Dividend financial year 2015
The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders of 26 April 2016 has decided to set the dividend for the financial year 2015 as follows:
- € 0.05 per priority share with a nominal value of € 1.00;
- € 1.10 per (depositary receipt of an) ordinary share with a nominal value of € 0.25.
Shareholders, or alternatively holders of depository receipts, may opt to have the dividend paid in full in cash (subject to withholding of the dividend tax owed) or as shares or depository receipts of shares. The stock dividend, in the form of shares or depository receipts of shares, will be determined after expiry of the option period on the basis of the average share price during the last five days of trading of the option period, which will end on 17 May 2016. No trade in dividend rights will take place on Euronext in Amsterdam (“Euronext”). The new (depositary receipts of) ordinary shares with a nominal value of € 0.25 are fully authorised for the dividend for the financial year 2016 and subsequent years.
The following timetable applies to the dividend for 2015.

Shareholders of (depositary receipts of) ordinary shares should communicate their option to ABN AMRO Bank NV ('ABN AMRO') in the afore¬mentioned option period via their bank or broker. The dividend rights relating to your option must be delivered directly to ABN AMRO at the latest by 15:00 hours CEST on 17 May 2016 in favour of account 28001/106.
