Nature of the Event: Class Action in Connection with the Conversion of Foreign Exchange

Reference numbers of previous reports on the subject: _____________________________

Bank Hapoalim B.M. ("the Bank") respectfully advises that on 11(th) June, 2019 the Bank was served with an application for the approval of a class action which was filed with the District Court of Tel Aviv - Jaffa against the Bank and five other banks.

As claimed in the application, when a transaction of conversion of foreign exchange is executed, the customer is charged in addition to a transaction fee (as to which disclosure is given in the Bank's list of charges and in the transaction print-out) an additional fee categorized as a "conversion differences fee", which is not specified in the list of charges of the respondents and is allegedly charged unlawfully and without proper disclosure thereof. The applicants allege that the collection of the conversion differences fee as aforesaid constitutes a breach of the provisions of the law, including the laws of contract, banking and unjust enrichment, as well as a breach of a bank's duty of trust. It was further alleged that by carrying out such a collection, the respondents engage amongst themselves a restrictive practice in breach of the Economic Competition Law, 5748- 1988.

The applicants estimate the total amount of the claim to be in the sum of approximately NIS 8 billion, out of which the sum of NIS 1.96 billion is attributable to the Bank.
