The Board of Directors of AAK AB (publ.) has decided to propose to distribute a dividend of SEK 2.10 per share to the shareholders for the financial year 2019. The proposal will be presented for resolution at an Extraordinary General Meeting that is expected to be held on November 26, 2020.
Ahead of the Annual General Meeting on May 13, 2020, the Board of Directors of AAK AB decided, as a precaution due to the spread of the coronavirus, to withdraw its previous proposal to distribute dividend for the financial year 2019, and, if circumstances would allow, to convene an extraordinary meeting of shareholders during the fall of 2020 to make a resolution on dividend. Considering AAK’s performance and solid balance sheet, the board now considers that conditions are suitable to pay a dividend according to the original proposal.
The notice to attend the Extraordinary General Meeting will be published within short.
