The Dutch court in summary proceedings today ruled in favour of Fugro and dismissed a claim by Boskalis to force a shareholders' vote at Fugro's annual shareholders' meeting scheduled for 30 April 2015 on a recommendation in respect of one of Fugro's three protective measures.
Fugro has always indicated that it is willing to discuss the item in its shareholders' meeting and will consequently include it in the agenda for its shareholders' meeting as a discussion item. This ensures that all shareholders will have ample opportunity to discuss the item at the meeting.
Fugro reiterates that it highly values its position as independent provider of geotechnical and survey data, services and advice, which is core to Fugro's strategy and the foundation of Fugro's global market leadership in these areas. The protective measures Fugro has had in place for many years safeguard its independent position.
