Koninklijke Boskalis Westminster - AGM 08 May 2019

In general, Koninklijke Boskalis Westminster ("Boskalis") is in compliance with the Dutch regulations relating to the organisation and procedures of the Annual General Meeting.

Under ITEM 8d, it is proposed to re-appoint Mr. Jaap van Wiechen as Member of the supervisory board for a term of appointment of 4 years. ECGS notes that the proposed term of appointment is NOT in accordance with provision 2.2.2 of the Dutch Corporate Governance Code. Aforementioned provision stipulates that "a supervisory board member is appointed for a period of four years and may then be re-appointed once for another four-year period. The supervisory board member may then be subsequently be re-appointed again for a period of two years, which appointment may be extended by at most two years". Based on the above, ECGS recommends to vote OPPOSE.
