Return on net assets

Shareholder-friendly capital allocation

  • The Group’s goal is for the dividend to correspond to approximately 50% of the annual income.
  • The Board’s objective is to maintain a solid investment grade rating, as defined by leading rating institutes, meaning that over time the Group’s net debt should not exceed two (2) times EBITDA.
  • In July 2021, the Board decided to distribute a larger part of the value created to the shareholders after a review of the Group’s capital structure. Read more on
