8. Basic elements of development strategy of the Issuing Party and goals of the
issue
Basic elements of development strategy
The strategy foresees development within the real estate market, which is advantageous for shareholders, business
partners and for local communities. The core of this strategy is long-term trust of all entities engaged in implementation of
each project.
Thanks to gained knowledge and experience, the Issuing Party has specialised in designing and construction of large area
commercial objects and commercial galleries, as well as commercial parks in medium size cities.
Besides product diversification, the Group of the Issuing Party also maintains a geographical diversification. The list of cities,
where the Group of the Issuing party has finished, peforms or plans to implement its projects in all segments of its activity,
is as follows: Stargard Szczeciński, Białystok, Grudziądz, Kalisz, Zamość, Bielsko Biała, Katowice, Jastrzębie Zdrój, Dąbrowa
Górnicza, Opole, Wrocław, Legnica, Jelenia Góra, Kłodzko, Zgorzelec, Skarżysko-Kamienna, Świdnica, Jarosław, Krosno,
which form a proof that this strategy is implemented with consequence.
In order to execute the investment plans, the Group of the Issuing Party assumes that it will obtain capital from the capital
market by issuing shares. Estimated value of planned financial expenses on investments of the Group of the Issuing Party is
expected to equal 500,1 mln PLN in the period of 2010-2012. Besides the assets obtained from issuing shares, the other
part of investment expenses will come from own assets of the Issuing Party, combined with bank loans. In particular, it is
planned that the Issuing Party will reinvest up 90% of net income from the following years of business activity. Developer
projects can be found among the investments planned by the Group of the Issuing Party.
Goals of the Issue
The main condition of the Public Offer is to obtain funds, which will allow the Issuing Party to implement its planned
strategy and to expand its current activity. The Issuing Party plans to earmark the net income from the issue of new Shares
for:

Increasing the capital in its target companies, which will use thus obtained assets to cover their own contribution to
the investment projecst implemented by the Capital Group,

Supplementation of own contribution to the Galeria Piastów investment in Legnica,

Payment of current loan obtained from BZ WBK S.A.
The Issuing Party provides a maximum period in which the obtained assets are about to be used as 9 months from the date
the assets arrive at the Partnership. The Partnership Board anticipates to obtain a net amount of up to 51 mln PLN from the
Issue of Series C Shares, with the assumption that all Offered Shares are obtained by the Investors at the maximum price.
The Issuing Party plans to use income from the Issue as follows:

These projects have been classified according to their implementation priority.

expenses on particular investments can be found in p. 6.1.1.5 Part III of the Prospectus, „Registration Document”.
o
Information related to the investment N 6 i.e. „Galeria Piastów” in Legnica have been presented in p. 5.1.7 and 8.1 Part III
of the Prospectus, „Registration Document”.
The value of spendings on investment planned by the Issuing Party for the 2010-2012 period equals 500,1 mln PLN in total,
and the total amount would be spend on investments in commercial objects.
The assets for funding the investment projects planned for the 2010-2012 period, described in p. 5.2.2., 5.2.3 and 8.1.3 Part
III of the Prospectus, „Registration Document” will come from:

Issue of New Shares – 49 mln PLN;

Monetary income from current activities and investments– 52,9 mln PLN;

Bank loans – 398,2 mln PLN.
The Issuing Party assumes, that the amount of debt funding in funding of all planned development projects will constitute
about 70%.
The investment goals presented above and spending on these investments are to be executed independently of each other.
The Issuing Party plans to implement these goals during the 2010-2012 period. In the opinion of the Issuing Party, the
assets obtained by issuing New Shares, complemented with debt financing and own assets from current activities and
investments will be enough to reach the goals of the Issue.
If the final amount of assets obtained by issuing New Shares will be lower than expected by the Board of the Issuing Party,
then the spendings on implementation of issuing goals will be additionally funded from other sources (own assets of the
Issuing Party, bank loans or leasing), and even if these funds would be insufficient, then the period of investment
program will be prolonged.
As of the date of Prospecuts approval, the Issuing Party does not expect the goals of the Issue to be changed. If it turns
out, however, that implementation of planned investments will be impossible or ineffective because of any reasons, the
Board of the Issuing Party does not reject the possibility of assets transfer between the aforementioned goals of the
Issue of Series C Shares or of implementation of other investments. Any potential changes regarding assets transfers wil
be made by the virtue of a resolution of the Board of the Issuing Party and immediately announced to the general
public. If the resolution on assets transfer would be made before the Series C Shares enter stock circulation, an
appropriate information will be given to the general public, also by making an annex to the Prospectus available (which
is to be approved by the KNF). This annex will be announced to the general public in the same way as the Prospectus.

II. THE RISK FACTORS
1. Risk factors related to the environment of business activity of the Issuing Party
1.1.
Risk related to macroeconomical and political situation in Poland
The income of the Partnership as a whole is related to its activity on the domestic market and thus it indirectly depends on
factors resulting from the general, macroeconomic situation of Poland, such as unemployment levels, economic growth
rate or inflation rate. Perturbations on international financial markets have influenced the economic situation in Poland. A
decline in national economic growth rate has been noted, along with depreciation of PLN related to foreign currencies. The
aforementioned macroeconomic tendencies have influenced and can influence the financial status of the Partnership.
All future unfavourable changes of one or more aforementioned factors, especially worsening of the condition of Polish
economy, currency crisis or public finance crisis, can unfavourably influence the financial results and financial situation of
the Partnership.
1.2.
Risk of legal regulations change
Changes of fegal regulations or different interpretations of the low form a specific risk. Incoherence, lack of uniform
interpretation of the law or frequent novelisations carry a huge risk in business activity, especially in the field of ground
acquisition and execution of construction investments. The potential changes, especially related to the industrial activity
regulations, environmental regulations, labour law and social insurances changes, commercial law (including partnership
law and laws regulating the rules of capital market), can lead in a direction which causes negative influence on the activities
of the Partnership. Polish law is still in the adaptation phase, a result of Polish accession to the European Union. Changes in
Page 22
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
legal regulations related to this process can influence the legal environment of business activities, including that of the
partnership.
One of the effects of European Union expansion is the need to bring the Polish law to the state of concordance with
European legislation. Many acts have been changed and European law regulations are still implemented; these modify
existing administration and court procedures and the laws regulating business activitiy, eg. added value tax rates. Bringing
new regulation of economic market into effect can also lead to interpretation problems, incoherent court decisions,
unfavourable interpretations assumed by the public administration organs, etc.
The aforementioned circumstances can have negative effect on the activity, financial conditions or results of the
Partnership.
1.3.
Risk related to instability of the tax system
The tax system in Poland is characterised by a relative instability. Potential, unexpected changes to the business activity
related taxes can have a negative effect on the investment and development activity of the Partnership. Besides, there is a
risk that the new tax regulations will make the consumer market and the companies less eager to buy real estates.
1.4.
Risk related to competition increase
The market, in which the Partnership resides, is characterised by a high, and still increasing, level of competition. After
Polish accession to the EU, almost all significant European development-investment companies have started their activity,
especially those with Irish, English and Dutch capital. This phenomenon has significantly contributed to the sharp increase
in competition. The Partnership limits this risk by strengthening its position within current markets, eg., by adding objects
such as commercial parks to the existing commercial sites.
Additionally, the Partnership may encounter a strong competition even at the stage of ground identification and
acquisition. This fact can lead to a sharp increase of ground prices, thus it can negatively influence the return rate of
implemented construction investmsnts.
In order to limit the risk related to competition, the Partnership constantly performs analyses of the real estate market as
well as analyses of competition activity. The Partnership also has the policy of parcel acquisition, assuming their competent
and cautious evaluation.
1.5.
Currency rate risk
A significant part of contracts signed by the Partnership, including rental contracts and loan contracts, is paid with Euro.
Although loan contracts are signed in Euro only then, when in the opinion of the Board they are a natural security of
fluctuations of rental income denominated in Euro from the investments financed by these loans, one cannot exclude, that
currency rate changes in relation to the zloty can have a significant influence on the results of the Partnership. In the period
of a significant rise in currency rates, this rise can also positively influence sales income, but also a significantly negative
effect on the financial status or results of the Partnership. In the period of significant currency rate drops, this drop can
unfavourably influence sales income, but it can also positively influence the financial situation or results of the Partnership.
Such instability of the result is limited by the Partnership in the way which is described above, as well as with proper
security strategies, agreed with the institution financing a particular project.
On the day of Prospectus’ approval, a dependent comapny of the Partnership - E.F. Progress V Sp. z o.o., has a futures
st
contracted sale of 3.299.554,80 Euro, with the sale rate of 3,5150 PLN/Euro, execution deadline May 31 , 2010.
1.6.
Interest rate risk
The Partnership widely uses rated external financing sources, such as bonds, construction loans, investment loans, current,
non-renewable loans, current revolving loans, loans for capital release from finished investments and loan lines in current
account, both in Euro and in PLN. As a consequence, the Partnership is subjected to the risk of variation in interest rates of
these debt securities, which have a variable interest rates. In order to limit this risk, the Partnership will perform strategies
agreed with financial institutions, leading to limiting this risk, eg. by the use of derivatives to change variable interest rates
to fixed interest rates.
1.7.
Financial problems of the Partnership customers
Perturbations on financial markets and economic slowdown can have a negative influence on financial viability, business
activity or financial situation of the Partnership ucstomers, especially entities renting the commercial real estate owned by
the Partnership and its dependent companies, as it can have a negative influence on the activity, financial and material
situation or the results of the Partnership.
2. Factors specific for the Issuing Party and its market
2.1.
Risk related to strategic goals
Page 23
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
The Partnership cannot assure that it will reach its strategic goas. The markets, on which the Partnership is active, are
subjected to constant changes, the direction and intensity of which depend on many factors. Thus, the future position on
the market, material status, as well as income and profits of the Partnership depend on its ability to design and implement
a long term strategy as well as on the conditions and trends of the market. Making any missed decisions resulting from a
wrong judgement or the inability to adapt to the everchanging market conditions can have negative influence on the results
of the Partnership. In order to minimize this risk, the Partnership tries to analyse all key factors for the choice of strategy,
both a short term and a long term on, so it is possible to define the direction and intensity of market environment changes
as precisely as possible.
2.2.
Risk related to the increase of current costs and other costs
Current costs and other costs of the Partnership can increase with no simultaneous increase of turnover. The factors which
can cause the current costs and other costs to rise, may include the following:

inflation,

increase of taxes and other civil-legal duties,

legal regulation changes (eg. environmental changes, S&H, labour law and administration law changes) or changes in
government policies, which increase the cost of conformity to such laws or policies,

increase of financing costs, especially interest rate increases, bank profits increase, currency rates,

increase of other financial costs, including effects of changes in currency rates and losses on financial securities,

increased cost of external services, especially construction-related services,

prolonging effects of financial crisis, which can negatively influence the financial condition of recipients of Partnership
services, including entites renting commercial real estates owned by the Partnership and its dependent companies,

bidding strength of potential, commercial real estate renting entities, which causes an increase of finishing costs in
commercial facilities or, alternatively, an increase of participation in the costs of finishing the facilities, paid by the
renting entities.
The aforementioned factors can have a significant, negative influence on the activity, material and financial situation and
results of the Partnership.
In order to limit the risk related to the increase of financing cost, the Partnership constantly follows the market situation
and applies financial instruments, which protect from unfavourable changes in currenct rates and in loan interest rates. The
risk of increase of other costs under the control of the Partnership, including subcontractors’ services, is limited, eg. by the
application of bidding procedures. The Partnership constantly monitors recipients of its products and services and takes
actions which cause the debts to be regularly paid back.
2.3.
Risk related to changes in construction costs
The Partnership has signed, and will sign in the future, contracts with construction works contractors – for the
implementation part of investment and development projects. The costs of such projects can change, due to:

Increase of construction materials prices,

Deficit of construction materials on the market,

Change of project scope and changes in architectural project,

Increase of employment cost in the case of qualified labour force,

Lack of qualified labour foce and costs related to its recruitment,

Increase of general contractors’ prices,

Inflation,

Lack of work execution by the contractors within specified timeframes and in a standard acceptable for the
Partnership,

Changes of foreign currency rates,

Availability of financing sources and their cost,

Law changes causing the necessity of adherence to higher standards and new construction-related requirements.
Despite a drop tendency seen in the last 6 months in the field of construction works prices, which were caused by the
financial crisis and the drop of demand for construction works related to the crisis, the Partnership estimates that in the
future, a significant rise in construction works prices can follow because Poland and Ukraine were given the honour to host
European Football Championship - Euro 2012. This fact, in combination with the end of the financial crisis can lead to a
significant increase of demand for construction materials. Besides, due to construction of infrastructure related to the Euro
2012 organisation, i.e. roads, stadiums, hotels, etc., demand for construction workers (both qualified and unqualified) can
increase. This fact may cause a sharp increase of construction works prices.
It has to be pointed out, that each significant rise of costs and delays in completion of investment or development projects
can negatively influence the financial viability of the Partnership or it can cause a drop of net increase of the Partnership
assets value.
In order to limit the risk of construction works price increase, the Partnership constantly follows market tendencies, and the
contracts being signed have parameters adjusted according to the situation on the market, as this helps to limit the
fluctuations of construction works prices..
Page 24
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
2.4.
Risk related to dependency of the Partnership on the contractors of construction works
As it implements its investment, the Partnership uses specialised construction works companies as the contractors. The
Partnership holds a constant supervision over the construction works performed, it cannot guarantee, however, that the
contracted works will be performed by the contractors in a proper way and within the specified timeframe. Any delays in
works and anomalies of the works may cause the investment completion to be delayed, thus causing a cost increase. The
policy used by the Partnership includes limiting these risks by signing general contractory contracts only with renown
contractors of construction works.
2.5.
Risk related to the possibility of new grounds acquisition
The successful development of activities and profitability of the Parntership depend especially on:

The ability to acquire good grounds at competitive prices,

Financial reserves for gronds acquisition,

Proper management of these reserves.
The ability to fulfill the aforementioned assumptions depends in a large extent on the condition of real estate market in
Poland. Acquisition of grounds for investment and development projects in Poland can be difficult because of the following
reasons:

Competition on thr real estate market,

Unwillingness of the banks to finance acquisition of grounds for commercial objects,

Time-consuming process of obtaining administrative permissions,

Lack of local plans of ground management plans,

Limited availability of land with proper infrastructure.
The Partnership cannot guarantee, that currently negotiated grounds acquisition for investment and development projects
will be succesful. These facts can have a significant influence on the activity, financial status or the results of the
Partnership.
In order to limit the aforementioned risk, the Partnership has created a land bank for future investment and development
projects and it has developed an internal expansion department, which is responsible for acquisition of real estates for new
investments.
2.6.
Risk related to unfavourable ground conditions
When it acquires grounds for investment and development projects, the Partnership performs a technical analysis of the
ground being obtained. However, because of limitations of this analysis, one cannot exclude that during project
implementation the Partnership encounters unforeseen factors, which can cause delays or increase the cost of preparing
the ground for the construction works, eg. ground waters, instability of lower ground layers and the need of its
replacement, terrain shape and archaeological finds. These factors can have a significant influence on the costs of
implementation of the given investment of development project, or even to render the project impossible in its planned
shape. This can have a negative influence on the timeframe of project implementation, and this in turn may have adverse
effects on the financial results of the Partnership.
2.7.
Risk related to land prices drop
Following a common practice within this field, the Partnership owns a land bank. Acquisition of grounds for this bank covers
the very acquisition itself, as well as signing pre-initial sales contracts. The Partnership owns a land bank and it has signed
some pre-initial sales contracts. Once a year, the Partnership reevaluates its investment grounds to the fair value, with the
effects of reevaluation noted in its account of gains and losses. A sudden drop of land prices will cause the value of land
alreadz owned by the Partnership to drop, and, depending on the market conditions, acquisition of grounds above the
market price of the land or a loss of prepayments, which can have a negative effect on the financial status or the results of
the Partnership.
2.8.
Risks accompanying investment implementation
Investments of the Parntership are burdened with many risks, during the predesign preparatory phase, during the design
phase, agreements with network gestors and building construction, which can include:
 Changes in media supply conditions (lengthening of a track eg. of an electric line),
 Change of road access reconstruction scale,
 Necessity to introduce changes to the products and to obtain permission from the renting entities and administration
organs,
 Inability to obtain construction permissions of housing conditions and area management plan,
 Delays in completion of construction works,
 Costs exceeding the costs assumed in the budget, caused by unfavourable weather conditions (eg. a long and frosty
winter),
 Bankruptcy of contractors or subcontractors,
Page 25
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus







Worker disputes at contractors or subcontractors,
Lack of materials or cosntruction equipment,
Accidents,
Unforeseen technical or real difficulties (eg. high level of ground waters, inadequate ground capacity and
archaeological findings),
Disputes and court proceedings related to the implemented investments, which may force the Partnership to pay
some benefits, eg. resulting from the guarantee of performing construction works,
Lack of possibility to obtain persmissions enabling a building(s) release for use or other necessary permissions,
Changes in legal regulations on ground usage, etc.
Whenever one of the above events happens, it may cause delays in investment completion, thus also an increase of the
implementation costs, blockade of assets invested in ground acquistion, and in some cases – it can make impossible to
finish the projects.
Each of these circumstances can have in turn a significant negative effect on the activity, financial condition or results of the
Partnership. In order to minimize the aforementioned risk, the Partnership performs technical and legal analyses of grounds
acquired for future investment and development projects.
2.9.
Risk related to administrative decisions
The Partnership cannot guarantee that particular permissions, approvals or agreements required for current or future
investments obtained by the Parntership, or that any current or future permissions, approvals or agreements will not be
revoked.
The inability to obtain such permissions, approvals or agreements or revoking thereof may negatively influence the ability
of the Partnership to perform or to finish current or new development or investment projects. It can have a serious
negative effect on the activity, financial status and results of the Partnership.
2.10. Risk related to the responsibility for environmental protection
According to the Polish law, the entities using grounds, on which hazardous substances or other contaminations are
present, can be obliged to clear the ground or to pay penalties for the contamination, or have the responsibility executed in
some other ways. The assessement of risk of reparation claims, of costs of recultivation and administrative penalties
payment is an important element of legal and technical analysis performed by the Partnership as a part of ground
acquisition for future investments. However, we cannot exclude a possibility, that the Partnership will be obliged to pay the
reparations, administrative penalties or recultivation costs resulting from environmental pollution of the grounds owned by
the Partnership. It can have a significant adverse effect on the activity, financial status or results of the Partnership. In order
to minimize this risk, the Partnership performs technical and legal analysis of grounds acquired for future investment and
development projects, aimed to potential risks related to the responsibility for environmental protection.
2.11. Risk related to leaving of people occupying the key positions within the Partnership
The Partnership depends on the people occupying managerial positions, especially on the Board members. People present
in the Partnership Board have vast experience gained on the Polish real estate market and experience in Partnership
management. If any of the Board members had left, it would have negatively influenced the ability of the Partnership to
perform its activities, which in turn could influence its activity, financial status of the results. The Partnership intends to
limit this risk by introducing managerial options or other instruments of rewarding for the managerial personnel in order to
keep the people occupying the key positions within the Partnership.
2.12. Risk related to work accidents at contractors
Eventhough the Partnership usually is not directly responsible for work accidents, which can happen at contractors
performing construction works at the construction sites of the Partnership, such accidents may cause delays of investment
or development projects, thus they may also cause a cost increase of their implementation. It can have a significant impact
on the activity, financial status or results of the Partnership. In order to limit this risk, the Partnership signs such constracts
with the contractors, which guarantee a timely completion of the works under the condition of high penalty clauses.
2.13. Risk related to financial leverage
In order to finance its activities, the Partnership uses loans. The Partnership cannot guarantee, that it will be able to pay the
interest and to fulfill other obligations resulting from the loan contracts. If the Partnership is not be able to obtain
additional funding according to its expectations, it might be forced to change its strategy, limit its growth and refinancing of
subject obligations. If the Partnership will not be able to refinance such obligations, the payments may become wholly or
partially and immediately executable and the Partnership may need to sell some of its assets in order to pay these
obligations. It may have a significant, unfavourable effect on the activity, material or financial status of the Partnership or
on its results. In order to minimize this risk, the Partnership constantly monitors debt levels and the possibilities of loan
obligations regulation.

2.14. Risk related to bankruptcy of the Partnership or of its dependent entities
In the case of Partnership’s bankruptcy, its financial, investment and commercial creditors will be entitled to satisfy their
credit from the assets of the Partnership. If the dependent entities are bankrupt, then the creditors will be entitled to use
their guarantees. A huge part of the Partnership’s real estates, a part of its current and future credits, as well as some
shares of dependent entites form the financial security of the Partnership and its dependent entities and it is encumbered
with mortgages or other security measures. In the case of Partnership’s bankruptcy (or of its dependent entity) it is highly
probable that a large part of its assets will be spent on satisfying the claims of the creditors, thus the ability of the
Partnership to generate income will be severely limited. In order to limit this risk, the Partnership constantly monitors its
financial viability and time flow of executable payments and credits and it takes the actions of time and amount adjustment
of income with monetary income in order to minimize the risk of the Partnership’s bankruptcy.
2.15. Risk related to reprivatisation
As a consequence of nationalisation, introduced in Poland after World War II, many real estates owned by people or legal
entities were acquired by the Treasury of the State, and often the law was violated. As a part of economic transformation
after the 1989, many expropriated owners of the real estates or their legal successors have taken legal steps in order to
regain lost estates or to obtain reparations. Not all reprivatisation claims are regulated by law, however. According to the
effective regulation, real estate ex-owners or their legal successors can apply to the public administration organs for a
decision revoking the nationalising decision. Therefore it cannot be excluded, that in the future claims to the real estates
acquired by the Partnership will be raised. This fact can have a negative influence on the financial situation and results of
the Partnership. In order to limit this risk, before the ground is acquired, the Partnership tries to study all matters related to
the probability of raising a reclamation claim.
2.16. Risk related to the lack of audit committee
th
th
On June 6 , 2009, the Act of May 7 , 2009, on experts and their self-governing bodies, entities approved for studying
o
financial reports and on public supervision (Dz. U. 2009, N 77, pos. 649) went into effect, according to which, an audit
committee should be included in the structures of an Issuing Party of securities approved for circulation on a regulated
market of a EU member state, which consists of at least 3 members, elected from the Supervisory Board members. At least
one member of the audit committee should meet requirements specified in the aforementioned Act and should be
qualified in accounting or financial revision. Currently, no audit committee is present in the structures of the Issuing Party
and no member of the Supervisory Board meets the requirements defined in the said Act. Because of the above, the Issuing
Party shall recommend an election of a Supervisory Board member who meets these requirements and an election of an
audit committee during the next General Assembly.
2.17. Risk related to the resolution of the general partnership of June 22nd, 2007, on the
application of MSR/MSSF to consolidated financial reports
nd
On June 22 , 2007, the partners of the general partnetship – the legal predecessor of the Issuing Party – by taking into
account their intention of transforming the general partnership into a stock partnership, and later – an application for
approval of share circulation on a regulated market managed by the Stock Exchange in Warsaw and an application for
approval of an issue prospectus by the Financial Supervision Committee (KNF) related to the public offer of shares, made a
resolution on preparing consolidated financial reports according to MSR/MSSF. The resolution was made before the
transformation of legal form of the Issuing Party from a general partnership into a stock parntership and before the
resolution on approval of Issuing Party’s shares for circulation on a regulated market took place. Because of the above,
there is a risk, which does not generate any negative financial effects on the Issuing Party, especially related to tax
obligations, that the accounting policy applied by the Issuing Party, related to the standards used for preparation of
consolidated financial reports of the Issuing Party for the years 2007 and 2008, can be improper. An expert studying these
consolidated financial reports gave a positive opinion based on his studies. In order to minimize this risk factor, an
th
Extraordinary General Assembly, calling upon a resolution mentioned in the introduction, made a resolution on April 13 ,
2010, on the application of MSR/MSSF for consolidated financial reports of the Issuing Party Capital Group, including
consolidated financial reports for 2009.
3. Risk factors related to the investment in Offered Shares
3.1.
Risk related to the possibility of cancellation or waiver of the Public Offer
The General Assembly can make a resolution on cancellation of Series C Shares offer or on waiver of the Series C Shares
offer before the Issue Prospectus is published and it can can make a resolution on withdrawal of Series C Shares offer after
the Issue Prospectus is published, because of important reasons.
These reasons, among others, may be classified as important:
 Sudden changes in economic or political situation of the country, region or world, which could not be foreseen before
the subscriptions were started and which could have a significant negative effect on the implementation of the Offer
or on the activity of the Issuing Party,
Page 27
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus



Sudden change in economic or legal environment of the Issuing party which could not be foreseen before the
subscriptions were started and which could have a significant negative effect on the current activity of the Issuing
Party,
Sudden change in financial, economic or legal state of the Issuing Party, which would have or could have a negative
effect on the activity of the Issuing Party and which could not be foreseen before the subscriptions were started,
Other circumstances which would render implementation of the Offer impossible or harmful for the interests of the
Issuing Party or the Investors.
In a case of potential waiver from the implementation of the Offer during its implementaion, return of assets paid by the
Investors will be performed by the method specified by the Investor in the Subscription Form, within 14 days after the
Issuing Party’s announcement of Offer waiver. The return of the aforementioned amounts will be done „as is”, with no
interests or reparations.
In a case of potential cancellation of Offer implementation, a proper announcement will be given to the general public, by
making an annex to this Prospectus accessible, which has to be approved by KNF. This annex will be given to the genereal
public in the same way the Prospectus was published.
The Offer is not planned to be suspended.
3.2.
Risk related to ineffective Issue of Series C Shares
The Issue of Series C Shares may not come into effect, if:
1) at least 1 Series C Share is not subscribed and properly paid, as regulated by the rules defined in the Prospectus,
2) the Board does not submit a resolution on increasing company capital by issuing Series C Shares to the proper register
Court within 12 months from the date of Prospectus’ approval and not later than one month from the date of
allocation of Series C Shares,
3) a decision of the register Court refusing to register the increase of company capital by issuing Series C Shares comes
into effect.
The registration of the increase of company capital by issuing Series C Shares by the Court depends also on the submission
of a statement defining the amount of the increase of company capital by issuing Series C Shares covered by valid
subscriptions by the Board. This statement, according to art. 310 CCC in conjunction with art. 431 § 7 CCC, should define the
amount of company caital after the public subscription for Series C Shares is finished, within the limits defined in the
resolution on the increase of company capital by Issuing Series C Shares. If the Board does not submit the aforementioned
statement or if the statement is incorrect, it would render the registration of company capital increase impossible, thus the
Issue of Series C Shares would not take place.
If the Issue of Series C shares does not take place, the refund of payments made for Series C Shares will be done within the
timeframe and rules described in p. 5.1 of the Prospectus. The Investors are reminded that the refund will not include any
interest rates and reparations.
3.3.
Risk related to claim of revoking the resolution on the increase of company capital by issuing
Series C Shares
According to art. 422 CCC, a resolution of the General Assembly which contradicts the Status or the good manners and
threatens the interests of the Partnership, or which is made with the goal of harming a shareholder, can be claimed as a
claim of revoking the resolution, made against the Partnership. Additionally, art. 425 CCC allows to charge a resolution of
the General Assembly with a claim of making such a resolution ineffective. The Partnership has taken all necessary actions
in order to secure the concordance of resolutions on the increase of company capital by issuing Series C Shares with the
law, the Status, good manners and the interest of the Partnership. The Partnership cannot guarantee, however, that no
aforementioned claims will be made.
3.4.
Risk related to PDA quotation of Series C
The Issuing Party intends to introduce PDA of Series C Shares to the GPW as soon as possible. However, there is a risk, that
because of procedural reasons, PDA of Series C will not be introducted to stock exchange circulation at all, which would
mean, that the investors cannot dispose of allocated securities on the stock exchange before the date of introduction of
Series C Shares to the GPW.
The investors are reminded, that if the Issue does not take place during the PDA of Series C circulation, the Investors will be
refunded only with the issue price for each PDA, according to the rules described in p. 5.1 of the Prospectus, without any
interest rates or reparations. It might mean, that the Investors who will have PDA of Series C purchased at GPW at a price
which is higher then the issue price of Offered Shares, that they suffer losses.
3.5.
Risk related to refusal of introduction of shares of the Issuing Party to the stock exchange
circulation or to a delay thereof
Page 28
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
Introduction of Rights to Series C Shares, and then – to the Offered Shares and Series B Shares – to the stock exchange
circulation, requires the following decisions to be obtained:
 KDPW decision about accepting Rights to Series C Shares, Offered Shares and Series B Shares for depositon and
granting them with a code,
 Stock Exchange Board decision on approval of Rights to Series C Shares, Offered Shares and Series B Shares for stock
exchange circulation,
 Decision of Register Court on registration of the Issue of Series C Shares (in the case of introduction of Offered Shares
and Series B Shares to stock exchange circulation),
 Stock Exchange Decision on introduction of Rights to Series C Shares, and later – Offered Shares and Series B Shares –
to stock exchange circulation.
According to §2 of the Resolution of the Minister of Finances on October 14th, 2005, on detailed conditions which must be
met by the official stock quotation market and the entities issuing shares to this market (Dz. U. 2005, N o 206, pos. 1712) a
company managing the official stock quotation market should assure, that only those shares are approved for circulation on
this market, which meet the following requirements:
1) They have been accepted for circulation on a regulated market,
2) Their disposal is not limited,
3) All issued shares of a given type have been included in an application to a proper organ of the company managing the
official stock quotation market,
4) The product of number of shares included in their application and their market price, and if that price cannot be
defined – own capital of the Issuing Party, equal (in zlotys) at least 1 000 000 Euro
5) At the date of application submission, such a dispersion of shares included in the application exists, that it assures a
flow of shares.
On the other hand, according to § 3 of the aforementioned Resolution, shares are accepted for circulation on the official
quotation market, if:
1) The company issuing shares has announced, according to the rules specified in separate regulations, financial reports
with an opinion of an entity approved for their analysis, for at least three years preceeding the date of application
submission, or
2) It is backed by a justified interest of the company or of the investors, and the company has announced to the general
public, in a way specified in separate regulations, information which allow the investors to estimate the financial and
economical state of the company and risks related to purchase of shares included in the application.
A delay or a refusal from any of the decision making entities may cause a disturbance or interruption of introduction of
Shares or Rights to Shares of the Issuing Party to the stock exchange circulation.
Additionally, according to § 11 of GPW Status, the Stock Exchange Board can revoke to resolution on accepting securities
for stock exchange circulation, if within 6 months from the date of the resolution, the application for introduction of these
securities to stock exchange circulation is not submitted.
3.6.
Risk of indequate dispersion of shares introduced to circulation on the regulated market
One of the criteria which have to be met by shares, in order to accept them for circulation on the official quotation marker
th
is the dispersion share, which allows their flow. According to the resolution of the Minister of Finances on October 14 ,
2005 on detailed conditions which must be met by the official stock quotation market and the entities issuing shares to this
o
market (Dz. U. 2005, N 206, pos. 1712), a dispersion assures shares flow, if the investors (where each of them holds no
more than 5% of the total GA votes), hold: (a) at least 25% of the company’s shares included in the application or (b) at
least 500 000 of the company’s shares with total value in zlotys not less than 17 mln Euro, according to the last issue price
o
th
or a sale price. According to the resolution N 14/1220/2009 of the Supervisory Board of GPW dated May 20 , 2009, on the
change of GPW Status, which came into effect on the same day, that in a case of approval of shares for stock exchange
circulation, these shares should also meet the following requirements: (a) the product of all shares of the issuing party and
the prognosed market prices of these shares, and if a determination of this price is impossible – own capital of the issuing
party, should equal (in zlotys) at least 5 000 000 Euro, (b) the shareholders (each of which is entitled to less than 5% of the
votes during a General Assembly of the Issuing Party), should hold at least 15% of shares included in the application for
approval for stock exchange circulation and 100 000 of shares included in the application for approval for stock exchange
circulation with a value of at least 1 mln Euro, calculated according to the last sale price or issue price.
There is a risk that Series C Shares will not be approved for stock market circulation, because of the possibility of ownership
structure formation and of market value of the Issuing Party’s shares in a way which does not meet the criteria listed in the
o
resolution N 14/1220/2009 of the GPW Supervisory Board.
If the conditions for approval for circulation on the main market are not met, the Issuing Party will submit proper
applications for approval for introdcution of the securities on the parallel market.
Page 29
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
We also have to note, according to the opinion of the Stock Board Exchange regarding detailed conditions of approval and
th
introduction of some financial instruments to the stock exchange, dated September 12 , 2006, the decisions regarding the
application of Issuing Parties for approval and introduction of rights to new issue shares and to existing shares are made
after a detailed analysis, including in particular the amount and the structure of the offer, ownership structure, possible sale
bans and other circumstances related to the application. Because of the above, one has to take into account the possibility
of introduction of existing shares to the quotations taking place not earlier than the registration of the increase of company
capital.
3.7.
Risk related to exclusion of Series B Shares, Series C Shares and Series C PDA from circulation
on the regulated market
One cannot be absolutely sure, that the shares of the Issuing Party will not be subjected to such a condition in the future.
Currently there are no reasons to expect such a turn of events. If the Issuing Party does not fulfill its duties, orders and bans
forced or provided in specific regulations of the Act on Public Offers or of the Resolution on the Prospectus, or if it does not
fulfill them properly, the KNF can:
a) Made a decision of excluding the securities from the regulated marked circulation, for a specific period or
permanently, or
b) Give a penalty of up to 1.000.000 PLN (taking into account the financial situation of the entity subjected to the
penalty), or
c) Use both aforementioned sanctions simultaneously.
Additionally, according to art. 20 p. 3 of the Act on Circulation, the company managing the regulated market excludes
securities or other financial instruments specified by the KNF (on the request of KNF) then, if their circulation significantly
threatens proper functioning of the regulated market or circulation security on this market, of if it violated the interests of
the investors.
According to § 31 of the GPW Status, the GPW Board excludes financial instruments from the stock exchange circulation, if:
(i) their disposability has become limited, (ii) on the request of KNF submitted according to the regulations of the Act on
Circulation, (iii) in a case when their dematerialisation is revoked, or (iv) in a case of their exclusion from circulated on the
regulated market by the proper supervisory organ. Besides, the GPW Board can exclude financial instruments from the
stock exchange circulation according to § 31 p. 2 of the GPW Status.
One cannot be absolutely sure, that such situation will not take place in the future in the case of Shares. Currently, there
are no reasons to expect such a turn of events.
3.8.
Risk related to the possibility of suspending circulation of Series B Shares, Series C Shares
and Series C PDA on the GPW
The Stock Exchange Board can, on the basis of § 30 p. 1 of the Stock Exchange Status, suspend the circulation of Issuing
Party Shares for the period of up to three months:
 If an application of the Issuing Party has been submitted,
 If it decides, that it is required by the interests and security of the circulation participants,
 If the Issuing Party violates GPW rules.
According to § 30 p. 2 of the Stock Exchange Status, the Stock Exchange Board suspends shares circulation for the period of
up to one months on the request of KNF submitted according to the regulations of the Act on Circulation. According to art.
20 p. 2 of the Act on Circulation, in a case, when the circulation of particular securities or other financial instruments is
performed in circumstances indicating a risk of threatening proper functioning of the regulated market or of the security of
circulation on this market, or of threatening the interests of investors, the company managing the regulated market
suspends the circulation of these intstruments on the request of the KNF, for a period of up to one month.
On the basis of art. 96 p. 1 of the Act on Offer, the right of temporal or permanent exclusion of shares from the stock
exchange circulation belongs also to the KNF, in a case when the duties of the Issuing Party referred to by art. 96 p. 1 of the
Act on Offer are not fulfilled or are not fulfilled properly. The KNF consults the GPW before making such decisions.
3.9.
Risk related to fluctuations of quotations of the Issuing Party Shares and Series C PDA
The price of Shares in the Public Offer should not constitute a solid base for conclusions regarding their quotations after the
end of the Public Offer.
Quotations of the Shares and Series C PDA may undergo large fluctuations because of many events and factors, which
cannot be influenced by the Issuing Party. Such events and factors should include, eg. changes of financial results of the
Issuing Party, changes in profitability estimations made by the analysts, comparison of perspectives of different branches of
economy, changes in legal regulations influencing the situation of the Issuing Party and the general condition of the
economy.
Page 30
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
Stock exchange markets occassionally experience large fluctuations of prices and circulation volumes, which can also have a
negative influence on the market price of Shares or Series C PDA. In order to optimise the return rate, the investors may be
forced to make long-term investments in the Shares, since the Shares may be inappropriate as short-term investments.
The approval of Shares and Series C PDA for circulation on the GPW should not be interpreted as a guarantee of their flow.
In a case, when a proper turnover level will not be reached or maintained, it can have a negative effect on the viability and
prices of Shares or Series C PDA. Even if the proper flow level of Shares and Series C PDA is reached, the market price of
Shares can be lower than the Issue Price/Sale Price.
3.10. Risk related to the possibility of the ban of start or of the order to stop the Public Offer and
of the ban of start or order to stop the approval of shares for circulation on the regulated
market by the KNF
According to art. 16 and 17 of the Act on Public Offer, in a case of violation or a justified suspicion of violation of law related
to the public offer, the subscription or the sales performed on the basis of this offer or related to the application of the for
permission or introduction of securities for circulation on the regulated market on the territory of the Republic of Poland by
the issuing party, the introducing party or other entities participating in this offer in the name or on the order of the Issuing

application for approval or introduction of securities to the circulation on a regulated market, for a period of
no longer than 10 working days,
b) Order to ban the start of a public offer, a subscription or sale, or to stop them, or order to stop the
application for approval or introduction of securities to the circulation on a regulated market, or
c) Publish, (at the expense of the Issuing Party) an information about an action violating the law, related to the
public offer, the subscription or sale or to application for approval or introduction of securities to the
circulation on a regulated market.
The KNF may apply means provided in point b) and c) above more than one time in relation to the public offer, the
subscription or sale or to application for approval or introduction of securities to the circulation on a regulated market.
One also has to note that according to art. 18 of the Act on Public Offer, the KNF may apply means listed in art. 16 or 17,
also in a case when it can be concluded from the contents of documents or information submitted to the KNF or released to
the general public, that:
a) The public offer, the subscription or sales of the securities made on the basis of this offer or their approval
for circulation on the regulated market wouls significantly violate the interests of the investors,
b) There are hints, which according to the law may lead to legal cessation of the Issuing Party,
c) The activity of the Issuing party was or is perfromed with a striking violation of legal regulations and this
violation can significantly infuence evaluation of securities of the Issuing Party or which may lead to legal
cessation or bankruptcy of the Issuing Party according to the law, or
d) The legal status of the securities is not concordant with law, and according to these regulations there is a risk
that these securities are acknowledged as invalid or having a legal defect influencing their evaluation.
If the KNF is notified by a proper organ of a country assuming that the Issuing Party, which has the Republic of Poland as its
country of origin, or a financial institution acting in the public offer in the name or on the order of such Issuing Party
violates the law effective in this country, related to the public offer or to approval for circulation on the regulated market
on the basis of Issue Prospectus approved by the KNF, the KNF can:
a) Order the Issuing Party to stop violating the legal regulations on the territory of this country or
b) Apply means defined in art. 16 or art. 17.
3.11. Risk related to violation of legal regulations or to a justified suspicion of violation thereof by
the Issuing Party or by the entities participating in the public offer
According to art. 16 of the Act on Public Offer, in a case of violation or a justified suspicion of violation of law related to the
public offer, the subscription or the sales performed on the basis of this offer by the Issuing Party, the introducing party or
other entities participating in this offer in the name or on the order of the Issuing Party, or in a case of a justified suspicion
that such a violation can take place, the KNF can order to ban the start of the public offer, the subscription or sales or to
stop them for a period of up to 10 working days or to ban the start of the public offer, the subscription or sales or to stop
them, or publish (at the expense of the Issuing Party or the introducing party) an information about an action violating the
law, related to the public offer, the subscription or sale. The KNF may apply multiple means listed in the above sentence,
related to the public offer, the subscription or sales.
In a case of violation or a justified suspicion of violation of law related to the application for approval or introduction of
securities to circulation on the regulated market by the Issuing Party, the introducing party or other entities participating in
this offer in the name or on the order of the Issuing Party, or in a case of a justified suspicion that such a violation can take
place, the KNF can order, on the behalf of art. 17 of the Act on Offer, to ban approval or introduction of securities to
Page 31
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
circulation on the regulated market for a period of up to 10 working days or to ban approval or introduction of securities to
circulation on the regulated market and publish (at the expense of the Issuing Party or the introducing party) an
information about an action violating the law, related to approval or introduction of securities to circulation on the
regulated market. The KNF may apply multiple means listed in the above sentence, related to approval or introduction of
securities to circulation on the regulated market.
One also has to note that according to art. 18 of the Act on Public Offer, the KNF may apply means listed in art. 16 or 17,
also in a case when it can be concluded from the contents of documents or information submitted to the KNF or released to
the general public, that the public offer, the subscription or sale of securities or approval thereof for circulation on the
regulated market would pose a significant threat to the interests of the Investors, creation of the Issuing Party took place
with a serious violation of effective legal regulations, or the legal status of the securities contradicts the law.
One cannot entirely exclude that such a risk exists, which is related to the Public Offer covered in this Prospectus and
related to the application for approval o introduction of the securities to circulation on the regulated market.
3.12. Risk related to refusal of the annex to the Prospectus
According to art. 51 p. 4 of the Act on Offer, the KNF may refuse the annex to the Prospectus in a case when its form or
contents do not conform to the requirements specified in legal regulations. By refusing the annex to the Prosceptus,the
KNF orders to ban the start of the Public Offer, to stop it or to hold the introduction of securities to the circulation on the
regulated market on the GPW na on the basis of Issue Prospectus related to the securities covered by this offer or covered
an approval for circulation.
3.13. Risk related to subscription for Offered Shares and to subscription payment
The Issuing Party reminds the Subscribers that the Subscribers are responsible for all consequences resulting from an
inappropriate filling in the Offered Shares subscription form, including lack of shares allocation.
Additionally, lack of payment for Offered Shares within the specified timeframe or an incomplete payment results in lack of
Offered Shares allocation.
3.14. Risk related to prolongation of subscription deadline
According to the Prospectus’ contents, the Board of the Issuing Party holds the right to extend the subscription deadline if
the total number of Offered Shares covered by subscriptions will be lower than the total number of Offered Shares, but this
deadline cannot be later that three months from the starting date of the Public Offer, it also cannot be later than the
validity date of the Prospectus. This causes a risk of monetary assets freeze for the investors, who will have made payments
for Offered Shares.
3.15. Risk related to not fulfilling or violation of duties of the Issuing Party, defined by legal
regulations and by the GPW Status
In a case, when the Issuing Party does not fulfill its duties or fulfills the duties inappropriately – the duties are specified in
the Act on Offer, art. 14 p. 2, art. 15 p. 2, art. 37 p. 4 and 5, art. 38 p. 1 and 5, art. 39 p. 1, art. 42 p. 1, art. 44 p. 1, art. 45,

On a request of the Issuing Party,
If the Issuing Party has been declared bankrupt or if a court dismisses a bankruptcy claim because of lack of asstes of
the Issuing Party, which could cover the cost of the proceeding,

6. General activity profile
6.1.
6.1.1.
Basic activity
Basic fields and types of activity
The Issuing Party performs an investment – development activity on the domestic market, which is obtaining real estates
(grounds) and housing them with commercial objects destined for rent or for sale.
The Isssuing Party executes its activity with a Capital Group, on its own and through the intended companies. It is mainly
resulting from the requirements of banks financing the development projects of the Capital Group of the Issuing Party.
During the implementation of projects within the field of real estate market, the banks require that financing of the
investment projects is made by the companies intended for specified projects, as it allows to minimize the investment risk.
The activity subject of the aforementioned company should be limited to activities related to ownership and management
of the real estate, there are also limits regarding the employment in such a company. The rental contracts signed are longterm contracts and they guarantee the companies a stable income. The real estates must have their legal status regulated
and the object itself should have high technical standard.
Such a construction allows a separation of monetary flow related to a given project from monetary flows related to other
projects along with a higher level of financial leverage when financing a project, thus a higher level of bank loans available
to the intentional company than to its shareholders. Additionally, bankruptcy of the intentional company as a result of
project failure does not mean the bankruptcy of its shareholders.
The Capital Group of the Issuing Party focuses its current and future activity on implementation of four categories of
investment projects within the real estate market, namely – construction and rental or sale of the objects:

Large area commercial – service centres,

Uptown commercial galleries,

Commercial objects – commercial parks,

Highly profitable, short-term investment projects.
6.1.1.1. Development strategy
The strategy predicts development on the real estate market with profits for the shareholders, business partners and local
communities. The basis of this strategy is the long-term trust in the range of all entities engaged in the implementaion of
each project.
Thanks to knowledge and experience gained, the Issuing Party has specialised in design and construction of large area
commercial objects and commercial galleries and parks in medium-size cities.
Besides the product diversification, the Group of the Issuing Party also manages a geographic diversification. The list of
cities, where the Group of the Issuing Party has implemented, implements, or plans to implement its products in all segmets

total 500,1 mln PLN. The other part of expenses on investment, except for the capital obtained via shares issue, will come

6.1.1.3. Organisation of the business activity of the Group

Acquisition of information about the partners and grounds for investments.
The number of projects implemented throughout the country in the period of 12 years of business activity led to
development of a high operation efficiency of the Issuing Party in the fields of grounds acquisition and investment
implementation.
The issuing Party obtains information and searches for land for future investmets, using a procedure worked out
throughout the years:

On its own, by the expansions department; in the case of large area commercial objects, this acction is additionally
directed by information obtained from the main operators (Carrefour, Leroy Merlin, Metro, OBI, REAL, Aldi,
Biedronka), regarding the localisation of future objects,

Obtaining grounds from the aforementioned companies during acquisition and finishing the ground mergers for future
investments,

Offers made by permanently cooperating real estate agents and other entities, which have real estate trade as a part
of their business activity, eg. trustees, design offices etc.

Other business partners,

acquisition of attractive grounds for investments are possible thanks to an experienced team of specialists, who have vast
knowledge related to the real estate market.
2.
Investment capacity verification process.
The optimal orgaisational structure of the company and mechanisms of ground classification for investments, worked out
throught the years of the Partnership’s activity resulted in a high analytical and decision-related efficiency within the field of
ground acquisition.
All decisions regarding purchases of real estates are preceeded by verification procedures. These procedures are
implemented in two variants, depending on the type of investment, which will be implenented on the analysed grounds.
Page 51
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
2.1. Large area objects.
The verification procedure for large area objects:

Verification of implementation possibility for the particular investment type,

Examination of legal state of the real estate,

Acquisition of basic information about the real estate.
On the basis of aforementioned information, an information memorandum is created for one of the main operators eg.
Carrefour, Leroy Merlin, OBI, Real, etc.

of the investment are agree with the operator, such as:

Future rental area,

Rental fee and technical maintenance fees,

Rental contract period,

Range of works finances by each of the Parties.
Once the parameters of the investment project are agree, the Issuing Party brings the parties to sign these effects in the 2
stage:
st

1 stage – pre-initial contract of cessation of ownership rights or perpetual use rights,
nd

2 stage – signing the final contract once the suspending conditions are met.
nd
The above procedure guarantees safety of implementiation and income from these types of investments.
If no acceptance and positive evaluation of the operator are obtained, then the materials related to the real estate are
archivised for further, potential use in the future.
2.2. Commercial galleries.
The procedure of real estate localisation evaluation for the needs of commercial galleries includes:

Verification of implementation possibility for the particular investment type,

Geological, geophysical studies, studies of ground contamination, green area cataloguing,

Vefirication of entries in mortgage registers,

Determination of media availability (water, electricity, gas, etc.),

Negotiating, preparation of contract projects by the legal department,

Initial design works, preparation of architectural concept with determination of the most important parameters of the
investment and potential risks, which may raise the costs of investment implementation,

Project analysis in relation to potential renting parties,

Preparing an investment profitability analysis, budgeting, preparation of a business plan,
Once the parameters of the investment project are agree, the Issuing Party brings the parties to sign these effects in the 2
stage:
st

1 stage – pre-initial contract of cessation of ownership rights or perpetual use rights,
nd

2 stage – signing the final contract once the suspending conditions are met.
3. Investment implementation.
nd
Once the real estate has been secured, the Issuing Party takes next actions in order to implement the investment:




The choice of design office, preparing the architectural – construction project, together with obtaining necessary
permissions,
Commercialisation of commercial areas,
Financing management,
The choice of the general contractor who performs and coordinates the entirety of construction works.
An integral part of the investment process in area commercialisation, i.e. obtaining renting parties for the area in the
implemented object. The commercialisation process is performed by the Partnership itself, by the commercialisation
department.
A team of employees of the Capital Group of the Issuing Party also works on the commercialisation process, with the team
being responsible for implementation of the particular investment project, including a supervision inspector, specalists in
the particular fields (sanitary, electric), an architect, who supervises and coordinated works performed by the
subcontractors.
The choice of general contractor is made on the basis of an auction, for which the biggest companies in the domestic
market are invited, including: Budimex Dromex S.A., Skanska S.A., Erbud S.A., Budus S.A., Warbud S.A., Mostostal Warszawa
S.A. etc.
A contract is signed with the general contractor (chosen in a multistep auction), which regulates the deadlines of particular
investment stages and directly related schedule of payments.
Page 52
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
The Capital Group of the Issuing Party itself engages subcontractors for particular investment projects, which are supervised
by the supervision department of the Capital Group of the Issuing Party, or by the general contractor.
In both cases described above, the Board of the Issuing Party, together with subsidiaries – investment development
department, manager of the investment project, and if there is a need to – with a supervisor of the project acting in the
name of the bank which finances the investment, provide a complex supervision of the investment.
4.
Marketing and sales.
When the construction starts, the Capital Group of the Issuing Party starts its marketing actions related to advertising and
marketing of the implemented commercial object. This range of actions is related only to own objects of the Partnership.
5.
Object management.
The last element controlled by the Capital Group of the Issuing Party after the construction and release of the object for
use, is an independent management of the object. In the case of uptown galleries, the Capital Group of the Issuing Party
predicts that the objects implemented now and in the future will be managed independently by itself, because of positive
and measurable financial effects obtained with management of Galeria Piastów in Legnica and Twierdza Commercial Centre
in Kłodzko.

Customers in this group rent a smaller area, in the range from 100 to 1 000 sq.m., but renting fees are significantly higher
than in the first group, as they oscillate in the range between 10 and 40 EUR/sq.m. This parameter significantly increases
the average rental fee obtained on the area in a particular object.
3. Local renting parties.
Another group of customers is formed by companies and businessmen functioning within the particular town, where the
investment is located. These companies, having a solid position on the local market, want to increase their income and
prestige by renting area in attractive localisations offered by the Capital Group of the Issuing Party.
4.
Customers in short-term translations.
A separate group of customers, important for the activity of the Capital Group of the Issuing Party, are the companies,
which form parties in short-term transactions. A vast part of analysed offers and investment projects along with the
knowledge of the market have created a possibility to make income from implementation of relatively fast transactions,
namely, preparations of real estates for investments and sales.
This options include:

Ground purchase,

Implementation of required administrative procedures and agreements,

Obtaining decisions on the conditions of housing and area management or a permission for construction works,

Ground sale.
Average time of implementation of this type transaction is 3 – 10 months. This transaction type is characterised by low level
of own assets engaged and a high profitability.
The group of customers who took part in this type of transactions, include:

Carrefour Polska Sp. z o.o.,

Leroy Merlin Polska Sp. z o.o.,

Jeronimo Martins Dystrybucja Sp. z o.o.,

Superhobby Market Budowlany Sp. z o.o.,

Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
If favourable market conditions take place, the Issuing Party does not exclude returns to the aforementioned investment
projects, according to agreements and concepts possessed.
6.1.1.7. Other future projects
Because of current, negative economic conditions, including also the developers, the Issuing Party is very cautious with
estimations of new investment projects. A strong competitions which took place in the period of 2007-2008 led to creation
of many development projects. Becasue of this fact and of difficulties in obtaning funds for investments, projects partially
prepared for implementation have appeared on the market.
Taking into account the above, the Issuing Party plans purchases of investment projects or grounds only in the cases of a
very attractive ground price or if a valid local spatial development plan for the ground exists, significant technical
agreements and rental contracts are signed with the main renting party.
Other case, when the Issuing Party allows the possibility of ground purchase and engaging financial assets in preparation of
an investment project is purchase of ground indicated by the partner as potential locations of commercial objects. As of the
date of Prospectus creation, the Issuing Party cooperates within the latter scheme with ALDI Sp. z o.o., OBI Sp. z o.o. and
Makro Cash and Carry Polska S.A. The next step may involve implementation of an object with a rental or sale option, with
an assumption that favourable financial conditions have been negotiated.
6.1.1.8. Land bank
According to its strategic assumptions, the Group of the Issuing Party has created a land bank throughout Poland by
purchasing attractive ground which allow implementation of large area commercial objects, commercial galleries,
apartment investments and office-service investments, as well as implementation of short-term investment projects. As of
the date of Prospectus creation, the Group of the Issuing Party is an owner or a perpetual user of grounds with a total area
of about 686 000 sq.m.
6.1.2.
New products and services
The Group of the Issuing Party has not introduced any now products and services in the period from 2006 to the date of the
Prospectus approval, besides those described in p. 6.1.1.2 of the „Registration Document”.

Market descriptions
Malls (hypermarkets and supermarkets).
Significant changes on the Polish retail sales market have taken place in the last years. Since the beginning of the 1990s,
supply of commercial area has increasd and in 2010 it covers an increasing number of international retail sales networks,
along with commercial places of high standards. Foreign trade networks, investors and developers start their activity in
Poland in order to access a new and less saturated market. According to this, foreign entities form a large part of owners of
large area commercial centres. Despite increasing concentration of sales and increasing importance of modern network
trade, the characteristic of the market still is a dominant role of shops with sale area less than 100 sq.m. The dominant role
of small shops is still an evidence of the fact, that the majority of Poles still prefer doing shopping in local shops, Despite this
fact, the expansion of large commercial networks goes on. The hypermarkets are located mostly in cities with the biggest
number of citizens, while supermarket owners place their shops in middle-sized towns.
First international supermarket networks started in Poland in the beginning of the 1990s. These were trademarks such, as
Billa, Rema 1000 or Globi. In the middle of the previous decade, expansion of the biggest international hypermarket
networks, such as Auchan, Carrefour, Geant, Real or Tesco, has started.
rd
In the 3 quarter of 2009 there were over 200 hypermarkets in Poland, located mostly in complex commercial centres
along with a few thousands of supermarkets and food discounts. In the sector of large area food shops, the period of
dynamic expansion is ending now. In the hypermarket sector, only foru huge players remained (Auchan, Carrefour, Real i
Tesco). The main entities in th supermarket segment are Carrefour, Tesco and Kaufland as well as delicatessen Piotr i Paweł
and Alma. In the discount segment, Lidl and Biedronka dominate. The supermarket networks start to verify their locations
and formats – missed investments will be closed and the new ones – thoroughly studied and selected. In 2009, in the food
sector, the objects of the Piotr i Paweł networks in Galeria Malta in Poznań, Carrefour in the Twierdza Kłodzko Centre and
Alma in Renoma in Wrocław and in Cuprum Arena in Lubin have opened. Further development of food shops sector in
Poland will be limited mainly to supermarkets and small local shops. Hypermarkets will be located in suburban centres and
commercial parks. Rental fees for the area rented by hypermarkets have stabilised at the level of 6,5-8 euro/sq.m./m, and
for the supermarkets - 11-15 euro/sq.m./m. Because of limited availability of area for large area food shops, no significant
1
rental fee drops are predicted .

Commercial centres.
In the first half of 2009, in Poland almost 390 000 sq.m. of modern commercial area has been released, which equals to a
95% increase in comparison to the analogical period of 2008. The accumulation of supply is caused by entering delayed
investments started in the previous years on the market. The biggest objects finished in the period of January-June 2009 are
Galeria Malta in Poznań, Cuprum Arena in Lubin and Renoma in Wrocław. At the end of June, 2009, the reserves of modern
commercial area in Poland totalled 8 835 000 sq.m. This area included: commercial centres (72,5%), warehouses and
commercial parks (19,2%), sales centres (0,9%) and other commercial objects (7,4%). The supply of modern commercial
area in Poland is still concentrated in the eight biggest aglomerations (61,4%), however, each year brings an increase in the
rd
2
share of smaller cities (3 quarter of 2009 - 38,6%) .
In 2008, a significant intensification of developers’ activity could be noted in the medium-sized cities, e.g. in Bydgoszcz,
Białystok, Słupsk, Opole or Zielona Góra. In the four quarters of 2008, locations of this type were enriched with almost 409
000 sq.m. of commercial area, i.e. almost three times as much as in the main regional cities. Such locations are more and
more often chosen not only by Polish companies, but also by renown international trademarks, eg.: ZARA, H&M or C&A,
3
which are eager to located their shops in high-quality objects .
Despite the economic slowdown, there are still many businesses prepared to open new shops and the medium cities seem
to a natural direction of their expansion. The favourable factor of medium cities are rental fees, which are lower than in the
4
bigger cities .
The global financial crisis verifies forecasts of future supply on the market of commercial real estates. An intensive
construction activity can still be seen, as the decisions related to commercial objects constructed today have been made in
the peak of economic trends. At the end of June 2009 ca. 1 mln sq.m. of modern commercial area was still being built, with
the finish dates in the period of 2009-2010. Almost 66% of objects being constructed is located in small and medium cities
(eg. Focus– Piotrków Trybunalski and Galeria Jurajska – Częstochowa), but the investments are also performed in the
biggest aglomerations (e.g. IKEA Port in Łódź, Bonarka City Center in Kraków). It will help to retain the yearly supply of
modern commercial area in 2010 at the level of 800 000 sq.m. However, construction works of some significant trade
objects have been held (totalling ca. 280 tys. mkw.). At the date of the Issue Prospectus approval it is difficult to estimate,
which of the planned objects will be implemented, which will be delayed and which of them will be cancelled. However,
taking into account the specifics of investment processes on the real estate market, one can quite probably say that it is
safe to assume a significant drop of yearly supply after 2010.
Dynamic changes observed in the textile sector form trends within demand for the modern commercial area. On one hand,
a few of the known networks are suffering from financial problems, they seek new sources of financing and modify existing
development strategies. On the other hand, new market entries are observed along with an increased expansion of entities
in this sector, struggling to take a dominant position within the market. Until now, it has not been reflected in an increased
of empty buildings, which remain at a low level of 0-3,6%. However, the pheonomenon of secondary rental market in the
commercial centres. The difference between a stipulated rental fee and real rental fee increases, as this increase is caused
by the increase of prompts present in the full rental packages. The highest rental fees are at the main commercial streets,
where they are the level of 80-84 Euro/sq.m./month and in commercial centres, where they equal to 79-83
Euro/sq.m./month. One can also see a strong diversification of rental fee in first and second category objects.
Limited access to funding and conditions offered form the most important barrier for the development of rental market in
Poland. Its development has been also negatively influenced by strong fluctuations of Euro currency rate related to PLN.
Total rental costs increased even by 30-40%, because the contracts are signed in Euro and the payments are made in PLN,
according to the valid rate on the date of invoicing. The commercial networks do not stay idle in this situation and they take
different actions – including bonifications and sales, in order to increase the turnover, through modifications of expansion
strategies, shop sizes and offer types, up to renegotiations of rental conditions with the owners. A crisis is also the time of
nd
luxurious offers, fusions, overtakes and new entries. In the 2 quarter of 2009, the following phenomena could be seen:
consolidation, searches for strategic investors, renegotiation of loan conditions with the banks, introduction of repair
programs. One also has to note new entries (TK MAXX, S.Olivier, New Look, Peacock, Starbucks Coffee), expansion
acceleration (Marks&Spencer) or creation of new concepts (Ann Christine – New Yorker).
The importance of prompts in the total rental conditions has increased. They are introduced more often than ever before
and include: stepping rental fees, turnover rentals, rental holidays or participations in the arrangements of the place. The
level of rental fee became an important, although not the only one factor in making a decision on renting a place. It it the
5
total rental fee that matters, including expenses on the places’ arrangement, exploitation and marketing costs .

The level of initial monthly rental fees for the areas in commercial centres is still the highest in the case of so called prime
units, namely 100 to 150 sq.m. and it is reached in Warsaw, where the rental fees are oscillating from 65 to 90 Euro/sq.m.
The second place was taken by Kraków with slightly lower fees of 60-70 Euro/sq.m. Trójmiasto, Poznań and Wrocław are
regions, where the monthly rental fees for these area are oscillating in the range from about 40 Euro/sq.m. to 55
Euro/sq.m., whereas the lowest rental fees were recorded in Katowice, Szczecin and Łódź, where the renting party are
6
about to pay from ca. 40 Euro/sq.m. to 50 Euro/sq.m. of a commercial area .
Because of a sharp increase of saturation with commercial areas observed in the last years, the Issuing Party foresees that
the most dynamic development of commercial centres will take place in small and medium-sized cities. Another factors that
is faovurable for this tendency is lower cost of ground acquisition in comparison with the biggest agglomerations.
3.
Office area market.
Warsaw remains the most mature office area market in Poland, with reserves of modern office area for rent estimated to
be about 2,43 mln sq.m. Among the regional markets (Kraków, Poznań, Wrocław, Trójmiasto and Katowice) Wrocław has
becoe the leader for the first time, with its office area for rent having exceeded the level of 257 000 sq.m., thanks to
implementation in 2008 a record quantity of new supply (ove 105 000 sq.m.). The second place, after the capital of the
Lower Silesia, was taken by Kraków, with its supplies estimated as about 234 000 sq.m., whereas Trójmiasto took the third
place (184 000 sq.m. of office area for rent). Katowice remain the smallest market with its supplies of over 111 000 sq.m. of
offices.
In the entire year 2008, there have been about 472 000 sq.m. of modern office area for rent implemented, where about
52% (247 000 sq.m.) constituted by new supply for the Warsaw market. On 5 biggest regional markets the developers have
released for use in the past 12 months some 225 000 sq.m. of modern office area, almost twice as much as in 2007. Such a
good result was possible thanks to implementation bigger investments, than it was in the previous years (eg. Bema Plaza in
Wrocław).
Besides the Warsaw market, where about 413 000 sq.m. was created in 2009, the market in Kraków shows the most
dynamic growth. It is estimated that in this town over 152 000 sq.m. of modern offices are at different stages of
construction. Much lower activity of developers is seen in other regional cities, where from abour 30 000 sq.m. to 61 000
sq.m. of office area was created. The dynamic development of some of the regional office area markets caused these cities
to become the focus of attention of an increasing number of international developers. On the other hand, one can observe
an ever stronger position of some selected local companies (eg. Grupa Buma in Kraków, Archicom in Wrocław or Allcon in
Trójmiasto).
As a consequence of turbulences on financial markets, which took place in the 2008 and 2009, start of implementation of
new investments on the planning stage can be postponed due to a limited access to debt financing and an increased
caution of developers when it comes to starting new investments.
The demand observed in 2008 in Warsaw was high, comparable to the record year 2007. In the period of January-December
2008 rental contracts for more than 445 000 sq.m. were signed in the capital, where over 60% of office area was rented as
pre-lets, which was a result of diminished amount of area available in the existing buildings. In 2008, also some notable
rental transactions were made by large entities, which decided to consolidate their activity in one location (eg. Pekao S.A.
or TP S.A.).
In some regional cities, the volume of signed rental contracts totalled almost 179 000 sq.m., whereas Kraków and Wrocław
were the most interesting for the renting parties (respectively, 54 500 sq.m. and 57 000 sq.m. of rented area). The demand
7
was created mainly by companies offering professional services, finance and banking sector and the IT sector .
st
After the slowdown, which took place in the 1 quarter of 2009, the second quarter turned out to be more optimistic.
Drops in rental fees and increases in prompts number resulted in a slight increase of volume of rental transactions. As a
result, one can still observe a slight increase of the unrented area factor and further drops of rental fees. Still, the problems
8
related to funding of new investment cause, that many of the investment projects have been held off.
The rental fees are similar in most of the regional cities and they are, on average, around 13-16 Euro/sq.m., that is, thez are
rd
about 10% lower than in the 3 quarter of 2008. In case of buildings, the fees are even lower and they are about 10-12
9
Euro/sq.m. The lowest fees were recorded in Łódź, Trójmiasto and Katowice.
The difficulty in obtaining bank loans and higher bank profits cause a sharp increase in expenses made on investments.
Bank requirements regarding high levels of pre-rent before the construction of office buildings starts render

implementation of a large part of the investment impossible. On the other hand, there is too little own assets, the source of
which could be sales of existing office buildings, if such sales transactions took place, of course. Thus, the plans of the
developers require a constant revision. It is estimated, that only 550 000 sq.m. has really bet release for use in the biggest
Polish cities in 2009 (55% of the number already circulates on the market), and in 2010, probably only 345 000 sq.m. will be
10
delivered onto the market. Authors of the cited reports estimate, that even lower number if new implementation will
arrive on the market in 2011– about 272 000 sq.m. – a period of 24 months is usually the timeframe required for economic
effects to be reflected in supply of the real estates. The authors note, that current declarations of the developers regarding
the plans for the 2010-2011 period a related to much higher values– almost twice as much for the 2010 and almost six
times as much for the 2011. The Authors think, that new supply of office areas will slow down until 2011 and they do not
expect that the developers would start a lot of new investments, despite the economic growth predicted for 2010 and the
expected financial unfreezing in 2010.
The slowdown of supply is also an effect of stopping construction works of implemented office buildings. It is estimated
that 103 000 sq.m. of area is in that situation. Moreover, many objects in advanced planning stage will be shrunk, or divided
into stage, and often the devlopers lean towards solutions, which are not capital-consuming.
The year 2010 should be a year of favourable conditions for the renting parties. Such phenomena, as the growing subrental
market (estimated in 2009 for 50 000 sq.m. in Warsaw and 10 000 sq.m. in Kraków), increasing availability of offices (282
000 sq.m. in main Polish cities) and pressure leading to lower rental fees have made a permanent effect on the market
reality. These tendencies are related to all Polish markets and some differentiation throughout Poland can be made. This
situation will probably continue until 2011. The authors expect, that until that time, available area will be consumed by the
market, and that, combined with reactivation of demand resulting from the economic growth should give the developers a
signal for starting construction works for new investments. The 2012 – 2013 period should thus bring a growthon the
supply side of the office area market. The authors think that rental fees should respond to this situation even earlier. In an
optimistic variant, transaction rental fees should stabilize in the half of 2010, and in 2011 small increase pressure on the
rental fees may appear, not exceeding 3% y/y. This situation may happen in Warsaw and 2-3 other regional markets.
Forecasts related to the level of rented office area in 2010 are very unsure.
4.
Housing market.
In the first half of 2009 the housing market in Poland showed little consumer activity, although apartment sales have
nd
increased, in comparison with results at the end of 2008, especially in the 2 quarter of 2009. Some markets in Poland have
even recorded a two-digit increase in the number of locals sold. This result is not very optimistic, however, if we take into
account the total data related to sales, which were few times worse than in the first half of 2008, especially in comparison
with the same period of 2007. In the first half of 2009, drop of prices has made a contribution to the increase of demand,
along with the possibility of price negotiations and interest in the government sponsored project of stimulation of the
housing real estate market „Rodzina na swoim” on the side of buyers and developers, who started adjusting their prices to
the prices of this program. The structure of demand has changed in favour of the cheaper apartmet. The program „Rodzina
na swoim” cannot be seen as a panaceum for all problems of the market, however, since the real demand is still highly
dependent on the possibility of obtaining a mortgage loan, expectation of the buyers and the general economical situation.
Despite huge housing needs in Poland one has to expect, that in the mid-term perspective, the customers will still make
their decision on real estate purchases very cautiously.
nd
In the 2 quarter of 2009 a correction of market price trends was seen – tempo of price drops slowed down, and some
markets have even recorded a slight increase of average nominal prices. The markets of the first wave of housing boom
(Warsaw, Kraków and Wrocław) can expect a gradual swith to the path of prices increase and their further stabilistaion. The
markets of the second wave (Trójmiasto, Łódź, Katowice, Poznań and other regional cities) are usually more prone to the
effects of the crisis, but even in these cities first signs of prices increase could be seen. The significant changes leading to
stabilisation in these markets should appear with some delay, though. One should not expect a sudden drop of prices of
housing real estates, rather a stabilisation. The unsure mood holding on the market causes the prices of apartments to be
still highly related to the future policy of banks within the field of funding and granting mortgage loans, to economic
11
expectations of the customers and to the state of Polish economy in the face of the global economic crisis.
5.
Investment transactions.
The negative sequence of events observed in 2009 on the market of real estate is a consequence of serious turbulences in
the financial sector. The crisis of global financial markets has not evaded Poland, especially the buyers, who participated in
large extent in the bank funding, because costs of this funding has significantly increased, while the access to the funding
remains very limited (especially for high ratios of the loan to the value of the real estate). As a consequence, the value of
transactions made has drastically dropped, while still single transactions on the real estate market can be seen. One has to
note, that Poland started to feel the effect of the global resession only after September/October of 2008. Despite the large

drop of turnover on the real estate market, capitalisation rates in the firest 8-9 months of 2008 have not undergone serios
fluctuations. The situation dramatically changed after the fall of Lehman Brothers and the second wave of crisis on the
12
financial markets.
According to the authors of the cited report, capitalisation rates for the best office real estates in 2009 equalled 7,25-7,50%
and about 7,00% for the best commercial centres. The capitalistation rates have been decompressed due to the global
economic slowdown, lower interest of the investors and low availability of bank funding. However, the authors of the
report do not expect further decompression of the rates in the near future. Even higher capitalisation rates will not
generate higher turnover on the market, since most of the real estate owners will probably not decide to sell their
properties with a large correction of prices. The authors of the report predict and increase of transaction activity, drawing
more capital searching the investment product and trying to use revisioned price expectations of some sellers, along with
strong macroeconomic and demographic basis of Poland.

Goods sales include mainly sales of real estates, which are purchased by the Issuing Party on its own account and sells back
to other buyers, or which are purchased on the account of the Issuing Party as parts of contracts signed with the ordering
parties and which are sold back after implementation of agreed procedures, eg. administrative procedures. Products and
services sales included mainy income from renting own real estates, including reinvoiced media costs, income from sales of
commercial objects constructed on the order of third parties and reinvoiced costs of the construction works, paid by the
Issuing Party. It is irrrelevant to look for regularities in the shaping of the aforementioned income sources, since it depends
on individual aspects of the real estates, obtained orders and implementation of particular investments by the Issuing
Party.

6.5.
Declaration of the Issuing Party on its competition position
Significant elements of competitional advantage of the Group of the Issuing Party listed in p. 6.2.3 „Registration
Document”, are as follows:
 Market niche – uptown galleries and commercial parks implemented in small and medium-sized cities. The local
markets have been so far avoided by the competition, which was focused on large agglomerations. The Group of the
Issuing Party has a solid position on local markets, which provides it with a permanent competitional advantage. Local
markets form the most attractive development for commercial projects, as the density of commercial areas in large
cities increases, along with the wealth level of the society,
 Very good relations with many operators (renting parties) of the most important, the biggest and/or the most
profitable areas,
 effective analytic and decision-making process, lasting– depending on the real estate type – from 5 to 30 days,
 long-time experience in implementation of investment and development projects in the field of real estates,
 strategic partnership with Carrefour – a close and long-term cooperation with second (as far as turnover rates are
concerned) food-related group in the world guarantees success of project implementation because of the guarantees
of a long-term rent,
 solid relations with business partners (e.g. Carrefour, Jeronimo Marins Distribution, Helical, Parkridge, Leroy Merlyn,
Grupa Metro, Ernst & Young, OBI),
 specialised and experienced managerial staff in the field of design and supervision of investment and construction
projects,
 cooperation with renown companies during implementation of each stage of the investment.

Financial results of the Capital Group of the Issuing Party within the timeframe of 2006 – 1 half of 2009 show large
variability. These variations result from the nature of activity of the Group. The financial results are strongly influenced by
overestimations resulted from the update of real estate investment evaluations related to fair value. The net result of
92 459 000 PLN in 2006 was mainly influenced by overestimation to the fair value of Galeria Piastów in Legnica. The total
influence of estimation update on the account of profits and losses totalled 94 529 000 PLN in 2006, without the effect of
delayed tax. In 2007, the Group has obtained profit from the sale of shares of Jogra 2 Sp. z o.o. company, which was 23 825
000 PLN, it allowed to work out a net result at the level of 28 069 000 PLN. The drop of net income in 2008, to the level of
4 815 000 PLN was mainly caused by the financial costs, which totaled 54 902 00 PLN, in particular:
 Evaluation of derivative financial instruments -37 537 000 PLN,
 Differences in currency rates - 10 913 000 PLN.
The net result of 79 102 000 PLN, obtained in the first half of 2009 results mainly from the update of the investment real
estates in relation to their fair value. This value totalled 123 711 000 PLN in the first half of 2009 and it results mainly from
rd
the release of the 3 stage of Galeria Piastów and Galeria Twierdza in Kłodzko for use (the overestimation took place at the
moment when the investment was finished).

Rules of factors calculation:
 Sales profitability – as a relation of sales profit to sales income,
 Current profitability – as a relation of current profit to sales income,
 Net profitability – as a relation of net profit to sales income,
 Return on assets (ROA) – as a relation of net profit to total assets x „n” (n = 1 in the case of a full year, n = 1/2 in the
case of half a year),
 Return on own capital (ROE) – as a relation of net profit to own capital x „n” (n = 1 in the case of a full year, n = 1/2 in
the case of half a year).
In the years of 2006 and 2007 and in the first half of 2009 profitability factors were high. The drop of net profitability factor
st
in 2008 is mainly a result of high financial costs. In the 1 half of 2009, the Issuing Party has improved all profitability factors
st
in comparison to the 1 half of 2008.

than the sales income. The ratio of current costs to sales income totalled 69,9% in 2006, 61,7% in 2005 and 63,6% in 2008.
st
st
This factor was 80,8 % for the 1 half of 2009, but it was still lower than this factor for the 1 half of 2008, , when it had a

included mainly an amount of 1 755 000 PLN, representing an extract updating the value of a real estate under construction
st
and 808 000 PLN, namely an updating extract for the value of the debt. In the 1 half of 2009, other current costs toralled
21 444, the amount is related to update of reserve value.
Evaluation of investments to their real value is a significant position here. According to the accounting policy taken by the
Group of the Issuing Party, the investment real estates are included according to their fair value, thus the Group of the
Issuing Party included to overestimate of investment real estates value as the following amounts: 94 529 000 PLN in 2006,
6 436 000 PLN in 2007, 16 595 000 PLN in 2008 and 123 711 000 PLN in the first half of 2009.
Financial income did not constitute a significant entry in the financial reults of the Group of the Issuing Party for 2006. The
main financial income entry was interest rates of bank deposits (206 000 PLN) and loans granted, with the amount of 58
000 PLN. In 2007, financial income totalled 28 251 000 PLN, with the main entry consisting of income from investments

partners, and interest rates of loans, totalling 229 000 PLN. In 2007, the financial costs totalled 4 321 000 PLN, including
interest rates of loan, totalling 4 302 000 PLN. In 2008, the financial costs totalled 54 902 000 PLN. This huge increase of
financial costs in 2008 was related to evaluation of derivative financial instruments for the amount of 37 537 000 PLN and
the result of currency rate changes, totalling 10 913 000 PLN. Additionally, the Issuing Party spent the costs of loan interest
st
rates, totalling 5 097 000 PLN. In the 1 half of 2009, financial costs totalled 23 361 000 PLN, including 3 266 000 PLN
related to evaluation of derivative instruments, while the rest consisted mainly of differences in currency rates.

st
(related to overestimation of fair value of the 1 Stage of Galeria Piastów, then under construction), created by the Issuing
Party. The Issuing Party made the decision on creating this reserve because of the fact, that it would change its legal form
the next year (from a general partnership to a capital partnership) and this tax would have to be paid the next year by the
partnership, and not by the partners. In 2007, the income tax totalled 3 833 000 PLN, of which 2 433 000 PLN was an effect
of creation of delayed tax reserve by the Issuing Party. In 2007, the income tax totalled 279 000 PLN, of which 7 394 000
PLN was the effect of current duty by the virtue of income, and 7 120 000 PLN was an effect of reversal of transition
st
differences in delayed tax. In the 1 half of 2009, the income tax totalled 18 781 000 PLN.

In the period of 2006 – 2008 and the 1 half of 2009, the assets of the Capital Group of the Issuing Party was largely
financed by obligations, whereas the obligation level in financing of the Parthership’s assets fell down in 2008 to the level of
75%, in comparison to the 51% - 57% level in the period of 2006 – 2007. In the first half of 2009, this participation dropped
to the level of 67%. It was a result of increase of own capital in the Group of the Issuing Party, greater than the increase of
obligations Short-term obligations dominated the structure of obligations financing the activity of the Group of the Issuing
party in the years of 2006 and 2008. In 2007 and in the first half of 2009, this situation has changed in the favour of longterm obligations. The debt indicator of own capital is variable in the period studied and it oscillated in the range of 1,05 –
3,03. The increase of this indicator to the level of 3,03 in 2008 was caused by a significant increase of total obligations in
relation to a small increase of own capital.

Rules of indicator calculations:

Current flow index – as a relation of current assets to short-term obligations,

Fast flow index – as a relation of current assets minus reverses to short-term obligations,

Reserve rotation cycle – as a relation of average reserve level to sales income, multiplied by 365 days and multiplied by
„n” (n = 1 in the case of a year, n = 1/2 in the case of half a year),

Active debt collection cycle – as a relation of average active debt level to sales income, multiplied by 365 days and
multiplied by „n” (n = 1 in the case of a year, n = 1/2 in the case of half a year),

Debt regulation cycle – as a relation of average current debt level to sales income, multiplied by 365 days and
multiplied by „n” (n = 1 in the case of a year, n = 1/2 in the case of half a year).
The current flow index shows, how well the currents assets cover current obligations. The desired level of current flow
st
index is in the range of 1,0 – 2,0. In 2006 – 2007 the value of this index was maintained in the desired level. In the 1 half of
2009, the value of this index could also exceed 1,0, if one took into account the fact of prolongation of payment deadline
nd
for one of the loans, which took place in the 2 part of 2009. The fast flow index informs, how much the most fluid current
assets cover current obligations. The desired level of this index is in the range of 0,5 – 1,0. The fast flow index of the Group
of Issuing Party showed large variability in the period of 2006 – 2008, oscillating in the range of 0,13 – 0,38, which is below
the suggested norm. In the first half of 2009, this index reached the value of 0,14, an improvement in comparison to 2008,
however it is still below the suggested norm and it would equal 0,23, if one took into account the fact of prolongation of
payment deadline of the aforementioned loan. In the case of the Group of the Issuing Party, the nature of business activity
(construction) enables to maintain a high level of current obligations for the partners, which influences the levels of viability
indices. The reserve rotation cycle in days defines, how often does the company refresh its reserves on performing a
st
particular sale. In the Group of the Issuing Party, this index shows a large variability in the period of 2006 – 1 half of 2009.
This variability is a result of the fact, that the Issuing Party treats its reserve as goods, namely – gronds purchased for future
sellback. Transactions related to purchased grounds usually last from few to even several tens of months and it influences
the level of reserves, which is always high. The collection cycle, which represents (in days) the average waiting time for debt
collection, this index is also very variable in the period of 2006 – 2008 and in the first half of 2009. The increase of collection
period in 2007 was a result of the fact, that the Issuing Party was implementing ever bigger investments, where the
payments are often performed in tranches, on the basis of stages of products, released by the Partnership. The debt
regulation cycle in days defined the time of regulation of current obligations. Obligation regulation time in gradually
increased in the period od 2006 – 2008, from 395 days to 565 days. These indices were bigger than those related to debt
collection time in the aforementioned period, which was caused by holding a high level of pre-payments obtained for future
supplies of products implemented in timeframes of few, sometimes even few tens of months, financing of current activity
of the Group of the Issuing Party using current loans, renewed each year and high level od investment obligations taken for
the implementation of investment projects. In the first half of 2009 this index dropped to the level of 414 days.
10.4. Information about any restrictions in using capital assets, which had, or which could have
influenced, directly of indirectly, the current activity of the Issuing Party
th
According to the investment loan contract dated September 30 , 2008, signed by the dependent unit E.F. Progress V Sp.
with o.o. a BZ WBK S.A., any loan grants by E.F. Progress V Sp. z o.o., including the dominating entity, require permission
from BZ WBK S.A. A permission is also required for dividend payment by E.F. Progress V Sp. z o.o. Proper statementsth
obligations on cancelling payouts of the dividend were signed on September 30 , 2008 by the Board of the dominant entity
Rank Progress S.A. and the main shareholders of the dominating entity, i.e. Jan Mroczka and Andrzej Bartnicki. Obligations
covered by these statements cannot be dismissed without permission from BZ WBK S.A. Currently, the Boards of the Issuing
Party and its dependent entity have started negotiations with BZ WBK S.A. in order to dismiss a part of financial surplus
from the obligation of permission obtaining from BZ WBK S.A. for the payment of the dividend.
The Board of the Issuing Party does not exclude, that in the future, limitations on payments of parts of the dividend or the
entire dividend or granting loans within the Group of the Issuing Party, can be placed on the dependent units implementing
future investment projects. However, the Board of the Issuing Party requires during negotiations of other investment loans
Page 81
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
for its dependent companies, that the financial insitutions took into account the fact that cash surpluses in the intended
companies will be transferred to the dominating entity and that it can be located in future investments or in dividend
payments, while preparing loan conditions.
In 2009, the Issuing Party did not meet the condition of introducing its own share to the „Galeria Piastów II”
st
investment, equal to 6,1 mln PLN, by March 31 , 2009, with the condition defined in the loan credit signed with
BZ WBK, which is mentioned in p. 22.1.4 Part III of this Prospectus. Additionally, the dependent company of the
Issuing Party - E.F. Progress V Sp. z o.o. – did not meet the condition of holding the factor of debt relation to the
value of Twierdza Commercial Company investment at the level not exceeding 55% at the moment of the
investment start, defined in the loan contract signed with BZ WBK, mentioned in p. 22.1.7 Part III of this
Prospectus. As a result of negotiations with BZ WBK, both aforementioned violations of loan contracts have been
accepted by BZ WBK, where it was necessary to change the conditions of said loan contracts, as well as of a
contract signed by the Issuing Party and by BZ WBK, mentioned in p. 22.2.1 Part III of this Prospectus. As a result
th
of negotiations, on September 10 , 2009, proper annexes were signed by both entities. According to the annexes
to the load contracts presented in p. 22.1.1 and 22.1.4 Part III of this Prospect, signed by the Issuing Party, the
most important changes in relation to the initial contracts were related to the shortening of loan period to August
st
st
31 , 2014 and Semptember 1 , 2014, respectively, assuming yearly loan depreciation of 1,5% and a balloon
installment at the end of the loand period, with the option of 2-year financing period extension, incrementation
of the bank’s interest and creation of additional protection of loans by means of mortgage on a real estate of the
Issuing Party located in Zgorzelec, introduction of „cash sweep” mechanism in the case of loan mentioned in p.
22.1.1 Part III of this Prospectus and its modification in the case of loand mentioned in p. 22.1.4 Part III of this
Prospectus. Additionally, the annexes predict additional obligations of the Partnership and a modification of
agreed parameters if the conditions presented in the annexes are not met. According to the annex signed on
th
September 10 , 2009, the dependent company of the Issuing Party, E.F. Progress V Sp. z o.o. to the loan contract
mentioned in p. 22.1.7 Part III of this Prospectus, the most important changes in comparison to the initial contract
st
were related to the extension of loan period to September 1 , 2013 (the initial contract defined this deadline as
th
June 30 , 2009 with the option of 15-year extension if some conditions are met) with the option of extension
st
(under some conditions) to Septeber 1 , 2016, changes of capital installment levels includint a yearly loan
depreciation of 1,5%, incremented bank interest and change of the „cash sweep” mechanism. Additionally, the
annex includes additional obligations of the Partnership and modifications of agreed parameters if the conditions
presented in the annex are not met.
However, the Issuing Party states, that in the case of loan contract presented in p. 22.1.2 Part III of this Prospectus, the
st
Issuing Party did not make a payment of the loand granted by virtue of this contract before January 31 , 2010, and in the
case of loan contract presented in p. 22.1.5 Part III of this Prospectus – it did not make a payment of the loan granted by
st
virtue of this contract before March 31 , 2010. As it was applied for by the Issuing Party, the loan committee of the BZ WBK
th
S.A. bank, which met on April 8 , 2010, approved conditions of further conditions agreed with the Issuing Party, included in
the scope of the said loan contract, according to which the payment deadline for the said contract was extended to June
th
30 , 2010. The payments of the loans are to be made thanks to obtaining financial assets by the Issuing Party by virtue of
selling the Twierdza Commercial Centre in Kłodzko, whch is mentioned in p. 5.2.1.3 Part III of this Prospectus, with the sale
being planned for June 2010. The Issuing Party does not predict any significant risks related to not making the payments of
the said loans within deadline. However, if the potential investor withdraws from the purchase of the Twierdza Commercial
Centre, the Issuing Party will negotiate an extension od the payment deadline for the said loans for a later date necessary
for sale of the Twierdza Commercial Centre, or other real estate designed for sale by the Issuing Party, takes place, and
which are included in the table „Investment projects for sale” in p. 6.1.1.6 Part III of this Prospectus.
10.5. Information about predicted funding sources necessary to implement obligations resulting
from the planned investments of the Issuing Party and planned significant tangible fixed
assets
In the period of 2010 – 2012, the Issuing Party intends to implement obligations resulting from the planned investments of
the Issuing Party, described in the p. 5.2.3 Part III of the Prospectus „Registration Document” and to perform purchases of
significant, tangible fixed assets described in p. 8.1.3 Part III of the Prospectus „Registration Document”. Assets for the

The registration proceeding related to these trademarks is underway.
12. Information about tendences
12.1. The most significant recent tendences in production, sales and supplies, as well as in costs
and sale prices for the period from the date of last tax year finish until the date of
Prospectus approval
Becasue of the global crisis on the financial and real estate markets, in 2009 the Issuing Party has lowered the level of its
engagement in implementation and sales of highly profitable, short-term projects in favour of long-term investment
projects with stable income andcosts, i.e. projects related to commercial objects designed for long-term rent. This tendency
is reflected in consolidate financial reports by systematic increase of income from rent of commercial objects and value of
real estate investments. At the same time, because of the crisis and changes of market conditions related to the crisis, the
Issuing Party has revisioned its investment plans in 2008 and 2009, delaying implementation of some investment projects,
as well as designing some projects, which do not satisfy expectations of the Issuing Party, for sale, and this decision caused
a significant increase in the value of reserves in consolidated financial reports, in comparison to previous years.
Turbulences on the financial markets have touched not only the investors of owners of commercial galleries, but also a part
of the renting parties, who had to revision their plans related to expansion or to hold the expansion off or more selectively
approach new locations. The significant increase of Euro rates in the beginning of 2009 probably also had negative influence
on their financial situation, especially if they purchased their store collections or obtained loans in Euro. All these factors
were reflected in a weak financial condition of the companies, especially from the textile market, which was the reason that
some of them, if they have not applied for bankruptcy, then they at least have started renegotiations of rental contracts in
order to lower the rent-related obligations. On the other hand, many trademarks still continue their expansion on the
Polish market or they plan entering the Polish market, also thanks to the weaker competition. However, despite precidted
and continued expansion, one can see a general drop of demand on new commercial area and one can also see an increase
in free, unrented commercial area.
Due to limited expansion of renting parties, limitations in acquisition of bank funding, one could recently see a drop
tendency of rental fees in relation to rental contracts signed in 2007 and 2008, with the exception of the most attractive
commercial centres, along with am increased bidding strength or potential renting parties, which want ever higher standard
of the area’s decor, zero rental fee for the first few months and additional gratifications covering the expenses of the area’s
decor as prompts. Starting from the mid-year 2009, the Issuing Party has observed a slight stabilisation of the real estate
market, which allowed a verification of investment plans on the basis of stable data regarding expected rental fees for
particular, implemented commercial objects (lower than market rental fees in 2008 and previous years), interest rates
(lower than those effective in 2008 and previous years), bank profits (higher than those effective in 2008 and later years),
construction costs (lower than those still effective in the beginning of 2009 and previous years), etc.
As indicated above, many of the real estates were designed by the Issuing Party for sale. However, throughout the entire
year 2009, up to the date of Prospectus creation, no significant sales of this type of real estates have been performed. It
Page 83
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
was a result of a few factors – e.g. diffictulties related to acquisitiong of bank financing, high level of real estate reserves in
many of the most important market players, who often purchased real estates for future development projects during the
hossa of 2007 and 2008 and who now await an improvement, which will allow to perform and to sell the investments, while
retaining proper financial parameters and with more cautious analysis of investment risk, which is also translated into
longer times of procedures related to finalisation of transactions. This situation is the reason that the sale prices obtained
during the time of hossa are not currently possible to obtain in most of the cases.
The current stabilisation on the real estate market and observed increase of interest of the investors in the real estates
planned for sale by the Issuing Party, indicates a possibility of performing such transactions at satisfactory prices even in
2010 and which will later reach the level of at least account value of these real estates, included in consolidated financial
reports of the Issuing Parties. At the same time, the Issuing Party does not exclude the possibility of returning to the
implementation of investment projects based on the owned grounds. Taking into account the fact that the aforementioned
grounds have their local spatial development plans, and most of the agreements, then the decision regarding the start of
the investment can be made in a very short time, and that should transform into a significant rise of income, which at the
same time will be postponed in time.
12.2. Information about any known tendencies, unsure elements, claims, obligations or events,
which are rather sure to influence the perspectives of the Issuing Party at least until the end
of current tax year
The macroeconomic situation of Poland
The entirety of the Partnership’s income is related to its activity on the domestic market and thus it is indirectly dependent
on factors related to the general macroeconomic situation of Poland, e.g. such, as unemployment level, economic growth
rate or inflation rate. Perturbations on the international financial markets have influenced the economic situation of
Poland. A drop of economic growth rate, increase of unemployment level and depreciation of PLN rates in relation to
foreign currencies have been observed. Economic tendencies described above have influenced the income level of the
Group of the Issuing Party. However, the macroeconomic situation should improve in 2010, which should see a positive
reflection in the situation of the Group of the Issuing Party
Legal regulations
Legal regulations of Polish law can also significantly influence the activity of the Group of the Issuing Party. Th Issuing Party
does not predict any significant changes to Polish law taking place at least until the end of 2010, which could influence the
activity of the Group of the Issuing Party.
Dynamics and directions of development of the markets of the Group of the Issuing Party
The activity of the Group of the Issuing Party can be influenced by dynamics and development of markets, on which the
activity of the Group of the Issuing Party is located. Since the mid-year 2009, one can observe a slight improvement of
dynamics and directions development of markets, on which the Group of the Issuing Party acts. According to the knowledge
of the Issuing Party, the dynamics and development of the markets of the Group of the Issuing Party should be faovurable
for the activity of the Group of the Issuing Party, at least until the end of 2010.
Competition of other entities
The development perspectives of the Group of the Issuing Party depend on the intensity of competition actions of domestic
and foreign companies present on the Polish market. Actions of the competition should not significantly influence the
activity of the Group of Issuing Party, at least until the end of 2010.
Currency rate changes
The activity of the Group of the Issuing Party is influenced by currency rate changes, especially the Euro rate changes.
According to the edge of the Issuing arty, the foreseeable currency rate changes should not significantly influence the
activity of the Group of the Issuing Party, at least until the end of 2010.
Possibility of strengthening of market position
The development perspectives of the Group of the Issuing Party are largely dependent on the success in the
implementation of the development strategy, which has been presented in p. 6.1.1.1. Part III „Registration Document”.

Generally available macroeconomic forecasts for Polish economy, which can influence the activity of the Capital
Group,
Generally available analyses of commercial real estate market, which is the market of the activity of the Group of the
Issuing Party, related to the forecast of its development,

Strategic plans of the Capital Group, related to e.g. future investments, costs, incomes, and financial flows as well as
financing the activity.
13.1.1. Assumptions for estimated results of the Issuing Party
Estimated results of the Capital Group of the Issuing Party for the year 2009 have been created on the basis of transactions
st
st
performed by the Capital Group of the Issuing Party in the period from January 1 to December 31 , 2009 roku, by using
the same methods of evaluation and presentations, as used to create the yearly financial report of the Issuing Party,
including those, which were used to create historical financial information presented in the Prospectus.
st
Evaluation of investments in the commercial real estates finshed before December 31 , 2009, to their fair value, along with
evaluation of ground real estates classified as investment real estates was based on estimated operates obtained in the
year 2009, performed by independent experts, corrected by the Issuing Party with factors present between the date the
st
estimation of operates has been performed and December 31 , 2009, which can influence the value of these real estates,
estimated within these operates.
The Board of the Issuing Party took all possible care in order for the estimated results to be reliable, i.e., the estimations
have been made using the same rules and procedures as those used in yearly financial reports.
The estimated results presented in this Prospectus can differ from the values resulting from a studied, yearly, consolidated
financial report of the Capital Group of the Issuing Party for the year 2009.
13.1.2. Assumptions for financial forecasts, independent from the Issuing Party
While preparing a results forecast for the years 2010, 2011, 2012, the Board of the Issuing Party included macroeconomic
data. Forecasts of incomes and costs made by the Issuing Party included the predicted inflation rate of 2% yearly, however,
because indexation of rental fees with the inflation rate is used, it is predicted that these factors will not have significant
influence on the forecasts of the Issuing Party.
Additional factors related to the forecasts, independent from the Issuing Party:




Rental fees have been determined based on:
Current data obtained in the negotiation process performed by the Issuing Party with potential renting
parties (currently, the Issuing Party itself commercialises its commercial objects),
An analogy to current fees applied by the Issuing Party in existing objects,
Data obtaine from estimated operates of market value of existing and future investment real estates of the
Issuing Party, prepared by independent advisory companies.
Capitalisation rate of 8,5%, used in estimations of fair value of planned, real estate investment, has been determined
basing on:
Estimated operates of market value of existing and future objects of the Issuing Party created by
independent advisory companies,
Negotiations performed by the Issuing Party with potential customers interested in purchasing single
projects of the Issuing Party,
Generally available reports and analyses of the real estate market made by renown companies, such as
Knight Frank and Cushman & Wakefield, presenting tendencies in the field of shaping discount rates and
capitalisation of commercial real estates,
Values of transaction prices related to short-term investment projects have been based on:
Signed contracts, which will be implemented in the future,
Estimated operates of market value of current and future investment real estates of the Issuing Party,
created by independent experts,
Negotiations underway.
Interest rates of 1% i 3,5%, respectively, for loans denominated in Euro and in zlotys, bank profits and commissions of
banks financing the investments were based on:
Obtained in real time, initial conditions of real estate investments financed by banks interested in financing a
particular projects,
Interest rates and commissions applied by banks to the constructed investments of the Issuing Party,

Negotiations performed with banks;
Published EURIBOR and WIBOR interest rates.
st
Evaluation of commercial real estate investments finished before December 31 , 2009, to their fair value and
evaluation of ground real estates classified as investment real estates was created on the basis of obtained, estimated
operates, performed by independent experts. The next years of the forecast do not include further changes in fair
value of investment real estates.
13.1.3. Assumptions for financial forecasts dependent on the Issuing Party
The Board of Rank Progres S.A. based its prepared forecast for the years 2010, 2011, 2012 on the main assumptions:
 The Issuing Party intends to implement planned investments,
 The Issuing Party shall implement planned short-term investments,
 Total rental areas for implemented and future objects are calculated on the basis of designs and architectural concepts
preparted for investments,
 Income from rents is a product of rental area and average yearly rental fees, set on the basis of already signed rental
contracts, along with negotiated and expected contracts,
 Current activity costs, including costs of general Board, are based on data for the last finished tax year and it includes
escalation of costs, e.g. caused by increase of the number of employees. The operational costs of particular investment
real estates are based on the historical data on costs of investment real estates, which are already finished,
 Exploitation fees income are equal to operational costs of the particular investment minus costs, which are not
reinvoiced on the renting parties and which have been estimated on the basis of implemented, similar investments,
 Sales income from the development activity has been based only on those investments, which are probable to be
implemented,
 Income from the sales of investment real estates have been based on negotiations performed with potential buyers,
 Investment real estates during the construction stage are evaluated to their fair value according to the accounting
policy used, where the fair value is scouted as proportional to the costs of investment creation from the start of
investment financing by the bank; No future changes of the fair value set at the moment when the construction works
are finished are planned,
 Evaluation of planned real estate investments – commercial objects to their fair value is made on the basis of the
following equation: (expected yearly income from rent) / (capitalisation rate),
 Costs of financing investments in their construction stage is related to the costs of this investment and they have been
taken into account during profit estimation for that particular investment,
 Expenses on construction works related to investments in the construction stage have been uniformly included in the
commercial object construction period,
 The forecast does not include increase of the value of ground designed for sale, which have been treated as goods,
 The drop of value of the grounds designed for sale has been included, where the grounds have ben treated as goods
on the basis of estimated operates of market values prepared by independent experts,
 Investment financing will be based on own assets generated from own business activity, assets obtained from the
Issue of Series C Shares and bank loans taken in PLN during the construction stage and later changed into bank loans
denominated in Euro,
 Future expenses on investment real estates have been predicted on the basis of estimates prepared by the Issuing
Party,
 No changes in the level of debts and active debts are predicted after 2010 (by virtue of supplies and services and other
sources) in the forecasts,
 The forecasts predicts a new issue of shares,
 Starting from 2010, the forecasts assume a payment of dividend on the level of 10% of net profit for the previous year.

13.2. Report of independent accountants or expert auditors on the correctness of financial
forecasts and estimated results preparations
Report of an expert auditor on the correctness of financial forecasts and estimated results preparations
For the General Assebly, Supervisory Board and Board of RANK PROGRESS S.A.
We have peformed confirmation works, with the subject of the works being estimated results and financial forecasts,
including forecast of net sales income, profit from operational activity (EBIT), profit from operational activity increased by
depreciation (EBITDA) and net profit of the Capital Group RANK PROGRESS („Group”) for tax years ending on December
st
st
st
st
31 , 2009 („Estimated results”) and December 31 , 2010, December 31 2011 and December 31 , 2012 („Results
forecast”).
The Estimated results and the Results forecast, together with significant assumptions which form their basis, have been
presented in p. 13.1. of the Registration Document prepared by the Issuing Party.
The Board of the Issuing Party holds the sole responsibility for preparation of Estimated results and Results forecast,
including their assumptions.
Our task was to give an opinion on these Estimated results and Results forecasts on the basis of our works. These works
were performed according to the International Standard of Attestation Services 3400, applied to checking predicted
financial information, issued by the International Federation of Accountants („IFAC”).
These works included a consideration, if the Estimated results and Results forecasts have been properly set on the basis of
revealed assumptions, according to the rules of accounting assumed by the Issuing Party.
Our works have been planned and performed in such a way, that we could gather information and explanations which we
decided to be necessary to be adequately sure, that the Estimated results and Results forecast have been (on the basis of
specified assumptions), properly created and that applied accounting rules are coherent with the accounting rules
presented in the introduction to the financial report presented in chapter 20 of the Registration Document.
Because the Results forecast and its assumptions are related to the future and thus they may be influenced by unexpected
events, we do not state that the real results will be similar to those presented in the Results forecast and if the differences
would be significant. Besides, the Estimated results can differ from values that will be obtained from the studied, yearly
consolidated financial report of the Capital Group of the Issuing Party for the year 2009, which was pointed at by the Board
of the Issuing Party in presented assumptions of the Estimated results. Such a situation may be a results of e.g. changes of
currency rates assumed for evaluation of fair values of investment real estates.
In our opinion, the Estimated results and the Result forecast have been properly prepared on the basis of assumptions
listed in the Registration Document p. 13.1., and the made assumptions form a rational basis for creation of predicted
financial results, while applied accounting rules are coherent with accounting rules presented in the introduction to the
financial report presented in chapter 20 of the Registration Document.
o
This report has been prepared according to the requirements of a Regulation of the Commitee (EC) N 809/2004 dated
th
April 29 , 2004 executing the Directive 2003/71/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the information

315,32 PLN, with 6 676 521,32 PLN being executable, and the amount of 8 092 794 PLN being a conditional obligation i.e.
non-executable, which resuted from a preinitial contract of ground sales, signed with a third party. On 16.12.2009, the third

with payments of such reduced costs in 12 equal, quarterly installments, paid at the end of each quarter, with the first
installment being paid after 12 months from the date, when the decision of the Court related to the agreement becomes
legally effective. According to the application of E.F. Progress IV Sp. z o.o., financing of the agreement is to be made from
profit obtained by the Company as a result of investment plans implementation (construction of a commercial centre), or
from sales of real estates owned by the Company, but after their purpose in the local spatial development plan is changed
(i.e. in ca. 18 months). During the initial debtors meeting, due to lack of quroum, no binding decisions have been reached.
Currently, the Company waits for the following Court proceedings to be announced, when the decisions related to the

 Is a Board Chairman and a shareholder of PROFESCAPITAL Sp. z o.o., is a Board Chairman of Abak Sp. z o.o., Supervisory

 PROFESCAPITAL Sp. z o.o. manages, e.g. restructurisation projects of companies which are in a difficult economic
situation. PROFESCAPITAL Sp. z o.o. has performed restructurisation projects of companies which are in a difficult
economic situation from its very inception. Such projects were implemented, e.g. in the Wielton S.A. capital group
(Wieluń), or Delko S.A. (Śrem). Paweł Puterko as the Board Chairman managed a financial restructurisation project in
the Lo-Ka Sp. z o.o. company, a frozen food distributor. In 2005 PROFESCAPITAL Sp. z o.o. signed a contract with this
company and its shareholders, related to restructurisation and obtaining permanent business profitability. At the
moment the contract was signed, the company had very small sales, which did not allow it to reach the profitability
threshold, huge debt in banks and to suppliers, as well as revoked limits of trade loans. This company was also a
subject of vindication proceedings. The goal od PROFESCAPITAL Sp. z o.o. was to restore loan limits of the main
suppliers, restoring trade circulation and turnover, reaching the profitability threshold and then – restructurisation of
obligations. This result has been temporarily obtained, but this success was a result of the summer season, when the
consumption of ice-creams reaches its yearly top, which consisted a majority of Lo – Ka’s sales. After the season, sales
have dramatically dropped again, the suppliers refused to continue trade limits and the restructurisation project
became impossible to implement as a result. PROFESCAPITAL Sp. z o.o. terminated the contract with Lo-Ka, which in
turn lodged a bankruptcy application,

st
The Board Member Mariusz Kaczmarek is employed on the basis of a managerial contract signed on July 1 , 2008.
According to the stipulations of the contract, it can be terminated upon the decision of one of the parties, with a 3-month
notice period. The contract can be terminated any time by a mutual agreement. In the case of managerial contract
recovation or termination, the Board Member will be obliged with a promise of abstaining from comptation activities for six

The Issuing Party indicated that the rules of Supervisory Board members salaries result from the Resolution of the General
th
th
Assembly of January 26 , 2007 and from the Resolution of the General Assembly of November 9 , 2009. According to the
said resolutions, monthly salaries of the Supervisory Board members are as follows:

Supervisory Board Chairman – 50 000 PLN,

Supervisory Board Deputy Chairman – 4 000 PLN,

Supervisory Board Member – 3 000 PLN.
Additionally, the Issuing Party indicates, that in a case of dismissal or resignation before the end of the term, the
Supervisory Board member in question loses all additional benefits by virtue of premature dismissal or resignation as a
Supervisory Board member.
16.3. Audit Committee and Issuing Party’s Salary Committee
No Audit Committee or a Salary Committee has been created within the Supervisory Board of the Issuing Party. Because
there are five members of the Supervisory Board total and there are no indpendent members, the Issuing Party deems a
creation of a Salary Committee irrelevant, because its duties can be full executed by the entire Supervisory Board. However,
the Board of the Issuing Party intends to recommend an election of a new Supervisory Board member by this organ at the
next General Assembly, who would meet the requirements of art. 86 p. 4 of the Act on expert auditors and their selfgoverning bodies and on the public supervision, whereas this member shall be qualified in accounting or financial revision,
as well as creation of an Audit Committee by the Supervisory Board.
16.4. Rules of corporate order
th
According to the resolution dated February 13 , 2008., the Board of the Issuing Party decided to keep a corporation in the
Issuing Party, starting from the day the approval of circulation of the Issuing Party’s shares on GPW in Warsaw, which are
th
described in the resolution 12/1170/2007 of the Supervisory Board of the Stock Exchange dated July 4 , 2007 („Good
Practice of the Companies quoted at GPW”).
A proper report containing information on which of the rules are not applied, reasons for not applying a specific rule or
methods planned to be used by the Issuing Party in order to miminize the risk of not applying the rules of corporate order
will be published in the future as a current communication, in addition, contents of the Issuing Party’s report shall be
published o its website.
Additionally, the Partnership decided that the Partnership will follow all rules of the corporation order, excluding the
following rules: II.1 p.6, II.1 p.7 (until the Partnership obtains the status of a public partnership), III.1, III.7, III.8. The Issuing
Party presented its justification of not adhering to the aforementioned rules.
o
Rule N II.1 p.6: „The Partnership manages a corporate website and places there: (…) Annual reports on the actions of the
Supervisory Board, including works of its committees, together with an evaluation of the actions of the supervisory board
along with an internal control system and a risk management system, important for the Partnership.”
This rule is not and will not be applied in the part related to reports on the works of committees and in the evaluation of
the internal control system and the risk management system important for the Partnership, since no committees exist
within the activity of the Supervisory Board.
o
Rule N II.1 p.7: „The Partnership manages a corporate website and places there: (…) Questions of the shareholders related
to the issues included in the order of assembly, asked before and during the general assembly, together with answers to
those questions.” This rule is currently not applied. This rule will be applied, once the Partnership obtains the public
partnership status.
o
Rule N III.1 p.1: „Except for actions listed in legal regulations, the Supervisory Board should: once a year, perform and
present during a normal general assembly a compact evaluation of the state of the Partnership, including evaluation of
internal control system and risk management system, important for the Partnership.” This rules is not and will not be
applied in the part related to system evaluation. Because no committees exist within the Supervisory Board, which are
Page 98
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
responsible for evaluation of the internal control system and risk management system significant for the company, the
Supervisory Board will not present an evaluation of these systems to the general assembly.
o
Rule N III.7: „At least one audit committee should function within the Supervisory Board. This committee should include at
least member, which is independent from the Partnership and from the entities strictly related to the Partnership,
competent in the area of accounting and finances. In partnerships, which have the Supervisory Board consisting of the
minimal number of members provided by law, the Supervisory Board can perform the duties of the committee.”
This rule is not and will not be applied, since no committees function within the Supervisory Boards. The Partnership takes
the stance, that separation of committees within the Supervisory Board has no justification. The Supervisory Board
collegially works and makes decisions regarding competences of the committees. The Supervisory Board consists of
members having proper knowledge and competences in this field.
th
th
Within the Issuing Party no separate Audit Committee or a Salary Committee exists. On June 6 , 2009, an act dated May 7 ,
2009 on expert auditors and their self-governing bodies, entitites approved for studying financial reports and on public
o
supervision (Dz. U. 2009 r., N 77, pos. 649) went into effect, according to which, within the structure of a party issuing
securitied approved for circulation on a regulated market of a EU member state, an audit committee should exist,
consisting of at least 3 members elected from the members of the supervisory board. At least one member of the audit
committee should meet conditions of independence defined in the act and should be qualified in accounting or financial
revision. Because of this, the Issuing Party indicates that once its securities are approved for circulation, it will be necessary
to elect an audit committee, which meets requirements defined in the said act, which may make changes in the staff of
Supervisory Board necessary.
o
Rule N III.8: „In the field of duties and functioning of committess acting within the Supervisory Board, the Appendix I to the
th
Suggestion of the European Committee date February 15 , 2005, on the role of non-executive directors (…).”
o
This rule is not and will not be used by the Supervisory Board of Rank Progress S.A., because the N 7 rule part III „Good
Practices used by the Supervisory Boards members” is not applied. No committees function within the Supervisory Board.

International Standards of Financial Reporting (ISFR) and interpretations related to them, published as executive
regulations by the European Committee and which apply to the yearly reporting, and in the field, which is not
regulated in these Standards, according to the requirements of the Act on accounting and to executive
regulations issued on the basis of this Act.
As of the date of approval of these historical financial information for publishing, taking into account the fact that the
process of ISFR standards implementation is underway within EU and the activity of the Group, in the field of accounting
rules applied by the Group no significant differences have been observed between effective ISFR standards, and the ISFR

activity of other companies of the Group have been observed, with the exception of the dependent unit E.F. Progress IV Sp.
z o.o., the Board of which has lodged a bankruptcy application with a possibility of agreement to the proper court, this
Page 128

The Group does not predict that introduction of these standards or interpretations could significantly influence the
accounting rules (policy) applied by the Capital Group.
In 2009, the European Union approved for useinterpretations and further changes to the existing ISFR standards,
introduced by the IASR. The Group does not predict that application of these changes and interpretations could significantly
influence the accounting policy applied by the Capital Group, with the exception of changes introduced to MSR 40
st
„Investment real estates”, which apply to periods starding on January 1 , 2009 or later. According to these changes, entities
which accepted a model of evaluation of investment real estates to their fair value are obliged to perform such evaluation
also for real estates under construction. According to the previously effective rules, the Issuing Party has evaluated real
Page 129
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
estates under construction according to the MSR 16 i.e. historical cost of creation of purchase, thus the application of the
modified evaluation model will cause evaluation of the difference from overestimation of these real estate in periods
previous to the period, in which the real estate was released for use. Because no evaluations to the fair values for the real
estates under construction, owned by the Issuing Party are available, the influence of application of new rules to this data
for each balance day included in the historical financial information cannot be defined.
Additionally, the Group does not predict, that application of standards, which are already published, but not approved by
the EU, should significantly influence data presented in this Prospectus as historical financial information.
10. Significant values based on professional judgement and estimations
The Board of the Dominant Unit has used the best of its knowledge related to the applied standards and interpretations, as
well as to methods and rules of evaluation of particular entries of these historical financial information. Preparation of
historical financial information according to the ISFR required the Board to make some estimations and assumptions, which
are reflected in this information. The actual results may differ from these estimations.
Below, the basic assumptions related to the future are discusses, along with other key uncertainity sources as of the
balance date, which are related to a significant risk of a large correction of balance value of assets and obligations in the
next financial year.
Leasing contracts classification
The Group is a party of leasing contracts, which meet the requirements of financial leasing contracts according to the
Board.
Assets and reserves for delayed income tax
Assets and reserves for delayed income tax are evaluated using tax rates, which, according to the effective regulations, will
be applied at the moment of asset implementations or reserve cancellation, taking tax regulations in legal or actual effect
on the balance day, as basis. The Group defines the part of assets by virtue of delayed income tax, basing on the
assumption that a tax profit will be obtained, which will allow its use. Drop of tax results in the future could render this
assumption irrelevant.’
Depreciation fees
The level of depreciation is defined on the basis of predicted period of economic usefulness of elements of tangible fixed
assets and non-material values. These estimations are based on predicted life cycles of particular tangible fixed assets,
which may change in the future.
Evaluation of investment real estates to their fair value
The Group evaluates investment real estates according to a fair value model, using evaluations made by professional
experts.
Extracts updating supplies value
The Group makes an estimation for each balance day, if there are any indications of value loss for real estates classified as
supplies. If such indications of value loss exist, the Group makes extracts, which update the real estate value to the level of
recovered value, i.e. to the higher of two values: fair value minus sale costs or useful value.
Extracts updating obligations
The Group has updated values of obligations, estimated the probability of obtaining income from outdated active debts and
loans given and estimated the value of lost income, for which an updating extract was made.
Fair value of derivative instruments
The Group has defined the fair value of derivative financial instruments, which are not quoted on active markets (eg.
forward contracts) on the basis of evaluations obtained from banks, which are parties of these contracts. These evaluations
include discounted future flows generated by these instruments and by predictes currency rates.
11. Important accounting rules
Basis of preparation
Historical financial information has been prepared according to the rule of historical cost, with the exception of evaluation
of investment real estates to their fair values and evaluation of derivative financial instruments. The historical financial
information have been presented in Polish currency, and all values, unless stated otherwise, are given in thousands of
Polish zlotys.
Consolidation rules
Page 130
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
Financial reports of dependent companies are created for the same reporting periods as the reports of Dominating Unit,
applying coherent accounting rules, on the basis of uniform accounting rules applied to the transactions and similar
economic events. Corrections are introduced in order to eliminate discrepancies in the applied accounting rules.
The Dominating Unit and dependent units prepare unitary financial reports according to the Polish Accouting Standards
(„PAS”), thus, for the needs of consolidation, they are adjusted to the ISFRF.
All significant saldos and transactions between the units of the Group, including unsettled profits and losses resulting from
transactions made within the Group, have been wholly eliminated.
The dependent units undergo consolidation in the period from taking the control over them by the Group, and they stop
being consolidated until the date of control cessation. The control of the Dominating Unit takes place then, when it directly
or indirectly, thorugh its dependent parties, owns more than a half of votes in the given company, unless it can be proven
that such ownership does not grant the control over the company. The control also takes place then, when the Unit can
influence the financial and operational policy of the particular unit.
Participations of the minority in the net assets (excluding value of the company) of consolidated dependent entities are
presented in a separate position of own capital „Minority participations”. Minority participations consist of value of shares
on the day of business units fusion and minority shares in the changes of own capital, starting from the date of the fusion.
Losses assigned to minority participations, which exceed the participation in the basic capital of the entity, are allocated to
the Group’s shares, with the exception of binding obligation and the ability of minor shareholders to perform additional
investments, which are about to cover the losses.
Business entities fusions
Overtakes of dependent units are settled using the purchase method. The cost of units fusion is evaluated to aggregated
fair value (as of the payment date) of assets transfered, taken or overtaken obligations and capital instruments issued by
the Group in exchange for overtaking the dependent unit, increased by costs directly related to the fusion of business units.
Identifiable assets, obligations and conditional obligations of the overtaken unit, meeting the inclusion requirements
according to ISFR 3 „Business units fusion" are included in the fair value as of the overtake date, excluding fixed assets (or
groups for disposal), classified as destined for sale, according to ISFR 5 „Fixed assets designed for disposal and activity
cancellation", included in and evaluated to the fair value minus sales costs.
Company value
The value of the company created as a result of the overtake results from the event of surplus of unit overtake cost in
comparison to the participation of the Group in net fair value of identifiable assets, obligations and conditional obligations
of the dependent unit, associated unit or a joint venture, included as of the overtake date.
The value of the company is initally included as an element of assets after the cost, and then evaluated according to the
cost minus the accumulated loss by virtue of values loss.
For the needs of value loss testing, the value of the company is allocated to the particular units of the Group generating
monetary flows, which should make profit from the synergies resulting from the fusion.
Investment real estates
Investment real estates are defined as a ground, a building or a part of a building, which is treated by the Group as a source
of rental income or which the Group holds because of the increase of its value. The condition of inclusion in this balance
entry is the probability of obtaining economic benefits by virtue of ownership of the given real estate and the possibility of
creditable estimation of purchase cost or of creation cost.
The initial inclusion of investment real estates is made according to the purchase price, including transaction costs. The
balance value of this element of the assets includes the cost of replacement of a part of the investment real estate the
moment the cost is paid, if the inclusion criteria are met, and if the cost does not include current maintenance of the real
estate. After the inital inclusion, the investment real estates are listed according to their real values. Profits or losses
resulting from changes of the real value of investment real estates are included in the account of profits and losses for the
period they have taken place.
The investment real estates are removed from the balance in the case of their disposal or in the case of permanent removal
of the real estate from use, if no future profits are expected from its sale. All profits or losses resulting from the removal of
the investment real estate from the balance are included in the account of profits and losses for the period they have taken
place.
Page 131
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
Transfers of assets to the investment real estates are made only then, when their mode of use is changed, as confirmed by
the end of assets element usage by the owner, by signing an operational leasing contract or by finishing construction
works/creation of the investment real estate. If the element of assets used by the owner becomes an investment real
estate, the Group applies rules described in the Fixed assets part until the mode of usage for this real estate is changed. In
the case of transfer of assets from the supples to the investment real estate, the difference of fair value of the real estate
estimated as of the transfer date and its previous balance value is included in the account of profits and losses. When the
Group finishes construction works or the creation process of an investment real estate, the difference between the fair
value estimated for this day and its previous balance value is included in the account of profits and losses.
In the case of a transfer of investment real estate to the assets used by the owner or to the supplies, the suspected costs of
such an element of the assets, which will be accepted for its inclusion in another category is equal to the fair value of the
real estate evaluated on the date of the usage mode change.
Investment real estates under construction
The investment real estates are listed in the real estate entry as real estates under construction until the time their
construction is finished or the time they are created. Costs of agent commissions for finishing the commercial area rental
contracts and expenses on finishing of the premises of the renting parties are included in active debts in other assets,
accoring to the rental contracts. These costs are later included in the overestimation amount of investment real estates,
which they are related to.
Fixed assets
Fixed assets acquired in separate transactions are listed at their historical cost minus the cancellation and accumulated loss
caused by the value loss. The depreciation is calculated using a linear method for the predicted usage period of these
assets. The predicted usage period and the depreciation are verified at the end of each yearly reporting period, and the
effects of changes in these estimations are related to future periods.
Assets maintained on the basis of financial leasing contracts are depreciated through their predicted usage period using the
same rules as in the case of own assets, if there is a certainity of obtaining ownership rights before the end of the leasing
period. Otherwise, these assets are depreciated, but not longer then the leasing period.
Profits or losses resulting from sales / liquidation or end of usage of the entries of tangible fixed assets is defined as the
difference between the sales income and the balance value of these entries, and they are included in the account of profits
and losses.
Non-material values
Non-material values acquired in separate transactions are listed at their historical cost minus the cancellation and
accumulated loss caused by the value loss. The depreciation is calculated using a linear method for the predicted usage
period of these assets. The predicted usage period and the depreciation are verified at the end of each yearly reporting
period, and the effects of changes in these estimations are related to future periods.
Non-material values overtaken during a fusion of business entities are identified and included as separated from the value
of the company, if they meet the definition of non-material and legal values and their fair value can be reliably estimated.
The cost of such assets corresponds to their fair values as of the overtake date.
After the initial inclusion, such values are listed at their historical cost minus the cancellation and accumulated loss caused
by the value loss in the same way, as non-material and legal values obtained in separate transactions.
Loss of value of tangible fixed assets and non-material values
For each balance day, the Group performs a survey of balance values of owned fixed assets and non-material values in
order to state, if there are indications of loss of their value. If such indications were confirmed, the recollectable value of
such an element of the assets is estimated in order to define a potential extract by this virtue.
Assets and reserve by virtue of delayed income tax
The delayed tax is calculated using a balance obligations method as a tax subjected to future payment or return, related to
differences between balance values of assets and credits and their taxation values used to calculate the tax basis.
The reserve for delayd tax is subtracted from all positive transitory differences subjected to taxation, while the element of
the assets by virtue of delayed tax is defined to the level of probable decrease of future tax profits by the defined transition
differences. The assets entry or obligation by virtue of delayed tax does not form, if the transition difference forms by virtue
of the company value or by virtue of the initial inclusion (with the exception of inclusion after business entities fusion) of
Page 132
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
other element of the assets or a transaction obligation, which does not influence either the tax result, or the accounting
result.
The reserve for delayed tax is subtracted from transition tax differences formed as a result of investment in dependent
companies, associated companies and participations in joint ventures, unless the Group is able to control the moment of
reversal of the transition difference and if it is probable, that the transition difference does not reverse in the predictable
future. Assets by virtue of delayed tax resulting from the transition differences in deductions related to such investments
and participations is included in the scope corresponding to probable, taxable profits, which could be compensated using
transition differences, if it is probable that these differences will not reserve in the predictable future.
The balance value of an element of assets by virtue of delayed tax is a subject to survey on each balance day, and if
expected future tax profits will be to small to recollect the element of assets or a part of it, then this values has to be
properly lowered.
Assets and obligations by virtue of delayed tax are calculated using tax rates, which wil be in effect the moment the asset
entry is implemented or when the obligation becomes executable, according to the tax regulations (fees) in legal or actual
effect on the balance day. The evaluation of assets and obligations by virtue of delayed tax reflects tax consequences of the
way, the Group wants to use in order to recollect or to settle the balance value of assets and obligations as of the day of
preparation of the financial report.
Assets and obligations by virtue of delayed tax are compensated in the case, when the right to compensate current entries
of assets and tax obligations exist, if these entries are taxed by the same tax organ, and if the Group wants to settle its
current assets and tax obligations as net values.
Supplies (reserves)
The supplies include: preproducts and products being produced, ready products, goods and prepayments for supplies.
Because of the activity specifics, the purchased grounds or rights or perpetual use of the ground are classified as products
being produced, if the ground is destined for housing, or as goods for sale, if the ground is destined for sale. Ready products
include mainly apartments and facilities sold by final contracts. The supplies of fixed elements of current wealth are
evaluated according to their values corresponding to the purchase price of ground real estates and costs of creation of
development activity products, increased by activated financial costs. Supplies related to long-term construction contracts
are evaluated according to suggestions of MSR Nr 11 "Construction works contracts". The supplies are valued not higher
than the potential net value of sale.
Active debts by virtue of supplies and services and other active debts
Active debts by virtue of supplies and services are included and listed according to the initially invoiced amounts, including
an updating extract for non-executable active debts. The updating extract for questionable active debts are included in the
account of profits and losses if their non-exectuability is confirmed.
If the monetary flow in time is significant, then the value of active debt is defined by discounting forecasted future
monetary flows to their current value using gross discount rate, which reflects current market evaluations of monetary
value in time. If a discount-based method was used, the increase of active debt in time is included as financial income.
Monetary assets and their equivalents
Monetary assets and short-term deposits listed in the balance include monetary assets in the bank and in the cashier,
together with short-term deposits with initial due dates not longer than three months.
The saldo of monetary assets and their equivalents listed in the monetary flow accounts consists of the aforementioned
monetary assets and their equivalent, minus unpaid loans in the current accounts.
Monetary assets in foreign currencies are evaluated at the average NBP rate for the reporting day. Currency rate diffrences
related to monetary assets in foreign currencies and operations on foreign currencies (forex) are included in the account of
profits and losses.
Financial assets
Financial assets are divided into the following categories:
 Financial assets maintained until their execution date,
 Financial assets evaluated to the fair value by the financial result,
 Granted loans and active debts,
 Financial assets available for sale.
Page 133
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
Financial assets held to the execution date are investments with defined or definable payments and a defined executability
date, which the Group intends to hold and has the ability to hold them until that date. Financial assets held until the
execution date are evaluated according to their depreciated cost using the method of effective interest rate. Financial
assets held to execution date are classified as long-term assets, if their due date exceeds 12 months from the balance day.
Financial assets obtained in order to generate profit as a result of short-term price fluctuations are classified as financial
assets, evaluated to their fair value by the financial result. Derivative instruments are also classified as designed for
circulation, unless these are instruments designed as effective securing instruments or financial promise contracts. Financial
assets evaluated to their fair value by financial result are evaluated to their fair value by taking into account their market
value on the balance day without taking into account the costs of sale transaction. Changes of value of these instruments
are included in the account of profits and losses as financial incomes or costs. Financial assets evaluated to their fair value
are classified as current assets. If a contract contains one or more built-in derivative instruments, then the entire contract
may be classified within the category of financial assets evaluated to their fair value by the financial result.
Granted loans and active debts are financial assets not classified as derivative instruments, with defined or definable
payments, not quoted on the active market. They are classified as current assets, if their execution date does not exceed a
current cycle since the balance day. Granted loans and active debts with execution date exceeding a current cycle since the
balance day are classified as fixed assets.
All other financial assets are financial assets available for sale. Financial assets available for sale are included according to
their fair value. If they have no stock quotations on the open market and a reliable estimation if their fair value using
alternative methods is not possible, then the financial assets available for sale are included at their purchase price,
corrected with extract on the value loss. The positive and negative diffrence between the fair value of the assets available
for sale (if there is a market price defined on an active market or the fair value of which can be defined in other reliable
way,) and their purchase price, minus delayed tax, is included in the reserve capital from evaluation update. The drop of
value of assets available for sale caused by loss of value is included in the account of profits and losses as a financial cost.
Purchases and sales of financial assets are defined on the day of transaction. Upon its initial inclusion, the element of
financial assets is evaluated to its fair value, increased (in the case of element of assets not classified as evaluated to its fair
price by financial results) by the transaction costs, which can be directly assigned to the purchase.
The element of financial assets is removed from the balane, if the Group loses control over legal contracts consisting that
particular financial instrument; it usually takes place in the case of instrument sales or when all monetary assets flow
assigned to the particular instruments are transferred to an independent third party.
Reserves
Reserves are listed in the case of creation of current obligations within the Group (legal or normative), which are a
consequence of past events, the probability of settling them by the Group is high and the amount of these obligations can
be reliably evaluated.
The included reserve amount reflects the most precise estimation of amount required for settlement of a current obligation
as of the balance day, including risk and uncertainity related to this obligation. If the reserve is evaluated using the method
of estimated monetary flow required for the settlement of the current obligation, its balance value corresponds to the
curent value of these flows.
If there is a possibility that a part, or the entire economic profits required to settle the reserve could be recollected from a
third party, this active debt is included as an element of assets, if the probability of recollection of this amount is high and if
it can be reliably evaluated.
Financial obligations
Commercial obligations are evaluated to the payment amount.
Other financial obligations, the settlement of which is made by release of financial assets other than monetary assets or
exchange for financial instruments, according to the contract, are evaluated to their fair value.
Financial obligations, which are not financial instruments evaluated to their fair value by the financial result, are evaluated
according to the depreciated cost using the method of effective interest rate.
Interest-rated bank loans and debt securities
All bank loans and debt securities are included (in the initial inclusion) according to the fair value minus costs related to
obtaining the loan.
Page 134
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
After the initial inclusion, all rated loans and debt securities are then evaluated according to their depreciated cost, using
the method of effective interest rate, with the exception of obligations designed for secured positions, which are evaluated
according to the accounting rules for securities or obligations classified upon the initial inclusion as financial instruments
evaluated to their fair value by the financial result.
During the estimation of depreciated cost, one includes costs related to obtaining the loan and discounts or bonuses
obtained during the settlement of the obligation.
Profits and losses are included in the account of profits and losses at the moment they are removed from the balance, and
also in proper periods of the instrument’s life, using the effective interest rate method.
Own capital
Own capitals and reserve capitals are evaluaed according to their nominal value. Differences between the market value of
obtained payment and the nominal value of shares is included in the reserve capital. The costs of shares issue, related to
the increase of the capital, lower the reserve capital.
The Group also lists minority participations in a separate entry of the own capital.
The Group reveals undivided profit from the previous years, the result of the period and results of the transformation from
a general partnership to the stock partnership in the entry „Profits held”.
Inclusion of sales income
The incomes and profits are understood as creation of economic benefits during the reporting period, which have a reliably
defined value, as an increase of assets value or as a decrease of obligations value, which will lead to the increase of own
capital or to decrease its deficiency in a way different than bringing in assets by shareholders or owners.
Sales income is understood as due or received amounts from the sales of material elements and services, minus the
effective VAT tax. The sales incomes are defined in the value expressed in real sales prices, including bonifications and
bonuses.
Income from products, goods and materials sales are included, when the significant risk and benefits from the ownership
right to the products, goods and materials have been passed on to the buyer. Income from construction services sales and
implementation period shorter than 6 months are defined at the moment the construction service is finished. The Group
includes the sales income as values of probable benefits obtained in the sale transactions. All conditional income resulting
from the sales transactions are included, when all significant conditions of the sales transaction are met and if there is a
high probability of obtaining significant economic benefits by the Group.
The Group has assumed a rules, that the moment of passing the significant risk and benefits from the ownership rights to
investments, products, goods and materials to the buyer takes places no earlier than at the moment of signing the proper
authenticated deed, if the sale transaction requires it. This is the case mainly for real estate sales (grounds and other real
estates being a subject of circulation, such as buildings created by the Partnership, including apartments).
Income from real estate rents are included using a linear method for the rental period, according to the signed contracts.
Income by virtue of interest rates and dividends
Income by virtue of dividends are included, when the right of shareholders to obtain the payment is created.
Income by virtue of interest rates is included as increasing, according to their creation time, by relation to the amount of
the capital which is yet to be paid, including the effective interest rate, namely, the interest rate which effectively discounts
future monetary income predicted for the expected period of usage of the given element of assets to the net balance value
of that element.
Leasing
Leasing is classified as financial leasing, when all potential benefits and the risk of being an owner are transferred to the
leasing receiver, as specified in the contract. All other leasingu types are treated as current leasing.
Foreign currencies
The functional currency of the Group is Polish zloty, which is the currency of basic economic environment of the Group’s
activity.
Page 135
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
Transactions performed in a currency other than Polish zloty are included according to the given currency rate of the day of
transaction. Monetary obligations and assets denominated in foreign currencies are recalculated according to the currency
rate of the balance day, i.e. the average rate set by the NBP. Non-monetary assets and obligations evaluated to their fair
value and denominated in foreign currencies are evaluated according to the rate of the day, when the evaluation to the fair
value was performed. Non-monetary entries evaluated in foreign currencies according to their historical cost are not
renominated again.
All currency rate differences are included in the account of profits and losses in the period they take place, with the
exception of:
 Rate differences related to the assets under construction, designed for future production use, which are included in
the costs of these assets and treated as corrections of costs of interest rate loans granted in foreign currencies,
 Currency rate differences resulting from transactions performed as a security measure against a specific currency risk,
currency rate differences resulting from entries of monetary active debts or obligations against foreign units, which are
not planned to be settled with or if such settlements are not probalbe, forming a part of net investments in a unit
located abroad and included in reserve capital for foreign currency recalculations and in net profit/loss from the
disposal of the investment.

External financing costs
External financing costs directly related to purchase or creation of elements of assets requiring a longer time in order to be
released for use or sale, are added to the costs of creating such assets, until the moment, when these assets are in general
ready for the planned use or sale. Income from the investment obtained as a result of short-term investment of obtained
external assets before investing them in the discussed assets lower the value of external financing costs, which are a subject
to capitalisation.
All other costs of financial investment are directly included in the account of profits and losses for the period they took
place.
Current tax
Current tax duties are calculated on the basis of tax results (tax basis) of the given tax year. Tax profit (loss) differs from the
net accounting profit (loss), because of exclusion of taxable incomes and costs forming the costs of income generation in
the next years and costs, which will never by subjected to taxation. The duty of the Group by virtue of current tax is
calculated on the basis of tax rates effective in the given tax year.

13. Correction of previous periods error
st
st
An error was found in the financial report for the period from January 1 , 2007 to December 31 , 2007, namely, an
incorrent inclusion of an amount of 853 000 PLN in the cost of sold goods and materials, representing value of the grounds
and expenses on these grounds, located in Zgorzelec. The transaction of sale of these ground has taken place in 2009, thus
st
the Group made a correction to the report for the year ended on December 31 , 2007, which was an increase of goods
level at the end of 2007, and a decrease of the value of goods sold, and as a consequence – decrease of the value of goods
sold, and thus – an increase of the financial result by the amount of 853 000 PLN.
Below, the effects of inclusion of the aforementioned operation in the financial report for the tax year ending in 2007, are

HIT Zarząd Majątkiem Polska Legnica 1 Sp. z o.o.
st
The Dominating Unit purchased on September 21 , 2004 100% of shares of HIT Zarząd Majątkiem Polska Legnica 1 Sp. z
o.o., taking full control over this entity.
This overtake was settled according to the ISFR 3 regulations, using purchase method.
Because of the fact, that due to the first allocation of purchase price of the net fair value of purchased assets, a surplus of
net fair value of purchased shares was created against the purchase price, the Group has performed the allocation once
again. The new evaluation did not change the purchase settlement, however, and the created surplus of 3 811 000 PLN was
included in the result for the period, i.e. year 2004.
The net fair value as of the purchase date totalled 12 802 000 PLN, while the purchase price was 9 412 000 PLN, which
caused the surplus of 3 811 000 PLN.
KMM Sp. z o.o. in liquidation
th

Allocation of purchase price to the net fair value of purchased assets was made, which caused a positive company value in
the form of a surplus of the purchase price (240 000 PLN) over the net fair value of the assets (57 000 PLN) with the amount
of 183 000 PLN.
Other companies of the Group

The fundamental entry of type-related costs of the Group in 2008 is formed of external services, where the biggest entry
consists of subcontractory works related to the construction investments. At the same time, the Group obtained the biggest
income from sales of commercial objects.
In the period of 2007 – 2006 the biggest part of type-related costs was formed by the value of sold goods and materials,
which was caused by a more intensive engagement of the Group in the real estate circulation.

44. Goals and rules of financial risk management
The main financial instruments used by the Group include: bank loans, loans in the current account, financial leasing
contracts and obtained loans. The main goal of these financial instruments is to obtain monetary assets for the activity of
the Group. The Group also has financial assets, such as active debts by virtue of supplies and services, monetary assets and
short-term deposits, which are created as a direct result of its activity. In 2008, the Group has signed future forward
contracts, which were meant to secure the risk of unfavourable changes of Euro rates in the case of renomination of bank
loans from PLN to EUR. The details of these transactions were described in the note 25. In the period of 2007-2006, the
Group did not made any transactions using derivative financial instruments. The main types of risk resulting from the
financial instruments of the Group include the risk of monetary flows interest rates, viability risk, currency risk and loan risk.
The Board verifies and agrees rules of management of each of these risk types – these rules have been shortly described
below.
Page 158
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
Interest rate risk
Vulnerability of the Group to the risk caused by changes of market interest rates is related mainly to the long-term financial
obligations with variable interest rates, i.e. bank loans and obligations by virtue of leasing contracts. However, curremt
financial crisis may cause changes of the evaluation of this risk.
Until the end of 2008 the Group thought that the interest rate risk had no significant influence on its financial results. In the
future, the Group plans to protect itself from unfavourable changes of the interest rates by signing contracts with constant
interest rates.
Loan risk
The Group makes transactions only with renown companies with good creditibility. All customers, who want to use trade
loans, are subjected to a verification procedure.
Additionally, thanks to constant monitoring of active debt levels, the risk, that the Group will have active debts, which are
impossible to be executed, is small. Age structutre ot trade active debts has been presented in note 20.
In relation to other financial assets of the Group, such as monetary assets and its equivalent, the loan risk of the Group
arises as a result of the inability of the other party to make payments, and maximum exposure to this risk is equal to the
balance value of these instruments.
Currency risk
The Group signs the majority of rental contracts for its areas in Euro, and this creates a currency risk related to
unfavourable changes of Euro, related to PLN. In order to protect itself against the risk of Euro rate change as the currency
used to settle the income from rent, the Group decided in 2007 to renominate bank loans taken for investment financing,
from PLN to Euro. Future investment in real estates with flows dependent on Euro will be largely secured with bank loans
financing these investments, denominated in Euro.
In 2008, the Group has signed currency future forward contracts, which were meant to serve as protection against the risk
of unfavourable changes of Euro rate in the case of renomination of bank loans obtained in 2008, from PLN to Euro. The
details of these transactions have been described in note 25.
Viability risk
The Group monitors the risk of lack of funds, using the tool of periodical viability planning.
This tool includes due dates of both investments and financial assets (e.g. active debt account, other financial assets) and
predicted monetary flows from current activity.
The goal of the Group is holding balance between the continuity and the flexibility of financing, by using various funding
sources, such as loans in current acount, financial leasing contracts.
45. Sensibility analysis
Goals and rules of loan risk management:
The main types of loan risk resulting from the financial instruments of the Group include: interest rate risk, currency risk,
viability risk and loan risk.
Interest rate risk:
The Group uses obligations mainly in the form of loans with variable interest rates. In 2008, the average weighted interest

Changes of applied accounting rules
Below, new or changed ISFR regulations and new CIIAR interpretations (approved or undergoing approval by the
st
European Union), which are effective as of January 1 , 2009:
ISFR 8 Operational segments – The Group has presented the report according to the operational segments, in
accordance with the new ISFR 8 regulations.
ISFR 1 (change) „First instance of application of International Standards of Financial Reporting" and to MSR 27 (zmiana)
"Consolidated and unitary financial reports "- published on May 22nd 2008, modified ISFR 1 and MSR 27 is effective in
st
relation to yearly periods starting on January 1 , 2009 of later.
MSR 32 (change) „Financial instruments: presentation" and MSR 1 (change) "Financial reports presentation"- published
th
st
on February 14 , 2008, the modified Standard is effective in relation to reporting periods starting on July 1 , 2009 or
later.

ISFR (2008) „Amendments to the International Standards of Financial Reporting 2008" – published on May 22 , 2008.
st
The majority of amendments is effective for yearly periods starting on January 1 , 2009 or after that date.
rd
Interpretation of CIIAR 15 „Contracts on real estate construction"- CIIAR 15 interpretation, published on July 3 , 2008,
st
is applied to yearly financial reports for the periods starting on January 1 , 2009 or later. This interpretation has not
been approved by the European Union.
Interpretation of CIIAR 16 „Net securities of investments in a foreign entity "- CIIAR 15 interpretation, published on July
rd
st
3 , 2008, is applied to yearly financial reports starting on October 1 , 2008 or later.
th
MSR 23 (updated) "Costs of external financing", published on December 10 , 2008, is effective in relation to the yearly
st
periods starting on January 1 , 2009 or later.
th
MSR 1 (updated) "Financial report presentation", published on December 17 , 2008, is effective in relation to yearly
st
periods starting on January 1 , 2009, or later.
MSSF 2 (change) .Payments in the form of shares – Conditions of obtaining rights and their cancellation", published on
th
st
January 17 , 2008, it is effective in relation to yearly periods starting on January 1 , 2009, or later.
Application of the updated MSR 1 "Financial reports presentation", had influenced the field of naming particular
reports and presenting only transactions with the owners in the summary of changes in consolidated own
capitals. Other elements were included separately, in a consolidated summary of total income.
Application of the updated MSR 40 "Investment real estates", to the field of real estates under construction, forces the
model of evaluation to the fair price to be applied to them. However, in a case when the fair value of an
investment real estate under construction cannot be reliably evaluated, it is evaluated according to the historical
cost model, to the earlier date of these: date of finish of the construction works, or a moment, in which the
possibility of reliable evaluation of the fair price is possible. On this basis, the Partnership continues to evaluate
the investment real estates under construction according to the historical cost model. Application of the updated
MSR 40 does not cause a necessity of making changes in the financial data for previous periods in order to obtain
their comparability.
Application of ISFR 8 "Operational segments", which replaced MSR 14 "Reporting related to activity segments "
influenced the field of revealing data related to the operational segments of the Group, according to which the
strategic decision within the Group are made.
Except for the listed ones, other changes of standards and interpretations did not cause significant changes in the
accounting policy of the Group and in data presentation in the mid-year financial information.

Significant values based on professional judgement and estimation
The Board of the Dominating Unit has used the best of its knowledge related to the standards and interpretations used, as
well as to methods and rules of evaluation of particular entries of these mid-year financial information. The preparation of
the mid-year financial information according to ISFR, required the Board to make some estimations and assumptions, which
are reflected in these informations. The real results may differ from these estimations.
Below, the basic assumptions regarding the future and othey key uncertainity sources existing as of the balance day, which
are connected with a significant risk of a significant correction of balance value of assets and obligations in the next
financial periods.
Classification of leasing contracts
The Group is a party of leasing contract, which, according to the Board, fulfill the conditions of financial leasing.
Assets and reserves for delayed income tax
Assets and reserve by virtue of delayed income tax are evaluated using tax rates, which, according to the legal regulations,
will be in effect at the moment of asset implementation or reserve dissolution, by taking legal tax regulations legally or
actually effective on the balance day, as the basis of evaluation. The Group recognizes the element of assets by virtue of
delayed income tax, basing on the assumption that in the future, a tax income will be gained, which would allow to use it. A
drop of tax results in the future could cause, that this assumption could become irrelevant.
Depreciation rates
The level of depreciation rates is set on the basis of predicted period of economic usefulness of elements of tangible fixed
assets and non-material values. These estimations are based on predicted file cycles of particular elements of fixed assets,
which can be chnaged in the future.
Fair value of investment real estates
The Group evaluates investment real estates according to the fair value model, using evaluations of independent experts, at
least once a year. In other cases, the Group makes its own estimations on the basis of previously obtained estimated
operates.
Page 181
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
Extracts updating the value of supplies
The Group makes an evaluation on each balance date, if there are any suggestions of value loss of the real estates classified
as supplies. If such suggestions of value loss are obtained, the Group makes extracts updating the value of the real estate to
the recovered value level, i.e. to the higher of these two values: fair value minus disposal costs or useful value.
Extracts updating active debts
The Group has updated values of active debts, estimated the probability of obtaining income from active duties past their
due dae and estimated the value of lost income, for which an updating extract has been created.
Fair value of derivative instruments
The Group has defined the fair value of derivative financial instruments, not quoted on the active markets (eg. forward
contracts), on the basis of evaluations obtained from the banks, with which these contracts have been signed. The
evaluations include discounted future incomes, generated by these instruments and predicted foreign currencies rates.
8. The seasonal or cyclic character of activity of the Capital Group
In the opinion of the management of the Group, seasonal or cyclic character of the activity of units of the Group could not

20.7. Dividend policy
The proper organ for making a resolution on profit division (or on loss cover) and on dividend payment is the Ordinary
General Assembly, which, according to art. 395 CCC, should take place within 6 months after the end of each tax year. The
Ordinary General Assembly of a stock company sets the dividend level, date of determining the right to dividend and
dividend payment date (art. 348 § 3 CCC). The shareholders, who have shares in their accounts on the day, which is
declated by the General Assembly as the date of determination of the right to dividend, are entitiled to the dividend for the
given tax year.
The Status of the Issuing Party provides an option of dividend pre-payment. The pre-payments of dividend are made by the
Board of the Partnership. The pre-payment of dividend may take place, if the Partnership has the assets necessary for the
pre-payment. The pre-payment has to be approved by the Supervisory Board, and also, if the approved financial report for
the previous tax year shows a profit. The pre-payment can constitute no more than half of the profit made from the end of
the previous tax year, listed in a financial report studied by an expert auditor, increased by reserve capitals created from
the profit, which can be used by the Board to make pre-paymets, and decreased by uncovered losses and own shares. The
Board will inform about the pre-payment at least four weeks before the pre-payments are made, specifying the date for
which the financial report was made, the amount set for payment and the date of determination of shareholders entitled to
pre-payments. This day should be within the period of seven days from the date of first pre-payments.
The conditions and methods of dividend transfer are announced by the Partnership in the form of current reports,
according to §39 p. 1 sp 7 of the Regulation on current and periodic reports. The conditions and date of dividend transfer, if
the Genral Assembly decides to pay it, will be defined according to the rules accepted for public partnerships. Accordign to
§91 p. 1 of the Detailed Rules of Functioning of the National Deposit of Securities (KDPW), the Issuing Party is obliged to
inform the KDPW about the amount of the dividend, the date of determination of the right to dividend (defined in
regulations of Commercial Companies Code as the „dividend day”) and about the date of dividend payment. According to
§91 p. 2. of the Detailed Rules of Functioning of the KDPW, at least 9 days must pass between the date of determination of
right to dividend and the date of dividend payment. Additionally, according to §26 of the GPW Status, effective on the
regulated market, the Issuing Party is obliged to inform the GPW about the intention of dividend payment and to agree
with GPW all decisions regarding the dividend payment, which can influence the organisation and method of making stock
exchange transactions. The dividend payment will be made using a deposit system of KDPW. Dividend payment, to which
the shareholders owning dematerialised shares of the company are entitled, according to §97 of the Detailed Rules of
Functioning of th KDPW, is executed in such a way, that the Issuing Party leaves assets at the disposal of KDPW, which are
to be used to settle the rights to dividend on a monetary account or a bank account indicated by the KDPW, followed by the
division of assets obtained from the Issuing Party by the KDPW on the account of participators of KDPW, which in turn
transfer the assets to the accounts of particular shareholders.
One of the priority goals of the Rank Progress Spółka Akcyjna Partnership is to guarantee its Shareholders a possibility of
building their wealth in the aspect of increases of share prices by implementing an investment program, together with a
clear, long-term and stable dividend policy. The surplus of free assets, depending on the interests of the Partnership and on
proper monetary assets of the Partnership made by the supervising and managing bodies of the Partnership, will be
available for payment in cash. The dividend will be paid to the shareholders once a year, after the end of the tax year, on
the basis of a resolution made by the Ordinary General Assembly on designing the profit to be paid to the shareholders. The
Board intends to recommend the General Assembly a dividend payment on the level of 10% to 20% of yearly consolidated
net profit.
th
Additionally, the dividend payment, according to regulations of the loan contract on investment loand signed on June 5 ,
th
2008, with Bank Zachodni WBK S.A., requires a permission from this bank. On July 9 , 2008 Bank Zachodni WBK S.A. issued
a statement on permission for dividend payment equal to 25% of consolidated net profit of Rank Progress S.A. and its
dependent entities, under the condition, that:
Page 191




The dividend payment will not exceed 50% of unitary net profit of Rank Progress S.A. revealed for the tax year
preceeding the tax year, when the dividend payment takes place,
The factor defined as the amount of profit held for the tax year preceeding the tax year when the dividend payment
takes place, related to the sum of capital installments assigned to the tax year, when the dividend payment takes
place, will not be lower than 1,2,
No violations of conditions of bank loans signed by Rank Progress S.A. and Bank Zachodni WBK S.A will take place.
The dividend payment factor must reflect properly the interest of the Shareholders and the Partnership itself. After the end
of each tax year, the Board will present the application for dividend payment at the General Assembly, taking into account
market conditions and the environment of the Partnership. The information justifying the factor of dividend payment, will
be available to the Shareholders. The Partnership will execute the payment according to art. 348 § 3 KSH, which states, że
that the dividend day can be set at the date the resolution is made or within three months from that date. The definition of
deadlines related to the dividend payment and the very operation of dividend payment is performed according to the
regulations of KDPW. The General Assembly holds the right of final decision in this matter. The Board of the Issuing Party
predicts, that it will recommend the General Assembly a divident payment for the tax year of 2009.
The Issuing Party did not pay the dividend for 2006 and in the period of 1.01.2007 - 9.10.2007, because its activity was
based on the form of a commercial code company, namely a general partnership. The Partners of the legal predecessor of
the Issuing Party, however, were paid in the aforementioned periods proper amounts from the profit. Additionally, no
dividend was paid by the Issuing Party in 2008 and in 2009.

nd
On September 2 , 2008, Extraordinary Shareholders Assembly of KMM Sp. z o.o. made a resolution on liquidation of this
Partnership. Currently, the Liquidator executes actions related to the liquidation of the company and to the removal of the

Bankruptcy of E.F. Progress IV Sp. z o.o.
th
On August 14 , 2009, a company from the Group of the Issuing Party – E.F. Progress IV Sp. z o.o. has lodged in a bankruptcy
application with the possibility of an agreement annoucement. The proceeding regarding this issue is underway in the
District Court in Legnica. As of the date of application lodging, the total amount of debt of the Partnership to the creditors
was equal to 14 769 315,32 PLN (including due debt of 6 676 521,32 PLN), while the amount of 8 092 794 PLN consisted of
conditional debt, i.e. non-due/non-executable debt, resulting from the preinitial contract of ground sale signed with a third
party and this obligation became invalid on 16.12.2009 due to withdrawal of the third party from the preinitial sale
contract. As of the date of Prospectus approval, the debt of the company is equal to 6 676 521,32 PLN. E.F. Progress IV Sp. z
o.o. asks in the aformentioned application for division of the Creditors into two categories, where the company asks for
reduction of debt (main debts, interests and potential costs) in the first group by 25% and for payment of thus reduced debt
in 10 equal quarterly installments, paid at the end of each quarter, with the first installment to be paid within 12 months
from the date when the Court decision on the approval of agreement comes into effect, while in the second category it asks
for reduction of main debt by 40%, total redemption of interests and potential costs and for payment of thus reduced debts
in 12 equal quarterly installments, paid at the end of each quarter, with the first installment to be paid within 12 months
from the date when the Court decision on the approval of agreement comes into effect. According to the application of E.F.
Progress IV Sp. z o.o., this agreement is to be paid either from the profit obtained by the Partnership as a result of
implementation of investment plans (construction of a Commercial Centre), or from sales of real estates owned by the
Partnership, but after a change of their purpose in the local spatial development plan (i.e. in ca. 18 months). During the
initial meeting of creditors, they did not make any binding decision, because there was no quorum. Currently, the Issuing
Party waits for appointment of the next Court sessions, when the decisions regarding the bankruptcy of E.F. Progress IV Sp.
z o.o will be made.
20.8.2. Other proceedings, where the Issuing Party, company from its Capital Group or a shareholder
owning at least 5% of shares or of the total number of votes during the General Assembly of the
Issuing Party or of a company from its Capital Group, is a party in the proceeding
In relation to proceedings currently underway in the public administration organs, as well as to court and arbitrary
proceedings underway during the last 12 months, where the Issuing Party was a party in the proceeding, it has to be
pointed out that the Issuing Party is a party of two court proceedings, which might signiicantly influence its financial
situation or viability.
1.
Dispute with the City-Municipality of Grudziądz
th
On July 30 , 2009, the City-Municipality of Grudziądz instituted an action against the Issuing Party. The acting Party
demanded the Issuing Party to make a statement of will, which would contain a transfer of ownership of a real estate
located in Grudziądz, area of ca. 3,5 ha and a value of ca. 3 500 000 PLN (value of the subject of dispute). The basis of the
claim would be an „Obligating Contract of Free Ground Transfer Constituing a Condition of Implementation of Galeria
th
Grudziądz Commercial Centre Investment” of January 26 , 2006. According to the Issuing Party, the action instituted by the
City-Municipality of Grudziądz was irrelevant, thus it applied for a dismissal of the action in a response to the action and in
the following proceeding correspondence.
st
rd
The stance of the Issuing Party was also shared by the 1 Instance Court, which fully dismissed the action on December 3 ,
nd
th
2009, as well as the 2 Instance Court, which on April 8 , 2010 fully dismissed the appeal of the City-Municipality od
Grudziądz. The decision is legally effective.
2.
Dispute with Jogra 2 Sp. z o.o. company
Currently, the Issuing Party remains in a dispute with a Rathburn Holdings B.V. partnership („Buyer”), which is a dominating
entity of Jogra 2 Sp. z o.o., regarding the obligations of payment stated in p. 6.4.1.2 of the Registration Document.
Currently, the Issuing Party is negotiating with the Buyer in order to end the dispute arbitrarily. However, if no such
agreement is reached, the Issuing Party intends to use its rights which will enable its claims to be satisfied, i.e. e.g. from a
mortgage created on the real estate and from an authenticated deed in which the Buyer subjected itself willingly to an
execution of Sencond Tranche salary payment obligation to the Issuing Party, which is mentioned in p. 6.4.1.2 of the
Registration Document.
th
Additionally, on January 18 , 2010, Jogra 2 Sp. z o.o. has lodged in an application for protection of its claims in an amount
of 2 930 188,00 PLN which would result from a lack of agreement to the erasure of mortgage to the Issuing Party. On
rd
February 3 , 2010, the District Court in Legnica granted Jogra 2 Sp. z o.o. with the said protection (before the proceeding
for payment has started) by creating an obligatory mortgage on the real estate of the Issuing Party. However, right after the
said decision has been obtained, the Issuing Party has lodged in a complaint to the decision of the Court. The issuing Party
claims that the application lodged in by Jogra 2 Sp. z o.o. was fully irrelevant. The stance of the Issuing Party was shared by
Page 193
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
th
the Appeal Court in Wrocław, which changed the charged decision on March 30 , 2010, by dismissing the application for
protection.
20.8.2.1. Court proceedings, where the Issuing Party or a company from its Capital Group is a party in the proceeding
In regard to proceedings, which are underway before the public administration organs, as well as in regard to the court and
mediatory proceedings, which were underway during the last 12 months, and where the Issuing Party was a party in the
proceeding, it has to be pointed out that the Issuing Party is a party in one court proceeding, which can have a significant
influence on its financial situation or viability.
th
On July 30 , 2009, the Municipality-City of Grudziądz made a claim against the Issuing Party. The proceeding takes place
before the District Court in Toruń. The Claimant of the proceeding demands, that the Issuing Party has to present a
statement of will with the content of transferring the ownership of a real estate located in Grudziądz with the area of ca.
3,5 ha and a value of ca. 3 500 000 PLN (the value of the subject of dispute). The basis of the claim is a „Obligating Contract
Of Free Ground Transfer, Constituting a Condition for Implementation of the Investment of Galeria Grudziądz Commercial
th
Centre” signed on January 26 , 2006. In the opinion of the Issuing Party, the claim made by the Municipality-City of
Grudziądz is irrelevant, thus the Issuing Party demanded to revoke the claim in a response to the aforementioned claim and
in the following proceeding correspondence.
st
rd
The stand of the Issuing Party was supported by the 1 Instance Court, which on December 3 , 2009 revoked the claim in
its entirety. As of the date of Prospectus approval, this decision is not effectual.
20.8.2.2. Execution proceedings, where the Issuing Party or a company from its Capital Group is a party in the proceeding
Currently, or in the last 12 months, no execution proceedings have been underway against the Issuing Party and its
dependent companies.
20.8.2.3. Proceedings, where the Issuing Party is a shareholder of the Issuing Party or of a company from its Capital
Group, owning at least 5% of shares or of total number of votes during the General Assembly of the Issuing
Party or a company from its Capital Group
The Issuing Party does not know of any proceedings, where a shareholder of the Issuing Party or of a company from its
Capital Group is a party in the proceeding, and the result of which could have a significant influence on the activity of the
Issuing Party.
20.8.2.4. Proceedings before the administration organs related to the activity of the Issuing Party or of the companies
from its Capital Group
In the last twelve months before the date of Prospectus approval, no significant proceedings against the Issuing Party have
been underway before the administration organs, which could have a negative influence on the activity of the Issuing Party,
with the exception of the proceeding presented below.

Rights and priviledges related to shares of the Issuing Party are defined in the Status of the Issuing Party, in the CCC
regulations and in other regulations. In order to obtain more detailed information, one has to use an advice of an approved
solicitor.
According to § 3.2.2 of the Status, Series A Shares are registered shares priviledged in regard to votes during the General
Assembly, namely, two votes are allocated per each of these shares. Series B shares to bearer entitle to one vote during the

Rights with asset-related character, related to shares of the Issuing Party
1.
Right to dividend – participation in profit of the Partnership revealed in the financial report of the Partnership,
studied by an expert auditor, assigned by the General Assembly for payment to the shareholders (art. 347 CCC). The
profit is divided according to the number of shares. The Status does not predict any priviledges in regard to this
right, which means, that an equal dividend is assigned to all shares. The right to dividend for the given tax years is
held by these shareholders, who were entitled to shares on the date of resolution on profit division. An Ordinary
General Assembly of the public partnership defines the dividend day and the payment date. The dividend day can
be defined on the date of resolution, or within three months from that date (art. 348 CCC). The General Assembly
should take into account regulations of the National Deposit of Securities and of the Stock Exchange, when defining
the dividend day. The Issuing Party is obliged to inform the National Deposit of Securities about the level of dividend
assigned per share, about the date of the dividend day and about the payment date, by sending a resolution of the
proper organ of the Partnership on this matters immediately, but not later than 10 days before the dividend day.
The payment date can be defined at least on the tenth day after the dividend day. The National Deposit of
Securities passes the aforementioned information to all direct participators. The direct participators defined the
number of shares granting the right to dividend, allocated to their securities accounts, and send to the National
Deposit of Securities an information on:

Level of monetary assets, which should be transferred to the participators, related to the dividend payment,

Total amount of payable income tax from legal entities, which should be taken by the Issuing Party from
dividends paid through an agent,

Number of securities accounts managed for people being tax-payers of tax from legal entities.
On the payment date, the Issuing Party is obliged to leave assets assigned for execution of the right to dividend at
the disposal of the National Deposit of Securities. As a result of resolution on assignment of profit for division, the
shareholders obtain a claim for dividend payment. The claim becomes due as of the date indicated in the resolution
of the General Assembly and it is a subject of limitation using general rules. Legal regulations do not define te date,
when the rights to dividend cease to exist. In the case of tax-payers, who do not hold an office or the Board on the
territory of the Republic of Poland, which are subjects of the duty of income tax from dividends, have those tax
rates applied, which result from contracts on prevention of double tax, signed by the Republic of Poland or no tax
from them is collected according to the said contracts, only after a presentation of so called residency certificate,
issued by the proper tax administration to an entity entitled to deduction of flat rate income tax. The residence
certificate has to prove if the given entitiy is included in the scope of agreement on avoiding double tax, i.e. it is
entitled to use lower, preferential tax rates or to be exempted from tax. In the case, when doubts exist, the taxpayer will deduct the tax in amount predicted by the act. If a non-resident proves, that the decisions of the
international agreement predicting a reduction of the national tax rate (including a total exemption) apply to
him/her, he/she will be entitled to claim an overpayment statement and to return of tax, which was not due,
directly from the tax office. The amount assigned for division between shareholders cannot exceed the profit for the
last tax year, increased by undivided profits from the previous years and by amounts transferred from reserve
capitals created from the profits, which can be assigned to the dividend payment. Uncovered losses, own shares
and costs, which according to the Status or to the act should be spent from the profit for the last tax year on reserve
capitals (art. 348 § 1 CCC), should be deducted from this amount. The law, which is effective in Poland, does not
introduce other regulations regarding the dividend rate or the methods of its calculations, frequency and
cumulative or a non-cumulative nature of payments. No right other than the right of participation in the profits of

the Issuing Party is related to the shares of Issuing Party, in particular, the Status of the Issuing Party does not
predict an award of participation in the profits of the Partnership by issuing nominal foundation certificates, in
order to pay for services made during the formation of the Partnership, or by issuing use certificates in exchange for
redeemed shares.
Right of subscription – Priviledged rights of subscription for new shares related to the number of owned shares.
According to the conditions specified in art. 433 CCC, the shareholders can be stripped of the right of subscription,
partially or totally, in the interest of the Partnership, through the powers of a resolution of the General Assembly.
This resolution is made by a majority of at least four fifths of votes. The rule, that 4/5 of the votes is necessary, is
not applied, if the resolution on increase of company capital states, that the new shares are about to be obtained in
their entirety by a financial institution (a subissuing party), with the obligation of offering them later to the
shareholders in order to let them execute the right of subscription on the conditions specified in the resolution, or if
the resolution states that the new shares are to be obtained by the subissuing party, if the shareholders holding the
right of subscription, do not obtain a part of all of shares offered them. The stripping of the shareholders of the
right of subscription can take place in a case, when it has been announced in the order of meeting of the General
Assembly.
Right of participation in the assets of the Partnership after satisfaction or security of the creditors is obtained in the
case of its liquidation. According to art. 474 § 2 CCC, the assets remaining after the satisfaction or security of the
creditors is obtained, is divided by the shareholders, proportionally to payments for the company capital, made by
each of them. The Status of the Issuing Party does not predict any priviledges in this field.
Right of disposal of owned shares. The status of the Issuing Party does not provide any limitations in this field.
Right of duty on the owned shares using a pledge or a usage. In the period, when shares of the public partnership,
which have a pledge or a usage created, are registered on securities accounts in a brokerage house or in a bank
managing securities accounts, the shareholder is entitled to the right of vote from these shares (art. 340 § 3 CCC).
Shares of the Partnership can be redeemed. The shares can be redeemed by lowering of the company capital, by
shares purchase (with permission of the shareholder) by the Partnership.
Right of changing registered shares to shares to bearer. The change of registered shares to shares to bearer can be
done by request of the shareholder (art.334 CCC related to § 3.2.5 of the Status of the Partnership). The change of
registered shares to shares to bearer causes loss of the priviledges.

In the field of actions necessary to change rights of shares owners, the Status of the Issuing Party does not provide rules,
which are more significant than it is required by the law.
Regulations of the Commercial Companies Code provide a possibility of issuing shares with special priviledges by the
partnership, and also of individually assigning personal priviledges to a designated shareholder, which cease to exist no
earlier than as of the date, when the entitled person ceases to be a shareholder of the Partnership.
Priviledged shares, with the exception of non-voting shares, should be registered, and the aforementioned priviledges can
be related to, e.g. voting rights, rights to dividend or to division of assets in the case of partnership liquidation. Priviledges
related to the voting rights cannot be applied to a public partnership, and additionally, one share cannot have more than 2
votes assigned, and this priviledge is revoked if such share is changed to a share to bearer or if it is sold against agreed
conditions. Shares priviledged to the dividend can grant the entitled person a dividend, which exceeds the dividend
assigned for payment to non-priviledged shareholders by no more than 50% (it does not apply to non-voting shares and
pre-payments for dividend) and they do not use priority of satisfaction before other shares (does not apply to non-voting
shares). Shares priviledgeg to the dividend can have the voting right excluded (non-voting rights), additionally, the
priviledged shareholder, who was not partially or wholly paid the dividend in the given tax year, can be granted the right of
profit compensation in the next years, but not later then within three next tax years. Granting of particular priviledges can
be made dependent on submitting additional statements for the partnership, deadline or fulfillment of condition. The
shareholder can execute special rights granted him/her, related to the priviledged share, after the end of the tax year,

granted only to an individually designated shareholder and they can be related to e.g., right of election or dismissing of the
Board members or of the Supervisory Board members or right of obtaining designated statements from the partnership.
Granting of personal priviledges can be made dependent on submitting additional statements for the partnership, deadline
or fulfillment of condition. Limitations regarding the scope and execution of rights resulting from the priviledged shares
should be applied to the rights granted to the shareholder.
The described changes of rights of shareholders, i.e. issuing shares with special rights and granting personal rights to an
individually designated shareholder, must be included in the Status of the Partnership, thus an appropriate change in the
Status is necessary. According to art. 430 § 1 of the Commercial Companies Code, change of the Status requires a resolution
of the general assembly and an entry in the register to be made. The resolution which changes the Status should include an
indication of priviledged shares or a respective designation of the entity, which is granted with personal rights, type of
share priviledges and potential conditions, which have to be met in order of share priviledges or personal rights to be
granted. The resolution related to the change of Status is made with a majority of three fourths of votes, with the

rights granted personally to particular shareholders, according to art. 354 of the Commercial Companies Code, requires
permission of all shareholders it is related to (art. 415 of the Commercial Companies Code). The Status of the Issuing Party
does not create more severe condtions of making resolutions related to changes of Status. If the change of the Status is not

of 3 months to register the change of Status to the Register Court (art. 430 § 2 of the Commercial Companies Code).

especially shareholders owning large packages of shares of the Issuing Party, i.e. Andrzej Bartnicki, Jan Mroczka and MB
Progress Capital Limited, who are interested in the increase of value of shares owned by them.
An entity engaged in the Public Offer, is also the Offering Party – Brokerage House IDMSA, because its salary depends on

Aktywów Niepublicznych fund located in Warsaw, represented by IDEA TFI Spółka Akcyjna – a dependent entity of the

the Offering Party and the Financial Advisor, which could appear in relation to the preparation and execution of the Series C
Shares Public Offer.

Assets-related rights, related to the shares of the Partnership
1.
Right to dividend – participation in the profit of the Partnership listed in the financial report, studied by an expert
auditor, designed by the General Assembly to be paid to the shareholders (art. 347 CCC). The profit is divided
proportionally to the number of shares. The Status does not predict any priviledges related to this law, which
means, that each of the shares has assigned the same dividend. The shareholders, who were the holders of shares
on the date of resolution on profit division, are entitled to the dividend. An Ordinary General Assembly of a public
partnership defines the dividend day and the payment date. The dividend day may be defined on the day the
resolution is made or within next three months, starting from this day (art. 348 CCC). When deciding the date of the
dividend day, the General Assembly should take into account regulations of the National Deposit of Securities and
of the Stock Exchange. The Issuing Party is obliged to inform the National Deposit of Securities about the amount of
Page 232
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
dividend allocated to each share, together with the date of the dividend day and the payment date, sending
immediately, but no later than 10 days before the dividend day, a resolution of a proper organ of the Partnership,
competent in this issues. The payment date can be set no earlier than on the tenth day after the dividend day. The
National Deposit of Securities passes these information to all direct participants. Direct participants define the
number of securities granting them the right to dividend, present on the accounts managed by them and send to
the National Deposit of Securities the information about:

The amount of monetary assets, which should be transferred to the participant as a result of dividend
payment,

Total amount of input income tax on legal entities, which should be collected by the issuing party from
dividends paid through a participator,

The number of securities accounts managed for people, who are tax-payers of tax on legal entities.

On the payment day, the issuing party is obliged to leave assets assigned to the execution of the right to dividend at
the disposal of the National Deposit of Securities. As a result of the resolution of assigning profit for division, the
shareholders are granted a claim for dividend payment. This claim becomes due on the day indicated in the
resolution of the General Assembly is a subject to limitation according to general rules. Legal regulations do not
define the time, when the right to dividend ceases to exist. In the case of tax-payers which do not have an office or
the board located on the territory of the Republic of Poland, which are a subject to the income from dividend, the
rates resulting from agreements signed by the Republic of Poland in order to prevent a double taxation, or which
provide exemption from the tax, according to these agreements are applied, only after a so called residence
certification is presented, issued by the proper tax administration. The residence certificate has to prove if the given
entitiy is included in the scope of agreement on avoiding double tax, i.e. it is entitled to use lower, preferential tax
rates or to be exempted from tax. In the case, when doubts exist, the tax-payer will deduct the tax in amount
predicted by the act. If a non-resident proves, that the decisions of the international agreement predicting a
reduction of the national tax rate (including a total exemption) apply to him/her, he/she will be entitled to claim an
overpayment statement and to return of tax, which was not due, directly from the tax office. The amount assigned
for division between shareholders cannot exceed the profit for the last tax year, increased by undivided profits from
the previous years and by amounts transferred from reserve capitals created from the profits, which can be
assigned to the dividend payment. Uncovered losses, own shares and costs, which according to the Status or to the
act should be spent from the profit for the last tax year on reserve capitals (art. 348 § 1 CCC), should be deducted
from this amount. The law, which is effective in Poland, does not introduce other regulations regarding the dividend
rate or the methods of its calculations, frequency and cumulative or a non-cumulative nature of payments. No right
other than the right of participation in the profits of the Issuing Party is related to the shares of Issuing Party, in
particular, the Status of the Issuing Party does not predict an award of participation in the profits of the Partnership
by issuing nominal foundation certificates, in order to pay for services made during the formation of the
Partnership, or by issuing use certificates in exchange for redeemed shares.
Right of subscription - Priviledged rights of subscription for new shares related to the number of owned shares.
According to the conditions specified in art. 433 CCC, the shareholders can be stripped of the right of subscription,
partially or totally, in the interest of the Partnership, through the powers of a resolution of the General Assembly.
This resolution is made by a majority of at least four fifths of votes. The rule, that 4/5 of the votes is necessary, is
not applied, if the resolution on increase of company capital states, that the new shares are about to be obtained in
their entirety by a financial institution (a subissuing party), with the obligation of offering them later to the
shareholders in order to let them execute the right of subscription on the conditions specified in the resolution, or if
the resolution states that the new shares are to be obtained by the subissuing party, if the shareholders holding the
right of subscription, do not obtain a part of all of shares offered them. The stripping of the shareholders of the
right of subscription can take place in a case, when it has been announced in the order of meeting of the General
Assembly.
Right of participation in the assets of the Partnership after satisfaction or security of the creditors is obtained in the
case of its liquidation. According to art. 474 § 2 CCC, the assets remaining after the satisfaction or security of the
creditors is obtained, is divided by the shareholders, proportionally to payments for the company capital, made by
each of them. The Status of the Issuing Party does not predict any priviledges in this field.
Right of disposal of owned shares. The status of the Issuing Party does not provide any limitations in this field.
Right of duty on the owned shares using a pledge or a usage. In the period, when shares of the public partnership,
which have a pledge or a usage created, are registered on securities accounts in a brokerage house or in a bank
managing securities accounts, the shareholder is entitled to the right of vote from these shares (art. 340 § 3 CCC).
Shares of the Partnership can be redeemed. The shares can be redeemed by lowering the company capital, by
shares purchase (with permission of the shareholder) by the Partnership.
Right of changing registered shares to shares to bearer. The change of registered shares to shares to bearer can be
done by request of the shareholder (art.334 CCC related to § 3.2.5 of the Status of the Partnership). The change of
registered shares to shares to bearer causes loss of the priviledges.

Appendix number 1 to the Resolution 15/11/2009
Of the Ordinary General Assebmly
dated 9.11.2009
Opinion of the Board of Rank Progress Spółka Akcyjna
On the total exclusion of right of subscription
of current shareholders in relation to Series C Shares
and on the definition of issue price of new issue shares
The Board of the Partnership, acting through the powers of art. 433 § 2 of the Commercial Company Code presents below
its opinion on the issue of total exclusion of right of subscription of the Series C shares of the Partnership ("Shares") and on
the issue of defining the issue price of these shares.
By issuing new Series C shares, the Partnership intends to obtain assets necessary for the implementation of planned
investments and for the develpoment of the Partnership within the scope of its business activity. Because of the limited
options of funding by the current shareholders, the decision on exclusion of the right of subscription for Series C Shares for
Page 237
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
these investors is justified and it serves the interests of the Partnership. The exclusion of right of subscription will enable to
obtain new investors and an accumulation of capital in the Partnership as well as strengthening its position against the
competition. Acquisition of new investors by the Partnership will allow to increase its reliability and to increase the
dynamics of the development.
The exclusion of right of subscription to Series C Shares does not exclude these shares to be obtained by current
shareholders, thus one has to assume that the exclusion of the right of subscription does not work against the interests of
current shareholders as it serves the interest of the Partnership.
Becaus of the above, the Board of the Partnership recommends their shareholders voting for the total exclusion of right of
subscription to Series C Shares, to which the current shareholders of the Partnership are entitled.
The issue price of Series C shares will be determined on the basis of analysis of demand for new shares, performed by the
Board of the Partnership and by a financial advisor. Once the offer of the partneship is presented to the potential investors,
they will be able to submit declarations of interest in purchasing Series C shares, and on the basis of a large number of
declarations, the Board of the Partnership will obtain information about the market evaluation of Series C shares, and on
this basis it will define the market price.

The income-obtaining partnership directly owns at least 10% of all Shares in the capital of the partnership which pays
the dividend or other income by virtue of participation in profits of legal entities,

The income-obtaining partnership owns the number of Shares defined in tiret (1) above for a permanent period of two
years. It has to be noted, that the exemption is also applied, when the required period of two years is over after the
date the income is obtained. However, if the condition presented above is not met, the partnership using the
th
exemption will be obliged to pay the tax before the 20 day of the month following the month, in which it has lost the
right to exemption, with the delay interest, and

The location of office of the income-obtaining partnership will be documented for the needs of taxation with a
residency certificate issued by a proper organ of the foreign tax administration (art. 26 p. 1c sp. 1 of the Act on ITOP).
Under the assumption that all conditions presented above are met, the exemption from tax is also applied in a situation,
when the dividend is received by a foreign company (as understood by art. 4a p.11 of the Act on ITOP) of a partnership
being a subject to taxation from the entirety of its income (regardless of the place of their generation) in the Republic of
Poland or in an EEA member state other than the Republic of Poland. However, the existence of the foreign company
should be documented by the company using the exemption with a certificate issued by a proper tax administration organ
of its country of origin, or by a proper tax organ of the country,
Where the company is located (art. 26 p. 1c sp 2 of the Act on ITOP). Additionally, it has to be pointed out, that the
aforementioned exemption can also be applied to the entirety of income paid to the receiving party (company), subjected
in the Switzerland to the income tax from the entirety of its income, regardless of the place of its generation, with a
specified, direct percentage in the capital of the dividend-paying company has been set at the level not lower than 25%.
Also in this case it is necessary to document the tax residency with a proper certificate issued by a proper organ of the
foreign tax administration (art. 26 p. 4c sp 2 and p. 6 of the Act on ITOP).
4.11.2. Income tax from income obtained from sales of shares
Income from Shares circulation obtained by domestic people
Art. 30b of the Act on ITOP predicts an option of application of the flat tax rate of 19% to the income from a paid dispoal of
securities. The regulations of art. 30b of the Act on ITOP does not apply, however, if the diposal of Shares by a person is a
part of the personal business activity.
Page 250
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
In relation to people, income from the paid disposal of Shares is defined as the difference betweeen the amount of income
from this operation (i.e. a sum of value of Shares obtained by the disposal, minus the costs of paid disposal) and the costs of
income generation, understood as expenses on Shares purchase, obtained in the tax year (it has to be noted, that the
income from the paid disposal of shares is understood as input income, even if it has not been actually obtained, and it
influences the moment of income generation). It has to be noted, however, that if the value expresseed in the price
specified in the contract of paid disposal will significantly deviate from the market value of Shares, without a justified
reason, it may be questioned by the tax organ. According to art. 30b p. 7 of the Act on ITOP, if it is impossible to identify the
disposed securities, then it has to be assumed that these are respective securities, starting from those obtained as the
earliest, with this rule applied separately for each securities account, on which the Shares are located.
After the end of the tax year, the tax-payers are obliged to list income obtained in the given year by virtue of paid disposal
th
of Shares in a separate tax return and to calculate the input income tax. This return tax has to be submitted until April 30
of the next year after the tax year (this is also the deadline for payment of the calculated tax).
It is a rule, that the information given to the tax-payers by the payer through the powers of art.39 p.3 of the Act on ITOP
should form the base of preparation of a yearly report. The payer is not obliged to collect tax and to transfer pre-payments
of tax by virtue of paid Shares disposal during the tax year..
It also has to be noted, that according to art. 9 p. 6 of the Act on ITOP, income obtained by virtue of paid disposal of
securities can be lowered by the value of loss from this source (this source includes in particular, income from paid disposal
of Shares and other securities) in the five tax years following one another, with the resitriction that the lowering income
cannot exceed 50% of this loss in any of these years.
Income from Shares circulation obtained by domestic legal entities
Income from paid Shares disposal obtained by legal entities and capital partnership in organisation, having their office or
board on the territory of the Republic of Poland, and by other organisational unit without a legal entity (with the exception
of civil law, general, partner, limited and limited-stock partnerships) are subjected to general taxation rules resulting from
the Act on ITOP, i.e. they are taxed according to the basic tax rate of 19%, including other income obtained during the tax
year, on the basisi of art. 19 p. 1 of the Act on ITOP.
In relation to legal entities, the income from paid disposal or Shares is defined as the value of Shares resulting from the
disposal price. It has to be noted, however, that if the value expressed in the price defined in the paid disposal contract will
significantly deviate from the market value of Shares, without a justified reason, it may be questioned by the tax organ. In
regard to the paid disposal of Shares, expenses on their purchase are the cost of income generation, lowering the tax basis.
Income from Shares circulation obtained by foreign legal entities
Foreign owners of Shares (i.e. such entities, which do not have an office or the board on the territory of the Republic of
Poland and people with places of residence outside Poland) are subjected to taxation in Poland by virute of paid Shares
disposal only related to the income generated on the territory of the Republic of Poland. Income from Shares sales on GPW
is treated as obtained on the territory of the Republic of Poland.
Income of foreign people is taxes according to the same rules as that of domestic ones. It has to be noted, howeverm that
forign parnterships without a legal entity are taxed according to the regulations for legal entities, if according to the tax law
of their country of location of the office or board, they are treated as legal entities and are subjected in this country to the
tax from the entirety of its income, regardless of the place of their generation (art. 1 p. 3 of the Act of ITOP).
However, in addition to Polish internal regulations, the rules of taxation of foreign people result from proper agreements
on avoiding double taxation, where the Republic of Poland is a party, and from proper foreign regulations. Usually, the
agreements on avoiding double taxation state, that profits from the sales of securities can be taxed only in that country,
where the place of residence, the office or the board of the seller is located. It is not related to the cases, when a foreign
person has the company in Poland, as understood by the proper agreement on avoiding double taxation, and the income
from paid disposal of Shares could be assigned to this company. Then, these income will be taxed in Poland, just as the
income of domestic people. It also has to be noted, that the application of tax rate resulting from the proper agreement on
avoiding double taxation or not paying the tax according to such agreement has been made clearly dependent on
documenting the tax residence of the tax-payer, by presenting the payer a proper residence certificate issued by a proper
organ of a foreign tax administration (art. 30b p. 3 of the Act on ITOP).
4.11.3. Tax from civil-legal actions
According to art. 9 p. 9 of the act on tax from civil-legal actions, sales of material rights which are financial instruments as
understood according to the regulation of Act on circulation of financial instruments to, or through financial companies, as
well as sales of these rights made within the scope of the said circulation, is exempted from the tax from civil-legal actions.
Page 251
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
If the aforementioned situation does not take place, the shares sale shall be subjected to taxation with a legal-civil actions
tax of 1%. The tax from legal-civil actions is to be paid within 14 days from the date of tax obligation and to provide a
declaration on tax from legal-civil actions. According to art. 4 of the Act on tax from legal-civil actions, in the case of sale,
the buyer is subjected to the tax obligation.
4.11.4. Tax from legacies and donations
Only people are subject to the tax from legacies and donations in Poland. As a rule, obtaining Shares as a result of a legacy
or a donation is a subject to this tax, with the tax rate dependent on the degree of relationship, or on any other relation
between the benefactor/bequeather and the beneficient/heir. Tax rates are progressive and they are equal to 3-20% of the
tax basis, depending on the tax group the obtaining person has been classified to. Each of the groups also has a tax-free
amount. This tax is paid within 14 days from the decision of the head of the tax office, defining the level of tax obligation.
Acquisition of Shares ownership by the closest relatives (spouses, descendants, ascendants, stepchildren, brothers and
sisters, stepfather and stepmother) is exempted from tax, under the condition of making a proper submission to the proper
head of the tax office. This exemption is applied, if at the moment of acquisition, the obtaining party was a Polish citizen or
a citizen of one of the Member States or one of the Member states of the European Free Trade Agreement (EFTA) – a party
of the agreement on EEA, or had the place of residence on the territory of Poland or of such a member state.
4.11.5. Responsibility of the payer
According to art. 30 of the Tax Ordination, the payer which did not fulfill its obligations of calculating, collecting and
payment of the tax to the proper tax office, holds the responsibility for the uncollected tax, or for the collected yet unpaid
tax with all its assets. However, this regulation does not applt, if separate regulations state otherwise, or if the tax was not
collected because of the tax-payer. In this case, the tax office gives out a decision on the responsibility of the tax-payer.

5.1.3.
Book building
Before the start of the Public Offer, marketing actions will take place, which are known as the „book-building” process,
namely, building the demand book.
The „book-building” process is related to both tranches, in which the Shares are offered.
As a result of this actions, a „demand book” for Offered Shares will be created. The results of demand „book building” in
both tranches will be used during the determination of Issue price of the Offered Shares.
In case of significant differences in the results of the „book-building” process in both tranches, the Board of the Issuing
Party will try to set the price at the level guaranteeing obtaining all shares offered in both tranches. The issue price will be
identical in both tranches.
People who take place in the „book-building” process, will be able to use preferences in allocation of the Offered Shares,
mentione in this Prospctus (Part IV, p. 5.1.4.).
The “book-building” process is collecting Purchase Declarations from Investors interested in purchasing, on the basis of this
Prospectus, a specific number of Offered Shares at the indicated price. Purchase Declarations with price listed as
approximated to 0,01 PLN, will be accepted. Purchase Declaration is not binding for an Investor, excluding statements of p.
5.1.4, related to preferences within the Open Tranche and within Institutional Investors Tranche.
Purchase declarations which do not contain:
 number of shares expressed as multiples of 10 shares,
 number of shares being at least 100,
 price within listed price range,
 price approximated to 0,01 PLN,
 other data listed in the Purchase Declaration form,
will be treated as invalid.
The price range, in which Purchase Declaration during the „book-building” phase will be accepted is from 10,77 to 12,00
PLN per share. The maximum Issue price of Offered Shares is 12,00 PLN and it cannot be lower than the nominal price of a
share.
The Purchase Declarations will be collected through the Offering Party or through the members of distribution consortium,

Offered Shares and a price, at which he/she would be ready to purchase the specified number of Offered Shares. A proper
form will be made available by the Offering Party or by the members of the distribution consortium (if it is created) – a
template of Purchase Declaration form was presented in the chapter „Forms and appendices” of this Prospectus. A
submitted declaration can be withdrawn before the subscriptions start, by submitting a written statement in a CSP
accepting the Purchase Declarations. After withdrawing a submitte Purchase Declaration it is possible to submit a second
Purchase Declaration during the „book-building” process. Submission of a new Purchase Declaration without having the
previous Declaration withdrawn causes all Declarations to become invalid.

all managed accounts. Investment Funds Groups submit their Purchase Declarations separately, on the behalf of particular
funds managed by the Investment Funds Group.
5.1.4.

Page 253
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus

shares greater than the number of Offered Shares in a given Tranche will be taken as a subscription for the maximum

of the Offering Party and, additionally, of other members of the distribution consortium, if such a consortium will be

to the general public by making available an annex to the Prospectus, approved by the KNF. This Annex will be released to
the general public in the same way the Prospectus was published.
Repeated submission of a subscription will be treated as making a subscription for a number of Offered Shares resulting
from the particular subscriptions.
Subcriptions for Offered Shares made by an entity managing a securities portfolio of a third party will be treated as a
subscriptions of the parties, for which the portfolios are managed.
If the Investor plans to write Offered Shares allocated to him to a specific securities account, the Investor must submit a
deposition disposal for Offered Shares.
All consequences resulting from an improper or incomplete filling of the subscription for Offered shares or of the deposition
disposal for Offered Shares (including the lack of shares allocation) will be faced by the Investor.
It is possible to make subscriptions for Offered Shares using Internet, phone, fax and other technical means, if such a
possibility is accepted by the Status of the brokerage house accepting the subscriptions. In that case, the Investor should
have a proper contract signed with the brokerage house, where he/she will submit the subscription for Offered Shares.
Such a contract should contain, in particular, an authorisation of the brokerage house or its employees, for submission of
the subscription for shares in the name of the Investor.
Subscriptions will be accepted on 4 instances of the form. One instance of subscription for is for the Investor, one for the
Issuing Party and the remaining two – for the point which accepts the submission. The template of the subscription form
has been presented in the chapter „Forms and appendices” of this Prospectus.
Subscriptions will be accepted in two Tranches: Institutional Investors Tranche and the Open Tranche.
Subscriptions in the Institutional Investors Tranche
Shares can be purchased in the Institutional Investors Tranche by:
a. Brokerage house,
b. bank,
c. insurance company,
d. investment fund,
e. pension fund,
f. entity, managing a package of securities of a third party (asset management),
g. entity (a person, legal entity or organisational unit without a legal enity), in the name of which the subscription is
made by the entity managing a package of securities of a third party (asset management customer),
h. investment subissuing party – if a investment subissue contract is signed,
i.
other entity, purchasing shares for the amount not less than 100 000 PLN,
j.
entity, which submitted a Purchase Declaration of Offered Shares for the amount not less than 500 000 PLN.
In the case of Investors, which made a submission on the basis of nominal invitation for submission for a specified number
of offered shares, preferences are planned.
Invitations sent to entities managing securities portfolios of third parties will be treated as invitations sent to those third
parties, whose portofolios are managed.
The invitations will be sent by fax, e-mail, or any other methods agreed with the particular Investor. The invitation receipt
will be confirmed in person, by fax, phone or using other technical means, including e-mail. Invitations to submissions of
subscriptions can be directed from the start of subscription of shares until the end of subscription period. In order to use
the aforementioned preferences, the invited Investor should reply to the invitation by 14.00 the next day after the receipt
of the invitation, as well as before the end of the subscription period.
Page 254
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
The basis for obtaining an invitation and for definition of number of Offered Shares listed in the invitation will be the
participation in the „book-building” process and submission of Purchase Declaration of Offered Shares at a price, which will
be higher then, or equal to the final price of Offered Shares. The Board holds the right to send invitations also to other
Investors, also those not participation in the „book-building”, to send invitations related to the number of Offered Shares
other (i.e. higher or lower) than the one declared during „book-building”, as well as not to send invitations, despite the
participation in „book-building”. Sending an invitation for a higher number of Offered Shares than the number declared
during „book-building” does not mean for the Investor that it is obligatory to subscribe for a number of Shares higher than
the number indicated during „book-building”, as it only grants him/her the right to submit such an increased subscription.
Preferences related to the submission of a subscription on the basis of registered invitation mean, that in a case of making a
subscription for the number of shares listed in the registered invitation, but equal to, or greater than the number listed
during the „book-building” process, the subscription is not reduced.
In case of submitting a subscription for a number of shares greater than the number indicated in the registered invitation,
the part of the subscription related to the number of Offered Shares, exceeding the number specified in the registred
invitation, will be proportionally reduced, if Offered Shares remain in Institutional Investors Tranche, which are
unsubscribed on the basis on invitation. The remaining part of the subscription will not be reduced.
Sending invitations by the Issuing Party does not limit the rights of an Investor, including that Investor, which was sent an
invitation, and the Investor, which did not participate in the „book-building”, relatede to making subscriptions for Offered
Shares in the Open Tranche or in the Institutional Investors Tranche.
Subscription in the Open Tranche
All Investors are entitled to purchasing Offered Shares in the Open Tranche.
Preferences in allocation of the Offered Shares will be granted to those Investors, who have made Purchase Declarations for
Offered Shares in the „book-building” process, followed by making a subscription for the number of Offered Shares at least
equal to the declared number, with the final price of the Offered Shares lower than, or equal to the declared price.
These preference mean, that in a case of oversubscription of shares, the following procedure will be applied for the needs
of calculating the number of Offered Shares, which will be allocated to particular Investors:
1. The number of Offered Shares, for which a subscrption was made, which in turn is a subject for preferences, will be
multiplied by two. The number of shares listed in subscriptions which are not subjected to preferences, is multiplied by
one. In this way, „products” will be calculated for particular subscriptions.
2. Calculated „products” will be summed up. Thus, a „theoretical sum” is obtained.
3. For each subscription, its „proportional participation” in the „theoretical sum” will be calculated – i.e. participation of
the „product” in the total sum of those products.
4. The number of shares, which will be allocated to the Investor, is calculated by multiplying the „proportional
participation” by the total number of Offered Shares in the given tranche, with the restriction, that the investor cannot
have more Offered Shares allocated, that the number listed in the subscription. It means, that depending on the
number of subscriptions made, the subscription of an Investor benefitting from preferences will not be reduced or that
it will be reduced to the smaller extent than the subscription of an Investor not included in the preferences
These preferences are related only to the number of Offered Shares, which has been included in the Purchase Declaration.
A repeated submission of a subscription will be treated as submitting a subscription for the total number of Offered Shares
included in particular subscriptions. However, in order to participate in preferences resulting from the participation in the
„book-building” process, the Investor should submit and pay for the subscription of the number of Offered Shares at least
equal to the number specified in the Purchase Declaration. If the subscription is made for a number of Offered Shares
greater than indicated in the Purchase Declaration, then preferences in the allocation will be applied only to the number of
Offered Shares specified in the Declaration, while the remaining number of Shares will be allocated without preferences.
Only a single susbcription can correspond to a single Purchase Declaration. An Investor who wants to use preferences in
allocation of the Offered Shares, should present his/her owned original of the previously submitted Purchase Declaration at
the moment of making subscription and indicate the number of the Purchase Declaration on the subscription form, which
he/she intends to use in the submitted subscription. The confirmation of use of the particular Purchase Declaration takes
place by submitting a hand signature on the presented Purchase Declaration by an employee of the brokerage house and
by the Investor who submits the subscription.
If the subscription is made using technical means, the confirmation of declaration use takes place by making a proper
statement by the Investor. Especially in the case, when an Investor makes a subscription for Offered Shares via Internet,
he/she is obliged to indicated the number of Purchased Declaration on the subscription form, which he/she intends to use
in relation to the subscription being placed.
Page 255
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
If other technical means are used, it is advised to contact a brokerage house where the subscription will be made in order
to obtain information related to the technical form of submitting statement of Purchase Declaration use.

Rules of distribution and allocation
Intentions of major shareholders and members of management, supervisory and administrative
organs of the Issuing Party, related to participation in the subscription
To the best of the knowledge of the Issuing Party, Members of the Board, of the Superisory Board and major shareholders
do not plan to participate in the Public Offer.
5.2.2.
Informations revealed before the allocation
Subscriptions for Shares will be submitted either within the Institutional Investors Tranche or within the Open Tranche. The
list of entities entitled to shares purchase within the Institutional Investors Tranche can be found in p. 5.1.4. Part IV of the
Prospectus. All Investors are entitled to purchases of Offered Shares within the Open Tranche.
On the basis of this Prospectus, a total number of 4 643 130 Shares i offered, including:
 Within the Institutional Investors Tranche – 3 714 504 Series C Shares to be obtained, with a nominal value of
0,10 PLN each,
Within the Open Trench –928 626 Series C Shares to be obtained, with a nominal value of 0,10 PLN each.
5.2.2.1. Transfers between Tranches
The Issuing Party holds the right to perform transfers between tranches after the end of the public subscription. Only those
Offered Shares can be transferred, which have not been subscribed by Investors within the given tranche, under the
condition, that in the other tranche the demand submitted by Investors for Offered shares exceeded their supply. Such
transfer will not require an information about the transfer through the powers of art. 51 of the Act on Offer.
5.2.2.2. Allocation rules – description of subscription reductions and return of overpaid amounts
The allocation of Offered Shares will be performed by the Board of the Issuing Party within 6 working days from the end of
the public subscription. A minimum number of allocated shares is one.
The method of treating entities during the allocation of subscriptions does not depend on the fact, by which entity or
through each entitry they are made. There are also no previously defined methods of preferential treatment of particular
investor types or particular bound groups during the allocation. The only differences in treatment during allocation are a
consequence of division into tranches and the preferences in the Institutional Investors Tranches, resulting from obtaining a
registered invitations, and preferences in the Open Tranche resulting from the participation in the „book-building”.
No overallocation and no option of an additional allocation of the „green shoe” type exists.
Institutional Investors Tranche
Subscriptions for Offered Shares made in a quantity resulting from a sent invitation, will not be reduced.
Sending an invitation for a number of Offered Shares higher than the number declared in the „book-building” is not binding
the Investor with a duty of making a subscription for a higher number of Shares than listed in the „book-building” process,
Page 258
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
as it only entitles the Investor to use such an option. In relation to this, in a case when a subscription for a smaller number
of shares than listed in the invitation is submitted, but with the number higher than or equal to that specified during the
„book-building” process, the subscription is not reduced, either.
In a case:

Of submission of a subscription by the Investor, who was not sent an invitation,

Of making a subscription by the Investor, who did not particpate in the „book-building” process,

Of submission of a subscription by the Investor invited after the time, in which the Investor should reply to the
invitation in order to use preferences, with the time specified in the p. 5.1.4 above, or

Of submission of a subscription by the Investor invited to a number of Offered Shares lower than that specified in the
invitation, with the exception of a case, when a subscription was made for a number of shares lower than that
specified in the invitation, but greater than or equal to the number indicated during the „book-building” process,
The subscriptions will be subjected to a proportional reduction, if there are still Offered Shars in the Institutional Investors
Tranche, not obtained under the preferential conditions. Subscriptions made by an Investor invited in the part related to
the number of Offered Shares exceeding the number specified in the invitation will be subjected to a similar reduction.
Open Tranche
The number of allocated Offered Shares will be rounded down to an integer, and remaining, single Offered Shares will be
allocated to the Investors which have made subscriptions for the biggest numbers of Offered Shares, in turn. It has to be
pointed out, that in particular circumstances (a large reduction of subscriptions and small number of subscription for
shares, causing the number of shares resulting from the allocation to be lower than 1), it may result in no allocation of
Offered Shares at all.
If the total number of Offered Shares, for which the subscriptions from the Investors are made, will be greater than the
number of Offered Shares, then the subscriptions of the Investors will be subjected to a reduction. This reduction will be
proportional for all Investors, with the restrictions for participants of the „book-building” process, given below.
Preferences in allocation of Offered Shares will be granted to those Investors, who have submitted Purchase Declaration for
the Offered Shares during the „book-building” preocess, followed by a subscription for the number of Offered Shares at
least equal to the declared, with the final price of the Offered Shares lower than or equal to the declared one.
These preferences mean, that in a case of oversubscription for shares the following procedure will be applied to the needs
of calculation of the number of Offered Shares, which will be allocated to particular Investors:
1. The number of Offered Shares, for which a subscrption was made, which in turn is a subject for preferences, will be
multiplied by two. The number of shares listed in subscriptions which are not subjected to preferences, is multiplied by
one. In this way, „products” will be calculated for particular subscriptions;
2. Calculated „products” will be summed up. Thus, a „theoretical sum” is obtained;
3. For each subscription, its „proportional participation” in the „theoretical sum” will be calculated – i.e. participation of
the „product” in the total sum of those products;
4. The number of shares, which will be allocated to the Investor, is calculated by multiplying the „proportional
participation” by the total number of Offered Shares in the given tranche, with the restriction, that the investor cannot
have more Offered Shares allocated, that the number listed in the subscription. It means, that depending on the
number of subscriptions made, the subscription of an Investor benefitting from preferences will not be reduced or that
it will be reduced to the smaller extent than the subscription of an Investor not included in the preferences.
These preferences are related only to the number of Offered Shares, which has been included in the Purchase Declaration.
If in the case of allocation of Offered Shares, an Investor will not be allocated a part, or all of the Offered Shares, for which
he/she has made a subscriptions, as a result of subscription reduction or as a result of an invalid subscription made by the
Investor, as well as in a case of any other reason making it necessary to return a part or the entire amount paid by the
Investor, to the Investor, the amount paid by the Investor will be returned in a way specified by the Investor in the
subscription form, within 14 days from the allocation date. These amounts will be returned without interest rates or
reparations.
5.2.3.
Conditions of offer’s end, the earliest possible end date
The public offer of Offered Shares will be closed by the Issuing Party on the date of allocation of Offered Shares. The end of
the offer will take place within 6 working days from the end of subscription.
5.2.4.
Procedure of notifying investors about the number of allocated shares with the indication, if
circulation is allowed before this notification is sent
If at least the minimum number of shares designed to be obtained will be subscribed for and paid, the Board will execute,
within 6 working days from the date of the end of subscription, shares allocation to the subscribers, according to the
published rules of shares allocation.

the Board and of the Supervisory Board to purchase or to obtain shares of the Issuing Party in the future, under preference
conditions.
5.4.
Positioning and guarantees (subissue)
The Issuing Party did not sign and does not plan to sign a contract on a service or investment subissue. It means that no
entities exist, which would guarantee an issue on the basis of a binding agreement. Because of the above, no commission
on guaranteeing is planned.
Information of the entities, which obliged to position the offer without a binding agreement:
 Dom Maklerski IDM S.A. located in Kraków, being an Offering Party in the Public Offer will perform positioning actions
in the form of execution of the book-building process and meetings with Investors interested in obtaining Offered
Shares. DM IDM S.A. does not collect a separate salary for the aforementioned actions. The salary of the Offering Party
is calculated from the entirety of obtained shares and no commission on shares obtained as a result of the positioning
is distinguished.
 The Issuing Party: the Board of Rank Progress S.A. will participate in meetings with Investors interested in obtaining the
Offered Shares
There are no other entities than those mentioned above, which would decide to position the offer without a binding
agreement.
If a contract on a service or investment subissue is signed, a proper information is revealed to the general public, by making
an Annex to this Prospectus, approved by the KNF, available. This Annex will be revealed to the general public in the same
way as the Prospectus.
Page 260
Rank Progress S.A. – Issue Prospectus
Dom Maklerski IDM S.A. located in Kraków, Mały Rynek 7, is the Coordinator of the entire Offer. No coordinators working
on the parts of the Offer and entities positioning this Offer in other countries are planned.
Also, no payment agents are planned. After the Issue Prospectus is approved, it is predicted that services of the National
Deposit of Securities S.A. will be used, which is the main entity offering deposit services on the Polish capital market.
6. Approval of securities to circulation and statements related to circulation
6.1.
Approval of securities for circulation
It is the intention of the Issuing Party, that the Investors can circulate obtained Offered Shares as soon, as possible. To this
end, it is planned to introduce PDA Series C and Series B and C Shares to circulation on a regulated market, immediately
after fulfilling the conditions provided by law.
The Issuing Party will take all care necessary, so that immediately after the allocation of the Offered Shares, PDA Series C is
booked on accounts in the KDPW, in the number corresponding to the number of allocated Offered Shares.
The quotation date for Series C Shares on GPW depends mainly on the date of registration of Series C Shares by the court.
Thus, the Issuing Party has limited influence in the quotation date of Series C Shares on the GPW. Because of the above, the
Issuing Party plans to submit an application to the GPW for approval of PDA series C and Series B and C shares and an
application for approval of PDA Series C for circulation on the regulated marked. Once the registration court registers the
issue of Series C Shares, the Issuing Party will immediately submit an application to the KDPW, for exchange of PDA Series C
for Series C shares, and to GPW – for introduction of Series B and C Shares to the stock exchange circulation. It is the
nd
intention of the Issuing Party that PDA Series C and Series B Shares are quoted on the regulated market, i.e. GPW, in the 2
quarter of 2010. If it is impossible to fulfill all conditions necessary for approval for circulation on the primary market, the
Issuing Party will submit proper applications for introdcution of securities to the circulation on the parallel market.
If the registration court refuses to register the issue of Series C Shares – in this case an announcement about the legally
effective court decision will be published within 7 days from the date the decision of the register court, refusing the
registration of the company capital increase, becomes legally effective. The nature of PDA circulation forms a risk, that in
the situation, where the issue of Series C Shares does not take place, the owners of PDA Series C will obtain only the refund
equal to the product of the number of PDA booked on the account of the Investor, and the issue price of Series C Shares. If
the PDA are purchased on the stock exchange market, at a price higher than the issue price of Series C Shares, the investors
are about to record a loss on the investment. The paid amounts will be returned without interests and reparations within
14 days from the publication of the aforementioned announcement.
6.2.

for circulation, as shares offered or approved for circulation
Shares of the Issuing Party are not approved for circulation on any regulated (or equivalent) market.
6.3.
Information about securities being the subject of subscription or positioning at the same
time, or almost at the same time, as created securities, which are a subject of approval for

created securities, which are a subject of approval for circulation on a regulated market.
6.4.
Information about agents in circulation on the secondary market
No entities exist, which have a binding obligation of acting as agents in circulation on the secondary market, which

result of which will be similar to the transfer or duty of rights from the shares, unless such action is approved by the
Supervisory Board of the Partnership, or if the sale is performed within a non-public sale of shares of Rank Progress S.A.
