The dividend for the financial year 2012 was set at EUR 2.00 per (certificate of a) share.

If no choice for cash has been 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 dividend equates to a pay-out ratio of 56% of the net result. The ex-dividend date is Friday 10 May 2013. The record date for dividend entitlement is Tuesday 14 May 2013 (after trading hours).
Holders of shares registered in the shareholders’ register of Fugro have until 28 May 2013 (3pm CET) to make their dividend preference known.

The exchange ratio of the dividend in (certificates of) shares will be determined on Monday 3 June 2013 before trading hours, based on the volume weighted average price of certificates of shares Fugro N.V. traded on NYSE Euronext in Amsterdam on 29, 30 and 31 May 2013. To arrive at a whole number a deviation of a maximum of 5% of the calculated value may be applied.
