Shareholders were given the choice between an interim dividend either in cash or stock. The cash dividend amounts to EUR 0.10 per common share and will be payable as of September 14, 2012.
Shareholders who elected a stock dividend in shares will receive one new Aegon common share for every 42 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 September 3 up to and including September 7, 2012. The stock and cash dividend are approximately equal in value.
