The ECB granted Municipality Finance permission to classify its shares as CET1
instruments

The Annual General Meeting of Municipality Finance Plc ("MuniFin"), held on 22
March 2016, decided to amend the company's Articles of Association by
removing the company's right to redeem its own shares in order to meet the
requirements of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 (Capital Requirements Regulation)
for Common Equity Tier 1 instruments. After the decision of the AGM, MuniFin
applied for an approval from the European Central Bank ("ECB") for inclusion
of the shares into the company's CET1 capital. On 3 May 2016, the ECB granted
MuniFin permission to classify all of its existing share capital instruments
as Common Equity Tier 1 instruments.
