Dividends are paid annually at the time and places defined by the General Meeting or, failing that, by the Board of Directors within a maximum period of 9 months from the end of the fiscal year. The dividend amount paid annually shall be determined by the Shareholders General Meeting.
During its meeting of February 28, 2013, the Supervisory Board approved the establishment of a dividend policy balanced with the Action 2016 strategic action plan. Thus, beginning with the 2014 dividend, which is based on the 2013 financial statements, the dividend distribution rate will be determined within the limit of 25% of the net income attributable to owners of the parent as that appears in the consolidated financial statements.

What was the amount of the latest dividend and when was it paid?

In line with the strategy of strengthening AREVA’s shareholders’ equity, the Supervisory Board of AREVA did not propose to the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders the payment of a dividend for 2010.
How do I collect my dividend?
The dividend will be paid to you automatically, as long as you own at least one AREVA share on the eve of the payment date.
Are dividends subject to taxation ?
If you are an U.S. shareholder residing outside of France, we suggest you consult with your broker or financial advisor for additional assistance.
Dividends paid to French taxpayers are included in their taxable income calculation and are subject to social contributions. Two options are available for the taxation of dividends received.
To include dividends in their income tax calculations
This is the most popular choice.
This option entitles French tax residents to two successive deductions:
- an unlimited annual allowance of 40%,
- a fixed annual amount of €3.050 for a couple and €1.525 for a single individual.
The PLF (in French: Prélèvement Libératoire Forfaitaire) withholding tax
In this case, deductions mentioned above are not applicable. The PLF withholding tax is set at 19% from January 1st, 2011 and applies to all dividends received during the year without any deduction.
You have to indicate this choice to your bookrunners.
Before confirming your choice, make sure that it is advantageous when applied to your personal situation.
In both cases, social contributions of 12.3% are withheld directly (8.2% for CSG, 0.5% for CRDS, 2.2% for social contribution and 1.4% for RSA and additional social contribution).
The 2011 Finance Law
The 2011 Finance Law modified the terms for the taxation of dividends:
- Revocation of the 50% dividend tax credit, applicable beginning with 2010 taxable income, even for securities held in a PEA (Plan d’Epargne en Actions).
- Increase in the PLF withholding tax rate to 19% (vs 18% in 2010).
- Increase in social contribution to 12.3% (vs 12.1% in 2010).
What share price should I report if I am subject to the French wealth tax?
If you are subject to the French wealth tax, you may report:
- either the latest known share price on December 31,
- or the average share price for the last 30 trading days of the year.
