Euronav – Organization of Special General Meeting of 9 April 2020 in the context of Covid-19

Friday, 03 April 2020 | 15:00

Reference is made to Euronav NV's Press Release titled “EURONAV – INVITATION TO THE SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING OF 9 APRIL 2020” and dated 5 March 2020 (8.00 a.m. CET) (the “Original Press Release”). Euronav, to comply with the measures taken by the governmental authorities in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to ensure the health, safety and well-being of its shareholders, has decided to organize its Special General Meeting on Thursday 9 April 2020 at 11.00 a.m. (Belgian time) by way of proxy-voting only.

No physical access to the meeting room will be permitted on 9 April 2020. Holders of European Shares (as defined in the convening notice) are however urged to vote, and can do so by proxy granted to Mr. Roeland Neyrinck, Secretary General, and Ms. Stéphanie Penen, Legal Counsel, each acting individually. Any proxy must include the instructions of the shareholder with respect to each proposed resolution. A proxy form is available at the Company's website. A scanned or photographed copy of the completed and signed proxy must be sent by email to [email protected] or by fax to +32 2 337 54 46 and must be received by the addressee no later than on 5 April 2020 (midnight CET). Votes and abstentions included in proxies already received by the Company, which appoint a different person as attorney-in-fact, will be taken into account despite the absence of such attorney-in-fact from the Special General Meeting.

Questions may only be submitted in writing. They must be sent by email to [email protected] no later than on 5 April 2020 (midnight CET). The Company shall answer such questions in writing at the latest on the day of the Special General Meeting by publishing these on the Company’s website.

All other elements related to the Special General Meeting as set forth in the Original Press Release will remain unaltered.

This decision to organize the Special General Meeting by way of proxy-voting only is taken in view of the impossibility to organize a physical shareholder meeting on 9 April 2020. The specific measures outlined above are in line with a draft Belgian Royal Decree which the Company expects to be adopted, with retro-active effect, in the coming days. In case the final version of the Royal Decree would require changes to the measures outlined above, the Company will take appropriate action and inform the shareholders.
