Official statement of RBC on reelection of General Director
Moscow, 29 June 2009 - On June 25, 2009, Chairman of the Board of Directors of OAO RBC Information Systems German Kaplun made a decision to convene a meeting of the Board of Directors on June 30, 2009. The meeting will be held by absentee ballot and/or in the form of voting in person and includes on the agenda the questions of the early termination of powers of the company’s General Director Yuri Rovensky and the reelection of General Director.
On June 26, 2009, all members of the RBC Board of Directors, including Yuri Rovensky, received respective voting ballots. Since the voting is by absentee ballot and/or in the form of voting in person, RBC’s lawyers have already received signed ballots from the majority of the members of the Board. According to them, the decision on the early termination of powers of the company’s General Director Yuri Rovensky and the reelection of General Director will be approved tomorrow, on June 30, 2009.
Under the circumstances, Mr. Rovensky tried to present the situation, as if he has made a voluntary resignation, which doesn’t reflect the situation as it is.
RBC management perceives the statements of Mr. Rovensky to mass media about RBC’s debt restructuring process as an attempt to bring pressure on the company‘s creditors and shareholders by lobbying the interests of one financial group, which is willing to participate in RBC’s share capital on the terms, unacceptable for most of the company’s shareholders and creditors.
Lobbying of the interests, which go against the company’s interests, along with many other reasons prompted the RBC Board of Directors to resolve to reelect General Director of the company.
Mr. Rovensky has not participated in the company’s debt restructuring process, and his involvement in RBC’s operating activities was minor. Therefore, his leaving will not influence both the debt restructuring process and the company’s operations.
