    In addition to the items mandated for public disclosure by the Securities and Commodities Authority’s Regulations as to Disclosure and Transparency (as amended by Decision no. 75 Year 2004 and Decision no. 155 Year 2005) (the “Disclosure Regulations”), the Bank’s corporate governance principles require the Bank to maintain high standards of disclosure and transparency.

In this regard, the Bank instituted a feedback form on its Investor Relations website page. All shareholders are encouraged to attend the annual general assembly or appoint proxies to attend and vote in their stead.
