DGB appoints KPMG and convenes shareholders’ meeting

DGB Group N.V. (“DGB”, “the Group” or ¨the Company¨) (Euronext: DGB: NL0009169515), a leading carbon project developer and ecosystem restoration company, appoints KPMG as independent audit firm for DGB Green Earth Limited - which holds all projects and activities for the Group. This marks a key step in the organizational restructuring plan of the Company to maintain a listing on a robust exchange. DGB announces the convocation of an Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders (”EGM”) to present next steps to its shareholders. 

The engagement of KPMG completes the process of the Board of Directors to identify and appoint an independent audit firm for the activities of the Group.

DGB Green Earth Limited is headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, is wholly owned by DGB and acts as a holding company for all its subsidiaries, all its projects and all activities of the Group. KPMG will be auditing and reporting on the consolidated financial statements for the previous financial year and subsequent financial years.

The Board of Directors selected KPMG based on its reputation and scale of international capabilities.

‘KPMG is a well-respected top-tier global accounting firm with a strong practice. KPMG has worked with various businesses who operate in the carbon markets and the Irish team has been involved in this market since the early 2000s. KPMG offered us a fair fee and I am confident DGB will receive a first-class, efficient audit service, delivered by experts who have a deep knowledge of the origination and sale of carbon credits, that adds real value to our operations’, stated Duijvestijn, CEO of DGB Group.

On 13 April 2021 Euronext Amsterdam implemented a new rule, essentially meaning that companies without a Public Interest Entity audit firm face delisting. To comply with this policy, the engagement of KPMG marks a key step in DGB's organizational restructuring plan to maintain a listing on a strong exchange. 

Following the appointment of an external audit firm, DGB convenes an EGM on 26 May 2023 to present its plan to its shareholders, ensuring they are fully informed throughout the process. The EGM’s full convocation notice, agenda and the explanatory notes thereto and further EGM materials, can be downloaded from DGB’s website.
