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.
