Distribution for the Financial Year 2016

For the financial year 2016, the Annual General Meeting on April 28, 2017 approved the distribution of CHF 0.70 per registered share in the form of either a scrip dividend or a cash distribution at the election of the shareholder.

The election period during which eligible shareholders could make their election on how to receive their distribution for the financial year 2016 ended on May 19, 2017 (12:00 noon CEST). During the election period, 1,371,197,621 election rights were exercised for the receipt of new Credit Suisse Group AG shares. This results in 72,881,770 new Credit Suisse Group AG shares to be issued out of authorized capital, representing 3.5% of the currently issued share capital of Credit Suisse Group AG.

The reference share price was calculated based on the five-day average of the daily volume-weighted average prices of the Credit Suisse Group AG shares listed on SIX Swiss Exchange from May 15, 2017, to May 19, 2017, and is CHF 14.32. Less a discount of 8% to the reference share price, the issue price of the new Credit Suisse Group AG shares is CHF 13.17, resulting in a conversion ratio of 1 new share for 18.814 existing shares.

65.6% of the distribution for the financial year 2016 will be paid in new Credit Suisse Group AG shares. Election rights not exercised for the receipt of new Credit Suisse Group AG shares during the election period will be paid out in cash in the amount of CHF 0.70 per registered share, as approved at the Annual General Meeting on April 28, 2017.

The amount per American depositary share in USD will be determined by the USD/CHF exchange rate closer to the payment date.

The distribution out of capital contribution reserves was free of Swiss withholding tax and was not subject to income tax for Swiss resident individuals holding the shares as a private investment.
To be eligible to receive the distribution for 2016, it is necessary to own the CSG shares on May 8, 2017 (end of day).

Our dividend payment policy seeks to provide investors with a stable and efficient form of capital distribution relative to earnings.
