PrEFERRED SHARES

The Foundation Continuity TomTom was established in 2005. The purpose of the Foundation is to safeguard the interests of the company and all of its stakeholders. It does so by ensuring that the company is in a position to resist influences that could affect its independence, continuity and/or corporate identity in any manner that would be in contravention of the interests of the company or its stakeholders.

The company has granted the Foundation a call option entitling it to subscribe for preferred shares up to 100% of the aggregate outstanding share capital (excluding issued and outstanding preferred shares) of the company at the time of issue. An issue of preferred shares in the manner described would cause substantial dilution of the voting power of any shareholder whose objective was to gain control of the company.

Currently, there are no preferred shares outstanding. More information on the Foundation can be found in the Corporate Governance section.
