Rémy Cointreau: Combined General Meeting on 24 July 2018 Payment of Dividend in Shares or Cash


Regulatory News:

The Combined General Meeting of the Rémy Cointreau (Paris:RCO)
shareholders, chaired by M. Marc Hériard Dubreuil, was held on 24 July
2018 in Paris, France.

During the meeting, the financial statements for the 2017/18 financial
year were approved and the overall dividend was set at €1.65 per share.
It was decided that every shareholder would be granted the option of
receiving payment of the dividend in cash or in shares for the entire
dividend paid.

The dividend coupon will be detached on 31 July 2018 and the dividend
will be payable from 17 September 2018. Shareholders who wish to opt for
the payment of the dividend in shares will have the period from 31 July
2018 to 7 September 2018 included, to submit a request to their
financial intermediary. All shareholders who do not exercise their
option by 7 September 2018 by 17:00 (CET) at the latest, will only
receive their dividend in cash, starting from 17 September 2018.

The issue price of the new share will be €101.11.

If a shareholder's net dividend entitlement does not correspond to an
exact number of shares, the shareholder may obtain the immediately
higher number of shares by paying, on the day they exercise their
option, the difference in cash or receive the immediate lower number of
shares, together with the balance in cash.

The new shares will be subject to the provisions of the law and the
bylaws and will be effective from 1 April 2018, the start of the current
financial year. They will be delivered in nominative or bearer form, at
the option of the shareholder. Shareholders will receive them from the
financial intermediary where their shares are recorded, along with an
instruction request which they must complete, sign and return.

A request will be made to admit the new shares to trading on the
Euronext Stock Exchange, Paris.
