  3. The assigning of the external auditor’s fees for 2018.

Moreover, Bank Audi’s BOD proposed that the dividend per common share stands at LBP829.125 per share, payable (after deduction of taxes) on or about April 16, 2018 to holders of common shares, where the record date with Midclear S.a.l (the central depository) is April 13, 2018.  However both propositions are subject to the approval of the Annual Ordinary General Assembly.
