When preparing for your AGM, you will need to be aware of the legal timeline applicable in the Dutch Market.
Given the fact that roughly 80% of the bearer shares are held outside of the Netherlands, it is important to engage with your investors, no matter where they are based. Institutional investors will often have earlier voting deadlines, due to dates imposed by their global custodians. In addition, Institutional investors are influenced either by Proxy Advisors or by their own voting guidelines. Our business line Georgeson can assist with identifying, contacting and communicating with your investors, wherever they are in the world.
