Dividend

Future dividends will be adjusted in line with, for example, Hexagon's earnings and equity ratio, financial position and future development potential. The dividend policy of the Group provides that, over the long-term, dividends should comprise 25 to 35 per cent of earnings per share after tax, assuming that Hexagon satisfies its equity ratio objective.

The Annual General Meeting on 10 May 2016 approved the Board of Directors' proposal of a dividend of 0.43 EUR per share, corresponding to 31 per cent of earnings per share after tax.
