The preemptive measures deployed in the early years of the crisis, the actions taken, as well as the on sight proactive approach regarding the Business Continuity Plan allowed the bank to preserve, in the best possible way, its assets and its shareholder's rights.
The sound levels of notoriety reached and finances realized allowed the bank to reach a desirable level of Net Shareholders Equity.
