Unilever to buy back preference shares

London/Rotterdam – Unilever today announced that it has agreed terms with NN Investment Partners B.V. (“NN”) and ASR Nederland N.V. (“ASR”) for the acquisition of all their 6% and 7% cumulative preference shares in Unilever N.V. These represent approximately 97% of all the outstanding 6% and 7% cumulative preference shares and will be acquired by means of a public offer which Unilever intends to launch so as to enable all holders of the 6% and 7% cumulative preference shares to access the same terms as have been agreed with NN and ASR. This offer would value all of the outstanding 6% and 7% cumulative preference shares at €450 million. This represents an important step in simplifying the capital structure, which Unilever has been pursuing for many years. It will make Unilever easier to understand, and improve corporate governance by strengthening the link between economic interest and voting rights for our shareholders.
