    RUB 8.04 per share dividends proposed by Gazprom Management Committee for 2017

    The Gazprom Management Committee addressed issues associated with arranging and holding the Company’s annual General Shareholders Meeting.

    The Management Committee endorsed the proposal to convene the annual General Shareholders Meeting of Gazprom in Saint Petersburg at 10 a.m. on June 29, 2018. The registration of the Meeting participants is to be carried out on June 27 (from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and on June 29 (from 9 a.m.).

    In addition, the Management Committee approved the proposals on:

    • the format and content of voting ballots and the wording of decisions on the Meeting agenda;
    • the procedure for notifying shareholders about the Meeting;
    • the composition of the Shareholders Meeting Presidium and its Chairman;
    • the list of information materials for the Meeting to be distributed among Gazprom’s shareholders after examination by the Board of Directors. The materials will be sent in due time to the shareholders’ addresses indicated in the Meeting notice.

    The aforementioned proposals will be submitted to the Board of Directors for consideration.

    The Management Committee submitted to the Board of Directors Gazprom’s Annual Accounting (Financial) Statements for 2017 compiled in accordance with the Russian legislation, as well as the following draft documents:

    • the Shareholders Meeting agenda;
    • the distribution of Gazprom’s profit based on the 2017 operating results.

    The Management Committee approved the composition of the Shareholders Meeting Drafting Commission.

    The Management Committee formulated the proposals for the Board of Directors concerning the dividend payout based on the Company’s operating results in 2017. In particular, the proposed size of dividends makes up RUB 8.04 per share (at last year’s level). Thus, Gazprom continues to pursue a policy aimed at maintaining the dividend amount equal to or higher than the level already achieved by the Company, taking into account the need to ensure that the Company remains financially stable and its priority strategic projects are implemented.

    The decision on the dividend size, payout method and dates, as well as the date on which a list of persons entitled to receive dividends is drawn up, will be made by the Shareholders Meeting as recommended by the Board of Directors.

    The Management Committee resolved to propose to the Board of Directors to nominate FBK for approval by the Shareholders Meeting as the Company’s auditor. FBK is the winner of the open bidding procedure among auditing companies for performing statutory annual audit of Gazprom.

    The Management Committee approved and submitted to the Board of Directors draft amendments to the Regulation on the General Shareholders Meeting of Gazprom.

    At present, the Company has several hundred thousand shareholders in Russia and abroad. Therefore, shareholders are advised to exercise the right to take part in the Meeting via their trustees by proxy or via a filled out voting ballot sent to Gazprom, or to give instructions regarding the vote to a nominal shareholder responsible for share registration.
