Our loyalty program
Because we believe that we should forge a long-term relationship with our shareholders, we have implemented a loyalty program in the form of an increase in the dividend.
A loyalty bonus granted to shareholders holding registered shares
The loyalty bonus is reserved for shareholders that have been registered for an uninterrupted period of two years or more starting from 1 January 2014. It takes the form of a 10% increase in the dividend payable, rounded down to the next cent. This bonus shall also apply if a dividend is paid in shares: you will receive a larger dividend that you may choose to reinvest in shares under the option that is provided to you in such cases.
It is available both to holders of “direct” and “administered” registered shares. However, shareholders who decide to retain bearer shares shall not be eligible for this bonus.
To find out more about direct registration and its benefits, see our dedicated section.
The 2016 dividend amounted €0.60. The shares eligible for the bonus dividend have therefore received a €0.66 dividend.
To benefit from this loyalty bonus, shareholders must be able to demonstrate direct or administered registration for at least two years, as at year-end, 31 December.
Note: the number of each shareholder’s shares that are eligible for the loyalty bonus may not exceed 0.5% of the capital.
Identification of the shares eligible for the bonus dividend
Since the beginning of 2014, specific ISIN codes have been used to identify shares eligible for the increased dividend, for each financial year. These special identification codes do not affect the ISIN code for the Albioma share (FR0000060402), which will remain the only identification code visible on Euronext Paris that can be used when trading on this market.
These are the ISIN codes relative to the loyalty bonus which are currently used:
- Loyalty bonus code: FR0012332864
- 2020 loyalty bonus code: FR0013295300
- 2021 loyalty bonus code: FR0013374501
