FCA EXTRAORDINARY DIVIDEND DISTRIBUTION Q&A

Please note that hereinafter, the terms FCA NV, FCA NV shares and shareholders refer to the situation existing prior to the Effective Time of the contemplated cross-border legal merger between Peugeot S.A. (“PSA”) and FCA NV (the “Merger”).

While payment of the cash distribution will occur after the closing of the Merger, for the avoidance of doubt, no cash distribution will be payable with respect to shares of Stellantis issued to former shareholders of PSA upon effectiveness of the Merger, or to any shareholder purchasing Stellantis shares after effectiveness of the Merger.

Owners of FCA NV shares are urged to consult their tax advisors as to the overall tax consequences of acquiring, holding and disposing of FCA NV shares and of the receipt of any dividends from FCA NV, including any applicable withholding tax.


Q: The press release issued by FCA NV on January 4, 2021 referred to the €2.9 billion cash distribution as “conditional”. Why was the original announcement of the distribution labeled as “conditional”?

A: Payment of the cash distribution was conditioned upon the further announcement by FCA NV that all required corporate steps in preparation for completion of the Merger had been taken and the distribution had become unconditional. Absent such announcement, no distribution would have been payable.

Following FCA NV’s announcement on January 13, 2021, the cash distribution has become unconditional and will be paid to shareholders of FCA NV as of the close of business on the record date, January 15, 2021.

Q: Which shareholders are subject to 15% Dutch withholding tax?

A: Because FCA NV is incorporated in the Netherlands, 15% Dutch withholding tax applies to dividends paid by FCA NV to Dutch tax resident shareholders except Dutch tax resident corporate shareholders who own more than 5% of FCA NV’s share capital.

Q: Are US and other non-Dutch shareholders subject to the 15% Dutch withholding tax?

A: No, US and other non-Dutch resident shareholders are not subject to Dutch withholding tax. However, unless tax residency information is submitted by your stockbroker or other financial intermediary as requested by GlobeTax by January 22, 2021, 15% of the dividend will be subject to holdback with respect to DTC shareholders and only paid after the appropriate information, including tax residency, has been provided by the shareholder’s broker or other financial intermediary as requested by GlobeTax as discussed below.

Q: Which shareholders are subject to Italian withholding tax?

A: Italian tax resident individual shareholders who hold their shares through Monte Titoli and who do not qualify for reduction or exemption under Italian law are generally subject to 26% Italian withholding tax. Italian tax resident shareholders who hold their shares through the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) must self-assess and pay any applicable Italian tax unless an Italian-based financial intermediary is responsible to withhold Italian tax.

Q: What amount of the dividend will I receive on January 29, 2021?

A: Dutch tax resident shareholders will receive the dividend net of 15% Dutch withholding tax, on January 29, 2021. Dutch tax resident corporate shareholders who own more than 5% of FCA NV’s share capital are not subject to Dutch withholding tax and will receive 100% of the dividend on January 29, 2021.

For non-Dutch tax resident DTC shareholders, if tax residency information is submitted by your stockbroker or other financial intermediary as requested by GlobeTax by January 22, 2021, you will receive 100% of the dividend on January 29, 2021 and avoid a 15% holdback. If tax residency information is not provided to GlobeTax by January 22, 2021, non-Dutch tax resident DTC shareholders will receive 85% of the dividend on January 29, 2021 and the remaining 15% of the dividend will be subject to holdback and paid only after necessary information is submitted by your stockbroker or other financial intermediary as requested by GlobeTax (see below for submission of required information to GlobeTax and timing of payment of any holdback).

Italian tax resident Monte Titoli individual shareholders will receive the dividend, net of 26% Italian withholding tax (unless an Italian withholding tax reduction or exemption applies) on January 29, 2021.

All other Monte Titoli shareholders will receive 100% of the dividend on January 29, 2021.

Q: How do I know if my shares are held by DTC or by Monte Titoli?

Q: If I am an eligible DTC shareholder and did not receive 100% of the dividend on January 29, 2021, what information should be provided to GlobeTax in order to receive payment of the 15% holdback and who provides the information to GlobeTax?

Individual DTC shareholders should not submit any information directly to GlobeTax.

Q: What is the deadline for stockbrokers and financial intermediaries of DTC shareholders to submit the required information to GlobeTax in order to receive payment of the 15% holdback and when will the 15% holdback be paid?

The second deadline to submit information to GlobeTax is March 12, 2021, 8 pm EST with payment of the 15% holdback in March 2021.

Payment of the 15% holdback will follow the same process of the dividend distribution according to your broker or bank policy.
