Distribution of dividends and extraordinary dividend
Notice is hereby given that at the Ordinary Meeting of Stockholders held on April 24, 2015, the distribution of dividends in the amount of Euro 0.72 for each ordinary share (and American Depositary Receipt (“ADR”)) was approved. Dividends will be paid out of the Company’s 2014 net income, after setting aside the amount required to be allocated to the legal reserve.
The distribution of an additional extraordinary dividend in the amount of Euro 0.72 for each ordinary share (and ADR) was also approved. The extraordinary dividend will also be paid, in part, out of the balance of the Company’s 2014 net income and in part out of the extraordinary reserve.
As a result, the total dividend amount of Euro 1.44 per ordinary share (and ADR) will be distributed to holders.
According to the Borsa Italiana calendar, dividends and the extraordinary dividend on ordinary shares will be payable on May 20, 2015, with an ex dividend date of May 18, 2015 and a record date of May 19, 2015.
Regarding the ADRs listed on the New York Stock Exchange, the record date will be May 19, 2015, 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 May 28, 2015. The dividend amount in U.S. dollars will be determined based on the Euro/U.S. dollar exchange rate as of May 20, 2015.
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 19, 2015, having purchased ADRs before May 14, 2015, and who, therefore, will have the right to receive dividends, may contact Deutsche Bank S.p.A.
