This is the amount in dividend per share that was proposed by the Board of Directors and approved at the recent Annual General Meeting held on May 5.
The ex-dividend date was May 11 (the opening price on this day is reduced by the amount of the dividend), and payment was made on May 13. There is no need for you to do anything. Your bank account has already been or will be credited in the coming days, depending on the processing times of your financial institution.
An additional 10% in dividends
Shareholders with shares eligible for the loyalty bonus were paid dividends with an extra 10%, or 2.97 euros per share.
Here is a brief explanation from Patrick Renard, Director of Shareholder Services:
Reinvesting your dividends in shares allows you to grow your portfolio without additional personal investment.
Please be aware that your dividends are not automatically reinvested; you need to place a stock market order to carry out this operation.
With three simple options to choose from, nothing could be easier:
Log in to your personal online Account.
Click on "MY ORDERS." You will see a detailed view of your portfolio. To place an order to purchase, click on the green "PURCHASE" button and follow the instructions.
Check, then confirm. Your order will be placed on the market. You will then receive a confirmation email.
Logging in to your personal online Account
If you have already logged in to your personal online Account, use your regular email address and access code. If you have not logged in before, use the shareholder ID on the front of your account documents and follow the instructions.
