The final number of shares to be received by the HFSF will be determined based on the volume weighted average price of the Eurobank share on the Athens Exchange over the 10 working day period prior to the EGM, and at a minimum of 1,418,750,000 shares. According to the transaction terms defined by HFSF, Eurobank will pay a EUR 1.00 cash consideration in exchange for 100% of the shares and voting rights of Proton.
