Beter Bed Holding NV: Beter Bed dividend proposal approved

The Annual General Meeting of Beter Bed Holding N.V. held on 19 May 2016
declared a final dividend of € 0.48 per ordinary share of nominally € 0.02
each for the 2015 financial year.

An interim dividend of € 0.39 was paid in November 2015. The total dividend
for 2015 consequently amounts to € 0.87, resulting in a pay-out ratio of 85%.
A dividend of € 0.65 was paid for 2014 (pay-out ratio: 85%). The final
dividend will be paid entirely in cash.

The following schedule will apply to the payment of the dividend:

23 May 2016 listing ex-dividend
24 May 2016 record date
7 June 2016 payment of dividend

Dividend policy
The dividend policy of Beter Bed Holding is aimed at maximising shareholder
returns while maintaining a healthy capital position. The company's objective
is to, subject to certain conditions, pay out at least fifty percent of the
net profit to shareholders. This will be done in the form of payment of an
interim dividend following publication of the third-quarter figures and
payment of a final dividend following the adoption of the financial
statements and following the approval of the dividend proposal by the Annual
General Meeting. This method makes it possible to spread the payment of
dividend evenly across the year. The company's solvency must never fall below
thirty percent on any given publication date as a result of the payment of
dividend. The net interest-bearing debt/EBITDA ratio may never exceed two.
