DSM N.V. : Final dividend Royal DSM

The DSM Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on 7 May 2014 passed a
resolution to declare a dividend for 2013 of €1.65 per ordinary share of
€1.50 par value. An interim dividend of €0.50 per ordinary share having been
paid on 29 August 2013, the final dividend for 2013 will amount to €1.15 per
ordinary share.
With the passing of the resolution by the AGM, and in line with DSM's policy
to provide a stable and preferably rising dividend, 2013 marks the fourth
consecutive year DSM's dividend has been increased.

This final dividend of €1.15 will be paid out in cash or in the form of
ordinary shares at the option of the shareholder. Dividend in cash will be
paid after deduction of 15% Dutch dividend withholding tax. The ex-dividend
date on NYSE Euronext will be 9 May 2014 and the record date will be 13 May
2014.

Shareholders have from 14 May until 27 May 2014 (3.00 pm CET) to indicate
their choice. On 28 May 2014 after the close of trading on NYSE Euronext the
number of dividend rights of ordinary shares entitling the holder to one
ordinary share will be determined.

This exchange ratio will be based on the volume weighted average price of all
ordinary shares in DSM traded at NYSE Euronext on 21 May 2014 up to and
including 27 May 2014. The value of the stock dividend will be virtually
equal to the value of the cash dividend. The ordinary shares that constitute
the stock dividend are entitled to any dividend for the financial year 2014
and to the dividends for subsequent financial years. Stock dividend rights
will not be traded on NYSE Euronext.
