The Board aims to provide shareholders with a dividend that generates an attractive direct yield and high dividend growth. The objective is to achieve a dividend payout ratio of 30-60% of net income over time. Over the past five-year period, of Indutrade’s aggregate after-tax profit of SEK 4,150 million, SEK 1,789 million have been distributed to shareholders, including the year’s recommended dividend, corresponding to a dividend payout ratio of 43% of net profit.
Dividend for 2017
The Board proposes a dividend of SEK 3.75 per share (3.20), corresponding to a total amount of SEK 453 million. The proposed dividend is in line with Indutrade's dividend policy to distribute 30%-60% of net profit.
If the AGM on 26 April 2018 resolves to pay the proposed dividend, the record date will be set to 30 April 2018. Dividends will be distributed via Euroclear Sweden on 4 May 2018.
