Dividend policy

The goal is for the dividend to amount to at least 50 percent of the profit for the year.

Dividend policy

Over a business cycle, Bilia’s dividend should provide the shareholders with a competitive dividend yield in comparison with similar listed companies. Good dividend growth is also striven for, and the dividend should amount to at least 50 per cent of the net profit for the year.

Bilia’s earning capacity, cash flow, investment needs and overall financial position are also taken into account when determining the size of the dividend. An effort is also made to ensure that Bilia has an optimal capital structure at any given time. 2019's proposed dividend of SEK 5.25 was withdrawn due to COVID-19 rules.
