PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
The Combined General Meeting of the shareholders in Rémy Cointreau (Paris:RCO), chaired by M. François Hériard Dubreuil, was held on 29 July 2015 in Paris, France.
The Meeting approved the financial statements for the 2014/15 financial year and set the overall dividend at €1.53 per share.
The Meeting decided to grant every shareholder the option of receiving payment of the dividend in cash or in shares for the entire dividend paid.
The dividend coupon will be detached on 5 August 2015 and the dividend will be payable from 1 October 2015.
Shareholders wishing to opt for the payment of the dividend in shares will have the period from 5 August 2015 to 16 September 2015, inclusive, to submit a request to their financial intermediary. All shareholders who do not exercise their option by 16 September 2015 by 17:00 at the latest, will only receive their dividend in cash, from 1 October 2015.
The issue price of the new share will be €58.20.
If a shareholder’s net dividend entitlement does not correspond to an exact number of shares, the shareholder may obtain the immediately higher number of shares by paying, on the day they exercise their option, the difference in cash or receive the immediate lower number of shares, together with the balance in cash.
The new shares will be subject to the provisions of the law and the bylaws and will be effective from 1 April 2015, the start of the current financial year. They will be delivered in nominative or bearer form, at the option of the shareholder.
Shareholders will receive from the financial intermediary where their shares are recorded, an instruction request which they must complete, sign and return.
A request will be made to admit the new shares to trading on the Euronext Stock Exchange, Paris.
