Randstad, March 26 2019

In general, Randstad is in compliance with the Dutch regulations relating to the organisation and procedures of the Annual General Meeting.

Under ITEM 5b, it is proposed to re-appoint Ms. Barbara Borra as Member of the supervisory board. Although Ms. Borra is considered independent, ECGS has concerns  over her aggregate time commitments. Ms. Borra is serving as CEO of Franke Kitchen  Systems (substantial non-listed company) and non-executive director of Brembo S.p.A. and Randstad N.V. (both listed), which exceeds ECGS' guidelines. Accordingly, ECGS recommends to vote OPPOSE.

There are no further peculiarities.
