12. Additional information:

The National Treasury Management Agency (Amendment) Act 2014 (the "NTMA Act 2014") was enacted into Irish law on 26 July 2014. In December 2014, pursuant to the NTMA Act 2014 the ordinary stock held in the Governor and Company of the Bank of Ireland (the "Bank"), previously held by the National Pension Reserve Fund became assets and liabilities of the ISIF by operation of law.

 

Pursuant to a scheme of arrangement that became effective on 7 July 2017, the NTMA's 13.95% holding of voting rights in the Bank was cancelled in exchange for a 13.95% holding of voting rights in BOIG plc.  The scheme of arrangement entitled each holder of ordinary stock in the Bank to receive one BOIG plc share for each individual holding of 30 units of ordinary stock.  Fractional entitlements to BOIG plc shares arising as a result of the 30:1 exchange ratio were rounded up.

 

Ordinary shares of BOIG plc owned indirectly by the NTMA, as controller and manager of the ISIF, is held in the name of BNY Custodial Nominees (Ireland) Limited.
