Strategy 2011 – 2015 After finalising our strategy for the next period in 2010, we made a successful start in 2011 implementing the associated policy. In addition to bolstering our activities in the dredging market, particularly in the cutter suction dredging segment, we also expanded our activity in the offshore sector. One important new line of work for this division is pipe laying in shallow water. In addition, our offshore wind division has been boosted by our new wind turbine transport and installation ship, the Aeolus, and by additional staff. In the Netherlands, we are concentrating more on upcoming large-scale infrastructure projects and aim to act as a main contractor in future Design, Build, Finance & Maintain (DBFM) projects. Prospects for 2012 The global economy will remain highly volatile in 2012. Despite the recession in Europe, we believe that the world economy will grow. We do not, however, expect 2012 to be an easy year for our company. We anticipate increasing pressure on prices and a lower capacity utilisation rate for our vessels in the dredging market. On the other hand, we do foresee growth in the oil and gas markets, and in large-scale infrastructure projects in the Netherlands. This summer we will move into our new head office along the Nieuwe Maas river in Rotterdam.

Rotterdam, 13 March 2012

We foresee growth in the oil and gas markets, as well as in offshore, offshore wind farm construction, and infrastructure projects in the Netherlands.

Report by the Executive Board

Activities per area and business unit

Economic trends in various parts of the world have impacted our activities and the markets in which we operate. Europe, for example, was hit by a recession; in the Middle East and North Africa, tenders were postponed owing to the Arab Spring. In Australia, on the other hand, our involvement in a number of major new projects has considerably boosted our market position. In the following, we look more closely at trends and developments in 2011 in the various areas and business units.

Our work there remains on schedule and we witnessed a number of notable highlights in 2011. For example, an e-crane developed especially for the project – the Blockbuster – installed almost 20,000 forty-tonne concrete blocks to construct most of the hard seawall.

Key aim The key aim of our safety policy is to prevent employee injuries. That is why we need to keep improving our standard of safety – in order to minimise the risk of injury. In addition, more and more clients are asking us to prove that our employees have the necessary safety skills. Compulsory training In 2011, Van Oord decided to provide its General Safety Introduction Training in a uniform manner worldwide. The training course is compulsory for all new employees working on our projects. Important steps The Van Oord Hazard Identification Training was also revamped in 2011. The course is for employees who have been with Van Oord for at least a year. We have also developed a Van Oord Safety Leadership Training course. Its purpose is to help managers understand how they can get their team members and other employees to work more safely. The course will first be given in the Netherlands and then rolled out to key regions elsewhere. Lessons learned Employees once again showed more discipline in 2011 when it came to reporting accidents and hazardous situations. The reports allow lessons to be learned and accidents to be prevented in future. We communicate all accidents company-wide. Our employees are regularly provided with information on safe working conditions in newsletters, monthly reports, the staff magazine and on our intranet. The reports issued by the QHSE Department are discussed at every meeting of the Supervisory Board, the Executive Board, the Management Committee and the Works Council.

Maasvlakte 2: ‘Only winners’

PUMA, the consortium carrying out the Maasvlakte 2 port expansion project in Rotterdam, reached a number of notable milestones in 2011. ‘The overall importance of this mega-project is enormous,’ says Dirk Hamer, Deputy Project Director on behalf of Van Oord. ‘By expanding the facilities, we’re securing the port’s future and ensuring its growth.’ Peak PUMA started its work in 2009. ‘Since then, we’ve completed a number of the project phases. 2011 saw activity at an absolute peak.’ PUMA will finish the project in April 2013. ‘We’ve broken a record here: our trailing suction hopper dredgers delivered 4 million m3 of sand from the sea to a single project in just one week – a great example of output optimisation and the use of new working methods.’ Blockbuster Another highlight in 2011 was the special e-crane developed by PUMA for the project, known as the Blockbuster. The crane can effortlessly move forty-tonne concrete blocks at top speed. ‘We managed to build 110 metres of hard seawall a week with the Blockbuster,’ says Hamer. ‘We had to achieve that pace to keep the project on course. I’m very proud of that. We’ve now finished more than 80% of the work and we’re still on schedule.

Report by the Executive Board

IT outsourcing leads to quality improvement By outsourcing all IT applications and other functions to an external data centre, Van Oord took a major step towards professionalising IT in 2011 and laid solid foundations for the continuity and security of our business-critical applications. The number of IT applications used by Van Oord has increased dramatically in recent years, thereby increasing the company’s dependence on IT as well. Failures can have a considerable impact on our international work processes. Van Oord’s aim is to have all applications available 24/7, 365 days a year, to all staff worldwide at every location required. Outsourcing will help us achieve this goal. Factors such as electricity, cooling, permanent surveillance and IT security are guaranteed in this data centre. Standardised IT infrastructure Van Oord has a standardised system for connecting all workstations quickly and cost-effectively to the worldwide data communication network. This modern data communication system enables all our employees anywhere in the world not only to use e-mail, our intranet and the Internet but also to communicate using methods such as video conferencing and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) calls. Uniformity and quality of HR records As long ago as 2009, Van Oord started to standardise human resource processes. It established an administrative system for this purpose which can be accessed by all offices and locations. The process was completed in the Netherlands at the end of 2010. This system was also implemented worldwide in 2011.

Van Oord and its context

Reducing our carbon footprint: our planet In 2011, our sustainability policy focused largely on our CO2 or carbon footprint. Our greatest challenge is to reduce our vessels’ CO2 emissions. To do this, Van Oord has set up an Energy Management Steering Committee. The Committee advises on emission and energy consumption targets and management measures. Our energy management system was set up in accordance with the EN 16001 standard and incorporated into the Van Oord Management System. We took a major step forwards in 2011 by analysing our carbon footprint. For example, we surveyed company-wide CO2 emissions in accordance with the international ISO 14064 standard. A brainstorming session with Engineering & Estimating and the Technical Department also produced a number of energy-saving ideas. We are currently investigating the feasibility of these suggestions. Climbing the CO2 performance ladder

Van Oord and its context

Sustainability as a prerequisite: our prosperity

Building with Nature: for nature, with nature

The long-term continuity of our business is of vital importance to us. That continuity depends on our generating a healthy profit, one that enables us to pay dividends and wages in line with the market and introduce sustainable operational processes. It also gives us an opportunity to grow, and to demonstrate that growth by investing continuously in human capital and equipment. We want to make a profit, but we will never lose sight of the environment while doing so. According to Anneke Hibma, Van Oord’s Ecoshape’s Building with Nature innovation

Accounting policies Intangible fixed assets - Goodwill is the difference between the price paid for newly acquired participating interests and the value of the company’s share in the fair value determined in accordance with the accounting policies of Van Oord. Goodwill is amortised on a straight-line basis. Tangible fixed assets - Tangible fixed assets are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value, less straight-line depreciation and / or impairments of tangible fixed assets based on their expected useful economic lives as stated in the notes to the consolidated balance sheet. Additions made during the year are depreciated from the date of purchase. Financial fixed assets - Participating interests are stated at the lower of the proportional share of their net asset value determined in accordance with the accounting policies of Van Oord and net realisable value. Stocks - Raw materials and consumables are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Debtors - Debtors are stated at amortised cost, net of provisions for doubtful debts where necessary. Cash at bank and in hand - Cash at bank and in hand is stated at fair value. Provisions - Provisions are stated at non-discounted value. Long-term liabilities - Long-term liabilities are stated at amortised cost. Work in progress - Work accepted is stated at cost, plus attributed profit, less the realisable value of work completed. The profit is determined on the basis of the technical progress of the work once this profit can be estimated reliably and the progress is at least 35%. The realisable value of work completed is understood to mean the total work in progress instalments charged, plus work completed but not yet invoiced. A provision for possible losses is deducted from the balance of work in progress. General expenses are not capitalised. Other liabilities - Other liabilities are stated at amortised cost. Derivatives and hedge accounting - Van Oord nv uses derivative financial instruments ("derivatives"), such as forward currency and fuel contracts and (cross-currency) interest rate swaps, to hedge against risks associated with fluctuations in currencies, fuel prices and interest rates. Van Oord carries these instruments at cost and applies hedge accounting. Income and expenses Turnover - Net turnover represents the value of the work carried out in the year under review plus the profit on work completed in the year under review, and income from some trading activities. Costs - Costs are determined in accordance with the accounting policies set out above and are allocated to the financial year to which they relate. Provisions are formed for expected losses on work in progress. Taxes - Taxes are calculated on the basis of the result disclosed in the profit and loss account, taking into account current tax facilities and deferred tax assets and liabilities. Cash flow statement This method makes adjustments to the results for items in the profit and loss account which do not affect inflows and outflows in the year under review, movements in balance sheet items and profit and loss account items for which inflows and outflows are not deemed to be from operating activities.

8. Subordinated loan and other long-term liabilities With effect from the 2011 financial year, repayments falling due within one year are classified as current liabilities. Comparative figures for 2010 have been restated. In April 2011, a Revolving Credit Facility in the amount of EUR 405 million and a US Private Placement in the equivalent of USD 501 million were arranged in order to extend and partially replace existing credit lines. The Revolving Credit Facility has a term of 5 years, while the US Private Placement has 4 tranches with terms of 8, 10, 12 and 15 years. It was converted into EUR 358 million using a cross-currency swap. Further details of effective interest rates, remaining maturities and currencies in which the interest-bearing liabilities are denominated are provided in the note on financial instruments under 'Interest rate risks'. The average rate of interest on long term loans in 2011 was 4.57%. The repayment of long term liabilities after 5 years until final maturity amounts to EUR 379 million (EUR 8 million). No direct security is provided for the loans. 9. Work in progress Cost of work in progress, profit recognised, provision for expected losses Realisable value of work completed

Financial instruments General Van Oord and its group companies use various financial instruments as part of their normal business activities. These are either accounted for under assets and liabilities or not included in the balance sheet. Credit risk In principle, payment risks are covered by bank guarantees, insurance, etc., unless the creditworthiness of the debtor has been assured. These procedures and the geographical spread of the group companies activities limit exposure to credit concentrations and market risks. Liquidity risk The principle underlying liquidity risk management is that sufficient cash resources must be maintained or credit facilities available to meet current and future financial commitments under both normal and exceptional circumstances. Liquidity forecasts, which include available credit facilities, form part of the regular management information provided to the Executive Board. In view of the nature of the activities and corresponding strongly fluctuating cashflows, the available cash at bank and in hand is usually not tied up for more than one year. Foreign exchange risk Many project contracts are denominated in foreign currencies. Virtually all positions in foreign currencies are fully hedged by means of forward exchange contracts. Forward currency contacts concluded to hedge against exchange rate fluctuations are valued at cost, and cost hedge accounting is applied. Differences in forward rates arising from renewed forward exchange contracts are included in the balance sheet under current liabilities or assets. Forward exchange contracts are concluded for future cash flows mainly in US and Singapore dollars. For this purpose, an amount of EUR 0.2 million is included under other receivables at 31 December 2011, which is released as soon as the hedged future cash flow occurs. In 2010, EUR 8 million was recognised under other liabilities for this purpose. The portion of the long-term loan denominated in US dollars has been hedged against foreign exchange risks using a cross-currency swap. At 31 December 2011, an amount of EUR 23 million is included under other receivables for this purpose. In 2010, EUR 5 million was recognised under other liabilities for this purpose. Interest rate risk Liabilities are both of a variable-interest and a fixed-interest nature. The principle underlying interest rate risk management with respect to loans taken out is that interest rates are generally fixed for the loan's entire term. This is achieved by using (cross-currency) interest rate swaps. Van Oord carries these instruments at cost and applies cost hedge accounting. The effective interest rates and maturities of long-term receivables from third parties, cash at bank and in hand, and longterm loans are as follows. At 31 December 2011 (x EUR 1,000)

Fuel price risk The fuel price risk is largely hedged by entering into forward contracts and contractual arrangements with principals. Van Oord carries these forward contracts at cost and applies cost hedge accounting. Financial instruments included in the balance sheet and fair value The fair value of financial instruments included in the balance sheet, such as financial fixed assets, cash at bank and in hand, debtors, and current and long-term liabilities, is virtually identical to their carrying value. Financial instruments not included in the balance sheet and fair value As at 31 December 2011, the value of the forward exchange contracts at the forward rates amounted to EUR 274 million (EUR 395 million). The value of the currencies to be received under these contracts at the exchange rates at 31 December 2011 was EUR 288 million (EUR 411 million). At 31 December 2011, the fair value of the (cross-currency) interest rate swaps was EUR 13 million. At 31 December 2011, the fair value of the forward fuel contracts was EUR 0.1 million.

Commitments not shown in the balance sheet Warranty commitments The warranty commitments not included in the balance sheet amounted to EUR 534 million at year-end 2011 (EUR 443 million). A portion of the risks arising from this has been reinsured. The vast majority of the commitments relate to performance bonds issued to clients, which is standard practice in marine contracting. Van Oord is involved in a number of legal claims. Based on the information available, Van Oord believes any potential negative outcomes have been sufficiently provided for. Rental and lease commitments Total commitments under long-term rental and lease contracts amount to EUR 14 million (EUR 12 million). An amount of EUR 8 million will be repaid in 2012. Total operational car lease commitments amount to EUR 8 million, of which EUR 4 million will be repaid in 2012. Capital commitments Commitments relating to investments in tangible fixed assets amounted to EUR 336 million at the balance sheet date (EUR 492 million).

Related parties Van Oord classifies group companies, the Executive Board, the Supervisory Board and the shareholders as related parties. Related-party transactions are carried out on terms applied in third-party transactions.

11 en 12. Gross profit Gross profit represents the balance of net turnover and the cost of work, plus the profit recognised on work in progress. Gross profit also includes: • the addition to or release from the provision for expected losses on work in progress; • prior-year income and expenses on work completed in previous years; • income from fixed operating assets charged as rent to projects and third parties, less operating expenses, including periodic maintenance costs, and excluding depreciation; • various items of income and expenditure, such as gains on the sale of tangible fixed assets, exchange differences and compensation for damage; • depreciation and/or impairments of tangible fixed assets; • amortisation of goodwill. 13. General administrative expenses General administrative expenses are costs not charged to projects, such as head office, corporate department and foreign costs. In accordance with Section 382a of part 2 of Book 2 of the Netherlands Civil Code we specify the expenses for services provided by our independent auditor, Ernst & Young Accountants LLP. The fees for audit of annual reports of group companies, included in the consolidated financial statements of Van Oord, amount to EUR 0.3 million (EUR 0.3 million). The fees for other auditservices in 2011 amount to EUR 0.1 million (EUR 0.1 million) and the other non-audit fees amount to EUR 0.1 million (EUR 0.1 million). All fees are included in the general administrative expenses. 14. Interest Interest income Interest expense

Glossary Amortisation Depreciation of intangible assets such as goodwill.

EBIT Earnings Before Interest and Taxes.

Backhoe A backhoe is a type of grab crane dredging pontoon. It consists of a hydraulic grab crane mounted on a dredging pontoon. The dredging pontoon is usually held in place by three spud poles. Backhoes are used to dredge heavy clay, soft stone, blast rock and soil thought to contain boulders, for example in foreshore protection operations.

EBITDA Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortisation.

Blockbuster A modified equilibrium crane (e-crane) used to construct hard seawalls. The Blockbuster was developed and built by Van Oord as part of a joint venture. BRIC countries Brazil, Russia, India and China. These are countries with rapidly growing economies. Carbon Disclosure Project Project whose aim is drive greenhouse gas emissions reduction and sustainable water use by business by providing a transformative global system to measure, disclose, manage and share environmental information. Carbon footprint Depiction of CO2 emissions resulting from operational activities in a specific period. The carbon footprint makes it possible to compare the environmental impact of differing activities or countries. Cutter suction dredger A cutter suction dredger is a stationary or self-propelled vessel that uses a rotating cutter head to loosen the material in the bed (‘cutting’). A suction inlet located beneath the cutter head (known as the suction mouth) is connected by a suction tube directly to one or more centrifugal pumps. The vacuum force at the suction inlet sucks up the loosened material. The suction tube and cutter head are attached to a ladder. The ladder with cutter head is positioned at the fore of the vessel. On the aft side, the cutter generally has two spud poles. One spud pole (the auxiliary spud) passes straight through the vessel, while the other is mounted on a movable spud carriage, which spud carriage can be moved lengthwise along the vessel or pontoon. Steel cables are used to move the ladder or cutter head back and forth, with the spud in the spud carriage as the centre of each concentric circle that it describes. Moving the spud carriage causes the cutter suction dredger to move as well (‘stepping’). The cutter suction dredger discharges the dredged material directly to shore via a floating pipeline or into a barge with a special loading system. DBFM Design, Build, Finance & Maintain. Drilling and blasting Drilling and blasting is a method used to fragment rocky beds. Hard rock may need to be removed in the course of various infrastructure projects, for example when constructing port access channels, digging trenches for pipelines and cables, or constructing quays. Drilling and blasting may also be used to remove underwater obstacles.

Emissions Emissions of pollutants. Fallpipe vessel A fallpipe vessel can install rock on an ocean or river bed using a fallpipe. Rock installation work is usually meant to protect subsea structures, in most cases pipelines or cables. A layer of quarry stone can also serve to reinforce and level the subsea bed, making it a suitable platform for building drilling platforms or other structures. Global Reporting Initiative International organisation that has established guidelines for sustainability reporting. IF Incident Frequency or Injury Frequency, the number of accidents leading to absence per one hundred employees. IEA International Energy Agency. A Paris-based intergovernmental organisation with 26 member countries (mainly Western nations). The IEA was founded in 1973. Its core mission is to coordinate an emergency response to oil supply disruptions. The IEA advises its member countries but also maintains relationships with other countries such as Russia, China and India. IMO The London-based International Maritime Organization encourages and facilitates the adoption of international standards in matters concerning maritime safety and the prevention and control of marine pollution from ships. Marine Ingenuity Van Oord’s corporate motto. It stands for a passionate, smart, shrewd, international marine contractor that finds innovative solutions to its clients’ and partners’ problems. Maritime Labour Convention International convention governing working and living conditions on board sea-going vessels. Multicat A working vessel equipped with a winch and hydraulic crane. North/South Metro Line The North/South Metro Line will link the north side of Amsterdam to the city’s south side. The metro will provide rapid, safe and convenient transport through the heart of the city for some 185,000 passengers a day. With road traffic growing rapidly, the North/South Metro Line is part of the national government’s plan to offer the inhabitants of the Amsterdam Region an alternative to the car.

Room for the river Dutch national programme intended to improve flood safety and protect the rivers region of the Netherlands against flooding. More room will be created at 39 locations along the rivers IJssel, Waal, Merwede, Nederrijn, Lek, Oude Maas, Bergsche Maas and Steurgat. In addition to flood safety, the programme also represents an investment in spatial quality. The rivers region will be more attractive, with more space for nature and for leisure pursuits. The plans are being carried out by 17 partners contracted by the provinces, municipalities and water boards involved and by RWS. The Minister of Infrastructure and the Environment bears the final responsibility. Shallow Water Pipe Lay Barge (SWPL) Barge for the installation of pipelines in shallow water. Solvency Equity divided by balance sheet total, i.e. tangible and intangible assets (expressed as a %). TEU Twenty-foot equivalent unit. A TEU is a container measuring 20 feet in length, 8 feet in width, and 8 feet in height.

Trailing suction hopper dredger A trailing suction hopper dredger has large, powerful pumps and engines that enable it to suck up sand, clay, sludge and even gravel from ocean or river beds. One or two suction pipes run from the vessel to the bed. A draghead is attached to the end of the pipe and lowered to just above the bed, making it possible to regulate the mixture of sand and water that it takes in. A trailing suction hopper dredger generally stores the dredged material in its own hopper and discharges the left-over water overboard. It can empty its hopper in a variety of different ways: • Depositing – Opening doors or valves on the bottom of the vessel so that the hopper contents drop out. • Pumping – Using jet pumps or water jets to pump water into the hopper at high pressure so that the sand becomes ‘fluid’ again. The dredge pumps can then pump the resulting mixture through pipelines hooked up to the vessel. • Rainbowing – This is the same as ‘pumping’, except that the hopper contents are not pumped through a pipeline first, but are instead deposited directly at the desired location through a pressure pipe positioned at or near the vessel’s bow and fitted with a nozzle. Vertical drainage Vertical drain installation is a very cost-effective ground treatment method for consolidating water-saturated soil and increasing soil stability. Pre-loading can be shortened and reduced, resulting in lower project costs and a shorter consolidation time before construction work can start. Future maintenance costs are also lower due to reduced residual settlement. Vertical drain installation is also an effective method of reducing groundwater hypertension near slopes and surcharges, thereby reducing the risks of slope failure.
