REXEL : REXEL : TERMS AND CONDITION FOR THE PAYMENT OF THE DIVIDEND IN SHARES OR IN CASH TERMS AND CONDITION FOR THE PAYMENT OF THE DIVIDEND IN SHARES OR IN CASH The Management Board of Rexel has decided to submit to Rexel's annual meeting of shareholders; that will meet on May 22, 2013, to distribute a dividend of €0.75 per share. The Management Board of Rexel has also submitted to Rexel's annual meeting of shareholders a resolution in order to offer to each shareholder the choice of opting for the payment of the dividend either in cash or in new shares of Rexel. The shareholders can exercise their option from May 31, 2013 (inclusive) to June 21, 2013 (inclusive) upon request to the concerned financial intermediaries. In the event of the absence of exercise of the option before June 21, 2013 (inclusive), the dividend will be paid only in cash. The choice will apply to the full dividend amount for which this choice is offered. If the option is exercised, the price of the new shares issued for the payment of the dividend will represent 90% of the average opening stock prices over the twenty trading days preceding the date of the annual meeting, less the net amount of dividend decided by the Annual Meeting. If the dividend amount to which a shareholder is entitled is not equal to a whole number of shares, the shareholder will receive the next lower whole number of shares along with a cash payment for the difference, which corresponds to the difference between the amount of dividends for which the option is made and the subscription price of the next lower whole number of shares. The new shares issued as payment for the dividend, in the event the option is exercised, will be the object of an application for admission to trading on the NYSE Euronext market in Paris. They will be subject to Rexel's article of association and will carry rights from January 1, 2013. Consequently, from their issuance, they will be entirely assimilated to ordinary shares composing Rexel's share capital (FR0010451203-RXL). The record date is May 30, 2013 and the ex-dividend date is May 31, 2013. The payment in cash or the delivery of the new shares when the option is exercised will be carried out from July 2, 2013.
