To the shareholders:

London - 6 September 2016 at 11:00 hours

As OIM has announced on this website on 20 June 2016, the annual report and financial statements for the year ended 31.12.2015 of OIM have been approved by the Board of Directors and have been signed by the auditor EY. They have been available to the public on the website since that date. Subsequently, OIM has sent these annual accounts to the Company House to be filed, as also announced on 20 June.

Due to a technicality however, Companies House has not accepted the filing of the annual accounts. Whilst OIM has been working to make the adjustments necessary for a new filing, Companies House issued the standard notice that is given when accounts and an annual return are not filed in time. This notice is also available to the public on the website of Companies House and mentions, as is legally required, the ultimate possible consequence of striking a company off the register. It should be noted that while preliminary notices commence the process of striking off, a company may rectify the situation by making the required filings. The Company is informed by its company secretary that the annual return has now been filed.

However, the Board of Directors of OIM acknowledges that the (public) notice of the Company House might be misinterpreted. Therefore, the Board deemed it prudent to request FSMA to suspend trade in shares of OIM from 5 September 2016 at 11:35 CET until the filing has been completed and the Company Register reflects the correct current status of OIM. The Board is doing its utmost to have trade resuming as soon as possible.

Update 7 September 2016, 17 h 46:
For the avoidance of any doubt: The Board of OIM informs the market that the notice of the Companies House is not connected in any way to the proposed strategy of OIM to, in the longer term, liquidate the company and Algo Vision. This future strategy was put to the AGM of 15 July 2016 as special resolution 6 and was carried, but at present no steps have been taken in this direction.

Board of Directors

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