Epiroc’s Board proposes to the Annual General Meeting to decide only on the first installment of the dividend
Stockholm, Sweden: The Board of Directors of Epiroc AB proposes to Epiroc’s Annual General Meeting that will take place on May 12, 2020, to decide on the first installment of the dividend and postpone the decision on the planned second installment.
Epiroc has a strong financial position and the Board’s assessment of the dividend capacity has not changed. Therefore, the Board proposes to pay the first installment of the dividend of SEK 1.20 per share. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the increased economic uncertainty, the Board proposes that the decision on the planned second installment of the dividend will be postponed. If the situation allows, the Board of Directors plans to call for an extraordinary general meeting later this year to decide on the second dividend installment for the 2019 fiscal year.
