Paris, February 10, 2022 - The Board of Directors of TotalEnergies SE, meeting on February 9, 2022 under the chairmanship of Mr. Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, approved the following decisions:

1. Dividend for the 2021 financial year

The Board decided to propose at the Shareholders' Meeting to be held on May 25, 2022, the distribution of a final dividend of €0.66/share for the 2021 financial year, the same amount as the three interim payments paid for the 2021 financial year.

Taking into account the three interim dividends of €0.66/share previously declared by the Board, the dividend for the 2021 financial year will amount to €2.64/share.

Subject to approval by the General Assembly, this final dividend will be paid in cash exclusively, according to the following schedule:

  Shares American Depositary Receipts
Ex-dividend date June 21, 2022 June 17, 2022
Payment date July 1, 2022 July 14, 2022


2. Return to shareholder policy for the 2022 financial year

The Board of Directors has defined a shareholder return policy for 2022. It will combine:

  • an increase in the interim dividends of 5% taking into account the structural growth in cash flow generated by the LNG and electricity business, and
  • buybacks to share the surplus cash flow from high hydrocarbon prices. These share buybacks are expected to be $2 billion for the first half of 2022.

3. Sustainability & Climate Advisory Resolution for the 2022 General Assembly

In accordance with the resolution approved by shareholders in May 2021 on TotalEnergies' ambitions for sustainable development and energy transition toward carbon neutrality, the Board of Directors will report on the progress made in implementing these ambitions at the Shareholders' Meeting on May 25, 2022. With this in mind, the Board of Directors will adopt a Sustainability & Climate - Progress Report 2022, which will be submitted to a shareholder advisory vote at the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on May 25, 2022. It will be published and presented on March 24, 2022, during a Strategy, Sustainability & Climate investor meeting.
