In compliance with Resolution no. 5 of the Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders dated 26.04.2021, Nuclearelectrica S.A. National Company ("SNN") hereby announces the payment of dividends related to the financial year 2020 through Depozitarul Central S.A. and CEC Bank, the selected paying agent for the payment of dividends.

The payment of dividends shall be done as of 25.06.2021, date of payment, to the shareholders registered in the Register of Shareholders kept by Depozitarul Central S.A. at the registration date 08.06.2021. Ex-date approved by the Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders of SNN is 07.06.2021.

The gross dividend is RON 1.56514879 per share, and the related dividend tax will be withheld at source in the rates provided by the law.

The payment of net dividends shall be done in RON.

The payment of the net dividends due for 2020 is subject to the general provisions on prescription, being subject to prescription within 3 (three) years from the date of commencement of payment, i.e. 25.06.2024.

Dividend payment methods:

1. Direct payment in the account of Participants (Brokers/ Custodian Banks) - for individual/legal entity shareholders who have opened an account with a PARTICIPANT on the clearing-settlement and registry system of the Central Depositary

For all those shareholders, individuals, legal entities or other entities, who, at the date of registration, 08.06.2021, hold shares highlighted in Section II of the SNN Register of Shareholders in the account opened with the Participant, the related amounts shall be automatically paid by bank transfer through the Central Depository in the name of SNN, at the date of payment, 25.06.2021, in the account of the Participant, without the submission of any further documents.  

NOTE 1: All those shareholders holding accounts with the PARTICIPANTS, may not withdraw their dividends in cash/transfer from CEC Bank counters. 

NOTE 2: SNN shall not opt for delayed payment date.

2. Payment through bank transfer on 25.06.2021 in the account of the individual and legal entity shareholders, not represented by the Participant, according to a request for registering the IBAN account with the Central Depository.

The supporting documents referred to in Annex 1, point 2, for the performance of a bank transfer directly into the shareholder's account shall be transmitted to the Central Depository at least 4 business days prior to the date of payment, either by post or directly to Depozitarul Central S.A. – Bucharest, 34-36 Carol I Blvd., District 2.

In compliance with the legislation applicable to the capital market, as of 2015, the Central Depositary provides all shareholders who are not represented by Participants the option of cashing any amount of money due directly by bank transfer to a bank account, regardless of the issuer distributing the amounts of money. This option entails the registration of the IBAN code at the Central Depository, which may be used to collect more or all of the holdings and remaining valid for subsequent distributions, until a contrary notice from the shareholder is served. The registration of the IBAN by the Central Depository will be charged according to the schedule of rates charged to the holders of financial instruments and shall be borne by each individual shareholder. For further details on this payment option, SNN shareholders are kindly asked to contact the Central Depository at tel. +40 21.408.58.74 or e-mail contact@depozitarulcentral.ro

3.  Payment in cash only for shareholders who are individuals, via the payment agent - CEC Bank

For shareholders not represented by a Participant, who are individuals and do not have their IBAN account registered with the Central Depository, the payment shall be made by releasing cash at the counters of any CEC Bank unit on the territory of Romania.

For the payment via CEC Bank, the shareholders who are individuals shall submit at the CEC Bank counters the documents referred to in Annex 1, section 1.

The list of CEC Bank units is available on the website https://www.cec.ro/sucursale 

In compliance with the provisions of the Tax Code in force, the standard tax rate applicable to dividend income is 5% of the gross amount of the dividends, with the exceptions relate to the non-taxation of dividend income being provided separately. Furthermore, non-resident shareholders may benefit from a different, more favorable, tax rate in compliance with the provisions of the Tax Code and Double Taxation Conventions concluded between Romania and the state of residence of that shareholder, based on the valid certificate of tax residence submitted by the non-resident shareholder.

The non-resident shareholders, which have accounts opened with the Participants (Broker / Custodian Bank), and those that do not have accounts opened with the Participants (those that choose the methods provided under sections 2 and 3) which want the application of the more favorable provisions of the Agreement for avoiding double taxation concluded between Romania and their country of residence must send or submit, either by the Participant, if they have accounts opened with the Participant, or directly, if they have accounts opened with the Participant, at the headquarters of SN Nuclearelectrica S.A., at No. 65, Polona Street, district 1, Bucharest, zip code 010494, in attention of the Communication and Investor Relations Department, until 12.06.2021 inclusively, the fiscal residence certificate for the year in which the dividends are paid, within the validity term, as original documents or as certified copies, with apostilles/superlegalization, if applicable, accompanied by certified translations, and contact details for clarifications, if any, on the fiscal residence certificates. If the verification of the fiscal residence and the provisions of the agreement for avoiding double taxation show that the more favorable rate provided in the agreement for avoiding double taxation may be applied, on the payment date, 25.06.2021, the respective shareholders will receive the net dividends by applying that rate. Otherwise, the standard rate in force provided by the Fiscal Code of Romania will be applied.

In the event of submission of the certificate of tax residence, together with a request for payment through bank transfer of the net dividends distributed by SN Nuclearelectrica S.A., after the date of 12.06.2021, but not later than 14.12.2021, SNN shall withhold on the date of payment (25.06.2021) the dividend tax in force provided by the Romanian Tax Code, with any tax difference due to the shareholder being paid subsequently to the transmission and verification of the documentation, if following the receipt and the verification thereof it results that it would be entitled to a lower tax rate than the standard one laid down in the Romanian Tax Code.

SNN reserves the right to request additional documentation from the shareholder/its proxy, following the analysis of the application requesting the distribution of dividends.  

The certificates of tax residence submitted by Participants after 12.06.2021 for the shareholders these are representing may be submitted at the SNN headquarters in 65 Polona Street, District 1, Bucharest, postal code 010494. Participants shall mention in the submission address of the afore-mentioned documents, the fact that these refer to shareholders of SNN and the dividends related to the financial year 2020, indicating the list of shareholders for whom the tax documents are being submitted, list that shall include: the full name of the shareholder (for the situations where the name in the Register of Shareholders is different from the one mentioned in the tax documents, the reasons/explanations of these differences shall be noted under the heading "Other comments"), the shareholder’s identification code in compliance with the identification code sent to the Central Depositary (i.e. NIN), number of shares held on the Registration date.
