recent pressrelease next pressrelease

(Thomson Reuters ONE) -

The DSM Annual General Meeting of Shareholders passed a resolution on 29 April
2016 to declare a dividend for the financial year 2015 of ?1.65 per ordinary
share of ?1.50 nominal value. An interim dividend of ?0.55 per ordinary share
having been paid in August 2015, the final dividend for the financial year 2015
will amount to ?1.10 per ordinary share.

This final dividend of ?1.10 will be paid out in cash or in the form of ordinary
shares at the option of the shareholder. Dividend in cash will be paid after
deduction of 15% Dutch dividend withholding tax. Stock dividend will be paid out
from DSM''s own treasury shares supported by its share repurchase program, and
subject to the conditions as stated in the Notes to the AGM agenda. The ex-
dividend date on Euronext Amsterdam will be 3 May 2016 and the record date will
be 4 May 2016.

Shareholders have from 5 May until 18 May 2016 (3.00 pm CET) to indicate if they
wish to receive their dividend in the form of ordinary shares, otherwise it will
be distributed in cash. The number of dividend rights of ordinary shares
entitling the holder to one ordinary share will be determined on 19 May 2016
after the close of trading on Euronext Amsterdam.

This exchange ratio will be based on the volume weighted average price of all
ordinary shares in DSM traded at Euronext Amsterdam on 12 May 2016 up to and
including 18 May 2016. The value of the stock dividend will be virtually equal
to the value of the cash dividend. The ordinary shares that constitute the stock
dividend are entitled to any dividend for the financial year 2016 and to the
dividends for subsequent financial years. Stock dividend rights will not be
traded on Euronext Amsterdam. The dividend will be payable as from 24 May 2016.

The following timetable applies:

3 May 2016: Ex-dividend quotation

4 May 2016: Record Date

5 May 2016 - 18 May 2016 (3.00 pm CET): Period in which shareholders can
