An attractive dividend policy

Our yearly dividend is paid in two instalments:

  1. an interim dividend (typically 40% of the previous year’s total dividend), plus a balance payment for the final dividend. The interim dividend is announced with the Third Quarter Results and paid in January.
  2. the final dividend is announced in February, along with our Full Year Results, and is paid after the yearly Shareholders Meeting, in May.
