ASMI CONFIRMS PAYMENT DATE FOR EXTRAORDINARY DISTRIBUTION

Almere, The Netherlands
23 July, 2013  

ASM International N.V. (NASDAQ: ASMI and NYSE Euronext Exchange in Amsterdam: ASM) confirms July 31, 2013 as the payment date for the extraordinary distribution of
4.25 per common share. 

At the 2013 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, the proposed extraordinary distribution of € 4.25 per common share by way of repayment of capital was adopted. The resolution to reduce the capital of the Company can only be effected following a statutory period under Dutch law of two months for opposition by creditors of the Company. This period has lapsed and no opposition by creditors has been made. As a result, the extraordinary distribution could now be effected.

The Company therefore confirms the following relevant dates for the payment of the extraordinary distribution.

  •  Ex-capital distribution date: July 25, 2013  
  •  Record date: July 29, 2013   
  • Payment date: July 31, 2013 

The conversion rate for the US listed shares will be $ 1.3166, which results in an extraordinary distribution of $ 5.596 per common share.
