The Netherlands: Boskalis Shareholders OK Share Issue
After a presentation by Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. of the offer for all the issued and outstanding shares of Dockwise Ltd., as initially announced on 26 November 2012, Boskalis shareholders voted in favor of the proposal to issue new shares.
During the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of Boskalis held this morning, in which two-thirds of the issued share capital was represented, more than 99% voted in favor of the share issue.
The EGM authorized the Board of Management to decide, during the period of 12 months from 10 January 2013 and subject to the approval of the Supervisory Board, to issue ordinary shares up to a maximum of 10 per cent of the number of ordinary shares issued at present.
This issue of ordinary shares will be used to partly finance the offer for Dockwise Ltd.
