In 2020, the Bank complied with the corporate governance principles contained in the document 'Good practices of companies listed on the WSE' in the scope of relations with investors and the market. The only exception was the lack of two-way communication in real time during the Bank’s General Meeting. In the Bank’s opinion the implementation of this rule during a General Meeting carries technical and legal risks to the correct and efficient conducting of a General Meeting. In the Bank’s opinion, avoiding these risks constitutes a bigger value for the Shareholders. At the same time, the Bank does not rule out the possibility of ensuring to the shareholders real-time two-way communication during the proceedings of General Meetings in future, should factual or legal circumstances change. Full information on compliance with corporate governance principles can be found in Chapter 9 of this report.
