2020 dividend recommended to the General Meeting on May 11, 2021 – Timeline and process

Edenred’s Board of Directors decided on March 1, 2021 to recommend to the General Meeting of May 11, 2021 setting the 2020 dividend at €0.75 per share. Subject to this recommendation being approved at the General Meeting, Edenred shareholders will receive 100% of the dividend in cash or 100% in 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 on Euronext Paris over the twenty trading days preceding the date of the General Meeting (i.e. between April 13 and May 10, 2021) less the net dividend, rounded up to the nearest euro cent.

Dividend payment timeline

  • Ex-dividend date: May 14, 2021.
  • Record date: May 17, 2021.
  • Period for exercising the dividend reinvestment option: from May 18, 2021 to the close of business on June 2, 2021.
