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.

At the Annual General Meeting on 2 May 2017 the Board of Directors' proposal of a dividend of 0.48 EUR per share was approved, corresponding to 30 per cent of earnings per share after tax.
