Final results 2005
OcÚ confirms that the final results under Dutch GAAP for the 2005 financial year are equal to the provisional results that were published on January 16, 2006. This means total revenues of euro 2,677.3 million, operating income of euro 110.1 million, net income of euro 78.8 million and net earnings of euro 0.92 per euro 0.50 ordinary share.
The results under US GAAP will differ substantially from those under Dutch GAAP because the release of the pension provision in the Netherlands will, under US GAAP not be credited to the Statement of Operations in 2005 but in subsequent years.
As announced on January 16, 2006 it will be proposed to shareholders to adopt a dividend for the 2005 financial year of euro 0.58 (2004: also euro 0.58) per ordinary share of euro 0.50 nominal. Upon adoption of this proposal the final dividend per ordinary share for 2005 will be euro 0.43; the interim dividend amounted to euro 0.15. It is proposed to pay out the final dividend fully in cash. The dividend will be made available for payment as from May 8, 2006. Shares in OcÚ N.V. will be listed "ex-dividend" as of April 24, 2006.
