2012 dividend payment procedures
Paris, 12 February 2013
The Board of Directors of Societe Generale, which met on 12 February, 2013, has
decided to propose the distribution of a dividend of EUR 0.45 per share to the
Annual General Meeting, and to offer shareholders the possibility of opting for
a dividend payment in new shares.
Subject to a favourable vote by the Annual General Meeting on 22 May, 2013:
- Dividend detachment will take place on 29 May, 2013.
- The offer period for the dividend payment in shares will extend from 29 May
to12 June, 2013 included. After that date or in the
event of failure to exercise
the option, the dividend will be paid exclusively in cash.
- The issue price of new shares will be equal to 90% of the amount resulting
from the calculation of the average of initial quoted prices in the twenty
trading sessions preceding the date of the distribution decision minus the
dividend amount and rounded up to the nearest euro cent.
- If the amount of the dividends for which the option is exercised does not
correspond to a whole number of shares, the shareholder may decide to receive
the whole number of shares immediately above by paying, on the day the option is
exercised, the difference in cash, or to receive the whole number of shares
immediately below plus a balancing cash adjustment. Shares issued by way of a
dividend payment will incur interest from 1 January, 2013.
- The dividend will be paid as from 24 June, 2013.
