Dividend policy

The dividend payment depends on the financial results and the equity of DGB Group. In the event of disappointing results or investments, it is possible not to distribute a dividend for that year. If a loss has been incurred in any year, no dividend will be paid for that year. In a dividend proposal, various factors will be taken into accounts, such as the financial and operating result, the capital position, legislation and regulations, and whether the available resources are required for repayment or investments.

The Board of Directors makes a proposal which, with the approval of the non-executive director, determines which part of the profit will be added to the reserves. This is done after the payment of dividends on the preference shares (no preference shares have yet been issued). Thereafter, the General Meeting of Shareholders, on the proposal of the Board of Directors, can resolve to distribute the part of the profit that remains after addition to the reserves as a dividend on the ordinary shares. Payment will be made after the adoption of the annual accounts showing that distribution is permitted.
