Edenred’s Board of Directors decided on February 22, 2017 to recommend to the Annual Shareholders Meeting of May 4 setting the 2016 dividend at €0.62 per share. Subject to this recommendation being approved at the Meeting, Edenred shareholders will receive:
- 50% of the dividend in cash, i.e. €0.31 per share, and
- 50% of the dividend in cash or new Edenred common shares, at the shareholder’s option. The new shares will be issued at a price corresponding to 90% of the average of the opening prices quoted for Edenred shares over the twenty trading days preceding the Annual Shareholders Meeting, i.e. between April 3 and May 3, 2017, less the net dividend, rounded up to the nearest euro cent.
