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.

The final dividend will be paid on May 24, 2012. Under the conditions to be published by the company and at the shareholder's election, this dividend will be paid either in cash or in stock. The AkzoNobel shares will be traded ex-dividend on Euronext Amsterdam as of April 25, 2012. The record date is April 27, 2012.
