Announcement regarding strategic actions to enhance longterm shareholder value

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (KS005930, KS005935, SMSN, SMSD) (“SEC”) announced
today that its Board of Directors has authorized the following strategic actions to enhance longterm shareholder value. The details are as follows:


* Strategic actions to enhance long-term shareholder value
① Set the percentage of free cash flow (“FCF”) in 2016 and 2017 allocated to shareholder returns at 50%.
② Increase 2016 total dividends.
- Total dividend amount: approximately KRW 4.0 trillion
③ The remaining portion of the 50% of free cash flow after the dividend payouts, plus KRW 0.8 trillion
from 2015, will be used to repurchase shares. The repurchased shares will then be retired.
④ Initiate quarterly dividend payments starting in the first quarter of 2017.


* Review the company structure to create an optimal environment for sustaining growth and
enhancing shareholder value
- We expect that the review process, including possibly conducting a review of the holding company
structure, will require approximately 6 months.
