Disclosure of transparency notifications
29-09-2017

Montea received transparency notifications dated 27 and 28 September respectively which showed the following:

  • Federale Participatie- en Investeringsmaatschappij NV (the parent company of Belfius Insurance NV in particular), owing to the fact that it did not subscribe to the recent increase of capital of Montea, now holds 8.7% of the voting rights of Montea through subsidiaries. It has therefore fallen under the 10% holding threshold.
  • Vitrufin NV (the parent company of Ethias NV, in particular), by acquiring shares on 26 September 2017, now holds 5.23% of the voting rights of Montea through subsidiaries. It has therefore exceeded the 5% threshold.
