Dividend policy Koninklijke DSM N.V. (DSM)

DSM’s policy is to provide a stable and preferably rising dividend to its shareholders.
Dividend per ordinary share over financial year

北京快3线路 Final dividend 2018 Koninklijke DSM N.V.

The DSM Annual General Meeting of Shareholders passed a resolution on 8 May 2019 to declare a dividend for the financial year 2018 of €2.30 per ordinary share, an increase of €0.45 (24%) from the €1.85 paid for 2017. An interim dividend of €0.77 per ordinary share was paid in August 2018, thus the final dividend amounts to €1.53 per ordinary share.

This final dividend of €1.53 will be paid out in cash or in the form of ordinary shares at the option of the shareholder. Dividend in cash will be paid after deduction of 15% Dutch dividend withholding tax. Stock dividend will be paid out from DSM’s own treasury shares [obtained through its share repurchase program,] and subject to the conditions as stated in the Notes to the AGM agenda. The ex-dividend date on Euronext Amsterdam will be 10 May 2019 and the record date will be 13 May 2019.

A maximum of 40% of the total dividend amount is available for stock dividend. If shareholders wish to receive in aggregate a distribution in shares which exceeds this maximum percentage of the total dividend, those shareholders who have opted for distribution in the form of shares will receive their stock dividend on a pro rata basis, with the remainder being distributed in cash (after deducting 15% Dutch dividend withholding tax).

Shareholders have from 14 May until 27 May 2019 (15:00 CEST) to indicate if they wish to receive their dividend in the form of ordinary shares, otherwise it will be distributed in cash. The conversion rate between the cash dividend and the stock dividend will be determined on 28 May 2019 after the close of trading on Euronext Amsterdam. This exchange ratio will be based on the volume weighted average price (VWAP) of all ordinary shares in DSM traded at Euronext Amsterdam over a period of five trading days from 21 May 2019 up to and including 27 May 2019. The value of the stock dividend will be virtually equal to the value of the cash dividend. The ordinary shares that constitute the stock dividend are entitled to any dividend for the financial year 2019 and to the dividends for subsequent financial years. Stock dividend rights will not be traded on Euronext Amsterdam.

The following timetable applies:

  • 10 May 2019: Ex-dividend quotation
  • 13 May 2019: Record Date
  • 14 May 2019 - 27 May 2019 (15:00 CEST): Period in which shareholders can indicate their choice

  • As from 3 June 2019:  Delivery of shares or cash payment

Shareholders are requested to indicate their choice within the defined period, through their bank or broker, to ABN AMRO Bank N.V. (“ABN AMRO”). Shareholders registered in the Company’s shareholder register will be separately informed.

Payment of the dividend on the ordinary shares and delivery of ordinary shares, with settlement of fractions in cash, if required, will take place as from 3 June 2019 based on the number of dividend rights delivered.
