Dividend

The Board has come to the conclusion, despite the challenging conditions, that the proposed dividend (SEK 7.00) amount will not jeopardize the company's ability to make the necessary investments and support ongoing operations, including support to our customers and employees. The Annual General Meeting 2020 approved the Board's proposal of the first installment of the dividend (equal to SEK 3.50) with record date April 27, 2020. The final decision about the proposed second installment (equal to SEK 3.50) will be postponed until the consequences of the corona pandemic can be better assessed. The Board currently intends to provide notice of an Extraordinary General Meeting to take place in due time before the planned second installment, at which this matter will be addressed.
