Dividend policy

Dividend policy

Accell Group strives for a stable dividend policy, with the aim of distributing at least 40% of net profit. Historically, the dividend payment percentage has been around the 50% level.

 

An optional dividend enables Accell Group to realise a higher pay-out while maintaining a strong balance sheet for the roll-out of our strategy and possible acquisitions. This is an excellent fit with our growth strategy. In addition to a high dividend return for the shareholders, the optional dividend also enables Accell Group to improve its solvency ratio. Our dividend return and the type of dividend we pay out are competitive compared to other listed companies. In the previous four years (2015 to 2018), an average of around 49% of our shareholders opted for stock dividend.
