Boskalis shareholders approve share issue
Papendrecht, 10 January 2013
After a presentation by Royal Boskalis Westminster
N.V. (Boskalis) 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.
