2012 dividend payment procedures

Paris, 12 February 2013

The Board of Directors of Societe Generale, which met on 12 February, 2013,  has decided to
propose the distribution of a dividend of EUR 0.45 per share to the Annual General Meeting, and to
offer shareholders the possibility of opting for a dividend payment in new shares.

Subject to a favourable vote by the Annual General Meeting on 22 May, 2013: 

- Dividend detachment will take place on 29 May, 2013. 

- The offer period for the dividend payment in shares will extend from 29 May to12 June, 2013
included. After that date or in the event of failure to exercise the option, the dividend  will be
paid exclusively in cash.

- The issue price of new shares will be equal to 90% of the amount resulting from the calculation
of the average of initial quoted prices in the twenty trading sessions preceding the date of the
distribution decision minus the dividend amount and rounded up to the nearest euro cent.

- If the amount of the dividends for which the option is exercised does not correspond to a whole
number of shares, the shareholder may decide to receive the whole number of shares immediately
above by paying, on the day the option is exercised, the difference in cash, or to receive the
whole number of shares immediately below plus a balancing cash adjustment. Shares issued by way of
a dividend payment will incur interest from 1 January, 2013.

- The dividend will be paid as from 24 June, 2013.
