BME’s pay-out in 2016 was 93%, in line with the previous years
BME will submit to the General Shareholders’ Meeting for approval the distribution of a gross €0.80 per share supplementary dividend, which, if approved, will be effective on 5 May.
Following the entry into force of the Reform of Clearing and Settlement in Spain, which concluded in October last year, the date on which the shareholders entitled to receive a dividend are determined will be 4 May (record-date) and the ex-date for the BME shares will be 3 May. Therefore the last day to buy a share in BME that includes to right to a dividend will be 2 May.
BME’s pay-out in 2016 came in at 93%, in line with the previous years, one of the highest ratios among listed companies and among its peers.
