- Dividend payment
Each book-entry security entitles the holder to the dividend of € 2.00 per share determined by STRABAG SE, FN 88983 h, Triglavstraße 9, 9500 Villach (“STRABAG”) for the 2021 financial year. Dividends are paid out without interest.
The designated paying agent is Raiffeisen Bank International AG, FN 122119m, Am Stadtpark 9, 1030 Wien (“paying agent”). The paying agent acts exclusively as an agent of STRABAG and accepts no obligations whatsoever towards the holders of the book-entry securities. No contractual or fiduciary relationship is established between the paying agent and the holders of these book-entry securities.
The paying agent will pay the dividend against reciprocal and simultaneous transfer of the book-entry securities to the custodian bank of the holder of the book-entry securities. The payment is also conditional upon the decision of the Management Board of STRABAG pursuant to item 2 (for MKAO Rasperia Trading Limited) to pay a dividend or the confirmation pursuant to item 3 (for all other shareholders).
Payment of the dividend will be made exclusively less 27.5 % capital gains tax by means of a credit entry at the custodian bank.
The dividend will be paid out by the paying agent on the condition that STRABAG has approved the confirmations issued by the custodian banks of the book-entry security holders and has provided the paying agent with the necessary amounts for the payment of the dividend in good time and in full, including reimbursement of expenses in accordance with item 5.
The company expressly reserves the right to change the modalities of the dividend payment.
