Dividend Declaration


Total Proposes an Increased Fourth Quarter 2016 Dividend of 0.62 Euros Per Share and a 2016 Annual Dividend of 2.45 Euros Per Share


The Board of Directors met on February 8, 2017 and decided to propose to the Combined Shareholders’ Meeting, which will be held on May 26, 2017, an annual dividend of 2.45 €/share for 2016, an increase compared to 2015. Given the three previous 2016 interim quarterly dividends of 0.61 €/share, a fourth quarter 2016 dividend of 0.62 €/share is therefore proposed, representing an increase of 1.6% compared to the previous three interim dividends.

“The Board of Directors’ decision to propose a dividend increase despite the volatility of hydrocarbon prices demonstrates the Board’s confidence in the strength of the Group’s results and balance sheet as well as its prospects for cash flow growth,” said Chairman and CEO Patrick Pouyanné.

The Board of Directors also decided to propose to the Combined Shareholders’ Meeting the alternative for shareholders to receive the fourth quarter 2016 dividend in cash or in new shares of the company with a discount that will be set between 0% and 10%.

Subject to approval at the Combined Shareholders’ Meeting:

American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”) will receive the final quarterly installment of the 2016 dividend in dollars based on the then-prevailing exchange rate according to the following timetable:
