Dividend

Dividend policy
The Group aims at ensuring a continuously positive cash flow development and consequently the ability to provide our shareholders with an attractive dividend.

The Group has a dividend policy, where Management each year recommends at the Annual General Meeting, that a minimum of 30% of the profit for the year is distributed as an ordinary dividend to shareholders.

After having paid ordinary dividends and with respect of the zero net interest-bearing debt level as at 30 June, any additional surplus liquidity will be distributed to the shareholder through share buy-back or extraordinary dividend.
