Hapag-Lloyd AG / Key word(s): Dividend
Hamburg, 10 March 2020
Executive Board of Hapag-Lloyd AG resolves to propose a dividend distribution of EUR 1.10 per share to the Annual General Meeting 2020 and adapts Dividend Policy
In addition thereto, the Executive Board has decided in the same meeting to change the current dividend policy (in general up to 20 - 30 % of the consolidated profit) to the extent that Hapag-Lloyd AG intends to generally pay a dividend of at least 30 % of the consolidated profit (IFRS) within its commercial and financial options.
The changed dividend policy allows Hapag-Lloyd AG to appropriately share its success with its shareholders despite economic fluctuations customary in the industry. Simultaneously, the company preserves the required flexibility for further developments and maintains adequate liquidity. The dividend policy is subject to compliance with legal requirements, existing financial agreements, consideration of the market conditions, further development and growth plans as well as maintaining an adequate level of liquidity.
