipated magnitude. The Securities are extremely speculative and investors bear the risk of losing all of their investment. No investor should acquire any Securities unless (i) that person understands the nature of the relevant transaction and the extent of the exposure to potential loss, (ii) that person has a valid business purpose for acquiring such Securities, and (iii) any investment in such Securities is consistent with that person's overall investment strategy. Each prospective investor should consider carefully whether the Securities it considers acquiring are suitable for it in the light of such prospective investor's investment objectives, financial capabilities and expertise. See "Risk Factors" as contained in this Base Prospectus. The price and amount of the Securities to be issued under the Programme will be determined by the relevant Issuer and the relevant Dealer(s) at the time of issue in accordance with prevailing market conditions. Neither this Base Prospectus nor any other information supplied in connection with the Programme is intended to provide the basis of any credit or other evaluation, and any recipient of this Base Prospectus should not consider such receipt to be a recommendation to purchase any Securities. Each investor contemplating purchasing any Securities should make its own independent investigation of the financial condition and affairs of the relevant Issuer and the Guarantor, and its own appraisal of the creditworthiness of the relevant Issuer and the Guarantor. None of the Dealers undertakes to review the financial condition or affairs of the Issuers or the Guarantor during the life of the arrangements contemplated by this Base Prospectus or to advise any investor or potential investor in the Securities of any information coming to its attention. BAC is not a credit institution within the meaning of the German Banking Act (Kreditwesengesetz). The Securities and the Guarantee have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or approved or disapproved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") or any other securities commission or other regulatory authority in the United States, nor have the foregoing authorities reviewed or passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of this Base Prospectus. The Securities and the Guarantee have not been approved by the CFTC under the CEA. Except as provided herein, the Securities may not be legally or beneficially owned at any time by any United States Person. Upon redemption or exercise or settlement, a Holder of Securities may be required to make a certification that it is not a United States Person. This Base Prospectus does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any Securities in any jurisdiction to any person to whom it is unlawful to make such offer or solicitation to such jurisdiction. The distribution of this Base Prospectus and the offer of Securities may be restricted by law in certain jurisdictions. None of the Issuers, the Guarantor, or any Dealer(s) represents that this Base Prospectus may be lawfully distributed, or that any Securities may be lawfully offered, in compliance with any applicable registration or other requirements in any such jurisdiction, or pursuant to an exemption available thereunder, or assumes any responsibility for facilitating any such distribution or offering. In particular, no action has been taken by the Issuers, the Guarantor, or any Dealer(s) which would permit a public offering of any Securities outside the European Economic Area or distribution of this Base Prospectus in any jurisdiction where action for that purpose is required. Accordingly, no Securities may be offered or sold, directly or indirectly, and neither this Base Prospectus nor any advertisement or other offering material may be distributed or published in any jurisdiction, except under circumstances that will result in compliance with any applicable laws and regulations and the Dealer(s) have represented that all offers and sales by them will be made on the same terms. Persons into whose possession this Base Prospectus or any Securities come must inform themselves about, and observe, any such restrictions. In particular, there are restrictions on the distribution of this Base Prospectus and the offer or sale of Securities in the United States, the European Economic Area, and certain other jurisdictions. See "Subscription and Sale" as contained in this Base Prospectus. Because the Calculation Agent can be a subsidiary company or affiliate of the relevant Issuer or the Guarantor, there can be conflicts of interest between the Calculation Agent and a bearer of Index Linked Securities, Share Linked Securities, GDR/ADR Linked Securities, Commodity Linked Securities, Fund Linked Securities, FX Linked Securities, Inflation Linked Securities, Hybrid Securities, and Other Reference Item Linked Securities, including determinations and decisions the Calculation Agent has to make. 6

7 Important Notices In connection with the issue of any Tranche of Notes, the Dealer or Dealers (if any) named as the stabilizing manager(s) (or persons acting on behalf of any Stabilizing Manager(s)) in the applicable Final Terms (the "Stabilizing Manager(s)") may over allot Notes (provided that, in the case of any Tranche of Notes to be listed on the Luxembourg and/or the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, the aggregate principal amount of Notes allotted does not exceed 105 per cent. of the aggregate principal amount of the relevant Tranche) or effect transactions with a view to supporting the market price of the Notes at a level higher than that which might otherwise prevail. However, there is no assurance that the Stabilizing Manager(s) (or persons acting on behalf of a Stabilizing Manager) will undertake stabilization action. Any stabilization action may begin on or after the date on which adequate public disclosure of the terms of the offer of the relevant Tranche of Notes is made and, if begun, may be ended at any time, but it must end no later than the earlier of 30 calendar days after the issue date of the relevant Tranche of Notes and 60 calendar days after the date of the allotment of the relevant Tranche of Notes.
