Dividend amounts 

 

Currency conversion method

From and including the third quarter of 2015, dividend is declared in USD. The NOK dividend will be calculated and communicated four business days after the record date for Oslo Børs shareholders. The NOK dividend will be based on average USD/NOK fixing rates from Norges Bank in the period plus/minus three business days from record date, in total seven business days.

Dividend payments by check

From and including the fourth quarter 2015 (to be paid on or around 24th of June), Statoil will no longer offer payments by check to its shareholders on Oslo Børs. Payments by check are an expensive way of distributing cash. All future payments of cash dividends will therefore be executed through bank accounts.

Hence Statoil requests its shareholders on Oslo Børs (who have not done so already) to register a bank account with their registrar in order to receive their cash dividends. Questions around any unclaimed dividend payments should be directed to Statoil’s registrar DNB Bank ASA (e-mail: kua@dnb.no), who will assist in solving such issues.
