Aegon shareholders approved the proposed 2011 final dividend at the Annual General Meeting on May 16, 2012. Shareholders were given the choice between a final dividend in either cash or stock.
The cash dividend amounts to EUR 0.10 per common share and will be payable as of June 15, 2012.
Shareholders who elected a stock dividend will receive one new Aegon common share for every 33 common shares held. The stock fraction is based on Aegon's average share price as quoted on the Euronext Amsterdam Stock Exchange, calculated over the five trading days from June 4 up to and including June 8, 2012. The stock dividend and the cash dividend are approximately equal in value.
