GROUPE STERIA : Option for payment in shares for the 2011 fiscal year dividend
The Annual General Meeting of Groupe Steria SCA's shareholders on May 15, 2012 approved the 2011 fiscal year dividend payment, i.e. 0.35 euro per share, as well as the possibility offered to shareholders to opt to receive this dividend in new company shares.
The price of the shares to be attributed as payment of the dividend is equal to 90% of the average price quoted on Paris Euronext during the twenty trading sessions prior to the date of the meeting, reduced by the net amount of the dividend and rounded up to the nearest cent. This price comes to 13.10 euros. The ex-dividend date is June 4, 2012.
These new shares will carry dividend right from January 1, 2012 and rank pari passu with existing shares.
Each shareholder may, for a period beginning on June 4, 2012 until June 22, 2012 (inclusive), opt for a payment in shares by applying to the intermediaries entitled to pay the aforementioned dividend.
This option concerns the totality of the dividend to be distributed, i.e. 0.35 euro per share.
If the amount of the reinvested dividend does not correspond to a whole number of shares, the shareholder will obtain either:the number of shares immediately inferior completed by the outstanding balance in cash ; the number of shares immediately superior by paying the difference in cash the day on which the option is exercised
If the shareholder has not requested a payment in shares by June 22, 2012 at the latest, he/she will receive the amount of his/her dividend in cash.
Payment of the dividend, either in cash or securities, will be made from July 5, 2012 onwards.
The option concerning the payment of dividends described above is not available to shareholders residing in any country where such option would require registration or obtaining a permit from local securities regulation. Orders from these countries will not be accepted. Shareholders residing outside France should inform themselves of the conditions and consequences relating to such option and that may apply under local law and they are particularly recommended to consult their tax advisors. When deciding whether to receive a dividend in shares, shareholders should consider the risks associated with investing in shares of the company.
