Regulated Information

To the shareholders:

LONDON - July 6, 2015 at 19:00 hours

In the Company's announcement dated June 1, 2015, the board of directors of the Company ("Board") informed its shareholders that a copy of the annual report and accounts of the Company for the financial year ended 31st December 2014 would be dispatched to all shareholders entitled to receive the same (that is, shareholders registered in the register of members of the Company maintained on behalf of the Company by Capita Registrars ("Shareholders")) before the end of June, 2015.

The Company is facing delays as a result of the serious difficulties caused by the incomplete administrative affairs of the Company, as described in more detail in the announcement of June 1, 2015 to which the Board refers. The incomplete affairs have a stronger impact as a result of the Company being an English public company, listed in Belgium with its main activities and investments in Germany.

As Shareholders are entitled to a minimum of 21 clear days' notice of the AGM, the date of the AGM will be announced as soon as the accounts are sent to the Shareholders. At that same time a circular and proxy form will be sent to all Shareholders and placed on the Company website. During the AGM, the Board will again read a statement regarding the activities of the Company over the past half year.

The Board and its auditors are working with all alacrity to ready these accounts and have them sent to the Shareholders as soon as practicable. To this end, the Board has requested extra assistance from BDO in Belgium and the UK. The Board apologizes for this delay. The Shareholders will be informed further by 10 July 2015.

Board of Directors

Mr. P. Zwart (CEO)
Mr. W. Bouma
Mr. A. van Raak
