The Board of Directors will propose to the Annual General Meeting that a dividend of EUR 0.80 per share shall be paid on the basis of the approved balance sheet for 2020. The dividend shall be paid in two installments.
The Board proposes to the AGM that the first dividend installment, EUR 0.40 per share, would be paid on 12 April 2021. The Board proposes to the AGM that the second dividend installment, EUR 0.40 per share, would be paid on 12 October 2021. The Board of Directors is authorized to set a new dividend record date and payment date for the second installment of the dividend, in case the rules and regulations on the Finnish book-entry system would be changed, or otherwise so require.
