During the Acceptance Period that expired at 17:40 CET today, 14,088,162 Securities have been tendered for acceptance pursuant to the Offer, representing approximately 95.30% of all issued and outstanding Securities, i.e. excluding any Treasury Securities.

The Securityholders that have tendered and delivered their Securities for acceptance pursuant to the Offer, will receive on the Settlement Date the Offer Price in respect of each Security validly tendered (or defectively tendered provided that such defect has been waived by the Offeror) and delivered (geleverd), under the terms and conditions set out in the Offer Memorandum and subject to the restrictions stipulated therein. Payment of the Offer Price per tendered Security will occur on 27 September 2019.
