Dividends Adjustments on Shares

Shares are subject to dividend adjustments.

When a company pays dividends to its shareholders it is essentially reducing the value of the company by the amount of the dividend.

This is reflected by a reduction of the share price at the market open on the ex-dividend date (the day that the company stock starts trading without the value of the dividend).

If you hold a stock that pays a dividend, then you will be credited the after-tax amount of the dividend on the ex-dividend date.

The applicable tax rates for dividends are as follows:

Germany: 25%

UK: 0% (i.e. no tax is applicable on dividends)

US: 30%

Your long positions will receive an amount calculated as follows:

Dividend Adjustment = stock dividend declared x position size in shares x (1 — the applicable tax rate)

US: 30% (By default, all individuals are subject to 30% withholding tax under the US regulations. However, the US signed tax treaties with certain countries that may entitle you, where eligible, to a reduced rate of withholding tax. In order for us to apply the relevant rate in accordance with the treaty you may be under, XM has an obligation to obtain the necessary documentation from you, which is the W-8BEN form)
