Dividend policy

The Ratos share should be characterized by steadily increasing dividends over time linked to an increasing profit and a stable financial position. The Board of Directors makes the assessment that with a dividend share of 30–50 percentage of profit after tax attributable to the parent company's owners, these conditions are safeguarded.
