OBVESTILA
In accordance with the provisions of the Ljubljana Stock Exchange Rules and the applicable legislation, the Management Board of Nova KBM, Maribor, hereby gives the following notice:
 

In accordance with the fourth paragraph of Article 356 (a) of the Companies Act (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, No. 65/2009, official consolidated text with changes and amendments), and the third paragraph of Article 133, the first and third paragraph of Article 136 and the first paragraph of Article 344 of the Financial Instruments Market Act (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, No. 108/2010, official consolidated text with changes and amendments), Nova KBM d.d., Maribor, is hereby announcing that its Management Board has today, 18 March 2013, reached a decision to increase the share capital of Nova KBM d.d. with a new in-kind contribution of €100,000,000 by issuing 98,522,167 new ordinary shares in order to convert a hybrid loan facility into Bank shares. The Supervisory Board of Nova KBM d.d. has not yet consented to the share capital increase (a meeting of the Supervisory Board is called for 2 April 2013).


The rights attached to the new shares will be identical to the rights attached to the existing ordinary, registered shares of Nova KBM d.d. The total issue amount is €100,000,000.


The subject of in-kind contribution is a claim of the Republic of Slovenia against Nova KBM d.d. for the payment of principal in the amount of €100,000,000, pursuant to the €100 Million Hybrid Loan Facility Agreement entered into on 31 December 2012 by and between the Republic of Slovenia, as the lender, and Nova KBM d.d., as the borrower. The Republic of Slovenia has provided the proceeds of the hybrid loan facility to the account of Nova KBM d.d., and the facility has not yet been repaid.


In-kind contribution is equal to the total value of the issue, i.e. €100,000,000, and will be shown at this value in the 2012 audited annual report of Nova KBM d.d. No new circumstances have arisen since 31 December 2012 with respect to the assessment of the in-kind contribution.


Nova KBM d.d. will receive in-kind contribution from the Republic of Slovenia. Payment for shares is to be made by converting the hybrid loan facility into Bank shares until 7 April 2013.
