Notice - Distribution of dividends
Notice is hereby given that at the Ordinary Meeting of Stockholders held on April 29, 2016, the distribution of dividends in the amount of Euro 0.89 for each ordinary share (and American Depositary Receipt (“ADR”)) was approved. Dividends will be paid out of the Company’s 2015 net income, after setting aside the amount required to be allocated to the legal reserve.
According to the Borsa Italiana calendar, dividends on ordinary shares will be payable on May 25, 2016, with an ex dividend date of May 23, 2016 and a record date of May 24, 2016.
Regarding the ADRs listed on the New York Stock Exchange, the record date will be May 24, 2016, and, according to Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, the depositary bank for the ADRs, the payment date for the dividend in U.S. dollars is expected to be June 2, 2016. The dividend amount in U.S. dollars will be determined based on the Euro/U.S. dollar exchange rate as of May 25, 2016.
ADR holders may contact Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas (Tel. 001-212-250-6612) for further information.
ADR holders who are Italian residents and deemed to be holders of ADRs listed on the New York Stock Exchange on May 24, 2016 having purchased ADRs before May 19, 2016, and who, therefore, will have the right to receive dividends, may contact Deutsche Bank S.p.A.
