We generally do not comment market rumours. Due to the improving sentiment in
Central- and Eastern Europe and our excellent market position in the region, we
do however receive offers for the purchase of portfolios or units from time to
time and in different countries. CEE along with Austria is our home market. We
remain fully committed to the region, which over the medium- to long-term
offers attractive growth potential. However, given the current prevailing
challenging environment and the continuing pressure on the banking industry, we
are constantly reviewing our business and actively managing our resources.
