The DSM Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on 3 May 2013 passed a resolution
to declare a dividend for 2012 of €1.50 per ordinary share of €1.50 par value.
An interim dividend of €0.48 per ordinary share having been paid on 30 August
2012, the final dividend for 2012 will amount to €1.02 per ordinary share. With
the passing of the resolution by the AGM, and in line with DSM's policy to
provide a stable and preferably rising dividend, 2012 marks the third
consecutive year DSM's dividend has been increased.

This final dividend of €1.02 will be paid out in cash or in the form of ordinary
shares at the option of the shareholder. Dividend in cash will be paid after
deduction of 15% Dutch dividend withholding tax. The 
ex-dividend date on NYSE Euronext will be 7 May 2013 and the record date will be 9 May 2013. Shareholders have from 10 May until 24 May 2013 (3.00 pm CET) to indicate their choice. On 27 May 2013 after the close of trading on NYSE Euronext the number of dividend rights of ordinary shares entitling the holder to one ordinary share will be determined. This exchange ratio will be based on the volume weighted average price of all ordinary shares in DSM traded at NYSE Euronext on  20 May 2013 up to and including 24 May 2013. The value of the stock dividend will be virtually equal to the value of the cash dividend. The ordinary shares that constitute the stock dividend are entitled to any dividend for the financial year 2013 and to the dividends for subsequent financial years. Stock dividend rights will not be traded on NYSE Euronext.
