APPOINTMENT AND DISMISSAL OF MANAGEMENT BOARD MEMBERS

The Exchange Management Board is the Company’s executive body comprised of three to five members. As at 31 December 2016 and as at the date of this Report, the Exchange Management Boardu Zarząd Giełdy składał się z 4 członków

The Exchange Management Board consists of three to five members, including the President of the Management Board. The Exchange Management Board members are appointed for a joint four-year term. The President of the Management Board is appointed by the General Meeting. The other members of the Exchange Management Board are appointed by the Exchange Supervisory Board at the President’s request. At least one member of the Exchange Management Board should be appointed by a qualified majority of four-fifths of votes. However, if the Exchange Supervisory Board fails to appoint an Exchange Management Board member in such a manner within one month from the event which gives rise to the obligation to appoint such member, such member will be appointed by an absolute majority by the General Meeting. The first election of Exchange Management Board members under the above rules is held to appoint Exchange Management Board members for a new term of office or in the case of expiry of an Exchange Management Board member’s mandate. Exchange Management Board members can serve as board members in other business entities only with the approval of the Exchange Supervisory Board.

Given that the Company operates a stock exchange, additional rules regarding the composition of the Exchange Management Board apply under the Act on Trading in Financial Instruments of 29 July 2005. Accordingly, the Management Board should include persons with higher education, at least three years of experience in financial market institutions, and a spotless reputation as regards the functions they perform. If a company running an exchange organises an alternative trading system, the above conditions should also be satisfied by the persons directing those activities, unless members of the Exchange Management Board direct the organisation of the alternative trading system.

Changes to the composition of the Exchange Management Board require the consent of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority, which is granted at the request of the Exchange Supervisory Board. The Polish Financial Supervision Authority may refuse to grant consent if the proposed changes do not ensure that operations will be conducted in a way which does not jeopardize the safety of securities trading and properly safeguards the interests of participants in that trading.

POWERS OF THE MANAGEMENT BOARD

The Exchange Management Board handles the Company’s affairs and assets, and represents it in its dealings with third parties. The Exchange Management Board exercises all powers that are not vested in the General Meeting or the Exchange Supervisory Board. Resolutions of the Exchange Management Board are adopted by an absolute majority of votes. Two Exchange Management Board members acting jointly or an Exchange Management Board member acting together with a commercial proxy are authorised to represent the Company. As at the date of preparation of this Report, no commercial proxies have been granted.

Pursuant to § 5.3 of the Articles of Association, the Exchange Management Board may, with the consent of the Exchange Supervisory Board, make interim dividend payments to the shareholders on the terms laid down in the Code of Commercial Companies and Partnerships. The Management Board has, however, no authority to issue or buy out shares.
