Eni's distribution policy is based on the payment of a progressive dividend in line with the growth of underlying earnings.
Following the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting decision to distribute a cash dividend of €1.12 per share, €0.56 per share was paid as interim dividend in September 2014. The balance of €0.56 per share was paid to shareholders on May 20, 2015, with the ex-dividend date being May 18, 2015.
Following new Italian tax laws in force from January 1, 2004, dividends do not entitle to a tax credit and are either subject to a withholding tax, or partially cumulated to the receiver's taxable income, depending on the receiver fiscal status.
On ADR payment date, Bank of New York Mellon will pay the dividend less the entire amount of a withholding tax under Italian law (currently 27%) to all Depository Trust Company Participants, representing payment of Eni SpA's interim dividend.
On June 1, 2001 Eni Shareholders' Meeting resolved to convert the nominal value of Eni shares into euro and to group two shares of nominal value 0.5 euro into one share with nominal value one euro. In order to make an homogeneous comparison possible, data presented in the tables of this page were calculated assuming that the above mentioned grouping occurred starting from the first year of each table.
Dividend Yield - Dividend/price ratio
Corresponds to the ratio between the dividend and the share price.
The values shown have been calculated using the following methodology:
value of the dividend per share in relation to the average closing price in the month of December of the year to which the dividend refers.
e.g.: Dividend yield 2002 = euro 0.75 (dividend for 2002 distributed in June 2003) / euro 14.42 (average share price in December 2002)
The dividend yield is used as an indicator of the return of the share excluding capital account gains/losses.
It should not be seen as a forecasted return in that it takes account of the dividend of each year.
