Press Release

April 18th, 2006

During the Annual General Meeting it will seek shareholder approval to amend the Articles of Association of the Company to allow for an increase of the nominal share capital and a subsequent decrease of the nominal share capital of the Company to facilitate this payment to shareholders.

The Company wishes to repay an amount of circa EUR 10,000,000 to its shareholders in cash. From a Dutch dividend tax perspective, the most efficient manner to achieve this is to first increase the nominal value of the issued ordinary shares at the account of the share premium reserve of the Company and subsequently to reduce the nominal value of the issued ordinary shares by the same amount and to pay that amount to the shareholders. Both the increase and the decrease require an amendment to the Articles of Association of the Company.

The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders of Head N.V. will be held on Wednesday, 24th May at 13:00 hours (local time) at the Sheraton Hotel, Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Details concerning the agenda, the right to attend, and how to exercise rights at the Annual General Meeting will be available on Tuesday 2nd May. The Annual General Meeting will not be open to members of the general public.
