Dividend policy & payments

ABN AMRO’s dividend policy

ABN AMRO’s envisaged annual dividend payout ratio is 45% of the annual reported net profit of 2016. ABN AMRO anticipates an increase in the dividend payout ratio to 50% in 2017 and beyond, while remaining well positioned to meet regulatory requirements.

Dividend payments per depositary receipt and/or share are subject to 15% Dutch dividend withholding tax. The full year dividend needs to be approved by the shareholders at the Annual General Meeting.

Dividend Reinvestment Plan

Holders of depositary receipts representing ordinary shares of ABN AMRO can choose to reinvest the (net) cash dividend via a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (”DRIP”) to buy additional depositary receipts in ABN AMRO. The DRIP is offered by ABN AMRO Corporate Broking. Access to the DRIP will be provided to the holders of depositary receipts through their bank or broker at the request of the depositary receipt holder.
