At the Ordinary General Meeting held on May 23, 2013, the shareholders approved the payment of a gross dividend of €1.40 per share, compared to €1.76 the previous year. After deduction of 25% Belgian withholding tax, this results in a net dividend of €1.05 per share (€1.32 the prior year).

The net dividend of €1.05 per share is payable to owners of ordinary shares against coupon no. 51. The shares are trading ex-coupon as of May 28, 2013. The payment is made at the registered office of the Company (rue Osseghemstraat 53, 1080 Brussels, Belgium) as well as all Belgian financial institutions.

For shares held through a share account, the bank or broker automatically handles the dividend payment. The payment of the dividend to the ADR holders is made through Citibank. (see ADR Information)
