Dividend Policy

H.U. Group views the return of capital to shareholders as one of its key management priorities.

We accordingly target a consolidated dividend on equity (DOE) ratio, our main key performance indicator for dividends, targeted at the 6% range and furthermore make decisions on dividends upon having comprehensively taken into account factors that include cash flows and the notion of maintaining a sound financial footing over the medium to long term.
