Good question. All I can find from the summary of yesterday's annual meeting is the following:
"Those shareholders of record as of April 30, 2013 will be entitled to compensation in the
form of Interest on Shareholders’ Equity. Eletrobras’ shares will be traded ex-interest
beginning on May 02, 2013, as follows:
R$ per share
Gross Values on
Common 0.399210837 0.408528101
Preferred “A” 2.178256581 2.229095358
Preferred “B” 1.633692440 1.671821523
The payment of the aforementioned amounts, as updated pursuant to the Selic rate variation,
will be made no later than December 31, 2013."
So, we're getting paid sometime this year, but it's not clear when. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
