THE HAGUE, Netherlands, September 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Aegon shareholders were given the opportunity to choose between receiving the 2017 interim dividend of EUR 0.13 per common share in cash or in stock. The stock dividend and the cash dividend are approximately equal in value. 43% of shareholders elected to receive the stock dividend.  

Those who elected a stock dividend will receive one Aegon common share for every 36 common shares held. The stock fraction is based on Aegon's average share price as quoted on Euronext Amsterdam, using the high and low of each of the five trading days from September 4 up to and including September 8, 2017. The average share price calculated on this basis amounted to
EUR 4.7033. The dividend will be payable as of September 15, 2017. Aegon intends to neutralize the dilutive effect of the final 2016 and interim 2017 stock dividend on earnings per share in the fourth quarter of this year, barring unforeseen circumstances.
