PRESS RELEASE

 

 

 

Result of the option for the payment in shares of the dividend

for fiscal year 2016

 

 

 

(Saint-Cloud, June 16, 2017) - The combined ordinary and extraordinary General Meeting of DASSAULT AVIATION (hereinafter the "Company") of May 18, 2017 has decided to distribute a dividend of EUR 12.10 per share for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, and to offer the shareholders the option to receive the dividend either in cash or in new ordinary Company's shares. The issuance price of the new shares has been set at EUR 1 255.20, corresponding to the average of the last prices listed on the Euronext Paris regulated market during the twenty trading sessions preceding the day of the General Meeting, less the amount of the dividend and rounded up to the nearest eurocent.

 

 

This day, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, acting in virtue of a sub delegation conferred by the Board of Directors, has recorded, due to the option for the payment of the dividend in shares by some shareholders, the creation of 61 136 new ordinary DASSAULT AVIATION's shares with a nominal value of EUR 8 each, representing 0.74% of the share capital before the issuance of the new shares and 0.46% of the exercisable voting rights calculated on the basis of the share capital and voting rights on May 31, 2017.

 

 

Therefore, the share capital of the Company shall be set at 66 495 368 euros. The creation of the new shares and the consequential increase of the share capital will occur on June 21, 2017, which is the date on which the payment of the dividend shall take place. The new shares will be delivered and listed on Euronext Paris on the same day.

 

 

They will be of the same category and carry the same rights as the ordinary shares of the Company which are already listed on the regulated market of Euronext Paris (Compartiment A - ISIN Code FR0000121725).

 

 

Shareholders who have not chosen payment of dividends in shares before the end of the option period, or who have chosen only partial payment, will receive the dividend in cash for the portion for which payment in shares was not chosen on June 21, 2017.

 

 

 

Further this operation, the change in capital and voting rights will be as follows:
