The main principle underlying the Boskalis dividend policy is to distribute 40% to 50% of the net result from ordinary operations as dividend. In doing so, Boskalis aims to achieve a stable development of the dividend to its shareholders. The choice of dividend form (cash or shares or a combination of the two) takes into account the company’s desired balance sheet ratios and the interests and wishes of its shareholders.

On 10 May 2016 the dividend of Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. for the financial year 2015 has been determined at EUR 1.60 per ordinary share. This dividend shall be distributed in the form of ordinary shares, unless a shareholder opts to receive the dividend payment in the form of cash.

The revised information document dated 10 May describes the complete dividend arrangements.

The relevant option period commenced on 16 May 2015 and closed on 27 May 2016. The dividend will be payable from 3 June 2016.
