Dividend proposal 2019 withdrawn
Given the high level of global uncertainty and the very limited visibility on how this crisis might unfold, Signify has decided to withdraw the proposal to pay a dividend of EUR 1.35 per share to ensure resilience in a period of market uncertainty and to further strengthen the company’s financial position. Once market conditions have stabilized, Signify will revisit its capital allocation to shareholders.
Signify intends to pay a stable to increased dividend per share, to be paid out annually in cash. The payment of dividends, if any, and the amounts and timing thereof depend on several factors, including future sales, profits, financial conditions, general economic and business conditions and prospects. Other factors that the Board of Management may deem relevant, as well as other legal and regulatory requirements, may also impact the amount, timing and payment of future dividends. These may be beyond the control of the company.
