Paris, May 23, 2013
Lagardère SCA confirms the dates that were provided on April 29, 2013, i.e. the ex-coupon date for the interim dividend of €9 will be May 28, 2013, with a payment date of May 31, 2013, in accordance with a Managing Partners decision on May 21, 2013.
This interim dividend is associated with the Lagardère group’s sale of its 7.4% stake in EADS on April 12, 2013. It represents the exceptional portion of the dividend to be submitted by the Managing Partners for approval at the General Meeting that will be held in 2014 to approve the 2013 financial statements.
Lagardère reiterates that, as is the case with all dividends, this ex-coupon payment should result in an adjustment of the Lagardère share price in the amount of €9 on the morning of May 28, 2013, in compliance with the market rules.
In return, shareholders will receive a cash payment of €9 per share.
