In spite of the provisions of the By-laws of PZU (in particular those concerning the limitations of the voting rights of the shareholders other than the State Treasury and the rules of appointing Supervisory Board of PZU), for the purposes of presentation of related party transactions, it is assumed that the State Treasury has retained control over PZU, as understood by IAS 27, and thus PZU remains an entity controlled by the State Treasury.
Non-life insurance contracts, life insurance contracts and investment contracts constituted the major part of transactions with subsidiaries, co-subsidiaries and associates of the State Treasury.
The PZU Group enjoys the exemption from the obligation to disclose related-party transactions due to the fact of being under control, joint control or significant influence of the same government, as referred to in Par. 25 of IAS 24. However, as such information is useful, the PZU Group decided to disclose the value of premium written as well as the volumes of investment contracts resulting from transactions with subsidiaries,co-subsidiaries and associates of the State Treasury (Section 53.2).
