Cumulative financing preference shares B
On 28 June 2002, Heijmans issued 6,610,000 cumulative financing preference shares B at a price of € 10 per share. The face value per ordinary share is € 0.21. As at 18 September 2015, there were 4,510,000 cumulative financing preference shares B outstanding. The face value per ordinary share is € 0.21. These shares are not quoted on a stock exchange and no depositary receipts are issued for them. The dividend is revised every five years, most recently as of 1 January 2019. From that moment until the next review date (1 January 2024), a dividend of 7.21% has been agreed, payable each year within 14 days after the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (AGM). In the interim, this yield will be reduced by 100 basis points (1%) as soon as the outstanding capital in cumulative financing preference shares B is halved compared with the amount that was outstanding at year-end 2018, this being € 45,100,000. The company has the right to repurchase or cancel these financing preference shares B at any time. Redemption elements are applicable under certain conditions during the newly agreed review period. In the event of any interim redemptions, the voting ratios are revised on 30 June each year. For information about specific agreements and associated terms and conditions, we refer you to section 6.21 of the financial statements in this annual report.
Issued share capital and equity holdings
The issued share capital and associated voting rights were last changed in 2021, as a result of 1) the issue of (depositary receipts for) shares related to the payment of compensation on the cumulative financing preference shares B in the form of (depositary receipts for) ordinary shares and 2) the issue of (depositary receipts for) shares related to the payment of the dividend on (depositary receipts for) ordinary shares in the form of a stock dividend.
In addition to this, two payments were made on the cumulative financing preference shares B from the share premium reserve as a result of the redemption elements as described in section 6.21 of the financial statements in this annual report. This pertained to 1) the dividend coupon rate and 2) an amount corresponding to 50% of the amount of dividend paid out on (depositary receipts for) ordinary shares (regardless of whether this was stock dividend or cash dividend). This reduced the value of each cumulative preference financing share B to € 6.82 from € 9.28. Following this, the voting rights ratio as per 30 June 2021 was reduced accordingly. For the background to these payments and adjustments, please see section 6.21 of the financial statements in this annual report. One cumulative preference financing share B entitles the holder to 0.871 votes. Ordinary shares entitle holders to 30 votes per share.
