Issue of shares
Shares shall be issued pursuant to a resolution of the Executive Board, subject to the prior approval of the Supervisory Board. The authority vested in the Executive Board shall relate to all unissued shares in the authorised capital.
The duration of this authority shall be determined by a resolution of the General Meeting of Shareholders and shall amount to a maximum of five years.
If no authorisation is given, the issue of shares requires a resolution of the General Meeting of Shareholders. Such resolution may only be taken upon a proposal by the Executive Board that has been approved by the Supervisory Board.
Currently, the Executive Board is not authorised to resolve the issuance of shares. Therefore, the issuance of shares requires the approval of the General Meeting of Shareholders.
Unless Dutch law prescribes otherwise, Wessanen shareholders have pro rata pre-emptive rights to subscribe for new issuances of shares. These pre-emptive rights may, subject to the prior approval of the Supervisory Board, be restricted or excluded by the corporate body that is authorised to issue shares.
