Dividend policy

Source: company website, February 2019

From 2018 onwards, the dividend pay-out ratio has been set at 50% of sustainable profit, excluding exceptional items that significantly distort profitability. Additional distributions will be considered when capital is within or above the target range and will be subject to other circumstances, including regulatory and commercial considerations. The combined distribution will amount to at least 50% of sustainable profit. 

Dividend payments per depositary receipt and/or share are subject to 15% Dutch dividend withholding tax. The full year dividend needs to be approved by the shareholders at the Annual General Meeting.
