Dividend policy

Source: company website, February 2019

Vopak’s dividend policy targets to pay an annual stable to rising cash dividend in balance with a management view on a payout ratio range of 25-75% of the net profit excluding exceptional items attributable to holders of ordinary shares and subject to market circumstances.

The net profit excluding exceptional items that forms the basis for dividends to be declared may be adjusted for instance for the financial effects of one-off events, changes in accounting policies, acquisitions and divestments.


The net profit excluding exceptional items that forms the basis for dividend payments may be adjusted for the financial effects of one-off events, such as changes in accounting policies, acquisitions and reorganizations. In setting the amount of the dividend, account is taken not only of the company’s desirable capital ratios and financing structure, but also of the flexibility it requires to successfully pursue its growth strategy. At the same time, Vopak seeks to assure its shareholders of a stable trend in dividends.
