Rubis: option for the payment of the 2014 dividend in shares


Paris, June 5, 2015

Rubis' Ordinary and Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting held on June 5, 2015 approved the payment of a dividend of €2.05 per share and has offered each shareholder the option of payment in cash or in new Company shares.

The price of these new shares to be issued in payment of the dividend has been set at €53.74, equal to 90% of the average opening price quoted on Euronext Paris during the 20 trading days preceding the date of the Shareholders' Meeting, less the net amount of the dividend (€2.05), rounded up to the closest euro cent.

The maximum total number of new shares liable to be issued is 1,483,522, representing approximately 3.81% of the share capital and voting rights on the date of the Shareholders' Meeting.

The shares issued as payment of the dividend will carry full rights from January 1, 2015 and will be fully fungible with existing shares. They will be the subject of an application for admission to trading on Euronext Paris under the same code as the existing shares, at their time of issue.

Shareholders wishing to opt for payment of the dividend in shares may make a request to the intermediaries authorized to pay said dividend between June 8, 2015 (ex-dividend date) and June 26, 2015 inclusive. Shareholders who have not exercised their right to choose once this deadline has expired may only receive the dividends that are due to them in cash. The payment of the cash dividend will take place on July 8, 2015, as will the issue of shares corresponding to the payment of the dividend in shares.

The shareholder's choice is applicable to the whole amount of the dividend due.

If the amount of the dividend due does not correspond to a whole number of shares, shareholders must stipulate, when stating their wish to receive their payment in shares, whether they wish to receive:

  • either the number of shares immediately below this plus a cash payment;
  • or the number of shares immediately above this, settling the difference in cash on the same date.
