The interim dividend of the amount of euro 0.15 per share is subject to 15% withholding tax, according to the provisions of Law 4172/2013, as amended by Law 4387/2016 and currently in force, therefore, the net payable to shareholders amounts to euro 0.1275 per share.

Interim dividend payment (deducting applicable taxes and charges in accordance with the relevant law provisions) will take place on 11.12.2017.

The payment of the interim dividend will be conducted through National Bank of Greece S.A., as follows:

  1. Through the Dematerialized Securities System (DSS/SAT) operators, to beneficiary shareholders that have authorized their operators to receive payment.
  2. By deposit, at their International Bank Account Number (IBAN), at which the beneficiary shareholder has declared that he wishes to receive cash distributions, in accordance with article 13 of the Regulation on the operation of the Dematerialized Securities System (DSS), and decision number 6 of the ATHEXCSD BoD, as in force, for those beneficiary shareholders that do not wish to collect through their operators. This only concerns beneficiary shareholders that have indicated a National Bank of Greece IBAN.
  3. Starting from 11.12.2017 through the retail network of the National Bank of Greece for all other beneficiary shareholders.

In order to collect the interim dividend through the paying bank’s retail network, beneficiary shareholders must produce the following:
