    Iceland Bank Calls for Shareholder Assembly – Discusses Regulatory Compliance and Leadership Changes

    Íslandsbanki summons shareholders for a crucial assembly to address regulatory compliance issues and leadership transitions.

    The board of directors of Islandsbanki has officially announced the convening of a significant shareholder assembly scheduled for the 28th of July. The pivotal assembly will encompass the election of the bank’s board members, deputy board members, and board chairman.

    This momentous event was disclosed in a formal communication from Islandsbanki.

    Furthermore, during the assembly, key discussions will revolve around Islandsbanki’s compliance with financial supervision conducted by the Central Bank of Iceland (FME) and the bank’s subsequent response.

    All shareholders possess the rightful privilege to attend the shareholder assembly, voice their opinions, and exercise their voting rights. Attendees with voting rights include shareholders, their representatives, auditors, directors, and executives.

    Representatives from the FME are also allowed to be present at the assembly; however, they do not possess any proposal rights or voting rights.

    The assembly is scheduled to take place at the prestigious Grand Hotel Reykjavik, on the appointed date, the 28th of July, commencing at 11 a.m.

    Resignations in the Past Week

    The FME’s report was made public on Monday, shedding light on various irregularities within Islandsbanki during the government’s stake offering in the institution. As a consequence of the report, the CEO of Islandsbanki, Birna Einarsdottir, tendered her resignation during the week, and Jon Gudni Omarsson has now assumed the position of CEO.

    Additionally, news surfaced yesterday regarding the departure of Asmundur Tryggvason, the bank’s executive director overseeing corporate and investment affairs. In his stead, Kristin Hronn Gudmundsdottir has been appointed.
