Dividend History

A 10% dividend increase for loyal shareholders

In 2011, the Annual General Meeting adopted the amendment to the articles of EDF with the implementation of a "loyalty bonus" of 10% for shareholders holding their shares in registered form (pure or administered) for at least 2 calendar years continuously.
  • Provision limited to 0.5% of the capital for a single shareholder, at the closing date of the previous financial year
  • The first "loyalty bonus" of 10% has been awarded in 2014 for the dividend distributed for the year 2013. The registration of shares in registered form (pure or administered) will have to be effective on 31 December 2015 at the latest to receive the loyalty bonus, which will be provided in respect of the financial year ended on 31 December 2017

Payment of dividends

The dividend is attached to a share.
As this is a cash payment, there is no specific procedure to follow; the dividend is credited by your financial intermediary straight into the bank account associated with your share account.
