These tendered Shares represent approximately 60.55% of all the Company's issued and outstanding share capital (geplaatst kapitaal), i.e. excluding 475,687 Shares held in treasury by the Company. The Executive and Supervisory Board of TenCate have confirmed to the Offeror that they will not approve a waiver by the Offeror of the minimum acceptance condition (as set out in Offer Condition 3.9(b) (Acceptance Level) included in the Offer Memorandum) if the Acceptance Level is less than 66.7%. Given that the Acceptance Level is 60.55%, the Offer will not be declared unconditional on or before 21 December 2015. The Offeror will announce whether the Offer will be extended or terminated on or before 21 December 2015.
