Following its transformation to a company focusing on the European organic
foods market, Wessanen is revisiting its business and financial processes and
procedures to fit the new organisation. In light of these changes, the Company
has decided that it may benefit from the fresh perspective at existing
processes and procedures by a new external audit firm, to help the Company in
this transition. Management has started a process to select a new audit firm.
This selection process is expected to be finalised by 30 March 2010. Hence,
Wessanen will announce the nomination of the external auditor to audit the 2010
financial statements no later than 30 March 2010.
Mr Theo de Kool will step down from the Supervisory Board immediately after the
General Meeting of Shareholders. His wish to step down is related to changes in
his professional life. We like to thank him for the valuable contributions he
made over the years. Mr Frank van Oers will succeed Mr De Kool as chairman of
the Audit Committee.
