5. Adjustment process after dividend payments

The previous day settlement price is adjusted for the regular gross dividend paid by the underlying company. The adjustment takes place via technical trades. The start of day position of each affected Clearing Member of Eurex Clearing AG is booked out at the previous day’s settlement price and booked in at the adjusted previous day’s settlement price. The resulting variation margins offset the reduction in share price resulting from the dividend payment.
