Policy of the Stichting
The purpose of the Stichting is to safeguard the interests of Van Lanschot Kempen and its stakeholders, and to avert outside influences that could threaten its continuity, autonomy or identity to the detriment of such interests. The Stichting pursues its purpose by acquiring Class C preference shares in the capital of Van Lanschot Kempen, and by exercising the rights attached to these shares.
The following circumstances may lead to the issuance of Class C preference shares:
- A concentration of shares or depositary receipts for shares in Van Lanschot Kempen as a result of purchases on the stock market or the purchase of blocks of shares, other than as a pure investment;
- Merger talks that do not lead to an agreement;
- The announcement of a public bid, whether or not in combination with the above circumstances;
- A proposal by a shareholder or holder of depositary receipts of shares to place an item on the agenda that represents a potential threat to Van Lanschot Kempen’s continuity, identity and/or independence.
