NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 01, 2016) - U.S. Bank Trust National Association (NYSE: USB), as Trustee, under the Standard Terms for Trust Agreements dated as of June 19, 2001, between Bear Stearns Depositor Inc., as Depositor, and U.S. Bank Trust National Association, as Trustee, as supplemented by the Series Supplement for the Trust Certificates (TRUCs) Series 2001-2 dated as of July 10, 2001 (the "Trust Agreement") in respect of the Trust Certificates (TRUCs) Series 2001-2 Trust (the "Trust") (NYSE: TZF), received notice that certain Call Warrants holders have exercised their right to purchase the remaining $500,000 principal amount of the Underlying Securities of the Trust on March 28, 2016 (the "Call Date").

THE EXERCISE OF THE CALL WARRANTS IS CONDITIONAL UPON RECEIPT BY THE TRUSTEE OF THE CALL PRICE WITH RESPECT TO SUCH EXERCISE ON THE CALL DATE. THERE CAN BE NO ASSURANCE THAT THE CALL WARRANTS WILL IN FACT BE EXERCISED ON MARCH 28, 2016.
