Dividend and dividend policy
SAS has two share classes listed. Dividends require SAS AB to have distributable earnings and a resolution by a shareholders’ meeting. The Group’s earnings, expected performance, financial position, investment requirements and relevant economic conditions should also be taken into account. The dividend policy endeavors to achieve long-term sustainable dividends.
Dividends to holders of common shares can be paid from value-creation whereby SAS’s return on invested capital exceeds the average cost of capital. The dividend should take into account any restrictions applying to the Group’s financial instruments.
