At today's Annual General Meeting (AGM), shareholders of Akzo Nobel N.V. (AkzoNobel) approved the company's 2011 financial statements and agreed that the 2011 financial year dividend would be €1.45 (2010: €1.40) per common share. An interim dividend of €0.33 was paid in November 2011, which means the final payment will be €1.12 per share.
