AND COMPANY BALANCE SHEETS
(NLG x 1,000)
Exchange differences reserve
In accordance with Article 389, Book 2, Title 9 of the Dutch Civil Code, it is no longer
necessary, as from the beginning of the financial year 1990, to maintain a legally required
reserve for undiscribed profits from participating interests, provided that such earnings remain
freely available in the Netherlands. As a result of this change in regulations, the legally required
reserve of NLG 103.5 million, which has been formed up to the end of 1989 in respect of
the above participating interests, has been transferred to the other reserves.
Reserves at the beginning of the year
- due to results
