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.
For the 2017 financial year, a total amount of €1.75 per share will be proposed to the 23 May 2018 AGM. If it is approved, the dividend to be paid on 1st June 2018 will amount to €1.30 per share, after deducting the interim dividend of €0.45 per share paid in December 2017.
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.
