BNP Paribas Enters Into License Agreement With Richard Bernstein Advisors LLC 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/07/13 --  BNP Paribas is pleased
to announce it has agreed to enter into a license agreement with
Richard Bernstein Advisors LLC (RBA) to utilize RBA's intellectual
property, specifically the Richard Bernstein Advisors American
Industrial Renaissance(SM) mark to offer select market-linked
Certificates of Deposit and Market Linked Notes. 
Serge Troyanovsky, Managing Director and Head of Structured Products
Retail Distribution for BNP Paribas Securities Corp. commented, "We
are pleased to have entered into this license agreement with RBA and
believe that the Richard Bernstein Advisors American Industrial
Renaissance(SM) concept will offer value to our clients."  
"We think the American Industrial Renaissance is one of the best and
least accepted growth stories in the world today," stated Richard
Bernstein, CEO of RBA. "Small and mid-cap domestically-focused U.S.
manufacturing and industrial companies are clearly starting to gain
market share. Yet, there are very few ways for investors to actively
invest in this exciting theme." 
BNP Paribas plans to launch its initial product in September using
RBA's mark Richard Bernstein Advisors American Industrial
Renaissance(SM). Subsequent to the product launch additional
information will be available at
