Dividend

The Company's Board of Directors has maintained a policy of distributing 40% to 50% of the consolidated profit.

Dividend Distribution Policy

The Company's Board of Directors maintained a policy of dividend distribution based on the following rules:

  • The value of the dividend distributed must be between 40% and 50% of ordinary consolidated net earnings;
  • If, as a result of applying the criteria mentioned above, there is a drop in the dividend in a certain year compared to that of the previous year, and the Board of Directors considers that this decrease is a result of abnormal and merely circumstantial situations, it may propose that the value from the previous year should be maintained. It may even resort to free existing reserves, providing that the use of these reserves does not jeopardise the principles adopted for balance sheet management.
