No requests by the intermediary for advance notice or commissions in respect for its performing the above duties shall be payable by the company.

Owners of shares not yet in dematerialized form intending to take part in the general meeting shall deliver them to an intermediary of their choosing in advance for them to be entered in the central dematerialized clearing system, and request the aforementioned notice to be issued.
