Fitch Affirms Poland's Bank Zachodni WBK at Long-term IDR 'A+' (Current report no.36/2007)

Bank Zachodni WBK S.A. hereby advises that:

  • “Fitch Ratings-London/Warsaw -4 July 2007: Fitch Ratings has today affirmed Poland-based Bank Zachodni WBK's ("BZWBK") ratings at Long-term Issuer Default 'A+', Short-term Issuer Default 'F1', Individual 'C' and Support '1'. The Outlook is Stable.
  • "The bank remains well capitalised, while profitability and revenue diversification continue to improve," says Chris Birney, Director with Fitch's Financial Institutions Group. "It appears to have built a solid franchise in retail banking in recent years, despite its unwillingness to lend in Swiss Francs." Swiss Franc retail lending is popular in Poland; it offers lower nominal interest rates but leaves borrowers exposed to risk from exchange rate volatility.
more»
  • Asset quality improved in 2006 and Q107, and reserve coverage is good. The bank’s ability to measure and manage credit risk has been strengthened by Basel II preparations; BZWBK plans to adopt an internal ratings-based approach to credit risk under Basel II on 1 January 2008.
  • The Long- and Short-term Issuer Default and Support ratings are based on the extremely high potential for support from BZWBK's controlling shareholder, Allied Irish Banks (“AIB”, rated 'AA-' (AA minus)/Stable Outlook) in case of need. BZWBK represented 6% of AIB’s assets and generated 13% of the group’s pre-tax profit in 2006.
  • BZWBK is Poland's seventh-largest bank with a 5% share of sector assets. The bank operated through 377 branches and had 8,065 full-time employees at end-March 2007.
  • AIB is one of the largest banks in Ireland, with EUR8.6bn of equity at end-2006. 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 it with WBK to create BZWBK, in which AIB currently has a 70.5% stake.

Lunch a Long-term Incentive Scheme “Performance Share Plan” (Current report no. 35/2007)

Bank Zachodni WBK hereby informs that in 2007 it has launched Long-term Incentive Scheme 2 “Performance Share Plan” referred to in current report no. 3/2007 of January 26, 2007.

One of the Scheme’s elements is the issue and allocation of bonds with pre-emptive rights when subscribing for the Bank’s shares. The allocation in question has been made.

The key information about the issued bonds is presented below:

more»
  1. purpose of the bonds issue
    delivery of objectives underlying the Incentive Scheme 2 adopted by force of Resolution no. 27 on adoption of the Incentive Scheme passed by the Issuer’s General Meeting on 17 April 2007.
  2. defining the type of issued bonds
    registered bonds, dematerialized, with a pre-emptive right to take up series I shares issued pursuant to the following resolutions passed by Bank Zachodni WBK General Meeting on 17 April 2007: no. 28 re. issue of bonds with pre-emptive rights, no. 29 re. conditional increase in the share capital and change to the Company’s Statutes and the following resolutions of the Supervisory Board: of 17 April 2007 re. adoption of the Incentive Scheme Rules, of 20 June 2007 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
    78 341 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 2010 acc. to their nominal value if criteria entitling the bondholders to convert bonds to series I shares are not met earlier and the bondholders do not exercise their entitlement;

    The 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 31 March 2007: PLN 29 366 788k. Until the redemption of bonds issued under Incentive Scheme 2, i.e. until 30 November 2010, 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 liabilities as at the end of each calendar quarter in periodic reports – in line with legal regulations applicable in this respect and available 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 Incentive Scheme 2 thanks to which the Issuer expects stronger links, loyalty and identification of the Issuer’s managerial cadre with the Issuer as well motivate 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 I 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 fulfillment of criteria for exercising the entitlement; in the circumstances described above, for the purposes of Incentive Scheme 2, 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 Incentive Scheme 2 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 Incentive Scheme 2 referred to in the Resolution of the Issuer’s General Meeting of 17 April 2007 re. adoption of the Incentive Scheme (Scheme), Rules of the Incentive Scheme until 31 October 2010.

Statement on compliance with corporate governance principles (Current report no. 34/2007)

In reference to the Bank Zachodni WBK Annual Report published on 22 February 2007 which contained the Bank’s Management Board statement on compliance with corporate governance principles defined in the “2005 Best Practices in public companies” introduced by force of Resolution no. 44/1062/2004 of the Warsaw Stock Exchange Board, the Management Board confirms the application of principles envisaged in the 2005 Best Practices in public companies except for principle no. 42.

Bank Zachodni WBK declared that it would take every effort to have the External Auditor changed at least every five years. This principle cannot be currently applied as in line with the applicable Allied Irish Banks Group (AIB) policy of which BZWBK is a member, a decision has been made to have one and the same Auditor across all AIB Group.

Allied Irish Banks has decided not to change the Auditor which is fully compliant with the European legislation (Directive 2006/43/EC of the European Parliament of 17 May 2006 on statutory audits of annual accounts and consolidated accounts), which regulates, amongst others, the principle of independence of the key partner - the External Auditor that is in charge of carrying out the audit if their change is made at least every seven years.

The important thing is that the process of Bank Zachodni WBK 2006 financial reporting process was tested, by the current Auditor acc. to the standards recommended by Sarbanes-Oxley Act. AIB Group is a company also listed on NYE. This means that all AIB units (including Bank Zachodni WBK S.A. as member of AIB Group) must comply with American requirements stemming from the SOX act (as it is commonly known). The Bank would have to be certain that the agreed accounting procedures and standards will be confirmed next year. Hence, the continuity of the auditor’s function was considered highly desirable.

When appointing an auditor, Supervisory Board of BZWBK takes into account first of all the quality of the offered services and Auditor’s adherence to the global standards whereas the KPMG company ensures the highest quality in all aspects.

The authorities of Bank Zachodni WBK, based on their experience to-date, are deeply convinced that a decision on appointing the Auditor for another year will not impact either the independence or professionalism of the audit.
