Payment of the dividend and the distribution of the special reserves will start on July 15th, 2015 through the Paying Bank as follows:

- To the Shareholders themselves, provided that they hold their shares with the «Hellenic Central Securities Depository S.A.» (ATHEXCSD) or they have not authorized an Account Operator to receive dividend payments on their behalf or they have recalled any such authorisation.

To receive in person the amounts they are entitled to, in cash or by collection of a bank draft issued by the Paying Bank to their order, through the branch network of the Paying Bank in Cyprus, by presenting their ID or passport and their particulars in the Dematerialized Securities System.
