Migration to the United Kingdom

On 16 November 2018, the Company announced its intention to migrate its legal seat and structure from the Netherlands to the United Kingdom. The Company is now pleased to announce further details. The migration will be by means of a cross border merger (the “Migration”).

As noted in the announcement of 16 November 2018 the Migration will be carried out in a manner that will ensure the transfer of the Company’s activities to the United Kingdom. There will be no change to the investment policy or dividend policy as a result of this Migration and the investment team will also remain the same. On completion of the Migration, the entire portfolio of investments of the Company will transfer to European Assets Trust PLC. Shareholders will be entitled to receive one ordinary share in European Assets Trust PLC in exchange for each share held in the Company.

Further details on the Migration

The Company has published a Circular and Convocation Notice which set out a summary of the Migration and notice of the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company for Shareholders to approve the Migration, to be held on 9 January 2019.

Further details on the Migration are set out in the Circular, Convocation Notice, Common Draft Terms of Merger and Prospectus relating to European Assets Trust PLC in the Documents and Announcements listed.
