Loyalty Dividends

Some French companies pay so called loyalty dividends to long-term shareholders

For example

"... all shares registered for two consecutive fiscal years, the Group pays a loyalty premium amounting to 10% of the dividend (rounded down to the lower cent where necessary). "

and

"At the General Shareholders' Meeting held on April 28, 2014, shareholders approved the introduction of a 10% loyalty dividend bonus payable to all shareholders who have held shares in nominative form (whether in a direct or an administered account) continuously for at least two fiscal years (equivalent to two calendar years) until the payment date of the dividend."

I'd like to see expansion of such dividend policy beyond France and probably increase minimal period to 3 years.
