Increased dividends: a bonus for loyalty!

Lafarge shares registered (pure or managed) for at least two years on December 31st have benefited, since 1999, from a 10% increase in the dividend. The two year period providing entitlement to this dividend increase runs from January 1st of the year following the year in which the shares are registered. The number of shares eligible for this increase may not exceed 0.5% of the corporate capital, for a single shareholder, on the date the corporate accounts are closed for the financial year in question. The increased dividend is sometimes called a "loyalty bonus".
