Disclosure of major shareholdings

In accordance with the provisions of Title II of the Law of 2 May 2007 and the Royal Decree of 14 February 2008 on disclosure of major shareholdings in issuers whose shares are admitted to trading on a regulated market, s.a. D’Ieteren n.v. announces that on 2 November 2011, Nayarit Participations s.c.a. notified the company that on October 27th, 2011, it had acquired 871,260 D’Ieteren shares in the market, representing 1.44% of the voting rights attached to the shares issued by the company.

Following this acquisition, the concerned shareholders’ participation in voting rights in s.a. D’Ieteren n.v. is as follows:

- the Nayarit Group, composed of s.c.a. Nayarit Participations, Mr. Roland D’Ieteren and
Mr Nicolas D’Ieteren, mutually associated, crosses the 35% threshold (35,56% vs 34,12% previously). This group acts in concert with SPDG Group on the one hand, and with s.a. Cobepa on the other hand. Mr. Roland D’Ieteren controls s.c.a. Nayarit Participations;

- the SPDG Group, composed of s.a. de Participations et de Gestion, Reptid Commercial Corporation (Dover, Delaware), Mrs. Catheline Périer-D’Ieteren and Mr. Olivier Périer, mutually associated, acting in concert with the Nayarit Group on the one hand, and with s.a. Cobepa on the other hand, owns 25.10% (unchanged) of the shares to which voting rights are attached. Mrs. Catheline Périer-D’Ieteren controls s.a. SPDG which controls on its turn Reptid Commercial Corporation;

The aggregate shareholding of the Nayarit and SPDG groups consequently crosses the 60% threshold (60,66% vs 59,22% previously).

- s.a. Cobepa, acting in concert with, on the one hand, the Nayarit Group and, on the other hand, the SPDG Group, owns 3.53% (unchanged) of the shares to which voting rights are attached. s.a. Vedipar controls 100% of s.a. Vedihold which controls 52.73% of s.a. Cobehold. s.a. Cobehold controls 95% of s.a. Cobepa. No shareholder owns more than 20% of Vedipar s.a.
