Dividends on A Shares will be paid, by default, in euro at the rate of €0.4172 per A Share. Holders of A Shares who have validly submitted pounds sterling currency elections by June 6, 2016 will be entitled to a dividend of 32.98.p per A Share.

Dividends on B Shares will be paid, by default, in pounds sterling at the rate of 32.98p per B Share. Holders of B Shares who have validly submitted euro currency elections by June 6, 2016 will be entitled to a dividend of €0.4172 per B Share.

Taxation – cash dividend

Cash dividends on A Shares will be subject to the deduction of Dutch dividend withholding tax at the rate of 15%, which may be reduced in certain circumstances. Based on a policy statement issued by the Dutch Ministry of Finance on April 29, 2016, and depending on their particular circumstances, non-Dutch individual shareholders may be entitled to a full or partial refund of Dutch dividend withholding tax.

Furthermore, in April 2016, there were changes to the UK taxation of dividends. The dividend tax credit has been abolished, and a new tax free dividend allowance of £5,000 introduced. Dividend income in excess of the allowance will be taxable at the following rates: 7.5% within the basic rate band; 32.5% within the higher rate band; and 38.1% on dividend income taxable at the additional rate.

If you are uncertain as to the tax treatment of any dividends you should consult your own tax advisor.
