SHAREHOLDER BASE OVERVIEW*
* Per reference date 31 December 2021
The above percentages are based on notification of substantial holdings in Accell Group to the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) pursuant to the Financial Supervision Act (Wft). As soon as an interest rises to 3% or more of the issued share capital or voting rights, the holder must report same. Shareholders are subsequently obliged to file a new notification as soon as their interest reaches, exceeds or drops below one of the following thresholds: 3%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 75% and 95%. This may be the case if a shareholder obtains or loses control of shares or voting rights, or as a result of an increase or decrease in the Company’s issued capital.
The existing reservation and dividend policy reads: "Accell aims for a stable dividend policy aimed at making at least 40% of the net operating profit available to shareholders."
On 24 January 2022, Accell Group and Sprint BidCo B.V. (the "Offeror", an entity controlled by investment funds of KKR) jointly announced that they had reached conditional agreement on a recommended all-cash public offer by the Offeror for all issued and outstanding shares in Accell Group N.V. at an offer price of € 58.00 (cum dividend) in cash per share. Cum dividend means that dividends with a record date prior to the settlement of the public offer will be deducted from the offer price of EUR 58.00 per share. For this reason, Accell Group will not propose a dividend payment in respect of the 2021 financial year to the General Meeting.
Accell strives to provide its shareholders, potential shareholders, analysts and other financial stakeholders with all relevant strategic, financial and other material information, accurately, meticulously and in a timely fashion, to improve insight into the Company, current developments and the market in which it operates.
Accell's financial year is the same as the calendar year and runs from January through December. Accell Group publishes its full financial results annually and semi-annually. From 2017 onwards, Accell Group only publishes interim trading updates on the Company’s financial and operational developments when there is reason to do so. Such publications, as well as other (non-financial) announcements, appointments and reports, will always be made in accordance with the prevailing regulations and the guidelines of Euronext Amsterdam and the AFM.
Accell organizes meetings and conference calls with (institutional) investors, analysts and gives interviews to the media for the presentation and explanation of the annual and interim results.
In 2021, due to the restrictions posed by the pandemic, the Company did not organize or participate in physical roadshows to meet with investors. Instead, management participated in multiple (16) virtual roadshows and investor conferences, in which they engaged with investors from across all regions. Next to that a considerable number of meetings with (potential) investors took place by means of video conferencing.
