JSC BTA Bank (the “Bank”) is pleased to announce the results of the adjourned extraordinary general meeting (the “Meeting”) of the shareholders of BTA Finance Luxembourg S.A. (the “Issuer”).
At the original Meeting held on 22 April 2010, the First Resolutions as set out in the convening notice sent to shareholders by registered letters dated 12 April 2010 (the “Original Notice”) were adopted by simple majority thereby, inter alia, approving the Bank’s Restructuring Plan and authorising the Issuer to vote in favour of the restructuring at the statutory creditors meeting to be held on 28 May 2010. However, the Meeting was inquorate in relation to the Second Resolutions contained in the Original Notice proposing certain changes to the articles of association of the Issuer as set out therein, and therefore the Meeting was adjourned to 25 May 2010.
At the adjourned Meeting, the shareholders of the Issuer (including the holders of the Securities) were eligible to vote on the Second Resolutions (with a two-thirds majority required for an amendment to the articles of association of the Issuer), and also to re-vote on the First Resolutions (by simple majority) due to, inter alia, the low percentage of instructions received by the Registered Holder for the original Meeting.
At the adjourned Meeting both the First Resolutions and the Second Resolutions were passed with a majority in excess of 97%.
