Capital Allocation and Dividend

Matas Group’s capital structure must at all times ensure the financial flexibility required to implement the strategic objectives announced.

The Board of Directors recommends to the annual general meeting that a dividend of DKK 2 per share be declared and paid and that shares in the amount of DKK 75 million be bought back and most of them cancelled. Combined, the proposed dividends and buybacks will be equivalent to 42% of the adjusted profit after tax for the year.

Based on Matas’ commitment to secure the Company’s long-term growth potential and profitability, investments are expected to remain at a historically high level. As a consequence, going forward, distributions by way of dividends and share buybacks are expected to amount to at least 20% compared with the previous 30% or more of adjusted profit after tax.
