Following shareholder approval at the 2009 Annual General Meetings, Unilever moved to quarterly dividends in 2010, establishing a simpler and more transparent dividend practice. When a dividend on the ordinary shares is to be paid, the payment date on all four listings for Unilever NV and Unilever PLC will be the same. Dividends are paid in March, June, September and December. To view the dates please see the dividend calendar.
The dividend on the Unilever N.V. 6% and 7% cumulative preference shares is normally paid early October.
