Kimberly Enterprises N.V.

("Kimberly" or the "Company")

Change of Controlling Shareholder


Further to the announcement made on 22 March 2016, the Board of Kimberly, the AIM-quoted Eastern European residential property developer (KBE.L), has been notified that the transfer of the ownership of 1,669,927 ordinary shares in Engel Resources and Development Limited ("ERD") to the Gabay Group Limited, an Israeli real estate company, and its subsidiaries (the "Gabay Group") has not yet taken place.  As a temporary measure, the district court has approved the transfer of these shares to GBES pending regulatory approval for the transfer to be made to the Gabay Group.

As a result, GBES currently holds 2,871,460 ordinary shares in ERD (representing 53.0% of the voting right of ERD) and the Gabay Group currently holds 536,555 ordinary shares in ERD (representing 9.9% of the voting right of ERD).  A further announcement will be made once the transfer of the 1,669,927 ordinary shares to the Gabay Group has taken place.

ERD controls Engel General Developers Limited, which holds 68.35% of the issued share capital of Kimberly.

Accordingly, GBES currently holds a 36.2% economic interest in Kimberly and the Gabay Group currently holds a 6.8% economic interest in Kimberly.

In addition, Real Property Investment (Guernsey) Limited ("RPIGL") holds 6.4% of the voting rights and issued share capital of the Company. The shares of RPIGL and GBES are held by a discretionary settlement, of which certain members of the Morris family are potential beneficiaries, and which therefore currently has a combined economic interest in 42.6% of Kimberly.
