Proposal for profit allocation

With due observance of Dutch law and the Articles of Association, it is proposed that net income of €554 million is carried to the other reserves. Furthermore, with due observance of article 43, paragraph 7, it is proposed that dividend on priority shares of €1,152 and on common shares of €416 million (to be increased by dividend on shares issued in 2017 before the ex-dividend date and decreased by dividend on shares acquired through the share buyback program in 2017 before the ex-dividend date) will be distributed. Following the acceptance of this proposal, the holders of common shares will receive a dividend of €1.65 per share, of which €0.37 was paid earlier as an interim dividend. The final dividend of €1.28 per share (which under the conditions to be published by the company and at the shareholders’ election will be paid either in cash or in stock) will be made available from May 24, 2017.
