Voor het boekjaar 2017 zal aan de algemene aandeelhoudersvergadering een totaal bruto dividend van 3 euro per aandeel worden voorgesteld, bestaande uit een interim-dividend van 1 euro per aandeel (betaald in november 2017) en een slotdividend van 2 euro per aandeel (wordt betaald in mei 2018). Aan de algemene vergadering zal ook worden voorgesteld 2,7 miljoen aandelen terug te kopen. De redenering daarachter is om zo de aandeelhoudersverwatering tegen te gaan veroorzaakt door de jaarlijkse kapitaalverhogingen voor personeel. Dit komt neer op een pay-out ratio van 59%.

Dividend policy

Source: annual report 2017

Our aim is to achieve a payout ratio (i.e. dividend + coupon paid on outstanding additional tier-1 instruments) of at least 50% of consolidated profit, with an interim dividend of 1 euro being paid in November of each financial year as an advance on the total dividend. In addition to the payout ratio of 50% of consolidated profit, the Board of Directors will each year decide on the distribution of capital above the reference capital position as it sees fit.
