Stakeholders will be invited to vote at a public meeting on December 10 in Rotterdam on the proposed changes, including the creation of a series of shares, whereas previously cited in Group A and Class B shares.

A spokesman for the group told AFP Stakeholders will vote on ending the panel’s requirement to be headquartered in the Netherlands, which would mean moving to the UK.
