Cloetta’s long-term goal is a dividend payout of 40–60 per cent of profit for the year.
The AGM 2023 approved the proposed dividend of SEK 1.00 (1.00) per share for the 2022 financial year corresponding to 104 per cent (61) of profit for the year, equal to 63 per cent of the profit for the year excluding impact of the impairment and provisions and other items affecting comparability relating to the greenfield facility. The record day for the dividend was set for Thursday, 6 April 2023. The payment is expected to be distributed through Euroclear Sweden AB on Thursday, 13 April 2023.
Neither the Swedish Companies Act nor Cloetta’s Articles of Association contain any restrictions regarding the right to dividends for shareholders outside Sweden. Aside from any limitations related to banking or clearing activities in the affected jurisdictions, payments to foreign shareholders are carried out in the same manner as to shareholders in Sweden.
