Due to the application of the revised version of IAS 39 in 2005, investments in the

available for sale category were reassigned to the valuation categories for investments

held to maturity and loans. In 2008, the new option in IAS 39.50 was used to reclassify

other investments available for sale as loans. The unrealized gains and losses from these

reclassified investments are recognized in a special reserve under other reserves. In the

event of the disposal or impairment of an investment, the reserve is reversed in full. If the

investment remains unchanged in the portfolio, the reserve is reversed by amortization

over the residual term of the asset.
