Dividend policy and dividends

Kojamo’s objective is to be a stable dividend payer whose annual dividend payment will be at least 60 per cent of FFO, provided that the Group’s equity ratio is 40 per cent or more and taking account of the company’s financial position. There can be no assurances that dividends will be paid in the future, nor are there any assurances as to the amount of dividends to be paid for a particular year.

Dividend for the year 2021

Kojamo plc’s Annual General Meeting decided that a dividend of EUR 0.38 per share be paid for the financial year 2021.

Dividend will be paid to the shareholders who on the record date of the dividend payment, 18 March 2022, are recorded in the company’s shareholders’ register held by Euroclear Finland Ltd. The dividend will be paid on 5 April 2022.

Furthermore, the Annual General Meeting authorized the Board of Directors to resolve in its discretion on the payment of dividend as follows:

The amount dividend to be paid based on the authorization shall not exceed EUR 1.00 per share. The authorization is valid until 31 December 2022. Unless the Board of Directors decides otherwise for a justified reason, the authorization will be used to pay dividend one time during the period of validity of the authorization. The company shall make separate announcement of such resolution and confirm the final record and payment dates in such announcement.

The dividend to be paid based on a resolution of the Board of Directors will be paid to a shareholder registered in the company’s shareholders’ register maintained by Euroclear Finland Ltd on the dividend record date.

All Kojamo’s shares carry equal rights to dividends.
