4. to reduce the Altum’s special reserve capital for the Covid-19 loan and guarantee programmes in the amount of 27.5 million EUR, taking into account that the impact of the pandemic upon corporates has decreased leading to decreased demand for respective funding in these programmes, and to reallocate the said funding for financing the investment loans’ with a capital rebate programme, by increasing the amount of the programme and maintaining the same nature of the funding – funding for the implementation of a new support programme and covering expected losses.
