  2. defining the type of issued bonds
    registered bonds, dematerialized, with a pre-emptive right to take up series H shares issued pursuant to the following resolutions passed by Bank Zachodni WBK General Meeting on 4 April 2006: no. 31 re. issue of bonds with pre-emptive rights, no. 32 re. conditional increase in the share capital and change to the Company’s Statutes and the following resolutions of the Supervisory Board: of 4 April 2006 re. adoption of the Incentive Scheme Rules, of 21 June 2006 re. defining the Award Holders as well as the act on bonds of 29 June 1995 with subsequent amendments (consolidated text: Journal of Laws 01.120.1300 as amended);
  3. issue size
    130 779 bonds;
  4. nominal value
    0.01th (one hundredth) of PLN;
  5. issue price of bonds
    0.01th (one hundredth) of PLN;
  6. conditions of redemption and conditions underlying the payment of the interest on bonds
    redemption of bonds will take place not later than on 30 November 2009 acc. to their nominal value if criteria entitling the bondholders to convert bonds to series H shares are not met earlier and the bondholders do not exercise the entitlement;
    earlier redemption may also take place when:
    • the Bank demands the immediate submission of Bonds for redemption if the bondholder loses the status of the Award Holder pursuant to the Rules adopted by the Issuer’s Supervisory Board as well as in other cases referred to in the Rules; in the circumstances referred to in the previous sentence; if the Bank exercises the authorization granted to it, it has no obligation to notify the bondholder about the redemption and cancellation of Bonds; otherwise the Bank is obliged to notify the bondholder about its demand in writing not later than 5 business days prior to the early redemption date;
    • the bondholder submits the bonds for immediate redemption in the case of changes to the Rules or other documents governing the Scheme within 30 days of the date s/he was informed about the change.
    bonds are non-interest bearing;
  7. amount and forms of potential security and identification of an entity who provides the security
    bonds are not secured and the Issuer is liable for receivables arising from bonds with all its assets;
  8. value of raised liabilities as at the last day of the quarter preceding the proposal to buy bonds and projections of Issuer’s liabilities/obligations until the time of total redemption of bonds proposed for purchase
    value of liabilities as at 30 June 2006: PLN 26 471 708k; Until the redemption of bonds issued under the Incentive Scheme, i.e. until 30 November 2009, Bank Zachodni WBK S.A. does not anticipate any material changes in the volume of obligations vs total liabilities. Potential departures will stem from the current market situation, in particular from product preferences of the existing and prospective customers of BZWBK Group and from competitiveness of deposit-type products offered by the Bank relative to products offered by competitors. The Bank will publish the value of obligations/liabilities as at the end of each calendar quarter in periodic reports - in line with legal regulations applicable in this respect and on the Bank’s internet sites.
  9. data allowing the potential buyers of bonds to be informed about the effects of the undertaking which is to be financed with the issue of bonds and the issuer’s capacity to meet the obligations arising from the bonds if the undertaking is defined
    the objective of the Bonds’ issue is to ensure the delivery of the Incentive Scheme thanks to which the Issuer expects stronger links, loyalty and identification of the Issuer’s managerial cadre with the Issuer as well motivation for them to continue their strenuous efforts for the benefit of the Issuer, its customers and shareholders;
  10. principles of calculating/converting non-cash benefits into cash benefits
    bondholders do not lose their entitlement to subscribe series H shares in the case of introducing changes to the Issuer’s Statutes (e.g. in the case of increasing the share capital) which directly impact the fulfilment of criteria for exercising entitlement; in the circumstances described above, for the purposes of the Incentive Scheme, a simulation is made to indicate the underlying position as if no changes to the Statutes had been made; when making such a simulation, the assumptions and objectives of the Incentive Scheme as well as the principle of protecting the duly acquired rights should be the guiding principles
    bondholders do not lose entitlement in the event of a disposal of the entire Banking enterprise or when the Bank is taken over by another entity or when it merges with another entity; if, under the circumstances described above, the entitlements could not be exercised, bondholders acquire the right to cash or non-cash benefits to be provided by the Bank or the Bank’s legal successor, in the form as close as possible to the entitlements which cannot be exercised; the above applies accordingly in case the Incentive Scheme expires for any other reason;
    payment in relation to the redemption of Bonds takes place within 30 days of submitting the Bonds to the Bank for redemption by way of a transfer of funds to a banking account indicated by the Award Holder;
    all actions undertaken in situations described in the three paragraphs above should take account of the decisions taken by the Issuer’s General Meeting;
  11. number of shares per bond
    1 (one)
  12. share issue price and manner of setting it
    PLN 10 (ten)
  13. validity and expiry dates of bondholders’ entitlement to buy the said shares
    entitlements are valid as of the dates of the occurrence of the premises outlined in the Incentive Scheme referred to in the Resolution of the Issuer’s General Meeting of 4 April until 31 October 2009.

Fitch Affirms Poland's Bank Zachodni WBK at IDR 'A' (Report no. 60/2006)

Fitch Ratings-London-11 August 2006: Fitch Ratings has today affirmed Poland-based Bank Zachodni WBK's ("BZ WBK") ratings at Issuer Default 'A', Short-term 'F1', Individual 'C' and Support '1'. The Outlook is Positive.

"The bank is performing well, with improving asset quality, good profitability and strong capitalisation," says Chris Birney, Director with Fitch's Financial Institutions Group. "The asset management and brokerage businesses are boosting earnings and improving revenue diversification, while the long-awaited return of corporate loan growth signals improved prospects."

more»

Fitch also notes that as the bank grows more confident in its risk management systems, it has been relaxing some of its credit granting procedures, with lengthening maturities for corporate lending and rapid growth of higher-risk asset classes such as cash retail loans. Additionally, an increasing portion of the loan portfolio consists of mortgage and other retail loans, which have a short history in Poland and have not been tested through a full economic cycle.

The Issuer Default, Short-term and Support ratings are based on the extremely high potential for support from BZ WBK's controlling shareholder, Allied Irish Banks ('AIB', rated 'AA-' (AA minus)/Stable Outlook). BZ WBK's Issuer Default rating is currently constrained by the Country Ceiling 'A' for Poland.

AIB is one of the largest banks in Ireland, with EUR8.4 billion of equity at end-2005. It employs over 24,000 people in more than 700 offices worldwide. AIB built a 60.1% stake in WBK between 1995 and 1996. In 1999 AIB acquired 80% of Bank Zachodni SA from the Polish State Treasury and in 2001 merged the two banks to create BZ WBK, in which AIB currently has a 70.5% stake.

BZ WBK is Poland's fifth largest bank by assets. The Bank operated through 372 branches and had 7,798 full-time employees and end-June 2006.
