The Group is pursuing its commitment to paying out at least 80% of attributable net profit in dividends.

At their Annual Meeting held on May 14, 2019, Edenred shareholders approved the payment of a 2018 dividend of €0.86 per share, with the option of reinvesting 100% of their dividend in new shares. This means that shareholders will receive 100% of the dividend in cash or 100% in new Edenred common shares, at the shareholder’s option. The shares created on reinvestment of the dividend will be issued at a price of €36.58, corresponding to 90% of the average of the opening prices quoted for Edenred shares over the twenty trading days on the Euronext Paris preceding the Annual Shareholders Meeting, less the amount of the dividend and rounded up to the nearest euro cent. 

Dividend payment timeline

  • Ex-dividend date: May 20, 2019.
  • Record date: May 21, 2019.
  • Period for exercising the dividend reinvestment option: from May 22, 2019 to the close of business on June 5, 2019. Shareholders that do not exercise their reinvestment option by June 5, 2019 included, will receive their total dividend in cash.
  • Payment date: June 11, 2019 for both payment methods.

Certain legal restrictions may apply to the reinvestment option for non-resident shareholders. Non-residents of France should enquire about the laws and rules applicable in their country of residence.

This option does not constitute an offer or a solicitation to subscribe to or purchase securities in the United States within the meaning of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, or in any other country where such transaction would be contrary to the applicable laws and regulations. The dividend reinvestment option is not available in certain countries, such as those where such an option would require registration with, or authorization from, the local securities regulator. Shareholders residing outside France should inquire about and comply with any local restrictions.
