Register of shareholders
The Board of Directors shall keep a register in which the names and addresses of all holders of shares are recorded, indicating the date on which they acquired the shares, the date of the acknowledgement or service as well as the amount paid-up on each share. If also an electronic address is disclosed by a shareholder for the purpose of entry into the register, such disclosure is deemed to entail the consent to receive all notifications and announcements for a meeting via electronic means.
The Board of Directors shall be authorized to keep a part of the register outside the Netherlands.
The Board of Directors may authorize an agent to keep the register for the purposes as meant in this article.
The Board of Directors shall determine the form and contents of the register with due observance of the provisions of paragraphs 1 and 2 hereof.
Upon request the Board of Directors shall provide shareholders and those who have a right of usufruct or pledge in respect of such shares free of charge with an extract from the register in respect of their rights to a share.
The Board of Directors shall be authorized to provide the authorities with information and data contained in the register of shareholders or have the same inspected to the extent that this is requested to comply with applicable foreign legislation or rules of the stock exchange where the company's shares are listed.
Transfer of shares, usufruct, pledge
A transfer of a share or a right in rem (beperkt recht) thereto requires a deed of transfer and, except in the event the company itself is party to that legal act, acknowledgement in writing by the company of the transfer.
The acknowledgement shall be given in the deed, or by a dated statement embodying such acknowledgement on the deed or on a copy or extract thereof duly authenticated by a civil-law notary or by the transferor.
Service of the deed of transfer, copy or extract on the company shall be deemed to be equal to acknowledgement.
The provisions of paragraph 1 shall apply mutatis mutandis to the creation or release of a right of usufruct and a right of pledge.
