DIVIDEND

ASMI aims to pay a sustainable annual dividend. The proposed dividend for 2018 will mark the eighth consecutive year that we have paid a dividend. In 2012, 2013 and 2014, we paid a dividend of €0.50 per common share. In 2015 we paid a dividend of €0.60 per common share and in 2016 and 2017 we paid a dividend of €0.70 per common share. ASMI will propose to the forthcoming 2018 AGM, which will be held on May 28, 2018, to declare a dividend of €0.80 per common share.

In addition to the proposed dividend, ASMI announced on February 28, 2018, that it intends to propose to the 2018 AGM to distribute €4.00 per common share free of any withholding tax. To this end it is proposed that the distribution is effected as a repayment of capital to the shareholders by way of a reduction of the par value of the common shares.
