DIVIDEND

The Board of Directors has adopted an amended dividend policy that stipulates that the dividend, in the long term, shall amount to not less than one-third of the company’s net profit, excluding items affecting comparability, compared with the earlier policy of approximately one-third of profit after standard tax.

The 2020 Annual General Meeting will propose for an ordinary dividend of SEK 3.00 (2.50) per share. The dividend provides a yield of 2.3 percent (1.6), based on the share price at the end of 2020 and 2019.
