Protection mechanism

The Foundation Continuity TomTom, was established in 2005 to act as an instrument that protects the company against hostile takeovers. The purpose of the Foundation is to safeguard the company's interests and those of its subsidiaries, as well as the interests of all stakeholders of the organisation.

The company has granted the Foundation a call option entitling it to subscribe for preferred shares up to 100% of the aggregate outstanding share capital (excluding issued and outstanding preferred shares) of the company at the time of issue. An issue of preferred shares in the manner described would cause substantial dilution of the voting power of any shareholder whose objective was to gain control of the company.

Currently, there are no preferred shares outstanding. More information on the protection mechanism can be found in the Corporate Governance section.

Dividend policy

TomTom has no current plans to distribute dividends. The company gives priority to increasing technology investments to strengthen its capabilities and competitive position and to pursuing acquisitions in its fleet management business (Telematics), whilst at the same time improving its balance sheet.

The company believes that allocating its cash resources to these priorities, serves shareholders' interests better in the longer term.
