This page provides answers to frequently asked questions.

Q. I have joined the optional stock dividend program. How many shares will I receive concerning the final dividend 2016?

A. The formula used for calculating the number of Shares to be received by a Participating Shareholder for each dividend declared will be: Number of shares held at dividend record date / exchange ratio. The exchange ratio is calculated using the volume weighted average price between 11 May 2017 and including 17 May 2017 divided by the gross dividend amount per share. This will amount to 1 new ordinary share for every 59.0293 existing ordinary shares, noting that a maximum of 40% of the total dividend amount will be available for stock dividend. Akzo Nobel N.V. announces that shareholders wish to receive a distribution in stock for 42.78% of the total dividend. Therefore, the shareholders who have opted for a distribution in stock will receive stock dividend on a pro-rata (0.935016363 = 40/42.78 part) basis, with the remainder being paid out in cash (less 15% dividend withholding tax).

No additional premium is considered for a stock dividend. No fractional entitlements will be issued to persons, but settled for cash. In general, banks or financial institutes will round down fractional entitlements (and remit cash in lieu of fractional entitlements) or round up fractional entitlements (subject to receipt of the requisite funds from the clients), in each case in accordance with the custodial arrangements banks or financial institutions are having with you.
