Dividend

On February 10, 2010, The Board of Directors decided that the company shall target a solid investment grade long-term credit rating (A- to BBB+) to secure the company’s strategically important financial flexibility for investments in future growth, both organically and by acquisitions.

The ordinary dividend shall be at least 50 percent of net income attributable to owners of the parent company. In addition, excess capital shall be returned to shareholders, after the Board of Directors has taken into consideration the company’s cash at hand, cash flow projections and investment plans in a medium term perspective, as well as capital market conditions.
