EFG Eurobank Ergasias S.A. (the “Bank”) announces that the Ministry of Development, Competitiveness and Shipping approved, by its decision No K2-8060/20.09.2011, the decrease of the Bank's share capital by reducing the nominal value of the ordinary share from €2.81 to €2.22 and the amendment of article 5 of the Bank's Articles of Association.
