We make reference to the Kanteron Systems S.L.U. (“Kanteron Systems”) blog publication of 10 September 2018 in which Kanteron Systems announced its non-binding indication of interest for the acquisition of all Agfa-Gevaert NV shares by way of a voluntary conditional public takeover offer of Kanteron Systems to all shareholders of Agfa-Gevaert NV (the “Blog Post Statement”).

Agfa-Gevaert NV confirms that on 11 September 2018 it has received a non-binding letter of intent from Kanteron Systems relating to a voluntary conditional leveraged takeover offer on all the shares of Agfa-Gevaert NV (the “Non-Binding LOI”).
