  • The company’s accounts and the consolidated accounts for 2007 were approved
  • The distribution of a dividend of 0.40 euro for a total amount of 28 million euros was also voted through (to be paid in cash on 3 July 2008). This first ever dividend payment by Atos Origin reflects the good operational performance of the company in 2007 and its confidence in the outlook of the company.
