1 CBFR - Converse Bank Floating Rate  It is set twice a year by the Bank on the basis of the primary indicators, and in the event of unavailability of the latter - based on secondary indicators. In case of change, the nominal interest rate of the existing contracts changes no sooner than one month after the borrower is notified.                                                                          Key indicators: In case of AMD, the yield curve of 180-day government bonds of the Republic of Armenia, published by the Central Bank of Armenia at https://www.cba.am; In the case of USD or EUR, respectively, the "6-month ICE LIBOR US Dollar" and "6-month ICE LIBOR Euro" benchmarks, published by the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) at  https: // www. theice.com website:                                                                                                                                    Secondary indicators: In case of AMD, the refinancing rate set by the CBA; In the case of the US dollar, the Federal Reserve Bank interest rate on the Federal Funds or the upper limit of the range; In the case of the euro, the European Central Bank's marginal lending facility rate.                                                                                                                                                     Moreover, in case of inaccessibility of the main indicators and the use of secondary indicators , the nominal interest rates on CBFR financing established based on the secondary indicators shall be set so that the nominal interest rate remains unchanged under the change in the fixed component of the financing interest rate. The specified CBFR rates are published on the Bank's official website at https://conversebank.am/en/kbht/ and are available on the Bank's premises.                                         The calculated nominal interest rate is rounded up to one hundredth.                                                                                                                                        

The Bank may change the floating rate of this loan no more than twice a year.
