Papendrecht, 9 December 2016
Today the Articles of Association of Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (“Boskalis”) have been amended in execution of the decision of the Extraordinary General meeting of Shareholders of 17 August 2016. With this amendment of the Articles of Association the voluntary large company regime on the level of Boskalis has been abolished. Furthermore the nominal value per share has been decreased.
Boskalis declares that the thresholds to exercise the right of inquiry (het enquêterecht) shall not change due to the decrease in the nominal share capital. This means that article 346 sub clause 1 under c Book 2 Dutch Civil Code, and not article 346 sub clause 1 under b Book 2 Dutch Civil Code, will remain applicable to shareholders.
