Vereniging Aegon amends articles of incorporation

The Hague, August 14, 2005

Vereniging Aegon and Aegon N.V. announce an amendment to the Articles of Incorporation of Vereniging Aegon.

The amendment limits Aegon N.V.'s influence on future changes to the Articles of Incorporation of Vereniging Aegon. In the event of an undesired change in control at the General Meeting of Shareholders of Aegon N.V., Vereniging Aegon may, under certain circumstances, amend its Articles of Incorporation without Aegon N.V.'s cooperation.

This follows the changes in Aegon N.V.'s corporate governance, which were implemented in May 2003.

For further information on Aegon's corporate governance please refer to the appropriate section of this site and for the Articles of Incorporation of Vereniging Aegon please refer to www.verenigingAegon.nl.
