Dutch state gives up TNT golden share

The Dutch state has reached an agreement with TNT to give up its ‘golden share’ in the postal firm. The share had given the government special control rights, such as allowing it to veto a takeover. The European Court of Justice ruled in September that the share contravened EU law. The government still owns a 10% stake in TNT.
