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 2018 Annual General Meeting voted for an ordinary dividend of SEK 4.75 (4.75) per share. The dividend provides a yield of 3.6 percent (4.1), based on the share price at the end of 2017 and 2016. The figures have been restated to take into account the 2:1 share split in 2018.
