In light of the information appeared in the press related to purchasing of VTB Bank shares by VTB Group staff and affiliated persons of the Bank and its subsidiaries, JSC VTB Bank Press Office is entitled to announce the following:
While preparing the Prospectus for additional issue of ordinary shares, VTB Bank consolidated current data about the said persons’ interest in its capital. In compliance with the legislation this information was published in JSC VTB Bank’s Prospectus on 29 July 2009 and later (under the information disclosure statement) it was disclosed in the Interim financial statements for QII 2009.
The information that the said VTB Group staff and other persons purchased the Bank’s shares in the second quarter of 2009 is misleading. The shares were purchased during the IPO in 2007.
