Interim dividend for the financial year 2017

The interim dividend for the financial year 2017 is EUR 0.56 per ordinary share with a nominal value of EUR 2.00 each. The distribution will be payable either wholly in cash or in new ordinary shares out of the share premium reserve, at the option of the shareholder. A maximum of 40% of the total dividend amount will be available for stock dividend. Dividend in cash will be paid through deduction of 15% Dutch dividend withholding tax. If more than 40% of the total dividend is requested by the shareholders to be paid out in shares, those shareholders who have chosen to receive their dividend in shares will receive their stock dividend on a pro rata basis, the remainder being paid out in cash after deducting the above mentioned 15% Dutch dividend withholding tax.

Shareholders will be given the opportunity until November 15, 2017 (3:00 p.m. CET) to indicate their choice. On November 16, 2017 after the close of trading on Euronext Amsterdam, the number of share dividend entitlements of each ordinary share will be determined (the “Exchange Ratio”). This Exchange Ratio is based on the volume weighted average price of all traded ordinary shares in Akzo Nobel N.V. on Euronext Amsterdam during the period from November 9, 2017 up to and including November 15, 2017. After determination, the Exchange Ratio will be published on November 16, 2017. The value of the stock dividend will be approximately equal to the value of the cash dividend.
