According to Loomis’ dividend policy 40–60 percent of the Group’s income after tax will be distributed as dividend every year.
It is Loomis’ intention to distribute a dividend to shareholders that provides a good return on their investment and represents dividend growth. At the same time the dividend level is adjusted to the Company’s strategy, financial position, other financial objectives and risks that the Board deems relevant. Taking the aforementioned into account, the annual dividend should correspond to approximately 40–60 percent of the Company’s earnings after tax.
The last few years the dividend has amounted to around 50 percent of the Group’s income after tax.
