The Report:

The Management Board of PKO Bank Polski S.A. („the Bank”) informs that on 21 February 2024 it received the recommendation from the Polish Financial Supervision Authority („PFSA”) in which the PFSA confirmed that the Bank fulfils the criteria for the payment of dividend up to 75% of the profit for 2023, whereby the maximum amount of payment may not exceed the amount of the annual profit less the profit generated in 2023 already counted as own funds.

The Bank has included in its own funds the net profit, achieved in the first half of 2023, in the amount of PLN 1,624,430,283 at standalone level and PLN 1,697,253,857 at consolidated level.

PFSA also recommends that the Bank should limit the risk occurring in its activity by not conducting any other activities, in particular those beyond the scope of current business and operating activities, which may result in a reduction of own funds, including possible dividend payments from undistributed profits from previous years and buybacks or buyouts of own shares, without prior consultation with the supervisory authority.
