Oriola’s aim is to pay out an increasing annual dividend of at least 50 per cent of its earnings per share.
The Annual General Meeting 2021 resolved that a dividend of EUR 0.03 per share shall be paid on the basis of the balance sheet adopted for the financial year ending 31 December 2020. The dividend is paid to shareholders registered in the company's shareholders register held by Euroclear Finland Ltd on the dividend record date 18 March 2021. The payment date of the dividend is 10 June 2021.
In addition, the Annual General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to decide at its discretion on the payment of dividend up to a maximum of EUR 0.03 per share. The authorisation shall be valid until the beginning of the next Annual General Meeting of the company. Unless the Board of Directors decides otherwise for a justified reason, the authorisation will be used to pay dividend in one instalment during the period of validity of the authorisation. In this case the Board of Directors will make a separate resolution on the payment of dividend so that the dividend would preliminarily be paid by the end of November 2021. The company will make a separate announcement of such resolution and confirm the record and payment dates in such announcement. The dividend paid based on the authorisation would be paid to shareholders who on the applicable record date of the dividend payment are registered in the company’s shareholders’ register held by Euroclear Finland Oy.
