The dividend policy of Heineken N.V. intends to preserve the independence of the Company, to maintain a healthy financial
structure and to retain sufficient earnings in order to grow the business both organically and through acquisitions.
The dividend payments are related to the annual development of the net profit before exceptional items and amortisation
of brands (net profit beia), which results in a dividend payout ratio in the range of 30-35 per cent.
Dividends are paid in the form of an interim dividend and a final dividend. The interim dividend is fixed at 40 per cent
of the total dividend of the previous year. Annual dividend proposals will remain subject to shareholder approval.
On 4 November 2003, Heineken N.V. issued two bonds for a total of EUR1.1 billion, of which a bond with a face value
of EUR600 million with a maturity date of 4 November 2013 is still outstanding.
In September 2008, HEINEKEN established a Euro Medium Term Note (EMTN) Programme which was subsequently updated
in September 2009 and September 2010. The programme allows Heineken N.V. from time to time to issue Notes. Currently
approximately EUR1.9 billion of Notes is outstanding under the programme. The programme can be used for issuance
up to one year after its latest update. The EMTN Programme and all Heineken N.V. bonds are listed on the Luxembourg
