Lagardère SCA has decided to pay an interim dividend of €9 per share. The ex-coupon date for this exceptional dividend will be May 28, with a payment date of May 31, 2013.

As required by law, this payment will be based on the interim parent company financial statements of Lagardère SCA to be approved by the Managing Partners, and reflecting the gain on the disposal of the EADS shares.
