 All the ordinary shares have equal voting rights (one share, one vote).

Only (non-voting) certificates of shares are listed and traded on Euronext Amsterdam. These exchangeable certificates are issued by the Foundation Trust Office. On 31 December 2015, the Foundation administered 98.6% of the issued underlying shares and the Board of the Foundation exercises the voting rights on the underlying shares.  The Foundation is one of the three protective measures that Fugro has in place to protect itself against a hostile take-over:

  1. Certification of the ordinary shares via Foundation Trust Office
  2. Protective preference shares via Foundation Protective Preference Shares Fugro
  3. Cumulative protective preference shares via Foundation Continuity Fugro.

The rationale for these measures is as follows: When carrying out assignments, Fugro receives or can have access to clients’ extremely confidential information. For this reason, it is essential for Fugro that it can safeguard its position as an independent service provider.

More information on our protective measures is available on pages 94-95 of the Annual Report 2015.
