Eni’s Shareholders remuneration policy is structured as follows:
- an annual dividend with:
- a floor of 0.36 euro/share that will be secured at a Brent Reference price of 43 $/bbl (Floor Dividend)
- an additional variable component calculated as a percentage between 30% and 45% of the incremental Free Cash Flow generated by a Brent Reference price between 43 $/bbl and 65 $/bbl
- a share buyback triggered by a Brent Reference price of 56 $/bbl with a value of 300 Mln euro per year. This amount will rise to 400 Mln euro per year from $61 $/bbl and to 800 Mln euro per year from 66 $/bbl onward.
The Floor Dividend will grow as the company realises its strategic plan.
Total dividend payment (floor + variable) will be split 50/50 between the traditional dual tranches of payment in September and May.
Brent Reference price for the dividend and the buyback is announced in July, during the traditional half year presentation.
