BNP Paribas Securities Services manages the payment of the dividend, which is made through financial intermediaries using the Euroclear France direct payment system.
Since November 12, 2014, JP Morgan Chase Bank (4 New York Plaza, New York, NY 10005-1401, USA) has managed the payment of dividends to holders of American Depositary Receipts (ADRs). Prior to that date, payments were managed by The Bank of New York Mellon.
Dividend payment on stock certificates
TOTAL issued stock certificates (certificats représentatifs d’actions, “CRs”) as part of the public exchange offer for Total Petrochemicals & Refining SA/NV (formerly PetroFina) shares.
The CR is a stock certificate provided for by French rules, issued by Euroclear France, intended to circulate exclusively outside of France, and which may not be held by French residents. The CR is freely convertible from a physical certificate into a security registered on a custody account and vice-versa. However, in compliance with the Belgian law of December 14, 2005 on the dematerialization of securities in Belgium, CRs may only be delivered in the form of a dematerialized certificate as of January 1, 2008, the effective date of the law. In addition, ING Belgique is the bank handling the payment of all coupons detached from outstanding CRs.
No fees are applicable to the payment of coupons detached from CRs, except for any income or withholding taxes; the payment may be received on request at the following bank branches:
ING Belgique Avenue Marnix 24, 1000 Brussels, Belgium
BNP Paribas Fortis Avenue des Arts 45, 1040 Brussels, Belgium
KBC BANK N.V. Avenue du Port 2, 1080 Brussels, Belgium
