*Included in the total figure of €0.768bn of subordinated debt is the sum of €0.348bn which relates to 300,000 Non-Cumulative Preference Shares.
The inclusion of these preference shares in the bank's subordinated debt is required by accounting rules notwithstanding that they are now owned by the Minister as they remain technically a debt due to the shareholder on a winding up, albeit one ranking after all other debtors.
Please note exchanges rates as at 31 December 2010 have been used where possible in order to provide a corresponding EUR equivalent.
