Activities during 2014

In 2014 the Selection and Appointment Committee held one meeting in full. In addition, the Committee consulted by telephone on several occasions. During the year under review, the Selection and Appointment Committee discussed a balanced composition of and succession planning for the Board of Management and the composition and size of the Supervisory Board, bearing in mind the Board’s pro.le and retirement rota.

According to the Supervisory Board retirement rota, the term of of.ce of Mr. Hazewinkel ended in 2014. The Supervisory Board simultaneously informed both the shareholders and the Works Council of the resulting vacancy. Mr. Hazewinkel let it be known that he was available for re-appointment. The Supervisory Board proposed to the General Meeting of Shareholders that Mr. Hazewinkel be re-appointed to the Supervisory Board. The proposal to re-appoint rested on the fact that Mr. Hazewinkel has extensive experience as a member of the Supervisory Board and puts this membership into practice with great expertise. The recommendation to re-appoint Mr. Hazewinkel was in accordance with the law and the company’s Articles of Association. The recommendation to re-appoint Mr. Hazewinkel had the full support of the Works Council. On 13 May 2014, the General Meeting of Shareholders re-appointed Mr. Hazewinkel for a period of four years.

Furthermore, the Selection and Appointment Committee discussed the extension of the term of appointment of Mr. F.A. Verhoeven as a member of the Board of Management. The Supervisory Board adopted this proposal and, having sought the opinion of the General Meeting of Shareholders, on 13 May 2014 extended Mr. Verhoeven’s appointment to the Board of Management until the General Meeting of Shareholders in 2016.

A further topic of discussion was the re-appointment of Mr. T.L. Baartmans as a member of the Board of Management. The experience of Mr. Baartmans and the competent and conscientious way in which he performs his job led the Supervisory Board to decide to submit the proposed resolution to re-appoint Mr. Baartmans for a period of four years for discussion by the General Meeting of Shareholders to be held on 12 May 2015.

Reports and findings of the meetings of the Selection and Appointment Committee were presented to the entire Supervisory Board.
