ASML is the world's leading provider of lithography systems for the semiconductor industry. Headquartered in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, ASML employs more than 7,000 people.
ASML aims to pay an annual dividend that will be stable or growing over time. Annually, the Board of Management will submit a proposal to the AGM with respect to the amount of dividend to be declared with respect to the prior year. The dividend proposal in any given year will be subject to the availability of distributable profits or retained earnings and may be affected by the Board of Management's views on our potential future liquidity requirements, the funding of our R&D programs and for acquisition opportunities that may arise from time to time and by future changes in applicable income tax and corporate laws. Accordingly, it may be decided to propose not to pay a dividend or to pay a lower dividend with respect to any particular year in the future.
For the financial year 2012, dividend is set at EUR 0.53 per ordinary share of EUR 0.09.
