RHJ International: Letter to All Shareholders in Response to "Investor Group's" Arguments in Support of their Request to Amend the Agenda for the Annual Shareholders' Meeting

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2013) - On 27 May 2013, the Company received a request from shareholders claiming to hold together 3.91% of the share capital of the Company to add a new proposed resolution under item 7 and new items 9 to 12 on the agenda of the Meeting in accordance with Article 533ter of the Belgian Companies Code.

In support of their request, these minority shareholders made a series of ill-informed assertions about the Company. The Board of Directors has therefore decided to respond to these specific assertions and to set out the reasons why the additional resolutions requested by these minority shareholders are ill-advised at this time.
