According to the Group’s policy on dividends, at least a third of the net profit earned from ordinary economic activities is distributed as dividends. The Group has developed a good practice of paying dividends earned on other financial investments. The actual dividend rate depends on the Group’s cash flows, development prospects and the need to finance them.
With the approval of the Supervisory Board, the Management Board makes a proposal to the General Meetings to pay for 2018 dividends at the rate of 0.18 (2017: 0.24) euros per share, i.e. a total of 3.2 (2017: 4.3) million euros.
