The main principles of the OJSC Gazprom Neft dividend policy:

  • ensuring maximum transparency around the mechanism for defining the level of dividend to be distributed and its payment. The Company has formalized the dividend policy it has been pursuing over the last few years by approving the Regulations of the Dividend Policy;
  • complying with the rules of effective Russian Federation law, the Company’s Articles of Incorporation and internal documents. The right to receive dividends is granted to each shareholder listed in the shareholder register as of the date of drawing up the list of shareholders entitled to participate in the shareholder meeting at which it is resolved to pay dividends. The date of registration for depositary receipt holders is set on an individual basis bythe depositary bank (the Bank of New York Mellon);
