In the context of the Group’s action alongside people at work amid the Covid-19 epidemic, Edenred’s Board of Directors decided at a special meeting on April 6, 2020, to propose paying a dividend of €0.70 per share for 2019, representing a 20% reduction compared with the amount initially announced. This decision was submitted to shareholders for approval at the Annual Shareholders Meeting on May 7, 2020, held behind closed doors.
At the Annual Meeting on May 7, 2020, Edenred shareholders approved the payment of a 2019 dividend of €0.70 per share, with the option of reinvesting 100% of the dividend in new shares.
The option of reinvesting the dividend in shares was available from May 15 to May 29, 2020. At the end of the option period, almost 65% of rights were exercised in favor of the dividend payment in shares. This led to the issuance of 3,378,494 new shares of Edenred common stock, representing 1.39% of the share capital, which will be settled and begin trading on the Euronext Paris stock market on June 5, 2020.
