Composition of supervisory board

This afternoon the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders approved the intended reappointment of Mr. Robert-Jan van de Kraats as member of the Supervisory Board of Ordina N.V. for a period of 4 years. In addition, Mr. Jo van Engelen has resigned from the Ordina Supervisory Board. He has joined the Board of Directors of APG Groep, where one of his responsibilities will be IT-related matters.

The search is currently on for a suitable replacement for Mr. Van Engelen.

Proxies

As usual, the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders granted a number of proxies.

This proxy has been capped at 20% of Ordina’s outstanding share capital starting today. In addition, the Annual General Meeting authorised the Management Board to repurchase treasury shares for up to 10% of the outstanding share capital at a price not exceeding the average closing price of the Ordina N.V. share on the five trading days prior to the actual purchase, plus 10%.
