Ahold (AH.AS) dividend Increase and share buyback program

Today Ahold (AH.AS) published their Annual Report 2014. AH announced a 2.1% increase in its dividend. The dividend is raised from €0.47 to €0.48. The dividend pay date is not announced yet. But just like the last couple of years it will be around 4th of May. The ex-dividend day will be around the 22nd of April 2015.

The dividend yield on current price is 2.85%.
Besides the dividend increase, AH also announced a new €500 million share buyback program over the next 12 month.

Since I own 443 shares of AH, my annual dividends will increase by €4.43. My annual total amount from my shares of AH will be €180.74 after taxes.

      Hello R2R,
      Royal Ahold is the holding Company.
      I think about 60% of their turnover comes from the States.
      Have you heard from Stop&Shop, Giant, Martins and Peapod?
      These are owned by Royal Ahold.
