Heading the Heineken Group, Heineken Holding N.V. is
no ordinary holding company. Since its formation in
1952, the objective of Heineken Holding N.V., pursuant
to its Articles of Association has been to manage and/
or supervise the Heineken Group and to provide
services to the Heineken Group. The role Heineken
Holding N.V. has performed for the Heineken Group
since 1952 has been to safeguard its continuity,
independence and stability and create conditions
for controlled, steady growth of the activities of
the Heineken Group. This stability has enabled the
Heineken Group to rise to its present position as the
brewer with the widest international presence and
one of the world's largest brewing groups. Every
Heineken N.V. share held by Heineken Holding N.V. is
matched by one share issued by Heineken Holding N.V.
The net asset value of one Heineken Holding N.V. share
is therefore identical to the net asset value of one
Heineken N.V. share. The dividend payable on the
two shares is also identical. Historically, however,
Heineken Holding N.V. shares have traded at a lower
price due to technical factors that are market-specific.
