DRAFT RESOLUTION

to be decided upon by the General Meeting of Komerční banka, a. s.,

remotely in writing and using the remote communication electronic platform

under S. 12a of the Articles of Association of the Bank

 

Votes on the draft resolutions can be cast from 18 October 2021 to 2 November 2021.

 

Ad item Distribution of retained earnings of previous years

 

DRAFT RESOLUTION:

Remotely, in writing and using the remote communication electronic platform, the General Meeting approves the distribution of the retained earnings of Komerční banka, a. s., in the amount of CZK 4,534,575,343. 60 as follows:

 

The amount of the share in retained earnings per share is CZK 23.86 before taxation. The right to a share in the retained earnings can be claimed by each shareholder holding a share of Komerční banka, a. s., with ISIN CZ0008019106 as of 11 November 2021. The share in the retained earnings shall be due on 3 December 2021.

 

Reasoning: Under the Corporations Act and the Articles of Association of Komerční banka, a. s., the decision on the distribution of retained earnings of previous years falls within the scope of powers of the General Meeting. The share in the retained earnings is set on the basis of the annual financial statements for 2020 approved by the General Meeting on 21 April 2021 available on the Bank's website www.kb.cz , and was retained in 2019 and 2020 due to the regulatory restrictions relating to the pandemic. As of 31 December 2020, the retained earnings amounted to CZK 74,689,698,163.66 and, based on a decision of the General Meeting of 21 April 2021, this amount was increased by CZK 6,928,610,374.9 and by a dividend amount of CZK 39,480,158 which became time-barred. This means that currently there are CZK 81,657,788,696.56 on the account of retained earnings of previous years. The payment of retained earnings of previous years must be in line with the Corporations Act and will be decided upon by the Board of Directors of the Bank. The share of retained earnings of previous years will be paid out by Komerční banka, a. s., solely by cashless transfer to a bank account. The details on its payment are stated on the Bank's website www.kb.cz . The Board of Directors declares that the statutory requirements as to the distribution of retained earnings of previous years are met and that the volume of the share of the retained earnings to be paid out has been given by the framework of the Czech National Bank, which has no objections to its payment. The due date for the payment of the share of retained earnings of previous years is set in line with S. 6 (3) of the Articles of Association, which is 3 December 2021.

 

The way of managing the share in retained earnings of previous years attributable to own shares held by the Bank reflects S. 309 (2) of the Corporations Act and terminates by its maturity.

 

A document entitled Conditions and arrangements for the payment of retained earnings of previous years which is located on the Bank's website is available to shareholders in connection with the proposal for the distribution of retained earnings of previous years using the remote decision-making procedure.
