Dividend 2010

 

In 2011, a dividend of EUR 0.75 per common share was paid in cash or shares, at the option of the shareholder. Approximately 63% elected for a share dividend resulting in the issuance of 22,896,661 new common shares, leading to a 2.4% dilution. The remainder of the dividend was paid in cash (EUR 259 million) against the net income of the Company. Further details regarding the dividend of 2010 can be found through the links below.

At Philips we are committed to a stable dividend policy with a 40% to 50% pay-out of continuing net income, which was revised in 2007 from an average annual pay-out ratio of 25% to 35%, and explained at the 2007 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders. An overview of dividend paid in previous years can be found in our online Annual Report.
