Dividend election procedure

Each Fortis share represents one share in each of the two Fortis parent companies, i.e. Fortis N.V. and Fortis SA/NV. Shareholders can therefore decide from which parent company they wish to receive their dividend. They can choose Fortis N.V. and receive their dividend from the Dutch source, or Fortis SA/NV and receive their dividend from the Belgian source. Shareholders must make their choice known during the dividend election period.
