Foundation members accept Duisenberg agreement

Most of the share leasing customers members of the foundations Leaseverlies (82% of respondents) and Eegalease (78% of respondents) have accepted the agreement proposed on 28 April 2005 after the mediation of W. Duisenberg.

As a result, the agreement with the foundations, the Consumentenbond and the Vereniging van Effectenbezitters (Dutch Association of Securities holders) is now final and the collective proceedings of the foundations Leaseverlies and Eegalease against Dexia Bank Nederland N.V. are terminated.

Dexia Bank Nederland is pleased with this outcome and will inform its clients during the coming months about the implementation of the agreement.
