Certain technical and administrative guidelines in relation to the CTAC N.V.


The Executive Board of CTAC N.V. announces that in the Annual General Meeting held on 16 May 2018 the proposed dividend has been approved by shareholders. The proposed final dividend amounts to € 0.08 per ordinary share.

The final dividend is payable, at the shareholder's election, either wholly in ordinary shares or wholly in cash. The election period is from 18 May 2018 to 01 June 2018, inclusive.

Shareholders have the opportunity to make their choice known until close of trading on Euronext Amsterdam on 01 June 2018. The ratio of the value of the stock dividend to that of the cash dividend will be determined on 06 June 2018, after the close of trading on Euronext Amsterdam based on the volume-weighted average price ('VWAP') of CTAC ordinary shares traded on Euronext Amsterdam for the three trading days period from 04 June 2018 to 06 June 2018, inclusive. There will be no trading in the stock dividend rights.

Shareholders are requested to notify ING Bank N.V. Amsterdam of their choice via their bank or broker within the election period.

If Admitted Institutions have not made their choice known at the latest on 01 June 2018 at 17:30 CEST, the final dividend will be paid out in cash. Delivery of shares to the Admitted Institutions will occur based on the total amount of dividend rights delivered, whereby a possible remaining fraction will be paid out in cash based on the VWAP mentioned above.
