*On 15 February 2005 after close of trading NV converted the €0.05 cumulative preference shares. As a consequence, the notional value of the shares reduced to €0.05. A proposal will be put to the Annual General Meeting of NV on 10 May 2005 to cancel the preference shares upon repayment of the notional amount in accordance with NVs Articles of Association. Upon adoption of the proposal to cancel these preference shares, it is intended that the payment of accrued dividends on the preference shares for the relevant part of the second period of 2005 will occur at the time of the repayment of the notional value of the cancelled cumulative preference shares.
