Brussels, October 29, 2020 – Telenet Group Holding NV (“Telenet” or the “Company”) (Euronext Brussels: TNET) announces that its board of directors has decided to firm up its existing shareholder remuneration policy on the back of the robust Adjusted Free Cash Flow conversion and strong delivery against the Company’s three-year plan. The amended policy aims to find a balance between attractive shareholder distributions, while preserving optionality for future value-accretive M&A opportunities. Assuming no significant changes in our business or regulatory environment, the board of directors has introduced a dividend floor of €2.75 per share, replacing the previously communicated 50-70% pay-out range as a percentage of our Adjusted Free Cash Flow. The proposed gross dividend of €2.75 per share consists of a gross intermediate dividend of €1.375 per share (to be paid in December 2020 and subject to shareholder approval) and a gross dividend of €1.375 per share (to be paid in May 2021, subject to board and shareholder approval and assuming no significant changes in our business or regulatory environment).
