The Supervisory Board will meet once in three months rather than once a month as required in the old Articles. The number of Board of Directors members has been decreased from 7 to 5.
The shareholders have also resolved to set up a new executive body of the Bank, an Executive Committee, which may have up to 15 members and will report directly to the Bank's Board of Directors.
