Stichting Administratiekantoor TKH Group (“Stichting Administratiekantoor”) holds ordinary shares in the company. In exchange for these shares Stichting Administratiekantoor issues depositary receipts for those shares. The voting rights to the shares are vested in Stichting Administratiekantoor. If requested to do so by the holders of depositary receipts, Stichting Administratiekantoor must give them authorisation to cast a vote, to the exclusion of Stichting Administratiekantoor, on the shares for which the holder has depositary receipts at a General Meeting of Shareholders specified in the proxy.

The authorisation is unrestricted and is therefore not subject to any exchangeability limit. Stichting Administratiekantoor is not required by law (Article 2:118a of the Netherlands Civil Code) to grant the proxy or may withdraw a proxy that has been given if a) a hostile public offer is announced or made or is expected to be made, b) one or more persons possess at least 25% of the depositary receipts and/or shares, or c) in the opinion of Stichting Administratiekantoor the voting right of a holder of a depositary receipt is fundamentally in conflict with the interest of the company. If Stichting Administratiekantoor avails of one of these possibilities, it must notify the holders of depositary receipts stating reasons.
