The Board’s goal is to provide the shareholders an attractive dividend yield and high dividend growth. The goal is that over time, the dividend shall range from 30% to 60% of net profit. During the last five-year period, of Indutrade’s aggregate profit after tax, totalling SEK 4,931 million, dividends of SEK 2,051 million were paid to the shareholders (including the proposed dividend for the year), which corresponds to a dividend payout ratio of 42%.
Dividend for 2018
The Board of Directors proposes a dividend of SEK 4.50 (3.75) per share for 2018, corresponding to a total amount of SEK 544 million. The proposed dividend is in line with Indutrade's dividend policy to distribute 30%-60% of net profit.
The dividend will be paid to shareholders who on the record date,
13 May 2019 are registered in the shareholder register. Provided that the AGM resolves in accordance with the Board’s proposal, payment of the dividend is expected to be made via Euroclear Sweden on 16 May 2019.
