Shareholders opt for around 65% of shares for optional dividend

The WDP shareholders chose for 64.4% of their shares for a contribution of their dividend rights in consideration for new shares instead of payment of the dividend in cash.

This result leads to a capital increase of around 41 million euros for WDP by way of the creation of 490,361 new shares, as a result of which the total number of WDP shares will equal 21,816,404. Today, together with the expected 2017 retained earnings, this capital increase leads to a total reinforcement of equity of around 66 million euros for 2017.
