ING Group wishes to encourage the participation of its shareholders and depositary receipt holders. In this context, the online EVO platform was launched last year. The EVO platform makes it easier for depositary receipt holders to cast their vote prior to the meeting by issuing binding voting instructions to the ING Trust Office. Furthermore, depositary receipt holders can register for the meeting via the EVO platform, issue a proxy to a third party and view or change voting instructions that have already been issued. The ING Trust Office will carry out all voting instructions during the meeting.
