“Agenda of the 2015 dividend”

Bezons, April 4th 2016

During its meeting held on February 23, 2016, the Board of Directors decided to propose at the next Annual General Meeting of Shareholders a dividend in 2016 on the 2015 results of € 1.10 per share, up +38% compared to prior year.


The Board of directors, during its meeting held on March 23, 2016, decided to call the Annual General Meeting of shareholders on May 26, 2016 at the registered offices, at 2:30 pm and to propose to the shareholders to opt for the payment of the dividend either in cash or in new shares of the Company.


Subject to the Annual General Meeting's approval, the ex-dividend date would be June 2, 2016 and the dividend would be paid on June 24, 2016. Shareholders would opt for the payment of the dividend in new shares[1] from June 2, 2016 through and including June 15, 2016 by sending their request to the financial intermediaries that are authorized to pay said dividend or, for shareholders listed in the issuer-registered accounts held by the Company, to its authorized representative (Société Générale). After June 15, 2016, the dividend would only be paid in cash.


The new shares, if the option for the payment of the dividend in new shares is exercised, would be issued with a 5% discount, i.e. at a price equal to 95% of the average opening prices on the regulated stock market of Euronext Paris, over the twenty trading sessions preceding May 26, 2016, date of the General Meeting, less the amount of the dividend and rounded up to the next highest euro cent.
