Shareholders of (depositary receipts of) ordinary shares should communicate their option to ABN AMRO Bank NV ('ABN AMRO') in the afore¬mentioned option period via their bank or broker.
In general, if your (depositary receipts of) ordinary shares are held by a bank or broker, the bank or broker in question will automatically give notice that the dividend should be paid as a stock dividend in the form of (depositary receipts of) ordinary shares, unless you have stipulated otherwise. The dividend rights relating to your option must be delivered directly to ABN AMRO at the latest by 15:00 hours CEST on 3 June 2014 in favour of account 28001/106.

The payment of the dividend and the transfer of (depositary receipts of) ordinary shares in relation to the conversion of dividend rights will take place from 6 June 2014 onwards. Delivery of depositary receipts of shares to your bank or broker will only occur on the basis of the total number of dividend rights delivered on 3 June 2014, whereby the remaining fraction will be settled in cash on the basis of the opening share price on 4 June 2014 and in accordance with the conditions of the bank that holds your shares.
