The Board of Directors' policy is to propose a dividend increase to the Shareholders Meeting whenever possible and as far as possible never to reduce it. 

For over 30 years, the dividend has been stable or gradually increased and has never been reduced.

The yearly dividend is paid in two installments:

  1. as an interim dividend plus a balance payment corresponding to the final dividend. The interim dividend typically represents 40% (rounded) of the previous year’s final total dividend. It is announced together with 3rd quarter results and paid in January.
  2. The proposed final dividend is announced in February, together with the Group full year results and is paid after the decision of the Shareholders Meeting in May.
