What is Eni's dividend policy?

  • Ensuring that capital expenditures and dividends are met by operational cash flow:
    • With the contribution of disposals in 2016 and at an oil price scenario of $50/bbl.
    • Organically (without the contribution of disposals) in 2017 at an oil price scenario of $60/bbl.
    • Organically (without the contribution of disposals) in 2018-19 at an oil price scenario below $60 per barrel
  • A payout ratio (the percentage of profit distributed as dividends) which is sustainable in the long term and in line with profit growth.

What is the taxation on dividends?

Witholding tax on dividends from ordinary shares paid to a foreign individual investor amount to 27%. Specific fiscal conventions in place between Italy and single foreign countries can entitle to a reduction of said witholding tax under certain circumstances. The foreign individual investor can claim to the Italian tax authority a reimbursement up to 4/9 of witholding (i.e. up to 4/9 of 27%) of tax paid abroad certified by the relevant tax authorities. If you are non resident in Italy and you want to claim the reimbursement, please refer to the following pages of the web site of the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance.
