In spite of the provisions of the By-laws of PZU (in particular those concerning the limitations of the voting rights of the shareholders other than the State Treasury and the rules of appointing the Supervisory Board of PZU), for the purposes of presentation of related party transactions, it is assumed that the State Treasury has retained control over PZU, as understood by IAS 27, and thus PZU remains an entity controlled by the State Treasury.
Non-life insurance contracts, life insurance contracts and investment contracts constituted the majority of transactions with subsidiaries, joint-ventures and associates of the State Treasury. The transactions are concluded and settled on the terms and conditions applicable to customers which are not related parties.
