Shareholders opt for around 68% of shares for optional dividend

The WDP shareholders chose for 67.8% 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 47 million euros for WDP by way of the creation of 497,325 new shares, as a result of which the total number of WDP shares will equal 22,506,602. Today, together with the expected 2018 retained earnings, this capital increase leads to a total reinforcement of equity of around 82 million euros for 2018.
