Structure of the corporate governance

General Meeting of Shareholders

The senior management body of Bank Vozrozhdenie is the General Meeting of Shareholders. Each shareholder who owns voting shares of the Bank is entitled to attend the General Meeting of Shareholders and is entitled to vote on all items of its agenda, to receive notice of such a meeting and its agenda in a timely manner, and to obtain reliable, objective and timely information sufficient to make reasonable decisions on items discussed. To preserve and protect these rights properly, the Bank organizes general meetings of shareholders in a way that provides them with actual and convenient opportunities to attend, while ensuring equal treatment of all shareholders.

The main objective of the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders is to enable shareholders to assess the Bank’s business results and discuss the Bank’s performance. Shareholders holding 2% or more of the voting shares are entitled to put items on the agenda for discussion and nominate candidates to the Board of Directors and the Audit Commission.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is responsible for general management of the Bank’s operations in accordance with current legislation and the Articles of Association. Its main responsibilities include determining the strategic priorities of the Bank, control over its financial operations, maintaining an effective system of internal control, securing shareholders’ rights, and supervising the activity of the executive bodies.

Directors are elected by the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders for the period until the next Annual General Meeting or until an Extraordinary General Meeting with an agenda that includes the election of new directors. The Board consists of 12 members.

The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held on June 29, 2012 elected the Board of Directors, which included 11 people from the previous Board membership, while Mr. Vladimir Malinin became a new independent director and Mr. Viktor Khartov resigned from the Board.

Mr. Dmitry Orlov was elected as the new Chairman of the Board of Directors at its first meeting held on July 2, 2012.

These included the responsibility to set criteria, limits and authority to carry out banking transactions, including transactions bearing credit risk, as well as procedures for approval of various types of transactions, including real estate transactions.

In 2012, six of twelve members of the Board were independent directors.
