Final dividend reinvestment procedure, with the new shares immediately carrying
At the 2020 Annual General Meeting a resolution was passed to once again give
shareholders the option of reinvesting their final dividend for 2019
(corresponding to EUR0.20 per share), with the new shares offered at a discount
to the market price and immediately carrying dividend rights. Shareholders who
opt to reinvest their final dividend must notify their bank or broker between
May 6, 2020 (the start date of the exercise period for the dividend
reinvestment option) and May 19, 2020.
Shareholders will receive a reinvestment form by post describing the procedure
and indicating the number of shares their dividend amount entitles them to
purchase. The form will be sent either by their bank or broker, if they hold
their shares in bearer form or have registered them with said bank or broker,
or by BNP Paribas Securities Services, if their shares are registered directly
Once completed and signed, the form must be returned to the bank or broker in
charge of managing their shares before May 15, 2020.
If the amount of the reinvestable dividend does not correspond to a whole
number of shares, the shareholder concerned will receive the nearest lower
whole number of shares and the difference in cash.
The new ordinary Chargeurs shares issued for the purpose of the final dividend
reinvestment option will be delivered on May 26, 2020. They will carry dividend
rights immediately and will rank pari passu with the Company's existing shares
as from their issue date.
Up to 354,883 shares may be issued in connection with the final dividend
reinvestment option, representing a maximum 1.5% of Chargeurs' share capital as
of March 31, 2020.
Issue price of the new shares
In accordance with article L. 232-19 of the French Commercial Code, the issue
price of the new shares delivered as payment for the final dividend will be set
at 90% of the average of the opening prices quoted for Chargeurs' shares during
the twenty trading days preceding the date of the Annual General Meeting, less
the net amount of the final per-share dividend and rounded up to the nearest
euro cent, i.e. EUR12.77 per share after applying the 10% discount.
Procedure for receiving the final dividend in cash
Shareholders who do not exercise the dividend reinvestment option by May 19,
2020 will be paid their final dividend in cash on May 26, 2020.
