ASM International N.V. (Euronext Amsterdam: ASM) confirms August 10, 2018 as the payment date for the extraordinary distribution of 4.00 per common share. 

At the 2018 Annual General Meeting of ASM International N.V. ("ASMI"), the proposed extraordinary distribution of €4.00 per common share by way of repayment of capital was approved. The resolution to reduce the capital can only be effected following a statutory period under Dutch law of two months for opposition by creditors. This period has lapsed and no opposition by creditors has been made. ASMI will therefore proceed with the payment of the extraordinary distribution and confirms the following dates:

  • Ex-date extraordinary distribution: August 7, 2018
  • Record date: August 8, 2018
  • Payment date: August 10, 2018

ASMI further announces that the withdrawal of 6 million treasury shares has become effective and administered as of August 1, 2018.
