On March 22, 2017, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted an amendment to shorten from three to two business days the standard settlement cycle for most broker-dealer securities transactions, starting from September 5, 2017.

 

In consideration of the change which re-aligns the US settlement cycle to the European, the Company's schedule switches to a unique Ex-dividend date in the two markets.
