Spinning off Getin Noble Bank from the Getin Holding Group

By the end of June 2011, the Company announced that it intended to make strategic changes in the Capital Group structure. The main, yet not the only, change was the spinning off of Getin Noble Bank from the group through Allianz Bank, a company that the group had previously taken over.

The spin-off benefits:

  1. an increase of the free float of the Getin Noble Bank stock, which will make its valuation more market-driven;
    1. satisfaction of the commitment made to the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (KNF) to increase the free float of the Getin Noble Bank stock to a minimum of 15% within 3.5 years of the merger of Getin Bank and Noble Bank in January 2010
  2. separating the mature bank that enjoys an established position in the market from start-up and foreign units
    1. separating units that incur different level and type of risks
    2. clearer structure that makes the analysis and evaluation of the units simpler
    3. eliminating negative synergies in the group (such as consolidation adjustments)
  3. the applied transaction model is business and tax neutral
  4. Getin Holding taking control over Idea Bank (one of the process elements)
    1. increase in the Getin Noble Bank equity by the sale of Idea Bank shares to Getin Holding
    2. avoiding charging the Getin Noble Bank equity and solvency ratio thanks to Getin Holding taking over the obligation to increase Idea Bank capital
