DIVIDEND

Groupe SEB's dividend policy is informed by a long-term vision. The Group's objective is to ensure that shareholders receive correct remuneration for the capital entrusted to the company consistent with a long-term strategy aimed at reasonably and regularly increasing the dividend where results so permit and stabilizing it where economic and financial circumstances so require.

In addition, for all pure registered shares held over two consecutive financial years, the Group pays out a loyalty bonus (see the graph and table below) equal to 10% of the dividend (rounded down to an even hundredth where applicable). For a given shareholder, the loyalty bonus does not apply to a number of shares exceeding 0.5% of the share capital. Dividends lapse five years after they are initially paid out, at which point unclaimed dividends are paid to the state.
