Fitch Ratings Withdrawn at Bank’s Request

15 April 2014

BMB Investment Bank has formally requested Fitch Ratings to discontinue rating the Bank. Fitch Ratings has issued a press release on 14 April 2014 confirming the withdrawal of the credit rating.

The Board and management of BMB do not believe that a credit rating is appropriate for a Bank of BMB’s size and accordingly have requested for the rating to be withdrawn.
