Just Eat Takeaway.com N.V. (LSE: JET, AMS: TKWY), hereinafter the “Company”, or together with its group companies “Just Eat Takeaway.com”, hereby announces that Mr. Adriaan Nühn will not be seeking re-election as Chairman.
Mr. Nühn will therefore not be available for reappointment at today's Annual General Meeting of the Company (“AGM”) and consequently the related agenda item has been withdrawn. As a result, Mr. Nühn's term will end at the closing of today’s AGM. After the AGM, the Vice-Chair of the Supervisory Board, Ms. Corinne Vigreux, will assume the duties of Chair of the Supervisory Board, and the Supervisory Board will initiate the process for finding a successor of Mr. Nühn.
It is clear that shareholders have concerns about the challenges the Company is facing. The Supervisory Board shares and understands these concerns, and the Company has been in the process of addressing them. To ensure that the Supervisory Board can fully focus on the challenges and opportunities ahead, I believe it is important that there is strong support, particularly also among shareholders, for both the Company and the Supervisory Board. Not seeking re-election is, I believe, the best decision I can take with regard to serving the interests of the Company and its stakeholders, including its shareholders. It has been a privilege to serve as Chairman since the Company's IPO. I would like to thank the Management Board, the Supervisory Board and all employees of Just Eat Takeaway.com for their hard work and commitment to Just Eat Takeaway.com.Adriaan Nühn, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Just Eat Takeaway.com
The Supervisory Board fully understands and respects the rationale of Adriaan’s decision, with which he shows great responsibility. We have regretfully accepted his decision. Adriaan can be proud of what has been achieved since the IPO in 2016. His efforts for the Company and also as Chairman of the Supervisory Board are tremendously appreciated.Corinne Vigreux, Vice-Chair of the Supervisory Board of Just Eat Takeaway.com
Adriaan Nühn has served Just Eat Takeaway.com’s shareholders, employees, partners, consumers and other stakeholders with great distinction over the last six years. I would like to thank Adriaan for his enormous contribution to the success of the Company.Jitse Groen, CEO of Just Eat Takeaway.com
