Shareholder structure


Broad base of international shareholders

AkzoNobel, which has a 100 percent free float, has a broad base of international shareholders. An analysis of the shareholder structure carried out in January 2013 showed that at 45 percent, the US and Canada make up the largest regional group of investors. Investors from the UK and Ireland hold 12 percent. Shareholders from the Netherlands hold 12 percent of AkzoNobel shares, while a further 16 percent are held by investors from the rest of Europe. Around 9 percent of the company’s share capital is held by private investors, most of whom are resident in the Netherlands.

Sustainability is becoming more important for our investors. Around 39 percent of our shares are held by institutions that are signatories of the UN PRI (United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment). The sum of holdings by institutions that focus on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) issues in some capacity is around 29 percent.
