The Netherlands: Boskalis Provides Offer Update
With reference to the press release of 21 December 2012 in which Boskalis announced its decision to make an all cash voluntary public offer for all the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of Dockwise at a price of EUR 18.50 per share (the Offer) and to expect the offer document to be sent to Dockwise shareholders on or around 21 January 2013, Boskalis hereby confirms that the offer document will be sent to the regulators for approval early January 2013.
