Bert van der Els, chairman of the Heijmans Executive Board:
'The market remains tough and challenging. The measures we have taken at Non-
Residential are showing the first tentative signs of having a positive impact.
Developments in Roads, Civil, Belgium and Germany were stable. However, Property
and Residential continued to decline. The use of our innovative potential is the
way to create added value. Our innovations, with Smart Highway as a key example,
are attracting considerable international attention and we will continue to
build on this in the coming period. We intend to increase our share capital by
almost 10% to strengthen our balance sheet, but also to back-up corporate
development and leverage on innovative potential. The offering is supported by
major shareholders of Heijmans, of which a major shareholder, as well as the
executive board, has committed to acquire shares in the offering.'
