Amendment to the Articles of Association and the Trust Conditions

News item -

24 April 2019 it was resolved by the holders of depositary receipts to approve the amendments to the Articles of Association and the Trust Conditions of Stichting Administratiekantoor Continuïteit ABN AMRO Group (STAK AAG).

As a result of these amendments the Articles of Association and the Trust Conditions are brought in line with ABN AMRO’s intention to introduce a simplification of its legal structure, involving a merger of ABN AMRO Group N.V. and ABN AMRO Bank N.V., with ABN AMRO Bank N.V. as the surviving party. The proposal concerned has been put on the agenda of the General Meeting of Shareholders (GMS) of ABN AMRO of 24 April 2019.

The main change to the Articles of Association and the Trust Conditions concerns the name: Stichting Administratiekantoor Continuïteit ABN AMRO Group (STAK AAG) will from now on be referred to as Stichting Administratiekantoor Continuïteit ABN AMRO Bank (STAK AAB). In other places too, the reference to ABN AMRO Group will be replaced by ABN AMRO Bank. In addition a number of changes will be implemented as a result of changes to the Euronext Rulebook. A number of transitional provisions required by the merger will furthermore be added. No changes will be made to the objects of the foundation, nor to the way in which it operates, since the changes concerned are not substantive changes. Accordingly, the rights of the holders of depositary receipts will not be affected.

The amendments to the Articles of Association and the Trust Conditions will enter into force as soon as the merger has become effective.
