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 2019 Annual General Meeting will propose for an ordinary dividend of SEK 2.50 (5.10) per share. The dividend provides a yield of 1.6 percent (3.9), based on the share price at the end of 2019 and 2018.  It is the Board of Directors’ ambition to call an extraordinary general meeting later in the year that will decided on an additional dividend, subject to a stabilization in the market situation by that time.
