The Governor and Company of the Bank of Ireland ("Bank of Ireland")
Total Voting Rights
In conformity with Regulation 27 of the Transparency (Directive 2004/109/EC) Regulations 2007 Bank of Ireland announces that, as at 15 March 2012:
1. Bank of Ireland has in issue 30,132,505,842 units of Ordinary Stock, of nominal value of €0.05 each, with voting rights (the "Ordinary Stock"). Bank of Ireland holds 22,008,690 units of Ordinary Stock in treasury which do not carry voting rights; and
2. Bank of Ireland has in issue 1,837,041,304 units of preference stock of €0.01 each (the "2009 Preference Stock") which carry voting rights in limited circumstances. Specifically, where the holder of the 2009 Preference Stock holds less than 25% of the total voting rights in Bank of Ireland pursuant to its holding of Ordinary Stock, the 2009 Preference Stock entitles such a holder to increase its voting rights to 25% of the total number of votes capable of being cast for the following resolutions at a General Court of Bank of Ireland:
· a resolution for the appointment, re-election or removal of directors; or
· a resolution relating to certain matters pertaining to a proposed change of control of Bank of Ireland.
As the holder of the 2009 Preference Stock currently holds 15.13% which is less than 25% of the total voting rights in Bank of Ireland pursuant to its holding of Ordinary Stock, the voting rights of the 2009 Preference Stockholder are therefore increased to 25% of the total number of votes capable of being cast for the above resolutions, which equates to a voting entitlement of 7,533,126,460 votes.
The Ordinary Stock in issue figure of 30,132,505,842 should be used by stockholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, Bank of Ireland, under the Transparency (Directive 2004/109/EC) Regulations 2007 and the Transparency Rules of the Central Bank of Ireland.
