Sviluppi recenti Vendita e trasferimento dell’attività di HVB in proprie controllate Austria e in Europa Centrale e Orientale a UniCredit o proprie controllate rispettivamente.
In base alla delibera approvata dal Consiglio di Sorveglianza e dal Comitato di Gestione il 12 settembre 2006 relativa alla vendita delle azioni detenute da HVB in Bank Austria Creditanstalt AG (poi ridenominata UniCredit Bank Austria AG) ("Bank Austria") e di altre unità operative in Europa Centrale e Orientale, approvata dagli azionisti di HVB nel corso dell’Assemblea Straordinaria del 25 ottobre 2006, le azioni di Bank Austria sono state cedute a UniCredit, e le azioni di Joint Stock Commercial Bank Ukraine (HVB Bank Ukraine) sono state cedute a PHB Bank PEKAO, e le azioni in Closed Joint Stock Company International Moscow Bank ("IMB") e AS UniCredit Bank (già HVB Bank Latvia AS, Riga) a Bank Austria nel primo trimestre del 2007; la vendita delle filiali di HVB a Tallinn e Vilnius a AS UniCredit Bank è stata perfezionata nel terzo trimestre del 2007.
Diversi azionisti hanno avviato azioni legali contro le delibere approvate nel corso dell’Assemblea Straordinaria tenuta da HVB il 25 ottobre 2006.. In una sentenza del 31 gennaio 2008, la Prima Corte Regionale di Monaco ha dichiarato nulle - per vizi di forma - le delibere approvate dall'Assemblea Straordinaria del 25 ottobre 2006. HVB ha presentato appello contro tale sentenza e, a prescindere da tale sentenza, ha ottenuto, quale misura cautelare, delibere confermative nell'Assemblee Generale degli Azionisti tenute il 29 e 30 luglio 2008. Anche tali delibere confermative sono state impugnate da diversi azionisti.
