It appears to the stock exchange announcement of 1 October 2009 regarding the convening of the meeting in the bank's Supervisory Committee and the Board's proposals for issues of equity certificates.

The bank's Supervisory Committee has in meeting on 20 October 2009 adopted the Board's proposal:
1) private placement to Gjensidige Forsikring BA through the issuance of 18,735,363 equity certificates of subscription price of NOK 42.55
2) public rights issue of 9,450,870 equity certificates at a subscription price NOK 35,- per equity certificate
3) private placement to Gjensidige BA through the issuance of 1,977,702 equity certificates at a subscription price NOK 35,- per equity certificate
4) private placement to the bank's employees of up to 2,571,428 equity certificates at a subscription price NOK 35,- per equity certificate.

Gross proceeds of these issues will be minimum NOK 1,197,189,7541 and a maximum of NOK 1,287,189,741. In total it will be issued a minimum of 30,163,936 equity certificates and a maximum of 32,735,363 equity certificates.

Kredittilsynet has in a letter of 20 October 2009 announced that they will be able to approve the private placing to Gjensidige on the condition that it will be transferred NOK 20 million to the compensation fund. SpareBank 1 SR-Bank has assumed that in its decision. The bank's Supervisory Committee has given the Board authority to be able to appeal against Kredittilsynet's decision by the Public Administration Act provisions.

The private placement towards Gjensidige BA is conditional on being granted such a permit after the Financial Institutions Act § 2b-17 cf. § § 2 .2 et seq to own more than 10% of the equity evidence in the bank.
