General meeting of Shareholders 2010
On Monday 19 April 2010, the General Meeting of Shareholders adopted the annual report and the annual accounts of 2009. The Management Board and the Supervisory Board were granted discharge for the policy pursued. As proposed by the Management Board, the General Meeting of Shareholders set the dividend at $ 350 per share for 2009.
The prospects for 2010 are good. According to the Management Board, nice deals are coming up. "There is actually only one problem: money. NBZ needs more shareholders to close those deals", according to director Diederik Tjeenk Willink during the meeting. "Also the shareholders themselves can ensure that. They can make NBZ larger. Tell your friends about NBZ. Bring them to our monthly road shows. In addition, you will profit from a larger NBZ. The greater the fund, the more diversified the risk and the higher the return".
During 2009, the shareholders of NBZ have achieved dividend returns of more than 7%. NBZ expects this to increase further in 2010. The most important reason for this is that by financing the Venere, the establishing and share issue costs were largely paid off. After NBZ has completely paid off this debt, both the return as well as the share price may further increase (unforeseen negative developments excepted).
