May I still buy or sell ‘old’ ordinary shares on the Eurolist of Euronext Brussels ?
No, as from 29 February 2008, only the new shares (with their own ISIN Code) will be tradable. The ‘old’ shares (ISIN Code 3626/37) will no longer be tradable on the Eurolist of Euronext Brussels. They will no longer carry the right to participate in shareholders’ meetings or to any future dividend payment until transformation into dematerialized or registered shares has been completed. Such shares will be exchangeable for new shares until the end of 2013 when automatic dematerialization will take place. The dividends linked to the automatic dematerialized new shares, paid since the division of 29 February 2008, will then be payable in full.
