Agenda item 23 – resolution
Proposal to reduce the capital through cancellation of shares.
The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting resolves to reduce the issued share capital through cancellation of shares. The purpose of the reduction is to support the Company’s share buy back programme. It is restricted to a maximum of 10% of the issued share capital as shown in the annual accounts for the financial year 2007. Only shares held by the Company may be cancelled. The resolution further applies to all shares that the Company has acquired up to and including 15 May 2008, in the context of its share buy back programme, which number will be reported at the meeting. Shares that the Company holds in treasury for hedging share (option) plans will not be cancelled. The number of shares that will be cancelled following this resolution will be determined by the Board of Directors. Each time the amount of the capital reduction will be stated in the resolution of the Board of Directors that shall be filed at the Chamber of Commerce in Rotterdam.
