Under the dividend policy adopted by Resurs’ Board of Directors, Resurs will initially aim to distribute a minimum of 50 percent of its annual consolidated net profit in medium term.
If Resurs, as a result of its profits and dividend policy, generates a substantial surplus, it is Resurs’ intention to use such surplus either to finance a higher organic growth rate and or future acquisitions, or to pay out the surplus to its shareholders as dividend. Decisions relating to dividend proposals take into account the company’s future revenue, financial condition, capital requirements, Resurs’ capital targets and general economic and operational circumstances.
