- Approval of the Company's 2011 accounts reported in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS); and
- The distribution of a cash dividend of US$0.40 per share, to be paid in four equal quarterly installments, in June, August and December 2012 (29-Nov-2012 in Europe) and February 2013 to shareholders of record in the month of each quarterly payment.

*Since the Annual General Meeting was held on May 30, 2012, the Company is unable to both set the ex-dividend date for, and to pay, the first dividend installment in May according to the usual schedule, and has therefore resolved, in coordination with the stock exchange and with a view to ensuring the appropriate functioning of the market for its shares from a substantive standpoint, to pay such installment on June 7, 2012 with an ex-dividend date on June 4, 2012. Other than indicated in the table, the ex-dividend and payment dates for the subsequent installments are consistent with the usual schedule.
**February 18, 2013 is not a trading day on the New York Stock Exchange.
