MILAN, Feb 3 (Reuters) - Intesa Sanpaolo's said on Friday it confirmed a commitment to pay 10 billion euros of dividends over the 2014-2017 period, implying a lower dividend for 2017 than previously expected.
Intesa has already paid 3.6 billion euros of dividends on its 2014 and 2015 accounts and on Friday said it would pay 3 billion euros on 2016 results.
That leaves 3.4 billion euros for dividends to be paid on 2017 results - lower than the 4 billion euros indicated by the bank's Chief Executive Carlo Messina as recently as November.
