REGISTERED SHARES AND A SHARE SAVINGS PLAN
If you hold your L’Oréal shares in a share savings plan (PEA) and you would like to benefit from the advantages of holding registered shares, in particular the loyalty bonus, while keeping the tax advantages offered by the PEA, you should choose to hold managed registered shares.
ADVANTAGES OF DIRECTLY REGISTERED SHARES
If you would also like to benefit from free management and custody fees, as well as preferential brokerage and bank fees, you should choose to hold directly registered shares. However this is only possible outside a share savings plan (PEA).
HOW CAN YOU FOLLOW YOUR REGISTERED SHARES?
The introduction of the preferential dividend has made it necessary to create specific ISIN codes. These codes make it possible to determine each year whether the shares concerned will give the right to an ordinary dividend or a preferential dividend.
The L’Oréal share is listed and traded under ISIN code FR0000120321.
L’Oréal shares which have been registered during the current year and which will benefit from the loyalty bonus after 2 full calendar years are identified by this code.
- FR0011149590 L’Oréal shares which were registered prior to 31 December 2014 and which already benefit from the loyalty bonus are identified by this code.
- FR0013295268 L’Oréal shares which were registered in 2017 and which will benefit from the loyalty bonus in 2020 are identified by this code.
- FR0013217056 L’Oréal shares which were registered in 2016 and which will benefit from the loyalty bonus in 2019 are identified by this code.
Only the FR0000120321 is a trading code. If you want to sell shares with the bonus codes FR0011149590, FR0013295268, FR0013217056, your financial institution will deal with modifying this code in order to execute your order.
