The company’s goal is to provide its shareholders with competitive returns on invested capital by distributing dividends and by an increase in value on the share price.

When considering the level of the dividend payout, the Board of Directors has attached importance to ensuring sufficient equity for the company in a fluctuating market, financial resources for future growth and lowest possible capital expenditure. These factors are weighed up against the requirement for competitive yield for shareholders.
