FAQ
1How can I purchase shares of TMR?

TMR shares can be purchased on three stock exchanges in the region; i.e.: a) the Bratislava Stock Exchange (Burza cenných papierov v Bratislave); b) the Prague Stock Exchange (Burza cenných papírů Praha); and c) the Warsaw Stock Exchange (Giełda Papierów Wartościowych w Warszawie S.A.)

a) Purchase of shares on the Bratislava Stock Exchange is executed by stockbrokers (Patria Finance, a.s., SALVE INVESTMENTS, o.c.p., a.s...) or by banks (Poštová banka, J&T BANKA, VUB, SLSP,..). The complete list of the exchange members is available athttp://www.bsse.sk/bcpben/Members/ListofBSSEMembers/tabid/184/language/en-US/Default.aspx
You can contact the banks or brokers online, via a hotline or directly at a branch. If you execute purchase of the shares for the first time, you sign a commission contract with a bank or broker, based on which you will be able to buy the shares. The bank or broker usually opens an equity account for the client in the Central Securities Depository (CSD), where the shares will be held after the purchase. The client may arrange an equity account opening in CSD itself. If you decide to buy the shares, you will fill out an order to buy securities, stating the number of shares and other specifics, so the trade could be carried out. The bank or broker executes your instructions on the stock exchange and will send you the confirmation of the trade.
Sale procedure is similar to purchase. Since the commission contract is already signed, it is sufficient to send an order to sell in the bank (similar to purchase, with a difference of a “sale” order instead of “buy”).

b) In case of buying shares on the Prague Stock Exchange, you need to contact their broker or bankhttp://www.pse.cz/Members.aspx.

c)  In case of buying shares on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, you need to contact Exchange memebrs (http://www.gpw.pl/lista_czlonkow_gieldy_en)  or the market maker directly – BOŚ at makler@bossa.pl.

9What is the minimum quantity of shares to purchase?

The minimum and the maximum investment (number of shares or total amount in €) into shares of TMR is not limited.
But if you buy at least 25 shares of TMR, you become a member of the Shareholders’ club and you are entitled to its benefits. More information is available at Shareholder club.

10With purchase of 80 shares is the benefit 25 days skipass annually or only once?

TMR’s benefits do not have limited validity; they are valid not only for one year, but for an unlimited period of time, in case you are still fulfilling the criteria of holding shares of TMR and you hold a particular number (in this case 80 shares) of TMR shares. As it is mentioned on our web page www.tmr.sk in section Shareholders’ club, under Conditions, 1st point, if we have a confirmation that as of October 31 (November 31, 2012 for shareholders that bought the shares in Poland or the Czech Republic), that you have reached or passed the stated limit, there is a corresponding right for a benefit for you. So if you own 80 shares the next year as of October 31, as well, you will be given the benefit 25 days skipass after this date.

11Under what circumstances can a citizen/legal entity of the Czech Republic/ Poland invest into shares of TMR?

Of course citizens and legal entities of the Czech Republic and Poland can invest into the TMR stock. 
Since 22/10/2012 the TMR stock is traded on the Prague Stock Exchange, where you can buy it through a stockbroker or banks that are exchange members (http://www.pse.cz/Members.aspx).
Since 15/10/2012 the TMR stock is traded on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, where you can buy it through a stockbroker or banks that are exchange members (http://www.gpw.pl/lista_czlonkow_gieldy_en).

12I am registered in the Czech trader Patria Direct, a.s. Prague. If I buy 25 shares without this dealer, will I get also the benefit 6 days skipass from you?

Yes, if you decide to implement TMR share purchase via broker, by company Patria Direct, a.s., of course also in this case you are entitled to the benefit of our shareholders’ club.

13Is the market liquid? Is it possible I won’t find counterparty to my buy trade?

On the market there is a market maker, i.e. a trader that buys and sells every day, based on an agreement with the exchange, which binds them to execute buy and sell orders of TMR shares via the exchange trading platform – every day you can buy from or sell the shares to the market maker. On the Bratislava and Prague exchanges J&T Banka, a.s. is TMR’s market maker, and on the Warsaw Stock Exchange it is BOŚ DM.

14What is the difference between investment based on the commission contract and investment into mutual funds?

The biggest difference is the fact that the trades based on the commission contract are carried out based on the instruction from the client – this means the client decides alone what kind of securities he/she holds in the portfolio. In a mutual fund a portfolio manager selects the securities, this means the client cannot influence this decision.

17Payment of health insurance contributions on dividend income.

The obligation to pay health insurance contributions on dividends paid out from profit according to Act No. 580/2004 Coll. On Health Insurance, as amended, for the first time concerns dividends paid out from profit achieved in the accounting period starting after 01/01/2011. 
In case of Tatry mountain resorts, a.s. (TMR) the obligation to pay the public health insurance contributions concerns the dividends paid out from TMR’s profit for the accounting period that started on 01/11/2011 and ended on 31/10/2012, i.e. the dividends that TMR will be paying out upon their approval by the General Meeting in 2013.
The shareholder (dividend recipient) who receives dividends in the amount less than €393.00 is not obliged to pay any health insurance contributions on this income. 
The contribution rate for dividend income has been set by law at 10%; for persons with a handicap at 5%.
Further details on contributions on dividend income (disclosure requirements, contribution base, etc.) are provided by relevant health insurance providers:

For clients of VŠZP

For clients of Dôvera

For clients of Union

18Will the pay-out from the decrease of share capital be subject to taxation and health care contributions?

As per Slovak Act No. 595/2003 Coll. on Income Tax as amended (further only “Income Tax Act”), income from a decrease of share capital of a joint-stock company paid to shareholders – natural persons is not explicitly resolved.  Thus, one can only utilize general principles.

In Article 2 point h) it is stated that “taxable income is income, which is subject to taxation and is not exempt from taxes according to this act nor according to any international treaty”. Consequently, income from decrease of share capital can be treated as other income included in Article 8 Par. 1 point a) “income from occasional activities”. Further, in Article 8 Par. 2 the Income Tax Act states that “the tax basis (partial tax basis) includes taxable income less the documented acquisition cost. If the cost related to the individual type of income described in Par. 1 is higher than the income, the difference is ignored.”

As a result of the above, the shareholder discloses the income from the decrease of share capital in the amount of EUR 26 per share (the Income Tax Act ignores losses) provided that the shareholder had acquired the shares for more than EUR 26 per share, then the tax basis is zero, i.e., the shareholder does not pay income tax on the decrease of share capital. Since the tax basis is zero, it will be not added to the health insurance contribution basis. In any case we strongly recommend shareholders to contact their tax consultants.

19When will the funds from the decrease of share capital be distributed to shareholders?

TMR begins the process of paying its shareholders the difference from the share capital decrease on the day of publishing the Rules of settlement that is to be paid out to shareholders due to reduction of share capital, i.e. on 4 February 2014. The pay-out process will run during periods described in the Rules. The decrease of share capital from EUR 221.34 to 46.95 million was approved at the Extraordinary General Meeting on 22 August 2013. For the full text of the Rules of settlement that is to be paid out to shareholders due to reduction of share capital please click here; for the Application form for the pay-out please click here.

20When is the record day for exercising the rights to the pay-out from the decrease of share capital?

The record day for exercising the rights to the pay-out from the decrease of share capital is the day the reduction of share capital is entered into the Commercial Register, i.e. 22 October 2013.

21Would I receive the pay-out from the share capital reduction even if I sold the TMR shares before the pay date?

Yes, the pay-out from the share capital reduction approved at the Extraordinary General Meeting on August 22, 2013 will be paid to shareholders who were registered as owners of the TMR shares in the Central Securities Depositary of SR or who had had a custody account established on the record day, which is the day the reduction of share capital was entered into the Commercial Register, i.e. 22 October 2013.
