1. Which steps should I take to change the nature of my shares from dematerialized to the nominative register:

  • Ask your financial institution to provide a document with all your relevant personal information (surname, first name, address, email address (if any), cash account number, number of shares concerned);
  • Ask your financial institution to send the document in clear pdf format to shareholdersregister@tessenderlo.com with a clear copy of an identity document (ID, passport or driving license) with your handwritten signature + date.

After receipt of ALL the documents, Tessenderlo Group NV will handle the transaction free of charge. However your own financial institution may charge you a fee for this transaction, so please check with your contact person.

Tessenderlo Group NV will inform you when your shares have been transferred into the shareholders’ register. This may take between 1 and 3 weeks.
