The Annual General Shareholder’s Meeting of Thales took place behind closed doors on 6 May 2021 at its Head Office, chaired by Patrice Caine, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer. It has approved the distribution of a dividend of €1.76 per share (including an interim dividend of €0.40 paid in December 2020), corresponding to a pay-out ratio of 40% on the 2020 adjusted net income per share.
The ex-dividend date was on 18 May 2021 and the interim dividend was paid on 20 May 2021.
Dividends are paid to the holder of the share according to law and the articles of association. The Company uses the Euroclear direct payment procedure, which allows each shareholder to receive the dividend on the payment date.
In accordance with new article 158-3-2 of the French tax code, the dividend qualifies for the 40% reduction applicable to individual shareholders resident in France for tax purposes. This reduction is not applicable to other shareholders.
