Stock dividend proposed at the Annual General Meeting
on May 23, 2019
The Annual General Meeting of Compagnie Financière Tradition SA to be held on May 23, 2019 at 3.30 pm to approve the company and group accounts for the 2018 financial year will vote on the distribution of dividend, in accordance with and subject to the proposal of the Board of Directors, published in the Swiss Official Gazette of Commerce on April 26, 2019.
The Board has proposed the dividend consists of a cash payment of a gross amount of CHF 5.00 («cash dividend») per bearer share of CFT with a nominal value of CHF 2.50 («bearer share(s)») and the distribution of one bearer share for every 35 bearer shares held («stock dividend»).

The taxable gross amount for the cash dividend is CHF 5.00 for every bearer share held and for the stock dividend CHF 2.97 (reference share price divided by 35) for every bearer share held.
