Shareholders and holders of certificates of shares were able to choose between payment of the dividend entirely in cash or in (certificates of) shares. If no choice for cash was made on 28 May 2013 (at 3pm CET), the dividend will be paid in (certificates of) shares with any remaining fraction being settled in cash.
The number of dividend rights that entitles to one new (certificate of a) share (the exchange ratio) has been set at 23. This exchange ratio is based on the volume weighted average price of the Fugro certificates of shares traded on NYSE Euronext Amsterdam on 29, 30 and 31 May 2013, being EUR 46.07. The value of the stock dividend is 0.16% higher than the cash dividend of EUR 2.00.
Around 50% of the holders of (certificates of) shares elected for stock dividend resulting in the issue of approximately 1.7 million new (certificates of) shares.
The dividend will be paid (and the (certificates of) shares will be provided) as of 7 June 2013.
