Beter Bed Holding NV: Beter Bed dividend proposal approved

The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders of Beter Bed Holding N.V. held on
19 May 2015 declared a final dividend of € 0.37 per ordinary share of
nominally € 0.02 each for the 2014 financial year.

An interim dividend of € 0.28 was paid in November 2014. The total dividend
for 2014 consequently amounts to € 0.65, resulting in a pay-out ratio of 85%.
A dividend of € 0.27 was paid for 2013 (pay-out ratio: 72%).
The final dividend will be paid entirely in cash.

The following schedule will apply to the payment of the dividend:

21 May 2015 listing ex-dividend
22 May 2015 record date
5 June 2015 payment of dividend

Dividend policy
The dividend policy of Beter Bed Holding is aimed at maximising shareholder
returns while maintaining a healthy capital position. The company's objective
is to, subject to certain conditions, pay out at least fifty percent of the
net profit to shareholders. This will be done in the form of payment of an
interim dividend following publication of the third-quarter figures and
payment of a final dividend following the adoption of the financial
statements and following the approval of the dividend proposal by the Annual
General Meeting of Shareholders. This method makes it possible to spread the
payment of dividend evenly across the year. The company's solvency must never
fall below thirty percent on any given publication date as a result of the
payment of dividend. The net interest-bearing debt/EBITDA ratio may never
exceed two.

Supervisory Board composition
At the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders of Beter Bed Holding on 19 May
2015, Ms E.A. de Groot was reappointed as Supervisory Director for a term
ending after the first Annual General Meeting to be held after four years
upon her appointment.

The composition of the Supervisory Board of Beter Bed Holding N.V., Mr D.R.
Goeminne (Chairman), Mr A.J.L. Slippens (Vice Chairman), Ms E.A. de Groot and
Mr W.T.C. van der Vis, remains unchanged.

Appointment of new external auditor
At the Annual General Meeting of 19 May 2015 PwC was also appointed to the
post of external auditor to conduct the audit of the 2015 financial
statements. The audit will be conducted by Mr W.C. van Rooij. As from 1991 Mr
Van Rooij fulfilled various positions at PwC and since 2006 he is partner at
PwC.
