In an effort to increase the transparency towards the financial community, Solvay has chosen Vara Research, an independent service provider, to collect the most recent analysts’ estimates: 

Please note that 2019 figures will be presented after application of IFRS16, and thereby differ from the accounting treatment of 2018. Since 2019 estimates do not yet reflect this implementation, the consensus is not presented. Pro forma 2018 figures will be provided early March. A new consensus will be captured at that time.

Solvay is covered by various financial analysts providing their own analyses and earnings estimates on the company.

Het dividendbeleid van de Raad van Bestuur is erop gericht om, waar mogelijk, een dividendverhoging voor te stellen aan de Algemene Vergadering van Aandeelhouders en het dividend voor zover mogelijk nooit te verlagen. 

In de afgelopen 30 jaar is het dividend geleidelijk en regelmatig verhoogd en nog nooit verlaagd.

Het jaarlijkse dividend wordt uitgekeerd in twee tranches: als een interimdividend en een slotdividend.

  1. Het interimdividend bedraagt meestal (afgerond) 40% van het uiteindelijke totale dividend dat over het voorgaande jaar is uitgekeerd. Het interimdividend wordt samen met de resultaten voor het 3kwartaal bekendgemaakt en uitgekeerd in januari.
  2. Het voorgestelde slotdividend wordt bekendgemaakt in februari, samen met de Groep-resultaten voor het volledige boekjaar, en uitgekeerd in mei na goedkeuring bij besluit van de Algemene Vergadering van Aandeelhouders.

 

Dividend payments for the fiscal year 2019 will be available in October 2019
