JSC Temirbank is today giving notice of meetings of holders of the 2011 Notes and the 2014 Notes, on Tuesday 22 December 2009 and a meeting of the Restructuring Creditors on Wednesday 23 December 2009 to approve the restructuring. (Please note that the notice of meeting for holders of the 2011 Notes issued through the Regulatory News Service on Friday 27 November 2007 was issued in error and should be disregarded.) 

The meetings are timed to be held before expiry of the FMSA's deadline of 30 December 2009 for approval of the Restructuring Plan by creditors. International Bondholders should note that this deadline does not allow time for adjourned meetings of bondholders. Therefore JSC Temirbank strongly encourages holders to express their view through voting prior to the Early Submission Deadline to help ensure that the first meetings meet their quorum requirement and to make sure holders eligible to receive the Early Submission Payment.
