Glitnir Capital Market Day 2007, 1 October 2007 in Oslo

Dear Stakeholder Last year, Glitnir organised for the first time the Glitnir Capital Market Day, with great success. Much has happened since then, and 2006 will long be remembered as the year when the spotlight of international media and analysts was on the Icelandic financial sector and economy. In spite of the tempestuous climate, Glitnir performed extremely well, and 2006 will go down as one of the best in the Bank's history, when both earnings and income doubled from the previous year. Glitnir began the year 2007 with the acquisition of the Finnish financial firm FIM, which has now been fully consolidated into the Bank's accounts. In May, a new CEO was announced, and new executives have also joined the team to take the Bank even further ahead, after the rapid growth of recent years. This year, Glitnir will host its Capital Market Day next 1 October in Oslo, Norway, where the bank has invested extensively in recent months and years to the tune of approximately 530 million euros. It gives us great pleasure to invite you to join us at the Glitnir Capital Market Day of 2007. We look forward to seeing you in Oslo Monday, October 1st. Best Regards Lárus Welding, Bjørn Richard Johansen CEO Managing Director, Corporate Communication Glitnir will post the agenda of the Glitnir Capital Market Day in mid-August.
